GREATER NEW YORK EXCITED OVER PROSPECT OF SEEING SERIES STAGED WITHIN GATES
GOTHAM TAKES
LEAD AS SPOT
FOR BIG GAMES
With Both Dodgers and Yank
ees on Top, Big City Fans
Celebrate.
POINTERS ON THE RACES
BT H. C. KAJOLTOX,
International New* Service Correspondent.
NEXT YORK, Sept. 15.—New York had
visions today bf a personally conducted
world’s series following the climb of the
Yankees to first place in the American
jjttL gne and the continued even trend of
the Dodgers toward the championship of
the National League.
Neither the Giants nor the Reds could
take advantage of the Brooklyn reverse
yesterday, which left matters standing
just where they were when the Dodgers
gained their commanding lead two days
ago."
The ease with which- the Yankees
plastered the Cleveland and Detroit clubs
in their last five games gave great en
conragement to followers of that team's
fortune. Inability of Yank pitchers to
deliver in the past, it is believed, now
has become only a memory. Five out
of six games on the victory side o[ the
ledger Is a feat of great promise for the
Yankee adherents.
The tightest little race the American
League has seen in years is now a little
looser than for several days, due to the
jump of she Yankees into first place.
The teams stood today:
Won. Lost. Pet. To Play.
New York 88 53 .624 13
Cleveland 84 52 .618 18
Chicago 85 55 .607 14
New York and Chicago were to rest
today, but the Cleveland Indians were
to play a postponed game with the Ath
letics. ’ Tomorrow the Yankees go into
Chicago to take a last crack at the White
Sox. If they can take that hnrdle as
Impressively as they performed in Cleve
land and Detroit, New Yorkers will con
sider the pennant as good as won, even
though the Yankees are still booked for
an appearance against Jimmy Burke's
tronble-making Browns.
The Washington club, which has been
annoying the White Sox, will go to
Cleveland for a series beginning tomor
row.
The Giants were to loaf today, but the
Dodgers were to finish off their series
with the Cubs and the Reds were to meet
Philadelphia.
The Brooklyn lead ©Ter Cincinnati yes
terday was -so strong that nothing but
an absolute reversal of form can keep the
Dodgers out of the world's series. The ;
beating the Cubs gave them was the first
they have suffered in eleven games. j

INDIANA DAILY TIMES, 'WEDNESDAY; SEPTEMBER 13,1926.
INDIANS HOME
AFTER PUTTING
HENS ON SKID
\ \
Hoosiers Return in Fine Fettle,
but Bad Weather Mars Big
League Exhibition.
FAST FINISH INDICATED
Toting three victories out of the series
of four games at Toledo, Jack Hendrick’s
Indians returned home tyday feeling In
high spirits and ready to show some
thing against the Washington Americans
in a big exhibition contest at Washing
ton park this afternoon if the weather
man saw fit to permit the battle.
Grabbing the majority of games over
the Hens was a fine achievement for the
Hoosiers despite their setback at Louis
ville and the athletes now feel as if they
are due for a winning streak when the
Western clubs invade Washington park
for the last time, starting Saturday with
the champion Salntsf. No games are
carded at the park Thursday and Friday.
Manager Hendricks planned to give
Clark Griffith’s big leaguers plenty of
opposition this afternoon and, barring
bad yyeather, a big attendance was ex
pected to turn out for the exhibition.
Griffith brought his regulars here, among
them being Walter Johnson, Sam Rice,
Judge, Roth and the one and only Nick
Altrock, comedian ball player. Nick was
reported as having a full supply of funny
stunts and fans were anticipating an af
ternoon of joy.
Walter Johnson was expected to dem
onstrate his pitching prowess a few in
nings against the Indians if the ground
was not too wet, but the Hen
dricksmen were not fearful of his speed
and hoped to chalk up a few markers
on the twirling wizard. Frank Brower,
$15,000 home run hitter from the Inter
national League, also was with the Griff
men, and the fans were anxious to see
him try for a few distance clouts.
PETTY HURLS
TRIBE.TO VICTORY
TOLEDO, Sept. 15. —Southpaw Jess
Petty staged a comeback effort ia the
scries windup game yesterday and j
twirled the Indians to a 3-to-l victory
over the Hens. It made three out of
four for the Hoosiers and Toledo fans j
were given a severe shock as the last
contest was chalked up in the Tribe’s I
favor.
Petty was knocked out of the box Sun- i
oay. but be certainly showed the Hens
a few trick* yesterday and If It had rot
been for Ilam Hyatt's homo run hej
would have scored a shutout. The dr- j
cult drive came In the sixth Inning and;
It must be said that It was some clout.
Okrle started on the mound for Toledo j
and went along until the seventh, when
he was taken out for a pinch hitter and
McColl finished. Korea, Shin tiers, bnilth,
Rebg and Schrelber hit well for the Hoo
siers.
The Indians proved fine attraction
here, “more than 12,900 fans turning out
In the three day* to see Jack Hendricks j
grab most of the glory.
Jimmy Smith, Tribe infiolder. who had
trouble with Umpire McGloon Monday,
was back In the lineup yesterday and got \
bv without any further arguments with
the arbiters.

INDIANAPOLIS AT
CHICAGO SATURDAY.
Hennesser and Bastian, the Indianapo
lis team In the Intercity tennis series,
will meet Hayes and Burdick in Chlcago-
IndlanapoUs play at Chicago Saturday
afternoon, Hence*sey being paired with
Hayes and Bastian against Burdick lu
the singles, while the doubles will bo
Hennessey and Bastian vs. Hayes and
Burdick. , _ . .
A straight victory in the Saturday
matches will not only cinch this city’s
claim to the series championship, but
It wl'.l also probably have some effect
on the national rawing of Hennessey
for this year.
The Indianapolis youth, having played
through all district and Intercity
matches this year, meeting the best play
ers in this part of Ihe country, without
a defeat, and going Into the third round
of the national tournament to give
Roland Roberts a hard four-set fight be
fore taking defeat, deserves a high rank
ing on the country's list this year. Local
tennis authorities assert that he should
be placed between the first ten and fif
teen, which Is higher than any Hoosier
was ever listed.
The national officials will no doubt
take stock in Hennessey's play against
Haves Saturday. The Chicago veteran
ranked ninth on the country's list last
year and If Johnny can take his number
in thrir coming match, it will be hard
for them to keep him out of the ranking
limelight.
