Harper would not talk on the subject of hia contract, but d'd state that he wis well satisfied with the figures which were handed him by the local club. It is reported that Harper will work oo a bonus propositon this season, and whatever cut he was given in his salary can easily be -nid-j up hy the large bonus which the Old Fox |3 handing out, providing Harper come? through with a stated amount of victories. The Hackensack hurler claims to be _in great shape and itatea that he be lieva that 1918 season will be tha best one of hia career.

Although >he Doctor got off to a bad start he came through with a rush at the end of the season and received a pretty fat purse. The moguls of the baseball world deserted Washington early last night having completed their business with the Internal Revenue Office. The American and National league committees laid their plans for col lecting the tax this summer be fore Commissioner Roper. They were compelled to make these sug gestions in writing.

Huggins gave in ex change for these players. Pitchers Shocker, and Cullop. Catcher Nuna- | maker and In fielders Gedeon and Maisel. along with a cash considera-1 tlon. Pratt has always been rated upon the stars of the American League and ahouid help the Yankees considerably. Though Pratt hit only .247 last season, ho normally is a .280 hitter. One of the things greatly in his favor is that he la an athlete who is in the game every day, and during his big league career has been practically immune from Injury, He had a sprained ankle last season, the first ailment to keep him out of the game in his entire baseball career. During the five pre vious yeara he missed few innings in St. Louis. The following figures show ) what Pratt has accomplished in St. i Louis during his big league career: T<*r- G. AR K. H. 8.1.

Major League Clubs Likely to Re lease "Ivory Hunters." Chicago, Jan. 22.?Many scouts for' the National and American League I clubs are likely to be without employ- ] ment next season unless a majority j of the minor leagues decide to con tinue in the game, it was said by club owners here today. It was pointed out that up to this time none of the club owners In the two major leagues had renewed a I contract with a scout, although a few 1 have contracts which hold over. It was estimated that if scouts are dispensed, with the saving to the two leagues would be in the neighborhood of 1100.000. The Detroit club will do little scout in* this year. It Is reported that Jimmy Burke, who coached the pitch en last year, will not be back, and that "Wild Bill" Donovan, former manager of the New York Americans, will be signed to replace Burke. Donovan was Detroit's star pitcher for several years. Chaiey ts. Hommejr. New York. Jan. 22.?A nrwtch was a. ranged today between Packey Hom nsey, the game east side light-weight, aad George Chaney, of Baltimore, who has many knockouts on hia list. They will exchange punches in a fif teen-round bout, to a decision before the Baltimore A. C. of Baltimore, on 'he night of January 30. This will be their fourth meeting, and as their previous bouts were all hotly contest ed, they ought to furnish a great bat tle. Lawier to Traa Red Sox.

