NEWS of the DAY IN Eddie Ash MIGHTY BABE IS TOTTERING ON HIS THRONE Ruth, in Desperation, Seems to Be Using Caveman Tactics on Ball Field. N. Y. OFF SWAT KING BY HENRY FARRELL. NEW YORK, June 21.— Tottering on his throne. Babe Ruth, once the great home run king, is defending himself in the primitive ways of a cave man. His wrath aroused apparently by the notion that every one is against him, the Babe is following the inclination to wipe out those who stand between him and his former glory. Knowing that the five weeks' suspen sion iin post'd by Commissioner Landis at the start of the season would prevent him from breaking his 11*21 record, Kuth had only the solace of being the home run king of the year. ith Kenneth Williams, the Brown star, making it al most impossible for him to do that, he has become frantic. American League pitchers have been making a “sucker'* out of him, not so much that they have found his weakness, but because he has been swinging at any thing In the mad desire to kill the ball. The more he has missed had bails the more he has swung at them. New York is off the swat king now and the impression prevails here that he is through. KITH DENIES RETIREMENT. CLEVELAND. June too young to retire,’’ thus did George Herman Ruth, king of swat and temperamental star of the New York Yankees, dispose of rumors that he would doff his base ball uniform for the remainder of the year, following his two run-ins with Umpire Dineen in two days. “1 never said I was going to retire.” Ruth continued. “I don't know where such rumors originate." Ruth today denied he intended to at tack Umpire' Dineen yesterday at Dunn field as a result of his suspension, fol lowing his run-in with the umpire dur ing Monday's game. “I wasn't going to hit him," Ruth said today. “There was no danger of a fight, at ail. W? were just talking it over." When asked why Manager Speaker and Stuffy Mclnnis and other memters of the Cleveland team intervened, Ruth said: “We wer talking loud. I guess. seemed to be a misunderstanding regarding M inday's incident and both of us were trying to get it straightened out.” The affair yesterday had every ear mark of a physical encounter.

A good, hard run is absolutely essen tial to the successful performance ot Titles Handed Out by Commission Do Not Satisfy Fans N. Y. Edicts Forfeiting Kii bane’s and Wilson’s Crou ns Meet Public Disapproval. BT DAVIS J. WALSH. NEW YORK, June 21.—Because Amer ica is a country Inhabited by people who prefer to see a man die with h>s boots on, it Is not at ail likely that the divorce of Johnny KUbane from his featherweight title by the New York State boxing commission, will be ac cepted by fans, even in this State. The fans will not, in spirit, be a party to a transaction whereby a mau loses his championship by forfeit. The only way a fighter can suffer a definite loss of his title is to be painstakingly beaten out of It. Suppose, for example, Kiltane should engage in a bout with some young con tender in a State where New York edicts are worth a dime a dozen. Suppose, also, the said contender should knock John for a packet of invisible hairpins. Is it likely that the winner of a Dundee-Frush bout, designed by the commission to come into the title by forfiet, would be recognized over the man who beats the real champion 5 The nays seem to have it. Eventually, Johnny Kllbane will emerge from his storm cellar to do bat tle in defense of the title. Then, If Ivil bane has really slipped as far as popular theory would have it. or if the challenger Is man enough for the job, we ill have a made-to-your-measure champion, not hand-me-down. As for Johnny Wilson, who faces the same arbitrary treatment at the hands of the commission, we can only say that Wilson was ever an immoderate laugh as a fighter, but that he deserves some con sideration. at that. He Is being pushed headlong into a match with Harry Greb, in spite of the fact that, having teen suspended in these parts for six months, he is not altogether fitted for the ordeal. Wilson should be allowed to take on a few bouts of minor importance before being tossed into the pit. with Greb. KILBANE WANTS $75,000. CLEVELAND. .Tune 21. “I'll fight any man in the world in my class if I get my price." said Johnny Kllbane, world's featherweight champion, today. “I got 565.000 for my fight with Danny Frush here last fall. I am willing to take on any contender for $75,000 with the priv ilege of 50 per cent of the cross receipts, hut as yet I have not received a bonafide offer.” Kllbane laughed at the attempt to for feit his title by the New York State box ing commission.

