I'. Cleveland Nine in Grade E ! School Title Series. i I ^ BY H. C. BYBD. Park View School is grade school "base ball champion. It took the et>en insr contest of the three-game series ?with Grover Cleveland School by 3 to 2 in twelve innings, and yesterday "won the second by 10 to 0. The sec ond victory of the Park View nine marks the end of the 1918 schedule. Paul Deloe was the hero of the final battle, holding the Grover Cleveland nine to four hits and preventing any thing that looked like a run. He was given fine support by his teammates. In the two games it played the Park View School made only one error, j and that was committed in the twelve- ! Inning contest it won. ClofTops won from Ordnance in the Kavy Yard League yesterday by 1 to 0 in one of the best played games of thf year. Ruscher of the winning team and Humphreys of the losers engaged in a brilliant pitchers' bat tle. each man hurling superb ball. Buscher had just a little better of the argument, though, allowing only two hits and fanning fifteen. His work was about as good as has been seen in an amateur contest this season. Fenwick. third baseman of the Ordnance nine, got both hits made by that club. Crooks of the winning club was the leading batter of the game, connecting for two singles. Smith naught good ball for the win ning nine and Davis held down short stop well for the losers. Marines yesterday won from Supply and Accounts in the Navy Interbureau League in the first game in which the two teams have inet in the sec ond series. Supply and Accounts played *rood ball and went into the last period in the lead, but could not prevent the Soldiers getting three runs over and evening up the score. In the tenth inning the Marines got the one run necessary to give them the victory. The losing club made twelve hits against nine for the Marines, but the latter bunched theirs more effec tively. Pasquella and Clark led the Marine batters and Kane and Frahar did the best work for the losing nine. MISS LACEY LEADING. Has Card of 105. Best in Golf Play for Star Cup.

GRIFFS, INDIANS OR RED SOX FOR PENNANT, BARROWS VIEW Pilot of Boston Club, Which Opens Series Today, Does Not Fear Yanks?Na tionals on Heels of Leaders. BY DENKAN THOMPSON. In the opinion of Manager Ed Barrow of the Bolton Red 8ox, who are here today to open a aerie* with the Nationals, the race In. the American League lies between three clubs, his own, Cleveland and Washington. He does not regard the Yankees as a pennant probability. Having come to the capital only this morning from New York, where Hugglna' outfit defeated his team in three of four games and wrested the lead from It. it would be supposed that Barrow would entertala a healthy respect for the prowess of the Gothamltes, but such Is not thecase. 'T am not posing as a member of the 'I-told-yon-so* fraternity, but I must say that the present positions of the teams In the American League bears out the prediction I made to President Frazee before the season opened, that the flag chase would be a dose, hard struggle." Pilot Barrow said today. "It stood to reason that with all the second division clubs of last year strengthened nearly ED per cent, whlls the first division teams remained practically stationary, that a tight struggle would ensue." "However, I am not afraid of the New Tork club. I never yet have seen a team of sluggers win a pennant. Have you? I am much more inclined to fear a team possessed of good pitchers and tight fielding. In my opinion Cleveland or Washington is much more likely to win, but, need less to say. I expect my club to be at the top of the heap when the final gong rings. Our loss of the series with New York which ended yester day was due solely to the fact that we played poor base ball. It was not I the slugging of the Yanks that turned the trick. Yesterday we made seven teen hits against nine for the Yanks. | The fact that we were beaten is con | elusive evidence that it was not a question of hitting. This season we have played our poorest ball against the Yanks and Griffith's club, but this does not mean we will continue to do so. Performing at our true gait in the games to come, we will reverse the verdicts of the series that have | been played." Thee New Men Coming There are eighteen athletes in the squad Barrow brought to Washing ton today, and he expects three more to join him here?First Baseman Harry Blum, Third Baseman and Out fielder Jack Stansbury and Infielder Barbare. all of whom have been pur chased from the New Orleans club of the Southern Asociation, which closes its season today. These players were obtained to guard against the pos sible loss of Shortstop Everett Scott, Third Baseman Fred Thomas and Catcher Walter Mayer, all of whom are in class 1 of the draft. Barrow says he hardly expects to lose Scott, however, as he is married and has a son five years old. Missing from the ranks of the Red Sox is Hub Leonard, the southpaw hurler, who is reported to have gone to his home for a few days before en listing in the Navy. Barrow asserted he did not know where Leonard was, nor what he intended to do. "I've scratched Leonard off my list," he said. Leonard s absence leaves the Red Sox with only one left-handed pltchftr ?Ruth. The latter Has been playing the outfield and will continue to do so unless Amos Struak's Injured leg mends sufficiently to enable him to get back In the line-up. Barrow expects Strunk to be able to play today. The Hub helmsman said he expected to close a deal for an outfielder to day. He declined to mention from what team he expected to get him. but admitted the player In question Is a major leaguer. Griffs Poshing Leaders The series with the Red Sox which opens today la another one of those "crucial" affairs. As a result of the trouncing handed the Gox by the Tanks yesterday the latter now are on top In the flag chase by a narrow margin and the Nationals, winning two games in one afternoon for the first time in many moons, are bat three games behind the Sox ar:4 Yanks for first place and only two games in the rear of the Indians, who occupy the third position. It is pos sible for the Nationals during the so journ here of the Boston team to take the lead In the race. Harper Is due to bear the fling burden for the Qrlffs In the first con test of the set. Harry has shown splendid form In the last few weeks and is new on an unfinished string of five straight victories. If the Jerseyite does not lose his lately ac quired control he can be counted upon to give the Hose a great battle. Op posed to him the Nationals probably will find Lore Bader, who was dis charged from the Army for physical disability, or Molyneaux, both right handers.

The first of the two games was merely a gallop for Johnson, who brought his record for shutouts this season up to six by blanking the Napless Athletics while the Griffs pounded the deliveries of Messrs. Adams and Holmes for eight runs. The feature of this same was the "Hal Chase" play of Joe Judge in the 1 seventh, when, ^-ith second and first i occupied, he sprinted over to the third- j base line, grabbed Acost?.'s bunt, and with a snap throw to Foster forced | Walker at third.

Shanks Going Strong The closing encounter was a tough battle and, due to an error by Foster that paved the way for an enemy run In the sixth, ten innings were required i before the Nationals could obtain a i 3-to-2 verdict. Shaw, who had hurled J six Innings in the rain the day before, j was sent right back, and, while stingy j in allowing hits, kept Manager Griffith ' and the spectators constantly on the j anxious seat because of his unsteadi ness. He gave way in the seventh to Avers, who finished strong and got j credit for the win. Burns' single and j steal and Perkins* safety gave the Macks their first run and the second was forced over by Shaw, who issued three passes in the round in which Faster made his bobble. Shanks, who is proving a bear as a lead-off man, had a great deal to do with the win ning of the game. It was his single and steal, with Milan's safety, that registered Washington's initial run, and his sacrifice fly that scored Lavan with the second local tally, after the shortstop had walked and moved around to third on Picinich's hit and Shotton's walk. Lavan produced the bingle that won in the tenth. With one down, Milan beat out an infield hit and took second on Schulte's sin gle.
