i'', 1 who were accused of enteritis into
." World's Scries was a bitter disappointment to all real, genuine uportsmen.
i,"V" Xa Terdict or tne jury, tnc wild scenes vvnicn ioiiowcu in wie i-uuriruum,
th placing of thce accused and self-confessed fnKers on n pcilestai, wor
shiping them as abimed heroes, and the rule, sickly wanner In which the
affair was handled makes one wonder if It Is north while to stay on the
straight and narrow pnlli when It Is tm crowded
Last fall Eddie Cleottc confessed to his pntt In the affair, and two others
followed, Thekc confessions vveio made before a Special Grand Jury, but dur
ing this trial when the confessions were called for they were mluslng. Somebody
had stolen theta from the State's Attorney's office. Tho prosecution made
out a strong van. on insufficient evidence, but the defense spent huge sums of
money for legal talent to hurl wrenches Into the machiner und put the parade
out of step. This proved to be MKcessful.
Despite the fact that 01) per cent of the baseball fans In the Pnlted
.States bcllevo the men did not p!u their best in the seiies against Cincinnati,
they have been acquitted. It couldn't be proved that they deliberately made
rrors In the Held and that the pitchers deliberately threw ens bnllrt to hit
and the butters Ignored hlt-rnd-run sign nnd usually failed dismally In the
pinches, so the "Scotch verdict" was returned. The pin cm believe they
,baT scored a victory.
Perhaps the have legall . Hut when it comes to niitlflng the real
baseball fnn, the fan who knows the difference, it will take more than a.
Terdict from a jury which holds n lelebwitlon afterward with the accused
mtn, sings "Hall, the gang's nil here," und spends most of the night in a
cafe. According to reports, the jurors felt as much pleased over the verdict
a the accused players.
From now on our idea of an innocent man is u dishonest ball player
who gets caught.
When vUlting the training camps of the big league clubs last spring it
was common gossip about the work of the Hlnrl; So In the 1010 and 1020
easons. Thcie was no secret about It. and the players all hoped thnt tho
accused men would get their just deserts. Nobmlv hud the slightest idea
that they were innocent, nnd they won't believe it now. Itecause there was
no law In Illinois to coer the ence does not mean that the men were unjustly
accused nnd were very much abused. It means the wore lucky to get off
without n sentence.
5 TILL, xchtn one ieali:ri that in llltnon tiny hair a Governor
acciuril of embezzlement, gunmen taking tnigit practice in the
strectt, banks being robbed of hundred of thouttmdi m broad dagUght,
United States maits looted of millions and hold-up win getting io tired
of their regular trade that they noir irn oifirr firight trains, the
charges against the seven ball players teemed too tritiK and chlldiih
to be considered seriously. Shades of Jesse James'
Judge Landis Takes a Firm Stand
FIS Indeed fortunate that Organized Baseball was able to place a mnn
like Judge K. M. I.nndls at the head of Its affairs, for it now is up to
the Judge to handle the cases of the athletes after their court victory. Al
ready two have said they would seek reinstatement, und the chances nre that
others will attmpt the same thing
Judge I.andls lost no time In taking n positive stand in the matter. Soon
1 nik4 Uli: HI'IIVl "IIP HHIIilllll.MI . ' M...I,
ft' verythfng c'.enr and closes the major
"Itegardless of the xerdict of Juries," said the Judge, "no plnyer thnt
throws a ball game, no player that entertains ptopotnls or promises to throw
a gams, no player that sits In a conference with u bunch of crooked players
C" and gamblers where ways nnd means of throwing gamea arc discussed, and
dares not tell his club nbout It. will ever play In professional baseball.
"Just keep in mind that, regurdless of xcnllfts of juries, baseball is
entirely competent to prote.'t Itself against the tridts both inside and out
side the game."
That statement seems to covei everything Judge I.nndls eldently hns
made an invefctlgntion on his own hook, collected a lot of private evidence
and knows better than any one else how the gamb ers worked with the
- J players before the grand expose He is determined to keep the game clean,
and the work could not be pltu ed in better hands
As for reinstating the p'n.ieis after the verdict of the jury, It might be
well to remember that Ilenn Kauff has not et been recognized.
It would not be at ull surprising If some unscrupulous promoter would
have the effrontery to attempt to exploit tho discredited nthlet-s through In
dependent booking. It Ik doubtful If the public would stand for It.
LEGALLY, the case is all washed up. The player and the gamblers
have hern ficrd, but' that does not clear them in the eyci of the
baseball fans. Then standing is just the same ai the day the confes
sions iceie published.
Lav Tendlcr Has Scored Nineteen Knockouts
T)LEASn tell me through nur columns," writes Mcr Trankel, of At
X lantlc City, "how many knockouts Lew Tndler has scored since he hns
been boxing. I claim he has more than fifteen, nnd nnother says he hasn't
more than eight."
Tendler never was known ns a knockout artist, but in his career he hns
topped exactly nineteen opponents On the night of August 12 he hopes
to raise the total to twent.
Lew nlwa.xs was clever, depending more upon a superb defense nnd his
, boxing to gain decisions oxer his opponents He learned early In the gnrac
that this would prolong his efTicrlvinesq nnd suxe him fioin broken hands.
Then, after he had waded through the bantam and featherweight divisions
and was ready for the lightweights, he begun to put mer some knockout
wallops. It wns then thnt he gained fnmc and became tho recognized con
tender for the lightweight title.
In 1014 Tendler knocked out Freddy Halfllng in four rounds. The
next year Freddy Dlgglus went to sleep In four rounds. There was nothing
doing in 1010, but in 1017 he stopped Jack Itufcso in five stanzas. Thus In
four years he scored exactly three knockouts.
Business was better in 1018 nnd his firt knockout victim was red-hended
Tommy Toughey, who flopped In the fourth Pete Hartley nnd Frankle
Nelson also wcie stopped in the fourth, Frunklo Itrltt in the third and the
referee stopped his bout with Prnnkie Callahnn In the ninth In 1010
George Chnne was rocked to sleep in the first. Stnnlev Ynkiiin in the fourth,
George Erne in two and Johiun No en In two
Last ni he scortd kiKuknuts oer Allentnwn Dundee in two frames,
Dick I)e Snunders In thiei Stnnlex llinekle In six, (ienrge I'npin in six,
Frankle Callnhnii in (he, Eddie Kolh in the and Chick Slinler In seven
This makes a total of ninetou.

