Charlottesville Matter to Be Set
tled Finally This
At the annual meeting of the Wash
ington Baseball Club in the club head
quarters Tuesday at noon, the entire
present board of directors and officers
are expected to be re-elected. The club
is successful and there is no reason for
any changes in the personnel of the of
ficers. The only important transaction will
t5 the report of a committee upon the
MMibiUties of purchasing a strip of
land immediately adjacent to the ball
park behind the right field fence. It is
the intention of the club to buy this
land, if possible, and move back the
garden wall so that lads like Ty Cobb,
Joe Jackson, and Harry Lord cannot
bounce the pill over it for homers.
The Toronto club, champions of the
international League, will be seen here
next spring in an exhibition game th
day before the regular season gets un
ier way, April 9. The Maple Leafs
have many former big leaguers and
tome promising youngsters who should
attract a good-sized throng of the faith
ful. Only two or three more games
will be scheduled byllanager Griffith.
Henry in Hospital
"llassa" John Henry, the Climbers'
big backstop, is in the Georgetown Unl
vreslty Hospital where- he will under
go an operation on his Injured knee
either today or tomorrow. A floating
cartilage must be removed before he
will regain his old form behind the bat
The-operation Is not considered serious
and he is expected to be on his feet in
side of a week.
This week is expected to bring final
decisions regarding the training camp
of the Climbers for 1313. Manager Grif
fith expects word from representatives
in Charlottesville some time this week.
IX his plans go through successfully,
he will not visit the college town. If
they don't, he will go down himself
for a final tour of the metropolis of
the Virginia valley. Falling to find
suitable quarters then, he will con
sider invitations from other towns.
Southern Pines, Jf. C, has made an
excellent offer and stands a good
chance of having it accepted, if Char
lottesville doesn't come to time.
Fortress Monroe has put in a good
ML too. but Griffith will. make -no d
cislon until he has looked into the
matter carefully.
Donlin on Move.
Mike Donlin is to move again. The
presence of Willie Locke at the head
of the Phillies means that the slugging
Mike must go to s-ome other club.
Locke doesn't think Donlin fast enough
for a major league club. He thinks
that, if Mike wasn't good enough for
the Pirates, he can't be sood enough
for the Phillies. Donlin got $3,000 for
lamming the pellet in Pittsburgh, and
a drop to the minors will make a big
cut in this stipend.
.Tomorrow the National Commission,
baseball's final court of appeal, meets
at Cincinnati for election of officers,
and consideration of the Class AA
salary limit squabble. The officers will
remain as they are now. Garry Herr
mann, as chairman, and the two major
league presidents on the board, through
virtue of their league titles. Secre
tary John E. Bruce will be continued
In office. '

