DOUGHER Indians Are '20 Favorites The Cleveland Indians are the favorites everywhere to win the 1920 American League championship. Tris Speaker's veteran team has ob tained lefthanded pitching, something they lacked in 1919, and this is considered to have rounded out a club that looked better than the Chi cago White Sox during the last two months of the season last year. Though it doesn't really make much difference, and our guess is only as good as yours, our pick for the probable finish in the American League is as follows?First, Cleveland; second, Detroit; third, New York or Chicago; fourth, Chicago or New York, fifth, Washington or St. Louis; sixth, St. Louis or Washington; seventh, Boston or Philadel phia; eighth, Philadelphia or Boston. We would say that the Yankees have a slight edge over the White Sox at this writing, with the same true of the Griffmen over the Browns and the Rod Sox over the Mackmen. Though we Deiieve tnai ine urm men are likely to finish in fifth place, they hay prove the real surprise of the campaign by ups<*tlng much of the preseason dope and hiking over the line much higher. Looking at Griff's outfield, they appear a capable trio of heady, fast veterans, all three fine base runners, at least .-00 hitters asd ^clean field ers. If Groff were as sure of his in field as he must be of his gardeners, be might rest easier nights. With but one veteran inflelder. Judge, at first, the Inner quartet will be a puzzle until shaken down by actual experience. Harris, O'Neill, and Shannon or Ellerbe, however, shape up right now distinctly better than their predecessors of a year ago. Pitching Should Be Fair. While Walter Johnson is sure to be another wizard on the bill, the re mainder of the squad is not in his class, but the pitching as a whole should be fair enough. If the new infield can plug up those yawning gaps seen is 1910, the pitching staff will benefit considerably. With Gharrlty and Picinich to do the brunt of the work behind the plate, Iticardo Torres, the Cuban catcher, will do bullpen duty most of the summer, but the staff as a whole is good enough for most purposes. Without going Into treacherous mathematics, we would say that the Washington club Is generally strong er now than it l^s been in four years, with Its chances for causing trouble equally Improved. L<uck always plays a prominent part In a tnajur league race. It stole a. pennant from Washington In 191'.!, an Injury to Morgan at the critical moment permitting the Red Sox to Kr^b the gonfalon. If Griff has the luck with him this year, who knows but what his team may tear up the dope and scatter It to the four winds. At the same time, at this writing the Griffmen shape up more as a likely fifth or sixth place club. Indiana Well-Rounded. The Indians have quite the best ball club on paper there is to be seen In either league. Johnston, WambsRanss, Chapman, and Gardner former a fine Infield, with good hitters and fielders. Graney, Speaker. Wood and Smith rank high as outfielders, both at bat and In the field. Utility men exist for all positions. Steve O'Neill chases Kay Schnlk for the honors of leading the league as a catcher. Nunamaker and Thomas, fair receivers and hard hitters, are on hand in caso Steve Is ill or injured. Speaker faces the coming cam paign with Covaleskle, Myers, Bagby, Caldwell, Uhle and Morton, right banders, and Boehllng, Nlehaus, Mur chlson, and-Petty, southpaws. The Indians should have at least four of this bunch always In shape for work on the hill, and If a quartet Is able to deliver the goods, the Indians will just about win the banner. While the Indians are dangerously ?onfldent, they are not a bit more so tfYfrLOANSl V HORNING DIAMONDS, WATCHES. JEWELRY Sooth End of Highway Bridy t than the Detroit Tigers. Jennings' team is offensively the most power ful since Connie Mack's famous 1914 aggregation. Jack Coombs' job will be to have the pitchers at all time ready. If he Is successful, the Tigers should give the Indians a merry light all down the line. The Yankees have 'fine pitchers, fair fielders in the inlield and several hard hitters, notably the league's greatest slugger, Babe Ruth, but in ternal dissensions are certain to crop up to bother Miller Huggins. Lack of speed may prevent the Yankees from finishing ahead of the White Sox, but other tli ngs eaual they should land at least as high as they did last year. The champions start with a pitch ing handicap, with worries over salary disputes, a year more on the shoulders of several neces"ary veter ans and, probably, minus Gandil and Risberg. The White Sox are about ready to be ripped apart and build up again. Ilrownlea Are Peaky. The Griffs should receive most of their troubles from those pesky St. Liouis Brownies. The Mound City bunch should make a good flght for aft least half the season, but them at least half the season, but then effect and, also, some of the spring hitters will begin waving instead of singling. Luck, and luck only, should decide whether Boston or Philadelphia ends in the cellar. The Red Sox are weakest in years and, worse, lack the spirit that makes a winner. Few believe the team will even make trouble at the start. Connie Mack has gathered a good ly collections of youngsters, mingling with them a few veterans such as Strunk, Burns, 1'erry and Billy Walk er. It is unlikely that the shrewd Connie would pick a higher place for his outfit than seventh. There'll bo a sizzling Presidential campaign on this summer, but the outlook is for another banner base ball season, the interest everywhere save in Boston and Philadelphia being at a whito heat. BOSTON BOOKIES TURN ATTENTION TO GOLFERS BOSTON, April G.?The small army of local "bookies" who heretofore have centered their efforts on horse liacing have now entered the field of golf, much to the resentment of followers of the game. They are making up sheets on the big tournaments being played In the South. In the recent tournament at Bellealre, Fla., for the West Coast championship, they quoted Walter llagen at 0 to 1 for first place, 2 to 1 for second, and even money for third, the same quotations applying to Alex Smith, the Bellealre professional. HARPER IS WILD. Moxle Harper, former Qrlffman, was wild as a hawk In his trial Sat urday against the Giants. In six in nings he gave six hits, walked five and had two wild pitches. MAYS MUST REST. Carl Mays, the Yankee pitcher, has sprung a charley-horse and will be unable to pitch for several days. 1 Jack "Twin" Sullivan Still In Ring All records for long: service in the ring have been broken by Jack (Twin) Sullivan, who still is fighting in Buffalo clubs.

