June 26. Jack Dunn owner of tho Baltimore International league team, disgmsted with the lack of patronage here and the failuer of organized baseball to come to his aid. told Joe Kelly of the Toronto club. Friday that this would be his last week in Baltimore. Whether Dunn will accept the offer of a Richmond syndicate of $62,000 for 49 percent of the stock in his club or sell six of his players to the White Sox for $60,-000- and throw the balance of his live chattels on the open market, is the sole topic of conversation here among baseball men.

TRY NEWS-TIMES WANT ADS Special to The News-Times. Kalamazoo, Mich., June 2 5. South Bend took a decided brace Thursday over the playing of the day before and won from the. Kazooz without any trouble. Grodick was the only man on the Hoosier club who failed to get at least one hit, Stevenson having pounded three hits off Jacobson. The score was 8 to C. Two big innings with the bat and two bad innings for Jacobson and his playmates won the game for the Bend ers. In the fifth, the Hoosiers pushed in three runs and in the last they scored five times before they were stopped. The fifth inning scoring was nearly the cause of a riot, when the Kalamazoo players objected to Umpire Philbin's decision. Up to the seventh round the Kazooz never had a chance to score. Duffy was going along at great speed and in the first six frames, he allowed the Celery Pickers only four hits. In the last three periods his opponents were treated to six hits and a run in each of the last three sessions. Before the ninth round started, the game had been a fair exhibition of baseball. In that last period the Hoosiers got to Jacobson and hammer ed five hits out of him. Along with this gang of hits came a walk and the game was all sewed up. Friday afternoon the Benders and Kazoos meet in a double bill. Louder milk is slated to hurl the first game of the afternoon with Schorr in line to work the second contest.

RESULT OF REGATTA DIFFICULT 10 DOPE No One Varsity Crew is Favor ed in Racing Event on Hudson River. BY Fit AN Iv I. MEXKE. POUGUKEEPS1E, N. Y., June 20. The old shell and oca game w;s a cinch to dope out in comparison with the great problem that confronted about 7 5,000 visitors today as to which crew of the six entered would be fir.t to pit the finish line in the four mile varsity race that was the closing fea ture of the afternoon's intercollegiate regatta on the Hudson. In other years, it required no figur ing at all. Everyone upon arrival im mediately was assured that Cornell would sweep the river and that the best and quickest way of adding to the bank rool was to offer odds on Cornell against the field. But the situation was vastly different today. The weather favored no one crew. Had the Hudson been choppy it would have been conceded that Cornell's chances were enhanced, as the Ithaca boys can shoot a shell almost as well in rough water as in smooth. A hot sun shone over head and only a light breeze stirred in the morning, giving indications of dying away by sunset when the big race was to be rowed. There was quite a lot of talk la.ct night and today to the effect that Cor nell folks and some professional gamblers were offering even money on Cornrll against the jiHd, but it was j ist talk. As far as the laman could riuure o st the biu varsity rMc- w as An i t rare that is, anybody's but V.-. -opsin's.
