LAST OF OLD GUARD
IS ABOUT THROUGH
"Cotton Top" Turner Not Playing
Terry Was Considered Fixture on
Cleveland Team for Fifteen Yeara
Has Had Brilliant Career
With the Indians.
Another fumllliir old face bus passed
from tho lil(,' league. Or should wi
say nu old familiar shock of cotton
lined hair? Tor we refer to old Terry
"Cotton Top" Turner, who for Ifi yours
was it fixture on the ('lowland Amor
lean league team. No more fiiinnu
crop of hair was worn In the big
leagues than the crop that adorned
Terry us liu dug them up In deep Klmrt
or raced up the third busy lltiu to
gobble up slow-hit grounders.
Turner, who has been given his un
conditional release, really Is tho hint
of tho old guard to no. Tho last few
years have seen the passage of tho
entire group of Blurs who shone so
brilliantly In tho late Ws and tho
enrly years of the present century
Wagner, LnJole, Wallace, Leach, Craw
ford, l'lank, Hvers, Homier, nnd now
It Is true that Turner was n consid
erably younger man than tho other
men referred to. Turner Is only thirty-seven.
Lajolo had been playing big
league ball seven years before Terry
won u regular berth with the old
Cleveland Naps In 100 J. Hut In the
average fan's mind Turner Is associ
ated with these older fellows, and fans
got to such u stage that last year they
were calling Terry "Old Orandpop."
It seemed us though Turner had been
with tho Cleveland tenin for u century.
As n mnttor of fact, Terry original
ly started his big league career with
the Pittsburgh Pirates In 1001. Hut
tho Pirates were champions In those
days, and Turner, then only nineteen,
had little chance to break Into the
game. Turner, at tho time, wn a first
baseman, as ho played first base for
flreonvlllo In tho Interstate league Id
in 1002 the Pirates released tho lit
tle fellow to Columbus In tho Ameri
can association. Ho played there two
years ami won fame us u third bnse
man. Cleveland needed no third base
men, us Hill Hradley, then In his prime,
was guarding third hase for tho team.
However, a placo was found for Terry
at short .between the famous sturs,
Hradley and Lajole, and It wasn't long
before Terry's Holding- was on u par
with that of this Illustrious pnlr.
Turner played shortstop for Cleve
land until 1010 when ho was shifted
over to third base, where ho continued
to play lino ball. In recent years
Turner has not been considered n
Cleveland legulnr, yet he got lit 71
games hiHt year and hit .-10.

WHY JOHN PAUL JONES j
WUN'I USt hASI BALL
Low McCurty tells an Inter
esting story of John Paul .Tones,
tho (Slant youngster now with
the Toronto club, who Is expect
ed to develop Into a major
league hurler of first rank with
a little more experience.
"This spring," says Mc Party,
"I tried to get .Tom to cut loose
with all the speed he had, for I
could see he was holding back,
but he wouldn't do It. One day
I asked him why ho persisted In
keeping under wraps ami he told
"'Once I was pitching against
tho best pal I have,' he said 'ami
I cut loose with a fast hall. My
control wasn't good and the ball
bit him in the hip. Tho Injury
laid him up for thieo months
and marked tho end of his base
ball career. Since then I'vo never
put all my speed on a ball.' "
Charrlty a Real Catcher.
Oharrlty this .smsou Is a vastly Im
proved catcher. lie holds tho hurlcrs
up In gol style and Is throwing llko
an Archer or a King. Kddlo doesn't
boom to hit the ball as. hard or often
playing regularly, however.
CATCHER RAY SCHALK IS GIVEN LOT OF
CREDIT FOR EXCELLENT SHOWING OF SOX
Chicago baseball commentators nre giving u lot of the credit for tho
present line showing of the White Sox to liny Hchalk. Naturally, being used
to u high-class brand of haekstopplng from Hay, one doesn't hear so much
about him as when bo was breaking In as a new sensation, but (ioortre Hob
bins, In Chlcngo News, declares he Is catching at the "top of his career," and
results seem to Indicate It.
Tho White Sox pltrhors nre going grandly, nnd every one knows the
secret of n pitcher's success lies In good bundling from the receiving end.
S!!!!,k 'B.cn,flj!nR Pn'ctlcnlly every game bis team plays, hitting well
over .300 and seem to Have lost none of his speed nnd dash.

