CLARENDON MAKES START
1VITH ARMY MEDICO CLUB
1 Ttw WRVATJ MORSE.
Joe Geibel's Clarendon lads are counting upon coming to the front
ax today's game with the Army Medical School team at American League
Park. It will be the first appearance ofthc boys from across the Potomac
and they are more than anxious to take a victory home tonight.
Out at the Union League Park the Quantico Marines, headed by Lieut
James Craige, will stack up against the Commerce nine which dropped a
battle to the War Kisk Insurance nine yesterday. Clarendon will proijably
pitch Emmons while the Medicos will start Keleher or Parks. The Ma
rines may use Singleton, while Commerce will probably pitch Dave Pfeiffer.
War Risk. 101 Coninneree. 1.
WT Risk Insurance surprised the
talent In the section one engagement
at .American League park by pre
senting' the well known Central High
School hurler. Ernie Schaffer, with
a well-balanced team and a 10 to 1
victory over Jack Ryan's Commerce
team.
The War Riskers displayed a num
ber of Navy Yard leaguers, overlooked
by the honorable Jack Crook, who
could use but twenty for his club.
With Schaffer doing the southpaw

merce nine was vanquished. The en
casement was not without its thrills
and there was some goo'd baseball

was easily discernible among the
tpectators and he appeared to enjoy
the same until about dinner time
when he felt the call of the groaning
mahogany and left for a more satis
fying and essential occupation.
Laechse, the mastodonlc hurler of
the Commerce nine, got off to a bad
start. His team fielded raggedly
throughout the contest and while he
was touched up for eight hits he
fanned eleven batters, which is the
series' mark so far.
The bulk of the credit for the War
Risk win goes to Ernie Schaffer, who
allowed the Commerce lads but four
hts. Schaffer fielded his position
faultlessly and in a manner to elicit
the commendation of Boss Griffith.

for youngsters who may be big
leaguers after the war Is over.
Schaffer was good all the way The
Commerce lads did many things with
tlie ball which accounts for the fact
that the War Riskers got in ahead of
the procession, and appear to have a
chance to make the Cappubs and
Marines step out for a victor.
avy Yard, 3 1 Rrx A. C 1.
The Union Lague Park battle be
tween the Navy Yard team and the
Rex Athletic Club proved to be one
of those regular contests. The Navy
Yarders won by 3 to 1. but the fact
remains that the Southeast men had

BOSTON ROOTERS AWAKE
AS TICKETS GO ON SALE
- BOSTON, Sept. 5. Tickets for the fourth world's series game, to be
played at Fenway Park, went on sale today. Indications showed that in
terest is picking up among the. Hub fans and, with any kind of .decent
weather, there should be an outpouring of the' rooters to welcome Ed
Barrow's champions home, no matter how the big series stands. The
general belief here is that the Red Sox .should take at least one, of the.
three games in Chicago and then clean up here.
r-
The bold-up by the Red Sox play
ers of President Harry Frazee on the
eve of their Journey to Chicago has
left a. bad taste In the mouths of the
fans here, and If the Cubs win. it is
quite to be 'expected that the fans
will "ride" Barrow's players not a
little. '

Bill, Georgetown will be right In front
with varsity sports again.'
By LOUIS A. DOUGHER
Harry Frazee, the Boston baseball magnate, has paid well for the
little experience he has obtained on the diamond. With him it has been
a case of pay, pay, pay from the beginning down to the very end, and the
complete, unexpurgated story of his life as a big league mogul would make
most interesting reading for all those fans who have followed professional
baseball only to sicken of it in its wr.ning days.
"-'razee paid a fancy price in the
first place for an American League
franchise He discovered that back
ing a ball club in Ban Johnson's cir
cuit was no idle pleasure, with cheers
at the end of each chapter. He dis
covered that his temperamental ath
letes had all the whims of stage stars,
with more in addition.
Last spring he spent some $50,000
for enough players to make 'his club
a pennant winner. Facing the poor
est of prospects, it took financial
nerve to turn that trick.
Then, In the middle of the 'hort
ened campaign. Krazce had to pay
bonuses to three of his necessary
athletes. That was tough enough,
for the athletes practically knocked
him down and took tho money away
from him. l'ut, to rub ft in, the
whole confounded team held him up
for two weeks' salary, threatening
to refuse to play the 1918 world's se
ries unless their demands-were satis
fled. Yes, Krazee has learned much In a
brief time, and the betting is that
the American League wUI have to
find a new backer for Its Boston club
if the league ever begins to do busi
ness again.
Cox ! Optimistic.
Charles It. Cox, graduate manager
of athletics at Giorgctown Unlvomlty,
has returned from his vacation filled
with optimism, even if the Blue and
Gray institution has suspended regularly-organized
varsity football for the
duration of the war.
Georgetown, with many other col
leges all over the country, will have
students assigned to It by the oovern
ment this jear." rais Cox." While all
our plans arc extremely vague, never
theless. It seems a practical certainty
that athletics will be boomed by the
Governmental authorities.
Of course, the peculiar character
istics of varsity competition may be
absent, but It Is quite likely that we'll
have a lot of football, basketball, and
track sports at the Hilltop this win
ter. If things go as I expect them to
do, Georgetown should have a busy
sport season, mertlng all the service
teams from. the nearby camps,
Baker la Throngh.

J. Franklin Baker, of Trappe. Md..

baseball forever. And with him passes

fans. His home runs broke the heart

quard in at least two seilcs for th-'
world's title.
Baker is a prosperous farmer. He
has most essential work ihead of him
uhile the fuss goes on overseas. And,
being rather set In his Ideas, Baker Is
not thought to be "kidding" when hi
announces his retirement from base
ball. waOtodMrdth
Lee Fohl is of the opinion that
had It not been for the war Babe
Ruth would have broken the home
run record this year.
"If the baseballs we have used
had been up to'the stanlard -f vtlur
years," says Fohl, "Bala Mirely
would have turned the tricx, but the
balls were of too poor a iUtlty this
reason, being knocked out ot shape
quickly and losing their lif:."

MORAN BACKS CUBS
CHICAGO. Sept- 5. One " thing
that has done a lot to maintain the
morale of the Cubs supporters Is the
report that Pat Moran, manager of
the Phillies, has risked $500 at even
money on the Bruins. Moran has a
reputation as an exceedingly cautious
man In handling his coin and If he
feels $300 worth of Cubs sentiment
stirring In his system, the more reck

CUBS HAVE GRIFFS
The Chicago Cubs, contending -for
the world's title against the Boston
Red Sox. have three former Grift
men in "Tiny" Vaughn, the crack
southpaw hurler: Charlie Pick, at
second base, and Turney Barber, the
extra outfielder.
Vauehn was a flat failure here and
was sent to Kansas City in the deal
for Bert Gallia. The Cubs took him
from Kansas City.
Pick was turned loose and had a
year with the Mackmen before going
to San Francisco. When the Coast
league exploded this summer, the
Cubs grabbed Pick.
Barber was with the Griffmen for
two years, but was never given much
of a trial.
