James Callahan of White Sox
and Charles Murphy of Cubs,
well-known Irish orators, contin
ued their controversy that grew
out of differences in training
methods yesterday. Both gents
spilled some wit after they had
indulged in a few hours' thought.
Murphy "I don't care to en
ter into further controversy with
Mr. Callahan on the proper way
to train. I believe the White Sox
ball club knows how to train him
self. Big Ed Walsh has been
pitching long enough to know
what is good for him."
After Callahan had considered
the foregoing from all angles and
read a couple of almanacs full of
jokes, he came back with the fol
lowing :
"I see Murphy says he refuses
to start discussion with Comis-
key's hired man, but will debate
with Commy himself. That ends
matters, as I know Comiskey will
not argue with Taft's hired man.
I am glad that Murphy admits
the proper rating of the Cubs and
Sox, and acknowledges that one
of my men is worth 25 of his."
For retiring persons who won't
"enter into a discussion" that is
a fair day's work. Both will make
more statements as soon as they
think of something to say.
But what the fans want to
know ahout while all this talk is
being swapped, is how the players
are lining up for next year.
Hrary Lord sent his signed
contract to the South Side offices
yesterday. The third basing out
fielder has been taking things
easy during the winter and de
clares he is in fine condition. This
is the usual cry, but it is true in
Lord's case, as the captain knows
the value of clean living in his
business. He came in for a lot of
panning by the left field bleacher
ites last season that was not de
served. The garden was a new
position to him, and adjusting
Ed Walsh.
himself to conditions had natural
effect on his batting. Starting the
year as a recognized inhabitant
of the rhubarbs, Lord should be
"there" when the campaign
opens. In past seasons he has
shown his batting eye was clear,
and he is a fixture.
Larry Cheney is still a hold
out today. Murphy sticks to the
statement he made yesterday,
that Cheney would be traded if
he could get some club to pay him
the salary he demanded: That is,
if the club angling for Larry
would hand the Cubs something
