White Sox Do Not Look

If Callahan's Team Runs One-tyvo-three It Will
Be Due to Superhuman, Work of Ed' Walsh.
Other Sporting Comment:
Just why the Chicago club is leadingp.the American League at pres
ent is considerable of a mystery. The White Sox have no license to be
there. If they run one, two, three this season, it will be due to super
human work by big Ed Walsh, the spitball king.
In the four-game series played against the Nationals last week, and
won by the Sox, the Chicago club did not appear any stronger than last

forcibly during the Chicago series.

It has been the consistent pitching ot
Groom and Johnson which has kept the
team up toward the top.
With the recent shake up, better re

The Mobile Register last Thursday
printed the following story: "The purpose
of Scout Mike Kahoe's visit to Mobile
has leaked out Kahoe was here with a
view to buying Dee Walsh But matters
took an unexpected turn and as a result
the Washington club scout departed with
4he deal called off1.
"Scout Kahoe was sent South for the
express purpose of looking at Walsh. He
wanted to buy him and asked Manager
Finn his terms for the hustling shortstop.
Mike placed a price on Walsh and In ad
dition asked the Senators for Pitcher
Akers. The deal was about completed
whereby Walsh would go to the American
League club at the end of the season,
but In the meantime Pitcher Akers work
ed for the Senators and pitched a one-bit
game. Manager Clark Griffith then wired
Scout Kahoe that any deal In which
Akers was .mixed up was off, but h
would give, some other pitcher. Manager
Finn wanted Akers and consequently
when the message was received he noti
fied Scout Kahoe that he wanted Akers
