There will be changes In both the

possible Is being done this week to

Bbersole, who worked at quarter
last Saturday, probably will be shift
ed to the backfield, providing a com
petent man can be found to hold
down the quarter position.
McManus is being worked out for
this place but may not be able to
fill the position Saturday as he hurt
Lia ankle in practice last evening.
Wyllie and Neal are being given a
try out in the backfield and may be
given a chance to work against Ham
ilton. Neal, a veteran from last
year, just reported for practice this
week. Stadler and EJvans reported
thjg week also.
The Keokuk team la working on
several new formations and Coach
Crimmins expects to perfect a line
of attack that will overwhelm Ham
ilton. The team has some hard
games ahead—with Burlington, Fort
Madison, Hamilton and Quincy—and
opening'games will no doubt put the
squad in condition for those contests.

[United Press Staff Correspondent]
CHICAGO, Oct. 8.—More and more
becomes a probability that Eddie
Cicotte will not start the world ser
ies for the White Sox. Clarence Row
land, manager of the new American
league champions, had practically
made up his mind today that the logi
cal, most reasonable thing for him i3
to send Red Faber to the mound fo"
the first game.
Such strategy would give Rowland
a decided advantage and probably
would be an up-set for John McGraw's
well made intentions. By starting
Faber, Rowland would have the bene
fit of a good right hander, one of the
best in the league. The Giants fear
him, adding psychological chance to
real ability. If F&ber should win,
Rowland could afford to send in
some other heavist for the second
game, reserving Cicotte for opening
day in Kent York. Again would
Rowland possess the advantage, for
the Giants could be expected to be
trembling over an impending clash
with Cicotte, if they already had been
made to bow by the less brilliant
Faber.

Parks Not to Blame.
'If the Giants don't hit," said
Clarence Rowland, "blame it to good
pitching and not to Comiskey park.
It Is a f&ot that my hitters have done
their most fearsome execution this
year In Chicago. Felsfa, Jackson and
Eddie Collins hare done more than
60 per cent of theiF hitting in the
cZB
boS have^proved
the old argument of hitless Comiskey
park, but it is a fact that Collins and
Jackson have slumped just as much
on the road as at home. Detroit and
New York formerly were easy for
Eddie Collins, but he has not been
able to hit this year in those parks
until just recently.
"And here is another point some
folks are overooking. Collins and
Jack3on have been hitting at the
very top of their form in the last
few days. I expect them to keep it
up."
It seemed improbable that the In
dians and White Sox woud get to

test. It rained all morning and it
looked bad for the afternoon's
chances for dry weather. The White
Sox, however, reported for practice
and planned to talk over plans. To
morrow they will get their last work
out before the big games.
