Earl Smith and
Jess Barnes Now
In Giants' Camp
**Hub" Pinkoson Eiitertajiis
McGraw*;* Men on Long
Fishin-s Trip
By W. J- Macbeth
OAINESVILLE, Fla.. March 23.- It
ujrc> but thc presence of the illus
trious Benjamir. Franklin Kauff and his;
blushing bnds> to make a fair field and !
favor for thc candidates of John J.:
McGraw's 101 'J challcngers for National j
Xh*e memberahip vt the early ar- j
titals was augmented this fair Sabbathl
morning by a battery pair from whom
tbe Little Napoleon cxpecta great?
things through the coming campaign.!
Jcss Barnes, already rccogniaed as one ;
0f the most formidable right-hand- ;
,rj in his league, and Catcher Earl
Smith. for ?whom McGraw paid Roches?
ter a royal ransom in cash and players,;
had their feet Ftuck under the White j
Hfluse training table for breakfast.!
Barnes, who won seven games and was :
beaten but once before joining the col-!
tra last year, returns chockful of con-1
ideucc. not to mention the proverbial!
pink. Hc is right to fighting weight,
trim as a greyhound. Smith has little
surplus flesh?just enough to keep him
boay in the promised sunshine of the
next two weeks here.
Causey Best Angler
The entertainment committee, which
i? gparing neither pains nor expense to
?how the visitors a plcasant time, gave
a fisbing party to-day at Lake Loch
loosa. In charge of head guide Hubby
Pinkoson. six touring car loads motored
ttrenty miles out to "Hub's" tishing
preserve and landed some wonderful
specimens of the linny tribe. John B.
Foster, the demon angler of the North,
with his newfangled tackle, failed to
get eten a nibble. But Cecil Algernon
Causey, who is a native of the state,
with an ordinary ox gad, landed the
priie package of the day, a seven and
a half pound bass. Before returning
the party was entertained to a fish fry,
prepared by the said "Hub." who pays
no more attention to the stings of riia
mood back rattlers and cotton mouth
mocassins than he does to mosquito
bites and who cooks quite as artfully
aj he talks. Some cook, we can testify.
The best line on his work may be illus
trated in a repetition of his tale of last
Sanda/s activity. He says he caught
?195 fish in three hours and a half and
knocked off oniy when his boat began
to sink. Which ia some fishing for a
one-armed angler.
The Giants will to-morrow unlimber
in the heaviest sort of training. Hence
forth there will be two-hour drillsboth
morning and afternoon. With few ex
ceptions, the players are in much better ?
physical condition than it has been !
enstomary heretofore for them to show ;
upon reporting. This is because they j
have been employed in useful work j
since the early close of last season. \
The advantage of such condition was ;
very evident to-day. Not a sore muscle '
wa? evidenced after yesterday's snappy
inaugural workout. Trainer'Ed. Mack- \
all. as a consequence, is wearing a ?
golden smile. For the first time'iu his :
tagand honorable career he has found ',
a training trip that has some slight
reiemblancc to a vacation instead of ;
iAt-customary drudge.
Weather Continoes Ideal
The weather continues ideal. An?
other ten days such as the last. two :
aave been and McGraw'a club should '?
he able u> give a good account of itself ;
against the Red Sox at the Tampa
training grounds of the latter.
George Gibson, manager of the To?
ronto club of the International league,
arrived this afternoon. Ile will help
coach the young battery candidates.
Benny Kauff is tbe only absentee, '
tarring Pol Perritt, and Fred Ander- !
son, of course. But until he has some '
word to the contrary, McGraw will con
tmne to regard tho veteran pitchers as I
"nold-out^" in the accepted sense of
the word. It is up to both of them to '
make the first move.

UTPHE L0ND0N TIMES" declares that in England there is a grow
I ing tendency toward Sunday sports and recreations of all sorts.
The British ex-soldicr and the British workingman have fur
nished the demand. "The Times" declares that the idea came through
the association of the British troops with the American doughboys who
spent Sunday afternoons playing baseball or watching the hundreds of
games in France and Planders. The doughboys were encouraged in this
by their officers, including their chaplains.
