SWEET REVENGE FOR
Behind the defeat of Yule by Boston
college, mitde possible by a Held goal
kicked by Jimmy Fltzpatrlck, lies u
lather Interesting little story. It seems
that u couple of years iigo, upon grad
uating from the high school at Mori
den, Conn., Jimmy planned to enter
Yale und to tnke part In athletics at
that university. Johnny Mack, the Yule
trainer, looked the boy over ono day,
however, and remarked that he would
never make an athlete. Mack's hastily
rendered Judgment caused Fltzpatrlck
to change his niliiil nbout going to Yale
and he entered Boston college. The
blow he delivered to the Bulldog's
pride, therefore, brought great delight
to the heart of the Merlden boy.

RING'S JINX STICKS TO HIM
Cincinnati Twlrler Thought He Had
Shaken It, But It Came Back
In Big Series.
Jimmy Ring was the hard luck
pitcher of the Cincinnati Reds nil Inst
season. The team Just could not maku
runs for him. Jimmy thought ho had
shaken the Jinx at Chicago on October
i when he won u world's series gumo
from the White Sox, U to 0.
But Jimmy's hard luck was only on a
temporary vacation that day. It came
back home on October 7 when Pat
Moran called him In to relievo Walter
Ruethcr In tho sixth Inning with Hup
Felsch on second, none out nnd thu
score 4 to !! In Cincinnati's favor.
Jimmy started off like ho had pitched
nt Chicago, (iaudll popped out, RIs
bcrg grounded out nnd then Schalk
singled und the score wus tied. It was
Ring's game, win or lose.
Ho lost und mainly becnuso tho
Reds, who had mndo four runs for tho
wobbly Ruethcr, lapsed Into their Na
tional League hahlt of forgetting how
to score when Jimmy took tho hill.
Moron's men scored less runs for
Ring In the National Lcaguo season
than for any other pitcher on tho team
who worked as much as he.
After he went Into tho box In tho
sixth game, 18 Reds went to bat
ngalnst Dick Kerr. Five of them hit
safely and one walked, But did oven
ono of them score? They did not. Even
tho great Boush hit Into a double play
with men un first and second und one
out In tho seventh.
Ring himself had a middling sort of
n chance to break up tho game when
Mortin ntlowed him to hit fur hhuselt
after Nealn and Rurlden had singled
with two out In tho eighth. But Jluiui)
Is not ii hitting pitcher.
