Playing Dates Adopted By
League Give Griffmen Many
Ballade of the Game's Break
THIRTY CANDIDATES IKIYIAT MAY ENTER
"It's all news. to me this talk about
Boc White arranging to hire my ball
ark for Sunday ball," announced Man
ager Griffith today. "If there's going
to be any Sunday ball played at my
park, I'm going to play it. That's all
bunk about Doc White using my park."
The "Old Fox" is a strong adherent
of the Sunday baseball proposition and,
while he isn't rushing Into a scheme
for booming it here, he is perfectly
willing to accede to the -wishes of the
public, if it wants Sunday baseball.
"I'd be a fool to let White or any
body else try to play Sunday ball here
on tfie Florida avenue park," continued
Griff, "when I have a major league
team loafing around the Ebbltt House
waiting for & chance to face my kids.
He never made any arrangement with
me. so his orders to join tne white
Sox won't interfere with his plans so
"I think Sunday baseball is coming in
the East, just as it did In the West.
The Pennsylvania legislature is now
considering a resolution to allow it in
mat state, wnen tne game was sug
gested in Cleveland, there" was a howl
from all sides, but finally the people
came through with a monster petition
demanding Sunday baseball, and it went
wiw a rusn. ow everyooay in Cleve
land is glad the team plays There on
Sundays, and no complaints are heard.
Never Again for Him.
"John Henry is never again going
back under the knife," says Manager
Griffith. "Yeu won't have to watch his
fever bulletin any more. Tor the big
fellow is improving rapidly, and will be
on the job the moment the campaign
opens. I am tickled to death at his
speedy recovery, for I worried some
when I found he had to go back to the
hospital for treatment. But he's alt
rieht now. and with the rest between
now and March 5 he'll be on the ,job
Manager Griffith is likely to sched
ule six exhibition games for his team
during the 1913 season. He believes
in keeping his noble young athletes
busy every day, once the bell Tings,
and the schedule as outlined by the
league, allows him to pick up Ihe loose
change on six different occasions.
On May 2Vthe Climbers will play in
Cie eland. Then they leave for Phila
delphia, opening a scries on the 23th,
thus giving the Climbers a chance to
exhibit themselves in the bushes on
the 24th. It is but a ntsht's ride be
tween Cleveland and Phllly, and the
jump can easily be made.
An exhibition game will very likely
De played at Back River Park, Balti
more, on Sunday. June 29. The Climb
ers are not due to play in Boston un
til the next day and can easily catch
the train out of Baltimore for the Hub.
As Jack Dunn is always anxious to
bill exhibition games with the Climb
ers on Sundays, Griff will have little
trouble doing so.
The Griffmen will close a series in
Chicago July 23. and are not due at
home until the 26th, when the St. Louis
Browns Jvlll drift into town for a num
ber of beatings. At least one exhibi
tion game will probably be played on
One More Game.
One more game may be played some-'
where near by on September 3, for the
Climbers close a series In Philadelphia
the day before and open one here on
On September 23 the Browns close a
series here, and then the Climbers are
due in New York on the 25th, thus
ghing the Griffmen a chance to appear
.n another money-grabbing battle some
where. Last vear Griff billed a game In
Brooklyn one Sunday, but it was called
off at the last moment. This season he
will have another opportunity on Sun
day. .September 35,

