Two Victories Over Colonels
Monday Sees Old Confi
dence Return.
Tribe fans today felt a spark of first
diTision hope still burning for their fa
vorite Indians as the team sped on It*
way from Louisville to Kansas City to
open Its second Invasion of the western
half of the circuit.
The success of the Hoosiers in grabbing
both games at Louisville Monday, 4 to
2 and 8 to 5, acted like an exploding fire
cracker under the crestfallen Tribe fans
and now local rooters are debating how
short a time It will be before Jack
Hendricks leads his athletes into the flret
As the club stands now It is even with
Louisville and Columbus and not far be
hind Milwaukee, so if the team can wal
lop the tail-end K. C. Blues In the series
opening tomorrow it will be In a good
position to creep up and pass the
Os course anything can happen, but
Htaler fans are figuring on only good
things happening, hence the bright out
It was Colonel fans’ turn to feel the
sting of defeat Monday and they cer
tain!’' did get a severe burning.
Following the Colonels’ double defeat
of the Indians Sunday, the Louisville
rootera were yelling like wild men over
the drooping Hoosiers, but the worm
turned Monday and when the Indians had
finished the day the Colonel followere
lire ready to keel over and remain still
the summer. If reports from Louis
ville arc correct.
First the teams battled in the morning
and the Indians wou behind the effective
pitching of Jones. Then the afternoon
straggle came on and by the time the
late innings rolled around the betting
wa about 5 to 1 that Louisville would
cop. The Colonels had a four-run lead
before the Tribe got under way.
In the seventh the Indians tied the
count and repeated in the eighth when
the Colonels dared to grab the lead again
in their half of the seventh.
Then the ninth came and the final k. o.
for Colonel hopes. With one out Smith
tingled and Cmvet doubled. Retliey was
walked and Covington, batting for Wolf,
forced Smith at the plate.
This left the bases filled and two out.
Honter came up at this point and whaled
out a triple, cleaning the sacks and giv
ing the Indians the necessary runs to

and although dazed, refused to take the
Leonard saw White was badly stunned

his weakened opponent. White was
knocked down four more times, once go

main In the ring a quarter of an hour

city championship tournament was to be
resumed on the Hawthorn courts at 3
o'clock this afternoon, weather permit
ting, and the semi-final round battles In
the Indiana boys’ and junior champion
ship* were carded on the Indianapolis
Tennis association courts, starting at 9
o’clock this morning.
The curtain was raised on the city title
show at Hawthorn yesterday and some of
the classiest early round matches In the
history of the event were offered the fans.
Galpln, who drew a bye In the first round,
defeated Caldwell in the second, 6-3, 6-0,
and hopped up on the third roost by a
6-1, 6-3 victory over Bill Erwin.
The Kobn-Hendrleks and Cox-Born
steln matches were the big attraction*
yesterday. Kohn defeated Hendricks
after three sets of fast going, 6-1, 4-0,
6-3. Tommy was a little off in his sbots
in tha first set, but came back with
plenty of stuff and victory in the second.

ford were to clash, Dixon was to meet
Sagalowsky and Davidson was to meet
the winner of the Brafford-Huessing
Much Interest centered in the semi
final play in the Junior division and the
dope called for two hard-fought matches,
with no big favorites on the hoards.
Petrovltaky, 1919 Junior champ, has a
big shade In age and experience over
Orme. this being the latter’s first year
as a Junior, and there were qnlte a few
who believed he would go Info the finals.
However, “Pete" has not been playing a
lot of tennis this year and Orme, who
Is In great shape, was determined to shoot
him over with the let* fortunate*.
Ankenbroek, a Brookslde park player,
looks like the find of the season. He i
ha* been playing bang-up tannls in the ■
tournament, defeating all comer* with
out half trying, and aoma of the deep
thinking dope handlers have stamped him
the 1920 champion. Horun Is ulso a
clever youngster with the racquet, and
well abble to take care of himself In tha
fsstest Junior company.
Sagalowsky la the choice for boys' title
bearer. He is swinging a mean ‘'bat"
this year, going better than ever before, I
and he will put everything be has in his
next two fights.
The finals In this tourney will be
sandwiched In between the city tourna
ment matches at Hawthorn tomorrow af

Koehring, the Canoe club star, dis
tance man. scored 15 points, winning first
in the halt mile, mile and two-mlle event.
The meet was witnessed by a large
crowd and every event was hard fought.
The event that aroused most interest,
however, did not count points. That race
was the 440-yard dash, open to boys
•nder 14 years.
Thirty boys lined up on the track.
Four, who were exceptionally small, were
given a handicap Three of these were
given fifteen yards, and one Kenneth
He.vdon, 7 years old, 7 North Jefferson
avenue, son of the former baseball plhy
er, was given twenty yards. ,
If any of the big boys thought they
had a chance to run over Kenneth they
hnd another thought coming for that
“baby" won fourth place and finished
ahead of twenty-six larger boys. So
pleased were the officials of the meet
with the wonderful performance of
"Baby" Ileydon, that a special gold
medal will be presented to the boy.
While It was little Heydon who got
the applause, still the running of Ger
ald GUI, a long legged youngster, who
won-first, stamped that boy as a future
champion. He outclassed the field from
start to finish and has more natural
ability as a footracer than any boy of
Ills size seen on a track in this city In
many years.
The medals will be awarded the suc
cessful contestants Saturday morning at
the City hall.
