LOOKI Indians Have No matter how you Agure it, bulge in this wonderful, sissling rac of 1920. It will require almost a Yankees or the Chicago White Sox march across the line in front of thl the Indians had played 100 games. for a winning percentage of .670. before ringing down the curtain. A games are to be played at home, w In the betting. If the Indians win games, or 36 contests, their total 108. Get this 108 Axed in your doe Take the Yanks first. They had but 50 games remaining to be played an Wednesday. To tie the Indiana at 103 victories for the season. Miller Muggins' team will have to win 39 ut their remaining games, or maintain an average of .700 for the rest of the year. The White Sox, on the same day. had 53 games remaining to be played. With the Indians maintain ing their present speed of .607. Gleason's gang must win 41 of these 53 games. averaging .700 from now until October. But, for the sake of the argument, suppose the Indians slump a bit and fall back to a .600 gait. That would give them about 100 victories for their season's totsl. To catch them the Yanks would have to win 35 out of their 50 remaining, or set a .700 lace. Few believe they can do it. TOUGH FOR SOX, TOO. With the Indians falling back to a .600 gait from now on, to tie them the White Sox would have to win 38 out of their 53 games, or set a pace of .717. Even with their many home games, few believe the Box cap able of doing this stunt. . Imagine a whole flock of accidents overtaking the Indians and their fail ure to win but half of those 54 'games. That would mean a total of 94 for the season. To catch them, the Yankees would have to win 29 out of their 50. which is hardly pos sible. The odds are very much against any cracking of the Indians "n that they win but half of their remaining clashes. It is possible for the Indians to lose twe pennant, but the probabil ities are the other way. After show ing the way practically for the en tire season to date, the Indians should be able to continue to the very end. They were nosed out for just one day by the Yankees. Back they came and they've. stayed back. If you are figuring on seeing any of the series, make your hotel ar rangements now for Cleveland. THEY LACK THE "PEP." As for the Cleveland players, they seem to lack the "pep" usually asso elated with a pennant winner. Yet nobody ever accused Connie Mack's murderous maulers of 1911 to 1911 of exhibiting much ambition on the field. The Indians Ore lacking in celor. Though leading all the batsmen in the major leagues, Trim Speaker has no color such as Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb show. He is reliable and, in the field, oftimes brilliant, but it is doubtful if many fans go to the parks to see him play ball. Chapman, Gardner and Johnston are excellent infielders, but Buck Weaver. Donie Bush and Joe Judge make better impressions on fans watching them. Steve O'Neill is a marvelous catcher but Ray Schalk attracts the fans. There is a certain deadly efficiency about the Indians that brings vic tories at the expense of popularity. To a certain extent, it is the same old Philadelphia situation over again. So dull was Connie Mac's champion ship team, that he couW not make money, even when winning world's Utles. AS FOR THU GR31FFMBN. As for the Griffmen, their fight in 1920 is for a berth in the first divis ion. Against them they have the St. Louis Brownies, a rather tough cus tomer. The Griffs won't be able to rest on their oars, not for one little minute, or they will see their rivals pass them.. President Griffith admitted to us in Cleveland that he must now pla~n for nextt season, meanwhile doing his best to finish as high as possible in 1020. He haa spent much money. He has conteacted to spend much more. But WALL d Has Et NG 'EM sf r S A. DOU a Fine Bulge the Cleveland Indians have a fine for the American League pennant miracle for either the New York to pass Trio Speaker's gang and other seven clubs. On Wednesday They had won 67 and dropped-S8 They have 54 more games to play bout two-thirds of these remaining hieh gives the team a certain edge two-thirds of their remaining 54 f victories for the season will be ne. no deliverisa will be made on his purchases until the minors have end ed their labors for the year. which is around the middle of September. 'Risking stirring risibilities. one Wright say that the outlook for Wash ington in 19;p is good. Griffith has obtained the two leading batsmen in the minors. Frank Brower. of Read ing, and Bing Miller, of Little Rock, though he .will have to fight for the latter. He Is fairly loading up on In fielders and before another year. he will have some ten pitchers to try out at Tampa next spring. But that's'all "next year" stuff. It gets us nothing ':ow. Today the Griffs are limping along without pitching strength and with a line-up that is changed every few days be cause its members are too fragile for fast company. It's a tough world. ,men, a tough world. METROPOLITAN A. C. GE[S BUCK OLIVERI AS COACH Organisation Plans Football, Bowl ing, Track and Tennis as Features. Metropolitan A.

There are others, of course. which are on a par and could furnish as good battles, but the six teams which happen to be hooked up in tomorrow's engage ments look to be the pick of the pile. Dihstrict and Virginia fans are not going to get all the gravy Sunday by any means. Marylanders, just across the District line, are due for a first-class Sunday game, for they will rush in to the aid of the Silver Spring nine, which is tackling the .art Bronkland A.

