Swede Risberg. the White Sox shortstop, has concluded to be a holdout no longer, according to word from San Francisco last evening. Secre tary Harry Grabiner of the Sox has a message saying he will join the club in Dallas Sunday. His con tract has this year to run, but dur ing the winter he announced he would quit baseball to run a res taurant in Frisco. Spencer Heath, who hails from Chicago, showed Manager Gleason something today when the Sox beat Baylor university, 14 to 0. The boss had been watching the tall young man since training started, but was surprised at the way he worked. He . pitched five, innings, allowing two bits and no runs. The main thing about Heath's performance was the ease with which he pitched. He scampered about and fielded his position clev erly, backed up the bases and cracked out a pair of hits. He also drew a base on balls and scored two runs. The one-sided game itself was not much of a contest, but it fur nished the Sox with good batting and running practice. Hap Felsch hit a homer over the long left field fence and a triple to center. He also got a single. Ed Collins drove a two-bagger off the right field wall, the ball being a couple feet short of a circuit clout. . Eddie Cicotte turned up sick yes terday. He remained in his room and is threatened with tonsillitis. There is nothing to worry about, but he will be set back a few days In his training. Score: WHITE SOX R. H. P. A.

New York-, March 25. -John A. Heydler, president of the National league, last night challenged Lee Magee, former Cincinnati and Chi cago National league player, to ex plode his "biggest bomb in base ball history." Magee announced in Cincinnati he would give out charges on which the National league bases its ac tion in barring him from its cir cuit He added he would "show up some people for tricks turned ever since 1906." In a letter to Robert S. Alcorn of Cincinnati, Magee's attorney, Mr. Heydler said no further attention would be paid the subject unless Magee "produces evidence impli cating others with him, or show ing them to be guilty of wrongdo ing in which he took no part." "No charges are pending in this office by, or against Lee Magee," the letter said. Heydler said the league reserves the right to say "we do not want you" to any player who falls short of the high standard of sportsmanship. CARPENTTER WILL BOX YALE CHAMP srt New York, March 25. Georges! Carpentier, heavyweight boxing champion of Europe, will meet Ed die Eagan, champion of the Yale university boxing team, and former middleweight champion of the American Expeditionary Forces in a formal 4-round exhibition bout, here tonight. The match will be staged at a dinner given in honor of the French pugilist by the In ternational Sporting club of Now York.- 1, Larry Doyle. Larry Doyle, veteran inflelder, announces that he found, last win ter, the foundation of youth for which Ponce de Leon and about ninety million other birds sought in vain. Said spring was in Cuba, he avers, and he states that, as a result of a winter on the sunny is land he is set to play second base for the Giants as he played at his best, before age began to slow him up a bit Before Doyle reported to the Giants this spring McGraw had about made up his mind that he would have to develop a youngster for the second sack, but now he means to start Doyle at the posi tion and give him a chance to dem onstrate the dope that he is "10 years younger." Doyle was born in Caseyville, 111-, which may have been named after the guy that struck out Larry is 34 now and has been in baseball since 1905, when he started out with Mattoon in the Eastern Illi nois league. He Joined Springfield in the Three-Eye league in 1907 and was sold in June, that year, to the Giants for the reported price of $4,500. He became the Giants' regular second sacker the next sea son and starred through the follow ing campaigns until traded to Chi cago on Aug. 28, 1916, with Hunter and Jacbbson for Zimmermaft. His usefulness with the Cubs was shortlived as he sustained a broken leg in a game Sept 9. He was with the Cubs the following sea son, but on Jan. 4, 1918, was traded with Wilson and $15,000- cash for Pitcher Lefty Tyler of the Braves. DEMPSEY WILL DICTATE TERMS IF EXONERATED First Promoter to Sign Champion Will Enjoy the Big Pugilis " tie Plum. New York, March 25. The pro posed Dempsey - Carpentier fight charges on Walloping Jack. If he 6 scared of draft charges ' Dempsey will hold the key to the fight situ ation. The first promoter who signs the world's- champion will stage the title battle. Carpentier, who arrived here yes terday from France, has already put his John Hancock to contracts with Charles Cochran, William Fox. Billy Gibson, and Dommick Tortorich of New Orleans. These are merely options. Each one con tains a clause that the first promo ter who corrals Dempsey can sign Caroentier. Georges got a substantial sum for signing each option, neat evi dence of considerable shrewdness in the Frenchman's camp. Carpentier insists on a 60-40 split of the purse. He's quite sausnea to gamble on the winner's end and doesn't want a guaranteed figure. Any time and place selected by the successful promoter is agree able to the French champion. La bor day was considered a favorable date, but these details can be work ed out later. If necessary Georges will re main in the United States until his melee with Jack Dempsey, but it is a cinch the Frenchman won t perform in any preliminary bouts with Willie Meehan, Battling Le vinsky, or other ambitious challengers.

