"IFS" PREDOMINATE BASEBALL OUTLOOK FOR SEATTLE TRIBE [Training Camp Season I Will Iron Out Answers Gregg, Shaw, Goebel, Cueto, Ken worth y-K. rug Deal and Connolly Are AH Uncertain; Catchers Sure of. Jobs BY LEO 11. LASSEN \NY "if#" figure in Seattle's baseball outlook for the 1922 season, with the opening of the training season but a few weeks in the offing. Here are a few of them: IF Vean Gregg can pitch like he used to he will be the class of the league's south paw?. V IF Jim Shaw's knee is O. K. and he has re covered from his wildness, which always marred his work in the big show, he will rank with the best righthanders in the cir cuit — WUIU IF Tommy Connolly lives up to expectations he will plug second base acceptably. IF s deal is completed with Portland for the transfer of Marty Krug and Bill Kenworthy Krug will step into the key stone job and Connolly take over the shortstop position. IF Edwin Goebel is turned over to Seattle by Washington he will complete one of the greatest outfields in the minors. IF Manud Cueto has lost none of his baseball skill during his two-year lay-off he will plug the third base gap in the Seattle club. It's a great life, this 4'if" business, and only time will tell how they are to turn out GRECO IS no vnnuN Onti b still 11 n»| man.

The Internation al leatoe star promised to Seat tle by the Washington club on the Kay Francis transaction may he retained by Washington If they can sarint the deal with Se attle. The recent trade that IC rocked the bit league* In which Roger Perklnpaugh, Joe Acoala, Bint Bint Miliar and Joe llutsn were Involved, sent Aenata and Miller to the Athletics from Washington. This left the Na tionals with but three outfielders. They need a good right handed hitting fly cop and (iorbel la jast that. Already Waahington has started to dicker with Seattle for the substitution of a man or twe for Ibe Reading graduate. Ct'KTO SHOLI'I) DKIJVKK Like Yean Gregg, Manuel Cueto may be some time In hitting the stride that he ahowed In the National league three or four years ago. He haa been out of hasebull for aome time, altho it la said that lie haa played In Cuba.

Washington Faces Big Cage Series Next Week Huskies Battle Idaho Vandals on Their Home Floor; Idahoans Have Five-Man Combination Play; Last Trip of Season for Locals IDAHO'S Vandals, tied with Washington In the coast con ference race and touted as the strongest five the Huskies will meet this season, will attempt to stop Wash ington. February 14 and 15, on the Moscow floor. Wash ington will meet Washington State in a return series at Pullman, 17 and 18, and return for the last games of" the season with the Oregon Aggies in Seattle March 3 and 4. Whether Idaho has l>een over-advertised is the question that Coach Kdmundson's ball-tossera will determine when they tangle with the' Vandals next week. Idaho has only played four games in the Coast race, taking a pair from Oregon by long scores and nosing*out Pullman in one win and taking the other by a good margin. The Vandal* have not up the scorea In their tamaa that the Huekiae have mad*, but Coach Boliltr, of Washington state, w.irns the local nvs to watch tha clevar five man tame tha U«m State bcyt have developed In the Knx broth era and Thompaon, Idaho haa a • hootina and hard playtn« oomblna tion tlttt may put the crimp in Waatungton'a cbainpionahip praa pacta.

Leonard Opens Lightie Cleanup in Manhattan Champion Benny Takes on Rocky Kansas in 15- Round Bout; Leonard May Move Into Welter Divi sion Soon, for Lack of Lightweight Opponents KNNY LEONARD opens his "tournament for lightweight contenders" tonight at Madisoc Square Garden against Uocky Kansas, the squat, hard-socking Italian. Since winning his title, Leonard has graduated into a class by himself, until he stands in about the same relation to the rest of the 135-pound mitt men that Jack Dempscy does to the world's crop of heavy weight fighters. l>eonard has announced that he will give •■very lightweight with a record impressive enough to en title hnn to a chance, a crack at the title during the present year, and will then retire. That BSnny will retire while at the top of his fighting career, however, is doubtful. If he goes thru the year without defeat, which appears practically certain, he is likely to enter the welterweight division in search of new worlds to conouer. Leonard is a heavy lightweight as it is. and will probably be stronger if he fights at hia natural poundage, which is about 140 pound*.
