Here is the lowest average strength nf left tielrlerc in tli lac, AffkAtt r( tlie major leagues. Even with the ter - r fie i tt nor linger and hr nut t e .1. ang of Veach of Detroit, the heavy hitting of Joe .Jackson' and the slug ging prowess of Zack Wheat and of .Neale and sherry Magee, the left i fielders of the major leagues lack the ? punch that has been present in former i- years. . vvitnout Hitting ability, wnat are left fielders? In these days of. pre dominance of left handed batter of scientific direction of the attack to ward fight field, a left fielder becomes Jltss arid less important in the scheme soi things unless he can hit. When K first base was a sinecure, the sluggers iVere assigned to that job; when right U field wm the mft snnt the henvv hit. f ters were right fielders: when third bane became the easiest job, the hit- iters were put there and now that left held is the easiest of all positions one ! would expect to find the heavy hat Sters congregating there place!! there 3 where they could utilize their hitting 3 powers and do least damage to the field. - i - ' it Yet we fail to' find them there. New 8 York we discover leading the Na tional league left fielders because of i. a Burns cleverness at bat and at ex Si trading bases on balls, worrying r pitchers, etc., rather than his slugging S power. Veach, who now figures ahead of all the left fielders, earns his lead f by heavy hitting, and Joe Jackson, al though not a finished helder, hangs on Iclose to the top because4of his swat- totorial strength. Jackson has not hit As, well since he joined the White Sox t H:is he did prior to that time, yel he is lin many respects a much improved g hall player,. Bitting tor tlte team ftiatnermian tor jiip-individual- aver- irige, and fielding a lot better. Jack' ton is learning and, has learned a lot Eoi case oaii. Cleveland High.

St. gLouis probably will use Dcmmitt i-jiractically all, season in left and JJcmmijt, if he plays anywhere' near Jill last year's association form, will .Ihelp lot to make the Brown outfield more reliable. . v Of all the youngsters who are to i be given trials there is but one can didate who promises to show any thing above the average, and he be I longs to Connie Mack, from which it lis not hard to guess that he is a 1 college man. It is hard to predict tliat any college man will make good fin the majors right off the 'reel, but Jii there has been one in recent years v ho justifies this prediction it , is J Caude . Davidson, who played for f Brown ' university. WJien Davidson ! I was with Brown half a dozen clubs vere striving to get a line tied to i'liim and k was reported that he .v;ould not listen to any proposition. Then be turns p , in the Athletic kamp. He was, with the probableex f .-rptio'i of Sammy White of Prince ton, the greatest base ball player j:urncd out by any eastern college in. jtne last- half dozen years. He is fast, liits well (or, did in college) and big I'eague Ecbuts who watched him say ie looks to be a finished player. He Vs versatile and played third base well I.'aough to be rated as third baseman ht the' All Eastern college team, but ' fit is said he excels in the outfield. If the does make good his college prom- 5se the Athletics will have to be given a rhigher rating than they do in the figures. Boston loses a lot of points n left through the loss of Duf Lewis tnd the certainty that Jhere will be rfianges before the left fielder finally s selected. - t . National Improves.

Zack Wheat still holds well in rank, although not the'batl player he was. He had a good year with the war club last season and that covered some of the increasing fielding weaknesses. Two Good-Reds. ' Mathewson has Neale and Sherry Magee a strong pair, for use in left. Indeed Matty has a wealth of outfield material and he- might even yet he tempted to make a trade, to brace his lrt)rt pitching staff, especially if he loses pitchers in the draft.

This fact is not liable to hurt Wljitted's playing in the slightest, as he is a man who works harder for the team than for himself. Pittsburgh is well fortified in having Stengel, Jackson and Bigbce, but no matter how we strike an average of the three it does not make the team look strong. The Cubs are weakest and left field is liable to remain, a weak spot, although Mann can do fairly well out there and Flack can "field and throw. '. vThe lineup is -not' formidable, but its defensive 'strtngth is above aver age. We wjjl find in the next study that the center fielders contribute much more to the offensive 'strength than do their brothers in left. (Copyright, 1911 by the Bell Syndicate, tuc.) Col.

Townley's Deal'" With Anar chists Rejected by Farmers of North Dakota Last , Summer. Wahoo, Neb. April 5- To' the Edtior of The Bee: Those who have been fighting the Nonpartisan league in North Dakota claim that its leaders have tried to affiliate the Industrial Workers of the World with the league. I have never heard of any of the league denying that statement. There seems to bey a good deal of evidence with which Townley and his associates could be convicted of being a good deal more closely associated with the Idustrial Workers of the World than the farm ers of Nebraska care to be. I want to give your readers a ,few facts on that point. Arthur LeSeuer has been, from the beginning, "and is now, one of the attorneys for the league and perhaps the chief counselloj of Townley him self. In fact it is said that he is now manager of publicity for the league. LeSeuer was - active with the In dustrial Workers of the World in the, riots at Minot, N. D., a few years ago. LeSeuers's Deal With I. W. W. I have in may possession a phamph let printed which states' that at a meeting of the Industrial Workers of the World last summer a' motion was made and carried as follows: "That we give thefloor to Arthur LeSeuer to explain what grounds are on which we can meet and come to an understanding ,with the Non partisan league in regard to work ing conditions in the harvest fields of North Dakota. Carried." Arthur LeSeuer made the follow ing statement: "That farmers of North Dakota would be willing to pay a wage of $5" for a 10-hour day. Also that if we can c6ie to some understanding with the Nonpartisan league of North Dakota, it will mean the balance of power will be shifted from the state government to the In dustrial Workers of the Vorld and the Nonpartisan league." On June 2 the daily paper, owned by the Nonpartisan league of Fargo, N, D., announced that a committee had been appointed from the Nonpar tisan league to meet a committee from the Industrial Workers of -the World for the purpose of carrying out the LeSeuer proposition. Repudiated by Farmers. It is only fair to the North Da kota farmers to say that they re pudiated the proposition which Town ley had tried to make, and there was such severe criticism of it that Town leylwas obliged to repudiate it him self. 4 A little more evidence along this line might be interesting. In 'Solidarity,' the official organ of the Industrial Workers of the World, published in Chicago, June 21, 1917, the following matter appeared: The tentative agreement between the Nonpartisan league and the Ap ricultural Workers Industrial union, No. 400. was drafted ly joint com rryttees selected to represent both organizations. It is 'expected that this agreement will cover, the harvest season. That it will establish for the time in the harvest fields a uniform scale." Do the farmers of Nebraska want union with the Industrial Workers of the World? ,v Unless these socialists and tormer associates of the. Industrial Workers of the World can give us some farm ers' organization which is better than we have now let vs pass it up and go ort working out our problems as we have for years gone by, during which the state has grown from a territory, domniated by railroads and breweries W a commonwealth with ' the most progressive laws of any state in the union.

Plans for the invasion and sub jugation of the United States are now on file in the office of the German general staff. This we know deSnitely.

No man who values his freedom and loves the principles upon which our government was established can af ford to not contribute the limit to the third Liberty loan." Secretary Lansing of the State de partment: "The United States hai been at war for a year. The firs', enthusiasm, which followed the dec. laration that we would take up arm; in the cause of liberty and justice hat passed, but in its place, there has corn to the nation a spirit of determination and self-sacrifice.- Under the influ ence of this spirit the republic is pressing forward to the accomplish ment of the mighty task which this war has imposed upon it.
