Phil Ball, boss of the St. Louis
Browns, says the continued rain is
having a bad effect on his crop of
long green.
Good ballplayers, like horses, can
be ruined by hard riding.
Verily, murder will out. We are
now informed that Mike Gibbons
was once a wrestler.
Christy Mathewson is said to be
suffering from fresh kinks in his
well-known pitching arm. Which
same means he probably will come
across with a shut-out his next time
on the peak.
A champion swimmer has deserted
the water for vaudeville, but the cir
cus still remains the mecca of the
boxfighter.
Speaking of encouragement, there
is the headline: "Brooklyn Rooters
Wondering Whether Team Will
Crack."
The proposed boxing carnival in
South America has been called off.
Folks down there like the bull, but
not that kind.

EDDIE COLLINS SHAKES SLUMP
WITH THREE HITS
By Mark Shields
. Eddie Collins won a ball game for
the White Sox yesterday with his bat,
something that has not occurred for
many long afternoons. The total of
the Columbia boy's batting strength
was a single, double and triple, and
the shortest and longest hit each
came in a rally during which the Sox
counted three runs.
It was the Collins of the past free
ing himself from a batting slump
that is the longest Eddie or any other
recognized star has suffered for many
moons. Eddie is a ball player, a star.
Even when he was not hitting, when
his average was a hundred points-below
his normal notch, he has looked
like the real thing, for his defensive
work has been excellent, and he haa
been fufl of pepper and enthusiasm
all the time.
The shaking of this historic slump
was the cause of a jollification on
the Sox bench. In the eighth, with
the score tied and Weaver on first,
Ed smashed a triple to center field,
and later scored. When he reached
the dug out the athletes crowded
around him, slapped him on the
back, and Buck actually picked Ed
up in his arms and carried him up
and down the boards.
With Collins hitting, the array of
the Sox is much altered.
Lefty Williams, the young Sox
southpaw, should have gone through
the full game against Boston, and
been effective all the way. He was
scored on in the second inning be
cause Jackson fell down and let an
easy single go for a home run. But
the thing that really upset Williams
occurred in the fifth inning, when
Manager Rowland let the ladies' day
crowd manage his ball club.
