Keokuk Must Win

Locals and Port Madison in
Annual Contest Here This
Fort Madison has defeated Burling'
ton and hopes to trim Keokuk, the
other members of the big three, for
the southeastern title. But Madison
does not appear so unusually strong.
Burlington has a weak team this
year, through the loss of most of its
veterans and the Madison victory
over that squad can be discounted.
Now If Keokuk can defeat Fort
Madison, the locals will knock the
props out of the Gem City's claim for
a portion of the state honors. If
Keokuk can even play a tie score, the
state dope will be messed up.
Keokuk has lost to Milton, whiclt
does not meet Fort Madison. Fort
Madison has defeated Burlington and
Fairfield. If Keokuk wins Saturday,

Dodgers Have Punch.
The Dodgers are going to be a
truculent lot in today's contest. They
found yesterday that their punch can
carry a knockout sting and they're
going to work it with more vim and
freedom on the Red Sox pitchers to
day than ever before. The Dodgers
are confident that before the shad
ows again engulf the flags and rubber
plants at Bbbets field they will have
kicked and beaten their way to even
terms with the Sox.
All the Dodgers have needed in this
series was actual proof that Bill Car
rlgan's fllngers were not the acme of
perfection. Having proved that, their
lighting spirit should bubble joyously.
The Red Sox were outgeneraled
and out-played every time the occas
ion for action arose yesterday. Bill
Carrigan's "air tight" Infield was
found to possess air holes, and al
though only one error pushed its way
into the box score, the dash and pep
in fielding that has been displayed in
the other title contests was missing.
The field tactics also were in favor
of Wilbert Robinson. He hit—and
ran and he sacrificed and the times
when he failed were few.
Undaunted Spirit.
History doesn't show any team with
the nndannted spirit of the Dodgers,
not even excepting the wonderful
Braves in 1914. The Braves got the
jump in their plunge to victory over
the Athletics.
While the Dodgers have bad to fight
from a corner where they were part
ly submerged by two defeats.
The forceful rushing tactics which
have nailed the hide of many a Na
tional league flinger to the gates of
Ebbets field, got Into full action yes
terday. Led by Jack Coombs and
Ivan Olson they took the scalp of
Carl Mays and are ready to repeat
today against Dutch Leonard or Ernie
Shore or any other slab artist Bill
Carrigan may elect.
The Dodgers had the backing of a
crowd which howled and cheered it
self blue in the face all through the
conflict. Only half the size of the
Boston crowds, the Brooklyn rooters
made twice much noise and went
through all the motions of an enthus

Ths Two Wsrvss.
The two kings of nerve, Coombs

in the running. Ooombs' clever box
work and the batting of Olson, de

rors. have put It right up to Rube

Up to the time Larry Gardner lifted
the ban over the -fight field wall for a
home run in the seventh Inning,
Coombs had been going fine. He had
allowed only six hits. That the slip

Reds got to Ooombs for two hits in a
row and two runs. Coombs' name to*

Coombs Gets Credit.
To Coombs must be given most of
the credit for .the victory the Dodgers
turned in yesterday. It was his pres
ence which inspired the Dodgers with
confidence that fired them with the
unreatrainable determination to win.
Veteran that he is, and cold as the
day was. Colby Jack turned himself
loosa. His fast ball whizzed over the
plate with all its old time speed 'and
he had a slow breaking curve at
times that stood the Boston champ
ions on their heads. It was evident
when Coombs called in Jeff Pfeffer
from center field to- finish the game
that a definite plan ef defense had
been agreed upon by the Dodger
strategists. They all knew what
Coombs was capable of doing If he
went at top speed. They knew, also,
that he could not work at top speed
for nine innings. To that end. then.
Pfeffer had been warming up almost
from the start of the game, and he
was ready when the break came.
