CrAftD THE CUB
Experience in Playing for World's Title
and Crack Pitching Staff Should Give
Boston Best of the Argument Fuller
ton Predicts Ruth Will Be Premier
While the Phillies were losing a
double bill to the Boston Braves in
the National league yesterday the
Brooklyn Dodgers won their game
with the New York team, thereby
clinching the flag in the National lea
gue and the honor to contend for the
World's championship for the fourth
time in the history of organized base
ball in the city of Brooklyn. Should
Brooklyn, lose their two remaining
games with the Giants and the Phil
lies win the games they still have to
play Manager Robinson's club would
Btill retain their hold at the top of
[the percentage column.
The contenders for the highest base
ball honor this year will be the Brook
lyn team, representing the National
league, and the Boston club, represent
ing the American league, winner of
the world's championship in 1915. The
race jp both circuits has been the
closest for the past few years and
the fans have been kept on edge
throughout the past month.
Fans in every section of the United
States will await the outcome of the
coming series with unusual interest.
Baseball bugs in Bismarck and vicin
ity will be no exception to this rule
and already the maniacs have been
doping out the relative strength of
the two teams.
The concensus of opinion seems to
point to the fact that the Boston club
will have the best of the argument.
One reason for this statement is due
to the fact that the Red Sox have
had a deal of experience playing in
a series for the world's title whereas
the Dodgers have not contended for
the pennant for several seasons.
Without a doubt pitching will be
the leading factor in the series and
will no doubt decide just who will
cop the bunting. The pitching staff

Foster, who won two games from the
Phillies last year, has been laid up
with a sore arm for some time and
it is a question as to whether or not
he will be able to mount the rubber

Passing up Foster eastern critics
assert that nevertheless Carrigan's
