I". THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SUNDAY, JANUARY 7, 1917. Griff men Will Have Shortest Training Season of Any Major League Club CLUB'S TRAINING SEASON SHORT ONE . Three Weeks Only to Be Allot ted in Conditioning Play ers foGames. CHICAGO SHORTENS UP BLONDES WIN MATCH Clubs in General Appear tt Be Cutting Down, on All Preliminaries. Clark Griffith's Nationals are going to have the shortest training season of any of the major league clubs this year. Grlffa players will spend but , tbree weeks at Augusta, Gil, before taking the road for the ftw exhibition games. Only one other club in major league baseball, the Chicago Americans, will have anywhere near as short a period In getting ready for the opening of the big leagues. Comiskey's White Sox will be .but a month Jn prepara tion, according to the Old B'oman. For one thing. Griff has very few players who need looking over this year. Other teams with a host of rookies who must be weeded out have to spend six and eight weeks in prep aration. .Expense Too Great. The expense of carrying a lot of dead-weight through five weeks or longer of training season has been too great a burden on clubs. Few play ers are ever landed for the big show in this manner, and the trend of the last year or so has been in favor of fan tryouta under fire and the cutting down of the actual squad for spring work. Pitchers are generally gotten at work earlier than the other players. Grift is particularly fortunate in hav ing a competent pitching corps. With "Walter Johnson, Mel Gallia, Harry Harper, Doc Ayera, Lefty Thomas; and Molly Craft Uys Old Fox looks ready to start. The other players were for the roost part fixtures last year, and will probably be on the job again this season, although Griff has made no decisions as yet. Players have yet to be signed, and It Is rumored several cuts are expected. Games Will TelL According to the present dope, the GriSmen will play no exhibition games at Atlanta this spring with other big league clubs. Efforts are being made to stage contests at Chat- tanooga, Tenn., with the Reds. Matthewson's Cincinnati team will be played several engagements before the team arrives here. Other real workouts will be here on the local grounds, when the Phillies are en countered on April 6, 7 and 8. Barring accidents, the players wilH report in tiptop shape. Johnson, Mi lan. McBride, Foster, and Williams generally go through preliminary stunts during the winter. These vets have declared the Charlottesville weather has done their early work outs a deal of harm, and lias gener ally set them back. Different Thin Year. Atlanta's balmy clime is expected to put the athletes in fine fettle, and while the training season Is the short est of any ol the major league clubfe, results are expected to be satisfactory. Milan, Smith and Rice are almost sure to be given first call for outfisld berths this year. Menoskey, Bcntley, Horace Milan, and Acosta are sure to be looked over again. Outroll 'Brunettes in Northwest Girls' Duckpln League. Miss E. Charlton, of the Blondes, rolled three of the,most exceptional scores registered on local alleys this season when' her team appeared against the Brunettes in the North west Girls' Duckpln League. They were S9 43, and 49. Her team won two games out of three at that. The scores: BLONDES. Mlia 1L McAleer. .'.. S3 MI E. Charlton SS Miss K. Metcalf. TO Mix A.

