Rookie Inflelder Appears to Be Find for Sisler But St. Iiouis Manager Not Given to Conversation. BY HEJ4RY L. FARRELL. NEW YORK. April 18.—<U.R>— George Sisler is one of the hardest young men in baseball to lure Into conversation and when it comes to making predictions he is as noisy as a mute. "How about your club this season?” the youthful manager of the St. Louis Browns was asked some time back In the training camp. ‘‘We’re alright, -.1-- Sisler replied. .HELLiLO. “Some of the critics say you’re a sure one-two shot” "That’s very nice of them,” he replied at length. "Are you stronger than last year?” "I thtnk so,” he replied. ' After the most laborious cross- ..................... —----------------examination it was finally drawn [ pitching staff but it is well out of him that the Browns are im- • balanced and If they don’t disapproved this year by the finding of, point they ought to win a lot of At the rate Florida golf clubs are gobbling the best golfers in the country for their professionals the question naturally arises, how many more years before they are all gathered in the “only American tropics?” Norman Sommers. Lincoln country club professional since 1921, has heard the siren southland’s call. He leaves next November. In regard to the foregoing question he isn’t quite sure but admits a strong possibility. “There’s lots of money down there, plenty of competition and golfing weather the year ’round. Those are the magnets that are drawing such players as Gene Sarazen, Leo Deigel, Willie McFarlane, Mike Brady and others,” Sommers stated. He told of the numerous tournaments, practically all of which are open affairs carrying a worthwhile cash-- prize for the winner. Another method of maintaining interest is the formation of a league. Each club or ciTy is represented by two good golfers. The caliber of these golfers can be estimated when it is considered that Deigel and Sarazen played for a Miami club, Mike Brady and Ed WlUiam.s for another Miami club, the Cuici brothers for Sommers’ club, the FL Lauderdale Municipal course; John Brophy and John Rogers and others. Sommers happened to meet John Meadows, now of .Auburn, N. Y., but formerly of Lincoln and a chairman of the Lincoln country club greens committee here at one time. Meadows was wintering in Florida, He followed the now famous Bobby Jones-Walter Hagen match which Hagen won handily. Meadows told Sommers that the ■Atlanta backers of Jones did not give up until the match was hopelessly gone. They thought Bobby would pull it out but the Iron nerves of Walter Hagen never faltered for an instant. He got away to an early advantage and he held it.

Much Depends on “Breaks.” Like every other manager of a prominent contender, Sisler feels that the success of the team in the 0 i American league pennant race de• ’ pends largely on the breaks and the pitching staff.

He believes his dreams are about to be realized. He recently parted with Bally Bleese, a thoroughbred five-galted horse with a string of ribbons. In order to interest others, II. E. Sidles purchased Bally Bleese and he has become another enthus- sed booster for an academy here. Dick Rogers is another who is warming up to the Idea. “ When Omaha can support four It is certainly time that Lincoln has one,” Mr, W'asserman argues. He is going east on a business trip in about ten days and he Intends to stop In Kentucky and see what he can see in the way of more saddle horses. He Is going to be looking with a view of buying. There are many saddle horses owned here but no organized effort has ever been made to obtain an academy for the Capital City. Any harboring doubts as to the enjoyment to be derived from own_ ing and riding a real saddle horse ' should spend five minutes with Mt.

Of the fifteen Cornhusk«rs who took part in the meet Saturday thlrter'n of them placed third or beUer in the competition, a remarkable showing In itself, besides the two world record marks. With the exception of Locke and Davenport the Nebrai%a crew Is in excellent condition. Locke’s Injury should be healed by the end of the week if Infection does not .^et in. The tangle which resulted in the accident, came in the final touch- off of the ill fated quarter mile relay. Hopelessly out of the running following the Dalley-Heln mlx'up, Davenport lost his balance in passing the baton to Locke, and stumbled and fell. In the fall one of his spikes pierced Ixicke’s heel, going in the back and out the bottom of his foot. Davenport was also considerably skinned up from his slide on the cinders. Both runners however reappeared in the half mile world record breaking relay which Pays Expenses to Compete. Forced to make the trip on his own hook, Robert Stephens’ murk of 23 feet 4 inches which placed him second in the broad jump is all the moro remarkable. Coach Schulte would have liked to hav»« included Stephens on the list but the limit on expenses forced him to check several others including Bobby. The latter made the trip overland with Dick Newman however, paying his own expenses, in order to compete. W««ir was running his first compete flight of hurdles when he won the preliminaries and placed second in the finals. The big llusker hurdler lias been having trouble gettiug into thaiH' this spring because of the tonsil operation several weeks ago. Two other Nebraskans were not in condition.

April 18.—<U.R)—Ted Lyons hung up his second victory within a week and the White Sox evened the series with the Indians taking the Sunday game 5 to 1. The score; pire said, "is a manager now instead of a player. By that I mean that he is handling the club with the viewpoint of a manager aad he is getting results.” Sisler has no club rules. He lets the players play what they want and do largely as they wish during off hours as long as they remain in condiUon to play baseball. The team was full of hustle in the training camp and there was a very noticeable atmosphere of confidence in the players. Hard to Pick Infield. Sisler’s biggest problem will be the selection of the proper infield. There is no weakness but on the The National league is a curve- ball league largely because of the Influence and attitude of Manager McGraw of the Giants. He is a strong supporter of the curve ball. His pitchers work It overtime. The methods of McGraw are simply reflected in the other managers. No one has helped more to bring about a revival of curve-ball pitching than McGraw. He Is lo ne complimented for that. The use of resin makes for a firmer grip on the ball. A curve ball depends largely on the grip secured by the pitcher. Perhaps that is one reason the teen triumphs against whippings. Ehmke broke in with Detroit in 1916. His best season was in 1919 when he copped seventeen victories to ten defeats while hurling for the Tigers. run for the visitors. DEARTH OF CATCHERS The catching end of baseball is most Important.

There was no room for him at second with Marty McManus playing there and Gene Robertson is too good a third baseman to be kept out of the game. Robertson, however, is not of the hustling type and it may be that Sisler will have to move McManus over to third base and use Mellllo at second. The chances are that Robertson, with competition threatening his job, may put a little more spirit in his game. With Walter Gerber around, the shortstop position is in good hands and Sisler is the best first baseman in basebtiH so there are no Infield worries. , # The outfield also has plenty ot offensive and defensive strength in Harry Rice, the biggest find of years. Kenneth Williams. Doll Jackson, Durst and Bennett. Williams was in poor health last year and had a poor season but he ought to be back on his game this year. Wally schang and Dixon, a sharp shooting thrower, will alternate behind the bat. Schang will get the preference because of his experience in handling young pitchers. Loaded With Good Prospects. The pitching staff is loaded down with fine young prospects and ex- •perienced veterans.

Detroit and Washington plajed eighteen innings on July 16, 1909, w ithout either side scoring a run. possible exception of Pitcher Owen Carroll of Detroit. It looks as if the former Holy Cross star would eventually make good. No club in the American league has dabbled more and had less success with college players than the New York Y'ankees. Despite this, Manager Huggins is still willing to gamble with them and has several collegians with him this year. remember JOHN PAULJONES? Cornell’s great miler. John Paul Jones? The name of John Paul Jones flashed across the country on the evening of May 31, 1913. On the afternoon of that day John Paul Jones ran the mile in 4:14 2-o m the eastern Intercollegiate meet at Cambridge. It wa.s a record-breaking performance.
