There, 'Big Griff" tried to have me keep that out of the paper, be cause as he says: "Haven't hail a ball in my jiami for two months. How do I know how I Km gonna act? Want me to lull down on ya?" It's amazing Sow they te ich our young normal .-chol-ars "Baseball slang in the big brush. But a baseball writer has to have something to talk about. He can't just say, "Tcmpe is going to plav Phoenix here Sunday at Grant park." The fans demand more. Ergo, GrilT was the sacrifice. There is one large broad gup in the Phoenix line up. It is wnera Hap O'Connors usually played. Hap leaves for Los Angeles today. For why? Well, this town is pret ty slow, and yunno . 'Jenkins will come in to play be hind the bat.

Clyde Blaine and R. J. Orput, of this city, and of the Phoenix Motorcycle club, starting Sunday morning. Ravir.g of the most extreme sort is proper: Too many good "things cannot be said of the trip. If, at the start, it presents ' the horrors of a dry dusty desert, its mid-die and third divisions lie through the cool, clean' forests of Yavapai and Coco nino counties, that Come nearer being an ideal summer playground than any other section of the southwest. From Phoenix to Wickenhurg there are road " troubles. Even the auto finds difficulty there. But after those first harrowing hardening six ty mlts. the traveler finds himself in a veritable paradise of outdoors. It is a little better outdoors tha any other specially in summer time. From Preseott to the Grand Can yon, the road ' follows the rounding hills, misses scorching, lava plains by "narrow margins, but- always plunges back into the delightful green of the grass-carpeted pine forests- ' The "hard' compact oil of the mountain roads is very inviting. Blaine and Orput will find no trou ble in- negotiating them. Since four intrepid Phoenicians rode to the canyon last summer, breaking the trail and proving its possibilities, there has been much longing, among the local riders. Plaine announced his intentions long ago. , Orput de-r-rderi to join him just lately. Blaine is riding a two-speed Excelsior: Or put a. Flying MerkeL. In last year's trip. Maurice . Valentine on a twin Merkel made a wonderful . record for economy and durability on the Can yon road. With him went Chet Mun ""h mi a Thor, "Doc" Watson on a Harvey and Bill Doheney on a Jef ferson. ' . , The riders expect to be gone about a . month. By "SCOOP" Stay, motorcyclist! In other words, stick around, we will have duels soup. In the absence of anything else to uo yester morn, tl saw all Ihe more prominent dealers in single track gasoline vehicles, with the result that there will be fun, excitement, profit and glory for the riders of the said motorcycles, Sunday and Sundays to come. More yo-heaver contests, hill climbs, and that gas economy stuff. We are waking up to the fact that we have at least four live motor nikc dealers in this man's town. They are Landis and Gardiner, Wey and and Brown, Doe Lane and Tack Sadler. They represent the four great standard motorcycles, the In dian, Kxceisior. Harley-Davidson and Merkel. And thereby hangs a ta!e. Since Doc Lane won the pull con test from Weyand last Sunday, there has been a great deal of in terest in the heaving powers of all motorcycles. It was granted that the tie-'em-together system was not an extra good one. It gave too much advantage to the rider. But the sjek-hauling method is better. They will haul sacks Sunday. The judges measure the gears to see they are the same, then they tie a ten foot rope between the pulling mech anism and a sack of sand. It is necessary for the machine to haul that sack of sand a measured ten teet over the ground. As ihe machines successfully yank the weight the required distance, the judges pour more sand into the re ceptacle in five-pound lots, until they roach a weight that one ma chine cannot negotiate. Then if the t other can haul it, the other is the winner. In the gasoline economy test, there is much instruction and enjoyment to be gained. Weyand wants to take a bran new Excelsior out of a bran j new crate, put some small portion of gasoline in its tank and see how- many . miles he Can accomplish. There is a division of opinion as to the best place to pull the. contest. Some want it on the road, others on the track. It is possible that the ciub can secure the mile track at the fair grounds for the purposes of the test. There has been nothing accom plished in recent motorcycling annals in Phoenix that interested so may people as the pull contest last Sunday morning. With the stimulation or a mall side bet, J. H. Lane and L. E. Weyand held one of the most profit ably public little contests of the season. .Now comes an opportunity for the dealers in other makes to compete against each other in a friendly bout. The time is rather short for pre paring machines, but even if Sun day's contests should not prove en tirely satisfactory, they vfill serve to "rt marks that can be demolished it; sub.-eqi-jnt trials.

