Trimming White Sox
GRIFFS SLAUGHTER CICOTTE
IN FINAL GAME OF SERIES
Nationals Pound Offerings
of White Sox Hurler to
Tune of 12 to 2, While
Hovlik Shows Form.
Eddie Cicotte, world series
pitching hero of 1917. the Kill
pivot for the champion White Sox,
mi given ? drubbing in the final
game of the series with the Na
tionals yesterday at the Florida
Avenue Stadium by a count of 12
to 2. Sir Eddit will never forget
this farewell lambasting, as seven
teen solid base whacks were rung
up against his "shineball" offer
ings during the afternoon frolic.
It was the farewell appearance
of Pilot Clarence Rowland and
his world champions until after
Kaiser Bill has seen the Stars and
Stripes hoisted on the flag pole
of the Hohenzollern palace in
Berlin. All the glory and sweet
revenge is coming to the Griff
men for hammering Cicotte to all
ends of the bailiwick, but in beat
ing the camouflaged team that is
at present traveling under the
name of the champion White Sox
was never a tough job in this
series, as with good pitching they
would have only been considered
a hard job for either the Rex
A. C.. Navy Yard or Camp Meigs
teams of local sandiot baseball.
This misfit White Sox outfit looked
Just like a Blue Ridge League club
in this series of which the Nationals
captured every game, although they
were given a little better pitching
than that afforded in the mountains
'Of the "Trail of the Lonesome Pine."
The veteran Sir Eddie haa a great
deal to remember when he goes to
shipbuilding or some other essential
occupation of hla final in the National
Capital, aa the locals just picked
away at his offerings for five runs
and then went out fn th> eighth and
did the trick of slaughtering in the
right manner when seven runs %ere
registered on mne hita.
Eddie Hovlik. the youthful Western
Leaguer, was on the firing line for the
locals and in Justice to the Des
Moines hnrler it must be said that
he pitched the best he knew how the
entire distance, although he was al
ways out in front. By the fifth
frame Howy was cam pi og under a
five-run lead and when the Nationals
did the nightmare act In the eighth.
Eddie just loosened up on the reins
in the final inning and allowed two
.-una to dent the pan. In this chapter
he was given poor support by his
teammates aa three hita. two dcuble
steals and a free issue gave the
visitors their allotment
Foster's first bingle. Judge's double,
and a sacrifice fy to Milan gave ihe
Nationals the lead in the opening
Innin? while hits by Jud?e and Milan
followed by Shanks' clean two-base
whack to center feld added two more
for the Griffmen in the fourth. Eddie
Hovlik opened .'he fifth for the locals
with a crash to right and went to
third when roster singled to left.
Both runners scorod on f4ilwn's single
to risfct as Toster had moved alor.g
on s throw-in to third to catch
Hov'ik.
Then the nightmare was staged
in the eighth. Judge started with a
hit to center and Milan followed by
Beating out a tap to Pinelll. Schulte
tripled to right sending the first runs
across and dented the pan himself
when Shanks hit to center. Howard
stole the midway sack standing up
and moved to third on Lavan's hit
to left. Plcinich crashed oqe past
Gandil that scored two more run
ners. but Hovlik made the first 011*
of the session by whiffing the wind.
Shotton got his first blow of the
game which was a double to right
that tallied Plcinich and romped
over himself a minute later when
Poster hit to loft. Eddie moved
along on the throw-in and came to
third on Judge's second hit of the
Inning. Milan forced Judge down
and Foster wag retired when a dou
ble steal was attempted between
himself and Milan.
Hits by Plnneli. uovereman and
8cha1k. pinch hitting for Cicotte.
along with two double steals and a,
baae on balls gave the visitors two ,
runs In the final inning when the
entire National team loafed along.
Murphy batted out of order in the
first frame, but Griff lifted the pro
tested ruling and allowed him to
waltz back In his regular position
in the second giving Buck Weaver
a little of the edge in the hitting;
role for the Sox.

LANDS MATCH
Two Local Players Are Set
Back in National Ten
nis Tourney.
Forast Hills. L. I.. Aug. 16.?The
; leading lights of the tennis world
cam* through the opening sound of
tba national singles championship
tournament hat* today with little dlffl
culty. Many of tha loading players
of former years were noticeably ab
sent, Including the present tltla hold
er. Lieut. R. Norrls Williams, Id. who
Is now In Franco ssnrlng in the artil
lery.
