give Jim Vaughn valuable assistance
this year in the southpawing, and is
giving him much personal attention.
Adams and Schorr, pitching for the
regulars, were wilder-than the claims
of a campaign manager,but Roger
made them stick to it. Each dealt
out passes liberally, forcing in runs.
The seconds won, 4 to 3.
Out on the coast the White Sox got
the exhibition season started with a
bang, the first team downing Los An
geles, 7 to 5, and the second putting
the bee on Oakland, 3 to 0.
Felch, Bromwich and Brief, the
recruits of the first line, did a nice
job of work. Pelch punched three
singles, Brief wopped a triple, and
Bromwich hung up one single, be
sides grabbing every chance at third
base. Ray S chalk topped all batters
with a triple and three singles, and
Eddie Collins knocked a triple.
Jasper, Johnson and Scott did the
pitching, and the first-named was the

.on from which to pick a third base
man, with the two left-over to fill in
as utility infielders.
The most important thing on the
Federal schedule at the present time
is eats. Admirers of the Whales put
on a big banquet at the Rienzi last
night and big doings resulted. Every
fellow who was given a chance made
William' Tin Lai.
This fellow, former captain and
shortstop of the Honolulu Chinese
team, was billed for a -try-out with
the White Sox on the Pacific coast,
but nothing has been heard of him
since the Sox went into spring camp.
The yellow man was regarded as the
star of the foreign legion, but appar
ently he gave up hope after seeing
Buck Weaver snagging grounders
between second and third,
