TRIBE FACES BIG CARD WITH COMING OF COLUMBUS; MIDWEEK DOUBLE BILL ON SCHEDULE HEAVY SERIES WITH CLYMERS FOLLOWS BLUES £ix Games in Four Days for Indians With Senator Outfit. REILLEY HAS BIG DAY Following the windup game with the K. C. Blues this afternoon the Indians will face their heaviest series of the year when they tangle with the Biil Clymer’s Columbus Senators for six games in four days. Tho extra bill calls for a double-header tomorrow, single games Friday and Sat urday and a second twin bill Sunday. The Tribe pitching staff faces a huge task, therefore, but it is ready to meet it, and if the Hoosiers walloped the Blues again today the old restored confidence ll expected to carry the team through the Senator seiles with colors flying. DUKE GOING LIKE BIG LEAGUER. Duke Rellley played in big league style yesterday and his work was the big fea ture of the Indians' second victory over the Blues, S to 4. The speed merchant got three hits, one a “sllker” for three sacks, drew a walk, stole three bases and performed in his usual brilliant style in the left field. Duke uncorked his three-base blow with the bases loaded and that socker practically won the game. Charlie Whitehouse faced the Cuban Tuero on the mound and the local south paw hurled a fair game. Several times he gave signs of weakeaing. but he managed to brace and finished the winner. On Their Stride INDIANS. AB. R. H. O. A. E.

Both clubs scored a brace of markers in the opening, but the Indians started to draw out in front in the third by sev ring a third run. Four more were chased over in the fourth and one in the sixth, making the iota; eight. The Blues counted two in the first, one in the fourth and their last marker in the sevtnth. Manager Hendricks became appre hensive at times when Whitehouse ap peared to weaken, but he let the slim southpaw stay and his judgement proved correct. TEX AND WALTER GET TRIPLES. Covington and Rehg cut iu with triples that drove in runs, thereby boosting the Tribe's rapidly mounting extra-base rec ord. The victory gave the Indians five out of the last six games played, and the Hoosier athletes have the feeling that roey have at last struck a winning streak that was a long ume coming, but never theless welcome. Vice President Smith's visit to Chicago, where he conferred with Ban Johnson on the Ollie O’Mara case, was without favor able result to the Indians and the ban placed against the Tribe jumper by the national commission still stands. Therefore, Ollie must remain out of oiganized baseball for a period cf five years, and now Ollie no doubt regrets his unsportsmanlike move in deserting the Indianapolis club after It had done the right thing by him when it met his own term*. WASHINGTON PARK NOTES. By jumping to the outlaws and there by drawing a five-year suspension from organized baseuall, Ollie O'.Viara lost out on a three-year contract with the Bos ton Bed Sox at an enormous salary. Manager Ed Barrow was wild to ob tain the Tribe thlrd-sacker and was will ing to go the limit to get him. liut Ollie dallied too long in the outlaw league after leaving the Indiana. He waa warned that five days would be given for him to return, but he refused to act iu thay time, ami then when ha did come down off his perch it was too late. Ollie then began firing telegrams to Owner Smith of the Indians asking when he should report to Boston, but the case had gone out of the jurisdiction of the Indianapolis club and tthe national com- settled O'Mar, i and a number •< other jumpers with one sweeping stroke. A three-year contract at big figures in the big leagues—that is what O'Mara has robbed himself of by flirting with the outlaws. In the meantime the big plants in the cast now supporting outlaw baseball are likfiy to gl'fe up the sport whenever they feel that labor problems have been solved and recreation sideshows are no longer needed to keep the workmen in a working frame of mind. Bunny Brief of the Blues is mighty dangerous with the bat. It takes care ful pitching to prevent him socking one for extra bases. He got a double yester day and on his last time up he drove Rellley far back to get his distance fly. Young Brock Is doing regular service behind the bat for the Blues, but Reilley got him rattled yesterday by running wild on the bases. Ed Sweeney, the other K. C. receiver, appears to be too tired to work much. Schreiber made a great play on Mc- Carthy’s drive to deep short in the fifth. The Indians need to practice in stop ping the double steal with men on first and third. The Blues put one through on the Tribe yesterday. Schreiber end Wolf, who have been In the damps with the bat, each got a safety yesterday. Eddie Zwiiling missed out for the afternoon. He either popped up or filed out. The Tribe directors are trying to ob tain an lnfielder from the Red Sox re gardless of the failure of the O'Mara deal to go through. Reb Russell has been given bis nncon- release by the Indians. When /It deal was made for Herb Hunter, Raasell was dropped. Reb’s weak throw ing arm handicaps him as an outfielder. Twilight Rowing the Fad NEW LONDON, Conn., June IC.—Twi light rowing has become the fad with Coaches Haines and Nickalls of the Har vard and Yale crews.

