Can Turn Back the Moran; Clan. By JOHNNT EVERS. (Written for the United Pres«.) Chicago. Oct. 4.—Kerr's pitching covers everything. There Is little els* to be said about the third game of the big series. The little fellow made good the prediction that he would causp the j Reds trouble. He pitched in wonder ful style and I believe there has never been a better performance In all world series games of the past. But the Rede should not feel ®t ell' discouraged by this defeat. Kerr would have beaten any team yesterday. He was figured to cause trouble and he did the Job to the queen's taste, hut his game does not change my prediction that the Reds will win the aeries one iota. I look for them to go and win on the seven games. The Sox have not another pitcher to cause them worry. The break in yesterday's game came In the second inning, when Ray Fisher, In his haste to make a force play at second on Felsch's tap threw the ball Into center field putting Jackson, who had single on third and the batsman on second. Qandil's single did the rest. However, without the break there Is no doubt that the Sox would have won anyway on little Kerr's pitching. Hand It to him. The fielding was good on a surpris ingly slow and soggy field. Groh stood out, fielding in his usual sensational style. Weaver was In fine form. It Is mv opinion the two best ''hot comer" men in both leagues are In this series. The probable pitchers today ars Ring and Clcotte. If Clcotte works, Wlngo will catch for the Reds.

American naval forces In the Ad riatic were last reported to Include two cruisers and a number of destroyers. ARREST EMBEZZLER AT LOS ANGELES Lob Angele?, Cal..

JIMMY RING HEAVES STERLING BRAND OF BALL AND HIS MATES GIVE HIM EXCELLENT SUPPORT Comlskey Park, Ohlcago, Oct 4.— Eddie Clcotte closed the Gicotte accomplished his own downfall. Two errors by the I Sox twirler in the fifth inning were direotly responsible for the only runs of the game. And in the seoond inning, with the bases loaded with his teammates. Gicotte failed in the pinch and passed up an opportunity to deliver a hit that would have put the game on ice. Eddie tried valiantly and drove a vicious grass cutter toward right field, but Morry Rath saved the situa tion for the Reds by a sterling stop and a throw that beat Gicotte 1 to the bag by half a step. Jimmy Ring today killed forever his title as the jinx pitcher of the Reds. The young right-hander ? (itched a- magnificent game of ball, almost as good as that urned in yesterday by Dickie Kerr. Only throe bite were, registered off his delivery and one of these was a very fluky double by Joe Jackson in the seoond inning. ROUSCH MISJUDGES BALL. Rouscli played Jackson's easy offering in miserable fashion, totally misjudging the ball. What should have been an easy out was thus turned into a two-base hit. As a comeback pitcher Cicotte oovered himself with glory. He was steady at all times and worked as well as he has in any game this season. i The game was sprinkled with spectacular plays in the field. Duncan and Neale each turned in a wonderful oatoh that cut off three sure three-base hits. In the ninth Heinie Groh, the I Red third baseman made a diving catch of a line drive from Liebold's bat for the final out. i Buck Weaver, at third for the Sox, fielded in faultless style. Ray Schalk made one of his characteristic captures of a foul ifly in (lie ninth inning when he sprung to a box and balanced j himself on a rail on his stomach, and snared Groh's foul from among the dodging heads of the crowd. RED8 HAVE ADVANTAGE. It is now three and one for the Reds, and the Sox have Jdropped the advantage gained by means of Kerr's great left j arm yesterday. I« Tomorrow will probably see Hod Eller on the mound for j Moran. I Claude Williams is regarded as Gleason's likely choice, ; though the White Sox manager may decide to send Kerr back iafter a one-day rest in a desperate attempt to put his charges iback in the running. 1 Today's game was played in one hour and thirty-seven I minutes. The largest crowd of the series to date shouted itself into a frenzy throughout the game. | By HENRY L. FARRELL (United Press Staff Correspondent.) Comlskey Park, Chicago, Oct. 4.—A grim tenseness prevaded the atmos phere of Comlskey Park today when the White Sox and Reds met In the fourth game of the world series. Every action of the athlete« on the field revealed their knowledge that to day's game may well be the turning point of the championship struggle. On the opening day at Cincinnati, the Sox, brimming with confidence, ap pt rently regarded their task as a mere pastime and after their two steam rol ler victories at home, the Reds yes terday took aboard the cock«ureness they had battered out of the Chicago ans. it was different today. The men on their field practice went about their ork with marked seriousness and de ter initiation. Their attitude was re flected in the crowd. The fans sniffed the real buttle scent In the air. Before the Reds went on the field, Manager Mnra.n was hesitating wheth er to start Jimmy Ping or Walter Rue* ther. Ring was his overnight choice, but the Red players thems«»lves be lieved Kuether might he called upon if Clcotte pitches for the 8ox. Gleason also was mentally debating ills box sélection. Eddie Cicotte, who I uh begged for a chance fo redeem himself, was figured as a likely choice. An hour before game time the bleachers, which showed a couple of thousand vacant seats, were Jammed and every foot of space in bofh pav ilions was packed. The stands and boxes, however, were filling slowly. Rut indications were a capacity crowd would be on hand. The Sox, singly and in pair*, grad ually filled their pit behind third base. When all were recounted for they went through the usual batting prac tice. Mayer and Sullivan sent tip the hulls for them to hit. The Sox were given a hearty welcome by their root ear. * Au» war* etUm X»* FOURTH GAME FIGURES. Total attendance. 34,363. Gross receipts, including war tax, $97,807.00. Players' share, $62.815.78.
