Manager Stovall, of the Indians,

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. The ninth brought the
visitors no additional runs, a com

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-
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
"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

Review of The Week
In The State League
1 Orlando, April 17.—The second
weeks play in the Florida State Lea
jgue ending Saturday resulted in sev
eral changes in the standing of the
,six clubs, hut with St. Petersburg,
! which won four of the six games play
ed. still holding first place. 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
