some time ago, when Pres. Johnson
of the American league was giving
out belligerent statements regarding
Henry, the matter is left in the hands
of the Washington club.
Johnson in New York says he
never gave out a statement that
Henry would be run out of baseball.
Ban was quoted in local papers as in
veighing against the catcher.
The American league has severed
relations with the fraternity, which
makes little difference in baseball, as
there was no chance for a strike at
any stage of the proceedings. So far
as- the organized majors are con
cerned, there is no organization of
In a patriotic vein, the American
magnates adopted a resolution de
claring for military drill of ballplay
ers, and the noble athletes will get
one hour of civilian drill each day of
the spring training season. They
will march to and from the ball parks
in soldierly array. Just what the drill
at the parks is to consist of is some
thing yet to be determined.
For the sake of the Cub athletes
it is to be hoped the National league
does not follow the lead of the Amer
ican. Cub players are looking for
ward to trips from hotel to ball park
in some of Mr. Wrigley's finely uphol
stered motor cars and the footwork
would be a great blow to them.
Doc Buckner will probably be color
guard of the Sox team.
President Weeghman of the Cubs
failed to put over any big deal in
New York and is coming back disap
pointed. He wanted Hornsby or
Groh, accoroing to New York ad
vices. Hornsby is too valuable to be
disposed of by the Card's, and it is
doubtful if Groh would be of much
permanent assistance to the North
There is a growing hunch that
Weeghman can afford to stand pat
on his present infield combination
and allow Fred Mitchell a trial with
t"he array now gathered. Deal should
be a National league star, and Wort-1
man is by no means a weak cog at
short. He may not hit heftily, but
only two shortstops in the big league
hit better thai! .235 in 1916.
Because of a mix-up between box
ing promoters there will be no fight
between Les Darcy and Mike Gibbons
in Milwaukee April 10. Tom Andrews
has a telegraphic acceptance from
Darcy to meet Jeff Smith some time
in March, and Frank Mulkern would
not care to take a chance on public
ity for a Gibbons-Darcy affair with
the possibility always ahead that
Smith would sink the Australian.
Darcy doesn't like the go with Gibbons-
anyhow, as dispatches from
New York side yesterday.
Jimmy Blouin and Tony Karlicek
wound up their 40-game match at
Hovorka's last night, Blouin winning
by 316 pins for the series.
Chick Harley, Ohio State football
star, will compete with the Buckeyes
in a dual m,eet against University of
Chicago at Bartlett gym tonight
Harley is entered in the sprints.
Captf Underhill of the Northwest
ern basketball team was declared in
eligible because of study conditions
on the eve of the Purple's meeting
with Ohio State in Patten gym to
night. Welker Cochran went out ahead of
George Sutton in their 18-2 billiard
match at Mussey's and now leads,
1,600 to 1,327. Cochran scored 419
to 127 for Sutton last night, going
out in 13 innings.
