fSst year, has already sent in his signed
contract. James Shoellenberger, Phila
delphia 'Prep' athlete and utility man
last year, has also signified his willing
ness of once more becoming a Chick."
Harry Pearce, a Philadelphia boy,
has been signed, and Jackson will look
to him to Mil the shortstop hole made
by the sale of Tony Marhefka to tho
New London club of the Connecticut
League. Of the other new men signed
by Jackson, there is George Zlbel, a
third baseman. This berth was occu
pied by Harry Fritz, the Philadelphia
schoolboy and Mack protege, who has
been sold to the State League. Zlbel
