Among those In the line were a num

Despite the discomfort, the crond

anxious fans stretching up Klghth

way to 149th street. The Intervening
streets were packed near the ball park,
which stands at 155th street.
The first sign of disorder came about
4 a. m when a milk wagon drove up.
Men In line asked the driver to sell
them tome milk, but he refused. A
dozen or more attacked the wagon and
drank all the milk they wanted, then
paid the driver what they thought the
refreshment was worth.

Forrest Cad will catch "Smoky Joe"
Wood In the series for the world's
championship, which Blurts tomorrow,
while those who dope the Giants' out
field as weak hitters say that "Mush"
McCormlck is likely to appear oa a
pinch hitter for McOraw.
Cady Is n rangy catcher, can throw
well, and Is something of a sticker,
boasting an uveragc of .274 Ho has
supported Joe Wood all season, and
has done well In this his first ap
pearance in the big show. He came
from Newark in the old International
League, and made good at tho start.
Joe Wood selected him to do the back
stopping, and those who have seen
Cady work say he is as good as they
come, despite his lack of experience.
"Mush" McCormlck Is the Giants' off),
cinl pinch hitter, and while ho Is wobbly
on his pins, and by no means a fair
base runner, he can clout with the
best of them. McGraw will probablv
urn- McCormlck In the pinches and
will supplant him on the bases with
Burns, who Is fleet of foot McCor

Olants' line-up as a regular, although
he has been called on Innumerable
times as a pinch hitter, and has been
able to deliver tho goods with such
a ilcgioe of regularity that he has
moro than earned his salary.

RED MURRAY WILL
BE HERO OF SEfiJES
Failed to Show
By HUGHEY JENNINGS.
Who will be the hero of the world's
Each vear since the Cubs and Sox
renewed the Interleague postseason bat
tles there has come Into the limelight
the name of a player of whom little had
been heard before the crucial moment.
In the Sox-Cub series the unheralded
hero of the moment was rtohe, the lit
tle fellow whose two-baggers at the
irltlcal moments turned the tide In two
games for the Box.
One of the biggest surprises of my
life waa when I saw Cobb and Craw
ford fall to come up to expectations In
the world's series ot 1W7, and Claud
Rossman hogging the limelight as the
You remember It was Babe Adams of
the Pittsburgh Club wno Deal ueiroii
In our last world's series. Adams had
been going poorly all season, and no
one "expected him to provo tho hero,
t tic wam thn headltner.
Eddie Collins was naturally looked
upon as the map to star for tho Ath
letics last fall against tho Giants, and
It remained for Frank Baker and his
big bat to take away the honors. Long
ago Bill Dlneen, then with Boston,
pitched the Hub team Into a world's
championship by winning from Pitts
burgh the gumo upon which tho title
depended. . ,
I believe that Bed Muirav, the Giant
outfielder, will be the hero of this year's
series. I believe this because 1 saw
Murray In two championship series the
city series between the two New York
teams and last year's struggle for the
highest honors and In both he fa led
to get a hit. It Is the psychological
thing that he should shine thta year.
The time has come for him to star.
He has gained confidence. He has great
ability all right, but he has failed to
show in tno series up to aaie.
Should Kick Goals.
Bowdotn and Union lost games by
fnlllns to kick a goal from touchdown.
It pays to practice this art ot convert
ing a touchdown Into seven points.