It is probable that by this time the opposition which was mustered
against Sunday baseball at thc Albany hearing has modilied its tone.
Certainly it seemed to an unbiassed listener at that hearing that the logic
was on the side of the proponents. The good people who went to Albany
in opposition went with the idea that they were to meet "a lot of rough
necks" who wanted to turn Sunday afternoons into a riot. Instead of
that they found that the advocates of Sunday baseball were soldiers,
friends of soldiers and men and women who understood thc army. Thoy
put the case of Sunday baseball so clearly and in such a dignified' manner
that the opposition was taken somewhat at a disadvantagc. "The London
Times" has the following to say regarding the possibilities of Sunday
sport in England:
"One legacy which the war is likely to leave us is a much wider
indulgence in Sunday athletics. Sunday baseball matches on public
grounds became a popular feature in Londoc when American troops
began to arrive on this side of the Atlantic. Now we are getting
tennis matches between Manchester and Queen's Club played on
Soldiers Want Sunday Games
"As demobilization of the armies proceeds and more men come
home from France the demand for Sunday games will increase. That,
at any rate, is the belief of many officers, and it is shared by chap?
lains who have been at the front. Sunday has been the regular day
for football matches among the troops, and English dergy have not
only refereed the games, but have taken part in them as players
with downright good will and enthusiasm. Thousands of men who
are now coming out of the army are finding Sunday dull at home.
They have learned that attendance at church service in the morning
has fitted in very well with football in the afternoon, and perhaps a
'sing-song' in the evening, and some of them are not inclined to return
to a programme which might or might not include attendance at a
place of worship, but otherwise consisted of eating, sleeping, and
loafing about.
"Sunday play, of course, has been general in certain games for
years, and is on the increase. It is common knowledge that thc golf
courses around London are more erowded on Sunday than on any
other day of the week. Tennis on private lawns, too, is played in
every suburb. About the marshes north and east of London there is
whippet racing on Sundays. The question now being asked is whether
Sunday sports are to be put on a proper footing, and what attitude
will the churches take toward any movement to enable the young
men who wish to do so to take part in games or to watch others play
them. Labor opinion favors national recreation on Sundays if it
does not involve a seven-days working week for any one engaged in
providing the recreation."
Too Many Boxing Bills
HPHE Albany Solons seem to be suffering from a rush of boxing bills to
the head. Senator Walker has just produced the third bill of the
session at the instigation of the Army, Navy and Civilian Board of Boxing
Control. This organization, in an elaborate prospectus declares its in
tention of assuming charge of boxing, amateur and professional, in all
states. The board asserts that it will clean up the game and keep it
clean. As a guarantee it shows the names of a number of admirals,
generals, governors and college professors. The names sound all right,
but the board should be taught that. in undertaking to keep the boxing
game clean it is undertaking a biggcr janitor job than Hercules found
when he took his mop and pail and started after the Augean Stables.
The board asks the New York State Legislature practically to hand
the boxing game over to its mercies. That might not be a bad idea if the
persons nominated in thc prospectus would be able to take a personal in?
terest in the game. But there will hardly be many stars and much gold
lace at the ringside when the fists begin to fly again. Also, it is doubtful
whether even the accumulated wisdom that is gathered under the high
roof of the Capitol at Albany can legislate honesty into professional
boxing. The fight game must save itself when it is reestablished in
this state.
Some of those interested are alarmed because there are too many bills
and because there seems to be too much sentiment in favor of boxing. The
bills will result in oratory, and the result may be that the struggling right
game may be talked to death. Being gassed is just as tough on bills as
it is on human beings.
Need More Tennis Courts
TTHE fact that more students are going in for sports since the war, a
consummation always desired by the National Collogiate Associa?
tion, is particularly well illustrated at Yale. A visitor to New Haven
found seventeen rowing eights practising in one day. Now comes the
report that the thirteen tennis courts at Yale are erowded all day and
that more are needed to accommodate the students who have taken
up tennis.
