COLTS LOSE AGAIN,
BUT PLAY GOOD GAME
Outbat Yankees, but Can't Hit ?t Right Time.
Clauser's Generosity Largely Responsible |
for One-Sided Victory?Fans Have
Chance to See Revelle Work.
Everything went much better ?t
Broad Street Park yesterday after?
noon, even though the locals did lose
to I'arrell's Vannlgans by the scor<
of 10 to 5.
The weather man helped out con>
siderably by furnishing some real
baseball weather for nearly eight
Innings. Then he got peeved, or some
thing else, avo delivered a showei
i a?- Sullivan bad it all framed up
to win. And he would have, too. foi
Dutch Revelle, our very own Dutch,
\v o had been sent to the mound by
tlic Gotham Duke, was able to barely
heave them across with an abortive
underhand jerk, quite as unlike the
smiling one as could be imagined. The
only thing which looked natural was
the smile.
A Good Gnmr.
it was a good game, an enjoyable
tame, and put the fans In a much
b-uter frame of mind tiian that little
affair of last Saturday. Sullivan set
The pace for the youngsters by get?
ting two safe ones in Just that many
times up. In fact, everybody hit well,
proof of which lies in the box score,
which gives Richmond eleven safe
ones to nine for the majors. Johnny
Verbout slammed one right on top the i
turtle in deep centre, scoring Lodge
though Verbout had to die peacefully
a; the third station, when Klemonf?
grounded out from second to first.
Things wero reversed a little, New
York taking the field and the Colts
going after Brockett, who first went
to the centre position. Klements. hit
an easy one to Gardner and was out.
Pakrr went the same road, while Mc
C?be bounded one to first, where
Roach helped Brockett by giving him
an assist.
For New York .Tube hit one to Hall
nnd was out; Litsehl didn't reach first,
and Crce hit a high one to Maltis.
Take Lend Korly.
New York began the scoirr.g In the
second, when a double-sacker by Kauff,
t stolen base, two errors by Clauser
Mid a base on balls netted three runs,
rifchhiond was unable to make the dr?
ill until the third, when hits by Su?
ivah ami Hall, a wild throw and a
sacrifice fly from the bat of Klcmonts
?ielded one lone score.
In the third the Yankees were
icipc'd to a pair of tallies through a
a c on balls, a sacrifice hit, some
norc errors by Clauser and a two
>ase hit. the second of the game, by
Cauff. In the fourth the Yankees
scored again. Walsh hit safe, was
sacrificed to second and scored when
lube retired on a fielder's choice.
Score ISncti Inning.
It was a continuous performance
iftcr that until the eighth. The fifth
uodueed the next straight mark,
loach singled to centre, and scored on
?ardrier's double to the same pla^?e.
Sykes got a lift in the sixth because
Mauser was kind to him. advanced a
base when .lube war- safe on Martin's

I :i the seventh and final round for
the Yankees, Roach hit to left, went

Names Men Who Will Be in
Game Against Augusta Mili?
tary Academy.
[Special to The Times-Dlspatch.l
Lexington. Va., March 27.?Coach
White, of the Virginia Military Insti?
tute baseball team, to-day made known
I for the first time the list of players
I who, as members of the institute's
team, will begin the season Wednes?
day In the game with Augusta Mili?
tary Academy. There probably will
be some changes in the line-up as the
season advances, for In several in?
stances the applicants tor the same
position are so evenly matched that
one can hardly be called better than
the other; but it Is safe to say that the
majority of the men named as mem?
bers of the. first team will till the posi?
tions assigned to them for the rest of
the year.
Immediately after the men had been
assigned to their various positions an
Interesting practice, game was played
between the first and second teams,
In which the former clearly showed
their superiority. Throckmorton,
pitching for the first team, made an
excellent showing ami was well sup?
ported. The batting and base running
of the men deserve special mention.
Captain Owen, who starred at first
base for the institute lust year, batted |
In his usunl form. Diekens, second
baseman, a new man, got three hits
out of four times up, and Reed and
Throckmorton were credited with
home runs.
Besides the all-around practice Inci?
dent to games between the first team
and the scrubs, the new code of bat?
ting signals was practiced. Tho men
showed themselves to be familiar with
these, and the hit-and-run and steal?
ing games were worked almost, with?
out .exception.
The outlook for the future seems
very bright. The coach is enthusias?
tic over the prospects, and believes
thnt with a little more practical work
the team will be In the best of con?
dition for Wednesday's game.
The men who will represent the Vir?
ginia Military Institute against Au?
gusta Military Academy are as fal?
lows: Throckmorton. pitcher; Reed,
catcher; Owen (captain*, first, base,
Diekens, second base; Moore, short?

