VETERANSWELCOME CHANGE Mike Martin Will See That No body Overworks and That All Are in Shape. Br LOUIS A. JJOUGHER. AUGUSTA. Gju, March L The Initial workout of the Washington pitchers Is booked for tomorrow morning. Mike Martin, the alert trainer of the athletes, has been filled up with orders by Man ager Gritnith and he is In shape to reel them out until the Old Fox arrives. Neither Bert Gallia nor George Du mont had arrived when the first squad of the Griffmen came to town, but both are expected before night fall. The squad under John Henry sot here about an hour late, and found a cool breeze blowing, but no rain In sight. Mike Martin and Nick Altrock met the boys and- escorted them to their hotel. The afternoon was spent in sightseeing-. Two training sessions daily are on the program for the pitchers during the next week here. .The first one-will begin about 10 o'clock In the morning. The second will begin about 1:30 In the aft ernoon. This allows plenty of leisure for the boys. Until the batsmen arrive the pitchers will do little but warm up. Three-catcher are here, John Henry. Eddie Ain smlth. and Ed Gharrlty. They are well able to give each pitcher Individual at tention. "Will Strengthen Arms. "I want the boys to strengthen their arms, that's all." said Mike Martin to day. "For a couple of days they will be toting lame whips, but that Is to be expected. As soon as the first soreness wears off, they will be all right till the end of the season. "Every pitcher win be watched so that be will not pick up any poor styles of delivery. Nobody will be allowed to overwork. Overwork la the worst thing that can happen to a pitcher at this time' of the year. "Most of the boys seem to be In good condition and, from my point of view, that assists me. There won't be so mucn ruboing for them. Any over weight wil have to run it off. This ap- Nplles "especially to Jim Shaw, who needs a lot of work to get Into shape. Pleased With Camp. The players arriving here today are much pleased with the training camp. Those who ho,ve put In any time at Charlottesville are delighted with the change to Augusta, where the outlook is for much warm, balmy weather. "Getting ajray-from that house at Charlottesville is the best thing for us veterans," mused John" Henry on the train last night. "You know. It became most tiresome sitting around that training quarters, with nothing to do, except to play bridge. "When the others get here, they ought to be delighted. We've got some good streets to tramp, we're living at a regular hotel and, after our 'practice is done, there's some thing to see, even If this Is but a small town." Journey Is Uneventful. The trip from the Capital was un eventful. Most of the boys "hit the hay," early, believing they would have to get into uniform as soon as they arrived here. All were up bright and early today, taking a peek at the country. Mrs. Alnsmith remained with the party until the train reached Ashe vllle, N C, where she left. She will stay there with her family until the opening of the reason, returning to Washington at that time. Dot: Ayers hopped aboard the train at Petersburg, Va., and immediately got busy In a pitch game, cleaning up almost as much as 37 cents after two hours' play Poc hopes to be one of Griffs regulars this season, apd reports in thape to start right now. OFFICERS FOR CAMPS Military Training for Players As- sured. Says Johnson. Tliat Captain Huston's plan for the military drilling of bat-eball ilaiTH at the training camps will go through Is a certain!, if Han Johnson' word, in a letter to Clark Griffith, manager of the Griffmen, uliich was received todat. lh to be taken for granted. Johnson In autliorit for the state ment that the go eminent has prom ised to send officers to the various camps to show the athletes how to handle Uieinselveivin time of war. "We arc going into this thing In a whole-hearted manner," said Manager Griffith today. "Our park will be at the bervlce of the Goernment at all times for military training purposes. not only for the ball players, but for any one eli-e who goes into it with the proper Hpint." GANDIL TO WHITE SOX Former First Sacker of Washing ton Sold by Indians. CLEVELAND, Ohio, March 1. Chick Oandll, the clever first baseman of the Indians, has been sold to the Whito Sox, it was announced today. The deal involves spot cash, no play ers being included in the transac tion. Gandil played a corking game at the initial corner last season, but -was unable to accomplish much at bat. He will fill a weak spot in the White Sox line-up. Manager Clar ence Rowland having tried a number of players there without success. If Gandil strikes the battlnc stride that earned him a name with the1 Washington club several seasons ago the "White Sox are bound to be prom inent contenders for the pennant. Clash of Brewer and Griffith in