TWO NEW PLAYERS GO WITH
CLUB TO PETERSBURG TODAY
Win nine of Series in * ockadc 1 Ity
\> In l*iit Team AN ell In I.end
for Pennant.
Led by their jirent old "Chief." the
Indians will leave this morniug for
Petersburg to play a three-day series
with the Goobers. piloted by another
old big leaguer. Andy MeConnell.
One thine will be uppermost in the
minds of the players?to work like ,
demons to win the series and increase .
the le.td of the club in the pennant
race for the second half of the season.
The tioobers. on their liomn grounds,
. re hard opponents. There is no love
lost hetween the two clubs, and it is
not i.ir wrong to say that the Cockade
City outfit would rather see any other
?.-it > in the league win the pennant
than Richmond. Ho it will be three
battles royal before the series is over.
owner lien Wilson ami "Chief"
H. nder want the Virginia l<euguc !???:>
nam just at this season of the year
worse than they want anything else.
And they have gone about it in the
right way. Two new players will re
port this morning?Lee tJooch and a
pitcher whom he will bring with him.
liooi'h will get in the game at Pe
tersburg this afternoon in the out
field If he does not come across with
some hits all concerned will bo dis
appointed. In forty-six games with
file Columbia team ol the South At
lantic League he hit for a total of .:{'.?7.
garnering in the total swuts seven
!<ome runs and eleven three-baggers. j
Disagreement with the manager caused :
him to cut loose from the club and !
he was sceured by owner Wilson, but '
could not report before because of a
previous contract which he had to till, j
\otliing Known of I'ltehcr.
Speculation is rife about the berth I
Gooch will Hll. whether it will he left!
field or right field. Haughton in center!
is a fixture, just as much as Jim l'oo'.e
and Chief himself, so it is up to either)
M ran or Hill to warm the bench and i
watch the newcomer show his wares.
< )i" t h e pi tc h e r w h o m G o oc h will
hrinsr with him nothing definite is ;
known. His name is still unknown. '
That Gooch thinks enough of his
ability to bring him speaks well for
him, however. The new arrival may j
get a chance in one of the Petersburg j
games, and if he shows stuff it is the !
end of Napier, in all probability, .is a
Richmond pitcher.
Napier has been given a fair trial,
but he has not shown enough ability
to win ball games to warrant his re
tention if ,t steadier performer can he
secured. Four good pitchers are
? reded to rinish out the season and
take pari in the post-season series, in !
which the Indians seem certain to i
participate.
Although stunned temporarily when ;
hit on the head by Pitcher Pagan in
?he third inning of the first game of !
the double-header with Newport News
Saturday. Bender is now fully recov- I
ered. and will be able to do his trick |
the hox this week. He will undoubt- j
*d)y work in one game of the Peter.1- :
bur? series and in the weekend series
with Suffolk here on Thursday. Krl- ;
day and Saturday.
"Chief" Him Worked Hard.
"Chief" has worked so hard and often
in the last two weeks that he needs a
?"est The only hop~ of obtaining one is
for the new pitcher to go well and re
lieve him somewhat. Richmond fans
Are jus: awaking to y. realization of
how hard the Chief has exerted him
self to win ball gamps and put the club
"Ut in front in the Virginia League
race., .slid the high esteem in which
Lh< ' l.old him is incrr ising every day.
Sport followers, looking back in later
years over the baseball season of P'lfi,
will recall Bender pulled the club out
of the hole in great style and put
Richmond 011 the bae-eball in a p.
Bender says titers is nothing to the
report that lie will go :o Cincinnati
at the end of the Virginia league sea
son. It it true that a scout for the
Reds did come here in an effart to
rers jadf him to leave, but to hirn t!:?
< "tiiff turned a deaf car. He also de
ares tbat he has no idea of becoming
manager of the New Haveii club. He
was -*tioer.t concerning his plans for
the future Richmond fins will only
-?[)(? tha- he will return h*-re n'? xt sea
son.

FRENCH TENNIS~W0NDER
NEVER TOOK ANY LESSONS
Mile. I.rnglrn Only Twenty Years Old
npd His Just Won l'.nKllsli
M oninn'n Championship.
N'KW YORK. August 17.?Mile. Puz_
anno l.cnclen is still a name to the
American tennis world. The little
French g;rl. who recently won the wo
man's championship ?>f Kngland. has
never played in the United States; in
fact, her recent matches on the his
toric Wimbledon couits were tlie first
that she ha'! ever played in Kngland
The ease with which she won the
Knglish title, together with the reports
sent to this country by Peck Urifltn
and oter Americans who have seen her
play, has aroused the curiosity of the
racquet wielders here, and all are
hoping that she will visit the United
States next season.
The latest edition of the Tendon
Daily rhroriirle has the following lo
say about "the little wonder of
France":
"At Wimbledon yesterday crowds of
people, had come to watch the French
uirl's skill pitted against the enormous
Iriving power or Miss Ryan, whom
she defeated after two hard sets.
"Mile. r>egleii is one of the most
graceful players in the world. She (
wears a little white-stiched si!k hat.
a short white pique frock, with sleeves
which show her .-trong. slender arms
browned by the sun of the Riviera, i
After the in^st strenuous came she
looks cool, unrturried: there is a qual
ity of deliberate quiet about hc-r pame
which is most fascinating to watch.
"M always practice quietly. i don't
believe hi overdoing practice ?it spoils
on#'.- game.'
' This, then, must be the explanation
of her remarkable gra.-e. Mile. Len
glen gets her results by tactics: she
does not wear the fierce, determined
look of some players. it is. after all,
a p^:ne: she never forgets the faot,
and all the time she plays with im
mense zest and enjoyment.
