on Clubbing of His Young

Hth will never let go of him unUl he
'has fallen down absolutely With the
Btlck. His slashing drives at the right
places will win many games of ball
during a season.
' Second base will be one of the bus
iest places imaginable this spring uv
this man's town. It is generally con
sidered the one really weak spot in the
Griffmen's armor., Strengthening th's
one position may bring the American
League flag to the Capital and this last
Is GrlfTs own particular task he sets
Laporte, never the fastest man in the
world, is too slow to fit into Griffs
lightning Infield. Ray Morgan, green
and inexperienced &s he is, is as fast
as they make 'em. But some doubt Ray s
ability as a second baseman even while
lauding him as a shortstop or a third
baseman. He will have his chance thjs
' spring. If he fatu then, it will be his
own fault, not that of his manager, al3
mates, or the fans. Morgan is one of
the most popular players on the locnl
But no matter who becomes the team s
regular second baseman, Frank Laporte
Is too valuable a slugger to be released
until he has been superseded with the

GrlfTo plans calls foe his appearance In
more games in 1313 than in 1312, and
frequently It will be impossible for him
to come to bat.
There Are Others.
Of course, aside from Frank Laporte,
Griff will have other good hitters, but
they must yet prove their weight in the
.big show. Joe Connelly and Harry Wel
chonce have wielded the bludgeon to
good advantage In the bushes, but
major league pitching and major league
fielding may cut down their average
somewhat. However, both of these lads,
until they land regular berths will be
eligible .for this pinch-bitting job with

good slugger to go to bat in the pinches
If Danny Murphy is able to put his
weight on his weak knee. This veteran
Is one ot the most dangerous men In
the same when a hit means victory.
Indeed. Bob Groom has frequently told
the writer that he feared Danny Murphy
more than Ty Cobb or Frank Baker.
"Sea-XJpn" Charlie Hall and Olaf
Henriksen are two pinch-hitters with
the world's champion Red Sox. They
think nothing of poking out a bingle
that swings victory their way.
Matter of Slugging.
'Aside from second base, where a good
fielder -will stand the best chance of
holding down the berth, provided lie can
hit at all, the job with the Climbers
wfll In all probability go to the men
with the heaviest wag on tongues. If
Welchonce. Allen, Calvo. and Ccn
nelly can, hit In fast company as they
bave done In the bushes, Danny Moel
ler and Howard Shanks may sit on the
-bench a while before sliding back to
some slower company.
But hitting In the bushes is far dif
ferent .from hitting In the majors, and
that's whr one must not dismiss the
chances of Shankb and Moeller to make
good another season. Moeller has shown
himself one of the headiest batsmen
and base runners with the Climbers,
when In good condition. He should
trs-vol at a wonderful Dace this spring if
i,e can manage to have that weak
shoulder of his behave.
Shanks has no superior In major
league baseball today handling a ground
ball. -Although not very fart on the
bases, this young man can fly over
the dirt in the garden. He pays no at
tention to the other men in the game,
gets the ball, however hard it may be
to do that, and knows just what to do
with it from the jump. If lie could hit
around .300, Manager Griffith wouldn't
Hesitate a second about making him
' regular. The hitch comes right
For those outfield jobs the men mu-st
be hitters. It is more than probable
that Griff will experiment with several
men Jn the gardens before making his
final selection. Indeed, the fans may
sec Calvo, .Connelly. Welchonce. nnd
Allen filling In for tho others during
the spring games of the regular cam
paign. The jobs will go to the hitters.

