MACKMEN BANG GENEWICH IN SECOND, SWAMP TRI Four Runs in Bunch Make Victory Easy, 9 to 3 Moore and Thomas Line Out Round Trip Smashes By JAMES C. O LEARY FORT MYERS, Fla, March 21 The Craves were beaten by the Athletics tl.s afternoon, 9 to 3. Five hits by the Athletics in the second innir.g, against Joe Genewich, which were good for four runs, were erough to win the game. Bancrofts dt n could do little against the offerings of Lefty" Grove, who worked eight innings. Of the fix hits made by the Braves., two were home runs one by Eddie Moore in the fourth and the other by Herbert Thomas with a runner on first In the fifth. The other bingles registered against Crete were a double by Thomas in the first inning, a single by Ge-newnch In the fifth, a single by Andy High In tho sixth and one by Arthur Mills In the seventh. Dave 1 tan-croft retu-ed in the third, being succeeded by High. Taylor Hurt by Foul Tip Zach Taylor was slightly Injured by a foul tip, but played the game out. Ty Cobb did not play this afternoon and has made good on the statement that he would not play again in a game in which Frank Wilson was umpire. Cobb says he does not wish to take a chance of another clash with Whitson and the possibility of a repetu.on of what happened In St Petersburg. It was apparent at the beginning that Genewich was not in good form, as French, the first batter to face him. singled. In the second inning after two were out Br&nora, Boley, Cochrane. Grove and French hit singles, although that of Grove was something of a scratch, a Texas leaguer to center, which but for some confusion between Bancroft and Mann should have been caught. Thg bouquet of bingles were, however, good for four runs. The As made another in the fourth on a base on balls to Branom. who went to third on a single by Boley and cored on a sacrifice fly by Cochrane. In the sixth against the pitching ot Mills they made two more on a iou'cla by Branom and a home run by Boiev. "Two more runs came in the seventh on a base on balls to Dykes, a double to right center by Simmons, followed by poor return of the ball by Mann and a single by Wheat.

Fla, March 21-While most of the Braves journeyed to Fort Myers today to meet the Athletics, a squad composed of Foster Edwards, Harold Goldsmith, Bill Thege, Charley Welsh, Ellis Taylor and Herman Holshouser, worked out under Arthur Devlin. The New York Yankees defeated the Reds here today, 2 to 1. Babe Ruth finally got a hit, the first of the Spring season. Eabe connected with one of Eppa Rixeys fast ones for a real bingle. Arthur Nehf showed remarkable skill on the mound that hints at a comeback for the little lefthander. Nehf stopped a wallop of Waite Hoyt with his leg and had to retire from the game, after pitching two and one-third innings. Bob Meusel dumped the ball over the left-field fence in the sixth for the first run of the game. The Reds tied it up in the seventh on a single by Pittenger and another by Rixey. Wera, after singling, scored on Bursts sacrifice fly with the big run in ! the ninth. N. U. BASEBALL SQUAD OF 70 TO FEEL AX TODAY Northeastern baseball candidates had a layoff yesterday on account of the rain, but will report at Huntington Field this afternoon. Coach Rufe Bond will cut his squad of 70 in half after today. The axe was expected to fall Saturday, but one w-eek was not sut-ficient to give Coach Bond a line on all his material. The Huskies have 17 letter men, but of this number Howie Lang and Fob Prowse, pitchers, and Rhs Eldridge and George Marden, infiielders, have not yet reported. Larry Ranney, ex-Bowdoin star, is certain to win an outfield berth. Leo Crowley, ex-St John's twiner, locks good, while Roy R&dcliffe. last years Huntington School captain will get plenty of consideration for an infield berth. Eddie Goodwin, substitute last jear, is making a strong bid for second base. Competition for the catching assignment is keen, with Neil Mahonev, last years catcher; Johnny Meehan, who is also an infielder, and OConnell, a freshman, getting the most attention. GILES AND BAKER BARRED FROM BROCKTON BASEBALL BROCKTON. March 21 Coach Arthur E. Staff of the Brockton High School baseball team will have his candidates out in a few days. After he had issude''the call last week he found that his star catcher and cap-tain. t illiam Giles, had been declared ineligible because of scholastic difficulties. Giles will not be with the team for the first month, at least. The markings also show Red Baker a pitcher, to be ineligible. Despite the fact that Coach Staff will have only two veterans back, Eldon