Training Camp. ,
I!- WILLIAM rCET.
No sooner had President Jimmy Mc--Meer.
of the Boston Red Sox, returned
to the Hub from a vacation spent in
Yonnsstoan. Ohio, and other hamlets,
than members of his world's champion
ship bail club called upon him.
Several days agro Larry Gardner, the
Sox third sacker, and Cljde Engle.
utility infielder. drifted in to see their
boss and the next monflng lengthy in
terviews were printed from each player.
During the fanfest Gardner declared
that in his opinion the Red Sox would
be in better shape than ever to earn'
off the American League championship
during the coming season. "We have
nassed through the are," he added, "and
as far as I can see there Is only one
team to fight for the lead, and that
club is the Athletics."
At this stage Clyde Engle butted in,
and what he said is of more than passing
interest to local fans.
"Toure right there," touchsafed Engle.
"I do not look for Washington to do
much. They had a lot of luck last year
and a wonderful run of victories, which
is almost Impossible for them to repeat.
That kept them in the race and made
them contenders to the finish. Nine
teen hundred and thirteen will see a
different story in Washington."
Griff will probably worry and lose his
shape over the foregoing printed Inter
view from a Red Sox substitute. If Mr.
Engle will take time to look up the rec
ords of games plajed between Washing
ton and Boston last summer he will no
tice that the Nationals were the onl
club in the league that gave the Red Sox
any kind of a rub, and the chances are
that had GrifTs bunch been up within
striking distance of the top during the
last two weeks of the seaton with only
Boston to beat out. a different pennant
story would hae been written.
Engle calls the National-! lucky. I'er
liaps they were, but from Griff down to
the bat boy the opinion lat fall prc ailed
thai if only Boston stood between Wash
ington and the pennant, with four out of
live games to ottle the argument, the lo
cal club would have been returned the
Kitty Bransfield. former Philadelphia
and Pittsburg star, who last season man
aged the Montreal club, of the Interna
tional League, will pay a personal visit
to the Vashlngton training camp this
spring for the purpose of looking over
tny of Griffs young ball placrs not quite
lipc for the big show.
Bransfleld's idea is not a new- one by
an means. Frequently such trips have
resulted in minor league clubs landing
promising onng players. It is doubt
ful, however, if Griff has anybody likely
to appeal to the Montreal pilot but you
never can tclL
Harry Davis' Mistake.
Ed Bang, of the Clevelard News, takes
txception to the idea of Manager Joe
Birmingham, of the Naps, becoming a
bench manager next season. . Only one
position In Cleveland's outfield is a cer
tainty. This is right field, where Joe
Jackson will hold forth. The candidates
for center field and left field are: Ryan.
Grane. Leibold. Beall. and Hendryx. It
is pomted out that Birmingham should
be in condition to Jump into the fray at
nny minute. In cautioning Birmingham
against not getting Into playing shape.
"Birm should profit bv the mistake
Harry bails made last spring- DavK
then manager of the Naps, did not at
tempt to get Into playing condition, con
tenting himself with directing the team
from the bench He was banking on Ed
Hohnhorst as the regular first baseman
AVhen Hohnhorst failed. Davis was right
up against it. There wasn't a chance for
him to jump into the breach and do
either himself or the team Justice. Then
followed experiment after experiment at
first base which did not terminate until
the coming of Doc Johnston. Had Daxis
'worked out with his bys at Mobile and
New Orleans and come North in playing
condition he could have filled in admira
bly at first base, and the chances are
had he done so he not only would havh
won the confidence of the fans, but the
Naps also would have won a number of
games that were chalked up In the lost
column, and he might still be manager of
the local team.
"Birmingham Is a classy fielder, an ex.
cellent thrower, a rapid-fire thinker,
fair batter, and a fair base runner. He
has always been the balance wheel of
the Cleveland outfield. With Birmy out
of center the Naps' fly chastrs have gen
orally hae been at sa. He owes It to
himself, to the boys under him, and the
Cleveland fan family to set the pace for
his players In the matter of conditioning
himself for the 1913 campaign at Pensa
cola. Fla., and New Orleans, La , the
coming spring, for he may be needed as
a player as well as manager."
Stovall Taking Chances.
George Stoall. of the St, Louis Browns.
Is taking a chance few managers would
care to run In the matter of his catching
department. fatovc!. having released
everything in thp receiver line that savors
of the veteran, finds himself with a staff
of three men, tho only one of whom that
can boast big league experience being
Alexander, who had a few games under
his bald rick last fall. W'th a bunch of
joung pitchers -working with colt catch
ers, the battery end of the game is
certain to be in hot water. The misfor
tune of it all is that the pitching talent
is of real promise and would have a 20
per cent greater efficiency under -cteran
Stovall may have something up his
Flecve that he has not gicn out But
unless he sees something more reliable
than Agnew, Alexander. Snell. and re
cruit talent he will have to be marvel
ously lucky to get by.

