Comiskey Says Twirlers Are
Showing Better Form.
Big Ed Walsh Is Sure of Good Season,
While icott and White Have Old
Cunning—Joe Benz Is pke
a New Man.
Prediction that the Chicago Amer
ican league baseball team will have
a strong pitching staff this year is
made by President Comiskey. He be
lieves the twirlers now being sea
soned are showing better form than
in previous years, all of which is at
tributed to the spring work at Paso
"Th°re is no need to tell the fans
how good Ed Walsh is going to be be
cause they realize that he has no
equal in baseball," was the wny Mr.
Comiskey started out in speaking of
the White Sox staff. "Ed is in per
fect physical condition and his man
ner of caring for himself during the
idle winter months always assures a
good season for the big fellow. He is
good for ten years to come. Nobody
knows how much I think of him and
how proud I am of such men as his
type. I would not be surprised to see
him make his best record the coming
‘‘Another thing which is encourag
ing to me is the way Jim Scott ha3
been going on the coast. I want to
go on record as saying that Jimmie Is
hack to his best form and he will be
a great support to the team. I expect
him to have his best year barring a
return of his ailment, of which he
now seems to be entirely free.
“Doc White is making a better
showing than he did last year at this
time. He has all his old-time cunning
and speed. He will be a great help

to the club and will be ready to take
his turn as soon as the season opens.
Benz is going great guns. He looks
like a new man. I was surprised to
see the way he worked. Cal tells me
he expects wonderful things of him.
Lange and Cicotte never were early
season pitchers, but they are just be
ginning to show their real value.
“Manager Callahan believes he has
a great find in Clarence Smith, the
youngster from Birmingham. The
young fellow will be given a thorough
trial and it looks now as if he might
be one of the regulars. Phil Douglas,
one of the tallest twirlers in the
game, standing 6 feet 4 inches, also
looks good to me. Mogridge has im
proved greatly and Cal will in all
probability carry him the full season.
His work on the coast insures him a
place in major league baseball.
Double Squeeze Play.
The double squeeze .play is Connie
Mack's latest. Playing against San
Antonio, Collins was on third and
strunk on second. Barry laid down a
bunt. Collins scored, easily, while
Barry was being thrown out, and
Strunk, having taken a tremendous
flying lead, came home all the way
from second after Collins, so great
was his burst of speed.
Ernie Johnson Wins Game.
Ernie Johnson, the Sox discard,
played his first game with Los An
geles and won a place in the hearts
of the coast fans by driving in the
winning run for the Angels in the
eleventh inning, beating the Sox out.
The final score was 3 to 2. Ernie sent
the winning count over the plate by
means of a sacrifice fly when the An
gels had runners on third and first,
with none out.
Penn Hopes to Win Championships.
The University of Pennsylvania is
hopeful of winning this year’s annual
intercollegiate track and field cham
pionships, which would put them on
even terms with Cornell for perma
nent possession of the $1,000 trophy.
The record now stands four wins for
Cornell, three for Pennsylvania and
’one for Harvard. It must be won five
Eyes on Pipp.
The major league scouts have, thus
early, their eyes upon one college
player in Pipp, the first baseman of
the University of Virginia nine. They
say he is the best first baseman play
ing baseball since Fred Tenney's days
at Brown.
Jennings Places Tigers.
The Tigers ran sixth last year, but
Manager Jennings is confident that
they will do at least two point better
thin season. He considers that fourth
place will be about the limit for his
club, but is sure that he will get that
Miller Huggins, Leader of St Louis Cardinals.
Miller James Huggins, manager of
the St. Louis Cardinals and one of
the greatest second basemen in base
ball. was born in Cincinanti, Ohio,
March 27, 1880. He started his pro
fessional career in 1901 with the St.
Paul team of the American associa
tion and played with the Saints for
three seasons. In 1904 he returned to
bis native city as a big leaguer and a
member of his home team, the Cin
cinnati Reds. For six years, or until
he was traded to St. Louis in 1910,
Huggins was the star of the Reds' in
field. He went to St. Louis in 1910,
and for the last three years has done
the same brilliant work for the Cardi
nals that made him famous in Red
land. Last winter he was appointed
manager of the team to succeed
Roger Bresnahan. Although it will
be his first season as a manager, St.
Louis fans are confident he will pro
duce a winner. When his baseball
days are over Huggins will practico

