WHITE SOX HOPE FOR COMEBACK IN SECOND GAME-WILKES-BARRE HIGH TO PLAY HERE
CICOTTE TO TRY COME BACK; MAY PITCH AGAIN FRIDAY; CINCINNATI HAS CELEBRATION By Associated Press. Cincinnati, Oct. 2.—Eddie Cicotte, Iho master pitcher of the American League who was driven out of 'he opening game of the world's cer.es j esterday under a broadside of hits, to-day expressed confidence in his ability to come back at the Rods whenever called upon by Manager Gleason. Cicotte, with nearly thirty vic tories to his credit this season, is carrying the hopes of Chicago fans on his shoulders and they have every confidence that he will pitch the Sox to victory In two and possibly tjiree of the remaining games. The mas ter of the 'shine' and 'knuckle' ball declared to-day that he was com pletely unnerved when he hit Rath, the first man up in the game yes terday and lost all control of the ball in the fourth inning. Went to Pieces "It is hard to explain," Cicotte said, "but I was in no condition to pitch the game that I had expected. I felt perfectly confident before the game started and appeared to have 'everything' when I was warming up, but when I hit Rath, it seemed to have a strange effect on me. I felt so badly about it that I trotted with him along the first base line to see if the ball had hurt him. When Rath assured me that he was all right I went back to the pitching mound, but I did not seem to be right." Supporters of the White Sox believe that Manager Gleason will send Cicotte in to oppose the Reds Betting Shows Change on Final Result World's Series Cincinnati. Ohio, Oct. 2. After ruling 8 to 5 and 7 to 5 favorites before the start of yesterday's game, the White Sox were no better than even money in the betting on the world's series here to-night. Sev eral wagers, ranging from $5OO to $2,500, were made on to-day's con test. Previous ,to the opening game, odds were given that the White Sox would win the series. Scalpers reaped a rich harvest selling tickets for the opening con test, but an hour before the game was called the speculators slashed their prices and were apparently anxious to dispose of their tickets at face value. Box seats for three games, costing $19.50 were snapped up at prices ranging from $4O to $6O early in the day. One visitor paid $125 l'or three $5.50 seats for to-day's game. Persons having seats to sell cir culated among the baseball crowds thronging the hotel corridors, ped dling their wares. The speculators also were busy on street corners and other places where baseball crowds gathered. Federal authorities made one ar rest and held one witness in connec tion with the ticket selling. Under the law, speculators selling tickets for more than face value are obliged to pay Federal war tax of fifty per cent, of the amount received. Revenue agents were stationed in hotel lobbies to watch for violations and a score of suspected scalpers were questioned. BEXXIE LEONARD WINS Detroit, Mich., Oct. 2.

[ I THURSDAY EVENING, i in the game scheduled in Chicago I Friday or Saturday. Cincinnati Celebrates Clarence Rowland, who piloted I the White Sox to a world's cham | pionship, is convinced that Cicotte I will come back and beat the Reds I before the series ends. He watched j the defeat of the White Sox yester day and seemed to feel the loss of the game as keenly as Manager Gleason. Rowlund was succeeded by Gleason as manager af the Sox this season. Cincinnati fans celebrated the first victory of the Reds in a riotous manner. Impromtu parades were staged in downtown streets, and ho tel lobbies. A little German Ijand furnished the music for one parade, while a Scotch bagpipe band headed another procession. The celebrations continued until long after midnight. Fred Mitchell, manager of the Chicago National League team, who witnessed the victory of the Rods yesterday, said he never saw Reu tlier pitch a better game. Grover Cleveland Loudermilk, the elongated pitcher of the Chicago I White Sox, had a narrow escape from missing the first game. He sent his suit out to be pressed but \ the garments failed to come back. The big pitcher waited in his hotel room and was on the verge of send ing for his playing togs when the clothes arrived. Ixmdermilk is so tall that he was unable to get a ready-to-wear suit in the city that I would fit him.