TEMPERAMENT BIG ASSET IN BOWLING Pinspiller With Fiery Temper Is Handicapped Carroll a Striking Example. Arguments for and against the twenty-game series in high school baseball for tho coming spring may be raised by tho faculty athletic ad visers during the winter. Despite the fact that the series last year was poorly attended, there was much in terest in the title event throughout. Paul White, coach of the Business team, is strongly in faVor of the twentv-game series. Each team meets M1. the other twice, playing eight games in all for the title. Wants Longer- Series. "I am strong for the twenty-game series," said White. "Last year, attor the boys got over their nervousness and were down to playing ball, some One games were staged. I distinctly remember several games won by one run which were highly creditable performances all around. "We can teach boys a lot of base ball if we know we are not staking a championship on a single game. The ten-game series is too short to determine a real winner, and I hope we can get grounds for a long series L again this year," said White. Develop More Boys. One or. two other coaches favor the twenty-game series as being the best developer of youngsters. Some claim the long series detracts' from the in terest in the game. There aro two sides to the question, and the cham pionship aspect seems to the coaches the smaller of the two. It is pointed out that the long se ries tends to give all of the teams a better chance to win in the end. Breaks often occur In a single base ball game and the better .team is beaten. Luck plays an important factor in the decisions, but those in charge maintain that the long stretch should be given another trial before being condemned. Postponements Occur. Matches Scheduled January 15, 16, and 17 With Green- leaf, Title Contender. Frank S. Sherman, former world's champion pocket billiard player and now chief exponent of the game here, will meet Ralph Greenleaf, youthful contender for the title, In a series of matches to be .staged at the Royal on tho nights of January 'IS, 1G, and 17, A total of 125 points will be played each night. The scheduled contests between the veteran and tho youngster hold un usual interest. Greenleaf Is only eighteen years of age and already has competed for the championship. Ho was defeated a short time ago in a match for fho title by the present champion, Traversky, but has met and beaten practically every other pocket billiard player in the country. Sherman in practicing for the com ing competition with the boy and ex pects to give the latter a worth-while battle, if not trim him. In the days BASKETBALL GETS START THIS WEEK Real Winter Campaign.

While George Washington In away In Philadelphia tomorrow night tack ling the Temple University quint, Gallaudet will be working hard in preparation for Its gamo with George town In Ryan gym on Wednesday afternoon. . The Gallaudet lads are in no way disheartened over their 21-to-10 defeat at the hands of St. John's College, In Annapolis, yesterday. The two-polrit margin Is more than offset by the fact that tho team played on a strange floor. While the Kendall Greeners were1 never in the van, a bit of luck might have won out for them. Georgetown will be met in the Ryan gyro, and the game is slated as a matinee affair, tho Gallaudet fac ulty ruling that basketball cannot be BARRY AT WORK Red Sox Manager Begins New Du ties Early Tomorrow Morning.

BOB THAYER'S Sporting Gossip The Hammer-Wlelders' Association, of New York, never found such mar velous material as Les Darcy. Temperament, it is said, either makes for breaks one aspirmg to be come a skilled golfer. The same ap plies to one who would be a star bowler. A person with steady nerves and of calm spirit enters either game with much in his favor. One not pos sessing these qualities may attain success, but labors under a handi cap. This prelude has to do with an In teresting discussion which took place among several veteran bowlers at the Royal yesterday, dealing with the faults and good qualities of the city's track pinsplllers.

Every effort is being made to get the most skilled performers of the city in the affair, in order that the winner will be entitled to call him self a bona fide tltleholder. With the Grand Central tournament on and Frank Sherman playing Ralph tomorrow morning. Word has arrived from Philadelphia, that O'Leary Is not taking the trip as a record walk, but Just in the nature of a little pleasure Jaunt. He's going -to make the 140-odd miles in thlrtj two hours, and get to Washington Thursday evening some time, on a schedule of eight hours' actual walk ing per day. Would Defy Skaters. When he gets here, according to advance notices, O'Leary Is going to stage a little performance In which h will walk one mile for every two and one-half that a roller skater can make. ' Walking, says O'Leary, is the best exercise for man, and, if energetically pursued, say to the extent of twenty miles a day, will prolong a man's Ilfs and permanently remove him from the fear of appendicitis. O'Leary was born June 29. 1842, .In County Cork, Ireland, and has been doing distance walking since 1867. So far he just managed to cover 103,462 miles, but he shows no signs of wear,. and has a standing challenge to walk any man alive, "regardless of age. youth or beauty" (these, G. R. are-Mr. O'Leary's own words) S00 miles for $500. He has walked that distance the per because of bad breaks or blown spares," said one of the veterans.

