Fielder Jones, former manager of
the Chicago White Sox, and now a
real mogul in the Northwestern
league, thinks Frank Chance would
make a mistake to accept the' position
as manager of the Yankees. Clark
Griffith*, also an ex-manager of the
White Sox, says the Peerless one will
make a sucker of himself if he turns
the offer down. Great baseball minds

Chance is like any other ball play
er. He wants all the money he can
get. If Farrell comes through with
enough coin Frank will manage the
Yankees. He knows the team was a
had one last season, that he will
have poor material to build a con
tender out of, and that he will be the
"goat" if no improvement is shown
under his direction. Therefore he
wants to be paid well for the risk
of losing prestige as a managerial
genius, and one can't blame him for
Whether Chance would make good
with the Yankees is another story.
He proved a great leader in Chicago
and gathered several pennants and
world's championships. But he had
the material to work with. He fell
heir toNa great ball club when Frank
Selee retired on account of ill-health.
However, he made the most of the
opportunities offered and with the
aid of a great pitching staff and such
brainy ball players as Kling, Evers
and Tinker moulded the Cubs into
one of the classiest machines in the
history of the game. As manager of
the Yanks Chance will be called upon
to do Ms own building. Will he be
equal to the task? Only time will

MCCARTHY LEFT WIFE AND BABY
STRANBED IN NORTH DAKOTA
Fargo, N. D., Jan. 4."Luck" is a
great big, good-natured kid. That is
the estimate placed on the heavy
weight champion of the world by his
wife, Rhoda McCarty. She is at pres

Howard's cafe in the saloon,district
in Moorhead, Minn., just across the
river from Fargo.

years ago in May, two months after
he was sixteen. I was'[ Rhoda

'Luck' was employed on boats. Then
we went to Saskatoon, Can., where
'Luck' was a cook and later a cowboy
and learned to be skillful with the
lariat. He sent me home on a visit
and came to Fargo, where he said he
would make a home for me, but he
started in the fight game here and
neglected his work.
"No, I am hot sore at 'Luck.' In
fact, I am rather proud of him. I
always was, because he was a big,
handsome chap. Tnere is absolutely
nothing vicious about him. We never
had a cross word until he lost out in

not stick to anything very long. He
was always planning something new.

and has got to the top, I guess it is
all right. After he left Fargo sud-r

my little baby, and having no trade,
had to do something. I started to

plenty of money, he will take care of
McCarty said today: "I shall take
a trip to the mountains and enjoy a
rest. After that I'll probably put on
a rope-throwing act in vaudeville.
Beyond that I have not decided.
