trip of the Cubs, the better. The
team went away fighting Sot the lead.
It Teturns, not in the lead; and not
fighting.
Murphy met the- team in Boston
and it began to win. What psycho
logical effect the president had, we
don't know. But it is a cinch his
presence would be a lot more ef
fective if he'd buy a couple of pitch
ers and carry them along with him.
When he pays railrpad fare for some
of his present heavers, he is being
mulcted for excess baggage. That
Cub aggregation is not a bad outfit,
except for the pitching, and it can be
made effective. But the repair work
must be done quickly. Otherwise the
players are going to lose interest.
That is natural. The infield Is good
and so is the outfield. The catchers
need no boosting from anybody.
It's pitchers that are needed, and
needed badly.
Walter Johnson was thumped for
13 hits by Cleveland yesterday and
V had his winning streak fractured.
The Naps made more runs in nine
innings than had been scored on
Walter in 70. Steen was a bear and
held the Nationals to half a dozen
safeties. Graney got a triple and two
singles off Johnson. Laporte and
Gandil were injured, and retired from
the same. Milan was knocked un
conscious sliding home, but stuck
to his post
Plank pitched. The Athletics won.
Old stuff. Eddie let the Tigers down
with three small hits. Oldring, Col
lins and Lapp hit Hall and Zam
loch hard enough to overwhelm De
troit The Athletics only got one
game in three from Detroit, the only
series they have lost this season.
Stone outpitched JCIepfer, giving
the Browns an even break with the
Yanks in the series. Pratt and Shot
ten each got two hits, and Brief soak
ed a triple. After the latter clout
Stovall said he would boss the team
from the bench, leaving Brief at first
Joe Tinker yesterday traded Pitch-,
er Art Fromme to the Giantsi or Leon
Ames, Josh Devore and tirohi an in-j
fielder. The swap is a good thing fori
both teams and should give the'
Giants a better chance in the Nation-
al League race.
Pittsburgh beat Brooklyn in a five
inning game, but President Ebbetts
of the Dodgers will protest Rain was -falling
all the time and the contest
was a farce. Ump Klem called the
game in the sixth when Stengel tried
to steal second and slid 16 feetipast
the Bag in the mud. Jake-Dailbert
was Suspended 'for three .daysj for
ragging the umps Wednesday. Curtis
and Cooper each allowed three hits. .
Cincinnati made a ten strike when
Red Dooin of the Phils sold Pitcher
Red Nelson to Tinker. Nelson is a
good pitcher, but Dooin said he had
too many heavers who were in per
fect condition and needed regular
wonk to maintain their form. Nelson
will give Tinker strength where pe
needs it the most
If George Stovall is like most of
the ball players now "writing" for
the papers, his written apology to
Ump Ferguson will be composed by
a regular writer and George will
sign the letter. Stovall will be back
in the game tomorrw between St
Louis and Detroit
Harry Reuther, the southpaw
"pitcher, who did a good job of work
against the White Sox in California
this spring when he was attending St
Mary's College, has been released byj;
the Pirates.

A solicitor called upon a profes
sional brother one" day and asked his
advice upon a point of law. The law
yer whose opinion had been sought,
said:
"I generally get paid for what I
know."
The questioner thereupon took

ed it to the other, and remarked:
"Tell me all you know, and give
me the change!"
