MATTY TAKES CHARGE
Will Pitch If Team Needs It,
. Otherwise Will Be Bench
Cincinnati, Ohio, July 21. Christy
Mathewson, new manager of the Beds,
way or muy uul pitch for his team. It
ell depends upon how he feels and what
bis other pitchers do.
"That's the way Matty sized it up on
liis arrival here today,
"I haven't fully determined whether
or not I will pitch for the Beds," lie
isaid. "I first must see what the other
pitchers are capable of doing. If I
think my work would add strength to
the pitching staff, I will pitch occasion
ally. Otherwise I will bo a bench man
ager." . .
Mathewsou is troubled with a lame
aide and it is likely that if lie does
pitch, he will not do so soon. However,
the Beds at present, including Matty,
have only six pitchers and have six
straight double headers to play on their
eastern trip, which starts Tuesday.
Matty, Outfielder Rousch and Infield
er Bill McKechnio, all of whom arrived
together, probably will sign Cincinnati
contracts by noon and Matty will take
charge of the team in today's game
with the I'liiilica.
Asked if he didu't think it unlucky
to tackle his new job on Friday, .Matty

A somewhat exceptional showing in
the way of preparedness is shown by
the teachers of Sherman county in the
report of Countv Superintendent Fa
gnn, just filed with State Superintend
ent Churchill. The icport show that.
u per cent of the teachers employed
in that county are graduates of nor
nial schools, colleges or universities.
Some of the remaining 24 per cent
have had college work but have not
yet been graduated. Superintendent
Churchill attributes this condition
principally to the close co-operation
existing between the district school
boards and the couuty superintendent.
Although the former tmploy the teach
ers, most of the directors depend upon
tho county superintendent to assist
them in finding suitati-.e teachers. The
salaries offered are attractive, the av
eratre in the one room county school
being $70 a month, and Superintend
ent iagan nas little difficulty in find
ing well trained teachers. That the
school directors of Sherman county be
lieve in having long terms of school is
indicated by the fact that they have
practically eliminated the school terms
of six and seven moi.ths. Only two
districts in the county bad less than
eight months of school last year, one
having six and the other seven months
while the remaining district bad
terms of nine months.
Articles of incorporation have been
filed Gn the corporation department
by the Central Oregm Co-operative

Democrats Need But 25 Per
Cent of Progressive Vote
to Win .
New York, July 21, While republi
can leaders threshed out their campaign
plans today in conferences, Democratic
Campaign Manager McCormick issued
his first set of figures.
It was a carefully compiled record of
progressive votes cast four years ago,
and an estimate which it was said was
based on conservative information
showing that Wilson would be able to
win re-election if he only succeeded in
drawing 25 per cent of the progressive
strength. The democrats claim he will
be able to command a much larger per
centage than this but 25 per cent will
be enough to elect, according to Mc
Cormick, ' "Wilson's vote will nrohnhlv he lnrir.
