( DUMONT WANTS HIS E TOOAY IN WHITE SOX GAME Young Flinger Would Get Crack After His Poor '-uck Yes terday. GRIFFMEN DROP THE OPENER Have Now Won One and Lost Eight on First Trip Through West. My LOUIS A. DOUGHER. CHICAOO. III.. June 11. There' no telling what will happen today. Tho boys from tho banks of tho Totomao are real peeved over their Initial de feat here, and promise much better work. Showers arc expected, but tlio weather sharp rays they won't como till night, and so the Sunday contest may bo staged. Dumont or Ayrcs will probably be chosen for mound duty against Urban Fober. Dumont has asked permission to Btart, BrievInK over his poor luck yesterday, and may Ket his wish. Four moro Rnmes remain to bo played here, nnd It must be confessed that the outlook Is far from promising. When "Woof Woof" Wolfgang can puzz'o tho Grlffmcn. what Is to be expected from tho rcgtflar pitchers. Wolfgang l util ity man for the White Sox. yet ho had Httln tAublo in upsetting tho bent pluna of GrlfTs lads In tho owner. Failure to hit when hits meant runs cost tho Griffmen n victory yesterday. The Whlto Sox wen out. 2 to 1. In tho ninth because Dan Mocller's bono plav In thn fifth gave them ono tally and Dumont forced Schalk across In tho nnal bv hitting Buck Weaver In the Tibs. However. Jim Shaw was really responsible for tho White Sox tally In the ninth, for ho had filled the uncles with none out before Dumont replaced Going Into tho last of the ninth, the two teams wert tied, fhnw had stag gered through two frames In safety, but he promptly proceeded to dig a hole for himself hcn hn should have been .t his bcrt. Felsch singled to left. ShHW picked up Schnlk's hop nnd threu wild ly to McBrlde trying to cut off Felsch. When ho passed Murphy, filling thn corners he was derrlokcd. i Dumont sleppepd Into the breach end Tounlcr came up for Wolfgang with the bares Jammed and nono out. For a moment it seemed ns if the Griffs might get out of their troublo for Fournler filed to Mocller nnd Judge's fln relnv cut off Felch at the Plato. But It was not to her". John Collins drew a pnss. nzain filling tho bmea. Dumont was told tn keep the baM close to Wpnver. Ho did. but It wns too close. th Chicago pln.'er Mopping ono with his Whs. forcing 'Echalk over with tho needed ally. Tho GrlfTmcn had four chances to score onrt benefited by only one. Thoy Just couldn't drlvo over nn runs, nnd after tho fifth till the elphth thev bat tled to overcome tho vecult of Mocller's thoughtlessness. ' With tho bases Jammed nnd ono gon In tho fifth. Wolfgang drove a long fcul to right Moller rnn ncross mid caught the hall Had he drorPd It. Jackson would hnvi. been lipid at third. Helm: in no position for tho peg. Moeller failed to gut Jackson at the plate. It was not until Judge tripled In the eighth and Jnmtcson brought him over with n slgln th-it tho Griffmen mp.de up for Mocller's mental lapse. On the whole, Hnrper looked good, though he was unsteady In the fifth, hitting Felsch nnd passing Bchnlk. He recovered his poise In tho sixth, nnd there was no cause for removing him. Judged by his work hero, Shaw Is far from being ready to pitch for the Grlffmcn. Airtight hurling is abso lutely necessary to a team without sluggers, and Shaw is ns airtight as a screen on your sleeping porch. Since leaving home tho Griffmen have now lost eight games, won ono, nnd tied one; they havo a bunch left to play, but even prophets of old would bo puzzled If confronted with tho ques tion as to how many victories are to bo won on this trip. Johnson will pitch nt least five mora games, if that tip is worth anything to you fans. Owing to a week's heavy roln, the Held was slow nnd soggy, but both teams suffered equally and no com plaints were made. Wolfgang passed Judge and .Foster with ono gone In tho opener, hut noth ing came o It, as Milan forced 'Foster and Jamloson raised n foul for Weaver to gobble. Three hits como for the Orlffs In the fifth and yet thoy fnlled to ecore. With two gone Gcotgo McBrlde pounded a safety to left. Wolfgang knocked down Harper's drive, hut couldn't And It in tlmo to end the frame. Mocller's swing Ing bunt declined to roll fcul and tho bases were clogged fr Judge. The youngster topped ono In front of tho platter nnd McBrlde was forced. In Oielr half of tho fifth the Pox got busy. and. potting thrco on, Mocller's hone play rent Jaekson across. A dash ing double by Jackson win .a beginner. Felsch wns hit nnd Fchnlk pnised. Milan come In nnd took Torry's fly. Wolfgang drove n long foul to right and Mccller held onto It .sllowlrg Jac son to score. John Collins walked, but the srerlng ceased when Jamlcson camped under Weaver's hlfh fly. Foster's scratch single to Terry opened the' sixth, Milan forcing him with a bunt, dropping dead in front of tho plate, Jomelson ripped a single tu right. Morgnn hnminered two line fouls to left nnd then Inglorleusly breezed. Williams' roller to Kddlo Col lins left Milan nnd .Tmnteson strnnded nr.d tho V hlte Sox nhend. "Happv" Felsch drovi tlie first ball delivered by Shaw to left for a hnssock, going up on Schalk's sacrifice. Ho re MC Big League Biffers of a Day A.B. H. T.B.

