Louisville secured Howard in 1910. but'
after two seasons with the Kentucky
club he wa eold to St. Paul.
.San Francisco secured him In 1913
and he succeeded Danny Long as man
ager of the Seals. Howard remained
with the Seals for two seasons and
after having built up a splendid aggre
gation of players was replaced as man
ager by Harry Yolverton, who was
manager of the Sacramento teams In
1913 and 1914. With Wolverton at
the helm, San Francisco won the pen
nant in 1915.
Howard was not connected with any
club in 1915, but toward the close of
the 1916 season he was offered the
managership of the Oakland team,
which he accepted and this season he
expects to have a team that will be
in the race for the pennant.
As a batsman, Howard's record Is
very good. He started in at a .300
clip after playing semi-pro baseball
and then dropped below the .100 mark

the league with the mark of ,358 and

Washington State championships.
fSeattle, Wash., August 6 to August
Indications are that this year will
be a Abanner one in. tennis. The or
ganization of the northwest district
by the United States National Tennis
association has greatly increased the
Interest in this sport and'rrecord
breaking entry, lists are looked for in
each championship event,
, Juniors to Oct Chance.
, In connection with the various tour
neys, Goss is trying to arrange for
the. , playing of Junior championship
events, tne, "winners to meet in a
aeries of matches for the northwest
title.. It ler likely that the Junior
events this year will be deeided dur
ing the Washington state champion
ships at Seattle. .
Letters have ; been forwarded the
-varibus tehnia clubs In this district
advlsiOg them, of the plans adopted
and It is believed that they will meet
Goss - la also communicating with
the clubs on the subject of the north
west doubles championships, the win
ners of which .will likely be entered
in the national doubles championship
tournament to be atatred at Long

summer.. Owing to tha fact that this
Is the ' first time that the northwest
has had an opporunlty to be repre
sented in the national doubles, more
than tne usual . Interest Is being taken
by the J3 layers of the various clubs.
To Coach Totmg-sters.
Goss himself win take charge of
the-Juhior tournament here, and there
is some likelihood or this event being
staged prior to the state tournament
on account .of the limited number of
courts at the Multnomah Amateur
In view of creating interest among-
tha Junior players, Goss Is making
arrangements to devote a little time
each week to four or five boya from
each high, school district. This should
prove very beneficial to the young
sters and It Is likely that other local
veteran players will lend a hand in
this movement. ,
The usual number of California
cracks are expected to visit the north
west again this season. In view of
the fact that tha Portland. Tacoma
and Seattle tournament follow In or
der. It is expected that all theCali
forniahs who come north will play
through each tournament.

young fellow, also in white, was
leaning against one of ths massivs
pillars. Desiring to save steps, ths
scribe touched ths person standing
on the shoulder, with "Hers boy.
check this coat for me."
The young man turned around,
smiled pleasantly, and replied:
"I'd like to accommodate you, but
I don't work here."
On the; collar of his coat was a
gold U. 6. and on the shoulders a
single gold bar, denoting his rank;
in ths service. His cap had been
concealed , under his arm.

and although ltnay take him several
seasons to regain his once enviable
position in tha ranks of baseball pilots,
he will keep n hammering away until

When Mack broke up his famous
championship machine he was none
too liberal in giving reasons for his
action. If he wanted to wreck a win

he did not feel that the baseball world
needed to knbw every detail about it.
- Strong tor Discipline.
Since that time tha busy scribes
have made discoveries, or at least they
thought so, and It Is generally agreed
that the Athletics wers broken up be
cause of two things. One was the
half-hearted way in which rmiaaei-
phia fans supported the Mackmen,
even when they were , "two-io-one
shots" against any club In either big
league. Another waa a lack of com
plete harmony in the club. And Mack
determined that managerial discipline
and routine should be upheld.
Mack has never been known to spend
a fortune for ball player. Likewise

At the recent American league meet