EXPERT WOMAN CUIST
I AMAZES LARGE CROWD
; Makes Shots on Green Covered Table Which
Bring Applause From Audience?Women
on Hand to Witness Exhibition, Which
Will Be Repeated To-iNight.
Bertha May King last night demon?
strated to an audience composed of
men and women which taxed the ca?
pacity of the Newport parlors that
bhe is entitled to be known as the
champion woman pool player of the
\\ brld.
Time and again the nlucky exponent
of the theory that sex is no bar to
accomplishment; on the green cloth wa>
cheered by the crowd, after the execu?
tion of a difficult shot. She has p
stroke of which any man might be
proud, and she keeps her husband on
the go every minute to hold up his
end of the family.
Pressed in a handsome gown of some
kind of red stuff which no mere man
could describe, but which it is a cinch
every woman there had dissected and
registered in her mind long before
the delicacy of the shots made were
understood, she walked around that
table with the eye of an expert and
picked out combinations of every
known variety, which she made with
a precision which forced a suppressed
. I
exclamation from the mouths of the,
male contingent. j
Both at Hume \\ Itb Cue.
Of course this is not intended as
any reflection on her husband. He is
a great pool player, but men pool
players arc not the most extraordinary
thing In the world. Maybe all of the
experts are not in King's class, but
then there are enough to Keep them
from becoming more than of passing
interest. But a woman pool expert is
something for all of us to marvel at.
And when the woman In the case looks
more like she was ready for a pink
tea, or whatever kind of tea is- given
in the evening, than she does like
playing a hundred-bull game of pool,
the wonderment passes to amazement.
AH of this may sound like extrava?
gant praise, and it is. to any oho who
has not seen Bertha May King play
pool. There were, a number of skeptics
in that crowd, and for being the real
simon-pure article of skeptic you can
stack the Richmond skeptic against the
world.
[Special to The TiineF-Dispatch. 1
Suffolk, Va., March 27.?Members of
the Suffolk Deer Club, composed of
nineteen bankers, professional men
and leading local sportsmen, are agi?
tated over a unique proposition, and I
thus far no solution Is in sight. Thv
club has an excellent bungalow beside
Lake Drummond, in the midst of the
Dismal Swamp. Rules which permit
led the presence of women by day, but
prohibited them at night, have pre?
vailed. Some of the members wanted
a change, because their wives would
not let them stay all night unless they
themselves were present. The femi?
nine issue was put to a vote. Nine
men voted each way. The nineteenth,
a one-time Councilman, who Is unmar?
ried, up to this afternoon had refused
to vote. He declared that the respon?
sibility is too great, and that a deci?
sion must be reached without his aid.
Unless tlie advocates of women gain
one vote they may not sleep In the
bungalow, .and there are no other
sleeping quarters for miles, nothing
but reptile-ridden hogs and beast-in?
fested jungles. There an* threats of
withdrawals (run the club unless the
problem he decided in favor of women.

Ashland, Vs., March 27.?The rain
hold off just long enough this after
noon to allow Coach Warren's Yellow
j .lackots to trim the team from the
Randolph-Macon Academy, at Front
Royal, under Coach Smith, the star
pitcher of the .Jackets last year, by
I the score ot 3 to 2. The gain.- was a
dose one from ftart to finish, but the
, coll Off o secured a lead In the tlrat in?
ning, and played safe from then on,
despite the vigorous efforts of the vis?
itors
Tito sensation of the game was the
desperate rally of the youngster.-; In
the eighth. In that Inning Wills led
off. and was hit. The next man up
walked. Twyman smeared a slzzlcr to
Green, who threw Wills out at third
on a close derision. The next batter
I handed Beville one a little too hot
I for the second baseman, and two runs
romped across the pan. The next
man walked, and, with u man on third
and first, Coach Smith took a bat In
GarretCs place, lie tried the squeeze
play, but missed, and Ran- caught
the runner sliding In. The coach
bunted at another one, and the runner
was again caught at the plate by Rune.
Otherwise the Academy did not come
near scoring throughout the entire
ga mc.
The Yellow Jackets made their tal?
lies in the itrst. Fisher, the second
man up, hit to left. Bann got safe on
an Tr'>r by short, and b-.rih scored on
Captain Bcvillc'a single. Rowe
smashed the first ball thrown hlm tot
a clean two-sackcr, scoring Bevllle.
Coach Warren's n^n showed up in
perfect form so far as their fielding
wan concerned. All are fast, and their
throwing' ability Is remarkable. But
In the, batting line they were rather
lacklrty Warren is working hard
with them, and when the champion?

Yellow Jackets expect to be on the Job.
They have won the past two cups.