By HARRY In the course of twenty-five years of active 'experience on tho links experi ence gained' In a good many parts of tho world nnd In Just about every con ceivable et of 'circumstances ono comes to learn to the full the Importance of what tho less practiced player might regard as small matters. There are in numerable points which concern details that seemingly havo nothing to do with the way in which ono hits tho ball: thay are Just trifles which the average golfer does not consider. Nevertheless, any ono of them may mean the dif ference between winning and losing a closo contest In this contribution, I propose to deal with Items that are apt to be overlooked by .tho person who Is striving for success at golf. In the first place, as regards the tee. I take It that the reader remembers that a law tee pays In the end because It Is good training for the more numerous shots that .have to be played from the turf. At any rate, It saves him from developing the pampered condition of :nlnd In which he always expects his ball to be perched i'p high, tnd Is shocked and prone to exaggerate tho difficulties when he finds it nestling n ftlttlo closer than usual to the turf. Use But Little Sand. . You want only n tiny pinch of rand for a tec, and nono of it should bo seen when the ball Is placed on It. The ulght of sand Jutting out below the ob ject on all sides, as though the ball were a kind of ornamental hcadpleco to a miniature hilt, distracts attention. You need to fix your vision on the bad: of tho ball; ground tho club nbout nu Inch behind it: and see nothing lut tho ball, which should be raised nbout a quarter of an Inch from tho teeing ground by an Invisible support of sand. Remember, too, that you have the cholco of a stance nn the teeing ground. and cun select the place, within the prescribed limits, where your feet feel , most comfortable. Often, after tailing uji a iK-Muun. i raic movru uucii j'i forward a little because the first stance did not cetr altogether happy. When thero Is an out-of-bounds area closo to the line of play, drive from that part of the teeing ground which! Is farthest from the prohibited region rnis is. perhaps, no more than an artificial meant of gaining confidence, put In many cases It Is wondrously ef fective. Often the mere knowledge that tho out-of-bounds is vefy near on either the right or the left Is the main reason that the player hits his ball into it: he thinks so much about It that ltj cAcrunvB a Kina oi magnetic jnuuciice. The farther he Is from It at the start, tho safer he feels. Dispense With Tee. At a short hole It Is frequently ad vlsablo to dispense with a tee. The shot is really Just as easy when played from a nice piece of turf, and tho dan ger of a tec when an Iron club U be ing used Is that you aro likely to get mo much under the ball and h t It un so high that you do not obtain tho necessary distance. wiomcs are a matter of considerable importance. If you wear a Jacket (and I am aware that In America many golf ers prefer to do without such a gar ment), let It be a reasonably loose-fit ting one. with plenty of room under the arms. Tho woolen Cardigan Jackets which havo been adopted by a number of players in the States have much to recommend them since they "give" to the movement of the arms. . It Is possible, however, to have too much "glvo" In the sense that over swinging may be promoted, and for that reason I always think that braces are preferable to a belt worn round the waist. Personally I would not dream or pioying on important match In a belt, or even In a new pair of braces. One's braces have to accommodato themselves to one's swing, and when they hnve done so they keep the shoulders in position better than any thing else I know. Without being op pressive they restrain a tendency to overswlng on those days when the player feels particularly active and exuberant. Many Shots Go Wrong. Every golfer experiences such days, and more often than not he finds that although his spirits gvo him a sense of efficiency amounting almost to irre sistibility, a lot of shots go wrong and his game is rather worse than when he Is In a more subdued mood. The reason Is usually that. In his splendid vital ity, he swings back too quickly and too far. This Is where braces are a help as compared with a belt. Another good tip when one le spoiling the drives by swinging back too quick ly Is to substitute a braixle' for the driver. The former has a stlffer shaft, nnd that alone helps to control the player's exhilaration. With this clr- ritmstance In view, I often carry twoJ u rivers on nn important ocqeslon one mained there, for Terry filed to Milan und Shaw threw out Wolfcning. Judge's triple, n fletco drive to left center, started tho eighth pleasantly, but when Foster rolUd nnd Mllar. fan ned things were not so bright. Jamlo hon s wallop to right tied un the count. Bay Morgan was hit, but Williams filed to Felsch and the contest continued. Weaver walked and Ness beat out a slow on0 to Foster In the eighth, but thero were two gon, nnd Jnckson'aaap to Moipui stoppd the rally. w Then came the horrlhle ninth, but you Know all about that now.

