A baud played, A congressman threw tho rir«t bull, and an that sort of thing. Meanwhile I was chatting with an Indian In the far corner of tho Atlilotlcs' dugout. Connie -Mack considers him (ho (jrentest money pitcher of nil time.

Harry -scott of The Al- taian of Calgary believes a lineup selected from the three clubs — Purrte Army, of Calgary, the Calgary - combines (Navy and Air Force) and the A20 Arjny Wheelers of Red Deer would beat the Montreal Cnnadiens.

All but Cairns arc former National League players. "As I look out my window in tlie Poolln'll City," write Scott, "business Is brisk at liiq liquor vendor's next door nnd (he Rockies cupped with snow never appeared more picturesque, it Is Just like summer l» this bannna ijoH."
