Yankees Lose First Place in Close Twelve-Inning Game With the Browns
Failure of 'Squeeze* Blow to Huggins s Men Bad Break Comes in Tenth of Twelve-Inn in g Struggle? Slim Love Ordered Out of Game?Contest Hard? est Fought of Many Months ST. LOUIS, June 9.?A squeeze play failed this afternoon in the tenth inning of a hard-fought battle between the Yankees and the St. Louis Browns, with Pipp on third base and M?rsans at the plate. Had it gone through the Yanks would have made it five straight over the Jones crowd and held their position at the head of the American League race. It was the last real chance the* Yankees had, and the verdict went against them, 5 to 4, in the Browns' half of the twelfth. On this defeat the Huggins crowd bounded back into sec en.i place. The failure of the Yankees to score in the tenth was but a sample of what was happening lime and again through? out the hottest game of the series on j One of the hottest days of the year at Sportsman's Park. Filling up the bases ; to go out runless fell to both clubs, the : Browns making a dismal failure in their ninth, when they crowded the j sacks with nobody out on Austin's doable, a scratch hit by Sisler and a ; pass to Hendnx. This big opportunity slipped away because neither Demmitt nor Gedeon could hit out of the infield, the latter bounding to Mogridgc for a (iouble play. Slim Love Gets Gate The odd sight of Slim Love having himself ordere? out of a ball game en? livened the affair in the fourth chap? ter. Slim had Catcher Hale in a hole with two strikes against him and was positive that he had sneaked over a liitrd strike. Umpire George Moriarty called it a third ball, and Love, who had been kicking about decisions in the earlier innings, promptly wound up and threw his glove almo.st out to Ping Bodie, in left field. Moriarty threw Love out of the game without taking I any wind up. Mogridge was ready to | take his place on the mound, as he had . been warming up in the bull pen. Bert Gallia held the Yanks under his! thumb in the early innings, but in the late chapters Huggins's heavy hitters j got to him and chased him to the club house. He faded in the eighth after live batsmen had made three hard hits, a sacrifice fly and had drawn a pass. Shocker came on after his departure and gets the credit of the victory over his old team. Joe Gedeon had the dis? tinction of carrying over the winning marker to the twelfth. The Browns went to the front with two runs in the first inning, and a poor throw by Hannah, who also made the winning run possible with a poor peg, helped in the early scoring. Tobin out? ran a slow roller to Pratt, and Hannah, after fielding Austin's bunt, threw the ball over Fipp's head, allowing Tobin to score and Austin to reach third. Ilendrix chased Austin home with a double to left after Sisler had been re? tired. The Yankees collected their first run in the second inning, when Pipp hit over the bleacher rail in right field, the ball landing some distance up among the seats. In the fifth, after Mo<rridge had re? placed Love, the Browns collected an? other brace of runs. With one out Austin walked and Sisler hit a double to right, Austin pulling up at third. Hendrix was purposely walked, and Demmitt crashed into a curve for a single to right which sent both Austin and Sisler over the plate. Huggins's men got to Gallia for two hits in the sixth, and two more in the seventh, but could not score. In the < ighth they tied up the game. Peck opened with a single to left and Baker singled to right. A pass to Pratt filled the bases and Pipp's long fly to Tobin sent Peck over the plate. Bodie singled to left, scoring Baker, but Pratt was out trying to reach third on the hit. Jones called Gallia to the bench and substi? tuted Shocker, whose first pitch was wild and Bodie reached third. Ping counted when Gerber let Marsans's grounder roll through him. Good Chance for Browns The Browns had a good chance in the ninth, when they filled the bases with none out, but could not score. In the Yanks' tenth the squeeze play failed. In the home twelfth Hendryx walked, Demmitt popped out, Gedeon singled and Johns was intentionally passed, tilling the bases. Baker got Severeid's hard grounder and retired Hendryx at the plate, only to have Hannah bound the ball off Severeid's head, with an easy play in front of him that would end the inning. Gedeon scored on the misplay, winning the game. Four Golf Balls Bring $11,000 For Red Cross CHICAGO, June 9.?All records for Red Cross funds raised at golf matches were broken here to-day, when $30,000 was collected at the Lake Shore Coun? try Club during a match in which Chick Evans, national champion, and .Jame3 Barnes, Western open champion, competed against Jock Hutchinson, pa? triotic open champion, and Robert Mc? Donald, of Indian Hill Club, Chicago. The match ended all square. Hutchinson equalled the course rec? ord of 69, "set by himself, while Evans by virtue of two sixes took 72, scor? ing two twos for a record 34 on the second nine. McDonald took 74 strokes and Barnes, who was unfamiliar with the course, required 76. With Julius Rosenwald as ajc 'tioneery the game was stopped at the second tee. while the four balls used to play the first hole were purchased by the Lake Shore Club for $11,000. a record high figure for golf balls at a price of $33.000 a dozen. At the sec? ond green a more elaborate auction took place, members of the club run? ning up the price of the four balls, sold individually, until the four to? gether brought $r,,000. Similar auctions took place from tec to tee. The best ball score for Evans and Barnes was 68 and that for Hutchin? son and McDonald 67. ? ?. Cincinnati Win? Exhibition WOONSOCKET, R. I..