Hallamore, a pitcher, and Phil O'Connell, the football captain and center fielder, he believes he will weld together a formidable nine. Mike Svirsky. the football star, who gave great promise of developing into a fine pitcher, is also lost to the team having injured his arm. O'Conneli was formerly & pitcher and he may be used in the box this year. The season will open April 26. Malden High will play here April 30. GARRIGAH OUTLINES VIEWS TO PLAYERS Lectures Men on Tactics at New Orleans First Rain in Three Weeks Prevents Red Sox Workout By MELVILLE E. WEBB JR NEW ORLEANS, March 21-The Red Sox ball players dream of an'off day finally came true today, the fst rain in three weeks putting baseball out of the question. Few of the boys even left the hotel. However, it waa not altogether an off day. In the morning the players were specially measured for their uniforms by Jack Conway, who insists that the Sox appear in classy regalia in tribute to Bill Carrigans return;' and then Sir William arranged with the hotel management to open a spacious suite of rooms for the first real baseball conference Carrigan has had since he made his opening speech at the Heinemann Park clubhouse shortly after the arrival of his squad. At the meeting Bill insisted that his boys enter into a general discussion of baseball tactics as they will be mapped out by their manager this year. Bill got right down to cases, inviting comment on his views and even argument, but, as he himself expressed it, we have been allowing the players to do things pretty much their way, and now we are telling them how to do it our way. Outlines Theories Clearly Carrigan went over many theories and practices of baseball of which backup plays and cut ins may be mentioned as instances. For the first time really since his return to the game he promulgated many of his ideas, and more than ever impressed on his players that the business of baseball is a serious proposition with him. and that he intend it to be with them. Thus more than an hour and a half managers and players were in session, and the last 10 days in training camp will start tomorrow with the idea of organization and purpose more understood by the Red Sox ball players than it lias been for a long time. It was clearing tonight and a good long strenuous session is planned for tomorrow. The pitchers all will be worked harder and it is Carrigans plan to have more real genuine curving in the batting drills than the mere spinning which he has allowed the box men for the past five or six days. The outfits hitting has been very far from impressive so far, only 37 hits having been made by the club in the 46 innings of ball played against the Pelicans. Jacobson Tops Hitters The high hitter has been Bill Jacobson, with five hits in nine times at bat, Tobin ranking next with three hits in eight times at bat. Hartley and Haney have come next , with three hits in their 10 trips to the plate in the five games already played with the Southern Association cham pions. In the games Carlyle has hit for ! .286. Eggert for .273, Rigney for .250: ! Shaner for .200, Hofmann .167, Roth- . rock .143, Regan .125, Bratche .100, Wanninger has not hit safely in 10 I times at bat, while Todt and Flag-I stead each has failed to hit safely in ! tiie New Orleans games in seven times i at the plate. ! So far Carrigan has had little fault to find with the clubs fielding, but one has not to do very much guessing to judge that there has been little to impress him with either the hitting or the pitching. HARVARD GLASS NINES IN CHARGE OF CHEEK With Dolph Cheek, captain of the Harvard 1925 football team, in charge, plans have been completed for the development of class baseball this Spring similar to class football last Fall. April 1 has been set as the date on which teams will be formed from each of the four classes in Harvard. A league will be organized probably with eight teams entered, the winning nine to meet the championship class team of Yale in New' Haven on May 21. Comparatively little time will be devoted to practice by the Harvard class teams, as a game will be played almost every afternoon. Besides the regular league contests, there will be informal games with freshmali and second teams, and outside preparatory teams. A cup will be awarded to the winning class nine, while the men who play against Yale will receive their numerals, and in the event -of winning over its Blue opponents, the men will receive gold medals. Fred Parent, ex-Red Sox shortstop and coach of the second team, will devote considerable time to these class teams.

