INJURIES TO RU.SSELL AND RAY
SCHALK. BLdWS TO SOX

Injuries to Rebel Russell and Ray
Schalk, though the athletes will be,
but temporarly out of the game,
may have a" serious effect on the
chances of the South Siders to fin
ish at the pinnacle of the American
league race.
Russell has a twisted ankle that is
not serious in Its physical aspects,
but it may take a week for the
league's leading southpaw to become
strong in the damaged runner. The '
White Sox have 16 more games to
play and Russell wa,s tounted on to
pitah about five of these and act as
rescuer or relief man in probably as
many more. t -
Injured at this time, Russelr will
undoubtedly be out of the Washing
ton and Boston series. He was being
figured to piteb; today in the opener
against the Nationals and has been
effective all season against the world
champions.
This" puts the twirling burden up
to Paber, Williams and Benz or Dan
forth and Cicotte, with Wolfgang do
ing the rescue act None of these'
fellows possess the, iron ,man attri
butes of the left-handed Texan.
Schalk's injury is a split nail on
the index finger of his right -hand.
The duration of hi convalescence
has not been determined. If the hail
is lost Ray may be out for the re
mainder of the season. Trainer
Buckner believes Ray will be in
shape within a very few days.
But the little catcher will also be
lost for the two games with Wash
ington and probably for the set with
Boston. He is bhdly needed in both
engagements, especially with Wash
ington, for Griffith has some speed
merchants Uiat may make trouble
for Jack Lapp's arm. ,
Schalk is the cog around, which
