SANBORN. Chicago, Oct. Î). —In a letter treating of the exposure of the crookedness in the vorld's series of 1919, an annouy mous fan asks this pertinent question: "What is it about the glorious climate of California that breeds that kind of ball players?" At first thought one is inclined to do California an injustice, because the alleg ed ring leaders in the biggest two scan dals that have developed in the major leagues recently have been Californiens. But for each ringleader there has been a ready tool who nçver lived or played on the Pacific coast, except possibly in spring training. First Drastic Action on Coast. Not all the professional players who have been involved in betting scandals came from California. It is true Hal Chase, t'hiek Gandil, Claude Williams. Fr.ed McMullin. Charles Ilisberg. Buck Weaver, Tom Seato.ii, and Dick Rutnler either have lived in California or have played ball in the Pacific coast league. But why blame the glorious climate for L»»e Magee. Eddie Cicottp. Heme Zim merman, Joe Jackson, or Hap Felseh. to say nothing of others whose names have been "mentioned" in connection with the scandal? Then don't forget that the first really drastic action against: suspected Hull players was taken by President McCarthy of the Pacific Coast league._ It is true the New York and Chicago National lea gue clubs dropped from their pay rolls certain players without branding them properly, except in the case of Lee Magee, who forced in court the publica tion of the reasons for his release. Takes Risk of Law Suits. But the new executive of the Pacific Coast league came out flat footed with ! his reasons for not. wanting certain play I ois in his circuit, at. the risk of involving ! himself and his clubowners in law suits. I That is on" feather that cannot be pluck ! ed from the cap of California. If the Golden state cannot furnish its own alibi for Chase, Risberg. and Mc Mullin. perhaps this will do: For years California has entertained so ma.ny idle rich from other sections of tin- country that it is small wonder some of its young er generation should become _ infected with the desire to corral a little easy money without working for it. No Fault of California. There probably are more gamblers in California living on "unearned incre ment" than there are ball players in dis grace, many times over, but jt is one thing to win by gambling in Wal! street and another thing to work the double cross in sport.

Phone 6994 213, Central Avenue exists just as surely between business and sports as it does between the male and female of the species. This is no defense of double dealing in sport, but merely an answer to the fan who harbored ill will ugainst. California for its crooked sportsmen. They are in digenous to no one section and the same is true for honest and fearless sports men. Majors Lack Same Backbone. Baseball owes President McCarthy a vote of thanks for his fearless stand ing against undesirables, and it may l.e added without further comment that if the same backbone had been shown in the major leagues in dealing with play ers under suspicion there never would have beein the blot on baseball which the exposures in connection with the last world's series put there and which only years of cleaning can erase. The memory of the Devlin quartet never perished, although baseball sur vived that early disgrace and became all the better for it, until the guardians of the national pastime became careless.

Baltimore, Oct. 9.—The third game of the interleague series between Balti more and St. Paul today was a veritable 1 rout and the Orioles chalked up their third straight victory in as many starts, the count being 9 to 2. After the first round there was little to it and the new international league champions kept on increasing their lead right up to the windup. Jack Bentley, who won the opener from the American champions, was sent back at them and made good after a poor start. The Saints collected four of their seven safe blows off him in the first round, which netted them their only counts. After the opening session the Orioles' star left-hander was well nigh invincible and only two men got past first base. On the other hand, Charley Ilall. the westerner's best bet in the pitching line, who twirled a fair game in the opener, although defeated, failed to show as much stuff today and was an easy pick for Jack Dunn's crew. He retired, after the fourth round, the Birds having chalked up seven runs during that time. Williams pitched fair ball during the two innings he worked, but Grinner was touched up for a quartete of safeties in the eighth reckless base running by 1 the home team helping him out. About 15,000 persons attended the contest. The same teams will play again tomorrow after which they will leave for St. Paul to wind up the series the first, game in the Minnesota city being booked for Wednesday. Score: R. H. E.
