St. Louis Players Accused of
Letting Him Hit Ball to
Win Automobile
ST. LOUIS. Oct. 10.— Sporting writers
here charge that the local team of the
American league yesterday allowed La
3Oie. of the Cleveland team to obtain
hits. The object of this, it Is charged,
was to enable him to score more Jilts
during the season than were credited
to Cohb of Detroit. ;
It was necessary for Lajoie to .ob
tain eight hits in order to pass Cobb.
He went to bat four times in each game
and obtained as many hits. The first'
time he hit a long liner to center field
that netted him a three base hit. Six
other t'rnes he bunted down the third;
base line snd either beat Third Base
man Corridon's throw to first, or else
Corridon did not throw. Another time
La.ioie grounded to Wallace, who threw
to first. Once Lajoie bunted to
Corridon. who fielded it, but tossed wide
off first. Lajoie was credited with a
sacrifice hit.
President Hedges of the local team
refused to discuss the team's playing.
When Lajoie was at bat Corridon
played far back of third base. He ran
up each time Le.loie bunted.
Mailer and Nelson were the_St. Louis
pitchers. In the only other game
which Mailer pitched against Cleveland
Lajoie got one hit in three times at
Ist. Kelson never pitched to Lajoie
before. :,."': ,."'
I^ajoie outguessed us." said Man
ager O'Connor. "We fignred he did not
have the nerve to bunt every time. He
beat us at our own game. I will not
Bead any of my players in to play up
close to Lajoie when he tries to bunt."
-In explaining his plajing Lajoks in
a telegram to a local newspaper, said:
"After I made my first hit, a clean
drive to center for three bases, the St.
Louis, men played deep, expecting me
i>_> pound the ball out every time. 1
fooled them right along. The pitchers
did their best to deceive me, I am cer- j
t^in." !
Navin !s Suspicious \
DETROIT. Oct. 10. — Frank J. Navin. j
prfFident of the Detroit American j
l^asrup baseball club, declared today j
that the hitting of Lajoie in St. Louis
looked supplcious.
"It locked like a raw deal," he said,
"but I don't know whether the league
..win tako action. The league can throw
out games for justifiable reasons.
"I think when the averages are
given out it win be found that Cobb is
the leaden At least 1 hope so."
President Navin also that the
leagues will probably * take action
toward the elimination of prizes and
bonuses for players.
"These prizes," declared Navin, "only
serve to create dissension on a team."
Pitchers Held Innocent
CHICAGO. Oct. 10. — Several Chicago
sporting writers/ in discussing the La
joie incident, declared they, did not
Think blame could be attached to the
St. Louis pitchers, Malley and Nelson.
They said, however, that the case pre
sented the possibility of an under
standing between Lajoie and certain
Seldera of the St. Louis team.
Lajoie'B feat of Sunday Is not a new
record in major league circles, but It
has not been excelled for many years.-
The nearest thing to It in recent years
was the work of Tinker of the Chicago
Nationals, who, in a double header at
. New York, made seven hits In succes
Johnson Bars Prizes
" CHICAGO. Oct. 10. — President B. B.
Johnson of the American league an
nounced late today that no more prizes
will be offered or permitted while he
continues at the head of that baseball
President Johnson stated that he had
tfiken this position as a result of the
Lajoie incident. He also said that he
was making an investigation of the
allegations made unofficially by St. 1
Louis sporting writers.
Herrmann Noncommittal
CINCINNATI, Oct. 10. — August Herr
mann, chairman of the national base
ball commission, In discussing the La
joie incident tonigrht said:
"Lajoie and Cobb, according to un
official averages, have the race for the
leading batsman in both leagues be
tween them. Which will win I do not
kr.ow and the national commission can
not decide until it receives the official
averages of both leagues.
