FROM EARNING PlK-MONEY r - I Least, That Is Edict Issued by Ban Johnson Baseball Czar Says He Will Not Permit Collins to Write News Articles. The old question of preventing or try -in to prevent bnseball playersJrom writ Inff for newspapers Is again' up before Er IP the moguls of organized baseball, it -as recently Mated by "Ban" Johnson that ho would not permit "Eddie" Col lins to write after lie became ft member of the White Sox clan. Whether John son was inspired to this stand by the recent declaration of the Chicago Til buiio or whether tho Tribune's announce uunt was tho result ot a conference with Johnson Is not known. At any rate, tho Chicago daily's announcement was cer tainly an Innovation. The Trlbuno announced that tho main reason for Collins leaving the Athletics was not a matter of money, but uccalleo his writing has caused friction In the ranks ot the White Elephants. The paper requested that In order to preservo harmony among the Chicago Americans, Collins ought to refrain from doing any literary work. This at tide, which wus ad dressed to Collins and Comlskcy, Rtated that Chicago papers had men employed to wrlto basebnll and that these publications did not dcslro any of Collins' or any other player's arti cle for their dally sporting pages, tt further stated that, with Collins In tho lineup, the White Sox had a good chnnco to win tho American League flag and therefore Collins should hcCd the volco of the papers, which ox pressed the sentiment of the public, by not doing any writing ns long as ho remained with tho White Sox. JUst what Collins thinks of this un usual public communication cannot bo learned. "LMdle" Is now In North Caro lina on a hunting expedition with "Jack" 33unn. Whether ho Is willing to abldo by the decision of tho Trlbuno and Pan Johnson Is problematical. Tho chances .ro that If there Is really a concerted ' esffort being made to pfEvent Collins writ ing. It would have been far better to ha e privately taken up the matter with him Instead hf publicly demanding that he re tire from the Journalistic field. OX SUGAn's'XcCOUNT John Harvard's shado was stalking o'er the campus-ot tho collcgo That ho founded many years ago and Hlth his name endowed To hammer Into highbrow heads some odds and ends of knowledge; And tho spirit's step was halting and ' his ghostly head was bowed. sin atmospheric tear rolled down his non existent check. His spooky bones were shaken by n fleeting, phantom sigh; His occult throat was choked with sobs and so he could not speak. He was lachrymose and gloomy and we'll tell tho reason why. John Harvard's ghost was rather proud of Harvard's football team; Ho Knew Its men wero heroes and he knew It had the steam; VBut woo wus his, alack, alasi one au tumn day It came to pass That Harvard, boasting of Its class, put up a plaintive scream. In honor-stricken accents Harvard raised a noisy wall. Havlnsr reached tho sad conclusion that " a microbe could not fall To mako a. husky player sick, tho cul tured Harvard men were quick to ' make a loud and forceful kick- Against the drinking pall. John Harvard's ghost could stand for this; ho had no word of blame. He thought the private drinking cup a necessary shame; But now "Doc" Wiley forward jumps end says that lots of sugar lumps the players need to fight the mumps; John Harvard's ghost Is lame. And so he ssatks the campus and sheds his ghostly tears, The while his phantom heart Is filled with terrifying fears That soma day Harvard's football team wilt ban all players rough, Torsako the toughened pigskin and use a fat cream puff. Although the air was quite chilly In the flctnlly ot Concourse Lake this morning, a. number of skaters had good cause to re member that old song "Stars of the Sum mer Night.' j If Ote Yankee owners succeed In dis posing ot the club at their own price, J500.000. a new record will be established, according to a local baseball man, "They ay that the Eddie Collins sale was the biggest yet recorded," said this fan. "but If the Yanks made their proposed trans fer the Collins deal will fade Into com parative Insignificance." When asked Just what he meant the same gentleman re plied: "Well, you pea the Yankees have ac grounds, no manager and no ball club. As far as I can see they have only Fritz ilaleel. The sale of the-Yankees to my mind means the sale of Afaisel and little else. Hence even If Collins brought JS0.00O, that Is a small figure compared to 1500, COO." And the fan wasn't far wrong at that Two soccer teams recently played a Same of real football. Anent this athletic Innovation, we suggest that Penn's chess team and Southern High's checker crew engage In nimortal combat on the Ping mit field. j(No hard leather or paplerj autahe padtBff allowed). .Doctor Ttttey suggests that football qaen curry a lump of sugar with them In every game Possibly his Idea Is to make every performer on the gridiron what la Vulgarly known as a. "sweet player." 5.1 Hi "Bddls" Collins was recently discussing athletics in general, when, as usual, the fr)vffation drifted backward as far as the world's series or an.

