The struggle of the day, coming af ter two desperate encounters In Bos ton which left the Brooklyns without a victory and gave the Red Sox a commanding lead in the battle for the title, , promised to be perhapsthe 'crucial" game , of the series. On familiar ground after the loss of two. games away from home, the Dodgers figured In the calculations of ardent Bropklynltes as having a .better chance. - A pair of reverses by a sin gle run margin. In- one of which five extra innings were required to suV due them, , was not looked uponas decided defeat. Nevertheless it was realized that today's -battle might vir tually decide' the series 1 as another setback would force the Robins to the wall where a single thrust would mean their downfall. ' , Jt was likely to be either the turn ing point of. the series or the contin uation of the Red Sox march to vic tory and With no decided superiority In run-making power demonstrated by the American Leaguers, the sup porters of the' Tener circuit cham pions were not inclined to concede anything unless or until thejt ,were forced to do so.

Of the Brook lyns, popular approbation was'' forth coming for "Hi" Myers, whose home run in the first inning of the second game at Boston kept the "Robins in the running until' after the break of the Hth and for Marquard and Smith whose twirling performance, even though barren of victory, had endeared them to the Brooklyn, root ers. . . -..'''.', paansmSets of fhe.BropifiJyn-teMn- x EBBETS , FIELD DIAMOND , .

The Tiger play against North Carolina was not without flaws, and Rush will un doubtedly strive to perfect his team work within the next week as much as possible. He will probably hkve his hand forced a little in the develop ment of his team, because of the un expected strength of Tufts. . The dropping of Rutgers andSya CU80 from this year's schedule l, wias partly caused by the" fact that the Tifjfer coach believe such heavy teams were, too strong for so early'in the sea son. 1 Now that the ycqnquerors of the Harvard eleven are coming to 'Tiger town,, he will have to turn back' to some of last year's tactics. - BAN ON BULL FIGHTING, . - ' - - ' .

New York, Oct. 10 No matter Which league enjoys the honor-, of winning this year's world's champion ship, the fact remains that the win ning team will be piloted by a man ager who madd his reputation . as a catcher. It seems a coincidence that the men who have donned the mask and. protector have monopolized the premier honors In both the National and American leagues for the' season just closed. Moreover, the same con ditions applied to 'the . 1915 season, when the Red Sox and the , Phillies, both piloted ' by managers who had become famous while working behind the bat, succeeded in winning the' pen nants In both major leagues. , . Wilbert Robinson .made his reputa tion as a catcher and so did Pat Mor an; Going still further, we find that the-'Boston Braves,' who were strong contenders for the flag for the entire season, were managed by George Stallings, and while the average "fan" may not be aware of- it, the latter of ten felt the "kerplunk'' of the ball in hi mitt while standing back ofl home plate. ; Every follower , of the great' na tional game is acquainted' with the ability of Bill Carrigan, who was and still- is one of the leading catchers in the American league. It is still fresh in the minds of many that when the Red Sox showed signs of slumping in the first part of September Bill jump ed into harness and' coached hi pitch ers back into form. So this year's world's series .will bring together catcher against catcher, and they'll have to settle it between themselves. KAUFF WILL BE STAR NEXT YEAR BROUTHERS THINKS New York, Oct. 10 Nobody can deny that old Dan Brouthers knew something about hitting. Dan has been a regular, attendant at all the Giants' games at New York. He has been carefully watching Benny Kauff. And here is what the old-limer ha3 been quoted as saying about the "shrinking Violet. " ' ' "This Kauff," he said, "will be a great ' man for McGraw next year. I have been sizing him up carefully. He is game. Next year the crowds will be with him. .He worried too much the early part) of the season. A lad as strong as Kauff should be a won derful hittar as long us he picks out good balls. Benny was' reaching too tar for 'em, but since the team came home this last, time I notice a great improvement. He isn't going after the bad ones. He is making the pitdh er put them over. When they do he hits 'em; when they don't ha walks. He is getting on the bases I guess McGraw must have drummed it Into him. "No better Judge of a ball evsr liv ed than McGraw. He' was always on the bases, After he began I to ac quire a reputation as a good hitter I said to Amos Rusie one day: ." 'Amos, what Is it this little devil hits, or what is it he dont hit that gets him' by?': "Why," said Amos, "the little suck er won't hit at one if it's an inch out side the plate., I've tried him on my fast one and everything else. - It's got to be oyer v or he won't swing at it. A team of that kind of hitters would run all the pitchers right . out of the league." ' CORNELL OPENS BY BEATING GETTYSBURG IN VERY EASY MANNER Ithaca, Oct, .10 Cornell opened its football season yesterday afternoonsby defeating. Gettysburg by the score of 20 to 0 on a wet field, and amife a drizzle'. The husky Cornell line over powered its lighter opponents, and the Cornell backs seldom failed to gain except in the third period, although they did not get under way very fast. The! ends were slow in getting down under punts, permitting Rote and Strettoni to make big runs after receiving-kicks. Cornell handled the . ball cleanly, and also followed it closely, the recd ery of. fumbles by Gillies and Gal braith giving the team an opportunity to make two touchdowns. The Itha cans also execute several clever for ward passes. They lost more than 75 yards by penalties, one 20-yard set back depriving' them ofa touchdown ,in the third period. Altogether, the showing made by the team under the conditions was satisfactory. Gettys burg was no match f orthe Ithacans, but played a. snappy game all through. SWENSON SIGNED TO - WITH RIBBONS THIS SEASON Chicago City Series Proved Profitable for Players Other Sporting Nots I (By "Wagner.) "Walter Swenson, the , clever guard who is one of the most popular players whoever appeared in a local uniform, has been signed by Manager Leavy for the Blue Rdbbosjbasketball team. Sev eral other clubs in the Interstate league "ware angling for 'Swenson but Leavy got him. Beckman of last year's Ribbons and Murray, who played with the crack Sheepshead Bay five last season, will also.be with the Ribbons. Manager Leavy did not re tain Center Leonard' and Guard Roach of last season's five. This pair will be with Danbury. Manager Leavy Is on the lookout for a g6od center. The Ribbons will be in the Inter state league this year and the cam paign will open November 6. Other clubs will be Danbury, Stamford, Jer sey City, North Hudson and Newark. Two games a week will (be played, one at home and one on the road. It Is the Intention of the Brooklawn Country club officials to bring tennis players of national renown to this city next season.

