Gained Natural Prominence. He is Harold Throckjnorton, and for 1 I more than a year he;ha�.been blazing 'a mcteurlike'path across the courts of .\merica, having become a national figure when he engaged in a patriotic tour of the country last year with Fred B. Ale.vander, .Miss Molla Bjur-sted and Miss Mary Browne. During this tour . Throckmorton's play forced the counfjy to recognize hini as one of the real stars of the game and predict for him a future as brilliant as that of Williams. .\ short time ago he was in action on the fast clay courts of the Terrace club of Flatbush. in Brooklyn. Though this was early in the season his play against Alexander showed real championship caliber. Has Physical Requirements. Throckraorten ha.s all the physical requirements of a great tennis player. He Is tall and rangy. Ho Is lithe on his feet as a panther and can cover ground with the great speed necessary in playing an effective net game. He is strong enough to endure the most gruelling matches. His physical gualitications are well balanced by his mental capabilities. Throckmorton thinks quickly and readily, co-ordinates his perception with his play, his liraln and muscles working in perfect harmony on the court. This Is one of the prime requisites of a groat tenuis player. He must take in every situation, every possibility instantly and then be able to meet It physically. Has No Weakness. It can not be said that Throckmorton Is weak at any department of the game. His service is excellent, his driving hard and accurate and his volley game exceeding fast. He plays either tlie net or lines with equal facility and covers an immense amount of territory on the courts. Combined with it all he has youth, supreme confidence in himself, without conceit and ambition to be the national champion. Now York.-College baseball players of class have the chance of a lifetime now to muko something of their ability. Dig league scouts, slipping from the usual practice of combing the minor leagues before paying attention to the college phenoms, are taking the other track now and are visiting the colleges first. The Athletics, the Senators, the Cardinals, the Indians, the Tigers, and the Pirates already have put emissaries Into the field to look things over. As a result of these early Investigations of promising big league material one fine-looking prospect already is about to be signed to a contract by the Cleveland club. He is Capt. K. I. June, captain of the West Virginia team, and its star hurler. June is recommended highly by no loss a person than Charlie Hickman, former big leaguer and now mayor of Morgantown, the city where the West Virginia school Is situated. June has beefti the leading hurler of the Mountaineer team for tho last three years. In his first year at the university he won ten games and lost one for his school. Laat year ho was given the backing of one of tho poorest teams in the history of the school, yet he won a majority of games in which he participated. This year Juno has started on a glorious path. Already he has vanquished Arrny and Syracuse, in addition to other strong teams! Cleveland has the call on his services, according to word from Morgan-town." hut other clubs are after him. If he decides to sign he will go to some club immediately after the close of the season at the university. Other schools are being combed just as dlllgqntly. And the young fellows win get more attention this summer than has been the custom. The lack of big league material in the minors, together with the loss o! many players by tho majors, will make every big league manager think long and hard before deciding to give up any kind of a ball player. player of tompornment-Cobb is adjudged right and the teammate wrong. Cobb never loses an argument. This has built up on enmity that has been disastrous. Players on the club-how many 1 do not know, but enough to destroy tho team's efficiency-really hate Cobb and Jennings. Sam Driven Out. Sam Crawford was driven out of the majors because he could not got along with Cobb, and therefore with Jennings. Yet few will say that Wa-hoo Sam was through as a major leaguer, and certainly none can say that he is a hard man to handle. Some players say the Detroit Tigers will never win until Jennings Is ousted, and Cobb Is sold. Tliey argue that Cobb more than counteracts his great ballplaylng by his trouble making. To bo sure, enemies of Cobb and Jennings talk thus, but the very fact that they are enemies proves that something is wrong In Detroit, that the Tiger house must undergo an energetic cleaning, and that tho team's spirit must be completely changed before pennants can be won.-Los Angeles Tribune. People's Forum lleve If other citizens would respond to tho call as the Mayor and Com-missioner Grace have done thero would be no ball tor sheep stealers, horse thieves and chicken skotchers. 1 say again, call the hall, ho men, honorable to the case, teach the principles of citizenship to the rising generation and also to the hardened old thief who would spoil the life of our new generation.

The reason? Some say It's Ty Cobb; others blame Hughey Jennings. Bui those who give the answer-that Is, those who know whereof they speak- always work up to one conclusion, and that is this-friction on the Detroit hall club ruins an otherwise great team. Jennings has the greatest ballplayer in the game today. He has remarkable hitting strength. Defensively, both his Infield and his outfield are above the average. His catching staff should give lilm nothing to worry about, but this season it has. Stanage was Injured. Spencer could not come to terms, reported late and has been slowly rounding Into form. Tho real story of tho Spencer trouble is told in one word-friction. Too Much Friction. For years Jennings has had Cobb, has had unusual hitting strength, and bus had a good Infield, good outfield and good catching staff. The blame for defeat has been placed on the pitchers, but that does not end the ar-gdinont. The truth Is this-Detroit has not done as well as It should, and there's a reason. From hallplayor after ballplayer I have hoard tho same story-two or throe times from men on the Detroit club, but moatly from other players who were closo friends to inombors of the club. Always the story has boon that strife oil the club has killed the team's spirit. The story runs soiue-thlng like this: Ty Cobb and Jonnliigs are th* elog-est of pals. What Cobb sayg ii law.
