Chicago, Oct. 7. The first clash in
the battle for the world s baseball
championship will come off in Chicago
tomorrow, if the weather man does not
prevent. The first two games of the
series will be played on the west side
grounds, then three in Detroit, and a
sixth in this city if necessary. The
rival teams will divide the players'
share of the receipts !0 per cent to t.ie
winner and 40 per cent to tlie loser,
and there will be no admissions sold
These were the most important of
the many details settled by the national
commission which took formal charge
of the world's series yesterday during
its special meeting at the Annex, th

by President C. W. Murphy and the
Detroit champions by Secretary Frank

rvins out the schedule as prepared. If
either of the first two games scheduled
in Chicago Is postponed the teams will
remain here and play it off before go
ing to Detroit. In the same way, u
any of the games scheduled for Detroit
are prevented they will be played off
on the Tigers' grounds, except that il
the series lasts that long, the game of
Sunday will be played in Chicago, on
account of the inferior size of the De
troit plant which will be swamped tin
der week day crowds, without taking
chances of handling a Sunday crush
dinner HKlNion of ImI.
Hitherto the rules governing the'
world's series called for a division of
the players' pool 75 per cent to the
winner and 23 per cent to the loser
This has been changed to award CO
per cent to the winner and 40 per cent
to the loser. ...
This players pool is made up of a
portion of .the receipts of the first four
games odly, insuring a decision of the
series in four straight games if possi
ble: After deducting 10 per cent of the
gross receipts" of the first four games
for the national commission's expenses
in conducting the series, CO per cent
of the balance is set aside for the play
ers and 40 per cent for the club own
crs, who divide their shares of the re
ceipts equally. If more fhanjfour games
are played the players ot no share in
the receipts from them, the club own
ers dividing them half hud half after
the national commission 10 per cent
Double Atlntlnxlon lr;rM.
Doubling the price of general admis
sion tickets was considered necessary
on account of the small size of the De
troit grounds and the facl only a part
of the patrons willing t
prices can be accommodated. The sca.e
ill be slightly different in the two
cities. In Chicago $1 will be charged
for all scats except the grand stand
and boxes, $1.50 for grand stand seats,
and J2 for box seats. In Detroit the
general admission will be the same, but
the entire grand stand will be reserved
at S2 a seat and a limited supply of
box seats will be, or, rather, have been,
disposed of at $2.50. These prices were
fixed by the national commission, and
not by the club officials.
The games in Chicago will be start
ed at 2:30 o'clock and in Detroit at 2
o'clock, the difference in local or "sun"
time making it necessary to commence
earlier In the Tiger city than here.
In case it becomes necessary to play
the seventh game- the city in which it
to be played will be determined bv
the commission, as provided for by rule
C, and at the time designated by sup
plemental rule No. 4.

Under section 12, President Pulliam

The official scorers selected by the

The Cub boss has under considera
tion a plan to quarter the players at

ENOUGH AND MORE
Rock Island High School Scores
63 Points in First Football
Game of the Season.
VISITORS FAIL TO TALLi
Washington Proves No Match for the
Second Team, Even Moiine Loses
to Monmouth College.
The high school football team bad an
easy contest Saturday afternoon at I
land City ball park when they iinej up
against the eleven from the Washing-
ton, Iowa, school. The score was G: to
0. giving evidence of the superiority of
the Rock Island boys.
The game was played entirely in
Washington's territory, and time and
again the Rock Island halves plowed
through their opponent's line for gains
of from 5 to 20 yards. An even more
overwhelming score would have result
ed, but Coach Hall in the second half
put in all of the substitutes and at tlie
close of the game practically the en
tire second team was holding the vis
itors and making occasional good gains
on them. Rock Island had a consider
able advantage in weight, but far out
classed their opponents also in play
ing, passing the ball with more accura
cy, tackling m better torm and main
taining a much better interference.
Hotter Thnn Wsin Thought.
One result of the game is that Rock
Island is seen to have a better team
this season than many had surmised it
to be. As more than half of the play
ers are in their first regular season, it
was thought that their newness would
prove a weakness to tlie team as a
whole, but they proved themselves able
players in every department of the
The game itself Saturday was a con
tinuous series of long gains by the
home team, as following each kick off
the players went down the field stead
ily toward Washington's goal and scor
ed generally within five minutes of
play following the kick off. Two-thirds
of the scoring was done in the first
ubs in the second half
pushed the visitors before them much
as me regular team and easily were
Slaughter, the colored boy at left
half, filled his position remarkably well
for a new player and made a good por
tion of Rock Island's points. Fraser at
end played in his usual excellent man
ner and placed many long end runs to
his credit, while his tackling was a
feature. In nlavinn ouarter I.iitt nrov-

I back field nu n. The line was good in
holding and in interference and showed
strength at every position.
J ne game ended without any very
remarkable plays taking place. In the
first half Benson for Rock Island caught
the ball while Washington attempted a
forward pass and carried it over the
goal line. In the second half the visi
tors, after catching a putt, were forced
over their own goal line. Rock Island
thus scoring a safety. Paul was used
in drop kicking and succeeded in two
out of four attempts. In this depart
ment of the game as well as in goal
1 kicking, for which Llitt is being used,
it was seen that more practice is need
ed. Liitt missed more than hal fof his
trials for goal.
A crowd of 300 witnessed the contest
and the high school colors and the root
ing were again in vogue. Tlie school
members tried their new yells to good
effect, with the girl and boy yell mas
ters leading the crowd.
One of Washington's players, Turner,
was injured in the first half, receiving
a bruised arm. Otherwise the game
was without any accidents.

Davenport Tien with Clinton.
I Davenport high school tied with Clin-
cton higa school in the latter city Sat-
urday afternoon and was glad to get
an even break. The score was C to C.
In the first half Clinton kept the ball
in Davenport's territory most of the
time and several chances to score were
lost through fumbles before the ball
was finally sent over and goal kicked.
In the second half Davenport came
back strong and kept the home eleven
on the defensive.
