GRAND CIRCUIT POOR ETAp YOUNGSTERS FOR CONNIE'S MACK'S TEAM Manager Maek of the Athletics has purchased Jack Nahora, the twirler ot the Newman (Gar) team of the Georgia-Alabama league. Nabors is the youngster who broke the world's record when he pitched a 13-inning liltlesg game against Talleaga, and did not allow a man to reach first 'base until the twelfth inning. This game was played three weeks ago, and. caused every major league club to seek his release. After a spirited bidding contest, the Ath'etics got him for what ig said to be the highest price ever paid for a Class D minor league players. .Naborat is a right-handed pitcher; and was developed by Harry Mat; thews., who formerly caught in the Southern later managed Charleston bt the Southern Atlantic league. Matthews declares that he has the heat curve hall .he has ever Been in any minor league, and that there Is not, a pitcher In the land with belter control.

TONEY HAS A REAL FAST ONE Blim Sallee Says Red Pitcher Fears to Speed Loose St. Louis, Mo.. Sent. Fred Toney of, the Cincinnati Reds, who is now leading the National lea- gue pitchers, has more speed than any curver in the National league, ac- cording to Southpaw Harry Sallee of the Cardinals. Sallee made the state- ment at a fanning bee in the office of President Britton at Rohison Field, yesterday, and every member of the 3. Cardinal sciuad present agreed with 1 i Sallee, except Jack Roche, the tig md California backstop. Roche doubted the truth of Bailee's assertion, but was soon convinced by 1! those nresent that Sal's estimate of Eas-' Toney's speed is correct. j "Why doesn't Toney use some of that speed when he pitches against 1 us, if he has more speed thau any- queried Roche1. and "Why, say, replied Sallee, "if Toney ever cut loose at you with Mall his speed you'd think the whole 2 German army was after you. Toney and'doesn't use Ills fast ball because he can't control it. If he tried to throw one in this park the ball might drop on Sarah street, or knock down the grandstand. If Toney had control of 0 his fast one the Cubs ..would never have let him go. If he ahoula try to use it now, Charlie Herzog wouldn't be able' to find a catcher to work with him." said Hocne, "guess I'd better not ask him to let me see his fast one."

At least 5 per cent, of the names on the list are those of actual persons, but of persons who never got a dol- lar from the pool and never played those pools. SMITH IS WISE 'Seattle., Wash., Sept.'.