TENDLER EVEN BET

Good Chance of Winning

Delnnco, N. .1., Aug. 4 "Hvjic"
Igoe, veteran boxing critic. New ork
sports writer and cartoonist, lias been
nt Lew Tcndler's training quarters here
for three davs, and he is enthused over
the challenger's chances for his bout
with the champion. Denny Leonard, at
the Phillies' Dnll Park, tomorrow nijrht
n week. Mr. Igoe left todav for New
York where he will watch Leonard In
"Tendler looks like nn even bet to
me," said Igoe today. "He is the best
of the boxers In tho running for Leon
ard's title, and In his workouts here he
has .showed me thnt he i-tnnds a good
chance of winning the championship.
Lew's southpaw wallop Is u peach, and
if he connects with Leonard I fear thnt
Denny will go down and out."
Tendler put In nnother dnv Indoors
because of the rainy weather nnd he did
nil of his training In the afternoon.
Tho inclement weather kept him off the
rood. In the afteinoon the contends
went through his usual rope-skipping,
shadow-boxing and bug-punching
stunts while he nlso boxed five thrce
First Lew took on Eddie O'Kecfe,
featherweight, for a round, then fol
lowed n round with I'ntsy Wallace, fly
weight, and Tendler finished up with n
thne-ioiind hair-raising scrimmage with
.Tuck Palmer, welterweight. Palmer has
been giving Tendler borne real tough
The respective wives of Tendler and
his mnnnger, Phil fllnsfiman, were nt
the quarters esterday afternoon. Mrs.
Tendler believes her hubby is in the
best shape of his career, and "Certain
ly, I think inv Lew will be the champion
on August 12." she said, and asked
immediately, "Doesn't Lew himself say
thnt he will win by n knockout?"

By GRANTLAND RICE
Of Xebo's lonely mountain
This side of Jordan's shore,
I know so very little
I Kill not mention more.

Urookes, Wilding, Klngncotc, Parke,
Hopcr-linrrett, Uoutit und other grent
stars of the past?
The Old Doe with the enduring RcyHie
linn the answer. A new order wns
needed so the younger generation were
called upon, not so much to win this
time as to get the needed experience
for future fields. Each side may have
another Urookes or nnother Wilding
in tho mnklng just ns this pair had
to fill tho enp when the Dohertys had
completed their run.
Tho English Captain
TtTAX WOOSMAN, the English Davis
" Cup captnin, Is n remarkable
product. lie Is one of the best nll
nround nthletes in tho kingdom where
tennis was only part of his program.
As n star footbnlllrt and it fine cricket
plnycr he was unable to give ns much
time to tennis ns he might have done,
but when the Macedonian shout went
up for Davis Cup candidates io sus
pended operations in other lines to give
his entile nttcntion to tennis. If he
had made tennis his main sport nnd
recreation from the start he might to
dny have been another Urookes.
A COHUICSFONDEXT requests in
r formation upon this point "Hns
any other country ever developed as
mnny youthful stars as the United
States?" n Is not written In the
records If nny other country ever has.
