TWENTY-ONE STRAIGHT WINS
BY GIANTS NEW REQORD
Outside of the fact that our plug
ging White Sox won another game
Monday and held their slight chance
of grabbing the America league

thing that happened in the sporting
world Monday was the breaking of

league race stood about as the day
before, except that every time Bos

grow dimmer. Comiskey's crew haa
