BATTLE FOR PENNANT IN STEEL LEAGUE BEGINS TOMORROW; McINNIS AND RUTH HEROES
"Stuffy" Mclnnis
"Babe" Ruth Heroes at
World Series Opening
With runners on first and second
hase in the fourth inning of the first
of the world series games at' Chicago,
"Stuffy" Mclnnis rapped a line sin
gle to left field and Dave Shean sped
across the plate with the only run of
the contest, beating Mann's good
throw to Killifer by a good margin
It was the first time a 1 to 0 score
has decided a worid's series game
since 1905, when Mathewson and
Bender both pitched winning games
by this margin in a series in which
every game resulted in a shutout for
the losing team.
The battle was rated a great tri
umph for "Babe" Ruth, who out
pitched another famous southpaw,
Jim Vaughn, particularly by his abil
ity to prevent the Cubs from hitting
at the essential moment. Three times
in the nine innings a hit would have
driven in a run and twice a clean
single would have scored enough
runs to have decided the battle in
the Cubs' favor. But it was in the
pinches that the Boston portsider
was at his best. His control was ab
solutely perfect at critical stages.
Vaughn was severely criticized for
his "slip" in the fatal fourth when
he passed Dave Shean. In attempt
ing to sacrifice, Strunk bunted a fly
which Vaughn captured. Whiteman,
substituting for Ruth in left field,
and who made two of Boston's five
hits, shot a single to center, Shean
being held on third base. The stage
was set for Mclnnis, a dangerous hit
ter in a crisis. Considering "Stuffy's"
reputation as a left field hitter, it
seemed as if Mitchell pulled the first
"bone" oft he series by failing to
rhift his outfield to play for "Little
Mae." When the signal was given,
Shean and "Whiteman got oft to a
flying start. Vaughn put one in the
"groove" for Mclnnis and "Stuffy"
pulled a line drive directly over
Deal's head. Shean had turned third
before Mann had raced over to the
ball and 'it was easy for Davey to
slide across the plate several feet
ahed of the ball.
WAR MUFFLES
BIG SERIES
Even the Electric Scoreboard
Felt Depressed and Re
fused to Get Agitated
World war put the muffler on
baseball yesterday and all the usual
grotesque demonstrations were lack
ing. When the Cubs lost, after a
terrific battle, no one complained,
and there was practically no cheer
ing during the whole fray. With
less than 20.000 persons present the
upper grandstand and right section
were almost empty.
War taxes, the high cost of living,
curtailed railroad service at advanc
ed prices, the weather, the curtailed
season and over all the shadow of
the war were said to account for
the indifference of the public. The
dyed-in-the-wool fans were there,
but not the general public.
The left, field bleacher space usual
ly given over to the virtues of a cer
tain chewing gum admonished the
crowd to "keep the glow in Old
Glory." and the right field space com
manded "Buy War Saving Stamps and
do it now." At intervals six air
planes from the war exposition on
the lake front reminded the specta
tors that baseball is not an essential
industry. Even the brass band was
cut down to a war basis of twelve
pieces, and it attracted most atten
tion when it played the "Star
Spangled Banner." On this occasion
players and audience stood respect
fully, Fred Thomas among them.
Thomas, third baseman for Boston
was in the Ked Sox uniform by grace
of a fourteen days' furlough from the'

One thrill was granted the crowd
I aside from the game, and that was
what must have happened to the
aspirations of the ticket speculators.
They had unlimited seats which they
attempted to sell at double and even
treble normal prices.
Even the electric score boards fail
ed to rise to the occasion. Specta
tors were reminded by Innumerable
hawkers that "you can't tell the
players without a score card," but
purchasers not familiar with the
game, found they could not anyway,
for that portion of the board devoted
' to the batters failed to work.
Rival Managers Tell
How It Happened
"It was the first test of strength
and the breaks were against us."
said Fred Mitchell, manager of the
Cubs. "However, credit is due
Ruth for his wonderful pitching.
The Cubs have ferreted out the
weak spots of the Red Sox and the
score will tell a different story to
morrow. I have not decided who I
shall pitch, but it is likely to be
Tyler.' 1
"We got the jump on them to
day, and the Red Sox are confi
dent of repeating to-morrow," said
Manager Barrow, of the Boston
club. "Ruth pitched great ball
and I certainly shall start htm
back on the Cubs when we play in
Boston. I haven't made up my
mind who I shall pitch to-morrow.
It will be either Mays or Bush.
Baseball is a long ways from dead.
Judging on the enthusiasm and size
of to-day's crowd. We will even
have a bigger opening day crowd
in Boston."

