Jack Hendricks’ Indians had their
last chance today to grab ona lone vic
tory from the Champion Saints out of
the series of four and the fans were
hoping that the Hooslers would pull
themselves together at least for the final
tilt with the Kelleyites.
With the departure of the Saints to
night final preparations will be made at
the park for the coming of Babe Ruth,
home run king, tomorrow and indica
tions point to the plant being packed
when baseball’s greatest hero comes to
the city to give the fans here a dem
onstration of distance hitting.
Ruth will not be the only prominent
one with the Yankee party, because a
number of other stars whose names are
familiar to fans the country over will
b with him. Pipp, Pratt, Pecklnpaugh,
Lewis, Meusel and others of the New
York American League Club will par
ticipate In the exhibition, and it’s going
to be a real game, because the Indians
mean to slip over a victory on the big
leaguers If possible.
In the St. Paul windup fracas today
Rogge was slated for mo and duty, and
if Big Clint was right and supported
properly he stood an excellent chance
of copping.
In the thirl struggle cf the series yes
terday the Champions won, 6 to 2, the
Indians again poor baseball.
Potty started on the mound for the !
Tribesman, and only tkiough sup
port was he scored on in the early la- |
nings, but later the Saints found his
offerings and drove him from the box. I
Cavet then took up the hurling, and |
after one run had been scored off him j
he settled down and held the Champions
off. The tall southpaw was guilty of a
rank boner on the bases, however, when j
he permitted himself to be cut down ,
at tie plate In the fifth inning, thereby !
checking a rally started by the home
club.
Reese Williams hurled for the Saints j
and, though he was not much of a puz- j
zle. the Hooslers were able to do only
slight damage, scoring only in the sixth j
and seventh.
An error by Kores permitted the Saints
to get their first marker in the opening
1 inning and a “boot” by Schreiber was j
responsible for the visitors’ second
marker in the second frame.
In the third inning the Saints earned
two runs and repeated! with two in the ■
fourth when McMenemy got a lucky home
run off Cavet after Boone had tripled off
Petty.
Both of the Tribe's runs were earned,
Gossett driving Rehg over and Cavet
sending Korea home.
Boone, with two triples and a single,
was the hitting star of the day.

George Orme Taking
Stab at Big League
Berth With Red Sox
Indianapolis has added another act to
baseball’s “big show.”
George Orme, for several years one of
Indiana’s leading amateur and semi-pro
ball players, has been sold to the Boston
Americans by the Branford club of the
Michigan-Ontario League, and is making
a big hit with Manager Ed Barrows and
the members of the Boston team.
Orme reported to the Red Sox Sept. 3.
He has not yet had the opportunity to
play a full game, but has been used in
several games for two and three innings
at a time, and as a pinch hitter he has
shown that his sticking eye is still with
him by getting at least one hit each
game he has had a chance to perform In
the big show.
At Detroit last Friday, the Premiers,
several of them Orme's old team-mates,
on their way to Flint, stopped off for
the Boston-Detroit game, and saw the
Indianapolis boy get a hit, a walk and
steal one base in his three chances with
the club. Orme has also lived up to
expectations in the field and Barrows
believes that after a trip south with the
team next spring he will be about ready
to bust in for a regular Job.
Early in the season Orme was sent
to Milwaukee by a Mint League Club,
but that time he did not belong to the
nclub that sent him and he was called
back by Branford.
When Orme left Branford he was lead
ing the Mint League in base-stealing
and was right up with the leaders in
the hitting and fielding departments.
Tech Books Newcastle
Grid Game for Oct. 15
Athletic Director Fred Gorman of
Technical High school today announced
anew game on the Green end White
card, that with Newcastle at Newcastle
Oct. 15. With the arrangement of this
game only one open date remains on the
schedule of the east side team, thla be
ing Oct. 8, the opening date.
Tech Is to play that game here and
Gorman states that Kirklin High School
probably will be the opposing team, al
though nothing definite Is known as yet.
Manual also has one open date, the
last es the season, and Athletic Director
Ammwman is trying to find a team that
will book the Red and White away from
home.
; *7 '
more International League team. He was
later transferred to the Boston American
league Club and last winter he was sold
to the New York American League Club
for $123,000, the largest sum ever paid
for the transfer of a ball player.
Ruth holds all long distance baseball
hitting records. Last season he first
broke the major league home run record
when he smashed out twenty-nine circuit
clouts, and this season, up to today, he
had forty-nine home runs to hl credit
for the summer. In addition has
broken the major league scoring record,
having passed Ty Cobb's mark yesterday
when ho crossed the plate for the 148th
time this season.
Ruth is also a crack pitcher, but doee
outfield fluty regularly now because ot
his hitting ability. One season with Bos
ton he led the American League twlrlers
easily, Ms southpaw slants winning the
Red Sox many games.
The big fellow is traveling over the
country like a circus now. The players
and band boys travel together, using
four coaches, and when Babe and his kid
musicians go on parade there certainly
is something doing. St. Mary’s school
is striving to raise a fund to rebuild
a/ter a disastrous fire and during the
band’s present travels collections are
taken up to aid the cause.
The boys are dressed sailor fashion
and they do their parts In fine style.
The Knights of Columbus will hare them
in charge while here and see that they
are well taken care of. Hue to the fact
that the G. A. R. parade Is to be held to
morrow morning arrangements have been
made to Include Ruth's band In it and
it will lead the Maryland delegation of
the G. A. R,
FULL CONTEST
TO BE PLAYED.
Ruth and his party will reach the city
early tomorrow morning and depart to
morrow evening at 5:40. giving the two
ball teams plenty of time to stage a nine
inning game by starting the contest at
2:30.
The Indianapolis club officials are re
sponsible for bringing the home run king
here, it being their desire to give the
Tribe patrons an opportunity to see the
famous slugger in ac'Nn at no advance
In Washington Park pi.ees. Vice Presi
dent Smith was forced to outbid several
other cities in order to clinch the per
formance, but he took the big chance on
the weather and secured the engagement.
Old fans und young fans have b* t en ex
cited ever since the date was secured and
people are coming here from all over the
State to see the swatsmltb In action.

