SPEAKER AND CRAWFORD, ON WORLD TOUR,
GET NICE OFFERS FROM THE FEDERALS
Ws Speaker (left and Sam Crawford,
It would seem that Joe Tinker's
many cablegrams to the world-tour
ing Giants and White Sox have not
been without their cffcct. Of all the
globe trotter* perhaps the only two
that interest the Feds arc Tris
Speaker and Sam Crawford. And
these latter have, not been without a
gentle-phrased and enticing wire for
Home few days. A shower of mes
sages descend upon them every time
they turn around. The Feds are
showing great. determination in try
ing to sign them up.
Which state of affairs seems to
have fretted the big league officials.
Recently, for instance, Jimmy Calla
han, White Sox'manager, was com
missioned bv the Boston club to se
cure Tris Speaker's signature. Cal
lahan hits denied this, but none the
less there is Speaker's word that he
will sign no contracts till he is safely
landed in these U. S. and is able to
give the situation. the once over.
"Wait till you-, have seen us," Joe
Tinker has crted -to him, via high
priced cable. "I'We have just about
doubled ball players' salaries." And
Speaker to his .teammates has ob
served "I'll waif till 1 get home aid
give the Fe1s a ehance. I'm sure I'd
be foolish if I didn t.'i'
There are those who suggest
meaningly that This Is merely stalling
for the general effect Just to prpd
his present employers a bit and fatten
his envelope next season.
Most of. the. world-touring players
regard the federal league as a good
sized wheeze and'seem to class It with
the organizatiop /ttyat ..tied to stait
up a season or two, ago under the
direction of a/teeft*lh Mr. -Fletcher,
They have beid

American penny press and perhaps
don't realize their indebtedness to the
new circuit in fattening the salaries
of ball players at large. Which same
the Feds at least have done,
Jimmy Callahan and Jawn Mc
Graw refuse absolutely to take -Che
Federal league.- seriously. '. "Tll^y
haven't shown a very warm affection
for me." say» Cal. "or they would
have tiaken Ping Bodte off 'my
hands.'.' -Says McGraw: "If there's
a player on my team bone-headed
enough to sign with- -the Federal*
should be glad to get rid' of him."
"However, all of the baseball/ vet
erans of the two Yearns, including
both Cal and. Muggsy, agree that thfe
new league will do more good titan
harm by arousing interest and com
petition in our national distraction.
Regarding the possible iMgnlng. of
Speaker by the Fed? there is ano^er
aspect. A number of American
league owners and managers would
be more than thankful should' Stfch
come to pass. Charlie Somers, Cleve
land Nap owner, for One declaree that
he hopes to see Tris join the Feds.
'My pitching staff at pres^nt has a few

points out Somers. "Just supposing
the Feds grab Speaker and a ttw oth

Would I mope and pine? Very little.
