2ndn-.i schemes wsrs framed to give the veteran more confidence In
I ..I wnek Manager Jennings took Daus* out in the bull pen and gare '
Mm a blistering workout. He had every thing His control had returner
2d hi* curve was absolutely baffling. His control was all right yesterday,
ftor that matter, for he walked only two men and hit a score of bats
■agbey decided that the time had come for the showdown. Stanage whom
Georg* prefers, was sent In to catch him. The club hit well for the firs
ttee this year and got a lot of runs early In the game. The stage was
liven an ideal setting.
Then came the blast. Dauss was doused There is excellent reason to
btilleve that now his confidence has gone forever Only by remarkable
will he amount to much thi* season ivetroit can thank whatever
|»ckv stars shine for this burg tbai Khmke and C. Jones are coming thru

Concerning MrjLSothoron
IT mav turn out that when Dave blew h:m*elf full of bullets
lyipm IB Tessa last Winter, he did Tb* St !,out« Browns a great favor
TMacmerlng that Mr Davenport would not be available this aeason
Fielder Jonee tore hla hair for a spell and then hied himself to Port
land Ore., where he found one Allan Sothornn awaiting the call to the big
league Young Mr. Bothoron la from New England. Bob Hedges bought
him from New Haven a couple of years ago and farmed him to Wichita.
Last year the hoy was shipped to Portland and turned loose In the Coast
langur, where he pitched 3*7 innings and won 30 of 47 games
Fielder Jonee not only found this Sothoron. but brought him back to
Louie with him. Last week the young man got into a game Just in time
ta get credit for the flret decision taken from the White Sox. He
pltehed again this week, and held Cleveland to one hit and no runs in nine
Slugs Sothoron'* stock in trade la a sidearm spltter. It rosy not last,
hUt right now It looks as If the Browns not only had an effective right
haader but had a right hander who will make St. I.ouis forget Dave
Davenport altogether.
Baseball has pulled the unexpected again After a decade devoted to

luhaneously Vic Saier broke » eg W ere pon bo'h r «t*burgh and
Cltfcago began to bid for Mr Merkle, who Is now in line for a regular Job
at a salary very likely to be at his own terms and who is a much wanted

Good aa the Yankees are they will have to step some to beat
the Tigers in the competitive drill next summer. In the cahsthenic
drill the Tigers are especially good Furthermore. Jennings de
clares that these calisthenics should be incorporated In every
coefse of baseball training This exercise, in which bats are u -ed
Instead of guns, accomplishes wonders in “loosening up" a baseball
player before a game.
Everywhere the Giants and Tiger* went the Detroit team *
drill waa a feature that drew thunderous applause from the spec
tators. There Isn't going to be any clamor ag itnst baseball if this
spirit prevails. It la tec bad that the National league did not fall
