DALL PLAYERS MUST
ODSERVE RIGID ROLES
Manager of Pirates Insists Men
to Keep In Good
Pittsburgh, April 22. Manager
Clarke of Uie Pirates is a great
er for form, and Insists Uiat libs
lead very model lives, at least during
training season. He has Just Issued
a table of ten commandments for tha
team which aro all don'ts. Here they
1 Don't smoke clsarottes. If you
must use tobacco select a good Pitts
burgh stoglo or a pipe.
2 Don't drink. Alcoholic stimu
lants used In moderation ma do lit
tle harm; they can do no good, and
they are dangerous. Better be p. tee
totaler. 3 Don't keep lato hours. "Early
to bed and early to rise" Is still a
4 Don't gamble. Worrying about
an acefull that was beaten last night
or wondering how Uie horses are run
ning whllo play Is in progress, ara
5 Don't be a grouch. Cheorfullness
Is a very desirable quality In anybody
a ball player In particular. Sharp
answers and displays of temper on
the field interfere witli successful
team work and often cause enmities.
Don't procrastinate. If anything
Interferes with reporting on Ume cut
it out. Tardiness sots a bad example.
7 Don't bo a backbiter. If you
have an Idea Uiat the club is not be
ing managed properly ,tell Uie mana
ger about It. If your suggestions are
good he'll appreciate them, y
8 Don't be a quitter. It you are
getting a bad break on Uio luck, brace
yourself and fight all the harder.
9 Don't sulk. If you've been callod
down the cluinces are that you de
served It, and you'll gain nothing by
showing your teeth.
10 Don't bait the umpire. Base
ball law gives him the advantage over
you at all times so that It does not
pay to oppose him. The captain will
attend to all the necessary kicking.