Les Darcy AFTER JUMPING MARK Worthington, Dartmouth, Star, Hopes to Better he Record. No athlete in the United States will be watched with greater interest dur ing the year that Is Just starting than Harry Worthlngton. the .splcndldly conslstent broad Jumper who repre sents Dartmouth College and the Bos ton Athletic Association. t Unquestionably Worthlngton has It in him to beat the American record for his specialty. For three years now he has stood at the head of Uncle Sam's broad jumpers, being a unanimous All American selection for Uiat event In 1914, 1315. and 1915. In those three years lie has suffered but one defeat in a scratch competition. Piatt Adams beat him in the National A. A. U. champion ships at Baltimore In September. 1314. The Dartmouth star should hare his best season this year. He is a senior in college, which means that the in tercollegiate championships next May will mark his passing as a university athlete. It is only natural that Worth Jngton should make u particular ef fort to outdo himself in his last ap pearance In the Dartmouth colors, and If he gets a good day c may look for at least a new Intercollegiate record when the quiet young fellow from Han over. N. H., strips to defend his title in the big college meet. Worthlngton came perilously near to smashing the Intercollegiate long Jump record at Cambridge last May. It tas learned from an official after Uio big college that Harry "took a chance" and let himself out on his very last effort in the" finals and cleared the tre mendous distance of 24 feet 7 Inches, only to -lose the honor because he mis judged his take-off slightly and fouled. Harry Hlllman, the Dartmouth coach, is going to groom Worthlngton for his last campaign as a college athlete with utmost care. Working along these lines, Hlllman kept the triple champion off of the gridiron last fall and lias not allowed Worthlngton to put a Jumping shoe on since the national champion ships at Newark last September. WILL RETAIN OLSON. NEW YORK, Jan. 7. Charles H. Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn Dodg ers, has decided to retain Ivan Olson, shortstop, at least until after the spring training season. Olson had re quested his release, saying he wanted to negotiate for the management of the Vernon Pacific Coast League club. make a spare, and have a pin or two remain standing, he never becomes riled and permit himself to be un steadied. He meets and accepts good and bad luck in the same spirit and plugs along making the roost of ev erything." Said another: "Johnny Vaeth (the Grand Central star) can roll duckpins as well as any one I know. But his temperament, an shown on the alleys, is not so well suited to the game as Krauss'. Vaeth, from appearances. takes everything to heart. When things break wrong It Irritates him. It may be that Vaeth is more enthu siastlcthanKrauss and It means more to him to "get what he hits for." Carroll Has Fault. Bernie Carroll, the well-known Royal, is a fit example of how tem perament affects a bowler's ability. Many times when Carroll hits tho beadpln and gets a poor break he "goes up In the air," and shoots tho remaining spheres down the alley In half-haphazard fashion to get tho scattered maples. Eliminating this fault, it is believed, Carroll could add four or five pins to his average, which would make him the leading bowler of the pity. Charley Wright, of the crack Con tinentalx, has the same weakness as Carroll. He could materially increase his average through careful cleaning up of the pins after splitting 'cm.

