Charlie White, the Chicago very

tler, at Butte, Mont., August 2. It's
a swell chance for White to make a

Trouble in the Boston Red Sox
management. Jimmy McAleer claims
Jake Stahl has been trying to have
him ousted from the presidency by
the stockholders, and is trying to
scare up support from the minority

the team this year and as a result
