Opening Day of American
League
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
NEW YORK, April 16. The reju
venated teams of the National and
American leagues began the 1916 sea
Inst week under favorable weath
" conditions. In . both leagues the:
'ine up wre spt Inklcd with names
of former stars in the Federal league.
The end of the first week found the
IN.ston dubs leadins ir. cich league.
Neither has et lost a frame, but the
Braves have played only two games
ind the Red Sox only three. Perhaps
the greatest surprise of the week was
the strength displayed by Cincinnati
in the National and Chicago in the
American league. The Braves appear
be even a bit stronger than they
were, last year, f inchinnti captured
tbo' first series from the reorganized
'ubs by three games to one. Cleve:
litching by Schneider, who allowed
only two hits, g.vve Herzog's men the
vi( t ry Saturday.
Alexander opened the season with
n victory fo.- Philadelphia. New York
recently strengthened through the
addition of Kanfr, Raridan, Rousch
and Anderson from the Federals.
Manager Mora.n'b players worked hard
for their two victories and shut them
"'.t in the second game The Phillies
present for 1016 practically the same
aggregation with which they won the
National league chamnionshir last
year.
St. I.ouis and Pittsburg, the other
Aestern teams in the National league
ha several new players, and appear
trong-r than last year. Babe Adams.
the eteran Pittsburg box man pitched J
the fust one-nit game of the season
Thursday when he shut out St. Louis
4 to 0.
Alth-Migh without the services of
Speaker, Boston won three games in
a row from Philadilirfiia and took the
early season lead in ' the American
le t cue. The Piston pitchers appeared
in good shape. Connie Mack club,
however, is composed for a great part
of men unused to the major league.
MK-nir.g day in the American
league witnessed two thre?-hit games.
Oroom of Cleveland held St. Louis to
three and Covaleskie did equally with
'hicago. Covaleskie further aided the
Tigers to victory by making four hits
him.self. The veteran Fielder Jones,
apparently has succeeded in merging
the 1915 Browns and his old Federal
league team into a winning combin
ation. Cleveland and Washington are
Ftronger th:m 'ast year with new men
added to their ranks. Kleipfer of
Cleveland held St. iouis hltless Sat
urday. The T'gern and the While
So with their hitting outfields, ap
ar every bit as strong, if not
stronger than they did when the 1915
se.iS'r. ended.
Walter Jo'.inson and Ray Caldwell
renewec'. hostilities when Washington
and New York opened the season
against each other and Johnson was
returned the victor. He held New
York to five hits and struck out 10
men, but had to go eleven innings to
defeat the Yankees. 3 to 2. There is
little doubt that Mamger Donovan
has a much ltter aggregation under
!ht Yankee flag than he bad last
year. The return of 'the self-exiled
Baker adds much offensive strength
to Donovan's club.

The Coyote Special pulled into
.000 1 T'hoenix yesterday afternoon at 4:3"
with the loyal pack of Coyotes. A
large crowd was at the depot to meet
the students, who wore smiles of joy
over the great success of the great
est University Week ever held in the
state of Arizona.
It was a rip-snorting affair and
everybody had a wonderful time.
The special train left Tucson at 1
p. m. sharp with 285 students. The
train made fast time all the way and
had the right of way, not passing
even a freight train during the hasty
sail across the desert on the main
line to Maricopa. The Arizona East
ern gave the Salt River valley schools
a fine train, consisting of six big
steel cars fully equipped, with an en
gine that took the special 60 miles
an hour all the way. It was a flyer,
and no stops were made until the
train reached Maricopa.
1". H. S. made a wonderful show
ing for a high school, copping tirst
place in most all events. The base
ball tournament resulted in Gila
cademy winning the championship
and it was a hard battle for the Gila
team in order to win that title. The
students were looked after by the
University and were given a big re
ception.
University Week thii year was the
iggest and best ever, and it is the
hope of every school in the state to
make It even a greater week next
year.

TIE TO COMPETE
Advices from New York are to the
effect , that Hannes Kohlemainen, the
great Finn runner, will be unable to
accept the invitation to compete in
the Mount Tamalpais race this sum
mer, which has been set for Sunday
Juno 18. The course up the moun
tain side is a difficult endurance test
approximating six miles, and the
champion feels that his business in
terests will not permit the time for
him to make the necessary prepara
tion for the test. This mountain is
one of the favorite recreation spots of
the bay cities, being only a short dis
tance, from San Francisco, in Marin
county,, and a big gallery of specta
tors is assured the runners along the
entire length of the -trail William
Unmick, an official of the Pacific
Athletic Association, who is in charge
of the arrangements, states that he
Is assured that a numter of athletes
of national prominence will Vie among

(Special to The Republican)
MESA, April 16. The kind of base
ball that bespeaks a live and profitable
season was handed out in the game
plp.yed hero this afternoon and which
the Beais from Tempe won from Mesa
by a score of 6 to 5.
Not until the last out in the ninth New York
Wi!s the Bear's winning anywhere near I Cleveland
a sure thing. From. the first inning Philadelphia
the two clubs fought for the lead and
flrt It was one team and then the
other team with the big end of the
score.
Rollle Pomeroy opened the scoring
with a homer over the center field
fence in the second inning. The Imt
teries were for Mesa, Price and Morris;
for Tempe, Oviedo and Finch.
(By SCOOP)
On the theory that a man will run
truer to form than a horse, Hugh Ful
lerton, famous baseball expert, pre
sumes to dope out the positions in
which sixteen major league clubs will
finish next fall, and to put on paper the
figures that represent the individual
performainces of every one of about
350 players.
Hugh does this in the last issue of the
American Magazine.
Far be it from us to take issue with
Mr. Fullerton on the merits of his
scheme. As a matter of fact, no ball
expert has as much right to say "The
Giants will finish sixth, or the Braves
will lead the National League" as this
man of much information. But if we
were a ball player, we would object to
being struck on a form sheet, classed
as to past performances, wind, heart
and muscle, and tabulated for what
good or ill we might do for our club in
the season just opening. We are not a
ball player, so we take the side of the
fan against this ruthless adding-ma-chine
policy of the well known expert.
What excitement the horse racing
fans got out of form charts was closely
allied to said fan's interest in certain
bets. Horse racing got to be a mighty
unpopular sport as a result. It is true,
there is a certain revival of interest in
the king of' sports, but even this is
based on a cash register like mechan
ism called a Pari-Mutuel machine.
The public and all that betting and
baseball will never clasp hands across
the sea. Baseball will never officially
sanction gambling on its results. True,
there is much betting, but it is not in
the hands of bookmakers as much as
was horse racing betting.
And, after all, isn't the rag-chewing
in the vicinity of the hot stove, the
most satisfying way of deciding base
ball form?
But here's the way Hugh S. Fuller
ton dopes them, and you can cut this
out and paste it up to see if he's right:
Order of finish, 1916:
Vi
N

Boston
Cincinnati

something but an arithmetic under his
Panama, you can just buy your ticket
