INDIANS PACK BAGS FOR TRIP TO SOUTHLAND Tribe Squad Departs Early Wednesday Morning for St. Petersburg Camp. MORE PLAYERS ARRIVE Infielders Sehreiber and Long, the lat ter a recruit recommended by Ollie O’Mara, were morning arrivals here to day to join the Indianaapolts baseball •club as it packed up for the start for its spring training trip to St. Petersburg, PTa. Other players were'■expected to drift In this afternoon and Manager Hendricks planned to hold a get-to gether session this evening with the regulars and rookies. lMtchers Crum and Ferrell, Infielder Wolf and Catcher Hen ltne reported Tuesday and all stated they were anxious to hop the rattler for Dix ieland. Pitcher Caret and First Base man Covington will not come to Indian apolis for the trip, but will go to the spring camp directly from their homes. BRONKIE SENDS DEFINITE WORD. Definite word has been received from Herman Bronkle that he can not leave home at this time due to the serious illness of his wife. Herman was on the point of packing up his baseball togs again when his wife became ill and he informed Owner Smith that as the phy sicians had advised an operation ho thought it best to give up all thoughts of baseball for the present. Ollie O'Mara is still a holdout, but th 9 Tribe officials are confident that the heavy hitter will join the team because the terms offered Ollie read In big league figures. A strenuous spring training schedule has. been mapped out and Owner Smith and Manager Hendricks are going to great expense to give Indianapolis fans a team to be proud of. The fact that the pitching staff needs bolstering and that Veterans Yerkes and Bronkie will not be present and that O’Mara is a holdout does not seem to be worrying the club directors. Owner Smith is going south with the squad and will be on hand to aid Hendricks in any deals proposed. Negotiations are on with a few big league camps and when the majors begin weed ing out surplus talent the Indians will have their nets spread. EXHIBITIONS WITH BIG LEAGUERS. Exhibition games have been Looked In Florida with tho Washington Americans, Cincinnati Reds, Brooklyn Dodgers and Havana Stars and then later games will be played with Chattanooga at Cnatta* nooga and on the return home the De troit Tigers will be met at Washington park In three games April 10. 11 and 111. Manager Hendricks is known as a hard worker In spring training and it won’t be long until he has the squad stacking up In condition. The Tribe party ar rives in St. Petersburg Thursday night and the first practice will be held Fri day morning, so it looks like the ath letes are due to feel the aching kinks early. St. Petersburg is advertised as an ideal training spot, and if that is true Man ager Hendricks says the fans <-an ex pect to see an ideal club la Tribe uni forms the corning season. The pulse of the fan usu 'ly is low at this time ol the year, du to the lack of definite in formation on the probable lineup of the Indians, but the fact that Owner r*mith is spending a huge roll for spring train ing would seem to indicate thut he’s determined to put a pennant contender in the field. 19 K.

Debonairs Ready for the Ferndales As the basketball season draws near a close, the attention of local fans is claimed by the Debonair-Ferndale scrap, the windup contest of their three-game series, to be staged at the Y. M. C. A. Saturday night. The game is the feature attraction of the Indianapolis card this week and, with both teams in the best of shape and eager for action, should result In one of the season's classiest ex hibitions. The Ferndales ran through long pass ing and basket shooting drill on the Haughville court last night and. seem to be none the worse off for their short va cation. The injuries to the plavers which caused them to slow up in their last game with the "Debs” have all healed and there is nothing to keep them from throwing their full strength against their old rivals. Coach Squires says his Debonairs, champions of the City Amateur Basket ball association, should put up their best game Saturday and he is confident that they will trounce the west side ag gregation.

EL DIE ASH TIMES 26 Leading Quintets Tune Up for State Basketball Classic Noosier Net Fans Turn Eyes Toward Bloomington, Where Finals Open Thursday . HOW THE DOPE LOOKS The greatest and biggest basketball tournament ever staged in the country will come to a close on the Indiana uni versity floor, Bloomington. Saturday night, after the twenty-six high school sectional tournament winners battle through Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and, while there are plenty of “wise birds" who are shock full of information on who is not going to win the cham pionship, none is practically fond of posting his shekeies on any certain team to come through with flying colors. This is due, mostly, to the peculiar way in which the schedule worked out. READING FIVES IN SAME BRACKET, Here's what Is causing all the doubt. Anderson, Franklin, Martinsville, South Bend and Emerson are looked upon as the five best high school teams in the state, and under ordinary conditions any one of the number would be considered with more than the ordinary chance to cop the big title. However, the condi tions are far from ordinary. These five teams are placed in the same bracket of the schedule and they are going to have to knock the socks off each and one an other before they get into the late rounds, and it is a cinch that all of these “won der fives" are going to be fairly well used up before they get a chance at the teams in the other half of the schedule. Th-;s means that the Technical High school athletes, champions of tile- local district, have a good chance to pull some surprise stuff. They stack up with Ken dallville for their first opponent. In dianapolis dopesters don't know much about this team, but comparative scores 'how that the east aiders should win the contest. Then Tech will rest while others work in the seeond ronnd. having drawn a bye. The game that the local fans will be interested in in the second round will be the one between tbe win ners of the Jefforson-Bloomlngton and Oolumbns-Kofeomo games. Tecb will clash with the team that comes through this contest with flying colors, in the third round. Neither of these teams particularly strong and the stamina of the Green and White athletes, not for getting the fact that they have had a day of rest, should stick them on the top side of the count. Then come the semi-finals. Tech probably will meet Hartford O. U. BUSHER Am REPORTING V " /for th’ ‘MORNIN .2.7? / WHAT DID X.

