At that, in order to com clean,

Somebody had the wrong dope
when he said the Browns lacked a

New York's recent explosion will
probably be forgotten in the rush

Credit is due Ban Johnson for stop

American league but he'll never get
an iron cross for quelling chin music.

WHITE SOX AND BOSTON IN
GRAPPLE FOR THE LEAD
By Mark Shields
To maintain their grip on first
place at the close of the sessions
with the eastern teams the White
Sox must get an even split with the
Boston Red Sox in the four-game set
starting this afternoon. Three out
of four for the enemy will shove the
locals to second place by a game and
a half, their margin of victory now
being half a game.
Should the South Siders get three
out of four it will, for the present
materially relieve the congestion
around the top of the league. In the
light of their conduct against New
York and Washington the Sox can
figure on an even break as their best
performance.
The Red Sox series will be fol
lowed by three games here against
Detroit and then our prides hike east
for one more visit ' They should be
on top when they start that traverse
or their pennant probabilities will be
dimmed. Against all easterners but
the Athletics they have showed less
this time at home than the previous
sojourn.
And the lines will be tightly drawn
when the Sox reach the east again.
New "York has Cullop back in form,
and Magee, Maisel and Baker may
be ready when the club gets back
home. This means the Hose will find
three tough spots in the east. Four
games against the Mackmen should
be soft, but we now have no advan
tage in that direction, for the other
clubs have as many games scheduled
with the Komical Kids as the Row
Ian dites.
That swollen Mackian series of.
eight games here was counted on to
put the Sox in the race. It did. But
a better record should have been
made against Washington and New
York.
