the 'effectiveness he has exhibited in '
battles with the Pacific Coast league
Ed Walsh intends to remain on the
coast for a few days to have his arm
treated by a learned doc of that
neighborhood, and then will come on
home with the second string athletes.
Buck Weaver will catch up to the
first-chop gang after a few days'
more loitering in California.
Sox beat Redlands U., 6 to 1, in
easy game. Scott, Faber and Rus
sell each worked three innings. Col
legians got but two hits.
Yannigans beat Las Vegas, 14 to 0.
Jack Fournier was hit three times by
Manager Bresnahan of the Cubs
has a novel idea to put base running
sense into hjs hired men. He turns
the fast men loose to run wild on
the bases over their slower opporents,
and if teh slow men are run down
because of any defects in the brain
pan, the recruits are licensed to
laugh at thef and bawl raucous com
ment. . . Ridicult is the strongest weapon,
for use against the average man, and"
it should bring results, handled as
only ball players can wield it.
In the practice games as soon as a
man gets on base he must keep mov
ing. Otherwise there is a strong pos
sibility that he will find some other
athlete trealing on his heels. On one
occasion Jim Archer did not show
enough papper, and he. was neatly
roasted by Pete Standridge, rookie
pitcher. Jim then proceeded to bowl
around the paths at a speedy clip.
Roger is spacing his men so Saier
or Good come on behind some of the
fellows who are laggard in their
movements. The two flyers then
move up a base whenever the slight
est opening is presented, and keep
the local-speed boys going at express
Today the Cub squad has been re
duced to 26 players, Kluth, Gibson
aud Murphy, the find of Zim. being
decapitated. Five men must yet be
lopped off the pay roll. Three of them f
will be pitchers and one will be a
catcher. At present it does not seem
that we will see Robbins, Buckles,
Schorr or Tyree in the northern lat
itudes. Camp at Tampa will be broken to
morrow night, and the hike north .
will begin, with games billed for sev
eral cities en route. In all but one
city more than a single game is cardl
ed, which means there will be no tir
ing quick jumps.
Hitting is not prominent in the '
training work of Joe Tinker's Whales '
this spring. Gents who pestled the
pill far and wide last summer are hav
ing trouble focusing their eyes on the
ball. This applies particularly to
Zwilling, Wilson and Beck. On the
other hand, Kavanaugh and Jackson
are smiting lustily, and there is a '
strong possibility that the latter may ,
run Beck out of the job of first bas
ing. There is reason for this absence of
batting. The Whale pitchers have (
c'ome along remarkably in their early (
work and are far advanced in curving ,
the ball and putting on top speed. ;
The batters have not been allowed to
gradually accustom themselves to j
twisters after a winter's ease.
After the season starts this should ,
work to thei radvantage, and strike
outs in the spsing do not lose games
that count in the league standing.;
Gaines between right and left hand-,
ed members of the squad are put on(
every afternoon and so far the south
paws have had the better of the intra-1
club argument ,'
Lee Tannehill, one of the old guard ,
of White Sox, recently with Minneap

wants a Federal league berth.
