LINCOLN AND SPOKANE
ALL READY FOR GAME
Well, that big game billed for
tomorrow between the Spokane and
Lincoln high teams conies off all
right. The Lincoln squad arrived
this morning and ?Ize up as a good,
lively bunch of huskies. They are
unusually heavy for a high school
team, having one 100 and an 180
--pounder on the team, and Spokane
will be outweighed several pounds
to the man.

play, however, using the forward

confident of taking the game to
morrow, notwithstanding that the

took the game by a r>B-0 score, and
will go into the contest with the
determination to fight all the way.

Sizing up the game from afar, it

It has practically been decided
in Portland that Nick Williams, the

McCredies to run the Portland

season. Nick is surely the man for
the place, as he has been handling
the Seals on the road for some sea
sons past and knows the game
thoroughly. It Is also figured that
Casey, Speas, Ort, Garret and

iams as the nucleus for the North
western team. These boys will
make a splendid foundation for a
team, and with a bunch of young
sters to work with them they
should make the other Northwest

out. By the way. if Speas and Ort

It is now proposed to rehabili

was one of the few that failed to
finish its schedule last season. Ac
cording to present arrangements,
the league will be composed of
Stockton, San Jose, Vallejo and
Oakland. This is the circuit which
organized baseball has been asked
to protect. As Coast league terri
tory Oakland is included in the
league, the powers of the National
Association have requested the pro
moters to first secure the consent
of Ed Walter before their approval
is given. As most of the games
will be ployed outside of Oakland,
it is likely that he will sanction
a second team. The State league
was a success until it aspired to
compete with the Coast league,
when it lost money. With a mod

chiefly of local players a league
of this sort ought to make a go

THE SPOtAAKE Pftgg?
HAS EARNED $5000 IN RING IN EIGHT MONTHS,
BUT ASKS HIS MOTHER FOR SPENDING MONEY
NEW YORK, Nov. 23.—5-a-y!
His name is Valentine! What do
you think of that?
Valentine (Knockout) Brown,
who in eight months has taken
home |5000 and dumped it into
"the old woman's" apron, responds
to the "fancy monacher, when his
This boy, who sports the ear
marks of a lightweight champion
in the making, lives with his par
ents, a brother, a married sister,
nephew and niece and two dogs, in
four rooms, on the second floor of
a First avenue tenement. The
entrance, a plain varnished door, is
flanked by a Chinese laundry and
a butter and_egg store.
Mrs. Brown says she used to
worry when Valenttne (get that
Valentine, it's rich) went out to
fight, but now—well, he will fight
anyway, so she don't mind it so
Of the money he has received
from 79 fights Brown hasn't kept a
cent. His spending money is what
his mother allows him. He has
no exalted ideas and no expensive
tastes to gratify. A $15 serge suit
is good enough for him, and with
a golf cap and russet shoes com
pletes his sartorial layout.
Brown is only 19. Outside of the
ring he is a quiet, mild-mannered
boy, with little to say. There is
nothing pugnacious about him. In
the ring he is a ferocious fighter
with a streak of viciousness. He
wades in and beats his opponents
down like a cyclone.
Brown has been fighting a little
more than two years. In this time
he has had 79 battles and has not
tasted decisive defeat. He earned
the name Knockout by winning his -
first 17 scraps with a sleep punch.
He won the eighteenth with a de
cision, then knocked out eight more
in a row. Since then he has lanaed
the sleeper 15 times.
For his early appearances Brown
received a dollar, and sometimes
two when the house was filled. He
was only a 100-pounder then. He
didn't have seconds, not a manager
seeing anything in him. He used
to leave home with his togs under
his street clothes and only had to
strip to be ready.
In his early days Brown's suc
cess depended upon a left hand
punch that spelled morphia, a badly
crossed eye and a right hand and
foot stuck out where his left
foot stuck out where his left should
be. He got along all right, but it
wasn't until Danny Morgan took
hold of him a year ago that he
forged to the front.
When Brown outgrew the feath
ers Morgan challenged the 133
--pounders instead of trying to keep
the boy in a class where he had
no business, something other man
agers might copy.
Brown is out after the light
weight title, and on past perform
ances appears to be legitimately
entitled to a chance with Wolgast
or any top notcher. The decisive
manner in which he defeated Tom
my Murphy, himself a first ranker,
is eloquent testimony of his class.
PRINCETON NOT TO PLAY

Harvard would shortly Blgn a five
year football agreement and that
games between the two would be
resumed next year, is denied by

This Is the saeson when ama
teur base ball managers, in the
guise of sport writers, begin to tell
the ma —nagement how it should
have run the team, and how to con
tinue to run it.
1 am reminded of this by para
graphs written by a veteran base
ball writer who has succumbed fo
the amateur manager bee.
"Although the team had won
four games in a row, Manager
defied the fates and shift
ed his batting order —with the
usual result —the enemy won as
they pleased," says the vet. _
Now the management —he
sought to criticise had been trying
out youngsters in almost every
position. The day the lineup was
changed the best left-hander in the
league pitched against them. Two

south side of the plate were hoist

And why not,, pray tell? Why
shouldn't a player who has been'
out of the game while a young
ster fills hlB place in every way,
and a wee bit better than he has
been doing for some time past, be
glad to get back? Why shouldn't
he show his best? In this case
the youngster shows every indica
tion of crowding the vet off the
job. And as for loyalty—well,
when a player's job is fading away,
loyalty or something else is pretty
apt to show up.
"Most of the fans regarded It
as a mistake to take ■ out
of the game."
Another case of a veteran who
was benched to give a comer an
opportunity. The chances are the
manager knew better than the
critic why the youngster was
played. As it happened, the kid
