N. Y. GETS NATIONALS TO GET PITCHER MOGRIDGE AND LEWIS IN DEAL ' No Cash Involved, Says "Old Fox;" Figures He Got Best of Swap. By JACK XTB. . * Clark Griffith ? determination to " strengthen the Nationals for the com in* American League campaign became more than a mere New Year resolution last night when the presidentmanager announced that the muoh-talked-of deal with the New York Jankees was an actual reality. Bobby Roth. Washington right fielder and champion voyageur of the league, has been traded to Manager Miller Huggins for Outfielder Duffy Lewis, once a teammate of Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper in Boston* fend Oeorge Mogridge. southpaw slabber of the Yankee staff. It was an out-and-out trade, no money changing hands, according to Griffith. It has been no secret that Roth, who did not fit Into the Griffith machine, would not be back on the payroll next season, and Huggins was known to think rather highly of "BraggoV ability. By exchang ing his outfielder for another gardener of ability, despite the fact that he has reached the veteran stage, and a fairly capable southpaw. Griff flatters .himself that he has done a good day's work. Lewis Hits in Plncfces. Duffy Lewis was 'no whirlwind with the Yanks last year; he was out for a time with, a sprained ankle and participated in but 107 /games. Still, he proved that'his old fielding skill had not left hlra and was a dangerous pinch hitter. In slugging the ball the Yankee outfielder fell slightly behind Roth, with an average of .275 as com- | pared to .290 for the Washington man. Roth, also had an edge in rapping them for extra bases and showed a lot more speed on the bases. Bobby pilfered twenty-four sack*, while Lewis. falling into the fiat-footed habit of the entire ' Yankee team, stole only two. On the other hand Lewis' disposition will be an improvement over that of Roth and he should prove ef more real value to the Nationals. His pinch httting will help a lot and he can snag the high ones with as much skill and grace as any man In the business. Mverldfff >Viy Help. Griffith also expects to profit by the acquisition of Mogridtfr, who is a capable southpaw, even though his record last season was ^othing sensational. Mogridge is a lefthander who is blessed" with control 1 and his chief worth to the Yanks last season was as a finisher. There were also several teams upon which he appeared to have the Indian 1 sijrn. Boston. St. Louis and Philadelphia usually had h hard time beating him. Mogridge won five and lost nine 1 battles last year, though he took part in twepty-s?x games. He was taken out In efght of them and was a relief man in quite a few. Tn the earned run column his averaX^ wafc ' 4.32 a game, which was about oh a par with the average of the Nai tional slabbers. Keeping the ball over the plate was one thing the Yankee pitcher was able to do. He issued but 36 walks in 26 games. Gneu Roth Is Tickled. Playing for a New York club is usually the ambition of most players and Roth will probably not be sorry that he can again become a , teammate of Babe Ruth, as he was with the Red Sox in 1919. Bobby came to the Nationals last winter in a deal wherein Griffith traded Mike Menosky, Harry Harper and Eddie Foste^ for Roth and Shannon. Shannon failed to be of much benefit to the Nationals and was eventually sent to Philadelphia for the waiver price. Roth played through the season, doing splendid work at times, though his fielding was never up to par. He found it hard to go back fast on a hard hit ball and was also' weak on drives near his shoetops. This traie is probably not the last that Griffith will pull off before the season starts. He is still on the lookout for a third sacker and, ^ as money no longer appears to talk 1n baseball, it is probable that the infielder will be secured by the me dlum of a trade. More reinforceW ments for the pitching staff may also be landed. With the addition of Lewis and ' the strong probability that Bing Miller will be awarded to the ^Nationals, the outfield problem no longer appears to be a complicated affair. 3 SCHOOL QUINTS GET ACTION TODAY Three local high school teams will ] get into action today when Central battles a quint composed of former stars of the Mt.