"I want to cay cc thing, however,
since the question came up as to the
genuineness of the hits made by Lajoie
at St. Louis, and that is that no more
prizes or bonuses will be permitted
under the rules of the national com
mission. We shall be very careful to
eliminate anything of the kind in tlia"
Lajoie Wants Nine
"I have nothing whatever to say,"
was the way Napoleon Lajoie answered
a request for an interview here tonight
regarding the manner in which he
made eight hits in one day at St. Louis
yesterday. Before he was through,
however, he said that he had not only
secured eight hits in an absolutely
genuine manner, but that he really de
served nine hit*. - When asked to ex
plain this last statement he answered:
"•That's all I have to say on the sub
ject." . . -
Information was conveyed to Lajoie
during the interview that Frank Navin,
president of the Detroit club, had said
that bis feat at St. Louis yesterday
looked suspicious.
•'So it looked suspicious to Navin,
did itr* said Lajoie. "Well, he knows
what he can do. He can take it before
the league if he wants to, and at that
time I certainly will have ray say.
Until that time I can only say that I
not only got eight hits yesterday In a
regular manner, but. that I should be
credited with nine. . That's all I have to
tav." <*

Decision in Favor of Oakland
May Carry Coveted Flag
Across Bay
The pennant race in the Pacific Coast
league, which has kept the enthusiasm
of the fans at fever heat during the
last few months, is likely to end in a
big farce. If the decision of President
Graham is rendered today and is de-
I cided in favor. of Oakland it will give
Oakland a chance to win the pennant
on a foul.~- The, merits of the protest
are not up for argument by the writer,
.but there is one thing sure. The fans
are not string , for victories won on
technicalities. %.
The many rules and laws of organ
ized baseball are foreign to.the average
man. He goes to see a. ball game won
on its merit. Hetllng may not have
had any right to play with the Port
land club in those games which' Port
land won from Oakland, but at the
; same time the fans remember" that Het
llng wore a uniform in the early part
of the season, and many of them are
inclined to think that he is still a
Should Oakland win the protest and
the pennant on technical grounds theirs
would be an empty honor. If Port
land's playing percentage of games is
highest it will be recognized as the
best team. -
- It Is hoped on all sides that these
protested games will not figure in the
ultimate outcome of the ra£e, for it
they do, a grand baseball race will
have been marred.
At the present time Oakland looks
aa if it needs the three games it lost
to Portland to win out. The Beavers
i are nearly five games in the lead, and
with but another month of playing it
does not look a.s If the Oaks will be
able to overcome this lead, when the
class of ball Portland is playing at tne
present time is considered.
However, if those protested games
are awarded in favor of Oakland the
Oaks will have a lead of more than
two games, and their chances of win
ning the pennant v'ill look better than
the chances of the Beavers, as the lat
ter club will finish its games on the
It is too bad that this trouble has
occurred, for it certainly has mixed up
things, and until a decision is rendered
by President Graham the fans do not
know where the clubs stand. It is a
cinch that the fans In the north will
make an awful roar if Portland loses
these games, and If they cost them the
i pennant the wall will be heard down
Oakland returns here this week and
opens up with the Seals at Recreation
I park this afternoon. As far as the
Seals are concerned they are out of the
Vunning. but they may figure in - put
ting either of the leading yearns out of
the running, too. If the champions
give the Oaks a drubbing this week it
will be hard on the Athenians at this
stage of the race. • ._
" "Jack Lively seems to be themainstay
of the Oaks and the big fellow is twirl
ing some gilt edge, ball at the present
time. If he does not get too much of
it he will come near bringing the Oaks
; out on top.
"Wolverton seems to be depending
upon Lively, while McCredie Is relying
a great deal upon Gregg, the Beavers'
sensational offside shooter. Krapp is
also pitching great ball, and with these
two heavers going- right it Is hard to
beat the northern club. Steen Is also
doing good work.
Portland meets Los Angeles on the
northern diamond. The .Angels are
•only playing a fair game. But you can
never tell what Berry's men ..will do.
They can beat any team at times.
