Lavender's injury comes just at a
time when it seemed the Monte
zuma Marvel was to be of some use
to the team. He pitched one excel

Jim Vaughn, is the only man who
has shown ability to go through nine
- innings without assistance from two
or three brother pitchers. It places
Bresnahan in a bad position and
means the pilot will have to rely on
the younger pitchers for a couple of

Sox fans who have become dis
couraged because Rowland's gang is
off to a poor start, when great things
were expected, should not become
downhearted. Too many times in
the past the South Side aggregation
has started early to break up the
league in a runaway race, only to curl
under a scorching sun in June and
July and slither down toward the '
bottom of the ladder. - '
Yesterday was thefirst time the
Sox have really been decisively de-
feated this season. In every other
-gaftne they have offered a hot battle '
and the margin between defeat and i
victory has been smalL It must be '
considered that Rowland is putting '
together a new team, with two new r
men in the outfield and practically
three strangers in the infield.-as Bre-'

It will take time for these fellows '
to sift into machine play. They need f
the experience of playing together
and much cannot be expected of '
them until they become acquainted
with each other's peculiarities.
Also, yesterday was the first time '
they have been unable to hit effec-
tively. Batting power is there in
larger proportions than has ever been
known before on a Sox team and it is "
bound to make jtself felt Felsch and '
Brief have been hitting the ball with
as much force as Jack Fournier ever
employed and they are sure to roll up ;
Jim Scott was spiked in practice
and will be out of th& game for a few.
