SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 23. (Spe

American League, who is responsible
for the iron-clad edict against the
emery ball" in his organization, had
a talk today with President A. T. Baum.
of the Coast League, on the subject of

President Johnson does not hesitate
to label the "emery ball" as dangerous
to the National pastime.
"If the -emery ball would De per
mitted, it would nave me eneci m
killing baseball," says the noted base
ball authority. "It is almost impos
sible to hit the ball with the "emery
ball' belngused, and without hitting,
baseball would not be possible."
The C-ast League head said he un
doubtedly would take some action
concerning the prohibition of the
emery ball" before the season opens.
but has not determined what penalties
would be imposed.
Johnson makes it pretty strong In
the American League. A pitcher
guilty of using the "emery ball" is
subject to a J100 fine and 30 days- sus
pension and all games won are thrown
out while the defeats stand. That
makes the managers see to it pretty
well that the ball is not used.
BISALLLOX MAKES RECORD RUN
Sensational Portland Billiard Play
er Defeats Hogue at Spokane.
SPOKANE. Wash.. Feb. 23. (Spe

globules obeyed the summons of Mac
Blsalllon. the sensational young Port
land billiard player. In Bisaillon's final
match of the second annual Northwest
open championship tournament last
night with Ray Hogue, of Seattle.
The score was 2-0 to 69. Blsalllon
setting a new record high run. 72, and
a new record high average, 17, 12, 14.
It got so that every miss, no matter
how difficult the shot might have been,
brought a deep groan, and even an or
dinary shot brought applause.
Hogue won the " lag," made xne Du
llard from the opening shot and then
missed. Bisalllon ran 26, then 7, and
then came through with the best nign
run in the two years' record of the
tourney. 72, breaking the former rec
ord of 61.
Hoirue averaged five, making t in
his 14 innings, with a high run of 14.

and wrestling, the attention of the stu
dent, baseball appears on the Oregon
Agricultural College horizon. The
selection of Nick Williams as coach
and the announcement that ne win
appear on the campus and issue a for
mal call for practice on March 1 has
precipitated discussion as to the
chances for a winning team this year.
The securing of Nick Williams as
coach is pleasing fans and players
A good nucleus of players is at hand
to start the season. Captain Goble at
first, Weller and Supple, catchers;
Seiberts, second base; Morgan and
Smith, shortstops; Fryer, third base;
Loof, outfielder, and Culver and Will
lams,, pitchers, will report for practice.
Moreland, pitcher, and Sinclair- and
Robbins, are the absentees, and their
i nriit v,A uArtnuy Ttnhhins led the
IUOS " 14' -
batting list last year and Sinclair was
one of the cleverest baserunners ever
wearing an Aggie suit. Moreland was
Clark's regular righthander last year,
after Culver's bad arm put him out of
the running. It is doubtful if Culver
will be of service this year.
"Blcky" Williams is the only veteran
on the twirling staff. Williams is- a
southpaw, and should have a better
...on thlo vonr than last. There- is
a possibility that Nick Williams will
try seiberts out ai ne pucnins same.
Seeley and Wilson, men with aspira-
: n . rtTr-o rH Vrvpr'n nlnnft nt the third

on the team. Botn are clever iieiaers,

a disagreement today In the lobby of
a hotel here. As a result Willard de
clared that he would not continue his

at Juarez for the boxing bout, which

.TiK-ir Curlev nromoter of the fight
had announced that the battle would
not take place for at least a week

The whereabouts of Jack Johnson
was not divulged today by the pro

appearance at Havana yesterday he had
sailed for some Mexican port.
It has been suggested that Johnson
may attempt to enter Mexico through
Manzanillo. a West coast port, which
