And Ban Johnson froths at the
mouth at the mention of the idea.
Cilmore's challenge is good adver

Anyhow, Gilmore is making work

Manager Callahan brought his Sox
home today with the knowledge that
he would have to make a good show
ing against the eastern teams or be
tumbled out of fifth place in the
American League race.
This danger isn't worrying Cal a
great deal. He would rather look
over his new players than finish fifth,
as there is nothing to be gained by
a spurt this late in the season.
So far Roth, Baker and Manda
have been given opportunities to
show their wares before Callahan and
Gleason. Manda has been frequently
lifted to make room for a pinch hit
ter, but seldom have the pinchers
done more than the recruit might
have. The fact is, there are no pinch
hitters on the Sox bench. Most of
them are there because they can't
bat more than .200, and that is not
an ideal swatting mark for a pincher.
Next year things may be different.
Indications now are that Callahan
will have at least four good outfield
ers, and the one not working can be
sent up in the pinch. It is also possi
ble that Felch, the Milwaukee pros
pect, will have major league require
ments, in which event Cal will have
five outfielders. From Collins, Dem
mitt, Roth, Chappell and Felch three
regular gardeners of excellent ability
should be picked, and the other two
will be ready to step to the front.
Now, when the outfield alignment
'3 upset, it is necessary to send Daly
to the garden. Tom is an ambitious
ballplayer, and for a catcher has per
formed well both in the outfield and

Chance will not be in charge of the
Yankees this afternoon. Roger
Peckinpaugh will handle the helm
from now to the season's close. What
effect this will have on the team can't
be determined. It should make the
picking softer for western teams.
Failure to hit opportunely and one
fielding slip back of good pitching by
Scott and Wolfgang let the Browns
take two from Sox yesterday. John
Collins got three hits in the first and
Roth and Baker got two each in the
second. Manda poled a hit per game.
The Great Zim, whose "greatness"
seems to be mostly physical, became
peeved again yesterday, threw a ball
over the grandstand between innings
at Brooklyn and was canned from
the game by Umpire Klem. This is
the second time Klem has fired Zim
for the same offense this season. The
other occasion was against the
Giants on the West Side.
Before getting chased Zim had
pulled som.e wild mechanical stuff
that set the game up for the Dodgers.
He doubled to start the second inning
and foolishly tried to make three
bases, though the ball had been re
turned to the infield. He followed
this up by throwing wild to the plate
while Brooklyn was at bat and also
foozling a grounder. The two mis
cues presented the Dodgers with
three runs and they batted in three
Lavender had nothing to rally on
and triples by Daubert and Cutshaw
undid him completely.
The Cubs simply played the kind
of ball that has characterized all their
trips this season, and it won't win
many games. The attack was weak,
so was the pitching, and Zim furnish
ed errors enough for all. Kniseley
batted for Good and tripled, thereby
padding his slender sticking average.
Tinker's plan to work his three
best pitchers in rotation brought re
