WEATHER COLD; GAME CALLED OFF Thermometer at 30 Makes Baseball in South An Impossibility LINE l)P AGAINST NORFOLK Staff Correspondent Evening Journal. PORTSMOUTH. April 3,—With the thermometer hovering aibout tho thirty mark, skims of ice In the suiters and uopn sidewalks and a brisk north wind Wowing, ibaseball Is an Impossibility here today. Yesterday was the scheduled time for the initial game with the Ports mouth tram, but stormy and cold weather precluded any chance of even practice and Manager Charlie Moss of the Portsmouth team called the game off, trusting that today would permit the opening of the aeries. This morn ing <1 inwned cloudy but by 9 o'clock the sun shown through the clouds Its ad Ivent being preceded hy a few fttful flakes of snow. The wind held stead ily. however, and although the mer cury rose some fifteen degrees. It Is far from n fit day to play ball. Captain Cassidy at noon called up Manager Moss of the Portsmouth team at his headquarters at the Lafayette Hotel, and after a short conversation Moss called off today's game. If weather conditions are favorable a game will be ployed tomorrow. Thursday. Frldnv and Saturday are scheduled with the Norfolk team In Norfolk, but much de pends upon the weather, which at this season of the year seems to be an un certain proposition. In the moan lime the boys, though somewhat put out at being unable to "get In the game" are doing all that Is possible to get In trim for the open ing of the season and are daily taking long walks, visiting the skating rink and going through gymnastic exercises as best they can. It was thought that the team would be at least permitted to go upon the diamond at the athletic grounds this afternoon for practice, out Manager Moss declared that It was too soft and tho work was confined to pitching, bat ting out and limbering up by running about the field. The local fans are anxiously await ing a game between the visitors ami the Portsmouth team as the weather has not dampened the base ball ardor one whit. Tho strength of Wilmington's team is causing much favorab comment among even strongest rooiers of the local team, many of 'whom express the wish that the Tri-Staters represented Portsmouth In the Virginia State League, the men are strong at the bat cannot toe question, as the game on Saturday settled that beyond the shadow of a doubt. The infield too is a hard propo sition to overcome, as with Cassidy at first. Griffin at second, McCarty at third, and Beitler at short, there should be few that get beyond the diamond ClancY is the giant of the Wilmington pitching staff and stands over »lx foot.^ Ho has a good eye and a wise head and'^di win keep the best of them guessing before the season Is over.

RACE MEET ON MAY II Beautiful. Indeed, appears Hie track and grounds of the Wawasct Driving Association at the present time, when nature la robing the ground In emerald hues, against which the yellow of tho track and the avhlten.es of Iho •buildings and femes stands out In charming contrast.

Henry Dutton has also live prom ising colts stabled there, and dally they are being put through a course of track stunts which will no doubt bring out many surprises for the lovers of the kingly sport when the season opens. As yet none but the horses quartered there have been exercised on the track, •but It Is expected that ere many days have gone by many of the best animals In this section will be In training, as practically all those who made records for themselves the past season w4H again be seen dashing around the course. Such horses as are now being worked on the track are only being "jogged out" with no attempt being made at •vbrtsklng up" but within the next few days tries will be made at the quarter and half mile distances. Lovers of horseflesh and racing are looking forward to an unusually in teresting season, and predict many surprises for those who usually attend the meetings, as the supply of fast jVnmgsters is beyond that of former years.
