UP TO DATE SPORTS American League Defies Feds to Make Them Worry Much
ISSUES DEFI 10
United Front Is Opposed to In
vaders by American League
Moguls, Who Simply Refuse
to Worry About Them.
"Down With Economy" Is
Slogan, and Baseball's Czar
Forces National League to
Follow His, Example.
By LOUIS A. DOUGHER.
Defiance to the Federal League is
breathed in everyjnovc of Ban John
son and his cohorts. Far from cut
ting expenses at the expense of the
playing organization because of the
invasion by Jimmy Gilmore's band,,
the American League has tossed
aside all fear. All its old rules will
be kept and, furthermore, as an
added defi, American League clubs
have been authorized to begin train
ing "whenever they please."
The skillful handling of league af
fairs by Ban B. Johnson is once more
shown. In December the National
League suggested its cut to twenty
one players. Now, after Ban John
son's sturdy action in the face of
Federal League warfare, the Na
tional League will next week be
practically compelled to follow the
lead of the younger organization, or
lose in the estimation of the public.
The excellent team work of American
lrfsaeiu; magnates is also shown in the
unanimous vote to allow President
Johnson to hunalo the waiving of draft
privileges from the three Class AA or
Kanlzations. Ban has been olothed with
authority to not as he sees fit, following
a conference with President John K.
Tcner. of the National League. If the
Federal League is succcsalul, it will not
bo because of the weakness of the
American league. It is this point that
Han Johnson has sunk home, too.
As In 1911. each club will be allowed
to retain thirty-five players in the pla
itig periods between August 13 and May
16. Between May 15 and August 15,
only twenty-five players will be allowed
on the roster. During the winter tli
bky will be the limit.
The use of the "emery ball" has been
tabooed, and now Joe Wood will havo
to do some real Ringing to get by.
Two season passes, good lor every big
league park in the league, will be given
each piayer, thus elevating the ath
letes to the rank of baseball writers.
The schedule has been adopted oftlclal
ly, which is hardly a surprise.
Colonel Kuppert and Captain Huston,
the new VanKee owners, were intro
duced, coaxed into making speeches, and
then shown where to bay.
Outside of these few little details
nothing really happened at Ban John
son's Katheilng, wmch should please Oll

Rickey Thinks Collins
May Land Flau for Sox
Brownies' Manager Says Former Mackman Will Make "Wise"
Club, Besides Hitting and Fielding Like Star Connie
Won't Miss Men Who Have Left His Ball Club.
By CLARENCE F. LLOYD.
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 4. Branch Rickey
claims that it is possible to transform a
tall-ende,r into a pennant winner by the
addition of one player. To prove that
such a thing is possible he asks that the
White Sox, of Chicago, who recently ob
tained the services of Edward Trow
bridge Collins, late of Philadelphia, be
closely watched during the approaching
In Rickey's opinion. Collins is likely
to -make a (lag winner of tho White
Sox. despite the fact that the Hose fin
ished in sixth place In 1911, being beaten
out of fifth place by the Brownies by
the narrow margin of a single game.
"If I were a betting man," said
Rickey, "I would feel just as safe hold
ing a ticket on the White Sox us I
would with a wager on most any of tho
heavily backed favorites In the race. It
would not surprise me a bit if the Sox
won the pennant.
"The White Sox may not have been
very impressive looking last season,
but the addition of Collins will make
tho ChicuKo team one to be feared Col
lins will make the Sox a smart ball club.
Ho Is a brainy ball player himself. That
will help cmite a bit. His presence on
the ball club will make those about him
more alert and active."
In picking tho White Sox as pennant
contenders this season, Rickey Is tak
ing it for granted that Clarence "Pants"
Rowland, the new manager, will be a
success. Ho met the new Sox leader on
his recent trip to Chicago, and says he
was impressed with President Comls
"Resides being a wonderful hitter anj
fielder, Collins, will supply the Sox
with 'itrav matter.' " continued Rickey.
"The Sox have long been known as a
weak hitting aggregation, but with Col
lins In the line-up, it will give them a
clean-up man to be telied on. He
knows the batters of the other clubs
and will not only play for them him
self, but will place his teammates, too.
"(Jive ran a certain .300 hitter like Col
lins and I would not hesltato to say
that tho Browns would figure an a pen
nant contender. It means a whole lot
to a club to have a player like him
In its ranks.

