PRAISES GEORGE DUMONT Crane Shows Well in Field, But Poorly at Bat, in Practice Games. By LOUIS A. DOUGIIER. AUGUSTA, Gl, March IS. Manager Griffith has begun to pick out the deadwood from the live timber In his training- camp here.-. "With Joe Can tillon,. manager or the Minneapolis rlub of the1 American Association, looking on the. Old Fox sent hla, play ers through a brace bf practice games yesterday: , He -wanted Cantillon to e -'the players he might be able to iW In 'Minneapolis thla coming sum mer. J can't talk about letting anybody go now," admitted Manager Griffith, when, the last, player had left the field. "Of course 'if a -player can't fit into mjrball ciirt,,I'Il try to land him some where ln-aVegular Job, and Joe Can tllton has first -call on anybody he wants, But J don't know now whom he'needs or when. I'm In the dark as nuck aa you are," - - - " ' -, Camtilroo polled Up. Cantillon, looking like a beau brum mel hVthe latest Tstyle-'of p'lnch-back clothing; watched 'both practice ses sions .yesterday and was ready; for more' today; He'decllned-to talk about hltrieeds In the wsV of ball placers, but aid .Kay that he hoped past .ar rangements? between -his club and Manager Griffith would continue. The Minneapolis manager says he would like to have' Georg Dumont back with his club .once more. He admit .that' he knows very little about. Jim S,hay or Charlie Humph ries, 'bat that he might be able to use -ofifor- both of them. N t Wants Dumont. VlHimont Is a good pitcher when he is tightr-says Cantillon. "If-he falls to ma)c'e good with Griff this spring, I'll be- more than glad to get him. He can win In my league. I don't know anlrtElagJabout JShaw or Humphries. I'll have to depend on Griff about them". -Yes. I need some players, but I may get them somewhere else." Cantillon was strong in his boost ing' of Mike Menoskey. He thinks Mike will yet become a major league. bulj due aamits tnat tne youngster neeus a 101 of -experience. 11a was not'-i-'lblt "backward in saying that he believed Griff, would keep Menoskey, training him In big league ways on this beach at Georgia avenue. .. Games Add Pep. Two practice games, interjected in to the daily workouts 'yesterday erred to enliven Interest among the players. Fr6m now on two games will be played every day, unless bad weather Interferes. Already the two teams are scrapping aroupd the "hotel lobby about their relative strength. The first player to drop out of the line up was "Ruckle" Berry, the Chicago amateur star. He covered left field In the morning game, but sat on the bench in the afternoon. Sara Crane was sent to left field, ahd Mike Moran. the Wash ington sandlotter. placed at shortstop. It is almost certain that Berry will not be tarried after the team reaches "Wash ington. Crane Weak Batter. Crane is carrying a lame arm. HU status with the club is rather uncertain. He looks like a wonderful fielder, but at the bat Jie Is a weak sister. At any rate, that Is how he Impresses the on looker now. It Is possible that he may pick up in his hitting rafter a while, but Manager Griffith Is not counting much on that The Baltimore lad is in poor health, which is handicapping his efforts. It is manifestly unfair to Judge any of the players by their work in the first day's contest. Sawyer, working his second day, could not hold a thrown ball. Menoskey was a strike-out fiend. Crane could not hit at all. Kay Morgan looked like a million dollars compared with the rest of his team mates. Ayrrs Shows Beat. In the afternoon's contest Sawyer went to second base and Mprgan to third, awyer looked far better at the midway than he did on the hot corner, having a shorter distance to throw- hla sore wing. Of the pitchers Doc Ayera made the best impression. The Hlllsvllle mountaineer worked through three innings and disposed of the enemy in one two-three order. His control was perfect and his raise ball In working order. The- rookies simply could not find his shoots'. "Cuckoo" Jamleson traveled four frames in the afternoon, and, al though one run was made off him, it was not b's fault. Sawyer's error ac counted for that After Shanks had tripled over Smith's head. REYBURN QUALIFIES. BELLEAU. Fla, March 13. W. S. Reyburn, Chevy Chase Club, "Wash ington, D.