Dartmouth Reelects Proctor HANOVER. N H. March 2I-Charles N. Proctor, 28, was relected captain of the Dartmouth Winter sports team todav. Proctor won the Canadian national ski-jumping championship. He won his event at the Dartmouth Winter carnival, besides placing second in the intercollegiates at Montreal and the Claremont carnival. The ttco-basc hit is back again Where brassve shots toill zoom, But what are they to be compared To dogwood trees in, bloom f And what are they to be compared To April's gold and blue. Where all the world is young again And alt your dream s are new An Expensive Stroke On hla way to Atlanta for the Southern open. Wild Bill Mehlhoni waa meditating on the possibility of a dire event. He was thinking of one flubbed mashie shot or one missed putt that might cost him $2250. Of course, it might not, said Wild Bill, and then again, it might. The idea is this. First prize in the Southern open is $4000. Second prize is $1750. There is a difference of $2250 between first and tecond place. And the difference between first and second place is usually Just about one stroke in a field of thi3 rare caliber. This is one championship where the pro field isnt bothering about Bobby Jones. Bobby Jones may win. but he cant cut in on the $4000 prize money for first place or the $12,500 prize money to be distributed to the first ten or so in the list. It would be pleasant to trim Bobby on his home course at 72 holes of medal play, but the main idea is composed of those 4000 shin-ing, glittering iron men. which Hagen, Cruickshank, Armour, Mehlhorn, Farrell, Barnes, Hutchinson, Brady, Turnesa, Aspinosaand most of the headliners will shoot at to say nothing of the other 8500 Iron baublesi left for other prizes. That One Shot Bill Mehlhorn is right. It may not be a trying moment for Wild Bill, but it Bill be for somebody when first or second place hangs on one stroke, as it often does. A six-foot putt that hangs on the lip of the cup may be the difference between $4000 and $1750. And that makes an expensive piece of real estate, that one-tenth of an Inch, which Just holds the ball up and prevents the ensuing cluck-cluck against the bottom of the tin. At $4000 a shot that cluck-cluck, or tinkle is sweeter music than Verdi ever wrote. 'V Concerning What a promoter pays a fighter has always seemed to be largely a business matter between promoter and fighter or boxer or whatever he is. The promoter and the boxer both can usually take care of themselves when it cornea to finances. It also has seemed to be largely the publics business if said public wants to pay a million or more to see such episodes, as may take place. - One of the great modern pastimes is running the other fellow's business or telling the other fellow what he can do and what he cant do. Aint Smaok! right A nd almost to If I don't make My words will Part of the heavyweight problem in the challenging district is well localized or centralized in Boston and another part la scattered wider than the Davis Cup zone. Paulfno, from Spain; Dempsey, from California; and Heeney, from Australia is about as much ground as any single situation can cover. Eventually some one may use an airplane. The Record Range The international hip-hip is covering more of the earth's fairly well known surface this season than it ever covered before. Australia, Spain, California and Massachusetts have entries in the heavyweight eliminations. The British polo team is coming on from India. There are 26 nations in the Davis Cup. Wide, froifl Sweden, is running in America. Tilden is going over to play in France, Spain, Germany and England. Uruguay is sending up a soccer football team for a long tour. So far nothing directly has been heard from the Fiji Islands and Terra Del Fuego, but they may tune in at a moments notice. It is only a question of time before the North and South poles will have sporting carnivals, and in case of a tie they may have the deciding contest pulled off along the equator. (Copyright. 1927. New York Tribune. Inc.) FRENCH STARS WIN QN INDOOR COURTS Borotra and Brugnon in Easy Victories Seligson Defeated, Hunter and Dr King Advance N NEW YORK, March 21 (A. P.) Jean Borotra and Jacques Brugnon, French Davis Cup stars, stroked off straight-set victories in two rounds of national indoor tennis title lay today, while their American opposition was thinning under a gruelling pace. Neither, of the tri-color contenders was pressed. Borotra did not feel called upon to make his customary assaults at the net to turn back a New York veteran, R. E. Roberts, 61, 6 3, and a Japanese foe, Onda, 6 62, while Brugnon won with almost parallel ease on an adjoining court. Putting out youthful Ferdinand Geller of New York in the first round, 60, 6 0, he pushed on under slightly stiffer opposition from P. G. Rockafcllow, ex-Colgate athlete, 7 5, 6 1. Dr George King of New York and Francis T. Hunter of New Rochelle battered their way 'through two rounds. Receiving a second-round default, Dr King eliminated Ernest Kuhn of New Yojpk in the third round, 61, 6 1. Hunter put out M. E. Grossert of New York in love sets before eliminating E S. Baker, also of New York, 60, 6-1 : Contrasting with these easy victories were: 1 defeat of the No. 4 seeded player, Julius Seligson, and hard-fought third round, triumphs by Herbert L. Bowman. ex-New York State champion, Fred Anderson, and Louis B. Dailed Jr. Bowman Lrely escaped a three-set battle with youthful E. F. Jenkins, 6 1, 9 7, while Anderson and Bailey were carried through the longest duels of the day. Joining these victors in the fourth round were Percy Kyras torn of Rockville Center, N Y, Milton Kurzrok of Indianapolis. J. A. M c Hoi tan . Reginald Talmadge and Frank Bonneau of New York and Eddie Jacobs, the Baltfrmore junior. The downfall f Seligson was the days most surprising upset, the junior indoor champion falling before Eugene MeCauliff of Fordham. a youthful Near Ycik rival, in straight sets at 63, 63. EXETER QUINTET ELECTS GEORGE A. HOLLOWAY EXETER, N H, March 21 George A. Holloway of Glencoe, 111, back on the basket-bRll team, has been chosen captain for the season of 1928. He is a member of the upper middle, class and is preparing for Yale. Hollowav is school teams champion. He won the title last October.

