COLUMBUS TO PLAY B.A.C. QUINTET TONIGHT]
. YALE SLOAN TO HIT FOR BARONS IN 1915 Molesworth Announces Acquisition of Fence-Breaking Out fielder—Expected to Join Training Camp in Few Days—Outfield Looms Up Strong orlando. Fla.. February 26.—(Special.) Yale Sloan, the fence-breaking out fielder of the St. Louis Browns, has been added to the Baron outfield, ac cording to a statement given out by Manager Molcsworth today. Sloan is expected to join the Baron training camp here in a few days. The acquisition of Sloan, according to Molcsworth, was completed to all practical purposes several weeks ago, but owing to trouble in getting the slugger out of the major leagues, the Birmingham management thought it best to keep negotiations quiet until Sloan had been signed. The ex-big leaguer is expected to add material strength to the Baron out field. McBride seems a certainty in the sunfield. Thi^ leaves McGee, Stewart and a goodly assortment of rookies to MUHHmiMMOMtHMHMMlHtllllHMMUtMtl battle for the remaining garden posi tion. Molesworth is looking for a bat ting mate for the McBride-Sloan pair, and it is expected that the candidate who shows the greatest aptitude with the willow will land the remaining permanent berth. In Sloan, Manager Molesworth un doubtedly lias secured one of the best all-round outfielders in the Southern league. In addition to being a wonder ful performer with the stick, the Geor gia boy is a fast and clean fielder and a deer on the bases. Sloan first broke into professional company with the Mor ristown club in the Appalachian league. The next season saw him with Mont gomery. where his hard hitting won him a trial in the majors. Last season found him with the Nashvilte club, but an untimely sickness seriously handi capped his work. At the end of the season Sloan was drafted by the St. Louis Browns, from whom Molesworth \ secured him MUMMItHMIttMHtMUtMlMMlUHHIIMMNU' Grist of the Winter League MR. BAUGH. Next Thursday the directors of the .Southern league will elect a suc cessor to the late Judge W. M. Kav anaugh. Observers of the affairs of the association have only one guess as to the choice of the various magnates around the Southern circuit. That choice Is Robert H. Baugh, president of the Birmingham Baseball associa tion. • • • Mi. Baugh will be tendered the pres idency of the Southern league be cause he has made a success as the executive of the largest and most profitable baseball club in the associa tion. The magnates of the other Southern cities, have known of Mr. Baugh for years, and every annual meeting has strengthened their respect for the sage and business-like advice of the executive from Birmingham. \ Therefore, it occasions little surprise among persons well Informed in base ball affairs that when the grim reaper removed Judge Kavanaugh the name of Robert H. Baugh should be im mediately mentioned as the successor to the dead and lamated leader. No opposition looms ahead lor Mr. Baugh. The only question Is his acceptance of the responsibilities of the position. • • • Mr. Baugh is a busy man. He has many large business interests others than being the executive of the Bir mingham club. It is these diversified affairs that Mr. Baugh avers pre cludes his acceptance of the presi dency of the league. However, Mr. Baugh will accept if the welfare of the association depends upon it. Mr. Baugh has never failed to come to the aid of the league; he will not fail in this crisis to answer the call his brother magnates will make upon him. It will take an able and wise coun- I cilor, a pacificator and a strong lead er to fill the place left vacant by the sudden death of Judge Kavanaugh. These .requisites the leaders of the Southern league recognize are vested in the genial personality of Robert H. Baugh of Birmingham, their choice for president of the association. * • • BASKETBALL. Cplumbus, the champion of cham pions, comes to town this morning, and tonight will battle with the re juvenated B. A. C.’s in the gymnasium of the Athletic club. It is quite true that Columbus usually wins with ease over the locals, but tonight a different tale will be told. The tip has gone fort’1 from Doc Crow, the physical di rector that Ills team will wallop the Columbus aggregation with the facile, deftness with which defeat was ad ministered to the redoubtable Univer sity of Alabama quintet. We have faith in the tips of Doc Crow for it cannot be denied that the B. A.

