ed batter is added to the line-up.
Saier will do well against the south
paws, but Williams and Flack are not
so certain. Kniseley usually replaced
Cy when the Cubs faced a southpaw
last year, and Flack's job frequently
went to Hanford when the Feds were
confronted by a portsider.
Cubs beat a bunch of Cubs yester
day, 16 to 11. They were outhit, 21
to 14, and Packard and Prendergast
were the pitching victims. Alex Mc
Carthy played third base for the Cu
bans and combed five hits. Cy Wil
liams poled two doubles and a single
off the Cuban heavers.
But the rest of the Cubs, were not
hitting as well as they should and
failed to show the requisite amount
of ginger and determination.
There are no surprises in the first
Sox team as picked by Manager Row
land for combat with the Texas
league clubs. Fournier, Collins, Ter
ry and Weaver form the infield; Mur
phy, Jackson and Felsch compose the
outfield; S chalk and Lynn are the
catchers, and the pitchers will be
It is quite probable that the infield
line-up will start the season. Weaver
has shown well at third base and
Terry is the best young shortstop
shown for some time. His hitting is
still a question, of course, but he han
dles himself competently at the plate.
The fact that he bats right-handed
is in his favor, for Rowland, like
Tinker, has a wrecking crew of left
Lynn has cemented himself to a
place on the team and may be
Schalk's first assistant, leaving Jack
Lapp as an instructor for the pitch
ers. Lynn has had no big league ex
perience, but he conducts himself
much after the fashion of Ray, being
quick and a fine thrower. He has
yet to show himself as a batter.
This probably means that Walter
Mayer will go back to a minor league.
This boy has always fallen just short
of big league caliber. His hitting is
good, but in the other departments
he hardly classes with the other
catchers of the league.
Connie Mack is having the same
old trouble. His pitchers held the
Braves to nine hits, but tossed in so
many passes the National leaguers
won in a walk.
Teams from C. A. A. and I. A. C.

games at St Louis tomorrow.
Loomis, Eby, Goelitz, McKeown, Ray,
Bechtel, Meyers and Tierney are
some of the stars who will represent
the local clubs.

Charley White has gone to New

fight with Freddie Welsh for Kansas
City. Charlie said the fight was a
sure thing, but that has been heard

lightweight champ until he steps
into the ring.
