Think what a he p it s to a club to have its three host nmen always in the game? 'Morgan seems to have the call for the second bresc job, but there are others. Gri f.lh has a hunch to select from, even though he had been muak ing quitrk d visions and cutting loose players as fast a: he finds them una vailicg, and takinz on others for trial. Grif at least has smashed the tryout record and sti'l is at it. IMorgan Is a capable little fcl'ow, and one likely to show a lot of im proverment. I am afraid Grif maide a bobble in cutting loose Harry Wel chrnce, a crcking hitter and' aWlfsist mian. tie showed a lot in the I",ftsi and i.rif n1ight have dorin i i tik look him over a little longer. How ever, he still has a raft of them on lhan. tariff seenms sweet. op ,4cosia and Joe -Gadeon. " Taken alto.ethor, Grif has hih team of last seasnn, with a lot of reserve strength that, he needed then and didn't have. Ito presents a faster arid clever infield'and a fair outfield, .put ting the question up to the pitchers and catchers. The catching staff is all right, al tlhough Pig Jack H-enry's condlition is a problemn. His knee, ,which troubled him all last year, and which he had oper ated upon, is still troubling him, and he submitted to further treatment. He is needed, although the others can go along. Johnson, of course, will be the pitcher, and he is willing and anxious to work his head off to win Hle is due for another great season, and, with theI inliroved support he is certain to get, he ought to win better than 700 per cent of his games. In big f(ashion he has an able assistant. Cashion is one of the most promising pitchers in' the country, and with the experience of last season added he ought to be great. Then Boh Groom is touted as being at his best. Groom i'erily is a fins' workman, who never really had en couragement enough to do his best un til last season. Tom Hughes, the per ennial, will he ,there, 'giving Griffith a reliable quartet-without countjng on the others. He has a swarm of helpers out. Shanks, Sheer, Connolly, Allen. Morley-well, if he hasn't sold them befire this gets into print, he has plenty. Griffith has a strong asset in Gor limany Sichaefer, for "Schaef" makes one of the ablest assistant managers in the country, and can straighten out tt4ulile. quicker than any man in tihe business. He was an immense help to Jennings 'when he \\was in Detloit, and tnst season he was invaluable in keep ing upl the spirits of the team' and keeping them fighting it out to the end. The team tacus class, but never for get that the White Sox onte won a \Korldl's championship with a lot wqrse team. Now that finishes up the study of the major leagues. Next week I'm goi ing to present the figures that my dope has' shown.

CHEERING HELPS SICK SAYS ONE SUPERVISOR S;ni Francisco, April 5.-The hboard of sup)ervisors debated todlay what if feet tile cheering of the fjrns would have on a sick man wllhen the home teilam made tl Ilonle run in the ninth inning, with the bases full, two out and fouir runs needed to win. "A noise like that," said Supervisor I'aglicri, "would cure nervous paralysis and knit ibroken hones. If 'it didn't save. a dying mani's life, at least it w\voul permit him to die ha'pply." The argument was mlre thain Iheoretieal, for on the decision to be reached d eplnds whether the San I"'rancise'i lhaselhitl club shall have a now $255,000 irark withini a blhck of St. f.uke's hospital.

C'ummings in 1886, when the fornmer established the world's record for one mile at 4 minutes 12 3-4 sec onds, are likely to be revived this 'this year, for there is a good prospect of .i contest betewe.n John Patul Jones, hoider of the American amnlateur rec ord( of4 Iniattes iii 2-5 sec~'pd.t, made by hlim aat tlsh 'filterco:lldg6tRe ' n of 1911, 'aid A <A K viat, e3' greatest riv st qt't dti t is ,anxious. t revr1te the, the Olyinpie games last ler when he finished second to Kiviat in the 1,500-metre race, although bols w\\te beaten by'. Jackson of England, and is anxious ,to meet the New York runnter, who has been showing bet ter 'form than last year in the indoor 'ames this winter. Since the George-Cummings race, there has been only one sensational contest, that when Tommy Conneff won the world's reeord in 1895 at Travers Island in one 'second more time than Jonet made the distance two years ago, when he broke the rec ordl. W'hon Jones set his hecord. he was so much better than his tnmpetl tors 'that it was believed that he could have gone close to the George record if pushed. Since he made that record'-' Jones has 'been running in and out, his dead heat of last year in the interco'legiate being no better than 4 minutes and 20 3-5 seconds. This spring, howeever, he has been steadily improving irk his work, and with eii indoor & 1he has Im proved hi~ tipe, and In the games at A.lichigan "recently he `ran the mile in .4 minutes 19 2-5 seconds. Jones is 5ooked to run in only 'two outdoor 'meets thuts far, the Cornell-Harvard dtial meet and the intercollegiates, for both .f Which '7T'lviat Is ineligible, but both ma\ come to the 'scratch at the Am:ateur Athletic union championship meet, and if they do, it will be a race worth going miles to see; 'ard if a new American record is not made, it wi'l not be the fault of their trainers, as there are possibilities of George's record going by the boards as well.
