Our one best bet Roger Bres
nahan to sigmvith the Pittsburgh
Pirates when he settles his con
tract troubles with St. Louis.
Remember tht. Several teams
are angling for the great catcher,
but indications ppint to-him signing-
with Barney Dreyfus?. With
Roger to handle the good string
of young pftchers on the Pirate
payroll the Giants will -have to
play 20 per cent bettepball to land
another pennant
Charles Murphy alleged own
er of the Cubs, is back in town,
and says he is satisfied, with the
trade which sent Tinker to Cin
cinnati for five players. Several
other owners, he adds, told him
he was getting a fortune for a
shoestring. It's a-cinch the trade
would never have been made if
(Murph hadn't believed they were
telling the truth.
Regarding Tinker, he said: "I
am glad that he' has been placed.
He deserved the promotion."
This sounds good after the way
(Murphy blocked the shift for over
a month.
Frank Chance iias telegraphed
Owner Farrell of the. Yanks that
he will ber in Chicago Thursday
to arrange terms for managing
the New York aggregation next

local theater with Blossom Seeley
in a vaudeville stunt, says unless

and Brooklyn, Murphy is trying
to separate a good man from the
St. Louis roster. He wants Slim
Sallee. Taftwanted to be presi

Jim Sheckard's days as a regu
lar on the West Side are about
over, and before game time is
called for the opening of the sea
son the veteran outfielder may be
separated from the Cub payroll.
In talking about the team's pros
pects Murphy today said Clymer,
Miller and Schulte would make a
great outfield trio. By this he in
dicated that Sheckard was not
being considered in the plans for
next year's lineup. Clymef is a
good man if his game leg can
stand the strain. Knisely, secured
in the trade for Tinker, is another
whale. He batted far above the
.300 mark during the last few
weeks of last season.
TXobert C. Zupke, coach of the
Oak Park High School football
team, has been engaged to coach
next year's eleven at the Univer

Evanston team ever had, was af
