HUCHEY JENNINGS IS NOW
MENTIONED FOR YANKEES
Detroit Manager Is Latest Candidate
Under the Ownership of Colonel
Jacob Euppert—Donovan to Get
His Job With Tigers
New York, Dec. 15.—Hugh. Jen
nings, manager of the Detroit Club, is
the latest prospective candidate for the
management of the New York High
landers, under the ownership of Jacob
Ruppert, the brewer. Should Jennings
come to New York, "Wild Bill" Don
ovan. who has been handling the Provi
dence club of the International League
as a side issue for Frank J. Navin,
will be given charge of the Tigers.
Jennings is believed to be the man
whom Ban Johnson referred to when
he declared, just before leaving New
York for home, that the name of the
new manager of the Highlanders would
cause something of a surprise in base
Captain Huston, who is to be asso
ciated with Colonel Ruppert in the
ownership of the Highlanders, was
brought into "lose touch with Jennings
last week by John McGraw.
Jennings "has led the Detroit Tigers
for eight years. He won three pennants
and has always had a fighting team.
Some critics have ascribed his success
to the presence of Ty Cobb on the team,
but Hughey has won without Cobb. He
is a fighter on the field, a pleasant gen
tleman off, and a rare diplomat at all
times. Such a man would undoubtedly
give the Yankees much prestige right at
the beginning of their reconstruction
and make New York a big city iu the
American League, as it is in the Na
Baseball men agree that John Mc-
Graw has been the greatest asset the
National League ever had, because he
made New York profitable for every
visiting club and the Giants the best
drawing card on the road. If Jennings
can in any measure duplicate McGraw's
success along these lines the American
League will he justified in making any
sacrifice to get him here.
When Navin purchased the Provi-!
'ience Club he sent Donovan from De
troit as manager, and later put him atj
the head of the club. Last summer Jo
seph .T. Lannin, president of the Boston
American League Club, bought the
Providence Club from Navin. Donovan
has not been reengaged as manager. He
is seeking a major league berth and I
would prefer Detroit of all cities be-!

Club will give up Fritz Maisel and;
three or four others Donovan can make

season, leaving Jennings free to reeon-i
struct the \aukees with material con
tributed by other American League
clubs and picked up by capable scouts.
The Tigers need a third baseman bad

no team, Captain Huston is reported
as saying, "than a lot of ball players!

BELGRADE IS RETAKEN BY
SERVIANS IN FIERCE FIGHT
London, Dee. 16, 1.25 A. IM.—The
Servians, after a fierce battle, have re
occupied (Belgrade, according to a Nish
dispatch to Reuter's Telegram Company
A striking feature of the day's offi
cial news is the candid admission by
the Austrian government of the derfea't
of the Austrian army in iServia and ap
parently of the abandonment of its
third attempt to invade the territory of
its BinX.ll Slav neighbor.
While attributing the failure to the
enemy's superior force, a* all govern
ment bulletins explain failures, the Aus
trian War Office announces plainly an
exteuded retirement and heavy losses.
"New decisions and measures conse
quently will 'be taken to repel tlhe en
emy," savs the Austrian statement. Ap
parently this means that the Austrian
army directed against Seryia will as
sume a defensive line.
The Servians claim to 'be pressing
home their victory with more captures
of prisoners and to have driven part
of the invading army across the Dritia
river. Moreover, they express confi
dence that they are a'botit to retake the
capital and expel the invaders from
Rome, Dec. 15.—Both French and
Russian infantry are fighting in t'he
armies of Servia and Montenegro, ac
cording to a dispatch from Prague to
tlhe "Giornale D'ltalia."
Three different times since the war
began, it has tieen reported that troops
have been sent to reinforce the .Ser
vians, in the latter .part of November
a dispatch from Sofia to London said
that fifteen Russian regiments had made
the trip by boat up the anbe, through
Rumania and between Rumania and
Bulgaria to the Servian 'border.
Ten days ago the Central News cor
respondent at Amsterdam forwarded a
report from Berlin that transports, con
voyed by French and British ships, had
landed troops at Antivari, on tfoe Mon
tenegrin coast. It was later asserted,
although without apparent authority,
that these troops were Russians who
had made the loug .journey "by sea from
Archangel. It is at least a striking co
incidence that the successful resump
tion of the Servian offensive occurred
a few days after the reported arrival of
the transports at Antivari.

The new ministerial declaration was

called for the execution of various
measures and resolutions voted by the
Portuguese Parliament on November
23 concerning the participation of the
country in the war in Europe or other
parts of the world where Portugal map

DICKS ARE USED BY SPIES

Correspondence of the Associated Press.
Mitrovitz, Croatia, Dee. 1. — are
now convinced that the employment of
ducks as allies is a "quack" system of
strategy. Their spies in this town,
