OTHER SPORT GOSSIP Pitcher Doc Ayers in Capital-Du mont Will Arrive Tomorrow. Comment and Notes, By WILLIAM PEET. Chick 9andil, who has been with the Nationals since Grim first took charSe of the club in 1912, was yesterday sold to the Cleveland Indians at a price reported to be 800M. This transaction makes it plain that Joe Judge will be the regular Washington first sacker during the coming season, but Griff is particularly fortunate in having on his cl'ubs verittile chap like Alva WillIams. who can put up a credita ble game on first base and who will be used there in case Judge turns out to be a "bloomer." There are -many who believe the Old Fox has made a serious blunder in dis posing of Gandil until Judge has demon strated that he is a sure enough big leaguer, but Grifm is running the ball club and he will have to shoulder the blame If It Is shown later In the season that a mistake has been made. Gandil is 7 years old. He was pur chased from Mont1al in April. 1912, join ing the Nationals in Boston during the last of the month. The coming of Gandil made the team a formidable aggregation, for Chick started to hit like a house afire. and fin ished the season %ith an average of .39.I The following year Gandil batted .31. bE1 1911 was a bad year. also the season just. pas3ed. Gandil's marks being .ZM and .258, respectively. In order to buy Gandil's release from the Montreal club in 1912 Griff was forced to pay 33.500 and turn over in players Bill Cunningham. Buck Becker and Jerry Akers. the last two named being pitchers. Gandil is at present in New Orleans -nd will start practice with the Cleveland candidates this week. . 0 0 0 Doc Avers. one of the Nationals it'hers. arrived in Washington yester <!a anml looks as if he had taken the Iest possible care of himself during the winter. Ayers will probably go to *harlottevlile with the first squad next VJ-in,'!,iay morning. Ge',rge unont. the young right hander, has written friends in the Capital that he _:11 be here tomorrow. DmUrnn was the hurier who created impression during th-* tr cnl -' th, 1:15 season and is picked i,% man- as - ire enough regular dur Ing the near approaching campaign. Ts it possible that Charles Weeghman,! new owner of th- cubs. who operat.d the Federal League club in Chicago. is trying to deceive the public In order to scare Off wealthlv men wiho might.want to start another baseball war" In a *tat-ment issued recently by Weeghman. he told of his tremendosis losseo in the Federal League venture. but the books e-the club which were taken into court during the suit instit'rtad by J. L. Sher !oek against Weebghman show the losses for 1914 were only . This is a large sum of money to drop in one Feason. but not any-where near what has heen claimed. In his recent annouincement. Weeghman evidently in ,uded the cost of his new park in the losses. He still has the park and the Clubs will play on it In the future, so th' can hardly be considered a dead loss. The figures given out by Phil Ball. in St. LTouis, also were greatly exaggerated. , rhaps this statement was also given out for the same purpose. The Yankees and Boston Braves, mc cording to a dispetch from Macon. Ga.. will be the teams to Ight it out during the next world's series. Here's the dis patch: Macon. Ga., Saturday.--According to Capt. Huston, George Stallings, manager of the Boston Braves. thinks the next world series will be between the Yankees and the Boston Braves. "He expects his Braves to win in the National League," said Huston, who met Stallings at their hunting lodge at Dover Hall. "and he told me that he figures the Yankees to have I as good a chance as any club in the American League to win the pennant. Stallings thinks we could stand a little strengthening in the catching depart ment, but that in all other respects the team is a well-balanced offensive and defensive organization. I hope that Stallings Is right. So many have praised the Yankees to me that I'm beginning to believe that we have a look in at the championship at that. Wouldn't it be great if we won? Whoopee!"

O'LONE FEATURES CLASH The Georgetown Universty basket-ball quint defeated the Gallaudet College team last night in the Ryan gymnasium in the last colleg0 game of the season. 31 to 2. One of the smallest crowds of the season was on hand to witness the game as the students were attending a debate in the college. From the first whistle, the Hilltopper. took the lead and not once during the game did the Kendall Green team prove dangerous. Towards the middle of the second period. Melles, center and one of the beat scorers of the Gallaudet team severely sprained his ankle and was forced to retire in favor of R. Wenger, Willman taking Mellis' place at center. At the end of the first half George. town held the upper hand of a % to a count, Gallaudet making but one field goal in this time. A. Wenger being the one to cage the basket toward the end of the first pe riod. From the time of the first whistle in the second half Georgetown again started things going through the wonderful work of O'Lone and Sullivan together with the guarding and passing of the other mem bers of the team, OLone getting fourteen of his team's points through the seven baskets credited to his name. Rockwell who succeeded. in caging ten of the thirteen chances at the free toss route was the star performer of the Kendall Green five and as he graduates this June, his lose will be keenly felt by all the teams at that institution.