Fifty-yard Dash a Feature Tomorrow Night Fields Well Balanced. Small but select fields which assure keen competition are promised In all events In the annual Indoor track meet to be held under the auspices of George Washington University at Convention Hall tomorrow night. Manager William S. James, of the G. W. U. trade team, has spared no ef fort to get all details In shap3.for the games. Athletes will be shown every possible consideration, and will be bandied with dispatch and notified promptly when they are to compete in the events. , naee Attractive. The open and scholastic events, as well as the South Atlantic collegiate struggles, are attracting unusual at tention. The coming meeting between Brooke Brewer, the Maryland State star sprinter, and Dorsey Griffith, of Georgetown, in the fifty dashes. Is causing a deal of speculation. Contrary to the decision of the judges in the Georgetown meet, Grif fith was picked as the -winner In the final of the collegiate fifty. Another meeting between the flyers Is expect ed to furnish many thrills for the spectators tomorrow. Relays Are Ready. The relay races which have proved so attractive In the past have been matched up and are announced. Hart ford A. C, midgets unbeaten In two meets this season, will bo run against by the Tech High School youngsters. Western has asked for a return race with the Baltimore Poly Juniors, and will meet them tomorrow night. Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, Washington Canoe Club, and the Washington W. R. and E. Co. have entered in a relay race. Baltl-I more City, John Marshall, and Tome BROWNS' PROSPECTS BETTER THAN EVER Fielder Jones Will Take South Several Promising Young sters for Trial. ST. LOUIS, March 1. With several promising recruits to choose from as a tonic for his Brownies, Fielder Jones will enter spring training this year with a much better prospect than a year ago. He will not have to contend with Federal Leaguers, be lieved to be real ball players. He will have the benefit of a year's ex perience with the old Brownies. His selections are bound to be better then last spring. Jones, silent as ever, ventured the assertion today that he will be In the fight. "Of course, I'm hoping." ho said. "But. you know, I never make early predictions." In an off-hand manner he indicated that he has unlimited faith in his team. If he can get the right sort of a start, he think, the Browns will be hard to catch. The infield struggle for St. Louis berths promises to be a thriller. There is lots of dead wood hanging onto the Browns coattalls. Derrlll Pratt and Jimmy Austin, guardians of second and third bases, respec tively, will have to trek pretty fast to keep up with a pace that probably will be set by some youngsters. Austin Han Competition. Third base may see more action than second. Stevenson, Western League flash, and BIgler, from the North Pennsylvania League, are ex-' pected to make things pretty inter esting for Austin. Every year, Tiqw eer, things are made Interesting for Austin on advance reports, and he Is still there. Rumors of the future this year also may be of the Wall Street leak kind. Jones declared the pen nant was lost last year at third base, so Austin will have to show at his best Kill Kenworthy, veteran minor league star and a former Federal Leaguer, is going to have another fling at the majors. He will be given a shot at second base. Kenworthy is one of the most versatile players In the game. He has been known to catch and pitch with some skill. Ills utility powers probably will land him a steady job, even If he doesn't horn in ahead of Pratt. Fares Hard Tank. Paulette will try hard to replare Slsler at first He has a hard job In prospect. Lavan seems to have the shortfleld position sewed up. Ernie Johnson, among the Federals still In the big ring, will make a try for It. but Hoc Lavan Is certain he'll stay. Two colt catchers. Hale and White, will appear. It was the catching de partment that cost the St. Louis ag gregation the loss of many games. The veterans, Severoid and Hartley, will be on the Job, anxious to be in shape and keep the youngsters from taking their places. Sloan, Jacobson. and Yardley are the new faces In the outfield section, with Shotton, Marsans, and Miller back among the last year gardeners. Yardley U touted a "mile" swatter, and If he can bang them here he'll get on regular. The pitching staff will get lots of attention from Fielder, who hopes to make his hillock performers the strongest in the Johnson circuit. LAPP RELEASED. CHICAGO, March 1. Jack Lapp, the White Sox catcher, has been released to the Columbus club of the American Association. are in a mile event, while the George Washington fraternity relays, five In number, will gallop around the halt Mercersburg, State Seconds, Virginia Freshmen, and the Baltimore Polys are in the same event.

