New Tork. March ; The baseball war

being circulated here this afternoon.
President James A. Gllmore, of the
Federals, so says the rumor, has been
In communication for the last few days
with the leaders of the National and
merican League. The men will confab
here the latter part of the week and then
the war will be over.
The plan that will end the war, accord
ing to the rumor, is this:
The Federals will abandon their plans
for an eight-club league this year, and
will drop Chicago and St. Louis, mak
ing It a. six-club organization for 1911.
Charles Weeghman, owner of the Chicago
Federal team, will be allowed to pur
chase the Chicago Cub franchise and Otto
Stlfel, the St. Louis Federal League
owner will be allowed to purchase the
St. Louts Cardinal franchise.
The organized baseball people will at
ence recognize the Federal League and
will declare it a major league organiza
tion. The Federals will operate this year
under the protection of organized base
ball, and all the players the Federals
have under contract will be allowed to
remain in that circuit. The six remaining
clubs will be allowed to divide the players
Next season, however, according to
the rumor, the Fedeials will be an eight

Fill Role of Utility Mah
Musser Says Atlanta Player
Stands Chance to Make
Good with Climbers.
OTHER SPORT COMMENT
By WILLIAM PEKT,
With the sale of Frank Laporte
to the Kansas City club during the
fajr end of last season, Griffith has
but one player of known ability
left for extra mhelder, viz., joe
Gedeon, the Pacific Coast young
Gedeon was carried all last year
by the Climbers and managed to
get into several box scores. 'He
looked good enough to be retained,
and the Old Fox has ordered him
to report for spring training at
the camo of the Nationals at
From among the new recruits there
is one youngster who looks to have a
chance to press Gedeon hard for uUlity
role honors. He Is Wally Smith, the
big third sacker -purchased from the At
lanta club of the Southern League.
Paul Musser. who started the 1913 sea
son with the Crackers, declares that
Wally Smith stands an excellent chance
tn make good. In talking with the
writer about Smith, Twlrler Musser
"Keep your eye on this fellow Smith,
who played with me down In Atlanta
last year. He Is a big chap and can
hit 'em a mile. As a fielder he was
about the best down there. He Is In the
game every minute, and I look for him
to make a cood impression."
About the only thing against Smith
is the fact that he comes from St. Louis,
Mo., but he cannot be blamed for that.
Grimth stated that he had heard from
Smith within the past few days to the
effect that the player was at present
vislUng relatives In Philadelphia and
would report here Wednesday.
Manager Griffith returned from Char
lottesville late j-esterday afternoon,
where he had been since Sunday. He
watched the young twirlcrs work out In
Fayerweather gymnasium Monday morn
ing and vouchsafed the informaUon that
the weather as Just as cold and the
wind lust as hlsh In the college town
as In the National Capital.
The wind nearly blew tne youngster
out of their beds Sunday night." Griff
added, "but they tell me that warmer
weather is scheduled soon, ana i am
in hopes that by the time l arrive wiin
mv regulars on Thursday we will be
able to take to the field."
Asked what he thought or tne pncners
hn hiK been in camp more than a
week, the Old Fox stated that he had
no chance to get a line on intra, u
would not be able to pass Judgment until
the practice games started.
Manager Billy Smith, of the Atlanta
club, is having trouble signing up two
t.i.ver sent to the Crackers by the
Washington club. They are Bill Morley
and Doc Hedgepeth, and both have re
fused to sign their contracts.
Morley Is ccach cf alhleUcs at a small
Southern college, while Hedgepeth at
tends Richmond Medical College. They
have written Manager Smith that they
are too busy at present to think of base
ball, and when their respective colleges
close they may talk business.
Following are choice passages from
training camp dispatches which Indicate
that the St. Louis Browns correspon
dents, at least, are batUng in mid-season
form, and quite up to the expectation
of the club managements:
"But even in defeat the Browns looked
mighty good." .
The tide will turnr ana wnen it aoes.
It's a safe bet the Browns will spill the
hopes of quite a. few aspiring ball clubs."
Old Hughey Fullerton. the well-known
baseball expert. In a recent newspaper
story came to bat with the assertion that
this spring training stuff was a lot of
bunk, and that two weeks on the, home
ball yard was enough to put a veteran in
shape for the season.
Naturally, Mr. Fullerton has started
countless arguments. Clark Griffith does
not agree with the well-known expert.
and says that at least a month is needed,
for the reason that after a winter of
Inactivity most athletes Just develop lame
muscles, with a couple of weeks'
spring work, and that at least two weeks
more is needed to get rid of this sore
ness. Fcr pitchers Griff thinks that five
weeks during the early spring Is not any
too much time.
During the game between the Giants
and White Sox played before King

