TRIBE HAS BRIGHT CHANCE TO GAIN MORE A. A. GROUND DURING THE TOLEDO SERIEm Indians enter HEN CAMP AND WORRY ROGER Toledo Fans Howl for Bresna han to Trip Up Rush ing: Hoosiers. WHITEY AGAIN STARS TOLEDO, June 29.—With the appeaf ance of the galloping Hoosiers in town today the Hen fans prepared to witness the start of a warm series. Ths Hendricksmen have been coming so fast of late that the followers of the local club fear Roger Bresnahan’s gang will be pulled down in the race and they are shouting for Roger to do something. The beating the Indians handed the Senatprs in Columbus has convinced ev eryone here that Jack Hendricks is ham mering his way to the first division and if not stopped suddenly it is a certainty that he will take his team to third posi tion In short order. The Tribe pilot stated this morning that he would use Clint Rogge on the mound in the series opener this after noon. The Hens defeated Rogge at In dianapolis recently and the big fellow was anxious to turn the Hens back today. The Indians today were only a fraction of a point back of the Colonels and a Tribe victory today and a Colonel defeat will put the Hoosiers in fifth place in the A. A. race. If both Indians and Colonels win this afternoon the club will stand even, be cause Indianapolis has played fewer games than Louisville. WHITEY ALLOWS ONLY FOUR HITS COLCMBUS, 0.. June 29. —The Indians left here last night with four out of five games hooked to their belts and the Sen ators were still dizzy today over the beating they suffered. Southpaw Whitehouse faced them on the mound yesterday and the Hoosier lefty allowed only four hits, winning S to 2. The Tribesmen hammered out thirteen hits and won with eae after they had got their machine working. The locals held the Hoosiers even for the first few innings but the consistent attack of the Indians soon broke down the Clymer defense. The batting streaks of Walter Rehg of the Indians and Grover Hartley of the Senators both were broken in the game. Rehg had hit safely in nineteen games and Hartley in eighteen. Columbus fans were amazed at the great comeback the Indians displayed here and many predictions have been made that Jack Hendricks has his ath letes keyed up to an early invasion of the first division.

Big League Stuff The Cincy Reds threw a gloom over the Cards’ first-place hopes temporarily yesterday when Pat Moran’s gang won, 7 to 5. The Cuffs came to life and grabbed a doable bill from the Pirates. The ulnnlng marker of the second game was forced over by a base on baUs. Mamaux struck out eleven Braves, but failed to win and the Dodgers floundered again. The Giants got twenty hits and eighteen runs off Philly huriers. George Kelly crashed a homer with tb bases jammed. The Athletic came out of their los ing streak for a day and defeated Washington. The Mackmen had dropped eighteen in a row before turning. The Tigers again were swamped, the White Sox winning by a wide margin. Tbe Cleveland Indians continue to rnCMp. They trimmed the ambitious Browns yesterday when .Timmy Burke's outfit played loose baseball. Babe Ruth was checked for the day when his club remained idle aloqg with the Red Sox. Jeff Jones, strong batting first base man of Harvard university, Monday agreed to play with the Philadelphia Athletics and will report to Manager Connie Mack at once. Admitting the charge that they threw pop bottles at Umpire Klem during the Cincinnati-St. Louis National league baseball game In Cincinnati Saturday, Joachim Renzegehausen and Fred Roose, two fans, were fined $25 and costs each, in police court in Cincinnati yesterday. The feat of making six hits in six times at bat in one game, performed in Philadelphia Monday by Shortstop David Bancroft of the New York Nationals, has been equaled In the major league only once sinee 1502. In 1915 George Cutshaw of the Brooklyn Nationals succeeded in hitting the ball safely In six attempts. Three players equaled the mark in 1902 and nearly a score previous to that time. The best batting record is seven hits In seven tries, made in 1592 by Wilbert Robinson of the Baltimore Nationals, now manager of the Brooklyn Nationals. Bets on Two Horses to Win in Same Race and Cashes Both Tickets CHICAGO. June 29. —Max Kronman of this city has just returned from a va cation spent at I.atonia. While there he set a record by betting on two horses to win in the same race and cashing both tickets. It happened like this: Kronman liked and played Miss Jemina. Then he be gan to fear Sewell Coombs, and decided tc protect himself with a show bet. By mistake Kronman went to a straight instead of a show mutuel wn rhlne. and found himself with two tick ets on different horses to win. The horses ran a dead beat, whi'h happens about once a year, and Kron jnan cashed both tickets. Baseball Calendar and Standings HOW THEY STAND. AMERICAN ASSOCIATION. W. L. Pct.| W. L. Pet.

