' Miller Hugging, manager of the Yanf'
kees, who gave New York and the rest
{ of the circuit lots of vigorous and arf
tistlc baseball even If they didn't win
the pennant, returned to the city yesterday
from Philadelphia. The season Is
over for Hug unless there's a city series
with the Giants. Most of the players
are on a short barnstormlpg tour. If
| the Giants are to be played they will
toe back Monday; If not they will play
k a few days longer and then disband.
' If that series wero played Ruth would
be In it. He has other arrangements
for post-season work, but when made
, It was provided that they should not
Interfere with his taking part in a
, world's or city series. Ruth, by the
way, is filling some date of his own
the rest of the week and Is due to play
round hero Sunday.
* Charles 73. Stonehum, chief owner of
the Giants, got back to town yesterday
J ' from Cuba. Asked about the proposed
j city series between the Giants and Yankess,
he said he didn't think It would
be advisable. Which point of view
1 doesn't make tho outlook for the series
i any more cheerful than yesterday's
weather, and If McGraw Is of tho same <
mind, why that's an end to It.
a v. Lterrill Pratt, whose playing was of
* Immense value to the Yankees this year, x
Is through as a big leaguer. The crack
second baseman and .300 hitter, the
Cleanup man in the batting order and 1
i best man on the club next to Ruth at <
driving In runs, hn? signed to coach t
j athletics at the University of Michigan i

his contract. The Yanks will have a
hard time filling his place. He never
played better ball than this year.
"But a guy can't be crooked part of i
the time and square part of the time"?
Happy Felscli. He can't bo square if he
Is crooked, but he can turn square after j
being crooked and stay square. (

Chicago ure a great blessing for the

revelations are the best thing tha' could
have happened. Nevertheless It hurts
and hurts badly to think that none of

direct the sport?had the enterprise and
tho courage to find out these things and
cloAn them out.
"Baseball's greatest need Is a com'

Just how many men are necessary to
constitute a nucleus Is not a matter of
fixed quantity, but .Syracuse, with the
return of Brown to play end, has at
least an excellent nucleus of a nucleus.

Chicago, Sept. 30.?With little more
than a fighting chance to win the American

Sox, crippled through the loss of seven
stars as a result of the baseball scandal

The players were determined to fight

who have Just lost four straight to the

more in a row. For the Sox to win the
pennant they must win three In a rowwhile

To-night the two leading teams are

still win the penant. lose two and tie
Chicago for the championship and must
lose three for Chicago to finish ahead.
In case of a tie. a three games series

1916 SERIES RECEIPTS
WILL BE EXCEEDED
Demand for Seats in Brook
lyn More Than Supply.
As the demand for world's series
tickets in Brooklyn already exceeds th?.
supply it is fairly certain that the receipts
for any individual game at
Kbhet's Field this year will top tho
best figures for the 1916 series with the
lied Sox by a comfortable .margin, even
though the seating capncity will bo no
greater than it was four years ago.
It will be remembered that when the
I>odgers returned to Khbots Field in
October, I.?16, after two crushing defeats
at the hands of the Bed Sox at Boston,
Brooklyn fans had lost so much interest
in the proceedings there weio
many vacant seats in tho stands. N'o
such situa'.lon Is possible this year for
several reasons, one of which is tho fact
that the club will have to turn down
thousands of applications for reserved
seats.
As nearly as can be figured out by the
Brooklyn club the attendance at the
opening game of the coming world's j
series will be close to 26,000. and the re- ]
celpts not far short of $* 0,000 This Is
how the estimate Is arrived at:
'.'."(It box scats at $cl $12.0',4
".liii seats behind the boxes at $3... 21.37"

3,000 (approximately) open pavilion
scats at $1.. ., 3,000
3,000 standing room In stands at $1. 3,0(Ki
2",,d88 total attendance
Total receipts $70.4J?
The best attendance ut Ebbets Field
In the 1016 series was 21,662, and the best
single day receipts $72,840. It is interesting
to note as indicative of the
growth of the event that the first day's
receipts at* Brooklyn, as estimated, will
exceed by more than $11,000 the total
receipts of the. five games series between
the Giants and the Athletics In
1905.
The record for a single day's receipts
is the one r.et a year ago in the sixth
game of the Reds-TVhlte Sox series,
when the total of $101,768 was reached.
OLYMPIC HEROES TO PARADE.
After Procession Will lie Given a
Dinner In W'nldorf-Astorln.
The American Olympic athletes, who
arrived in thla city a few days ago from
Antwerp, where they won tho championship,
will be seen In a parade to-morrow
afternoon. The Mayor's committee on
reception to distinguished guests, which
planned the parade, will give a dinner
to the athletes In the night at 7 o'clock
In the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
The procession will start from Fiftyninth

where Mayor Hylan will review the athletes
and present every member of the

The members, both men and women,
will parade In their Olympic uniforms,
the same worn in the "Parade of the

The Mayor's committee Is anxious to

Columbia Must Settle
Big Score With Trinity
\ FOOTB.VI,I, crmi" between Columbla
and Trinity, which
will foaturo the Inaugural of
the 1920 season on Mornlngslde
Heights to-morrow, is something of
a rarity In gridiron history. As far
na the records show, Trinity has
played Columbia only once. That
was In 1 991, when Columbia i.ad the
worst eleven in Its history. Trinity
won by 34 to n That should make
the Blue nnd White of 1920 strain
for revenge.
The 1191 Columbia eleven started
with a victory over the Berkely Athletic
Club by 32 to 0. Then came
defeat after defeat, with nsry a
score. Tho .Manhattan A. C. defeated
Columbia by 28 to 0, the Cresrent
A. C. won by 4 2 to 0, Stevens
won by 32 to 0, Trinity by f>4 to 0
and Bulgers by 44 to d. Happily,
the season closed after that.

