Crippled Tribe in Debut Here Tomorrow: Reds Now Set Pace in National League INDIANS MAKE POOR START, DUE TO LOSS OF REGULARS Speaker's Oub Should (limb in Race When Its Full Strength Is Available, However—Final ■ With Tygers Is on Today. BV DENMAN THOMPSON. WITH the arrival tomorrow of the Cleveland Indians following termination today of the scries with the Detroit Tygers, restricted to two games by bad weather, Washington fans will have the chance to inspect a club that has proved even more of a disap pointment to its followers than the Philadelphia Athletics, now securely anchored in the basement as a result of dropping their last eleven games in a row. The sagging of the Speakcrites. whose poor showing has over shadowed even the complete (lop of the A’s simply because so much more was expected of them, has submerged to seventh place a club generally rated in the pre-season dope as best qualified to give the champion Yankees a race to the wire. A margin of only five points separates (iriffs and Indians, but so closely bunched are the half-dozen teams between the leaders and tail rnders that it is possible for a clean sweep to land either of the con tenders in the series starting at Clark Griffith Stadium tomorrow in second place. Wretched pitching and anemic bat ting is responsible for the lowly po sition of the Mackmen. who have floundered because the athletes de pended upon have failed to deliver, hut it is ifferent in the case of the Indians, who have a legitimate ex cuse for their failure to date, in that the team has been hard hit by the loss of regulars, due to illness. An indication of how the team has been handicapped may be gleaned from the fact that Speaker himself, the mainspring of the club on both attack and defense and its chief source of inspiration, is just recov ering from an attack of influenza; Riggs Stephenson, the walloping second saeker. has been unable to play, due to water on the Knee, re sulting from a collision with Karl Sheely of the White Sox. Chick Few stcr. his understudy, performing with a finger that ordinarily would keep him confined to the bench; Third Baseman Lulzke is suffering from a heavy cold, and George Uhie, the ace of the pitching staff, is inactive with a sore arm. Neither Speaker nor L’hlo was with the team when it started on its in vasion of the east last week, al though they arc expected to be among those present when the Tribe gels here tomorrow, Uhie has pitch ed but one complete game this sea son, winning that and getting credit for winning another when he was forced to quit the hill late in the game, whereas last season at this time the former sandiotter was bag ging victories with great regularity. In addition. Stan Coveleskle. veteran spit ball manipulator, has been un able to win a single contest, three defeats being charged against him. Tribe Has Array of Slogger*. For ail their failure to maintain a place high in the race, the Indians have been hitting well, and will do even better when their fulil strength is available, as it is expected to be shortly. With ail their regulars on th© job they have half a dozen real sluggers in the line-up. the records for 1923 divulging this; Speaker, .380; Joe Sewell. .332; Jamieson. .345; Sum ma. .328: Burns, .328. and Stephenson. .319. With Uhl© in the box, the Tribe has another clonter available, as the pitcher attained a .361 average last year, and Catcher Glenn Myatt this season has been listed up with the first five hitters. In addition to Coveleskic. Uhie and Morton, veterans, the Indians have an effective portsider in old Sherry Smith, who has won half of his four games to date, and a pair of very promising youngsters in Jim Edwards and Joe Shaute. while began Drake, another newcomer, has displayed a world of stuff. Right now the In dians. despite their seventh-place standing, are but five games back of the league-leading Yanks, and with their potential strength should yet make things interesting for the Hug men and Tygers when they begin hit ting on all cylinders. In any event, starting on practically even terms with the Nationals, one or the other of the two teams should have its percentage materially improved as a result of the series which gets under •way here tomorrow. Final With Tygers Today. Having nosed out the Tygers in the first mixup of the season with them last Saturday, the worst Harris* men can get is an even break should they lose to them in the final today, and they are by no means resigned to this fate. It was Pilot Bucky’s inten tion to send George Mogridge to the mound this afternoon, while T. Ray mond Cobb was expected to choose between Bert Coio and Earl White hill, which would give th© contest a thoroughly left-handed aspect. White bill is a youngster who xvas pur chased from the Birmingham club of the Southern Association and ho has proved one of the pitching sensations of the circuit to date. Carr Smith, the Raleigh boy who has been recalled from Chattanooga, where he has been punishing South ern League hurlers, is not expected to arrive until tomorrow, but is slated for use against southpaw pitchers when he does show up, the plan being to alternate him with Nemo Leibold in right field. The arrival of Smith will not in crease the roster of the Nationals, as Fred Wingfield, the curve-ball ex pert obtained from Chattanooga, has been shifted back to that club. Wing field displayed a fine assortment of hooks, hut didn't have enough on his fast bail to make the grade in fast company. The chances arc Wing field will not again be seen here, as he goes with no strings attached. If is considered doubtful that Goose Goslin, whose work has been severely handicapped by logginess due to in fected tonsils, will submit to an oper ation before the end of the season, the club physician having advised against It, following a thorough ex amination yesterday.

