Today the Cubs are in Savannah
for a one-day engagement with the
team from that cityVfrom -whence
they go to Birmingham for games
Friday and Saturday. The weather is
excellent for baseball, and Bresna
han is using his regular team. The
Cubs have had better luck at Tampa
than either of the other Chicago
teams in their training camp, and
right now the majority of the play
ers are strong enough and active
enough to go into a big league ball
Bert Humphries is the only cripple,
his wounded knee being still a trifle
weak. He will not be missed, how
ever, during the early part of the
race, and win be strong when the
dash settles into a marathon distance.
Roger may not do any more be
heading until his team gets back to
Chicago. He has five youngsters yet
to be cut off, but they can be retained
until May. It is the manager's desire
to place them where they can gain
experience, as he believes there is
some good material in the young
.pitchers, especially Robbins and
Joe Tinker's Whales must do the
bulk of their actual baseball training
after the season opens on the north
side next Saturday. The outlook is
bad at Shreveport for any more dia
mond work before the team departs
for Marshall, Ter., where a game is
scheduled with the Kawfeds. Condi

and there is a bare possibility that
all the exhibition dates may be cut
off, the team coming home the mid
dle of next week and putting in its
finishing licks in the Federal park.
Physically, the athletes are well
trained. They have gone through a
course of hardening stunts that have
conditioned them for a pennant fight
But their baseball activities have
been practically nil.
