spells the difference between the um

Judgment is going to be reserved
on Fournier, however. He deserves
every chance in the world to make
good. Benched throughout the sea
son, it would be surprising if he step
ped right in and began to whale the
ball. According to precedent, he
should require a few days to get his
eyes focused on the pill. Then eh
should hit. He has done it in every
league he ever played in.
In the fielding end, also, he must be
treated fairly. Filling the shoes of a
man like Chase is a large order, es
pecially for a youngster who has been
shunted around from the outfield to
first base, back of the bat and then
again to the gardens. He cannot be
expected to protect the first stop as
well as Chase.
With some of the older pitchers
faltering, which means they allow
more than half a dozen hits and two
runs, Red Faber, the young speed
boy, is doing his work manfully. Four
hits were knocked off him yesterday
and the Red Sox were baffled at ev
ery step of the way. This is Faber's
second great gamein a week, the
other being a one-Hit affair against
Collins, Fournier and Schalk each
got two hits off George. Foster, who
has been tearing through the league
effectively. Demmitt and Weaver
each busteda triple. x
Ray , Schalk was injured again,
twisting his leg sliding to base. He
will be out for several days and sohuld
not be allowed t oreturn to duty be
fore he i& fully recovered. Ray is too
valuable an athlete to take chances
on. Without him the Sox team would
be a sorry spectacle.

Tomorrow the Cubs play an exhibi

Baltimore. Meyer got four hits and
Swacina and Walsh three each. Mar

hand a game to the Stogies. Bar

Ty Cobb is now billed. as imme

The Tiger star got in a fight with a
Detroit butcher Saturday, and twist
ed his thumb so badly that he will be
out of the game for a few days. Ty
said the fight started because the
butcher insulted hiB wife.
He tried to keep the affair out of
the papers, and said that the notor
iety might force him out of the
American League. The Peach said
he was hopelessly disgraced.
Ty was taken to the police station,
but no arrest was entered, and the
matter will probably be hushed up.