ROUTINE FOR ATHLETICS
Dy EDDIE COLLINS,
of the Athletics.
When this story appears in print
nearly all ot the major league
teams will have departed for points
South, to prepare for the 1914
campaign. After a winter of idle
ness, that is, an absence of strenu
ous exercise such as characterizes
his summer routine, one might nat
urally suppose that a ball player
would look with delight upon a
journey to warm Dixieland and a
return to his favorite pastime. But
get this erroneous idea out of your
head. The spring training trip is
not a pleasure jaunt by a long shot.
There is usually an atmosphere of Im
patience on the part of the players,
young and old alike, to get Into a uni
form the first day, but after that it's
Aches, pains and general soreness of
tho body arc very much In evidence on
days two. three and four In a training
camp. Thereafter, however, the going
is not so hard.
The Idea of spring training is, of
course, to condition the old plaiers, try
out and develop others, and to whip
the team into proper shape to begin the
approaching season's grind. The routine
of work which "Connie" Mack plans for
his men I will try to outline.
We have two general practices dally,
morning and afternoon. The morning
session usually begins at 9:20. and that
means everybody In uniform at that time.
Promptness Is requested, because It has
been our custom to share the playing
field with the local club of the city where
we train". We have the diamond unUI 11:
the locals take their workout from that
hour until 2, and then we start in again
and continue until I or longer If a game
Is In progress.
Batting generally Inaugurates the
morning work. Regulars first and then
the yanlgans or younger memlers of the
squad take their turn up at the plate.
Pitchers, both oung and old. take turns

Raker Break It L'p.
Last year, when we were In San An
tonio, Mclnnls. Barry and I used to go
off in a corner and start a separate bat
ting game, as we had to' wait too long
for a turn up at the plate with the
other regulars. We had no trouble get
ting one of the new youngsters to pitch
to us, and we were doing finely, and get

Baker happened to spy us. and assum
ing that it was an infield game, naturally
decided that be belonged in it. and would
be welcomed. So lie came over. It was
all right until he hit one back at our re
cruit pitcher which struck the latter
amidships, and then our game was over.
The Kid must have pased the word
around, because after that we never
could get any of the Juveniles to throw
to us as long as Bake was one of
After the batting practice. Infield work

the morning work. The afternoon session
is practically a repetition of the morning
one. with the addition of a game between
the yanlgans and the regulars, of first
one squad and then the ether against
the local club.
These practices are not ruled with an
Iron hand. On the contrary, we shift
or ourselves, anu go tnrougn tne uauy

But do not let me give the Impression
that "Connie" Mack is not in attendance.

Why Is It. Mr Mack." one of the
newspaper men asked of "Connie" one
day. "you do not pay more attention to
your regular men?"
Because they know what's expected
of them, and each one knows better how
he can attain that point of phisical pro
ficiency than I do. Consequent!). I do
not try to lay down any set of rules or
routine of work for them to follow. As

So answered our manager, and that Is
exactly the line he pursues. His whole
attention Is centered upon his recruits
and the younger members of the team.
When the latter are having their Infield
work, he usually strolls out back ot sec
ond base, or If the outfielders are chasing
files, he is right out In their midst. When
ever Ira Thomas warms up a young
pitcher, "Connie" always manages to get
around back of him and looks over his
assortment. He talks with, the recruits
ana youngsters freely, individually and
collectively, and when he umpires some
of the Regular-Yanlgan games, I am
satisfied that he always gives the latter

When It comes time to break camp,
and the squad divides, the regulars return
home first, to play the spring series with
the Phillies, but "Connie" remains with
his yanlK-.il bunch and makes the trip
back to Philadelphia a gradual one. play

In this manner he keeps In touch with