A series of ball games, far more j
interesting to local enthusiasts than j
the world championship now being
battled for in Chicago, is scheduled :
to begin to-morrow at Cottage Hill:
between Steelton and Bethlehem. ;
The executive committee of the steel,
league, consisting of Quincy Bent,;
H. E. Lewis, A. A. Lewis and James
Gheen, came to this decision after!
Saturday's games which left the lead- j
teams tied. Tossing a coin, j
Steelton won and so the first game i
comes here.
The proceeds of the games are to!
be donated to war charities. The
Steelton branch of the Red Cross will j
profit by the game at Steelton while
the Yo Eddie Club, of Bethlehem, {
will receive the receipts taken in atj
the game in that city. Should the;
third game be required it is most:
likely that the receipts will be paid j
to the league treasury.
To-morrow will see Plank and res- j
reau in the points and it will be at
stern contest. Jeff is the leading;
pitcher f or Bethlehem, winning his
last four games. Indeed, the whole
pitching staff of the steel league is
high caliber, just as good as that of
the major leagues. Of course there
are exceptions, such as Walter John
son, Vaughn and several others in the
big show. However, for a well bal
anced aggregation of twirlers the big
leagues have nothing on the muni
tion workers. With Jeff Tesreau.l
Eddie Plank, Miles Mains, "Dutch"}
Leonard, Allan Russell, A 1 Mamaux,j
Ed Dumont, "Lefty" Pierce eom-|
prising the staff of any of the big|
league clubs, it would be the oest
balanced in the big show. None of
the above mentioned were anywhere
near sliding when they jumped to the
Schwab circuit, and to-morrow's
game should exhibit rare twisting by
Tesreau and Plank.
Steelton, with Buck Ramsey pitch
ing, received a shock at York yester
day evening when . the American

Knights of Columbus are invading
Italy in force and, according to an
announcement to-day by William J.
Mulligan, chairman of the Knights
of Columbus Committee on War Ac
tivities, he has placed before that
committee and the Committee on
Overseas Work plans calling for the
operation of at least ten Knights of
Columbus buildings in Italy within
a month. Mr. Mulligan said also
that it is planned to have a hundred
Knights of Columbus secretaries at
work in Italy by October 15.
Temporary Knights of Columbus
headquarters in that country will at
once be established in Genoa. Later
It will be decided whether they shall
remain there or be removed to Flor

Chicago, Sept. 6. —The Boston Red
Sox, champions of the American Lea
gue, won the first game of the world's
baseball series by defeating the Chi
cago Cubs, pennant winners of the
National League, yesterday by the
score of 1 to 0. The score could not
have been closer, nor could the game
have been a better one. It was an
exceptional game for a world's series
clash, but a disappointing one for the
local fans.

AROUND THE BASES
The strain of playing for high
honors and big money which usually
is figured on as likely to affect the
work of some pastimers in tho
world's series will not feaze a goodly
percentage of the participants in this
year's classic. No fewer than four
teen of them have been through the
mill. Eight of the Red Sox and six of
the Cubs have played in the big
series before. Bush, Schang, Mclnnis
and Strunk as members of the Ath
letics; Hooper, Scott, Mays and Ruth
as members of the Red Sox. Of the
Cubs, Merkle took part in the base
ball classic when with New York and
later with Brooklyn. Paskert was
with the Phillies in the big event in
1915. Catcher Killefer also was with
the Philliies that yfear but injured his
arm just prior to the series, a mis
hap tlxat had a great bearing on the
result with the clash with the Red-
Sox. He did, however, go to bat
once in the last game, acting as a
pinch hitter. Tyler. Deal and Mann
were members of the Braves when
they took four straight from the
Athletics in 1914. Merkle, Hooper,
Strunk and Mclnnis might be called
world's series veterans, Mclnnis and
Hooper each having been in three
big clashes while Merkle and Strunk
each have been in four. Peculiarly,
Deal, Tyler and Mann were members
of the team that defeated Philadel
phia when Bush, Mclnnis. Strunk
and Schang were Mack warriors.
None of the four Athletics did much
at the bat in that series while Bush
was batted hard.
"I am glad the season is over," said
Clark Griffith. "Now we can all put
our shoulders to the wheel and help
in the job of licking Germany. When
the war is over there will be a new
era of and the sport will be
bigger than ever. It is simply taking
a vacation until the serious business
of winning the war is finished.."
The 1918 world series battles arc
detailed to the soldier boys abroad
at the expense of the National Com
mission, as a result of the official ap
proval of the series by the Federal
government as expressed by Secre
tary of War and Provost Marshal
General Crowder. In this connection
the National Commission gladly
avails itself of the service of the
Committee of Public Information
which extends to our American Army
camps, Y. M. C. A. and Knights of
Columbus huts, Red Cross Head
quarters, hospitals in France, Italy
and England, and all other places
where soldiers on foreign service
gather. This Bureau's facilities for
furthering and distributing news di
rect to our American forces is un
surpassed, and with the co-opera
tion of this agency* the success of the
Commission's efforts to keep our sol
diers and sailors promptly informed
of the progress and results of the
world series is assured.
Zack Wheat, of Brooklyn, earned
the batting honors of the National
League by the narrow margin of one
ten-thousandths of a point over Ed
die Roush, of Cincinnati, according
to unofficial figures worked out after
the last game was played. The fig
ures are: "Wheat, .33496, and Roush,
.33486." Ty Cobb again leads the
American League with .380, just
three points below his mark of last
>' ear -
This is known as the "iron-jaw"
series. Both managers have that sort
of an inferior maxillary. Neither
knows the meaning of "quit" or
"can't." Fred Mitchell, or to give
him his right name, Fred Yapp,
served his time as pitcher and *a
catcher in both the major and
minors. He was never a famous
pitcher nor catcher, although he was
a mighty good player in his time. He
won his way to fame as coach of the
sensational Boston Braves in 1914,
and when he took the management
of the Cubs two years ago there
wasn't a baseball critic who knew
him but that predicted he would suc
ceed. Ed Barrow, like Mitchell, has
nothing much to brag about in the
line of his accomplishments on the
diamond as a player. He was suc
cessful as a' manager, however, and
when he got into the political end
of the game he immediately made a
name for himself.
"Anyone who Imagines he can be
come an expert trapshooter in short
time has another guess," says Peter
Carney. "The art of shooting in the
field is not to be mastered in a day
or year. It is the result of ripened
experience, and seasons of constant
practice and close observation are
required to insure its possession."
Dr. A 1 Sharpe has returned to
Ithaca to make preparations for the
approaching football season. He has
been engaged throughout the sum
mer as a physical director at an
army camp, but the athletic authori
ties at Cornell were unwilling to part
with him, even for the duration of
the war. because they believe he will
be of quite as much service as coach
of the Cornell football, basketball
and baseball teams as he would-be
if engaged in a similar capacity in
the army or the navy. The Cornell