A. relay, have been matched. Ont For Titles. ; Both Georgetown and Virginia are out for the South Atlantic titles. The Georgetown team Is one point ahead of Virginia. There will be the pole vault, two-mile run, 440-yard dash, and two-mile relay. The South Atlantic quarter prom ises to be one of the greatest races of the year. Gates, Griffith, Auray, and Connolly, composing Georgetown's re lay team, are entered. Sullivan, of HoDklns: Straus, of the same college: Gladney, Keevlan, and Bobbins, of Washington and Lee, and .Walace, Round, Stone, Wilson, Goodwyn, and Minor, of Virginia, have all been en tered.

Peter Carney, former Middle Atlan tic handicapper, will be the starter. Joseph OToole, G. U., Is clerk of the I course. ANOTHER CIRGDIT TO OPEN UP HERE Sixteen - Year - Old Baseball Teams to Be Stated Off This Summer. Washington amateur baseball players sixteen years of age and un der probably will be formed Into a Junior baseball league this summer. Harry E. Late, who started the Capi tal City League last season, is sponsor for the young circuit about to be or ganized. A meeting will be called of all those interested in the circuit at 1411 ,New York ave'nue northwest on Wednesday, March 7, at 8 p. m. Representatives Asked. Captains and managers of junior teams are asked to make an appear ance to takp part In the nfeetlng. The league will probably consist of six or eight clubs. A schedule will probably be ar ranged calling for three games a week. An effort will be made to ob tain the use of a diamond In Potomac Park. Youncstera Active. Several teams have already made known their interest In the formation of the new circuit. It Is expected that no trouble will be encountered in getting at least eight teams to Join the league. Efforts arc under way to obtain the services of competent umpires to han die the games. It Is desired to have full nine Inning games. Officers for the organization will be elected at the meeting, and the business of getting the circuit under way gone Into when the teams get together. CALDWELL IN PANAMA And Isn't Going So Well, Either, Is Report. NEW YORK, March 1. Now comes another letter from Panama confirm lng reports that Ray Caldwell, the missing pitcher of the Yankees, is en Joying the balmy breezes of the Canal Zone. This letter differs from the previous one, however, in one Important re spect. It gives the discouraging In formation that Caldwell, tiluvinir for the Colon team, was called from cen ter field to the pitcher's box in the setond inning of a game plajed late In January, ana that after showing well for a time, was hammered here, there, and everywhere by the uppos ing nalxmcn until the fans with thumbs down ami in loud, acrid tones, demanded: "Take him out" Of course, the best of pitchers have their off days, and perhaps Caldwell was experiencing a blun Monday. On the other hand, perhaps, his lovo of doing things in his own way may )i exacting the usual toll. Onen again, mayhap, Caldwell has a double. The letter was under date of Janu ary 28. and by this time the really great pitcher may be- headed north ward to fill that contract with the Yankees which calls for $8,000 a year. FORMER PLAYER DEAD.

