Griff men Open Home Stand Tomorrow: Many Good Southpaws in Johnson Circuit TRIBE FIRST OF WESTERN TEAMS TO APPEAR HERE Harrismen Make Road Record 7 Wins in 17 Start# by Taking Final From White Sox, 4 to 2. McNeely’s Sore Arm Peeves Qriff. PITTSBURGH. August down, but not oat, by their second invasion erf the West this year, the Bucks were on their way home this afternoon for a 16-day stay in which they will be hosts to the clubs that have been giving them a terrible tussle since the letter part of last month. Indians, Tygers, White Sox and Browns, in order, will visit Clark Griffith Stadium in Washington for the last time in this spirited American League campaign. In all, 15 games are scheduled with the Western club* on the home field of the Bucks, three each with clubs led by Tris Speaker and Johnnie Evers, four with the Sislerites and five with the legion generated by the Peerless Tyrus. The stand against the West will open tomorrow afternoon, when th« terrible Tribe will face the Harrismen. When the Bucks take the field against the Tribe Washington fans will get their first glimpse of Earl McNeely, outfielder just purchased from Sacramento of the Pacific Coast league for the equivalent of *50,000 — base hall money. Earl has a, throw ing arm not in the best of condition at present. But Goose Goslin hurt his leg in the second game at Chicago Saturday; so Earl will go to center field, while Nemo Leibold will patrol the left garden. Griff May Cancel Trade. Incidentally, this sore arm of Me- Neely’s has nettled President Griffith of the Bucks to some extent. This expensive purchase was expected to report to the club in goojj, playing condition, but the Washington prexy ■ figures McNeely’s arm was not right when he left the coast and undoubt edly will take the necessary steps to protect the club in the event that the newcomer does not soon round into form. Should McNeely’s trouble prove serious. President Griffith' may take the case to Kenesaw Mountain Lan dis, commissioner of base baJI. Washington fans will not see Wid Matthews, peppery outfielder, who helped put the club in the flag rate just after he was purchased from Mil waukee in June. He leaves Chicago tomorrow for Sacramento, whence he goes as part payment for McNeely. Matthews is sent to California un der option. It is understood that the Washington club will pay the Cost League aggregation $5,000 at the end of the season and reclaim Wid. so very likely he will he with the Griff* at the Tampa training camp next spring. This homecoming is not such a glo rious one for the Bucks as was that In June. Then Bucdty Harris and his athletes returned from a setto with the Yankees in New York to Wash ington in first place to receive the plaudits of thousands 'of enthusiastic fans. This time the Bucks are return ing in third Mill in the running for the flag. Hard Hit In Two Series. Disastrous series in Cleveland and St. Louis account for the logs of ground sustained by the clan of Grif fith in the Western sortie ended yes terday. The Indians and the Browns, who had been giving the Bucks all sorts of trouble since the start of the campaign. Continued their wild ways and jointly held Harris and his co horts to a lone victory in nine en gagements. The Bucks helped to keep them selves in the flag race, though, by a brave stand against the Tygers in Detroit and were helped by the Browns’ fine fight against the Yan kees. Generally the contention was so. even in the West, except in the case of the Bucks, that none of the other first division team* was able to gain overmuch. The series opening tomorrow in Washington promises to be a severe one for the Bucks, according to past performances. The Tribe ha* grabbed 10 of 16 games from the Harrismen so far this season and in only one of four series between the clubs haa the Cleveland aggregation finished on the short end. The Tygers are due in Washington Saturday for a five-day stay, accord ing to tentative arrangements. They are regularly scheduled for games here August 16. 17 and 18 but the two days following are off days for both clubs in the original scheduling and it is planned to us.fi them for the play-off of postponed games. The White Sox are due in Wash ington August 21 and the Browns August 25. Following the series with the Sis lerites the Bucks will visit Yankee land for the last time this year, and if they at least maintain their pres ent relative standing with the league leaders during the short home stay that series with Babe Ruth and hi* gang ought to be a lively one. Win 7 In 17 on Road. The Bucks made their record 7 wins in 17 starts for the trip when they took the final of the White Sox series yesterday, 4 to 2. George Mogridge held the Eversmen to six hits and two passe* and was invinci ble outside of the first and last frames. Mike Cvengros’ southpaw shoots were tapped by the Bucks for seven safe* ties, totaling fifteen bases, and two runs during his eight innings of toil. Rip Connally pitched the ninth for the White Sox and in addition to giving “POOR OLD” COBB STEALS : FOUR BASES ON RED SOX INSPIRED by their veteran manager. Tyros Raymond Cobb, who favored his diamond-weary legs to the extent of stealing only four bases, the Detroit Tygers burgUred first place right out of the hands of the Yankees, whom they lead today by one point. Washington and St. Louis, both of whom also profited by the world champions’ downfall and advanced to within two and four games, respectively, of the erstwhile pacemakers. Old-timers wept for joy as they watched Cobb do the stuff that made him base ball’s premier speed demon of all time in the Detroit-Boston slaughter. The Tygers wielded the butcher knife for a 13-to-7 triumph. Ty celebrated his second childhood with pilfers of second, third twice and home. His cohorts’terriffie slugging did the rest. By their 7-to-l victory the Indiana not only tumbled the Yankees out of first place, but passed Chicago into fifth place, as the White Sox lost to Washington- Shaute stopped Ruth and his pals dead in their tracka Although they did their best to surrender the game on errors, the St. Louis Browns gratefully accepted a 10-to-8 victory at the urgent in sistence of the Athletica The Phila delphia pitchers outdid the St. Loafs fielders in the matter of wildness. The Cincinnati Reds achieved the distinction of administering the first double defeat the Giants have sus tained this season. The scores were 4 to 2 and 6 to 1. As a result of the twin setback the league leaders now are seven games and a half ahead of Pittsburgh. Not to be outdone, Brooklyn turned hack St. Louis twice and'maintained its game and. * halt advantagefig -• V* . , -C ' /v "V SPORTS* BY JOHN B. KELLER. TRIP ENDS RIGHT ■WASHTNGTOir. AS. S. H. PO.