ONE OF SEASON’S FIZZLES TWO GLIMPSES OF CARL MAYS. The signing of Pitcher Carl Mays by the Yanks last season provoked one of the biggest baseball wars in history. The Yank owners went the limit in hiring le gal talent to fight for Mays He was figured on to help Babe Ruth and the other high-priced Yankees win a flag for New York. But Mays has failed to show his ex pected form this season. Hl* failure to win regularly has been a blow to the Yanks, although they are fighflng for the lead despite his failure to come through. America's Olympic Stock Given Boost by College Talent Work in Collegiate and Ama teur Games Arouses Mew Hopes for Victory. By JACK VKIOCK. NEW YORK, June 29.—President Gus- In ter national News Sports Editor. tavua i iv.io.v and Uie members of the American Olympic committee are more optimistic now than evr before that the American Olympic team will triumph at Antwerp. The performances of some of this country greatest college athletes in re cent games—the Penn relays and the In tercollegiate track and field champion ships—have given the stock of America's athletes a tremendous boost. Following the recent Intercollegiate games President Kirby expressed tho opinion that an American team made up entirely of college athletes, would stand a grand chance of winning the Olympic games. This was a rather broad state ment. but it was not made carelessly by any means. And when one figures that, in addi tion to the brilliant track and field stars now wearing the colors of our many col leges and universities, we have a host of amateur athletic club stars of the caliber of Joie Ray Loren Murchison, Matt Mc- Grath Pat Ryan and a host of others it is easy to see why the members of the Olympic committee are wearing satisfied smiles. CRACK MEN CROP OK SPRINTERS. Our newest crop of sprinters, such as Kirksey of Leiand Stanford, Paddock of California. Scholz of Missouri, Leconeym of Lafayette, Wells of Stanford, Gourdln of Harvard. Dewitt of Rutgers and a number of others, will fairly burn up the track in the 100 and 220 dash events against the tyetit men now affiliated with the country's great athletic clubs: men of the caliber of Willie Hayes of Boston and Hank Williams of Spokane It E. Brown, winner of the 100 and 220 dashes in the recent intercollegiate games, will not be enabled to compete In the Olympic tryouts because of going to England with the Tiger team for the meet with Oxford and Cambridge. In the middle-distance events Joie Rav is expected to stand out promi nently in the final trials at Cambridge. But despite the apparent edge held by Ray over a field of brilliant collegiate rivals, he will find opposition stiff enough to spur him on to new records, with such performers as Earl Eby Max am and Gustafson, of Penn.; Driscoll, of Boston; Mayer, of Cornell; Spoot, of California, and many ethers. Thp college men have an apparent edge in the hurdles both high and low. It is to be regretted, however, that Earl Thompson, the brilliant Canadian lad who curried (he colors of Dartmouth to victory and established anew world s record of 14 2-5 seconds In the high hurdles at the Intercollegiate*. cannot compete with the American team. However,, in Smith, of Cornell: Erd man, of Princeton; Johnson, of Michi gan; Kelly, of New York; Sylvester, of Missouri; Wells of Leiand Stanford; Watt, of Cornell; Ellis, of Syracuse, and a number of other stars, our timber toppers will surely be able to do some thing in the point-winning line when thev get to Antwerp though they will probably find Thompson wearing Cana da's colors, just as swift as ever in straddling the wood. DISTANCE TALENT IS HIGH CLASS. The long-distance races, with such runners as Faller, of Dorchester, Mass.; Pores, of New York: Simmons, of Syra cuse; Dresser former Cornell and ex coliegiufe champion; H. H. Brown, of Williams: MacMahon, of M. I. T. and Komig, of Penn. State, not to mention a host of western distance men, will de velop some great competition in the trials at Cambridge. That America will be strong in both the weights and Jumps is a certainty. Smart, of Chicago; Landers, of Penn.; Gourdln, of Harvard ; Templeton, of Le iand Stanford; Merchant of California, and Way, of Penn. State will be strong contenders in the broad jump. In the high Jump London, of Yale; Templeton and Ramsay, of Cornell; Murphy, of the Multnomah A. C.; Rich ards. of Utah; Whalen, of Boston; Lar sen. of Utah and Lathrop of Cornell, will probably be jumping like grey hounds within a few more w/eeks; and Landon who cleared 6 feet 4 inches for anew collegiate record at Philadelphia in the recent games, is expected to bet ter that mark. Landers, of Penn.; Harwood, of Har vard; Jordan, of Dartmouth; Frank Foss, of Chicago; Peterson, of Califor nia and many others will compete in the pole vault this month. ’ That new Amerieau records will be made when the final games are staged at Cambridge is predicted by a majority of the athletic sharps. GOLF LEADER INJURED. NEWARK, W., June 29. —William Burke, golf club 1 manufacturer of Newark and widely known throughout the coun try among golfers, was badly hurt and Mrs. Burke, his vpife, was killed In an automobile accident near here last night.

