"I tell you frankly what I told the war department," wrote Corbett to Van Court. "That is, there Is no greater teacher of boxing In Amer ica today than DeWitt Van Court! "Yours was the first name I suggested to the war depart ment, and it certainly de lighted me to get your letter of acceptance. I knew you were willing to 'do your bit.' "There is Just one man in your section that I felt was Ideal for the position, and that was DeWitt Van Court." Van Court has been em ployed as boxing Instructor at the Los Angeles Athletic club for many years, going there from San Francisco, where he held a similar posi tion, with the Olympic club. It was Van Court who taught It Is certainly a fact that Eddie Cicotte will start the first game in Chicago Saturday, but there is nothing certain about who will pitch the second. If Cicotte should win, it Is probable Red Faber, an other right hander, will be sent against the Giants. If Cicotte should lose, it is said Rookie Pitcher Gets Rare Chance To Show His Worth Any veteran manager would have thought twice before doing what Lee Fohl, Cleveland Indian pilot who Jumped Into the lime light right out of the minors, did. Lee Fohl had not even played big league baseball before hit was' chosen to make a first division team out of a bunch of trailers last year. He did, and what's more he has opened the eyes of the dyed-in-the-wool leaders by put ting up one of the most brilliant fights for the lead the American league has staged for some time. The Indians are third, as Ty Cobb and Hughie Jennings will have to admit. It has been the pitching that has robbed the Tigers of third place. And the man behind the pitch- i ing is Lee Kohl. The Indian pilot oan be classed with Wilbur Robin- ' son of the Dodgers as a developer • of pitchers.

Jim Corbett boxing when Jim was a member of the big San Francisco club. Altho over the 60-year mark, Van Court is still hale and hearty, and Is able to box with the youngest of his pu pils. His remarkable vitality is due, he claims, to his con stant work In the squared cir cle. The veteran was overjoyed to receive news of his ap pointment. "I feel the men who teach our soldiers to box will be doing America a great serv ice," he declared. "Boxing will make real men of the city fellows who have been kept away from athletics for years, as many of the con scripted men have been. "The adoption of boxing by our government means a re vival of the sport after the war, and that, also, I ara glad to see. "I may be a little too old to shoulder a rifle, but I'm pleased to be able to take to predict that Reb Russell will | get the assignment. Taking Row land at his word, then, it is equally safe to say that Cicotte will work the third game—in New York —and that his successor on the mound for the fourth game will be the man who -pitched the second game in Chicago. perlorlty to their new manager, just as Rube Marquard owes his pitching ability to Wilbur. Now comes the surprise to vet eran baseball—Lee Fohl, Rookie himself, has put a brand new i rookie pitcher to work sooner than any long experienced manager would dare do. Only a short time ago, Ted Torkelson, a young llght halred, right-hand spitballer, came to Cleveland from Marshall town, la., and has already faced tho Tigers and the Browns. The young pitcher is not much different from any other, so far as looks go, but he has shown he can pitch—and field, too. Ty Cobb and Bob Veach remember one strikeout against each by thla rookie, and Ty will especially keep Torkelson In mind for being caught off first by a foot. Lee Fohl won't say much about his new pitcher. He never prom ises, but he goes ahead and does. AVALON, Cal., Sept. 24.— Twice within two weeks the world's swordflsh record was broken by anglers at the famous Catalina island big game fishing banks. The first record fish of the sea son was taken by A. C. Parsons of San Francisco. Then W. C. Boschen, world's greatest deep sea fisherman, knocked Parson's record Into a cocked hat with a leviathan weighing 463 pounds. Parson's fish weighed 422 pounds and fought desper ately for 0 hours and S min utes before he waa brought to gaff. Altho Boschen's fish was con siderably larger, he did not put up as thoro a bat lo as did the San Franciscan's catch. The dimen sions of the new world's record fish are: Length, 12 feet; girth, 4 feet 8 Inches. "I made this catch with the regulation tuna tackle," said Boschen. "I used a 12-ounce rod and a 24 strand line. There were times In the battle when I had out a thousand feet of line. On sev eral occasions the fish leaped clear of the water, turning a complete somersault In his frantic efforts to free himself from the hook." The greatest danger In catching swordflsh is tbe risk the angler runs In bring ing tlie monster to gaff. In threshing about In the water close to the boat and fish may speer either the fisherman or the boat with his huge sword which is often four foet long. This spear Is tho fish's only weapon of defense, and the huge tail which propels him gives tremendous force to Mk thrusts. Claims Record lt)alte4 Preaa Lease* Wire.) OAKLAND. Cal., Oct.

"Red" Oldham, southpaw of the San Francisco Seals, Is one of the 363 rd mem bers, and there are several other players almost as good.
