Gns Pappas, the Greek man tosser,
celebrated, homecoming night at. tha
Family theatre by defeating the eaet
ern product, Fred Hans of Washing
ton, D. C. In two straight falls. The
first came in 25 minutes and the sec
ond feat was accomplished in just 22
minutes. A crowd of approximately
150 fans joined in the celebration, and
what the bunch lacked in numb?rs it
evened up by an abundance of en
thusiasm. same: old gus.
Cub proved to the home folkg that
he has lost none of his old time cun
ning, and when we are tcld that he
went two hours and 15 minutes up in
Canada- with this self same Hans,
without either one of them getti?g a
fall, we are inclined to the belief that
Pappas must have been ofT color, for
he experienced no difficulty in brush
ing the Washington man out" of his
path laet night. The match was fairly
fast all the way through. Hans ig a
big burly boy who will outweigh the
Greek by at least 20 pounds. Gus
pinned his opponent's shoulders to the
mat for the first fall with a scissors
on the body, aad negotiated the sec
end by reason of a leg and arm lock.
The big brunette expects to be with
us the coming winter, and some good
cold evening entertainments are antici

The match that drew the big nand
was the preliminary between Robert
Byair.d of Moline and Jack Harmon of
Chicago, the latter's real monicker
being Webber Scott, and his bona fide
residence Moline. Bylund won in two
straight falls, the first in 15 minutes
with a scissors on the bead and he

Young Freeman of Moline showed
his superiority over George Bradil,
also cf Moline, getting both falls in
10' minutes. The first came after a
nine minute struggle, being negotiated
with a scissors on the body. The sec
end was a cinch, the old hammerlock
doing the work in just exactly a min

Ex-Islander Supplants Morris j
Rath at Second Base
Makes Fine Showing.
Joe "Heinle" Berger has finally
landed a regular berth with the White
Sox. After warming the bench since
the opening of the season, because
Manager Jimmie Callahan could not
see why "Buck" Weaver thould be de
posed by the Pacific coast phenom,
good fortune came to the ex-Islandr
yesterday from i n entirely unexpected
Morris Rath, the sterling second
eaokcr, was given the hook, because
of a batting slump, and Joe was shov
ed in to fill 'his shoes. Berger showed
class all the way, and although he did
not exec ute heavily with the hiikory,
stole third haso and romped home
with the winning run. when Sweeney
threw the ball away into right gar
den. Chicago sporting scribes are
unanimous in their praise of Joe's
work, and predict for hira a perma
nent lease en the keystone sack.
James Ciarkson of the Examiner
has the following to say:
"Manager Ca.iahan shook up his
lineup before the contest started. He
decided that the bench was a better
place for Morris Rath than it was
for Joe Berger and sant the recruit
to the second station. The box score
may ehow that Joe did little execution
with the stick, but if you will Btudy
it carefully you will see that he se
cured a pair of passes; also that he
scored a couple of runs, and that he
stole a base. And it was this latter
which put what proved the winning
run across (he pan. For Joe stole
third and so surprised was Ed Swee
ney that he threw the ball into left
field and Berger hiked the rerstinder
of the distance to the pan. Ber
ger gave an excellent reason why he
should remain in the lineup when he
scored a run with but little assistance
in the fifth. He walked as a starter
and went to second while Lord was
going out, second to first. Joe then
displayed a lot of pep and stole third.
Someone told Sweeney that the Sox
were not in the habit of doing this,
and it so surprised him that he shot
the ball into left field and the substi
tute kept right on going. He scored
so easily that no throw was made to
Again, in his Sox cotes, Clarksoa
says: "Berger accepted every chance
which came his way and his daring on
the bases gave the Sox one run. The
box score shows that to be the mar
gin by which they won."