Two American Tennis Stars Lose in London; Johnston Still Remains LONDON, June 16.—Tiro Amer ican stars were eliminated in the fourth round of the London tennis championship tournament here to day. In the singles, Richard Norris Williams II was beaten by J, G. Richie. 2-6, 6-3. 6-3, and Charles F. Garland, Pittsburg, was beaten by A. Dudley, 6-3, 6-4, 4-6. Making his debat in the fourth match William Johnston, the Amer ican national champion, defeated Cunliffe, 7-5 and 6-0. Herzog Reinstated and He May Be Tried Out at First by the Cubs BQSTON, June 16. —Rain Tuesday in terrupted the new winning streak of the Cubs and produced time for a confer ence involving President Veeck, Manager Mitchell and Charles Herzog of the Cubs, who came here by request. At the'close or the confab it was an nounced that Herzog bad been rein stated by the Cub manager and would be in uniform, although not necessarily ir. the lineup of the next game. This does not eliminate the possibility of a trade being arranged for Herzog, but improves the chances of making one. Terry has made himself a fixture at second as long as he can keep up the gait he has been going, which was much faster than that set by Herzog this year. Neither can Herzog displace Hollocher nor Deal, so it looks as if he might be fmt in first base when he returns to the ineup. Big League Stuff Nicholson's homer in the ninth, with • runner on base, helped the Pirates to tie the score and pave the way to victory in the tenth yesterday. Janvrin's double In the ninth, after Heathcote and Stock had singled, gave the Cardinals a clean sweep over the Giants. Ten bases on balls handed to the Cleve land Indians by Mays, Collins and Mc- Graw, enabled the Forest City gang to mop up on the Yankees. The Reds regained first place by bat ting Pfeffer and Mitchell or the Dodgers out of the box.

PENN yr • MfllW yy?o CarpentiePs Move Rather Strange as Dempsey Is Freed Fans Want Action, but French' man Says He’s Going Back Home. By JACK VEIOCK. International News Sports Editor. NEW YORK, June 16.—1f Georges Car pentler really wants to fight Jack Demp sey the time has arrived for him to prove It. With the champion freed of slacker charges today the way has been paved for the signing of articles. It is time for a showdown on Carpentier’s part. News that Dempsey has been acquitted caused a noticeable stir in boxing circles here and it is certain that both boxers will be engulfed in anew tidal wave of offers. The International News Service is re liably informed that Dempsey stands ready to take on the Frenchman at any time. The champion wants to get back into the ring and that without any hag gling. But Carpectier’s intentions are uncer tain. The announcement that he is to sail for France early In July without en tering the ring In this country for n pro fessional contest has greatly detracted from his popularity. Francois Descamps, It Is said, has Eromlsed that Carpentler will return In eptember to go through with bis match with Battling Levinsky, but once the Frenchman leaves our shores there is doubt that he can be lured to return. ACQUITTAL OF CHAMP POPULAR NEW YORK June 16—Boxing fan dom in general seems to be pleased over ihe act pf the federal jury In removing the cloak of a “draft doeger" from Jack Dempsey. The champion proved himself at least a good sport in not trying to retaliate. He remained silent before his sccusers and asked only for a chance to lay his cards on the table. At stake was more than the cham pion’s name and his future. Upon the final result of the trial depends to a large part the success of efforts to put the boxing game on a high plane in the United States With the heavyweight champion of the world, an American, bebtnd the bare doing time for being a coward, foreign critics of the American game would have choice material with which to continue their attacks. It would have proven a severe handi cap aiso to tho International Sporting club and other organizations which have about reached the realization of their dreams to make boxing a worth while game in America. Acquittal of Dempsey will aiso sc-ve to clear some doubt s to the sincerity of Georges Carpenticr, who came over from France with the advertised purpose of meeting the champion. It will call for a showdown from the Frenchman. Carpentler and Deacamps are leav ing July 10 for France and will return in November, it is said. The Impression is general In fight cir cle* that if Dempsey doesn't get Car pentler before be leaves the Frenchman will never cornu back. Federal Agents Still on Lookout for Johnson at the Mexican Line TIA JUANA.

Touchdown! Touchdown! Members of the Indianapolis school board finally got their signals and-play# working In winning style last night and wdth a concentrated drive the high school pigskin was pushed over the line. Asa result Indianapolis again enters the intersehoiastic football field and next fall some of the spirit of days gone by will reappear. Manual, Shortridge and Technical are b&PPy, former students of these school* are happy and in fact the entire sport loving public is happy. It was ’a long, hard pull to bring the grid game back into the local high school athletic calendar, but It’s here at last and once more the enthusiastic cry of the pigskin chaser and rooters will be heard in scholastic halls and o’er foot ball fields. ACTION PROMISED COMING FALL. And when south side, north side and east side begin to mass their forces next fall there's going to be something for the grid fan to cneer about. Agitation to restore the game to In dianapolis was begun last fall by former Btudents of the local schools and by alumni of the various Indiana colleges. Through the winter the drive often ap peared to be forgotten whenever the school board met, but ignoring the Issue failed to stifle it and It kept coming un til the popular verdict was forthcoming. Shortly after representatives of In diana colleges had met here last fall to boost the plan to bring football back In the high school athletic rank, E. U. Graff, superintendent of public schools, appointed a committee composed of the three public high school principals, George Buck of Shortridge. E. H. Kem per McCornb of Manual and Milo H. Stewart of Technical, to investigate the advißibllity of restoring the game.
