P. A. C. PROTEST
TO BE DECIDED
Pro and Con of Last Sunday's
Game Will be Threshed Out

The protest of the Portuguese Ath

Athletic Union in last Sunday's 12-
inning game at. Athletic iark, will be
threshed out at a meeting cf ; the
league directors this evening. The
local baseball body "will get together

The contention cf the Portuguese,
that Jfoe Ornellas was entitled to two
bases on a play that came up in the
eighth Inning, when a sacrifice fly to

Ornellas being on second, has created
a lot of discussion among the fans
who saw the game. An overthrow to
third resulted on the play and Ornellas
came home from second, but both um
pires are agreed that the runner made
no attempt to advance a base on the
caught fly and" that he was entitled to
only one base on the overthrow, and
he wag therefore sent back to third.
Had the run been allowed, the Portu

United States May
Draw the Olympic
Games From Germany
Besides being the means of calling
off ' the International yacht races In
September, and stopping the speed
beat races scheduled for Cowes, Eng
land, the European war new threatens
the IS 16 Olympic games that were to
be held !n Berlin. Germany. In fact,
so certain are Chicago sportsmen that
it will be Impossible to stage the
Berlin meet, should hostilities ceaee,
that they have begun a campaign that
alms tc bring the games to America,
preferably to the Windy City.
Will Last Year ..
Assuming that the frightful conflict
of nations lasts for a year it can
hardly occupy less time there will
then be left but ten months before
the Berlin Olympic games will be due
to open. Aside from the aspect of
financial and athletic preparation or
the games the temperament of the
athletes of the European nations
would be in no condition to allow them
to take part In International com pet !

I9i6y" ''pPppVPp'pPp-,)
Should Germany and Austria, whip
England, France and Russia, these na
tions would almost surely find a ready
excuse to sidestep the meet at Berlin
The wound of defeat would still be
an open one far too, sore to heal In
anything like a yean, ;v " i
On the other hand, should England's
great navy and the millions of - Russia
and France humble Germany the ath
letes "cf these nations, full of the spirit
of triumph, would not be welcome
guests at . Berlin. . It U likely that in
the event of a German defeat the 1916
Olympics would be abandoned alto

In the event of the International
committee adopting the latter course
the 1916 games would be held in the

And They've Come Through Steadily Since This Story Was
r ; ; Written Only : Half a Ga me Behind New York This
c Morning.
BY CHRISTY; M ATHEWSON.
'..Just before the Boston club started
west on Jta last trip and the fine win
ning streak that finally carried it into
the- first division, "."Johnny" Evers
said to me: .X y: y;'y.- :: '
: "We may not be. a contender this
year, Matty, but there is a lot of pep'
in our club, and : 1 figure we are go
ing to take the heart out of two or
three teams fighting for the lead be
fore we get through." ; . , . '-...V
Shortly afterwards; Stalllngs broke
into Chicago and took, three out of
four, from the Cubs just when: the
Chicago team had a chance to climb
Into first place because the Cardinals
were trimming the Giants. ' Next the
Boston' club: moved into. St JLouis
while the Giants were breaking even
with the Cubs and stopped the Card-!
inals at a time when they had a grand
opportunity to Uiuye up within striking
distance of the front" Later,. when thej
western.' llubsi came - east ; the Cubs
made their first. stop In Boston, when
they "Were hanging ; to the Giants'
heels. The Graves-gave them a bat
tle all -the way and took two. out of
three games from them, . thus handing
u a chanca; to gain -slightly. Evers'
prediction came very true. , .
The Boston club is playing wonder
ful ball, and. at its' present pace, may
even do better than . Evers - predicted.
It may become a contender, in anoth
er month. If .the .leaders should be at
tacked with " a j spell of sloppy ball
such as they had about a , month .-ago.,
You can never tell in ..this freak year.
Anyway, we are all afraid of Boston
when. we meet it in a series. : , -Boston
May Decide . Pennant .1" ;
, ; A team like the Boston club decides
many . a pennant race,!", even If Jt is
not up among the pacemakers itself,
because, it has the ability, to beat the
best of them and carries. a punch that
all the other clubs are afraid'- of. It
also has -a. psychological advantage.
The Cubs, for Instance, were fighting
to hang within striking, distance of
the Giants when they came east
which meant that they would have to
w in 1 every 1 time .; the Giants came
through with a victory to hold their
position. Realizing this , when" they
went; into each game, they divided
their attention between their own bat
tle and the bulletin board to bTwerve
the . progress, of the -Giants' ? content
They were "pl-iyin? uner ' a strs?n,
amateur championship ' g6lf tourna
play. 7 :.v -f:;V. v... - :
while the Boston club had the fight
and; go, and no such immediate big
stake to work for. Therefore, the lat
ters players naturally 'felt that they
could afford to. take bigger chances.
The bulletin . boards in the parks
may be a good thing for the specta
tors, to keep them in touch- with the
progress of the; various? games, but
they are harmful to the players in a
tighfrace! of this sort The men on
the teams fighting for, the lead watch
the ' score of " the important : game of
the contenders as it is posted, and un
consciously it often distracts ther at
tentlon from their work in.hand. V
. "If I had anything Jo say about it,"
complained McGraw one day, when
half of his . players' vere anxiously
watching the Cubs' score in Boston
hung out, "I would not have a bulletin
board 'in' the park. -It only adds to
the strain on a ieam fighting . for the
pennant y I'm going to fine the next
man I find watching P. that score
board., y . Y- -
Sees Break in League Race.
I don't like' to see the race in tthe
National league between s the! Giants
and the Cubs hold up as close as it
has been much longer. The strain is
too great, and one of the teams is
bound to break under It It has kept
McGraw driving every .Inch of the dis
tance recently, but I figure that our
club has an advantage over the Cubs
just now. .We have come through a
slump, and the play of the team is im
proving,, with the staff delivering bet
ter pitching." The Cubs are playing
away from home, and O'Day cannot
be x classed with McGraw when It
comes to pushing a team and getting
every ounce of baseball out of It. The
series - between . the two clubs this
week Is extremely important, and may
crack one of the teams. Baseball
machines will split open suddenly.
On the other hand there are a lot
of, steady veterans among the Cubs,
while the Giants have a collection cf
young timber In the lineup. Chicago
is most apt to weaken in the pitching
staff, as some of the twirlers are get-
ting the big share of the work. Che
ney is not as strong as he was, for
O'Day has kept him at it very stead
ily. The Giants staff is in -; better
shape right ? now than it has been at
any- other time this season. -

