loy, Is one of the best featherweights In
these United States. At present he's the
champion, of the Northwest.
Lemon who was born In Johnstown.
Pu,r 22 years ngo, realized at an early
ago that the ttamo of Lemon Kegs was
something of a. handicap. He realized
It even more when ho broke Into the
ring- Kama In 1910, Just about the time
when the word "lemon" wag used to de
scribe Joke fighters, Joke ball players and
other kinds of false alarms In the athletic
world.
"They calt me 'Lemon' and I nm
'Lemon,' " mused Lemon Kegg. "Thero'B
HO denying that. But 1 don't think I am a
'lemon' aa a fighter. But when some
pedplo yell 'lemon' nt mo and I don't
get sore about It, those who don't know
that my name Is 'Lemon' will think they
mean that I'm a lemon fighter."
. Then It was that (Lomon Kegg looked over a
lot of fancy names that one could tnKe upon
one's Belt for prize tin purposes, end Anally
clioso the name Ttoser O'Malley.

"Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat"
(With Apologies.)
Oilmorc was a hustler, otye without
fatigue;
ailmore once decided to start another
Icgauc;
Soon tho startled magnates cut in with
'their wail
And they hollered when their stars began
to cry for kale
CHORUS:
"Say Jim, say Jim, say Jim, you're rock
ing the boat;
The good old-fashioned days are gone for
ever; The magnate's on the blow,
He hasn't got a show,
Where all the player thinks about is how
to grab the dough;
Say Jim, say Jim, say Jim, you're rocking
the boat;
H'c'ue got to pump the water out to float;
So kindly lav off ralsinell
While ive still have a club to sell.
Say Jim, say Jim, say Jim, you're rock
ing the boat."
There Is also the dread possibllty that
we may be forced to play a round or so
ffolf under a blistering Southern sun. A
tough existence? Nothing short of It.
The Red vs. the White
Is the Indian a better all-around, on an
average, than the pale face? Jim Thorpe
is certainly the best all-around athlete In
baseball. And Chief Bender Isn't far away
from second choice. Charles Albert, the
Chippewa pitcher. Is a fine ball player, a
fine trap shooter and a good golfer, In
dulging In three varieties of sport to while
away a drifting year. Mathewson was n
football player, and is still quite a pitcher
and something of a golfer. Wagner and a
few others go In for basketball plus the
national frolic But are there two pale
faces In the game who aro as good at as
many sports as Thorpe and Bender, who
are out In front of the Meld?
In the spring a livelier iris comes upon
the gaunt White Hope;
In the spring a fuller crimson spreads
across the Orandolddope.
ALL PHILS SIGNED UP
EXCEPT CY MARSHALL
Pat Moran Indifferent About
Services of Twirler Banks
on Cuban Shortstop.
The last of the Phllly players waylteard
from today. Eyery man of tht squad la
now signed with the exception of Pitcher
Cy 'Marshall. The contract mailed on
February 1 to Marshall was returned un
signed, and Pat Moran, who arrived here
this morning, will not, offer him another.
Not only will Marshall's demands for
an Increase In salary be Ignored, but his
original contract will not be mailed to
him again. If he Joins the Phillies In Bt.
Petersburg he will make the Journey at
his own expense and then arrange to sign
after he gets there,
Manager Moran today expressed the
hope that Selgle, the young Cuban short
stop recommended by Ed Wolf, would
make good. "I have never seen Belglo
play,'' said Pat, "but If the reports are
true that I hear he must be a good ball
player, I understand that he Is as fast
as lightning, and If he hit ,365 In the Cuban
League he ought to do well with us. Of
course, there Is a marked difference In
the pitching between that league and
the National, but they have some
good pitching at that have not yet
signed Selgle, but if be shows me In Bt
Petersburg that be ia a capable man we
wll) bring him back here for a. thorough
tryput."
A letter from Scout Neal today an
nounced that the Phillies would be quar
tered at ths Hotel Scool. Prom their
hostelry tha Phillies will have only a
15-mlnute walk to the ball park and will
bo the same distance from ths centre of
the city. Neal also stated in "hla letter
that tha second squad of Phillies would
play tha Birmingham club at Orlando on
March 19 and Jl. On these dates the reg
ular squad will be playing the Havana
Beds in 8t. Petersburg. There Is, accord'
ing to Neal, the largest crowd of tour
ists in the winter resort that has ever
been known. This Is good news for the
Phils.
There is still doubt If foe Phillies will
plsy ths Cutis mors than twb games, al
though Neat is trying to arrange mora
date. It appears that while the Phillies
wre, waiting; for the National Commis
sion's percntMion to play ths tames with

