In defeating Princeton, Georgetown

had been expressed as to the slncerety
and constancy with which the Blue and

Although seventeen goals from fouls

Better co-operation among the men of

Princeton seemed to be slightly at a

many close goals on that account.

HARD TO HANDLE
His Desire to Make an Impression on the Manager or Coach-
Often Causes Him
Now that the major league baseball
teams are at work down South much
is read by the fans regarding the show
ing made by the young players as field'
ers. batsmen and base runners. The
lads who hit a straight ball over the
fence for a 'home run or -who pull down
a fly ball after a hard run will get their
names in the headlines.
The plays look good, and as no one
can tell whether the joungsters could
do the same things In championship
games they are given full credit by tiie
war correspondents for thetr feats.
Little, though, will be heard for a
time about another class of players.
These men axe the young twlrlers who
have been gathered from schools, col
leges, minor leagues and town lots.
While the lnflelders and outfielders will
be speeding up their playes In the hope
of catching the eyes of their manager,
the juvenile twlrlers will be "under
They are just as anxious to "cut
loose as the candidates for other places
on the team, but the veteran catchers
who re looking aft'r their welfare will

His ambition to strike out some star

so keen that he will suddenly cut looe

Such tactics aiwuye arouse the Ire

sharp call-down usually follows.

usually so keen among the Juveniles
that they cannot help cutting Ioohc.

One year the Athletics took south a
very promising left-hander. He had
been much sought after by other clubs

A jouth who could have Kllroy give

self as lucky as if he were to find a

Kllroy took the lad under his wing
and urged him to get his arm over
his shoulder before pitching. Matty
tried time and again, and told Just why
the over-arm swing was better than
the side-arm motion.
All the advice fell upon deaf ears.
The fact that the man instructing him
had held a Job for two years in the
majors on his head work alone didn't
make any difference.
"I've been accustomd to pitching
this way." was the surly remark of
the youngster, and he kept on with his
