Yanks' Record Better
Than It Was Last Year
With Ruth in Line-Up
, However, Babe's Absence Has
Cost Owners of Club Lots
By Bozeman Bulger.
WITH a day off to await the
coming of tho Red Box hos
tilities resuming this after
noon the Yanks havo had a chance
o look themeelves over, to check up
and see how matters stood.
Tho American Lcngtio champs arc
not unhappy at tho Inventory.
Deeplto their early forebodings thoy
hare won ten games and lost "three
without cither Bob Mcusel or tho
mighty Bambino. That being fur bet
ter than was dono with tho Babo
present last spring, there is no room
fof a loud holler.
But Iho owners have lost wads of
dough real money. An American
Ieogu6 magnato expressed tho opin
ion yesterday that tho absenco of
Jtuth as a drawing card for thirty
daya would cost tho league more than
''And,' ho added, being an out-of-.towner,
"It costs tho other clubs more
than It does the YankB. It ficcma to
me the punishment aimed at Uabc
went over his shoulder and has
slammed the Innocent bystander right
on tho button. Ituth's suffering has
consisted of being a great hero In the
theatre. Tough on that boy, Isn't It?"
In the meantime. Miller Ilugglns
has been skilfully building up his ball
club for another pennant, with little
thought of bankroll or the missing
stars. He Is getting loaded for bear
for fear somebody else should break
a leg; And, believe me, he's been no
sucker when It comes to picking his
powder and shot.
Right when everybody thought
thero was no chance of getting a
veteran outfielder to rcplaco the ab
sent members of Murderers' Row the
Yank manager slipped off one night
and came back with Whltey Witt.
Connie Mack let this young man go
because Whltey was unhappy with
the Athletics and also with his Ath
letic salary. It was a tcnstrlke.
That one move gave the Yank ma
chine real ball bearings. Tho old bus
now goes with a snap and speed. It
Is not an exaggeration to say that
Whltey Witt has proved tho most
powerful addition the club has had In
ten years. Thero Is no better lead-off
man In the country just tho thing
tho Yanks needed.
In nearly every aggressive rally of
Iho past week Witt's speed has led
It. Also ho has hit hard when hard
hits were needed..
Before tho coming of Witt, though
Ilugglns already had strengthened his
club up to championship standard by
the pick-up of McMillan. There is
another fast young man and a hard
hitter. Then Chick I'cwstcr set In as
an outfielder. He has been going so
good that he cannot bo removed, El
mer Miller, you know, Is out from
being hit on tho shin with a pitched

well, maybe you hadn't thought of
this: For nearly a week tho entlro
regular outfield Ruth, Meusel and
.Minor navo ueen out. ana uunng
that tlmo tho club went on a winning
spurt that lasted seven games.
Experts lamented tho absenco of
Ruth and Mcusel as a blow that would
break tho backs of tho champs. But
now thcy'vo also lost Miller tempor
arily and still tho outfit whlucs
right along. That's a ball club.
Ono more littio matter grlof over
tho fact that old man Frank Baker
would have to play third until tho
club got readjusted has turned Into
wild shouts of Joy. Tho old gentle
man has been tearing up tho grass
around third busa with his speed, and
tho way lib has' been poling tho ball
nlrc.ady lias won two games single-
handed ono smash per game.
It had been planned to get Mc-
Nally or Ward back on third Just as
soon as somebody could bo spared
from tho outfield to play second
meaning Fewster. But thcro's no
bother ubout that now. It would tako
an act of Congress to pry the venor
nblo Mr. Baker off that corner. He

Braves, but Won the
NCLE ROBBIE brought his
Brooklyn Dodgers back to
Flatbush to-day after a most
successful Invasion of Boston. Thq
four days In tho Hub wore spent In
winning three of tho four games from
tho Braves, who In tho winter had
dreams of gaining an early start at
tho expense of tho Dodgers and Phil
lies. Tho Phillies took three of four
from the Braves In the opening scries
of the season, and the Dodgers re
peated this week, leaving the Braves
In a depressed frame of mind for the
scries. They start to-day with tho
Qlants at Braves Field In Boston.
Tho Dodgers began badly In Bos
ton by losing the tlrst gatno by 8 to
but they took tho next three easily,
concluding the performance yesterday
when thoy burled the Braves by 12
to C, to the accompaniment of a win
ter wind that nearly froze, tho Angers

To-day tho Dodgers open at Ebbcts
Field In a series of four games with
tho Phillies. They grabbed a Sunday
gamo In Brooklyn from the Phillies on
April 16 by 10 to 2, ami then ac
companied tho Quaker City team to
Philadelphia for a scries of thrco
games. Rain called off the entlro

a National Leaguer in ono capacity
or another, made a successful debut
as nn Ameilcan Leaguer, pluylng

the Indians, and displayed all his old

pep. and alertness that beat the Saints
out of a pennant in 1908. Evers while
at tho bat In tho first inning "kidded"

Giants Open Series
With Braves To-Day
Arthur Nehf Is Slated
Twirl for the World's
By Robert Boyd.
BOSTON, Mass., April 2S. The
Giants arrived hero to-day from Phil
adelphia to entertain Fred Mitchell's
Boston Braves lor four days with
their winning ways. Tho fans up
here are a discouraged lot of folks.
Onco out at Fenway Park thoy
boasted a great ball club In tho Red
Sox, but Harry Frazeo dynamited that
club out thero and tho only thing the
Uostonlan loser of tho National gume
takes prldo In In the American Lcaguo
representatives Is tho fact that thoy
sill! wear tho traditional red stock
ings, tho only thing that remains as
it memory of tho onco great ball clubs
that pastlmed at Fenway Park.
Now the average fan who struts
along the picturesque promcnado of
Boston Common lowers his head In
Ms Increased "sorrow for, so fur thlB
i.enson, Fred Mitchell's braves havo
made a sorrowful showing. Last sea
son, well on toward tho close of the
National League pennhnt race, tho
BravcB were recognized as a uangcrr
ous "dark horse." Even when they
'went South much was expected from
