of course, it seems like a curtailment

By Ftl!NK tl. MK1KE,

of new blood 'Into the mogul arteries of

1 a marvelous Improvement l)i base ball.
Thoso uw supported the psstlme long
ago grew tired of tha old regime. .They
soured experlnlly on the old National
league regime, which staged some dis
gusting drinking bouts alth esch of Its
meetings. It wearied of the loud-mouthed
and blatant owners formerly connected
With the league. It wanted, to see cleajv
rut business men handling base all not
wine and whisky connolmeurs, not men
who rau outtalk a prlxe fight manager.
The hopes of fandom are being realised.
There are many new faces among the
owners of the National and American
league clubs and they are faces good to
look upon. The newcomers are sports
men-leaiv honest, suuare. There re
main in baas ball several men who are
termed In some circles as "undesirables,"
who soon must movo out. They must
glva way to men who can uplift the game
can give It ulgntly In Its attentive hand
ling. The National league Is to be congrata
lated because it has added to its rank of
magnates thla year such clttsena as Percy
naughton. owner of the Braves, and
Charles Weeghman, a ho controla the
Cuba. They are the kind of men who add
dignity and power to any organisation.

JUrry Hempstead, boss of the aiant,

magnate, comes heralded aa a man who
can win, or lose, gracefully. Phil Ball,
who acquired the Browns as a result of
the Federal league merger, la of the same

Two former Rourkes, according to the

are Freddie Thomas, who pastlmed at

iuK-er exiraoramary!" That a tit title
which la being pinned on the little chap
Who Is striving to hold down the lob
of regular third baseman for Lee Fori r a
team. And the title Is not amiss, either."
That Is the way a dispatch from New
Orleana to a Cleveland paper reads.
The Cleveland experts declare Freddie
Is going to win the job. because he can
field, throw, hit and run bases. Freddie
could do all of thes things when he was
a member of the Rourkee and he did 'em
last year In New Orleana The Cleve
landers even say Thomas Is a better
third sacker than Ivan Howard, who was
a regular on the 8t. Louis Browns last
year, and also say he Is head and should

Comiskey and Rowland Will Lead

TRAINING TRIP SHORT THIS YEAR
CHICAGO. March It. Twenty-eight
member of the Chicago White Pox will
report to . tanager Clarence Rowland a
Mineral Wells, Tex., for spring training
The greater part of these will leave Chi
cago Sunday on a special train and ar
rive ' In the Lone Star state March 14.
President Comlakey, a large number of
friends and followers of the local Amer
ican league club also will be in the party,
The training trip Is much shorter this
year than heretofore, and Manager Row
land expects It to have better results.
Previously the club used to train on the
Pacific coast and would be on the road
almost' two month before th season
Thirteen of the squad are pitchers, four
or five of whom probably will be sold or
traded before the season gets tinder wsy.
The veterans on the twirling staff are
Urban Faber, Jo Bens. Eddl Clcottei
Reb Russell. Jim BcoU. Melvin Wolfgang
and Ed Walsh, Th rookies ar: Mal
colm Galvln, the University of Wisconsin
star pitcher; Claude William. . Charles
Stellers, Dave Danforth, Jack Eller and
Frank Davis. ' ; - - . '
Reports that "Big Ed" t Walsh would
be dropped were denied . shortly before
Rowland's departure. Rowland aaid that
Walsh waa a member of th Whit Sox
pitching staff and would be a big- help
to the club In helping th pHchers' condition-
themselves. 'He also said 'that
Walah might be able to take his turn on
the mound, as he reported from his homj
at Meriden, Conn., that his arm felt In
Veterae Mast llaatle. j
However, the task before Rowland . is
to weed out five of this big squad. It la
likely that three- of-the rookies are not
yet ready lor major league company and
they may be farmed out for further sea
soning. Two of the veteran undoubtedly
will have to fight hard for their place
on the list, a Danforth and WUllam
ar touted a being cpabl"of holding
a place on the White Sox staff.
Xl&y Sehft'k probably will carry most
of the catching burdens; but he will have
an able asalttant in Jack Lapp.
Several recruits will battle at the train
ing camp for a place on the infield. The
keyntone sack, wh-ch v. Ill la guarded by
Eddie Collins, Is the only position which
will iint.be fought for bv the other ln-
fieldrrs on the club.x
Weaver, the sensational shortstop, mav
be ahtfled to the third corner, and trv
bis hand at that station, and allow Mc-
Mullln and Terry, two recruits from tlie
Los Angeles club, to battle for the short-
atop pobillnn. Both come to the Sox highly
recommended, and one undoubtedly will
make good. Weaver also will hav George
Mortarlty. the former Detroit third
sacker. battling him for th third pillow
post. If th two wcetern recruit fail
to make good Weaver will move, back to
short and Merlarity will be given the
third base job.
The first base problem also may be def
initely settled before the season starts.
The Pox have a great Aiding recruit In
Jack Ness, who established a record on
the coast for hitting, consecutively, while
playing In the Pacific Coaat league last
season. Manager Rowland said he ex
pected to see Ness make good from th
tart. However, If he should fall, John
Collins or Jack Founder may be given
the berth at the Initial sack.
' The outfield will be well taken care of
thla seaaon by practically the same play
ers who romped about the outer garden
last seaacn. They are Eddie Murphy,
"Happy" Felsch. "Nemo" Lelbold. Four
nler,.John Colvs and Joe Jackson. Sev
eral aspiring youngsters also will be given
an opportunity to display their skill dur
ing the training trip.
After a short stay at Mineral Well the
club will be divided Into two squads and
play exhibition games at the various
cities on their way toward home. These
exhibition will continue up to the day
before the regular American league cham
pionship era son starts. The first squad,
regulars, who face Detroit in the opening
game her on April U, will play two
gamea with the Minneapolis club of the
American Association in tb northern
metropolis, April 10 and 11.
