SP.ORTING j CHARLES MURPHY HAS PLAN 10 TEACH NATIONAL GAME Here's Your Chance, Kids, to Learn the Fine Points of th Great Pastime By Correspondence Already the Mail Bags Are Full of Letters Containing Suggestions." Charles Murphy, owner of the Cubs, favora a school of base-ball. In which fans will bo permitted to submit sug gestions looking to the betterment of ,l. pport Jinil also propound epilations that have baltled them. Alreudy, the mall ha km are full of communication! luldrexncd to the School of Baseball. Hi re are ii few: When ixtndt la here and Cobb Is ,,,, wilh the bases full, wouldn't he I,.- forced to answer the telephone If there was a cull at the offlco for him? - !i(T WatkliiB, rhiladelphla. I'cally, I can not understand why the big iiigu' tuvnita stand for nueh a short Hchedule. They ly'nild easily open tin- mason on Feb. 1 and clone It on I !.. 1 f they used proper judgment. Why In the Orange Free State the luitives play t.h.' royal game f buuf uuufnuuf. which is Flrlctly an outdoor pastime, all the yor around. Look this up. Mr. Murphy. Percy Nutt, Mailt a wan, N. Y. . I run chairman of a oommitte of 300 wealthy southern planters, formed to lalne $!i,fl0,00 to chase the hookworm out of the south. Already we have received $4.7!fl,ooO, but haven't been able to get a cent more. Therefore, we have decided to turn this money over to a fund to provide for destitute wives and children of National and American league owners. If you are willing to accept the money, a check will be mailed Immediately. Beverley Lee Jackson, Natchez, Miss. To Improve the game-, I would mere. Iv suggest that a time lock be put on the tongue of the leugue owners, so that they will be sihnt from '.ct. 1 to April 15. Iva Payne, Mahony Plane, Pa. I am unequivocally In favor of a longer baseball season. There Is not one of us In my Immediate vicinity that would not be glad to be In n big league baseball park, even as late as Jan. 1. Mike Gunn, Sing Sing, N. Y. I'.aseball, the National league In par lloular, would be much more enjoy able If liana Wagner were debarred from playing for the rest of his na tural life. Frank Chance, Chicago. Wo are organizing a league In Posey county for next season. Ia it true that the groundkeeper must be place! on the reserve list? Roger Waters, Rapture, Ind.

If the York team, tallender of the Trl-stato league Is a Class It cluh, will somebody kindly figure out what class the Ronton Nationals were In last season? Prof. Hi Rrowne, Hus ton. ' National league baseball might be a great deal better next year If tha. ow n ers engaged Long Tom, the Kentucky plant, for president. He would, at least, be big enough for the Job. Pete McSwatt, Chagrin Falls, O. HAS BIG BATTLE CINCHED. California Regarded Logical Place for Jeffries-Johnson Fight. New York, Nov. 24. Fight follow ers are paying absolutely no attention to the offers being made for the Jeffries-Johnson fight that came from any place except California. It looks to he n. cinch that cither the bid of Jack (Reason of San Francisco, Jimmy Coffrolh of the Colma A. C, or Tom McCarey of Los Angeles will be suc cessful. California, Is practically the only state where the fight can be held with out danger of Interference. Nevada could probably pull off the fight, but the principals themselves are known to Incline to California and the public, too, would look upon the selec tion of this state with greater favor as it would know that the fight would then take jdace according to program. POSSIBLE EXPLANATION. "Say, ma," queried llttlo Ida Innllt, "why do women always cry at a wed ding?" "The married ones cry, my dear, bemuse they know how It Is them selves, and the unmarried ones uo oauso they don't," replied Mrs. Innltt. Chicago News.

