Pitcher Vaughn's Perfect Control
Wins Fifth Game For Cubs
More than 25,000 baseball en
thusiasts waited one hour yesterday
--for the fifth world series game to
start at Boston while the big-leaguers
of Cubs and Red Sox argued with the
National Commission for a heavier
share in the profits of the tourna
ment. By a mere eyelash the most
startling scandal ever attached to
the game was avoided after the
crowd had about reached the end of
its patience.
A tragic feature of the situation
was the appearance of hundreds of
wounded officers and soldiers, sur
vivors of the Marne, many of whom
were brought in on invalid chairs.
The immense arena rose as one to
cheer these heroes, and their echoes
resounded to the room where the
l>all players wrangled with Ban
Johnson and Garry Hermann, tell
ing such a tale of heroism that the
big-leaguers instantly surrendered.
Not only that, but Leslie Mann,
Everett Scott, Bill Killefer and
Harry Hooper hurled a bomb into
the official camp by suggesting that
the entire receipts of the series be,
turned over to the Red Cross. Herr
mann then informed the players
that they had no right to dispose of
the money until after the series had
been decided, declaring that the
other clubs interested would be in
a position to bring suit for their
The first four games of tke series
drew 88,551 persons and the players'
share is $69,527.70. On the basis
of the new plan of division which
caused the strike each member of
the winning team will receive $B9O
and the losers each $535. In an
nouncing their acceptance of this,
which is the smallest ever paid in a
world's series, the players declare
they were not being fairly treated,
but woultf submit rather than disap

leagues to get $15,469.51; those fin
lishing third. $9281.95, and those fin
ishing fourth, $6187.97.
The fifth game of the series proved
another stirring pitchers' battle, and
big Jim Vaughn, who faced the Red
Sox for the third time in one week,
finally obtained his revenge, shutting
out the American 'League pennant
winners., The giant southpaw was
good to-day, and Boston could do
nothing with him. He has hurled
three grand games against Boston,
but to-day's was his best. He had
speed and control and used every
thing he learned about the Red Sox
in his two previous efforts to prevent
them from crossing the plate. Five
hits were all the Sox could gather
off his portside shoots and curves.
In only three of the nine innnings did
more than three batsmen face him,
and only twice were the Sox able to
get a runner as far as second base.
In both of his previous games, passes
to first proved fatal to Vaughn, but
to-day he gave only one. This was
issued to Jones in the third, and
"Hippo" prevented further trouble
by slipping the third strike over on
Harry Hooper. In the first inning
after Hooper had led off with a

Needs of C. of C. Flag
Committee Are Outlined
The Chamber of Commerce flag
oommittee yesterday issued a state
ment announcing that designs for
the Chamber of Commerce flag will
be accepted until December 1. Six
teen designs have been accepted to
date, but none of them embodied all
the ideas of the flag committee. The
committee suggested that the design
might include in harmonious arrange
ment, the entrance to the city, a view
of the parks, the Capitol, industrial
views, the Penn-Harris Hotel, and the
railroad facilities. A prize of $5 will
be given the prize winner by the
Chamber, and the Harrisburg Tele
graph will give a prize of $1 to the
designer of the second choice. The
committee is composed of: Arthur E.
Brown, chairman; E. B. Black. W.
Grant Rauch. Charles K. Boas, F. E.
Downes and William B. Hammond.

Plack made a spectacular running
catch of Whiteman's foul fly close
to the right-field fence.
Aside from Vaughn's splendid
pitching, the sensational fielding of
the Cubs furnished the outstanding
feature of the game. Behind the
man who has gone to the firing liqe
as often as any one pitcher in any
world series, the National League
representatives played as befitted
pennant winners. For the first time
in the series they made absolutely
no blunders, mentally or physically.
They outbatted and outplayed the
Red Sox to-day and won the game
strictly on its merits In the ninth

reserve pitchers in the "bull pen"
warming up, Mays, Pertica and
Dubuc taking turns, but each time
some bit of fine fielding saved Jones
and he was allowed to stay on the
mound until the Cubs finally landed
their knockout punch.
The Red Sox never got fairly
started against Vaughn. After the
openings offered in the first and
third, Strunk got the first real hit off
the Cubs' southpaw, a ripping dou
ble to the far corner of right field. ,
In trying to sacrifice, Whiteman |

"Fat" Lauster is the first Technical
High school football player to be
placed on the Maroon casualty list
of wounded. Scarcely had the prac
tice begun last evening when Laus
ter sprained his left ankle and re
tired from the contest. It is not
thought that the injury is serious
and Coach Smith expects to have the
services of the corpulent Fred in a
day or two. Lauster made the team
his first year at Teoh and is one of
the dependables on the line.
The Maroon warriors practiced for
two hours last evening under the
watchful eye of Coach Smith. Earl
Philippelli was given a place on the
line after the withdrawal of Laus
ter. "Phil" is a junior and played
part of the last two years. Parental
objection was the cause of his dis
continuance of the gridiron game.
The team started with "Bill"
Hoerner at quarter, Wilsbach at full
back, while Ebner and Beck were at
the halves. Later Lingle was placed
at half and Captain Ebner was shift
ed to quarterback. Three teams were
running through signals with sub
stitutes for each squad. Beck, Wils
bach and Ebner punted to the other
candidates who practiced starting
with the pigskin. The candidates
were also given a taste of tackling.

Captured Mail Shows
Poor German Morale
With the British Army In France,
Sept. 11. Some idea of the state of
the German morale may be had from
the following quotations picked at
random from captured documents and
letters. One German wrote home
but he did not get a chance to post
the letter—as follows:
"I have been in the line for four
teen weeks. Johann is well
looked after. I wish I, too. was a
prisoner of war"
Another letter reads:
"When we retired, two Alsatians
remained behind. If they had only
said they were going to desert, many
more would have stayed with them."
One message says: "Our men are
completely exhausted and can hardly
stund upright."
Another says: "The men cannot
keep their eyes open owing to strain
and fatigue. They must have relief."
Still another soldier writes: "We
hear that the Bavarians and Saxons
no longer wish to fight. How is It
going to end?"
Captured orders indicate that the
German air service lis befing well
combed out. and that airplane mech
anicians, much to their disgust, are
being drafted into the infantry.
