Seven Double-headers Provide Test for Nationals in Final Month of Campaign
Addition of Joe Carroll, Little Rock Recruit, Will
Give Manager Harris Seven Flingers for Duty
in. Season Now Nearing Close.
BOSTON. September 3.—This is to be the month of double-headers
for the Nationals. After going through four and a half months of
the campaign without being called upon to enter any extraordinary
number of dual sketches, the erstwhile Champions are to stage
•even of them in the last four weeks of the 1926 championship race.
Two of these two-way affairs are to be played with the Red Sox. A
Cold rain that drizzled in from the northeast yesterday prevented any hos
tilities at Fenway Park, so a pair of matches were to be put on there this
afternoon. Monday afternoon, the day that labor celebrates. Nationals and
Red Sox will clash twice in Clark Griffith Stadium in Washington.
When the Nationals roll \yest they will have a double-header with
the Indians, two of these dual bills with the Tygers and one with the
Browns. And the day before the campaign ends they are booked to meet
the Athletics in a couple of games.
All of this will mean plenty of work
for the short-handed hurling corps
now under Manager Stan Harris’
guidance. Perhaps it is Just as well
that Jimmy Uehrinsko, pitcher, who
has done little else than fling 'em up
to the batters in pre-game drills, has
been ordered to Little Rock of the
Southern, and that Jo a Carroll, pur
chased not st> long ago, may report to
the Champs before the Western swing
gets under way.
The addition of Carroll will give
Harris seven pitchers who may tie
pressed into competitive service. And
seven will he none too many, consid
ering the strenuous program arranged
for the Nationals through the remain
der of the season.
Crowder and Marberry Today.
For this afternoon’s games Harris
was exacted to use A1 Crowder and
Fred Marberry, with the latter likely
to be reserved until the second part
of the matinee. Perhaps it was just
as well that Crowder was not called
upon to perforin yesterday. He had
his left foot severely bruised by a
hatted ball during Wednesday’s club
swinging drill and the wounded mem
ber was exceptionally tender yester
But. according to the injured player
and Trainer Mike Martin, the foot
was practically O. K. this morning.
Martin declared the Birmingham
graduate would not be troubled by
the injury the pitcher received in the
Red Sox clubhouse information in
dicated that Harold Wiltsc, southpaw,
•nd Charley Ruffing, right-hander,
would do the flinging for the Fohl
men this afternoon. Wiltse is greatly
respected - by the Nationals and so Is
Ruffing, when In good trim. The or- ;
thodox liiirier has been suffering with
a sore right band recently, but it must
be fully healed if Fold has an idea of
starting him.
Boston fans are somewhat enthused
by the prospect of seeing Walter
Johnson In action against their club
tomorrow, for the smokeball veteran
has not performed here this season.
Instead of the 2.500 to 3,000 crowds j
that have been turning out for games i
here, there may be as many as 5,000 j
on hand for the Saturday clash.
Youth to Oppose Barney.
Danny MaeFayden, the Somerville
youngster who is to oppose the aged
marvel of t>ase ball, also is expected
to prove quite an attraction. He may
bring in a number of fans from the j
Suburbs of the Hub. Then, too. Fuller
of Massachusetts, and the mayor of
this city are likely to attend. If they
do. they ought to draw a few more of
the faithful to Fenway Park.
Weather conditions were so poor
yesterday that most of the athletes
•tuck close to their hotel, playing
caslno games for new Fall hats. It
was neither too cold nor too damp
for the National Lawn Tennis double
title aspirants, however, and some of
the players journeyed to the Long
wood courts to see the racketers strut
their stuff.
Among Ihese visitors to the turf
courts were Biicky Harris and Sec
retary lid Eynon. Bucky and the
secretary enjoyed the play while
there, hut. lacking fur-lined coats, did
not remain long.
Francis Ouimetr. former holder of j
both the national amateur and open |
coif championships has entered the j
Fall golf tourney of the Suburban
Club of Baltimore County.
Ouimet has assured the golf com
mittee of the club on Park Heights
• venue in Baltimore that nothing will
stand in the way of his competing in
the tourney.
The Suburban ('lull tourney has
been set for the same dates as the
snntial Fall golf affair of the Bannoek
< burn Golf Club, September 32 to 25.
> inclusive, and comes one week after
; the national amateur championship at
5 Balturol.
A strong field of golfers from
Washington would have entered the
Suburban Club tourney had it not
been for the conflict with the local j
The committee in charge of the
Interstate Commerce Commission golf
tourney played yesterday at the
Washington Golf and Country (,'lub
was still working today on compila
tions necessary to determine the win
ners in the event, an 18-hole handi
cap match play against par affair.
Eugene R. Hendley is chairman of
the committee.

Strenuous day. during the course of
which any one of four leaders might
have won the first priz“, Frank .1.
Marshall, the Fnited States chain
| pion. came through as a winner of

While Marshall defeated .1. W. Sho

THE St. Louis Cardinals today had a two-game margin over Cincin

While the Cardinals were taking two games from Chicago,
