way champion, hopped over the Elgin
auto course yesterday at a 70-mile
clip and Bill Endicott, one of Jalec
Sloan's speed boys, burned up the
surface at a 90-mile clip. Some imag
ination. Chicagoans take a peculiar interest
in the high-powered hydroplane, Dis
turber HI, owned by J. A. Pugh, and
when the big mahogany-hulled flyer
hit up about 45 miles an hour yester

$22,000 silver trophy, holding safe
such boats as Baby Reliance and
Hazel n, everyone at Grant Park was
happy. Pugh's craft was hitting on
all 24 cylinders, and after establish
ing a nice lead her speed was check
ed to hold the distance. In another
heat Kitty Hawk V defeated the
Weckler hydro Barnacle, which was
not up to the speed shown before the
crankcase was cracked.
Governor McCovern of Wisconsin

and hereafter 10-round bouts may
be staged. The commission receives
nothing in the way of compensation.

his scores, what's the answer? Is
this an alibi for the Allis-Evans
match of recent memory? , Jm

It was a large afternoon yesterday,
for the Chicago ball clubs. The
Giants toyed with the Cubs, the Ath
letics mussed up the Sox and to make
it three of a kind the Indianapolis
Feds walked all over the Keeleys in
an overtime contest.
Eddie Collins was worth the price
of admission to Comiskey Park yes

five trips to the plate and made Jos
Benz and Smith like it. The game
started like a duel between. Benz and
