Pardon us If, after a considerable

If anybody swipes that crown it will 1
be over Mr. Cobb's dead l osy.

but at that site has something on

Miss Weiss pitches well. She has
splendid control, a g*M>d. fast breaking
curve, more speed than you'd expect,
and a bewildering change of pace,
which is in itself an asset —if you
won t believe It ask Clarke Griffith.
In addition to doing a fine and fancy
flinging act, Alta is. in the phraseol
ogy of the pastime, "there with the
noodle ” She fields well, handling
bunts with ease and gets the ball
away fast and to the proper place
when she gets,hold of it.
At bat she is not so much. Usualiy
she pushes the bat toward the ball,
ungracefully and without force, but
her father, who travels with her. Ims
been instructing her in the art of
meeting the ball properly, and this
spring she claims to have mastered
the art of standing up to the plat*
and whaling away with enough
strength to make base hits occa
sionally.
This summer the girl pitcher will
travel with her team the Weiss All
