" - TUESDAY EVENING ' 'jbaManlT Crifiune '' FEBRUARY 9, 1926 D j . w Giants Try to aign Another , Good Catcher ITenline of Philadelphia Is Sought by McGraw to Com-plete Receiving Staff. . By WW B. FOSTER. SPECIAL BY WIRE 10 THE TRIBUNE NEW TORK, Feb. 9. The New York Giants have not yet given up J hope or getting another catcher by jnmttode or: purchaseJjeforeJhe reason of i926 begins., Henline. of Philadelphia, seems to be about the only experienced catcher for whom a dicker could be made and It is understood the Giants are set ting their cap for him. At present the Giants find them selves with only one experienced catcher. Grover Hartley. Of course, they are better off than some other teams, even so, be cause they have few young pitch rt who need special randung. McQCILLAN PROMISES. This is especially true now that Nehf and Greenfield have signed their names on th dotted line for lSZf and that wcuinan nas patched up hissJifference with the club and will rejoin his team with a promise of good behavior. McQuillan has been a sort of Babe Ruth to the Giants in the manner in which he has conducted himself. He should be one of the great pitchers of the Na tional league, but recently he has not kept himself in proper condi tlon. Added to this trio, the Giants will have Scott and Virgil Earnes and they are all easy to handle if a veteran catcher can be secured to keep with them. AMERICAN' SCHEDULE OCT. Formal sanction wts all that the American league had to give to the 1826 schedule at today's meeting in Washington. The schedule al- ' ready has been agreed upon by the club presidents and the National - league has been advised as to the dates. This is the American league's turn to make its schedule public first, an alternate year plan having been put into effect so that the two leagues could divide what ever advantage wan to be had from getting the "breaks" in newspaper Dublicatioa of the playing dates. The American league meeting In Washington today was not ex pected to result in any very im portant trades of players. . The last time the league held its ached ale meeting in Washington- there were rumors of a big deal which would affect the Yankees. This time there was advance talk only of one or two minor trades and the fact that few of the managers were present for the schedule meeting seemed to bear out the Idea that there would not be much doing in the trade line. LANDIS MATTER WAITS. Baseball followers waited with Interest to see what, if anything, the American league would do about the resolution recently adopted, by the National league going on record In favor of -a new 19-year term for Baseball Commissioner Landis. Most members of the American league had understood, up to the time of the National league's action, that Uie Landis matter was to be the subject of a joint conference in the rear future. They had not expected to take an action until after that conference had been held and it seemed to be the feeling of a majority of them that no action should be taken at today's meeting. , It had been erroneously re. ported that the American league would act today upon the modifi rations in the rules recently de cided upon by the join rules committee. The rules are under full control of the rules committee, on which there are representatives of both big leagues as well as the minors and the committee's action The new McGtawSerenades HenmSrfAfteF Getbng-Groh tuts. v 1f) e.i. n ty club- i fiziEM; :i '-itlPfatS 1 M J NEMVOM I Flowers' Ring StyleMay Not Bother Greb Middleweight Champion Off for East After Reaping Harvest in California.

McGraw was tickled to death to get Groh and had a crowd of his old-players and cronies gathered around him, including Scout Dick Kinsella, Roger Bresnahan, Johnny Evers. Larry Doyle, Joe Tinker, Jim Tearney and myself. It was about three in the moraine- and Mac decided to go down to Garry nerrman s noiei, waits mm up and talk to him about the trade. We an trailed down the street, with McGraw leading the way. Half way down to the hotel we ran across two negro musicians on their way home from a dance. One was armed with a gigantic bass viol and the other a saxophone. Taklnghem along we all made our way to Garry's room on the fifth or sixtn floor and serenaded him.