The . Red Box have always been fortunate in their selection -of pinch hitters. . It was Henrikseh, a pinch hitter,- who played such havoc with YESTERDAY'S GAME LONGEST IN WORLD'S SERIES HISTORY Chicago Cubs and Detroit Once Played' Thirteen Innings o Tie New York. Oct 10 rSince the world's series was instituted under the direction, of the National Commission, in 1903, only seven extra inning games have been playedi and the one yester day between the Boston Red Sox and the Brooklyn Robins, which went'-14 Innings, established a - record. ' Previously the longest world's series game on the books was the first -contest' of the Chicago-Detroit series in 1907, which resulted In a tie score TWO OF HARVARD PLAYERS INJURED Cambridge, Mass., Oct.,10. The Hay vard football regulars did nothing yes terday afternoon after their Tufts de feat, except to-put in an hour's signal drill. Bond, one of the' half backs, dislocated hia shoulder Saturday and will be out for some time, and Closely Taylor, besides smashing his wrist, ialso had a bad leg which will keep him out for more than a week. s There was a red hot scrimmage, however, between the second and Uhlrd 'Varsity 'teams. Westmore Wlllcox played In the backfield with Hitchcock and Burnham,. arvd made two pretty thirty yard end runs. FIELDER JONES THINKS PITCHING STAFF MOST IMPORTANT TO SUCESS Grandstand managers are pretty well 'i. agreed that Fielder Jones' Brownies lacked that run making es sential a punch. Sixty-four games of the one-run margin variety, 6 of these defeats, are pointed to 'as evid ence that the club is, deficient in bat ting effectiveness, writes Ed Wray In the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It is also agreed by the amateur managers that ..Fielder Is making a mistake In sitting tight with his pres ent outfit and in planning to continue his 1917 campaign wth the same punchless cast. But there is the large "on-the-other-hand" to his argument, one trat can be backed up. by figures. ' Batting Is far from being everything In the life of a successful team; and that the In jection of a little more timeliness in to the swatting of our Brownies, plus the team's great superiority in speod. may yet. vindicate the club's manager. The answer to this view will, of oourse, be: "See what happened to the club this year. It had a fair trial." Jones argues differently. He maintains that a good start would have brought confidence and a near-first-pkice position to his club. Jones holds-Aand he Is supported by facts that pitching is the first thing needed by a team.- With that anything is possible. . He regards the failureof his own club as due to Koobs illness at ,the start and in mid-season,- Davenports failure to round to form until he had lost about nine games. Plank's tardy return to cham pionship class and; the failure of Hamilton to . come through, rather than to the downfall of clean-up men1 Pratt and Marsans. Johnny McGraw is ready to O. K. the view about pitching.' For while everybody is crediting his new Infield with the return to winning form of the Giants, it is noteworthy that the pitchers of the club, in annexing their long string of victories, have allowed a grand average of only 1.6 earned Tuns per nine inning game. That ought to win almost without hitting. ' Farmer-Want Ads. One Cent a Word. the Giants In the 1912 series. N ' "J Even if they didn't play for the world's title, the -members of the White Sox and Cubs made a pretty good thing out of the Chicago city series. The players will divide $19,- 681. The Sox get 60' per cent, of this. The i amount , received exceeds last year's total by about $4,000. f The American Chain fqotball play ers' will drill this week in prepar ation for the game with the High bridge A. A. eleven of Jersey City, which will be played next Sunday at Nefield park. There . has to be goat In every world's series and Jake Daubert of Brooklyn, seems to have the angora title won already. He was up five times yesterday and didn't get a blow. Bad base. running by Brooklyn, a fault of the Dodgers throughout the season, has proved very costly so far in the series.- I Wheat made a mis take Saturday which cost a run and yesterday Pitcher Smith tried to take three baseso on a hit when he should have halted on second. ' The special trains bearing the Red Sox, Brooklyns and bands of rooters passed through this city about 11:30 last night on the way to New York.