If this were England Instead of Amer ica Miller HuRglns, who has signed a two year contract to pilot tho St. Louis Car dinals, would probably bo decorated with a Victoria Cross. When Mack gathers together his clan for spring training about February 10 there will bo 10 of his 1913 world's chanr plons missing. Those who were on the championship roll that bent tho Giants far the highest baseball honors who will no longer bo numbered among the White Elephants are Houck, urown, llender, Coombs, Plank, pitchers; Collins, Orr, Lavan, Inflclders; Daley and "Danny Murphy, outfielders. There may bo others, too, who will not bo with the Ath letics who havo not yet shifted their post ttou In the baseball firmament, but tha 10 named, with the possible exception ot Orr, who may be recalled from the ra clflc Coast League, are tos,t to Phlladcl phla for all time. Harvard has decided that It Is best not to take a chano on the University of Michigan next season. Tho scant, hard earned victory of the Crimson ocr tho Mnlzo and Gold frightened the Cambridge clan to a certain extent and tho chances are that they will not lisle a defeat nt the hands of their Wrntorn rlvnta Iti 1913. Tlowevcr, Michigan Is apt to take an other big Eastern opponent. The Wohcr incs desired to take on Yale, but the Blue was unwilling, phibably becauso Athletla Director Itarthelmc, of Michigan, wished to make a return date. It mny bo that Princeton will take n "flyer" at Michigan, hut again tho question ot a return con test to be -staged in Ann Arbor In 1918 may prevent tlieso elevens fiom clashing next fall. Yost Is very anxious to get one of the "Dig Three" on his schedule. His team of 1914 was a great disappoint ment to the followers of tho sport In Michigan and he would Ilka to redeem tho past season by a ictory over Har vard, Yalo or Princeton. During a search through a maze of ex changes wo came across tho following Item, reprinted In the Chicago Tribune: STP.ANGER THAN FICTION. (Tho author of tho following In closed a money orddr for 12.

If all the baseballs which are hit Into the stand and over the stand here during a season could be recovered enough would bo saved to pay tho salary of any New York player except Christy Mathenson. The Giants paid somewhat more than HOW last year and the expenses of tho Yankees was almost as much, making a total of J80O0 in round numbers. The balls are sold to tho clubs at 315 a dozen. The Boston Braves spent even more. The expense In their case was traced to tho short right field fence. Charles Som ers, of Cleveland, reports a wastage ot 33763, and Schuyler Brltton had to write a check for S2395 for the 193 dozen balls that wero used by the Cardinals last year. And yet some of the fans are Indignant when the special police make attempts to recover balls which have been hit Into tho crowd. WABD FHOM MISSOURI" CHICAGO. Dee. 18.

By JOSEPH KALBFUS The fifth article of a series by Secre tary Joseph Knlbfus, of the Pennsylvania Stato Gamo Commission, Is very Inter esting, and as follows: "The deer season should begin after tho close of the bird season, say December 1, ending December 15, both days Incluslte. "Through tho selection of this tlmo as the open season for deer In this State, tho malo will have been given a chnnco to pass through the titling stason un harmed and be given the full opportunity to serve the purpose of his creation. "Tho male deer during the rutting sea son becomes almost Insane. Ills eyes bulge, his blood becomes heated, his neck swells and he Is really not fit for food, and is more easily killed than at other times." "After the amative season has passed, ha returns to normal condition, and makes greater return In weight as well as flaor to the one who takes him. "At this time tho leaves will be oft tho trees, hunters can see what they aro shooting at.Hml tha danger to human life will bo ro duced'to a minimum. Deer can also see the hunter at a distance. Bird hunters will be out of the woods. During this tlm we fre quently hav falling weather, and the danger of forest fires will bs lowered. During this tlm In the higher altitudes we frequently have snows, deer can be tracked and the ma Jorlty of those wounded ba secured. Viola tors of tha law can the more readily be taken and punished,, and deer killed during this time will keep better than If killed earlier In the season, "Somo win no doubt object to this season for deer upon the ground that the weather Is likely to b oold and unfitted for standing on watches. This ts perhaps true. Many argue that the driving ot deer should be eliminated. Tho Qamo Commission contends ths law In tends to protect the gamo that It may In crease to be taken by hunters, and feeia that drltlns deer In a reasonable way la not objectionable. "Another objection will ba that mors deer will bo killed became ot the ability o track In the snow. In my opinion, any gain to ths hunter because or snow will bo mora than overbalanced by lb wariness of the deer at this time as compared with that of tha rutting seaaon, and the further fact that the deer a well as the hunter has a better chance to sea what la going on around htm."

