SAN FRANCISCO. Cel.. Feb.
Speculation continue to be the princi

line of sports s to what will be the
outcome during; th coming year. Col
leges, school and clubs of the West are
practically agreed that all branches of
sport should b continued on a broad
a acal aa possible during the progress
of the war.
At the moment it would sppear that
so. far as Intercollegiate rowing is con

NEW TORK, Feb. 1J. One

above the draft age who possess
tbe ability to promote and organ

men are needed Immediately for

Statea and France, It waa an
nounced today by the I. il. C A.
A meeting of prominent college
men waa held at th University

made to assist the Y. SI. C. A. in
obtaining th. Instructor. Every

will b represented on th com
mittee. It was said.
varsity competition will be robbed of
much Interest. On tbe other hand.
rowing club doubtless will continue to
hold their varlou regatta.
Baarball "aa tauaL"
Baseball trill be continued as nearly
aa possible along pre-war line, al
though It la bellevad by many that the
quality of gamea offered may suffer
because of tb absanc of many star
hrough volunteering and th draft.
Officials, both of th Pacific Coast
League and the newly framed Pacific
Coast International Leagu. formerly
the Northwestern League, appear opti
mistic In tht respect, however.
Practically all of th California ten
nis stars, who are Nationally known.
already are enrolled In the service of
he country. This, It Is contended, will
afford an unusual opportunity for the
youngster to lore Into th limelight
and beoom known.
Golf, with lta larger proportion of
men above the draft age, seems to be
leas affected by th war than most of
th other branches ef sport.
That yachting will continue to hold
th Interest of its devotees Is best at
tested by th fact that reports from
varloua. parte of th country Indicate
that many new craft. both sail and
motor, ar being, or will bs built for
tb coming eaaon.' Tbta, notwithstand

There appears to b no question as
to th future of trap-shooting. . With