VETERANS TELL SOME
REAL LIVE STORIES
How Kid Glcason Used to Be Cut
Up With Spikes.
Davy Jones, Then With Chlcngo Cubs,
Tried to Put Peppery Manager of
Chicago White Sox Out of
Business, but Failed.
Them was some great fanning ut the
baseball meetings In New York. One
bunch of yarn spinners were talking
about how Kid Oleason used to be cut
up with the spikes of base runners be
cause be refused to give uny ground
to them nt second base and the Kid
was an Interested listener to bis own
"Yes," he put In, "sometimes they did
slash mo up, and sometimes they
didn't. I remember once when Davy
Jones wus with the Cubs. Karly In
the game bo tried to steal and I tagged
him pretty roughly. He warned mo
that the next time be got on ho wns
coming down and was going to cut
me down. Sure enough he got on
again, but as we had the Cubs beaten,
S to 1, I tipped Kllng on to muko -i
high throw. Down came Davy with
one leg swinging high so as to spike
me. Of course, I paid no attention to
the ball, which went to center Held.
All I did was to grab that leg, give it
u twist and cause Davy to plow up
the Infield with his face. When Daw
Dually escaped there was no skin left
on his nose, and what made hltu even
madder was that the ball was thrown
back to me In time to put him out
before ho got back on tho bag."
"That reminds me of a game," re
marked Johnny ""vers, "In which, with
Single on third and Schulte on tlrst
uud only one out, Schulte was told to
go Into second standing up If the hall
was hit on the ground, Cliauce not
wanting u double play to prevent
Single from scoring. Schulte, o(
course, obeyed onb-rs, and when the
shortstop, after taking the toss from
the second baseman, went to wheel the
ball to tlrst he hit Schulte between the
"Down went Schulte us If hit with
a hammer. He was up In less than n
minute, ami turning toward the grand
stund, yelled majestically: 'They told
mo to stund up uud then they knock
"And the worst of It was that Single
forgot all about scoring, but when lie
wns half way home ho cut ucross tf
second to see If Schulte was hurt."
BERT NIEH0FF IS IMPROVING
Former New York Giant. Now With
Seattle Club, Hopes to Return
to Major League.
Hert Nlchoff may not be destined tr
remain In the minor leagues for so
very long. Nlelioff, who Is now play
ing with the Seattle club of the l'a
cltle Coast league, is driving the bull
harder and farther than ever before
The old knee, which was tho direct re
sult of Hert's sale by Manager McOraw
of tho New York Giants, seems to have
mended and the Denver boy Is as .pry
and fast as ever.
When NloholV was sent from the At
lantic coast to the Pacllle coast lie ih
dared he would be back In Ihe big
show before the miisoii was over, ami
is seems ery likely' now he will make
good on his declaration. Ills many
friends are with him, pulling for tin
return of the hind-luck Inllelder.

OFFER TURNED DOWN
Bid of $12,500 for Pitcher Leon
ard Is Refused.
Manager Miller Hugglns Turns Former
Boston Red Sox Hurler Over to
Tigers for $2,G0O Less Than
Jim Dunn Offered.
Can you Imagine u ball club dispos
ing of a pitcher for S'JiOO less than
the highest Mil? Well, such u thing
probably wouldn't happen In uny busi
ness other than baseball, but such is
the cum' of "Dutch" Leonard. Presi
dent Dunn of Cleveland wanted the
services of "Dutch" Leonard for the
Indians. When it became known that
New York was willing lo dispose of
Leonard the Cleveland mngnnto at onco
started to angle for the services of the
star Foutbpaw. Dunn realizes that the
one uud onlj weak spot on his bnll club
Is his pitching stuff. It has been sold
that a pennant-wliinlng dim must liuvo
a crack southpaw. Working on thnt
theory, Dunn sot out to do business
with the New York club.
Now, It so happens that Miller Hug
glns or the New York Yankees Is
hopeful of winning an American
league pennant for Uotham this year.
Hugglns Is a wise old owl and full
well realizes that Cleveland nnd Chi
cago loom up us tlie strongest con
tenders, with the Hoston lied Sox us
still u possibility, despite the bnd
start of Unit club. No one knew nny
better than Hugglns what the coming
of Leonard would do for tho Cleve
land club. It would linvu Just about
made Cleveland the one best bet In
tho American league. Hugglns real
ized that he could not afford to so
strengthen tho Cleveland club nnd
thereby Jeopardize to n great extent
the chances of his team.
It Is u matter of record that Jim
Dunn was willing to pay 12,000 for
tho services of Leonard. Ho know
thnt "Dutch" would get him back
'Si Ay..i, r .vwt,si.
several times that amount at tho guto
if he made the Indians a stronger pen
nant contender, If not u winner.
Yet Frank Navln of tho Detroit club
bought Leonard for $10,000, nn even
2,C00 less than Cleveland wus willing
to pay. The Detiolt club at tho time
the deal was made was going poorly.
Thu pitching stun of the Tigers was In
far worse shape than that of tho In
dians. Now York realized It could sell
Leonard to Detroit, strengthening that
team, yet In no way lessen tho chances
of the New York club to win. A mere
mutter of $1!,500 in such u cuso meant
nothing to the millionaire owners of
Such Is tho talo of why Lconnrd
was lost to Jim Dunn, even though ho
was willing to raise tho unto of Frank
