Taylor had agreed to sen. Clcotte to

THE TIGERS' TAIL
White Sox: Trim Detroit by
8 to 4s Score. .
Chicago, June 25. The White Sox put a
crimp in the Tigers to-day by trimming
them, 8 to 4, In a game played In the
mud and rain. Fourteen thousand peo
ple braved the showers to see the bat
tle. Wlllett started oft In great form,
but was yanked when the Sox had a
batting spree which netted six runs. The
rain was falling hard when the Sox got
to Wlllett, and the wet ball hampered
both the pitcher and the Tiger fielders
Do0 White was bumped hard by the
Tigers, and was succeeded by Walsh.

trearers of the bine next year.
Donnelly, Eastern High Coach,
Signed by Maryland Aggies
Will Be Full-fledged Member of the Faculty and
Coach Baseball Nine, Also Football Eleven.
Charles F. Donnelly, who last fall gave
Eastern High School one of the best
football elevens In the history ot tho In
stitution and incidentally turned out a,
corking good baseball nine-at the Capi
tol Hill Institution this spring, goe to
the Maryland Agricultural College, this
fall to be assistant Instructor In English
and to have full charge of coaching the
Aggies' football and baseball teams.
While tha announcement comes as a
sad blow to Eastern's hopes In football
and baseball next year, It was In a
measure anticipated as the school boys
could not liope to hold such a competent
man with the limited means at their dis
posal. The Maryland Aggies are to be con
gratulated In obtaining the services of
Charley Donnelly. A position has been
created for him, and he will be a full
fledged member of the faculty, his duties
In the English department permitting
him to give the needed tune for the pur
pose of developing and coaching the base
ball nine and football eleven.
Donnelly came to "Washington from
Worcester, Mass., where he attended Holy
Cross. He was sub quarter back on the
19OT team and previously played on tho
championship Worcester Hhjh School
eleven. His football coaching dates back
to 11908 and 1S09, and every team -he
coached gave a good account of Itself.
Eastern High School will find a hard
task In obtaining & man to replace- Don

IN A NEW ROLE.

his new venture.
That Donnelly will make good at the
Maryland Agricultural College goes with
out saying, and with any kind ot material
bis eleven next fall will be heard from.
REDS SPLIT EYEN
Second Is Pitcher' Battle.
Keef e Throws It Away.
Cincinnati, Ohio, June IS. The Reds
and Cardinals broke even to-day In the
first double-header of the season on the
local grounds, Cincinnati taking the first
game by the acore of 5 to z, and St.
Louis the second, 2 to l. The field was
wet from a morning' rain and constant
showers Interrupted the pastime.
In the first game the Reds hit Sallee
freely, while Suggs pitched steady and
at times brilliant ball, giving the home
team an easy victory.
The second contest was a splendid
pitchers' battle between Keefe and
Golden. Both men were wild, but ex
tremely effective. The Reds scored In
the second on twn passes and a single
by McLean. Keefe lost his own game
In the fifth when he made a costly error
on Hbggina' bunt This mlsplay, with
a pass' and two singles, gave tne Car-
oinajs two runs and tho game. Scores

