Early this spring, while the ball
clubs were still in their training camps
I ventured a predicltion that the St.
Louis Browns would have to be seriously
considered in the 1917 American
league race
At least three managers In the circut
took exceputlon to this prediction,
figuring the Browns could not possibly
finish in the first division.
Since that time I have watched the
Browns successfully maul the teams
of two of these managers and expect
to see the performances repeated on
the outfit representing the third before
very long
At the time the Browns were at
Pallstino they did not look like a great
ball club. They don't now, but they
look like a winning ball club, which
! in me long run ia just u? guuu.
The club is made up of a het.rogenous
combination of ballplayers, a
few great ones, a few mediocre, some
rookies, some players who had been
turned back to the minors as not good
enough for other clubs, molded into
i an organization which is now playing
about the fastest and brainiest game in
I the league.
There's no secret about it, hut the
answer is Fielder Jones.
Jones is a peculiar chap. He Is
gloomy by nature and a grouch by cultivation
?c in upstage. He is not
at all ii.. v iiis ballplayers don't
like iiii". bu t'.'.ey respect him and
they w . '. for him, and that's all he
carc3 about. I
There's no secret to Jones' success.
He has baseball brains and he gct3
results. His men play brainy baseball
because bo furnishes the strategy.
He is uncanny with pitchers and 917
will give him at least two great pitchers.
Sothorim, the Coast league iroij
man, and Tom Rogers, from the Southern
Last season the Browns looked j
hopeless, but Jones started a drive in
July which landed them in fifth place,
78 points behind tlio winning Boston
Red Sox.
Jones started his drive In April this
year anu nes ueen winning imjuj
consistently from Chicngo, Detroit aiul
Cleveland, three of the hardest clubs in
the league to beat.
Take a quiet tip. Watch Fielder
Jones and his Browns. It's our guess
that he'll he there or thereabouts when
the curtain drops in October.

Fairmont High won from the Rlvesville
nine in a' hot game at South Side
Park yesterday, the Rlvesvllle aggregation
proving even stronger than was
expected. The locals got an early
lead and by good work succeeded in
maintaining it to the end of the game
which, resulted 6-2 in their favor.
Rivesville showed the effect of
"Goose" Ward's coaching and put up
a good fight.