(Bodaciously stolen—censor.) FEDERAL LEAGUE OPENS APRIL 10 Buffalo. February 26.—Selection of April 10 as the opening date for the Federal league's playing season, two days in advance of the first games in the organized major baseball leagues, and recommendation by the umpires of minor changes in playing rules, marked the opening session or the league’s an nual schedule meeting here today. Although injunction proceedings in stituted at Chicago to prevent the transfer of the Kansas City franchise to Newark prevented formal adoption of a schedule, the magnates went ahead with their work on tlie basL that Newark would be the eighth team in this year’s line-up. Representatives of the Kansas City owners registered at the hotel where the league meetings were held but did not seek recognition. “It looks like a pretty favorable sign,’’ said President James A. Gilmore, “when Federal clubs begin fighting for franchises. In fact, federal affairs all around look mighty good to me for 11H5.” New' rules recommended by the um pires provide for a fine of $206 and 30 days’ suspension for pitchers using the “emery ball” and w'ould rule out of play a ball batted foul that strikes any part of the grandstand or passes Into foul territory beyond first or third bases, the latter rule being designed to prevent delay. WHITE AND ATWELL BATTLE TO DRAW Chattanooga, February 26.—(Special.) Jack White of Chicago and Cleve Atwell of Brooklyn fought' eight terrific rounds to a draw here tonight. Tho lads tore in at each other in the opening round and maintained a furious pace. White relied chiefly upon a left hook and landed re peatedly. Atwell showed great recuper ative powers, however, and finished strong and aggressive. His blows seemed to lack steam. The decision was popular with the crowd. In the semi-windup, Kid Doiron, the New Orleans bantam, knocked out Fighting Kennedy of New York in the second round. georgITdayis MAKES NEW RECORD Cambridge, Mass., February 2G.—George A. Davis, Harvard law school student and pitcher for the Boston Nationals, who set a new strength record at Har vard recently, bettered his mark today with 1593.8 points In a general test.

COLUMBUS TONIGHT Local Athletes Expect to Turn Tables On Georgia Stars in Final Bout of Season, and Great Battle is Expected—Usual Dance Will Follow the Game IIy RICHARD F. UJ8IUEII With tour consecutive victories to their credit the Birmingham Athletic club bas ketball quintet will clush with the cham pionship Columbus team tonight in the last game of the season at the Ath letic *011111. The usual dance will follow the game. To the basketball fans of Birmingham the Columbus aggregation need no intro duction. For the past five years the Co lumbus team lias been the class of the southern amateur basketball world and the team that will meet tlie B. A. C. tonight is of the same championship cali bre of previous seasons. Columbus and Atlanta were the only two teams to de feat the B. A. C. this season. As for the amateur basketball chain-1 plonship of the south several teams have excellent claims. Including the B. A. C. team, if Columbus is defeated tonight. According to Physical Director Clow of the Athletic club Columbus is due for an awrm trouncing tonight ami the local fans ate pulling for a victory. This season the B. A. C. has played a short schedule owing to the fact that! the public preferred buying things to eat to attending basketball games. The record of the team is live victories to three defeats. A defeat tonight will still leave the B. A. C. with a record of more1 victories than losses, which is considered excellent locally as Doc Clow had some very mediocre material to build a team with. However, the V, A. (Vs will win tonight if they play tlie* class of bas ketball displayed against the T’ntversity of Alabama last Monday night. In addition to being contenders for the southern championship the B. A. C. cleaned up on the -city championship se ries with ease by trimming the proteges of Z. Nespor of the playgrounds and scaring the girlish young gentleman who composed the “senior" team of the Young Men's Christian association into refusing to play. In order to avoid meeting the B. A. C.’s it is understood the “seniors'* have disbanded. OMAR HARDGROVE HERE; HEMMINGWAY ON WAY TO JOIN MATES AT ORLANDO H.v RICHARD F. M SSIF.R Omar—not the renowned Tentmaker, or the fat Turk in those interesting cigar ette advertisements, but the old fox— Omar Hardgrove—the only hurler in the Southern league who pitches with his noddle—arrived in the city yesterday aft ernoon. Old Hardy was just as genlul as ever and after paying his respects at the Birmingham Arms, the headquarters of the Birmingham Baseball association, the veteran hurler went calling on all his friends—and that means the population of Greater Birmingham. According to Hardgrove. he came in from Kansas City, and lias a through ticket for Orlando, Fla. Hardy stopped over for a day and will leave this after noon on the .Seminole Limited for Jack sonville. He reports at the Orlando train ing camp on Sunday. Hardgrove is slightly overweight, but confidently predicts that a week in the balmy clime of Florida will remove all the superfluous flesh and he will be zip ping them over to the recruit catchers in a manner that Will shame even Dick .