DOUBLE-HEADER TOMORROW INCLUDED IN PRESENT SERIES WITH BRESNAH AN f S TOLEDO CLUJ TRIBE STRIVES TO JUMP BACK ON WIN STRIDE With Middleton Out of Way Indians See Bright Chance. HENS SCORE SHUTOUT Hoping for a quick recovery ont of their Mendaj gliimp the Indians today fared the Toledo Hens In the second game of the series. •Tones or Petty was slated to hurl against the gang from the Mattntee end from the outcome of the contest Mon day it was that it would take high-class pitching to stop the invader* this afternoon. Manager Hendricks planned a change in the lineup today in an effort to In crease the Tribe's hitting strength. Rehg was to return to third base and Shlnners sent to centerfield. This change eliminates Wolf, who has been holding down third base, but who ba* not been batting along with the other Indians. Third base has been the one outstand ing weak spot iq the Indian's lineup since Ollie O'Mara pulled his priae boner, when he hopped to the outlaws and un less O'Mara is permitted to return to the fold shortly it wiU be up to the Tribe management to go out and get a third baseman by either purchase, trade or any other means. The Indians bumped Into the Hens Monday, when the visitors were right on their stride and It was quite impossible for the Tribe to get any place. The score was 6 to 0. Jimmy Middleton was on the mound for the Hens and he was In such grand form that the Indians collected only six scattered hits. In five of the nine innings the Indians 41d not get a man on fieet base. The Hoosler* had their beet chances to score in the first, eighth and ninth Innings, but Middleton was too strong and they were forced to suffer a shutout. Therefore, with Middleton out of the way. the Indians see a chance In the series. * Around the A. A. j * 1 —WITH EDDIE ASH— ' Rogge was not np to form and the Hns collected eleven hits. Dx-er was the chief slugger with two doubles and a slngl®. He also drew two walk*. Mike Kellv got In the game when Wichland re'tlred In the third. “Ou Mike" got two hits. The visitors scored one marker in the first round, one in the third and three tn the sixth. In their big inning they got three singles and a walk. With the aid of Tribe errors their three runs came without much difficulty. Fox. sub Toledo shortstop, made him self prominent by getting two hits. Sehreiber and Rehg each got two safe ties out of the few made off Middleton. Roger Bresnahan rejoined his club last night. Roger bad been detained on the road but was expected to display his enstomarv explosive tactics at the park this afternoon. That victory yesterday placed the Duke of Toledo in better humor. Joe Kelley, New York Yankee scout, is here with the Hens. Joe usually is found in the Hen vicinity whenever Roger is absent. "Our Mike” Kelly takes keen delight in beating his home town team. Mike's arm is still bad„ but he manages to hold up his end of the game and he usually hits hard against tho Indians. The Hens have plenty of players, and it is said there is some doubt about the team living up to the A. A. player limit. Ben Dyer is ft whale of an A. A. ball player, especially when he is at Wash ington park. Intruding today’s game there are fonr games remaining in the present series. A double-header will be staged tomorrow. The ra'n Sunday evidently threw the Tribe off its stride. Lack of pep was noticeable when the Indians took the field yesterday. At-any rate the Indians attracted wide attention by winning eight straight. Schreiber la giving signs of coming •>ut of his batting slump, but Jimmy Smith seems to have fallen Into one. According to n statement given out in Chicago last night President Hickey of the American association agrees With Kan Johnson in the Ollie O'Mara case, and as a result the Indianapolis club probably will have a fight on its bands in its effort to get O'Mara reinstated. O'Mara has been barred for five years, along with Evans of Kansas City, Wag ner of Columbus and a few other Jump ers, according to Hickey's reported in terpretation of the recent jumping rule, arid instead of trying to favor the clubs hit if Icoks as if Hickey intends to line up with the other baseball rulers and shout for the extreme baseball penalty. Owner Smith of the Indians was at work today attempting to plan a fight that would bring O’Mara back, and It is possible that he will go to the courts for aid. O'Mara has written both the national commission and the Indianapo lis elub asking for reinstatement. Smith did not suspend O'Mara. and for that reason he believes that he linn a right to use Ollie. He has much money tied up in the player and doesn’t feel like being robbed of both player and finances. The baseball rulers did not offer to re imburse the Indianapolis club, but sim ply ruled O'Mara Ineligible. o%ner Smith Is getting tired of holding the sack. Outfielder Arnold Rtatz, whom the Tribe was to obtain In the O'Mara deal with the Red Sox before the National commission knocked the deal In the head by outlawing O’Mara, has been re leased to the Los Angeles club, accord ing to a Boston announcement. The Paints added n few more points to their standing yesterday by wallop ing the trailing Blues. The Millers blanked the Brewers and the rain blanked both Colonels and Sen ators. Now the Saints are trying to slip something over. According to a South ern association report. Infielders Martin and Smith, property of the Saints, have been traded to Atlanta for In fielder Brazill. It seems that the Saints over looked the matter of asking waivers on Martin and for that reason Manager Hendricks of the Indians today sent a wire to President Hickey demanding an investigation. The Tribe Is in need of an lnfielder and doesn’t mean to stand dumb while Infielders are shipped out of the league without Indianapolis being given Its chance to act. Jap Martin Is a capable ball player and Hendricks mans to go after Jiim if the Sai"ts have been found cheating.

Smith and Seaton Out of Game Fending Appeal by the Southern League MEMPHIS, June 22.—Under an agree ment reached at a meeting of the board of directors of the Southern associa tion “Casey” Smith and Tom Seaton, pitchers signed by Little Rock after their release by the San Francisco club of the Pacific Coast league, will not ap pear in uniform as members of the Lit tle Rock club pending final adjudica tion of the appeal taken by President Martin from a decision in federal court here which made it mandatory that he approve Smith's contract with the Little Rock club.

TRIALS START 1 FOR OLMYPIC Sectional Meets on Saturday— Notre Dame Strong. By HENRY FARRELL, United Press Sports Editor. NEW YORK, June 22.—With Bab® Ruths, Johnstons and Tildens, Gardners and Hagens and Dempseys and Carpen tiers fighting for the sport top, th® American Olympic team has been lost sight in the rush of sport. The aspirants for Uncle Sam's team, however, will come out of the dust this week where they have been hidden and take a place in the first file. The sectional trials for the team sched uled Saturday in Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans and Pasadena will put through the first sorting-out process what perhaps will be the largest numbef of candidates in history. From the results of the Intercollegiate track meets, it seems probable that M|f| team ‘will be constituted largely of colP lege stars. Pennsylvania, winner of the intercolle giate championship, probably will have the largest representation with a good chance for landing six stars on the team. Notre Dame looks good for a delega tion of four and California and Stanford may land three on the team. The New York Athletic club most likely will have the largest club representation. With an army transport at its disposal the American committee will not be. re stricted in the selection of team. With facilities for taking a team of 230 to 300 to Antwerp, the ohances for “dark horses” are unusually good. Selection of u coach and trainer for the team is a duty the committee is set* ting aside until a later day.
