St Louis fans are in favor of hold
ing a Plank day during the lumber
men's convention there.
This balmy summer weather works
many freaks. For instance, pitchers
who have to face Joe Jackson these
days say the general is crazy with
One expert rises to remark that
golfers should breathe while hitting
the ball. Can you imagine any golf
er holding his breath three minutes?
Fans in Boston have given up hope
of having another world's series
ticket scandal next October.
Checkers and chess are two games
that are always on the square.
How do you pronounce B-j-u-r-s-t-e-d-t?
Sounds like a stickler, doesn't it?
But it's easy, once you hear it from
Miss Molla Bjurstedt herself, the
woman's tennis champion.
The majority of the Swedish, Scan
dinavian and Norwegian names con

Remarkable as it may sound, the
White Sox face just as difficult op- Qh
position in the series opening today
with the Browns as they did against
the Detroit Tigers. Jennings' people
were in a slump, and the Browns, de
spite three defeats in Cleveland, are
playing better ball than at any time
Fielder Jones has driven some of
his own ideas into the St Louis ath
letes and their physical ability is un
questionable. Sisler is climbing to
the top of his game and his recent
all-around playing has been the sen
sation of the league.
More important than this, Jones
has worked his pitchers into effec
tiveness and it does not take many
runs to insure a win for the Browns.
Following this three-game series
with the Browns, the Sox make an
other swing around the eastern end
of the league, not coming home
again until July 25, when the New.
York Yanks arrive for four games,
heading the second invasion of the '
eastern clubs. In this second eastern
series at home the Sox should have
some soft picking, as eight games are
slated with the Athletics in four
By shutting out the Tigers in 12
innings Reb Russell established a
record of allowing one run in the last
39 innings he has toiled. Reb is the
stingiest pitcher Rowland boasts and
is to get plenty of work, as he thrives $
Suspension is probable in the case
of Ty Cobb, who tossed his bat into
the grandstand after a called third
strike by Umpire Nallin yesterday. A
fine is certain. There is no other
punishment left for the Peach. Put
ting him out of the game was not
enough, as the spectators were eui
