FELL DOWN AT SECOND But Duffy Had Confidence in Youth, and He Has Been Repaid, New York, July 29.?During a re? cent "swing around the circuit" of the American league, many things that were of Interest were noted, but one of the most striking was the way the new recruits of the White Sox looked. It Is amazing how this fellow Duffy picks up top-notch youngsters. Chi? cago is enthused over the newcomers, who have been delivering a high grade of hall that has kept tho team from fighting with the cellar candidates. While much has betn said about the prowess of "Ping" Bodle. the sensa? tional young outfielder from the Pa? cific coast, the praises of Hollle Zeldcr have been left unsung. And. if the performances of one brief week can be counted as any criterion, this youth is destined to M:ome one of the greatest fielding first basemen in the game. Tall and lithe In hulld, he is as wiry as a cat and seems to have the making of a star of the Hal Chase type. He Is put up along the lines of the New Yorker, and has the same nervous, anxious manner of doing things, seeming to want them to hap? pen before they do. In Dnd for Awhile. For weeks Zelder was "In bad" with the fans who made regular journeyt to the gouthslde Park. He was hooted and Jeered until Duffy had to yank him out of the line-up. He was called a bonehead. Ice wagon and numerous other unpleasant epithets thereafter i every time a "bug" espied his eagle like countenance adorning the play? ers' bench. But one day Honorable Hughey saw fit to shove the youngster In at first base. A howl arose, but Duffy "sat tight." and Zelder played the game. Zowle?a hot one came his way, and he turned an Impossible un? assisted play. Bingo?another; then a third. The thing was repeated for four Innings. The next session Zelder turned Inside out to stop a wild throw from one of his teammates across the diamond, and he bent the runner by a slide to first That day Zelder made good. He Is still making good. Result: He Is now cheered lustily by the Windy City fans every time that he steps up to the plate. Poattlon Foreign to Htm. Peculiar. Isn't It. that a man who was touted as a second baseman and shortstop should win his way Into the affection of the fans tvy his play at a position absolutely foreign to him? But that Is what Zelder did, and you can't find a White So-: fan who won't tell you that Zelder has played a re? markable fielding game ever since he was transferred to the first hng. Zelder has pulled some remarkable stuff at tho Initial cushion. He has scooped low throw after low throw, and has saved many an error for the lnflfielders by his clever work. Nor is Zelder weak when It comes to taking balls thrown with the runner coming Into the base. As a fielder on ground ?halls ho Is good and covers a lot of territory In going after fouls. Just another of these strange freaks of the game! Here is a man who failed to make I .(.Continued on JFqurth Pmte.) BOSTON SIGNS MEMPHIS PLAYER Another Jackson for Big League. Bridwell Sends In His Contract. Boston, July 23.?Outfielder Jackson, of the Memphis team of the Southern League, was purchased to-day by the Boston Nationals. Ilo was expected to report at the end of the Southern League season. Rumors that AI Bridwell was un? willing to play longer with the Boa ton club and that he was dissatisfied with the trade that took him from New York, were set at rest to-day, when Bridwell's signed contract was received at the club offices.

GOOBERS DIVIDE L Hillclimbers Retain Second Place by Splitting Double Bill With Visitors. [Special to Tho Times-Dispatch.] Dynchburg, Va., July 29.?Dynchburg retained second place In the raco to? day, when the Shoemakers divided a double bill with Petersburg1. The vis? itors won the first S to 6, and tho locals tho second, 6 to 3. After four chances had been offered to retire the side In the second inning of the initial con? test, Booc hit a homer, which gave Petersburg four runs, a passed ball by Blen and Heating's fumble being re sponsible for all of them and the de? feat. The second game started off like a slugfest. but both pitchers steadied down, and it was a pretty contest till the seventh, when, the locals landed on I'ritehard for three runs.

It was a wonderful finish to the heal tournament Chicago hns had for years, and the large gallery was kept In an uproar throughout the final set. Both teams were within a point of match no less than four times, and had the championship apparently won. only to lose It through ovor-atiNlety to smash the hail. The iinlsh cams when Dean Matliey.

Daniels Should Not Be Able to Take Part in Swedish Games, United States Has Many Other Athletes. Whether or not World's Champiort Charles M. Daniels, of the New York: Athletic Cluh, competes as a member of the American team at the Olympia games next summer at Stockholm. American swimmers, from the form shown In the recent chnmplonshlps o? the National A. A. U.. should win the greatest number of points in the water events, notwithstanding the fact that they will be competing against the stars of the world. America has developed some won? derful swimmers since the London Olympics, and the closest critics of the water game display no anxiety over the outcome of the Swedish games, oven though the sandy-hnlred New! Yorker does not compete. Wo had our eyes opened to the fact that Daniela is no more Invincible as a sprinter la the 100-yard national championship held in New York City, when the champion won the event only by a touch from McGilllvray, the young Chin cagoan, in 50 4-5. Westerner'* Slow Form. Rastern critics still are talking about the wonderful showing of the Westerners, also of the. fact that si* men In the race swam the. too under the minute, a feat never equaled be-' fore In this or any other country. Foreigners were compelled to ac? knowledge the fact that America had, a wonder in Daniels, but would point with pride to the fact that Australia, had three men who could pwlm under the minute. We have advanced considerably slnca last yenr. and wo have six. How manv will we have by next year, when the team Is chosen? At the rate th? youngsters are gaining In speed. It is safe to say that a dozen or more will have to be considered In tho makeup of the American felay.team. In the Olymple team contest each swimmer Is required to swim 300 me? tre i. four men competing on each team. Eliminating Daniels for the mo merTt. we can choose, from the follow, ins men who have shown champion? ship calibre and wonderful speed: Harrv .1 Mehner.
