X WOODROW WILSON ONCE A CRACK BALL PLAYER. T "Woodrow Wilson was a fine baselwill player, but too darned wrapped up in reading to come out for practice," said Governor Glenn of North Carolina, talking about the Democratic presiden tial candidate. "Governor Wilson nnd I were college mates," said Glenn. "Wo studied nnd played together for two years nt Davidson college, North Carolina. Afterward Wil son went to Princeton nnd I went back to tlie plow. "Wilson was too confounded lazy to make a star ball player. When the team would bo called off for practice we'd havo to go to his room and drag him nwny from n book. "But when Wilson wanted to llay hu was a star. Ue played left field, and, while ho had an awkward way of running, ho covered n lot of cround nnd was t tho best pinch hitter on the team." 4H-H-H-H-I-H-I--H-I-H-H-I-H-1-.'H BURNS TO FIGHT AGAIN. Ex-Heavyweight Champion Will Meet Bill Rickard Aug. 8. Ever since tlie first announcement was made that Jack Johnson would retire next fall, Tommy Burns, tho ex-heavyweight champion, has been training quietly but hard with the Intention of again claiming the title when It is laid down by tho negro Tommy never dissipates and lias al ways taken good care of himself. De spite the fact that ho has not had a real ring bout for over a year, he weighs only 103 pounds and can tint the gloves on and go six fast rounds with any one. On Aug. 8, nt Saskatoon, Saskatche wan. Burns will met Bill Blckard, a whlto hope from Vancouver, B. C., in a fifteen round bout Blckard is be lieved to bo a "comer," and ho has lots of backing from tho coast city. A side bet of $1,000 has already been posted, and it is in real, not stage money. Burns Is to get a guarantee of $5,000, win, lose or draw. Tommy looks upon this bout as something In tho nature of a tryout "I have never been out of the ring, as far as that goes," declares Burns, "so I am not trying to 'come back.' I have not had any tough bouts lately, however, and It won't hurt me a hit to tackle this fellow Blckard first." PROMISING MATERIAL SCARCE. Baseball Scouts Say There Are Few Bright Prospects For Next Season. Big league scouts engaged in beating the far sticks report that there is little promising baseball material in sight although this scorns to bo the usual cry at this time of year. They also say that tho minor ioaguo owners want too much for what few prospects there are. Tho amount reputed to liavo been paid for Marty OT00I0 and various other players last season has Inflated tho ideas of tho small owners, and they de cline to talk anything but young for tunes at this season of tho-year. For instance, Kansas City of tlw American association baa a shortstop modestly priced at $13,000. Ho is "Bed" Corridcn, who was once in the big show with St Lou Vi. In 137 games with Kansas City last eeflfxm Oorriden hit .317 and stole 17 bases. They say ho has improved elnco. then, no must havo if Iki Is valued at 1A000.
