Jim Thorpe Real Ba'l Player;
Will Be in Game With Giants
Harrisburg Admirer Brings Good News About the Former
Carlisle Indian Star; McGraw Is Much Pleased
Indications are favorable for the
appearance of Jim Thorpe, the Car
lisle star athlete. In the regular base
ball game this season. Thorpe has
improved wonderfully, according to
Leo Harris, the local coach and foot
j ball official, who recently met Thorpe
! in New York.
When McGraw first signed Jim
j Thorpe the then ex-amateur wizard,
I considerable speculation was had on
every side as to the Giant chief's mo
| tlve in such a mad venture. Many
I pointed out that Thorpe as a ball
player was nil and that Muggsy had
•nerely signed him as a drawing card.
Others, more sanguine, declared that
there was really a chance that the red
man would develop, and that if any
one could make a presentable player
of him it was McGraw.
Thorpe didn't get discouraged and

Buried Under Foot of
Earth an Hour; Life
Is Miraculously Saved
Caught under a fall of ground when
the walls of a ditch at Fourth and
Seneca streets caved in. this afternoon,
Salem Hill, of 6 Lochlel Row. was
buried under a foot of damp earth
for an hour. His life was saved by
i a plank which fell on top of him when
the earth fell, giving him space
I enough to breathe.
1 Workmen on the Job worked for an
: hour to dig Salem out. He was com
j pletely covered, but showed that he
was alive by calling to the rescuers
as they worked. When' he was taken
out he was injured about the legs
| and chilled from the damp earth
! which covered him.
It 1b not known what caused the
earth to slide. The pipes were being
put in the sewer. Hill was working
in the ditch when at 1.58 o'clock with
out warning the walls fell on top of
him. At first it was thought that he
was killed, but a faint voice from the
pile of earth hurried the rescuers
with the shovels. The police ambu
lance arrived ready to carry the man
to the Harrisburg Hospital an soon as
i lie was taken out. He was less seri
-1 ously hurt than wus expected
Muggsy McGraw didn't give him up.
The Indian kept hard at work and
proved himself a keen observer. He
watched his own shortcomings and
studied the methods of his teammates.
Let it not be forgotten that he is a
wonderful athlete. Matters of throw
ing, running and general speed wor
ried him little. He had only to learn
the inside dope of the game.
Muggsy McGraw declares that the
world's tour has worked wonders with
Thorpe. He has had chances to take
part in fast little games—chances thai
he didn't get last year In the regular
season. He has Improved beyond be
lief, declares Muggsy. And next sea
son when the -Giants trot out on the
field to do battle among their numbet
will be Jim Thorpe, able to field and
hit with the best of them.

rate one-act musical comedy, called

traction is the newest and said to be
