Seven Candidates for Climbers
Get Busy at Y. M. C. A. Gym
Under Eyes of Manager.
Tom Drohan. the Kewanee curler,
expected by most critics of pitching to
have the best chance of all the young
sters -with the Climbers to make good
this spring, will not report here -until
next week. He wired Manager Griffith
today that his mother's illness would
necessitate his remaining by her side
In Kewanee for a few more days. The
"Old fox" wired in reply that he should '
stay with her until she Is out of dan
ger. The twirler should be here by
Five young pitchers and two catchers
got down to work today at the T. M.
C A., and Manager Griffith was de
lighted with conditions. Nothing but
gentle tossing was indulged In. just
enough to loosen up the arm and shoul
der muscles. This will be continued
until the squad leaves for Charlottes
ville a week from Sunday.
Robert Austin, the long-legged fresh
man twirler from Wesleyan College,
Mlddletown, Conn., was the last to ar
rive in town today, going at once to
the T. M. C. A. for a workout. He is
a well built lad and looked In good phy
How They Worked.
The five pitchers in action were Joe
Engel. the Climbers' "milk bottle baby;'
Carroll Barton, the star fllnger of the
Fepco cam. District champions; Vic
tor Bickers, a towering youth from Buf
falo, N. Y., Independent teams; Elilott
Dent, with the Newark International
League team last year, and Austin, a
southpaw from New England; "Rlppy"

Manager Griffith was on hand, keep
ing an agle eye on the youngsters.
Mlque Martin, the safe and sane trainer
of the Climbers, was also there, giving
each of the athletes a real rubdown at
the close of the first davs workout.
Chick Gandil. the clouting first sacker
of the Climbers, was another spectator,
greatly enjoying a kidding match with
Al Williams. Gandil wants to Join the
squad, but Manager Griffith will not
listen to this for a minute.
Kahoe Takes a Look.
Mike Kahoe, prize scout, dropped in to
take a look at the youngsters at work.
He will be on hand each day till the
team leaves for Charlottesville. About
twenty others, mostly members of the
T. M. C A., watched the big league
candidates working out.
Nothing strenuous will be done this
week or next. The pitchers will merely
warm up, going through the motions of
pitching, but not using any speed. The
Idea of this preliminary work Is slroply
to strengthen the arms, preparing the
lads for the more active work in the
open air on Lambeth Field. One hour
a day will be the program till March 1.

was victorious over Swarthmoro here
last night In one of the best played
and most spectacular basketball game
of the season. It ended 39 to 24, after
each team had enjoyed a lead at sev
eral times during the encounter. Both
teams displayed equal strength In the
opening round and only by a spurt to
ward the end of the period did Lehigh
manage to gain nn advantage.
The ultimate winner lead throughout
the greater part of the second half, al
though Swarthmore made a number of
beautiful rallies. No player seen here
this year has given a better demonstra
tion of goal shooting from free throws
than Muthart, the Lehigh center. His
work In this respect was the most bril

FIGURE WHITE SOX
Effective Pitching Makes Jimmy Callahan's Outfit Worthy of
Consideration Chicag Has Much Good Twirl
).x, ing Material.
A team with great potentialities for
success is the Chicago White Sox, yet
Tew critics think they will finish in
the first division. If pitching alone
would land the flag, the. White 8ox
might be considered, for Jimmy Calla
han should have excellent twirling ma
terial backed up by two wonderful
young backstops In "Red" Kuhn and
Ray Schalk. Nevertheless, the Sox are
being doped for the second division Ty
In the opinion of the writer, the Chi
cago club should be strong at the start
of the campaign, even as they were
last season, and hold their own with
all-comers until well after the Fourth
of July. Indeed, they ha'o an excel
lent chance of coming in as high as
fourth or even third in the 1913 scramble
for the gonfalon.
It Is only natural to think of "Bis
Ed" Walsh when one thinks of the
White Sox. He looms above most of
the pitchers in th land as the "Big
Reel," the greatest "Iron man" of them
all, ever ready to do his Bhare of the
work and ever ready to rush to the
aid of tottering teammates. But there
are others. Jimmy Callahan should,
have great success with his pitching
staff this season and this will go a
long distance In the battle for the su
Five Good Men.
Five good pitchers may be numbered
In Walsh. Jim Scott, Frank Lange, Joe
Benz, and Eddie CIcotte. Scott Is now
preparing for tho coming season and
promises to be in excellent condition
by tho time the bell rlpgs. This big fel
low Is an effective twirler when in
shape, which he was not last year, and
should win many games for his club
this year. Lango came around well
enough last season to warrant Callahan
In banking on him this season. Benz
pitched fine ball for a youngster, while
Clocotte took a new lease of life when
he changed the color of his sox.
With most clubs this season the new
material for the box Is taking up much
attention, but the White Sox have such
good men In the regulars that this
amounts to little. However, Callahan
is taking half a dozen kfds to California
In Uie hopes of finding good stuff for
the mound, perhaps feeling that this
may come In handy, but tho regulars
will be there doing the work when the
The Climbers are touted as possessing
the best trio of backstops, but the
White Sox have another corking good
trio In Ray Schalk, "Red" Kuhn, and
BUI Sullivan. The first two can alter
nate day after day and play first class
ball till Injury hits them. Billy Sullivan
provides the brains for the young pitch
ers, and, though a veteran, can still
fling the pill to the midway with most
of them. All In all the battery men
with the Whlt sox put the team in the
Same Old Infield.
Though several youngsters will be
taken to the Coast to try for infield
berths. It is doubtful if any of them
manage to break into that charmed
quartet, consisting of Borton, the clout
ing first sacker: Morris Rath, the live
wire second baseman; "Buck" Weaver,
tho strong-armed shortstop, and Rolla
Zelder, the gargoyle third baseman.
Joe Berger is being applauded for his
winter league ability In the shortflcld,
but he will have to travel to beat out
in the outfield "Chick" Matt ck Is the
.only one certain of his place. This
youngster piayea sterling uuu msi year,
well earning the right to hold down
that middle garden. No other player
now in sight seems able to beat him
out of Ills Job.
Left field and right field, though, are
open to competition. Jimmy Callahan,
Harry Lord, and Davey Jones, the for
mer Detroit Tiger, are all left fielders,
while Ping Bodle, tho Frisco banana
merchant, and John Collins can play
right field. There Is no telling Just
what men will finally mako these
places. One or two youngsters from
the bushes will also be In the scram
ble, but their chances are slight.
The White Sox go to California In a
special train, but they will have to
keep ahead of such crack outfits as the
Red Sox, Climbers, and Athletics,
when once the season gets under way.
Their pitchers will make this an even
thing, by the way, and Callahan may
