SOX HAVE. RESTWILL MEET
CLEVELAND TOMORROW
By MarJc Shields
From the incomparable Examiner
we learn that Ray Hamilton started j
tb pitch for the Browns yesterday.
Probably supported by Clarence Sis- ,
ler at first base and Harold Pratt at
second. Catcher Jones snowed poor y
judgment in picking his pitcher.
Today the Whits Sox, after clean

days through poor work on the
bases.
Overcoming these bits of bad play
shone the spirit of the revamped
Hose. They are fighting 'now and.
