can ba arranged, he is willing to sign
a Galveston contract.
As Dallas is getting no good out of

league. He Is a catcher, but has not

Bill Lattimore played a few games at
first base recently for Fort Worth.
When he was playing with South Mc

he frequently played that position.

Buffaloes are badly crippled and there

Jackson is the newest player signed
by the San Crabs. He is expected to
join the team shortly. He plays both
the infield and the outfield and has
a good record.
Jack Jarvis, better known as "Red,"
who graduated from the Texas league
to the Southern and made a sensation,
Is back in Texas. He is not playing
'ball but is enjoying watching the game
from the grand stand. After he got
too slow for the Southern league he
came back to San Antonio and went
from tnat team to Fort Worth and
Waco. He has now grown to old for
Lawson, late of the Bronchos, has
been added to the Waco team. He is
: playing second base. '
Pitcher Shontz, of the Dallas Giants,
has been loaned to the Waco team. Al
though Gardner denies that he owns
that franchise there seems to be little
doubt but that he does
Barry McCormick, one time one of
the most famous outfielders -who ever
played "with the Dallas Giants, is in
Texas making a trip over the circuit.
He has left the exciting pastime of
baseball to become a traveling sales
man. Umpire Kanzler, the ne-svest umpire
in the Texas league, is being handed a
few bouquets for his good work. Good
ness knows It -was time a good oue or
two was being landed for the league.
Tommy Carlin, third baseman of
Houston, has returned to his home in
Indiana to recuperate from an attack
of malaria. It is probabe that Hous
ton will lose his services for the re
mainder of the season.
Wetzel, of the Galveston team is still
out of the game on account of illness
and he is being badly missed.

of the game for several days.
When Bid McPhee, of the Cincinnati
Reds paid 17000 for Rube Benton, a
southpaw pitcher, of the Macon team,
he established a new record for the
price for class C players. Benton is
less than 20 years old and is said to be

The recall by Atlanta of Pitcher Grif
fin and the temporary retention of
pitcher Rogers has badly crippled the
Bronchos as their pitching staff was
not going any too fast. One redeem
ing feature is the fact that Abies is
back He celebrated his return by lam
basting his old teammates, Dallas.
Dallas is coming out of the hole with
a rush that is marvelous. The team will
play three or four games in regular big
league style and then all go to pieces.
That is what is so hard to understand,
Pendry, the new shortstop, of the
Bronchos, is in the (tame and is doing
KOod work Th new inflelder hails
from the Central league and has played
fortunate in the combination of cir
cumstances which resulted in his re-
manning with the team.
Foley White, after
BE BPEfi FIRST OF
nrcund the league, is now with the Sand
Crabs. He is a handy man to fill. He,
can really be called the utility player
of the Texas league as he held al of
the teams out in tight places.
Jay Kanzler, of Fort Worth, and Roy
craft, of Austin, are the latest addi
tions to president Allen's staff of um
I ires. Roycraft umpired but one game
when a hit ball dislocated his shoulder.
Kanzler played first base for awhile
this season for Fort Worth.
McDonald, the Farmersville amateur,
recently signed by Dallas, has not yet
shown up. The boy is a third sacker,
and is said to be fast.
Houston may be deprived of the
services of Tommy Carlin, of Newcastle,
Ind., recently signed by that team. He
i now seriously ill at his home with
malaria. He has tried to play in the
south both seasons, but chills ar.u fever
nave forced him to give it up.
Well, Dallas has unloaded another one
on Waco. Jewell Ens will go to that
city. McConnell is delivering the goods
for Dallas at short and it's Ens to the
"cast offs." Dallas still has a bad hole
at third uncovered and there is talk of
letting Tony Thet)o try his hand at
delivering the goods there.
George Leidy, manager of the Bron
chos, says that he is the best pinch
hitter in the Texas league. If one will
watch George for a wfiile they will
come to the conclusion that there is
merit to his contention.
Shortstop Pendry, the latest acqui
sition of the San Antonio team, is due
to show up" within a few days. Maybe
he will break the 'hoodoo" that seems
to be following the team over the cir
New men are being added to the cel
lar champions. Waco announces the
purchase of inflelder Lawson from
Rochester, and catcher Lowert from
Syracuse. Outfielder Stewart i' an
other new player secured from Kansas
City. The team may do a little better
if Dallas wll ony let them keep the
men. But if they show up good it's
nearly a cinch that it won't be long be
fore they will wear a Dallas uniform.
Pitcher Robb, formerly of San An
tonio, Beaumont and Galveston, who
failed to make good with the Beeville
team of the Southwest Texas league,
is now being given a try out with La

M-as badly hammered So art the

Since hitting the home grounds.
Dallas has certainly been putting up
a fine exhibition of fast ball. The first
three games played with the Houston
champions was played without letting
the visitors "make a single run. When
an aggregation can get together and
put up a game like that. It seems al
most impossible that they could play
as ragged as they did 'on the road.
Some of the teams will have to stop
Fort Worth or that bunch is going
to the top of the heap. While Dallas
was lambasting Houston the Panthers
were doing a like service ''for the
Bronchos. While the two leaders were
coming down the ladder, both Galves
ton and Fort Worth were doing some
climbing. The Galveston team has
been the only south Texas team that
has been able to do much ok north
Thirteen hits and 12 runs. That is
what the Oklahoma team recently did
for pitcher Ogles of Waco. That Is
certainly making the hits bring home
