Those Who Demand Mare Pay
Each Season Are Regarded Gen
erally as Inevitable Ell.
BY" LAWRENCE PERRY.
(Copyright, 1821. by The Oreifonlan.)
NEW YORK. eb. 19. (Special.)
On the eve of baseball's migration to
the southern camps. Judge Landis in
his capacity as supreme head of the
game, it was made known today, has
received requests from various mana
gers' of big league clubs to apply his
legal learning to the solution of the
question, always a burning one at this
time of the year, when is a contract
a contract?
Just at present the matter doesn't
involve so much the attitude of the
players who say tnat they are hold
outs as other phases of the contrac
tual relation. As for ball tossers
who at this time of the year affirm
that they are not going to play unloss
they receive more money than" is
named in their contracts it may be
said they are not seriously resarded.
'. Evil la Held (Inevitable. .
That. 's,' they are Held by the njana
gersito be evils as necessary and in
evltSble as measles,mumps, whoop
ina- icough and other things are to
children. Mainly temperament." That's
the way George Grant of the Boston
Braves put it yesterday. They will
come back, he said. Then, sadly, he
added that it was about the only
comeback some of them would do.
But there are other phases of this
contract business that do pinch just
now. One of them relates to the phy
sical condition of the players. All
contracts read that players shall re
port at early spring practice "in good
physical condition." Do they? They
do not. Long fall and winter, months
of inactivity have added useless tissue
to their bodies, softened their muscles
and cut their wind. If most players
ever lamped that clause about physi
cal condition they- give no evidence
that they have.
The result is that much of the time
which should be devoted to polishing
up for the opening of the league sea
sun is passed in working the players
into playable shape. As a matter of
fact, the average big leaguer regards
these southern training spells as a
junket, a vacation trip for his own
pleasure.
Just hoW well a manager succeeds
in breaking this illusion depends upon
his strength of mind and tenacity of
purpose. But whether the player Is
awakened or not to the real 'aims of
these southern visits, the fact remains
that as a general thing he reports for
spring practice better qualified to sit
in at an all-night poker session than
to play hard and fast baseball.
Judge Lamdls in a few of his pun
gent and well-selected words could
settle this situation and while it is
too late for him to effect any change
this year what with players already
en route or about to start for the
training grounds the matter, as said,
has been brought to his attention and
the chances are that next winter will
see a lot of our big leaguers paying
BT I H. GREGORY.
THERE'S many a slip betwixt a
baseball sale and its closing, but
from all signs and indications at
this writing Portland will have the
services this coming season of Bob
Bescher, outfielder,- in his day the
Heading base stealer of the National
league, and still a mighty fast man
and purloiner of many bases.
Bescher is no longer in the first
vigor of youth, but ballplayers who
know him say he still is good, very
good. Back in 1911 he stole 80
bases for Cincinnati and set a 20th
century base-stealing mark that
stands in the National league to this
day. -
Harry Stovey stole 156 bases with
the Athletics of the old American as
sociation in 1888, which is the world's
record, and in 1891 Billy Hamilton
swiped 115 sacks for Philadelphia in
the Nntinnnl len?ilp Tv Cnhh in 1915
captured 96 bases for the American! Pie went pretty well a few years ago,
league mark, but Ruby Bob Bescher's and, though he Is still young and has

the Cubs is men of experience.
Whatever other recruits are left at
home Walt will take along with him
to training camp plenty of young
pitchers. This not only v a enable
him to get a line on some possible
comers, but also will provide him
with plenty of material for pitching
to the batters. He will let his young
sters do most of that kind of drudg
ery while the experiencel flingers are
taking their time about rounding Into
form. It would never do, for instance,
to risk the returned tffi'-lency of
Rudy Kallio by having Mm strain his
arm pitching to batters when there
will be ten or a dozer, kids on the
bench who can do the work Just as
well and need the pitching practice
besides.
Walt isn't sure yet whether he will
ask Pitcher Dan Tipple to report. Tip-
greater attention to keeping them-

