HEAtAM BARGE WILL BE HERE
Rogers in ;Yesterday:s MailAll Four Clubs Have High
. There was a bread : smile much In
evidence around theVHealanl Club
yesterday afternoon, , lu fact, the
grin-was broad enough' to. reach, right
around the: boat house; with enough
lap-over to Jle the ends in a bow knot.
"There's 4 reason, and a mighty
cood one, - too, :. for the general at
nogphere of contentment and pros-
. perlty, for letters from the Coast; re
ceived yesterday, brought -the cheer
' ing news that the new ' Healanl rac-
ing barge was to be shipped ; on the
, Avllhelmina, due here September 3.
; , That AU Rogers has - finally - com
.'plcted the boat i good news to the
llealanlar, who have been looking : for
- It for the past month, and who .were
t canning to get somewhat worried at
the prospect of having to go through
V ' the regatta with the old barge. . The
new boat is said td-be the. very:, latest
w-in construction, with several improve-
"ents in "weight and design over the
, .J resent racing craft. V The Healanla
. v jll cet it into' the water as soon as
jiciibla after: landing, and the senior
crew will have the pleasure of . trying
' it cut for the first time, -. X :c; '-':-
.No name has been, selected for the
r-".' ccr.tK as yet, but it is probabie
that cmc - Hawaiian name will be

is of ccure obvious that "nature

CANNON BALL PITCHER
IS NOT HARD J.0;CATCH
v Is ;. Walter Johnson v a; hard pitcher
to catch T When one watches his ter
rific speed " and dazzling , curves he
surmises that it is one tough Job to
receive the big Swede. Charley Street
was the first - catcher to receive the
delivery of the "Idaho phenom Street
had trouble - In handling him in the
first few; ..games, but after that it
seemed : a very easy job ror street.
He'alway 8 Insisted that Johnson was
easier' tor . him to catch than any oth
er member "of the '. Washington staff,
but such a statement was never taken
seriously. When Clark JG riff 1th traded
Street to the Iew York team last' win
ter It"wa8 believed that he had made
a boot. On -past performances it did
not seem as if Washington had a catch
er who could .hold , Johnson. It was
thought his effectiveness would be
greatly decreased. . . On ' the . contrary,
Ainsmlth , Is catching Johnson better
than Street ever did, and Walter ad
mits he would prefer the youngster io
microscope or any other acope, of the
most delicate scientific instrument so
far as I am aware; something in the
innermost recesses of the nervous sys
tem. And I think' your great trainer
gets at it by hia personality, so that
I conceive him rather in the light of a
skilled empiric with an exceptional ca
pability of influencing men and stimu
lating them to do their best, rather
than as a. man who has thought out
the'neuro-muscular principles involved
in any movement and able therefore
to 'show' the aspirant to athletic prow
ess the way to do things best The
coach need- not be dissatisfied at my
labeling: him an empiric. A clever em
piric is better any day than a muddle,
headed scientist whose criteria are all
wrong."... -vA. :A.y-;A,--, -

At last the Boston team has shown
signs of breaking very slight-but
still an indication of slowing up. The
team isnot winning games with the
same facility it displayed up to the
last week or two, and other clubs with
stations much . farther down in the
standing are coming from behind and
beating the Red Sox after they have
accumulated a lead. This means that
the pitchers are not as strong as they
Let Stahl lose his pitchers and he
will have a great fight on his hands.