Utah Magnates Plan New Baseball League A preliminary feeling of the baseball pulse in the territory con- usuuus 10 oan uiKa seems to warrant the belief that, although the Coast league has detiarted from ucan. tnia section will not be without organized baseball this season. Since onlx the first steps have neen taken towards ascertaining mo Knuraem ox erase Da 11 lovers in the cities and towns most likely to be Included in a new league, no aeimite plans have been outlined, or even surtreated. Th rymimt nowVer. has reached a stage where serious discussion may be In dulged in. At tbe beginning. -which means this season, it would be the aim to keep the league as compact as pos- sime. inus. no inclusion f far orr places, such as Great Falls, Butte or Spokane, is contemplated in me pians now under considera uun.. remaps wunin a year or two tne circuit might be extended. Such extension would depend upon the success of the l2t undertaking. Anyhow, for the present sea-on, the tentative plans comprehend only Utah and Idaho towns so situated as to make possible transportation ata, minimum cost.

Schedules for all three teams are now being compiled, and local teams desiring games with either of them should' write or telephone Scout Executive Ueorge E. Kenolpp, Mountain and SON MATHEWSOX A JlmJfalhcwson iSozcnwi iSuIger Among the first things a ball player learns or is most apt to learn when 'he get in tbe Big League is to play cards and smoke cigarettes. Matnewson waa no ex ceDtion. These habits, which aa a rule are quite harmless, according to my observation, awem to be a natural Dart of the ballplayer's life. They are the result of hours of enforced idleness' such aa long train rides and lounging about the hotels while away from home. The question or card playing or cigarette smoking being physically or mentally harm ful is still widely discussed, but usually by persons not familiar with the atmosphere about ball club. It is a fact nevertheless, that II per cent of all platers enjoy these habits. Overindulgence la either can bring about harmful results as was proved when McGraw had to forbid tbe playing or. poker and shooting crar by the old team ef Giants one entire season. Members of the team had been playing for too Mgh stakes. Losses had so worried a few ef them as to keep their minds off the game. There ia nsuaiiy no training rule against cigarettes but the excessive use of them Is known to nave af fected the work of a few players . a eery few.

'then It ia easy to understand why Mathewson waa tho greatest of all pitchers. All games of chance faacinated Matty. Though he loved the spirit of contest and the matching of wits. his interest was largely mathemati cal.

Kremer was given a fat raise- over last year and except for having transporta tion fixed for him and his family he did not have a bit of trouble over his contract. Kremer is now receiving three times as much with 1600 to spare, more than what he received when ' pitching for the Oaks in 1923. And at the start of 1923 there were some who would say "Ray Kremer through." Krause, Gulsto and Miller are trying to get Kremer out on the road with them, but the big pitch er says it will bs time enough fdr him to hit the road when he ar rives at Paso Robles, where tbe Pirates start training on February Z5.

Griffith wai Oppose Resin for A. L. Hurlers WASHINGTON. Feb. 9. OP) Club presidents of the American League assembled here today to adopt the playing schedule for the coming season, but with other and more important topics on tap. The playing dates already have been assigned and the magnates merely have to approve them, leav ing the remainder of the session for discussion of a proposed revised constitution ' for the league and other matters. Including resin for pitchers and the pre-season player, trades. f Clark Griffith, president of the Washington senators, is urging revision of the constitution, but is opposed to the proposal of the joint rules committee that pitchers be permitted to use resin bags for drying their hands. Reorganization of the constitution and its many amendments, - he believes, would be the "best thing the American league has done in years," while adoption of the resin proposal would be a " step backward," Whether the question of extending Baseball Commissioner Landis' contract will be acted upon at the session remained problematical.

W)Miss Joyce Wethered, "The Harry Var-don of women's' golf," is reputed to have greater concentration than any other woman player. Recently she was playing a three-yard putt when a railroad train whizzed by within 100 yards of her. She sank -the ball in spite of the noise. One of, her companions remarked that he was surprised the train had not interfered with her play. "What train?" she asked. Miss Wethered is an ardent fish- en woman, enjoys motoring, is a keen tennis player, skates well and is fond of skiing and bobsledding. At present she is in Switzerland enjoying winter sports. She refused to devote her entire time to any single form of sport. Her refusal to play this year for the golf championship is said to be due largely to unwillingness to give up all other outdoor activities and devote her time to golf.
