Charley White and Stanley Yoa
kum, the Denver lightweight, will
clash in Keposha Oct. 5. The boys
met two months ago in Denver and
White knocked Yoakum out in. the
19th round, the only time the Denver
ite has ever been put to sleep.
White anti Leach Cross cannot get
together on the weight question, the
only thing -blockading a fight be
tween them in Milwaukee for Oct. 23.
White wants to weigh In at 133
pounds at 6 o'clock and Cross is-holding
out for two pounds more. There
is little likelihood of a compromise.

Rest for Braves' Star Pitchers Feds
Are in First Place.
George Stallings is planning a rest
for his three star pitchers to prime
.them for the world's series with the
Athletes. With this plan in mind, he
has used Rudolph two days in a row
in order to make victories sure and
cinch the pennant before the last two
or three games of the season.
Braves are now seven and a hall
games ahead of the Giants. Even
should the New Yorkers win all oi
the remaining 13 games, Braves
would only have to take six in ordex
to finish in first place. It is a long
chance, but Stallings is not prepared
to let up until matters are finally
Rudolph may not work more than
one game during the remainder oi
the National Lejfcue season. Aftei
pitching yestercflqr he was sent ta
New York to rest up for the Giants
James may follow him, and the Cubi
will not haVe to cope with this pail
Rudolph's remarkable feat oi
pitching two shut-outs in as manj
days tope off a wonderfuL season
