DEAL WITH BLUES WHEREBY TRIBE WILL OBTAIN HURLER PROBABLY WILL GO THROUGH PITCHER HALL DECIDES HE’LL ACCEPT TERMS Twirler Employed Here Recon siders and Is Ready to Re port to Indians. CRUM BELIEVED STOPPED By EDDIE ASH. Pitcher Herb Hail, now employed at the Nordyke-Marmon plant, whom Jack Hendricks tried to obtain Monday in a deal whereby Outfielder Zwilllng would have gone to the Kansas City cluib, to 4ay announced he had reconsidered his determination to remain out of league baseball and would sign with the In dianapolis team for the terms offered Monday night. Hall today wired Manager Hendrick* in Columbus of his willingness to accept the Tribes offer and is awaiting orders to report. The new situation will call for the re opening of the deal with Kansas City and it is likely that Hendricks got in touch with Manager McCarthy of the Blues today regarding the matter. PREFERS TO FLAY WITH INDIANS. Hall is under reserve to Kansas City, but does not wish to play with that club because of his connection with the Nor dyke-Marmon company here. If Hall joins the Indians the Nordyke- Marmon officials will grant him a leave of absence, it is said, and he can re sume his work with the loral auto build ers after the baseball season closes. If this arrangement is made the Indi anapolis ball club and local fans will he indebted to the Marmon baseball boost ers for their interest in the success of the Hoosiers. The Tribe is having its troubles and a pitcher of Hall's caliber will go a long way toward putting the team up in the American association race. He is a big right-hander and is rated a strong Class AA hurler. , He Is In good shape now. having pitched a shutout game for the Logan sport club onlv last Sunday. He was credited with winning twenty one games for Kansas City last season. PITCHING STAFF GROWING STRONG. With Hall in line the Tribe staff will consist of Cavet. Murray, Lynch and Petty, left-handers, and Rogge and Hall, right-handers. Therefore, when this corps gets to working id order the Indians no doubt will upset things quite frequently m the A. A. race. In addition to the pitchers mentioned It Is known that Manager Hendricks is still striving lor a good prospect with cue of the eastern major league clubs. Secretary Clauer announced at Wash ington park today that he had received information from Owner Smith that Pitcher Cal Crum, alleged jumper, would not be permitted to play with the Beth lehem club of the Steel league, which, it is said, influenced Crum to desert the Indians. Crum is supopsed to have left the city Monday with Roxey Roach, Steel league agent, to join the Bethlehem club. Owner Smith immediately went east to stop the player and, although Smith did not see Crum, he conferred with Steel league directors, and is said to have blocked the pitcher from playing at Beth lehem or with other Steel league dubs Secretary Clauer received a letter from Crom yesterday, in which the twirler Stated that he had decided to quit base ball and that he wanted to square his financial account with the Indians. Clauer will let the matter rest until representatives of the Indianapolis team pick up the pitcher's trail and learn his exact whereabouts. In winning the American association opening day attendance trophy Toledo broke all attendance records in this league. The league has teen organized nineteen years and it’s a big feather in the cap of Roger Bresnahan to set anew mark for crowds. Paid attendance at To ledo Tuesday was 14,945. which topped St. Paul's figures by more than 800. Jack Hendricks will be a long distance manager for a few days following the S4OO fine and ten-day suspension imposed on him by President Hickey as a result of the fracas at the ball park last Sun day. Jack, therefore, will have to do his managing from the grand stand. Indianapolis club officials question the heavy penalty imposed, because in Hlck ev’s announcement not a word was said about the Louisville club’s part in the trouble. The Colonels •’stalled" as well as the Indians, but Umpire Finneran evidently overlookeed the part the visit ors played. Finneran has had the repu tation of being unusually severe on the Indians ever since Je has been in the league and it is evident that in his re port to Hlckev he went the limit in placing the blame for the disorder on the Indianapolis club.

TRIBE RESUMES SENATOR SERIES Cavet Picked to Hurl for the Orphan Indians. COLUMBUS, 0., April 29.—Weather conditions improved here today and In dians and Senators seemed certain of staging a contest this afternoon. The orphan Indians, orphaned tem porarily because of the suspension of Manager Jack Hendricks for ten days, hoped to do a comeback and break their losing streak. Pug Cavet whs slated to pitch for the Tribe and, as he held the Senators to three hits and shut them out in Indian apolis recently, his mates were all gin gered up In anticipation of victory. The Indians wdre on an even footing with the K. C. Blues today in regard to the occupancy of seventh and eighth places In the league race, and they planned to make strenuous efforts to keep out of the A. A. hole. When Manager Hendricks was advised last night that ho had .een fined 8400 and suspended for ten days by President Hickey for the trouble growing out of the runin with Empire Finneran and the forfeited game at home last Sunday, It was quite a shock to ;be Tribe boss and his players, because nothing was said apparently in Finneran’s report to Hickey regarding tho Louisville club’s part In tho fracas.

Finneran always has had a chip on his shoulder when officiating in Indianapolis games and it is evident that he has not removed It since last season. The suspension means that Manager Hendricks will not be able to direct his men from the field for ten days and therefore it was expected that Ollie O’Mara would have to boss the job today In addition to holding down his regular third base berth.