Tilden's Hard Driving Game Beats Voshell Philadelphian Earns Close Victory in Bronx County Tennis Singles Tilden 1 Voshell.4 Tilden.. 3 5 Voshell.5 3 Tilden.. 1 4 Voshell. 4 1 32 -29 2?25 4?32 The severe driving of William T. Tilden, 2d, of Philadelphia, earned him a hard fought victory over S. Howard Voshell, of the United States Aviation Service, in the final round of the Bronx County singles at the New York Tennis Club yesterday. Tilden's better condition aided him considerably toward the end of the game when he succeeded in often breaking through his rival's service. The score was 6?4, 4?(5, 6?2, 3?6, 6 2. Plays Smashing Game Voshell played a smashing game at times, but had a tendency to miss many chances that came his way. Both men played a strong net game, but Voshell's weak overhead play was due to his inability to get sufficient practice. The men set a fast pace with Tilden driving hard and invari? ably forcing Voshell back to contend with his deep court driving. The point score follows: FIRST SET 4 4 0 5 13 1 14 3 4 5 SECOND SET 14 4 4 0 1 4 2 0 2 4 4 THIRD SET 4 5 14 4 4?27 6 2 3 4 2 2 2?20 2 FOURTH SET Tilden..2 4 14 2 5 2 4 1?25 3 Voshell.4 0 4 14 7 4 2 4?34 6 FIFTH SET Tilden..2 4 5 5 4 2 4 4?30 6 Voshell.4 13 3 14 0 2?20 2 Voshell gained the service, but imme? diately lost it and had to* take, the de? fensive thereafter. The Philadelphia player showed a great recovery in the third set. Voshell gained a start, but Tilden placed the next three games to his credit. Voshell succeeded in adding the fifth game, but Tilden's irresistable playing netted him the next three games in succession. Voshelf rallied brilliantly during the tail end of the fourth set to make the match even at two each. Best in Fifth Set The aviator played at his best during the early stages of the fifth set, but then began to tire. Tilden put more driving power behind his strokes and added points quickly us he broke through his opponent's service. Voshell made several defaults himself, which aided his rival to gain his winning margin quickly. A hard duel was also seen in the finals of the doubles, with Ingo Hart man and Elliot Binzen downing Harry Steinkampf and Henry Bassford, in a four set match, by a score of 6?3, 6?2, 3?6, 7?3. The Steinkampf-Bass ford failed to gain their top form until their rivals had placed the first two sets to their credit. Thereafter it was a hard fight for every ace, with Stein kampf playing the strongest game and being resDonsible for forcing the fourth set to deuce. Ten Cents Boys' Price to Watch !

City 4 21.160 ArthurSpencer Wins First Leg On Title Race Arthur Spencer, the Toronto boy, and present American bicycle champion, won the quarter-mile titular race, the first of a series of races which will decide the national championship for 1918, yesterday afternoon at the Velo? drome, in Newark. Spencer beat Bob Spears, Frank Kramer and Reggie Mc Namara, these three riders finishing in that order. The championship races are run in eight trial heats, four semi-finals, two grand semi-finals, and then the win? ner.? of the grand serai-finals battle it out for first and second places, while the losers fight it out for third and fourth places. With two men on the track at all times, it eliminates any possible chance of teaming. Arthur Spencer beat Verri in the semi-final and McNamara in the grand semi-final, while he then outsprinted Spears, who had beat Kramer in his grand semi? final heat, winning by inches; Spears won by a length from Kramer, who has not reached the top of his speed this season, but is getting better every day. While Spears lost the championship event, he rode a sensational race in the two mile all-star invitation, winning from Eddie Madden, Reggie McNamara, Alfred Grenda and Frank Kramer. Spears came from about fifth position ?n the backstretch of the last lap and won out. Jackie Clark, one of the most popular rdiers who ever competed in Newark, won the two-thirds mile handicap.