SLOW BOUT AT BROADWAY Slegnl and Gallrtgber Put Up Unin teresting' Fight. "Lew" Siegal could have fought, but wouldnit. and "iilcV.y" Gallagher would he fought, but couldn't. Ths consequence was that the wind-up at the Broadweg A. C last ntglit waa not very exciting, except at Intervals when Slegel would wake up and reveal some of his old-time dash and skill. Gallagher forced ma tiers from the start and being In better condlUon than Siegal was able to Isnd a number of good hard body punchea unu get away without a counter. In the fourth round Siegal got started and showed his true boxing form. II smashed Gallagher all around the ring and outboxed and outalugged "Mickey" all through tha seaalon. In the fifth Gallagher camo beck strong and had the better of tha aesalon. but in ths alxth Slegsl again took matters In charge snd forced Onllsgher to cover up and hold until ths last minute, when they both fought like wild eats until the belL Gallagher's aggressiveness and blcgel's lack of condition gained tha verdict for Gallagher. ...... . . In tho first half of the wind-up. "Johnny" Mealy, of Bouthwark, defeated "Jo" O'Keete, of Gray's Kerry. In a hard contest.

In addition to having o, pentathlon con test nt tho University of Pennsylvania re lay carnival next April tho Quaker man agement, According to nn announcement mado today, will havo four other Impor tant features for tho first day of tho meet. Thoy aro two medley relay rnces, a hop-atcp-nnd-Jump and throwing tho M-pound weight. Tho medley relays promlao to bo ex tremely Interesting. The first will bo for sprinters and middle distance runnonf, and Is patterned nfter a similar event nt tho Olymplo Games, held lq London in I80S. Thrnrst tworunnera run 220 yanl each, tho third min runs 410 ynrds nnd tho fourth 8S0 yards. The aefiond medley relay provides that tho first man shall run 410 yards, the second ESO yards, the third three-quarters of a. mllo and tho last a mile, Tho beauty of these odd relays Is that tho samo colleges which competes In them can nlso compete In tho thrco Intorool leglato championship relays at one, two and four miles the next day. Tills Is pos slblo becauso not moro than ono man In tho Saturday relays would havo been obliged to run in tha medley relay tho day before. It la further felt that tho medley relay at tho odd distances wilt permit many teams to compete In them who aro unabla to toko part In the regular championship! relays for lack of men strong enough at tho samo distance, but who will find tho medley races Just fitted to their teams. Tho short medley relay, whoso full dis tance Is a mile, was first held at London In 1903, and was won by the American team, comprising Hamilton, of Kentucky, and Cartmcll, of Pennsylvania, who ran tho first two 220-yard distances; Taylor, of Pennsylvania, who ran the quarter mllo, and Mel Sheppard, who ran the half mllo. This event was not on tho Olymplo program at Stockholm in 1912, while ths distance relay has never been run any whero before. Its total distance will bo two and one-half miles. Tho running hop, step and Jump and tho ES-pound weight nro new events for collcgo men, but should provo popular. Two other features for Triday's program will bo tho Interacademlc nnd Philadel phia High School championships, whllo another event open to local high schools other than West Philadelphia, Central and Northeast, and called the "Philadelphia suburban high school championship," will be put on tho program.
