A twenty-passenger bus: leaves the Adams hotel each day at 9 a. m., 1:30 p. m., and the street cars will be met at Orangewood station for those who miss the bus. All local players are urged to notify me, either in person or by phone (1223) for entrance to the various events some time today, as the draw ings will take place "Wednesday. A handsome new grandstand with a covered roof, that witl assure rest and shade for at least three hundred spec tators, has been erected at the club courts. An admission fee of fifty cents will he charged for the grandstand,, which will be good for the entire day; sea son tickets good for the four days can be had for $1.0. E. E. Neff, president of the South western association, will arrive this evening at 10 p. m. with Norman Carmichael and party from Clifton. They are coming in Mr. Carmichael's private car. llr. Neff will immediately devote his personal attention to helping make the final, arrangements for the tour nament. From the entry list already received it looks like it is to be the largest tournament ever held in the south west o CALLAHAN SAYS HE WILL STICK AT TOP (By Scoop 1 see that Jimmy Callahan is pul ling the nonchalant stuff about hav ing no trouble a-tall sticking in first place. This news was delayed in transmission just enough to give the Sox time to tumble from the top to sixth place, where they rested at a late hour last evening. Here are some of the things the Chicago American manager had to say previous to and prior. "Can we stand the pace?" "You can bet we are going to stand ru'i.n.ri n i, ii ihi ii i i-m-i- n 1-1 i BaseballGoods pinney & eobinsoh 17 South Center Everything But Features We can change your appearance, but not your ex pression.

"We mean to land the bunting this season. I don't want to do any boasting, but you'd have to hum a mighty long time with a mk roscope to discover a better pitch ing staff than I have right now. "And anybody who brings up til is old stuff about us falling by the way side just because some of my men went on that world's tour or played winter baseball lias another guess coming. "Scott. Hen., Daly. Fabor and AVea ver went on the tour and of t ha t quar tet Weaver, is the utiiy man who has to play every day. only fourteen games were played in three months over in Europe. Russell played a little winter ball, but not enough to do any harm. "The winter ball pla ing my men have done has served to keep them in condition and certainly will not inter fere with their staying power in the race." Cal cays there is a good reason for the excellent condition of the Sox the finest spring training weather any big league team ever had. The Sox trained in California and had to postpone only three of forty scheduled exhibition games because of bad weather. I will not predict that James' team will NOT do ail he says it will this season. I leave that to the imagination of the fans who remember what Wash ington is in the habit of doing to the Ohieagoans also Detroit, anil the Ath letics arid once in a while the Browns. Rut I will venture to say that if Jim my's huskies will engage to train in the Salt River valley next spring they will not have to postpone even the three games. o One of the most enthusiastic motorcyclists of Baltimore. Md., is ss Beatrice Kraus. who spends many happy days with her two wheeler, exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains. The annual hill climb of the At lanta Ga.) Motorcycle Club will take pia-r- the latter part of May. Weight and coasting contests will be among the futures of the inert, as Wed as s,.et'!i events. J I 1 BASEBALL BUG BITES IE5NS When 'Yarsitv Team Plays Jewels Today, Gem City Will Have Chance to See! Whether or Not Wvvk Da v( Same Will Succeed. (Special to The Republican) -MKS.V, May 4. Today is baseball day in .Mesa again. The governor may not be here to toss the first ball and there may not be as many visitors as on the day of the White iox game but the indications are that there will be a lot more en thusiasm because the odds are more even. The university and the .Mesa teams play today. The educated youngsters are expected to arrive this morning after which they will be shown the town and then this alternoon at 3 o'clock they will be shown the best baseball park in the valley with a brand new scoreboard. That scoreboard is not to be over looked under any consideration. It was placed there last week by Langowski and he is as proud of it as he was of his team after it won the twelve-inning contest from Tem po Sunday alternoon. Put to return to that score board when it was be ing erected the Mesa manager was prevailed upon to make it for a ten frame game and save the lumber that would be wasted in making the two additional frames However, Langowski insisted that there be twelve frames so that there would he plcntv of room if ever it was need ed. The first game went twelve inn ings, and was chock full at that. Paul Julius wears a smile that reaches around to the back of his head and ties in a bow knot over that score board stunt. It's his hobby. The score board and the good grounds are not all for the consider ations for the fans who journey atound the corner this afternoon to see the game. The Tucson young sters pity ball like veterans. They have all the action of a regulation 1 team and they expect to carry home two games. They have played two games with the Mesa team and the scores stand 1 to 1. The stores will close at 2:30 o'clock and remain closed until 4: Ma o'clock. It is predicted that there will be-a large crowd in attendance this af ternoon. The basi ball feeling is in the atmosphere and when that gets to going it means a large crowd at a Mesa game. on account of the game Sunday. Goss will not pitch until Wednes day. McCo'.van, who is in tin-top condition, will play on the raised place in the center of the diamond this afternoon. This is the first real week-day game played t!i!s season and much depends upon th size of the crowd. Joyce, ol Tcmpe, will umpire. o Hire a little salesman at The. Re publican office.

A GAS RECORD OF 32.8 MILES That Was Mark Established by Franklin in Grand Na tional Average on Tests Made Las Fridav; 51.2 Was lli-i-h Water Mark. Thirty-two and eight-tenths miles per gallon was the national average made by the ninety-four Franklin six-cylinder touring cars in the economy test last Friday. This fig ure was given in a telegram re ceived by George Hageman from the Franklin home office yesterday. A Milwaukee car rolled up the beauti ful total of fifty-one and two-tenths miles, while down in Georgetown, Texas, another car of the same mod el, was only able to grind out a measly little seventeen miles, plus. "They must "a had gumbo mud to the ex in Georgetown bust Friday, if that's all they could do," said Hageman, but the local agent isn't crowing much, for his car turned out only 28.6 miles, which although eleven miles better than 'low," was almost four miles below the national averagj. In taking out the magneto esterday front the stock car used .. in the local test, it was found to be I improperly adjusted, which possibly , accounts for the comparatively low ' mileage made. The -detailed reports on weather , and road conditions are looked for- j ward to with muih interest. A lit-j tie over a year ago, tile world's r;-c- ; ord of 83.5 miles on a single gallon f was made by a Franklin four-cylin- I der touring car, weighing less than a ton. This car however had no oil - ftrential, drove through one rear ; w heel only, and had a special car- J buretor, while the cars used in last Friday's test were standard eip'ipped. six-cylinder touring cars, each car- . tying two passengers and driver, and weighing about ifloo pounds, so the performance of the Milwaukee car seems almost too good to-be true. j The Franklin also has made some interesting records on oil consamp- The Speed Phyz of Baker, Who's Motorcycling To Mew York City BY "SCOOP" It was a weary, gaunt, dusty Baker who rode into Phoenix some time shortly after six o'clock hist evening on his way from San Diego to New ork. The bad roads between Yuma and Agua Caliente took more gasoline than the rider had figured on, and he ran short three miles the ither side of the springs. That meant walk. Ar.d walk he did. He pushed his machine those three aw ful miles, filled and struck the trail again. At nine o'clock this morning- Paker will be well between Roosevelt and Globe, when the second day of his ranscontinental tour expires. Eight een days between Globe and New York City, will then remain before him. Starting from San Diego at S Sun day morning. Baker rode to Glands that evening, and rested before the Mammoth wash sand pull. lie had rain, mud, hot sun, sand and ruts to Effort Before the time of Western Union Day and Night Letters business men used the tele graph in emergency' as a final effort.
