RED'S CITY TOURNEY WINNERS THREE MAKE DEMPSEY OFFERS Brock, Cashions, Catchers, Arrive at Niehoff's Camp; Light Training Work Done the right field fence, scoring twfr men ahead of him.

When the Petrels open the season with Dartmouth March oil, they will likely be minus the services of -lav Partridge at second base. The Petrel star has not attended practice for two weeks and it is reported that illness will keep him out for at lca-t two more weeks. This leaves two places on the infield to be filled. Tbe keystone combination of Wall and Partridge was one of the bright lights in the Petrels play last year, and if the latter fails to get into shape his services will he greatly missed. Just now a lad named f'hestntitt, brother of Freshman Coach Homer Harris decided year before last not to take any chances on the condition of the "bis gun" by using him in exhibition games.

The irrepressible antics of Nick Altrock, Washington's inimitable clown, received a good hand Irom the crowd as did those of his running mate. Al Schacht. Altrpck's slow motion picture act and Sehacht's band-leading role kept the crowd roaring laughter just befora the game started. The Senators started a bombardment in the first inning that was good for four runs, enough to win the game handily. Earl McXeely.

whose timely hit in the final series struggle, was instrumental in winning the crown the Senator.i now wear, started today's game with a clean triple. "Uurky" Harris, r-reived a big hand when he came up as second hitter ami was safe when 1'inrdli. at third threw wild to first. A fusillade of base hits followed and the gam was won right Quick. McNcely Fielding Star.

McNcely was also the fielding star of the game, snagging six haru chances without bobble. In addition to his triple to start the game, he got two more singles out of four times up. I In be Biessler, who hurled stellar ball for Atlanta back in 1017. played first bae for the Cincinnati cluo this afternoon. When Rube joined the Reds it seems that he could noi stand the pace as a pitcher but was a.

good hitter and was shifted to the outfield and later to first base, where he remained and made good. Relative to little Nelson Leach, who is trying out with the Crackers as a seeond baseman. Niehoff todav "If Iearh proves to be a better second baseman than I. then ho will get the job and I will manage from the bench." "One thing is certain, we will a versatile team this year. Murphy can play first base, third base, or the outfield.

I can play second or third and Ked Smith is no sloueh in the outfield if injuries invade our camp this year. "In case Gazella is retained as utility man he can play second or third if mishaps hit the infield. At any rate, we won't be caught out this time." pl New York, March 12. Three New York boxing promoters entered the arena today in a contest for what is expected to prove the greatest bout, from a financial standpoint, in the history of pugilism. Jimmy DeForest, recently appointed match-maker at the Poio Grounds, made the largest offer in in a telegram to Jack Kearns.

manager of the heavyweight champion. Jack Dempscy. DeForest said that he had proposed larger remuneration than Dempsey ever had received for a bout. But credit for the first shot In this battle poes to Charles S. Henderson, of Broklyn, sponsor of a new stadium to seat 110,000 in Long Island City.

Henderson proposes to place in Kearns hands Monday a certified check for $500-000 guaranteeing that the proposed bout between Dempsey and Harry Wills, negro heavyweight, under his direction in September will not be subjected to political interference. Tex Rickard. ruler of the Yankee stadium and Boyle's Thirty Acres in Xew Jersey, was on trial in Trenton, X. court today but found time to remark that he would have a proposition for Keans when the champion's manager arrives In the east on Sunday. He said he always had been able to land a titular bout where one was in prospect and that he would be able to do it again, Albuquerque, X.

March 12. Negotiations are under way for a championship bout in June between Jack Dempsey and Martin Burke. New Orleans heavyweight. Jack Kearns, the champion's manager, said here today while en route to New York. Kearns said that Dempsey probably will fight three or four times next summer.

He named as prospective opponents Wills. Gibbons, Renault, Bob Roper and Burke. He declared Dempsey has settled down since his marriage, is training regularly and is in condition to take on any opponent on 30 days' notice. PURPLE MEETS MARIST FISHMEN BY KEITH. The Prep league swimming champs have a big test tonight when the Turple aquatic stars meet the formidable Marist fishmen in a dual meet at the pool.

The meet is slated to begin at o'clock, and all indications point to a splendid exhibition of speed and ability. Boys' High has -in edge the dope and is expected to win, but the Marist swimmers are certain to extend the Hurricane men to the limit. Both teams have been prae. ticing for about a month, and both squads have been seasDned by a meet or two. In two or three events the out-come is practically a foregone conclusion, but several races are going to be as hotly contested as only sprints in the water can be.

The fancy dive should prove to le particularly interesting, three of the league's best in Ford, Johnston and Funkhouser, of Boys' High, going up against the league's c'jim-pion of two years' standing. Smith, cadet captain. Andrews, of has yet to lose a start in the iiack stroke, and the Purple entry. Vung, will have a real job winning over this speed star. CHANGES MADE IN FORT CARD Although changes have been made in the bouts to be staged at Fori McPherson Tuesday night under the auspices of the Twenty-second Infantry Athletic association, the Walloping Wop and Earl McFadden, of Fort Penning, are still cast in the role of opponents in the 10-round main fvent, according to announcement from Major 1 1.

J. Kceley yesterday. McFadden is one of the best pugilistic products at Fort Penning, according to the major, nnd is fully-capable of giving the Wop a real fight. The latter, in his last ap-rca ranee at' the fort a couple of weeks ago, slammed Sailor Vinson, of Atlanta, to th" resin for the count. This happened in the second round ot the match and left the fans full of admiration fo the Wop.

