kept MeCrcdie scared until the sixth, when

Attention You Baseball Fans!
What's the Matter>with Vernon and the Angels?
There's an old saying to .tho effect that two heads are better than one, If one of
the two IS a cabbage head. Jfow, aU you fans who think yon know how the chances
of tho Hoganltea and the DlUonltes can bo Improved, sprak up. Write your sugges
tion* to the baseball editor of The Herald and tell him Just what the teams need; how
they can be strengthened; whether the batting order «hould be rliantrfHl; whether the
fielders should be moved to other stations; whether some of the utility men should
displays the regular*, etc., etc Keep your mfgestlon* within a hundred words, If
possible, and send them In.
Replying to your request for all fans
to state their views regarding "What's
the matter with the Angels and Ver
non?" will say that In my opinion
Vernon needs another catcher, espe
cially ono who can bat once in a while.
Hogan is all right as captain and man
ager and we all give him proper credit
for developing the 1909 cellar cham
pions into (Mintenders for the 1910 flag,
but he is doing too much catching and
being a weak batter is hindering the
team's progress in that degree.. Brown
is a n"-"l catcher, but has been in
jured to much thai he has been out of
the game a great deal this season.
Hogan's throwing eye is bad, woefully
so, and while lie has the noodle he has
not the catching ability to stick be
hind the li;i'. Why not give "Shoes"
Pflrrman a chance? Pfirrman is as
i- as any in the league,
an accurate thrower to the bases, lias
:i o I noodle and is a better batter
than Brown. He is a local boy and has
not had ;■ chance to make good in a
position where ho excels, if Happy
wants to win the flag this season lie
must forego his desire to play behind
the bat am! put nn alert alternate in
his plaon tx> hi'lp out Brown. Pflrrman
is- tl, boy, and his numerous friends
in Los Angeles want to see him given
a fair chance. Cap Dillon, who needs
a k"'»! catcher now more than any-
Ililiij.' else, would not give Pflrrman a
chance, although holding him on the
team until after the season started.
Pflrrman will make good if given a
fair trial, , i rnon seems to have
ji good it thi rag there is no
raliil excuse for turning him down.

In answer to the question "What's
the matter -with Vernon and the An
gels?" will say that they need a little
more ginger In their playing, and in
order to accomplish this the managers
must look for younger players. Re
garding young playerß, I have one to
suggest that I think will make good.
There is a youngster Of the name of
Ben Romero, who is at the Preston
school in Waterman, Cal., who is one
of the most promising all-round ball
players I have sen in a long time. In
my opinion he has Daley, Ross, Smith
or Martlnke skinned to a frazzle in
their respective positions, and as he is
an excellent catcher—and the Angels
surely need one—he would lit in that
position to aT. He lacks nothing but
experience, and a little "f that will be
enough. He is speedy, a heavy hitter
and a brainy player. In addition to b (
ing a splendid fielder and improving
with every game, lie is only is years
old; about 5 feet 6 Inches tall, and
weighs about 150 pounds. 11' can i>lay
any position on the team, and play it
will. Now thßt tip- Angels are in bad
need of a catcher, they ought to grab
a live one like this youngster and give
him a trial, and he surely \wll make
KO od I am nol doing this to boost the
boy of course, but want to s<-. P the
Angels strengthened in their weakest
spot. SI.MX.

the north yesterday to the effect that Fran

I :or and expected it. Hosp was released

waa turned loose because of stomach trou
bles that so weakened him that ho could not
stand the strain of a full game. Right on
top of tlio announcement that these twlrlcrs
had been released came one from Hogan that
he wouM give Hosp a chance with the \ il
lagers this week If confirmation of the re
lease could be had In time. Humors have
floating around for a lon* time to the
effect that Hosp was playing for his release
from the Ansel band because of difference*
with Urn Berry, dating from last year, aris
ing out of the Pale of Hosp to Cincinnati.
it It -aid that Hosp did not want to rejoin
the Angels on his return from the east, but
had to do it under the rules. He iias hnd
no interest In his work since, because, of the
trouble with Berry and his dissatisfaction with
his berth. Briswalter says that Hosp has all
hia old-time speed and control, and that his
arm has ■ as* ■: to trouble him. In that sv< nl
Hosp will ho a Kreat strength to the twirling
staff of the Villagers, as he outclasses nil
other Coaal league pitchers when In form.
It is possible that he will be worked Friday
or Saturday, as Hogan has asked him to work
with the tfim until official confirmation of
the release is had, when he will be signed up.
Briswalter probably will go back to the seml
pro leagues In this section of the state until
his health Improves and he regains his pitch-
Ing form nnd stamina.

punch that each has that they are going
through tho hardest season of training they,

almost amounts to a fight of elimination, as
Bandy Is trying the second time, to make good

whip him or bo the loser of • considerable
portion of Mi prestige.
Each ha» progressed so nicely during th«
training period that he Is talking of a knock
out victory, and In th« enthusiasm that goes
with this confidence they are miiullng their
spurring partners a bit more fiercely than the
occasion really demands. Each did a hi»
day's work yesterday In training quarters,
following long runs on the road, and at the
wlndup of the day both appeared to be ready
to step into the ring.
Ferguson did eight miles on Hie road at a
fast rate and pulled up In much better shape

a pace that would win many a light for him.
Sandy will be In fine trim tomorrow night, and
if he does not show Improved form as com
pared with his battle with Jack Burns, those
who have been keeping tab on him will be
very much surprised.
Barry also did eight miles of road work, nnd
after a long session In the gymnasium went
four round* with Mexican Charlla, both en
gaging in real slugging of the kind that de
light* the training camp follower. Jim cannot
make a reasonable excuse on the score of.

Claim He Was Seen Day Wife's
Body Was Found in
the Lake
[Associated Fre«sl
COMO, Italy, June 15.—The authori
ties believe that Porter Charlton is
alive. They claim to have cvlilonce
that lip was seen on the evening of the
day that the body of Mrs. Mary Scott
Charlton was found in Lake Como.
That would eliminate the theory of a
double murder, and the police do not
believe Charlton committed suicide.
Mr. Leishman, the American ambas
sador, however, is determined to give
the missing man the benefit of the
doubt, and has arranged with the
Italian authorities to have the bottom
of the lake thoroughly explored.
Count Quiglia, the crown prosecutor,
has taken upon himself the whole In
vestigation of the case, which is now
before an examining magistrate, Judge
Fracassi. The examination is belnß
held in strict secrecy, the judpre and
prosecutor themselves directing the in
terrogations so that the minims of the
proceedings might not be made public.
Constantine Ispolatoff. the Russian
suspect, who is now under arrest, has
borne himself with considerable brav
ado in the face of the severe rx.im
ination, and his answers to various
questions have either been in the form
of a denial or an evasive explanation.
nOe of the lines of inquiry today led
to the question of the disappearance of
a set of brass knuckles known to bo
the property of the Russian. He could
not account for the disappearance of
the weapon, but It was developed that
Mrs Charlton had once asked him for
the knuckles, which he refused to give
her. The police believe this weapon
played a part In the murder.
Nor has ispolatoff been able to ex
plain successfully how or where ho
passed June 4, E and 6. Hlh examina
tion is not completed, as the author
ities are certain he has not yet told
all he knows about the domestic lifo
ol the Charltons and the murder.
