BASEBALL-SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BOXING
Charley White, the local light
weight, seems to be in the midst of
one of his good fighting streaks. This
is the time for him to capitalize his
ability and go after some more good
battlers while he is in the throes
of a spurt.
White in the past has been a spot

be expected to surge forward with a
resounding smash he would come a
cropper and lose the prestige of his
really excellent battles.

As long as Jack Fournier wears a
White Sox uniform Walter Johnson,
the American league speed king, will
never find the South Siders a soft
team to down. Through a freak in
the relations between certain batters
and pitchers, -peculiar to baseball,
Fournier finds no difficulty in hitting
safely against the Washington wiz
ard. Though Walter may be mowing
down the other batters, up steps
Fournier and clouts heavily and ef

of trouble for the jumper, and this
season he is starting at the same clip.
Two hits he made yesterday, though
only one counted in the scoring, and
each was a single.
The terrific power of Fournier's
drives was illustrated in the seventh
inning when the Sox counted thrice.
Eddie Collins started with a walk.
Then came Fournier with a smash at
Morgan, the Washington second
baseman. Morgan touched the ball.
He couldn't get out of the way. It
smashed through his hands, slapped
him flat and rolled a short distance
Into the field, allowing Collins to
reach third. A single by John Collins
and some poor work by Washington

smite they "would have been held
away from the plate. Jack has a sys-
