TA SIGKS TWO HEW ATHLETES
An even docen of Pa Rourke'g athlete
have lamped the writing on the wall and
sent In their signatures affixed to 1918
contracts. Thought of a hard year and
the disagreeable dreams of an empty com
mlssary about June 1 will prompt the most
delinquent of athlete to" action and
Itourk expects tha remainder of his crew
to flock Into tha fold before the passing
of many more day
Thou players who have signed are:
Krueger and Kafora, catchers; Crabb,
.Willis, Biodgett, Everdon and Btevens,
pitchers; Krug, Whalen, Tlloskt and
Payjie, tnflelders. and Aten, outfielder.
Rourke completed tha deal for Biodgett,
the big Waterloo hiirlr, end had no
sooner fixed thlnss up with Doo Andrews
than Biodgett hustled to sign up. Biodgett
will get a neat advance over his Water
loo salary. Another new athlete haa been
acquired by Rourke. Ills name Is Aten
andlh is an outfielder. Chick Fraser saw
Aten play -semi-pro ball at Hutchinson,
Kan. Chick Is scout for tha Pirates, but
thought Aten's Inexperience would make
it Impossible for Mm to play In the Wsj
leagues bo ha gave Pa a tip to grab the
, youth. : Fraiier says he Is a comer and
a year In the Western will make htm
eligible for the big show. So Pa sent the
youngster a contract and the youngster
signed up. That makes two Kansas semi
pros Fa has signed. The other is Short
stop Tlloskl, the second Maranville.
' Wmta aa Outfielder.
Rourke also has a deal on for another
outfielder. Pa needs an outfielder and
needs one bad. He has decided Manager
Marty Krug will make a good third base
man so the outfield must be made up of
Thomason, Bell, Payne, Aten and Wal
lace. The latter trio may fall to deliver
and there Is a chance that Bell will not
be quite fast enough. So Pa haa decided
lie will get a man of known ability to be
on the safe side..
' 'The acquisition of Bchliebner completes
the infield. With Frits on first. Breen on
second. Whalen at short and Krug at
third, the inner works' la well protected.
-The catching department iaall to the
mustard with Kafora, 'Krueger and-Sea-caugb
Oris more pitcher will be added to the
quad and Rourke has entered Into nego
tiations for a hurler from the BU Louis
Cardinals. Bt. Louis has a pitcher or two
to send back and Pa has first pick. The
twlrler wiil be a good one, says Pa. Those
now on the staff are: Crabb, Noyea,
Willis, Biodgett, Styles, Closman. Ever

men and will play ln various cities en
route to the exponltien.
Ths date of their departure from New

they are already laying out an itinerary,
and Omaha has been placed on the list. '
Tha bowk-rs who will make the trip
