It has been many a shifting, crim son moon before one section has cleaned up as tidily a3 the West has this season in the two playing sports golf and lawn tennis. We mention these as the two play ing sports against baseball and foot ball, which, essentially, in so far as the major part of the public is con cerned, are spectatorial affairs. In the various leagues there are 10,000 ball players represented, against 5,000,000 spectators. In the larger football games there are f-everal thousand players represented, against a million or so spectators. But in golf and lawn tennis there are over a million players for each game, against far less that number of spec tators. Briefly, as the saying is, more people watch baseball and football; and more people play golf and tennis. The West Revenged. Last season the East held all the laurelled brows. Ouimet, from Bos ton, was amateur golf champion, with Williams, from Philadelphia, amateur i&wn tennis champion. . The West was nowhere, minus 4. But this season the Western sweep has been complete. In golf the West cleaned) up in all four leading points at De troit cleaned up every way there was in match and medal glory and In team matches where the two sections were thrown together. There wasn't even a wisp of laurel for the. East to wrap around its clammy brow. In lawn tennis the sweep has been universal. In the first meeting of East vs. West the Pacific Coast coutry won easily at home. Coming on to the Forest Hills championship, the West had every thing sewed before the final round. McLoughlin and Johnston, both from California, fought the championship out with no Eastern man around, and however the doubles championship terminates the West is bound to win, there being only Westerners regis tered on the book. lose a large portion of its once crim son glow. Cobb's Prediction. Back in Detroit several days agK Ty Cobb predicted that the Red Sox would not do nearly as .well at home as every one' figured they would. "In ihe first place," he said, "they are over confident. In the second place, contrary to general opinion, It is cesier to make a fight through the ttretch on the road than at home. Just watch and wait." Ty's prediction got a running start on Monday, when the Yanks, who had dropped five out of six in De troit, dropped the leaders In a double decker. This double conquest of the Yanks undoubtedly revived the droop ing Tigers again, and if Detroit wins f.he can lay most of her glory to Col. Donovan & Co. Building Up Interest. All of which is inclined to increase interest in intersectional matches enormously. The East has rather Uken it for granted heretofore that in such competition the West made a very logical runner-up; but that as a winner it's goose was cooked brown before the start was made. The showing that the West has made recently in the two most im portant playing games is sure to stir the East up and to revive the droop ing spirit of the West. The Elast can row understand that it is far from being the whole show, including the hard blue seats, the elephants, the pink lemonade and the peanuts. In the two-ring circus it has drawn1 the smaller ring for 1915 smaller by a number of rods. And the East can well be counted upon to rise and get started again. How About Brooklyn? "How about Brooklyn?" is now the favorite query in the land where the rampant Dodger makes his home. There isn't any answer. Any citi zen, expert or such, who can dope out the Dodgers Is entitled to a Jtar In his prophetic crown. The Dodger flre there when you figure they won't be and they are absent when you ligure them at hand. Possessing such highly erratic qualities, they are now likely to play like a streak on the road, because no one figures them as a strong road club. Certainly, a club that has Ptuck around the Crest as long as they have is not to be Jeered and joshed out of the flag competition. Their ability at a critical, if not crucial moment, to ring in an old friend, to toss two harpoons into the leaders is testimony enough that they are not yet through. They are supposed to have been out of this race, far back of the giddy jubilee, many weeks ago. But here September Is slipping by and they are still around making a noise which closely resembles the flapping of a Hag. And there you are; JOHNSTON IS CHAMP; BEATS McLOUGHLIN I Dashing Californian Beats Former For the Big Stuff. With Europe eliminated as a com petitor for several years, sporting in terest must be maintained with inter sectional matches. Contrary to some opinions, such matches never breed ill-feeling. They are for the best in terests of the game, for they bring the two sections closer together. And the East can no longer figure now that the West is not to be re garded as the worthy rival in every way and along every line. Any sec tion which has such golfers as Bob Gardner, Chick Evans, Ned Sawyer, Jimmy Standish and others, with auch tennis stars as McLoughlin, Johnston, Griffin, Stratchan, Bundy, etc., is not to be figured as any lesser light. Especially when said section has rambled on to glory in almost every competition staged. That X. L. Race. Those backingr the Phillies had a close call Labor Day, but they are row in position to cheer up again. When the Superbas dropped the Phil lies twice in one September day, a double Brave victory would have had a depressing effect on Moran's club. It would undoubtedly have been the turning point of the race, pointing in the end to a Brave triumph. But now the Phillies have not only maintained their margin, but in ad dition they have taken heart in the knowledge that the Braves of 1915 are not the Miracle People of a year ago. Teacher and Takes. Title, Forest Hills, L I.. Sept. 8. Wil liam M. Johnston inscribed his name upon the classic national tennis singles championship most impres sively yesterday, using a forehand stroke that left no dispute as to hi right to the title. The young play er, who two seasons ago was hailed as the successor to Maurice E. Mc Loughlin, made good the prediction by the score of 1-6, 6-0, 7-5, 10-8, while thousands cheered the van quished McLoughlin and the new holder of the highest honors of the American courts. It was a memor able battle and an inspiring scene at the climax on the field of the West Side Tennis club, at Forest Hills, L. I., when the two men fighting for a sporting honor, and fighting with all that was In them, almost collapsed at the end and hoisted on the should ers of their comrades with the cheers of the 7,000 epectators ringing in their ears, were carried from the field.

Neenan.) xnree tnousana people attended the Connecticut Fair yesterday, and wit nessed one of the best racine events f seen on the grand circuit this tea son. The track was a little slow ow ing to the rain at noon. In the 2;10 pace eight horses an swered the bell. There were two features In connection with this race, the fast time made, and the master- ful driving of Ed. Geers. Hal Boy, with Dick McMahon up, pulled down the first heat from Rus sell Boy, the Oeers stable entry, in an eye lash finish in 2:05 1-4, with Aconite a close third. The second heat Judge Ormonde won, but only In a drive that brought the audience to their feet, the time being 2:61 1-2. In the third heat Valentine with -Judge Ormond and Geers with Rua . sell Boy had a furious drive to the wire in 2:04 1-2, Judge Ormond just nosing out Russell Boy with the field well bunched. Cheers from the audience greeted Russell Boy, Judge Ormond and Peter Farren, as the three stallions rushed down the stretch in the fourth heat." Oeers had the speed but a foul drive by Valentine prevented him from get. ting through. The result was that Valentine with Judge Ormond, a two heat winner in a $2,000 race, was ruled out. The heat went to Oeers. The time was 2:05 flat. Excitement was running high when ; they went away for the fifth heat. Murphy with Peter Farren and Mc- Mahon with Hal Boy were boiling with speed over on the back stretch ! with RiimcII Tlrtv trntllno- Turmlno'M into the stretch Geers set Russell Boy down for a hard drive. The big stallion answered every call that was made on him, and in a nostril finish won the heat in 2:06 from Peter Far-" ren. With five heats, the slowest being 2:06 the Tace went over on today's program. Volga, the great two year old filly , from Billy Andrews' stable, won the two year old trot easily in straight heats in 2:25 1-4 and 2:19 3-4 from Libya and Setzer Mac. The time of the heats in the race were so slow that Andrews gave her a work"'" out after the race, a mile in 2:10. The 2:10 trot was won by Mirthful in straight heats in, 2:11 1-4, 2:07 3-4, 2:08 3-4. Guy Nella, Airdale and Duchess were also In the money. Henry F, from the Pastime stables . was distanced.
