Members of the Pittsburgh
National League baseball club
who wish to play golf hereafter
must gain the consent of the
manager before taking to the

George Gibson.
Gibson intimated that certain
players Mere paying more atten

and he attributed the loss of a
game to this cause. "No more

When Fighter Breaks With Lifelong
Director He Is Usually Headed
for Scrap Heap.
Boxers get nowhere without mana

lifelong manager he usually is headed
for tile scrap heap. Young Corbett

his lighting triumphs.
Johnny Kilbane parted ways with
Jimmy iMnui. Kilbane has made little
money since. On the other hand,
Bunny Leonard and his manager, Billy
Gibson, have been pals since Benny
was a kid. They're on top.
Lew Temiler and his boss, Phil
Classman, sold newspapers on the
same corner before they became suc

Morgan took Jack Britton after lie had
wasted seven years of his ring career

but a much-needed asset to any fight

A Chicago baseball critic has paid Catcher lialph Perkins of the Phila
delphia Athletics a great compliment. He says Perkins is the smartest catcher
in the game, "barring Itay Schalk." Heineiuber the critic who admits so much
comes from Chicago, which is Sciialk's habitat. Otherwise he might not insert
that "barring" stuff. Taking critics generally it probably will be found that
quite a number of them would vote Perkins as the best catcher in the Ameri
:?m league when it comes to handling pitchers, youngster though lie is. He
has done wonders with Connie Mack's assortment of twirlers and Mack and
his lieutenants give the catcher his full due of credit for it. Sporting News.

Some Time, Says Bodie.

chased a new glove and used it dur
ing a part of the world's series with
the Giants. In one of the games he
happened to drop a 1'.)' ball of the
kind he usually ate alive.
On his return to the bench Manager
Jake Stab I asked him how he came to
make the error, and Hooper's excuse
was that he had been wearing his new
glove. This was related later at a hotel,
one of the players laughingly saying:
'X. - -í

"Just think of Hooper breaking in a
new mitt in a world's series game."