Training Money Donated.
Rural communities in the south
have proved this year that they pos
sess efficient boards of trade. They
came through like sports with wads
of money for training expenses and
the result is that the big towns have
been pretty largely passed up. Brook
lyn, to be sure, will go to New Or
leans playing baseball In the day
time and doing the French quarter
at night but for the most part the
big league outfits will do their work
amid the cactus and the sticks.
The back country of Texas will hold
the Giants, Detroit, Cincinnati Reds,
Boston Braves, Cleveland Indians,
Cardinals and the White Sox. The St.
Louis Browns, Athletics and Yankees
will be in the smaller Louisiana
towns, leaving" N' Awles to those
Dodgers.
The Red Sox will divide their time
between the diamond and the race
track . and gambling outfits of Hot
Springs and so will Pittsburg. The
Cuba will tramp over Wrigley's island
in the Pacific ocean. 1
What Is Secret, la Aaked.
It is almost a crime to knock a secret
in the head; just the same, it would
be a fair question to ask these rural
boards of trade down south just what
they get in return for the money they
put up for the honor of having the
big leaguers "in their midst." It puts
them on the map, say some. What
map? Well, the baseball map. All
right; admit that it does. What are
tlTe practical results of this? Nothing
except increased receipts at the local
hotel.
Not more than a dozen strangers
come Into town to see the ball play
ers at practice and as for the players,
they are the hardest boiled eggs that
ever infested a community when it
comes to spending money on the local
tradesmen. - In fact, most of them
haven't any money to spend. They
are broke when they arrive and the
money they don't save they lose on
games of chance.
Still the names of the town get Into
print papers throughout the country j
and the men who run the hotels doJ
very well.

since 1900.
Bescher was with Columbus of the
American association last year, but
Bill Clymer was manager, and the
club was a regular mad house. That
will hardly surprise anybody on the
coast. In view of what Clymer did at
Seattle the early part of 1919.
Bescner and Clymer did not agree at
all. They disagreed so frequently
and so violently, in fact, that Bescher
demanded to be traded somewhere so
he could get away from old Rough
House Bill.
Walt" McCredie heard about the
trouble between them while he was
at the minor league meeting in Kan
una ntv lst November and tried to
arrange a deal then for Bescher and
two othef Columbus players. It fell
through, but he has been aner
Bescher ever since. Columbus didn t
want to let him go. But yesterday
came a wire setting a price on
c...-,, ..r-ri Walt and the judge
snappd it up as a hungry trout grabs
a worm. . , ,,
Of course, that docsn t man.e
absolutely certain that Bescner
be sold. Columbus might renig on
the deal even yet. But from all ap
pearances it is as good as completed.

for a disorganized ball club. 41 bases
with Louisville in 1919 and 20 bases
for the same club the year Deiore in
onlv 67 cames. He isn't the hardest
hitter In the world, but wlien he gets
n ho worries the Ditcher goofy. A
man like that speeds up the whole
team on the bases, and tnat is one
place where we have been especially
weak In the last few seasons. I want
speed on the bases and, with Bescher