BOSTON MAY GET STATE GUP MATCH Whittalls and Lusitania Meet Again April 3 Fore River Hopes for a Victory in National Cup Tilt Here By GEORGE M. COLLINS Tiie State Cup semifinal between Whittalls and Lusitania Recreation will prohaibly be replayed at the Wal-pole-st grounds April 3. This second game will be the means of drawing out a larger crowd and the State Association believes local fans should have the replay on account of their support in the first game. Providing Boston is away from home on that date, the State semifinal will be played here. Fore River is said to be putting in extra licks this week in preparation for the National Cup clash with the Woodsies at Walpole st this Saturday. It will be a case of many Irish players UP against quite a few Scots. The Shipbuilders have about seven Irishmen on their team and are out to oust Boston from the National Cup. Down Quincy way an optimistic spirit prevails. Boston may have a better team from a machine point of view, but this Fore River team today has the winning spirit and will be hard to stop. NORTHEASTERN MAY PLAY DARTMOUTH IN SOCCER A matCn with Dartmouth, at Hanover, Oct 13. will be one of the features of the 1927 Northeastern University soccer schedule, according to Edward S. Parsons, graduate manager of athletics. Arrangements fof the contest are nearly completed. Light other games have been scheduled. Home and home series have been arranged with Universitv of Nw Hampshire and Clark. The addition of Springfield College is noteworthy. Of teams on last years list, only Durfee Textile has been dropped. t Harvard will meet the Huskies in a mid-week game, it is hoped, but the date has not been settled. John O. Copley, who will begin his fourth year as coach next Fall, expects a successful season with most of his veterans back. Rusty Howard is captain and Walter Haynes manager. The schedule; '1 24.

GARDINER COMING TO ARENA TONIGHT Canadiens Great Defense Man to Face Bruins Galbraith Said to Be Hi, but is Slated to Be on Ice Herb Gardiner, said to be responsible for lifting of the Canadiens Into second place in the Canadian division of the National Hockey League, will be at the Arena tonight. He was seen In Boston back in November, but was not noticeable for his play. Since then he has been the outstanding player for the Flying Frenchmen. He will be at defense against the Bruins, and with Morenz and Joliat on the forward line, the Canadiens are sure .to show dazzling speed. Right now the Canadiens are traveling at a faster clip than any team In the league. While the race, as regards winning places in the play-off series, is over, there is an interest in the work of the Canadiens, if for no other reason than the possibility that they may later be fighting for the Stanley Cup on the Arena surface. The Bruins will present their strongest front, although Percy Galbraith is said to be suffering from ptomaine poisoning and a heavy cold. Manager Art Ross is going to give all the players a chance, realizing they need the work in preparation for the first playoff gam against the Chicago Black-hawks next week. The teams will lineup as follows: Boston Oliver, Herberts, Boucher, rw; Frederickson, Stuart, o; Galbraith, Herberts, Meeklng, lw; Coutu, Cleg-horn, rd; Hltchman, Shore, Id; Winkler, g.