Miss Edna O'Harra, secretary of the

will leave Chicago for Glendora, 'Cal ,
this evening Instead of Saturday, eventng,
as previously planned. The change was
caused by the arrival of a telegram
last night from Mrs Chance. In which
she informed him that the Cub Ranch
had been touched by the frost. The wire
did not apprise him as to thi extent of
the damage. He tried to arrange to go
last cening, but was unable to secure
'I do not think the frost did much

If It was really serious I think Mrs.
Chance would hate Informed me. If the
frost did ruin the crop I estimate my loss
nt about JU.OJ0 for this season.
Tills Is the first time Glendora has
beep touched by frost. The trees on my
ranch are more, than twenty years old
and were bearing greater this season
than ever before. It the trees are af
fected it will be two or three years be
fore they will bear again. Should that
be the case my loss will amount to
nearly $30,0)0. so It probably was a wise
thing for me to sign with New York.
"I certainly am doing some traveling
this winter. I do not expect to be homo
more than three weeks, as I will have
to leave the ranch again about Feb
ruary IL It will take me a week or
luoro to pack up mj duds, for I will re

about February 17. While I am In the
East I expect to be treated by a doc

when the season opens."
Erery Former Coach Is Asked to Help
' This Year's Football
New Haven. Conn. Jan. 10. Capt.
Henry H. Ketcham. of the Yale varsity
football eleven, made It plain last night,
notwithstanding that Yale football win
have a paid head coach and an adtlsory
committee for next year's coaching, that
all the old football coaches will be wel
comed during the football season the
tame as heretofore.
He made this statement:
"I hope as captain of next year's team
that every old coach will feel that ho is
wclcomo hero next year and will give
his best help to the success of Vale foot
ball. Wc must have absolute unanimity
next fall and I shall receive gladly any
suggestions, or they may be made to
the committee. The general outcome of
the recent, football conference here was
a unanimous opinion that the main fea
tures of Yale s past methods should re
main Intact, but that ways and means
should be devised to assist the captain
in meeting the increasing responsibilities
of the situation, especially by making
more available the lnvaluablo services of
the many able leaders of the past and
suggesting more definite methods for
using such services.
It was agreed that the present meth
ods in coaching were Inadequate to pres
ent needs, inasmuch as they didn't, and
perhaps could not, use to the best ad
vantage all available resources, but It
was agreed further that the proper
remedy lay rather in revising and per
fecting the old 8) stem of coaching than
In tho introduction of a new system
which should supplant undergraduate
Initiative and responsibility.
"There was entire unanimity also In
the sentiment against all means or meth
ods which had any suggestion of profes
sionalism or commercialism.

New York, Jan. 10. Final arrangements
were made yesterday to take the High
landers to Bermuda for the spring train
ing trip this year. As Manager Frank

Having yet to recover from the sting
of the defeat handed them by Princeton,
the Georgetown basket-ball team met
disaster at the bands of the Loyola
College team last night at the Arcade,
3 to 15. Outplayed, outgeneraled, and
outclassed, the Blue and Gray outfit
lowered Its colors for the first time on
their home floor this season.
From the outset of the contest it was
evident that the 1 1 ill toppers would hare
a hard time landing the game, as the
Baltimore lads had their ees trained on
the baskets and It seemed that they
could not miss a goal. Loyola had reg
istered six points before a tally had
been rung up for the Georgetown team.
This was the only tally registered by the
llllltoppers during the first half, Wal
dron caging the ball from the side lines.
Shucrlck and Cook caged the bail from
the center of the 'court, bringing tho
spectators to their feet cheering.
Numerous fouls marred the contest,
and the players had to be warned by the
referee about rough playing. In the sec
ond half two men were put out of the
game for fouls. Wetzell started the Blue
and Gray outfit on their uphill climb In
the second period with a shot from the
center of the floor. Georgetown seemed
to wake up after this shot and started
to close in on the Baltimore lads, but
could not overcome tho great handicap
th Loyola boys had on them. Fresh
men were put In trying to stem the tide.
but to no avail. The Baltimore lads had
tasted blood and were playing the game
of their lives.
"Johnny" Shugrue. plaving left for
ward In place of Jack Martin, and Kelly
In place of Lane, did most of tho scoring
for Georgetown, each making two goals
from difficult angles. Wetrel. the Cali
fornia star, played by far the best de
fensive frame that has been seen on local
courts this season, time after time hav
ing what seemed a sure goal. Both
Corcoran nnd Shucrlck had their eyes
keen for the basket on shots from the
foul line, caging between them six out
pofccilile ten. while on the other
hand Ualdron was wa off, only regis
tering one out of eight tries.
Georgetown showed lack of practice
and this figured iarcelv In their defeat-
