FINAL CONTEST TOMORROW FOR INDIANS BEFORE TEAM DEPARTS ON SEASON’S LONGEST TRim MIDWEEK TWIN VICTORY GOAL OF TRIBESMEN Only One Game Left in Series * After Double Attraction With Hens. TUESDAY CONTEST WON Grabbing two in on# afternoon was the ambition of the Indians today when they stacked up against the Toledo Hens in the double attraction at Washington park this afternoon. Jones and Caret were the Tribe pitch ers slated for mound performance nnd due to the fact that |he fans were robbed of their customary entertainment last Sunday a large midweek attendance was expected out to witness the twin cardi The series stood eTen as the riral flubs took the field this afternoon e.nd a warm battle was anticipated. TRIBE SOT SO EAR KN REAR. ( The Hoosiers were wildly ambitious to cop two games and thereby break into another winning streak because it will take only a few more victories to put the team up within hailing distance of the second and third place clubs. After today only one more game is left in the series with the Hens, fol lowing which the Indians will depart on the longest road trip of the season. Jess Pettv eased through an S to 4 Ttctory for the Indians yesterday when the Tribesmen took a liking to the of ferings of King Brady and made most •f their hits count in the scoring. The locals got into the scoring in the first inning, counting three. They re peated the stunt in the fourth, and then followed with two in the fifth. The Hens grabbed one in the second, two in the fifth and one in the sixth. It was an afternoon of doubles, the Tribe getting four and the Hens a like number. SUPPORT STATS WITH PETTY. The Hens were close behind the locals in quantity hitting, but their blows were not as timely. Petty worked unusually hard and his support worked likewise, wtth the result that the Hens were left with only a loneshot chance that didn't develop Into anything worth while. Rookie Shlnners occupied center field for the Indians and demonstrated that be knows how to romp in the gardens. He also cut in with a two base hit. prov ing that Manager Hendricks tad the cor rect dope when he injected him into the lineup. Walter Rebg was at third base In place of Wolf, this change giving Shlnners a chance to break in. The victory yesterday gave the Indians eleven victories out of the last thirteen games played, 'which is quite a record and a worthy comeback. WASHINGTON PARK NOTES. Claude Derrick former Indian short stop. who recently was obtained by the Toledo Hens, reported to Manager Bres n&han today and was ready to don a uniform this afternoon. Mike Kelly, Hen first saeker. made a clever play on a throw from Korea in the seventh yesterday. It was necessary to take the ball with one band, and Mike delivered in spectacular fashion. The ball came between the runner and bag. but Mike shifted Just right and speared the pellet, retiring Heniine. Petty had trouble after two out in both the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth two singles and a double good for two Hen rues came after two out, aud in the sixth three singles and an error by Hen line produced a run after two Hens had been retired. Duke Rtlley nearly had three hits for the dav. In the sixth he crashed one that struck' Pitcher Brady. The drive would have gene directly over second had not Brady been hit. _ All the Indiana bit safely at least on< e, except Jimmy Smith. Rebg was not called ul>ii to disp'ay his infield ability, not having a chance. Herb Hunter, obtained from the Red Sox. has had infield experience ami may b# given a chance at third base when h? sets in shape. This may solve the ribe's big problem, if Hunter can play third in A. A. style, the Indians will be set. with the exception f the pitching staff, which needs one. and possibly two, additions because of the double-headers facing the team. Covington's two htts yesterday were both doubles. Pitcher Petty got himself a bit, driving in a run. BOXING $55,000 BID FOR DEMPSEY BOL T SYRACUSE. June 33.—Daniel E. MrMahon.

Bill Derry, an Indianapolis auto speed artist seeking dirt track fame, today en tered his Derry Special in the speed show carded at the fair grounds track Monday, July 5. Derry is just breaking into the racing limelight, making his debut in the game last year, but he has already proven himself a driver of no small amount of skill and daring and bids fair to work his way u pamong the brighter lights this year. The Derry Special was built fn a local automobile factory according to plans mapped out by Derry and he believes it will pass any dirt track speed wagon in this part of the country. Due to the fact that the fair grounds track is not yet open to the drivers. O. M. Jones has been sending-, hi# “four ninety" Chevrolet through dally rond tests and is well pleased with the speed it has been showing. L. F. Justice is still lookiug for a driver for his Oakland entry.

DOUBT RETURN OF FRENCHMAN Fans Believe Carpentier Is Going Home to Stay. By HENRY FARRELL, United Press Sports Editor. NEW YORK, June 23.—1 t used to be the well known Chinese puzzle that was hard to solve. It used to be n bard task to the equally well known Philadelphia lawyer. But the king of all bard guesses is the French puzzle facing the American fight fans. As embodied 'n Francois Descamps and Georges Carpentier, the French puzile is a baffler. Since their arrival in the United States “to udd Jack Dempsey to their list of victims,” both Frenchmen huve made so many contradictory state ments that they huve almost ceased to be considered. Ont, of charity and good sportsman ship Americans uro believing that through unfamiliarity with the English language the European champion and bis manager didn't know what they were paying when they voiced that frequent —“we will fight any time." While the world's champion was await ing trial the fans bore with Carpentier nnd considered his invasion of the studio, the stage aud the circus ling as a legitimate field for recouping a lost fortune. Then came the desire to see Carpen tier show something for the money that sport-loving Americans were pouring into his coffers Even if it did smell a mouse, the an nouncement of a fight with lowlnshy gave the impression that Carpentier was at least sincere in h!s promises to fight. But when the Frenchman called off the fight and announced hi# parry was re turning home in July the hands of fan dom went up Descauips said they would return in the fall to fight. But after so many con flicting stories the fans are allowed to place any construction on that state ment they desire. The lmprfualon right now in eastern circles is that Carpentier will never re turn If he gets away this time. NOT THIS YEAR NEW ORLEANS, June 23. Georges Carpentier will not tight Jack Dempsey this year. Jack Curley, who is hOre with the Frenchman, who boxed a Jour round ex hibition last night, satd that New York, because of its ni'leen-roYind law. tvoul* get the fight, if held, and not New Or leans, with its twenty-round Inw.

Recently he took a day off to get mar ried. lie found newly-wedded bliss so de lightful he overstayed his leave from the club twenty-four hours, whereupon tbe hard-boiled and unromantlc George Stallings fined him SPJ>. And Hank a war hf ”0, too. Seriously, it looks like a raw deal from a birdseye viewpoint.' MORE power is required to plow the fields of America than is used in all its factories. / In view of the decrease of man power on the farms, the importance of motor-power is demonstrated easily. With hand labor the time required to produce a bushel of wheat was a little over three hours. With improved machinery this has been reduced to ten minutes. Power machinery has multiplied the power of man eighteen times. The gasoline engine is the only power unit embracing all require ments for farm work. It looks as though it is up to gaso line to grub-stake society. For years hand-labor has been leav- - ing the farms and motor-power has been taking its place. Long ago the Standard Oil Com pany (Indiana) realized that if America was to maintain its boun teous crop production there must be close cooperation between the Company and the farmer; there fore, the Company proceeded to build up through the farm districts of the Middle West the most com plete system of distribution of oil products in the world. This delivery system with its 3,780 bulk stations, its 7,000 motor trucks and tank wagons, its 1,300 Service Stations, and its personnel of 10,000 trained men, could not be built up in a month or in a year. It is tiv> result of long and patient effort. This immense system for the pro duction and distribution (.yf gasoline and other petroleum products is complete, installed and in full oper ation now, when it is needed as never before.
