WEEGHMAN IN NEW YORK TO
SELECT CUB MANAGER
By Mark Shields
President Weeghman of -the Cubs
is in New York, from which point the
1917 manager of- the North aiders
will be announced, probably Wednes
day. Before his departure Weegh
man had nothing new to impart. In
dications are, he expects to meet the
sew boss in the big town.
That would dispose of Frank
Chance, who is in California. And
Tinker seems absolutely outyof it
Fred Mitchell and Dick Kinsella are
talked of as probable managers.
As a matter tf cold fact, the dope
sters are positively in the dark and
any predictions are guesses pure and
simple. George Stallings' visit here
last week may have been significant,
George-being Mitchell's boss. But
Stalling3 says he was here only to
buy some cattle for his plantation.
Weeghman has other shopping to
attend to besides the manger's berth.
He will try his wiles with Mrs. Brit

Infielder Roger Hornsby. The Cubs
have good pitching and fair outfleld
ing material to be used in a swap and
the Cards are in sad need of both
commodities. . Miller Huggins will
advise Mrs. Britton, and it is a long,
long time since Miller has been
stung in a trade.
Renewed agitation for the return
of Michigan to athletic relations in
the Western Conference may bear
fruit this time. ' Wolverine graduates
are backing the move actively and
may bring about this desirable result
Hopes are held out that the Mich-'
igan people wit! be back by the begin
ning of the 1917 football season.
Strength is given to this possibility
by the way football schedules were
handled at the recent athletic meet- j
ing of Big Nine coaches here. Several
of the larger institutions held off on
their schedules and left open dates.
If Michigan decides on a come-back
it could be given these dates.
Pride and prestige niay play some
part in the negotiations. Michigan
may want an invitation and the Con
ference may wish Michigan to ask
for reinstatement These matters can
be smoothed out if gone about in the