Jones was oue of the five se lected. Champion Herron has also declined the honor, like Jones, his reason being loss of time involved. Entry of Gymnasts in A . A . U. Meet March 17 Boosts City's Chances The entrance of the Normal college of the North American Gymnastic union into the Junior indoor I. A. A. U. cham pionships to be staged at the state fair grounds coliseum, March 17, under the auspices of the Indianapolis Athletic and Canoe club, swells the local entry list to five clubs and gives more assur ance of classy performances in each event on the program. Dr. Carl B, Sputh announced yester day that the Physical Eds have been training hard In preparation for the meet, and they are confident of copping high honors against the field of Btar athletes who will gather here from all big athletic clubs, colleges and univer sities In the state. The gymnasts are boasting of their distance men and they believe they have a two-miler who can Bhow Paul Koehring, the star of the Canoe club team, what real speed is. Quite a bit of rivalry exlits between the N. C. N. A. G. U. and Canoe club ath letes and they will fight each other hard in every event. The South Side Turner and Debonair club teams are rapidly rounding into shape and* they will both bid high for honors In the track events. Like the gymnasts the Turners and Debonairs are strong in distance talent. George Starbuek. coach of the Debonair team, Is their star one-mile runner and there are possibilities of bis copping that race. D. J. Tracy to Manage Independent A. C. Daniel J. Tracy, formerly of the Hotel Keverin, has been named manager ol the Independent Athletic club, and Harry Thompson, formerly of the Country club, has been named steward, it is announced by Albert E. Uhl, president, and the members of the board of directors. Tho noonday luncheons and the Sunday eve ning dinners of the club are growing in popularity. LOCAL UMPIRE SIGNED.

BASKET BALL Maybe Yanks Gave Armando for Ruth BOSTON, March 9.—The return to organized baseball of Armando Mar sans, ‘Cuban outfielder, formerly with the Cincinnati Nationals and New York Americans, is announced from the spring training camp of the Bos ton Americans at Hot Springs, Ark. Marsans signed a contract with a Red Sox agent at Havana yesterday, it was stated. The arrangement by which the local club obtained Mar sans’s services from New York was not made public. City in their semi-final scrap, if they get that far. And they are big and husky enough to give that team a good run for the money, if not a trimming, thereby paying their entrance fee to the final jam. The Franklin scrappers are picked to go to tbe final round in the bottom bracket and it must be said that Franklin Is one of the big favorites. There are a lot of other ways to dope out the tourna ment progress, but there Is no denying that Tech has an excellent chance of a lifetime to cop the state rag this year. They have the "softest" road that has been pointed out to an Indianapolis school in the history of the state high school tourney and are about as husky as any team In the event. DePauw Men Name Gipson New Leader Bobby Gipson, forward, floor guard and back guard, was chosen to captain the 1920-in DePauw basketball team by members of the “D" men of this season's aggregation at a banquet given tn honor of the squad here last night.

The Pork Chops kept the Rotary league In style by forfeiting to the Shoe Strings. The Deuces Wild gave the Bell Hops two wins and then trounced them once, just to show them that they weren’t so much as they thought they were.

