SNEEZE BALL INTENDED TO FOIL SWAT PROVES A BOOMERANG FOR RIVALS Poison Oaks Capture Pennant From Yellow Jackets Because Famous Slugger Wears Gas Mask and Frustrates Plans to Render Him Hors Ou Combat. By Bozeman Bulger. II i am lleduf, liaseball patriarth and Chairman of the Commission mi Jlistorlcal Jtcsearch and Autticntlcltu, after a year of indefatigable labor and compilation in the archives of the Willow Sii'amp League, Jia.i made public the first of lis findings, the value of ichlch to posterity ts inestimable. This publication gratefully accnoxrlcdges the honor uf be ing permitted to present them serially. File A (a) Pp, 23G-242. In ro The Sneeze nail. Y' OUR commission, under the authority vested In it as lierelubefi .-e mentioned, finds that a club certain day in August, win a ball gamo and thereby decide the pen nant by foiling a plot on the part of their opponents, tho Yellow Jackets, In which they conspired to render hors du. combat and futile the efforts of ono Swat Millignn, premier hitter of the said Tolson Oaks. ( The complexity of this case and the consequent discussion, it appears, hinged on the question of tho legality of the use of a ball known us the Sneeze ball and of the rule, then in vogue, which permitted a runner, after hitting a baseball, to continue running possiblo before the ball was recovered. Your commission flndH that both the enforcement of the said rule and the use of the said ball to have been legal, an Judged by the customs of those days. On tho dny in question tho Yellow Jackets had comu to Clogtown deter mined to destroy the Mfectivcness of tho said Swat Milligan, be the means fair or foul. Milligan was tho great est hitter that ever lived, and It was seldom that lie ever went to bat ex cept -with tho bases full. Knowing the predilection of his opponents to ward tho Invention of anything de signed to destroy his usefulness tho said Swat Milligan kept a oquad of Becret servicu men, sleuths true nnd tried, constantly at his beck and call. Early in the evening before tho now histnrln game it was reported to tho gallant hitter tliat his opponents, the Yellow Jnckets, had planned to render hhn harmless by the uso of the sneeze ball; that a ipltchcr, 55cko Ben- der by name, an Indolent rascal, would bo the agent of employing this craven device. When .Swat camo to hat. accord In c to this conspiracy, the bull, loaded with sneeze powder, was tn tin mibstltuted and nltcnea right under his nose, thereby causing him to go Into violent paroxysms) oi sneezing nnd etrike out. Milligan received tnis intormation with that calm fortltudo for which he was noted, meanwhile stroking af fectionately his famous home-run bat, sot with diamonds and Inlaid with precious bits of mother of pearl. Avoiding Inconsequential details, commission finds that tho score was tied in tho last half or tlio seventh in ning. By dint of a wild pitch and two short Blnglca tha Poison Oaks suc ceeded In getting thrco men on tne bases, to tho great Joy and acclaim of that portion of the public present All oyes turned to tho bench where Swat Milligan sat caimiy stroKing niu jew elled bat. Tho uninitiated d d not note though a queer device, something llko a min iature gas waste I men insiuu ine uosu that the said swat proceeacu to aa- J"?!: ilioie was uuan. m unuiiitrj- iuu mcnt Milligan strode majestically to the plate. There was hauteur In his eve. gradually blending into a steely glint as ho tapped tlio rubber and turned his glnnco on tho craven Zeko Bender. Tho Yellow Jackets knew that steely glint. Bender's knees nerceDtlbly trembled. Ho quick ly recovered his jwlsc, though, In the belief that his Sneeze ball would be effective. Swat Milligan took two strikes. By a deft motion Zeke nender then sub stituted tho desplcnblo spheroid. mil, - ..v ........... toward the plate and paled as no juu"") mum i.,w. saw the Intensity ot the steoly'ieJJnt. I All of which your commission rn "Bangl" w spcotfully submits as part of Docu- WUh U hla might tiwat MllHganmnt A, Vile X (a). Pp. Figures mm (New York Lvwilrig Woild,) by Press known as tho Poison Oaks did. on a and score as many tallies as was - ; his nose protected by tho patent guards, had met the medicated ball with his Jewelled bat. With the whine of a bullet the spheroid shot toward Thoman Tykes, the centre fielder of the Yellow Jackets. Tho smell of tho burning sneeze powder preceded tho whistling ball and ua it struck Tyke's bands the overheated sphere bounded straight up In the air, Just as be emitted a v.ulunt sneeze, lit the paroxysm -that tollowed the outfielder's mouth was unduly stretched aud tho falling ball dropped into it. IDs teeth clamped It tight, nis Juws stiffening. Ordinarily this would have- counted as: nn out. Under