High Schoob Expect to Hold Track Meet Next Wednesday on Satterlee Field
E
A TRUNK FULL OF MEMORIES
By Goldberg
OP SCHOOLBOY MEET
Advisers Change Annual Affair
for Third Time and Select
Wednesday Next.
WESTERN HOLDS AFFAIR
.
AGAIN SHIFT DAI
Red and White Athletes Make
Arrangements to Hold Their
Closed Events Monday.
By RYAN MORSE.
Phones rang all day at the the various
high schools today when E. W. Mat'
thews, faculty advisor of athletics at
"Western, tried to get In touch with the
others to again change the date of the
annual high school meet which was
Elated for Monday next at Satterlao
Field.
According to present plans the high
school affair will be held a week from
today at Satterlee field unless there is
a disposition on the part of the faculty
advleers to asraln thift the date.
I seems that all of them had reckoned
without the knowledge that Western
Htgn scnool was scneaunng a ciosea
field and track meet, an annual affair
lor the boys of the schools, and that
arrngements had been alredy completed
when it was learned that the date, set
for May 23, was shifted to next Monday.
Thev'estern school made the arrange
ments with Cathedral and as there are
so many, other activities following next
week the meet will be held on Mon
day. The throw's the other high
acnools out of the Monday date so that
AVednesday has been selected.
It was explained that the Monday date
was a tentative one and that there was
nothing final about it. It now seems
that tn annual affair is one of th
most movable of events, and from past
performances in date shifting it would
appear that the event may again be
shifted.
Business is pinning its hopes on a
defeat of Eastern by the Western team,
believing that Keller, the star hurler,
will be able to stand the Central play
ers on their heads, iveiley Has been
pitching great ball for the First M. P.
team in the East Washington League,
and Is. looked upon as being able to
duplicate the performance made In the
Western game.
Eastern's kick is thought, hardly
sportsmanlike, in view af tne fact that
when Ihe title depended upon the West
ern game two years apo Tech had no
misgivings about partisanship, played
the Red-and-Whlte team on George
town Field and won.
Cornell and the Baukers are furnish
ing the same sort of sport in the Capi
tal City Lieague this year that the
Pumping Station and the Paperhangers
did last season. The Bankers have
been strengthened by the addition of
Zachary and Chief Greene, while Cor
nell, "fclth'many of the old stars and a
few players from the champion Pepco
team of last seaton. loom up consid
erably stronger.
After the high school gaes are
through many of the players will af
filiate with several of the amateur
league teams. .Many teams among the
sandlot playerg have strengthened In
the past at the close of the high school
series and thlj year will be no excep
tion. The results in the amateur baseball

Plan Huge Celebration for
"Smokebali King" on His
Return Here.
Washington is going to have an op
portunity to show its appreciation and
admiration for Walter Johnson, the
Climbers' 'Smokebali" pitcher who has
already won nine games this season
for the Grlffmen, and who is probably
golnR to win several times that many
before he is through with the Wash
ington club. Every fan from the age
when he learns to swing a bat to the
oldest baseball enthusiasts of the city
is going to have an opportunity to
show his individual respect for the big
Kansas Cyclone, for It Is with the con
tributions from the fans that the big
celebration In honor of the "peerless
pitcher" is to oe held.
It is to be known as Walter Johnson
Day. and to maks It as complete as
possible. Captain Newman, of the Wal
ter Johnson Day committee, has tele
graphed Clark Griffith, asking him to
set a day for the celebration when ha
will allow Johnson to ascend the mound
against whatever club may be opposing
Washing at the time.
Present plans embrace a huge dem
onstration at the ball park, at wnich
time a silver lovlntj cup and man
floral tributes will be presented to the
Smokebali King. Funds are being re
ceived at the cigar store of J. li. New
man, 719 Fourteenth street.

The Trust-Busters.
We understand the bill against the baseball trust has been buried waist
deep in committee. If it is ever revived again one glance at a certain
name in both standings of the clubs will show said committee exactly
where to impart the first official blow.
Frank Chance, batting for two men in one inning, tore off a victory.
But some fans are never satisfied. One writes in to know just why the P.
L. can't bat for all nine of his men and blow himself to another pennant-
But Mr. Murphy still insists that
slabmen at once. As for instance?
Technical Is Proper.
In other words, the Cub magnate is now in a highly technical position
-highly technical being the only proper phrase. He has two of the great
est receivers In baseball with little or nothing to receive. What does It
profit a mogul to have the greatest catcher in the world where only 1 per
cent of the thrown balls manage to reach the catcher's waiting glove?

"We have a regular ball club now," he announced, "and that means
a ball club that isn't to be stopped by one or two losses. In the old days
we curled up under the first mishap. Now the bunch is out there fighting
harder than ever. Birmingham has not only made good, but several doubt
ful propositions have come through far beyond our hopes. Whether we win
this season or not, the old days of Cleveland baseball are gone, and this sea
son means a start, at least."
In so far as world series ambitions are concerned, we have but one or
two left. One is to see Nap Lajoie in one at least after serenteen years'
service. The other is to see Walter Johnson turned loose In a seven-game
series, keyed up to the exact angle. Cobb, Walsh, Wagner, Mathewson,
Baker, etc., have had their splash. The other two haven't and both are due.
