Tiie appearance of the White Sox goofs in Moline yesterday provided a half-holiday for Jack Tighe's aspiring Islanders, and while there were a few -cold weath er birds among them, who braved the wintry wind to watch the pas time, themajority of the athletes clung close to the steam in the hotel lobby. But this morning they were out with grealer pep than ever, prob ably due to the change tp a milder temperature. And the boys are de termined, too, to fit themselves in the best possible condition to re deem the defeat at the bands of Moline last Sunday.

This is another good reason why the Islanders should annex the Sabbath encoun ter. Pitcher Fred Thompson, secured from Mike Kelly of the St. Paul club, has arrived and will be ready to work on the monnd. This is an other reason why Moline should be let down from its cocky perch-.

The following assignment of um pires for the opening games Wed nesday were announced: Evans and Hildebrand, at Cleve land. , Owens and Chill, at Chicago. Connolly and Moriarity, at Bos ton.

"Cnrley" Anderson, the wrestling game In the tri-citiea is evidently due to be revived with a boom, Judging by the quality of a match "Curley" has arranged for the night of April 30 at Moline Tomer haiL No less a personage in the grappling world than Johnny Mey ers will mingle in a finish affair with one Bobby Bylund, pride ot Moline. The follower of sports knows that Johnny Meyers is the accred ited world's champion middle weight wrestler. In Chicago he is capable of drawing enormous crowds through the doors to see him work against the other high- class middleweight wrestlers that abound in and around the big city. Several weeks ago Meyers lost a one-fall match to John Kilonis and now the pair is scheduled to meet again tomorrow night in Chicago. Sporting authorities ot the Windy City expect the proceeds of the match to approach tbe fZU.OOO mark. In securing Meyers for a bout in Moline with Bobby Bylund, "Cur ley" is only bearing out his reputa tion as a go-getter. Bylund is in the select circle of middleweight wrestlers. He rroved this. the oth er night at El Paso. Texas,- when he won from Chris Jordan. Chris Jordan has been listed by experts as practically on a par with Mey ers. THREE-EYE NEWS JIORE COLD AT PEORIA. Peoria, April 13. The weather guy evidently has not received his annual pass for games piayea at Lake View park. He again broke out in all his fury yesterday, and sent a blizzard sweeping Peoria which halted all drills of the Tractors. Manager Jackson may decide to stage a short indoor workout at Bradley gym late today. Another new pitcher came into camp today. Dan Linder is the lad's name and he hails from Wa terloo, Iowa. Catcher . Roth and InfieWer McLaughlin, purchased from tbe: St. Louis Cards late last week, were also expected in on an afternoon train from the Mound City. Manager Jackson will point his rehearsals this week to the exhibi tion games carded next Saturday and Sunday with the Staley's from that city. . EVANSVILLE PLATTERS REPORT Evansville, Ind., April 13. Ten Evans have reported to Manager Groh, and Bosse Field is slowly taking on the appearance of a training camp when the Black Sox gather there for their daily work out, Burlingame, outfielder, and Kendith, infielder, -being the latest arrivals of tbe Eva squad. Groh's outfit is badly handicapped by the continued cold weather, but managed to get in two and a half hours of stiff practice yesterday, going through the regular batting session and a period of snappy in field work, although with an in field composed partly of pitchers and catchers, Groh being the only regular in position. The Eva bojjs is snapping them ,over from short in good shape, and shows the ef fects of his early workout with the Brewers. rocksIreport. Rockford, 111.. April 13. Yester day was the day set for the talent engaged by the Rockford club to report for duty and Players Hpgan, Hummell, Glumski, Hauk, Brant, Chapman and Miegan registered at the office of President Ira L.

From now on there will be hard work every day from 11 a. m. to 2:30 p. m. for every man who aspires to wear the Rockford uniform during the campaign o' 1920.

As a -result Barlk Mack's rookies cantured the tilt wtth the aspiring big leaguers by a score of 7 to 1. -The cold appear ed to dampen any ardor the Sox may have put forth. The six er rors checked against them in the box score were glaring ones and resulted in most of the runs count ed by the home team. -he Sox did not' get. a man around to the plate until the ninth Inning, when "Pinky" Tabor poled one to right field, scoring Fickerle. Tabor had been shunted to the out field after four rounds of toil on the mound, during which Moline scorea rour runs off or him, two ot them being earned and the other two being contributed through an error by John Collins. Collins let an easy fly back of first slip through his fingers and then tossed wild to home plate to bead off a second runner from scoring. "Lefty" Sullivan went tbe last four frames for the Sox, and true to his reputation threw wild to first base on every, attempt to nail the runner. on slow ground balls. While Tabor occupied the mound he was apparently under orders to take things easy and he loped some choice ones over for the Plow Boys to swing at.

That Last Prediction. Fortune is a quick shifter. Once again it is proved that the "first' shall be last." From 1909 to 1913, a period of 10 years, Boston and Philadelphia together collected 10 pennants and no less than eight world chain-' pionships! - ' ' The Athletics won premier honors in 1910. 1911 and 1913; the Red ' Sox in 1912, 1915, 1916. 1918; the Braves in 1914. , -. .;. f , These two cities ruled the game for a decade. And now, facing the 1920 campaign, they are listed in a battle tor last place in both leagues! . In the National, last place is booked as a battle between the Braves and Phillies. - : ' In tbe American it looks to be a scrap between tbe .Red Sox and Athletics. ; The game has never known a more amazing shift. For it Is about a certainty that either a Boston or a Philadelphia club will take last place by storm and hold It against all assaulters in both leagues. Sayings ef Great Men.
