LATE HAPPENINGS IN SPORTDOM
OPENING GAME OF WORLD'S SERIES
SLATED FOR PHILADELPHIA OCT. 17
National Commission Fixes Details of Championship Tests at a
Meeting Held in Cincinnati-Players, Umpires and Scorers
Announced for Biggest Event of Year—Players Will
Get Usual 60 Per Cent and May Share in the
Gate Receipts of Sunday Game in
Chicago-Fast Trains to Run
CINCINNATI, Oct. 3.—Fate played its part here today at the
meeting of the national commission, when the toss of a coin decided
that the first game for the world's baseball championship between
Philadelphia, the American league champions, and Chicago, pennant
.winner of the Irrational league, would be played in Philadelphia.
A few moments later the commission announced the contests
.would begin at 2 p. m., Monday, October 17.
It always has been a superstition that the team winning the
toss for the first game loses the series. For this reason, President
Murphy of Chicago was not much downcast when President Ben
Shibe of Philadelphia called the turn of a half dollar today.
The series will be played as follows: Monday, October 17, at
Philadelphia; second game, October 18, Philadelphia; Wednesday,
October 19, train trip from Philadelphia to Chicago; third game,
Thursday, October 20, at Chicago; fourth game, Friday, October
21, at Chicago.
In case other games are required to settle superiority, a fifth
game will be played October 22, after a hurried run in a special train
from Chicago to Philadelphia, and should another game be required,
another fast run in a special train will be made from Philadelphia
to Chicago in time to play the sixth game in Chicago, Sunday, Octo
jTf the series should not be settled by this time, the place of play
ing the seventh game will be determined by the toss of a coin.
The umpires for the big series will be Rigler and O'Day for the
(National league, and Connolly and^Sheridan for the American league.
The players eligible to take part Jn"
the series are:
Chicago National league club:
Archer, Beaumont, Brown, Cole,

Johnson of the Americans, were select
ed business managers.
Reserved seat prices -were fixed at
from $1 to $3, while the price for gen
eral admission will be 50 cents.
As usual, the players will receive 60
per cent of the proceeds of the first
fcur games, but to allow the players
tn take part in a possible Sunday the
commission Inserted a provision that
If none of the first four game receipts
equal the Sunday game In Chicago, in
case the latter game is played, the
players' proportionate share shall be
made on the basis of the Sunday game
The commission also called attention
to the rule which forbids the teams
to give any portion of the world's pro
ceeds to former teammates released to
clubs in the same league this season,
and prohibiting the giving of bonuses
by the owners to players Of the two
All press tickets are to be issued only

tions must be passed on by that body

In case any of the games are post
poned by weather conditions, the suc
ceeding games are to be moved ahead,
except that in any event the game
scheduled for Sunday, <jctober 23, is
to be played In Chicago.
Having in mind trouble with ticket
scalpers in other world's series, the
commission today added the follow
ing warning to Its announcement:
"The public is cautioned against
paying any higher prices for tickets
than those fixed in the official sched
ules. Every effort will bo made to
prevent ticket scalping, and the li
censes granted by the tickets will be

Fletcher's Pet Theory Is Now in
Sight of Practical
CINCINNATI, Oct. 3.—A copy of

the time of the delivery of the con
tract, Fletcher agrees to pay his play
ers the bonus sum of their wages,
which sum he specifies to be from $1000
The player promises in writing that

with any organized club on or before
February 10, 1911.
Then comes this clause:
"And he further agrees that if he fails
to sign the above set forth contract at
the time it and the said $10,000 are tend
ered to him, or shall fail or refuse to
play ball according to the terms of said
agreement when requested to, It shall
be regarded and held that the said
Fletcher is damaged to the extent of
$5000, which the said .. agrees to pay."
Section four provides that if an ac
cident or injury shall incapacitate a
player for fifteen days, his employer
may thereupon abruptly terminate the
Section eight provides for the ter
mination of the contract by the em
ployer giving the player ten days'