Almost Unheard of in Boston Until
Boosted by Leslie Nunamaker,
Second Backstop.
Forrest Cady, the twenty-four-year
old giant, butted into the limelight
when Leslie Nunamaker, second
catcher of the Red Sox, was Injured
in the throwing hand early last sea
son, and has been right there or there
abouts ever since. Cady was almost
unheard of in Boston, and even his
team-mates did not know much about
his ability. He and Nunamaker had
been room-mates and "pals.”
As Cady, who, despite his size, is
very soft-spoken and evasive of the
spotlight, went out to warm up, Nuna
maker, sitting with bandaged hands

on the side-lines, shouted this encour
agement to the recruit, so that every
body heard it:
“Keep up the reputation of the
[ room. Cady!"
“Well, if they give me a chance in
they'll never miss YOU,” replied
Cady, a bit peeved at the attention at
tracted to him, but still speaking as
qiietly as a bank clerk.
Nunamaker sat on the bench the
remainder of the season, appearing in
less than a half dozen games, and 13
now third catcher. Cady caught the
most of the world’s series and re
j ceived a big salary increase. Which
is Fate, also Opportunity. A similar
I tern may boost Nunamaker again. It’s
! the luck of the game.
Wagner in Fine Form.
Hans Wagner, the Pittsburgh star,
! reports in good condition this year, as
he always does. Hans is a player who
j takes good care of himself during the
| winter months and does not require a
i great deal of conditioning in the
spring. The idol of the Pirates says
I he expects to have one of the best
| years of his long career as a diamond
artist in 1913.

Australia’s Seat of Government

Plans Drawn by American Architect
Are Accepted and Site Chosen is
in Canberra, N. S. W—Will
Be City Beautifutv.
Canberra, N. S. W.—Americans will
take a keen Interest in the construc
tion of the federal capital city of the
pommowealth of Australia, because,
like the federal capital city of the
United States, It was completely plan
ned before the foundation stone of the
Hrst permanent building was laid, and
also because the architect whose de
signs have been accepted, Walter Bur
ley Griffin, is an American, says the
Boston Transcript. The choice of the
Canberra district of New South
Wales, as the site of the city, was
made by the commonwealth govern
ment in 1910, and the invitation to
architects embodying the conditions of
completion was issued April 30, 1911.
To give an idea of the magnitude of
the task, it may be stated that the
requirements for the consideration of
the designers included the allocation
pf appropriate areas embracing sites
not only for the house of parliament,
residence of the governor general and
the usual ministerial and administra
tive offices, but places of public wor
ship, mint, national art gallery and
Uhrary, state house, printing office,
government factories, university, tech
nical college, city hall, general post
office, museum, central railway sta
tion, railway marshaling yards, mili
tary barracks, criminal and police
courts, jail, hospital, national thea
ter, central power station, gas works,
markets, stadium, parks and gardens,
ate. It was a great work to design this
model city, and Mr. Griffin may well
be congratulated on hlB success In
winning the opportunity to give Wash
ington, D. C., a worthy sister in Can
berra, N. S. W.

Sanatorium Where the Tuberculoale
May Be Cured Is Worth Much to
Any State or City.
Dr. H. L. Barnes, superintendent of
the Rhode Island State sanatorium,
has recently demonstrated by some in
teresting studies of patients discharg
ed as “apparently cured" from that in
stitution, that a sanatorium is a sound
investment for any state or city. The
gross earnings of 170 ex-patients ob
tained in 1911 amounted to 5102,752,
and those of 211 cases in 1912 to $112,
021. By applying the same average
earning to all ex-patients of the sana
torium living in 1911 and 1912, Dr.
Barnes concludes that their income in
these two years was $551,000. This
sum is more than three times the co3t
of maintenance of the sanatorium in
cluding interest at 4 per cent, on the
original investment and depreciation
charges. Dr. Barnes concludes, how
ever, “While institutions for the cure
of tuberculosis are good investments,
there is good reason for thinking that
institutions for the isolation of far ad
vanced cases would be still better in

Keeper of Secrets of Kings.
Lord Knollys, who is retiring, after
having been private secretary to King
George and the late King Edward,
has received many tempting oflers to
write his autobiography, but. needless
to say, has steadfastly resisted them
all. An enterprising publisher, from
the United States, once ran him down
during his vacation, and placed a
blank check before him, inviting him
to fill it in for any sum he liked to
name in return for a book of no fewer
than 50,000 words.
“My terms would be five million
dollars,” Lord K»ollys remarked,
quietly. The publisher gasped. "Good
gracious, sir, are you serious?” he
“Quite,” Lord Knollys rejoined, and
then, with one of his merry twinkles
of his eyes, he said:
“Would it not be worth a good deal
more to you if I had to say frankly
all I know?”
The publisher realized the force of
the argument, and was bound to ad
mit that it would be a hopeless task
to induce an indiscretion on the part
of the veteran courtier.