GYMNAST8 IN MEET. NEW YORK. March l.-It was an nounced from A. A. U headquarters yesterday that the riational gvmnastle championships would be held at tl, New York, Turn Vereln, April 20, Coach Makes No Remarks on Prospects for Coming Season, "I don't know what kind of a base ball team we will have until I see the candidates," Is the way Charlie Mo ran, coach of the Catholic University baseball team, puts It in summing up the Brooklanders' prospects. All of which Is a polite way of get ting oi)t of advancing any Informa tion whjch may later be the cause for various alibis. Coach Moran is one of those clamlike individuals who says little about what he is going to do, but generally goes out mid dois it, and then, best of all, says less about his achievements. Loses Several Vti, The Brooklander coach will have sev eral places to fill this season. Don' Johnson, mainstay in the box for the past couple of seasons, has grabbed a sheepskin and Is facing the high cose of living with the rest of us. Caffrcy and Cahlll, Inflelders extraordinary will not be with the team this sprintr, .while McCue and Croker, pitchers, will also be on the missing list. With these players gone, Moran will have to depend upon the Incoming class to boost up the team. "Sheets" Shewalter, Tech's short fielder of last season, Is out at the Brookland Insti tution, and will probably make a bid for the position. Battery Is Intact. H. White and Frank Fahey, who Is captain of the team, will probably form the first string battery. Ken- drick- is another pitcher who can be counted u$on, while Barry can be re lied upon to help out in catching. Of the veterans of last season sev eral will be ready when the call comes. Pat Rooney, Delahunt, Short- ley.Butler, and Eddy, outfielders, will be among the ranks striving for the garden positions. AI White, the vet eran shortstop, Rogers, Harrington and Killlan in the Infield are almost sure to land berths. Seems Well Fortified. Despite the failure of Coach Moran to give any Inkling of the possible strength of the Catholic University team, the Brooklanders appear to be pretty well fortified. The schedule calls for a number of games with the best college nines in the country. It will be remembered that Moran was one of the few successful coaches against Harvard last year. The Crim son players lost but four games and Catholic University showed Eddie. Mahan several things about baseball playing. Harvard, Tufts, Rock Hill Opens. Rock Hill "gets the first game on the Catholic University schedule. The Marylanders will come down here March 24. Colby, Gallaudet. Amherst, Lafayette, Syracuse, Holy Cross, Yale, Penn State, Boston College, Tufts and Harvard are all on the Brooklander's list for early season games. Coach Moran takes the Catholic University team takes a Northern trip on Wednesday, May 2, and will play return games with practically all of the teams visiting here In early sea son.

The Brook lyn club, of the National League, champions of the circuit presided over by John K. Tener, approaches the dif ficulties of a new season In a -very wobbly and uncertain ocntHUon. Un less Charles H. Ebbets or some of his ball players weaken the Dodgers will present a strange front when they take the field on the opening day. The Dodgers are far from champion ship timber this year, compared with the array of talent that will be thrown Into the field by other clubs. They would have a hard time keeping the pace against Giants, Phillies, and Braves, even with their full strength out In the open. The punch that car ried them into the stretch last year is lacking this spring, for it doesn't carry sufficient power. Daubert on First Base On first base the Dodgers will have Jake Daubert, unless the Dodger star shows up In such bad health that he can't play ball. His contract, forced from Ebbets during the troublous days of the Federal League, has an other year to run at a substantial figure, and he has little to worry about for the future. His health has been decidedly bad of late, however, and Fred Merkle or Warren Adams, the latter a likely looking recruit, may have a first base assignment. George Cutshaw, demon second baseman, who jumbled up the world's series for the Dodgers, probably will keep his station. Fred Merkle is to be tried out at shortstop. He has done well In nearly every other position and may supplant Ian Olsen and the various other shortstoppers who havo been given chances. Third base Isn't so much of a prob lem, for the veteran Mike Mowrcy did a good Job last year an probably will keep right on 'doing it. Johnston Is Certain. Jimmy Johnston right now is the only outfielder definitely known to be ready to start the trip to Hot Springs. HI Myers, Buck Wheat, and Casey Stengel, the bulwark of attack and defense last summer, have been rewarded with slashes In their sala ries. Naturally, they are peeed. anil have announced there will be no sign lng by them until the original figure are put Jiack. hbbets has declared he will make another slash If they don't ship In the signed documents.