American Football Fans Are Ral
lying to Support the Real
The rah-rahs are preparing for a
great year in American football in the
south, and the schedule promises some
meetings calculated to instill the real
college spirit into the most slothful of
the fans. October will serve as a,
practice month, and November has a
program of high-class gridiron battles.
The squad of the University of
Southern California has been showing
the most class in team work and an
understanding of the new code, al
though Oxy and Pomona may come in
with a sweep later in the schedule.
The Methodists will put a much lighter
team on the field this year than last
season, but this will be a help rather
than a hindrance, according to the call
of the newly devised code.
Occidental, under the care of the
undergraduate coaching system in the
person of "Ink" Wieman, Is rapidly
rounding out a bunch of huskies, and
will shortly arrive at that stage of
training when the varsity eleven is
selected from the various embryo tim
ber scattered around the sawdust.
The Tiger team will average about
Although many rumors have been
circulated that Stanton is greatly dis
appointed over the outlook of the
sagebrush school team, to the old
fans this announcemet presages a
whirlwind team, light but fast, and
capable of overwhelming any delega
tion from the other teams of the con
Dope at the present stage of the
game is difficult, but the students of
each school have prepared a most
likely account of the way in which
the season will result. The impartial
dopesters are keeping quiet until each
of the big five, Redlands, Whittier,
Oxy, U. S. C. and Pomona, line up in
a real game.
MINOR HEIR RECORDS
COST TRAINER MONEY
Hersey's Offer of $50 for Each
Mark Lowered Proves
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 3.—Harry Hor
sey, superintendent of M. W. Savage's
stock farm and famous as the trainor
and driver of Dan Patch, Minor Heir
and other great horses, made a very
bad bargain last winter. It was made
more as a joke than otherwise, but it
was a bargain neverthelss, and Minor
Heir's record-breaking miles of the
past few weeks have made it a hard
bargain, too. It has already cost Her
sey $150, and there is no telling what
it will cost him before the end of the
One day last winter when work was
slack on the Savage training farm,
Harry and some of his assistants were
considering the chances for making
new world's records this year. The
superintendent was feeling good na
tured, but, as usual, not very optimis
tic. After a thorough discussion of all
the probabilities he closed the meeting
with the statement, made to Ernest
Barter, caretaker for Minor Heir:
"Well, Ernie, maybe we will ;tnd may
be wo won't. Anyway, he will need a
great deal of attention from now on.
I tell yftu what I'll do. Every time
Minor Heir breaks a world's record I
will give you $50."
Ernest grinned and Bald: "All right;
that's a bet."
Trouble started at Galesburg. Minor
Heir won a race In 2:00. "How about
that fifty?" chuckled Barter when
Hersey stood watching the great pacer
cooling out. "I'm stung," said Horsey,
"but I guess that murk won't be beateo
At Indianapolis it cost Harry a cold
hundred, and at Louisville, when Minor
Ih Ir made a now world's record mark
for a half mllo over a half-mile track,
there was chance for an argument,
but Barter agreed that as there hud
been a trial of this kind on the books
he would let Btrny oft but added,
ilerspy now wonders where it is all
going to end, but insists that he is
clad to part with the fifties.

CHANCE LAUDS WORK OF
CUBS' UTILITY PLAYERS
CINCINNATI, Oct. 3.—After playing
the game which gave the champion
ship of the National league to Chicago
yesterday. Manager Frank JU Chance
reviewed his troubles for the last few
"I am prouder of the Cubs than I
ever have been in my life," he said.
"They have beaten all records for
overcoming obstacles. Never in the
history of baseball did a team win out
under such a heavy handicap of sick
ness and injuries. ,
"Our regular team has been an avail
able one only at infrequent intervals.
But the utility men have more than
done their duty. But for Archer, Zim
merman, Kane and Beaumont we
wouldn't be celebrating. I am proud
of every one of them, and I wouldn't
trade by subs for the regulars on any
other club. While the injury to Johnny
Kvers is a blow, we have been receiv
ing similar blows all year, and we
can't quit and give up hope of land
ing the world's championship Just be
cause he is out. Zimmerman will play
second base in the big series, and,
mark my words, he will acquit him

BATTLE WITH AD
Former Champion Hopes to Force
Dutch Demon to Give
Him a Chance
HEGEWISCH, 111., Oct. 3.—Battling
Nelson, in a talking fit here today, an
nounced his determination to force Ad
Wolgast Into a return match. The
Dane is going about the affair In a
businesslike manner and believea a
strong campaign of publicity will soon
create a demand on the part of the
public which Wolgust cannot afford to
"Since winning the title from me
Wolgast has fought one battle," says
Nelson. "That was an easy ten-round,
no-decision affair with Jack Redmond,
a good fighter, but not in the cham
pionship running. He has consistently
ignored the demands made on him by
myself and other high-grade light
weights, and has become known as the
'champion staller" rather than the
champion lightweight. He is a dis
grace to the ring. He has now fc
mapped out four Imaginary battles to 1
quiet -the public, but he has again
ignored the man who is most entitled
to a battle.
"Any champion who loses a title af
ter the battle I gave Wolgust Is en
titled to a return match. I gave re
turn matches to Corbett, Britt, Gans,
Herrera and, in fact, any man who
thought he had a chance after I de
feated him. My title was clear cut
and undisputed. I passed up nobody,
While Wolgast, on the other hand, has
fought nobody. In forcing him into a
return match I am not a-sking any
thing unreasonable or anything that I
have denied others. We can fight, and
fight to a nnlsh, at Reno, and get a
barrel of money for It, too.
"I am now starting on an automo
bile trip with Abdul the Turk, my
trainer, and Mr. Tawney of Kansas
City, and will be gone three months.
I weigh 160 pounds and have something
on which to train, a statement I could
not make when I fought Wolgast be

me the distinction of being absolutely
on the level, and I am sure the press

be watched with interest. Despite the.
clnssy ball they have been dishing up
the Oaks do not figure to do much,
for Hogan's hirelings are known as
fighters from the word go, and with

Arollanes, Pape and Whalen twirling 1
like bear kittens, It will take Krapp,
Gregg and Steen to beat them off, and

given a chance to cop the bunting, and
the Angels are playing such poor ball
they are hardly interesting to the fans.
Berry's boys went north last night In
a crippled condition, for Delmas is
unablo to go on tho field and Wheeler
is being used at short field. Delhi la
along on this trip, while Thorsen, War-
Ing, Nast and Klein remain at home.
AVarlng will go to the springs to try
and boil the stiffness out of his limbs,
but Nast will be kept close to homo,
as he may be needed on the northern