New tennis court3 should be provided. The old criticism of college
athletics was that sports had few active participants. The National
Collegiate Association, which was strongly under the influence of thc
army, deplored this particularly. Colonel Palmer E. Pierce declared that
college sports were an cssential factor in the preparedness scheme then
being worked out. He was frank in his criticism of college sports as
they were being conducted. I cannot remember the exact words that he
used in making the criticism, but he pointed out that at college games
there were oniy a couple of dozen active competitors, while the rest of
the student body filled the part of flabby onlookers. To make every col?
lege student an athlete was the desire of Colonel Pierce, and this senti?
ment was applauded by all thc collegiate representatives present. < Now
that the student bodies are getting that spirit every facility should be
provided to encourage it.
Yachtsmen Getting Busy
VACHTSMEN are looking forward to a brilliant season. During thc
war this sport practically was suspended. Most of tho youngcr
yachtsmen went into the naval service. Owners of power boats turned
them over to the government. The sailing boats were put out of com?
Like all of the cx-service men, the yachtsmen will come back with a
new zest for sport and recreation. The ensigns, lieutenants and com
manders who return from the "great gray fleets" will be eagcr again for
the feel of the small boat with the billowing canvas. New yachta are
being built, and men who got their taste for the sea in playing thc biggcr
game with the boats of Uncle Joaephua will turn to yachting. The white
sails will dot the waters of the Sound in greater numbers than ever
this year.
Best news of all is that thc truest of sportsmen, Sir Thomas Lipton,
is on his way to the United States with another challenge. Like all true
British sportsmen, Sir Thomas forgot all games but the great game when
the war began. Like all truo British sportsmen, he hastens to take up
the lesser game when the big game is ended.
That Wrestling Match
THE wrestling match at Madison Square Garden last Friday drew a
record crowd and a cosmopolitan one. Melodramatically, it was quite
a success. The Polo, Zbyszko, won suddenly when hc seemed defcated by
the tcrrible headlock of "Strangler" Lewis. It was a thoroughly satisfac?
tory exhibition and no suspicion can be attached to it. Wrestling pro
moters have invitcd fmspicion by their records, and people were suspicious
of thiB bout at the start, but as far as I can see there is nothing to sub
stantiate any Huspicion.
I believe that the crowd was not so much a wrestling crowd. There
were plenty of boxing fans in the Garden that night who went there
because wrestling was the nearest thing to the fight game available at
the present time. I think that the crowd at the wrestling match merely
indicatcs that the Garden will not bc big enough to hold the crowd that
will wairit to see the first boxing con test that will be staged there this year.

Frank Titterton Wim the
Time Prize After Long
and Hard Struggle
By A. C. Cavagnaro
Scenea of the days before the Euro?
pean war greet.ed the epectators wh?
attended the weekly handicap road
run of the Bronx Athletic League from
the Pastime Athletic Club yeaterday,
when the season's record pack of
thirty-two harriers competed for the
pnzes. Every club in the league was
represented by ils strongest runners
and only thrre of tne starters failcd
to complete the course.
The feature of the event was the
bitter battle among Frank Titterton,
Pastime A. C; Fred Travelena, Mo
hnwk A. C, and Joseph Losgar, St.
Anselm's A. C, the three scratch con
testants, for the honors. lt ended in
success for Titterton, when his su?
perior grit and speed enabled him to
draw away from Travelena in the last
half mile to beat him by sbt seconds.
Losgar began to fultc-r at the third
mile and raced home 17 Bcconds in the
wake of Titterton.
lian in Best Form
All three runners shcrwed their best
form. Titterton, in the main, set the
pace for his rivals, and in quick order
the other handicapped runners were
left ir. the ruck. The Pastime athlete
ran nlong at, a steady pace for the
greater part of the journey, but it was
his spasmodic ;;purts on half a dozen
occasions that took considerable speed
out of his opponents.
William Fetzer and Bert Schiavone,
both of the Mnhawk Athletic Club.
starting from the limit handicap of
4 minutes 30 seconds, fought out the
honor to lead home the field from the
outset. Fetzer gained the glory by out
spnnting Schiavone at the three and a
half mile point, to graduallv increase
his advantage thereafter to win by 100
yards. Jacob Klauss, St. Anselm's Club,
was third.
