Macks Down Griffs, Sandlotters in Draw?Beckett Wins Fight by Kayo
WITT'S BIG BAT !
TRIMS GRIFFS
Whitey's Hitting Gives
Macks Victory Over Na
tionals by 4 to 2.
Philadelphia, Sept. 2.?"Twas Whftey
W|tt who subdued Washington to
day. and he used for that purpose
a knock of much dynamic force. Tech- .
nicfclly It was a raging triple that
kited far over Gharrity's dome and
induced two of Whitey's pals to score
a minute later. He trooped in him- j
*elf on an out. That's why the Ath
letics captured the pastiming with j
the boys from the Capital by a score
ttf 4 to l
Walter Kinney, the * inning pitch- .
rr. was an odd compound of wlldness
and effectiveness. He slipped six |
passes to Griffith's men, to sav noth
ing of hitting another Innocent toesev
In cold blood, yet he could always
pull himself together and right things.
He used the short cut of the strike
out route to dash out of danger, and
when it is recorded that he blotted
>ut no fewer than eleven Washington
players on strikes it is made clear
.low well he could reform.
Erickson rolled along in prosperity
until he ran into Witt's expressive
oat. Of the ten Mack hits, nine were
sff Ertckson. Jezebel Tecumseh Zach
ary was on the tee in the eighth, and j
Thomas tapped him for a triple.

CAST0FFS HAVE
PROVEN THEIR WORTH
j New "iork. Sept. 2.-U was Dick
Rudolph who was mainly responsible
j for the Braves' roughshod treatment
of the Giants in 1914.
Milton Stock had quite a little finger
in the 1915 pie the Phillies cut.
In 1916 Rube Marquard had some
I thing of importance to do with the
I winning of a pennant by the Dodger^.
' In 1917 Eddie Cicotte ruffled the Red
Sox by hefting the White Sox Into a
world's championship.
What's It all about?
Nothing much, except that Dick Ru
dolph was tossreu oft by the Giants, j
and so were Stock and Marquard. CI- j
cotte was spurned by the Red Sox in I
the past ages. And Bill Rartden. {
Heinie Grob. Eddie Rousch and Slim ,

BECKETT KAYOS M'GOORTY;
TOWNLEY UPSET BY FULTON
"London, Sept. 2.?Joe Beckett. E?ng- I
lish heavy-weight champion, defeated ,
Eddie (McGoorty, the American light!
heavy-welgh4t by a knockout in their j
20-round flight tonight at the National
Sporting Club. The knockout came
in the seventeenth round.
The Fulton-Townley mill went only
one round, the American delivering:
the knockout blow before the gong.
It was Beckeft'a fight from start
to finish, his smaller opponent having j
little real opportunity to inflict any
punishment. It was McGoorty's game
ness that kept him going as long as
he did.
Fred Fulton, the American heavy
weight, in the seml-windup bout to
the Beckett-McGoorty fight, knocked
out Arthur Townley, a British heavy
weight.
Right up to the fifteenth rouna
McGoorty withstood several at
tempts by Beckett to force a de
cision. In the third round the ref
eree found both men guilty of hold
ing nd warned the'i. I? the
twelfth round McGoorty was warn
ed again fdr wrestling with his
heavier opponent.
Up to the tenth both were going
strong and .displaying great skill.'
McGoorty took the count in the
twelfth, but scored well in the
fourteenth and fifteenth.
When the seventeenth started
both showed signs of tiring after
the gruelling contest. Beckett, with
a sudden spring, landed both left
and right on McGoorty's chin, send
ing the American to the floor for
the count and whfn he got to his
feet again another blow to the chin
knocked him through the ropes,
where he lay on the outer edg?; of
the ring and was counted out.
The Briton was completely outclass
ed by the lanky American plasterer.
[ who waded into his opponent and
| put him down for the count with a
few heavy punches. Fulton walked
i from his corner, coolly feinted Town
ley into a knot, then began to cuff
his opponent at will. Townley tried
to hold on, but Fred shook him off. I
then drove home a smashing left i
hook. Townley reeled against the j
ropes and went down, completely out. i
: The crowd applauded Fulton wildly
I as he left the ring.

COMMISSION MEETS,
BUT FAILS TO TELL
OF ACTION TAKEN
Chicago, Sept. 2.?Just what the
three members of the National
Commission talked about at their
meeting today was a matter of con- I
siderable conjecture in baseball
circles at the conclusion of the con
ference. But guesses on this or
that subject failed to reveal a hint
of what was on the magnates'
minds. K
"Announcement will be made at
the proper time." said Garry Herr
mann, chairman. "It would be out
of order now to plan for a world
series before the race is over." I
Garry Herrmann, chairman; John
Heydler, president of the National
League, and Ban B. Johnson, head
of the American?the three com
posing the National Commission?
met, presumably to make prelimi
nary arrangements for the world's
series.
STYLES CHANGE IN
HALF A CENTURY
The llrst fifty years of football arc
the hardest, all'right. Juit lamp the ;
illustrations. A half century calen
dars back the brawny lads waived j
the H. C. L* by refusing to patronize
the barbers. They didn't use head
gears, no there Mas more leather to
make the baby's shoes.
The rules committee and the under
takers linally had a falling-out, and
the game was changed. There are
lefeg funerals.
But the reformers were not so
-h<artl??ss as they were in the recent
prohibition debacle?they left a little
ki? k in the gam'1. This is the fiftieth
annversary of football. The young
ster came n licking, and is still at iL
