DRUMMOND GIRLS BEAT BOYS IN
,F'RAY, 16 TO 12.
REFE[ STOPS BATTLE
Game Is Called When it Becomes Too
Rough-Boys Lose Temper and
Start Roughing It, but Get Hair
Pulled Until Official Calls Halt.
I .rmnmnd't. March 2?.--(Special.)
Ity a scoree of 16 to 1: representatives
of the deadlier half of the species last
night showed their superiority over
mere men in the supposedly mascu
line game of baskethall. "The female
of the species is more deadly than the
mate," a wise young man once sang.
His theory was borne out last night,
for the girls quintet beat the opposi
tion to death, thanks to an instinctive
ability to pull hair.
The game was never finished. The
referee, himself a man, stepped into
the fray when he saw his fellows in
danger of their lives and stopped it.
But he didn't have the courage to
steal the victory. He announced that
the women had won.
To the credit of the winners ;t
must be said that they didn't start
hostilities. A great crowd, drawn to
the Dreamland theater by the an
nouncement that the crack high school
girls' quintet would meet a male five,
from the same institution, saw real
hasketball for a few minutes. The
girls had such an easy time of it,
though, that the boys lost their tem
pers and began to rough it in an un
chivalrous manner. To their surprise
they were given a little more than
lit for tat. The girls came hack with
a vengeance and pulled hair and
scratched faces until the reftree had
to stop the game.
Bandages are in great demand now,
and the high school boys hardly dare
to lift their heads in school.
THORPE SANS SCALPS
One of the best yarns the returning
world touring baseballera brought
home hinged on the fact that big Jim
Thorpe of the Giants, world champion
athlete, is a redskin.
Thorpe, the tourist said, was a big
disappointment to the English because
he didn't wear feathers and scalps.
"What do they call you among the
Indians--your sohriquet, I mean?" said
one monocled peer to whom Thorpe
was introduced In London.
"Bench warmer," said Thorpe. And
he never cracked a smile.

Federal League Prospects
As Seen by Grantland Rice
Speaking of the Federal league again-just by the way of variety-it is
our fairly humble belief that discussion of its success has been a trifle askew.
The success of this circuit is not pendent upon the quality of ball.en
tirely. The quality of ball is not even a predominant feature, although an im
portant one,' of course. And we have our reasons for this belief.
THE MAIN INGREDIENTS.
The success of the Feds in the.main will depend upon three features-and
by success we mean their drawing power at the gate.
These three main ingredients will be the accommodations offered fans, .an
even balance in the comparative strength of the contending clubs and Mr.
Gilmore's ability to keep order and a business-like attitude uae1on .the field.
If the Feds can furnish suitable-not especially gay .nd giddy or gorgeous
-accommodations for the non-combatants, if they ,,ca.e.tter a fairly well.
balanced race, they should get along nicely at the gentle art of enticing the
human bug through the turnstile. All baseball quality is comparative; and
there will be no direct way to compare the stars of this league to the stars
of the National and American; so through lack of direct comparison there
can he no great loss of prestige.
WHERE IT WILL HELP.
It is also our belief that continuous baseball will help in those cities
which heretofore have boasted but one club-and frequently haven't boasted
any too loudly about that.
Baseball is the great summer amusement of the Ameirican people, yetIere
tofore in, large and thriving commonwealths, such as Pittsburg, Cleveland,
Bcffalo and some others, there are frequent gaps of two and three weeks
where the native inhabitants are unable to see a ball game.
That is where continuous baseball, provided it doesn't conflict, will help.
Attending ball games is for a good part a matter of habit. If the fan gets
accustomed to watching baseball he doesn't want to stay away. The habit
grows. But let him desist for a spell and the habit of staying away also
grows. In cities of 300,000 people and upward there are cetrainly enough peo
ple to support continuous baseball. It is only where conflicting dates arrive
that damage will be done, and as far as possible the new circuit should work
to avoid all such-not only for its own good, but for the good of the game.
Here's an example of what we mean by the help furnished by continuous
Take the case of Boston in 1912. The Red Sox had a championship club
and the Braves a tall-ender. The Red Sox rush developed new fans and
greater interest. When they left town the fanatics shifted, in part at least,
to see the Braves. They were baseball hungry and desired to be. fed daily.
The Braves drew in more people than they would have drawn if there had
been only one club.
In New York, the Yankees benefit through the Giants. McGraw's club,
up in the race, draws big crowds and wakes up baseball interest. When the:
Yanks reach home hundreds of these Giant fans, well aroused, troop out to
see the Yankees play, even though .struggling around the foot. If only the
Yanks has represented New York last spring when Chance's club was a bad
last, instead of five or six thousand attending each daily matinee, the at
tendance would soon have dropped to five or six hundred.
But, you say, suppose both clubs representing a town are tail-end contend
ers. What then?
Quite simple. Two failures are certainly no improvement over one. The'
answer is St. Louis after July, where on ordinary occasions an audience of!
726 souls is a record affair. But in rival circuits one good club can help a poor*
one, provided the poor one isn't so badly decayed that the odor is offensive.
THE TEST YEAR.
Organized baseball will observe the Feds this season; and if they manage
ti, slip by at fair speed with fair success, organized baseball will extend the
"Welcome to Our City" war cry by next fall. For continuous baseball is sure,
to come sooner or later, and it might as well be established now and the
worry ended. It's a foolish argument to insist that the greatest summer
amusement ever known in cities of 300,000 or 400,000, or 600,000 is only good
for two weeks at a time-when other amusements of far less general attrac
tiveness are running along without a break to the daily route.
THE CONFLICTING CITIES.
Where the fur will fly in various directions must be in St. Louis and Chi
cago. where conflicting dates are unavoidable. Ii SFt. Louis it will be the sur
vival of .the one thatlasn't the unfittest, If the St. Louis Feds are well up in
thb race, with the Browns and Cardinals trailing-the F'eds will absorb the bulk
of the swag. Otherwise the Feds will probably be mobbed for inflicting an
other epidemic upon an already stricken citadel.
But, after all. Chicage is the spot wherp the merriest sections of the con
fltcts will be waged.. Comiskey and his \White Sox are impregnable-and
deservedly, so. But if Owner GTaft of the Cubs, who has always upheld Mur
phly's policies and shown himlaif to be a Murphy type ,of baseball citizen;
persists in his policy to install '.i urphy henchman as president of the Cubs,
we'll bet .another cigarette against another match that the Feds outdraw thq
Cubs unlesq Hank O'Day loses control of himself and swings his %people into
the thick of the pennant fight. If the Cubs are out of it by July and the
Feds are in it--meaning the flag soiree-good night to the interest on $760;000.

