Dorris Manufactures Marks Laveen Layout Still Winning Games BY LYLE ABBOTT Kurds Dorris ar hum swimmer. 1 This-, he admits himself, without the slightest attempts at quibbling. Mine than that: he ran produce the figures to show he's right. When the timing committee made its report on lust week's Swimming Com bat, exclusive publicity for which was given by The Republican, the man with the record book produced the following astonishing facts in support of the s-tatemcnt that it vni quite a hard fought natatorial exhiblsh. 220 Yard Swim Ui record 3:49 New record 3:23 440 Yard Swim Ola record 7:49 2-T, New reco rd 7:44 880 Yarad Swim Old record 17: S2 New record 16:00 Now. Mr. Dorris set all the old rec ords, in the course of various swim ming meets at the Y. M. C. A. And naturally, it's pretty nice to have him ciitne along and smash them, so we can have something cool and splashy to write about these warm days. 1 'orris is the kind of a swimmer who con giind along for a long distance, tin! tben wlit-n most racers would be losing their pep. put on the grandest little sprints you nearly ever saw. It is his confidence in his ability to spurt toward the end that makes him one of the most feared tank men in the com mumiy. Tliis astunishing youth also holds a li n; distance record at the Y. He has swum 2:".S lengths of the sixty foot pool without a stop. This was not for a time record, however. Dorris will captain a team of Y. M. C. A. swimmers for the natatorial games to be pulled off at Riverside next Sunday afternoon. With men like Westfall. I'umstiH'k, etc.. he stands a good chance of accomplishing some record victories. LAVEEN'S TEAM WINS AGAIN R'i.'( r I-i vecn's league leading vol leyhallists slipped one over on us Sat urday evening by acquiring another pair of games from the Judsons. The Iaveen trutipe nosd Judson out in the initial combat "1-1-:. and then coasted to victory in the second contest by a score of 21-12. Rogrr is expressing a lot of amuse ment over our christening his team the Misfits. p'.t it was one of his own apt phrases that stuck in our conscious ness, anil thus hevnme the rt-gular ap pelation of the leaders. Since pulling lip to the top. however, Iiveen cares not for the cognomen. Neither does any'.orjy admire the name of All-Stars for Whipple's cellar champs. But it is proper to remind everybody that the term All -Stars was also not of our in vention, but the donation of somebody who ricrhtly figured that players like B'air. FitzuerUd. Whipple. Wakelin etc. were deserving of that distinct title. Inability to win any matches has not change, the name, however. In fact, being all stars is one of the causes of the unanimous defeats suffered by the Whipples. Everybody on the team plays a brilliant individual game, and falls down woefully on team work. THE JUNKING OF THE ATHLETICS Naturally, Connie Mack's "suicidal" course in spattering his Athletics all over sev ral major leagues is receiving more comment as the season progresses and the Philadelphia, American team depresses. There have been a dozen explanations for Mack's stunt, but none are correct and founded on deep base bnlogical facts except Connie's own. Economy had nothing to do with it. As a matter of fact. Mack, while not actually broke, had become rather bad ly bent, along with other Philadelphia American stockholders. In the fat years of the Athletics' ball playing, the treasury grew correspondingly lean, and for a very good reason. Nobody cared to see the Mackmen play. The conclusion of practically every battle was too darn foregone. This condition of affairs having been reached, it was fated that there should be persons on the team who should get the idea they were playing thousand percent ball, and thus making them selves indispensable. And there you have it. Inside all the inside stuff was the insidious little in surrectionist idea working to wreck this great crew, just as exactly the same idea had wrecked such teams as the Baltimore Orioles and the Frank Chance Cubs. Mack will build up a new team. Right now, anjl.ody can look over the returns and see how industriously the old boy is working out young pitchers. If he's tried tine, he's tried ten this season. Same way with the rest of his team. You'll see Connie's world champ smile again, if the Kurd's willing and the creek doesn't rise. Kitty Gets On Reg-ler Roy (Kitty) Breasher. Tucson man ager and later umpire in the Rio Grande association, has done landed himself a job with the Coast league Brashtar's first try-out was given in a game nt Eos Angeles when Bill Guthrie strained a laig. and the for mer Tiicsonian was so eminently fair and impartial and "saw 'em" so straight that lie got lots of favorable comment, even from the players. Rrashear was a player of note in his day. His best licks were put in v hi!e jamming about first base for Los Anireles and Vernon several years j::go. Moreover. Brashear is a regu j Inr fellow, even if he has descended to umpiring for a living. Ronnie Brief, first sacker for the Whhe Sox. who landed on the ball in the Chicago-Mesa game here last soring, has been gien over to Mon- ieur Cliff Blankenship of the Salt Eake coast league team. Brief set the International league on fire last year, hu failed to click the goodole ball in die American. The wisdom of Cliffs purchase is questioned by those who hav bef-n trying to convince the Bee boss he ought to have a few real pitchers to toss balls to Byrd Lynn. Jack Ness, the Oakland star bats man, who set a new world record by hitting evrr game for 49 consecutive editions of the pastime, and batted 443 the while, may he claimed on a draft by the White Sox. The Federal Lea--w is also in pursuit of Jack. "Light me. diver.