In 1912 the New York Giants played an 11 Inning tie at to C with the Red Sox. and In 1911 the Athletics defeated the Giants in an 11 inning struggle by a score of 3 to 2. WATERBURY WINS BOWLING PRIZE AT OPENING OF ALLEYS There was a big turnout of bowling fans at the Park City alleys last night when the formal opening of the alleys for the season was held. Manager Connie Lewis was presented with tfvo baskets of flowers and Prexy Hrry Quinn presented his compliments.' Six teams engaged in a contest for prize money, Waterbury, Bridgeport, Merl den Casinos, New Haven, Stratford and the Brooklawns being among the contestants.

ANNIVERSARIES OP RING BATTLES 1910-Jeorge Chaoey defeated Bat tling; Kelly in six rounds at Balti more. This 'bout marked the begin ning of Chaney's active ring career. The hard hitting Baltimore bantam then -knocked out six kids in rapid succession, but he got a taste of his own medicine the following April, when Young Britt put him to sleep. In June of 1911 he fought a 20-round draw with Kid Williams, and then be gan another long string of knockouts, earning for ' himself the title of "Knockout King," which, he emblaz oned upon his manly bosom. Cha ney's batting average of knockouts is the highest of any modern scrapper, about 60 per cent, of his' contests hav ing been won by the administration of the soporlflo Vunch to his victims. 'In tackling Johnny Kilbane the little Baltlmorean bit off more than he could masticate, and again exper ienced the feeling of defeat. Chaney declares that it doesn't hurt to be rocked to sleep by an - opponent's glove, but it is only natural that a fellow who deals so extensively in knockouts should defend his own line of goods. JUST ARRIVED DUTCH AND FRENCH BULBS. JOHN RECK. SOX Odds 5 to 1 On ? Red Sox to Win Out New York, Oct. 10. The follow ers of the Boston Red Sox were of fering 6 to 1 last night that Carri gan and his men woud beat Brook lyn in the' World's Series. The advantage of two games is considered quite enough to justify the price. The more enthusiastic Brooklyn rooters were still express ing a blind faith in the Robins, but 1 they were not disposed to stake their money at the odds offered, I DARCY ONLY ONE WHO WILL TACKLE ANY OLD FIGHTER New York, Oct. 10 Stanley Ketch ell was the last of the reckless match makers. While Jess Willard and Johnny Kilbane are supreme in their, respective classes and therefore can not be said to be dodging any, one there are very few prominent 'boTc ers in the ring today who are going out of their way in search of the toughest opponents to be found. Ketchell's disposition was such that he refused to be restrained by the ad vice of his managers to go slow and pick the easybnes. He always want ed to be doing something worth while. He was absolutely without fear both when fighting and when It came to making a match. The fact that he was risking his prestige and earning power never seemed to have any effect on him whatever. He was a great gambler and his gameness was far su perior to that of the fighter who can take unlimited punishment ' without wincing. , Les Darcy seems to have much of Ketchell's willingness to fight as well as his ability. It is unfortunate that he should have to waste his talents over in Australia, where there is no one within miles of his class. He will ' be a great card if he ever comes to this country. A' Darcy-Dlllon match looks like ths biggest thing in the pugilistic Una that has ever taken place barring a few of the heavy weight championship matches.
