Breivogel Appointed New Manager of Laurel Track. ft Baltimore. March 3.?Even though Col. Matt J Winn will not he in charge of the Laurel racetrack this year, there will be no change from the old order of things, for Harry F. Bretvogel, for many years assistant t? <.\>lonel Winn. will have the position of manager, writes John I. Day tn the Jfew York Telegraph. The fact that Breivogel is to be manager of the Laurel track prac tically has been settled, according to one of the stockholders In the Mary? land Fair Association, which owns ti.r- racin; plant. Since th? announce ment that Colonel Winn had been made general manager of all the Ken tucky tracks there have been rumors that Christopher Fttxjcerald. now pre siding in the stand at Havana, would be given charge, but James Butler. one of the largest stockholders at Laurel, requested that Breivoget. who waa chief assistant to Colonel Winn. be given the post, and it Is practically certain that the position in his. Brelvogei has been the chief aid of Col. Winn si'nty the latter became so act tret ? interested at Churchill Downs, Juanes. Empir*? City and Laurel, and s thoroughly in touch with every de 'ail of the mutuel plants and other thin** pertaining to the conduct of ..iriou" race courses. "fltatle I naturally would like to \a\-e?

GOOD MATERIAL AVAILABLE FOR SPRING RACING AT BOWIE Baltimore, March 28?Indication! seem to be that there will be plenty of rood ridine; material available for th? Bowie meeting, which opens next Tuesday at that race course. With I the close of the winter racing at New. Orleans a few weeks ago most I of the riders who took part in thoso meetings and who did not go to Hot ? Springs came North to get Into shape ? for the opening of the spring season in the E*wt at the Bowie course. They have been busy galloping horses for quite awhile ami will be in first class riding shape by opening day. In addition to these, many well i known Jockeys who last year were ! inducted Into army service on ac I count of the war have been released and expect to resume riding at Bowie. Jimmie Butwel'.. who until he went into the army last year stood well up In the list of winning riders, is j at Bowie every day shaping up. But ' well was released from the army a few weeks ago and will do most of the riding for Hddie McBride. th*; local sportsman. While in the army Butwell kept himself in fair shape and did not take on a great deal of flesh.

Hj. Fishing By Dick Peed The back-flare of winter, or we might say. the ground hog's de light, has in all probability killed all chances of fishing for the next three or four days and scotched ? n*any a plan well laid for tomorrow. I The fierce northwest wind lias blown almost all semblance of tide and a good portion of the water ciut of the river and It will be several days before the tides will become normal or the condition of the water fit for fishing except for cat fish. However, local sporting goods houses have blood-worms and if you are eager enough to try a forlorn hope, go to It. Dale Sheriff and Benedict Kirsch, two printer-anglers, were among the early birds of perch fishermen on Wednesday afternoon. They caught a string of more than thirty perch of fair ?Ixe, fishing from a boat Just below Fletcher's. Every angler who Indulges In the ? pursuit of bojis should Join the Po tomac Angler's Association. Th? In itiation fee Is but $1 and If the alms of the new organization are followed out there will be ten baas In the Po tomac and Its tributaries where now there Is one. Monday will be the last day for legally taking bass until Memorial Day. Be a true sport and obey the law. Raymond Streeter, 630 E street south west, made an auspicious entry tor the Atlas Sporting Goods Houae prize lor big-mouth bass last Wednesday. He caught two bass, casting live bait from the wall of the Tidal Basin. The largest fiah weighed 5'?. pounds, and a second one, 3?4 Word comes from Benedict that hard heads have already appeared there and are being caught In net?. How ever, we do not vouch for the authen ticity of the story and only give It tor what it Is worth to you. AI. Ford, avant-courrier of tho I Shakespeare Manufacturing Company. Kalamasoo, Mich., makers of flsh I ing tackle, was in town two or three i days this week visiting the trade and making some .lew friends among the Washington fishermen. Mr. Ford of fers one of the finest split bamboo rods made by his company for the largest small-mouth baas caught be tween the opening of the season on Memorial Day and November 15. To become a contestant for this valua ble prize your fish must be seen and weighed by a representative of The Washington Herald. Contest ants will be confined to Washington lans or residents within twenty-flve miles of the District of Columbia. H. H. Jetferies caught a string of Mississippi catfish while fishing from one of the piers of the long bridge last Tuesdav. There were no whales in the catch, but the lot weighed forty ! five pounds. Russell O. Beane, chief statistician at the Government Printing office. tried his luck casting a -marra h? ?'? Tidal Basin one day in the early mart ot the week. He landed i..i?e ...