Anyone who saw the ! opening game of the world's series as reproduced on the Ritter Electric Player Board at the Chestnut Street Auditorium yesterday afternoon had just as many sensations and thrills as if they were at the big show on the Reds' field. When the Reds started their bat ting spree the crowd was all Cin cinnati, although there was no small army of Chicago adherents who stood for their favorites until the last minute and still declare that the White Sox will turn the tables. Cries of "Hit her out Reuther," "Wait on it Heine" and "Oh you Daubert" rang through the hall dur ing the afternoon and when Dutch Reuther pounded out his second triple the great throng went wild. Anyone on the outside would have imagined that a real ball park was close at hand. So complete is the Ritter board that every possible play of the game is shown. It was a great sight to watch the Cincinnati players run ning the bases in that eventful fourth inning when five runs were registered. Mr. Ritter has made arrangements to reproduce every game of the great series at Cheat nut street hall and the baseball fans will make it a mecca during the re mainder of the series. A wire run ning direct to the playing fields in Cincinnati and Chicago affords in stantaneous service and the play is reproduced on the board Just a few minutes after it has actually occur red on the playing field. The games start here at 3 o'clock. Big Cities Want Klein Team For Exhibition Contests; Meet New York Monday Manager John Brackenridge, of the Klein Chocolate Company team, may wind up the season next week.

GLEASON LOOKS TOSOUTHPAW 'Lefty' Williams Hope of 'Kid' Gleason in Second Bat tle With Reds Cincinnati, Oct 2.—Claude "Lefty" Williams, rated as one of the best left-handers In the American League this season, probably will be Manager "Kid" GleOtson's pitching selection to stop the batting drive of the Reds in the second game of the world's series to-day. While "Pat" Moran, the leader of the Reds, did notcare to make any official announcement concerning his mound choice, it was generally ac cepted that either "Slim" Sallee or "Hod" Ellcr would oppose the White Sox to-day. "We got away to a flying start," said Manager Moran last night, "beating Cicotte, Gleason's best bet, and it makes no difference to my men .what pitcher Gleason starts to day. They said before the series that the Reds couldn't hit. Fourteen hits tells the story. The same bat ting drive will carry them through to victory. Confidence Wltli Victory "The Reds entered the series a 'cocky' lot of players and this vic tory has given them a lot more con fidence. Reuther deserved a shutout and the Chicago players will find it just as hard to hit our other pitch ers. Reuther deserved great credit for the victory. He was cool at all times. His batting was a surprise to me." "We will even up the series to day," said Manager Gleason, of the White Sox. "when Cicotte hit Rath in the first inning he was not him self thereafter. I could have taken him out then, but I trusted that luck would enable Eddie to regain his control. I intend to start Wil liams to-day and have every confi dence that there will be a different tale to tell. "Reuther had a world of stuff yesterday and pitched a really re markable game. He should have all the credit for the victory. His batting stamps him as a Second "Babe" Ruth. "Yesterday's defeat has not dis heartened my players. I am sure the defeat will act as an incentive to win to-day." Gettysburg Eleven to Meet Penn State College Team Gettysburg, Oct. 2. The Gettys burg College football squad leaves to-morrow for the opening game of the season at State College. Judging from the work of the team at the present time there is no indication that it will accomplish exceptional feats against the Blue and White. For two weeks Head Coach Wood and Backfield Coach Leathers have been striving to whip their material in shape but the time has been in- I sufficient to weld together a good combination and local fans are looking forward to State winning by a comfortable score. Although the Gettysburg squad is green and may not show up well so soon in the season the student body is looking forward to them to fight from start to finish and expect that spirit to keep State from gain ing at wilj. LaP.ue, the big tackle, continues to show up well and the line may be strengthened in the near future by the addition of Nelson Fisher, a 'Varsity guard before the war who has just entered college. This afternoon's practice was fea tured by the line plunging of Adam Houtz and a wide end run by Davis. Phillips scored the onl£ touchdown of the day.