Chance had planned to quit the game, but once back in harness the
Call of the Wild came with the same old peal. They retire as their uni
forms drop off or their arms shrivel up from service.
No wonder the P. L. decided upon an earlier start. An epidemic of
Johnson, Wood, Bender, and Coombs through the opening month is
about as keen incentive for haste in reaching the P. of C stage as scor
ing we know.
The P. L. has bumped into Walsh, Bender, and Coombs before, but the
delicate pleasure of an introduction to J. Wood and W. Johnson will not
take place until April.
In Which We Confess to a Daze.
The inside ethics of this "amateur" round-up, we confess has us jump
ing side ways. For example Thorpe plays professional ball and there
fore is a professional from hoof to roof, a professional on the track as
well as the diamond. Tet one of our crack amateur golf players is John
Montgomery Ward, who must have received something of a stipend for
captaining the Giants In two pennant years. And our amateur racquet
champion is Percy Haughton, who has been picking up from $8,000 to
$10,000 as Harvard's toach. Hans Wagner and Frank Baker coufd battle
for the amateur golf championship this next fall if they could play well
enough to get that far along. The angle at least, is quite acute. If the
same plan carried straight through we know of a number of golfers we
have turned into pros, by slipping them coin for keeping straight down
the course while we were off in the rough.
George Stovall startled the universe last year by blasting the Browns
out of last place It was a notable achievement in view of the fact that all
things 'are what they are by comparison. In the same way any loud
noises heard in the vicinity of Boston next summer will indicate that
George Stallings is in the act of lighting the fuse attached to 'the gun
cotton placed under the Braves- Stallings is a rare type to handle -a tail
end situation. The subdued spirit which was prevalent in the .Brave
camp- last summer will either vanish or a set of earnest athletes will show
up with their ears bitten off. This, being a free country, they can take
their choicer "
The only thing the Braves kicked at last summer was extra session
games. They esteemed it considerable more bliss, to be beaten in nine
innings than toppled in eleve'n. Stallings is a gentle enough loser to
make them keen to play all night beforeIosing, rather than become en
meshed in the oratory he will have waiting in the wake of defeat.
The Heavyweight Tangle.
In regard to the heavyweight situation we seenrto be planted halfway
between a Jack-Johnson, who is what he is, and a McCarty whose idea pt re
taining the title is running away from any form of trouble. McCarty gave
promise of being a regular guy, but after his recent backdown from Wells it
isn't hard to place his habitat
The only way we can see out of the situation is to wipe the slate clean
back to September, 1892, and let John-L. resume where he left off. The
Boston Tub may not be quite as shifty on his feet as the present day crop,
but he carries a heart where two-thirds of the- others wear a mixture of
putty and cheese. No wonder the populace went sick when the old boy
fell. .There must have been a premonition of the crop to follow.
" Only lamp the gap Sullivan, Corbett, Fitzsimmons, Jeffries Hart,
Burns, Johnson, and McCarty. The outposts of a Siberian froniter are
jammed together compared to this frame
Johnson, Wood, Mathewson, Coombs, Hendrix, and Tesreau all for the
big type of spring, andithen again there is Bedlent. If you don't, remem
ber him, ask the Giants.

Selection of White
Popular at Western
The selection of Dave White, former
vni-sitv football player at Georgetown.
as coach of the Western High School
fnr the. eomlnir season, was popularly
received at the west end school yester
day .when the announcement was made
by Captain Howard. 'White has been
under conslderatlonA for some weeks
and an agreement between him and the
school authorities was reached yester
day. Two Games Carded.
Two basketball games are cheduled
to be played at the Y. M. C. A. gymna

and National Guard quint will line-up
in the first game while the Bull

BOB THAYER'S SPORTING GOSSIP
EVERY KNOCK IS A BOOST:
Henry is happy.
To see the smile on John Henry's face
Is enough to drive away the blues. The
big catcher is sure that he will be ln the
line-up this season,' his knee improving
rapidly under the skilled treatment at
h fienreetnwn University Hospital. If
that's the case, we should worry.
That game tonights
wrestling In one house and middle
weight grappling ln another should
please all fans this season.
That basketball game tonight between
C. IT. and Virginia should be a whlzzer.
The Brooklanders have done great work
all season, while the Charlottesville, con
tlgnet has held its own with all comers.
It is unfortunate that the seating ca
pacity is so small at the armory, fpr the
fans would fill a much larger place
when these two teams get together.
Hughes a coach. .
Tom Hughes threatens to assist Joe
Engel as coach of the Business High
School team. Come to think of it,
Hughes ought to make a good coach
for a college team. No big leaguer In
the game has more brains In his chosen
line than this same chap. It wdn't hurt
the Business lads to have him instruct
them, that's a cinch.
Mel Sheppard, hero of the 1S06 Olym
pic games In England. Is coming to
compete in the George Washington
meet, and doubtless there will be a
large amount of Interest in his event
because of him. Though going back
a little, this veteran of the track Is a
picture of action and will make all
opponents travel to beat him to the
tape. This Is a tcn-strlke for the
George Washington management.
Luther McCarty, after beating about
the bush a while, is now yiUIng to meet
Bombardier Wells. The Englishman,
clever as he is, may find himself up
against too much Jn .the courage of the

candidates. Cox and Taggart are again
available, while Mess seems, at this

Fleming, a letter man, should also make