Adm. 60c.?Advt f?N ALL FAIRNESS] I * * By F w- J MACBETH Li_*__j N'ELSON N. LAMPERT, president of the Chicago Athletic As? sociation, who evolved the idea of compulsory athletic train? ing for all Americans between the ages of fourteen and twenty-one, has just published a short synopsis of his plan, which, un? fortunately, is too lengthy to be produced in full in these columns. Mr. Lampert proposes nothing more difficult and elaborate than compulsory development of the physical powera of youth and young manhood as the intellectual is trained and developed by the common schools. His scheme, of course, does not propose to coordinate with school work. Rather it would supplement it, for he proposes to take the youth at the time it is customarily through with compulsory men? tal training (school) and begin a systematic development of the.physi? cal. The Lampert plan could dovetail into any scheme for universal compubory military training this country may be called upon to adopt as a result of the present world war. Indeed, the two could go hand in hand. Hours devoted to healthful sports and recreations might easily count as points in the curriculum of military obligation. The quickness with which our soldiers who had enjoyed aHiletic training before going into the army were advanced has proven the value of athletics systematically administered in the raising of an army. The Germans evidently figured this country could not quickly train its men. Autocracy was fooled. And no agency contributed more toward this very end than systematic athletic training. Nelson N. Lampert has established a doctrine that should encoun? ter little opposition if we but remember the miracles already accom? plished in our armed military and naval forces within the brief span of a year and a half. That doctrine already has met the unqualified indorsement of all the important athletic clubs and associations throughout the country. It is a work, speaking for itself, which is bound to expand to every conceivable length, for it seems to answer a crying danger scented by the Administration immediately this young country stripped for?action. Athletics to-day is the boon of the classes. Mr. Lampert would make it the privilege and delight of the masses as well. Suburban Proves Season's Surprise EVERY red-blooded sportsman loves a good horse. So, whatever the personal disappointment at the immediate time, none will now grudge Johren, the imported three-year-old colt of Harry Payne Whitney, that distinction which his impressive victory in Saturday's running of the classic Suburban Handicap merited. Johren proved pounds the best of a field of real merit?rather more limited than usual though it were?in a race which ;vas decided strictly on class. The element of luck figured nowhere at any time. The best horse won. It makes no difference that the time was slow. Johren had to overcome exactly the same track conditions as his com? petitors. He overcame them in a manner that left him, of all the field, with plenty in reserve at the end.. Johren's victory was clean-cut. His preparation for that victory was open and above board when, by winning impressively in a mile event two days previously, he added five pounds to his impost which might as easily have been avoided. It was disappointing indeed to see such public idols as Cudgel and Spur trail not only Johren, but Hollister and Battle as well at the finish. Yet in no case were the weights assigned unreasonable. It would seem that Johren is a much more formidable stake horse than was suspected. He will not want for support in the future. The great popularity Of the running turf was attested in the colorful crowd of twenty thousand that attended Saturday's racing. It remains for the officials to see that this confidence is not betrayed. Pessimists attach themselves to every game, and should be discounted in the main. There have been rumors in circulation that can do the sport no good. Those supposedly in close touch with a certain stable declared that a certain favorite in a steeplechase had been sent to the post on three legs. Whether or not this was so, the fact remains that the favorite in question hit repeatedly in fencing, and finally un? seated the jockey. If the popularity of racing is to continue the interests of the pub? lic, above all things, must be safeguarded. Paddock and patrol judges are in a position to keep tabs on the physical condition of entries. If necessary, they have the expert opinion of veterinarians at their beck and call. If such officials fail in their duties they should be replaced by experts capable of fulfilling the offices fearlessly. Local Baseball Situation Interesting A MONTH ago it appeared McGraw's championship Giants would make such a runaway in the National League that the race would be broken up before July 4. At the same time the most rabid enthusiast would concede the Yankees nothing better than an outside chance?and a mighty slim one at that?to top the list in the Ameri? can League next October. Sensational changes have been wrought within the month. The National League race has been saved by the collapse of the Giants. The Yankees displaced the Boston Red Sox for command of the John? son circuit. This must not be interpreted as meaning that the Yan? kees are at last about to realize a pennant dream or that the Giants are through. Huggins has a team of exceptional hitting power, one that air? tight pitching would carry far. His pitching staff is capable to a de? gree, but so scant in numbers of worth that one injury might easily prove fatal. And another striking weakness is lack of speed. Gil hooley alone of all the Huggins clan is capable of taking full ad? vantage of the many base knocks. Because of this painful lack of speed the New York Americans are bound to get a minimum of runs out of the maximum of hits; which places all the greater premium on pitching consistency. The Giants are capable of much better baseball than they have displayed of late. They have lost heavily of veteran material. Benton and Barnes have gone to the army, while Schfcpp has not been avail? able so far. Those three pitchers would furnish any club a pretty capable twirling corps. Add to this the loss of Doyle and his under? study, Niehoff, not to mention the prospective departure of Benny Kauff, and one easily recognizes why the Giant cause has fallen from an apparently moral cinch to a case of grave uncertainty. The rise of the Yankees in conjunction with the slump of the Giants is bound to prove a great tonic for major league baseball in general. A balance is struck in both directions that should keep local interest at concert pitch all the way. There seems a chance that the world's series may be confined to this city next October. But to attain that happy object both the forces of McGraw and Huggins will be obliged to fight every inch of the way. Of the two Huggins's task appears the more difficult, as no less than five rivals press him sorely. The American League race is a six-cornered fight. On the other hand, only the Cubs and Reds threaten the peace of mind of the Giants. Of the two Cincinnati is very likely to prove the real Tartar before dog days arrive. j Strollers Win Soccer Cup Tie From New York The I. R. T.
