Cub Shortstop Displeased Because 'Club Owner Blocks
Trade Whereby He Might Have Become Manager
of Cincinnati Reds.
CHICAGO. Nov. 6. Now Joe Tinker,
veteran shortstop of tlie Cubs, Is on
the warpath, slamming Charlie Murpliv
right and left for blocking the deal to
make Tinker manager of the Cincin
"When Murphy Insists on getting
Marsans, lloblltzell, and Hobbv Hescli
er from the. Iteda ,anl Mike Doolan
from the Phillies' in exchange for mo,
he la evidently trying to queer tho
deal," said Tinker today. "Tho matter
with Murphr Is that he has no back
bone. He Is afraid to let me go for
fear of tho storm of criticism from the
fans which Is certain to follow, unless
the Cubs show better ball than they
"Anyway, I'm through with the Cubs,
trade or no trade. I've told Murphy
that. If he refuses to let me go to
Cincinnati. I shall simply take one of
the uutsldo propositions before mo and
ault the diamond, I have long wanted
to try mv hand at managing a big
league team. That's the only reason
I'm trying so hard to go to Cincinnati.
If Murphy won't trado.me, he'll lose
Just so much, for I shall never play a
game of ball under Johnny Evers."
Tinker believes that Murohv Is not
-sincere In his dealings with him and
doesn't hesitate to Bay so. no claims
that when he had an opportunity to go
to Cincinnati last year. Murphy blocked
the deal. Now the veteran shortstop
will not plav for Murphy again under
any circumstances. .
West Bide fans general sympathize
with Tinker. Thev think his long years
of excellent service to the Cubs rutltlo
him to his release to take a lucrative
position In Cincinnati. lie has hosts of
friends here who do not hesitate to ex-
I press their hostility to Murphv for his
shabby treatment oi linker.

Have real "kick."
Ball players have a real "kick" com
ing to them concerning training tilps.
They frequently spend two months pre
paring for the season, receiving no
compensation. Their expenses are paid,
but have you ever been able to travel
and live In hotels without shelling out
constantly? Houbtlces some arrange
ment will be made In the near future
regarding this phase of big league base
ball. Tinker Is unluckv.
Joe Tinker Is unlucky In being tied
up with the Chicago Cubs. Almost any
other magnate but "Chattering Charlie"
Murphy would listen to reason and give
this veteran a chance to better him
self. However, Murphy has been kid
ding Tinker, that's all, and It looks
as If the player would lose out In the
end. Yes, he's certainly unlucky.

The big leagues plan to open their sea

ball be enjoyed before the last of April
and the doubleheaders will begin to
pile up at once.

basketball could thrive as well as foot

Eastern's win over Business proved
pretty conclusively that It Is possible for

are many who go on the assumption

Presidential Threesome should keep posted from ono
end of the Whito House to the other viz: "Slow Back"
"Keep Your Eye on the Ball" "Don't Press" and
again "Never Up Never In." This latter proved to be
ono of Mr. Taft's chief faults. He was never qulto up
and always left himself a putt which he couldn't quite
Speaking of Col. Fogel
"Suppose," states an exchange, "that President
Lynch can show Fogel made the charges credited to
him, what can the National League do about It7
.Tiiat ono of three things: Either apply the Brlckley
to Colonel Fogel and drop-kick him out of tho game; or,
applying a masB formation, torce an upuiogy wuu u
curb attached against loose conversation; or, still fur
ther, do nothing and thereby confess that Mr. Fogel was
fairly close to the truth.
It Is stated that the football rules committee will
soon call another meeting to adopt a neutral zone for
Mr. Brlckley and restrict Thorpe's end runs to 40 yards
a' dash. The voting will, be unanimous beyond Cam
bridge and Carlisle.
When the Indian meets the Army we are among
those willing to arise and give three uproarious cheers
that we are not among those to be tackled or roogh

and our uniformed constabulary have yet to be depicted
In 'the act of embracing and osculating before cheering
throngs of the populace.

for the coming season.
Herldlnl and 'Crowe were the only men
left of last year's lnterscholastlc cham
pionship aggregation, and last spring
Crowe, a regular, -as elected to lead
the 1915-1913 squad. This year, however,
he failed to matriculate at the Hilltop
school, and, accordingly, Berldtnl, al
though only a substitute last winter,
was chosen to succeed him.

experience, and failed to make the team
only because the Prep squad boasted of
such stellar performers as Capt Hilly
Martin, Ed Marum, Oswald Dalley,
Herbert Lane, and Ed Crowe. In pre
liminary practice this year he haa been
showing his old-time form, and there Is
every reason to believe that he will
make a successful lead, as he also
combines ability with good field general

row, as Coach Joyce Issued the call for
candidates today, and a good squad of
experienced men Is expected to report.