THIN LITTLE GEORGES MAKES STIFF OPPOSITION FOR STURDIER SALMON By JACK VEIOCK. The sporting element of Maisons-Lafitte, who idolized Kid Salmon, was prepared to witness something akin to a funeral the night Georges Carpentier, the little more than a boy, vas introduced as Salmon's op ponent. What chance had this pale wisp of a lad with the sturdy little bull dog that was Salmon? It appeared that a crime was about to be com mitted, and just before the timekeeper called the principals together for the first round wagers were offered at the ringside favoring Salmon at twenty to one. There was something patnetic about Carpentler as he stood there in the almost complete nakedness of boxing attire, yet n6t a nerve twitched in his trim, young body, and his large blue eyes bore the fire of conquest and the light of confidence. In con trast to Carpentler the then great Salmon wan lumpy with muscles, and. though small of stature, was built on Herculean lines. Carpentler was more of the youthful Apollo. But Carpentier's sang-froid made an im pression. Even Salmon glanced at this lamb that had been brought In for slaughter with something like spell-bound admiration, for Georges was as cool as Ice. Before the first round ended the young challenger from the North had convinced the crowd that he was not only a super-youth of the ring but a crafty, experienced boxer a.s well. As round after wore on the slim Car pentler set a pace that astonished the spectators. Early In the battle he floored his rugged opponent, and when they came up for the tenth round he was apparently fresh and strong. This increased the admira tion of the crowd, foi1 a boxer of such tender years with the power to as similate as well as deal out punish ment was something of an innovation. Meld n ^ Ide Leal. At the close of the twelfth round, with Carpentler enjoying a wide l<;id on points and still going strong, the odds switched in his favor. Then came the thirteenth, and shortly after the boxers had left their cor ners Carpentler went down in a heap and the Salmon contingent howled in exultation. But the spectators had not seen the foul blow that sent young Georges to the canvas. , "Snowy" Lawrence, who managed Salmon, was the referee. He saw the foul Mow and promptly disqualified his own champion, declaring Carpen tler the winner. Georges was pros trate on the floor. He knew nothing of what was going on about him, and it wa.R some time after he had been carried to his dressing room by Des camps before he was himself again. Thus Carpentler won the bantam weight championship of Krancc on a foul from one of the greatest box ers of the day. The flukiness of his victory, however, did not suit Georges. Most boxers would have been willing to rest and realize on the title so won. But not this stripling. Through Descamps he sought and obtained another match with Salmon, and some six weeks later they met again under practical ly the same conditions. The records credit Carpentler with a knockout victory over Salmon In tho eighteenth round. But one Eng lish authority who claims to have witnessed both bouts recorded that Carpentier's second tossed a sponge Into the ring and that he. was car ried away from the ringside fighting like a young tiger with tears stream ing down his face after having been knocked through the ropes. But that as It may, Carpentler continued on his successful career In the ring, while Salmon faded from the fl-stlc limelight. Mma Hardly a Flyweight. It is well to state here that when Carpentler won from Salmon In thirteen rounds he was hardly n good flyweight, yet he had come Into the bantamweight championship of hi? country at an ago when most boys aro shooting marbles. At the age of fifteen he began to take on more flesh. His athletic mode of living kept the fat away and ho was llthu and hard as n<ails, so to speak, yet showed none of the bulging miiH>'.los that are so common among gymnas ium-trained men. Carpentier's next Important victor ies were scored against I/Cgrand, whom he defeated In six rounds when they first met and later outpointed a second-time In a twenty.round con test He was now beginning to make money. Hesramps' promises to his parents were beginning to be realised and young Georges was In demand. In 1009 the young l^nslnn's name was known throughout 1'ranca. 