WEST AND BEST M THE WOULD ©F SPORTS The Fanning Bee asual Comment on Sport Things That Have Hap pened, Are Hapening or Might Happen. BY "MAO." Joe Cohn. president and general hi yu tillicum of the Spokane Indians, is hitting the trail eastward in search of ball plyers for next season. Joe says he wants a couple of pitchers and an tnflelder. Yes, Joseph, and you want a few more players, also. If the Siwashes are to keep their champ stride next season, they've got to have a whole bunch of new blood to take the place of the six cracker jacks lost this season. • ••**• If Uncle Joe Cohn could only develop Walter McCredie's eagle eye for promising ball players, or else become infused with some of the McCredle luck, he would have about the strongest team of youngsters ever seen in the northwest next season; for McCredie certainly stumbles onto more big baseball finds than any other manager on the coast. • ***»• .jAnd speaking of baseball managers and their teams, you've certainly SJTTO hand it to Happy Hogan of the Vernon Villagers in the Coast league as the best manager in the west, bar none. Who but "Hap" could have pulled off his stunt of taking a bunch of Coast league castoffs last season and developing them into a team which, while not far up in the percentage column, was acknowledged to be the most dangerous in the league? Who but this same Hogan could have added a few new men to this same bunch of castoffs and put them in the running all the way in the second year the team was organized? Show us another who could do It, and we'll certainly take off our hat to him—and we'll keep it off. *•*♦•* Certain baseball bugs and sport writers are fretting their pretty heads and muddling up their brains over the question of whether W. H. Lucas, late president of the Northwestern league, was fired or quit of his own accord. Now, what's the use of worrying over a trifle like that, when we are certain of the big thing, and that is that, which <»ver way it happened, Lucas "has went." The trouble with the Northwestern league for some time has been too much Lucas. The league magnates recog nized this fact; Lucas' term expired and another man was elected in his place. We're rid of Lucas, so, as the Dutchman says, "what makes It a dltference" how we got rid of him' *•*••• The loyal baseball fans of Portland to the number of nearly 1500 met the Portland Beavers, Coast league champions, when they arrived in that city yesterday afternoon, cheered them to the echo and then paraded them through the streets. They have also arranged a benefit fund of 11100 for the boys and will augmen this by several hundred dol lars more with a benefit game to be played next Sunday. Some little difference between this and the welcome the Spokane Indians received when they came back home for the post season. The local champs slipped into town as though they were ashamed of it, and we hardly knew they were home until the next day. The Portland reception will make the Beavers feel like getting out and working harder next year. **••»»' "Rube" Levy, Spokane's clever little infielder, who Is wintering In California, writes that he has located a good pitcher and a catcher for !„ n\i f ans , ne , xt yoar - The >' B row good ball players on the bushes down ™i? ...

RAIN HANDICAPS ST A TE COLLEGE The steady downpour of rain for tho past couple of days at Pullman has made It impossible for the Washington State team to indulge in outdoor scrimmages in prepara tion for the big game with Wash ington university in Spokane next Saturday.

In spite of the present diwwicul ties, however, the student body is enthusiastic over the prospect of winning, and every loyal state col legian who can get away will ac company the team to Spokane to root for victory. GIANT IS LEADER IN MICHIGAN TEAM BENBROOK, MICHIGAN CAP TAIN. In Benbrook, chosen last year by Wulter Camp for his All-Amerlcan eleven, Michigan has a leader who Is expected to cuptuln his team 1° victory over Michigan and Minne sota or go down to ignominious de feat. Just what the caliber of the Mlchigau eleven Is this year no one seems to know, although the vic tory over Syracuse has set the men who picked the eleven as weak to doing some thinking.

' SPORT SPICE DIAMOND GOSSIP John Kllng. who, prior to last month, was referred to as the greatest catcher in the world, plays pool when suffering from ennui. The game is as much busi ness as it is a pastime, however, Kling owning a private ambition to become champion. Remember the strain you whistled a few years back, "Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie "? Well, how about Johnson, Hank Griffin, Langford. Dixie Kid and a few more clouds who obscure the white man's sun? Horace Fogel is the caudal appendage of the Garry Herrmann-C. Webb Murphy baseball kite. Hope the national commish doesn't try to shunt the little National league scandal off onto the shoulders of a "nice old lady." Can this player deal between Philadelphia and Cincinnati be proper tied "inside stuff." Looks as if Fogel was the outside man, all right. Frank Gotch has retired, so Zbyszko is coming back to this country. He took a speed pill just after his defeat by Gotch and headed toward Poland. If the 1910 Indiana eleven isn't remembered in song and story, It will be because all the Hoosier poets have turned playwrights. • •»»»• The rest of the balk line sharks have as much business fooling around Willie Hoppe as that celluloid dog had with the asbestos cat. »•»•*• With the big 'uns on the shelf, the wees are enjoying the harvest — referring to the boxing game, old top. *••*•• Lina says she's coming across, but not to sue Sheriff Rob.

"They do," and mentions Mrs. Haggin, Mrs. Oelrichs, Mrs. Astor, Mrs. Pearson and the other girls in our set to prove she wins. • ••••• The fly (insect) in the aviation ointment is the fact that Moissant, the Chicagoan, used a French machine to take the $10,000 Belmont to Liberty to Belmont trick. Mr. Windleague Fletcher will soon realize the difference between contracts calling for $5000 forfeits should the party of the second part sign with some other league, and collecting the same $5000 from the players. Who ever heard of a ball player with $5000? In the winter time? ***••• .How long may Miss Liberty be expected to maintain that ancient pose with those dashing airmen flirting around? SPOKANE HIGH CHANGES LINE Spokane high school will go into the game with Wenatchee, at the Apple city, next Saturday with the lineup considerably changed. Wat son will play at tackle instead of Thompson, and Miller will hold down the end. The boys have a stiff game ahead of them, but are working hard in preparation and with the team play well developed and a liberal use of the forward pase, should return home the vic tors.

This photograph was made just before the Ordeman-Cutler match for the heavyweight catch-as-catch can championship of America be tween Henry Oredman and Kid Cutler. Frank Gotch, retired cham pion, refereed. The impression that Gotch ten dered the championship of the world to the winner is an error. Gotch stated before the contest Open Evenings. that he bad no right to give away, the world's title because both! Ordeman and Cutler bad been beat en by Mahmout and Zbyszko. Ordeman, having won the match, from Cutler, will go after some easy meat in Doc Roller. Then he will meet Jess Westergard of Dee Moines and Americus, the Balti more light heavyweight.
