Vernon haa opened negotiations with

former I'ortland pitcher, according tc
advices from Southern California. Joe

Of biz Leadlac Ilase-Roaner. White
Sec Roasted of Tna Cobb First
la Das la and Dralalneaa.
American League teams had a far
superior attack to those In the Na
tional last season. They had 13 men
In tbe .3u0 class in batting, while the
National had only five. In addition to
that there were six base-runners who
far surpassed the records ot Carey and
Hi-nog in negotiating the paths.
The best six base-runners in tbe
American League were distributed
among five teams, the White Sox hav
ing two men on tho list. They were
led. of course, by Cobb, the best ot
them all In dash and intelligence.
Their records in 1915 were as follows:
Cobb. Itctrott. 96; Maisel. New York.
51: K. Collins. Chicago. 46; Shotten, St
l.oul.i. 43: Milan, Washington. 40; J.
Collins. Chicago. 38. This record shows
that base-running as an art is not
deteriorating In the modern game, but
simply that the American League has
the pick of the runners at present.
. The world's record for base stealing
Is held by Harry fcUovey. who played
with the rhll.tdelpliia Athletics in the
old American Association in 1888. In
that year he stole 1S6 bases, a feat
which would be impossible In these
da with the improved pitching and
catching which marks the more mod
Every club in the National League
hns had a champion base runner with
the exception of Boston and St. Louis.
No player from either of these teams
has ever led the league. The follow
