SOMETHING GOING TO HAPPEN. New York, June 15. Racing men who are in a position to know said today they expected developments within the nex ten days that would remove from the present situation many tangles. They said when the courts have passed n various points In dispute as set forth by the new betting law it would be clearly shown that betting between Individuals can be carried on, provided no record is made of the wagers. - The recording of wagers is the only problem that appears difficult of solu tion. If a layer or bettor can carry a memorandum of wager in his head, racing men who have consulted eminent legal authorities say the new law will not apply to such cases. SOX MAKE IT ELEVEN STRAIGHT. John Anderson's family and next door neighbors should be pleased to learn he has again covered himself with schmeerkase. His powerful blow over the block of Hemphill in the eighth round tied the count and en abled the Sox to win No. 11. Score, 5 to 4. If ever a bulging crowd went dippy it was when the bulging south siders pulled up and won against a 4 to 0 handicap. Mr. Griffith felt he had at least one game stowed away, and the 'New York scribe who got a notice of recall because of the losing streak, expected a flash from the sporting edi tor telling him to linger yet, a little while longer. But alas, you never can tell in these parts, and' when it was all fiver Mr. Griffith said he felt like the 3MOTES United States had beeiv dragged from under him just as he was about to step out of a balloon. The 'recalled scribe is on his way. GANS TO FEATURE ROAD WORK. Champion Will Delay His Stunts for Two Weeks. Boxing San Francisco, Cal., June 14. A large crowd of Lightweight Champion Gans' friends and admirers went over to Shannon's in San Rafael, today to see Joe go through his gym stunts. They failed to see him box, because Joe ex- J plained that he would cut out boxing until two weeks before the fight, as there was nothing for him to learn ! there was nothing in science which re- : mained for him to learn. He was on !the road in the morning and went through a variety of gym work. As I usual, Gans seems in the pink of con- , dition, and says he will easily dis- pose of Nelson, as he weighs now only 139. j Nelson Is at the baths in Livermore Hills, but will return next week. His I friends say the Dane will win this I time sure, as he has made up his mind to hammer Gans at in-flghtlng from the tap of the gong, and as the referee is not to separate the men, he figures he can wear down Joe at this rough work.

The game of baseball yesterday be tween the Simonettes of Whiting and the White Stars of East Chicago was a peach. The heretofore unbeaten Whit ing team arrived in town yesterday full of confidence and handed out the dope on the game without stint. They mod eatly admitted before the crame that while the White Stars were a fairly good little team, they really ought to stay in their class and not pick world beaters for their initial game. They intimated that while a seemed a shame to do It they (the Simonettes) would certainly have to hand them (the White Stars) what was coming to them for their presumption in tackling such a mighty aggregation as the Simonettes of Whiting. Now the record of the Simonettes of Whiting would seem to have given them' the right to make a St . . s " DAI TODAY'S NEWS EET BRIEF. Mobile, Ala.,- June 15.

Thanks to the untiring efforts of the American Flag Association and with the co-operation of numerous other patriotic bodies, today's celebration of Flag Day .commemorating the sdnn. -iion of the red, white and blue as the national emblem, was more general throughout the land then ever before. Reports indicate that the idea has now been adopted In nearly every State and Territory and has been carried by Americans to the islands beyond the seas. The American flag Is 131 years old, and though It has slightly altered, the alteration represents only the growth of the institution for which it stands. The first flag was made by patriotic ladles in Philadelphia. It was a small affair but represented a heavy cost, be cause the bunting came from England and Just at that time things British came high. This first flag was flown by Paul Jones, the naval hero whose body was discovered In its obscure resting place in France and returned to thia country. By error the initial flag had but twelve stars but the man whom the British dubbed "a pirate and a rebel" proudly informed Congress that the emblem at the peak of his warship, the "Ranger," was received with the most marked courtesies by the French, whose formal recognition of the new flag constituted the French acknowl edgment of the American republic.
