By LOUIS A. 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.
When Bill Cnrrlcran naked for Thomas.
(.thnt youngster had already been turned
I ovrr to New Orleans for cash. Bo tho
Boslor .club had to arrange Its deal
with tho Pelicans.
.Baltimore Is up in nrms against tho

Bill Donovan pleaded that cold
weather kept his stars out or the game,
but that doesn't suit the fans whowero
willing to brave the cold and pay
money to see tho big leaguers.
It Jack Dunn has -decided to book no

while Shocker looked llko a busher for
tho rest of tho game. However, with
out batting support, these twlrlcrs had

'
In tho third Ifcnrl Rondeau decided
that It was up to him to put tho Q riffs
In the lead, and so hn delivered a
, healthy double to right Held that
brought In Foster and Milan, who had
landed on the sacks through u force-out
and a freo tlckqt.

' vanishing from the scene with John

McBrlde Hlngled to right, and Johnson
hoisted tho applo far out over Malscl's
head for threo corners.

while with tho Indians. Shnnks met
him with a trlplo to the scoreboard,
and Foster's sacrlllce My brought homo

While Urban Shocker was shocking
thn hopes of his manngor In the
seventh, tho GrllTs ndded another to
their total, on did likewise In tho
eighth.
Milan's walk started tho seventh, and
Shocker hit Rondeau viciously. Wal
ters' poor peg to third allowed both
runners to advance Morgan stopped
another pitched ball with his anatomy,
tilling tho sacks. Then camo Alnsmith's
long fly to Malsel and Milan scored.
With ono gone In the eighth, Shanks
singled past Baker, going up on Fos
ter's death. Milan's sizzling drive
through Plpp scored tho Monacan with
tho last lun for the homo boys.
For six sessions tho Yankees could
not touch Johnson. They stopped dying
In order when tho seventh rolled
around though, and managed to get
one hit, though no run. Malsel'a snfo
smash to right opened tho Inning. High
forced him. Milan took Doo Cook's
lly, and then Morgan failed to corral
'Baker's eaBy bounder close to tho mid

to Be Just the Right Chap Today's Sportorial

Vw
By LOUIS
Henri Rondeau Is already fast be
coming a favorite with the denizen
of tho third base pavilion. 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. With the coming
of warmer weather, he should be
woll among the leaders In the
league
Mtnrl sure looks good to thosa
third base fans right now.

Poor "Brick" Owens.
After reading thoso "caustic criti

Why Tinker Smiles.
Joo Tinker, manager of the Chi
cago Cubs, has been playing base
ball In tho big show for fourteen
years. In that time he has collected
I10G.OO0. That's why he smiles. Ho
can't think of any other line half so
prosperous.
Eleven years with the Cubs gavo
him W.000. Hodrcwdown JtO.OOO
for falling to please Garry Her
mann's board of directors. 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.
And when Joe qulls managing can
tankerous ball players, ho will con
tinue to' smile, for he haa $60,000 In
vested In Chicago property, $20,000
more In Louisiana oil. W.BO0 In Kan
sas City property and 13,000 In Port
land, Ore., property.
No wonder he smiles. Wouldn't
you?
Oklahoma Dreams.
It Is said that .Oklahoma believes
that tho one man with a chance to
win tho world'it heovywelght cham
pionship from Jess' Wlllard Is none
other thnn Carl Morris, of Sapulpa,

Penn's Great Meet.
Wise track followers are looking
for new records to come from Penn's
big relay meet, to be held at Frank
lin Field Friday and Saturday. 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.
Simpson, of Missouri, the Western
hurdler. Joint holder of the world's
record, will be there, ready for his
best.
Such high Jumpers as Oler. Yale,
and Richards, Cornell, aro the class
of the country todiy. The same goea
for Arllo Mucks. Minnesota, In the
shotput, and Worthlngton, Dart
mouth, In tho broad Jump.
Then think of the relay teams
which will have Meredith, Pcnn;
Dlsmond, Chicago: Wilcox and Bing
ham Harvard: Wlndnagle, Potter,
an I HufTmlre, Cornell; Overton. 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.

Students at tho University of

country golf. Contestants have
only ono holo to play for, but
its distance from teclng-off
place may range from one to
three miles, or, in fact, any dis
tance that may be agreed upon.
The ground played over is also
calculated to be classed as fair
way. All entrants start at a selected
spot, the distance being decided
upon from the home tee. Play
is go-as-you-please until the
ball is putted into the cup. The
University of Washington was
the first of the Northwestern
colleges to adopt golf and tho

With Ouimet Out and Chick
Evans Always Uncertain,
Youngster Is Promising.
NJ5W YOKK, April 2G.-Wlth Francli
Ouimet officially barred from amateui
golf tournaments, Jerome Travers tot
busy to competo more than casually,
and Chick Evan always unreliable, thi
famous "big- threo" of the golf worW
appears destined to give away to nen
leaders this year.
Aleck Smith, former holder of na
tlonal and metropolitan championships,
predict that trie young stars will deal
up on the links thin season. It Is th
opinion of the veteran Wykagyl profes
sional that both Gardner's national n
Travis'
"McU"tltlea will be Won by th
younger tilavcr
per.
"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. Ouimet will not
compete In tho leading events, so that
leavaa It pretty easy for the newcomers
Tho future for them '. especially bright
In ths metropolitan tournament, becaust
Walter J. Travis will not defend hi!
