lug. Lavender was right He pitch
ed -the best game of any Cub twirler
this year, and at the end felt no bad
effects from his exertion. He will be
able to take his regular turn and
back up Cheney.
Evers still kept his right-handed
line-up in the fray, but they were so
helpless against Nap Ruckerthat
they couldn't have hit the pike if they
had been a bunch of Tom show ac
tors stranded in a tank town. Xieach
scratched an infield founder, Bres
nahan caromed a single off Smith's

taps formed the Cub hit total.
Cleveland went into second place
by walloping Boston, again; Vean
Gregg holding the Red Sox to three

boss saying he would make no de
cision until after a meeting of the
Brown directors tomorrow. If Owner
Hedges kicks hard enough, and
claims Stovall is necessary to the
-success of the team, George will
draw a fine and light suspension. If
Hedges is weak-kneed Stovall will
have to get out of the league.