I rccomnioud shoes for golf in pief crencn to boots because they give tho Hnkic the greater measure of freedom. A good golfer uses his ankles on tho links moro than tho layman imagines, and more, perhnp.i, than tho nvorugu player realizes, when, as tho cliib goes up, the left heel nnd tho outer Mdo of the left foot arc raised from tho ground, there ought to bo u good deal of strain on that ankle, tho reason being that the heel should not turn out of posi tion In the smallest degree, although the body Is screwed round from tho feet to, the neck, with the hits acting as the pivot. The ttrnln is met mora easily In tfioos than When the anklu is encased in leather. , Use Rufeber-Soicd Shots. In America, where the courses are generally dry and hard, It Is a good thing to wear rubber-soled shoes. I do not think they are to bo recommended In Britain, where, on tho more velvety turf, nails In the shoes give the mora secure foothold, but I found rubber tolcs very satisfactory during my last tour in tho states. The worst of nails In tho shoes when one Is, playing in America is that, on very dry gcound, thv hurt tho feet and do not. grin' thoroughly. Beware of changing from boots, or rhoes which have heels, to flat shoes. It makes a deal of difference to your stance. , I do not recommend a long-handicap filayer to ubo tho small, heavy type or all. It calls for wholly accurato hit ting, ' otherwise it dees not rise. A ball of medium wplaht nnd normal slxe Is best for the average golfer, nlthougli tne small, heavy article is easier wun which lo'putt. Do not engage In several practice xwlngs before hitting the ball. A few vears nco theru was much comment In Hrltnln on this subject, and It wnn raid War most or tne young Amineun ninvxn wnr.. mnltlnir it n. custom to pwl'ng the club carefully three or four times at an imagtnnry oojeci oemr brnrdng themselves for tho effort. I ennrot say that I noticed that tho prac tice was general, but some American Bnlffl.a ..a. LAHalnlv nfrflptnrl tn It. I feel certain that It Is much moru IIKely to lend to confusion thnn to success. !caue by the time that you conm to plaj the shot you have several Ideas In vnuf hpftH nrh horn nf n.. nractlcft swing and are not quite certain what you am trying to cio. Trust to Judgment. Similarly, I do not believe In exam It.lng the lino of a putt lilh from tho ball and from the hole. As a rulo, It is safest to trust to the judgment which you form after Inspecting the line from the ball. If ou r.o to the other end, you will generally see another line and between the two, you win fall. Hold te wooden clubs partl'JIarly tho drlvciwwith moderate looseness. That will help you to swing freely, and ine grip win iignicn involuntarily ns you hit. Hold the Iron clubs decidedly more firmly; the swing is shorter nnd more compact, nnd unless you exercise a secure grip, the sharp-soled character of the club will cause It to turn In the hand as it touches the ground. There Is not the same danger with a wooden club, which, having a broad sole, does not dig Into tho turf. When, however, I recommend a "firm" grip I do not mean anything so desperately tight as to make the blood run out of the knuc kles. With wooden clubs, the firmest hold should be exercised with the thumbs nnd forefingers. The other fingers will look after themselves. A match which Is played without the exchange of a few words every now anu ngnln Is rnther trying to tho nerves but I do not know of any greater nui sance than an opponent who talks con stantly during the rounds. He will not settle down himself to tho task In hand, and will not let you do so. Economy In speech Is n principle worth following on the links; the right thing said at the right time In a few words makes a pleasant break in the proceedings, but loquacity Is nothing short of cruel to a man who wants to pursuo the game seriously, I once heard of a club which posted' a notice In the pavilion: "tho following members arc so addicted to talking on the course that they are requested henceforth to piny In respir ators." Then followed