"When he d*n? a Yankee uniform it will'be..the sixth he has worn ?ince he broke into the American League back in 1911. That was the year he graduated 'fron> the Kansas City club to the Chicago Americans.' In 1915 the Whita Sox 1 sent him to Cleveland, where he stayed for over three years. The Mackmen landed Bobby in 1919, but shunted him over to BoRton before, the end/of the year.

SOLDIERS BATTLE FOR TITLE TODAY | i i Shorty McCann Meets Chick j Kansas m Finish Bout , - At *Fo^t Myer. >f I The Fort Myer Riding Hall will h be the mecca of hundreds of Wash-h ington boxing fans this#aftvnoon 1 who will journey across the Poto- ] mac to watch the Eastern army 4 feather-weight championship bat- j tie between Shorty McCann, of the , Virginia post, and Chick Kansas. , of Camp Hoiabird, present holder of the title. These two clever sol- , dier battlers are scheduled to fight < ten rounds as the -feature attraction r>f the most ambitious boxing pro- , ^ram ever arranged in local army , circles. j Sergt. Frank Stacey, of Camp Hoiabird, will meet Kid Halderman. , of Fort Myer. in the semi-ftnal ( event. This bout is listed for eight } round#*. McCann. Fort Myer's hope in the main bout, is sure to meet a real test when he steps into the squared eirrh" wwr Chick Kmnsa*. The Hoiabird boy is a real battler. At infighting he is an adept and carries one of the meanest short arm jabs ever flashed in this neck of ' the woods. Fans who have seen him work declare, that hts little sixInch shots are as dangerous as the average fighter's stmffcht-from-the- 1 floor punch. His backers admit that i when he hits 'em they stays hit and J his last seven fights in which he scored as many knockout* Just t about prove the assertion. i However, McCann has been primed especially for this battle and may 1 cross the dope. If you listen ^to i the Fort Myer boys McCann is an I easy winner, in fact he's "in" al- t ready. Verbally both sides are put- ^ ting up a wicked front but this ] afternoon someone will drop a "30- < 3') end all" into the chatter arttl then j the referee frill announce the win- j ner Kid Chicarico. of Camp Hoiabird. will tackle Gergt. 8harr>, the boxing Instructor at Caif*t> Meade, in a six-roun<| dash which fs cxpected to be worth seelng.'V Another six-round scrap between Jark Anderson and Bat Tarkenton snd three four-round preltms complete the classy card for the day.

A great many people in this new West ot ours have high hopes thai J California's football team will tell the world in Impressive fashion that this is not the old West, that d?sp'.te current opinion in other sections. we know something of the workings of the modern game thai has gone in for aerial work muoh after the fashion of up-to-date transportation. Ohio J*avored to Wlji. Betting men tonight are offering odds of 10 to 7 and 8 to 6 that Ohio ; State will emerge from tKe festivities with the large end of the score. These odds have been created by that glittering arrav of ifubllclty given to the bewildering attack used by the men from C_>lutnbus, Qhlo. In this reaped the game has much the same preliminary angle as *he well-known Jeffries-Corbett fight at CJoney Island in 1900. California has the punch and Ohio State the fancy shifting style of attack. No one i knows where the next blow is coming from or In what manner It may t>e delivered. Perhaps history will be re-written and the punch will win Etgain tomorrow. It can happen. Bear Star Injured. Injuries have entered In the last minute of shifting of men and positions for the game. Berkey. of California. a fine end. has been replaced by Stephens. Berkey'r injured leg has given him trouble and Coach \ndy Smith-Judged It unwise to start tilm. Nisbltt will replace Morrison ?t full, this change being made for other reasons. Trott has been shifted out from right guard to right tackle in the . Dhio State line, replacing gpiers. Welche, a 215-pound giant, takes Trott's guard. C. Workman will start at Slyker's end and Bliss is scheduled to go in at right half. The game will start at 2 o'clock. Weather predictions are for a :loudy day with cool weather but no rain.NAVY FACES HEAVY LACROSSE SEASON ANNAPOLIS. M<L.
