Johnny Kllbane has been feather

has always fought on the level, never
sidestepped an opponent, and never was
mixed up in brawls like many other
champs have been.
Kilbane has seen many a champion
pass on, too. Since he won his title the
following champs have been dethroned#
Jack Johnson, Jess Willard. Ted Lew

The only t wo American contestants—
MaJ. IMdoJph Schroeder, flying in a
Fnited army airplane, and Howard
M. Rlnehard*, flying in's Dayton-Wright

the race in its early stages.
Schroeder had too much gna' for the
exhaust pipes of his plane and he feared
it would be set on tire, f/e landed at
2:55 o’clock and was officially disqualified
for failing to pass the first turning
point. /
Rineharrtt could not .see clearly and
was unable to control the direction of

dropping out of the race, re entered mere

The <locn Colas Aook the odd game
from the Brunswick Phonographs, and
might have won ail three, but Woody
roiled tip his sleeves in the last game,
and the soft drink boys were forced to
listen to' a brand new record.
The Oolitic Stones won two from ths
South Sides and still remain in a tie for
first place with the Coca Colas, wtth eight
wins and one loss.
With Bailer ( and Claraan in their line
up the Williamson Candies won all three
from the Times.
Harry Kries says, “It's, a might poor
worm that wouldn't turn sometime.”
Result, the Wadley's lost all three when
Harry adjusted his skids in the proper
time.
“Cereal” Doyle had hfs Habichs fight
ing all the way and the Western Fnlons
forgot to forward that telegram; now
they have three'' more added to their
lost column.
“Champ” Hebble seems to have found
his eye, as has Frpd Schleimer, sto watch

McCollum tried hard, but the rest of
the Times boys wouldn't give him any
help. Better luck next time, "Mack.”
Katon of the Phonographs says the
ride with Beapi put him in fine shape—
sa he led the league with SSI. Doyla
tied him for single game honors with

Rules for 1920 Season
With the coll for football candidate*

sport begins to draw mention.
Th# principal change* In the 1920 foot-'
ball rales may be summarized briefly as
follows Clipping is forbidden, whether
or not the bail it. dead, if done to a men
obviously out of play; roughing the for ;
ward passer le considered unnecessary,
roughness if committed after the pass,
has been made; the punt* out Is ahoHs'.ied,

of field may bring ball out straight In i
front of goal for (he try at goal; both;
referee and lineman are charged wtth
duty of watching /nan in motion before

after he has gone to his position; sub
sututjon of player will tie completed

purposely false starting signal, referee

Rixey No Dub Baxter
Because of his ungainly parade to the
plate and hla awkward aland itv the
by 'bg box, nearly every National
league pitcher at one time enjoyed see
ing Eppa Jeppa Rixey stepping up with
his hat. He has long bean regarded as a
poor bitter.
No longer docs the fast-flinging Phtlly
pitcher Justify such a reputation. Any
time a pitcher becomes careless and
hurls any old thing at the Gitmt port
aider the Utter la likely to drtve a clean
base bit.
In ths recent Pfttsbnrg-Philadelphla
series Rixey, In one of the games, made
two singles and drove homo three runs,
which Just about won the game for
him.
Asa matter of fact, the enlongated
left-hander has been bitting the ball*
hard and timely all season, and If he
keeps it np he nirfy reach the pinch

Concerning the Yanks,
While It I* mathematically possible
for New York to pa** Cleveland, in
the American League race, the Yan
kees can only tie the Chicagoans.
The Yanks have two games to play
and by winning them while the two
western team* lose all their contests.
New York would I# on oven terms
with Chicago and a game attend ot
Cleveland.
A victory by the White So* or a
defeat for the Yankee* will pat the
eastern team ont of the race.
EXCITING RACE
IN AMERICAN
BIG THING NOW
With Dodgers Holding Na
tional Flag, Fans Watch
Sox and Spokes.
PACE CONTINUES FAST
With the National League pennant
waving over Brooklyn the interest of
fandom centered today on the hot fight
; between the Chicago White Sox andjho
Cleveland Indians in the Junior major
league. Tha National League pennant
was decided Monday when the Glints,
| the last cluh to challenge Brooklyn.lost
a game to Boston and thereby felWout
j of the race/ .
The rival American League teams ars
hanging on like bulldogs. Both won
j their Monday games in decisive fashion
; and the Indians' managed to hold the
scant half-game lead that bridges the
gap between first and second places.,
j Today -Trls Speaker's -cam continued
i its series in St. Louis, where two more
1 games qrft to be played, but the White
§ox will be Idle until Friday, when they
are scheduled to open /a three-game
series with t£e Browns. Meanwhile the
Clevelanders will take oif Detroit in
four games. v >;
Chicago's lone hope rests In two de
feats for the Speakerltes iu their remaln
: ins six games adid. though the Ohioans
j are going great guns, such a happening
Is posslle before they get away from St.
Louisa though, not probhbler
While the American Leaguers afe flght
< in? 11 ou t the Brooklyn Dodgers will
Pint tjwmselves for the world’s series.
Uncle Wilbert Robinson now hae a
I cfiance to give his star twirlers a much
needed rest and” In this respect he en
j joys a distinct advantage over whichever
t Americam League team wlas the pennant
| Granting that Ditching will have much
j to do with deciding the Issue In the com
| lng series, it is apparent that the Dodgers
enjoy an edge at this stage, for Brook
lyn’s pitching staff is stronger as a *hole
i than the staffs of either tha Indians or
: White Box. i
j The victory of the Dodgers In this
year * campaign was Honestly earned and
well-deserved. Wilbert Robinson got ih-J
last ounce of baseball out of every meMS
her of the team and the fact that tW
newly crowned champions won a majority
of game# throughout the seasoj from
every'other team but the Cincinnati Red*
! proves that they played consistently.
-The fact that tl*; Dodgers must Invade
j an American League city for the first
1 three world's aeries games Is not looked
upon as a serious handicap, for Brooklyn
j has been a good road club all year.
