THE WASHINGTON TIMES. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1015.
ROLL ITCH WITH
Goodly Throng of Rooters Ac
company Team in Automo
biles. MANY LEAGUES SUSPEND
Holiday Has Caused Lapse- of
One Night in Majority of
Sohedules of Washington.
By KIRK C. MILLER.
( Leaving the Commercial bowling
alleys in .Tenth street about thirty
Minutes behind -scheduled time at
8:30 this morning, the Giant duckpin
team and a band of more than a
down rooters started in automobiles
fhr ffa.0w111r.nw11. Mel., where the
nagerstown ah aiars wm do mev,
late this afternoon
Heading the party and carrying the
members of the Giants was a Buick
U JiOrnOTOiIiM OTA no
touring car which was driven by E.
M. Wallace, and at his side was A.
( Q. Frosperi, his mechanician. Half
dozen other, cars made up the little
procession which took for its course
the Washington - Baltimore pike.
These cars conveyed the faithful
band of rooters which has watched
the Giant outfit practice for the past
three weeks, and which accompanies
the team in hopes of cheering it on
to victory in its battle in the Mary
I Five games are to be rolled In
Hftgerttown tonight and five are to be
rolled In Washington at a date which
hall be announced later. In the net of
ten games, total pins are to coirnt, so
It Washington can take a substantial
lead In" tonight's conflict, it Is almost
certain the locals will ba able to hold
tt or even increase It whon Hngors
town conies here later. Rubber banded
Sins arc popular In Hagerstown, hut it
hall be left to the discretion cf Cap
tain Hodge's team as to whether or not
i the solid wooden pins will bo used.
Little Is known here of the ability of
the Hagerstown pinners, other than a
set of averages which have been sub
mitted by Captain Baker. -The Mary
landers' averages, according to Baker's
figures, are higher than the best marks
of the Giants, but the former marks
were made with rubber pins, so little
real comparison can be made from the

The big bowling guns of Washington
sure but half cocked today, as many of
th leagues did not schedule games for
George Washington's Birthday night.
However, about a dozen of the circuits
Will hold matches tonight, and tho re
mainder of the clientele will amuse
Itself In the various tournaments which
Jxblv been inaugurated to make the holi
day a gal& one.
Ice Cream Day Is the big attraction
at the Palace Alleys where the duckpin
votaries are rolling hourly for gallons
of Ice cream. Beginning at 10 o'clock
and continuing until midnight, the
Chapln-Sacks Company la awurding a
gallon of Velvet Kind each hour to tho
man rolling the highest game.
While the history of bowling has been
known to reveal many queer styles In
the matter of bowling prizes, this thing
' of rolling at the pins for Iro cream Is
certainly new to Washington, and Judg
ing from the talk of the bowlers Satur
day night, they are us anxious to win
a gallon of "sweots" as If the awaid
was to be a medul or even cash.
Captain Harvey Rogers, of the Stans
bury Lodge team. In the Masonic
League, Is still insisting that his team
will come out of the season a victor,
despite the three "Jolts" which it was
handed by Lebanon on Tuesday night.
The race In this circuit is bound to de
velop Into close finish as barely two
games now separate Stansbury from
. the runners up. Rogers, however, Is
confident and he wants to be shown.
Secretary McKnew reports tho slpnln;;
of nearly a hundred more bowlers into
the ranks of the Atlantic Coast Bowllnn
Association, but there are many more
hundreds which he wants to get Into
This Is a good movement, bowlers, and
those of you who wish to see your fav
orite pastime Prosper, will do well to
become affiliated with this new organi
sation which 1 going to lift bowline
up to the plane of baseball, football, and
other major sports.

"I base this belief," resumed the gaunt
general, "on my talks with tho third

"If money had anything to do with his
discontent, I would have known about

to change all contracts for documents in
which the ten days' stipulation was

an absolutely Ironclad contract.
"When 1 broached the matter to the
players, several declared they would not
stand for this slight alteration, unless
they were paid extra for It. Several of
my stars held me up in this way.
"Baker was not one of them. He Mgned
the new contract at the same figure
without tho slightest protest. Now, had
he wanted more money he was In a posi

me to boost the flgureF.

him to name his price, and that I would

Ho wrote that he hadn't given the ques

was quitting solely because ho detested