1U was considered a sort of super-mar vel. lie knocked out a boxer named I^&mpin on two occasions, outpointed L<egrand for a. third time in a flftesn round bout, and won decisions from Achalme, Cheveau, Rclinger and Ledoux. But he also met a tartar that year. France had a remarkably clever boxer at the time by the name of Gloria. This 1-ad, with Salmon retired from the ring, was one of the best small men in France, and eventually he was matched with Carpentler. The bout was scheduled for ten rounds, and at that Vme there was not a lad living of Carpentier's age who could have taught him anything about boxing, for ho was now a highly-polished performer. Gtoria Pats Him Away. Despite Gloria's cleverness Carpen tler went around him like a cooper around a barrel. He breezed through the first five rounds and piled up a handsome lead on points; but it is not always the cleverest nor the best man who wins. Once every so often an inferior boxer slips over a punch that compels his opponent to listen to the fatal count of ten. A hard right smash to the pit of the stomach upset the flashy boy from L,ens in the sixth round. Down he went to one knee, making ?. frantic effort to rise again, his face wreathed In pain. But his wind was gone, com pletely, and while nursing his tor tured stomach with one gloved band he heard the referee count ten. This was the first real knockout ever scored against the clever Car pentier. And since that time no boxer has knocked him out. "Once bit, twice shy" is an adage that applies to the French idol in a fistic way, and since Gloria's glpved hand sunk into the pit of his stomach back In 1909 no boxer has been able to punish him in that way. Of course, Georges has known defeat since Oloria knocked him out, but only on points. His crushing defeat by Gloria only sre:ved to spur him on to do greater things ii* the ring. Toward the close ? of the same year he became a legiti mate bantamweight and continued his professional carertr with Descamps guiding him more carefully than ever before, and Georges constantly learn ing more and more about his choscn profession. Thought a Bad Match. His match with'Ledoux, incidental ly, was considered a bad match by many of his admirers. The sturdy Ledoux, who holds the Kuropean ban tamweight championship at the pres ent time, was attracting much atten tion In 1009 by virtue of the fact that he was considered a terrific hitter, kedoux was called the young "cy clone." He had started his career as a professional by knocking out his first seventeen opponents In a few rounds. Gut Georges only smiled dowtt the protests of his friends, and Descamps remained unperturbed. At the end of fifteen rounds with I^doux there was little or no tracee In Carpentier's appearance to indicate that he had traveled that distance with a sturdier and harder hitting op ponent. Dedoux, on the other hand, was carrying the bruises left by sharply propelled gloves. Carpentler met one worthy oppon ent while he remained In the bantam weight class In the person of l'aul Til, whom ho defeated in a ten round bout and later met over the twenty round distance, winning a draw. Damn Nature was responsible for the fact that he met Dedoux but once. She gave film flesh and muscle al most dally In her haste to build him up, and when 1909 faded out ho found that the time had come for him to say farewell to the bantairfwelght division forever. MrniMil Was Tough. As a featherweight he continued to box with Increasing success, though he lost a decision now and then to boxers who outweighed him. The third painful reverse suffered by Car pentler came In 1910. His first bout I that year was won on a foul in seven I rounds from Young Warner. Liter Here It Is Clarence from Clarendon re marks: "Many a man has sustained a fractured repu tation by slipping up on the truth." he defeated George Gaillard In ten round*, knocked out Wallle Plckard, and acored hi* third knockout vic tory over Lampln, who wa? growing up with him. He went back to Brus sels after defeating Lampln and lost a decision to Buck Shine, after which he was matched with Young Snow ball, a tough English boxer, for a bout at the Paris Wonderland. Descamps was warned that Young Snowball was too tough and too heavy for Georges, but he only smiled, as usual. Georges faced Snowball in four of the hottest rounds he has aver boxed. He took a severe beating, and at the end of the fourth session Descamps tossed in the sponge. During the remainder of that year Carpentler engaged in eight bouts and had the satisfaction of knocking out Young Warner, who had fouled him in the seventh round of their first meeting. His most notable bouts In the lightweight division, however, all came iu 1911, for he was growing faster than ever. (To Be Continued.) McGRAW AND STONEHAM WILL SPLIT NEXT YEAR Giants' Veteran Manager Due to Leave New York, Following Quarrels. NEW YORK, April 5.?John J.
