BASEBALL NEWS of the DAY IN Eddie Ash TACKLE WORLD CHAMPIONS IN SECONDSCRAP Indians Drop First Tilt, but Hoped for Better Results Today. VETERANS GET CHANCE SAX AXTOXIO. Texas, March 23- Fifteen hits and nine runs was the after noon's work of the Xew York Giants, world's champions, in the game with the Indianapolis American Association team here yesterday, in the first of a two-game series, while the Indians' best effort was three runs, which came In the sixth inning as a result of Coving ton's triple with Baird and Kehg on base and Schreiber's single, which scored the Tribe's hefty first baseman. The Giants waded Into the offerings of three Indianapolis pitchers with healthy results and began the scoring in the first frame when Bancroft and Young hit safely for one run. The clan of McGraw began in earnest in the third Inning and nicked Lee Bartlett for live hits, which, coupled with a base on balls, sent five of the New Yorkers scampering over the chalking platter. Bartlett was a trifle unsteady during the time he occupied the firing line, and Seib, who followed him, also was given a rousing reception, Snyder getting a home run in the melee. On defensive play the Indians rivaled the world champions, and the work of the infield was of especially tiue order. The Giants were unable to get away with a thing here and Pug Csvet, who took up the pitching work in the seventh, also had the National League stars popping up, and retired them runless. Manager Hendricks planned to send; three veterans to the b’Lock in the second ' game today, Jess Petty, Harry Weaver end Clint Rogge being scheduled fori three innings each. The Indians were out j for this game and with an even break; stood a good chance to grab the contest. | The Tribe wili leave for Marlin Springs | after the contest and will play the Giants’ second team there for two games. March 31 is breaking up day at Marlin, j when the Indians begin the trip North. A two-day stop at Tulsa is scheduled. NOTES OF FIRST GIANT TILT. Trainer Lotshaw and Bill Klein were I the umpires and both held the indicator j with little Interference. Manager YTcGraw sent his best bets | against Hendricks' team, the regular i line-up playing with the exception of the two pitchers. Virgil Barnes and Benton. Both are making a good impression with the Giants' manager and apparently will be retained * regulars. .Barnes is a brother to the Giants' star, Jess Barnes. Virgil vas with the Milwaukee club last season and his work against the Indians in the game today will do much to make him solid with the Giants. Clyde Seib, who came to the Indians from an independent team, was little worried by the fact that he was pitching against the world's champions and as a whole his work was of a creditable na ture. Heinie Groh stopped the Indians' bat ting spree in the sixth inning when the Groh, Frisch, Kelly combination put j over a double play. There was nothing j slow about the play and it was a sample of what National teams may expect from '■ the Giant’s infield. Harry Purcell's fielding was the best be has done with the Tribe since his ap- i pearance. He showed little awkardness, | a faMlt which caused him to drop several fly bails at Galveston, and which appar ently was caused by over-anxiety. Covington’s triple was a screaming liner which both Meusel and Cunningham chased to the'flag pole. Only the fastest: fielding held Tex to three bases. With Frank Frisch on second and ■ Hetnie Groh on third, the Giants have about the classiest aggregation of in- I fielders ever brought together on one ; team. Groh, Frisch and Bancroft all are short and speedy, while the Giants’ first baseman, George Kelly, is one of the tallest men in the game. Kelly is a great player and rounds out a truly world's championship infield. The Tribe was disappointed became Ralph Shinners, the outfielder purchased from the Indians by the Giant* follow ing Shlnner's brilliant playing In the Association, was not in the game yester day and there was small prospects that Ralph would don a uniform today. He is confined to Ms room with a severe cold. Ralph has the inside track on the center field job with the Giants.

NEW YORK, March 23—Tentative dates set by the French committee for 1 the 1924 Olympic games will be of dis tinct benefit to the American team. The track and field sports. In which the United States is chiefly interested, are scheduled to start on June 28 and continue until July 13. This rather early date will make it possible for the American committee to conduct trials while the college athletes are In competition and it will enable college stars who make the team to sail without breaking training. Only a very late spring and unusually had weather could prevent the club ath letes from being in form that early in the season, although club games usually do not start until midsummer. In 1920 the whole Olympic program was sched uled almost a in >nth later, and it re quired months of s'most incessant com petition from the college stars to make the team. Weather in Paris in June and July is always more settled, which prompted the French authorities to choose the earlier opening day. As it seems certain now, that the French committee has met the financial requirements and will be able to stage the games in Paris, the tentative pro gram may be accepted almost as an of ficial working plan for the committee of all the nations that will compete. Competition will comprise three grouns, winter, spring and summer games. Tne opening event is set for Jan. 20, and the closing da" July 28. Skating will be conducted from Jan. 20 to Feb. 5; rugby football. May 3 to 18; association football. May 13 to June 1; shooting, June 2$ to July 7.; athletics, June 28 to July 13; fencing, June 28 to July 4; water polo, June 20 to July 4; j tennis, July 6 to July 13; yachting, June 1 24 to July 17; swimming, July 12 to 20; j gymnastics.

