GIANTS RIDE INTO REDLAND ON WAVE OF OPTIMISM FOR TWO DAY VISIT
OF NATIVES LAUDED: Tourists Place Lunch Basket | Habit Ahead of Chicago's Target Drills. WINDY CITY AIM TOO GOOD Meusel and Stengel Sport Stiff j Necks, Acquired Dodging Pop Bottles. By W. O. AlcGEEHAN. Cincinnati, Aug. 21.?Sitting very prettily at the top of the National League, the Giant expeditionary forces rode into this place to-day on a wave of optimism and intrenched for a two day series with the Reds. Irish ideusel and Casey Stengel are still suffering from cricks in their necks sustained while ducking the pop bottles of Chi cago. Otherwise the athletes are well and happy. Irish Meusel brought one of the bottles with him as a relic of the last battle by Lake Michigan. "At first I thought it was hospitality on the part of the inhabitants," he said. "But as you see the bottle is empty, so it could not have been mere hospitality." "No, slree," said Casey Stengel, who had been in the line of flre. "They wanted to crab our fielding. Tou see, if a bottle hits, the broken glass gets down a fellow's neck and tickles his spine so that he starts to laugh and misses fly balls. The cops in center field were a great help. They picked the bottles up and returned them to the throwers." The team was met by August Herr mann, the Burgomaster of Cincinnati, and a number of prominent burghers. The Burgomaster was in a cheerful mood, as the Reds had taken two games from the Brooklyn Dodgers on the pre vious day. To-day being an off day for baseball, the members of both teams and most of the inhabitants went on a picnic. When there are no ball games j here in the summer the Inhabitants go on a picnic, according to their quaint Garry's "Delicious" Reception. In preparation for the coming of the Giant expeditionary forces and the camp followers the good Burgomaster has teen preparing some of the native foods. The expedition is preparing to eat its way through a carload of pigs' knuckles, innumerable barrels of kraut, a mile and a half of Wienerwurst en tanglements and two kilometers ot pretzel barricades. The task Bet by the Burgomaster is not one for light or, casual eaters. The timorous ones of the expedition are already laying away a supply of pepsin and other first aid remedies for a Cincinnati feast. "You should eat, drink and be merry," warned the Burgomaster, "for to-mor rc.w you play baseball. Dot is what Shakespeare said it, and if he didn't It don't matter anyhow. Louie, pass the chentlemen some pickles and ask them If they would have a little more kraut. Kraut is a nice dish for break fast on account it loosens the digestion." Before nightfall the main engagement of the day will he fought out at the Latigbrey Club, about thlrty-flve miles fiom Fountain Square. The engage ment will be in the form of one of those barbaric affairs known as a barbecue. The athletes will not participate in this ; only the camp followers and the com mander in chief of the expedition, with his two aids, Cozey Dolan and Hug+iey Jennings. "Tt was too bad that Wlibert Robinson could not stay over for this," said the Burgomaster. "There is one of the finest caters in the United States. Chen tlemen. I give you my word that I have never sat down to a table with a better cater than Wlibert Robinson. Chust give him a fork and say the word, and oil you have to do is keep the plate filled. Col. Huston? Oh. yes! He learned his eating here, but he got out of practice in New York. Louie, pass the pickles; the chentlemen look weak." Every Game "Krooshnl." Of course, the series that Is about be played here Is still of a crucial n. ture. It consists only of two gam* but with the fragility of the Olant pltc ing staff every game lost from now < N a more or less ominous matter. T1 pitching staff will not get any strong as the season progresses. On the co trary, it may become frailer and fralW The best hope is a sudden return normalcy on the part of Jess Barn and of Rosey Ryan. It will be some relief here to the at letes to feel that the hospitality of tl inhabitants will not take the form hurtling bottles The customers he carry their lunches with them to tl ball park, but they do not hurl th? food or drink. They use it for the pu pose for which it was Intended. The pennant hope still flutters some extent in tjie Cincinnati breai It Is a brgnd breast nnd can hold co ?Iderable hope as well a3 nourlshmei When hope flees nourishment in a r plenished form remains. The news of the return of the Tan to the lead in the American League w welcomed by all members of the e pedition as Indicating that tho world series this year will be shown exel sivoiy at the Polo Grounds. The perils of the Journey West ha' Impressed the players with the bell that if one-half of the setles were be played at 8t. Louis some fa'alltl might result. The fan of St. Louis much more accurate with the petula pop bottle than the fans of other cltl awl the do'lc? are expert at giving tl range and directing the fire. McUravr Waxes Coaldent. McOraw confessed to-day that It looked like the Polo Oaounds again, though the pitching staff turns the hair of his head a little grayer each day. As It looks now the dope will be vindi cated. The dope last spring said that the Giants and Yankees would win There are times when the dope is hit right on the dhln, but these times do not come often In the long races for pennants. As the schedule has