Basketball Season?Practicing
for Baseball.
[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Wake Forest, N. C. February 2$.?
With tho game with the University ot
Virginia on Wednesday night the
basketball season came to a close. Tito
tienson has been noted not so much
for Its brilliant record in number ot
frames won. hut for its wonderful rec?
ord when it is considered what mate?
rial there was the first of the season.
.With not ia member of last year's team
present, Coach Cfozler, by excellent
coaching, developed a quint of which
the college may wi ll r eel proud. Under
the new eligibility rules, the require?
ments for wearing the "W." only live
men have that much-coveted honor.
Not a single substitute has the privi?
lege; Heretofore there have been about
nine men "who won the letter for bus-,
Jrcetball service. The new requirements
tire that a. man must play in half the
p.imes scheduled before he -will be i
planted the privilege W. C. Dowd.
.Sr.. of Charlotte, made a regular place
on the team, being the first freshjnan
in tho history of the college to have
that honor. Others have been substi?
tutes, but did not make a regular
berth. Phil Utley. of Fabduh. who Is
captain of both the football and bas?
ketball teams of this year, made; the
team, und Is thereby tho only student
in college) who has ihadc three ath?
letic teams. In I he last four years
there has been but one other student
to accomplish that fciit. Every man
on the team with the exception of Cap?
tain Holding, has made another team

More than forty m<m are practicing
for the baseball team- It is impos
f-JMe at this early da;? to get a line
on the different plax-ers. The candi?
date's for pitcher and '-atelier have
*M>rn working for some time, and the
prospects on that line are pood. Utley,
Pointer, Underwood, Smith and Par?
ser and two left-handers, McClendon
and Hood, are the candidates for
pitchers. Watkins and Riddick, of last
year's team, and Beasely, a freshman,

Heady for Spring Prnetlre. . . |
Alexandria, ha., February 27.?The!
tirst squad of tlie Cleveland American j
Ln:4g\ie baseball team arrived here to-?
day for spring practice.
By GUS MALBERT.
It sure docs take .some people art j
awfully long time to be convinced of
tlie obvlouw.
Now there's that little matter of the
Tidewater League. When the idea was
first fathered in the enthusiastic brain
of our mutual friend. Billy Hannah,
every single soul who was even the j
tiniest bit acquainted with the laws:
which govern the National Association !
of Professional Baseball Leagues knew!
that the organization would be outlaw'
the moment It put a team in Norfolk !
or Portsmouth.
Not so some of the more earnest
brethren; They spouted and runted,
and fussed and fiddled; quoting this
man and that man to show that the
organization would be. perfectly legal
and legitimate.
It do bent all how some folks will
parade their ignorance so brazenly.
But. in the words of that eminent
philosopher. Colonel Bill Skllllt: "There
ain't going to be no Tidewater League,
nohow."
The usual gathering was present
yesterday at the park, but tools bein?
absent, nothing was done but enjoy
the fresh air.
Some one did manage to get hold of
a hall which had seen better days
many, many years ago. and a few
were batted skyward so that S.*ra
cino and Whitllne could dri a little
chasing.
Bats and balls will be on hand to?
day.
Sullivan spent Sunday walking to
'Seven Pines and buck, which Is some
walk.
He was bach nl the park early yes?
terday, though, and doing a Marathon
around the diamond.
Baker and Pearce are expected in
to-morrow. The dub house has been
put hi shape for them. Hot water and
everything else will he ready.
And Sullivan Is clad. Yesterday lie
expected Walker and rtovetlo out at i
the park. Neither showed \tp. With
the coming of Baker and Pearce he
will have somebody to work out with
every day.
Remember that lo-morroiy will be
March 1, after which date all players
without contracts will be free agents.
Then watch for sonic things to happen.
TDuck Hooker has no contract from
Danville yet. and. confidentially, he Is
not anxious to gel one.
Frank Bigbio has a Raleigh contract. |
which lies him to that (dub, but he 1
remarked that he would not work'
there this season.
Stanley Bigbie allowed thai he
thought he would retire, as he hnd
inside enough money out of baseball.
That';: what a boy who behaves bim?
se'.-f usually can say.

