The Game Will Improve When a Fighter Develops Who Knows He Can't Come Back CALL'S DOUBLE PAGE OF SPORTS CLOSE RACE IS PREDICTED IN 1914 All Clubs, With the Exception of Portland, Will Be Much St. onger JOE MURPHY It M generally contended that the teams of the Pacific Coast league, with the exception of Portland, will be stronger next season than they were during the year of 1913. If this con tention proves true, then the race for the pennant should prove highly ex citing. The clubs representing San Fran cisco. Venice and Los Angeles have secured new material, which promises to bolster up the weak spots. The Seals look better than they did last year. We will have to wait, however, and learn the identity of the two players Manager Del Howard expects to sign before shouting the cause of the Seals too loudly. It seems almost a foregone conclu sion that Hap Hogan's club will be at least 20 per cent stronger than it •was last year. The addition of Bill Leard is sure to prove a benefit. Se...

Maybe It Would Be Wise to Elect Baseball Managers By Popular Vote of the Fans NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS FOUR ROUND GO WITH WOLGAST SERVES AS BOOST FOR RITCHE This is the twelfth of a series of stories of the life and battles of Lightweight Champion Willie Ritchie, written ex clusively for The Call. WILLIE RITCHIE I was a very busy young man during my first visit east. In fact, they kept me on the job all the time, and I had seven fights in seven weeks, which I considered pretty good for a boy away from home for the first time and just taking a chance. At last the old homesick feeling began to creep over me. I •wanted to get back among my folks and my friends. \ I felt worse ! with every letter that I received, and at last I decided to pack my , things and return to San Francisco, although I passed up at least i four or five matches. But this did not bother me at all. For the first time in my life I really felt independent, for I had | $3,500 in the bank, and I figured that 1 w...

The damage is estimated by Superintendent James Halloran at approximately $200,009. The firemen worked all night 'in the face of great clanger, their chief efforts being devoted to trying to prevent the flames from spreading to c 46.000 gallon tank of benzine.