Birmingham, Ala., March 25. Expecting to find a badly wrecked ball team, one is somewhat sur prised upon coming to Birmingham, tha training camp ot the Phillies, and discovering that Gawy Cra vath not only has assembled quite a formidable outfit, but has things humming briskly and harmonious ly. The Phillies may not look like prospective champions, but they aren't a joke. "Better than I expected," said the famous slugger manager, when asked how things looked. "I was a bit scared about . our chances to make much of a showing until I got tnis gang down here on the field, but now I think I really may have a team that will surprise a few people this summer." The situation on tha Phillies is just this: It Is a pretty fair hitting ball club, one that can produce enough runs to win a lot of games provid ing the defense is good. Th club boasts a set of infteld ers and outfielders capable of doing good defensive work. Cravath has a pitching staff that is doubtful, but at the same time one which has four or five men of experience who might happen to have a good year. ( ruTatli Making Good. That Manager Cravath is making good as a leader seems quite evi dent He realized at once that only good pitching could make his club look like it belonged in the majors, so he went after that end ot the game right from the start He hired Jess Tannehill, old time southpaw pitcher, who in his day was r'ated one of the wisest of slab artists. Cravath simply turned the pitch ing staff over to Jess and told him to get busy with it And Jess has been busy. He's going into the de tails and rudiments of pitching. He takes a squad of three and works sometimes an hour or two with them and a catcher on nothing but signs. Drills Trick Stuff. Tannehill shows them the tricks of catching runners off the bags and holding runners close to the bags. He teaches them balk mo tions that are just within the law. It looks as if Cravath will find im provement in his veterans and un expected ability in his youngsters when they begin the season. Only nine pitchers are on the squad, so most of them have good chances to stick, as seven or eight ! will be carried. Of the right band ers, Carl Meadows, the bespectacled curve ball artist once with the Cardinals, is going in classy fash ion. Carl was fooling with spitters and shiners and emery balls tor a while and apparently lost some of his effectiveness. Now he's devot ing all his energy to the curves and a change of pace and looks good. Daily Calendar of Sports Racing; Winter mewtinr nt rnh&.Ararl- can Jockey club, at Havana. Basketball.

"Carpentier," runs one comment, "could never last against a rug- . ged opponent such as Dempsey or Fulton is." Another one ot those! things which look to be plausible, but remain to be proved. "Punch" suggests that if Dempsey won't come to London to fight Carpentier, Messrs. Rickard or Cochran might move London to Demp sey for the fight. Why not? By allotting London a 15-week vaude ville engagement in America all expenses could be assured. I'n ravelin? tlie Tangle. Once in a while the old-fashioned coincidence still reports for duty. A day or two ago we received this letter: "Won't you please get a definite statement from Walter Camp covering the rule changes that govern 'clipping from behind' and 'protecting the forward pass er?'" About thirty-five minutes later we met Mr. Camp on the street for the first time in nearly four months. "Clipping from behind," he said, "only refers to clipping down a man who is ostensibly out of the -play. It would not afTect diving into a runner from behind for the purpose of legitimate interference. If an end is going down the field to tackle a punt receiver, there will b'i no penalty for diving into this end and putting him out ot the play, no matter whether you dive at his heeis or his toes. "The rule that is supposed to protect the forward paserhas heen wrongly interpreted by many. It will not prevent atjy tackier from diving at or tackling a forward passer while he still holds the ball. or while he is in the act of getting rid of the ball. It Is merely a pro tection for the passer after he has completed the play and is, there fore, out of it. After he ha3 passed the ball to his receiver down the field -there is no sense then in knocking him down or tackling him. "Briefly, these two regulations were put in to break up unneces sary roughness, not to weaken either the attack or the defense." Ninety per cent of the crookedness and trouble In boxing comes from the managers. Suppose Jack Dempsey had been managed by a sportsman or a far-thinking adviser in place of Jack Kearns?

' 'Ci ' : There are five cities from this nation's roster that crry two ma jor league ball clubs. These five, in a pennant way, enjoy what is known as the Double Grab. Which is to say, they have two shots at a pennant where the other six major towns have only one. The word "enjoy," however, applies to only four of the five cit ies. You may get the idea in bulk from the pennant achievements of the five towns in the last 20 years. Chicago nine pennants. Philadelphia seven pennants. Boston seven pennants. New York six pennants. St. Louis six pennants. . . "White Sox as a club demanded big raise over last seuon."
