Why when ha cuts loose at his hardest clip the ball bounces out of the catcher's mitt.' No one has been found who can hold him when he real- extends hiriiEelf. "He has shown h'is skill in the past when he faced tho-best batters on the Cub and De- troit teams when those teamn were champions, and when the Athletics went last Mendez has inore curves than any' pltchei-'in America, End if some Inventive genius could produce a whitening, process where-, by' we could get this fellow into the big .leagues he could win a pennant for'either tailend team in either'lea- gue." The above is the way "Pene" Conte, the-Cuban baeeball scribe who at- tended the world's series, larfs the pitching uowess of the black likening terror of the Island. Conte is backed up lu his statement by members of the champion teams have been going on winter tours to the island.

MARVELOUS SPEED Possessed by Packey is Shown in Workouts San Francisco. Nov. Mc- Farland gave the fans who watched him spar today at Joe Millett's gym- nasium a glimpse of his wonderful skill with the padded gloves. His short set-to with Willie Hitchey served to dis- close the marvelous speed possessed by McParliind. Ritchey is acknow- ledged to be by far the fastest scrap- jer.ln the four-round division, but ha was made to appear slow and amateur- ish by the crack'visitor'from the lake city.'' Packeys' judgment of distance, his method of forcing matters :he instant he comes out of a clinch and his clever defensive work caused nuch comment among the spectators, who could not resist the temptation to applaud when the three two-minute -ouuds were finished.