TRAIL ROCKY ROAD IN
JAUNT PENNANTWARD
Lobert, Magee and Dooin
Gone, Pat Moran Must
Build Fast to Make
Showing Even Equal to
1914 Failure.
As far as the prophetic eye can reach
the path ahead of the Phillies this sea
Bon appears to be Btrewn with a vege
tntlon that cannot be mistaken for roses.
In fact, the 1915 season for the local Na
tional Leaguers has a gloomy aspect, far
more so than last season.
The reason for the muiky outlook Is
the loss of the Hana Lobert, Sherwood
Magee and Charley Dooln. Opinion dif
fers on the Dooln question. Many think
a wle move was made when the peppery,
red-haired leader was deposed; many
others think that, with a free rein, Dooln
would have been In tho running with his
club next year. At any rate, Dooln was
and Is one of the best catchers In the
game, and his loss will be felt In that
department, despite tho fact that Kllllfer,
Hums nnd Adams form an excellent re
ceiving trio.
As to the disposition of Lobert and
Magee, there are few fnns and friends
of the Phillies who do not feel that the
localB have been stung. The Phillies got,
no doubt, all that these players were
worth so fur ns the monetary consider
ations aro concerned. But It Is harder
for a club to buy good players now than
It Is to make $3000 or J6000. The trade
whereby the heavy-hitting Magee was
transferred to the champion Braves far a
sum of money and Inflelder Dugey was
particularly displeasing to local bugs.
They had hoped, at least, that Whltted
and Tyler would come here. But neither
was willing. Stnlllngs thereforo sent a
man to Moran whom he would probably
have released, anyway,
Hans Lobert was traded to the Giants
for Catcher JJack Adams, Milton Stock
and Al Demaree. At best Adams will
be a third-string catcher. Stock may
make a utility position, but it Is hardly
probable that he will land a regular
berth on the Phillies Infield so long as
the other on the roster remain healthy,
happy and signed. Demaree will be of
some assistance to the Phillies' hurling
staff, but he will not offset the loss of
Lobert, who was not only a consistent
hitter, but n splendid lead-oft man and
the fastest base runner In the world.
Nlehoff, who comes from Cincinnati In
tho Dooln deal, should bo able to play a
capable game at second base. If he does,
Byrne will be shifted to third, auto
matically annullng any benefit that
might have accrued by the acquisition
of Stock.
The pitching department will be about
the same as It was last season. Alexan
der will lead the parade as a matter of
course. Then there are Baumgartner and
Blxey, tha two southpaws. The other
members of the staff aro Mayer, Tlncup,
Mattlson, Jacobs and Marshall. The out
field will be considerably weaker than It
was last season. In the first place Beats
Becker does not approach Magee in all
round value". Then Qavvy Cravath will
scarcely do so well this year aa he did
lust.

PENN BASEBALL TEAMS
LINE UP FOR TRIAL CONTEST
B. Squad Gets Away 6 to 3 in Spirited
Battle.
Pennsylvania's baseball men resumed
practice this afternoon after a day's va
cation. Coach Koy Thomas, after ths
preliminaries, picked two teams and put
them throuKh a stiff S-lnnlns; game. It
was a nip and tuck affair, because the
veterans had been evenly distributed be
tween the two teams. Not until the 6th
Inning could Team B get a lead, and
then 3 runs turned the tide In Us favor.
Coach Thomas again used two pitchers
for each side. Fred Vreeland, the port
Bide fUnsrer, did good work for Team A
while he waa In the box Wallace, who
pitched the last half of the sjame for
Team 8. held his opponents down In
splendid shape. JubI now Vreeland and
Wallace are doing the best pitching.
The teams lined up as follows:

PENN BOATMEN IN TRIALS
Dick Marcy Again at Post New
Fresh Trackman.
Six crows went on the river from tho
University of Pennsylvania boathouse
this afternoon for tho third day's prac
tice of the seaaoru. They were tho varsity,
eight, junior and third varsity crews, a
freshmnn eight nnd two mixed eights,
made up of the overflow.
Lllck Marcy, tho regular varsity stroke,
who was absent from the practice yes
terday, was back today and took his
place In the varsity boat.'
Pennsylvania's freshman track team
was boosted today by tho appearance
of Elmer Peoples, who holds the strength
test record for this claBS.Peoples played
guard on the freshman eleven last fall,
but Is a good hammer thrower nlso, and
will concentrate on that event for this
spring.
Detroit Releases Outfielder
DETnOlT. Feb. 23. - Fred Nicholson,
outfielder, waB released to the San An
tonio team, of tho Texas League, today
by the Detroit American League club.
Nicholson's release cuts the Tiger squad
to 29 players. Jacobson, obtained from
Chattanooga, is the only recruit out
fielder still on the list and he is expected
to mako good. For tho first time In
years Detroit has only one first baBeman
George Burns and he Is not worrying
about getting nosed out.
News comes from Havana that the
authorities have "forced" Jack Johnson
to a fight with Sam McVey In the Cuban
city and that as a result the Johnson
Wlllardbatt!e is postponed. Slarvellous
days these, -when Governments compel
prlie fights under threat of deportation I
Of course, the thousands of fan- who
have Journeyed or are Journeying to Jua
rez are disappointed at the latest turn In
events. They fully expected the battle
would be staged precisely as scheduled.
There Is never any hitch In pugilistic con
tests. Promoters never fall to give the
rlngslders Just what they promise.
Up to the Golfers
Are the professional golfers changing
with the times or ore the times changing
with the pro golferaT In the past a win
ter period waa more or less a dreaded
season. Now, however, all that the aver
age professional has to do Is to go South,
where he can play to his heart's, content
There waa a time when the rigid golfing
law would havo been violated If tha pror
fesslonal left the shadow of his work
bench. Not so now, Judging from tho
number of men now on tour.
"Why didn't John McOraw pick up this
shortstop (Selgel) If he is such a won
der? McOraw has been In Havana some
time?!" TJiIs question was propounded; by
a local baseball bug. We refuse to answer
yet, apropos of nothing In particular; the
ponies have been running In Havana, If
we have been advised correctly,
Ben Tlncup, who Uvea In Oklahoma,
wrote to Bill 8,hettBllna asking that be
be allowed to go to 6t. Petersburg with
the boat party, by way cf Philadelphia,
and New York, which Is about the same
thins as roakinr a Journey from hero to;
Pittsburgh by way of AJsaGe.LornUne.
