NEWS OF INTEREST FROM FAR AND NEARS
I Cubs and White Sox
By L. It. BLANCHARD
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Chicago, June 13.-If F. F. Mitch
ell were an M. D. this sometimes hu
man race would soon become a queer
looking thing. For Fred F., bossc
supremo of the Chicago Cubs, be
lieves in revolution rather than evo
lution for getting results. If what
lie does to the Cubs is a criterion
he would, as a surgeon, shift head
for feet, hands for hair and give the
ears an occasional tryout as legs
That's his style.
The Cubs were touted as natural
born, hereditary leaders of the Na
tional league this season. The tout
ing didn't take for more than a week.
There was some ill luck and a little
-a very little --bum playing by the
Cubs. Then the team began to lose
standing, at home, abroad and es
pecially in the percentage tables. An
eastern trip resulted in a string of
losses so that the Cubs quickly de
scended into the second division and
old neighbors began to gossip about
Thus far this year Sgt. Bill Kille
fer looks like about 95'/ of the
$100,000 the stockholders have ex
pended for players in late years. Sgt.
Alexander has been tuff-lucked out
right; Turner Barber, former BIalti
more outfielder, began to forget how
to hit when the pitchers began to re
mnember how to throw, and Chuck
Wortman, priceless shortstop, went
back to the minors for a price.
Commander Mitchell has gone
through his lineup a dozen times
since the season opened, put in new
gears and then the old ones again.
Still the engie sounds rather sour.
But Mitchell hasn't quit hoping and
believing. He has the pitchers
when they finally get to going con
sistently-and he has a shortstop
and an ordinarily good non-star out
field. There is a belief the Cubs
will rise again.
Well, anyway, Chicago has a
league leader in the Whlite Sox,
doomed by the winter leaguers to the
second division just as cocksurely as
the Cubs were awarded first place in
the other league.
Williai)s "Kid" Gleason is given
most of the credit for the showing.
It is the "KIid's" way to fight for
every ball ganle and he has put some
of his spirit into his men.
At the same time the Sox were
more fortunate with their pitchers
than they had hopeu. Eddie Cicotte
is going inl 1917 style. "Red" Faber
is coming back. "Lefty" Williams
has discovered new strength to take
him all the way through a ball game
and there are the youngsters Shel
lenback and Kerr, the latter left
'handed. Gleason also is confident
of making a genuine major leaguer of
Grover Lowdermilk, one of the in
and-outers of the nmajors
Back of these hurlers Glenson has
a depenudably fielding set of infield
ers and gardeners. Added to that
somne of those fellows certainly call
"bust" that hall. The whole thing
is captained by Eddie Collins, well
known memiber of the marine corps.
The Sox so far have been a lot more
dangerous ,than a glow worm in a
With the Subs expected to come

out in front Chicago is a baseball
city again. The fans haven't had
much chance. The weather has been
somewhat obstinate and tho3e who
pawned their bennies on March 21
could hardly sit out in the open for
a two hour game. But the first two
warm Sundays of the year saw 44,

[MBAGII ES CHECK U. S,
(Dy United Press.)
Washington, June 13.--A tremen
dous truck shortage is fast develop
ing in Europe, because of embargoes
ki motor vehicles, now in force in
England, France and Italy, says Sec
retary C. C. Hanch of the National
Automobile Chamber of Commerce.
Hanch, who has just returned from
a four months' investigation tour of
Europe, declared that European
markets could "use up every Ameri
can car and truck now available over
domestic requirements," if the em
bargoes were lifted.
So strong is the demand there, he
said, that second-hand cars are sell
ing at twice the figures paid for
them, when new, a few years ago.
"Importers of American cars
abroad," Hanch stated, "have made
strong pleas for raising the embar
goes now that the war is over. But
the only country to act is Great Brit
ain, who has permitted importation
of one-fourth 6f that imported in
1913. France and Italy have taken
no action. It-is worth noting that
there is only one car for every 400
people in France, one for every 225
in Great Britain, while there is one
for every 18 in this country."
Hanch declared that the automo
bile industry has greatly expanded in
Europe, because of the many fac
tories which have sprung up during
the war. He said, however, that the
plants will never be able to compete
with the American product, because
they are not designed nor are the
workers trained for producing in
"mass production." And although
these factories have much increased
the supply of cars and trucks abroad
they are far from enough.
Exports of American motor car
manufacturers are at the rate of
about $125,000,000 a year, which is
about ten per cent of their total
business, and with the lifting of em
bargoes this amount, will show a
material increase, said Hanch.
BOUND OVER FOR TRIAL.
R. J. Johnson, charged with the
burglary of S. J. Butler's room and
the theft of two Liberty bonds and
a revolver, was held for trial in dis
trict court at a hearing yesterday in
Justice Buckley's court.

