TRAVELERS WIN ANOTHER VICTORY-WEST END BATTLES TONIGHT WITH MOTIVE POWER
YOUNG PITCHER IS SOME STAR Bert Hinkle Leaves Infield For Mound; Common wealth Wins STANDING OF TEAMS W. L. Pet West End 20 10 .666 Motivo Power 18 14 .662 Commonwealth 16 16 .500 E. and F 9 23 .281 WEST END TO PI.AY MOTIVE POWER On West End Field, Fourtli and Seneca streets this evening will be fought an important base ball battle. West End, leaders In the race will play Motive Power, runners up. The game starts at 6.30. If the boys on top win, the second team will have little chance to land the flag. Motive Power must take the game to get in the running. Some surprises will be in order. Commonwealth last evening with "Birdie" Hinkle on the mound took a game from the Firemen and Engi neers. Ihe Travelers are now only two games bJi of the Motive Power team. The latter to-night plays West End. the leaders. Should the runners no lose, the M. P.'s chances for winning the pennant will go glimmering. Furthermore it means they will have to fight to hold sec ond place. There was method in the work of the Commonwealth team last eve ning. It was play ball from start to finish. Biever had a bad spell in the fourth, while Hinkle had the Railroaders guessing in every in ning. Fast fielding featured the bat tle, but Hinkle was the candy boy. He is an inflelder and proved a big surprise as a curve hurler. Wagoner's Home Run One of the features of the game was the home run swat made by Harry Wagoner, who covers the left gar den for the Engineers and Firemen. Wagner made his drive in the fourth inning when he drove the second ball pitched to him so far out into right field that he had circled Uu> bases and had comfortably seated himself on the players' bench before the sphcrj was recovered and re turned to the infield. Had it not been for this drive, the railroaders would have been whitewashed, for they could do nothing with Hinklc's delivery after that. Commonwealth scored in the sec ond inning. N. Ford hit for two bases. Bell fanned. Kiliinger ground ed to first and Ford took third on the play. Biever made a balk and Ford was permitted to score. Four More Runs Gerdes opened the fourth with a single and went to second on N. Ford's base hit. Both runners were advanced a base or. Bell's sacrifice, Kiliinger was safe on Dill's error, and on Smith's single, Gerdes and Ford scored. Fields followed with a single, scoring Kiliinger and Smith. On the throw to the plate to catch Smith going home. Fields took sec ond. Coehhlin struck out, Lightner walked and Hinkle ended the inning by flying out to Wagner. The score: E. AND F. R. H. O. A. E.

Knights of Columbus Win Twelve-Inning Battle The Knights of Columbus baseball team is keeping up its good record. These boys won over McSherrystown in the benefit score 4 to 3. The locai team has seven games without a de feat. In the last game, "Bill" Sha fer's drive, with two on in the eighth, end T. Euker's running catch of a line drive in the tenth with two on base, were two of the big features. Perhaps the most unique play of the season was pulled by Oscar Walz the locals' second sacker. Weaver singled sharply between first and sec ond. Walz with his characteristic Spirit of never giving up chased the ball into right field. The runner loafed on his way to first to our ad vantage for the ball stuck In the high grass and Oscar Walz picked it up and threw out the runner by a foot. Sturm's pitching was a decided factor in holding down the locals. The score: K. of C. 01000002000 1 4 McS'st'n ..001 0101 0 000 o—3 ARE YOU GOING TO "BECKLEY'S" IN SEPTEMBER?

Two hits for Liverpool, one that Gelbach, Wevodan and Clark sur rounded, and left fall safe, with a missed third strike by Snyder, were the discues that gave Liverpool their only runs of the game.

McGraw Has Big Interest in Cincinnati Here is what Manager McGraw says about the "Reds": "I naturally take a sort of a personal interest in the Cincin nati club because I furnished it with st- much of its personnel. In addition to Moran, Groh, Roush, Rariden and Salee went to the Reds from New York. I have heard various opinions concerning the trades which took playe.s away, but even -in baseball you | rarely get something for nothing. "For instance, I knew that .Groh was a great little player, but, at the time, I couldn't use him and t had to have a pitcher. I traded Groh and Devore for Fromme. What the trade meant to me was the winning of a t.ennant. Fromme wo,i eight straight games for me." "See, the former International League player Moran has been using as an outfielder, is another player I helped to develop. He is a Bronx boy and r.e used to come to the Polo Grounds and work out with the Giants at morning prac tice. Arthur Irwin took him to Rochester and from there he went to Cincinnati. "While he is not another Ruth, he looks like a good hitter." Today Is Anniversary of McGraw's First Big Game Twenty-eight years ago to-day, or on August 26, 1891, John J. McGraw, the manager of the Giants, played his first game in fast company. It was at Baltimore against Columbus. Wilbert Robinson, Brooklyn man ager, caught for the Orioles. Mc- Graw had just come from the Cedar Rapids club of the Illinois-lowa League. Henry Fabian, v present ground keeper of the Polo Grounds, placed with McGraw on the Cedar Rapids Canaries, and Billy Murray, Pirate scout, was in the same league with the Little Napoleon.

ENHAUT ELEVEN HAS STAR LINEUP Eight Veterans Ready to Begin Practice—New Players Look Promising i Enhaut football team has re organized for the coming season. The management is prepared to ar range games with any amateur teams In Dauphin and adjoining counties. So far eight veteran play ers have reported to the manager and will form a nucleus for tho team. Many promising players have been found among the new candidates, who will make some of the vets work hard to hold their old jobs. Robert Cooper who held the full back position for several years, has been doing some flying for Uncle Sam and will probably make some of his opponents leave the ground to stop him. Walter Kuhnert, a well known boxer of Dauphin county, will try to hold down right half back. Edward At tick To Piny Edward Attick, a former Pen brook star, will be out for left half back. Frank Bowers and Lewerne Snavely, both of whom saw service with Uncle Sam, will try for the j same position. Chester Cooper, a star in former years, will try for his old position as quarter back. The line, which will be stronger than ever, will be composed of the following: The center position will be well taken care of by Bartels, an ex soldier and one of the best amateur centers in this vicinity. The guard position will be a hard struggle be tween W. Metka, Etzwiler, Parthe more, Soux, and Still. "Bing" Metka and big "Jim" Av ery, a former Steelton School star, will shell shock the tackles of the opposing teams. Metka weighs 200 pounds and Avery 190 poupds. The candidates for ends are: E. Hoover, J. Cooper, Laudenslager, G. Hoover and Kefeter. AUeman and Hoover will endeavor to stop their opponents like they stopped the "Hun" at Chateau-Thierry. All teams wishing games, address communications to Earl Shupp, manager, Enhaut Athletic Associa tion, Enhaut, Pa.
