Third Baseman, Boston Red Sox. The funniest thing I ever saw on a baseball field was a pitcher Sliding clear past third base and spiking s coacher, and at the same time preventing his team from making what might have been considered a serious error. The play came up in a game between the Red Sox and St. Louis Browns. Patsy Donovan waa our manager at the time and he was coaching at third base. We needed a run, and Bill Bailey was making It bard for us to get It. We had a runer on second base when a long fly was bit to right center. Donovan signalled the runner to come on after the catch and, as the outfielder hauled in the ball the runner sprinted for third, and the center fielder threw to nail him.

Just aa he reached the base line his feet slipped and he fell sliding feet high ln the air straight at Donovan who was too interested la the welfare of the runner to see Bailey. Bailey slid straight Into Donovan, spiked him and brought him down on top of him self. Meanwhile the runner slia to third, the ball took a crooked hop, got past the baseman and I Boys and Girls!

WHITE FAILS TO," WHIP CHAMPION MILWAUKEE, Wis., Feb. 26. —Charlie White fought an uph'll bout with Champion Freddie Welsh last night In Milwaukee, losing the 10-round no decision bout, according to the verdict of spectators and newspaper men, by a wide margin. It was a fast battle. White started with a rush, and had an advantage ln the first and second rounds. Then Welsh began bor- SOX AND YANKEES WILL MAKE SHOWING, SAYS FAN NEW YORK. Feb. 26—"Watch the White Sox and the Yanks this season; next October Is going to find them a whole lot nearer the top than did last October. May be one of them will win the pen nant." This was the warning given at a recent league meeting here by a veteran manager who has seen seasons come and go—many more than he cares to admit. "For why?" he echoed. "Just this—the Sox are due to make things hot for the winner because they have all the requisites of a darned good team; and the Yanks JACK CURLEY IS BUSY MAN BL PASO, Feb. 26—Jack Cur ley, promoter of the Jack John son-Jess Willard championship fight, is in a mess of trouble. Johnson is ln Havana, and can't come to Mexico because of the or ders of General Carranza. tie can't come to the United States because of the indictments against him.

CLUB STARTS TROUBLE IN FEDS CHICAGO, Feb. 26.—And now the Insides ot the Federal league will probably be displayed-to the fans. Last night dlssentlon broke out In the Feds when the Kansas City club filed an Injunction on Presi dent Otlmore against the propos ed transfer of the club's franchise to P. T. Powers of New York.

The hearing will be March 5- THE TAOOMA Ing ln, and for five rounds a the 3rd to 7th, Inclusive—he gave White a terrible drubbing. White's eyes puffed, his face was swollen, and he plainly showed the punishment that he was re ceiving. In the eighth round White shaded Welsh, and the last two rounds were even. Both men rushed throughout, but neither seemed particularly anxious to land a knock-out blow. because they are in the Braves' class —not conceded much of a chance at the start of the season —and have a rlp-snortln' mana ger ln BUI Donovan who will get more work out of his men tha i any man ln the business with the exception of George Stslllngs. "Those White Sox have a real team now that Eddie Collins Is playing second bag. He's a whole team ln himself, for that matter. Collins is going to cover a multi tude of sins with his batting and base running. And he's going to steady this big, heavy-hlttln' Frenchman, Fournler, at first, too." And What In Return?

This man Is a cener fielder. He once stole 100 bases or more in one season aad ln one other year he butted better than .825. He always catches them with Ids hands turned up and held close to Ids breast. His catches while sliding forward may help yon recall him to mind. He always was what is know as a "dead right field hitter," although his averages show him one of the best that ever played In the game. He probably has more friends than any man who ever played baseball, not excepting Kelly. CAN YOU NAME HIMT First prize for the best answers to all nine puzzles is a sea son ticket to Athletic park.
