North Augusta. S. C. March 11.?The old hookworm which hit
dei? little burg tome weeks ago with tpringtime jumped into the path
way of the Nationals' training today, when Coach Nick Altrock and
th? tafe-and-tane trainer, Mike Martin, were compelled to postpone
the morning drill.
This practice had been scheduled for 10 o'clock, but after the
athlete? had reported at the ArigwaU ball park it was found that the
plumber? had failed to take advantage of the double-time on Sunday
aad that the shower bath* had not been erected. v
This wat not the only set-back, for through some mistake between
Trainer Martin and Harry Harper the coal had not anrived at the
park. The Cherrydale mayor immediately got busy, and after issuing
the call for the boy? to. report back at 1 p. m., soon had plumbers
on hadH to complete the job. *
* The coal was backed in shortly before noon hour. Suit* were
d??trrbuted and in a jiffy the athlete? were on the field. Nothing but
light work waa indulged in, the boy? going through the course ofj
wanning up and fielding bunt?, after which each was compelled
to take a hike around the park. ? \
Manager Griffith ha? issued order? from the Capital that both
morning and evening practice ?hall be held. So far these young
players are going at their work with plenty of "pep" and vim, but
k it known fact that in a day or two there will be a number of

The real feature of the opening day's
work and what will, no doubt, have
the golden ling In the news line to
Washington fandom, is the fact that
Joe Judge showed no signs of his re

Shaw and Uncle Nick, and handled a
few Infield throws at the Initial sack.
Trainer Martin has worked all the
stiffness out of the seeker's left ankle.,

will be holding down the cushion when

"Wheel Barrow" Waldbauer. the big
Richmond youngster, is the first crip
ple of the season, as he twisted his
left ankle during the bunting drill to
day, but Trainer Martin claims there
is nothing serious.
Mrs. Harper, who la the blushing
bride of the Hampton Terrace Annex,
is something of a "Molly BJursted" at
tbe tennis game. She haa already
taken the number of most of the boys

Commission Estimates from
5(3,000 to 70,000 Horse

Baseball will be played on an exten
sive scale In the army and navy train
ing campa this year. There are more
than 1.500,000 men under military train
ing*? the country todsy, and the com
missions on training camp activities of
the War and Navy Departments which
have the supervision of cports in the
army cantonments and naval stations
want every single on? of these men
to play baseball. And It is likely every
one will, for what average Amerlcarn
can resist the call of the diamond?
This means that more baseball will be
played this summer than ever before.
The season is already under way in
most of the camps. The ??Idlers and
sailora waited for no official inaugu
ration, and the snow had barely left
the ground before games were In prog
ress on camp athletic fields and Pa
rade grounds. In fact. In places fav
ored with a mild climate the men have
played throughout the winter.
Plans for the organization of camp
teams and camp leagues are being for
mulated by Dr. Joseph A. Raycroft,
arenerai director of athletics in the
camp?, under the supervision of the
training camp commission. Before an
other month passes the soldiers will
have their contpany. regimental and
divisional teams, and these teams in
turn will form company aad regimen
tal leagues. No divisional leagues are
contemplated because of the scattered
locations of most of the cantonments,
but where traveling conditions permit
inter-camp games will be arranged.
Similar plana for the naval station?
are being made by Walter Camp, who
Is general director of naval athletics.
Each station will have a representa
tive team, which will be selected by
elimination, and win play out sched
ules that are being drawn up with
amateur, professional snd college
nine? from adjacent cities. It Is also
possible that the sailors may play
teams from nearby army camps and
engage in Interstation contests, as th?
stations are much nearer one anoth
er than the army cantonments

60,000 balls will be used up "offidal

at by estimating that there are more
than 4,000 companies in training In

this number by twelve, which Is the

men seemed to take keener enjoy

put on an organised basis. At one

Although never a whirlwind a? a

a valuable mound man during the

was probably one of the beat of the
group of pitchers which relied for its
success upon the ability to make the
batter hit the ball into th* air?easy
outs for fielders. His best major
league year probably was In 1906 when,
with Bill Dineen and the late Rube
Waddell. he kept the St. Loui? Ameri

fag end of the season. During that
year Powell was the iron m?n of the

The next day Waddell was knocked out

the ring weighing around Ito pounds.
which would mean he would only have
to concede some 15 to 30 pounds to a
fellow like Jack Dempeey.
A? a matter of fact, while chat
ting at the training ouarfers yes
terday astille Tom waa going through
hi? daily wnrk. Manager Kane aald
he would leave it to the local fans
to decide next Wednesday what
chance they think Tom would have
against men like Danpeey. Battling
Isevtnsky and Charley Weinert. Kane
Is pleased at the fact that Pilent
Martin looms up as such s strong
opponent on Wednesday. It is Just
what the wrptern manager wants,
for he says It will bring out every
thing that Tom has In hM boxing
repertoire, and he adds that If this
does not stir up the fans to ?ome
real enthusiasm nothing any boxer
can offer will. Kane says that Tom
has never appeared any place where
the boxing follower? hare not clam
ored for him to return, and he adds
that Inai Thursday after the lO-round
er with George Chip, Tom wa? given
a most wonderful ovation. In that
setto rtiip was practically toyed with
throughout by the St. Paul battler
and Kane staid he never aaw his
charge work In better fashion than
he did then.
The Id-round special bout between
Billy Whelan, also of St. Paul, and
a stable mate of Gibbons, and Happy
Divis promises to furnish plenty of
action. W*helan has agreed to stop
Happy Davis in six rounds or hand
Happy $10 for each additional round.
Baltimore folks realise at a glance
what a Job Whelsn has undertaken,
for Davis hss met the hest in the
came and never been stopped. Happy
may have passed the zenith of hi?
career, but he is r-till a mighty tough
boy. a? evidenced by his victory
over Young Gilley last Thursday
night Ct the Folly Theater. Whelan
made a most lmpressiv? ?hearing
?gainst Allie Nack. a heavier boy.
and he made good all the nice things
that had been said previously about
