NEWS of the DAY IN
Eddie Ash
Ruth, in Desperation, Seems to
Be Using Caveman Tactics
on Ball Field.
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.
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
“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
The affair yesterday had every ear
mark of a physical encounter.

Titles Handed Out

Not Satisfy Fans
N. Y. Edicts Forfeiting Kii

Meet Public Disapproval.
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
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.
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

any contender for $75,000 with the priv

Hiker O'Leary in City on
Way to Cincy; Still Able
to Walk Like Youngster
Veteran Walker Dan O’Leary breezed
into town today. He is on his way to
Cincinnati where he will celebrate his
birthday in fitting fashion by walking 100
miles in twenty-four hours at the Zoo
logical gardens. Dan states that he hag
enjoyed every birthday since 1874 in just
such a way. The noted pedestrian will
be 81 years old oil .Tune 29. He is a great
grandfather, but you’d never guess it.
O’Leary offers to give SIOO to any man
55 years or over who can win from, him
in the 100 mile walk. Dan says that’ is
fair enough as he is giving a twenty-six
year handicap.
O’Leary is on a tour of every State in
the Union. He has just lately come from
Now r <nnd and some of the Middle
Western States. He is getting the signa
tures of the various Governors and State
seals. Fourteen Sla‘es already tire
checked off the list. Dan has been paying
his way by walking exhibitions in the
bail parks.
Dan says that he thinks he will retire
when he is 84 years old. He plans ns his
final walking stunt a round trip on the
walls of the Panama Canal. His com
panions on his final walk will b< Con
gresmen James McAndrews of Chicago
and Humphrey O’Sullivan of Lowell,
Mass., both of whom have promised to
take the hike.
‘After that,” said Dan, “I’ll be old
enough to retire and take up golf.”

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

scored in the ninth off of Bartlett, who
had taken up the Tribe pitching when
Jonnard had dropped out for u pinch
The Indians scored three markers in
the sixth and one In the seventh. Their
sixth Inning rally was a corker, three

(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.

Block’s Colt to Meet Great
Racers in Latonia Special
LATONIA, Ky., June 21—What hap
peneu in the Curieton stakes last Satur
day, when Whiskaway gave Morvich a
rather distant view of his heels and
achieved the distinction of being the first
horse to cross the finish line ahead of
Ben Block's speedy colt, apparently is
causing Morvich. Block and Fred Burlew,
his trainer, not the slightest worry.
Morvich is lure tuning up for tile $50.-
090 Latonia Special, to be run on Satur
day. About his stall there hovers an air
of confidence that indicates Saturday's
disastrous happening has been forgotten.
The swift son of Runnymede. however,
is expected to get the test” of his career in
Saturday s event. For one thing, he will
have Whiskaway running against him
again. He also will have Pillory, the win
ner of the Preakness, Hea, Deadlock und
a few other fast nags whose supporters
are confident will give the Kentucky Der
by winner all the running he cares for.
Burlew and others in the Block menage
are offering no alibis for Morvich's single
• lefeat, but the word h as been passed
around that the horse was a bit dull on
Saturday. The dullness, according to all
indications, has disappeared and Morvich
is himself again In a short workout yes
terday the Derby victor galloped a half
in .49 1-5 with a big, strong back boy
asirido. The colt was eager to run and
his rider had difficulty pulling him up at
<*nd of the hair.
Kentuckians duo l ice io see their home
horses win are paying lots of attention to
Deadlock. This candidate has been show
ing greatly improved form since be ran in
the 1' why and there are those who believe
he has a chance to take the rich prize in
Saturday's event.