a list of tho offenders., Do not let caution becomo nn obses sion. There are many golfers who mako a practice or taking no risks, be they ever so small. It Is a plodding form of courting success, nnd the satisfaction to bo derived from It can never bo grent. Certainly there Is notning to be gained by attempting foolhardy shots, but the golfer should cultlvatn an el ement of boldness In his manner of playing tho gnme. For that reason I do not believe In having n hunker too close In nt tho bnck of a putting green; It Is npt to inspire the player with Ex cessive caution when he executes his approach. Concentrate Attention. Onco you havo takon up your stance p.nd mode your mind what sort of shot you are going to play, concentrate the whole of your attention on ft, and do not alov yourself to think of .in al ternative ncheme. I must confess that occasionally I have changed "my mind during tho actual swlnglng'af the club. The result has usually 'been unsatis factory. ' Do not depend too much upon tho advice of your caddie. Sometimes It eases the situation when tho plnjer Is uciweeu mo minor ns lo wnat to co, but In (ho ordinary way, the golfer Is bost served by following his own In stinct. If he wants to do one thing and tho caddie recommends another, he may faU at that which the caddie aavmea ror no oiner reason than that ho did not fancy It. And then he blamcu his henchman Instead of himself. The player Is renlly to blamo for not showing grcuter resolution. In n four-ball match there Is often one player who s horelesHly out of tho hunt at a hole, but who Insists on play ing It out to the Utter end ns though ho had a, chance of helping nt It, This circumstance moro than any other causes four-ball matches to bo pro tracted afalrs and spoils their enjoy ment. They would cni'se no delay worth mentioning and would bo decid edly pleasanter if the man who hnd got Into perloun difficulties and could quite safely "leave It to hlu partnor" would pick up his- ball, ttopyrlght, ISM. by the Wheeler Syn dicate, inc.).

Jim Dunn Magnate in Cleveland Fans of Sixth City Like Himf Because He Is "Plain Man" Clark Griffith Is Also Well Thought 6f Around American League Circuit. By LOUIS A. CIIICAQO. June lL-JIm Dunn, tho now bost of the Cleveland Indians, own the Sjxth City. He 1 Cleve land'a long-lost white-haired boy. While sojourning by Lake Erie, we met and talked, res. and dined, with Jim Dunn. He is a moat likable man for a baseball magnate. Dunn Is a heavily built man dark aa to complexion with an Irish eyo that fairly sparkles as he talks. A contractor who worked un from the very bottom, he knows men and measures. He Is most democratlo In his methods, being something Uk Joe Lannln In this respects There are no airs about him. He's all wool. "How. do you like being a baseball magnate?" we asked him. "Well. It's all right so far"-and his tyts twinkled "but I'm not used to this hand-shaking business. Everywhere I go. I meet somebody who wants to shake hands. I may get used to it later, but right now I feel like reaching out to grip the hand of every man I see. I didn't know that was the part of a base ball magnate when I became inter ested In the Cleveland club." "It'll be worse. If your team wins the pennant," we remarked. "What? Worse? It can't be done." he laughed. "Then alt I'll have to do la stick to the soup and fish. Everything else will be the same. "Do you know what embaresses me most? It's this making speeches. I can't learn to do anything like that. I am not tongue-tied around a table, but If I have to stand up and talk good night, boys, I'm through. Bob McRoy has been booking mo for addresses and speeches ever stneo I took hold of things here. I'll have to stand It, I guess, but I wish I could make a speech like Clark Griffith. He's the goods." Jim Dunn has never been in Wash ington, but he has promised to visit the Capital before the present season Is done, making the trip with his team. When he appears In the Capi tal, you fans "In the know" will have to be rendy, for Dunn sets the pace and never weakens.