Goose Gottlin was out of a game in Chicago yesterday for the first time this season. He is tha last of the Bucks who started tlfte campaign to be put out of action. Goose hurt his leg Saturday during the second game with the White Sox, when he tried to slide Into second. He may be back within a day or two. Five double plays were made In the first four and a half inning* of yes terday’s engagement, three of them by the White Sox. Hooper made a circus catch of Rice's low looper in the fourth to start one of the two-ply killings. He fell, but held the ball. Whan the sphere left Klee's bat It appeared such a certain hit that Harris did not hesitate to leave first base and was at third when Hooper arose.

W2C [the EXPERT. —By Ripley PRINTERS’ TEAM ON ROAD TO RECORD SANDLOT FEAT UNION PRINTERS established themselves as one of the most tal ented sandlot nine* in the District yesterday by snaring their third consecutive title' this season. Not content with the Departmental and the Union Printers’ International Base Ball League honors, the Typos administered a 6-to-3 heating to the Hilltops in the deciding tilt of sec tion B in the Potomac loop. The Washington Printers now aim to point the way to the sectional winners in the Potomac series. This accomplished, they would set an unparalleled record for local sandlot teams. The Type* got away to a good start yesterday, scoring a quartet of mark ers in the first frame. From then on they were newer headed, although the Hilltops threatened In the sixth, when they accounted for three tallies. Pound and Hutchinson hurled con sistently for the victors, while the offerings of Rlackie Kllyood were slammed for IS wallops. Lemric, Simons, Ford and Warren served the punch at the stick for the Typos. St. Joseph diamond athletes are practically assured of the award in Section A of the Potomac League as a result of their *0 to S victory over the Rialtos. It appears that a pro test, accumulating from another Section A match may interfere with the St. Joseph's standing. Twenty-five blows proved too much for the Rlaltos yesterday. Naples end Whitehill of the 8u Josephs each registered four hits. Three teams still aro in th# run ning in Section C of the Potomsc series. The Ransdall and Tenleytown tossers fought to a 13 to 13 deadlock yesterday and they are tied for the lead with the Eastern Athletic As sociation. Augustine fanned 16 of tho Tenleytown batters, but he was hit hard. Deck of the Ransdells knocked a homer, triple and three singles in five times at the stick. Arlington Athletic Clmfc, that downed the Shamrocks in a 3-to-l engagement, took the lead In the In dependent circuit yesterday. Effec tive hurling by Laycock, who was touched for only five blows, was a big factor in the Virginians' victory. Petworth Athletic Club copped its second straight game In the Inde pendent series, downing the Knicker bockers, 8 to 4. The Knicks Present ed two sluggers in Smith and O Neil, who each garnered a trio of safeties. Chase cf Petworth was nicked for 12 blows.

They were better In the second hair than In the firm, but were unable to oversome the lead obtained by the Irishmen.

FOSTER. N F t V Y i P?, K ’ , A “ grust 11 ~ The American League. observes Manager I-ee Fob! of Boston, is getting to “a regular left-banded league.” He announces that he is in the market for a good left-hander, add ing that he guesses he will “have to get in line with the others.” Lee’s observations are true. too. for the left-handers in the circuit are leading their right-hand brethren a merry race for the leadership Holloway of Detroit and Thurston of Chicago, both right-handers are off . thc . * tt4ck on their derated position’ but VVhitehill of Detroit, W ingard of St. Louis, Shaute of Oevdand, Pennock on SfeTrK. ° f St 4 bayin * oASgSS Shaute should be called the south paw of tho Iron arm. Whenever Cleveland wants to win a ball game they can on Shaute. And whenever Cleveland want* to save a game that somebody else has thrown away they call on Shaute. When he began the year Shaute was not very fortunate, and there were doubters who figured that Speaker was wrong in thinking Shaute was a better pitcher than first baseman. It’s tho other way now. None of them says much about Shaute except to pun his name and remark that he ''shoots" the whole works for Cleve land. If Edwards, the other Cleve land southpaw, had come through this year as Shaute haa Cleveland would have been flopping around in the prize basket with Detroit, New York and Washington. Shaute ha* a fairly good chance of winning more games this year than any left-hand pitcher in base ball. Offhand it looks to be a toss-up be tween him and Pennock of the Yanks. Smith of the Clevelands is doing well this year, and Speaker has had enough work out of him to pgy him for taking the veteran southpaw from Brooklyn. He does not seem likely to win as many games as the agile Shaute. But he probably will finish to the right side of .600. and any pitcher who works plentifully and finishes with .600 has earned his pay. The National League is not one third so left-handed as the American. One year the National was pretty much southpaw, but, take it year in and year out, it has been more of a right-handed than a left-handed league. Yde of Pittsburgh is the feature southpaw of the National, and his RALEIGH HABERDASHER SPECIALS Big Reductions in High-Grade NECKWEAR Our entire stock of neckwear placed on sale at sensational mark-downs.