IN HISTORY Football Experts Inclined to Belief that Coy's Aggregation it Best That Ever Stepped on Field Michigan Counted as Western Champions De spite Notre Dami Victory, Now York, Nov. 24. Footbull critics lire debuting whether this year's Yule team la not the equal of any team that ever stepped on a field. The Yale team of Wi is the Ural team since 'modern football" that completed Its season without being floored on. The opportunities for scor ing by an, Inferior team are Infinitely greater under the new rules. It I doubtful If a football team was ever welded together thut" had such all round perfection as the Yale team had. It was a team without a Haw and whenever It found one lino of either uttaok or defense Ineffective It eventually solved any problem that confronted it. Harvard gets second place In the eastern rating, but rnt to the. other positions there is sure to be much debute. Michigan will be counted the west ern champion despite the fact that the Notre Datno team administered i severe and unexpected defeat to Yost' men. Critics will generally look upon Notre Dame's victory as one of tin uncertainties of thw game, just as Yale and Harvard have occasionally been aught ol'f form and defeated by smaller teams. Notre Dame's record for the season, however, shows that the Catholics have a wonderful team. The west shows up stronger this year than ever before In the Internee tional Raines. Michigan defeated Pennsylvania; Chicago tied with Cor nell and Illinois defeated Syracuse, as did also Michigan. With the possible exception of Yale and Harvard, it Is probable that Michigan, Minnesota and Notre Dame could have held their own with any of the eastern teams. Columbia university has a walking squad. The American Automobile associa tion meets in New York Nov. 30. Yale's new swimming pool holds lCO.om) gallons of water. Canadian athletic clubs will form a big union in Toronto, Nov. 27. Harvard's varsity football players may Join the soccer eleven. Canadian pigeon fanciers have made entries In the Cincinnati show. Cornell alumni field fund Is now $70, (100. und an effort will be made to teach f 100,000 by Jan. 1. John Howies, Irish handball cham pion, who was beaten by James Kelly of Brooklyn in a recent home and home series, has returned to Limerick. Heloit college of Wisconsin Is plan ing to hold an Intercollegiate wrestling match there In January. Aleck Dunbar and Harry Cohn of New York rolled 54." pins In a two man team bowling match at Uticu against Hckert and Krause of that city. Cohn knocked down 2GS and Dunbar 277. Dick Wainwrlght, one of England's oldtime bare knuckle boxers, died In London recently at the age of SS years.

Since he broke with Fred Lake, Hos ton fans would like to ask waivers on owner Taylor of the speed boys. Washington critics figure that Ger many Schaefer will have to start In training about Dee. 1 If he hopes to get a regular place with the new Na tionals next season. They don't seem to like healthy gentlemen at the capi tal. Dummy Taylor Is coaching a Kans is football eleven. Shortly before his team's big game of tin season a news, paper writer asserted that Taylor was sawing wood and saying nothing. Quickly did organized baseball de vour the California peach. The only outlaws remaining are the Sixth Ward Juniors who next year are willing to meet any 1" year old team offering a fair guarantee, etc. Jim McCSuiro Is a peculiar chap. He doeesn't want his men to play base ball In winter. In summer he's not so squeamish. Han Johnson denies the story that he Is going to blow Ids Job to peddle washing machines In Chicago. The American league Is now quite reliev ed. Why don't Jeffries nnd Johnson drop a quick curtain on all the monkey business and award the fight to cither Coffroth or Gleason? George Gibson has an offer to go into vaudeville. He did one a day nil season with Tittsburg and should be able to do two a day without much trouble. Fred Merkln Is doing detective work In Toledo. And ho Is the fellow who couldn't find second base on a ball field! After careful study we find football a more dangerous sport than even draw poker. Garry Herrmann, of the reds, does not care to have Hob Hosche, the widely. known fllcher of divers sacks THE VAMPIRE. on the burning runways, play football In the olV season.

The vote was reversed and the bill passed. "With sneh live Issues In hand, th housekeeper Is in civics up to her el bows. Mrs. Crr.no was called to other cities to tell of the experience In Kala mazoo. Tin fact that Kalamazoo pre sents the needs of the normal small jelly makes that experience significant. J Hut her method Is not merely to tell of it, but to go to the city which sends for her, and study It In terms of Kal amazoo. This she did, for Instan?e, In Frio, WJIlkesbarrc and Seranton, Pa. Tier largest commission was this 1at sprinir In Kentucky, when for five weeks she worked under the Joint aus pices of the Slate Hoard of Health, the State Federation of Women's clubs end the American Medical association. Twelve cities were visited, a hundred question sent ahead to each city, anl Institutions and sanitary conditions Inspected In company with the gov ernor of the state, mayors and health etllei-rs and volunteer workers. How Mrs. Cr.me covered so much ground was a riddle to her hosts, but die knew- what to go for. Ter finding were put forth at citizens' mass meet ings, and In printed reports In which rhe vigorously condemned sewer-con-tamlrated water supplies, miserable tenements, filthy school basements, 'discomfort. Pith and pitiable neglec.,' In many almshouses, the women who pounded stone In work-houses, lna.1- ojuute heulth appropriations, children housed with ui'ulta in jails, and the like. oN less unstinted was her appr e ciation of the work of some aUte of ficfin."andof the n vvTiioveinents ttr sanitary well-being and social regen eration which are today kindling Ken tucky.
