The next step was the taking over

At the time that several players of the
Chicago White Sox were mixed up In the

history, many suggestions were mad to
the owners of the club that they change
the nam of their organisation. Th ap
pellation of "Black Box" assigned to the
men Involved, it was feared, would cling
to the other player ae well.
But Comlakey was not Inclined to
change. He held that a bank would not
change It nam If a teller or cashier
was unworthy of Its trust. That be was
correct seems demonstrated. The Whit
Sox remained the White Sox.
An old man puts forward th sugges
tion that had Cpmlskey changed th
name, the new nam now would be a
constant reminder of the disagreeable In
cident. In future " years-, writers would
recall that they used to be called th
White Sox, and then would relate why the

There, seems to be no reason why
baseball the country over should not
experience as profitable a season as it
did in 1921. There is the one con

would rob the schedule of interest.

there should be an improvement.
Portland was particularly weak. This
always is a tin .can to a tall, no mat

series In which the weak team is
playing is practically a dead issue

particular week. But the aggregate
of say, 28 weeks, mounts up to a
The transfer of McCredie, ex-manager
of the Portland team, as man

change that will be watched with In

not know the time when McOredie
was not manager -of the Portland
club. There is no shrewder manager
on the coast and in his new field
there appears to be no reason why
he, should not revert to the glory of
his old days, when his club, instead
of being a pitiful tallender, was win

Another golf season is about to
break forth, and as yet practically
nothing has been done to provide for
the steadily increasing number of
golfers who depend on the 'municipal
links for their daily round. Another
couple of months and the players
will be swarming to the links.
Those fortunate enough to belong
to a private club are not worrying
but the outlook for the municipal
golfer is pretty slim. Of course, there
Is the Eastmoreiand links, but un
less the city of Portland comes to
some sort of an agreement with the
Ladd estate, which owns the East
moreiand tract, the golfers are liable
to be denied the privilege of playing
on this course.
The five-year agreement, by which
150 acres in Eastmoreiand were made
available for public use as a golf
course, free of rent, by the Ladd es
tate, has expired. The city now has
no claim to the Eastmoreiand course
and the Ladd estate is at liberty to
turn the cows in to graze on the
greens and fairways if It so desires.
There is not, much likelihood that
this will be done, but the city can
not expect to retain the golf course
unless it eViters into some agreement
with the Ladd estate.
. The cltv has two possible alterna
tives.- One Is to renew the old leas
for another five years, If this can oe
done. The other is for the city to buy
the 150 acres that comprise the first
and second nines of the municipal
course. The Ladd estate has ex
pressed willingness to dispose of the
property to the city for its assessed

municipal golf committee, composed
of C. P. Keyser, superintendent of

reached whereby the' Eastmoreiand
tract can be retained as a municipal
Last year when it . first became
known that the city was planning on
building a course on the site of the
old county poor farm on Canyon road
it was supposed that this new course
would save the day for the municipal
golfer, but to date not a shovelful of
dirt has been turned on the property
toward building a new course. There
is some hope but not much that this
course will be ready about the mid
dle of next summer.
Committees have been appointed by
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic
club. Portland Golf club, Portland
Heights club and other organizations
to devise means of raising funds to
build the course. These committees
will meet at noon February 1 In the
green room of the Chamber of Com
merce. Then there is the proposed course
on the site of the old Rose City speedway.-
Here is anqther case where
funds are being raised by subscrip
tion. The financial committee for
the Rose City course has a good
start.. As the course there will be
only a nine-hole affair, perhaps it
can be made ready by spring.
At the annual meeting and election
of directors at the Wavcrley Country
club last night the following directors
were eleoted: A. C. U. Berry, W. M.
Cook, Prescott Cook Ingham, C. H.
Davis Jr., A. C. Hindman, C. E. Nel
son, Horace Mecklem, H. P. Thomp
son and George Maxwell. The elec
tion was merely a formality, as only
nine names were placed on the ticket
by the nomination committee.
The team match scheduled between
two picked teams at Waverley yes
terday was called off as the course
was in poor condition for play due to
the recent snow.

we will have a team in that meet,"
said Hayward yesterday.
If Oregon does this, it will be for

assistant coach, although Bill Hay

Track prospects are not especially
bright, -especially since it became
known that Arthur Tuck would not
return to school and Glenn Walkley,
who suffered a broken toe while
working for cross-country this fall,
could not participate. Tuck broke

and showed up well ' in the discus.

build-around, but there Is some good
new material lor the varsity, de

year. Ralph Spearrow, best of the
first-year men, l addition to clean
