taken care of for many seasons, as
Williams has several years of useful
ness yet before him.
Here's a prediction. Larry Cheney
or one of the recruits, Adams and
Standridge, will pitch the first local
game of the National league sched
ule. Cheney, as usual, is showing a
lot of early season effectiveness, and
Bresnahan is grooming him to start
off with a rush and put the team up
in the first flight, just as Larry did
two years ago. And the two rookies
are showing just about as much stuff
as the veteran.
Their effectiveness, remember, is
being developed against big league
teams like the Mackmen and Phillies,
GEORGES STILL OUT THERE
AMID THE BULLETS
The latest picture taken of Georges
Carpentier before he went to the
front to fight for France. The Euro
pean heavyweight champion has not
been shot, as periodical reports will
have it, and is still at the wheel of his
car whisking officers about along the
and strong minors, such as LouisvilleJ
They are not displaying their wares
before Class C organizations. It is
probably that Vaughn and Humi?
phries wil lbe held bacK, and ZabeLj
will go in early. Vaughn, ot course,)
will do some early duty, but he need,
not be hurried, as Bresnahan seemsat
to have better luck than usual in his;,'

Louisville was trimmed, 4 to 2,
mainly through the good pitching ofn
Cheney and Adams and the hard bat-u

were scored in one inning. ?
Coast league critics, we under-n

my Quinlan, the new lead-off man
of the White Sox. But it is hard to
see where a place is to be found forn
the young outfielder. If he s regu-ii
larly employed it means a vacations!
for Felch, Collins or Fournier, and')
it doesn't seem possible to keep onev
of that trio out of the daily fray. '
Collins is a veteran gardener. Hal
can bat, field and run bases. Felch
is a fine-looking youngster, and oiu
the coast has been batting lustily!
Fournier is a .300 hitter who haSl
made his mark, and if a White Soxv
team can afford to keep a natural .300i
hitter on the bench, then all the dope-v
sheets can be tossed away. Jack iSw
the first regular in quite some time
who has batted over .300 for a sea-
son while wearing a Sox uniform. "i
And we venture the remark thati
the leadoff position isn't giving Row
land much worry. He has Buck
Weaver for the job, and Buck proved!
last year that he can do the work inl
ship-shape manner. Quinlaiyeay ben
