Ntwt and Views Truth and Sincerity HALF Os EASILRH PART Os AMERICAN LEAGUE IS HERE KEPII PLOTTING Washington Team Joins Mack’s Bunch —Want To Get Red Sox C. BROWN PUT TO TEST Tigers Had the Youngster in Many Holes—Finally Con nie Yanked Him Out BY RALPH L. YOSKER. Half of the eastern department of the American league Is at the Cadillac hotel plotting the overthrow of the Red Sox. Refore the Athletic* were able to get away from the Jungle, In came the Senators. Both teams are staying at the same hotel and there Connie Mack and Clarke Griffith have the finest kind of a chance to plan the downfall |of their most formidable enemy, the .Red Sox. Naturally enough baseball talk Is predominant about the hotel lobby •The old timers of the world s cham pion crew are exchanging observa tions with the youngsters of the world's champion kid team. Although the Athletic* are general ly conceded by their enemies to be out of the pennant race, leaving the struggle to Boston, Washington anil Chicago, the Mackmen are as yet not so sure that they aren’t going to snatch some of the big series coin. However, they will have to play bet ter baseball than that which took 11 Innings to win from the Tigers, hit ting Work* In bunches as they were yesterday, to win any pennant. Mack’s using his young pitchers as he is Is taken to mean that he is Just trying them out preparatory to making stars of them next year. This man Brown, for Instance, whom he used yesterday was put to the bit terest kind of an acid test by the fero cious Tigers. Time and time again Tigers were ready to score, but the kid kept his nerve and kept the Tiger nostrils Just below water. It was hard for Connie to have to yank Brown. He would have liked to have seen the boy stand the strain and won his game. Young pitchers are fragile pieces of machinery. Confi dence Is the one thing that must be inspired In them. That Is the reason so many pitching recruits are saved until a game that is almost sure to be won comes along. Winning the first game gives them that poise that they ( find so necessary. Brown stood most of the game, but the Tigers ground him down In the eighth and completed his humiliation in the next inning. If ever a kid wa* hut put to It that was Carol Brown In the eighth Inning. Louden and Morlarty had popped out when our newcomer, Deal, started a rally with a double. A hopeless lead of three runs stared the Tigers In the face. But we find It necessary to have two men out before we can start winning games. Stanage surprised himself bv a surprise In that it was such a neat, surprise in that It wass uch a neat, clean hit Spin usually hits down on them and drives them fast past the lnflelders.

Cobb did his best to annoy the youngster while Bush was batting and the midget got i walk, forcing in Vltt with the run that nearly tied. Then Cobb u»;ed all the maneuvers his fertile brain could think of to rat tle the youngster and got him Into a 3-2 hole. Everybody started with the pitch; Cobb hit to Barry. He sped to ward Mclnnes as never before and completed hi* Journey with a light ning slide, but he was too late. Bar ry's throw had beat him. The strain of this Inning had weak ened Brown, evidently, for the next saw his downfall. Bill Donovan s work was very Inter esting and Instructive. It looks as If the old-time smile and the old-time speed and the old-time curve were all there. BUI had about everything that was necessary. His fast one. his slow one. they were all good. While Bill may be valuable as a scout. It is evi dent that he has some pitching left In him too. Ralph Works pitched great ball part of the time and some very ineffective stuff at others. The Athlet'cs played the waiting game on him, saving up their clouts for bunches Eddie Plank, who relieved Brown, was In good form. As he went In when the score was tied he gets offl clal credit for the victory. This man Deal reaembles George Morlarty at the bat a whole lot. He has the Morrie crouch, he puts his left loot the slightest fraction of an Inch from the d«ad line, crowding the plat** as much as possible. In batting, how. ever, he falls to step into the ball, but steps away from It. j Barry’s double in the eleventh, fol lowed by two outs and Maggert's sin gle meant the run that put an end to It. Maggert was caught off first by Bill Donovan’s pretty motion, but the damage had been done.

When they failed to pay sal aries to their players, they noted the players were getting indifferent, so proceeded to fine the players SSO each all around. Then the players struck aud Alliance went out of the league for lack of a team. Another case of , the wrong people being allowed to break into the game under protection. Phillies Have College Nine.

Lurid Lou Richie, the Giant killer, was Invincible until the eighth when he got sore at the umpire and was derrlcked. Then came cool, calm Reulbach, who held the leaders at his mercy. The GianU claimed all sorts of bad luck, but errors by Doyle and Murray, with eight hits for the Cubs and five for New York, told the real story. The Red Sox made It three straight at Chicago while the Cubs were doing the same at New York. The Reds faced Nap Rucker again—the result was three straight for the Superbaa. Bunching hits In the seventh won for the Phillies from the Pi rates. The Browns turned the tabies cn the Yanks in a close contest. I McFarland to Meet McCartney. CHICAGO.