JACK JOHNSON

Jack Johnson is to be barred perma

go through. The full exposure of

published, In yEchodea Sports. hasted tQe oppogj-jg pitcher to such an
finished the black champion's career
In France, and as he's barred practi
cally everywhere else In the world,
he's through with the sport
L'Echo prints what Is said to be
facsimile of a typewritten agreement
given Moran's manager by Johnson,
which reads as follows:
"June 27th. 1914.
"I hereby agree' to divide the re
ceipts of my contest with Frank Mo

per cent to Moran and 60 per cent Co

After that signature follows another
line. written in the same hand, which
reads: "After fight must return this
receipt"
Moran. It.annears from this, "double-crossed"
Johnson by not lying

people were "In the know" and there
was heavy betting that Moran would
be knocked out In less than ten;

Huggins : certainly deserves great

he will need, unless he is very lucky

Some r Expert Opinion."
"Baseball lacks the stately dignity ot
cricket It Is a strenuous and hustlln.
if not a highjy skilled game. It has
many merits. It should appeal to a
public whose ideals have been speeded
up by professional football.
-The impression that this match con
veyed was that a splendid eye Is need
ed for success as a batsman. The bat
which is no more than three and a half
inches wide, is held at right angles to
the body, chest high."
Then the expert goes on to describe
some of the rules of the game. Here is
the description of one rule, but It must
be one they concocted In England. No
one seem to know anything about it
over here:
"A batter Is allowed to mint only
one ball which the umpire passes as a
good one. On a second offense he is
ruled out".

to dismiss the subject, there Is still a
persistence on the part of the govern- '
mental powers that be to obtain.-ar far
as possible the really1 true oplnlon-of
Jhejiankxand flle.of, golfers throuUout.
the country as to" hd really' constl-,
tutes an amateur golfer. v
Much has been said and written1 to
the effect thtt Robert C. Watson, pres
ident of, the United States Golf Asso
ciation, is a man who is not willing to
give way unless It , be conclusively
proved that he is decidedly In error.
When Watson gave out statements to
all the club members of the United
States Golf Association, declaring that ..
certain abuses had crept into the game,
there was much ado. Watson never
gave these views to the public, al
though he sent them to all the clubs of
the United States Golf Association.
None the less, they cropped out and
caused some furor,
Watson's explanation appeared
shortly afterward. It was an interest
ing view which explained that men
who had made the newspaper business
their profession could not well be
called professional golfers. But the
president stated, those who had been In
other lines of business and had, be
cause of the reputation obtained on the
golf links, decided to become profes
sional writers about the sport were not
exempt from the . ruling which made
them professional golfers. V
There might have been much more
argument had not the president merely
submitted bis views to the golfers of ,
the country with the statement he
did not wish ;to retire from office un- '
der the Impression ' that be was
afraid to call' attention to the exist
ing evils. That is the plain reason
for It all. ..; ;