worked out. It has be< n a sweet dne for the Ol&nts. Ttiere Is a rest to-day for the enfeoblol pitching staff and another Thursday Just before the most crucial of the aruclal series with the Cardinals. Then cornea some more rest before the battle of the boroughs at Kbbets Field and the Polo Grounds. This situation was unforeseen when the schedule was drafted, but It Is mighty comforting now. In the series with the Pirates and the Cuba the Giants won two out of throe If they can keep up this ratio obviously the National T/eague pennant will one. again Hip against the sides of foogau's Bluff. Nothing but acute indigestion Indians Here To-day, Strike Yanks in Relentless Mood "Sew Yorks Have Won Five Out of Six and Bask at Top. By DANIEL. They wont picking: posies among the falling leaves yesterday?did our ram pant Yankees?picking posies in the cool meadows and thinking of the world series soon to be decided. With Ave victories in their last six games?two out of three from the Tigers and three straight from the White Sox?and the league leadership once more in their grasp the New Yorks face the future with pepper and confidence. If they don't win that pennant again they de serve to be taken out into the wood- j shed and spanked?and they admit it. But they fear no contingency which will call for the application of the I peddle. They're playing remarkable ball. To-day the American League cham pions will tackle the fallen Indians la the Inaugural of a series of three games. ,lhe Clevelands no longer throw terror] Into the local camp and they come here with their new pitching find apparently out of the way. Dan Boone, the sensa tion who was purchased from Chatta nooga recently, won his game In Wash ington on Sunday and it is not likely that he 4h*ill be used at the Polo Grounds. As Coveleskie pitched on Saturday it looks like Uhle. who hasn't worked slncf last Thursday, when the Athletics knocked him out of the box. For the Yankees the choice Is likely to be Samlvel Jones, the bejinxeo, with Joe Bush behind him. Bualt Ha* Saved Yanks. Bush certainly has saved the club this season. In the spring he was regarded as a fourth cholse among Miller Hug glns's pitchers, but here he Is with twenty victories and only four defeats, the only major league slinger with aJ winning streak of nine and still going' strong. We remember one afternoon down In Virginia when the Yankees were coming North from their training camp. The conversation turned to the pitchers and several enthusiastic war co.-Tespnndents got to talking bets. One ottered to lay a bit on the proposition that Jopes would he the leading pitcher of the j league this year. He had -/on twenty three and lost sixteen with the be draggled Red Sox in 1921. It seemed safe'to predict that with a team like [ the Yankees Sam would win at least thirty-two games. i A few of the other correspondents | offered to lay odd3 on Carl Mays. Ho had won twenty-seven and lost only nine Ir 1921. Hoyt was third choice?and Bush fourth. As for Bob Shawktv?hj was not expected to be with the club thtr season. He apparently was healed fo' a trade. Now we find Bob the Ov h second to Bush with fifteen victories and eight de feats, while Hoyt is third with thirteen end nine. Jones liss won oriy nine and lost eleven and Mays has won ten and lost thirteen. Such Is baseball! Harry Pulliam was right?take nothing for g'anted in tho old game. Ituth Twenty Behind Mark. Babe Ruth, with twenty-six home runs against thirty-two for Ken Wil liams, the leader, seems reasonably safe of retaining the circuit clouting honors: this year. The Babe Is twenty homers j behind his record at this stage of the 1921 season. On August 22, 1921, Ruth had 46 four baggers. It Is Interesting to note that he hit his forty-sixth off Red Faber, on August 18, and that one year later, almost to the day. ho slammed Faber for two homers, a trick which ho turned in last j Sunday. On August 23. 1921, Ruth hit; Caldwell of tho Indians for two home i runs, and to-day the Indians are here, j without Caldwell, but wtth several other ellgibles for fattening the Babe's i record. Douglas Making a Fight. Phil Douglas has engaged counsel and Is making a desperate atempt to Induce 1 contracted durlr* this stay seems likely to stop such a performance. Cozey Dolan and Hughey Jennings who ha/1 been slightly undernourished since leaving the Polo Grounds, and the | .solicitous care of Harry M. Stevens, are already considerably perked up. After to-njght's barbecue It is certain that both Cozey and Hughey will be thrtn selves again. Outside the dinner bells are ringing all over the city and the tumbrils rumble by with their freight of kraut, rtfs' knuckles and sausage. Tho housewl\ .jo, with their sleeves rolled up and their arms whitened with flour from rolling noodles, smile through the opfen door ways. . "What a lovely city!" muses Cooey Dolan. "Chentlrm?n It Is time for lunch," roars August Herrmann, the good Bur gomaster. And not to respond with alacrity to that summons Is considered | a grave social error In this vicinity. Your correspondent does not desire to be guilty of a soeinl breach that would ! offend the inhabitants. Dodsrers Win Exhibition Over Saginaw Team, 3 to 1 Special Piapatch to Tun N*w Yobk Houu. Saoinaw, Mich. Aug, 21.?The Brook lyn Dodgers boat the Saglmw team of the Mlchlgan-Ontarto league here to day by 3 to 1 In an exhibition game.

