Charlie White made another won
derful fight in the east, knocking
Young Brown out in the first round
of a New York battle. Brown went
down twice from stiff lefts before
White put a finisher to the jaw.
Charlie's left delivered each of the
damaging blows and the last one put
him to sleep for at least a minute.
White .seems to do better fighting
in the east than in his own neigh
borhood, and, if he succeeds in get
ting Freddie Welsh into the ring he
should bill the battle for New York
or Boston. Welsh must soon fight
the Chicagoan, though it is doubtful
if he will consent to a battle of over
Early today the Desplaines speed
way officials had not vetoed their de
cision to postpone the 500-mile auto
race from next Saturday to June 26.
Traction troubles were given as a
reason for the setback in the date.
Whether the settlement of the strike
will cause the race to be set up to the'
original date had not been deter
mined at noon.
Dario Resta in a Peugeot covered
the track in dizzy time yesterday, av
eraging 110.1 miles an hour. None
of the cars which had their elimina
trials failed to average better than 90
miles an hour, though 85 miles had

Since reaching their home lot the
Cubs have made no startling strides
forward at the exepnse of the east

record reading four victories and
four defeats. But there is hope for
better things shortly.

pitchers and in the last two games
has punched out two bingles per bat

es that left no doubt of their identity
as hits. One was a crashing four

when they would do the most good
for the common cause. Men were
either on base or he started a rally

Just what this return to batting
form means can be understood when
it is pointed out that for 14 games
