Hammond plays its next to last scheduled game In, the City League next Sunday when it faces the West Ends of Chicago at Parduhn park. This will be our second whirl at the south aiders, the first resulting in a win for Ham mond. The score was 5 and 3 and the game was featured by a dual between Hen ningr and Ryan. The latter made quite a hit with local fans and they are pleased to hear that he will again be in the lineup. Manager Artie Hoffman ex pects plenty of trouble next Sunday, however, for he has learned of several improvements to the team and it looks like they are '"loading" for us. Par duhn's men will meet the. Ideals on the following Sunday, winding up the sched ule, and will then play Waukegan for the championship. Arrangements are under way for three games with this club whereby the team that cops two will be proclaimed the champs. COLLINS Cii'T GET HIS STRIDE By H. C. HAXTOir (United Press Staff Correspondent.) NEW YORK. July 27. Eddie Collins undoubtedly is feeling his age just a little bit. Always a slow starter, he is lagging more than ever this season in finding the pitching. His average is lower now than is his custom at this time of the year. Collins Is fle'.3:ng Just as brilliantly, thinking Just as rapidly, and is not slowing perceptibly in his base-run-ring. His appearances on first base, however, have been too few to allow much base stealing or run-scoring. Even when Collins was with the Mack machine and enjoying the height of his ability, it always required a few weeks or more than a month for him to reach the zenith of his batting stride. Usual ly the end of a season found him dis puting batting premiership with Ty Cobb and Joe Jackson, although his av erage never reached the top notches set by those batting stars. If Collins were to swing Into his old time batting form at this stage of the race his assistance would be sufficient in itself, it is believed by most critics, to carry the Sox to a championship. And, if he should suddenly receive the assistance of "Joe Jackson's old-time Cleveland form, the American league race probably would be over just about as suddenly. Strangely, neither Jackson nor Collins has been able to hit the season's open ing with batting strength since becom ing members of the White Sox. Jack son's average never was so low as it is now, and he seems totally incapable of throwing off the slump. The drop of this pair in batting is one thing the dope overlooked in picking the White Sox as favorites in the Johnson scramble. They are the players who make the Sox or wreck them. Even with their batting low their efforts are sufficient inspira tion to other members of the team to count a great deal. Curley Davis. Hammond's bear-cat rassler. showed Blarney Lichtenstein's pet. Young Jordan, the way to go-home boys, last night at Columbia hall. West Hammond, and gathered in two flsps to Jordan's one. Nobody tore the roof oft yelling for joy over the grappling at that. Davis took the first fall after IS minutes in such a funny business that Jordan wanted quit. The crowd couldn't stomach- this and howled its head off. Jordan hurt his wrist but finally came back and copped the second fall. The last went to Curley and then ; Lichtenstein offered $500 for a match; in two months. There was only $100 in' the house and the bonnet had to be j passed which made it awfully exciting. At The Hammond Base Ball Park .

Johnny Kilbane, featherweight champion, who went out of his class to meet Benny Leonard and was knocked out, declared yesterday that the defeat would not cause his retirement. Incidentally, al though he did not deny Leonard's supe rior ring craft, Kilbane criticized his manager, Jimmy Dunn, for throwing the towel into the ring in the closing sec onds of the third round. "I have nothing to say as to a re turn fight with Leonard. He's a great boy, has a great defense and is the hardest man I ever tried to hit. He has speed, is clever and possesses a won derful head. I still believe I have a great many fights in my system and after resting for a few weeks will out line my plans for the future." KILBANE BATTLE . BOOSTS LEONARD NEW YORK. July 27. Benny Leon ard, world's lightweight champion, stands today a glitering figure, un doubtedly one of the greatest champions his class ever saw, as a result of his victory over Johnny Kilbane, king of the featherweights, in three rounds at Philadelphia. No man, lightweight or featherweight, has ever been given a higher rating than Kilbane. Champion in' his own class, four times he has stepped into ring against another champion, and three times he has come off victorious. The last time was Wednesday night, when he failed. Leonard's superior weight, his supe rior punching, and a crafty ring gen eralship carried the fight for him. His terrific, crushing blows were too much for the great little man he defeated. Reason would predict that another bout between the two could have but one ending another defeaft for Kilbane. HERE ARE SOME OF BASEBALL'S STARS DRAFTED IN FIRST CALL, TO COLORS $1,288.07 PER MINUTE. Beany Leonard and Johnny Kil bane set a record for their class In pugilism Wednesday when each re. celved $11,692.67 for engaging In battle at Philadelphia.

The Scatenas were strengthened by the addition of "Buck" Bakalar and Daniels. Buck is a good pitcher, an excellent fielder and a good batter. He will probably pitch Sunday. Daniels is an excellent second baseman and batter. Last Sunday the Scatenas were de feated by the Koseland Blftk Sox by a score of 6-4. Up to the ninth score was 3-3. The feature of the game were the fielding of "Spike" Kennedy, the batting of Daniels and Hess. Rogers of the Sox made a good one-hand catch in the 7th inning.
