SOX COMPLETELY OUTCLASS
CUBS IN CITY SERIES
By Mark Shields
Actual combat seems on the poii.t a
of backing up the dope after a sea-
son that has shattered all preconceived-notions
of what should hap
Rowland's White Sox took the first
game of the city series from the
Cubs, .did it with comparative ease,
and bulked far above their opponents
on the score of class. For six innings
they waddled along in1 the ruck, but,
even fighting a rear-guard action,
they appeared superior to the North
Siders, and, once Jim Vaughn wa

To win this civil 'strife Tinker '
needs airtight pitching. He used his
best bet yesterday and has no man
as capable as Vaughn to shoot
against the opposition for the re

ender is apt to turn in a finished bit
of boxwork, but it is no safe bet.
Hendrix was made to order for a
team that bats as the Sox do, and
McConnell would not fare much bet

his left hand, may have a chance, but
the Sox have faced better Southpaws

Rowland used one man, Russell.
Reb was hit narder than usual, but '
scattered the hits. Now Rowland
has other competent men remaining
and may not have to use the Texas f j
southpaw again. Paber is ready and
has a delivery thatwill baffle many
of the right-handed batsmen of the
North Side. And he will trouble Cy
Williams, if Cy gets in the game. He
will not be easy for Vic Saier.
Eddie Cicotte is a woncerful city
Series pitcher and Claude Williams
and his wrong-handed stuff should
