The Snappers put up a great game
of ball at Selma yesterday and wjth
even greater pitching by Benn blanked
the Selmaites for nine innings, en
sacola scored once through the grace
of Wyll, the opposing twlrler. who
forced In a run when he issued free
transportation to Miller. Only one
man reached third for Selma. A big
crowd gathered at the matinee to hear
the plays called and It was a happy
crowd when the last man filed out to
Miller In center. By virtue of the vic
tory the Snappers are perched in sec
ond place tod? 7.
Manager Hamilton selected Benn to
shoot them over for the Snappers and
the big fellow was in great form. He
yielded three hits. , but the Alabama
boys were not permitted to get gay
with the willow with men on bases.
It was three up and down for both
teams until the first half of the third,
when Harris, first up. bit safely to
center. Benn hit a hot one to the
pitcher who flagged it, but made a bad
throw to second, Harris landing safe
and Benn talcing first. Both runners
moved up a peg when Iong laid down
a bunt, which the pitcher hurled to
third, but too late to force Harris.
"With the bases choked Hamilton hit
to center and was out. the runners
remaining on the bags. Miller worked
Wylie for four wide ones and Harris
was forced in with what proved to be
the winning run, as Berger hit to sec
end and Benn was caught as he was
crossing the plate and G-udger popped
out to third.
Both pitchers worked hard and were
steady for the remainder of the game,
and in only one other did the Snappers
threaten. Txmg was passed to first
and purloined second. Miller then hit
for two bases, but "Long was caught
at the plate and Miller was left strand
ed on second when the succeeding
batsmen went out.

TO BE FORMED
SUCH CONCLUSION WAS REACH
ED LAST NIGHT AT MEETING
OF JUNIOR BASEBALL COMMIT
TEEEXHIBITION GAME SATUR
At a meeting of the junior baseball
committee last night it was decided
to organize two leagues of different
age limits. On of larger boys, ages
from 14 to 16, and a smaller boys'
league of all boys under fourteen years
of age. This decision was reached
after thorough threshing out, and this
is the only possible plan by which, a
one-sided race can be avoided.
All managers of teams in
league must organise and sign up
their teams right away and turn in
the signatures by Thursday, May 15,
to Albert Laney, care Y. M. C. A.
As stated before, an older boy will
be behind each team to see that it Is
a thorough success.
From all appearances this proposi
tion bids fair to be a great success,
and if the efforts of those interested
will mean anything, this will undoubt
edly prove true.
An exhibition game will be, played
next Saturday between two of the first
organized teams, and soon after the
league rroper will begin.

The New Orleans Pelicans appear to
have a star hurler in young Rube Ev
ans, a southpaw. He has stood big
league players on their heads in exhi
bition games this spring. Last year,
Pitching for Dallas, he won 22 and lost
12 games. He fanned 194 batters,
passed 69 and allowed but 227 hits.
Larry Lajole, veteran second base
man of the Cleveland Naps and one
of the most feared batters in the
American league, has set out to be a
base-stealer this ' season. He has
calmly told his teammate, Joe Jack
son, one of the best base runners in
the league, that he Intends to beat him
swiping sacks. Joe stole 35 last
year; Larry, 18.
Jess Willard. the Kansas cowboy
and white hope, tallest heavyweight In
captivity, is on the Pacific coast look
ing for matches. He says he prefers
Luther McCarty, but bars nobody.
Jess isn't so persnickity as some fight
ers who might be mentioned as more
anxious to dodge matches than make
them He Is about to take Tom Jones
as manager instead of Charlie Cutler,
who has not been getting Jess the
matches he wanted.
A high-priced flinger of absolute de
pendability is said to be necessary to
keep the New York Yankees from un
interrupted occupation of last place in
the American league this season.
John Paul Jones, holder of the
American amateur record of 4:13 2-5
for the mile, probably will meet Abe
Kiviat, his greatest rival at the dis
tance, this spring. Kiviat finished
ahead of Jones in th Olympic games
last year and has been showing bet
ter form this spring. The two prob
ably will settle matters in the A. A. U.