With Mobile, of the South- trn Association. , Starting Lineup of GrifFmen, Barring Possible Changes At First and Short, Appears To Be Old Combination. AUGUSTA. Ga.. March 11 After tak ing a peek at the various players work ing out here under the eye of Man ager Gri ftlth, it Is possible to discuss with some accuracy the probable lineup for the coming campaign. "Washington will be represented by the same team that finished the 1016 season. Only at first base and In the short field Is there any apparent contest this spring. Whether Shanks or Judge holds down first base Is a prob lem. It Is more than likely that Judge, If he falls to solve southpaw twirling, will be benched In favor of Shanks whenever a lefthanded pitcher opposes the team. Dick HobllUel and Del Gainer al ternate at first with the worjd'xhamp lon Red Sox and Manager Griffith Is inclined to follow the Boiton example with "Shanks and Judge. t( McBride a Certainty. George McBride Is a fixture at ahortstop this spring. Sam Crane and Mike Moran. two shortflefd can didates, will hardly be able to defeat the veteran star of the American League. McBride's excellent physical condition, his superior brain power and his experience will give him the edge over both his younger competi tors. Crane is a clever fielder, but his hitting record In the minor leagues offers little n which tp build a major league reputation as a regular. Crane does not appear to be In the best of health and this is handicap ping him here so far. Moran either has a weak arm or has a faulty style of throwing, and Manager Griffith was quick to notice iu moran Is a good fielder, but needs more ex perience, before beating out McBride for a regular Job. Depends On Pitehers. Ultimate triumph or failure of the "Washington club depends this year, as In other years, on the pitching staff. If the twirlers deliver the GRIFFITH BOOSTS CHARLIEJAMIESOfl Bewails Fact Youngster. Js Lefthander, as He Might Otherwise Make Infielifc AUGUSTA. Ga., March 13. "Would not that kid make a wonderful In flelder if he were right handed?" It was Manager Griffith talking and he was looking at Charlie Jaraleson hopping around the shortfield, taking grounders on every side and -shoving them to first base like rifle shots. "That kid Is such a good all-around ball player that he can always find plenty to do on a ball club," continued the Old Fox. "He Is a capable out fielder, can do a little turn at first base and Is not a bad pitcher. I wish he was right-handed, for then I d find a place for him in my Infield. Jamleson Will Stick. Jamleson Is likely to be with the Washington club all season, even If he doesn't appear on the mound In many games.' Being a southpaw, he will be valuable for work against the batters whenever a lefthander is to oppose the team. He can fill In when ever an outfielder Is Injured and is also available for first base duty. Jamleson's nickname Is "Cuckoo." and It is "Cuckoo" here and "Cuckoo" there all over the ball field during the dally drills. The little fellow is very popular with his teammates. Can Control Ivories. In addition to his all-around ability on the diamond, "Cuckoo" Is quite the best pool and billiard playeer on the club. To see him control the Ivories on the green cloth Is a Joy foreer. Only the veteran Nick Altrock Is to be compared with Jamleson, but then Nick has sworn off playing, and so "Cuckoo" reigns undisputed. Jamleson is married and the father of a bouncing baby boy. His family lives in Washington with htm during the season. WEEGHMAN TO SPEND Cub Owner Declmares He Hat Hun dred Thousand Ready. NEW YORK, March 13. "I have 1100,000 to spend for star players," said President Weeghman, of the Chicago Cubs, recently. "If that Isn't enough there Is more money in the bank to be devoted to the strength of the Cubs." But so far Weeghman has beerf unable to spend even a small part of his big bank-roll. He offered 150,000 to the Cardinals for Hornsby and Snyder several weeks ago, but Miller Hugglns has refused to sane- only