%t —the wildest scramble mixed
up In a world's baseball series
progTam is now on full blast. Be
fore this pop-eyed series con
cludes there will be two baseball
clubs fit for the booby hatch and
200,000 ravln.g rooters running
about In dizzy circles, pursued
by an army of keepers fresh from
the "bughouse."
Of the battles up to date, the
teams not only have broken even,
but each hectic and nerve shat
tering battle has gone to the
final Inning—the final pitch, the
final out, where the frail margin
of a hair might have won or lost
all three conflicts. ir there 1b
any edge today, it belongs to the
Otants. McOraw has Tesreau,
Mat hew son and Marquard left,
while Boston has only Joe Wood.

liant yesterday when only a mir

working in one of the grandest
games of hi* career. Boston's
one weakness is a lack of gener

working iv circles, with no cen

Jn the fourth hattle today, Tea

fore the greatest, crowd ever wit
nessing a game. With even mid
dling weather, there will bo 40,

and If the gams breaks, cracks
and flashes as the others have
done», there will be the wildest
Kpuum of frenzy that ever tore
the welkin into strips or rattled
the beetling crags of Coogati's
Both teams today want rain. A
postponement means a fourth
game Saturday before a bigger
crowd than could l>e mustered to
day, and, consequently, more
money for the players.

All New York is wild over
Charles ("Jeff") Tesreau, the
coming pitcher of the National
league and who New Yorkers
say Is a Becond Ed Walsh.
Tesreau Is a blig, raw-boned,
southern farm boy, who was
born near Louisville, and, not
withstanding the adulation he
receives (there are more men and
boys outside the Polo grounds
watching him come out and ko
lv than there are at the door of
the Winter Garden on watf-h for
the chorus girls), he is keeping
his head much better than might
be expected.
i I presume he has taken a peep
Into Marquard's book, which
would show him how short-lived
is popularity. Marquard, after
being held aloft on a bed of roses
after his 19 straight games, haa
been dropped with a cold thud
since he has been unable to fool
the crack hitters of tbe National
league, and the bleachers shout
"Take him out," the first time
the umpire calls "Four balUs."
Tesreau is saving his money.
He lives at a little hotel near the
Polo grounds, about which there
Is a tradition that It once housed
George Washington for the night.

all primed for the fray, the fans
are today looking for a good

At the training camps of both
boxers the finishing touches will
be put on today as th» men are
reported to be in fine fettle.

He wears moderately good
clothes (Tesreau, not Washing
ton) and be ha« not adopted the
silk hoee fad. His only extrava
gance seems to be a splendid in
terrogation mark in diamonds on
his tie and a three-oarat diamond
on his left hand.
When he was recruited to the
big league he depended upon the
speed almost entirely. He said,
modestly, "My curve ball doesn't
amount to much and McGraw
and Mathewson got after me to
try the spliter, and it Is with
this that I am making my suc
Tesreau has been likened to
Ed Walsh in hla prowess with the
spit ball. He lacks Walsh's ex
perience and clever headwork,
however, but the ones who seem
to know say that he will keep
them guessing In the National
league next year, although Tes
reau tell* me he has not signed
as yet.

When the U. P. S. meets the
University of Washington in Se
attle Saturday they will have the
heaviest team which has been put
in the field in years, and most of
them* are veterans. While the
local men hardly hope for victory
they are expecting to give the
state school the surprise of the
season. Pierson, a new man at
fullback, is showing to advan
tage and weighs close to 20 0 in
uniform. Art 3m!th,, fullback,
who joined the team last night
for the season, is the lightest
man of the three backs, and he
weighs 175 pounds stripped. Ar
nold Tisch and Leo McQuarry
are the two halves, and they are
mooses who have had experience.
Captain Sedvis, quarterback, is
the lightest man on the entire
eleven, weighing 1 4 0 stripped. The
line weighs close to 200 pounds.
The proximity of the game with
the state "U" brings memories of
the way Beck, the U. P. S. cen
ter, played all around big Pres
ley last year. Beck is back In
hia old position this year. Coach
Pltehford is drilling his men in
some new plays with which he
hopes to make some good gains
against Dobie's warriors.
The second team of the U. P.
S. is strong and is looking for
some games. They will probably
go with the first team to Belling
ham, one week from Saturday,
when the lrst team meets the
Bellingham normal team, and
will play some eleven there. Fol
lowing is the line-up which
Coach Pitchford expects to use
