.Southpaw Who Won 28 Games
Last Season Ready for An
other Season Here.
j Southpaw Tiller (Pug) Caret has ac
cepted terms with the Indians for the
1020 season and his signed contract was
received at'Washington park today. This
tall hurler Is the ace of the Tribe’s pitch
ing staff and with him In the fold Mana
ger Hendricks feels on safe grounds
ICavet is a veteran but he Is a consistent
(winner and all fans will feel elated over
fact that he is not afflicted with the
oldout fever.
> Caret won twenty-eight games for the
last season, a remarkable achteve
iment in Class AA. He participated in
sixty-six games all told, doing relief work
lfi *quently when other Tribe hurlers
•'showed signs of slipping. He lost only
-’fifteen games despite his frequent appear-
Jance oa the mound and in a letter to
pHendricks he stated that he felt just as
strong as -he was last season. All of
which means that Pug ought to be good
|for about twenty-five victories during the
*1920 play.

? American Club Squad
of Baseballers Going
to Beat Spring to It
The knights of swot of the Indianapolis
S American club diamond aggregation will
gaunter forth tomorrow on Irwin flel.l at
! Butler college for their first outdoor
workout of the seasnu, provided the
weather man is friendly. The announce
ment was made today by W illiam E.
Haves, m mager of the baseball team.
He' .-aid that he had signed two more
players for the squad in Fred Barker, a
bgteber, who. when in the navy, was the
star piek from the crews of eight ships,
and Lloyd B. Mogiman. an outfielder of
_no little prominence. Both are members
|f the American club, which is com
posed of executive representatives of
tnanv important Indianapolis Industries.
The club las now eighteen signed play
ers, most of whom are former university
stars, and several more who will be given
tryouts in the course of the spring train
ing- .
Because of the number of former uni
versity men on the Americans, the ath
letic authorities of Butler college have
granted the club permission to use the
gymnasium and Irwin field for their
spring training. It is said that Ihe fhris-
: tfin nine will engage in two skirmish
games with the Americans, probably an
March 27 and April fi. weather permit

The recent battery practice held in the
Butler gym rfishun by the Americans in
dicated that Manager Hayes has some ex
cellent material on his hurling staff. YY.
ft. Pratt, the big right-hander, showed
excellent form, having ,botb speed and
control. Harvey StefTee. signed for the
southpaw end of the slab duty, worked
*tsily with lots of “smoke” and a fast
breaking curve. The outfield, according
to the American club boss, is second to
none of its class and the infield prom
ises some fast performances. The play

Bout With Gibbons
Likely for Wiggins
After Rest Period
Chuck Probably Will Meet St.
Paul Light Heavyweight
in Milwaukee .
Tommy Gibbons, St. Paul light heavy
weight, probably will be the next op
ponent of Chuck Wiggins, local light
heavyweight, who returned home late
yesterday for a brief rest period after a
campaign in Australia which brought him
the heavyweight title of the Antipodes.
Wiggins stated today that his manager.
George Puiford, has been negotiating
with Gibbons' manager for a bout and
feels certain the match w-ill go through.
If so, it w.:l ne staged In Milwaukee
within the next month.
Hoosierdom’s strongest contender for
the heavyweight laurels of the world re
turned to Indianapolis showing no marks
of his conflicts with the Anfopodes bat
tlers and, having taken on ten addi
tional pounds during the trip, looks bet
ter than ever before. At the present
time he is suffering from a slight at
tack of catarrh and it is possible that
he will have an operation performed on
his nose in a few days.
After a few weeks of rest Chuck in
tends to take a journey through the
heavyweight ranks of this country, which
he hopes will wind up with bouts with
Bob Martin and Georges Carpentler. Pul
ford is now waiting for a reply from a
request to the A. E. F. champ for a
match. Tom Andrews, manager of the
stable of American boxers who toured
Australia with Wiggins, has stated that
he would like to take Wiggins to Lon
don for a series of bouts In the near
future, but the local bov does not intend
to cross the water until be has had a
chance at some of the topnuotchers on
this side. Jack Darcy, whom YY'iggins
met In San Francisco last week, was de
feated with ease in four rounds.
Chuck now tips the scales at 170
pounds, but’during his tour of Australia
he had littlp trouble laying men weigh
ing 200 pounds and more on the shelf.

