NEWS OF THE SPO
HARRISBURG SAW A CREAT
' YEAR OF SPORTS IN 1914
Central Pennsylvania Baseball League
Opened and Senators Copped Flag
In Tri-9tate—Tech Had the Better
of Scholastic Sports
The year 1914 in shorts hereabouts
was a big one. There were several
upsets in scholastic games ami two new
.projects have been started that are
(bound to continue for years to come.
(Foremost and of the greatest impor
tance was the establishment of the Cen
tral Pennsylvania League of Baseball
Clubs, embracing Middletown, High
spire, Steelton and New Cumberland.
Not only was th league started, but it
went througfh a remarkably successful
season for its first one and now it is
firmly established. Plans are now afoot
to make it better for next season. Frank
A. Stees, the president, deserves a lot
of credit for pushing the thing through
to a successful •finish, although the well
known rivalry between various of the
teams seemed to make it a difficult
problem at times.
The past season saw the Harrisburg
team of the Tri J State 1-ieague take down
the pennant after a hard race. It was
Manager Oockill's second success in
three years. He furnished good baseball
to the fans and several of his 'players
attained such reputations that they are
lost to Tri-State baseball. Since the
close of the season Oha'bek has been
drafted 'by Brooklyn, Adams by Pitts
burgh and Miller has been sold to
Scranton of the New York State League.
All of these players brought 'money to
the treasury of the local club and the
season, while not a howling success in
that line, the backers did not loose too
much money in giving Harrisburg good
baseball. An offer has been received
for another Harrisburg player
daily those on the inside are expecting
that the sale will be consummated.
It was also during this year that
President George >M. Graham conceived
the idea of increasing t'he league to in
clude eight cities and his plans have
been about completed. Definite action
will be taken soon at the annual meet
ing of the league. Not long ago 'Buck
Freeman and Jack 'Deal have signified
their willingness to enter Tri-State
basefball again. This planning for next
season is about as important as the ac
tual playing season of 1914.
In scholastic, athletics during t'he
year Tech seemed to have the bulge on
Central. T'he Maroon and Gray team
won the dual track meet from Central
High on 'May 23 by the score of 9S to
33. Again Tech won t'he annual high
school track and field meet with a
score of 85. Reading was second in
this meet with 45%, Steelton third,
39%, and Central fourth with 21. Beck
was the greatest individual point win
ner and Kls(Hheid broke the only record
for the meet by hurling the discus 109
feet 5 inches.
Football is the most important of the
scholastic athletics and Tech had its
most, conspicuous season, suffering but
one defeat at the hands of a high school
eleven and winning for the first time a
game from the Central High school.
This is the owe thing that stands out
all important in scholastic athletics in
the year 1914. A lot of individual
honors were gathered in 'this sfpoTt by
Beck, the sturdy Tech fullback.
1914 saw the opening of the switm
ming tank at the P. R. R. Y. IM, 'C. A.
and the opening of swimming contests.
A dual meet, which will likely 'be the
first of many, was held with the Read
ing Y. IM. C. A. in the local tanlk.
Another important start was made in
'basketball this season. The Harrisburg
'lndependent basketball five to play
games in the Chestnut street auditorium,
promises fast 'basketball. The year did
not see the stopping of any sport start
ed in former years. There were scores
of amateur 'baseball, football and
basketball teams in the city.

WANTS AFTER FA KM
May Purchase Syracuse Club to Train
The New York Giants may purchase
one of the International League clubs
for farming-out purposes, in order to
save its large lists of young players
who otherwise would have to be turned
loose upon some minor league organiza
tion when the season begins in the ma
Several of the major league' clubs
have this idea iu mind, and that was
the reason that Manager Muggins, of
•St. 'Louis, and Manager Herzog, of Cin- !
cinnati, put in bids for the Buffalo club
of the International League. The new I
rule restricting clubs to 21 men means!
that they will have to turn several
players loose who are really good
enough to be grabbed up by the Class !
AA clubs, which includes the Interna
tional League, the American Associa
tion and the Pacific Coast Leagues.
If the (limits acquire the Syracuse
club it is likely that Manager McG raw :
will see that George Wiltse, who has!
been unconditionally released, will get !
the job as manager.

JOE SHUCRUE A WINNER
ON POINTS OVER WHITE
I»ew York Boxer's Jabbing and Coolness
Earn Him a Victory Over Fast Chi
cago Boy—White Had Two Rounds
to His Credit it
New York, Dec 30.—Young Shu
grue, of this city, won on points frotu
Charlie White, of Chicago, iu a 10-
round bout at the Madison Square Gar
ilen here last night. With the exceip
tion of the first round, which was a
ilra«, and the eighth and last stanzas,
which went to White, Shugrue was tho
aggressor and landed telling blows.
\\iiite towards the end of the fight
fought with desperation. Outclassed
during the early rounds, the Chicago
boxer made a rally in the closing min
utes of the battle, but Shugrue, with
the tight carefully stowed iu liis favor,
sidestepped his wild bull-like rushes ami
came to no harm.
During tho first round both boxers
felt the other out. A few jabs, fake at
tempts at swings and clinches were all
the bout was fruitful of. Then Shu
grue started in the second fracas. The
speedy Joe shot lightling-like left jabs
to the uncovered face of White. The
Intter winced at the rapid stinging
blows. White retaliated with slashing
rights to the body. The local boy kept
constantly shooting in little taps to
White that angered the Chicagoau. It
was Shugrue who led all the way in
this round. The third stanza was but
a repetition of the second. Shugrue
kept ju.bbing, his opponent sidestepping
his swings, which only cleaved the alf,
and again retired to his corner leading
in the tight. And so the fight continued
until the eighth round, when White sur
prised the spectators by his game rally.
Springing from his corner like a ti
ger, Whitep ounced upon Shugrue. His
whirlwind rights shook the New York
boxer's frame: his left jabs rocked
Shugrue's head. He tried to produce
a "haymaker," but Shugrue was calm
and again sidestepped the wild, frantic
rushes. This roun.l was undoubtedly
White's. Shugrue held the Windy City
boy at his distance in the ninth. The
last round proved Shugrue a complete
master of the situation, although White
was the leader. The tight was Shu
grue's. He fought harder, displayed
better judgment and proved cool and
collected under the most trying circum
