For one, Jim Shaw is boui style. It has taken the big Pittsbur but with warm weather and regu! many victories between now and another, Harry Courtney will proba ney of last September, when he I like a major leaguer. With Joe J to the lineup, there is no reason Ic the immediate prospects of the /ca The Griffs should be ale to take President Griffith has come to the conclusion that he needs now players. Ile has already obtained a couple who are likely to receive their trials dur Ing the trip opening at Cleveland Tuesday. Acosta. the Cuban pitcher. is practically certain to be used in turn, once the Griffs begin measuring otheir strength with the Western 1clubs. While doing the Best possible this season. Prexy Griffith will have his eyes turned toward the 1921 cam paign and so will very likely have numerous players joining the team from .time to time for trials. Whether these .1ads will get into the regular lineup depends upon their showing in the -daily battIng and fielding drills, but the Washington amagnate will not let any grass grow before trying them out. START WITH TWO GAMES Because Cleveland was inundated by a series of heavy thunder storms In June while the Griffs were there, a doubleheader with the Indians opens this second swing of the Griff men through the West. Two games were postponed and, rather than drag them through the series scheduled to begin August 1. Speaker and Griffith have decided to play them off next Tuesday. The Griffmen will depart tonight at 7.10 and rest in Cleveland tomor )row before tackling the Indians twice on Tuesday. The gang will get away by boat for Detroit Tuesday night. On Thursday they will have a double header at Navin Field. Later, on reaching Chicago, they have another doubleheader, thus making a total of. twenty games to be played is the West on this coming second trip. It Is not without sincere backers that the Griffs start away from home. There are many loyal roters here who will follow their career through the newspapers, pulling for them to come home much closer to the contenders than they are now. One of these dyed-in-the-wool bugs is Wiliam J. Sainter, of The Soldiers' Home. Reading in this column the other day a chiding lecture to certain weak-kneed rooters to ape the ex ample being shown %y Pat Gharrity, Sainter seized his pen with a mighty grip and sent the following letter to Secretary Eynon: A REAL FAN'S LETTER. "My Dear Mr. Eynon: "Referring to Mr. Dougher's article in The Times of last evening, which I presume you have read, I can assure you that there is at least one fan who is doing that very thing that Mr. D. advocates, and also, judging from the faces that I see around me nearly every day at the park, there are many others who do not desert the club when it is experiencing hard luck with its players. "It is a real delight to watch the efforts of Gharrity, Milan, Rice. Shanks, Harris, and lately our old friend, George McBride, to keep the team in the first division. "Beginning with the exhibition game wtih the Cincinnati Reds, and including yesterday's game, I have thus far been present at forty games this season. I saw twelve of the fif teen games recently played with Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit, and which resulted so disastrously for the *home team, but that has not caused me to fail to show up at the park .iust as often' as I am able to get there. - HE HAS FAITH. "I have faith to believe that, when the season ends, our team will not be found in the second division, and though the team has not done so weln as it~ promised to do earlier in the season, I wras never among those who expected it to go out and have the pennant cInched before the season was half over. "Considering the material, the set backs from injuries, and the failures of some of the pitchers to come through. I feel that we are fortunate in having a team in fourth place to day. 1 hiope Mr. (i. may succeed in obtaining a few who will take a real interest in their work as do those I name above. I am, "Very trifly yours. "WIL4IAM .1. SAINTER." One cannopt read this short letter without realizing that its writer is net a quitter. He recognizes condi tions, praises those who continue to do theilr best, and expresses his con fident hope In the future. Undoubt edly, too, Wamington. is filled with fans of the satne type, May'be it in the presence of such fans at the park that inspires the hard-working ath letes to do their beat lb the face of discouraging bowls from the small group of ever-ready to belittle them in their defeat and maintaIn a grave yard silence when they win.

