Grifllth's decision > took the tlUe of woTld?ss champion, from Wol-gast atColma and. gave }t to' Willie Ritchie on a foul-.blow.'. ' :  (By Harvey T. Woodruff) When the Amateur Athletic Union hung the "Indian sign" on Jim Thorpe bf Carlisle because he played pvofes-Blonal baseball at FayettevlUe, N. C;, In 1910 for a salary of |125 per month. It disqualified as on amateur the mail whom the King of Sweden characterised at the Olympic games as the "greatest athlete In the world." To most pea'sons the blow would be considerably softened by the fact that the edict opened the way to Thorpe for a professional bas-eball career with A5e New York Giants at a reported salary of $5000'per season. Whether Thorpe will earn a place alongside the great Indian ball players. Chief Bender of the Philadelphia Atbletlosi Chief Meyers- of the'-N^w York Giants, his new teammate, and the lamented Sockalexis of the old Clevielands, or will drop out of the diamond glare after a period ot painful mediocrity, will be one of the questions for the season of 1913 to unravel. �� �  Thorpe, in the activity which ulti-mately brought about his downfall after he had won the highest honors ot the amateur,athletic world, showed himself an innocent child of the forest, so tO'speak. He neglected several of the amenities which usually are observed by "amateurs'* while gathering compensation during the summer. Thorpe actually did not-play under an assumed name. This little oversight proved more leadily the heinous crime ctjvged against him, that 9f "accepting money for athletic services." The announcement of Thorpe's professionalism has stirred, .both in^ thfs country and In Europe, more aympar-thy than oenaure, although ^aif^r nouncement naturally was humlJl^U^' to the Amerlcai" Olympic comnjlsslon-crs. But Thorpe's naive statement that seve-ral other college men i^aln^t whom he had played as a member; of. the CarUBle athletic team weife.ln the" same league caused a pricking" up ears. Thorpe; refused to neveal .their identity and the wily whites had. trifled ^wlth their.'family cognomens so that other Identification impossible. � �  "� �  Thorpe is a Sad.and Fox Indian and lived with' his parents on a,rfarm at Keokuk Falls; 0|[l,a., until an, Indian-agentlJ IwrSuaded^Ws parents 1fO send' him to the Caa-Hsle schoolj On the Jfarm Thoi^ had, developed .a magnt flcent physique, sfantiing over six feet and weighing 170 to 180 pounds, and, true to frontier literature, he was '^straight as an arrow." At Carlisle,! 'Thorpe immediately Jumped Into the^oreground of ath-. iletlcsi- HebeoameaJbaseball, basketball and football player and a wonderr ful all-roimd perform-er in the track and ifleld cvents..i' Carlisle's defeat of Harvard In 1911 by a score of 18 to 15, was due principally to the great play of the Oklahoma Indian. "When the American team was picked lor the Olympic games, Thorpe was one of the first candidates named. An athlete who could put the shot over 42 feet, hurl the discus 125 feet or more, clear the bar in th* high Jump at t-n elevation over ^ix feet, and "reel off the 100 yards in even time, with accomplishments of almost equal; value In the other events of the ^antathlon and decathlon, was a formidable contender. Thorpe Justified all the prediction, and won both these events from world athletes. Then because he had received a few hundred dollars for playing professional baseball, money which he did not actually need, as the family is comparatively wealthy, Thorpe lost the miniature Viking ship and the bust of the King of Sweden which he had received as prizes at Stockholm. There was somer question whether, these prizes legally could b� taken from Thorpe, as the inveatigation of his amateur standing came long after the time limit prescribed for protests. But. Thorpe did not interpose any technicalities nor any objections. He stolidly accepted the decree of the A. A. Ui, and returned his trophies to that body. They are already on their way to Sweden, for disposition. With the New Ydi-k Giants, Thorpe will receive a oareful grooming as a 'professional baseball player fromy| Manager McQraw. If promise is ,?!^hoWn, McGraw is satisfied to wait ioriPssults, and "Kiorpe will be nursed iAclfiS carefully. He Will not be spoil ^d'b'y being called upon too soon for ^leds of prowess which' the publio mig^t expect for Thorpe's, baseball record is only fair. If the Indian has latent posBibilitles they will be de-velo^d, and hie sensitiveness will not be unduly exposed to the jibes of critical bleacherltes. '% .  � �.�.�� -If Thorpe has not the attributes of a great player-and there seenls no, reason why Jic should not have them In abundance-he may be playfed soon er-than It If he'has real merit, to make the turnstile click ;faster while he' Is stiU so prominent In the public eys; 'But McGraw will not hurry the tilmBtilesif;he thinks Thoi-pe-will do fetter by waiting,  ��*.� Baseball fans-all lov�r9 ot sport-will hope to see Thorpe moke good. There is a certain amount of sentiment about an Indian, and, besides thai, the Carlisle player is such, a 'Spectacular figure and so splendid as an athlete-that he will carry the best wishes of even those fans who. look upon the New York Gianta as hated rivals. fajvious trainer and jockey I^U)-ED off tHe turf-UN-^ 'DER :SU8PICI0N SMLF - LOADING Far simplicity and quickness of operation, combined with ' accuracy of shooting i^d ease of handling, Winchester Self?