Losing to the Saints again yesterday, the Indians today had a last chance to grab the edge on the series before tak ing on the league leaders Thursday. Seib or Hill was to do the chucking for the Tribesmen this afternoon and the Hen dricksmen were hopeful of emerging from their fitdding slump and put ovei a victory. Claude Jonnard battled Charlie Hall on tbo mound yesterday and Claude had his victory string punctured through no fault of riis own. The Tribe was again erratic in the field and four errors gave the Saints all the openings they needed to cop the contest. 6 to 4.

Already fans are clamoring for thkets to the “big” series, and at tendance at Washington Park is expected to grow by leaps. The Saints were the first to score yes terday and they were started on their way by an error. Two runs went over in the fourth inning and three more In the sixth, three errors in that inning playing havoc. - The final Saint run was scored in the ninth off of Bartlett, who had taken up the Tribe pitching when Jonnard had dropped out for u pinch hitter. The Indians scored three markers in the sixth and one In the seventh. Their sixth Inning rally was a corker, three singles and a double nearly forcing the veteran Hall to call for assistance. The seventh-inning run came when Purcell batted for Jonnard and lifted the ball over the right field fence for the circuit. Some pinch hitting, that! Brcwn cot two of the Tribe's six hits, both being doubles. The Tribe defeats suffered Monday and Tuesday and other Incidents has awak ened the Indian bosses to the fact that the roster needs bolstering.

Owner Smith realizes that some weak nesses have ertpped out in the team that must be strengthened it the club is to win the pennant and he has directed Hendricks to go ahead and put the lines out for an inflelder and an outfielder. Rube Benton, Saint pitcher, who de feated the Indians Monday, has won six straight games and the Saint players pre diet he will establish quite a rerord this season. He will have to step lively if the Indians give Jonnard the proper support. When you are doping the pennant win ner don't overlook the Saints.

Parry and Slinkard tied for first honors In the Crooked Creek Gun Club shoot Tuesday, each breaking forty-six targets out of a possible fifty. f Billy Evans Says (EDITOR’S NOTE—This Is the first of a series of three articles by Billy Evans doping the mid-season race of the major leagues.) Everybody Interested in Major Races With the baseball season one-third over vch u about the two major leagues? Are the clubs running true to form? Will the two New York clubs repeat, as was generally predicted by the experts? What have been the outstanding features of the two races? Has any rank outsider a chance to upset the talent? These and a score of other questions are now being debated by followers of major league tall. That means every lover of baseball in the United States is very much inlerested in the major league races. Followers of major league ball are not confined to the cities in the circuits. In one respect the two major league races have run true to form. The New York clubs have shown the way practically ail season, though the Browns have temporarily nosed the Yankees out of first place. Babe Ruth, after his five weeks' absence, got back into the game on May 26 against St. Louis, and packed the fans into the Polo Grounds for four days, setting a record. In a recent series at St. Louis between the same club, 75,000 fans saw the four games, a record for that city. ••• • • • Breaks Records at Bat and Box Office If there Is one thing that Bate Ruth does, it is break records. When he isn't doing that little t' ing at tile bat he is turning the trick at the box office. What tiie second suspension of Ruth, announced by Ban Johnson yes terday, will develop into remains to be seen, but there are indications pointing toward serious trouble. Ruth' absence from the game the first few weeks of the race gave several other players a chance to bask in the sporting spotlight. Ken Williams of St. Louis is the home-run king of the American League so far this season. lie is being closely pursued bv Miller of the Übieties and Heilman of Detroit. In the National League Ttogers Hornsby of the St. Louis Cardinals is show ing the way. It is a rather interesting fact that of the four leading home-run hitters Williams is the only left-handed batter. In tiie American League the line start made by the Athletics was the talk of the circuit. The failure of Washington to get away to a flying start was an equally big disappointment to the followers of that club. In the National League Pittsburgh has played fine ball, despite the loss of its star catcher, Schmidt. The St. Louis Cards have been rather erratic. Cleveland, to date, has disappointed. Detroit has shown a strong offensive that gets results with pi 'hlng that hefids up Tn separate articles devoted to each league I will consider the work of the clubs up to date and the possibilities for the future.