LOUIS, Aug. I.-The Gril pennant cotender this a, thres wth theirfft plees And stretch Clark Gr1it is ils ngia George Bisler, Babe Ruth. Tri Sa opponents. Grilith is not finding naj But the day will comne when Cobb retire, and that day dos not appar does arrive Grifith expects to a world's Series is concerned. Griffith has the speediest club in< the league today. He has pitchl'ig that is fair. and he is looking for a swatter along the lines of .35e from the right side. Of course. fie wouldn't refuse a second edition of babe Iuth. He appreciates the fact that batting has been the leading strength of a team. Getting it is another question. Jim Shaw pitched good enough to hold fourth place yesterday. but he did not get the batting support. The Griffs picked but -flue hits against lUrban Shocker and starting the ninth Shaw held the Browns to one run on eleven hits. The game closed when Tobin. ievereid and Shocker singled in succession In the ninth. NEEDS A EN'-EBt'STER. The point that is up for argument is that a fence-buster is the need of the Washingtonians. Griffith has developed several youngsters in the last few years. Competing against such philanthrop Ists as Jake Ruppert. Jim Dunn, Charles Comiskey. Griffith has a hard row in front of him. How many play. ers did the Yankees develop? Did the Indians discover Tris Speaker? hard ly. These stars were bought and paid for. Griffith has Nick Altrock and others scouting through the minors. The day of getting youngsters for a few hundred are over. The minor league magnate has raised his pric9 just like the many street car magnates and others. Griffith will pay the price, but the article apparently is not on the market. THREE MORE CONTESTS. Picking two from the Indians, Grif ith sees his club a fair one-one that needs just a bit of polish to sneak around the pennant pole. The possi bility of improving in trades during a season has passed in the American League, owing to the rule that pro hibits trades after July 1. Three more games will be played here, and if the Grins take two they will return to the first division. Southpaw Zachary is set to turn the trick today and he will be opposed by Dixie Davis. Harris served as the middle map twice in taking throws from Rice and cutting off base runners. One perfect shot from center caught Severeld try ing to score from first on Gedeon's drive over Rice's head. Sisler worried Shaw the first three times up. He walked without getting a strike in the first and fourth, sin gled to right in the sixth and was not retired until he skied to Rice in the eighth. CAN'T POOL TOMMY. They have to get up early in the morning to fool Tommy Connolly: Smith, taking Milan's bunt right on the chalk mark in the sixth, shoved 'er over a few inches to foul territory. "Fair" signaled Connolly. and the fans stormed, but Smith laughed. Johnny Tobin found Shaw for three hits, and would have had a fourth but for Jimmy O'Neill leaping yards and yards for a sizzling line smack in the fourth. The drive that won for the Browns almost became a triple play. Shocker's single was a low liner to right. Roth just missed it at lis shoes. Had he reached it he could have caught Tobin. who was on his way to the plate, and it would not have been a tough job to get Severeid, who was close to second. HAD LITTLE CHANCE. Nothing to cry about with yester day's game-outhit. 5 to 14. the Griffs did not have much of a chance after the sixth. Jimmy O'Neill dropped two singles in left with the bases empty. In the second, with first and third occupied and one out, he fouled to Severeid. Some more hit 'em in the wrong spot. Roth singled to left with no one on in the second, in the sixth. with third and second occupied, he rolled to Smith. The visitors had everything but hits when they needed thenm. Their field Ing was perfect. The' Browns turned in two miscues. BLACK BEAUTY fHE MOST WONDERFUL BIKE IN THE WORLD Cearseteed for S fears Seid Diret Free1, Mater te Rider Whiel oes fee Pa, Ist Os.

New York. August 16 to 21, enough have been run off to insure that the Said in this third annual tournament for the Wanamaker prises will be up to the standard. Recently twelve men qualified. in eluding Tom Boyd. who led the ield; Will Macfarlane, Pat Doyle. the ge nial Deal professional; Pat O'Hara, the Irish chamnpion, and his brother Peter. from ithackamaxon: Isaac Mackie and others of prominence.

Then from the West there will be Lawrence Ayton. who recently cam from Scotland. and Charles Mayo, of Edgewater, another "pro' from across the ocean. Jack Hutehison, the Glen View professional, who in 1916 reached the final against Jim Barnes. the tall Coinishman from St. Lotis. failed to qualify. J. Douglas Eidgar, the Canadian open title-holder, now khcated in Atlanta. will represent the outheastern section. along with Harry Hampton, of Virginia; Charles Hoffner, of Philmont, and George Sar gent of Merion. Rumor has it that even If Waiter Hagen, the national open champion, siould care to compete in the P. G. A. event he would not be eligible, as he is no longer a member of that body.

In the old days they used to be out as the second bounce, but /oat the other day an ump called a Task player out en a pill that a ('hlcege Selder snagged un the Aith hop. The ump claimed the crowd was in his eyes, which is a new one, also. The me is generally on the ump's cheat. T HE fattest change has. probably been in the box office, but there has been some nimble algstaton III the position of the clean-up man. IT used to be the unwritten base ball law that the boy with the sock was always number four in the line-up. Ed Lelaahanty. tejoie. Jesse Burkett. Pop Anson. and the other batsmiths always grabbed berth four in the slugging Pullman. If anybody sot on. those birds would knock 'em off. And number four was figured the right spot for the heavy lumber. GIVE Ed Delahanty ten cents' worth of wood and he would step in and knock that ball curly. He always swung from the fourth stall. Number four was the big ya soo. The rest of the batting order consisted of sacrifice bitters and a pitcher. BUT now the sockers swing the timber from all over the line up. SPEAKER is leading both leagues -and Spoke hopps 'em from the third position in Cleveland list. Rube Ruth in switched from third to h.ith. all depending on how Miller Hug gins thinks he's thinking. ROUSCH Hornsby. Williams and Young are four of the ten lead ing slappers who still bat fourth. but Jack Smith, of the Cards, bats one day and doesn't bat the next.