It is one of the funniest farces yet produced by the capable company and gives the star comedian and his Hup-o'rt abundant opportunity to distinguish themselves. Mr. Lee played the part of the uncle, and as usual kept the house in roars of laughter. Frank Vack. Tommy Burns. Lew Matthews, Marie Barbier and Phyllis Eltis all had good parts and they played them for all they were worth. The songs were new and catchy and the dances not only live ly lint pretty and well executed. This company Is making new friends every day and Madelalne Lee is fast becoming one of the most popular prima donnas that ever came to town. With all the snap and go the chorus puts in their work it is not surprising that it is so much appreciated by the patrons of the house.

Sullivan, Mgr. m m m e. ,---1-M-'-,-'-w-v-u-u--u-u The New Comet Is Whittaker No, those two red lights over the mountains south of town are not new stars or comets, as many people sur mised last night. They are merely re.l lights on Vic llanny's sign "Hanny's Hats Always On Top", placed at the top of the ladder from which the "De mon Dare Devil" Whittaker makes his lean for life every' night at Riverside Park. Crowds of people in the resi dence sections were sure they had dis covered new twin stars until the torch was applied to Whittaker and he leaped into the air,:a mass of flames, and then they knew it was a new comet come to life. From many places in town the blaze could be seen Just as he leaped and disappeared behind the trees, but as the attraction is a fee one offered by the park without extra charge, most of the people went down where tc entire oerformance could be seen from th time he jumped from the platform at the top of the ladder until he sailed into the burning tank on the ground and extinguished 'he flames which had burned his clothes almost to cinders. Whittaker is appearing at the park every night, but as his act is the most dangerous public exhibition in the world today, most people are going to see him now for fear he may any'night dash his bn!nn out against the sides of the small landing tank, which is only three feet wide, eight feet long and " Pride," that is not Vainglorious P RIDE in herfectine lhr Product.

Goodrich Co. has been making history in the Rubber Industry, for more than 45 years. It has always been the Leader! It has almost never had a "Boom," or the reaction that fol lows Boom. It has been Conservative in all its moves never Experimenting at its Customers' Expense, yet never lagging behind first place in the Procession. It has been the Pioneer in nearly all great Improvements made in the Working of Rubber. And, it has grown steadily, surely, as well as stupendously, untiji the largest Rubber Factory in the World today, is that of The B. F. Goodrich Co. at Akron, O.

This, in line with Goodrich Co. Policy which is to base its charges only on its low Manufacturing Cost, no matter how much more price could be obtained for the greater efficiency it develops from same materials.

Enid Markey, Star of the Tenement District Enid Markey, the little actress, who, as Ruby McGraw. has the leading feminine rolo in "The Darkening Trail." the four-part Mutual Master- picture, is peculiarly successful in making women in the humblest walks of life subtly and humanly appealing. Her unquestioned skill in this line of work is widely recognized, but she re ceives no more pleasant tribute to it than is represented by the series of letters, all evidently from poor work ing people which come to her con stantly. She Is the Idol of this class Pnrl am Model for "Sin" "Don't be offended at what I'm go ing to say, but you. face is the most I besiiitifiillv wicked I have ever seen. ) The speaker was Roland Montaigne ;S' f'yr, the celebrated portrait painter and he' was addressing Mile.

A two-part Vitagraph comedy sup jlies the laughs for the evening and theie are a good lot of them, as Lil lian Walker takes the leading part in "riaying the Game." A one-reel Selig drama completes the program. "The Christian" Is Wonderful A second view of the film version of Hall Caine's great noved, "The Christ ian" which is being shown at the Ari zona theater, confirms the impression created by a first view, that it is one of the most wonderful pictures which has ever been shown in Phoenix. The story holds one from the unusual series of introductions in the preliminary reel until the very last foot of film. It is told" with a continuity of interest that is remarkable in film work and there is a realism to the picture that is usually very conspicuous by its ab sence. In fact after a little while it does not seem like a picture at all; but a most absorbing drama, wonderfully enacted by a particularly strong cast. Every member of it is an artist. The photography and effects are re markable and the work of Edith Story, Earle Williams, Charles Kent, James Lockaya and James Morrison is par ticularly fine. There is not a weak spot in the cast "The Christian" will be shown only tonight and tomorrow night, and no bodv who loves good pictures can af ford to miss it. It stands head and shoulders above anything that has been seen here since "Cabiria" Plaza Pictures For its main feature today, the Plaza has "The Other Woman" a modern drama in three reels, which tells of the pitting of the wiles of a beautiful dan cer against the love of a faithful wife. There will also be another two reel fea ture and one reel of comedy. The feature for next Sunday will be "The Wrath of the Gods" a six reel thriller.
