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.

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 a speech. 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, MiMftMttftftttMiiMMrtttttMttaiiMi .
