Hughey Jennings, manager of tHe De

the world -with the New York Giants
and the Chicago White Sox next win
ter and, while he isn't promising at
all, or anything like that, it would Tiot
be surprising to have him go out on
the coaching lines for both teams in
the shadow of the Pyramids, thus es
tablishing baseball records to endure for
ail time. The clarion cry of "Ee-yah"
will then go down the ages in company
with the sound of battle amonc the
"res, I'm planning to go around the
world with the two teams," Jennings
told the writer today. "Perhaps I'll

Making Big Hit.
Jennings is making a big hit every- j
wnere in Ms stage stunt and figures
that his income this winter will be ail
velvet, going far toward paying the ex
penses of the round-the-world jaunt
text year. And maybe the fans in this
country won't follow his coaching ca
leer on strange fields, yet maybe.
The Tiger leader has nothing new o
Fay concerning the prospects for th
season. As told In The Times or a few
weeks past, he doesn't figure the Climb
ers in the struggle next summer. In
deed, he believes they'll have to hustle
to lam. as high as third. His optimism

Amateurs to Follow
Big League Styles
Should the legislation proposed bv the
rules committee appointed b the ama
teur baseball commission be adopted
by tl e arbitration board at its next
meeting, the sport In the District will
be likened still further to the govern
ment of the national gam in ho far as
it proposes to set up a commission of
three men empowered to take final
action In all cases of amateur ball.
This was the idea of the rules commit
tee which met hist night at the offices
of Clark Griffith to rvi3' the playing
code andv constitution for th approval
of the arbitration board composed of
members of the amateur onimlsslon
and the presidents of the different
This proposed change has grown out
of a lack of harmony within the com
mission as it existed last season. Petty
squabblcs frequently heard at meet
ings of the commission, v ere directly
the' result of league presidents pro
tecting their own interests or trying
to further (hem.
The rules an now proposed will elimi
nate the vote of presidents, but will
not do away with their volee absolutely
The president, vice president, and ircas
uier who would constitute the new
body, would be elected l them at the
beginning f each plallig iar, and
would hae, at any lime, the light t
submit testimony to the governing
board Further tiian that they would
have no aulhorit.
At first it was suggetcd that a board
of fhe or seven men constitute the
commission, but after debatlinr the
point and acting upon the advice of
Manager Griffith, this number was de
clared too many. The fert-cr the mem
bers there were to transact business
the more effective and Impartial would
be its imposition.
Tli-" rfanges were suggested bv S

VACATION WITH HIS
WIFE I ALASKA
Browns' Shortstop- .WHI Leave
Home Early, in Time to Re
port for Training.
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 4. When the winter
league fans, tired of talking over the
world's series, the performances of
stars of the past season and other
topics of the baseball world, can some
times find In the discussion of the
many wa?a In -which the various dia
mond satellites spend ihelr winters.
It would not appear at air out of
place If it was announced that Mika
Balentl. who is a shortstop and who
was drafted by the Browns last fall
front Chattanooga, was spending the
summer with his smalt family and his
wife's relatives. jBut the peculiar sur
roundings of Balenti's vacation makes
It. most Interesting to the fans around
Pnlenti, a graduate of Carlisle Indian
School, Is wintering with his wife's
family in Alaska. From all accounts
he Is enjoyinc a thorough vacation of
outdoor sport, hunting, fishing, tramp
ing In Alaskan snow-drifts being th
pastimes open to Mike with his Indian
relations In thenorth. The vacation is
the most enjoyable he ever spent, ac
cording to a recent communication.
In order to report on time for the
Browns" training season. Balentl will
have to make an earlier start than tho
rest of his teammates for the means of
transportation In Alaska during the
winter season are very slow.
To Play Football
Raymond G. Urch, a graduate of
Michigan College, now teaching English
In Noboek Middle School, Noboek,
Miyazaki Ken, Japan, has plans now
under way to Introduce football in Ja
pan. How the game will be received
Is, of course, a question, but If the way
the Japs took to baseball can be taken
as a criterion, the great college sport
will, soon be on a tirm footing.
Urch recently wrote to some of his
friends who are still in college to obtain
for him a complete football outfit, and
forward it to him at once. Knowing the
adaptability of the Japanese, Urch In
tends to use tlie outfit merely as a pat
tern, and It Is possible that a new In
dustry mav develop In Japan.
He broached the plan of trying out
football to the school authorities, and It
met with almost Instant approval. Con
sidering their known quicknes and agil
ity the new game seems especially de
vised for Japs, ana it vvould not be at
all surprising before long to see a team
from one of their colleges touring this
country in the same manner that some
of their ba.cball teams have done.
