Mitchell Would Make Ideal Manager
IN OrtDElt to got buck some of tho old following, tho flubs' iiwneis uio said to
bo considering Frank Clinncu as a successor to .loo Tinker. Chance Is Mill very
popular In Chicago. IIi would bring tho proplo limit, but It is a iiucstlon whether
lie cpuld hold thoin without a winning team, und thu material Is not at bund for
the ponnont winning combination. Tho majority of baseball ciltle believe Chance
haa eeon his best day ns a pilot. They contend that he fulled as a developer mill
that bis success with the Cubs was duo largely to the wonderful ability of tho
tnon developed by Krotik Halco, whoso health compelled him to resign as manager
of tho Cubs. Solco constructed tho famous Cub mnrlilne and turned It over to
Chftnco. It U truu that Cltanco won thu 1'aclflc Coast League pennant with IiIh
Los Angeles team last season, but thoro Is u great dlfferenco between tho two
leagues, and ho 'also had n, tenm of vetorim stars who wvio Just u tillle ubovu tho
class lp which thoy woro playing. ried Mltehcll, coach of the Ilrnvcs pitching
staff, Is favored by many of the directors (and theio nro many of them who are
meddling), nnd ho looks like tho Ideal man for tho Job. Mitchell Is ono of thu
emartost men In thu gnmu und lias proved himself a marvel lit developing
f. , youngsters, particularly pitchers. Ho Is
pitchers, and that Is what tho Cubs need most. Tinker's team made cihiukIi runs
to win tho ponnant nnd Joe hnd u strong pitching stuff, but mismanaged It.
Mitchell could tako tho sumo pltchors and llnlsh well up In the ince.
Player-Limit Rule Man Go
TUP playcr-llmit rule, which was the limit, also will lie placed on thu grill, and
f It survival thu Natlonnl League will huvn nothing to boast nbout, Tlieru Is
nothing particularly wrong with tho rulo If It Is enforced, but let us hopa the
191$ season will not be repeated, m far mi tho nilo Is coneerncd. Uist heasou
every club In tho Icaguo took ndvnntugo of tho disability clause and, asldo fiotu
Cincinnati, they nil carried more than twnnty-ouo playeis throughout the season.
At ono tmo the Craves had twenty.sovun nion In tho game within two weeks'
tlmo. This wnn accomplished by cleverly Juggling tho disability list. Tho
XJodgors considered twcnty-ilvo playeis us regulars nnd twenty-four slimed in
tho world's series money, which really Is laughablo In u tweuty-oue-player-llmlt
league. Tho dlnnts woro above thu player limit thinughuut tho season, und will
fight to havo the limit rulsed to twenty-five, which Is mure leasonalile. Other
clubs also took advantage of this rule, and It Is hoped that the American Leaguo
limit ot twenty-five, suggested by tho (.Hunts, will bu adopted. If the Natlonul
League Insists upon sticking to tho twcnty-nno-pliiyor limit It should do away
With tho Ineligible list and oe that It Is enforced.
Little Chance to Purchase Johnson
TIF1 now owners of tho ISoNton Amorlcnn I.etiguo club, Harry Frnzee und Hugh
Ward, nro thcutrlcnl men. It Is said that they offered thu Washington club
f 00,000 for Walter Johnson. If so, thuy probubly did It because they reallzu thu
valuo of a star attraction ar that they know tho valuo of publicity. Any way
ono looks at It Frazco and Wnrd aro un tho snfu stdo, us there Is not a rliauro
for them to get the wonderful Johnson. If they should succeed In buying
Johnson, thoy probubly would get all tho best f tho deal, piovldlng his pros--encq
on the Tied Sox had the uamo effect as tho addition of Trls Speaker did
tor Cleveland. When, Jim Dunn paid IS5.000 ror Trls Speaker last spring It
was said that Ilia now Cleveland owner made a serious mlstuke, but thu addi
tion of tlio wonderful outfielder put Cleveland lu tho racu. Tho Indians, with
Speaker in tho line-up, proved tho best drawing card In thp league, and Dunn
paid for Speaker nnd cleared his season's expenses before July 4, Johnson's
case) is somewhat different, however, us ho Is In tho gnuio only ouco In four
days, on tho uverago, and, besides, his presence would not muuu so much to tho
lied Sox. Tho world's champions havo enough star pitchers to win tho pennant
In nny Icaguo If the rest of tho team holds up Its end. and Johnson would only
be ono star hurler among many. As u member of thu Washington team, John
con Is the whole show and a wonderful Individual attraction.

YOll can talk to nny club owner or to
nny ball player and ho will admit to
you that upon tho uverago baseball Inter
est wanes heavily In six cities out of olght
uftcr August 1.
Kan Interest li centered upon tho pennant
race, thu Hag compel lllon. moro thuu It Is
upon Ihu gauio Itself. This Is proved by
tho fact thut tho averagn club, hopelessly
out of tho nice after July, Is lucky to draw
100U paid admissions n day vvhero the lead
ers uio drawing 10,000,
The present schedule or championship
nrraiigciucut is the weakest feature of huso
bull. Any competition extending over six
mouths Is suio to grow fugged and stalo
and heuwv latere It Is nearly over. Tho club
owner will uduilt this. Ho will the player.
Yot no move Is mado to correct a known
nnd proved weakness.
Cither tho season should bo divided Into
two ponnant races ot three months lath or
there should ba n shutter peiiuuiit race und
then un InterleuKUe series, with the eight
NutlonalLeuguo clubs Ihiown ugnlust tlio
eight American Lcukuo entries lu a competi
tion that would boom baiehall Interest to Its
highest point at tlio time when it now is
deadest In threu cities out or four.
You can talk to nny club owner about tho
point und bo will admit Uj until.
Vet ou can't get one of them to make
any move lu this direction. Thoy nil know
bow quickly Interest fades out III second
division cities and some first division cities
Yet none of them has shown tho nerve
or the foresight t" remidy this weak fca
turo of tho game!
Ilecauso It ulvwiys has been n. they nre
willing to keep It as It has been, even
though it all may be wrong
Tlio two big leagues havo" a wonderful
chance tills enr tu urrungo i 1317 compe
tition capable of adding fifty per cent addi
tional Intercut to the game.
Hut It's twenty to ono that you won't
find a club owner with sufllclcnt foresight
or ntilllclent keenness even to suggest u