to be turned down. It is understood now that he has lines 'out for Hans Lobert of the Giants, but that McGraw has refused ot part wlthh the Dutchman. Weegh man also would like to buy Johnny Ever from the Braves, In view of the present condition of Larry Doyle, but Stalllngs has no Idea ot letting the peppery Trojan get away. So, unless one of his rivals comes to his rescue, Weeghman wjll be com pelled to lock the money in the safe and worry, along with the rather in ferior material that Manager Mitchell is beginning to whip Into shape at Pasalena, CaL goods, the team may be successful. If they don't. It will be the same old story of defeat Smith, Zeb Milan, and Sam Rice are sure to be the outfielders playing reg ularly. Mike Menoskey Is expected to be retained, though he will do bench duty. Mike Is green to many things In big league baseball, but he is young and can learn. Horace Milan may be kept a while to demonstrate whether or not h has overcome his weakness against curve ball pitching. sTf he has not he win be sent back to the minors, probably to Minneapolis. Should Have Speed. For one thing, the Grlffmen should have plenty of speed this year. Sam Rice, Zeb Milan. Joe Judge and Joe Leonard have winged heels. If Judge Is In the game, the team Is greatly benefited In Its base-running department; for Judge Is the best base stealer on the team. Sam Rice's speed should make him dangerous on the paths, and the train ing he Is now receiving should great ly Increase his skill In this particular Leonard Is not a' slow man, and with him In the game regularly the team "Will be faster than with Mor gan in the line-up. Bay's Fanny Position. Ray Morgan's position on the club Is a funny one. He Is not considered quite good enough to forge his way to a regular berth, and yet he Is too good to be let out. Morgan will be retained as an extra Inflelder. "When the reason opens "Washing ton fans will find Shanks, Foster, Mc Bride and Leonard" In the Infield, with Smith, Zeb Milan and Rice In the gardens. Johnson, Harper, Gallia and Du mont are certain .to be called upon for regular mound tasks. Doe Ayers and Shaw-may be kept, but they must show Manager Griffith reasons for their remaining in fast company. The team which will be depended upon to carry "Washington to the front is fast, fairly heavy at the bat and has good pitching maybe. NEVER UN TWICE IN THESE RACES Kentucky Derby and Frontier Handicap Have No Repeaters. DETROIT, March 12. In the mat ter of competitive history the Fron tier handicap, the Windsor Jockey Club's classic 10,000 Inaugural for the 1017, Isn't unlike the Kentucky Derby, Thoroughbred history relates that there is no record of a horse 6r own er ever repeating In the quest ot vic tory in the Derby and the same facts apply to the Frontier, the richest prize offered to horsemen that will campaign their stables in the Domin ion of Canada this season. Sixteen, years ago St. Hera, owned by Joseph W. Pugh. chief of police In Covington. Ky., captured the first Frontier conceited, and from that time to the present era a different horse and a different owner flashed across the horizon of the thorough bred world locally. Failed to Repeat. Several tried to break the spell, but the stage never was set for an encore. Some of the winners performed credit ably In big events after capturing the Windsor feature, while others passed on in the natural course of events to total oblivion or retirement. Until 1000 the race was for three-year-olds strictly, and the distance was the same as now, a mile and an eighth. Thereafter the scope of elig ibility was widened to permit horses of three years or more to compete. The history of the event up to the change In conditions la as follows: Year. Horse and Owner. 1002 St. Hera (Joseph W. Pugh). 1003 Claude (II. J. Daly). 1004 Zarkee (Lester Wendel). 1003 King of Trop (George Hen drle). 1006 Peter Sterling (A. Brown & Co.). 1907 Jacoma (Charles McCafferty). 1908 Charley Gilbert (George M. Hendrle). Array of Winners.

