"nates manage to keep baseball before the public by a series of attacks,
& snrunc and many more aro expected beforo the boys launch the campaign
of 1919. There still are all kinds of uncertainty In the make-up of many blsr
league clubs, and not until the opening of tho season wilt tho fans know
Just what to expect. Even then they may be kept In tho dark.
Wblle the so-called wheels of time keep turning, a few of the wise
owners and managers have been putting through deals whereby they hope
to get the Jump on tho other fellow when tho season starts One man has
not overlooked anything In the way of strengthening his team, and that Is
Owner Harry Frazee, of tho Red Sox. Last year It will be recalled that he
went out and snared every available player through trades and cash con
ehleratlons. He built up a team rapidly that played Its way to a pennant
and a world's championship.
Despite all these trades and counter-moves to help place clubs In range
of the pennant, one celebrity almost has been forgotten. Not since the
tall of 1916 have we hcaid much from this Individual. He Is still around
and his status soon ought to be determined.
"What has becomo of Jack Barry, former Mackman and later manager
of tho Boston Red Sox? When he cast aside tho diamond togs for the blue
uniform of Uncle Sam did ho sacrifice his post of honor with the Boston
club? Whon last heard from Barry was said to bo suffering from an In.
jured knee, received In a fall down the cellar at his home Recently it was
aid, that Barry only had a light caso of water on tno Knee.

Barrv or simply CluHIan Barry, one-time big league star player nnd
Barry Made Good During Stay With Boston
BARRY went to the Red Sox, It Is said, by his own request at the start
of the 1915 season. At the tune of his departure the Boston outlook
was ndne too brilliant. With Barry tho team Jumped Into the game and
battled Its way to the pennant and a victory over the Phillies In the world's
series. The next year the Red Sox repeated their 1916 act, only using
the Brooklyn Dodgers Instead of the Phils to take tho world's title.
Carrigan retired at the end of 1916 and Jack Barry was named to
succeed him. Jack did some great work, but had to bow to the White Sox
and Kddle Collins for the pennant. At the close of the season Barry
enlisted In the navy and remained there until he was mustered out ester
day. 13d Barrow replaced Barry and made good in his first start. It Is
true he had virtually a veteran team, but It required a few master trades
to keep the club In tho running. Whether It was Barrow or rrazee who
suggested them we do not know, but It Is a tact that tho trades were
Barry has not yet announced his retiremcrt from the game. It Is not
believed he ever had any trouble with Frazee and there seems to be no
apparent reason why he should remain away from the team. Perhaps
Barry will be content to return and merely appear In the role of a second
baseman and dace all the managerial burdens upon Barrow.
I The veteran world's series hero must be given a chance, a square deal,
or there Is likely to be a big howl. Barry is a big favorite not only in the
Hub City and here, but all over the circuit. If he is sidetracked In faor
of3arrow, Frazee and the bthcr owners must explain, and it must be some
explanation. Barry Is popular with tho players, he knows how to handle
his men and his presence on the club Is valuable.
SOON as the holidays are over and the opening of the season
nrejent manager. Will he pilot Boston in lOtO, or docs he just pos
sess a contract with wartime stipulations and limitations? The fans
Frazee Has Corner on Player Market
WHEN speaking about having plenty of high-class talent on the payroll,
wo must turn to Harry Frazee's Red Sox and look over the personnel
ot his club. He seems to bo very well fortified at first base with Stuffy
Mclnnls, Dick Hoblltzell, Del Galnor and a rookie by the name of Bentley
At second base he has Dick McNally, Harold Janvrln and Jack Barry.
At shortstop Scott will be a fixture. Third, base is Just a little weak, with
Thomas as the regular and Wally Schang as utility. In the outfield there
we Amos Btrunk, Harry Hooper, Shorten, Whlteman and Gllhoo.cy, re
cently obtained from tho Yanks.
f While the Red Sox lost two great pitchers In Leonard and Shore.
j their departure should not weaken the club to such a great exjent. Shore
v was out of the game during 1918 and tne team came through. Barrow
'..till has Babe Ruth, Carl Mays, Joe' Bush, Herb Pennock and Bader, in
'addition to Kay uaiaweu and sum Love, tne latter two arriving in the
A recent trade. Caldwell apparently had outlived his usefulness as a Yankee
And the change should benefit him. Love never did do much for the
Yankees and may help Boston.
Boston, with Ruth and Leonard, had two of the best southpaws In the
game. It looks as though Barrow believes one good le't-hander Is enough
or that Love has the makings of a good, reliable portslder. In the catch
,ing department tho Red Sox are very strong. They have Agnow and
Wally Bchang for first string, with Walters, a promising youngster, to fill
In. Walters did most of tho catching for the Yankees last season.
'"N KJII'IjER IIVOOINB is more than elated with the trade, for it gave
" him two great pitchers and a reliable outfielder. The exchange
mi paper does not look any too good for Boston, but doubtless nar
row feels that the new Umber will fit n. with his machine.
" Star Boxers Heading for the Coast
TUST now wo learn that the star eastern boxers are about to head for
J tho coast Already It has been announced that Billy Gibson Is priming
Leonard for a spin around the coast circuit to prove that the foUr-round
game la easy for the lightweight champion. Now we also hear that Ted
Kid Lewis, has Called off his scheduled trip to England and instead will
rlve the coast a return enjjagement. Lewis did not meet with the same
uocm which attended Leonard's triumphant march. The ruler of tho
welters hopes to regain his lost prestige.
' j In order to keep along with tho headliners Lew Tendler has a chance
' to entertain the coast cash patrons. A few days ago a San Francisco pro
i tter wired Glasaman an offer .for Tendler for throe four-round battles.

A MEDIOCRE runner last year and a
champion this season. This Is, tho
record of v Bill Cummlngs. the Tenn
athlete, who wears the colors of the
Meadowbrook Club when he Is not com
peting for the lied and Blue.
Cummlngs was a. member of Penn'a
hlll-and-dale squad, which copped the
Intercollegiate championship In the fall
of 117, but he was not considered any
thing more than a good runner. Since
that tlmo "William has developed Into a
star, and he Is the favorlto for the Mid
dle Atlantis title, which will be staked
at the senior run In Falrmount Park
At the bcglnlng of this year Cum
mlngs showed championship form. He
was the Individual pinner In two Tenn
dual meets. He has been beaten only
once this season and then only because
ho went back to coach some of his team
mates Laat Saturday Cummlngs won the
Junior Middle Atlantic title handily and
beat a fast field In doing so. One of his
opponents was Allen Swede, the Mer
cersburg flier, who broke tho world's ln-

Swede has Just been discharged from
the army and was not in the best of
Condition. His showing was somewhat
of a, disappointment. Allen stated that
ho would not compete In the senior run
unless he finds that he can work him
self Into better shape.
There is little doubt about Meadow

In the Middle Atlantic senior run to
morrow. The 'Wanamalcer boynlhave
monopoly on the title, so that Interest
centers on the individual winner.
So far Samuol J. Dallas has received
twenty-one entries for the title race,
but more are expected today. Twelve of
these are from Meadowbrook. five from
the Dorsett Boys' Club and one from the
