TEMPE, April 26. With the
strongest line-up of (Tie season Abe t
Lukiri Is today journeying to Fhoe
nix with his baseball nine to take
the Red Socks to the capitol city to
a good clean trimming. Abe Is con
fident of victory and says it is only
a matter of the score now, whether
he will run it up big or let the
Phoenix nine off easy.
He is adding some new material
to his line up that will make the
public sit up and take notice. Their
names he will announce later but it
Is enough that they can play ball
and that some fast.
Abe claims to have the best pitcher
in the state in the person of Fred
Nettle. Nettle can surely twirl the
pill and has some smoke. Lukin
disagrees with The Republican in
its article giving Harris of Globe
credit as the best pitcher in Arizona.
Harris struck out nineteen men and
allowed only two hits, but Nettle
went one better. He struck out nine
teen men and allowed no hits during
the entire game. Lukin says he will
show the other teams of the league
what it means to have a good twirl
cr in the line up.
Cattle Ready
Castle anounces that his Red Sox
are ready to dispute this nanny ac
quiring business of Abe Lukin's. He
has a Boston outfield, a Philadelphia I
infield, and some pitchers who have
been so good that they can't be
classed by any ordinary standards.
"Kern" Warren is playing second
base for the Sox this day. Warren
is from the Senators of last season,
the High school and al the amateur
teams of the city. He is hitting
well, and is there with the pick up
and shoot stuff.

An Ad i os Interview
With Speed D. Baker
(By Saliie Jacobs)
It's too bad to hurt yourfeclings my
dears but you're not good sports. You
are not educated up to the racing game
as they are back east. When Mr.
Speed-Demon Baker told me how lack
ing we were in appreciation I felt so
dreadfully about it that he tactfully
tried to shift the blame to the men
who he said wouldn't hang together or
work in harmony. I had only heard
politicians spoken of in that manner
and was surprised to hear that cyclists
and other people were not always con
genial and held different viewpoints.
This great cyclist says the game needs
working up here in phoenix'and since
there's no school of cycling in Arizona,
I suppose we'll all have to take a course
by mail. Imagine it will take a long
time to complete the study for though
Mr. Speed-Demon Baker has an M. A.
degree he didn't teach me very much
in one hour's conversation.
Quite confidentially I don't mind telling
you, I did not want to meet him but
Dolly was insistent and has a way
about making one do things.
It seemed such a stupendous task to
try to talk to a man who has won seven
national medals and sixty-eight tro
phies when you don't even know why
is a motorcycle?
It was most embarrassing I'm sure
Mr. Speed-Demon Baker understood
my shyness and to put me at my ease
began to tell me something about hlm
Belf. Wasn't it lovely and kind of him
to overlook my stupidity and diffidence
for I had only stammered.
"You-er-er" when he took his cue
and continued for the remainder of the

There Was Not So Much Baseball as
Circus at Grant Park in Prac
tice Game Yesterday
A report from the south part of town
said that there was a baseball game
at Grant park yesterday, between tho
Indian School and the Senators. On
the testimony of the baseball report
er, The Republican wishes to deny
the rumor officially, without reserve.
There was, however, a pretty vaude
ville, in which tumbling, juggling,
clowning, and other circus-like
stunts were pulled off.
There were flashes of real baseball,
especially while the Indians were
ahead between the first and the fifth
innings, and the Solons were pulling
along trying to even it up. Short
stop Brown made a couple of really
I wonderful stops and throws, only to
nave some misguiueu, im&picn:ru skuu
at the other end spoil a perfectly
good put out. Vukku, the Indian
third baseman, is a real ball player.
In amateur ball, they do not field
much better than he does.
From a strictly baseball standpoint,
Barrett, the Phoenix pitcher, was
rotten; really, he was only economi
cal. He is to open the firing on the
Jewels this afternoon at Mesa.
Arres, the boy wonder of the In
dian School was good, but not steady
enough. He will certainly develop,
that young Brave. He already has
the head, and only needs control and
speed. His bends are snappy and