Travis, one of the most prominent figures In American golf, who is due In Washington shortly to look over the public golf course here, announces that he is through with amateur golf. He had until March 1 to make his decision whether to give up golf course architecture or continue as an amateur. Travis- says creating la more soul satisfying than winning goltup.

Payne and Jones, who were substi tutes last year, are ready to step Into regular positions this season. Catchers Scarce. Catchers are scarce at Business this year. Coach White admits he will have a hard time working up a battery and a first and second base man. The loss of Hawk in the out field la sure to be felt. Carl 'Wasamann, pitcher on last year's nine.

LOfc ANGELES, March 13. Maurice E. McLoughlin, the famous California "Comet," defeated Harold A. Throck morton, of New Jersey, national In terscholaatlc champion, in the last tournament match of the annual East West lawn tennis series hefe yes terday. McLoughlin won at 6 t, 04. 4 fl. 83. Miss Mary K. Browne, former na tional champion, created the sensa tion of the day by vanquishing Miss Molla BJurstedt, present holder of the title, In the final match of the wom en's round robin singles by a score of 75, 60. The California girl simply romped away with the match, after Miss BJurstedt had run Into a lead of C 2 on games In the first set, and took eleven games in a row. Mrs. May Sutton Bundy, who won the round robin by defeating "both Miss Browne and Miss BJurstedt, was fully extended to defeat the national champion on Saturday, while Miss Browne did not give her a great deal of trouble. It was therefore ex pected that Miss BJurstedt would win with plenty to spare from Miss Browne, hence the surprise was all the greater. GOLFERS TO MEET District Association to Award Tour ney atCommerclal Club. The annual meeting of the District of Columbia Golf Association will be held tonight at the Commercial Club.

The honor of scoring the first home run of the training season of the Yankee-, be longs to Benjamin Shaw, a broad shouldered and heavy set rookie. Hans Wagner's desire to retire from baseball brings to mind the fact that some of the best known players in th big leagues finished activity on the dia mond last year. Christopher Matnew scn. now manager of the Clncim-at! Reds, never will face opposing bats men again. Miner Brown, Matty's old rival, was declared a free agent by the Cubs last fall and win act as Tinker's assistant In Columbus this year. Na poleon Rucker, once the best lefthanded pitchers In the National League, appear ed In a Brooklyn uniform for the last time during the world's series with the Red Box In October. Mike Dolan, Chief Bender. Charley Doom. Babe Adams, Bob Harmon. George McQuillan, Joe Connolly, Otto Knabe, Mike Mowrey, and George. Chalmbers also have finish ed their labors In the Tener circuit and will be seen no more in fast company.. Napoleon Lajoler BUI Can-Iran. Jack Lapp, Jean Dubuc Rube Oldring, Ray Keating, and Roy Hartzell are the lead ing American Leaguers who have pass ed out of the big show. Father Time Is responsible for the disappearance of all these favorites, and by the time an other season rolls around he probably will have singled out others. National Lawn Tennis Association officials In the East should think twice before sending another such team to play the Westerners. There are more reasons than one why the Eastern contingent should not have been given an opportunity to take a beating. Church. Throckmorton, Alexander, Pell. Frentlce, and our own Connie Doyle, as a team. Impress us none too favorably. Had Williams, Murray, Washburn, Church, and Mathey been lent a different story mlgnt have been written. There is some satisfac tion in knowing that in the long vic tory scored by the Easterners Doyle was the prominent figure. Qet the right sort of sturdy opposi tion and the .Westerners could bo given a run for their money. We have been trying to get a line on the South Atlantic A. A.. title winners, but to no 'avail. Those in charge of the records say they have sent them away to be compiled. Those who are reported to have received the records say they have not been sent. There seems to bo a general Idea that Georgetown won the title. Just where the records are to be found is a mystery. For the past two weeks we have phoned, written, and SCH001S TO HAVE DUAL TRACK MEET Western and Business Hook Up March 23 in Varied Program.

Is there no official scorer for the South Atlantic colleges T la the general business run In such a manner? No wonder .here are oro- I tests and arguments. In looking over the high school baseball situation it would appear that Central has the edge on. the others. Gould Menefee left a num ber.of first class players last spring. All of the others have been harder hit than usual by graduations. Even though Business and Western have no track athletes of.c'ass they are starting qut right In engaging In a dual meet. The best possible means of developing athletes Is to s;lve them competition. Let the other schools fall In line.

Some days ago we uppea on m -oca-clubs as to the advantages to Jm de rived from helping the kids. Foster Sanford. although considered one of the football radicals, has contrib uted real constructive '-work for the game. His latest suggestions are sure to arouse a storm of protest, but San ford defends his proposed changes with considerable force.. We. are heartily in sympathy with the proposal to legislate "cutting down from behind" out of the game. Too many high class players have been crippled up for no reason whatever and simply because they were careless enough to watch the play in stead of taking into account some man sent out for the purpose ot dumping them.
