the effect of the double victory was
And those Cubs! Five thousand
Chicagoans hustled to the Cub park
to see the cellar battle yesterday. This
is not the crowd, they used to draw
when a championship was at stake,
but runs pretty good for teams in the
bottom of the heap. The Cubs and
Giants will always draw, however.
Too much Walter Johnson damp
ened the ardor of the Sox. Comis
key's swell team couldn't touch Wal
ter's slippery ones and the South Sid
ers were fortunate to score once.
Rather discouraging to lose so con
sistently with the swell bunch that
Comiskey has; but then a pennant
was never won by patching a team
at the end of the scrap. If 'his high
priced veterans are handing out the
ball they are playing this year when
the race starts in the spring, if the
boys get together and play the game
tqgejbher the Sox will hit the top
early and stay there.
.Larry Chappell and Red Shackel
ford are billed from Milwaukee to
Chicago in a deal between the Sox
and Brewers: Chappell is the same
$18,000 Larry who was sent back
after a long try-out with the Sox. Just
what they will do with him when
they( get him is uncertain. The dope
is ttiat he will go to Cleveland in the
deal which brought Jackson to the

Five new ones started the grind at

Two mad scrambles for places in
the baseball jumble moved m Chicago
teams in their games yesterday.- The
Feds, with top in sight copped twice;
the Cubs, just a step from the bottom
of the National league ladder, split
with the Giants, the other candidate.
The Feds have some sort of chance
of. grabbing the "outlaw" honors this
year in spite of their horrible mid
summer drop. The North Siders, how
ever, must play almost perfect ball
if the Pittfeds plow along' at the rate
they are going.
