A LOSER FOR GAL
Breaks Up Winning Combina
tion, Easterly Going Behind
Bat Instead of Schalk.
Chicago, May 20. Manager Calla
han defied baseball tradition and
switched a winning combination yes
terday in the opening game of the
series with Boston's world's cham
pions by appointing Easterly instead
of Schalk receiver. The result was
Red Sox. 10; White Sox, 1. which
served the home pilot right in the
minds cf those superstltiously inclin
ed, of whom we are not one. Neither,
apparently, is Callahan.
The same eight men, outside of the
slabmen, played in all four games
against New York, and it is not styl
ish la national pastime circles to
make any change, except under com
pulsion, during a winning streak. But
it required more than defiance of
fashion to produce the mess which
the White Sox perpetrated yesterday.
