ONE BAD INNING BY AYERS GIVES JUNGALEEI?S VICTORY Bcrnie Boland's Twisters Prove Puzzling to Nationals, Tigers Winning, 7 to o?Cobb Gets Lucky Break. STAR in all line? of athletics of the sporting world seems to always obtain the best of the breaks with the officials in charge of making decisions and baseball i? no exception to thi? standard rale. Ball players that hold the limelight always get the best of the umpiring when a close decision is rendered. This break was handed Ty Cobb, of the Jungaleers, in the fifth inning yesterday, when Umpire Nallin gaye him the benefit of a strike and those Tigers then went to work and grabbed off the final game of the series with the Nationals by a 7-to-o count. Nallin missed thi? one on Cobb when Ayer? had the "Georgia Peach** in a hole with two and two, and before the final out was tal lied in this chapter five runs had crossed the pan. The Hillsville nroundsman had been going at top speed up to this frame, as only one scratch hit had been obtained off his slants, but in this fifth he weakened a trifle and Jennings' hired men packed away the contest Borni* Boland, who waa do?jg th*?l heaviag dutie* for th* Jungaleers, ex hibited an assortment of twisters that dimply had th* Nationals guessing (rom tons t.. gong. Bende allowed but flv* hita and kept the?* ?o well scattered over the nine sessions that he was never la danger of beln: scored upon. Harper, in the right garden, saved Bern!? in the sevenin j frame, when he rushed back to the ? wall and made a sensational catch of Johnson's drive. Harper leaped into the air with his back to the stand while on the dead run and garnered In this wallop that was easi iv labeled extra bases.

Schulte doubled to left In the seventh, but waa left stranded when Johnson and F'iclnich failed to obtain a wallop. Foster gathered his twO-baee crack after two hands were out In '.he eighth and went to third when Jud?e singled to center, but Shanks left them anchored on the bags by lift ing to Veach. Stanage opened the way for the Tigers to register their five run* in i'ie fifth when he crashed the first ? lean blow off Ayers to left field, -"land forced the big catcher at the .dway cushion, but Ayers passed Hush and the sacks were tilled when lone* hit to right. Boland respecting the throwing wing of Frank Schulte. Cobb then worked Ayers for a pass, hut It was at this stage that Umpire Nallin was given a tiding by the fans for missing a grooved ball that would hive set Cobb down by the strike-nut toute. Bobby Veach then crashed a ?ouble to right that scored Bush and ones and placed Cobb at third. Jim my Shaw took up the task of halting the?? Jungaleers. Shaw forced Heil man to whiff, but Harper hit to ren ter and Cobb and Veach crossed ovet the dish. Harper being cut down at . tecond base on a quick relay of John n"s throw-in. The final two counters of the Tigers | came In the eighth when Hellman rippled to left center and Coffy was passed. With three and two on Stan age, Coffy stole second. Heilman beat ing the return of the ball to PIcinich. Boland whacked out a single to cen- ; ter field and Coffy crossed the dish.

Baseball, track athletics, boxing, wrestling and all ot the other fa miliar sports are already playing thelr part among the American sol ate? In Frano*. Active participa tion la the*? various forms of com petition are making Gen. Perahlng'tr flghters happier, more alen. s.tronger and ao better fitted for war. These athletic activities are now being carried on in Uncl* Barn's army under th* direction of hun dreds of T. M. C. A. directors at- j tached to the various units In France. But these sports are also fitting them for peace, and when It comes It la hoped that they may do some thing to maintain peace. The modern Olympic games were planned to promote physical effi ciency and international amity. They continued every four year? from 111? until the outbreak of war. The Berlin games in 1911 were not held for reasons all to obvious. The games held accomplished much, but not enough. The war was partly due to eome nation? failing to understand the rules un derlying fairness In sport and In social relationships. The observ ance of rule? of fair play such ?s are Inculcated by well regulated sport would have aided In avoiding war. Now that American regiments are ? ligaded with the allied forces, a >onderful opportunity is afforded fee the development of a common ? lay life. As the men Join In games hey come to know, to understand, nd the more fully to respect each either. That does more than help win the war by Improving physique and morale. It gives a basis for mutual understanding and inter national friendship that will be a powerful agency to maintain peace liy holding the allied nations to gether. When enough trained men and sufficient equipment can be secur ed and transported there will be an athletic director and ample athletic equipment with each Amer ican regiment. A start In the same direction has been made by the American Y. M C A. workers at tached to the French forces. Sim ilar work is being carried on with the British, Canadian and Austra lian armies by their own T. M. C. A'l But It will be upon the day that fighting stops that the athletic pro gram now being matured wilt be gin to flower. Peace negotiations may occupy weeks and even months, and in the meantime the troop? must wait, with little to occupy their minds or bodies. And once pesce 1* ' arranged it will be many month? before the American, Canad ian ?nd Australian troops, at least, can be transported to their home?.