In a track and field meet replete with
sensational dive-for-the-tape finishes De
Pauw thlnly-eleds defeated the Indian
apolis Athletic and Canoe club athlete*
at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium last night.
The final count was DePauw. 47; Indtau
apolla Athletic and Canoe Club, 43.
Coach Ray Bonstb's relay men captured
that event In fast time, gaining a lap.
seventy yards, on the college men. The
relay did not count points. The time
for the relay was four minutes fifty-six
and one-fifth seconds, but It must be re
membered that each relay man ran 450
yards, which is ten yards over the quar
ter-mile measurement. This was done in
order that each man would run an eveu
slx laps, as the race was run in pursuit
style, with tbe teams starting on oppo
site sides of the track.
The relay race was the crowning sea
ture of one of the most successful Indoor
track meets held In this city In many
years. Atkin* started for the Indian
apolls team and gained a big margin
over Kauffman. VY'achstetter took the

Webster. H. Jones made a desperate ef
fort to close up tbe lead for tbe college
team, but Cady was too fast and the
lAtbletic club was leading by a lap
when Cady broke tbe tape.
Ragon Naney put the Indianapolis
team in front at the start of the meet

One of the features of the meet was
the work of Tommy Atkins of the In
dianapolis team. Called upon at the
last minute to run the quarter mllo
when one of his teammates failed to
appear. Atkin* lost the race by lnche*
to R. Mason of DePsuw. The time wa*
58 2-5 second*, but the men ran ten
yards over the quarter-mile distance, a*
they were running in pursuit style.
There 1s no telling Just what Paul

Independent quintets. Three of the
who will be seen here Tuesday night,
YY’asmund. Boosey and Runkel, have trod
the courts In Rayl uniforms for the last

old school and well versed In every art
of the game. Despite their long experi
ence they are still youngsters In years
and regular demons for work. The De
troit combination will arrive here with
a record of eighteen victories out of
twenty-one games played this season.
Coin Shower at Track
Meet Comes When One
of Judges Does Brodie
There was joy In the hearts ot a num
ber of small boys at the close of the
track meet between the Indianapolis Ath
letic and Canoe club and DePauw uni
versity at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium
last night.
Just as the crowd was leaving the
gymnasium money began to shower down
from the edge of the running track.
Nickels and dimes and even quarters
and half dollars pelted the boys on
their heads and there was a wild scram
ble for the easy money.
Only those who were on the track
at the time knew where the money was
coming from. One of the judges aiding
in conducting the meet started to run
up the steep bank of the running track
at the east end of the gymnasium and
slipped and fell. Though this judge was
a newspaper man he had money. His
cash was in nickels, dimes, quarters and
half dollars, and as he fell the coin
dropped out of his pocket and sprinkled
on the track and much of it rolled over
the edge and dropped to the first floor
of the gvmnasium bringing joy to the
hearts or a group of boys who “just
needed a little carfare hom.”
The young man invoiced and gathered
np the few coins that had remained on
the track.
"Gee,” he said. “This track meet cost
me $2.25.” •

NEW YORK, Feb. 20.—Jimmy Wilde,
champion flyweight boxer, ha* todffy
proved his right to the title of tbe best
little man in the ring. Wilde made hi*
first bow to eastern boxing fans at Jer
sey City last night and disposed of
Mickey Russell in seven rounds.
The Britisher's victory, decisive though
it was, did not lmnress the boxing fans
as much as bis exhibition of cleverness
and hitting ability, because Russell wua
no match for him. Wilde is a scientific,
two-handed scrapper. He is a good
judge of distance and he can hit with
either hand. Ills footwork and aggres
siveness impressed the fan*. At In
fighting the little Briton ranks away
above the average British boxer. That
he Is going to be a dangerous opponent
for the big percentage of American ban
tamweights is a certainty.
Those who saw Russell led to the chop
ping block were impressed with Wilde's
cool, deliberate and merciless style of
fighting. He made a punching bag of
Russell, and though he did not exhibit
his knockout punch—Russell's handlers
tossing in tbe towel—there is no denying
the fact that he can punish an opponent.
His right hand is his best asset.
