It was a bad day for baseball yester day. but the came was played neverthe less and the few fans in attendance saw the Brewers edge out a victory. < avet started on the mound for the i ribe, bet didn't last and Rogge and Murray got into the fracas in the clos ing innings. Despite the defeat, however, the Indians can t figure the Brewers have much class and they hoped to prove it today. Jake Northrop, former Indian, hnrled tor the locals most of the distance, but a threatening rally in the ninth carused him to be Jerked in favor of Howard, who put the big check on the Tribe. Northrop was touched up lively In ibe fourth and ninth, though it must be said that Jake was in the game with plenty of stnff, both in the box and at bat. Mostil headed the Brewer attack with three doubles and his bludgeon kept the Indians worried the entire afternoon. An error by Jimmy Smith and a wild pitch by Murray were costly, the wild pitch letting in the winning run in the eighth. The Smith error occurred in the fourth and permitted a Brewer run. Ollie O’Hara contributed the field tug feature of the day with great defensive work around third base. Oatrher Hnhn of the locals was fired out of the game by Umpire Knapp in the seventh for protesting a decision at the piste. XKW ROCHESTER COACH. ROCHESTER, IwL, May 13.—M. C.

The former Brownie is in a class by himself after that no bit, no-run performance. The Brewers still have a kick, thus showing it is not well to jump at con clusions. especially in Milwaukee, which has a way of its own. The Toledo Hens soon will meet the Saints. Reger Breenahan either will continue to live or turn up his toee ia that series. The Senatnrs scratched out another vic tory over the Saints. Scratched is right, because most of the t’olumbus safeties were of the lucky brand. However, the Saints have bad all the luck during the early season and they can stand a few bad breaks.

By HENRY FARRELL, Unl*ed Pres# Sports Editor. NEW YORK, May 13.—Another good foreign fighter gone wrong. George Papin, lightweight champion of France and stable mate of the noted Carpentier, ti>6k his first lesson in an American ring last night and went to the foot of the class. Lew Tendler, the Quaker city light weight, chased him for five rounds, caught him in the sixth and put him out in the ring in Jersey City. COUNT OF NINE FOUR TIMES. Referee Ertle counted nine over the Frenchman four times. Four times Francois Descamps, “hypnotic” mana ger. tapped on tbe corner floor as a sig nal to arise and the boy got to his feet. The fifth time he couldn't make it, despite the frenzied tapping of the ex cited manager. Asa tighter Papin is a wonderful sprinter. If any records were on the nooks for running backwards the French man would come close to having all of them. He set such a dizzy running pace in his that Tendler couldn't keep up with him. Papin was trapped in a neutral corner in the fifth and was pushed down three times for the count of nine—a sensation that had never been bis before. The first blow was a terrific right in the stomach and he was out from that time on. FRENCHIE FAILS TO LAND BLOWS. I'apln has nothing but gameness. He didn't hit Tendler more than three times in the fight, and not one of the blows shook the Philadelphian. In leading Papiu made himself wide open and T'ena ler went right through with lefts and rights at will. Papin, no doubt, is a tough boy. He took a terrible lacing and never went down further than his knees. Descamps, who is alleged to have hyp notized Joe Beckett, crouched in the cor ner wtth just his eyes visible above the hoards. He kept a stop watch in his hand and signalled bis fighter with the other hand, emitting not a word or a sound. Papin's eyes were on the corner most of the time.

NAME OLDFIELD AS PACEMAKER >■ FOR BIG RACE Barney Sure to Send Cars Off at Dizzy Pace in the 500- Mile Classic. The drivers in the 500-mile dash for $50,000 at the Motor speedway, Monday, May 31, can be assured a fast start, if they stay on the heels of Barney Oldfield, veteran driver of the world, who today was named by Speedway officials as pacemaker for the eighth international sweepstakes. Oldfield is now in Indianapolis and announces that he will drive a Marmon in his pacemaking dash. The special car is now being tested out at the Speed way and is exciting tbe admiration of the track hangers-on who appear daily, rain or shine. BARNEY GOING AT BEST SPEED. The driver “who never, looked back” win lead the field around the famous brick oval, bringing the fliers to the wire for the start of the five-century jaunt for fame and fortune at the fastest pace possible without breaking the as signed order. “It’s going to be hard to pnil oct and Jet all those cars pass me at the end of a single lap,” said the “old master,” but he added : “I'm game and I’ll surely help the boys warm the bricks all the way down the stretch." Barney has an Oldfield Special entered In the race, but be has elected to send Waldo Stein, a young driver, to face the starter, as he did last year when Roscoe Sarles handled his mount. If training counts for anything the thousands of persons who will be thrilled at the speedway Slay 31 will see a classy pilot in Stein, for he has been under Old field's wing for seven years. He rode with Barney on many of hia famous dashes and served his appren ticeship at the helm of a car at Elgin. He has made an excellent showing in sev eral coast races, but the Indianapolis race will be his first big league drive. Stein will have the assistance of an ex pert to guide his dash around the pval, for Barney will be in the pits offering assistance through a code of signals and tij the blackboard route.
