DOUGHER. Joe Wood, former star twirler with the Boston Red Sox, wants a trial with tho Phillies, and, according to dispatches from New York, Pat Moran may give him a chanco to show his 'ability. . Wood Is understood to have been given his unconditional release by Man- ,agor Bill Carrlgan as a result of their ( .'disagreement over Wood's 1016 salary '.terms. Ho endeavored to get a trial with tho Yankees, but seems to havo lost o'ut. Now ho wants to sign with the National League champions. Tho playcr-Umtt of twenty-one, In vogue in the National League, may prevent Moran's signing up Wood, even k for a trial. On May 1 the Phillies wllV be restricted to twenty-ono playors. Moran has more than that number now, having signed Claudo Cooper, former Giant outfielder, last week. Tfio Phillies' manager has promised Wood an answer within the next couplo of days, and tho former Jtcd Box star Is watting. Freddie Thomas, swapped by Clove land with Bam Jones for Trls Speaker, will remain In New Orleans until tho fall. This Is tho agreement between the Red Box and Indians.

By the time ho. hammers a. few mora on the proboscis, he will bo admired by the rest of the bugs. Benson? Henri can hit. It has been some moons since the Grlttmin possessed a batsman who. In a. tight plaoc.i could come up and take hi. healthy, driving the pellet far out Into the garden, scoring run ners waiting for Just that wsllop. Henri seems to be tho right lad for the lob. Griff's foot slipped last season. He returned Henri to Mlnenapolls be fore h got over trying to train too early. By tho time he found himself, the Millers needed a clean up swatter, so he promptly stepped Into tho breach and was Instrumen tal In winning the 1915 pennant for Joo Cantlllon. That'e why,Rondeau Is being play ed In the garden for the Orlffmen today. That's why he Is likely to remain thero. too.

Ho re ceived $1,500 for four world's series nnd then signed with tho Federal League for three years at 1!,000 a year.

In mor ways than one, this' annual re lay meet at Pcnn overshadows Uie intercollegiate.. When Smith, Michigan, meets Pershing, Chicago, something Is go ing to happen 'to the century mark.

Yale; Itllcy Dartmouth, and Lock wood, Petin, to name a few. In many ways Pennsylvania Uni versity does more than any other university for the encouragement of track athletics. It Is a wonderful heritage left by Mike Murphy, and Che Quakers are making the most of It. t The Next Olympics. There should be no particular hurry abo-jt arranging tho next Olympics. Indeed, It Is poor taste for Ameri cans to agitate these games. .Let poor, stricken Huropo recover somewhat from its present fever of war heforo asking her to prepare track athletes of ability to compcto on equal terms with Americans. An Olympic meet as early as 1920 will be hardly more than an oppor tunity .for Americans to scire a lot of cheaply-won honors.

Aleck Smith, former holder of na tlonal and metropolitan championships, predict that trie young stars will deal up on the links thin season.

"xnese young taas are coming io fctrong to be headed off much longer." declared Aleck yesterday. "I couH narnc any one of a doten youths whi will make rouble for any of the o)4 stars In tho championships. Phil Carter, for Instance, is one ot the nerviest play era 1 ever saw. As a match player 1 think he is a close second to Travers and Jerry never had many equals fronj either tno amateur or professional ranks. I havo watched Carter closclj and his game la sound throughout. But. best Of all. Is his nerve. Ha regards all his opponents alike, and never 'knowi when he's beaten. "Iteggle Lewis Is another comer. Ill Is of the Carter type, but his game at present Isn't so finely developed. Ihav been teaching a number of boys foi some time, and they'll be surprised-whet they have had a little more seasoning. ' "It li mighty hard to predict the out come of a big tournament, but at pres ent I can't see how any amateur li going tc atop Carter and several othei youngsters. Jerry Travers still has lot of good golf left In his clubs, but 1 understand he won't have much Hon this sjmmer for tournament playing, "Chick Evans Is probably the most sensational player In the country, bul ho is bo .unreliable that no one can safely predict he will do conslstenttj well In a championship.
