The Cornell-Pepco game today 13 ex pected to decide the championship of Section A of the post-season games, and will go far toward nominating the win ner for the Intercity series. Cornell and Pepco have each won a game in the aectlon, and are looked upon as the real pennant contenders, the Bankers and Poatofflce being somewhat behind. The game this afternoon should prove attractive enough to draw the banner crowd of tho games in the post-season series. Cornell Company has loomed up strong In the closing weeks of the season, and Pepco Is perhaps the most popular of the amateur baseball teams In the city, winning the Independence League pennant after a long, hard struggle. Manager Cornell is likely to start Thompson in the box, with Noyca catching, while Manager Gray will use Balzar, who has had unusual success this season. The Section C games are slated to start today, Park, winners of the North ern Association flag, and Southern, of the Railroad Y. M. C. A. League, hook ing up In a game at the Railroad V. M. C. A. grounds. Section A Bankers vs. Rsstofflce. "Chief" Greene, for the Bankers, and Walter Ferguson, for the Postofflce team, opposed each other yesterday, the honors being even. Tho Bankers man aged to win by a -l-to-3 score, due to the fact that errors lost Postofflce Its chances to win. J'mmy Kerr, veteran player of the Postofflce team, made the stellar catch of the afternoon when he caught Noyes' short By after a hard run. The Bank ers opened up In the second inning, scoring two runs on an Infleld hit by Riddle. Adams' error of Dyer's bounder. a wild pitch to flrst bv Ferguson, an.l u single by Z.ichai'y after West haa tanned. Singles by West and Zachary again counted lor the Bankers In the sixth Inning, VI est beating the throw to the plate for a single tally. Postofflce auo scored in the sixth on Riddle's error, a sacrifice hit bv Vaughn and Bradlev'h I double. Jn tho next round Postofflce managed to count two. Beard got a lire on Hayes boot, Fenton doubled, ;ind Kraft brought both runners across with a neat single. The winning run came across for tne Bankers in the eighth frame. Rawllngs doubled and scored on Barnhardt's er ror. - The Printers, champions ot the Mai quette League, are out of the running for the honors in section B today, hav ing been defeated by tho Ninth team in a cloo 3 to 2 game yesterday. Ninth Is practically conceded the champion ship of the second today, naving three straight wins. The game was one of the best of the series according to the many fans who took in tho contest. Ninth opened up with two runs in the flrst inning, and the Printers came In for a single run. Tying up in tne third frame the game ran nip and turk for threu Innings when Ninth managed to put the deciding run acrosb. Three fast double plays marked tho jame. the Printers getting two. In dividual fleldlng stunts were In order throughout the contest, and while the hitting was not especially heavy, tito game wap made interesting by the clev er work cf the fielders. BOB THAYER'S SPORTING GOSSIP -"EVERY KNOCK IS A BOOST." In third place today. The Nationals are In third place today because they hBve struck a decided slump with the stick. However, there is little use In becoming exelted over the situation. With the return of their Battlng ability, nnd It may appear al most any day, the Nationals will again be in the running. They aie bound to cume back, so cheer up, bugs. Bd Sox Invincible. Jimmy McAleer's Red Sox seem In ducible. Every club In the league has failed to stop them In their rush. In dted, they have won a majority of games from every club but the Na tionals, who hold them to 8 to 7. Their path Is strewn with roses and they should romp Into the honors. If this rec otd is continued. It takes more than one club to knock a team from the title. Giants are slipping. The Giants are slipping. They have been slipping for the past month, too, end Chance's Chicago Cubs have a lino oppoiluntty of catching up with them. J he berles opening today between them tray mnrk the turning of the tide In the National League race. Once in the Had, the Cubs snould never be stopped. Kllng is done. The latest report, that George Stal lings will succeed Johnny Kllng at the neaa or the Boston National League club has the ring of truth. Stallings Is of big league caliber, while Kllng Is about done In fnst rnmnnnv na a niaiH and knows it. Jim Gaffney is a wise business man, willing to let Stallings hold the reins, and should meet with more success In 1913 than In 1912.' The wrestling bout. It is not unlikely that wrstllng li Washington has seen Its finish if lac., night's bout is to be taken into consid eration In the last two matches here rough work has marred the big match of the evening, the police being forced to stop proceedings. The wrestlers have simply killed the game, and de prived themselves of good money In consequence, and they have no one but themselves to blame. Cornell to win. BINGLES AND BUNTS By Grantland Rice Speaking of Considerable Pitchers Jnhnaon carries hale of mnokc Marqunrd'a nlant ha a two-font drop nuckerf You aald I, kid, SOMIS bloke And one of the hent In the pitching croa Alexander and WalHh and Gregg In there wlnnlne and alvraya good Sllplt along to the King of l'eg And then again Ihere'n a guj- named Wood.

