Willie Ritchie has4 again proved
himself peer of modern lightweights.
Harlem Tommy Murphyr veteran
of many battles, .was unable to stand
before the young champion in San
Francisco last night. Murphy man
aged to last the twenty. rounds but
at the finish was a badly shattered
and soundly beaten man.
Cameness and ability to take a
flood of punishment enabled the .New
Yorker to stick to the end, but he
wasbeaten all the way. Ritchie had
a wide margin in 17 rounds, two were
even, and Murphy might" have been
given a slight edge in one.
Tommy managed to hit the cham
pion, but his blows lacked steam and
had no effect. On the other hand,
Ritchie ripped home his right and left
with telling effect and brought blood.
This means the passing of Murphy
as a crown contender. Heiias had his
first and last try at the title. It came
too latcfor him to seize it

Yesterday was- Arbor Day, and in
many school yards, trees were planted
by the pupils, and there was -considerably
joy, and goodfeeng over the
But these tree plantings were
small-time stuff compared to the
trusty ash that Join Collins planted
against one of George Collamore's
shopts,in the ninth inhlhg of the Sox
tfap game yesterday, winning the
fourth straight' combat for the Sox,
and making, incidentally, the fourth
in. which Collins has had a share in
scoring the winning ruri.
The smash resulted in a homer aft
ef two were, and untied the score
which Jack Lelivelt haci Joined in the

a wild throw by Weaver.
The first three games of the Nap
seizes brought out some stellar pitch

it was the swatsmen who did the

Red Faber, who went around the
world, started the twirling for the
Sox. He was hit hard, and suffered
from wfldne'ss, wild-pitching over one .
Nap run. Reb Russell relieved Faber
in the fifth and was small improve
ment. He was not hit hard, but was
erratic and helped the Naps to two of'
their -runs off him by loony thrdws..
One was too low for Schalk and the
other was a three-base throw past
first on a grounder from Jackson.
Schalk was charged with two pass
ed balls, both of which were costly.
They might have been placed to the
discredit of the pitchers and.no injus-,
tice would have been done. Ray was
kept busy hopping around his terri
tory stopping the weird slants of
Faber and RusseH, especially the latter.
