for Purchase of Team.
Deal Would Not Result in Re
moral, However.
Jimmy Manning Is trying to buy the
- Topeka baseball team, franchise and
all its holdings for a wealthy real es
tate man. He has been correspond
ing with the local management for a
month or more and a deal may be
closed in the near future. Manning is
a former major leaguer and Is beet
known here as manager of the Kansas
City Blues for a number of years.
Manning is engaged In selling Texas
land at present and Is associated with
a Chicagoan who wants to put some
money in a baseball team. The local
management has made them a propo
sition and a decision is expected in a
short time. However, they expect to
keep the team in Topeka and build
up a strong aggregation. The local
management places a value on its
holdings which range from 20.000 to
Manning was once a part owner of
the Washington team before the Amer
ican League was organized. He is a
hustler. Gear was a pitcher for the
Kansas City team while the former
was employed as the manager. It is
probable that Gear would be retained
as active manager, although Manning
would dictate affairs.

Gallager, Fullerton and Adams have
shown excellent work as pitchers. The
old men who were with the team last
year are showing up better than be

will have trouble In picking the regu

District Contests.
The first district high school meet
will be held In Topeka this year. It
will probably be held on the last Sat

later. The meet was held in Holton last
year. Winners of events In this meet
will represent their respective schools
and district at the state meet. None
will be entitled to represent their schools
at the state meeting excepting the first i
and second winners. The local high

the state meet. There are a large num- I

In the spring of 1909, Duck Holmes took
his Sioux City ball club on a barnstorm
ing trip through Kansas to season the
plavers for the pennant race. One of Ins
pitchers at that time was Eddie From.
The Indians, or Packers, as they were
called at that time, were to open the sen
son in Wichita, so they made their last
stop at Hutchinson. 42 miles from the
"Peerless Princess." When registering
the members. Tom Fairweather, who was
secretary then, placed From's name on
the register at the top of the list, neg
lecting to write his Christian name, and
in the proper colmun opposite he wrote
the words Sioux City, la. Following
From's name were those of the other
players with ditto marks under the Sioux

that the hotel clerk had taken his name

pitcher finally procured a bed all right

from his bed, and the latter In turn awoke

You had better send in your guess
now to the Baseball Editor of the
State Journal on the paid attendance
at the opening game April 18 between
the Topeka and Denver teams. This
paper will give a season ticket valued
at more than $40 to the person coming
nearest the actual figures.