Notes From India
(Cuses of Families.
Every decade of foreign rule in
India witnesses an increase in the
number of famines; and the tragic
and unknown fact is that these
famines are not necessarily caused
by the failure of rains, but because
the people do not have money
enough to buy food. India produces
sufficient food to last. it through
long periods of drought; but even
in the worst famine years food is
shipped from the country, or held
at exhorbitant prices. The masses
are unable to meet these inflated
William J. I)igby, a noted British
economist, has given a significant
list of famines in India during the
past few centuries. From the 11th
to the 18th centuries, fourteen fam
ines occurred, lbut all were local, and
the people of one province could bor
row from another during a food
shortage. During British rule in the
18th century, eight famines oc
curred, four of which were wide
spread. From 1800 to 1875, there
were thirteen widespread famines,
claiming a death toll of approxi
mately 6,500,000. From 1876 to
1900, eighteen widespreaid, devas
tating famines swept the land, claim
ing 26,000,000 human lives.
Commenting upon these famines,
the Indian industrial commission, in
a report recently published by the
British government, confirms these
figures and quotes from Digby thus:
"Stated roughly, famines and scarci
ties have been four times as numer
ous during the last thirty years of
the 18th century as they were one
hundred years earlier, and four times

Baseball Winning Streaks.
The greatest strinlg of consecultive
victories ill tile big leaguees goes lback
to the very beginnling of professional
baseball. It was on the 14t I of
June, 1870, just forty-nine years ago
conime tolmorrow, when the winning
streak of the Cincinnati Ited Stock
ings, which had lasted lhrough a
year and at half, wasi finally brokoll
in a close gaie at Birooklynll with tile
Atlantics. The score of the conltest
was Brooklyn 8, ('incinnati 7. The
game went into the elevenlth inning,
when the Reds put two runs over the
pan and seemingly had victory ill
their grasp. In their half tile Atlan
tics scored three rulls, and ended tihe
Itedland bunch's long run withoul
a defeat. Incidentally, it was in this
pastime that the first double play ill
baseball history was pulled off.
Tile Ited Stoc(klings turned lprofes
sional in 1869, and started their sea
son by defeating the Cincinnati Grleat
Westerns. They then started out on
tour, defeating tile Fort Wayne cilub,.
the Buffalo Niagaras, the Cleveland
Forest Citys, the 'Rochester Alerihs,
the Troy lHayimakers, the Allbany Na
tionals, tile Mutuals of Springfield,
Mass., the Boston Lowells, t he
Brooklyn Atl:antics, the loston Tri
M1Iountain;, Hlarvard, thlie tBrooklyn
Mutuals, the lBrooklyn Atlantics, the
Brooklyn Eckfords. the Philadelplhia
Olympics, the Philadelplhia Athletics
and defeated every other team they
net. The only tie game was one
against the Lansingburg, N. Y.
Unions, afterward the Troy HIaymak
ers, which ended with a scosne of 17
to 17. This drawn battle was the
only break in the Cincinnati winning
streak until tile Reds were defeated
in Brooklyn the following year. 1)ur
ing the remainder of the 1869 season
the Reds made a trip to the Pacific
coast, stopping at St. Louis to de
feat the Unions and the Empires.
Four gaines were played in San Fran
cisco and on the return trip the Reds
bested clubs at Omaha, Neibraska
City, Quincy and Indianapolis.
In 1870 the victory flushed 1ied
Stockings started the season with a
southern junket, defeating the best
clubs of New Orleans, and stopping
at Memphis to administer a 100-2
defeat to the Orientals. After sev
eral gamies at home the Reds started
another eastern invasionl, and tile
winning streak cracked at Brooklyn.
When the Atlantics got their num
ber the'Reds had won fifty-six gamnes
with one tie, had travelled nearly
12,000 miles, and had made 2,395
runs, as against 574 by their oppon
The major league winning streak
record was set up in 1884 by the
Providence club, which annexed 20
straight gamies. The modern record
was set up by the Giants in 19014,

tests in the National lieague, while'