There's no telling which team would have won in nine frames, but the home boys were battling on even terms for the honors. With the storm engulfing the ath letes in that fifth frame, Jimmy Aus tin staged a play perhaps neVer seen before in a major league park. Det ter than anything. else, it showed that the veteran was thinking of the task in hand irrespective of the con ditions surrounding the play. Dick Torres put up a weak pop fly -toward first base. The wind and rain carried the ball back until it fell pear the path between the rubber and the plate. Shiser and Gedeon DONOVAN TO MEET RIVAL FOR RONORS Despite Wound Over Eye, Wash ington Flyweight Tackles Little Jeff Tuesday. Despite a severe cut over one eye, received while sparring in his training quarters with Johnny Vitanza, the Walter Reed bearcat, Patsy Donovan will positively be ready to climb through the ropes Tuesday night and tackle Little Jeff, of- Baltimore, for the Southern bantamweight champion ship. They are to travel ten rounds -to a decision, weighing in at 110 pounds ringside. Donovan was boxing with Vitanza the other night and, as the Walter Reed lad came out of the corner, he butted Patsy over the eye, making a deep gash In the eyebrow. Several stitches were taken in the wound and it is healing rapidly. Efforts were made by Promoter Sullivan to obtain a postponement of the bout for a week, but Sammy Harris, manager of Little Jeff, de clined to agree. He insisted on taking Donovan's forfeit unless the latter appeared ready for the contest. "Well, Ill beat him anyway." grin ned. Patsy, when he found that he would have to box Tueeday. "Just for that Little Jeff'1I get mnore than he expects. I'll try my beat to end It before my eye begins bothering me." Donovan has completed his hardest training and Frankie Mann, his man ager, reported today that the little fellow would be in fine physical con dition for the contest. Little Jeff, who is kept in the ring on an average of once in every ten days, ls also in good shape, according to reports from Raltimore. He thinks he will stop D)onovan and many ring fans are banking on him to do that thing. There will be but one ten-round bout on the coming card, but five six-round battles are to complete the evening's entertainment. Charlie Baum meets F'rankie 4'olling, Phil Polan faces John L. Smith, the Greek champion of Washington; Ruddy Sul livan tackles Billy Reagan, Johnny Vitanma and Johnny Maggla will clash, and Jimmy Donovan and YounA Remzey will be seen in action. lHOME RUNS POURING IN TO VEX SCOREKEEPERS American League scorekeeper.stae mighty busy these day, taking tabs on home runs. Up to last Trhursday just exactly 1017 circuit drives were made by Ban Jlohnson's sluggers. Thirty-three of them were made by one man alone, Ilabe Ruth. of the New York Yankees. Out of these 197 homers, the Yan kees have made 72, no mean feat for a ball club. S.TOPPED IN THIRD.