The Vernon and Sacramento; series is
without interest. The: results of these
games have no bearing on the stand
ing of the clubs.
The umpires who will work here this
week are Hildebrand and Van Haltren,
while McGreevy and Irwin will do the
honors In the south. Finney and Ran
kin will be on the diamond in 'the
north. . ":V .
Training Table Dance
Nets Large Sum
BERKELEY. Oct. 10. — The training
table Informal, a dance given for the
purpose of raising funds* for defraying
the expense of maintaining a training
table for the varsity, football team, re
sulted in the 11 raising, of a fund of be
tween $250 and $275. This sum is
slightly in excels of the- amount col
lected by a similar -dance last year,
when- $248.70 was raised for the train
ing table for the varsity Rugby team.
The dance was held in Harmon gym
nasium and was under the direction. of
the rally committee, with R. H. Moulton
as chairman.
It has not been definitely stated just
when the training table will begin this
season, but it will probably start one
week after the freshman intercollegiate
game. , , . •

Initial 'Step in. Revolution". of the Motor Car
. Industry Reduces Market Quotations
by Hundreds of Dollars
. ' -\u25a0 -
One of most interesting an
nuoncements ever -made in the his
tory of the automobile industry came
yesterday from the E-M-F company of
Detroit. Mich., ~ makers of the E-M-F
"80" and Flanders "20" automobiles,
.when news reached here, of a. big reduc
tion In the price' of J these machines. The'
"30" has been*cut!from $1,260 to $1,000
and the "20" from $760 to $700. , JjVS'-'X" 1
Decided, drops in 'the cost of raw ma
terials, together with the E-M-F com
pany's system of quantity production,
are said to be responsible for the cut
in the prices of these two machines.'. So
far reaching and effective "^ is \u25a0 the v drop
in. the, price of materials, says v the :
E.-M-F company, that at-thejiew. figures
the company will enjoy the same mar
gin of profit as heretofore:-;
The E-M-F company manufactures its
cars from the foundation up.'.The organ
ization is one of the largest in the
country. It has its own forging plant,
foundries, stamping plant, brass plant
and body ptknt. So complete is the
company's organization and manufac-c
turing facilities that there is not a
part of the company's two machines'
that Is.- "not manufactured under its
own roof. With the* improvements in 1
manufacturing facilities that have been 1 !
added during the last year' and the
recent drop in the cost of materials the
concern states that by placing the sell
ing price of the E-M-F at $1,000 the
company will enjoy the same margin
of profit which prevailed when the ma
chine sold for $1,250.
The company is backed by the Morgan
interests and the , reduction in price
means that a vigorous effort is to be
made to broaden the market.
Quantity production is the secret of
the whole proposition, say the company
officials,' but another reason ; for the
drop in price is said -to be due to. the
fact" that the E-M-F company has re^
framed from putting, out radically
"different models of machines every
year. Changes, the company says, have
been made gradually and the car as it
is today is to a great extent the same
machine .that It was two' years ago.
It has several refinements, admit mem
bers of the E-M-F company, but these
have taken place only in Instances
where seryice showed weaknesses/
The Studebaker Brothers company of
California, through its -branches in San
Francisco, Los Angeles, "Sacramento,
Oakland and Stockton. . now has con
tracts for the sale of more than 2,200
machines during the coming season, ac
cording to Chester N. Weaver, the local
manager of the Studebaker interests.
Weaver says. that : the*drop in the price
of both the Flanders and the E-M-F
cars will boosts the sales of these ma
chines in California valone during* the
coming season %o above the 3,600 mark.
From the rDetroit,. factory comes the

'I \Walter E. Flanders, president of, the
company and the wizard" of the auto
mobile industry.; is responsible for the
new order of things,and in making. the
announcement yesterday he very frank
ly discussed the details of . the situa
tion, j • . : ;
"Let me say to you," he I said, "that
we •; will be able -to . make, the same
: margin of ' profit at ; the reduced ; cost
; as we were two years ago. _ We now
have -an Investment of $7,000,000, every
cent.of •- which is paid, ; and we enjoy,
unlimited financial resources, j In - ad
4itiori to this we have ; a highly de^
veloped manufacturing and selling or-^
grantzation, and we are" ; able to turn
out every day 80 cars of the 'thirty'
type and 125. Flanders; cars, so; you" see
we are not carrying any burden."
