Th stage Is all set at the Hammond
fcsll park. Farduhn has provided 500
additional seats to take care of any
possible overflow crowd, the diamond
has been put In first class condition and
all Is in readiness for the sound of the
Albany Park Is all primed for the big
occasion, as their manager has already
announced his lineup as follows: Heck

89: Egan, c; Mack, p.
The team, together with their big
following of fans, will arrive on an
early train and it is rumored that the
bugs will com down with plenty of
"dough" to bet on their favorites.
Reports from Crown Point indicate
that Henning has been working out
very day so as to be in the pink of
condition for the big battle. Artie Hoff
man stated last Monday night that he
will make every player go out there and
fight as hard as they know how as he
fcas his ieart set n winning this open
ing game. Hoffman played first base
for Albany Park early :n the season and
through some disagreement with the
management he severed his connections
with the, club. This same thing is true
of "Eddie" DeLave and if ever there
was a game in his life that he wanted
to win it is next Sunday's contest.
Looks like a good opportunity for re
venge an'l both players are going out
to get it-
The two best umpires in the league
have been appointed by the; officials to
handle this most important series and
next Sunday will find "Big" Steve
Cusack behind the plate and Matty
Fitzpatrick on the bases. This is the
same pair that handled the AVaukegan

Ben Tincup, the Indian pitcher for
merly with the Phillies, has been
secured by the Cardinals from Little
Rock, where he was sent on a trade.
Tincup should win games in fast
company if he will behave. The
i rallies declare they still have
claim on him.

with uth Chicago who have been
booked up in a three game series for a
side bet of $200. To date South. Chi
cago has made a good showing in the
Chicago League having defeated some
of the best teams in that circuit and it
is the opinion of the management over
there that Hammond will be easy pick
ing. Parduhn thinks differently and
quickly took up the proposition when
South Chicago offered to bet $200 on the
side. The latest rumor is to the effect
that South Chicago has signed one of
the best semi-pro ritchers around Chi
cago to defeat Hammond in the first
game of the set next Sunday. For the

Considerable interest is being taken
in this game as it is the first team of
the Chicago League to visit Tarduhn
park this year, thus giving the fans an
opportunity to study the comparative
strength of the two leagues. Hammond
will likely meet Beloit, winner of the
Chicago league pennant, before the end
of the season.

The average fans sees enough
comebacks in baseball to bore him a
bit, but there is hardly a fan who has
not been amazed at the remarkable
comeback of old Chief Bender. After
being released by the Phillies last
winter as too old for any further use
he has returned late this summer
and pitched some of the most sensa
tional ball th game has seen.

Carl Morris, the Oklahoma engineer,
who has been wallowing and floundering
though the heavyweight puddle for sev
eral years, claims to have arrived at
last and expects to demonstrate as

ton a scheduled fifteen rounds. Carl
is being teamed by Jack Curley,
Lewis and others, parties who
high hopes of surmounting the
Willard championship obstacle
Morris some day.
Morris' gieat fault in the early years
of his ring career was in his inability
or disinclination to get in condition.
The syndicate that bought him a year
ago for $5,000 claims that it has con
vinced him of the error of his ways.
Certainly his advisers have managed to
work a wonderful difference in the size
of this mammoth, who was known in
Jack Johnson's heyday as the original
white hope. A year ago. when they con
cluded that Carl had championship
possibilities, their battler was an
enormous overfed giant. They tell us
that, out of shape, at that time he scal
ed around 315 pounds. Morris was told
that at such a poundage he would never
get anywhere and ordered to diet and
Carl to Weigh. 220 Monday.
The result is that Carl expects to get
into the ring with Fulton Monday after
noon weighing about 220 stripped and
with hardly a pound of superfluous
flesh on him. That means that he has
taken oft ninety-five pounds in the past
twelve months to accomplish his aim a
Willard match. While doing so he has
beaten three of the best white heavies
in the country Fulton, Frank Moran
and Jim Coffey. He won over Fulton
on a foul, but intends to prove con
clusively at Canton that this victory
was no fluke.
