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.
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

The Tribe is having its troubles and
a pitcher of Hall's caliber will go a
long way toward putting the team up

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.
With Hall in line the Tribe staff will
consist of Cavet. Murray, Lynch and
Petty, left-handers, and Rogge and Hall,
Therefore, when this corps gets to

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
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

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.

staging a contest this afternoon.
The orphan Indians, orphaned tem

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

and suspended for ten days by President
Hickey for the trouble growing out of
the runin with Empire Finneran and the

Finneran always has had a chip on his

The suspension means that Manager

Athletes Prepare for Games.
NEW YORK, April 29—The college
pentathlon and the International two-mile
relay are the outstanding events of the
Penn relay games scheduled to he run
at Franklin field, Philadelphia, tomor
row and Saturday.
The great revival of Interest in this
“Olympic” year, the Invasion of the Ox
ford-Cambridge runners and the fact that
•317 schools and colleges are entered in
sures the success of the games and it is
expected that a number of records will
be shattered.
While the Penn relays are not to be
counted as trials for prorpective Olym
pic team members, they will be a sort
of barometer, and It is expected sev
eral distance runners and a number of
all-round athletes will be uncovered as
worthy Olympic team timber.

In which the Oxford-Cambridge stars,
Rudd, Montague. Tatham and Milligan,
are to compete against the best collegiate
