Ritchie, Who Canned Nolan.
Somebody is going to fall into the

them know is fighting and perform
ing in a theater. The money and
business details must be cared for
by a smooth talker and a good type
writer operator. Jimmy Gabby, the
Hammond pugilistic czar, Is one of
the few men who can take, care of
himself. Clabby has his own fight
club in the Indiana burg, and is the
Bmil Thiry, manager of Packey
McFarland, is toying with the Rit
chie bait. Ritchie is a money maker
and will be a good meal ticket for
any manager, especially if he defeats
Joe Rivers Independence Day. Mc
Farland does not fight often enough
to suit Thiry. Packey has all the
change he wants himself and dopsn't
worry about where his manager's
cakes and coffee are coming from.
Both Nolan and Ritchie gave out
the statement that they had separa
rated the best of friends.

Larry, the Cleveland bull dog mas

a nibble at a child yesterday and
Clark Griffith also claims the animal
has been taught to bark in order to
rattle the Naps' opponents. Hey,
Griff, how about the way Joe Jack- i
son Tattles the Naps' opponents?
He's worse than the dog, and gosh,
how he bites the alien pitchers.

"breaks" In order to win.
Many people deride the idea that
old Dame Fortune is in the league,
but she had a hand in the last two
combats between the Phillies and
Cubs on the West Side.
Wednesday the Cubs downed the
enemy, 4 to 0. That sounds Tike a
good working margin, but all the
luck came the way of the Cubs, and
the Phils were deserted. Three times
Philly batters clubbed line drives that
might have entirely changed the
complexion of the game If they had
gone safe. But on each occasion
there was a home defender in front
of the pill. If any of these blows
had been hit a couple of feet to the
right or left they would Tiave" been
sweet mauls. When the Cubs needed
a mm the hit was always forthcoming.