Team Fight Close
In the learn running competition an?
other close light was witnessed, with
th. Si. Anselm's Athletic Club winning
by one point from the Mohawk Indians
Si. Francis Catholic Union, represenced
by a group of novice athletos, wa< third,

Kinsella Challenges Gould

Star?Gould May G ive Covev Match
By A. C. Cavagnaro
Walter A. Kinsella. thc world pro?
fessional squash tennis und court ten?
nis champion. has sent a challenge to
Jay Gould, declaring that he is anxious
to meet the latter for the undisputed
court tennis title of the world. Gould
announeed through ihe Racquet Club
of Philadelphia last Friday, that he
stood ready to defend his honors, now
that the war has come to nn end. Kin?
sella immediately dispatched a tele?
gram to Gould in Philadelphia, naming
himself as a challenger.
Kinsella has always been eagor to
hold both the amateur and professional
court tennis championship ot the world,
but has always experienced difficulty iii
obtaining Gould's consent to meet him
in a championship tilt. The pair have
meet frequently, with Kinsella more
than winning a share of the matches.
According to the statement by Gould
he is ready to give George Covey, of
England, from whom he won the cham?
pionship in 1914, an opportunity to re
gain the honors. This match took place
in Philadelphia, and the conditions of
the match were that the second half oi'
the series should be held in England.
However, the European war soon broke
out, and the second hulf of the series
was abandoned.
However, Kinsella is hopeful that
Gould will agree to play him first. The
professipnal, in his challenge, declared i
that he was ready to abide by the con?
ditions formulatcd, which were that j
the match would be decided the best in !
thirteen sets, the first half on tn, j
courts of the Racquet Club of Phila- '<
delphia, and the second half on tbe j
challenger's courts. The first six sets,
it was BUggested, are to take place dur?
ing the first three weeks in December I
and the second half one year afterward. '
Yankees Reach Camp Ready
For Strenuous Trainiiiff
Ping Bodie Loses Weight
on Trip - Robinson
Heads Reeeption Com?
By W. O. McGeehan
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 23.?
The Yankee forces are now mobilized
for the pre-season work at this burg.
There were few absentees at the check
rollcall to-night. "Home Run" Baker
will not join until the regular season
opens. Dutch Leonard is still absent
without leave. Wilson Fewster, the
young infielder, has been given n fur
lough to visit his sick mother at Balti?
The rain which Ground Keeper Phil
Schenck has been blaming on Billy
Sunday has disappeared. The grounds
have dried out and Field Marshal Mil?
ler Huggins will lead tho troops to
work in the morning. The youngsters
are anxious to get into action.
Manager Huggins is expecting Ernie
Shore at any moment. The former Red
Sox star has not signed up yet, but it
looks as thotiph he would bo ready to
grab the fountain pen most any time
Despite the fac thnt the advance
guard from N'ew York got into Jack?
sonville after curfew time there was
quite a gathering at tho station. Uncle
Wilbert Robinson headed the reeeption
committee and hclped to unload Scout
Joe Kelly.
Bodie Loses Weight
The discmburkation of Ping Bodie
was accompanied without a mlshap.
Ping, who was placed on limited diet
by Secretary Harry Sparrow, lost ten
pounds riding through the Carolinas.
He ought to be reduced to 200 pounds
flat before the week is over.
Bob Shawke.y, who spent most of
last year as a "Goh" in the United
Staten Navy, is gradually thawing out.
He was for months in the North Sea,
and in his world's series with the navy
almost forgot that there was such a
game as baseball. Robert has a quiet
hunch that he ought to be the better
for the layofF.
The pitehlng staff of the Yankees is,
perhaps, the most formidable that has
ever been shipped South. There will
be some keen competition in this de?
partment and there will be some early
releases for those who do not Bhow
conside,rable class right at the start.
The infteld of the Yankees looks
pretty useful aa it stands. The sign
mg of Pratt completed it to the aatis
faction of the. owners and the mana?
ger. There will bo plenty of compe?
tition for the extra outfield job. Hal
lis, the young Illinois University star,
is expected to hnttlo hard for this.
Like Shawkey, Hallis ia an ex-gob, just
out of the navy. There are eleven
pitchcrs ao far, and thero may be more.
On Military Basis
The camp will be run on a military
baaia. Revellle ia aoundod at (3 a. m.