in 111 games. DUt stole 41 oases, ana
In 57 cames at Louisville .n li Dai
ted .257 and swiped 20 bases. He evi
dently is right at home whenever he
reaches first.
It will be something of a novelty
for the Beavers to have a real base
stealer. Not since the old days has
there been a man on the club who
can streak down to second with any
thing like an even chance of getting
there.
The Portland players and recruits
wintering here will shove off for
Santa Maria, now officially selected
for training quarters, on Sunday,
March 6. However. Walt expects to
get away four or five days or a week
before that. He will go direct to
Pasadena, where the Cubs will begin
training a week before the Beavers
are due at Santa Maria, and chin
around with Johnny Evers for a few
days while he ge. a line on the Cub
players. In that way he will know
pretty well what men he wants. v
Chicago owes Portland two men on
the Maisel deal, and Walt has hopes
of getting perhaps a couple of oth
ers on optional agreements. By giv
ing them all the once over eforehand
he will protect himself against the
possibility of taking any lemons. Chi
cago has about as many semi-pros on
its recruit roster as Portland has, and
has
ts of stuff, his reputatio ; of being
an unlucky pitcher has preceded him.
"If the boys will only bat In a few
runs behind me, I'll turn in a flock
of games for the club," remarked Sam
Koss, the globe-trotting southpaw, to
the Judge and Walt at the hot-stove
league session yesterday. "I went
46 innings once last season without
having a run scored for me, and 88
Innings with only six runs to go on.
That's some hard-luck record, I'll tell
the world.
"After that 46-inning runless streak
the boys landed on one of the San
Francisco pitchers for six runs In the
first inning. I nearly fell dead on
the spot, but turned In an ll-to-0
game for the club. So few runs were
scored for me that 1 felt sometimes
hat I'd like to have one to keep as
a souvenir. Honest, there was game
after game when I didn't know what
a run was like."
Sam has some great tales to tell of
his adventures on that baseball tour
to. Japan. He says the Japanese
treated them as courteously as If
they had all been foreign ambassa
dors, and that the big statesmen of
the country would invite them up to
their homes to have tea.
"I don't know where they get all
thij talk about war with Japan," said
Sam. "The Japs didn't act as if there
ever had been a hard word between
the two countries. Never had such
fine treatment in my life as they
gave us. They even made us presents
of canes and baseball bats. Say, I
.have a couple of ash bats I brought
back with me from Japan that I have
a hunch will bring me a lot of hits
this season."
When the boys went Into Formosa
to play a series of games they were
regaled with some wild talk about
the terrible head hunters who inhabit
the island. Sam and his clubmates
got within six miles of a fence sup
posed to keep the head hunters in
the'r own- bailiwick, but they didn't
know what moment a head hunter
might climb the fence and try to lift
one of their heads for his collection.
"He'd have had one hard time get
ting my head." said Sam. "I carried a
baseball with me all the time ready
to bean any bird that started that
kind of rough stuff. My old dome
fits well enough to my neck so that
I'm not hankering to add it to the
solid ivory collections the chiefs of
these head hunters clutter up their
front yards with."
Walter Goss Sends Out Bul
letins to Clubs.
THIRD CHARTER GRANTED
Bill Essick at Vernon has turned
down the services of Jim Thorpe, the
famous Indian, for a peculiar reason.
Akron in the International league,
where Thorpe played outfield last
season, offered to sell him, but Eriaick
replied that he didn't want Thorpe,
not because he Isn't good enough, but
because he figures he is too good.
Essick's reasoning, in brief, is that
Thorpe is too much of a star to do
his club much good. He says he
would rather have a club of fair to
medium ballplayers who will play to
gether, without any one outstanding
player to hog the applause, than a
club with the greatest star in the
world. Big Jim hit .330 In the Inter
national and ought to do well on the
coast. He was with New York sev
eral years ago, but never was quite
fast enough for the majors. Jim still
is a great professional football player,
though they say he Is so busted up by
his long career of battering and be
ing battered that he can play only
about ten minutes at top speed. But
ten minutes of Thorpe's top speed
,1s as good as a couple of hours of
some players' best work.
Sectional Representative of I'nllcd
States Association Suggests
Time for Competition.
Walter A. Goss, sectional repre
sentative here for the United States
Lawn Tennis association, has sent a
bulletin to tennis clubs of the north,
west containing official notification
that a charter has been granted the
Pacific northwest section and sug
gesting dates for the coming season's
tennis schedule.
In the bulletin he rolnted out that
this was only the third charter grant,
ed in the Unlcd States and that the
action of the national association In
permitting the northwest to operate
under its own charter was a blgn
compliment to the clubs of this sec
tion. Schedule Is Suggested.