McGraw expects to use him B a utility outfielder. Jack Is In fine shape. He has hit, the ball hard slnro cnmlnjr here, and In addition Is fielding splendidly. Jack lias not forgotten how to make circus catches of thu variety that saved many a game for the Giants In the past and served to Increase his pop ularity. Jim Thorpe yesterday lifted a pop flly to short left on one occa sion, and Jack, running back under It. caught the ball In his gloved hand, fell over backward, turned a complete somersault and sat up still clutching the ball tightly. mate here la Just right in spring and fall and there are few real hot days In summer when it Is too hot for the game. Last year tennis was played on even the hottest days as late as eight In the evening and some outly ing districts claimed their club players were at It a half hour later. Indica tions point to the coming season as being the banner year here. Sporting: good stores say they are already doing business for the tennis follow era. We know the spring Is coming be cause Harry Late has been around. Perhaps you don't know that Harry Late is the father of the "Short Pants League" here. Late blew into town last year, and got all the small boys together and formed a league. He had so many applications that another circuit was formed. Then he played a post-season series between the winners of the two leagues, and then up and challenged the winner of a similar league In Baltimore. And bis team won out. Now that la Just what we think Is the right thing:. It has always been our policy to en courage the youngsters. If a few of the" oldsters In golf and tennis would spare a little time helping: the kids along we would soon have a lot of real champions to take the places of those who are being laid on the shelf. We must admit that Joe England was right on the job in Baltimore last Saturday. England's Hopkins athletes were discriminated against if anything, which Is our Idea oof handlcaping when your own team Is In the running.

Claims Poor Showing With the Braves Last Year a Result of Stallings' Interference. By JOE VILA. NEW YORK. March L When Sher wood Magee signed with the Boston Braves the other day he accepted a salary cut of $2,300. He received 15,500 last year, and his salary this season will be 14.300. Magee vainly asked for 35,000, bat It Is understood that Manager Stallings refused to give his consent- Magee blames Stallings for his slump In batting:. Ha , says that he has not been allowed to nse his own Julgment at the horn plate. Peeved at StalUas. "In a game against the Giants last year," says Magee, "I came to the bat with men on third and second and two out. The count was three and one when I knew that Benton would" put the next one over. I always could hit a left-handed pitcher's first ball. but Stallings ordered me to keep the bat on my shoulder. "So Benton pitched over a second strike, and McGraw, on the coaching: lines, gave me a laugh. Benton then delivered a curve ball and I went out on a foul, whereupon I was uamer- clfully panned by Stallings, whose "or- ; ders I had obeyed to the letter." Magee still hope that the Braves will trade him to the Cincinnati Reds. WooJd Protect Club. "It Is my duty to treat the players fairly and to provide Brooklyn fans with g-ood baseball." said President Ebbets. of the Brooklyn clnb, yester day. "But I most protect the Inter ests of the club's stockholders. As i president I will be blamed If there Is a deficit at the end of the coming: season. "In view of the complications with Germany, the Brooklyn clnb must take all the risks. A poor ball sea son, resulting from war, will not in jure the players, who will draw their salaries Just the same, even If our boll park Is empty at times. - Considers Stockholders. "Last year the Brooklyn club paid' out 3135,000 In salaries and bonuses, exclusive of the world's series. Not counting: this year's bonuses wa are obliged to pay 370,000 in salaries, which will give the players' a fair shake. wThe stockholders did not In vest their money for tho fun of the wing. -Jiney are enuuea icsomo re turns for their" investments, and It Is up to me to show at least a reason able profit when this year comes to an end. "If we should allow the players to. dictate their own terms, the Brooklyn club soon would be in financial diffi culty.
