CONNIE MACK is busy hop
ing that the old adages are
still hitting on all six and
that a bad start still calls for a
bang-up finish. The Ol’ Timer
from Philadelphia is anxious to
ropo another pennant with the
Athletics before he steps down as
their pilot, and the 11*29 crop of
Elephants most assuredly didn’t pet
away to any sprinting start when
they dropped their first two exhi
bition games to the St. t,oui3 Car
dinals in the Floridian Palm Tree
Your roving reporter saw the
A’s drop their third straight exhi- j
bition game when they hooked up ;
with the Cincinnati Beds before |
a well crowded grandstand at |
Miami and, while they were the big ;
splash in the American League
last year, they didn’t look com- 1
potent to repeat as a sensation in '
this year’s canter.
Naturally, the Maekmcn were
just getting under way and we’ll
reserve a real prediction-—if any—
until wo have seen them in action
later on in the training season.
But the Athletics didn’t seem to |
have the old pepper that makes I
pennant winners and that ol’ pep !
should be noticeable in the Spring 1
if a team is going to raise cob in
the regular season's campaign. i
Running across Eddie Collins in j
the hotel lobby before the game,

the condition of the A’s.
“We dropped our lirst two ex
hibition games,” responded Eddie,
“but we still have a long way to
Whatever happens, Connie Mark
is likely to stand almost pat on his
last year's lineup. He wasn't active
in the baseball marts over the
Winter months and, while he is
letting a few rookie twirlers and
outfielders work out with the club
at Fort Myers, practically the
•rime team which represented Phila
delphia last year will be on deck
when the season opens later in the
Mack has a flock of real ball
players, starting with Eefty Grove
and finishing off with A1 Sim
mons, the heavy-hitting gardener.
Next to John McGraw, of the New
York Giants, probably no manager
lias so many outstanding ball
Hayers on his roster as Connie
Mack. And to prove that he is
fairly well satisfied with the ma
terial on hand, he’s not going to
add many new names to the pay
If Mack needs reinforcement in
the outer garden ho has Homer
Kuremia, the former University of
Missouri star, who played six sea
sons with Cleveland and was sold I
during the Winter to Philadelphia.
His six-year batting average with I
the Indians was better than .300. I
Mack also is looking over Nick |
’lion-ill, the Muhlenberg College
star, and ltedman Hume, the crack
outfielder from the Southern
Methodist University.
Although he has two of the best
southpaws in the business, Mack
had three other portsiders in camp.
They are Bolen, of Baltimore;
Wingard, of Milwaukee; and
Yerkes, of Portland. The A’s ap
parently think they can lcfUiand
their way to the pennant!
In early exhibitions Mack was
using Ossie Orwoll, the ex-pitcher,
on the initial corner, with Jimmy
Koxx, the ex-catcher, at the hot
corner. These boys are both fast
workers and good hitters, and they
are likely to be seen at those spots
when the year opens. Back of the
platter he has one of the best
backstops in the game in Mickey
Cochrane. Jimmy Dykes is still
floating about from position to po
sition. Dykes is Mack's handy
man and in a pinch he can fill
in at any job excepting the battery
position ■
Some > ■' the wise boys insist
that Mack started playing exhibf
tion games too early. They con
tend that the bad showing at the
start was due to the fact that the
team didn’t get enough preliminary
work ^o put them in the pink, but
Mack feels that it i3 good train
ing to play real games and this
Or Master isn’t worrying so much
about the start. He’s interested
in the finish.

High School Girls
Duck Marshal Under
Pump For Interfering
Mountain Grove, Me.—Things
never will be the same with C. J.
Hinkle .town marshal of Mountain
The marshal's new blue uniform
never will be as well fitted and his
star may never have the same
bright luster—for two dozen high
school girls recently concluded the
process of putting the marshal "in
his place" by holding him under the
town pump while streams of very
wet water poured upon him.
The marshal was trying to quell
a near riot when the senior and
.sophomore girls of the Mountain
Grove high school waded into the
annual class fight with flic junior
and freshman girls.
Marshal Hinkle, recently elected
and very proud of his uniform and
star and seriously bent on main
taining peace at any cost, hastened
to the campus to bring order out
of chaos.
But the young women would
have none cf Ins peace-making ef
fort. Instead, the two host ice forces
quickly became allies and the mar
shal was seized and dragged across
the school yard to the town pump.
There, while he struggled in vain,
lie was given a cold bath—uniform
and star and all.
It was not until a fire alarm was
turned in and Mayor C. H. Duvall
and Fire Chief Otis Sherrill drove
a hose wagen to the scene and
hitched up the hose and turned a
stream upon the young women that
the marshal was rescued from un
der the pump.
But the marshal is not a bad fel
low at heart. He forgave the girls—
after having the new uniform clean
ed and pressed.