Kid Williams has yet to issue his challenge to Les Darcy. Eastern will probably be without the services of Eddie Tomlln, who pitched the Capitol Hill lads to a base ball championship laslj spring. Ac cording to the latest reports Tomlin is in St. Louis and Is expected to get a big league tryout when the spring opens up. Central basketers received a real setback when Howard Clssell, captain of the team was reporteu out wltn pneumonia. Just before the Eastern game tho other day, it was reported that Cissell was taken to the hospital" for an operation. He is also captain of the championship tennis team, and the possessor of the only dual honor at Central In the captaincy line. Ed Kelly, former Business High School pitcher, is at Yale University, and is expecting to get out with the freshman team as soon as the call comes for Indoor work. Kelly was at Dean Academy last year. Willie Thomas, of Eastern, is com ing in for all sorts of praise. S. T. Kimball, coach of Eastern last year, discovered Thomas. "I never saw more energy In 115 pounds in my life,' said Kimball. Thomas lias earned his letter In basketball, football, and baseball, which Is quite an achievement. The popularity of local college teams with the Naval Academy Is reaching the point where the most satisfactory relations obtain. This is as It should be. Of late years local college teams In all branches of sport have worked up to a point where they are considered worthy fpemen. The Navy is quick to see the advantage of scheduling tho Washington teams. Georgetown, C. U and George Wash ington are on the Navy basketball schedule while two of these teams play the Midshipmen In baseball. Maryland State. Catholic University, and Georgetown are on the Navy foot ball schedule. What could be fairer wo ask? No long Jump is needed in transporting teams from here, the guarantees, are not excessive and re sults are satisfactory both ways. That noise is caused by the gather ing of .the goir clans for their battlo of next Tuesday In New York. Western Is the only team in the high school circuit which has abso lutely green material for basketball. The Westerners retained but une. play er, Harry Chamberlalne, who was In part of a high school game last year. GETS HIGH HONOR. E. V.

Call recently won to events In tho Inter-class meet, show ing the way home In tho sprint events. As fcchoo! starts early next fall, September 17 being the date set for the gathering, tho high school faculty advisers chose October 10 as the opener for the football campaign. About the most ingenious argument against the contemplated professional football league is that which goes Into hysterics concerning the appear ance of big league baseball players on the various elevens. Football and baseball are two vastly different games, and no professional baseball player, barring Jim Thorpe, who has yet to prove himself a baseball player, can afford to ruin his money-making ability for life by engaging In foot ball. Dave Robertson might have beep a marvelous pitcher, but for an Injury he received playing football in Virginia. An Injured shoulder might ruin nny player, spoiling his throw ing arm. Indeed, most big league lubs refuse to allow their players to engage in any sport but baseball. If tho new league goes through It will bo composed of football stars, not baseball brllliantH.

Tech is having Its hands full this week. Aside from the two games a!-' ready scheduled, Gonzaga will be played on Wednesday at the Gonzaga gym.

"The art of fighting with mitts is a good thing for any boy." Looks like tho United States Golf Association would have, a regular meeting next month? When Washington was named as one of the renters for tho devel opment of Junior tournaments the National Lawn Tennis Association took a step In the right direction. Louis I.

It will be a question of a few years before some of Doyle's schoolboy players will be competing for the titles here. The National Association Is making a play for tho youngsters.

A plan is un der way to play an East vs. West series of lawn tennis team matches this winter on the Pacific Coast as soon as George M. Church and Har old .Throckmorton, the New Jersey stars, return from their quest of the Far East championship In Manila. Two of the following players from this section of the cjuntry have been mentioned as likely to make the Jour ney to the coast and there team up with Church and Throckmorton against the West: Robert Llndley Murray, Karl H. Behr, and Joseph J. Armstrong. These players would make a formi dable combination for anybody tnai mlcht be brought against them, al though It Is not definitely settled yet Just which of tha trio named will do able to make the necessary arrange ments for the trip. Murray, while a native of California. Is now located in the East and will represent this side of the continent If he plays. William M. Johnston, Clarence J. Griffin, Johnny Strachan, Maurice McLoughlln. and Roland Roberts, all Callfornlans. are among those from whom the West would have no trou ble In making a selection to face the Invasion from the East. On the asphalt courts of California the na tlve sons would be at a distinct ad vantage over their Eastern rivals, as was the case last year when the two sections met on the coast. That is all bunk, according to the veteran. All there is to be done in to cultivate the 'stride that will get you there with the least effort. And when one has walked for twenty-four hours on end, to the distance of 12S miles, as -O'Leary has done, one ought to know. OUT FOR HOCKEY His SI PAUXTIS SIGNS. CHESTER, Pa., Jan. 7. SI Pauxtlf?.
