United States differs from Mexico
in one respect here we stage our
bull fights every four years.
For downright consistency you've
got to hand it to Northwestern uni

it plays football.
In making keynote speeches to
hurlers managers might use a
"pitch" pipe.
Lee Magee says the Yankee play
ers feel it in their bones that they're
going to win the pennant. Has the
pennant fever gone to their heads?
Beer was beaten by Stein in a
pitching duel on the coast the other
day. The same afternoon Bud
weiser finished in the ruck.
Dan Dailey and Carl Morris are
matcher to box at Tulsa, Okla. Here's
betting the spectators don't stay the

Kid Herman, southern bantam
champ, licked Frankie Brown in 15

Ed Walsh is slated to start the
game against Walter Johnson to
day. This should mean a good
No matter how they are doing it,
the White Sox are improving their
winning percentage and are now but
half a game from a 50-50 basis of
games won and lost. Excellent pitch
ing in the last three games has been
a big factor in this uprising, the
Washington club having gleaned a
single run in 27 innings.
Some of the batters are macing

have not yet brightened their eyes
the numerous hits are not producing
as many runs as would naturally.be
expected. Joe Jackson is leading the
onslaught, having assembled seven
hits out of 12 attempts in the Wash
ington aeries. Felsch is seconding
him ably and John Collins is in the
midst of another of his batting ram
pages. Weaver, Ed Collins and Terry
are not pestling many hits, neither is
Schalk, but they are attempting to
make up for it by a sterling defense.
There is no reason in the world
why such a fine aggregation of ball
players as the White Sox should be
staggering around in the second
division. They should be up, and
have the ability to rise.
Joe Benz pitched Washington to a
three-hit licking yesterday, but there
was no difference in the mechanical
stuff Joe put on view from what he
showed the Yankees last week, and
he was chased from the box before
an inning was finished. Joe had as
much stuff against the New York
ers as against Washington.
The difference was in his fielding.
Against the Yanks he was upset be