Manager Allen of the Denison Hotel billiard parlors has made arrungemeuts with Ralph Greeuleaf, champion pocket billiard player to appear here Monday and Tuesday of next week in four exhibi tions. The champion offers to meet any local player in 150-point matches and will give S3O to any player that beats him. Greenleaf, who is but 22 years of age, is the youngest champion in the world and since winning the title has played and won twenty-five championship matches. Greenleaf also bolds all world's records at the pocket billiard game and recently, when defending his title In match play in New York city against Thomas Hueston, former champion, made anew high run recorcb by scoring 100 balls without a miss. Accompanying Greenleaf here will be James Thompson, Carolina's famous boy wonder, who also is a pocket player of rare skill and who has on several oc casions given Greenleaf the short end of the score in exhibition play. Should Greenleaf find no local players willing to compete with him in his coming exhibi tions Thompson will assist In the exhibi tions. Manager Allen of the Denison, Is mak ing arrangements to handle a large crowd at the exhibitions. The afternoon games will be played at 3:30 p. in. while the eve ning games will start at 8:30 p. m. After each 150 balls Greenleaf will show a uum be of trick and fancy shots. nOPPE SHOWING FORM. CHICAGO. March 23.—Willie Hoppe, who will try to regain his 18 2 billiard championship from Jake Schaefer in the 1,500-point tourney starting Monday night at Orchestra Hall, is setting rec ords in bis training for the contest. Ac cording to word received today from Charlie Peterson, the star exhibition shot player, who is working with Willie in his training in St. Louis, Hoppe's re cent workouts have been sensational. In a workout yesterday afternoon, according to I'eterson. Hoppe made 403 points in an hour's play, the last 100 points being made in eight minutes. Hoppe, according to Peterson, has been playing the greatest hiliards of his in his training work. The former "boy prodigy” has made frequent runs of 200 or more and in 3.500 points played re cently established an average of close to 100. Willie will arrive in Chicago Satur day evening and will work out here for a couple of hours Sunday. While Hoppe has been practicing in St. Louis. Schaefer also has been going well in his practice here. The son of the great Jake has not been claiming any records in his practice work, but those who have watched him, assert he is in excellent stroke, and that if Hoppe Is to defeat him he will have to play phenom enal billiards to do it.

GIANTS LOSING SCRAPPY ‘REP;’ FLETCHER, DONLIN, DOYLE, OLD FIGHTERS, ARE MISSED BADLY By CCLI.EN CAIN. SAN ANTONIO, Texas, March 23. Where are ihe scrappy, raspy, rampa geous Giants of yesterday ? The wind has blown them all away. Fletcher, Don lin and Doyle; where are they’/ And Bresnahan, the terror from Tralee? Mo- Graw himself is sedate this spring as well as rotund and gray. The tropic sun has softened his brain buzzards to zephyrs, gentle as balm as they wander over the Gulf stream zone. I watched the Giants at practice Tuesday in amaze ment. They were as mild and quiet and mechanical as a missionary meeting in, Boston. McGraw was there batting to the in field in practice and taking his regular turn at the bat. All of the first team players were lined up for the final flourish, but there was no pepper In the pot or flame underneath. I asked a veteran New York sports writer about that and he sadly noted unto me: “Yes, that is their gait this year. They do not talk much and their spirit and fight are one with Ntnevah and Tyre. The White Sox came over here and beat us simply because they had more gab and the gimp and gump tion." That infield, the greatest in the game; but It is dumb. Well, maybe it is so good it does not need to spark and crackle and flame. The Giants used to be the hardest fighters In baseball and I found them here, down toward the end of the training camp tour, the quietest team of all those in the Southland. The regulars regard the youngster. ‘ Shinners, as the find of the season. He , will undertake to fill George Burns’ place in the outfield. Bancroft is heavier this | year than last and in much better health. 1 Frisch, who was spiked In practice the [other day, is out again and playing sec- j kind.