If Benny Leonard can stop Jack BritI
ton in their bout at Clevelanil to-night '
the lightweight title holder will gain the I
i world's welter championship. and It
would mark tho first time In the history i
of th? ring: that one boxer has held two !
world's titles at the same time.
1 ho bout between Leonard and Brltton |
was to have taken place last night, but (
was postponed till to-night owing to the
storm. There Is good reason for tho bej
lief that I.#eonard will make an effort to
i tako itrltton's title In the bout to-night.
. and the veteran welter will need all his
resourcefulness If ho is to avoid the blow
soporific.
Brltton Is so able a ring general and i
j so clever a boxer that, despite his age. j
even so hard and accurate a puncher at; I
Leonard will have difficulty In reaching :
the point of tho old chap's Jaw. There j
I will be llttl? difference In the weight of
the contestants, Hrittcn being required
to make 145 ringside. Therefore, If
, J^onard wins by a knockout he will be
I |the welter champion. Thost who believe
[the lightweight champion will put BritI
ton down for the count of ten are offering
1 to 3.
,! I'rank Moran sailed yesterday on the
i Mauretania for England, where he is to
! meet Joe Beckett in a twenty round bout
in a few weeks. This meeting hould furi
ish an illuminating answer sis to j
whether Beckett possesses real class as
a heavyweight
IVhen Mo ran was In England a few
months ago he made short work of a
number of English heavies who had previously
made it interesting for Beckett,
' -ml it stands to reason if the Pittsburg
i j re .top manages to land "Mary Ann" on
Beckett's jaw the Briton will drop as
quickly as he did the night Oarpentier
1 1 It him. Because of the slowness of
Beckett, Moran, who Is hy no means a
, marvel of speed should have a fair
chance to get homo with his right.
Charles B. Cochran, the British pro- (
motor, who has <Sarpentier tied to a
contract :hat does not expire till llrcomb.
r 31. has notified Jack Curtoy that
he will arrive in this city In time to vvitt
ncss the i?out between the French chain- ,
plon and Levinsky. There is a likelihood.
according to Curley, of Cochran
releasing Oarpentier from his contract,
which hinds the Frcn hman to box
Demp.-cy hi London, provided Cochran
secures the c onsent of the world's champion.
As Dcmpsey positively refuses to
box in London, Cochran's contract is
practically worthless. Until its expiration.
the French boxer cannot sign an
agreement to box Dcmpsey In America,
pnd It Is probable that the Briton will (
give Carp tier permission to sign for a
contest here.
Andy 1 u< y, lending contender for
tho title ' therwelglit champion, now
in the clir I a of Johnny Kilbnne, will
be one of t io principals In the hlc'f
event at tin Madison Square Sporting
Club. October S. His opponent will be
Johnny Murray, and, while this pair
should furnish nn Inter* -ting conntest,
it docs not promise to bo thrilling.
A reader desires to know "If Benny
Valger was born In' Fran c, and If he
ever was In the country of which he
claims the featherweight championship."
Valger claims he was born in France,
but he certainly has been In America
the greater part of his young life and
has done all his boxing here, starting as
an amateur. He never boxed in France
1 I 1.1.. .Inn (111.. ,.t 1V, >. ( ,.n,ml|.v
or any-other.
Tho title of "French featherweight
champion" was conferred on Valger by
his manager, who la ear.eful not to claim
that Vajger Is U?.- featherweight champion
of France.
George Ward of Elizabeth and Willie
Ryan of New Brunswick, two of the
best welterweights in New Jersey, will
meet in the National Sporting Club of
Elizabeth, N. J., to-right.
Sammy Selger, tho Kast Side featherweight,
will meet Johnny Hayes, also of
the Eart Side, for ten rounds at the
West Hoboken A. C. to-night.
By way of defending his title, Johnny
Kllbane has signed a contract for an
extended vaudeville tour.
The fact that Joe Mnlvlhtll, popularly
known as tho "Danbury Hatter," Is running
for Congrcess has aroused much
Interest In boxing circles. Joe Is a promoter
of ring contests end he says If Is
sent to Washington he will propose legislation
that will put the opponents of
the game where thoy belong.

Talking prices in print
is apt to mislead?let the
goods talk; for "seeing is
believing."
This much may be said,
however, about shoes and
| shoe prices.
The era of paper substitutes
for leather has not
passed, as we showed last
season ny our exnrnit ot
dissected shoes bought in
: prominent city shoe shops.
Only all-leather shoes
here!
We met the price condition
in June by dumping a
big stock of high cost
'shoes, as thousands of men
recall with comfort to their
feet and finances.
Now we offer an excellent
shoe for men, $12.50;
for boys, $7 50.
Very best shoes somewhat
