IN HOT GAME
New Britain, July 1 Timely hits,
mlied with free transportation, gave
Bridgeport a victory over the New
Britain team here yesterday afternoon
at Electric Field, 10 to 5. Heath and
Noyes featured . the contest with home
runs over the left field fence " but
Walsh kept the rest of the team well
in band and allowed only nine hits, a
number rather above his average but
nevertheless, so scattered that they.
were of little use.
Wilson was hit consistently when
there were men on bases and was not
effective at any time except in the
fourth, fifth and ninth, i The chief
feature of the contest was the inter
pretation that Umpire Keenan put
upon' the ground rules. In the sixth
inning, Bridgeport had three men on
bases when Crook came to 'bat and
banged the ball into the vinery that
adorns the right field fence. Umpire
Keenan averred that the 'ball struek
to the right of a designated post which
is the dividing- line 'between two base
and three base hits. It might be men
tioned that the cloister like trimmings
are p'oison ivy and the rule was made
to save the fielders from digging into
it wvth their bare hands. .
Owner Scinskt was of the opinion
that the 'ball did- not go in the, vines
but hit the fence and bounded into the
fielder's .hands. Tetreault threw, to J
third and stopped the procession 'y
putting out Bowman. Under the rul
ing, , Bowman was not out and Ens
also made the plate. -
Bridgeport started the fracas toy
summing up three" runs in the opening
stanza on three hits and a pass. The
second netted them two on a two bag
ger, two singles and an error 'by Noyes.
Bridgeport had increased its -number
to five in the fourth with two sin
gles and tucked the game away in
the seventh when four runs were net
ted with three passes, and three 'bag
ger which Umpire Keenan decided and
a single, t The score:

recent western trip the unions issued
cards advising the ' fans not to pis

JEM WARD WAS FIRST fRINGEH"
There have been many "ringers" in
the history of the ring, and this srna
of deception is by no meatus oxtmet.
The methods' of pugilistic "rifcgerki"
have changed little since Jem Ward
started" the game of guile away back
in 1823. To toe exact, it .was ninety
one years ago today, July 1, 18 23, that
Jem, who; later- became champion of
England, set the stage for what was
probably the first stunt of this kind
ever pulled off. , .
Jem found it impossible to get a
fight in London, and, as he was short
of the needful he cooked up a little
scheme to add to his roll. Jem was
an artist and something of an actor
when not engaged in polishing- off his
opponents, and the plan he decided
on was certainly artistic. With a cou
ple of companions : he tramped to
Bath, where the races were to -begirt
on the first of July. On the way they
togged themselves out in the regalia
of simple rubes, and it ' was in this
disguise that Jem reached Bath, then
England's center of fashionable in
iquity, on the first day of the race
meet. - -
It was the custom, during the race
meet at Bath, for tho "toffs" or noble
sports, to hang, up a good purse for
the local yokels to fight" for, and" it
was this purse that attracted Jem to

greater activity with th .willow dur

be has shown to date. The half way
mark of the present campaign will be
reached next week- and Lajoie has
come far from gathering one-half the
number of hits he needed when the
race began. ' '
J"he opening game of the present
season showed Lajoie 108 hits under
the 3,000 mark. His eighteen years,
as a major leaguer had produced 2,
892 hits. To get 108 hits in a season
seemed comparatively easy for a slug
ger of the Lajoie type who had been
good for between 176 and 200 a sea
son, year after year. But with the
season almost half completed the task
begins to loom up a difficult one af
ter all. - , - .

The latest unofficial American Lea

hits, which would make his
total 2,934. He must make sixty
six hits before he can be crowned a
member of the Three Thousand Club.
Illness has been mainly responsible
for Lajoie'a present shortage of hits
the smallest number that he has own
ed at this stage of the race since he
began to batter down fences in Phil
