would win the pennant were based
on such an achievement.
Now the east has gone away and
we are in third place. By winning
three straight from Detroit the lo

place before their next trip, but the
achievement -is doubtful. Boston in

The White Sox won all the games
they deserved, considering their
playing. New York, crippled, should
never have had an even break, and
Washington has no license to split
four games with a real ball club, as
Clark Griffith discovered in three
other western cities.
As the lines draw tighter the club
seems to lose its dander. There is
a slight air of panic apparent in the
play of some of the noble athletes.

fielding well, not quarreling with the
umpires, and acting generally like a
regular person. The strain was too
much. Zim has concluded that he is
washing time giving his best efforts
to such a bunch and it pains him to
.associate with such punk players.
All of which has strengthened talk
that he will be traded if the club can
get something worth while for him.
A player with his heart in the game,
willing to work "for the common
good, would be more valuable, even
though he is not labeled, a "great"