New Blood Needed, Is Cry Opinions Freely Ex'
pressed by Followers of Nationals,
By WILLIAM PEET.
The baseball fans of the Capital now
take their turn at the bat.
Letters, telephone messages, and per
sonal calls started to pour Into The Her
ald office yesterday within a few hours
after the paper was on the street.
.The question, "What is the matter
with the Washington baseball team?"
has aroused the bugs, and they propose
to voice their opinions through the me
dium of The Washington Herald.
If Manager McAleer takes the trouble
to read what the fans think of the Na
tionals he may find suggestions which
will be of value.
.Such a competent manager as Fred
Clarke, ot the Pittsburg Pirates, was
quoted in a Smoky City paper recently
as saying that he always read what the
newspapers bad to say about the Pirates,
and if he saw any advice which he con
sidered would be of benefit he adopted It
at once '
.Surely the advice offered by Washing
ton fans is good enough to help out, and
goodness knows something must be done
at once or the club stockholders will
never get that new concrete plant paid
for, and the long-suffering public has
about reached the limit of Its patience.
Attendance figures have already borne
.The majority of opinions thus far voice
the suggestion that McAleer get rid of
several of hii veterans and infuse new
blood Into the team at once.
Others are of the idea that the players
themselves are not putting forth their
best efforts, and a few declare that a new
manager is needed most of all.
The writer, some years ago, in talking
with a baseball manager of a minor
league club up North, showed the man
ager a letter from a fan demanding that
the club get a new shortstop.
The manager testily replied, "You tell
that fellow If he will go out and get me
a shortstop I will give him 1500 In cold
The fan Immediately got up on his
high horse and said, "Watch me " In
two weeks he had a shortstop, paying
the plajer's railroad fare himself from
a Western town. The boy made good
and Is In the big league to-day.
The writer happens to know that a
well-known Washlngtonlan has offered
to pay railroad fare fora first baseman
from the Pacific Coast to Washington
if McAleer will give him a trial. This
man knows a baseball player when he
sees one, but up to date it Is not re
corded that the offer has been accepted.
The opinions from several of the Dis
trict's best known fans are printed be
low: William Pert, Sportinz Editor The Waaolszton
Taking advantage of your offer to
publish criticisms ot the Nationals, I
would first suggest that a new manager
be obtained. Release every pitcher on
the team except Johnson, and trade him
If they could obtain two or three good
men for him. One star on a team does
not make it win games.
The Infield needs new material a short
stop and second baseman especially.
Schaefer has been playing good ball, but
can he continue It? The outfield seems
to be good enough. McAleer "has never
made good as a manager, and the sooner
we get a new one the better. I suggest
either Schaefer or Elberfeld for the posi
tion. I have been a loyal supporter of the
Washington baseball club for some years.
but they have got to "come across" be
fore I see them again. I am not only
expressing my own sentiments, but also
those of a majority ot the fans at the

the government that patronizes the Na

tired of this watt-tlll-next-year dope.
Give us a winning team and wearlll be

.Dear Sir Manager McAleer is hanging
onto a lot of dead timber. He needs new
blood. Schaefer, Conroy, and Gessler
have seen their best days. Outside ot
Walter Johnson, the club has no pitchers.
The only salvation Is for the team to
get new men for first, second, and right
field and four young pitchers.

Dear Sir I think the players are laying
down on Manager McAleer. If I was the
manager of the team X would put several
of them on the bench without pay. It
looks to me as If the men themselves
were not giving their best services, and
until they are brought to their senses the
team cannot hope to win many ball
games. Yours truly,

Dear Sir The Washington baseball club
lacks ginger. I h,ave witnessed nearly ev
ery game played this year, and the men
do sot seem to go about their work as a
major league club should. There Is also
need of new players, youngsters who
would develop while the. veterans are go
A man like Jesse Burkett, manager ot
a New England League club which has
won more pennants than any other team
In the circuit, could tret twice as much
work out of tne men bow under Jim Mc

Thirty-one cars started yesterday In tht.
Grand Prix for automobiles at Boulogne.
France. Bablot won the race in a Dol
age car In 7 hours, 2 minutes, and 41
seconds. Bolllot was second In a Pou
gest in 7 hours, 3 minutes, and S3 sec
onds. Thomas was third In a Dolage in
7 hours, 4 minutes, and 17 seconds. The
speed of the winner was at the rate of
51-2 miles an hour.
The Ford car, the only American car
entered, was not allowed to start as the
officials considered that It did not comply
with, the regulations of the race. The
committee said that the car was not ab
solutely a stock model and demanded
that it be loaded up to the full weight
of the others. Henri de Passe, the Ford
agent, declined to carry 400 pounds dead
weight and was compelled to withdraw.
Thirteen of the competitors finished.
There were no fatalities, though two of
the cars were smashed. The drivers were
not injured, however.
