There are several players on the Ore
gon team who are looked upon as stars
In their own home town. Johnnie
Beckett, captain of the team, Is a veteran
r four years experience. He usually
plays at tackle, but because of his punt
ing and line plunging ho will be used at
fullback against Penn. Kvery critic
labelled Beckett an All-Coast man this
season. Oregon expects a lot from

Shy Huntington, at quarterback. Is
th Berry of the Oregon eleven. He Is
a spectacular player and most consistent
ground gainer on the Western eleven.
Throughout the season Huntington has
advanced the ball when all others failed.
He la doubly dangerous, as he does the
drop kicking and time after time fools
opponents by running with the ball from
Jehnnle Parsons, last year's captain

DrrsoiT, Dec. SO. Thirty-three play
ers are expected to compose the Detroit
American League baseball squad which
will start spring training at Waxahachle.
Tex., early in March. The official roster
of the club made public to-night Indi
cated that Manager Jennings would look
over the largest band of recruits he has
ever tried out.
It la understood that neither Catcher
Del Baker nor Frank Fuller, utility In
Haider, will train with the Detroit club.
Baker will probably be released to Hsu
Francisco and Fuller also Is to be let
out to a minor league club.
Manager Jennings and President
Kevin have decided upon o. training
trip which will be radically different
from any the Detroit club has ever
taken. No games will be scheduled with
weak minor league clubs, but a series of
exhibition contests with the New York
Nationals will t played In Texas, Ok

Billy Sullivan Is probably through with
baseball. William, who served aa coach to

President Navln that he will stick to his

old timers like Oscar Stanage and 'Tub"
Spencer on the Job the Tigers ought to
bo fully equipped with catching experi
ence for handling young hurlers.
The Job which faces owners of ball
clubs of picking out successful men as
managers has many a queer angle, ror
Instance, an athlete's teputatlon as a
player can rarely be taken as a fair In
dication as to what IiIh success will be
ns -a pilot. McGraw and Jennings were
leal stars In their playing prime. Clark
Griffith was good. Hugglns was a bet
ter player than his record ban shown
him to be ns a manager. But several of
the others who are handling big league
clubs have achieved relatively greater
fame as pilots than us players
And the same goes for players who
worked under successful regimes. The
old Baltimore Orioles turned out quite
x school of successful pilots. But on
the other hand, Ihe Cub.s of the lialojon
days have failed to yield anything like
an average crop of successful leaders.
In fact Pat Moran Is the only member
of that once celebrated clan to rciu4i
an J- notable heights in a managerial
role. And Pat was never a highly
active member of the club In a playing
Johnny Itllng was always conceded a
smart ball player. Yet as u manager
John failed. Johnny livers had a thor
ough trial at the head of the club
which as a player he helped to make
famous. Yet the Trojan was considered
ii disappointment. Joe Tinker drew tho
most thorough tryout of tho entire
bunch. First at Cincinnati, then nt
Ohlcago with the Federals and later
with the Cubs, Joseph was entrusted
with leadership. 'He was a sad failure
at Cincinnati. He auoceeded in winning
one pennant for the Feds at Chicago,
but his 1916 administration of the Cubs
Mordecal Brown was another to draw
a chance as manager In what at least
claimed' to be a major league. But like
a majority of his mates the Old Miner
fell flat on the Job as manager of the
St. Louis Fods. Jlmn.y Sheckard was
tried out In the American Association
and he likewise proed a disappointment.

Chicago Nationals Lone Major
league Club to Change
By FnRDETtlCK 43. MRS.
The present winter 1s likely to set a
lecord for the small number of mana
gerial changes which will take place In
the major league.. So far there has
been only one shift, Kred Mitchell suc
ceeding Joe Tinker as manager of the
Cubs. This In all likelihood will be the
only cbango when the sixteen clubs line
up next spring.
While Carrlgan has not yet an.
nounced definitely that he win be back
with the Tied Sox. friends say Carrlgan
can be coaxed. The coaxing will likely
depend on a salary which Carrlgan may
deem be Is worth cifter twice piloting a
team to the highest honors In the base
ball world. We do not mean to Intimate
that Carrlgan was holding out for a
Mcaraw-Stalllngn salary when he an
nounced his retirement, but that he
would not refuse one.
Bill really would retire If given half
a. chance. If let alone there Is no doubt
that he would remain In his Iewlston
home next summer, but Carrlgan Is 1
nuslness man. and If Krazee & Ward
write out a big enough check Carrlgan
will again command the destinies of the
Looking back over the nast half dozen
winters. It appears ns though the present
tendency Is to hold on to manugers
longer than in the past. Formerly It
was the regular thing for six or eight
clubs to change managers during the
winter months. Cincinnati, tho Braves.
Browns and Indians always could be
depended upon to cause speculation as
lo the Identity of their next managers,
but In recent years the Culm have held
the limelight almost to themselves.
When Kred Mitchell, the new bruin
mannger. looks behind him he Ii likely
to feel chills around his ankles. Since

incidentally while discussing Tinker
It may be added that Joe was not forced
off the Cubs because of his Federal
Iengue adventures. If Joe hsd been
able to do better In Chicago last sum
mer there Is no question that he would
have been retained. If the question had
hinged entirely on Charley Weoghman
he would have been retained.
Joe lost out In Chicago for the sWipie
reason that he did not bring results.
Ho had been no shining light as a man
ager when he tried tt In ClnclnnnM In
1913 nnd his percentago that year was
considerably lower than that of lha team
managed by O'Day In 1911. O'Day fin
Uhed fomth nnd Tinker dropped the
team to seventh In 1913.
Tinker did well In his two years in
the Federal League, but with every
chance for success made a dismal failure
out of his Chicago National undertaking
last season, With n fourth place Na.
tlou.il league tram at his disposal a
iiuh which had led the league for a sood
part of the preceding year and a Federal
league Hag winner the mersed clubs
piodiioed a Joke team, tho first Cub team
that wound up In the second division
since 1901!. Second division ball does not
do In Chicago.