-? bass. Charlie Holbrook ?s on a ten-day ? leave of absence, eight of which he I proposes upending fishing for perch. The perch season will, no doubt, be much earlier in the District this year | than usual. pro\1dii>g the condition or I the water Is elea?. The movement of perch up the various fresh water streams for the purpose of depositing their cgVm depends both upon the warmth and the clearness of the wa ter. In the upper stream of the Po tomac no Ice or snow of any conse quence has forrned during the winter. and the smaller mountain streams are comparatively clear end "lusually warm for this time of the year. While the run of perch is on in the Potomac, the best locations for fish ing easily reached by boat or street car will be found between Georgetown and the Chain Bridge. Very few perch are caught from the shore, and I those always of the small variety. I The most successful flsh from a boat : anchored generally near the channel, I flatting with line sufficiently weighted to carry* it to the bed of the river. On account of the rocky bottom of the river bed. sinkers, lines and hooks are frequently lost in one day's fishing. This may be over come to some extent by tying a cot ton string* or other easily broken string of about one foot in length on the end of the line; then fasten the sinker on this line .with the snooded perch hooks adjusted on the line proper, one at the end of the Une'and the other about eighteen inches above. With this arrange ment of hooks and sinker in case of entanglement usually the sinker alone is lost. It Is by no means unusual to catch two good-sized perch at one time and with a limber rod and light line one may experience the thrill simi lar to catching the more game and livelier fish. At times the larger perch will take small minnows, al though the best bait Is the common angle worm or blood-worm, which are sold by the majority of dealers in Ashing tackle and sporting goods. Too large a bait should not be used; a piece of blood worm that covers two-thirds of a perch hook being sufficient. If one does not meet with a catch within half an hour after an choring. It is a good plan to move elsewhere and hunt the flsh as they swim in large schools. When the fisherman locates one of the schools he is assured of lively sport. My experience has been that the perch move with the incoming tide, and the best catches are made when the tide is coming in or at ita height. Inexperienced boatmen should use caution In anchoring or flshingr in the swift water near the Chain Bridge, as the water is very deep and with a powerful under current. Carelessness in dropping the anchor In the boat may spring a leak or knock a board from the bottom of the boat, which would be very dangerous to one not ex pert In swimming. Now for Some Good Batebafl. The Teddy Bear baseball team has organized and la preparing to give Washington a chance to have a good semi-pro team as other cities have. ? ' The business manager has alreadv begun to book dates out of town with fast semi-pro teams, so they can afford the Washington colored baseball fans some bang-up base ball. The manager expects to have about twenty-five candidates out next Sunday for a light workout, and thereafter they will report upon the announcing of the regular prac tice days. Would like to book games with some fast teams. Ad dress mall to Thomas Fella. 82? ?. H. avenue. PORTSIDER PHILPOT MAY JOIN NATIONALS' PITCHING STAFF Southpaw Is Student' At University of Geor gia, Graduating in June, and Then Wants to Play Professional Ball. By JOHN A. DUGAN. North Augusta, S.C., March 28.?Although Manager Griffith I has stated that he is well satisfied with his assortment of pitching ?talent that are now attempting to land tegular berths with the I Nationals, he is not overlooking any opportunities at grabbln.: ?promising material. Griff has been tipped off by many friends here on a promising left-handed hurler who is pastiming with the Uni versity of Georgia Club at Athens, Ga. This youngster who is well over six feet in height and who weighs close to the two-century mark is Phillip T. Philpot, the mainstay of the University staff. This is his final year at Georgia and as he is anxious to take a shot at the professional game, Griff will send Uncle Nick Altrock to Athens next week to take a slant at this new phenomenon of the Southern worljl and should Uncle Nick pass on him as being O. K. he will no doubt join the club after school closes in Tune. rhilpot comes highly recommended and Griff does not desire to lo?? a chance of collaring* a southpaw that could help Harry Harper's port wi?e ?department. Thompson -jives every promis? of landing a berth, a* he is hustling all the time, but his aize and weight may count against him in the long season grind. The Foxy Pilot admitted today he did not intend to use any one minor league club as his farming grounds this season. Ever since Griff has been at the helm of Washington Club the Minneapolis club of the American Association, haa been farming grounds, but Griff stated that when the time came for cutting loose his youngsters for more seasoning, that he would send them to the eluba in any of the minor leagues that would make the player the beat offer. But camouflaged behind Griff's statement was a hint that Wildfire Trank Schulte would be given the first opportunity to make a ?election from the rookie?, so it is an easy bet now that the lineup of Btnghamton club of the In ternational league will have some what of a likeness to Griff's Tanigan tribe. Sine? the Southern League has finally anticipated that they will get busy this season, the tip is out that many of the pilots of the Dixie league are already scouting- through the training campa of the major league teams and a visit is expe?t | ed here at any time. As Griffa tribe will not start inter-club games un til tomorrow afternoon no visitors are expected before the middle of next week, but Griff admits that he does not care to do any business with the Southern Leagr? cluba and ft ia an assured fact that Capital City fane will be given a chance to watch Griff's youngsters in action before he starts wielding the prun ing knife. Every player, of the squad is an xious for the start of the Inter-club games as the same routine of field ing", batting and throwing haa now become more In the line of work Today's Line-Up for Interdub Ball Game Regulars.
