This will probably be the complete

asether race could be secured to be

of April, it would probably be accept

the midshipmen's practice cruise,
which starts the first week in June.
DEFENDS ON CRUISE.
There is still a possibility of get
ting in the race on the Hudson, but
it is felt that there Is hardly an even
char-e. If the practice cruise is con
fined to the north Atlantic or the
squadron has not left those waters by
June 22, the entry is possible. If a
eruise to any other point in directed.
the participation of the navy crew is
out of the question.
While under some circumstances,
the oarsmen might be allowed to miss
the cruise, it is not likely that they
will be permitted to do so this time,
as practically all of them were with
the rowing party which went to
Antwerp last summer, so that the
same midshipmen would miss two
This could hardly be permitted, so
the management accepted the invita
tion from Princeton, and that race
should be one of the big events in col
legs aquatics this spring. The situa
tion is greatly regretted at the Naval
Academy, as the duty of giving other
crews the fullest opportunity of
meeting the Olympic champions is

crew will not suffer.

All the oarsmen have benefited by
their experience, and Glendon ham had
them on the water this year earlier
than ever before. With the changes
which have been made, the crew will
be a little heavier than last year, and
should be more powerful and a shade
better in every way.

Hersog is in New York to get some
action on his case before the season
opens. Naturally, he desires to place

before Judge Landis with my story.
but I have not been summoned."
NO RAN IN MiNORS.
The fact has been established that
there is no ban on Herzog in the
minor leagues. He has received two
splendid offers from clubs in the
American Association and the Pacific
Coast League. Both of these offers
carry salaries in excess of what Her
sog could hope to earn in the National

cause I think some people would be
only too glad to get rid of me that
way. They could argue then that I
would be deprived of none of my
rights. But I consider it my right to
demand further trial in the majors.
If they think I can't play major league
ball, the easiest way to prove it is to
give me the chance.
I hit poorly last yvar, and there
was a good reason for it. In the
spring I sugfered fromn bewnia and
was advised to submit to an opera
tion. At the request of the Chicago
club I deterred the operation until
last fall and wore a truss on the
field. Thus handicapped. I could not
do my best.
"I have had the operation per.
formed and am feeling Ait again. Re
cently I have made somne tests and I
know that I can play baiL. I may not
be a wonder, but surely I am entitled
to the sanne oonsideration that a
rookie is. I have the experience and
I can do som club some good.
TMBT WON"I' T'UML3,
"I am willing to accept aay propo
sition to prove my fitmese. But no
body in the National League will
give me a tumble. I have spent my
baseball life in that league. I have
been a manager in it. During the
Federal League war they laid down
$45,000 in front of me to manage
the Brooklyn club, but I stuck, and
Lee Magee got the job.
Now it looks as if I am done be
cause a player I once released made
an ugly charge against me. He can't
prove it, but he ii still a valuable
pitcher, so he stays and I get out.
But I'm not going without a fight.
"They elected Judge Landis to
give baseball a housecleaning.
Crooked players are being tossed
out. Joe Gedeon was let out in St.
Louis because ho admitted betting
on an inside tip on the 1919 world
series. What about other players
who bet on the same information?"
"I'm sick of the whole thing,' says
the player. "And I knew everybody
else is tired of bearing my troubles.
But after all, I am the one who
suffers, and I can't help thinking
about it. It's on my mind night and
day. The season is almost here and
Ill soon be forgotten if I don't do
something. I am not begging for
money. I can live wittsout playing
ball. But I have my pride left and
a good name to protet."
LANDIS PRgTFT DUST.
In fairness to Judge Landis, it can
be said that he inquired unofficially
into the Heruog ease before he tookt
office as high commissioner. He is
just beginning to get the routine of
this office straightened out, and prob