••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••a.. Robertson, the speed artist of the Bar ons. Hardgrove stated that ho was glad to play with the Barons again this sea son and made a casual reference to his flirtation with the Federal*. “The Federal made me an offer." said the Old Fox, “but the figures were not sufficient to make me desert the Bir mingham team. I have always been well treated in this city ami T like it, which explains why I am still here. I reckon I know a good town wrhen I see one. “I .lust came from Kansas City, tvhere I've been hunting all winter. The sport was line and 1 am very much improved in health, although a trifle overweight. However, a week in the training camp will 7.x me and the youngsters will have to travel to follow me this season. The old ‘soup bone* is still tnere.” Another player that passed through Bir mingham last night but dhl not stop was Hemingway, the new’ third baseman. Hemingway was with Nashville last season and was drafted to the St. Louis Browns, and in a midwinter deal with the shrewd Moleawortb was brought into tlie Baronial camp. Hemingway will replace Eddie McDonald at the offside corner. ASKS $5000 FOR RUNNINGfOAUTO Saddler Alleges No Lights Were Placed on Machine. Unusual Suit v Numberless suits are filed ill the sev eral county courts in which damages are claimed for alleged personal injuries said to have been received by being knocked down and run over by automobiles, yet yesterday in the Circuit court suit was filed In which damages were claimed for alleged personal injuries received by rea sons of an automobile standing still and the plaintiff running into It.

LUSSIER At 2 o’clock this afternpon Director Z. Nsapor of the Civic Recreation depart ment will line up the two champion soc cer teams of the playground league for the crucial contest of the season, which will decide definitely the championship of the playgrounds of Greater Birming ham. The contenders are the East Bir mingham team and the North Birming ham team. Each aggregation lias its adherents and it is very difficult to pick a winner even Director Nespor refraining from making any statements regarding the probable victor, so it is taken for grant ed that t lie teams are very evenly matched. Regarding the game this after noon the following “dope” was sent to The Age-Herald sporting desk yesterday by the press representatives of the East Birmingham team: The soccer football boys who reside in East Birmingham though crippled by the loss of two players will present a for midable line-up Saturday afternoon at Rickwood Field, and intend to make a strong bid for victory. The boys do not claim to be “sharks ' at the game, but | insist that they possess the ability to' trounce the alleged team that represents North Birmingham. The East Blrmlng hammers are light, fast and scrappy and! have kicked four goals to every one, scored by their opponents this season. Great credit is due the boys for their showing this season owing to the fact that not a member of the team had ever played soccer football before. As for the North Birmingham team the major ity of the players are veterans in the Alabama Association Football league. Glass, goal keeper for East Birming ham, is not to be run over by the vet erans of North Birmingham, for lie lias the knack of putting the ball down the field in a hurry. Walker and Victor Schmutz, the East Birmingham fullbacks, play excellently and Graves, Campbell, the halfbacks, are expert in “feeding" | the ball to the forwards. W. Loveless will play center and though lie is the smallest man on tin* team he has kicked more goals than all his team mates. Nel son. the “Terrible Swede,” and E. Love less, the outside wings, are speedy and have never missed a goal. Bagley and ITanes. the inside wings, are noted for theU “shoulder” work and usually make arrangements to spill opponents on all possible occasions. In fact, looking at the East Birmingham team as a whole, it is very clear to see that it is a win ner and the fans may expect a walkover against the arrogant aggregation of North Birmingham. After reading the “riot act" above the North Birmingham team will undoubtedly be enthused to enter the game with zest and anything else that they are able to get by the referee. What dy'mean, play ground soccer football?
