Thumbnail for

the bitter partisanship between
admirers of the two Chicago
teams, the. Sox and Cubs, is hard
to understand. The. feeling on
the part of the fans out at 3ath
street seems more intense against
' the Cubs than is that displayed
I by. West Siders against Comis
Ikey's hired men. A good examj
ple of this was furnished at Sun
day's game on the South Side,
when about 30,000 rooters were
present. When the scoreboard
showed the Cubs were two runs
ahead of St- Louis there was no
1 enthusiasm. But when two
markers were "strung up for the
Cards there was plenty of cheer
ing., mixed with jeers against the
West Siders. v
And when St. Louis went into
lead everybody seemed happy.
This feeling is not so marked on
the part of, the fans who pay ad
missions out at' Murphy's ball
yard, "and some- of them pull for
theVSox. It's a" funny proposition,
but just what makes baseball the
; great game 'it is.
1 Heinie Zimmerman seems to
. Have found himself at the first
darner of .the Cub infield. ..The
doughty Dutchman made two
singles and a triple yesterday.

' A concerted effort to secure ad
ditional funds for the expenses of
the American team that will at
tend the Olympic games in Swe
den is being planned "by the
American Olympic committee in
Jew York. At a meeting yesterday-
a special appeal wks prepared
$o"all'nieTica'iis"pta'rt'TcUlariy to
athletic organizations, to aid in
securing money to make the pay
ment on the steamship Finland,
which will take the Yankee ath
letes abroad.
Christy Mathewsbn fell before
the lowly Bostons yesterday on
his first time out for 'the season,
Johnny King contributed to
his team's 3 to 0 victory with a
home run. ' l
Ty Cobb gave another exhibi
tion of temperament yesterday.
When the Tigers reached town
Tyrus was given a room at the
hotel overlooking the railroad
tracks. He k(cked, but it did no
good, and the star batsman stay
ed out of the Sox-Detroit game,
going to the park in . streec
clothes. Last night he packed his
extra shirt and toothbrush and
beat it home for Detroit. Hughey
Jennings gave it out that Ty was
suffering fro ma sore throat, but
it was a different variety of sore
ness. ' v
Flame Delhi will probably
make his big league debut this
afternoon, with the Tigers as his
opponents. A sweet little job for
a young man to tackle.
Eddie Plank must have been
visiting the spring of eternal
youth. Connie ' Maqk's veteran
southpaw held the Highlanders
to one run while his pals were
grabbing off four. x