'; "Again, we are very heavy buyers of
;raw materials and enjoy facilities by
I reason of that which very few com
"panles can touch. It has always been j
• my aim to produce the best;value pos
sible for a reasonable price,>,and the
fact that there are now. 18,000
cars in use indicates that we'have suc
ceeded pretty we11. , ; -We make our own
[ drop f orgings, motors, : bodjes and jj tops
and do our own "stamping, so •we are
absolutely Independent." . " ,
- "Now as to present conditions.- The
price of materials has dropped. " It had
to drop because we had -been having
inflated values. In -producing a per
fected car in large quantities the'man
ufacturing cost has been reduced and
we found that for 1911 we could reduce
the price and maintain the standard.
"I have never believed in changing
the shape of a door, or using different
colored paint in order toibring forth a
so called new model. , : We add any im
provement just as Boon as its worth Is
proven, but it goes with the car. Our
aim has been to producea standard car
and 'we have reached a stage where we
guarantee our cars for a year.'" \" The
• reduction in price-takes Immediate ef
fect and today we -have not" a : car, on
hand. Although we are busy -l^ doubt
if there are' any 'unsold ears\ in vthe
hands of dealers." _ .
,The action of the company will be
welcome news to dealers throughout
the country, who have been disturbed
by the uncertainty of the last, few
months. , .
' Itis hinted that the E-M-F company
has in proces of construction a seven,
passenger car which will sell formless
than $2,000 and which will compete
with'? any 4 car regardless .of ? : cost, but
this is evidently a- state secret, as none
of ".the would- say
about It. \u25a0 ; : ;

School Win Relay Race by
: Disqualification
Mission high school and Liowell met
In a dual swimming mcc* at the Lurlin^
baths yesterday. It was one of the best
contested events of its kind' held this
season. The outcome was in doubt un
til the relay event, which was decided
last. Though Lowell came . home in
front by a narrow margin, the Satter
street school" team was disqualified for
breaking and the relay was credited to
Mission, which gave them a total of
29 points to Lowell's 27.
The races were keenly , contested
throughout. There were many times
when a short length separated the win
ner and second man. The star of the
meet loomed up in Ernest Smith, who
won four of the events and finished first
in the~ final lap, but was disqualified be
! cause the third relay man had broke
too soon. . " T
i. Smith ~ started off by capturing the
! 50. yard dash, the 100 yard dash, the
440 and the 880. Seldom has this feat
been equaled by a high school lad and
his feat amazed a big crowd who were
present. ! *
Tilton did some good " work and
earned many points for Mission. H The
results follow:
"50 yard dash— "Won by Ernest Smith. Lowell:

Oakland and Mission to
Play Rugby Today
; Oakland high and Mission high are
scheduled to play at the Grovo street
park iri-Oakland this afternoon. Mis
sion, will go on the field with a very
weak line up. There "is dissension,
among, the' players, and unless the dif
ficulties are patched up the local school
is not going to cut much of a figure at
Rugby. - . : -'• ;
Four, of 'the 'backs will be out of the
grame today and they are among the
strongest players- that Mission can
boast. They are Guerin, Stafford, Arm
strong and Middleton. To fill those
strong and Middleton. To fill these
vacancies some raw material will have
to be used. .-V" v .
The trouble seems to be with Captain
Lally. \u25a0 ,' The boys have complaints to
make of his treatment and there is
anything but harmony in the team. The
meettng of Mission and. Lowell for the
local Rugby championship will be
marred to some extent unless these
troubles are patched up and the boys
set to work.
