Broadway is alive with baseball
talk this year, and the men who bav.
followed the game for years state that
Gotham will have a world's aeries con
test this fall. This may be so. They
have three chances to win, and as it
looks this year all of the chances ap
pear to be real dyed in the wool
topes. ' :,y ;
Karly in the year it was decided by
the critics around Manhattan island
that the (Hants and Superbas would
be in the running, but the Yank bug
was not started until Frank Baker
had . affixed his signature to a Ne
YdrE contract Now tthe tans who
aay that " "Smiling Bill Donovan and
his Highlanders will be right at the

other (wo New York teams. . .

, In reviewing the work of the play
er and the prospects, the weak points
are always" discussed. Right now" the
Yanks are not too strong behind the
plate, nor are they certain that they
will have a second baseman wild will
make good. Boone; who played In
Honolulu and Is known to the Ideal
fans. Is one of the" players who will
make a try Tor the second sack job,
but as things shape tip at the present
time ; Joe Gideon, who ; performed
around, the second sack last year for
the Salt lake, team, tcfll be the man to
start the season' at this station! Last
year Gideon hit for an average of 317,
and surprised the Coasters by leading
the second basemen in fielding.
Other candidates for this position
are TJaumann. Aragoft and perhaps
Lee. Itagee. Last year. Baumann hit
veil and proved a better fielder- than
Boone. Lee Magee will In alt proba
bility be stationed in the outfield and
Donovan will rely on Gideon to show
something of his play that was exhib
ited In the Coast League.'
Pipp at FlrttVv V -':;.V-
Pipp "is certain kto be the regular
first base mas, and , MuUen will be
kept as a second string man. ; In 1915
Pipp led the American 3LecgueN first

for the season, His flitting was time1

average for the season.

What healthy Nerves
Mean to You '
A. strong," Tlgorbut ' nervous ., lystem
means health, strength and abiliCy to
endure hardship and also to enjoy, the
full pleasures of life. '
The man with healthy nerves accom
plishes greater tasks "with less fatigue.
He has a clear eye, an active brain
and a sound body. He is enabled to
think, better, and work faster. He has
energy. With healthy nerves he can
overcome .the hardest competition,' be
successful and gain wealth. '
'The woman with healthy' nerves la
never listless, weak or hopeless; she
is not irritable, she never suffers from
hysteria, she has a reserved surplus
of endurance. ' Healthy nerve will
prevent the sleepless mother, although
worn with care and nursing, from a
break down" caused by her double
or treble duty. ,
All men and women who . suffer
from these forms of nervousness
known as Neurastheniawho have
"gone to pieces,- who lack energy,
who. have insomnia, ' who have suc
cumbed to nervous prostration or ner

up to Maisel's class as a fielder, but
is good on hard hit balls, and if he
can improve his work on tagging a
runner should strengthen the Yanks a
heap... . . . .
With Lee Magee, Fritz Maisel and
eitner Gflhooley or High the New
York squad of jungle carctakus
should be a strong outfit. Magee and
Malsel are certain of places in tie

Infield, while Hughey High thould
fight it out witfl the former Buffalo
star for a place. Gilhooley hit ' 3 ;
for the Bisons last year and In addi
tion led the league in stolen ' bases,
He is certain of a job this year if he
can keep up uis last year's form, as
?Xnovqn has always been sweet on
ball players who can purloin bases.
In addition Donovan will have Cock,
Hartzeii,rHendryx and two other r

Good Pitching Corps.
' If New York does not have a good
pitching staff this year it will' not
be because Messrs. Huston and Rup-
pert have not tried to annex a num
ber of stars. Here is a list that should
aoand pretty good to tfte Yankee ad-
miners: Ray Caldwell, Ray Fisher,
Ray Keating, Boh Shawkey, Cy Pieb,
Nick Cullop, Cliff Markle, Bill Plercy,
Dan Tipple, Slim Love, and Torn Blcci
gett Then there are a few othe-s
who will try to demonstrate their
worth to Manager Bill.; ; : ; , ; '
The three Rays are good 'pitchers
in any league. Caldwell, when he
keeps in condition is a real star, and
Fisher and Keating have pitched good
bail 'throughout the tenor of their
stay in Gotham. Last year Fisher; won
18 i games and lost 11 ; with 'a.) team
which did not make the first division.
Bob Shawkey did not get off well last
year but the former Athletic lrarler is
capable of good ' wbrk on the ' mound.
Cy.PIeh, the comedian, is a, reliable
heaver ' whoi wHl ' undoubtedly ; "ha
worked : more this year. ' Nick Cnllop
was one of the leading pitchers of the
Feds last " year, and ; Fielder Jones
stated that he was the leading south
paw of that organization. Last year
he won. 22, garnet and , lost but 11,
which should entitle him -to a good
tryout. :' .;. '(,...
Coasters, to Show. - "rv r ft-
Donovan has signed two' players
from the coast Bill Piercy was draft
ed and Love from Los Angeles. With
the exception of Lefty Williams, these
two players look like the pick of the
coast moundsmen. Slim Love will be
the tallest: player in the American
League if he sticks, as he towers up
about ft. 7 inches. Blodget from
Omaha and Tipple from Indianapolis
are picked to make a good showing
this season. Blodgett in the Western
League made the better showing last
Withoat a doubt the New" York
squad is weak -. behind the , bat
Acknowledging that, Alexander will
make a good catcher this year," he
will have to handle most of the games,
as " Wolters has not been tested . in
fast company. ' He played good ball
with -Waco last year, but like-other
minor league stars may not show
the goods in the big brush. Of course
Donovan -has Smith, but this player
had oae dial and failed to make good.
Nunamaker and Schwert may have a
chance to perform this season.
Altogether the Yanks figure a
strong team, and if Smiling Bill can
strengthen his backstop material and
Gideon makes good, then the boys
around 42nd and Broadway and Times
square will have an opportunity to
say, T told yon so." Bill Donovan
is a likeable manager, and perhaps
has as many friends as any other boas
in the game. The Tans throughout
the country will be pleased to feee the
Yanks a ' winner. Mr. Gotham and
Mr. Harold Z. Square. Please note.
- The next article will review the
candidates for positions on Fielder
Jones' Sloafeds and Browns.
P. S. Do not forget the fact that
"Germany" Schaefer will be on the
Yanks this year. He not only is a
mighty good drawing card as a come
dian, but is one of the headiest play
ers in the business and should give
Donovan much assistance during tho
campaign. - ".

Fred Fulton last night in a ten

ciding the fight ; ;
Tommy Burns, doubting the ability
