The New York Dilemma
New York's array of fanatical rooters have been caught in a queer jam of
laU. Tbiy have been pulling lustily all year for two National League results:
Ont. it for the Giant? to win.
The other is for Christy Mathewson to upset ancient Red traditions.
They still remember Matty, and if the old Giant favorite should lift hil
people to the top the cheers would likely be eTen louder than those following a
There are undoubtedly as many fans In New York pulling for a Mathewson
triumph as there ore fais pulling for the Giants. At their last clash in New
York the bulk of the crowd was with the Reds in every inning of every game.
If Mathewson should hold his Reds In second place all records for forty
years would be cracked, smashed and splintered.
In their entire National League history the Reds have finished second but
once. That was a matter of thirty-nine years ago, bacN in 1878, when J. N. \V.
Neff came near carrying them to the top.
Thirty-nine years form quite a parcel of time. A number of things have
happened since 18T?, tak*n here and there, and if Matty arrives this close to
the fiont his name as a manager will be established. He will belong with
the few geniuses who have achieved the impossible.
The End of Compel'tion
A few days ago we ran aeros?. George? Myara '"hurch, the famous tennis
player, who stopped McLoughlin at Forest Hill-, 1.-st summer.
Church was arrayed in khaki, awaiting his lie-itenant's commission in the

will still play the game if I am around at the end of the wer, but I n?.'er
expect to be anywhere near championship form after this work is over. And I
doubt very much whether I will ever enter another national champion*!", p.
Once you lose your grip upon this game, there is very little chance of ever
getting back again among the front rank."
As most of the leading tennis nlayers have entered servi;e, there will rrry
likely be a new list of names when championship play Is resumed in the dis?

Some Signs of Hope I
I In the Yankees Yet
St. Louis Browns Meet Defeat as Result of Two Hits
Which Score Three Runs in Third Inn?
ing?Pipp Wakes Up
By W. O. McGHEEHAN
By the use of efficiency that was almost Teutonic the Yankees beat
the St. Louis Browns by the close tally of 3 to 2 at the Polo Grounds yes?
terday. The Yankees got three runs by employing only two hits in the
?hird, and that was enough to capture the pastime
It is true that one of the hits was r double and the other it triple.
but it's a good sign and a hopeful one. The Yanks have been piling up
the maximum of hits for the minimum of runs so often that yesterday's
reversal of form looks like a promise of permanent reformation. Cor- '
tainly it was an improvement on the last game with the White Sox,}
where the Yanks got only two runs out of six concentrated hits, a base
on balls and a sacrifica.
While the Rrowns arc tail-enders at;

trounce them is music to the ears and

But the worst of their jinxes is the St.
j Louis Browns. Consequently, students
of the occult are inclined to giv? a
' grggt deal of credit for this su.! len

the six-toed Senegambian who has
been dispelling misfortune for the
Yankees for the last few day?.

Wilhoit, New Player for Mc
Gravv Men, Makes Im?
Pittsburgh, Jil*> 30. In an old-fash?
ion,..i llaggiag bee, that reminded the
gray beards of Hie good old days ?>f ten
years ago when the National League
was a closed corporation to the Pirates,
Giants and Cubs, IVihurgh this after?
noon resurrected itself from the past
and smote the pace-making Glanta
between the eyes. Though badly
ojthit by the league loader.?, BezdeVs
t. am was ngrgr outgamed or outplayed,
and ?inishe.i without having to take its
ninth turn at bat on the long end o? a
4 to | .
In spite of the reverse thero was
some leaven to the loaf of the ciub
tha. || expected to meit Ban Johnson's
best in the next world's series. Wil?
hoit, the new outfielder secured from
Louisville for pitcher Jimmy Middleton,
jumped right into the fracas a, fev
hours after he hit camp and started his
major league career very much as if he
fit major league togs.
Wilhoit, RggJfBtd to Davey Robert?
son's patrol, scored two of New York's
three runs and blew himself to a couplo
of hits in four t.mes at but With .1
little luck he might have had four hit?
for two of his drives, that travelled
right at Aaldarg. ergr? ga ? ckedly
dru en as any of the afternoon.
Giants Rather Tame
On his introduction Mr A'ilhoit did
not lind his teammates in their usually
vicious und ferocious mood. Tha Giants
did not do theiiselves justice ?TRaR
their many opportunities are consid?
ered. Fifteen hits for sixteen ba,<*
with four passes thrown in should be
good for more than three runs to a
team of the resource and speed of the
Almost all the time the visitors had
the base paths cluttered up uith run?
ners, but they found it extrem, ly dif?
ficult to score. This was partly due t.?
the break of the game, for it must be
confessed New York hit in hard luck
all the time. It was also die Li R
mensure to careless base running.
Take the first inning. Bunts ?TRlk I I
and Kauft' fanned after Hi rtog stru-'i
out. Zimmerman hit into a donbla
play. Three singles by Wilhoit,
Koike and Raridan bunched In order,
with one out in the second, pave or\ :
one run. Wagner caught Holke g1
plato on a wt-jik tap by Pinch Hitter
Kauf1 and Zimmerman singled in or?
der in the third, with only one gone.
Fletcher this time hit into a doubl.?
play. Fletcher was doubled off
on Wilhoit's line drive to Boerk"! n
the fifth. Arthur and Zimmerman ha.I
just singled, with one out. 'Ihete ne
a few examples of the breaks.
Get Jump on Jeff
Pittsburgh got the jump cn Jeff
Tesreau In the first inn.ni-, when M '
feat, Carey and King singled in order
for two runs. The Giants got one of
these back in the second. Wilhoit
bunted safely, with one out liRftei
hy Koike and Rariden got him afOl B I,
A ?Ingle by Fred Anderson, tied the
score in the fourth as it drove '\
home from second. Wilhoit had sin?
gled to start the inning. Andersen,
however, threw this run right luck ti
the Pirates in the second half by gril I
pitching Ward in from taeond Wir!
and Bebus had singled with one out.
The Pirates got their last run in the
eighth, o'T i'ol Perritt, og
double, Wagner's sacrifice and Ward's
hunt hit. When Burns opened Rag
ninth with a double southpaw Cooper
was sent to the re.-.eue of Carlson. The
latter fanned Barga*, Kauft* s nyled,
scoring Burns. Zimmerman, however,
tapped to the box, while Fletcher Hied
