As soon as Milan showed up he
asked McGrew what his troubles
were. Lob immediately told the
Texan to pitch his own way. From
that day on the bean pole began
developing terrific speed and his
curve ball began to make a timid
appearance. McGrew is extremely
green, though. when it comes to
fielding his position. And even if
he makes a good showing against
the Braves he seems fated to go
back to the minors for more sea

company, but not this year.

BALTIMORE. March 23.-Much
interest is being centered en the
second meeting of George (K. 0.)
Chaney and Shamus O'Brien, which
will take place at the Playhouse on,
April 3.
That O'Brien must be a battler of
considerable merit is evident from
the difficulty that Matchmaker
Dewey had in inducing Chaney to
meet the Yonkers lad again. Only
after a great deal of arguing, which
ended finally in - an unusual guar
antee for the K. O. king. did George
finally agree to go on with the
match. A

"It may be true that O'Brien does
not always put up a good fight, but
when he does not it is usually his
opponent's fault."
The popularity of these two
fighters is not confined to Baltimore
and Yonkers, however. Washing

Chaney almost their own property.
He is a veritable idol in the Capital

for tickets to their comning meeting
that a special section of seats has
been put on eale at Miller's Barber
