Eailroad -was fishing in the famed Iceberg Lake near here In this lake Mother Nature has provided the fish a species of trout "with a fur skin for protection against the cold Using an ordinary hook will do no good as the water is so cold that hook breaks as soon as it touches- the water Ilickcn heated a hook and when it touched the water it became tempered The fish bite only on a rare type of bait the "Beazel" from the Prince Edward Island A short time after being taken from the water the change of temperature caused the fish to "explode" the skin and fur coming off leaving the meat ready

play to the season all of us are better qualified through watching the bidders in action to use guesses of position ratings and real power than when the race commenced in April A lot of thines can happen in baseball over fifteen series of seven games each and it may be possible that the real fig-lit for the 1927 banner will come in the second half and if it does so much the better for the game

club has not been able to gain any ground The coming of Flvstsacker Branom of the Athletics who played here one Spring with the Kansas City Club will help There are other rhnnges coming up and should Portland get a center fielder who can cover the ground it might be In the first group if Clssell does not boot too many Too Many Youngsters The Missions and the Seals have the same weakness Too many young ball players who are not likely to go so well In the second time around the circuit as the first For the past few weeks porno of the bright stars tif the opening series have been faltering and

submitted to special physical examination by the New York Boxing Commission Picture! Mar Delay Dempsey late to-day — If it Is not too dark for the photographers— will accept Tex Kickard's terms to meet Jacjt Sharkey and to fight Gene Tunney for the championship if he wins from Sharkey Sharkey will do the same thing Those are the features of a ceremony that will start Rickard on what he hopes to be one gate of $1000000 and a second of $2000000 Everybody concerned seems to be happy and satisfied with the excep tion of Gene Tunney the champion Gene la Figuring Tunney one of his "official family" said does not like the Idea of a Dempsey-Sharkey fight on the theory that it Is a big gamble that might go the wrong way and hurt or ruin the championship fight Best For Rickard "We will not dispute the business sagacity of Tex Rickard in arranging a match between Dempsey and Sharkey because it is sure to be a financial success" the speaker said "But we are concerned about the effects of this fight on the championship match that is to follow The schedule for the second half of a split season of the Sacramento Valley Leagus which will be composed of but six teams has been announced as follows: July 3rd Marysvllle at Orovllle Heesemans at Chico Colusa at Willows July 4th Colusa

Heesemans at Oroville (RY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS) Splitting even on their two-game series the league-leading Pirates and Cubs t trned their batting barrages upon slightly less formidable foes to-day When the Pirates downed their challengers the Cubs 4 to 0 yesterday they not only retained their narrow margin of leadership in tbe league but also held the lead in the private duel between the two clubs Of twelve games they have played the Pirates have won seven and the Cubs five Stars Help Pirates After being out-pitched out-hit and out-fielded in the first game the Pirates came back strong for their victory To win they needod the best efforts of their league-leading stars — Lee Meadows who has won a better percentage of games than any other National League hurler Paul Waner who Is setting the pace In runs hits doubles and triples and Harris who haaf the best batting average j Gooch's Homer Decides The decisive hit of the game however was a homer from the bat of Johnny Gooch Pirate catcher In the sixth with two men on Hack Wilson of the Cubs who leads the league in homers fanned with three on base in the third and Stephen son another of the hard-hitting Chicago outfielders missed a similar chance in the ninth Murderers' row was meek before the slants of Meadows and Grimm with two blows in three chances was the only Chicago batsman who could hit him with any consistency The Cubs made only four hits to twelve for the Pirates off Carlson Johnny Monroe And Mickey Finn (Special to The Bee) PHILADELPHIA June 20— Three tends to look over the aforen-and possibly four major league I tioned athletes the writer catjot and possibly four major league scouts will cast their eyes upon Johnny Monroe hard-hitting second baseman of the Sacramento club within the next month's time This was the information received yester day from a prominent ivory hunter of the American League According fo the scout who does not desire his name mentioned for various reasons there are at least three major league teams of which he knowF in the field for the brilliant Pacific Coast League star It Is practically a certainty that repre sentatives of the Chicago White Sox St Louis Browns and the Phillies will give the-Sacramento Infield the once-over before many more days pass Scouts Are Coming Charley Stis of the Wrhite Sox Ray Cahill of the Browns and either Joe Sugden or Danny Murphy of the Phillies in all likelihood will trek west mainly for the purpose of se curing a line on the highly-touted second sacker who once wore the regalia of several major league teams ''Mickey" Fiun Considered It is also believed Bob Tarleton of tho Pittsburgh Pirates is on the trail of Monroe as well as Finn the second baseman of the Mission club Whether or not the Buccaneers' ivory hunter has seen or in- vniirh for Mnnroo was recommended to Stuffy Mclnnis for Fall purchase by one of the Quakers' scouts several weeks ago but the Phillies manager wants to get a better line on him and therefore is expected to send either Sugden or Murphy out to the coast The Browns and WThite Sox could also use a man of Monroe's caliber if he is what he is cracked up to be Secondxnckcrs Needed St Louis has been experimenting with Young Melillo and several rookies but the second base problem is far from solved while Chicago is after an experienced man to help out Aron Ward the former Yankee Pittsburgh likewise would welcome a player of Monroe's type George Grantham is playing second for the pirates at present and doing a mighty fine job of his assignment but he will no doubt be moved over to first base when Joe Harris the veteran shows the slightest sign's of slipping The Missions are reported to be very anxious to engineer a deal with the Pirate whereby Finn will become a member of the National League team in exchange for one of the Pirate rookies and a good sizezd bundle of cash However if Monroe looked batter in the eyes of the Pittsburgh scouts the Sacramento infielder undoubtedly would be given the preference O'MRIEV VS CANS LOS ANGELES June 21— m— Tommy O'Brien New Y'ork arid Los Angeles lightweight meets Baby Joe Gans San Diego negro flash in a