RIVaALS PULL FOR KAUFT TO BINGLE New York, July 14?When Benny Kauft waa at the plate for tbe last time before joining the array the fans at Ebbet?

Miller, who was catching, slgnaleld Grime? to give Benny ? high fast ball, the kind the Giant can slam. Grime* put It where Miller wanted It Benny swung at it but Instead of landing out or a fielder's reach it dropped into Ivan Olson's glove. Te Play Rex Club. The Army Medical School team will meet the crack Rex Athletic Club nine at th* Union League Park. Fifteenth and H street, next Sunday at i p. m. Billy Miske, the Human Stumbling Block, ? Makes Things Tough for Other Heavy-weights -\ 45?? ****+**yy l?KE id A SOR, THE.-- AM5?T10US IIEIAVIES. ISKE TOUGH ONE IN GAME Billy Is Human Stumbl.ng Block for Other Heavy weight Battlers. He isn't what you would call a great boxer. He isn't particularly clever. His punching ability Isn't up to the standards of several other modern heavyweights. He Isn't a giant tn ?tature?but Billy Mlske has been the greatest stumbling block of a decade to ambitious heavyweights who have hoped to stand out as the most logical contender to Jess Willard's title. A few days ago Jack Dempsey, the most promising of the modern crop of hehemoth bruisers ?tubbed his toe against the Jtleke jinx. He wasn't beaten, a great many critics gave him a shade, but his victorious career, which had put to shame the exploits of others in his class was brought to an abrupt halt for the time being. A few months ago Fred Fulton, try ing to make a record for himself in order to induce Willard to get into the same rlnc. with him, ran into the Mlske web. Result?kindly critics were good enough to call it a draw and let Ful- ? ton down easy. Really Mlske Isn't ss ?rood as either Dempsey or Fulton. I'nder most con ditions either should be able to defeat him with comparative ease. But In ? these two fights Mlske, without win ning either, earn? sway with what honors there were to distribute. Mlske is about 24. He ls 6 feet tall and weighs about 175. It is easy to see that he cannot hope to be a match for the fighting 196-pound demon, Dempsey, or for the gigantic Fulton. But he's made a lot of trouble for both of them. BIG GAME USTED IN NAVY YARD LEAGUE The two league-leading clubs of the Navy Yard League are booked to ?lash this afternoon at the Union l#ague Park at Fifteenth and ? streets northeaat, when the Torpe does and Cloffeps meet.

Sterger or Bryant are carded to do the hill work for the Torpedoes, with Kajawa doing the receiving, while Phil Bischer and Fltftrerald will make up the Cloffepa' battery. SHIPYAt-TAGE?T ALMOST GETS PUNCH - ^ New York. July 14.?Agents of the vsriou? Industrial league?, who have lured many players away from the major leagues with promises of easy lobs, big pay snd exemption from the draft, sounded out ths members of the Cincinnati club while that outfit was tn the Bast a few weeks ago on the proposition of "Jumping," but met with a cool reception. One of these obnoxious Individuals ao Incensed Russell Blackburn? that "Lena" took a punch at him. The only regrettable feature of thl? In cident was that the punch missed Its mark snd the tempter retreated In haste before the Reds' shortstop could launch another swing. It's about time the Department of Justice agents, interested in those who are obstructing the application of the draft law, gave some of their attention to these worthies.