When Teinpe and Phoenix meet here Sunday that's tomorrow for a hall game, Miss Jane O'Roark, vau deville actress, motor car racer, avi atrix, swiyiming champion, and ex pert in half a dozen lines of sport, will be there to watch the play. an-1 to report what she sees in Mon day's paper. There, that was quite a hit of business to accomplish in half a moment's conversation "behind" at the Columbia last evening. The strenuous star received me cordially that's to be expected; and hade me b seated on a dusty stairway which was. not to be expected, hut was just enjoyable, all the same. You see Miss Iewis, the clever dancer was occupying the same dressing room because lier's was flooded from the building processes, so we were outcasts. Miss O'Roark is one of the few stars, who does not read her lines or just lines to an interviewer. Per haps she did 't know I was an inter viewer, but I was always an, when I get a chance. Look out! Here comes the results; "I am quite a driver. I shall try my best to cut the track record for the five miles when I race at tlx fair grounds tomorrow morning. I am not familiar with the car I am to have a Cole roadster but 1 can get some speed o.rt of it." 'Let me he your mecanician." exclaimed interestedly. "Why certainly" instantly. So there you see how I am going to sacrifice myself for n.y readers: We always do that. We are bravely willing to run any risk for a few sensations to retail to the insatiable public! The conversation dropped to car buretors, and air mixtures, and miles per hour, so the interview began to grow tame. I cast about for some thing to liven it up. "How about howling?" "Oh, where, can I bowl?" "Mesa, seventeen miles away," I exolaimeed cleverly. "'Tis nothing to me. I ll make it in a few minutes in my car. Do you bowl?" I couldn't and won't learn, and that ended it the interview. hard, but he was given excellent sup port with the bases occupied. Score R- H. E. Detroit 6 11 8 Philadelphia :.9 9 2 Batteries C.

'. 2J5 NINE MORE PETITIONS FOR NEW LAWS FILED Secretary of State Flooded With New Legislative Ideas in Form of Initiatives . Nine petitions for elections on pro posed legislation were filed yesterday at the office of the secretary of state, three of them seeking to amend the constitution and the others initiating six legislative measures to be voted on at the next election. The amendments to the constitution provide for radical changes in the su preme law of the state. One provides that the governor's veto or the power of appeal of the legislature shall not extend to initiative and referendum measures passed by a majority vote of the people. Another would amend the constitution to the effect that the legislative power be vested in the house of representatives, thus doing away with the senate. The third pro poses to so amend the constitution that the state "may contract debts to supply casual deficits, or failures in revenues, or to raise money to meet any obligation of the state created by law, or for any purpose authorized by law.'' The bills proposed range from a mothers' pension act to one regulating the stringing of electric wires. One provides that SO per cent, of the work ers employed by any company, corpor ation or individual must be qualified electors or native-born citizens of Ari zona, and another along the same gen eral line would prohibit blacklisting and unlawful interference with labor ers. Still another would abolish the con tract system on all state labor, estab lish a state printing plant where school books and all state publications would be printed and provides for the . es tablishment of a state banking sys tem. The act concerning mothers and old age pensions provides pensions of $15 a month for all persons over GO years of age who are in need of state aid, and for the pensioning of all widows, and of wives whose husbands have been committed to insane asylums or penal institutions, at the rate of $15 CGMMEEfT Too Much -Mustard is all right at tht top of a flock of music marks, but it were better as the title of Abe Lukin's oration, delivered on each available listener, where there is any opportunity to til 'im about the Bears. "Me strengthen up?" Abe will ask in an offended tone, "Why iin't I getlin' a new catcher? My team is soo strong now. Lookut what we oid to Phoenix last Sun day. Ain't that enough?" r rial n Lukin has been getting a new catcher ever since we can lemem ber and that is a long time to forget. H. B. Griffen. Jr., reported to Lukin that Nut, the completely ciassy backstop of the Bears last ! season is idling his time away in some small tank town in Kansas. Griffen also' reports that maybe Nutt would fall lead.of heart failure if of fei ed a job with Tempe. These news ate unfounded, however. . We are; not saying he would be one of j them .there things what his name is. j if he should come back, but Just the same . ' 1 main all lines, nnd that is a mo- tt.rcycle ride. Were we daring enough, we should dare her to take a ride on our machine. The fields uf aviation, motoring, baseball, bowl ing, boxing, fencing ee. tee. see are t il familiar to this strenuous vaudc villeuse. She confhled in us her abil ity to average around 210 on any eld alleys, and claims a high score of 240, which is pretty close to the big red sign painted over the Y. M. C. A. alleys. If there is any form of sport in which Jane O'Roark has not partici pated, we would like to hear its last name. There is one thing we believe that stands between this ac complished sportswoman and a dip- i per month for each child under 16 i and for an additional pension of $6 I per month for each dependent child j over that age. The fund, in part at least, is to be provided from the sale i of the buildings and grounds of all j almshouses in the state, which are I abolished by the act. ; The sixth bill proposed provides j regulations prescribing the manner in i which electric wires, poles, cables and j applianeesjshall be placed. If the required number of names is I secured for these and other petitions ! now being circulated for the initiation j of new legislation, the ballot next fall j will be the largest in the history of the state, as the files at the office of j the. secretary of state alreadv contain dozens of petitions of this nature. Whoosh!!! Business of being just out of six feet of water. Whadya think? We gotta new English proof-reader. Been in V. S. less'n a year. He's reading a baseball " story in galley, 'n he sez to me: "Which, is it, 'inning' or 'inn ings'?" 1 am slowly recovering. FLINN PAYS VISIT TO COL. ROOSEVELT l OYSTER BAY, May 22. Wil- j liam Flinn of Pittsburg, pro- gressive national committeeman, I who led the bolt of Roosevelt delegates from the republican I national convention in 1912, to- night paid his first, visit to the ' I Sagamore Hill residence since the return of Roosevelt from South I America.
