TENNIS GOLF TRACK CRUMBLING OF DEFENSE HELD AS CAUSE OF HIGHLANDERS’DEFEAT (Rv Egbert T.usk.l The ITighlnnderV defense onimhled' in the fourth, sixth nml eighth inn ings of Saturday's same for ions enough time to enable the visitors from Jacksonville to onme in on the long end of a five to four seore. “Red" , Craig deserved to win. pitching the kind of bail it takes to win. and he would have but for the ragged sup-i port given him by the infield, flilson and Stewart being the chief offend ers. Manager Stovall, of the Indians, started Sweetland. a sonthnaw. who clung to the ship until the beginning of the eighth inning, when with a one run lead Stovall decided that lie bad best make preparations to win a ball game, so he chased Sweetland and sent in Claude Franks, an elongated "regular” pitcher who proceeded to justify "Smiling George’s judgment, the Highlanders being unable to do anything with his underhand delivery. Craig got by the first three frames in apple pie order, onlv to fall the victim to the ragged work of his in field in the fourth. Shannon grounded out to Stewart as a starter. Thomas hit to Gilson who loafed on the ball and on a close play at first it was scored as a hit. It looked like an out to the gang on the roof but Clark, who was calling them on the bases, said it was safe, and safe it was. Moile whiffed at the three of Craig's hooks and took a th ink of water. Nie liaus hit to Gilson who fumbled, re covered and then threw wide to Stew art at third base. Thomas counting. Lenoir made it three down when lie hit to Kowalski. Craig retired the In dians in order in the fifth onlv to get in trouble in the sixth. Dovie pried the inning open with a single to cen ter. “Red" then bounced one off of Shannon's slats and two were on with none down. Thomas moved them up a peg with a sacrifice to the box. Moile counted Doyle when lie hit to Gilson at short, the play being made at first base. Niehaus grounded to Gilson who booted the ball and Shannon checked in at the home station. Nie haus ended the inning when he elect ed to try out Smith's arm. Kowalski making the play at second. Craig tightened up m the seventh and the visitors went out in one, two and three order. The relief was only temporary, however, as the real dam age was done in the eighth inning when a brace of counters was shoved over by the visitors, giving them a one-run lead and a baseball game. O’Day flew out to Jordan in left, who made a pretty running catch of the fly, for a starter. Pete Doyle uncorked his third hit of the afternoon, a short fly to left center. Shannon put his in the same territory and Pete took third. Thomas scored him a moment later with a base blow to the same part of the field. Something happened to the defensive system of the High landers at this stage of the game for Stewart let Gladu’s peg to head off Shannon get away from him and the flashy short fielder of the Indians counted. Thomas had been legging it around on the miscue and held up at third. Thomas got venturesome and was in the middle of a chase in a min ute, the put-out going to Craig. "Red” must have tagged the young men where he lived, for no sooner was the out registered than Thomas took a crack at “Red’s” jaw. The swing was wild and no damage was done. The players separated the belligerents and the game proceeded, Moile making it three down when he skied out to Jor dan in left.

BASEBALL VETS PAY TRIBUTE TO LATE POP ANSON New York, April 17.—" Pop" An son's death in Chicago has caused baseball veterans here to turn back the pages of time to the years when a major baseball club was like a crowd of mischievous boys who spent their time on and off the field, teas ing a good-natured task master. Anson’s demise also brought to light the fact that Commissioner Ken esaw M. Landis was preparing to create some position in his retinue for the "daddy of baseball," and that he had discussed the proposal with Manager John J. McGraw of the New York Nationals during the training season in the South. In revealing this information. Man ager McGraw told how Anson had de clined offers of leagues and clubs to designate a day to celebrate him and to fill his empty purse with the gate receipts, for many unfortunate ven tures had swallowed the funds the veteran accumulated in his prime. "He was too proud to accept it,” Mc- Graw explained. Anson made his players work hard, ; and especially diligently during the training season, Bill Dahlen recounted ! today. After one day’s hard prac tice, Anson, a powerful and rugged man, ordered his men to follow him 1 on a run around the Held. "He led us 1 around about six times until someone noticed a board off the fence," said Dahlen. "First a couple dropped out; the next time two more until finally An son was running all alone and none the wiser. When he became tired he i stopped and turned around and came to the hotel. He thought it was a good joke, but he was niad.” “Everybody on the team liked An son," said Dahlen. "Maybe that’s why wo teased him so much. He’d get mad and wouldn’t speak for several days, and then he'd come around and invite the culprits over to hts home for Sunday dinner, or pass it off in seme equally good way. He didn’t go around with the crowd much; he was married and had a home in Chicago and liked to be in it.’ l Anson was responsible for the en try of Chirles Murphey and Charles P. Taft into the baseball business, McGraw recalled. To finance a bil liard academy when he quit the game Anson borrowed $40,000 from Mur phy and Taft, Taft using his stock in' the Chicago club as security. When Anson's venture failed, Murphy and Taft used the $40,000 stock as an en terrng wedge.

Tampa : which at the end of the first week ; was the runner-up, dropped to fourtli i place by virtue of the loss of four of its six games. Lakeland, with four ; victories and two defeats moved from : fourtli to second place while) Day ; tot’.a, which broke even, had the | third notch. There was no change in the stand ing of Jacksonville and Orlando, the former losing four of its games and Orlando breaking even. The weeks games developed that the league either has one of the lar gest aggregations of heavy hitters I rounded up in a minor circuit in many ; years or that the pitchers largely are of the sand lot. calibre. The six clubs pounded out a to tal of 35S hits during the week for 263 runs and of these Orlando was responsible for 78 hits and 63 runs, and St. Petersburg 77 hits and 58 runs. The heavy hitting of the Saints was a feature. Monday they crash !ed out eleven bingles. Tuesday they i registered 16, including one home run. one triple and three doubles. Wednesday they were credited with only seven hits but Thursday they got sixteen again and Friday capped the list with 20. Orlando pitchers broke up the slugfest Saturday hold ing htem to seven safeties. Outstanding features were the 12 inning game Monday between Day tona and Lakeland which Daytona won by a score of Bto 7. Cusack, the Daytona pitcher was able to fan l only one Lakeland batter during the j contest. Daytona hammered Lake ! land pitchers for one home run, three SOUTH ATLANTIC OPENS TOOAY I Greenville, S.

The Tampa-Daytona game at Tam pa Friday was a hard one for the Is landers to lose.