CHICAGO TURNS DOWN BAY STATE FIVES Worcester North Hoopsters Found Ineligible Unless some surprising development takes place before the end of the week, Massachusetts will not be represented in the Chicago University national high school basket-ball tournament next week. Medford and Worcester North High Schools both were willing to send teams to the tournament in Chicago but their players were unable to meet the strict eligibility rules of the Chicago basket-ball committee. Brockton also declined an invitation, the school rules forbidding such a journey. Medford declined the invitation las week upon discovering that two play-era could not comply with the regula-l"on2,,,nd yesterday Principal Robert Li. Elliott of Worcester North regretfully announced that two North High players were unable to make the grade. Both schools had students on the teami who had competed for athletic teams than eight semesters. tournament rules are so strict that only teams which include players who are as brilliant in the classrooms aui on the basket-ball rourt can compete. To be eligible at Chicago, the athlete must have a passing mark in enough studies to give him 15 credits on the day his tetam departs for Chicago; must be less than .0 years old and must not have competed in athletics for more than eight semesters. HAGSTR0M AND KANE KEEP NORTH OFF CHICAGO FLOOR WORCESTER, March 21 The North High School basket-ball team, which was announced last Saturday as Massachusetts representative In the national high school basket-ball tournament at the University or Chicago during the last week in March, will not make the trip. The rules of the tournament provide that no player shall have attended high school more than eight semesters, but two of the Nortn High boys, Herbert Hagstrom and Edward Kane, completed their regular four-year course last month. FITCHBURG NOT TO DEFEND HOOP TITLE AT CHICAGO FITCHBURG, March 21 Fitchburg High School basket-ball team will not take part in the national tournament 1 at Chicago to defend the championship won last year. This was definitely decided at a meeting of the School Board tonight. The team would lir ineligible because three players have been piaying too long. The School Board also voted to allow the use of Benjamin F. Brown Junior High School for professional games. BROCKTON HOOP TEAM LOST ONLY THREE GAMES BROCKTON, March 21 Although Brockton High closed the basket ball season with one of the best teams in its history, no championship was won for the first time in six years, perhaps due to the fact that the Suburban League had disbanded and there wru ! no Tufts tournament. The team won ' 17 of its 20 games, losing twice to Medford and once to Fitchburg. Capt Henry Smolensky led the team in points with 148, scoring 66 fieid goals and 16 from fouls. Bunny Prince was second with 111 points, made possible by 47 field goals and 17 points from fouls. Dudley Davidson, the biy center, was third with 99 points! Brockton scored 539 points to 316 by opponents. The second team won 12 of Its 18 games, losing to Medford and Chelsea twice each. All members of the second - '- o v w I J i J team are lower classmen and will be available for the first team for next year. Practically all of the first team squad, composed of nine players, will graduate this year. ST MARY'S C. A. VICTOR AT MANCHESTER. 50-21 MANCHESTER, March 21 St Mary i C.

Careful study of the football reform plan offered by Pres Ernest M. Hopkins of Dartmouth leads one to question seriously whether his suggestion that each college have two teams, playing home and home games the same day, would not work out exactly opposite to its sponsor's desires. It looks as if, instead of reducing the emphasis on football the plan would double it. For instance, were one Harvard and one Yale team clashing in the Stadium while another Crimson aggregation was meeting the second Blue, outfit in the Bowl, wouldnt there be some 135,000 specta-tors instead of the 55.000 or 80,000 possible under present conditions? And wouldn't the boys playfully place their dollars on whether their two teams totalled more points than their two rivals, thus betting on the score of two games instead of one? Another thing. In case each college supported two teams, the coaches undoubtedly would see to It that their respective first-string aggregations met, making the other game really a second-team contest. It is also a question whether the two-team plan could be adopted by many colleges, which are already hard put to it to find enough players for a first squad. Dartmouth Is rejoicing in Its first Intercollegiate Basket-Ball League champiomliip after years of effort. Coming from behind to beat Princeton right at the end was a fine performance. Dartmouth first entered the league competition in 1912, winning seven out of 10 games to finish second to Columbia. Since then it has placed as follows: 1913, tie for third, 35; 1914, last, 1-9; 1915, last, 0-10; 1916, fifth, 3-7; 1917, fourth, 4-6; 1918, last, 0-10: 1920, last. 1-9; 1921, second, 7-3; 1922, third, 6-4; 1923 fifth, 37; 1924, fourth, 4-6; 1925, third, 64; 1926, second, 6 4? It is a shame that no topnotch American player could see his way clear to enter the national indoor tennis championships, now In progress in New York, with Jean Borotra and Jacques Brugnon of the French Davis Cup team, hot on the trail of the title won two years ago by Borotra and last Winter by his teammate, Rene Lacoste. It is imposing quite a load on the second and third-string Americans to ask them to undertake the task of stopping the Bounding Basque and his huddle. The addition of Frank Shaughnessy of McGill to tho Harvard football coaching staff lor tho Spring work, forecasts a lot of attention to the lateral pass, a play which is used freely in Canadian rugby.