C. players tackle the )t So Dat SOVER j OVy E R =HER - Where Griffman Will Be On .Road The Washington club, leaving tonight on its second trip through the west, is facing the following schedule: At Cleveland, July 27 (double header). At Detroit, July 28, 29, 30, 31. At Cleveland, Aug. 1, 2, 3, 4. At St. Louis, Aug. 5, 6, 7, 8. At Chicago, Aug. 9, 10, 11, 12. It is probable that an exhibition breaking the long trip home from game will be pityed on Aug. 13, Chicago. were both charging in for the ball. but neither got it. Torres was on his way. thinking to get all he could on the apparent bingle. UP COMES AUSTIN. With the ball dropping safely and Torres turning first base, up came Austin. lie scooped the pill out of the mud and dashed madly for first base. Torres, seeing the danger of his position, stopped and headed back for the first bug. Austin, either slipping or diving, took a head, r in the mud and tagged the Cuban for the second death in what might easily rank as the most spectacular putout staged in many a year. Thunder rolled in the heavens. Lightning tore jagged gashes in the e'Iouds. Heavy rain was pouring down upon the field. And there was that wonderful old man, Jimmy Austin, showing the youngsters on the field why he has been in major league baseball for 10, these many years. Fans witnessing that great play may well be excused for harking back to it whenever the conversation turns upon wonderful diamond performances. A moment later came another start ling bit, this time by ('eorge Sister. Courtney raisaed another weak fly in the general direction of the right field pavilion, but the high wind held it back and it began dropping close to the (;riffs' dugout. Sisler galloped through the mud and, moving in circles, camped be neath that falling ball. So treacher ous was the wind, however, that when the Brownie caught the ball he was standing on one foot and bend ing so far back that he was almost falling. Boys, that was great stuff, great stuff! PITCHERS IN DUEL. Dixie Davis and Harry Courtney. from the very beginning, staged a pitching duel. With pleasant weather that contest should have been a pip pin. As it was, those five frames saw but three hits apiece'and one run for each side. In the third, Torres walked, Court ney sacrificed and Shanks singled to right, bringing the Cuban across. Joe Gedeon started the fourth with a resounding wallop to venter for three bases. Sisler almost knocked (ourtney off his feet. but perished at first base when the southpaw re trieved the ball and shot it to Torres. Jacobson poled a long fly to Milan and in scampered Gedeon, tying the score and.saving his team from a de feat in five frames, as no more runs were made. While Austin contributed the most spectacular fielding play of the brief contest. Sam Rice was also there with the fine stuff inIthat fifth. Darkness had settled down upon the field until It was almost impossible to see the ball from the stands. It was then that Hank Severeid whaled the ball out between Rive and Milan. Just how Rice ever got his eye upon that ball he alone can tell. And maybe he can't, either. Anyway, he was.off with the sound of the bat, racing at top speed toward left field. Just as the ball seemed to be get ting away from him he stuck up his hand and Severeid stopped running. Sam had done the well nigh impossi ble. As Gerber was on first base and a double or a triple meant a St. Louis victory, Sam's catch really saved his team from being whipped. AND THEN IT POURED. When the game startgd heavy clouds were coming up from the rorthawest. Bill KImball, one of Frank Saffel's educated staff of wire pound crs, whispered to us that three in nIngs would be the limit. He missed it by two margins. but the first drops of rain came in the last of the third, so give Bill credit, lie knows some thing about weather. Night seemed at hand when the fifth frame began. The clouds, big fat. black fellers, chaperoned by light gray ones, spelling wind, were rush ing along. Now and then somebody moved a trunk up above, or flashing forks ripped the skies. And through it all Bill Dlneen kept those athletes hustling down there on the field. The real storm broke in the final half of the fifth, and, with Sisler's great catch, the players rushed' for their dressing rooms and the poor fish *ln the stands began finding their native element. A woman fainted and Eddie Eynon, oblIging soul, took a bath rushIng around to find a saw bones. For npwards of half an hour the storm raged. Blevo Brown fell down on his job of caring for the curtains. and they swung and rIpped away from their moorings before the gale that carried gusts of rain clear across the stand. The boys with the HeIrnryford stilts suare did suffer. Two-dollar straws crumpled and -passed away. To make matters worse, a guy dlroppedl a half pint just as it was about to bec'ome of some use. This is a tough world, a tough world. And that's nll there Is to be said ahout things at the hallyard Tester day. PLAY TWO GAMES. flex A.

GALVESTON FANS CANNOT WAIT FOR SUNDAY PAPERS NEW YORK, July 25.- Interest in what the Yankees and IndIans were doing at the Polo Grounds yesterday extended far beyond the confines of Maphattan Island. Fans of Galveston, Tex., who refuse to wait for the Sunday morning pa per. to find out about Babe Ituth's home runs, followed the game from start to finish with no break In de tails. Every ball or strike, every hit or foul was flashed to operator., of a bulletin board In I alveston. and the fans who gathered roundl knew of every detail befor. the next ball was pItched at the Polo Grounds. Not a Sunday game is played by the Yanke'es at the Polo Grounds without either A tlanta or I alveston being on the wire for details, and usually both cities get them. Oceea slonally some other cIty in the Soothi gets in on the wire, but the two named above are steady subscribers.

KELLY ROWS CRACKS. Kelly will be up against the cracks af the world in the% Olympics. and there are those who say he will win easily. The Navy crew, which paid a glow ing tribute to Richard Glendon, its coach, outdistanced both the Duluth and ?yracuse crews. The Navy showed open water over Syracuse. which is a bad beating. It will be the Navy crew which goes over to represent Uncle Sam in the Olympic eight event. The Anna polls midshipmen showed in no un certain way that they are fully en titled to refrenent this country. The race yesterday for senior eights was rowed over a course flattened by rains which interfered with earlier events. but which was still lined by thousands of boats and thousands of persons ashore who were attracted by the struggle for triple honors.

According to what account have been recorded regarding these co1 legiate duels, the Britons have been more successful in the long run. The history of the meets dates back as farI as 1894. On July 6 of that year Ox-| ford beat Yale's team at Kensington by the margin of 5% events to 3%. V. O. Hickok, of Yale. won two of the three and fraction thereof events of the Bulldogs. His victories were in the hammer throw and shot-putting events. L. B. Sheldon, one of Yales bet all-around athletes of those days. took the running broad jump and was second in the high jump.