BOXING |
DEMPSEY MUST
FIGHT CONTENDER
BOSTON, Sept. 21.—The Massachusetts
boxing commission today refused to
grant a permit for a ten-round boxing
contest between Jack Dempsey and Bill
Brennan of Chicago here.
The application was made by Larry
Conley. Carl Barrett, one of the commis
sioners, said that no permit for a Demp
sey bout In Massachusetts would be
granted unless the champion met a log
ical contender for the title. The commis
sion had previously refused a permit for
a Dempsey-Moran bout.
OFFERS MADE CARPENTIER.
CHICAGO, Sept. 21.—1 t would not be
surprising if Georges Carpentler, the
European champion, appears in this sec
tion of (he country before he meets
Champion .Tack Dempsey. Two clubs,
the National, operated by Frank Mulkern
of Milwaukee, and the Twin Cities, bossed
by George Oswego of East Chicago, to
day sent offers to Carpentler, and both
want him to meet Tony Melichar of Chi
cago.
Both Mulkern and Oswego guaranteed
the Frenchman 325,000, and Carpentler
can get the data.

OTHER MAJOR POINTERS
Major Pennant Dope
Following are all the games it Is pos
sible for the pennant contenders In the
American and National leagues to play
this year:
AMERICAN LEAGUE.
Cleveland—With Boston, 1; with
Chicago, 3j with St. Louis, 4; with
Detroit, 4; Total, 12.

Brooklyn is five and n half games
ahead of New York and seven and a half
ahead of Cincinnati.
The most crucial of crucial series Is
yet to be played. If approximately the
same distance Is placed between the
White Sox and Indiana today or tomor
row, the American League pennant Is
very likely to be decided In the series
ot three games between these two teams,
which starts Thursday In Cleveland.
in view of the fact that Cleveland la
playing Boston and Chicago is enter
talnlng the Athletics, some of the gap
between the clubs may even be whittled
down, for the dope Indicates that Cleve
land stands a much better chance ot
being beaten by the Red Sox than do
; the White Sox at the hands of the Con
nie Mack outfit Also, Chicago has been
making a firm and decided stand on the
home lot.
The Yankees are not out of the race
yet, considering merely the figures. They
are R game and a fraction In the rear
of the White Sox, who are about the
same distance back of tne Speakerites.
