BOWLING SEASON HERE; SPIRIT LAGS Hammond is lagging behind in the bowling world this year, and because of a lack of interest there will be no games in the .city league this evening. Although there are forty or fifty bowl ers sufficiently good to participate in a city league there are not enough teams to make the league. It is thought, however that interest is not extinct but only dormant. There will bea match game between teams one and two representing Ham mond in the Lake County Howling As sociation, the evening of October 2 at the McCool alleys. The Elks are team No. 1 with Brice Whltaker. Ned Nel son, Dan l.nrlght, Walt McCumsey, Charles Eekland and Max Kuhn as the players. Meeker &. McCune have the other team composed of Jack Gill.

March 12, 1SS9. and received his nrst tryout in the professional game with Bonham, in the Texas-Oklahoma league, in 1912. Near the end of the 1312 season Rus sell, who had been standing all batters on their heads with is left-handed slants, was sold to Fort Worth. Tex. He won only four and lost the same num ber for that team, but he looked so good that the 'White Sox grabbed him. "Reb" got oIT good for the Sox in 1913, and finally ended the season with twenty-two victories and sixteen de feats. He's been with the white-hosed warriors ever since and fiiis season has been b.uer than at any time since he started in the majors. HARRY LE1BOLD One of Tloosier dom's representatives in the world's series is Harry I.eibold, who was born in Rentier. Ind.. in 1S92. Leibold s par ents moved to Milwaukee, however, and it was on the corner lots of that city that he gained his first experience. After playing semipro ball for a year or so Ueibold was given a trial by Mil waukee, in the American Association, this being in 1911. He didn't hit much, but Ji- did field well and he got around the peths to th.j home plate, so he was rclaiitrd. Leibold stayed at Milwaukee two sea sons an-1 then was drafted by Cle eland.

Clark St, 'Phone Harrison 3309 & he's the best the Sox can do. unless Rowland decides to to keep McMullin at third and to use Weaver in Risberp's place In the big series. "Swede," who is twenty-three years old. started playing in Ogden as a sec ond baseman. He covers lots of terri tory, so he was shifted to short, where his wide ranging could be used to bet ter advantage. He didn't stay long at Ogden, but soon graduated into the Pa cific Coast league, where his ambition, his aggressiveness and his long hitting soon won him fame with the Los Angeles club. Risberg came to the Sox last spring. He hadn't been touted nearly as highly as had McMullin and Terry, who pre ceded him from the coast by a year, but he was put at short, told that was his i job. and to sink or swim. "Swede" has been swimming ever since. CLAUDE WILLIAMS Born at Springfield, Mo., in 1891. Claude Wil liams. White Sox southpaw, started his professional career with his home town club in the old Kansas-Missouri league. This was in 1911. Williams moved up to the Southern in 1912. starting with Nashville. Tenn.. but he failed to tnake good and was farmed to Marshalltown in the Ap palachian. Brooklyn took him to start the 1913 season, but returned htm to Nashville, for which club he won eigh teen and lost twelve games. Detroit gave him & trial in the spring of 1914 and sold him outright to Sacra mento. Cal. In 1?15 h-? was with Salt Lake City. Utah, and cujoyed his banner year, winning thirty-three and losing twelve games. He joined the Sox in 19 IS and now is one of Rowland's regu-; lars. tibi ' . ; TvSh- V- .i 1 plots r r-iiU vzs?t5njafi r;D JOHN COLLINS "Shano" is no longer a regular, but he's a mighty valuable man for the White Sox just the same, and if McGraw. as seems probable, depends "upon left-handers in a majority of the games, John is apt to play a big part in the world's series. Collins was born at Charlestown, Mass.. in 1886. After the usual ama teur and semipro experience he obtained a position as shortstop with the Haver hill, Mass.. team, in the New England league. That was in 1907. The next year he was back with the semipros, but in 1909 he made his real start as a pro fessional player, signing with Hartford, Conn., in the Connecticut league and playing eighty-eight games at second. The White Sox bought Collins in 1910. and he's been with them ever since, playing the outfield and occasionally dabbling at first. "Collins is a fair thrower, a fair fielder and a fair hitter, but he surely can hammer southpaw pitching, and for that reason he's a handy man for the Sos to have around right now. I CM MRRRIS- BLEW HIMSELF TO II BID REPUTATION By H. C. HAMILTON (UnltaJ Preas Staff Correspondent.) NEW YORK, Oct. 3. When Carl Morris proved Fred Fulton's complaints were justified by fouling Fulton re peatedly in their last meeting he earn ed himself a reputation that will pre vent his ever reaching- anything higher than the spot he now holds in the eyes of pugilism. San Francisco, for instance, has serv ed notice that it wants none of the "professional bruiser." And." following this lead, cities in all sections of the country where boxing is allowed have relieved themselves of de cided ideas concerning the man who .. . ''--'iK- i . ( 1 , 5i r .: N- is J I " ,J "-fW . 'i Ml j once won on a foul by Fulton only to have it charged that he was the real fouler, and then to foul Fulton so re peatedly that it was necessary to stop the mill. Matt Hinkel. combining- with other promoters, has barred Morris from com petition in bouts under his direction. The other jiromoters have agreed not to allow his appearance. Whether Carl ever will fight again depends on some promoter willing to abrogate this agreement or upon one who did not enter into it. Carl punched himself Into & fine state with bis head when he lost to Fulton. Benny Leonard is not going to bar negroes from competition for the world's lightweight championship. Just before he took on Leo Johnson a short time ago for a ten round bout in New York he announced that every negro who proved himself worthy of a match for the title could have it. Leonard has rather startled the box ing fans by the willingness with which he is meeting contenders for his crown. It has been the habit of lightweight champions here of late to fight only semi-occasionally against some boy who really had a chance to beat him. Benny's first owonent was Johnny Kil bane, the lad every one said would at least outpoint the New Yorker. The success he has had. too. In de feating every opponent, mainly with quick right-hand sledge hammer blows puts previous lightweights of recent years out of consideration. COLONIALS OPEN SEASON SUNDAY The Colonial A. C. will open their football season Sunday, October 7th, at Gary, when they meet the Gary Techs. This will be the first game played by each team this-season and a hard bat tle is expected. Captain Maginot, is confident tliat ho has a team which will bring victory for the Colonials. This game will be played for the benaflt of Company F of Gary. s ' 1 V i ' ,N ft ft f.