The Grandolddope Is without doubt a wonderful In stitution. You can't beat it. "Well," remarked a Giant fan recently, "the edge Is all with the Giants, whatever happenB this trip. Suppose they only return home even with the Cubs? What then? The Giants have twenty games at home In September and tho Cubs have sixteen on the road. That's where the pipe will be." It sounds reasonable, too. It would even sound more reasonable If it wasn't for the fact that in their last home stay the leaders won eight and lost eight, while the Cubs on the road were winning fifteen against three defeats. At this same ratio, the Giants had better remain abroad and permit the Cubs to hustle along on native soil. Cubs hook up this trip in a series which stands as the one big vital spot of the entire year's work. The old gag, of home and road contests 13 now about 2 1-3 cents per hogshead. The Senators have done their best work on the road this season. So have the Cubs. The Red Sox have fared equally well away from home, where they have won consistently. The Giants have torn off as many victories abroad as they have under the shadow of Mr. Coogan's frowning bluff. They play the greater part of September at homo with the Cubs on hostile soil, but this has about as much to do with doping out the race as the price of golf balls has to do with the high cost of living in grand old Odessa. We hope the composing room has followed our sug gestion and left "Crucial Series" standing in cold type, ready for Instant use. If not, kindly rush the same to the nearest linotype and have it set over a Chicago date line. "Crucial" Is the only word when tho Giants and President Murphy, of tho Cubs, charges Manager Bresnahan with favoring McGraw to boost the world tour planned this winter. Since the matter has been under discussion the Cardinals have won five out of seven battles with the Giants. If this be "laying down," we'd esteem It considerable bliss to see the Cards at work when they were out there trying to win. C. Webb Is still the Mad Mullah of the nation's favorite sport. He'd probably be willing to be Identified as the "man higher up" in New i'ork's police scandal to draw his share of the head lines for u fortnight Running second up to the first of September may be an ideal nosition in the race from which to launch a sprint, but It depends also on how far said second Is wedged away from the guys out in front. The Senators are not a total loss yet, but the psychology of their position is likely to wane If the present gap is stretched within the next few days. STEUBENER ENTERS BALTIMORE SHOOT District Marksman to Go With Analostan Gun -Club to Matches In Monumental City Many Other Wash ingtonians to Participate. Phil Steubener, one of the best marks men In the District, not only at clay pigeons but especially at live birds, will accompany the members of the Analos tan Gun Club to Baltimore August 27, r8, and 23. for the second annual tourna ment of the Maryland State Sportsmen's Association. Steubener, who seldom finishes with a record less than 95 per cent at the weekly Saturday shoots, is In the best of form and will undoubtedly make a good showing. Those who have already signified their Intention fit attending the tournament follow: Miles Taylor, secretary; Dr. B. L. Tajlor, Dr. A. V. Parsons, E. W. Ford. Dr. A. B. Stlne, James A. Brown, Frank Huseman. President C. S. Wil son, and about six others. One hundred singles In 20-target events will lie shot on practice day and the flrst and second days will have the regular 150-target program. The three man State team race at 60 targets per man will be the first day's feature and the event in which the locals expect to shine. The winners will receive three handsome gold medals. On the final day the State individual championship, open to all amateurs re siding in Maryland and the District of Columbia, will be shot at 50 targets. A diamond watch fob will be awarded theriarylander bv the Emerson Hotel, of Baltimore. Shooting will begin at 9:30 o'clock each day. Toney Joins Cubs. CHICAGO, Aug. J5. The Cubs' pitch ing start was augmented today by the arrival of Fred Toney, former Cub, and Grover Laudermllk, brother of the erst while St. Louis phenom, from the Louisville American Association club. mmcmtMsrsmzsAiti Ty Cobb poled his 176th hit Tuesday, leaving hla average at .446 for the year, as he now numbers 396 trips to tho plate. Cobb has hit safely in eighty-flve of his ninety-seven starts, which accounts in large measure for the difficulty Trls Speaker and Joe Jackson have encountered In reaching the crest. Overhauling a .440 batsman is reputed to bo considerable undertaking, even for a Speaker of the House of Swat. Add to the "Dim Dream" compilation the slump of the Red Sox. It's either now or never," remarked Commander Mack in an address to his troopers. Last call for "Last stand in last ditch." Cubs Ready for Clash With Fading Giants CHICAGO, Aug. 16. In a warlike frame of mind, Chance's Cubs were confident today of taking the flrst of the crucial series from the Giants. The suspension of Johnny Evers, Chance de clared, would make no difference. The Cubs would win anyhow, he said. "We'll trim the Giants without the Trojan," was the sentiment expressed by the entire team. Either Matty or Marquard will take the slab for tho Giants, It was an nounced. Chance will probably pick Lavender or Richie. "Relay Plan" Proposed For Golf Tournaments NEW YORK, Aug. 15.-The United States Golf Association contemplates changing the present urrangement for deciding the national K0lf title.
