Ted Sullivan, one of the ever-to-be
remembered figures of the national
pastime, and who piloted the St. Louis
Browns to a pennant back In the '80s,
does not think the modern playtrs com
pare with those of his time.
"I notice," said the veteran Ted,
"there la really one thing that appears
to bo a lost art In the game nowadays,
und that Is catching. Now, don't think
I am trying to run the playing of these
modern and progressive days of tho
pastime down. No, Indeed, not for a
long shot, for I think without a doubt
-tho Improvements made since I was
handling the plovers havo put the game J
away ahead of what It was in the old)

tho Idea that the old fellows couldn't

me a catcher today who could tag a
runner with the ease and grace of Mike
Kelly, and yet ho didn't go out and
stand In the runner's way like the fel
lows do nowadays. No, not a bit of It.
"It's really a wonder that there are
not more fellows hurt than there are
In these days. Yes, I often ponder over
this situation, and can only come to one
conclusion, and that It, the umpires fall
to do their duty when they actually see
a catcher or second or third baseman
block a runner when he Is coming on
the dead run and call the runner out
because he failed to touch the bag,
wlfn. In reality, he was unlawfully In
"Now, anv one can see this ain't
right, but still In every game In the
season, and every day and sometimes
almost every Inning, the rule of un
lawful Interference Is broken right be

the sufferer Instead of the man who

If an automobile were to be given to
the International League pitcher who
came out of the 1912 campaign with tho
most notable strike-out record. It would
go without question to McTtgue, who
was taken by Montreal from Buffalo
early In the season. The Judges might
give the records of Shaw key, of Balti
more, and Lafltte, of Providence, a sec
ond look, but they would have to award
the wagon to the Montreal left-hander.
McTlguo did some remarkable fan

tied the husky St. John's College eleven
cf Annapolis, at football, 0-6, In a
drawn-out contest marked by weak of
fense and defense, relatively speaking,
on both sides. The hot weather caused
many prostrations of players, and with
frequent penalties taxed the spectators'
Interest, although Goldstein and Dunn,
carrying the ball, and the effective work
of Clnrk, Wilson and Mellon for St.
John's, attracted close attention. For
Dickinson. Brown. Potts, MacGregor
and Schaef also starred.
