(Special to The Republican)
TEMPE, April 14. From reports
received here Monday and yesterday
as well as several telegrams it ap
pears that Big Griffen will have a
try-out with, the White Sox. The
lelegram received Monday inquired
as to his whereabouts and. the sender
seemed rather in a hurry sending a
duplicate. Griffen is in Evanston,
Illinois, at present' and his address
was made known to the inquiring
parties. It is the general opinion
that the White Sox manager has his
eye on t him and is going to give
him a try-out. The news was glad
ly received in baseball circles here
whl many of his admirers are confi
dent that he will make good. For
me past several weeks Griffen has
been with the Milwaukee club at
Owensboro, Kentucky, leaving there
with them and' going over into Illi
nois. Xo definite word has been received
regarding an offer from the White
Sox but a letter is expected very

Erwin George Baker put-putted into
town yesterday. He started to go to
Albuquerque, which is in New Mexico,
but he only got to within a few
varongs of the charming chilly little
village of Springerville. ' j
"It was no use,' 'he said, in explain-
ing his failure to make Albuquerque,
"I am not Dr. Cook. I cannot deceive
a geographical society. The. rigors of
an Arctic elime were too much for
me. And, besides, I had covered
about all the road I really cared to
Baker was p'athfinding for his com
ing transcontinental motorcycle dash.
He left Phoenix early Sunday morn
ing. In eleven hours and thirty min-
utes he made 236 mues to a camp
on the other side of Fort Apache. In
describing his trip he said:
"By George, that was some trip. I
never knew there was so much coun
try up there. Although I was dressed
for winter and had big gloves, a
sweater and a raincoat, I was cold.
The scenery is grand, much better
than I imagined. The other time I
went through I was going so fast I
did not see much of the country. But
his time I went slow and kept a
lookout for things to see and tell
about when I got back.
"The measly little rise on Fish
f'reek hill is nothing compared to
that blasted pull out of Black River
canyon. Why, there was a stretch of
nine miles where it was so steep and
so narrow and so rough that it is al
most impossible to get through. Hon
est, I didn't think a motorcycle could
make it until I got through.
"I drifted along right lively the first
day and got into the high hills, where
it was 'almighty cold. I came to a
forest service camp and staj-edV. all
night with the men. They told me not
to try to get through because of the
snow and the sloppy roads, so I slept
there, and the next morning went up
on the hilltops and looked around.
There were miles and miles of coun
try .without .a sign of life. Just big
trees and rocks. The burned stumps
looked like woolly bears, " ready : to
jump out at you. I tramped on her
tail all through that country to get
back where there were folks.
. "When I start through, there next
month, I will go through without 'any
trouble. I know where all the bad
spots are and all I will need Is a
good supply of the right, kind of gas
and oiL I arranged along the route
for the best fuel for my trip." ' "-'
On telling the story on the streets
yesterday. Baker was confronted with
incredulous smiles. Just to imagine
people sitting in a log cabin shiver
ing around a ' sheet iron stove that
was doing its level best to heat up
the interior with its rosy glow! And
here, two hundred short miles away,
such summery weather!
Baker will leave San Diego on May
3 or thereabouts to try to demolish
the 20-day record from the Pacific to
the Atlantic. 1

This it a solemn pledge to the
Fane of Phoenix.
The Arizona Republican wilt en
deavor to give the cleanest cut
most accurate baseball reports
ever read in an Arizona newspaper
during the year to come. Basing
its news on the reports of the As
sociated Press, this paper will con
tinue to fill its place in the lives
of the followers of the great nation
al game giving fair views and first
news of everything of interest.
There are now three "big"
leagues in the east. The fact that
25,000 people saw the opening game
between Baltimore and Brooklyn in
the Federal league Monday, inci
cates that a great advance is going
to be made in the organized as
well as in the outlaw branches of
the game.
National, .American, Federal,
Coast, Western, American Associa
tion. Those are the names of the
leagues The Republican will cover.
The league doings will be featured
in the order named. The sport
editor believes that the cosmopoli
tan population of Phoenix warrants
the use of full reports on the three
most prominent leagues, the two
majors and the Federal. He thinks
Phoenix fans will agree with him
in his way of lining up the or
ganizations. The Republican wishes every fan
a happy, hearty, healthy season of
sport, and hopes that the compre
hensive baseball reports will please
all its many readers

Events Contemplated
Phoenix; horse fanciers desiring to
do something to make the 1014 edi-
tion of the Aztec Sun Fete a little
more memorable have decided to
stage a race matinee at the state
fair track Sunday. J. C. Adams and
his cohorts got together and without
much preliminary hullabaloo stuck
some blue show cards around and
about.. The idea conveyed by these
posters was that there will be enter
tainment for the lover of horseflesh
at the state fair ' grounds Sunday
The fair commission was agreeable
to the arrangement, so the race is
on. Officials have been appointed as
Starter J. Adams.
Judges C. B. Wood, L. D. Welch,
J. L. Lambert.
Timers Under Ed Ames.
A new wrinkle, in race rules will
prevail, in 'that every heat will con

for some of the shortcomings due to ,
a lack of time for preparation.

We maintain stoutly that there are

entertain the readers of the paper,
that this clever young woman so

she was going to say some of those
