DOUGHER. Tlie Chicago White Sox, world's champions of 1917, have fought their way back into first place and there is every reason to believe that Kid Gleason's club will remain in the go ing down to the very end of the cam paign. The New York Yankees, and possibly the Cleveland Indians, will be expected to dispute the champion ship pretensions of the Windy City clan. On their first swing: through the East. the "White Sox had but two 'pitchers capable of steady work, Ed die Clcotte, and Claud Williams. "Red" Paber has'worked hlmsejf into good form on the hill. "Kerr and Shellen iback have pitched some fair games, 'and both Cicotte and Williams, who .bore the brunt of the hard work in the East, were able to obtain a much Jneeded rest. - Hitters Benin to Hit. Then, adding to the cup of joy for Gleason," some of his hitters began to ,hlt again. Joe Jackson has climbed up to second place. His mark of .354 today gives him runner-up honors to Roger Peckinpaugh. who Is leading the league with .376. Chick Gandil began poking out hits in pinches, and so did Eddie Collins, Nemo Leibojd and Buck Weaver. The natural result is that today the Chi- j cago White Sox are in good condition . Jo make a winning fight for the flag. ' Unless the Yankees win the pen- Tiant the West will obtain the world's series plum, for the White Sox and Indians are the only other clubs with chances to cop. .The Red Sox have filvvered badly. Washington and Philadelphia are second division ball clubs.. West Is Stronger. The West is much the Etronger half of the American League. In twelve games played in the last two days, just two have been won by , Eastern clubs, the Grlffmen and Yankees each winning one yesterday. The Indians, after looking very bad, came to life against the Browns. snd arc now v. haling the daylights out of the Yankees. First they broke 3ob Shawkey's winning streak, stopping him with ten straight vic tories, lesterday Roger Peckin- "Red's" Hot Answer Nailed Him "Red" McAuliffe, ' for years announcer at both big league parks in St. Louis, has been off the job a couple of years, helping to settle the disagree ment between the allies and the Kaiser. One day at tho Cardinals' park, McAuliffe anr.uunccd, "Jn gersol! is now pitching." A fan yelled, "Who?" Whereupon Red repeated the name. Once more came back the same "Who?" "Red" is quick tempered and very obliging, but hates to be ridiculed. So instead of re peating the name 'lie stopped the fan by shouting through the megaphone: "Same name as that dollar watch of yours." Penny Ante LADIES mGBT By Jean Knott paugh went without a safe hit for the first time -In thirty years. To make it worse, Roger didn't get a blow In two games at Cleveland yes terday. The Grlffmen will land 'in Cleveland tomorrow for a four-day stop. One double header is booked for this series, making five games in all with the Indians. Right now the Griffs are going smoothly enough. They are not due back here again until July 24. They must visit every city 1 nthe West and, if they merely break even on the trip, they will be doing well enough, though not bettering their standing any. Washington fans figure that fifth place will be about all the Grlffmen can expect this year. Their poor start has pretty nearly left them at the post. It is always more difficult to climb after July than before it. Today'the Griffs are exactly fifteen games behind the White Sox, who are leading. Only a wonderful burst of winning, with oodles of luck, can close that gap. & """ VmMVP HA HAl 1 BET "THAT EDDIE.

TURNER THINKS HE GOT RAW DEAL IN RELEASE By ED BANG. CLEVELAND, July 11. Tuck Turner has a grievance. You'll re call the night of July 3 that Turner had been given his unconditional release by the Cleveland club. He was asked to go to Milwaukee for the remainder of the season at the same salary he was receiving from Cleveland, President James C. Dunn agreeing to guarantee his .pay. Turner demurred simply because he thought he is still Xt major league caliber and that he had it coming from the Cleveland club to be carried throughout the remainder of the season. Terry claims that while he was given his ten days' notice of uncon ditional release last fall, this was re called by the Cleveland club when the Government took professional base ball out of the non-essential class and restored it to its former standing. Turner insists that had this release "stood" instead of being recalled, he would have been able to dispose of SEEKS MORE LAURELS. TORONTO, July 11.

Terry goes back a long way in gathering evidence to con Nince himself of Fohl's dislike. And why the. Indians' pilot has been op posed to him is more than Teny can underMand. He goes away back to the time a Turner day was held, a day on which Terry was to receive some sort of a gift, but which was never forthcom ing Turner's teammates uer to make htm a present, but he say.s Man ager Kohl told him that three or four of them had talked it over and de cided not to gt him anything.
