BIG SPECIAL FEATURES TIGER TEAM IS LOOKING KINDA GOOD TO FANS The 1915 baseball situation will come to a head this week.

Rubs Hall, manager of the KING OF DRIVERS' SECRET OF SUCCESS IS MERELY HARD WORK IW. O. DURFEE. BAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 1. — 'he greatest driver in the world —without qualification," Is the rating of horsemanship given William O. Durfee of Los An geles by John W. Considine, the millionaire turfman. In 1914 Durfee, son of Charles A. Durfee, a famous relnsman, won 27 out of 46 races, and was only out of the money three times. He won in purses $22, --480 on these events. But young Durfee's greatest ac- j . oomplishment last season was his record in bringing eight trotters' down to 2:10 or better ,a feat| ■aver before accomplished. Three! . of these were three-year-olds. | They were the horses of Clarence ' J. Berry of Los Angeles. "Hard work and watch your business." That is Durfee's sini i pie slogan for his phenomenal success with the reins. "Other than hard work, I do not know what else there is to the light ■ harness game. "When I am on the track," he •zplained, "I watch only my own horse. What the other fellow does la none of my business.

Johnny Butler, the crackerjack Tiger shortstop, has sent in his contract, and will be the only player of last year's team to get an increase In salary. But ler Is playing winter ball in Cali fornia. It is possible that Gallon will play nhort, with' Butler on third and At Sctiled, a new re cruit from Holy Cross college, on first. Frambaeh, a youngster who Is described by Mike Lynch as a "phetiom," has been signed up to pitch for Tacoma. He had a poor start with Portland last year and was released before he showed his mettle. Men who have seen him in action declare he is a won der with the pill. his best race. When I have him •right' I figure I have a chance no matter what other horses are competing. "Of course, a trainer must know his own horse; he must know in what kind of company he can travel. This naturally re quires study and strict attention to business." Attention to business so far as Will Uurfee is concerned means this: Preliminary driving in the morning on race days. Driving 12 or 15 miles in an afternoon, beside warming up his horse from 12 to 15 miles more. Superintends the cooling off of his racers. % FAMOUS "WHENS" SIX CHIPS OFF THE OLD BLOCK AND THEY ISSUE A CHALLENGE TO ANY OTHER FAMILY IN U. S. Here are six Chips and the old Block off which they came. No one yet has been able to knock the block off the old Chip either, or many chips off the block. They are the flghtingest* scrap pingest family In America — and if anyone of the six Chips thinks he can light the old man he'll take them on at catch weights out back of the woodshed and take all their title away from them. The six sons of George Chip, sr., all are boxers and they chal lenge any family In the world to a battle royal. Any family aspir ing to clean up the family would better hew close to the Hue, for the Chips will fly In more differ ent directions than the compass possesses.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30.. — For 20 years Sol Levlnson his been refereeing on the "bush cir cuit of flstiaua in California without once "having to run for a train." Sol boasts about it as a soldier might show you a medal for bra/ ery. To referee that long "In the bush" without being stormed by irate fight fans entitles a man to honorable mention,, believes Lev inson. "I'm willing to admit," he says, "that I have been nervous on oue or two occasions. But I've never been ridden out of town on a rail. My hair hasn't even been muss ed." And Sol's hair USED TO BK nice and wavy, too! Levlnßou Is about ready to mi grate from California to some far | land where men are still allowed ! to go at each other with gloves. Twenty years ago he was just an ordinary glove maker. He knew absolutely nothing about the fight game until he met Johnny Hergrt, better known as Young Mitchell, at the Olympic Club here. Herget I complained to him that fighters' i gloveß were not satisfactorily! made. "Sol," he said, "why don't you see what you can do?" Sol did "see," and he "saw" so well that he had a new fighting mit patented, a device to make them close easily. After that it came easily enough, the promotion of fights and the refereeing. The crowds in the smaller lo calities," said Levlnson, "would surprise you. They analyze the fights far better than do the city crowds.

After thorough press agenting John threw oped the club for the first affair at whicn he promise 1 feminine boxing en thusiasts would gather. It was pretty tough on John. There were plenty of "gents" in their short-sleeves, who chawed gum because John had admonish ed them not to smoke in the pres ence of "ladles," but there, was only one "lady" present.

Charlie, Paul and Ignatius nil are boxers. Jimmy Dime, the irrepressible impreesarlo of the prize ring, has adopted the entire Chip family and is official manager of the tribe. All six of the boys are In active training under the man agement of Dime and he can ar range one of the loveliest little boxing shows In the country without leaving the dinner table. One might Imagine that a real family row In the Chip family would he great—sso worth of fighting free—but as a matter of fact they are one of the happiest and most peaceable of families, and devoted to each other. If anyone swung on Ignatius there would be an air full of Chips lv a minute—and probably a dime or two mixed in for Jimmy has fallen In love with the whole tribe and considers himself a member of the family. * ♦ * lUrtih OF HONOR s> * Among the latest Taco- <^ 0 mans to purchase stock In V -» the Tacoma Northwestern <*> # Baseball club are D.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. I.—A horseback ride across the conti nent by cowboys, from San Fran cisco to New York, is the project ed plan of Henry O. Weber of Cody, Wyoming. The race, for which Weber claims he has already enlisted half a dozen horsemen of the plains, is to be entirely for glory. No rewards are to be offered, and the ride must be made with the original mount. The early part of March will witness the start from here if Weber's plan materializes. "I want to prove that such a ride ran be made," explained Web er, who used to ride his 18 miles a day in the Wyoming mountains as a mail carrier. "And I want to show the world, furthermore, that it can be done on a humane basis. "The boys who will ride will have to take care of their horses. Each night tliey will have to re port to the local humane officer, and give his mount at least 10 hours' rest. 1 "I figure we can make as good as 50 miles a day. and can com plete the 3,100 miles In from nine to 1 0 weeks. "I want this to be the best test of horsemanship ever made in this country." Weber is scouting around for more entrants.