Giants' Southpaw Who Says He Won't
Return to Game.
PITCHERS EVEN IF
Wiltse, Ames, and Crandall,
With Tesreau and Matty,
Will Still Be Able to Win.
NEW YORK, Jan, 2S. Even should
Marquard make good his threat to stay
out of baseball this season, the Giants
should be well fixed as far as pitchers
are concerned. There is hardly a doubt
that Tesreau will improve upon his last
year's record, and the ability of the big
fellow to do almost an unlimited
amount of work will make him the
backbone of,therstaft. Matty can always
be depended' upon to win his share and
more of the battles. Crandall, Wiltse
and Ames are the other veterans of the
staff and they are all twirlers above the
The Giants won 103 games last season.
This number of victories is practically
sure to win a pennant In any season. Of
these ninety-nine were won by six pitch
ers. Marquard won 26, Mathewson, 23;
Tesreau, 17; Crandall, 13; Ames, 11, and
Wiltse, 9. Subtracting Marquard's vic
tories, tne other veterans won 73 games.
From a closer look at the figures we
may judge what the Giants might be
expected to do minus the services of the
Rube. Marquard and Matty each pitch
ed in forty-three games, but Mathewson
completed twenty-seven games to the
Rube's twenty-two. Moreover, where
the opposing team made an average of
2.15 runs per game from the delivery of
Big Six, they secured an average of 2.5S
per game from the offerings of Mar
quard. Matty Won AIL
On one Western trip where the
Giants slumped badly, .Matty won
.practically all of the games that wero
wen and kept his club from utter
rout. In othei words, Mathewson and
not Marquard vas the most valuable
pitcher the Giants had last season.
Miserable support behind him was re
sponsible for at least a third of the
defeats with which he is charged.
In the ordinary course of events
Matty may be expected tp win twenty-five
games this year. Tesreau
got a late start last year lie was
only in thirty-six Komes and only
twirled twentv complete contests. L'd
Walsh of the White Sox appeared Id
sixty-two contests last season There
is no doubt that this number of bat
tles Is too great a strain on anv pitch
er, but Tesreau. who Is something
the same sort of a twirler. Is very apt
to get Into fifty games during the
coining season. He will probably
pitch at least thlrtv-five complete
games and should end the yar with
twenty-five or more victories.
Crandall Was III.
Crandall was 111 almost continually
last J ear, but this season with any sort
of luck he will probably win In the
tlclnlty of twenty games. Wiltse was
another pitcher who suffered from ill-
health. After getting oIT to a fine start,
he was ill and never fully recovered his
strength. This season Hooks should not
content himself with less than a dozen
ilctorlcs. Ames Is an uncertain pitcher.
but he, too. should win his dozen
games. If the five eterans of the team
lived up to this schedule, which Is of
course based on the circumstances and
performances of last jear, they wouL'l
nish the season with a total of nlncty
It appears almost inconceivable that
McGraw should not be able to secure at
least two fair twirlers out of such ma
terial as Demarcc, Hader. Kirby, Gou
lalt, Schupp, Ferryman, Smith and
Robertson. If these young twirler
among them can win nine games it
would bring the Giants' total of vic
tories up to their last j ear's figures
and win them the pennant. They would
naturally be stronger with Marquard,
but his loss Is by no means fatal to
their chances for the flag.

GIANTS FIXED FOR
By KIRK C. MILLER.
President C. R. Lee Scott, of the Bal
timore City Tenpin Association, will roll
the first ball down the alleys at the
Palace Bowling Alleys on the night of
Monday, Fehruary 10, thereby formally
opening the Seventh Annual Intercity
Tenpin Tournament of the Washington
City Tenpin" Association. This honor
was conferred upon Mr. Scott by the
executive committee of the local or
ganization in session last night
It Is expected that the , entire bow
ling contingent, of Baltimore will be
on hand on the opening night: the
Richmond bowlers to come later, and
the selection of Mr. Seott, to formally
open the tournament that night, meets
with the hearty approval of both Bal
timore and Washington associations.
Secretary Fields, of he Washington
association, returned today from Bal
timore, where he has been to complete
details attendant to the coming ten
pin tournament. While in Baltimore,
Fields learned that at least ten Class
A team will come to Washington- for
the big bowling classic and that the
majority of thehe team members will
be entered in the singles and doubles.
The-Brehms Brewry League, consist
ing of ten teams, will probabl come to
the National Capital on the second night
of the tournament. These are sep
arate and distinct from the ten teams
Extra impetus was given the inter
city tournament when Secretary Fields
received a letter from the Washington
Duckpin Association stating that In all
probability each duckpin league belong
ing to the local body will enter a star
team of duckpin rollers as tenpin teams.
It is the opinion of the promoters ot
the tournament that this action of the
duckpin rollers Is one of the .biggest
boosts that the tournament has re
ceived and a letter will be addressed
to the Duckpin Association accepting
their offer of teams.
Several matters pertaining to the run
ning off of the games In the tenpin
tournament were discussed at last
night's meeting. It was definitely de
cided to discontinue the use of the
loaded or Dodo ball, a letter having
been received from Secretary Lang
ford, of the American Bowling Con
gress, complimenting the Washington
tenpin rollers on their notion at a re
cent meeting, to discard the fake ball.
The schedule committee reported that
the five-man teams will roll In the
evenings, and that the singles and
doubles will occupy the alleys after
noons. The special tenpin and duckpin tour
nament at tlve headquarters of the
Washington Railway Relief Association
has come to a close, prizes for both
sets of games having been awarded
last night. George Herbut rolled the
highest game, 256. and E. H. Straub sec

Thorpe's Case Will .
- Be Tried on Tue.sday
NEW' YORK, Jan. 26. James E. Sul
livan, chairman of the national "regis
tration committee ot tho Amateur "Ath

Jim Thorpe, the Carlisle Indian, would
be given a hearing in this clty next
Tuesday In order to ascertain whether
or not he played with a professional
baseball team In 1909 and 1910.
Mr. Sullivan said that the records
show that a man named Thorpe played
In the Carolina League in 1909 and
1910, "but we have been unable to find
out if he was the Carlisle Indian," con
tinued Mr, Sullivan. "Glenn Warner,
coach at Carlisle, says Thorpe did not
play professional ball, and I have every
reason to believe what he says.
"If. however, it is proved that
Thorpe Is a profesional he "will be
compelled to return the prizes he won
at the Olympic games in Sweden. ,Thls
would place us In an embarrassing po
sition. We would have -to send the
trophies to Sweden and apologize for
having allowed Thorpe to compete, on
the American) team.
