' &: u V' w: i I e' i1 ,f, Si' if. v f; MAY PLAY NEXT SERIES IN FRANCE Organized Baseball Is Not Dead, Just Transferred Abroad Organised baseball Is not killed; It merely Is transferred to "somewhere In Franco" for tho duration of the war. Such la the expressed opinion of John Thomas Powers, organizer and first president of the late Federal League, who Is golnff to Franco with tho wdl detalled Intention of grldlronlng that fair land with baseball leagues of gradu ally Increasing Importance, from the andlots teams which practice In No Man's Land up to tho real big league champions which will settle the suprem acy on diamonds In the south of France next winter. "Tho next world's championship base ball scrips will be decided 'somewhere In Franti1,' '' snys 'ohn Thomas Powers, and while he does not go so far as to predict the exact leagues which will clash. In this classic so fur from Its na tive heath, he concedes It may lie be tween the Y. M, C. A. Leaguo leader and the K. of C. Leaguo topllner. In asmuch as he has a long record of or ganizing baseball leaguis, from Inter church up to nation-wide organizations, Jlr, Powers's prediction Is well worth considering, particularly as he adds convincing facts. Jlr. Powers Is going to France as a T. M. C. A. physical director, with spe cial attention to the organizing of base ball "over there." In addition to or ganizing the Federal League, of which he was president In 1913, he organized the Wisconsin-Illinois League, tho Ne vada State League, the Colorado-Utah Leaguo and forty local leagues In Chi cago. "My scheme Is to have a leaguo In every regiment," explained Mr. Powers. "These can bo organized by the Y. M. C. A. physical directors and by elimina tion produco their champion teams. ' The regimental champions will have contests for tho division championship and the division champions will fight for the corps championship. Eventually will come the series for the championship of the army, which will be tho same as the world's championship If baseball Is shut down In this country. All the best young players affected by the War De partment ruling will be In tho army. "With all tho best talent there and good new talent coming to tho surface we ought to havo some games. This carrying real baseball to the soldiers Isn't Just a time-killer, but a necessary measure to keep up tho morale of our boys over there Phillies Crush Pirates in First Continued from Taita One plays nigbee to Cutshawj Tearce to .uder.is.

DRIVE BALL OVER 200-YARD FENCE AT HOG ISLAND? CINCH! SAYS MAX MARSTON He and Ouimct and Guilford Sent Golf Ball Over 223 Yard Fence at Detroit Ball Grounds in Fall of 1915 By WILLIAM SOME baseball fani and a lone golfer got Into an argument the day tho big Hog Island baseball field opened for play. Standing at the home plate the eight foot fenee that mrrounds the ground seemed to be a mile nway so when the golf bug tald that a golfer could stand at the home plate and drive a ball oer the fence the baseball fans told him politely that he as crazy Hut he q not ns crazy n the followers of Connie Mack and Pat Moran think he Is The problem was put tip to me hut the baseball man who as there got his dis tances sadly befuddled for he hnld the left-field fence was 600 yards from tho plate while the center Held fence was a hundred jards further Of course there was no argument for even Jesse (ullford could not Fend a golf ball that far and there Is tint a man In tho coun try who hits It farther Later on I got In touch with the pub. Ilclty men nt the Island nnd while at first they stuck out for the a'rds they admitted later that the yards should have been feet. Pipe, Sas Marslon I asked Max MarMon about It today and he said It would be a cinch All th.it Is necessary for the publicity me-j to do is to but buy a few golf balls and I feel sure that Mnrston 111 do the rcbl, If he can find the time. Way back In 1915 they held the na tional amateur coif chjmnirauhin ..t the Country Club of Detroit, and In tho morning some of the players used tn run out to the course to s.ee the golfers in action Hughle Jennings was one of the scoffers, and the argument arose a.s to wnether the golfers rould drive a golf ball over the Detrolts' center Held fenre ftom the homo nlato. None of the ballplayers had sent the hnrsi. hide over and Hughle did not think much about the ability of th golfers 223 Yards Over Six-Foot Fence So a party was arranged for the day after tho final match, and the party was to he made up of Marston, Jerry Trov er. Francis Oulmet and Jesse Guilford, all mighty swatters. There was a record breaking crowd at the ball game," and Hughle held up the contest long enough for the experiment. Tt avers could not come, but the other three were on the spot, and that baseball crowd .sat hack and got leady to gho the golferj tho merry laugh MarMon was the first man to step to the plate, anil while tho fans got merry with much f-cofflng and hooting, Max calmly proceeded to hit the ball one mighty clout, and away It .sailed grace fully over the fenc That was enough for the fans, nnd they were quiet when Oulmet teed his ball Onco more tho ball traveled straight and true, disappearing over that fenco like a. swallow. Gull ford, tho king of long-distance hitters, was kept to the last, and Jesse put every ounce of beef into his well-timed shot. There were some youngsters In a tree thirty feet back of that center field fence. The ball cleared the fence by twenty feet, and struck tho tree on a bound, almost scaring those youngsters out of the limbs. How About It, Hog Island? Afterwards the distance was measured, and it developed that thn fence, which was six feet high, was Jut 223 yards from the home plate, ho that Clullford's ball carried about 230 yards before It hit tho earth It If. no wonder that Marston savs It will be a cinch to drive a ball from the homo plate at Hog Island over that eight-foot left-field fence. The record fungo dilve with a base ball Is that of Kd Walsh, who on Sep tember .10. 1011, drove 419 feet one-half Inch I know several golfers who have passed the seventy-year marl; who can t I?J hit a golf ball farther than that, and M thing nothing of it. Compare that with I j the record drive of Guilford at Plnehurst I 3 of 393 yards, and this drive was meas- j 3 tired Hobby Jones, who will play here EJ J-'nnirday, during the national amateur j S golf championship at Merlon, drove into g the tiap In front of tha eighth green, a m distance ot 350 ards, B City Solicitor John P Connelly vUHB shortly sail for France, where he will I & engage In Knights of Columbus work, ' ? niidjllehHsli Thm Emblem ofthm Thr'in-Ona Servic. lsnd, Sky and -S-llS?!agKf-tfgS-S VJaJei.-)-MrWWwV V , OLWitZ " .-"JjF'it XvJ -v T JF j Jprl?IJiZ-1 n3 SI U.