BT DICK SHARP.
T ITTLE did those In attendance at
I the auditorium last night re;
Ji iza that Giuseppe Inzerillo, the
dramatic tenor who was enthralling
them with his singing in "II Trova
tore," was one time, not so many
years ago, a knock 'em dead scrapper
battling in the New York ring under
the picturesque name of You
Sharkey.
The leap from the prize ring to
o-rond oDera. and a featured star at
that. Is auite a jump, but Inzerillo,
iia Young Sharkey, is the enterpris
ing gentleman who nas accompnsnea
the well-nigh incredible feat. He is
not ashamed of Deing. at one time, a
heavyweight mauler of championship
prospects, and still keeps himself
physically trim by boxing at least
veral times a week during his stay
in each city, while traveling as
member of the San Carlo Grand Opera
company. He is a great booster for
the boxing game. Perhaps one rea
son is because he got out of it with
out incurring any cauliflower ears or
a shattered nose.
First Work Messenger Boy.
Inzerillo, who is now 32 years old,
first doiwied the gloves during the
days of the old Frawley law regime
in New York. He first became im
bued with the desire to do battle
.hii actina- in the capacity of a
messenger boy for a telegraph com
pany. Young Inzerillo was called
upon' frequently to defend the honor
of his section of little old New York
and did so' with a vengeance.
He grew big and husky and finally
decided upon a ring career. Someone
tacked the name or xoung snaraey
on him and soon he was battling

1 fists. Now as Giuseppe Inzerillo he
scores knockouts with his Voice.
Young Sharkey had hardly fought
his way Into the main-event class as
a 180-pounder before the Frawley
law 'was repealed. He drifted from
the game and fate next found him a
street-car conductor. This did not
appeal at all, and he wound up as a
taffy puller in his fathers candy fac
tory. Fellow workmen In the factory
began to comment as to his voice
and urged him to cultivate It. Inzer
illo still had his prestige as Young
snarxey ana was in rond hopes that
boxing would be reinstated, but as
time passed he decided to find out
if he could sing.
Singlna- Talent Recognized.
Carbone, a famous maestro of 15
years ago whom he went to. recog
nized his talent at once and Young
Sharkey forever descarded his ring
name and hied off to Italy for a so
journ under Italian masters. He mmie
his debut as a tenor robusto In Ha
vana not hardly a year and a half
ago.
His engagement in Havana drew
the attention of Fortune Gallo anl
upon his return to New York he
signed a contract to sing for the San
Carlo Grand Opera company, which
was to open its annuai season In New
York. It is his first tour of the
United States as a singer and he ha.i
been meeting with great success.
Inzerillo and Tom Sharkey, his
namesake, are great friends. Only a
month ago while in Los Angeles In

"This you will note," said Mr.
Goss 'follows virtually the same
schedule as was in effect last year,
and for several years past.
"The place of holding the Idaho
state championship has not yet been
determined but will be announced at
the time the final dates are agreed
upon. It will be noted that the Pa
cific northwest sectional champion
ship, which takes the place of what
has heretofore been known as the
International, is scheduled for Vic
toria the week beginning July 13.
"It is possible that some of the clubs
will feel that this sectional doubles
championship should be moved ahead,
for the winners of the doubles will
be sent east to play at Boston
August 22, and it does not give a
great deal of time between the com
pletion of the Victorian tournament
and the date when our eastern team
will have to leave for Boston.
Date Interchange Poamlhle.
"It Is possible that the Victoria and
Vancouver clubs could Interchange
dates, thus setting ahead this big
event one week. The problem also
confronts us of what we shall do
with our junior championship. Laxt
year it was unanimously voted that
this junior championship Bhould be
held by the club holding the sectional
championship.
"However, rather a serious situa
tion confronts us this year becauae
of the fact that the sectional doubles
will be held In British Columbia. At
present no British Columbia I" l
would be eligible for competition in
the Junior championship and since
the junior championship will also go
east it would not be right to attempt
to play this tournament unless the
British Columbia lads were allowed
to compete.
"This can be easily corrected, and
I will at once ask for the appoint
ment of tennis centers for both Vic
toria and Vancouver, provided this Is
the wish of our clubs. However, 1C
all three of these tournaments
namely, the championship of British
Columbia, which is always a very
lr.rge tournament; the sectional sin

gether with the Pacific northwest
junior championship, are crowded into
one week at Victoria, it will certainly
create a jam which may be well-nigh
Impossible.
"From the number of tournaments
we now have on our Pacific north
west schedule, you will see that we
have before us a continuous perform
ance, beginning June 20 and ending
August 20, provided the schedule, as
I have suggested, is adopted, and pro
vided it is the desire of the cluhs
that we arrange for no conflict. Ws
can't always hope to get along with
out conflict as to dates, for, as our
section grows, there are not enough
weeks in the season to grant one
week each to the various events."