such grcnt things for the White Sox,
now that Collins is a member of that
team, the Browns' manager was asked
what effect, if any, the loss of Collins
would mean to the athletics.
"The Athletics will probably miss Col
lins at first." Rickey ansswered, "but
It wllUnnt be long before the Phlntoel
Phla tHib finds Itself, even though ho Is
"In this connection. I wunt to make a
prediction. It is that Larry Lnjole, who
will probably play second In Collins'
place this seaason. will have a great
year. The now sunpundJuga ate sure

to make a difference in the work of tho
Rickey ventures the opinion that Con
nie Mack will not miss Chief Bender
and Eddie Plank, who have hopped to
"Hender will bo missed least of all."
continued Rickey, "because there aro
other right-handers on the Philadelphia
club who can step In Immediately to
take his place. I am thinning of
Shawkey, Bush, and Wyckcff. Plank, in
my opinion, was more valuable to Mack
than Bender, but his place will soon bt.
filled, either by Pennock, who has al
ready proven that he's a great left
hander, or try Bressler, a ioung boy
who came like a house afire last sea
son. "The Athletics, despite the loss of
Collins. Bender, and Plank, will be
heard from, and must be conceded their
annual chance to win the pennant."
"How about the Red Sox of Boston?"
"At times, I believe that this team Is
too strong for the other clubs In the
league,' was Rickey's come-back.

Winter Sports At Navy
Are Excellently Organized
First Big Day Comes Next Saturday, When Basketball, Fencing,
Wrestling, Swimming, and Gymnastics Will Occupy the
Attention of Every Midshipman at Academy.
ANNAPOLIS, Feb. 4. Winter sports
are more varied, nnd probably more
systematically organized at the Naval
Academy than at any other place In tho
Fnlted States. Moreover, It Is certain
that theie Is no place which offers so
many fine contests ln the different
branches of college athletics which are
In vogue at that time of the year. Tho
Acadtiny, authorities have a special of
ficers whose duty It is to keep tho mld
Hh.nmen busy In athletics throughout
the year, and there Is no gap between
the ending of the football season at the
last of November and the beginning of
basebull and other spring sports late
It Is not at all unusual for there to be
five contests. In as many different
branches of athletics on some of the
Saturdays In February and March. This
is due to the fact that the Naval Acad
emy Is represented in every branch of
sport regularly taken up by the colleges,
and that practically all of the contests
take place here. Saturday, February 6,
will be the first of the big days lu win
ter athletics. On that day, the midship
men havo tho following schedule : Bas
ketball. Dartmouth ; fencing, Massachu
setts Institutes of Technology ; swim
ming, University of Pittsburgh : gym
nastlcb. New York University; wiest
llng. Pennsylvania State College.
It can bo fairly claimed for the Naval
Academy that no other Institution has
so good u record in these winter sports
as the Naval Academy. For the two
seasons preceding this, the Midshipmen
won all their games at basketball, nnd
this season have been defeated only by
Yale. For two seasons, the gymnastlo
team has been unbeaten, and the
wrestling team, meeting tho best in tho
East, has lost but one match a season
for the past two years. No team, ex
cept West Point, has as good a record
in fencing, and this season was begun
by beating Harvard badly last Satur
day. Swimming Is the cnlv one of the win
ter c ports in which tho midshipmen line
a ir.cdlocro record. This Is rattier gall
ing to the Navy contirgent. ,as It Is
felt that the embryo naval officers
should make a big name in a fport &o
clojely connected with their profession.
Lest oar thero were distinct signs of
Improvement, and this hccson It Is
hoped to reach a much higher standard.
Soccer Is also played at the Naval
Acadcmj. but so far activity In it has
been confined to class gamos, a series of
which is now in progiess.
The other Saturdays lu February, ana
thn first two in March, offer the fol
lowinir progiams; February 13 Basket