R. Undley Murray, tha sensational
California star and winder of last
year's patriotic tournament was an
easy victor over Jack Dudley, the
Junior star, of Washington. D. C. Mur
ray took three straight set*. 6-0. 6-0.
(-1. Frederick Alexander, the Inter
nationalist; Russell N. Dana, the
Rhode Island veteran; Ichiya Kuma
gae. the Japanese champion and hi*
partner. Sellchiro Kasio, representing
the West Bide Tennis Club; Ralph H.
Burdick, the Western champion:
Theodore R. Pell, the former Indoor
champion; William T. Tllden. 2nd, an-l
the veteran. Henry B. O'Boyte, were
among the winners.
Conrad B. Doyle, of Washington,
long recognized as one of the greatest
players on clay courts In this coun
try. won his first match In the thirty
seventh annual national singles thlr
afternoon, when he defeated Lieut.
| W. A. Horrell. his clubmate, by a
I score of 6?1. *?2. ??I. In the second
I round of the tourney.
Doyle, the master of a severe and
speedy chop stroke, had hla shots go
ing well this afternoon and took the
I match without trouble, the ball bound
j ing so low that Horrell had to fairly
I "dig" the sphere up from the court.
Doyle's placing was very accurate,
and he sent his returns down the
lines or Into the court corners with
such unerring aim that Horrell was
frequently caught out of position.
The Washlngtonlan will probably
face William T. Tllden. 2nd. na
tional clay court champion. In the
fourth round, and this should be a
match that will test Doyle's skill to
the limit, for Tllden Is moving at a
wonderful clip at present
Forty-three matchea were played to
I day. while the logical favorites came
through successfully In almost every
case. The opening day was not lack
ing in sensational features. For one
thing. Harold A. Throckmorton, now
in the Coast Artillery, defeated Harold
L. Taylor, the Brooklyn school boy in
I he longest match, reckoned In games
played, that was ever staged at a
national championship tournament
For three hours, under the rays of a
sun that beat down upon the sr-nd
stand court with merciless heat.
Throckmorton and Toung Taylor bat
tled desperately before the former
won by a score of *-8, 6-2, 11-9, 7-9,
11-11.
In the laat few games of the match
Throckmorton was so weary that h
found It exceedingly difficult to rai'
his racquet above his head for ?!
service, while Taylor was little betti
off.
Thers were two other matches I
which sets of 15-13 were played, an un
usual number of four and flve-se<
struggles, but In the main the mos
prominent players won their victories,
by more decisive scores.
Walter Camp, the famous football
coach, and Dr. Joseph E. Raycroft,
representing the War and Navy de
partments' Commission on Training
Camp Activities, sat in a box on Uie
club house veranda, or strollea
around the courts during the after
noon, watching the matches. They
were there as representatives of the
government, for all the gate receipts
of the great tourney are to be turned
over to the Training Camp Com
mission by (he United States Na
tional Lawn Tennis Association.
William T. Tllden. 2nd. one of the
strong favorites for the title, took
his match from Paul W. Gibbons,
of Philadelphia, by default. Gibbons
is said to have overslept and so
missed his train. He lives In Phil
adelphia.
Ichiya Kuimsae, of Japan, defeated
Walter L. Pate at 6-0. 6?1, 6-0;
but the Oriental wisard was not go
ing at his best and in the second
set Pate gave him a terrific battle
for the points. 8. Howard Vossell.
now a lieutenant tn the Aviation
Service, defeated Royal D. Rlchey at
6-0, 6-1, 6?3.

Chairman August Herrmann, of
the National Baseball CommUaion,
issued a statement here today
relative to the complaint made br
President Frarer, of the Boston
Americans, of the arrangements
for the coming world's series.
Chairman Herrmann said that
contrary to Mr. Frasee's idea, a
coin had been toaaed to decide
which league should hare the
honor of the first game and like
wise that an agreement had been
reached between the National
and American Leagues to the effect
that whatever league won the toaa,
the first three games would be
played in the city of that league,,
while the other four games, if it
Is necessary to play that many
will be played in the city of the
other league.
Chairman Herrmann'a statement
follows: "Had Mr. Fraxee waited
until he had received his official
bulletin with respect to the mat
ter. poasibly nothing would have
been said by him. The schedule,
aa arranged, was made by the
