MAYS TO PLAY WITH YANKEES. UNTIL TUESDAY Tris Speaker is 31. He was born in Hubbard City, Texas. This is his fourth season with the Indians. Owner Dunn bought him from the Red Sox. Two players and cash, the purchase price totaled 355,000. For eight years he had starred with the Red Sox. Previously he played with Cleburne and Houston In the Texas League and was farmed to Little Rock a part of the season. He's been batting over .300 since he became a regular big leager. He's one of the best outfielders the big leagues have ever seen. KEEP iYOUR EYE ON THE CLEVELAND INDIANS WITH SPEAKER ON THE JOB (By Fred Turbyville.) Tri Speaker, new Manager, is put ting the jazz in the Cleveland Indians. Keep your eye on that team. The Cleveland fans one big wish has come true. Ever since Owner Jim Dunn came through with cash and players, totalling $55,000 for the won derful outfield star, 90 per cent of Cleveland bandom has hoped and pray ed that Speaker would be made man ager of the club. He now holds that job and Cleveland is happy. He was made manager , following Lee Kohl's resignation. One hundred per cent pep on the field and at bat the Indians are off to a new start. The team is good. It's outfield ranks with the best. Its infield is ery strong. Its catching staff is the envy of seven other clubs. And Its pitching crew is fair. With the responsibilities of the man agership on his shoulders Speaker is hammering the ball and bids fair to climb back into the .300 class where he has been these many years. Rival clubs in the American League the White Sox. the Yankees and Tig ers now fear the Indians. Speaker's promotion to manager means more to . them than would have meant the ac quisition of another strong pitcher, which the club has been after all sea son. Rival club managers know that Tris Speaker is one of the brainiest men in baseball today. He has been Lee Fohl's right-hand man ever since he jumped out of a Red Sox uniform into the spangles of the , Redskins. He is 31 years old, knows the American League as well as anyone. Is' popular with his men, and Is himself a star of the first water, fully able at all times to set the pace for his players. Owner Jim Dunn of the Indians Sunny Jim they call him has spent lots of money to land- a pennant in the Forest, City. He has had wonder ful ' support from the fans, but the fans began to kick this year. In sev eral close games at League Park the injection of certain pinch hitters or pinch pitchers brought defeat to the Indians. ' Of course, there were many times when Fohl's snap Judgement brought victory, but fans forget those, so easily. Lately the team suffered through the injuries of Chapman and Graney. Both veteran stars are back now and in fine sheje. Lee Fohl. a' wonderful developer of young pitchers, will be free to keep the Indian battery msn going at top speed. That will be his job for the remainder of the season and at the same salary he drew as manager. Jim Dunn is no piker. The team has had two bad slumps. Two is enough for any team and fans and players believe there will be no more. There is fight in the team. Speak er, himself, is full of it. He's not a rowdy by any means despite the recent row with Chick Gandll irtvChlcago. Yet he can scrap, when scrapping is neces sary to win games and it most always is after the halfway mark has been passed in an American League sea son. If the Indians can show their heels to. the other contenders this season It will be the first pennant for the Ohio metropolis. And Cleveland fans are mighty hopeful. Chicago Detroit . . . .

Wool- wine on the eleventh floor of the Hall of Records, was held responsible to day by public officials for the dynamit ing last Sunday of the home of Oscar Lawler, a prominent attorney. - Mc Gwire had been told that he was to be indicted for the offense. His death came as a dramatic climax to a lengthy questioning by District Attorney Wool- wine. Confronted with evidence that officials said pointed directly to him as being responsible for the dynamit ing, which nearly cost the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Iawler. McGwire rushed to a window in the room, eluded officers who tried to restrain him and hurled himself to the pavement, eleven floors below. He was dead when picked up. 1 ( ljy : 5 1T A.Disiinctive.Bovora&e At hotels, restaurants, drag steres. grocery stores, fountains and wherever beverages are sold Order it by the case from your dealer CENTRAL CONSUMERS COMPANY Mcerpontes LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY Pertsacola Ambrosia Company START PROBE ON IMPRISONMENT OF MEMPHIS EDITOR f. iqukU 1 PENSACOLA LAND COMPANY IS NOW ORGANIZED HERE laiianassee, , Aug. 7.