Freddie Boorde vs. Barney Barnhart, fifteen rounds, catch weights. Charlie Null vs. Jack Wynne, six rounds, 147 pounds. Kid Winters vs, Joe Dillon, six rounds, 125 pounds. Harry Dempsey, vs. Herb Skuggs, four rounds, 118 pounds. Due to Injuries to boxers and other handicaps the Ft. Harrison Boxing Club has been having some dift.cuity in get ting its main go lined up for tonights program. First, Chuck Turner and John Letot were matched for a fiifteen-round affair, but Letot injured a hand and this match was called off. Then efforts were made to substitute Maxie Epstein and Jack Terry, but something happened to that match also. However, the club matchmakers got busy today and ob tained Freddie Boorde and Barney.Barn hart to clash in the long feature bout of the evening's program. They will meet at catch weights and a slam-bang affair is promised. In the semi-windup of the show Charlie Null of Ft. Harrison will meet Jack Wynne, a local boy, in six rounds at 147 pounds. Null is a newcomer at the fort, having come from Akron. He has many victories to his credit that he gained while he was a fighter in the A. E. F. in France and Ger/iany. Wynne is a rugged fighter who carries a punch in both gloves that means disaster to any opponent that gets in his way. In the second preliminary Kid Win ters, a local boy, will meet Joe Dillon, another local boy. These boys have both participated in recent shows at the fort and elsewhere and their actions in the squared circle always have pleased the fans. Winters recently won the decision over some of the best boys that could be found in the city at his weight. Dillon recently won the hearts of many fans when he made Frankie Nelson, a local favorite, take the count. In the first preliminary bout, Harry Dempsey and Herb Skaggs of the city, will mix it for four rounds at 116 pounds. Dempsey has appeared in recent fort shows and always has glren a good account of himself. The 11th Infantry band will furnish entertainment during the show.

It Is composed entirely of deaf boys who attend tho State School for the Deaf located at Forty-Second street and tha Monon Rail Road. There has been a team representing the school ever since It was founded, but not until the last two years has much progress been made in basket-ball. The teams from this school compete with high schools over the State and usually hold their own with them. Their season's schedule also Includes a minor college team occasionally. To the ordinary basket-ball observer a deaf boy is hope lessly handicapped by his loss of bear ing, but such Is not the case for they mate up for this by their sharpness of vision, seeing many things which the average person does not Athletics at the school are at present under the direction of Arthur Norris, a local boy, who Is turning out some fast teams from the school. The squad this season put out a fast and snappy brand of basket-ball, but like the Indianapolis high schools It had a Jinx hanging around all year. They lost half of their games by a small margin of tvfo to four points. Their sea son's record follows: Silent Boosters 16, Broad Ripple H. 8. 23; S. H. 20, Knights town H. 8. 22; 8.

SWIMMING MijgmScmooi. ijLHPg’SPORTS One hindrance to athletics in the city high schools hag been the shortage of material. By the shortage of material is meant the number of athletes who turn out for the various teams and not the number enrolled in school. For com parison, Tech is said to have almost 2,000 boys in school and less than 200 turned out for btseball, which means about 10 per cent. Some solution must ba arrived at to bring out the desk-warm ers. More inter-class competition would bs of great value in locating some of this lagging material, for much of It could be Induced to play in this branch which cou. i not be induced to try out for the team, for there Is not the awe connected with this line of sport for the new comer as with the varsity team. It Is hard for this new material to break the Ice. or rather they think It la hard to get Into the select group of athletes at a school, for there is always a certain group who go out for all sports. Compulsory athletics Is Just another of tho many suggestions and has its good points along with the rest of them. Tho schools have this more or less In the gym work, but even this does not bring the prospective candidate under the eye of the coach. If it were only possible for the coach to make the rounds and pick fils material, as is done in the smaller schools, It would help atnailngly. This, of course, would be a gigantic task, but In time every boy would havo a chance to make good. Giving the team and the athletes more recognition or more glory, ao to speak, might help In bringing out some whe have had the impression that tho team was hardly worth their efforts because of imaginary poor support of the student body. In connection with giving tbs athiete more recognition, would be the setting apart of a certain section for tha letter men to witness games at horns This Is done in many places with excel lent results, and It soon becomes an honor to be one of the elect who art permitted to occupy the section. This would give added value to the letter the athletes worked so hard to obtain. Giving the athlete more encourage ment to go out for the team and giv ing him more recognition after he got there, might help greatly.

