McCue Shades Sokol in Clever Bout;
Matched With Attell.
Sox Strong Against Eastern Teams
Cubs Limp Home.
Matty McCue, the dashing Racine
featherweight, did not knock out
Johnny Sokol last night in their ten
round bout at Fond du Lac, but he
easily outfought the Buffalo young
ster. When McCue found he could not
polish Sokol off with a single punch
he settled down to roll up points
"without taking any desperate
chances of injuring himself and be
ing handicapped in his big match
with Patsy Brannigan next week.
The fight showed McCue in a new
role, cleverness. He was a revela
tion to the fans, who thought he
had nothing but a haymaker.
Promoters have clinched a go be
tween McCue and Abe Attell, the
former champion, to take place In
Kenosha the night of June 5. Attell
is expected in Chicago some time
next week to train for the battle.
The shifty Hebrew has lost none
of his cunning, and if McCue can
get to him there will be no question
of his class.
New York fight promoters are
trying to tempt Bud Anderson, the
coast lightweight, to come East for
a bout with Leach Cross in July.
Anderson is considering the proposi
tion seriously, as there is a chance
for him to pick up a big bunch of
money. Both Anderson and Cross
have knock-out decisions over Joe
Mandot, the New Orleans baker,
and a go between them would be a
great drawing card. If the match Is
pulled off the winner will be given
a fight with' the winner of the Ritchie-Rivers
mfllr scheduled for July
4 on the coast. It would be an ideal
drawing card for Labor Day.
Dick Hoblitzell, the Red first base
man, who has been in a Boston hos
pital with tonsilitis, will be able to
leave for Jiggie tomorrow or Monday-

All of the Eastern teams of the
American League have appeared on
the South Side in battle array against
the White Sox and Callahan's men
have copped a majority of the games
Thirteen contests in all were stag
ed between Ihe Easterners and the
Sox. Of this number the locals won
eight and dropped five. Three games
were postponed because of rain.
Washington appeared first and
broke even in a four-game series.
Connie Mack's league-leading Ath
letics followed and were only able
to get in two combats against the
Hose. The result was one game for
each team. Led by Frank Chance,
the Yanks blew into town and con
tinued to blow all the time they were
here. Little difficulty was experienced
by the White Sox in taking four
Boston was looked upon as easy
prey, but the Red Hose were the
only Easterners to get the edge dn