Judge Landis to give him another chance. Phil wants the Judge to believe that while he wrote that incriminating missive to Les Mann he never Intended to go through with It. The main point which the pitcher wants to Impress on the Baseball Commissioner is the al legation that he telephoned to the St. Louis outfielder and asked him to de stroy the letter and to forget the whole mess. In the meantime Mann declines to say whethere or not he got the letter, but he does deny that he had a telephone conversation with the barred pitcher. Tho case is a strange one. and one thing is certain. No matter what hap pens Douglas never will pitch another ball for the Olants. It is safe to say that he never will be seen again in the major leagues. In the old days there is no question that several cases somewhat analagous to the Douglas affair were hushed up, and the player, if released, was permit ted to go Into the other major league. We have one case in mind, that of a pitcher who was waived out of the Na tional League in his prime, after ho i had his best season. He was waived out | on evidence that ho had been mixed up with crooked gamblers, but he was per mltter to pitch in the American League. The appointment of Judge Landls cer tainly was a great thing for the game. Grimes Won a Point. Burleigh Grimes won one point in his recent debate with Charley Ebbets and Wilbert Robinson. He no longer is asked to work with Mooney Miller as a battery mate. Bernie Hurgling has been appointed the spitballer's catcher j and reports have It that they make a fine pair. Just what led to Grimes's revolt against Miller is not known. Mooney has been doing pretty good work this 1 season. However, Grimes of late had not gained uny too great respect for Miller's Ideas as to what balls certain batters could hit. Another ten days will find the major league clubs carrying squads of spring size. On August 31 the twenty-five player limit will go off and minor league stars and college luminaries will flock to their new bosses in the big leagues. The Yankees, who have been keeping quiet about their purchases, arc. to be re enforced by a least half a dozen men, notable by a slugging outfielder from the Southern League. ThetGlants Immediately will sign that bunch of collegians who accepted terma with the club in July. Among these are Waddle MarPhee, the Princeton second baseman ; Kred Maguire, the Holy Cross second sacker; Clinton Blume. the Col gate pitcher, and Tom Davies, the Pitts burgh inftelder. Maguire is ?ure to make good. Hamilton Pitches Pirates to Victory Over Braves Traynor Hits a Home Run in Eighth Inning. Pittsburuh.

And. after giving them that handicap, he is now treading on the heels of the leading home run hitters of the pastime If he goes through the rest of the season there Is small doubt that the crown belonging to the home run king will continue to rest upon his unbowed dome Every time we look at Ruth's record for last season we notice things about It thut we had forgotten and realise all over again wh,*t (dually accomplished.

A minor league outfielder decided that he was a comedian after the manner of Nick Altrock. Part of his comedy consisted In Inducing fans to throw pasteboard popcorn boxes at him. He'd stop them with his chtn and fake a knockout. One day he stopped one which some thoughtful bleaeherit? had wrapped around a brick. Since then he's never dared to t" ? fumn 00 he can.

From the estimates as to what it would cost to lay another roadway over the water from New York to Brooklyn you'd think they were going to hire a dentist to do the bridge work.
