With no untoward circumstances Intervening to mar the future of this lew cotton belt of the Southwest, there Is no apparent reason why the soil and climate should not combine to yield as staple an article. as that produced by the Southern states. With the completion of the Yuma & San Diego railroad, now building, insur ing quick transportation to tidewater, and with the opening to commerce of the Panama canal in 1915, what a vista is presented of golden oppor tunities for traffic expansion!

8 BASEBALL GAMES IN VALLEY TOWNS Imperial Trounces County Seat Team and Calexico Treats Yuma Scandalously Holtville's Amateurs Get the Oeat of Brawley in Close Contest — All Val ley Teams More x>r Less Crippled by Delayed Arrival of Professional Players. The El Centro team wan defeated by Imperial on the HI Centro grounds last Sunday by a score of 9 to 5. The home team was disorganized by the non-arrival of its regular shortstop, and several of the men were playing out of pdsition. There was some poor fielding, and costly errors were made, but on the whole the game was exciting and fairly good. El Centro was in the lead up to the seventh inning, but did not score af ter the second. An opportunity to even up the score or win the game was lost through the umpire's unfamiliarity -with the rule that protects players against the trick of a second ball on the diamond. Three El Centro men were on bases, with .men* out,' and the Imperial men were holding a pow wow at the pitcher's box, w...
