hirdct kind of fighting until the diamond

This will be the ninth renewal of the
annual struggle between the National and

an1 every game was a shutout. The
White Sox of the American League beat
the Cubs In ISO, the Cubs vanquished
the Detroit In 1907 nnd l'JOS, and the

An exhaustive supply of opinion and
calculation has been wiltten concerning
the chances of this ear's tennis. Kery

Whli h team will show the sttonger In

ni'ire I'Jlclent nianagement? In the com
rarlsons of the clubs Individually and
cnllutlwly there Is one pliaw that has
bun little ineiitlcJbed. It Is this- What
the Giants have done and what the Hus
ton have don" In winning the pen
nant and stamping themselves as the
bet in their own companv has been
K.ilnst an entirely dlffeient set of players.
We know only that the Hostons fiotn
April to October prove I themselves the
upetlnis of the Athletics, who last year

th" (Hants to deprive Hum of their base

it aiies, the tlguies themselves n-e of
Uti Ui alu" as a lusls of comnirlson.
Yutr ,n and year out the two leagues are
ati'int on a par In playing strength, nnd It
I- fail to assume that a single player
could do about equally wII In either
league Itut whether the pitchers of one
league are as good as a whole as those
cf the other or the batters as good is a
matter of conjecture. It Is dllHcult to say
hat th" pennant winner In one league
rould do in a whole scarnn of playing In
tl.e other league, but the world's series
Is the only feasible wav there Is of ar
riving at a piiitlnlly satisfactory conclu
Hon on the subject.
The prefi-ience among managers Is to
win the pennant early enough to permit n
breathing spell before th" big series. This
!s true, although It may be mentioned
that In ICOd the White Sox were hard
ruehed to the tlnlsh, nnd then went In and
cleaned up the Cubs, who had captured
their pennnnt a considerable time before
the end of their season. However, both
the New Vorks nnd Hostons have been
ure of their pennant for at least ten days
nd will lock horns with the advantage of
a reasonable period of relaxation, a red
lonahle period In which to devote all their
tlms to getting primed for each other and
without any further worry aliout winning
their own pennant.
Therefore both teams ought to bo In
tiptop condition when the hII rings on

Importance of the encounter.
The tuning up processes this year have
been under similar conditions for both
teams. In that reg.ttd the Hostons won't
have one advantage which the Athletics
did have. Last year and the year be
fore there was an Interim between the
tlnlsh of the American league and that
of the National league, an Interim of a
week, which the Athletics, guided by the
astute Mack, employed by tackling a
team of all stars, th-: very best players
that could be banded together from the
American League. The best pitchers nnd
batters were pitted against the Athletics
nnd the latter had the great benefit of
a week of practice ngalnt a team which
made them play their best, and which
fitted them for the stlffet sort of light
