Only the series can decide the etltv j

year. r
With the consideration of White , e

ants comes the problem of what world j 1
series umpires will do about the ?o- j h
called shine-ball. j d
If there is such a thing as the shine-1 I
ball and if it has contributed to Ci- i h

the efficiency of Chicago's mainstay 1 r
would be greatly weakened should v
world series arbiters rule it out. a
But leaving the shine-ball out of con- p
sideration let us look over the pitrh- c
era as they appear at the close of the f
season. a
Rowland is prepared to send into v
the firing line a versatile assortment s
of pitchers. u
Cicotte. Faber and Russell probably I
will carry the bulk of the work. In r
American league circles it is believed v
that the Giants will have more trouble I
with Red Faber than the other two. 1*
Faber is death on left-handed cat- e
ters. Ty Cobb has hit less ngainst the r
Titian-haired one than any otnor t
pitcher In the league today. But outside

McGraw'i heaviest bitters, are right- a