Fatigue at the ball park goea at 8. Tapa
for tho athlet.ua sound at 10, Colonel
Huaton haa aent for an ex-bugler to
aound the calla.
The firat game between the Yankee
and Brooklyn rookies will take place
this week, probably Thursday. Robbie
! has been twitting Colonel Huston on
the chances for the first game. A
couple of hats have been bct on it
already. A dinner may be bet with
, the understanding that the check will
be mailed to Harry Stevens, at New
*l ork.
The weather is sultry. The local
: propheta predict a long, torrid spell
j which ought to bake out all sore arms
and frty out Ping Bodie to the figure
of a sylph.

He then put in a claim for his old

ing an 88 out of a possible 100 targets.
In the shoot for tho ghost trophies
Dr. W. B. Short and C. L. King each

27th Division
Ties Morse at
Soccer, 2 to 2
Dry Dockers Are Forced to
Limit to Avert Defeal
by Soldiers in Brooklyn
By C. A. Lovett
Grim determination, such as that
which led to the smashing of the Hin?
denburg dcfenccs, gave the 27th
Division's champion soccer team, one
of the strongest in the A. E. F., a 2-2
tie with tho superbly trained Morse
Dry Dock eleven, strong eontendera
for the national soccer title thia sea?
son, at Morse Field, Brooklyn, yester?
day afternoon.
It was a remarkably interesting
battle, with the aeasoned and confi
dent shipmenders regarding their op
ponents rather too lightly at the outset,
but soon changing their views and in
the end rather fortunate to escape de
feat. At half-time the soldiers led
hy 2-1, and the only goal of the second
period, shot out of the warmest scrim
mage of the game, cvened matters and
aavad the day for the Brooklyn team,
which is to meet Paterson F. C. at
Newark Federal League ball park next
Sunday in the Eastern National Cup
The crack eleven of "0"Ryan's Rough
necks'' was not at full strength and
in the last two months, during their
preparation for the return home, tho
shunting through camps leading to
embarkation and finally their transat
alntic passage, it has*had almost BO
practice. But the team made a gam?
showing, displaying the grit and dar
mg that turned the tables on the Hun
in Northern France.
Start Is Delayed
Just as in the bigger game overseas,
Uncle Sam's doughboys were slow in
starting, but once at it they made ui?
for lost time and the Morse ttars aooa
realized a real battle was in store for
them. The 27th Division aggregatiou
was somewhat delayed in arriving
from Camp Mills, but a rousing reeep?
tion was given them by tho thousand*
of fans who had waited patiently in
the stands of the big athletic lield. The
Morse band of sixty pieces escorted tha
soldiers from their point of detraining.
It was nearly 4 o'clock when Team,
Captain Miles Whalen, of ihe ](J2d
Supply Train, well known as a mem?
ber of the Longfellows team of Brook?
lyn before he turned to eoldiering, led
his players onto the field. Thev wore a
regulation soccer uniform except that
the O. D. shirt of the army displaced
the usual jersey.
E. P. Morse, head of the big dry
docks, kickcd off. The soldiers were
first to force a corner. but the Morse
last hne of defence withstood the at?
tack and after fifteen minutes, Morgan
iormer Fall River Rovor star, found
an opening and gave the home team
the tirst goal. Ten minutes later R
Playfair. of Port Chester and the 102d
Ammumtion Train, took a sweet pass
from T. Whalen, brother of the cap?
tain, and equalized. After another ten
minutes' aggressiveness T. Whalen
negotiated a brilliant run through
centre and when near the goal passed
beautifully to Orr, erstwhile Clan Mar
Donald crack, and Orr put the 27th in
front, 2 to 1.
After the change of ends the sol?
diers had to kick against thc strong
wind, but they carried the light and
Morse was extended to the limit to
even matters. Poillon, 102d Supplv
Irain, made a series of remarkabl'e
saves, two of them whi?? prone on
the ground. Again when he was pros
trate the mix-up was too much for him
and Holgate. dashing in from thr right
wing, shot tho tieing goal. Corporal
Jack Dye, another one-time Clan Mac
Donald satellite, and M. Whalen and
Cooney were brilliant on defence.