" We aren't a tennis-playing fam
ily.' she went on. "There were two
traditions for me to follow; I've never
played at school, and never had a les
son in my life. 1 just, began to play
a- home in Paris when 1 was eleven
and a half, and I've loved it so much
that I've played ever since.'
As early as fifteen. Suzanne I.en
u'eii was strong enough to he part
nered with Wilding. winning the,
world championship at St. Cloud. That
wa.- in 1914."

TIKHOU SETS RECORD
LOSES ONLY TWO GAMES IN
COMMERCIAL LEAGUE RACE
Mronis Outfit Winn lilght to PInr In
Amateur ,^'rrje* liy Cupping
I.cogue Kin*.
The Commercial League. Richmond's :
class A organization rang down the
curtain upon a very successful season
? alurduy wlili Taka-Kola leading the,
chase and winning the gonfalon by Lit?
healthy margin of three games.
1 ho brand of ball displayed by this
league has been of the best and has,
ufforded wholesome recreation to many I
thousands of workhig people during i
Inc Reason, which Htretchod over <i
period of three months.
1 a ka - Kola, the flag winner, deserves
all the credit idue a champ, playing
a brand of ball right from the start '
that was of championship class and I
ma i n t a in in = a steady and consistent'
grind all through the season.
It is the consensus of opinion among!
local amateur boosters that the soft'
drink lads' outfit Is the best and most I
evenly ha I it need outfit gotten together!
in Klcinnond for a Ioiiv while.
Thc'.r seasons record, not onl> in the !
league but in outside games against
college, camp, and independent teams,
stands twenty-four won arid two lost.
1'hls Is a remarkable record for a:
ball club, particularly an amateur one.
to cop twenty-four wins in twenty
six starts and necessarily moans that!
-he team not only has a strong de- j
?fense but a powerful offense as well.]
Team Miorrrd Superiority.
?' In their games to date, Taka-Kola j
has scored 24V runs against their op
ponents fortyJeight showing their
wide, superiority over their opponents.
The personnel ^of the team contain!)
what is thought to be the pick of!
local amateur talent. They have be- '
hind the bat Cheesy l<iebs. who has j
had wide experience, both in amateur j
and professional ranks, and is known
for his ability to work i>itchers, as
well as having a thorough " knowledge j
oi the game, tiwathtney, who caught,
four years at the University of V,r- (
ginia captaining the team in iiis fourth
year, a good receiver and strong hit- j
ter also cares for the slants of t the
moundsmen behind the pan. while as
their assistant they have lioc. Scale.-,
old receiver for H h I. n.
The pitching staff composed of Sne!
ton. Davis and Carter make up a hurl
ing corps f good strength, Pre.-.1,
She'.ton being recoanized as one ot
the be.-t burlrrs that cv'-r teed thei
flab, while Davis the big follow from
Kapdolph-Macon, is ?iven credit for
having more smoke and stuff than any
tn an in town.
"China" Carter, the old reliable, enn
always be counted on to sro to the
hill and give a aood account of him
self, hi* iron constitution and will-'
ingness to work, tune and time pull
ing the club out of a hole.
Joe Wharton on First.
Around the tni'ial sack, Joe Whar
ton, a player who has always been
enderebtimated. has developed into one
of the bet: tir.-t-aackers in town,
iteing a steady, gritty and reliable
player who has won for himself a
host of follower*.
Plug Amos it, at the keystone ba:r.
He )<, an old head .it the came and
gifted with an uncanny knowledge of
the sport, a flashy licidcr and steady ;
hitter.
Around the thort field .lake Pott, the
best all-round shortstop Fcichmond has
ever produced, makes d'.fhcuH eiop*:
and pegs with grace and ease. His
knowledge of the game a i.d the p?-p
he instills were of great value to the
club. It can be truly said that Jake's
hittinsr if Hie only thing keep:riK him
out of th" bin tent today.
Mac I'llt. :?.t tliird. the team captain.'
deserves t lar^i slice of the credit for
the team'- phenomenal record, his play
at third l>eing of the sensational va
riety. while, his hitting haa been hard
and timely. I-ast year, with Ki.-lrnond.
lie was recognized *s the best guardian
of tits hot corner in he league, while
in t..e uolleglste world lie lias always
reigned hs a star in his position.
In the outer works, the left pasture
io guarded by Ulrk Kuyk. from the
University of Virginia, a steady hitter
and flashy fielder, a youth wifii a
Kfeat baseball future in front of htm.
t arter Covers Wide ftnrige.
"Rig" t'arter. in center, covers a (
world of ground and posses^e* a great
arm. He has time and again cut off
men at the piale front de-'p center with!
perfect pegs.
Bob Uurnham. the kid of the outfit,
wields "Old Betsy" with terrific force,
as well as being able to play the in
field or outfield with equal skill.
Charlie Moss wa^ unfortunate enough
to break his foot early in the season.;
and only for this break of fate would
have been seen in the outer garden
reg ula rly.
Kd l-owery. of Duplex fame, was a
tremendous help to the te:>m until he
was forced to leave town a few weeks
ago. Kd. a heady ball player at all
times, rounded out a well-balanced
outfit that possessed a reserve to take
care ot any emergency.
It can he seen that the position the
Kola boys occupy toiay has been
earned by merit. The only games of,
the season lost, two in number, were
tn clubs of thr Commercia 1 league?
one to Church Hill and one to Battle
Axe. However, Taka-Kola took two
games of the series of three from each
of these clubs, while they have de
feated Ne wton-Wood wa r?l. (iolde and
Knights of Columbus at every meeting.