PURELY VEGETABLE
THE OME SAFE BLOOD. REMEDY
It is a generally recognized fact
.hat medicines taken from the botan
cal kingdom are better adapted tc
.he delicate hitman system, and safet
in every way than those composed ol
?itroug mineral mixtures. Among
:he very best and safest of vegetable
preparations is S.S.S., a blood med
:iue made entirely of roots, herbs and
Darks, in such combination as to
:nake it the greatest of all blood puri
'iers and the finest of all tonics.
3. S. S. does not contain the least
particle of mineral in any form, and
\s an absolutely safe medicine for any
:me to use. While purifying the
olood, this great vegetable remedy
guilds up every portion of the system,
is. ?S. S. eures Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Sores aud Ulcers, Skin Diseases,
Scrofula, Constitutional Blood Dis?
eases, and all impurities and morbid
conditions of the circulation. It is
perfectly reliable and safe for children; I
and little ones who have been weak-!
tried with scrofulous affections or1
jther inherited blood troubles, can
Luke this niild vegetable remedy with;
good results aud without the slightest
danger. S. S. S. is unequalled as a
tonic; it invigorates every portion of
the system, and the healthy blood it I
creates largely assists in overcoming I
any derangement of the stomach j
and digestive system. If you need a;
blood medicine you could do no better!
than to take S. S. S. It has been in
use for more than forty years and is
still recognized as the best. Book oil
the blood free to all who write.

