Hugh llezdek, the Pirate chieftain, likes the squeeze, and his men worked it successfully eight times during the year. When Jimmy Callahan was the Corsair commander the PiUsburgs got away with the play twice. Put Moran's Phillies worked the squeeze on their opponents twice, ami so did Christy .VlaUiewson's Hods. Ceorge Stullings' Braves used the play once, but the Superbas. under Wflberi Robinson; the Giants, under .John Mc-(Iraw, and the Chicago Cubs, under Fred. Mitchell, nad no use for this scheme as a means 01 acquiring runs, and never once tided it. The only double squeeze of the year in .the National league was worked by the Phillies^ at the Polo grounds in the sixth inning on April 27, and became a double squeeze because Jeff Tesreau fumbled to the ground in picking up Ctoorge Whitted's bunt. Bancroft, had scored by the lime the ball reached the New York pitclrer, and Stock followed Davy homo when he saw Tesrean on the turf-a wild throw front a MUiiiff posture making Milton's voyage to the plate easier. Huggins' Cardinals were the only National league team to win games with the squeeze, gaining a victory over the Pirates on July �( and one over Hie Reds on September ft. On the first named .date Gonzales squeezed Cruise in from third, and on the last mimed date .Meadows did-the bunting and Gonzales the running. The opposing batteries were Jacobs and Schmidt and Toney and Wingo. Bill Donovan's Yankees worked the squeeze seven .more times last season than did all the eight National league teams. They got away with the trick -S Umes, winning three games with the play and saving themselves one shutout. The triumphs were over Washington, on April I!'; over ifostou. on June 2U, ;md over Detroit, on July 22, the three opposing butteries being Johnson and Alnsmith, Leonard and Thomas and Klunkc and Stallage. Maisol ami Miller collaborated in the squeeze play that defeated the Senators.'

The Chicago gladiator, about whom morte particulars wilj be available shortly, is another of the Harrison style. That much can be banked on for it comes from an official Chicago source. The fact that he met Mike Gibbons and gave a good account of himself is enough. Ross continues to train religiously for the coming bout. He is going to win, he says, but iChe should happen to lose he will have no alibi to offer. Meanwhile negotiations are being carried on for Tait's appearance here early in March. So the fans have two great mills coming up. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? TWO "Y" TEAMS WILL INVADE RAY-MOM D TONIGHT The basketball* teams of the local "Y" with a gnud crowd of rooters will embark this evening for Raymond, where the return match will be played.

Raymond are without a doubt laying low as never before for this game which if they lose quells their championship aspirations, - and if they win gi*cs them an even chance with the local "Y." The local juniors have been showing plenty of pep so far1 this season and have already won two games for the sugar town aggregation, and are going down to repeat these performances tonight, expecting nevertheless a stiff'er game than ever. v ? ? v v ?
