UESIDENT FELIX DAYMAN of the Hornets has received a copy of the schedule tcntaively agreed on by the moguls at the Charleston ih has mailed copies to the different clubs for meeting Monday Boss Walsh has mailed copii their inspection and approval and already the Charlotte officials have wired back an emphatic no The schedule Is a joke and is as bad or worse than the fright the directors adopted last year If It is put into effect It will be heartily cussed by all concerned before the season is hulf over and the magnates will be panned roundly for their poor judgment While the card has not yet been officially adopted representatives of the Columbia Charleston and Augusta clubs are said to favor it and if these men can get one other club to stand with them the schedule as drafted will stand no matter how strenuously the Charlotte club and the other member of the minority party may object The schedule Is said to be a compromise between one drafted by Fritz Von Kolnltz business manager of the Charleston club and another one It provides for a total of 150 games for the season 75 at home and 75 abroad One of the chief objections appears to Je the length of some of the home stands For instance the Hornets are carded for Wearn Feld nine straight days In May against the Charleston Spartanburg nnd Greenville clubs In June they are home for 11 days In a row in July for seven straight games nnd later in the same month for 1U more August finds them at Wearn Fold for 12 straight contests This is entirely unnecessary Six consecutive games are as many as the baseball public wants and these long home stands are going to hurt the clubs in a financial way as well as detract from the interest In order that each club may play the same number of games the sharps who framed the schedule found it necessary to include several “off days” something entirely new in the minor leagues On July 21 the Hornets will lie idle while the Spartanburg club less than 100 miles away also will be loafing on that day The locals will he Idle for three days August 8 July 21 and July 38 Mr Wearn of Charlotte ns usual submitted n draft and as usual It was turned down Why nobody knows Boss Walsh and a few others may know but they did not even trouble themselves to Inform Mr Wearn the reason why his efforts were not accepted Inasmuch as Mr Wearn’s schedule seems to he a fair and impartial program the fans of Charlotte and the officials of the local club would like to know why it is that nothing submitted from this city ever manages to get anywhere at a meeting of the Sally league magnates Mr Wearn took Into consideration the mileage of each club and he based his schedule on this Another advantage It seems to us is that he has the clubs rotating In their visits to the different cities For example If Greenville opens tho season In Charlotte the Spinners would not play a return engagement here until every other club had visited Charlotte and the Hornets had played a series in Greenville Last year it will be remembered the Spartanburg and Augusta clubs did about all the playing here during the first half of the season They were here so much that the fans became tired looking at them and quit going to the park Mr AVearn's schedule must have some glaring faults to be par-’d up in favor of the Joke compiled at Charleston it took the tnngnaies hours to frame It up It was early morning before they quit One look at the draft will show how’ tired and sleepy they must have been Anyway If the two schedules were printed nnd the fans of the league were allowed to vote on which was to be adopted ihe odds are ten to one hat the AVearn draft would win by a landslide Next year the directors will do well to curry our their proposal to employ a professional to do the work If they can't even adopt a good one it stands to reason that they can’t compile one f HORNETS TO GET PLENTY OF SPRING WORK AMONG those who believe that there Is nothing like real games to whip ball players in shape for the season’s grind is Eddie Hooper the new manager of the Hornets This business of throwing- and batting the horse-hide around for throe or four weeks may be all right Hooper things but It can’t compare with regulation nine inning games with jui much real pitching as the spring weather will stand Accordingly most of the Hornets’ training this year will be hi the (nature of exhibition games President Haymsn has eight on the 'string I already and is looking for more Hooper can get a better line on his material if he has the opportunity'to observe the men work against a club that is trying its best to win from the Hornets According to present plans the Insects who will report to Manager Hooper here on the first Monday in April will do 10 days of preliminary work At the end of this time the kinks should be out and they should be able to go through nine Innings of real baseliall without being stiff and sore the following morning The pitchers too -will be cutting loose a tie more after two weeks of easy workouts and when Charlie Clancy brings his Winston-Salem Twins here for two games on the 13th and 14th the Hooperites will be in trim to give them a battle After the Clancy team has come und gone the 1-reensboro Patriots last year’s champions of the Piedmont league will play Charlotte at AVearn Feld on April 16 and 16 The next day will be Kunday but on Monday Hooper will take his gang to Winston-Salem fur two more contests against the Twins these to be followed by a brace In Greensboro on Axiril 20-21 These eight games should put Hooper’s boys on edge for the opening game on April 25 The baseball season at ATearn Feld will officially open on Easter Monday when the Biddle university team will oppose I-ivtngstone college The next game will be on April 7 between the Philadelphia Nationals and Connie Mack’s Athletics of the American league If Ray Ryan brings his Richmond Colts to train at Gastonia Mr Hay-man proposes to hook several games here and in

Feb 25 — Chances for league baseball in Wilmington went a-glimmerltig yesterday at noon when a telegram was received from Goldsboro fans announcing that the AVayne county folk didn’t think enough of semi-professional baseball to debut into the proposed Eastern Carolina circuit This decision following the stand of the clubs taken at Kinston a week ago when it was decided that if Goldsboro failed to enter the league Wilmington would he eliminated because of its distance from other clubs serves to automatically eliminate this city from consideration when the league Is formed if that should come

any nearer a match today than he was a year ago Harry Wills whipped Fred Fulton in Jig-lime He was happy tn the thought he'd get a chance at Dempsey for It had been reported that the champion would
