American League baseball has already
been handed a black eye and -is going
to suffer a, heap more next, season and
in year to come if .a stop ,1 not put
to the practice of selling stipng player's

when the race begins to tighten up.
Jn the National League we see.a grand.
old free-for-all scrap, with hair a, dozen
clubs still elegible for the pennant. The
pennant fight In the American, League
is not a sporting venture any more, it's
a case of commercialism.

sale of Joe Jacksoa to the Chicago White
Sox. Wednesday Sam Agnew, the
Brown" best catcher, was purchased by
the Boston Red Sox and last night came
a well-defined rumor that Charley Coni
Iskey. owner of the Chicago club, was
going to make a desperate attempt 'to
buy Frank Baker, the home-run slugger
at present .owned by Connie Mack.
In Chicago there is some excuse for
rendering aid to the White Sox, be
cause of the Federal League club In that
city, but-Chlcago has been helped about
enough.
The one team whh really needs star
players if the present spirit of commer
cialism is to be' continued Is "the New
York Yankees, for a pennant contender
In New York would make money for
every club owner In the American
League, and yet We do not hear of the
Yanks getting a chance to bid for such
players as Jackson, Jack Barry, Frank
Baker. Bill James, and others who have
been transferred for a consideration from
second division American League clubs
to pennant contenders.
The Griffmen bid adelu to Chlcaao last
night until 191S. winning the series just
closed two games out of three.
Today the Nationals are in St Louis
for a three-game series against the
Browns.
Thus far the Nationals have traveled
at a .730 clip through the West, but gained
little ground on the leaders.
With a long stretch of homo games' to
wind up the season, there Is yet a chance
of the Nationals passing the Chicago
White Sox and finishing third, providing
the Old Fox does not attempt to do too
much experimenting with recruit players.

Discussing the American League race

on the Philadelphia Telegraph, says:
"Baseball magnates should adopt a rule

certain date in the championship sea

In the American League is taking the
sportsmanship out of the race. 'When
Connie Mack was winning championships
for this city he did not have to buy the
honor, although he did once make a deal
in mldseason with Cleveland which
brought Brls Lord here.
"That deal, however, was a tame affair
compared with the money-madness of the
owners of the Boston. Chicago and De
troit clubs. There are times during a
race when a club finds it advisable to
get rid of a player, but never before has
a pennant fight been made such a com
mercial proposition as the present one In
the Johnson circuit.
"There is no rule to prevent a club
from buying a player at any time that it

should be such a rule."

Here is a strange case of a ball
player who "bucked" against playing
in the major leagues, preferring to
remain in the minors. The player Is
none other than Harry Wolter, for
many years with the New York Yan

Wolter has been playing great ball at

Among the special events of the day
will be an eight-oared race between the
Junior crews of the Arundle Boat Club
of Baltimore and the Potomac xnis
event should be very exciting and spec
tacular, as there Is much rivalry between
these two crews, they having recently
rowed a close race against each other
when the Potomacs visited the.Arundels
at Baltimore at the time of the Arundel
regatta and were defeated by the Bal
tlmoreans by a close margin.
At that time the Potomacs were forced
to row in a strange boat and with
strange oars, placing them at a great
disadvantage, but on Saturday, with their
own boat and oars they expect to make
the Arundels bow. Coach C. R. Zap
pone. of the Potomacs, has selected the
following men to represent the club in
this event: Bow, A. F. Garner: 2. Don

This race will be of much Importance