GOLF Billy Schoher and Kilonis Wrestle to Draw in Great Go Middleweights Stage Real Mat Battle, Each Gain ing One Fall. Indianapolis wrestling fans last night had a taste of the New York wrestling and boxing commission’s new wrestling rules when Billy Sehober of Indianapolis wrestled a ten-round draw- with John Kilonis of New York. The men are middleweights and the match was held at Tomlinson Hall. The rules call for a match of ten rounds, each round being ten minutes In length with two mlutes between rounds for rest. Schober’s work on the mat wag a surprise to the wrestling fans in the city. Matched against one of the beßt wrestlers In the middleweight class In the world, Sehober, who is 35 years old, and has been out of the wrestling game for about two years, was not ex pected to have a chance. Kilonis was the big favorite before the match. The men had been on the mat but a few minutes before the wrestling fans realized that they were seeing one of the best wrestling exhibitions ever staged in Indianapolis, and that Sehober was equal to Kilonis In skill and strength. He was ewery bit as aggres sive, but did not resort to the rough tactics employed by Kilonis, who was evidently surprised by the Indianapolis’ athlete's ability to break his holds and to meet him both standing and in wrestling position on the mat. Schober’s continued use of the head- \ lock, the hold he taught Ed (Strangler) I Lewis, world's heavyweight champion, I also worried Kilonis. Both men mixed j It from start to finish and It was In j the fifth round that Kilonis gave up , when Sehober applied the headlock. At the time Kilonis’ shoulders weie almost pinned and he surrendered the fall rather than to attempt to stand the punish ment of the head hold. The time of the first fall was 47 minutes and 6 seconds. The ncn came hack on the mat and Kilonis went after Sehober rough shod, and the men battled all over the canvas.

H. % RING GOSSIP Heze Clark FEAR IS FELT OYER SPEAKER’S LEG TROUBLES i Long Rest May Be Necessary to Cure Underpinning Great Star. NOT WORRIED HIMSELF DALLAS, Texas, March 23.—Trig Speaker, idol of Texas baseball fan# and one of the greatest outfielders In baseball history, may have to retire to the bench and content himself with being a pinch hitter and manager. While no official announcement has been made. Indications are that the in jury to his leg may force the peerless leader of the Cleveland Indians to taka a long rest before a permanent cure for his injury can be effected. Speaker twisted ligaments in his leg last summer and was out of the game for quite a while. During the spring train ing season this year it was noticed that he limped after making a running catch and in the game with the Cincinnati Reds here recently he was forced to re tire from the game in the second In ning. Speaker is a fighter, and one of his type does not give up easily. Os course, he will take his spring training and may try to play, but the odds are that his injury will eventually force him out of the game. “If my leg doesn't get any worse than it is today. I’ll play all season and I can't see why it should get worse.” Speaker said today. “I think It will be all, right, as there are no bones broken and the Injury is one, I think, that will not be serious. Killefer Trying Young 4) Players in Effort to Build Up Cub Machine BY MALCOLM McLEAN. CHICAGO, March 23.—The Chicago Cubs are not claiming any pennant this season. Asa matter of fact they will be well pleased If they finish witMa the first division. Unlike some clubs, notably the New York Giants, they are trying to add strength to their club with young sters rather than veteran stars costing tens of thousands of dollars. The are building against the future with real hopes of doing well In the present. Their two big problems are second base aad behind the plate. Zeb Terry played second last season and may have to do so again, but In the meantime he Is be ing tried out at third. For second, mana ger Killefer Is trying out Barney Frl berg, a Kansas City outfielder who was used at second awhile last year, and Joe Kingman, an experienced minor. These two have fair reports as hitters and If one should develop as a major second sacker a big load would be lifted off the management. Catching, now that Killefer no longer can work as frequently as before, Is a weighty matter. Bob O'Farrell Is good, and probably will do much of the work. But at least one more, better two, must be developed. Harnett and Wlrts may do. Much strength has been brought the Cubs by Left Fielder Hack Miller, a terrlffic right-hand slugger from Oak land, and the speedy center fielder, Arnold Statz, of Los Angeles, once g. Giant tryout. He Is a great runner aadl fielder and is Improving as a hltte^^flfl Fiack, If he returns to the expected, seems the usual fixture jßgjTiljj field with Kay Grimes having cal! at first base because he Charlie Hollocher Is sure of stop Job, and Johnny Kelleher is ll- 1 nicely at third base. The club will have two experlesicSJ pitchers In Alexander and Martin. There are three other good twirlers In Jones, Freeman and Cheeves, and flna young sters In Kauffman, Osborne, Aldridge, Keen and Stueland. One of this num ber will be dropped as Manager Killefer Is figuring on carrying nine twirlers. Semi-Finals in Hand-ball MILWAUKEE, Wls., March 23.—Semi finals In tho senior singles of the national A.