Barnard, of the Cleveland Indiana announced today that "Bobby" Roth, out fielder, might be turned over to the St. Louis Browns. Terms of a deal said to be pending with the St Louis club were not given out. ANOTHER BIG DEAL IS MADE , Pratt and Plank Traded to Yankees for Five Players and Money. | New York, Jan. 22.?Another big deal was today added to the already long string of trades and sales that have | followed each other in llghtnlng>ap 1 idity for the last two months and broken all records of previous years. Seven players were involved in the deal which will send the veteran pitcher, Eddie Flank, and Second Baseman Dell Pratt, of the St. Louis Browns to the-Tankees. Catcher Les lie Nunamaker, Pitchers Shock and Cullop and Infielders Frits Maisel and ! Joe Gedeon will transfer their alle giance ' o the Browns. Col. Jacob Rup pert also contributed a sum of money | to land the two stars, the exact amount of which is not definitely known. It has been known for some time that Miller Huggins, new manager of the Yankees, was angling for the sec ond sacker, but the deal bringing Plank to New York came as a sur prise to the baseball world. The vet eran recently announced that he would be back in the box hurling the ball when the season opened. Plank left the Browns last season while they were on a tour of the East, return ing to his home in Gettysburg, and at that time a report was given out that he had retired from the diamond. The annexation of the two stars will again put the Yankees in the race for the pennant. With Pratt on second, the infield will be completely rounded out. No one will dispute Flank's ability to do credit to any team. He has been one of the best pitchers in the major leagues for the past sixteen years. Pratt probably welcomed his trans fer from the Browns. At least Phil | Ball, president of the Browns, wel comed it. When things were going bad for the Browns last season Ball is said to have accused some of his I players of "laying down on him." I Pratt and Johnny Lavan brought dam age suits against him for slander. Pratt's batting will be a valuable j asset to the New York club. He is i normally a .300 hitter, but his real j value is not expressed by these fig-! ures?he is one of the best long-dis-j tance hitters in the American League. j Eddie Plank was one of Connie j Mack's invincibles. He played with the Athletics from 1901 until the win ter of 1915, when he was uncondition-, ally released by Mack because he was dickering with the Federals. He j pitched in the Federals in 1915 and1 then went to St. Louis. Frit* Maisel came to the Yankees from the Baltimore club of the Inter national League. He ranked as the best base-runner in the American League in 1914 and pulled a batting average of .281 the next season. Nun amaker came to New York by the waiver route. Cullop and Gedeon were purchased from the Houston club | early in 1916. 8hocter is a spitball artist.

St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 2.2?Branch Rickey, of the Cards, announced yes terday that he had received a tel egram announcing the signing of Parker Trombly, the star hurler of Lehigh University. President Ric key said he could not confirm the signing of the collegian, but declar ed he had an agent in the East who had been trying to obtain the youngster's signature to a contract for a long time. The Cardinals. Rickey said, were after Trombly last summer, but at that time the pitcher was determined not to en ter professional ball. Rickey said he now has information that Twom bly has changed his mind and is willing to enter the professional ranks. Twombly, who is a right hander, was one of the leading col lege pitchers of the country last season. Philadelphia Boat Postponed.

Coach John O'Reilly will have his quint intact nnd the Blue and Gray expect to give the mid dies a great battle at Dalghren Hall. Capt. McNulty, who recently took the aviation examination, will be with the club and will jump center. Bobby Olone and Freddy Fees will look out for the forward Jobs, while Finnegan and Lonschak will play the guard po sitions. ? ? The middle's line-up will, no doubt, start like that which won from the Crescent Athletic team of New York last Saturday. Coach Billy I^ush, of the Navy five, is blessed with having | plenty of good substitute material and j this may prove a big factor in the ? result. Quite a number of the followers of the Hilltoppers will make the trip to the little Maryland town today to I cheer the Blue and Gray on. Navy j has always been Georgetown's great- j est rival at the floor game, and al- j though the Hilltoppers have not been I beaten this season, their most ardent ^pporters are not looking for victory, but are confident that the Hilltoppers will force the middies to the limit. ?

MATTY IS CAMP i CHECKERCHAMP Pilot of the Cincinnati Reds Shows Sammies a Few Moves at Sheridan. Camp Sheridan. Ala., Jan. 21 ? If Christy Matthew3on had not been a great baseball pitcher he might have become checker champion of the j world. This is only one of Matty's attain- I ments outside baseball, but it Is one j of his favorites and he spends much . time during the winter months pond- . ering over moves with the beat check er players he can find as opponents. I When Matty heard of a big checker ? tournament to be started among the 1 Sammies at Camp Sheridan, Mont gomery, Ala., he immediately made arrangements to go to Montgomery to direct the affair. Since his arrival here he has become the biggest figure in camp. ? Matty has found some able oppon ents,here, among them Private Charles ! E. Johnson, of the 14Sth Ambulance j Company, who didn't know who his J wizard opponent was until after the j match. When told afterward he had been defeated by the great Matty he grasp- i ed the hand of the Cincinnati man- j ager-and said: "I've heard of you ever since I was 1 a kid, but I never thought I'd have a chance to talk to you. This is my re- ! ward for giving up my girl and en- ] listing. Had my picture snapped with the greatest pitcher of them all. I guess I'm satisfied."

