Tomorrow morning the Cubs will
be in their training camp at Tampa,
and, according to his reported
plans, Joe Tinker will have the men
out exercising on a real diamond in
the afternoon. This plan is liable to
a change, however, and actual work
will not be taken up before Wednes
day. Tomorrow will be devoted to get
ting settled and to short walks for
stretching the legs of the athletes.
Of course, we will get a flock of .re
ports about the prowess of the re
cruits and about how they are mak
'ing the veterans take to the cellars,
but this will be only the pre-season
Displacing any of the Cub regu
slars will be a manful task and one not
Uikely to be accomplished by any of
the youngsters who are candidates.
Mulligan may land a utility berth to
start the season, but he will not be
i an infield regular at the first belL
The same goes for Alex McCarthy
and Charley Pechous, the Tribune
But either Mulligan or McCarthy
has a chance of landing something
regular before the end of the season
if they do not fail on the training
trip. Tinker's keystone performers.
Hike Doolan and Steve Yerkes, are
both aging, and either may have to
take a short vacation at any time
during the campaign.
The outfielders are all veterans but
Pete Allison, who goes with the Cubs
each spring, and Pete will not break
through this year. He has harder
competition than ever before. Behind
the bat Archer and Fisher are sure,
and the pitching staff is made up of

matter of conditioning, and not one
of discovery.
On their da luxe special the ath
letes are ch. ring a gay time, but they
will pay up for it in hard work before
the week is out.
Joe Benz and Jim Scott are exercis
ing mightily at Mineral Wells, Tex.,
and Manager Rowland will have two
pitchers ready to take up active work
when the White Sox open the season.
Joe and Jim are bewailing the fact
that they haven't a catcher to work,
with them, but it is just as well. They
are reducing their weight with no
danger to their arms and are boiling
out under a hot sun.
This season neither Cubs or Sox
have a hold-out, which is a good
Special trains will leave Northwest
ern and St. Paul depots at 6:30 this
evening for Milwaukee, where Ad
Wolgast and Freddie Welsh are due
for a ten-round bout
Welsh should win by a good mar
gin, of course, but the champion is a
deceptive person and may pull one of
his punk dancing exhibitions, in
which event the rugged Wolgast
would get a victory. What such a
verdict would be worth to the Cadil
lac man is something else again.
Ad is through as a championship
possibility and is about ready to re
cognize that fact He isfetill a willing
fighter, however, and has a large fol