The following clipping from a Pan Francisco paper was sent to us by Tom my Lynch, who was much interested In Champion Dempsey's case: Mrs. Celia Dempsey. Jack Dempsey's mother -little, whltehalrcd, bent, wrin kled with age, gnarled by life and tem pered by sorrow so that the lines of her suffering showed in her face, fine tooled by emotion, took the stand. Out of the nausea engendered by the taste of other things her coming was wel come. The biggest dramas of life are its sim plicities. Mrs. Dempsey was utterly sim ple. She had no studied art, no part to play, no role to enact. She was Jack Dempsey’s mother. Her boy was in dan ger. All through the case, while the fabric of the prosecution had been built against him, she sat with fingers that twisted incessantly and eyes that burned. She wanted to speak. Now that her turn to speak had come her voice fal tered with sheer fear that she would not be able to do her best. "A good boy? Certainly, Jack was a good boy. Since he was 14 years of age, awny back in the years, he bad worked, and worked hard." There was a moth er’s pride in the way she Bald it that went home with the Jury. The family was poor— had always been poor and It had been a struggle. There were many chil dren. In 1917 and 1918—war years—the struggle had been particularly hard. They could not have managed, she said, bad not Jack sent them money. "We wouldn't have had anything," she said, and it was left to imagination to determine Just how little they did have. Bit by bit, in her trembling voice, Mrs. Dempsey built up a structure of history behind the case. No one bared to tear it down. No one doubted its authentic ity. Some of the biggest legal battles In the world have been lost because of something like that—simple, little old woman telling what she believes with her soul is the truth and carrying the con viction over as can nothing else. On Jack’s shoulders fell the burden of his family, said Mrs. Dempsey. Other brothers had married and had families, and they had their own burdens. He had taken cure of the “old folks"—of “mumsey” and "dad,” as he calls them. How well he did this, she declared with pride, was shown in the fact that In two years he had bought two houses for her and had given the family $37,000 —this world's champion whom the government asserts lied when he said he had de pendents. Local Poloists at Dayton The Indianapolis Polo club's team to day was scheduled to play its first game abroad when It met the Miami Valley Hunt team at Dayton, 0., this after noon. A second game will be played between the two teams at Dayton Wednesday afternoon. Indiannpolis defeated the Dayton team in the two games introducing polo In Indianapolis recently. PETROVISKY TO DEFEND TITLE 1919 Junior Net Champ in Play This Year. Milton Petrovlsky, 1919 Indiana junior tennis champion, will defend his title in the boys and Junior tournament card ed to open on the Indianapolis Tennis association courts tomorrow. Petrovlsky. who played great tennis to win his laurels last year only to be robbed of a chance to play In the na tional tourney, due to a misunderstand ing and juggling of dates, has been snowing class with the racquet this season and is doped to repeat. CLASSY TALENT LISTED FOR FLAY*. However, ’’Pete” will have no easy task on his hands when he s“ts sail on lhe I. T. A. courts. A record list of classy youngsters are entered In Junior play, many of them stepping up from the boys' division this season, and tney will put up a grand scrap for honors. The fang who think they have things figured Just about right are looking for Dick Mills, Hence orme, Jr.; Louis Sa galowsky, Russell Klrke and Dick Hen nessey to step in among the star per formers this year Young Orme won the hoy’s champion ship last year.
