By CONNIE MACK
Manager, Philadelphia Athletics
We are starting off with the
same team that won the October
series last year. Whether the
team will play up to that stand
ard this year remains to be seen,
as there Is nothing certain in
this world. , I see no reason why
the team as a whole should not
play up to its last year's form. .
If the Athletics do. the other
clubs in the league will have to
play better than - they did last
year to overcome the margin by
which the Athletics won the pen
Just now . all . our players are
in good condition. Nothing has
occurred to make me think any
one ha gone back, so I am hope
ful of the final results.

Manager, St. Lewis Cardinal
A year ago at thi time I said
that .1 believed the Cardinals,
barring . injuries, . were ; strong
enough to win the 1S30 pennant.
This season It is my opinion that
the club Is formidable enough to
repeat its triumph.
I say this knowing that Chick
Hafey, a great outfielder. Is not
with us and from present indi

Middleweight Belt Back
In Salem, Barrackman is
To JVr estle McCann for It
FOLLOWING a statement by Wildcat McCann that Jen
sen is too heavy to have won the middleweight north
west championship belt from Barrackman at Olympia, fur
ther Investigation revealed that it was not the northwest
middleweight belt which was lost at Olympia, but a light
heavyweight belt " which Barrackman also held. Wildcat
McCann and " Barrackman will O . 1
meet Thursday night at the arm
ory wltb the middleweight belt
at stake.- -- - 1 -.
When Barrackman was here
for his "if title bout with Me
Cann be was not sure who he
would have to wrestle . at Olym
pia in defending bis belt. The
opponent happened to be Jensen,
but the belt was not lost to him
as Jensen Is In the light heavy
weight class. " The bout Thurs
day night will settle the dispute
and In , case McCann wins, . the
belt- will be 'In the hands of a
wrestler who' will not be afraid
to defend It against all comers.
.: McCann has won matches
from . many champions, but they
seem to manage to retain their
belts. - Perhaps they realize that
there wouldn't be much chance
beating; the : showy feline if he
had a belt to defend, and for
this ' reason have kept , It out of
his grasp. But there-Is a limit
to almost everything and now It
appears that the Wildcat will ac
tually get a fair and square shot
at the northwest championship
The Barrackma n-McCann
match here before was one of the
best of the year with both going
their hardest from the first
gong. After each had gained
one fall, McCann lurched back
from the ropes, falling on Bar
rackman and stunning him which
paved the way for the final fall.
When McCann met Reed here
last week, he appeared to be In
perfect . condition and It wonld
have taken plenty to beat the
Wildcat that night. Indications
are that McCann will be in Just
as good Shape for the coming
match and it would be folly in
deed If he were not. Barrack
man Is a grappler who works on
his man all the time and there
srre no breathing spells In his
Barrackman will ' have - his
wrestling bear here again tor the
preliminaries. The, bear proved
highly amusing . here last time
and his behavior was above re
proach so the Salem fans will
welcome him back again.
Harry Elliott of Eugene will
be the third man in the ring for
Thursday night's show. Elliott
refereed the matches here last
year and Is - himself a clever
grappler and is as good as any
at the game. . . Matt Matheney
has diphtheria at present but
hopes to be back in the near fu
ture to keep the local bouts mov
ing along In the right manner.
Harry Elliot will do the Job
equally well though, and is con
sidered a top notch official.
Meet itr Today,
The Salem high Interclass track
meet will be held this afternoon
on Sweetland field.
The meet was originally sched
uled to be run off last Friday,
bat adverse weather conditions
spoiled those plans. A squad ot
over 50 men wil participate in to
day's meet and some good per
formers are scheduled to come to
light In today's competition. Very
little practice has been held a
