By SAM CRANE. ' BOSTON, MASS., May 29. Manager George Stalling- has done so well with the Boston Braves that they are dividing' popularity among local fans about on a fifty-fifty basis with the world's champion Red Sox. There was a time, and not so long ago, that the National league clab here had nothing to go" on but the past reputation of the 79's. when Harry Wright swept ail before him with the famous old Boston Red Stockings. The advent of xh. American league into the Hab appealed to lovers ot baseball by the, much more pro gressive spirit manifested by the new management than the old Boston triumurs Soden. Conaht' and Bill ings, who, with their old-fashioned ideas and New England- conservatism, refused to take warning at "the hand writing on the wall" and kept plod ding along at the same old gait they had set so cumbersomely for 20 years or so. They refused to buy players or to fix up their dilapidated old South Knd grounds, foolishly imagining that they could not possibly lose their old National league clientage. Speed B Mine t Vm, The triumvirs, who did a whole lot for the national game in their iwn city and in others, finally .did decide to -ell out their interests, but that did not seem to improve the situation. The younger organisation, under the shrewd direction and advanced ideas of president "Ban Johnson. toaK sedate old Boston by storm and the "Speed Boys, then under the management of Jimmy Collins, surged to the front in popu larity and patronage and left the Na tional league flat. ' This was the situation when James Gaf fney. of New York City, bought the controling interest in the Boston Na tional league club and with Johnny Ward as manager got in the entering wedge that ultimately put the club on its feet again. Ward retired from the managership, 'but president Gaf fney had established himself and dab as progressive, nptodate anrwith a cor rect under Ending of what Boston needed in tue way of advanced base ball. Braves Hare Improved. The new president and owner made a ten-strike Jn securing the services of George Stallings as manager, and to that fact is due the present popu larity of the Braves. Stallings had little to work on in the way of players, but with bis customary energy- and experience with clubs and players be soon welded his team into a winning aggregation, one that is feared by all of their rivals. The Giants found the Braves to be greatly improved, losing both games of a doubleheader to the Stallings crew. SCOOP THE CUB REPORTER What's a Paper Compared to a Perfectly Good Leg?

"Come Back" Is Hard For a Pitcher Jeff Overall, Once a Star for the Cabs, Finds It Difficult Work to Get Back to Form Again and Pitch Winning BalL CHICAGO. ILL. May 29. Can a pitcher "come back"' after he has been in retirement for two years? This was the question that worried the followers of the Cubs when it was announced that Jeff Overall would hurl for Johnny EVers team again this season. So far this campaign it looks as If 0erall would fail in his attempt to do a "come back." ' But. then, it is 'till earl j. and mayrfe the big right hander will start burling winning nail when the real hot weatner comes. If Overall comes back, though, and does good work for the remainder of the season, he will have upset a pre cedent of the national pastime. The law of baseball is that when a player pitcher or other has been away from the diamond for more than one season there is little chance of his coming back and playing- as well as he did before he quit. t It was in 1910 that Overall pitched his last ball for the Cubs prior to the present season. In this year he helped pitch the Bruins to a National league pennant, and hurled good ball in the world's championship series. He wound up the season 'with a .687 percentage, winning 12 games and losing six. In the world's series he worked only one game, and allowed only six bingles. He was pitted against Chief Bender, who held the Cubs to three bingles. and. of course. Jeff was forced to take the short end of the count. When Jeff was in his prime that is, when he was taking his regular turn on the firing line for the Bruins, two years ago he relied on curves and speed with which to fool the op position. This was changed though, when he tried to do a "come back." Instead of using his curves and speed. Jeff announced he owned a spitball that was even better than anything hi owned before he went "into retirement. During his retirement Jeff worked his gold mine in California and pitched several games for independent clubs on the coast. The gold mine and independent contests did not bring an overly large amount of coin to his pockets, though, and that is why Jeff Overall is making valiant efforts to do a "come back." Maybe he will succeed, and maybe he won't. One thing certain, though, in order to do so, he must hurl bet ter ball than he has so far this campaign. BASEBALL RESULTS Wean!