Base Ball AS BIG LEAGUERS PLAY IT CATCHERS - £_• should nap BUNTS ONLY AtZ I * \ VVMCrt IN OWN n TER k ,TORy BUT THEY SHOULD AT ALL TIMES // ly CALL THE A/jtf R/G+fT MAM T /// TO FIELD Bunt. When should a catcher field a bunt and hove? Answered £y “CY” PERKINS Catcher. Philadelphia Athletic*. Her alded by many a* the best catcher in either league. ** * * A catcher should field a bunt only when it is in his own territory. A catcher should, at all times, call the right man to field the bunt, be cause the play is directly in front of him. He should also call the base the play should be made to. For instance, if a man is on first, and a bunt is made and fielded by the first baseman, the catcher could call the play for second base and complete a force-out. The first base man would have his back to the play and would not know when to throw if the catcher did not tell him. (Copyright, 1924, Associated Editors, Inc.) SAD HITTING AND HURLING CAUSES OF MACK’S PLIGHT BY JOHN B. FOSTER. NEW YORK, May 13.—Catcher Perkins of the Philadelphia Athletics is one of the best catchers in base ball—the very best, they were saying over in the City of Brotherly Love when the season started —but today he is perhaps the worst panned man in base ball. The reason? During the month of April, when the Athletics and their supporters were just crazy for a little batting to help them on to a few victories, Perkins turned in a batting average of .083. Twenty-four times at bat and two hits. That was his portion. A pitcher who could not do better would feel sad. But a catcher—oh, my! Since May Perkins ha.* been batting .4 44. But the fans have not noticed that he is picking up. They re member only that long string of games when he did not do a thing while the Athletics rolled and shipped water in a heavy sea, and they have clamored for his hide as earnestly as they lauded him when tha season started. ' But Perkins is only a rallying point for the Athletic fans. Connie Mack’s club is riddled all the way through with light hitting. Hauser hasn’t started. Miller is sliding around (lie barrier instead of break ing away from it. Strand hasn’t come within a mile of his first score of hits. Hale is fifty points behind his normal figure, and no one much is stepping into the ball except Sim mons. Where the Trouble files. It does not take an expert to te.ll what is tho matter with tho lowly Athletics. It is poor batting plus poor pitching. But suppose th© players begin to pick up as Perkins picked up in the last two weeks. Then the Athletics RIVERSIDE NINE IN RACE FOR CITY SENIOR CROWN THOSE teams affiliated with the senior division of the Washington Base Ball and Athletic Association series are expected to produce a flock of real battles before the title is garnered. Riverside \thletic Clnb, which has mustered a formidable bunch of athletes, hopes to cut a wide swath in section A of the senior division. Its 9-to-S victory over Epiphany Athletic Association startled the sandiot fans and set them buzzing over the performance of Clarence Smoot, former south paw of the Arlington Athletic Club, who struck out ten of the Epiphany batters. Johnny Gollan, stellar basket ball player of Peck Athletic Club; Bob Cliaconas. formerly of Business High School, and Fax Taylor, a clover third saeker, are among the leading Riverside players. Riverside has an open date Sunday and it would like to meet some strong unlimited nine. Challenges are being received by Manager Bob Donohue at West 831 between 5:39 and 6:30 o’clock. Mem bers of the club are to hold a meeting Thursday night at the home of Carl Saul, 1056 Jefferson street. Manager Chris Hutchinson of Kast ern Athletic Association unlimited is casting about for games to be played Wednesdays and Saturdays. He may be telephoned at Lincoln 6902. Games aro wanted this week particularly. llotwlyn Athletic Clnb will strive to mow down Lehigh Athletic Club tomorrow in a game beginning at 5 o’clock on the former’s diamond.

Songs by Kate Smith will be a feature of the entertainment. Warwick Senior* are to gather to night at 8 o’clock at the home of Ralph Bennie.

With the knick ers a golf suit; with the trou sers a business suit. Thirty five dollars. The Hecht Co, 7th at F. might get into tho flgbt a* they were expected to do at tho start of the season. Exaggerated importance may have been placed on the part Rommel would play In the campaign as pitch er. Naylor may not be able to do as well as the spurt he showed In 1923. Other pitchers may be going to flop after promising to amount to some thing. If that is tho case the Ath letics are hard hit where they least expected it. The pitching staff had been reckoned on to overcome breaks coming from occasional poor work elsewhere. A team that cannot bat better than .240 and that has been compelled to work pitchers who canot get Into the games-won column because they are swatted out of the .box, or are too wild, is bound to have a hard go. The present collapse of the Athletics is, if anything, more sensational than that of Cleveland, for tho latter is beginning to smack its way into the strife with its bats. If the Athletics can take a leaf out of Perkins book, though, and gain .361 batting points in ten days, they may get into the fight.