those rules though only tho first ruu was marked out and after 1hat the runner could con tinue, similar to the rule Avhlch per mits a present day runner to leave a base and scon; after a tly Is caught. Tho hugo framed Milligan bounded around the Uasea with the llghtneas of a gazelle. The meanwhile Yellow Jackets from all directions ran to the nld of Tykes who had the nail firmly fastened in nis mourn, weugeu behind his teeth. They pulled and cut, but to no avail. Even a dentist was sent ror nut no couiun t gei ue hlnd the teeth to extract them. Mnlllean had scored ten runs nnu was running easy -when Zoko Dcnder thought of a sclicmo to reucvo xynvs and recover tne unu. With a hurn knlfo blade they silt thn cover of the. Imprisoned bull and after some effort found tno ena oi too yarn wound Inside. Unwinding this yarn was a slow and tedious process, l ou will recall that a ball is coveroi uy ui icast a thousand yards-of this woollen yarn. It was the only possiblo way, though, of reducing tho ball In size so that It could bo removed. As tho Yellow Jackots began to un wind, running across tho field with tho loose end of tho yarn, Milligan picked up his speed. 'lie was averag ing about fivn circuits of tho bases to every hundred yard of unwound cord. "When poor Thomas Tvkes finally spat otit the wilted cover of tho snoezo-powdeitd ball Swat Milligan had scored exactly 28t runs, not counting nn unfinished half-lap. That was Mitllclent to win tho pen nant. It was unnecessary to count, It ap pears. Every Yellow Jacket player having had h.old of tho unravelling yarn the whole club went Into a fit of sneezing and doctors were working over them as the elated crowd filed ........... . ..

NATIONAL BODY OF FOOTBALL COACHES MAY BE FORMED TO-NIGHT A meeting which will probably have an important bearing on the future of American football, will be held at the Hotel Astor to night. A large number of grid iron coaches will assemble with a view of forming a national body of football coaches. Major Charles Daly, coach at West Point, at a dinner last winter attended by a number of prom inent coaches outlined his ideas of the functions of such a body and a committee was appointed to formulate plans for it. This Committee, composed of Dr. J. W. Wilce, coach of Ohio State; J. W. Heisman, coich at the University of Pennsylvania, and Major Daly will present its report to-night. There may be some argument about the detail of the report, but there Is little doubt that it will be accented, and the association wilt probably be formally launched at to-night's meeting. The general purnose of the coaches's associa tion, as explained by Major Daly, would be to control over cisi a general control over American football through appropriate machinery. Harry Dav is May Place "Int" Club In Providence PHOVIDBNCli K. I., Dec 27 A Providence club in tc International League seemed virtually assured last night, when Mayor Joseph H. Gainer announced tho receipt of a telegram from Harry Davis of Philadelphia, saying that he had secured a league franchise, that he had sulllclent finan- olal bucking to found a club hero ; and that he was already assured of a , largo part ot tho lund necessary for ' a pork. ! The announcement was u surprise In baseball circles here, since It was . generally assumed that Patsy Dono van was ready to put his Jersey City franchise Into the Providence market and. promote a team here if financial assistance was given. No Inkling of tho Davis move had previously been received, and fans and sport writers allko had looked for a blank scn&on In tho homo of the old Grays. MARYLAND TRACKS MAY BE TAXED $10,000 A DAY BALTIMORE, Dec. 27.Bace track betting. If it survives at oil, may be called upon by the coming session of tho legislature to pay ctlil mora li-juvly for existence. At present the four one mile tratfes pay the State JC.00O a dav for each day of racing at each traolc, and, In addition, they pay to tho State. 15 per cent, of their net earnings. There seems a nrospect that the tracks may be caalled upon to pay more probably tlO.000 u day. With the per diem fee revised well upward, perhaps into tlie five figures, t.ho chances seem that the IS per cent, tax may be abolished. Tho uncertainty of forecasting the amount of the 15 per cent, tax Is Illus trated by a comparison of the net earn ings of the tracks for the fall of 1920 with the estimated net earnings for the entlro year of 1921. In the fall of 1920 a racing season of sixty-nine days a total of 138.705.772 passed through the pari mutuel machines at the four tracks Official figures are awaited, which will show why tho tracks have earned but little moro in ninety-three days this year than they did lrr sixty-nine days In tho fall of 1920.
