Cubs May Go to Kansas City No
The Cubs 'have "finally located in
Louisville, where they were billed for
a series of. four games. Weather con
ditions have put a crimp in the plan,
and .if President Murphy can get in
communication with Manager Evers
the team wili protfably be ordered to
Kansas City to "get in a few licks of.
outdoor work before 'coming to Chi
cago to open the season against St.
Since leaving Tampa bad weather'
has been, encountered at. every stop.
But five exhibition games have been
played and the frequent work on the
hard, floors, df gymnasiums is begin
ning to tell on the men, who were in
excellent condition, when they left
Florida. They were in better shape,
to start a big. league campaign two
weeks ago than they. are. now.
Should the team remain in Louis-,
ville, without a chance for outdoor
work the players will be in miserable
condition. There is no chance for
the scheduled exhibition games in In
dianapolis, where the park is under
water and probably destroyed. The
only hope is to get into Kansas City.
It.might not be a bad plan for Evers
to bring his team, directly to Chicago
at this time. There is promise of
fair weather and two hours of out
door work in the middle of the day,
even though the temperature is not
broiling, would be of more benefit
than gymnasium stunts.
Catcher Jimmy Archer will prob
ably make no effort to join the team
before it reaches home. He will take
his practice with the University of
Chicago squad at the Midway and
also help Stagg coach the varsity ball
.tossers. Jim will, undertake no stren
uous work, and is not liable to ex
hibit his snap throw to second to the
collegians, but he will get the kinks
out1, of his' arms and legs.