respects to the lists of games ar
ranged in prewar times. The only
marked change, in fact, is the mov
ing of the usual Thanksgiving day
game with Pennsylvania forward to
Saturday, November 23, the day pre
empted in the past by the annual
1 ale-Harvard struggle. Under the
new arrangement the Ithacans will
wind up their football activities prac
tically a week earlier than usual, and
will eliminate an always troublesome
gap in the schedule which was
caused by the impossibility of play
ing a game on the Saturday preced

Athletics as part of the corrective
course for delinquency has been in
stituted at the Portsmouth Naval
P u ?•' ' ollowin g an experiment by
the Navy Commission on training
camp activities. Edward J. Hines, of
Boston, has been appointed athletic
director at the station and has in
troduced a daily program of recrea
tional sport as a feature of the pris
on life. Within a short time a mark
ed improvement was noticed in the
. conduct of the inmates of the prison.
Three baseball leagues have been
formed among the inmates, each
league containing eight teams. The
regular games include tug-of-war,
pushball, volleyball and.track and
field sports. A shorthand system of
setting-up exercises has been in
stalled, and weekly track meets are
held.

PlUladclphla.—Here are ten sug
gestions which the general commit
tee of anthracite operators says will
result in a saving of 500,000 tons ol
anthracite in Philadelphia during th
coming win:#r if they are followed:
First, Start the furnace and kitch
en fires as late as possible. Forgei
:he first few cool fall days. Put up
with a little disccunfort and remem
ber that the boys "over there" daily
lace the weather with smiling faces.
Second, Raise window curtains
luring the day to admit sunlight, for
that is free heat. Dispense with awn
ings, as they shut out the sun.
Third, Weatherstrip all doors and
windows and put asbestos around all
furnaces, boilers and cellar pipe!
used for heating purposes-
Fourth, Reduce the home temper
ature to sixty-seven degrees. Do nol
wait until the mercury shows seven
ty-four degrees before closing drafts.
By this time that extra amount ol
coal will have been consumed and
wasted.
Fifth, Bedrooms where window!
are opened fot the night or other
wise, should be shut off from the
heat. Use blankets and feel better
in the morning.
Sixth, Wear heavier clothing. This
materially saves body heat.
Seventh. Thoroughly clean sooi
from pipes and boilers and do noi
mind doing a little work in the cel
lar, seeing that windowpanes are
light and weatherstripped like the
other parts of the house.
Eighth, Burn oil, wood, coke and
bituminous when possible. Use gas
for cdoking and heating. Gas light
ing at night aids in heating the
home, store and building where used.
Ninth, Use heavy draperies oe
doors and windows for interior home
decoration. This aids in husbanding
interior heat supply.
Tenth, Remember you are noi
fighting in a trench exposed to ail
kinds of weather. YoUr men are and
have become hardened by contact
with the back-to-nature idea. They
are also healthier and more robust