SULLIVAN PREDICTS
RICHMOND A WINNER
Working Hard Himself and Will Make Men
Work Hard?Anxiously Awaiting Time
When Players Report for Practice and
Weeding Out Process.
BY <;U5 MAL?EUT.
Talking over the local baseball situa?
tion with Jimmic Sullivan is like tak?
ing a trip on tho loop the loop; start
wherever you want aud travel along
what paths you will, it's a cinch bet
that you are going to get back to
tho fact that Richmond will have a j
winner. That downtown-eignr-store
soda-water-fountain tinselled vaporing
would dissipate in about thirteen sec?
onds under the businesslike talk of
J nines \Y. Sullivan, Escp
It is not my Intention to pen a
panegyric upon the many good finali?
ties of Sullivan. Tie is a great big.
husky sort of a fellow, and Is able, to
take, care of himself. "I am in Rich?
mond because I liked the terms Owner
Bradley agreed to, and now that I
have accepted those terms 1 am going
to give Richmond a winner, if T can."
That's tho way he talks, and he looks
like he means it.
Sullivan a Hard Worker.
Some of you fellows who wrote the
game, and who can tell a baseball j
player as far as you can see with a j
telescope, just take a few minutes off.
go out to the ball park, and watch a
real man work. You know it's a mighty
good sign when you see a man doing
.Hist as much as he asks the men under
him to do. Sullivan not. only does as
much as any of the youngsters on the
lot, but he does more
lake every man who ever made his
living playing baseball, and made a
success of tho business. Sullivan is
taking no chances this early In the
season. He might'get on the diamond,
throw his arm off and make a few
sensational stops for the delectation of
the few knockers who are on hand,
not to find out how good a man is, but
to take advantage of everything ho
doesn't do. But Sullivan Is not running
a circus; he is at the business end of
a base-hall team which Is out for a
pennant;
Believe* lie linn n Winner.
Since the first day hp scratched his j
name to a contract ho has been work- i
ing to get together a fast lot of
youngster.? who would lit in the much
smaller money bag which is being fur?
nished thois season. lie has scoured
the country. The recruits are coming
from every section, because Sullivan
lent his ear to every one who could
suggest the name of a ball playor. I
I Pretty nearly everybody in Richmond
knows almost by heart the names of
I the men who will report.
Cowan and Dobsoh and Verbout afid
Baker are known quantities. They have
been tried and they have made good; \
made good not only as ball players,
but as Individuals with the. fans. The I
other names on the list simply rep
resent names. Indeed, that is about all
they represent, to the manager of tho I
team. lie has their records, or as
much of tho records as could be ob?
tained, but most of the youngsters have
been playing ball such a short while
that there was little to glean.
Take Majcey and l.,od>so ami Dawson,
tho three boys who will be tried be?
hind the bat. While each of these boys
has a great reputation, with the pos?
sible exception of Lodge, who at one
time played on Richmond College, u<>
actual information is at hand. The
same holds true with the pitchers. Tho
result is that until the boys arrive and
t lie actual work of wooding them out
begins, any prediction is simply guess?
work, nnd any prejudgment an unfair
treatment of a lot of youngsters, who
may have tho potential abilities of a
'J*y Gobb or an ISddte Collins.
Leniency Should Me ISxtciided.
Don't laugh at such a sAntemcnt.
Every one of the big fellows who get
their names in the papers every day.
and who are mentioned over the foot?
lights by the big comedian, strayed
around the back lots and in the hushes
for a long time before they got to the
point where they drew salaries Instead
of mere, wages
So he lenient. Have confidence in
Sullivan. Don't knock at any stage of
tile game, but surely, if yon must
knock?and it's a habit with a lot of j
people I know?give every single soul |
a show before you begin wielding the. I
ldg stick. Richmond and good baseball
is the cry. Be just as good sports as
Hie fellows in the little towns. Forget
that there is such a thing an a salary
limit. Too much lias already been said
about a matter which is more or less
the private concern of the league,
.lodge the article of hall you receive
as an article of ball, and then make
just criticisms, always remembering
that Owner Bradley wants a winning
team just as badly as you do, and that i
ho has considerably more at stake.
Executive Committee Decides to
Jo.in Blues in Both Indoor
and Outdoor Events.
At a meeting of the executive com?
mittee of the Athletic Association of
Richmond College hehl Inst night It
was decided to join hands with the
Richmond Light Infantry Blues in the
dual indoor track meet to he held in
the Bines' Armory .March. 21. and also
in the big open air meet to he* held
at the hall park April 12.
Final arrangements will be made at
a joint mooting between the athletic
committee of the Blues a ltd a com?
mittee from the college to be held
to-night. No hitch in any of the ar?
rangements is expected, as both the
college, and the military organization
are heartily in favor of the move.
The indoor meet will doubtless prove
a great success, as practically all of
the local athletic organizations, the
grammar schools and the prep, schools
have signified their intention of taking
part in the many events and in the
relay races. An ofllelnl list of the
events will be published as soon as
they are arranged.

But Owner Bradley Declares Star
First Sacker Will Return to
Richmond.
[.Special to The Timcs-vbispatch;]
Winston-Salem, X. C, February 27.?
The local association has made a deal
whereby five players of the Fayette
ville pennant-winning' team in the
Kastein Carolina League will be trans?
ferred to the Wlnst?n-Salem team for
coming season. These are Dobson,
first baseman; Calvin, catcher; O'lfalo
ran, second baseman; Mulllns, centre
fielder; Sbumaker, left beider. Con
Iracts have been forwarded to all mem?
bers of last year's local team, but it
is known that only a few will be. asked
to return.
Owner Bradley, when shown the
above, made the following statement:
"So far as I know, neither Fayette
ville nor Winston-Salem nor any one
else, except the Richmond Club, has
a particle of claim on the services of
Dobson. Ho was bought outright last
year from Fayottevillc by Richmond,
an.) belongs to us unreservedly. We
hnvo sent him his contract and know
that lie has rccolved It because we
hnvo been so .advised by the National
Commission,. I don't think that thoro
is any cause for alarm bocatiso of tbo
report, and I dm positive that Dobson
will bo back with Richmond this sea?
son." Owner Bradley Is usually pretty
well Informed as to his claims on a
player, and his statement will there?
fore bo assuring to a largo number
of fans who regard Dobson very
highly. >