JOHNNY EVERS, JR.
A veritablb chip of the old block is
Johnny Evers, Jr., the lively little son
of the former manager of the Chicago
Cubs. There is this difference be

crack player in the little one.
ated and the president's appeal an
swered. With the' cloture rule in
force, the house immediately began
the 20 hours of general debate on the
Debate on Bill.
Representative Sims of Tennessee,
the author of the repeal bill, made the
first speech in support of his meas
ure. He was frequently interrupted
by cheers and applause in which the
crowds in the galleries joined. He
argued against the economic policy
of the free passage of American ships
through the canal.
Debate against the repeal was
opened by Representative Underwood,
who delivered a prepared, detailed ar
gument to show that under the vari
ous treaties, the United States' has
the right to prescribe such tolls as
it deems necessary for vessels using
the canal. The house' cheered the ma$
iority leader's arguments, based on
the treaties between America and
Great Britain, in which he held that
the United States has the sovereign
control of the canal zone and declared
that to repeal the free tolls provision
was to surrender that right. Gredt
Britain, he said, could not properly
contend that the United States, under
the treaties, was not free to exempt
its ships from tolls if it saw fit.
Representative Palmer of Pennsyl
vania told the democrats that "oppo
sition within the ranks of the party
to the president in this question
amounted virtually to impeachment
of either the veracity or the intelli
gence, of the president."
"The 'country has never failed here
tofore to sustain every president who
spoke for the country," he said,
"whether his, utterance meant peace
or called for war. And, it is because
they realize, this full well that gentle
men adroitly sidestep the real issue
and, spend their time, their talents
and their energies in discussing mat
ters which now belong to the realm
of, ancient history.
Secretary Bryan let it be known
that he was with the president on
the issue and was heartily in favor
of the Eims bill. He said he favored
the preclusion of amendments to the
special rule because the resolution
itself presented the issue.
. While the fight on the rloor of the
house was going on, Secretary Dan
iels sat in the press gallery in his ca
pacity as editor of the Raleigh News
sad Observer, losing his .dentity as a
cabinet officer 'as he worked away
with the other correspondents on the
story of the day.
President Wilson was at luncheon
with his family and Secretary Tu
