Princeton and other; schools long ago
adopted the professional plan. '
Jones, who la heavily interested in
Oregon timber lands, was forced to de
cline the proposition on account of his
business; Harvard has . several other
baseball stars in View for the positfpn,

There Is mWe of a desire' on the part
of college teams to procure well known,
professionals to coach tltnlr teams. Yale
for several years , has had' Billy Lush
teaching baseball. -This-year consider

announcement that Johnny Evers of the
Chicago Cubs was to coach the navy
cadets. Evers, through pressure from
President , Murphy of ; the Cubs, was
forced to cancel his contract Orval
Overall has also been offered a job with
a New England college.' v
Jones says It would be a lovely posi
tion and Considerable "soft" money, but
he feels that he will not be able to ac
cept it at this time.
"In my bush leagtfe days.' says Larry
McLean, the old Portland catcher,' T
spent a brier season with a club whose
manager meant well, but was handi
capped by lack of the coin., He was an
earnest little man, and with proper sur
roundings, would have been . quite :k
leader, but the public failed toput up
the currency either at homeor von the
road. r-: ----?.:?"tj-'',
"This manager had his own roetlOi of
paying qff the -men.. Whenever there
was any money at hand, he would take
up an alphabetical list of the boys and
start down the lino, paying as far as the
money lasted.- Under this system," An
derson, Blake, Brennan and Casey did
quite well but It was always doubtful
about McLean, ; while our , shortstop,
whose name was Zander, didnt have a
payday 411 avmiper. ' v , f. ;" VT.-'V
-In- the following sprtsg, this ener