Tickets lo i ac on sale in Atlanta Monday. A cial section will be reserved for Atlanta fans and the top price is set at $2 per seat.

BY B. II. VINCENT After three weeks of training tbe Petrels burst forth with numerous brands of baseball yesterday when the varsity met the freshmen in the first nine inning contest of the training period. The contest ended with the freshmen on the suially end vf a to 3 score. Ross Kempt, captain of the 1923 Petrel nine, who is sometimes referred to as "old folks" around the Petrel campus, can still clout a baseball about as well as any of the oU odd candidates who take their daily workouts on Hermance field.

Kemp seems to have a better batting eye than in the past three sea sons he has been a member of the Petrel nine. In the game against the freshmen lie drove out three safeties in as many attempts, two of them being long drives against the left field fence. His three safeties were half the lot garnered by the varsity off the deliveries of the two freshman, pitchers, York and Ruchan-n a u. Duke Terrell, who, with Lefty Lindsey, is putting up a merry battle for the berth at first base, accounted for three runs when he drove one of Rurhnnnan's offerings over PLANT AGREES TO LONG WALK New York, March 12. Willie Plant, America's best exponent of the grotesque heel-and-toe stride, has at last hearkened to the shrill jabber of Ugo Frigerio, the Olympic walking champion, for a Mice at 10.1KH) meters at which distance Frigerio says he is invincible.

They will perform this episode the Moruingside Eames here on March 2. the incidental music being ftir-nisjied by the snores of the multitude. Plant knocked down all the proud plumes on Ugo's crest when Ugo came here a few weeks ago expecting to outwalk any man in America, or the rest of the world, for that matter, at any distance. Plant has beaten I'go every time they have met but they have not yet strolled over Ugo's favo-rie 10.000 meter distance. If Ugo doesn't beat Plant this time he will go back to Italy on the reverberations of the greatest collapse since Suzanne Lenglen threw her tennis match to Molla Mallory, at Forest Hills.

KELLEY SHOWS WELL FOR BUCKY Washington. Mrch 12. Manager Harris was finding solace in the seeond trimming meted out to the Senators by the Giants at West Talm Reach yesterday in the showing of his two "recruit pitchers, Jim I he newcomer from Wichita, allowed only one hit in his four rounds, and that was a scratch, while Harry Ktlley, granted only two in his two innings, although one of these was timely enough to give the Giants their first ivn in the seventh, which thev duplicated in the twelfth to win out. 2 to 1. The trouble was the Giants offered the same kind of hurling.

Reports from the Tampa enmp say President Griffith is more than warmly interested in a proposition from the West Tam Reach city business interests to move his training quarters to that place next year.

STILL AT IT Charlie Poecrtson BY NOKMAN E. KKOWN. Eddie Collins, preparing; for his premier as big league manager and pilot of the White Sox, is counting on Urban F'aber and Charley Robertson in his scheme of things the coming season.

Collins is satisfied with his outfield with Hooper, Ealk, Mostil, Elsh and Archdeacon, all rarin' to go. His infield lacks a star shortstop, but Harvey McClellan can fill the bill again of "Pie" Davis, Wojack, Cartozzo and Bill Barrett all fail to impress the Sox pilot. Ray Schalk is counted on to catch at least half the games and Clyde Crouse seems ready to relieve him capaoly. And if the veteran red-headed Faber will do a comeback and youns? Charley Robertson finds himself after his off year Deacon Eddie will be sitting pretty, he feels sure. Last year Hollister Thurston, castoff.

was Johnny Evers' best pitcher. Turned in 20 victories and lost but 14 games for the fourth placers. Ted Lyons was the only other pitcher to work in more, than 10 full games. He won 12 games and lost one less. Faber Wins lint The veteran Faber turned in nine victories, but was ricked 11 times.

Robertson won but four and lost 10. Connally worked In 44 games, but won only seven and lost 13. Blank-enship won seven and lost six. Leverette and Cvengros each contributed two or three victories and Mangum but one. Faber suffered from a splintered ejbow bone.

Robertson failed to hit Iris old time form. In 1923 Faber won 14 and lost 11 games for the disorganized Sox. Robertson won 13 and lost 10. Robertson's work last season was especially disappointing. His no-hit game, pitched against the Tigers at Detroit April 20, 1922.

had drawn the attention of the baseball world to him. Just 27 man-eating Tigers had faced him only to find themselves eating In harmless kitty fashion from his hand. Of course, critics realized that the game would not make him that he was a youngster and had much tD learn. But the stuff he displayed that day raised the hopes of the Sox rooters to a high pitch. He won 14 games for the Sox that season and lost la.

The Sox finished fifth with exactly a .500 average. Robertson got away to a bad start the following season. This too. was not taken seriously. Scores of young pitchers have taken a year or two to find themselves after showing flashes hrilliancy at the start.

Last year, however, much was expected of Robertson. Faler has already reported that his arm is o. apparently, thanks to the removal of the bone splinter. Robertson has said that he intends to knuckle down and deliver this i season. If these two come through and Collinss gets stair results from the others and a repetition of his good work from Thurston the Sox will have a neat pitching staff.

That's what Collins needs most. "CREPE MYRTLE DAY" SUCCESS AT DECATUR Decatur, March 12 (Special.) "Crepe myrtle" day here succeeded beyond all expectations.
