Rav Kalllo Is working out with the '
regulars of the Oakland squad now and
seems to be a fixture with the rlub.
He has been going good In the practice
games. Ills old "side kick," Sammy
Beer, has already cinched his place and
Is looked upon as the star of the pitch

In the event that Kalllo Is let out

Great Falls club In the Northwestern
league, under his old manager. Bill
Hurley.

Connie, however, is almost alone in
his belief that the Athletics will finish
better than seventh or eighth. The con
sensus of opinion is that the outfit he
will head In 1916 will be too "green" to
make any real showing
Looking over the roster of the Ath

Fournier isn't a very classy fielder,

at second, needs no further introduc

ably will land tho regular shortstop

Weaver to third There are few short
stops In the game who can outfield the
dashing "Buck." but Rowland thinks
his infield would be much more formid

lard are reported as being "peev

trained pretty fine for the big bout
in Gotham Saturday night. Willard
isn't done as "fine" as some of his
followers would like to see him, ac
cording to all reports, but he is in
good shape and tie fans look for a
hard battle.
DDLLETINS of tie Willard-Moraa
fight will be called from The
Herald balcony on Saturday evening.
The bout should start about 8 odock,
El Paso time.
J-)0N'T forget the "wake" of the
City Basketball league at the Y,
M. C. A. this evening. It promiess to
be a real lively affair. There's going
to be a hot discussion over the right
of certain teams for a "cut" in the
gate receipts. And nobody is going
to be able to declare a dividend.
QHICAGO A. C. is to spend $60,000
on a new "sun parlor." Sunshine
must come high in the Windy City.
It would be cheaper to send their
athletes for a short jaunt to El Paso.
JVJ0W that tie time of the WUlard-
Moran fight is close at hand, the
critics are getting down to naming
their choices. Most of them are for
Willard but if Moran wins you'll
find that the great majority will be
writing "I told you so" stuff. That's

Willard Train Hard.
That Jess Willard has a mind of his
own and a desire to leave nothing un

trained to the highest possible notch
was clearly demonstrated vesterday
when he insisted on going through a
full session of gym work as well as
six fast rounds of boxing. This was

for him b Tom Jones, his manager.

but the Kansan told the picture men
to ill tomorrow.
The rhamplon weighed after his

fgistered 2501-2 pounds. Willard
himself says that he will be a trifle
under 250 pounds when he gets into
the ring, although he will ease UP to

And yet the Chicago scribes with the

show any results from the big eat

eastern papers of last Monday,
had not then signed his contract with
the Red Sox, alleging that they
wanted to slice his salary from
$16,000 to $8000. Tns points out that
he remained loyal to his club during
the baseball war and that he is at
least worth as much as some of the
stars who jumped and have been
taken back into the fold at fat
salaries. Speaker will have the fans
with him in his contract trouble. It
is likely that the Boston club will
be reasonable and compromise with
the star outfielder.

of the National league batters
this year but he isn't showing the