Barrett and Brown pitched and Jen

Austin were the Indian battery.
The Phoenix Phan returned. He
rtmarked on his arrival that Phoenix
looks much as it used to do, but that
it hadn't acquired that baseball pol
ish that Chicago posesses. For, be
it known, the Phan has been away
in the east for all of a month.
The first thing the Phan did was
to look up the Sport Editor and in
quire where the next baseball game
was to be played.
"Mesa is going to play Phoenix
over there, and Tempe is coming
I here to play the Red Sox at Grant
park, tomorrow in the afternoon
plied he of the sport desk.
"What's the fare to Mesa," in
quired the Phoenix Phan, and the
sport editor didn't know. ,
"Well, I'm going anyway, even if
it costs me all of twenty-five cents.
I have been reading your bum stuff
about Barret and the rest of the thin
gray line of heroes. And I want to
know what makes you write that
way. So I am going over there to
see what this guy's got. If he is as
good as you said he is, he ought to
put the Jewels on the trail to the
bench in one, two, three order, after
their disastrous trip to Globe."
afternoon "I-I-l".
He is so magnificently sure of him
self that it is not at all surprising that
he is never nervous in a race. He
doesn't carry a rabbit's foot but he
wouldn't tell about his good luck charm
and for such a nice young man I think
his sentiment about this is selfish but
he says "It loses its value if you tell.
If you've got anything good keep it,"
whatever it is, it is serving its purpose
for he has never had a "spill". That
means "flop" he said and then I
thought I'd better not question him
about the word because he may have
been trying to avoid explanations.
He has been in more races than any
man. he says, over six hundred and won
more than half of them. He's taken
part in all the biggest events staged in
America and Canada and these record
and endurance contests have made him
quite a hero. When he takes long trips
his motorcycle looks like a flying suit
case with its labels of the different
cities and when he stops, crowds con
gregate and cheer him. Oh it must be
lovely to be lionized: And how grati
fying- to the people who do the lioniz
ing for Mr. Speed-Demon Baker does
not affect boredom like many of our
celebrities but likes it in a delightfully
modest way.
Once he took a tremendously long
trip. I've forgotten just where, but he
had to cross the ocean. I asked him if
he went on his motorcycle and he
seemed quite disturbed for the moment,
but when he recovered be said "no"
because his machine didn't have cork
tires. Now isn't that a snlendid idea?
I hope he invents those tires, it seems
like an awfully good thing to me. and
not any more improbable than Oh well,
telephones and wireless snd tango. At
any rate, we will hear of Mr. Speed-Demon
Baker again. He is determined to
break the twenty-day, nine hour, one
minute record from San Diego to New
Tork which will make him very famous
though I think he'd prefer to ship his
motorcycle and go on the Limited.
Ilageman Practices for
National Gas Conserva
tion Trial to Be Held
Simultaneously in Many
Cities on May 1
Now we are going to push on the
slashboard and make ourselves just
as light as feathers to help George
Hageman win some of that fame for
long distance gallon gas consumption
Friday. You see, it is Franklin trial
day all over the United States, when
175 dealers will put cars on the
roads, each with one gallon of gas
in the fuel tank and one determined
but light handed driver in the seat.
Mr. Cate and I will go along with
Herbert Welles to see that he drives
juit as many miles as his speed
ometer says, and that he gets all
the drive out of every atom of gaso:
line in his tank.
Before the start, City Sealer of
Weiehts and Measures Joseph P.
Kehoe will place one of his care- j
fully measured gallons of medium
test gasoline in a small auxilliary
tank to be fixed to one of the lamp
brackets and connected with the car
buretor. The start will be made Fri
day morning from in front of The
Republican office and the ear will
run around a roughly circular course
of about thirty miles and return to
its starting point. The speedometer
will be checked with the
mileage. When the car gives a. tu
bercular wheeze and stops, it means
that the end of that gallon of gas
has been reached and it is time to
get ,out and get under.
The grand national average is a
thing which the dealers are going
to cuddle pretty carefully. Woe to
him whose test fails to keep that
percentage high! It is expected that
the average will reach 30 miles an
hour, or even more, for preliminary
trials have borne out the prediction
of the central office on this point.
Hageman had several tests made last
week, convincing Tiim that he can
make around thirty miles, and in the
course of the next four days, he ex
pects to boost the total somewhat.
