Fast Little Monroe Cars Are Making Rail Birds Sit Up and Take Notice The four little green Monroe cars which will be piloted in the 300-mile race by Lonis Chevrolet, Gaston Chevrolet. Jos Thomas and ltoscoe Paries, have been nicknamed “Greenbacks" by the rail birds who watch the performance of the different curs in their practice tryouts at the speedway.s Roscoe Rtrles hns b?n out on the track nearly every day and his '’Greenback" is daily showing more speed. One of the most noticeable features of the "Greenbacks" is their novel egg shaped radiator protector which prevents damage to the radiator such as lost Arthur Chevrolet the race at Cincinnati last year when a splinter flew up and broke ills radiator, putting the car out of commission. *lt also serves to reduce the air resistance encountered st 100-mlle speeds, snd completes the stream line, narrow racing design.

PAUL, Minn., May 26.—After two more games on the road, including to day's. the Indians will pack op and hit the home trail, arriving in Indianapolis late Friday. Then on Saturday the home fans will glimpse their team in battle with the Louisville Colonels and, according to talk among members of the Tribe, it's going to be a red hot series. Following the shutout defeat handed them by Charlie Hall and the Saintless crew- yesterday the Hooslers were hoping to grab the series lead again this after noon. Manager Hendricks had Flaherty ! and Turner ready and there was a strong possibility that he would give Turner, the former Chicago Cub, Ills first trial as ail Indian. The Indians won the first contest of the series Monday, lost the second Tuesday, and still have a chance to grab the re mainder, although an even break out of the games today and tomorrow will not . go bad. The Indians were unfortunate yesterday In running into Charlie Hall when he was in his best form and as a result the Saints copped, 4 to 0. Hall pitched one of the best games of his association career and gave up only three hits. Zwiiling getting two and Smith one Jess Petty returned to the mound for tbe Hooslers after an attack of boils and he pitched effectively untit the late in nings. when Kelley's outfit broke through. Due to the fact that he had been out of the game a long time. Petty weak ened toward the finish after pitching on almost even terms with Hall. As the game wound up without the Hooslers scoring the weakening of Petty can not be held entirely the defeat, inasmuch as his mat>s failed to hit to anv extent. The Saints got one run in the fourth and three in the eighth. The marker was scored in the fourth on Bergham mer's single and Boone’a double, but the short rally failed to shake Petty and he came right back and went along i steadily until he weakened in tb eighth [ The Indians tried hard all the way. 1 but they simply were out of luck for tbe i day in the face of Hall's brilliant plteh ! ing. TWO TWIN BILLS WITH COLONELS Despite the fact that the Indianapolis baseball club is down In the A T. race, the fact remains that Owner Smith and 1 Manager Hendricks are striving to bolster up be outfit, and, therefore, loyal fans have not given up hopes of seeing their favorttes eventually getting np in the running. Consequently wheD tbe Indians return home Saturday for a aeries opener with ! tbe Colonels there wilt he plenty of fan* : present to offer encouragement. According to plans announced by Vice President Smith today one asjne will be played Saturday, two Sunday and two Monday. Last yejr tbe Indians did not perform on race’ sty, but till* year the team can ; htrdly afford to remain Idle due to rhe fact that postponements have been piling up rapidly. Therefore, it looks like three days of hlgh-claas thrilling baseball for Booster fans Saturday, Sunday and Monday. idteher Paul Jones, bought from the ; Boston Braves, will Join the Trios here Saturday, and probably will perform In one of the Louisville games. Others deals are on the fire and there ! is a s'rong possibility of Owner Smith | closing propositions with a big league club shortly for en outfielder and an other pitcher.

"Remain away from j the bleachers hereafter snd keep the | game clean from gambling.” said the ! Judge “if you are arrested again it will be tbe limit.” Four men arrested st the Polo grounds in tbe anti gambling crusade in prog ress at the major league park* were nr ralgned yesterday, and two found guilty of disorderly conduct. One was fined $lO and sentenced to two days in jail, while the other was fined $5 and Im prisoned one day. The other two pris oners were discharged. Dressier broke a small bone In bis ankle In the second inning against the Braves. It was his first appearance on the mound tht* season. Luqpe finished tbe game for the Rods and won it easily, giving tip bnt four hits. Singles by Rmlth, Young and Fletcher, coupled with erfors by Goodwin. Stock snd Shotton, gave the Oisnts their gamo with the Card.;. George Cykewski, sandlot recruit pitcher of Cleveland, has been released by the Cleveland American league club to Des Moines of the Western league. Sammy Crane got in the Cincy lineup yesterday when Rath was injured. Sammy was thought a jumper when he failed to report Monday, but later de velopments brought out tbe fact that it, was sickness that kept him awav from the park. Charlie See. utility outfielder, also denied reports that he was flirting with the outlaws. Wabash Trounced BLOOMINGTON, Ind., May 26—In diana defeated Wabash 9 to 6 on the Jordan field diamond yesterday after noon.

The Shamrock will be fitted with a wooden mast. Designer Nicholson says the challenger’s wooden mast Is a much stronger type than the one which broke as the Resolute crossed the finish line ahead of the Vanitie at New Haven. ! In ease the Shamrock should suffer a t similar accident, however, extra masts have been provided The twenty-three ! meter £>amrock, which is to*be the trial horse for Shamrock IV, is making her way to this country by easy stages. She first sailed from Ireland to the and then to Bermuda. • She is expected to arrive here about June 4 and will be Immediately fitted up , for the tuning up trials against the chal lenger. The two Shamrocks will do their tun ing up over the Sandy Hook course, where the classic International race will be sailed in July. Sir Thomas Lipton will arrive in this country about the middle of June. He is coming with a feeljng of confidence that his latest challenger -will be suc cessful, and those who have seen the Shamrock IV are willing to concede that she is a sloop with ail the earmarks of a true ocean greyhound, and one that may be expected to give either the Reso lute or Vanitie tbe greatest kind of rac ing.
