V. .x Svit f 1 Evers as He Appears in His Uniform and in Street Dress. John J. Evers, coach of the White Sox, has quietly been establishing a record for himself in his first season as an American leaguer that few have given a passing thought to, yet many have observed without comment. Johnny used to be a great umpire baiter, and "the human crab" in his days as a National league performer, but strange to say, he has not had a single alter cation with one of Ban Johnson's umpires this year. "It seems kind of queer not to be ragging somebody," said the Sox coach recently, "but I just made up my mind when I came into the American circuit I'd be a good boy. It is hard sometimes, but I just clinch my teeth and remem ber that tiie limp usually has the last word, and so I've probably overcome a great fault at least, something the public looked upon as fault." REFUSED TO JINX CLUB Hotel Statler at Detroit was having the ceiling of its lobby painted. Decorators, scaffolding, paint cans, cans of paint, canvas and ladders were being used. All this is not sulliciently ex traordinary to make it worth even a hotel note. There wasn't an item of news in the whole act until Ty Cobb entered the hotel. His objective was the desk. Cobb took one look and saw nothing but ladders. To ad vance a single sup be would have to pass under one of them. The Tygers bad won eight straight games. Cobb did not turn around and walk out. He retraced his steps by backing out, facing front ward only after he had reached the sidewalk. CLEVER AS THIRD BASEMAN Apparently Everybody Agrees That Howard Shanks Belongs to Out field, Except Manager. Howard Shanks, third baseman for the Washington team, belongs in the outfield. Everybody apparently is agreed upon that, except the few that have the matter in hand. However, Shanks last year led all third base- Howard Shanks. men in the league when he accepted 571 chances at third In 154 games. This total gave him an average of 3.49 per game. And he set a new rec ord for third basemen by starting 27 double plays. OLD-TIMER PLAYS BASEBALL En Sue Punge, Age Forty-Six, Father of Eleven Children, Has Been in Game Twenty-Five Years.

Wade Leder, formerly with the Bal timore Orioles, has been going like a million dollars since joining the Au gusta team. Howard X. Fitzgerald, center fielder for the Amarillo club of the West Texas league, has been sold to the Chicago Cubs.

The Moline club released Mat Zeiser and Terre Haute took him on and sent him in against his former mates. He beat them nicely. Seattle traded Bod Murphy to Sac ramento, it is hinted, because Murphy was peeved at not being made man ager of the Seattle team. The Minneapolis ownership has transferred Pitcher T.c-o Mangum to the St. Joseph team. He was a world beater with St. Joe last year. Pitcher Buzz Arlett was set down for ten days by President McCarthy for taking a poke at Umpire Ted Mc Grew, and fined .$100 besides. A scout for the St. Louis Browns has signed up a catcher who goes by the name of Irish Murphy probably to make Pat Collins feel at home. Good though he may le, the Buffalo club thinks it made a deal to it ad vantage in the transfer of Catcher Ben Bengough to the New York Yankees. Sport Woodbridge, a nineteen-year-old pitcher with the Lubbock team of the West Texas league, has been bought by the Chicago Cubs for a trial. Acquisition by Dallas of Don Kader from Beaumont is taken by some of the sharps to indicate that Bobby Stow has run his race in the Texas league. The Japanese have taken up Amer ican baseball and have become quite adept at it, but they never can be con sidered real fans until they kill a few umpires. Concordia college of St. Louis has furnished another major league grad uate. He is a catcher, Norman Bakke. who has ben taken on by the Brook lyn club for trial. Max Carey, like Tyrus Raymond Cobb, Is Hearing the age when most players are about ready to retire as major leaguers, but the Pirate out fielder is an exception. Chick Gagnon, sent by Detroit tc Rochester, got off to such a good start that the critics thought It necessary tc warn the fans not to expect him tc keep it up all the time. It might be noted that Wally Pipp whom Manager Miller Huggins of the New York Yankees has been trying tc discard for two seasons, is right now playing the best ball of any man on the New York team. Frank Woodward's latest "return" after his latest suspension was nota ble. He insisted on pitching both games of a double header for New Haven against Albany to make up foi time lost. He won them both.

Jiggs accepting 1.9S0 chances in 1.77 games. Artie Hofman, while playing for the Cubs against Pittsburgh, June 24, 1010, went through a game without a putout and only one assist. FIGHTERS GET LAZY BY REMAINING IDLE Don't Fight Often Enough, Says Old-Time Scrapper. Tom Sharkey Expresses 3elief That James Jeffries or Joe Choylnskl Could Have Easily Defeated Jack Dempsey. Tom Sharkey, the old-time heavy veight, does not think so much of mod ern glove fighters. In a recent con versation he said: "These present-day champions are all right, but I don't think they compare with the old ring men who really knew what the word 'tight meant. Dempsey has to come to his opponent to be effective and that is just what 'Jeff liked. He slaugh tered every one who did it. Another man who I think could easily have beaten Dempsey was Joe Choyinski. He fought like Jeffries and he was there when in his prime. In my opinion jack Dempsey. there is only one of the old-timers whom Dempsey could have beaten, that is Jim Corbett. I think he would nave knocked out Corbett as easily as Jeffries would have beaten him. I am not underestimating Dempsey. I won $2,."nO the day he whipped Wil lard, and I seconded Jack the day he stopped Carl Morris. In my opinion YVillard was not a coward, but he lacked a fighting heart, which every fighter must have if he ever hopes to win laurels in the prize ring. A'l that Willard was interested in was the cash, and Tex Uickard set a record when he hung up S 1 N ,H M for the big Westerner in his championship con test with Dempsey. The trouble with boxers today is that they don't work hard enough when they reach the top. When they gain the championship they became actors and let their strength ebb away at some soft job. Dempsey is a champion today, but he would have received little mention when I was fighting." INTERESTING SPORT NOTES University of Illinois) will lose 13 star athletes by graduation.

A thirty third degree bug of the Order of Bugs wants to know if such a thing ever happened in a reg ular big league game. It did. Delehanty on-e knocked the cov er oft' a ball and the cover was fielded to first by the pitcher while the ball, unwinding yarn at every jump, was pounced up on by an outfielder. Everyhody got tangled up before the play was adjusted. R1GNEY FILLS GAP AT SHORT Flashy Young Texas College Recruit More Than Making Good at Short for Ty Cobb. Not much has been said about Em ory Kigney, the thohy young Detroit shortstop who just broke into the elite circle this season, displacing the vet eran Donie Bush, long an idol of big league fans. Kigney is hitting good for a young ster, and has a happy faculty of get ting his blows when they count. Be- sides Kigney is fielding in such a way as to make the Detroit fans forget that there ever was a Bush. The Texas league recruit got off to rather a bad start at the beginning of the season due to nervousness, but now that he has confidence in himself is proving a big asset to Manager Cobb. Kigney is a college product and had but one year professional experience, playing with Ft. Worth in the Texas league last year, where he was a sen sation.