At the close of the most successful basketball season ever enjoyed by college teams in Indiana, Purdue university is the state college champion. The class of basketball tn Indiana is far superior to that played in most states and this is due to the system used to determine the high school champions each year, that Is, by a series of district tourneys, the winners of which meet a week Later to fight it out for the state laurel. Thla training baa developed some ! of the most wonderful players the coun- ] try has ever known. These men hare j chosen to attend the various Indiana col- | leges and as a result the Hoosler colleges \ have basketball teams of extraordinary class. WABASH HAS reel UAR RECORD. It seems that DePauw has the second best team <n the state. Purdue defeated j DePauw twice, but each time It was by j a margin of only one point However, i Wabash should have something to say ! about the placing of DePauw, tbe foi- j lowers of Wabash pointing to that school's victory over Purdue and the vie- j tory over Del’auw last week. Both Di Pauw and Purdue also have victories | over Wabash, as has Notre Dame and Earlham, hut Wabash has defeated , Coppers Show Boys They Know Something About Basket Rules Basketball is not usually regarded a rough gnme, but fighting Is rough sport. Getting arrested for lighting in a basketball game is still rougher. That Is Just what happened to two young athletes at the Chrlst.amore set tlement. house, 1806 Columbia avenue, Monday night. Harold Hedegaard, 050 North Oriental street. Is alleged to have kicked Paul McCallle, 1(515 North Arsenal avenue, a player on the opposing team. That is said to have started a free for-all tight. Two new players arrived on the scene. They were Motor Policemen Flnneran nnd Belfort. They played forward, cen ter and guard and won the game for the police department, for they arrested both Hedegaard and McCnllle on the charge of assault and battery. 1920 THOROBRED (Sport Model) LEXINGTON MOTOR SALES Distributor, 846 N. Meridian St. Indianapolis CUE GOSSIP Earlham and Notre Dome, and Earlham’s claim to honors is knocked out by two games lost to Rose Poly. * The Engineers were defeated three times by Indiana State normal. The Teachers lost by a one-sided score to DePauw and Franklin defeated Hanover, Rose Poly, Indiana State normal and the Indiana Dentals, but lost to DePauw. St. Joseph college and Valparaiso uni versity also proved to be prominent teams this year. Wabash defeated Valpo by a margin of only two points and St- Joseph won and lost to Valparaiso. Where Indiana university ranks would be hard to say as that school had so few games In this'state, not meeting DePauw and Wabash as in other years. The Ind.ana College Athletic league honors, such as they were were won by Franklin college, the only member of the league that was not defeated by some other I O. A L. team. Franklin lost to DePauw, but the Tigers are not in the I O. A. L. The teams in the I. C. A. L. are Franklin. Wabash. Earl ham. Rose Poly, Indiana State Normal and Butler. Hanover no longer is a member of tho league. Franklin did not meet Wabash and Earlham. Pike was the star dc'enslve man of the Franklin team, but Ross was the big goal getter. Ills basket shooting was sensutlonal. but In tho game the writer saw- him work ho was closely covered and found the goal on but one occasion. Ross does not cover the floor well. If be did he would be named on the first all-state team. a he is probably the best basket shot in the state. “Spud" Campbell is a fast floor guard, and fits playing did much to place Coach John Thurber's team high among the schools of the state. While it Is impossible to place tbe teams according to their probable strength, with the exception of Purdue, which is without a question the beet quintet in the state, still it is possible ti select a mythical five, naming the best players on the first team and also select fug two other quint** ami giving hon orable mention to those players who deserve it. On the flrst team Cannon of DePauw and Adam of Wabash are named as forwards. These two men are wonderful goal allots and in all games were the important cogs In their re spective machines. Dean of Indiana, fa mous as a foul goal shot, ns well as a powerful athlete on both offense and defense, is without a question the best center in tue state. Campbell of Purdue is close to Dean, and Pike of Franklin is the big start of that aggregation. DePnuw used two center#--Curtis and Miller—and both were good. Standau. the Rose Poly man. la a big athlete, and in some ways ta close to the class shown by the men named on the first teams. Gilbert of Val paraiso la one of the beat goal shots on am- team in tbe state. Chnr - h, the Purdue star, clayed both forward and guard. Asa guar.! he is equal to the best, but as a forward Can non and Adams outclass him. Mehre. the big score man on Notre Dame, played both center and forward and is given second team honors. Tllson of Purdue and Winters of Indiana State Normal are third team forwards. Few athletes in the state class with the speedy, power ful Winters as a goal shot. It was Purdue's defense that made tile Boilermakers almost unbeatable. Miller and White are the pair of guards who caused the trouble for all opponents White’s class as a goal shot Is shown when it is mentioned that he caged eleven field goals against Ohio State in the last game his team played with the Buckeyes Miller probably is the best back guard that has ever played basket ball in the state of Indiana. Phillips of Indiana and Mendenhall of DePauw make the second best defensive combination. Johnson, the giant Earl ham guard, and Burns, the Wabash col lege star defensive man. are given third team positions Grater of Wabußh went big in the game when the Little Giants defeated DePauw. To mention guards and not say something of Witter of the Indiana Dental college team would be to overlook one of the fastest, cleanest and best basketball players in the state. By PARKS •HEZE CLARK ■ NEWS roxjNb SMITH TO REFEREE) WILDE-MASON GO TOLEDO, March 9.—Ed Smith of Chi cago will referee tbe Jimmy Wilde- Frankle Mason twelve-round bout for the flyweight championship of the world here Friday evening. After more than an hour in conference with Dave Hughes, man ager for Wilde, and the Welshman him self, the Toledo boxing commission came to the conclusion that Wilde will not alter his opinion, which is in opposition to Ollie Peeord of Toledo, as referee, and virtually gave in on the question of an arbiter. Hughes and Wilde were given until Thursday to make their final deel sion. It is certain, however, the Welsh man will t-olti out against Peeord, and in that ev t Smith will officiate. Wilde’s objections to Peeord are base* largely on that official's work at the Wil lard-Dempsey affair last July 4. He told Ad Thaeher, who is promoting the bout, that he would not fight for Peeord, and the referee question was left open n"* 1 ) Monday. Peeord, more* than a month ago, wnen he heard of Wanes otjecwu.., gracefully withdrew from any considera tion, but the commission held out that be should offieite If it was possible to induce Wilde to go on with him in the ring.