When you bought your car you didn't choose it because you happened to like the carburetor or because of its thick upholstery or even because of its famous motor. You got right down to the bottom of the question. You compared various cars point by point until you finally found the car that came the closest to combining all the good points you wanted to find in your car. Why not buy your tires in the same way? Why not size up the various brands point by point and pick the tire - that combines all .those strong features that a good tire ought to have. You want high mileage You will get from 25 to 50 per cent, more mileage from United States Tires than any tire ever yielded up to the time the United States Tire Company was organized. You want to avoid rim cutting United States Dunlop Tires are the only tires ever guaranteed against it. Air capacity and diameter are important No tire ever made has a larger average air capacity or larger diameter measurements than the United States Dunlop. Get a few cross sections and prove it with pour own eyes. You want an easily manipulated tire The round toe makes the United States Dunlop the' most easily manipulated tire on the market. But the prime essential is fabric strength Strong fabric means not only high mileage but protection against blow-outs. By a process which we have perfected and control exclusively we have practically doubled the strength of United States Tires and reduced blow-outs proportionately. These are the good points you want to find in your tires. They govern the size of your tire bills. Four-factory cooperative methods (used exclusively in the making of United States Tires) have enabled us to combine all of them in this one tire. iwJihMHllMiiKliBWH8yilM?9a BsassssssslisBsssssssssfBssssliBsVsssssssssssss Where They Play Friday.

Squires last battle of any account was in the fall of 1909 when he met Bill Lang in Malbourne and was put out in the final round of a 20-round battle. That took the fight out of Bill for a time and he went to live on his station (or farm) in New South Wales. When Billy Papke and the American boxers were over there in 1910 an ef fort was made to match Squires with Papke for the light heavyweight title of that country, but Bill would not re enter the ring, claiming that he could not get into condition. The fact was that Bill wanted a nice chunk of money for the chanpe against Papke, but when the stadium offered to make good he backed water.

There is no need to in clude Jim Jeffries in the lot as Jeff has given the lie to the statement that he intended to make another attempt to come back. Efforts are being made to bring about a welterweight bout that will settle the world's champion in that division. Snowy Baker, the Australian promo ter, is doing his best to get Johnny Siivnmctra th 'Rritiah rHflmninn and I Ray Bronson. the claimant of the American title, together, and it looks as though they might be matched be fore Summers completes his contract with the Sydney stadium. Regarding the matter CoL Dyer of London, writes as follows: "It is stated here that the next opponent for Johnny Summers out in Australia will be Ray Bronson. If this bout ' Is fixed up it should go some way towards settling the vexed question of the world's wel ter title. Summers can easily make 142 pounds and If necessary, can do 140 pounds ringside, and a slam with Bronson would be made at 142 ring side. Bronson lost to Sid Burns here two years ago on an alleged foul, after breaking even all through to the 19th round. He was far from being in good shape then and did not appear to me to care whether he won or lost. Burns has been soundly beaten by Summers since then and is out of the title race, having also been beaten by the new star, Tom McCormick. The latter is considering a proposal to go out to Sydney, but I question if he will make the trip. He is desperately anxious for a title battle with Summers and is looking for defeat on a foreign shore. As the best of the challengers he is j dale belt next season, when Summers will be home again. Johnny has writ ten home about his contest with Frank Picato, in which he says that Frank gave bim a tough bout and he was far from confident of victory until the finish came in the 19th round. "I have just learned, too. that Matt Wells has definitely made np his mind to jonrney out to Australia and has signed up for three contests under the management of Snowy Baker of Syd ney. One of these is certain to be with Hughie Mehegan. who beat him on a foul over here and subsequently lost to Wells on points after 20 rounds of furious fighting. The next battle be tween the pair should pack the famous woiseiy mat Doxing was of the great est benefit to the soldiers and na-.j-men and he wanted to see that dav when boxing would be adopted by ail classes of young men. What a contrast! Some of the bis gest men in England trying to help the boxing game along and similar men in this country endeavoring to tear it to pieces. However, there is hope, for some of the more broadminded men of the states are beginning to favor the game and pay less attention to the mollycoddle element. TALK GOLFRS IKFKAT CORXKLL.