F. Leroy Chance, peerless leader, will
very Kkely hook up with the New Tork
Tankees Tuesday in Chicago when he
encages Frank Farrell in a tete-a-tete.
Then look out for smoke in this little
old American League There will be
things doing in New Tork next sum
mer. Of course, Frank Chance isn't going
to win any pennant in 1913. Indeed, he
may consider himself fortunate If he
can pull the bemlred Tanks out of last
place. It takes time to build up a win
ning machine even when you have a
nucleus. A good nucleus exists in New
Tork, but It isn't any more than that.
That's why the former Cub chleftan
is apparently unwilling to sing a one
year contract. He knows that one year
does not allow a manager a fair trial
of his ability. Farrell may prefer this
one-year thing, but It's a safe bet that
Chance will hook up for longer than
that and that Ban Johnson will have
a finger in the pie himself before the
negotiations between the manager and
the magnate are concluded.
But the team, where ls that? Harry
Wolverton wasted much time last year
with a bunch of "hams" shifted to him
by that energetic scout (?), Arthur
voracious irwin. He wasted time. yes.
but he proved that not'one of them was
worth the powder to blow him off the
payroll. So Chance can leg!n where
Wolverton left ofT.
Has Good Pitchers.
Clark Griffith welded a winner with a
nucleus of two pitchers, an lnflelder and
an outfielder. Johnson, Groom, Mc
Brlde, and Milan formed the keystone
of the Climbers' arch of victory. Frank
Chance will find almost as good a nu
cleus In New Tork.
I The Tankees" pitching staff Is woithy
of commendation. Russ Ford, Ray
Caldwell and Jack Warhop are a trio
of level-headed performers. Ford was
a frost last yoar. but he seemed to
have lost Interest under the manage
ment of Wolverton. Caldwell didn't
follow training Instructions and had
trouble with his boss on that account.
Warhop did fairly well. With Chance
to handle them, this trio of Tankees
should come close to making trouble for
everybody in 1311
Then look at Ray Fisher. George Mc
Connell. George Davis and the new
man, Keating. Certainly Chance should
get at least two out of that bunch to
form a competent staff of five twlrlcrs.
McConnell pitched excellent ball last
season and should repeat. Davis and
Keating come to the Tankees with
plenty of recommendations.
Outfield of Hitters.
Truly It is an outfield of erl table
sluggers that will welcome Chance at
the opening of the coming campaign.
Birdie Cree, Harry Wolter, and Jack
Lellvelt all pound the pill for .325 or
more, while Bert Daniels Is good for
.275 almost any old time.
The weakness of the Tankees comes
In the Infield where only Hal Chase has
proved his worth. Roy Hartzell was
beaten out of third base last year by
young Mldklff. This young Russian may
continue to develop into a star next
season. That will aid much. But still
there are two open places at short and
Claude Derrick, who subbed for Jack
Barry, the Athletics' star, will be found
In the battle for the vacant place at
short. Derrick ls rather tall for a
shortstopper, and yet he Is no taller
than George McBrlde, who has at
tained some reputation In the posi
tion. .Jack Martin, slammed In the lamp
by Walter Johnson last spring, and
then shunted to Rochester, will be
back, trying for 0 regular Job. Martin
has plenty of "pep" and, If he can hit,
may beat out Derrick.
Priest In Scrap.
Johnny Priest, the Washington boy,
is also In the scrap for third base, come
to think of it. His hitting ls much
too light, for fast company, though,
so he ls expected to glide gracefully
back to the New Tork State League,
where he performed last season with
more or less success.
At second base is another hole.
Stump is a candidate for the position,
and Hal Chase threatens to cavort
around there If Chance decides to re
turn to the game as a playing man
ager. Chase's southpaw efforts were
seen in this city last July, and evoked
laughter from the bugs. No, Chase
will not clav second base for the
Tanks. but there's no one in sight
right now for the place.
Harbison, obtained from Atlanta, is
said to De a classy periormer in tne
shortfield. and his admirers predict he
will surely be the Tanks' regular short
stop. If he beats out Derrick, there
may be room for the latter at second.
But, however, you look at the problem,
you will easily see that F. Leroy
Chance, peerless leader of the Chicago
Cubs, ls bumping into plenty of hops
when he assumes control of the New
Tork Tankees.
Team work has been absent In the
performances of the Tankees for at
least two seasons. This will be history
In 1518, for team work ls Chance's mid-

Confident of winning In Its next en

week of hard work. An overtime came.
In which a win was recorded In the last

well versrd In basketball, Gallaudet
faced Joola In Bultlmore last night.
The homo team showed to advantage
for the flrat part of the contest, famili
arity with the floor and coney tlons
standing them In good btcad.
At the end of the first liaf, Lojola
led at 9 to 6. Neither team was able
to score on account of the fact that
the guards blocked hard and stuck to
their forwards at all times. Galladuet
was slow and not in the best of con
dition, which account for the fact that
the team did not win more decisively.
Durlan and Rasmussen, the Galladuet
guardB, showed at advantage In the,
second half, while the forwards nut on
Increasing speed and managed to get
a tie. A goal was shot In the last min
ute of the overtime period.

senseless bickering, criminal "laying

with Frank chance at the wheel. He ls
out for business all the time, and will
not keep a man jvho isn't taking his
Job seriously.
, It-would be a great help to the Amer
ican League could the Tankees climb
up the ladder at least as high as the
first division. The metropolis gives
to the Giants hundreds of thousands
of dollars, and only .thousands to the
Tankees. Could the latter be winners.
New Tork's fandom, always willing to
follow the victor, would run after them,
and Frank Farrcll's row would be most
easy to hoc.
The entire league could not but bene
fit by this slate of affairs. Even the
lowest clubs In the. standing would
make money on their visits to the big
town, whereas now even the best teams
cannot draw more than S.000 people to
that windy place on the Hilltop.
That's why Frank Chance has been
obtained to lead the Tankees out of the
wilderness. He ls believed to possess
the necessary requirements. Indeed, he
has proved It In tho past. That's why
no foolish auestlon of length of contract
ls going to stand in the way of hla
going to the team. Ban Johnson will
see to that.

Undergraduates here arc talking of
tho prospects of a dual meet with.
Georgetown In the spring. They would
like such a meeting of tho two universi
ties, and would be perfectly satisfied
to hae It held at Washington, though
Lambeth Field would bo an ideal place
for It. It Is possible that a mass meet
ing may bo called for the purposo of
booming this meet.
"Virginia has somo good material for
its track team." said "Pop" Lannigan
today, "but victory over Georgetown
xneuns a lot of hard work ahead of the
squad. Such stars as Bob Eller, Chap

They should win points, but the rest of

his injury and Is out for the track