GANS GREATER THAN LEONARD \ ______ Light-weight Must Come Some to Be Equal of Negro Battler. Enthusiastic followers of Benny Leonard's career as a boxer are In clined to be a trifle too optimistic concerning his ability. Ha la being hailed as the greatest light-weight alnce Gana and ranked with the great negro, with L*vlgne and with the other greats of the 1 past generation. Any comparison of the boxers of today and thoae of yesterday must of course be somewhat out of fo cus. Unless two men are In the ring together it is pretty hard to tell a whole lot about their respec tive abilities, providing they are of anywaya near the same caliber. But even at that It Is going a trifle too far to compare Leonard today with Lavigne. Gans or Frank Erne at their beat. This trio combined all that la great In fighting. They could hit. bo* or a tall. They knew every trick of the game. They were game. They were as good over the 40 round route as In a short bout. They gave away weight and fought out of their class. Leonard has shown only a few of these ring accomplishments. He can hit. There is no question about that. There haa perhaps been no harder hitter since Aurelllo Her-1 tea. He Is a good boxer, as shown ijy the ease with which he defeated j those master boxers, Johnny Kil-; bane and Freddie Welsh. Leonard is still very young. Per iaps when he has the experience of Gans he will prove the greatest lightweight of all time. But it ia a question of whether he will ever show the gameness shown by Gans when the latter took a ter I rifle battering from the rushing, tearing Nelson in 42 rounds; or the | gameness and endurance -which j caused Lavigne to give away ! weight and go out of his claas to 1 meet and defeat the greatest wel I ter-weight of all times, Joe Wol ' cott, or the cleverness of Kid Griffo, whose all-round work astonished all the boxers of his day. But so far as late champions are concerned. Leonard Is undoubtedly ' supreme. It would be unfair to him I to place him in the same class with a Ritchie or a Welsh. A. AND N.

Cornell Leads Rivals In Winning Regattas New York. Jan. 22. ? Cornell has a long lead over its rivals in the number of intercollegiate regattas won. I The Ithacans have had almost a monopoly of honors at Pough 1 keepsie. Since 1?00 the sway of Cornell has seldom been broken. I The Ithacans have won eleven of I the varsity races in that time, j Syracuse has won four, Penn one I and .Columbia one. Columbia s victory in 1914 was the first at i poughkeepsie for the Blue and White, and the second in the hls-i I tory of the regatta. The Morn ingside Heights students won the j feature race when the events were held at Saratoga. Georgetown, which formerly was represented at Poughkeepsie by a crew, has not taken part in the j races there since 1907. The Hill toppers never won a varsity event on the Hudson, but in 1903 they finished second to Cornell, defeat ' ins Wisconsin, Penn and Columbia in that order, lh 19?*> they finished third to Cornell and Syracuse, the latter crew beating them. The regatta for 191S has not yet been officially called off and no action to this end will be taken until the sentiment of the colleges likely to row is obtained. Mr. Mapes' reasons for feeling doubt ful about the holding of the re gatta are based upon the expense involved more than upon anything else. He believes all the colleges interested in the sport will prefer to row upon home waters. May But Spit ball. New fork. Jan. 21?Reports from the Kast have it that the National League moguls when they meet In February may put something over In the way of adoption of a rule against the spit ball. The agitation was started a year ago. and the Tewr magnates have discussed it pro and con for months. They are said to be coming around to the opinion that some new pitching restrictions will increase batting and make National league games more attractive to the fans. If one or two magnates can be won over the spitball in the Na tional League is pretty sure to go. Good Newt for Tifert. Chicago, Jan. 22. ? Announcement from St. Louis that Southpaw Carl Wellman will not be available for service next year, having failed to re cover from a surgical operation for removal of a diseased kidney, is good news, in a way, for Detroit Tigers, who have found Weilman one of their jinxes.
