The best team won the world's championship in 1920. y This statement is often made and nearly as often disputed. It Is seldom that the experts agree on what the losing team might have accomplished with better breaks in the luckv This is one "of those times, however. The critics unanimously united in a dec laration that the Brooklyn Dodgers could not have won under any cir cumstances. They were up against the class and it turned the scales after tjie third game. The weaknesses of, the Brooklyn team were never barer! so shamelessly to thcworld in the National League as when the Cleveland team exposed them in the world's series. Man for man, position for position, the Dodjrers did not measure up to their adversa ries, with the possible exception of Ivy Olson, who outshone Joe Sewell. Cleveland Had Quality.

GARPENTIER PUTS LEVINSKY AWAY T Former Bridgeport Man Makes Poor Showing Against French Boxer. Georges Carpentier, heavweight champion of Europe, knocked out Bat tling Levinsky, light heavyweight champion of America, in (the fourth round of a one sided contest last night in the ' Jersey City baseball grounds in the presence of 15,000 persons. The knockout blow, a short right to the jaw, was delivered after one minute and seven seconds of boxing in the fourth round. Levinsky was in a neu'tral corner at the time he received the blow and he fell through the ropes and lay on his back on the edge of the ring platform, where he was counted out by Referee Har ry Ertle. The Frenchman left the ring at once, and Levinsky on being assisted to his corner received the at tention of his seconds, who apparent ly had considerable' trouble in reviv ing the beaten man. It was th worst looking bout that Levinsky ever put up. The cleverness and ring generalship he had exhibit ed in all previous bouts were missing and he fougWt like an awkward no vice. He did not land one effective blow during the entire four rounds, and did not seem to be able to get out of his own tracks, elt alone avoid the attack of his opponent. The Frenchman cut loose In two rounds, the second, in which he scor ed Itwo knockdowns, and the fourth, m which he administered the coup de grace. -Carpentier was a top heavy favor ite and there was an abundance of money .to back him for a knockout in four rounds. This condition of af fairs, coupled with the palpably poor contest put up byr the Battler, gave the onlookers an - unpleasan't impres aion. - : King of Horses Now Holds Five Records Man O' War, in" running the mile and a. quarter in 2:03 in his match race witn ki iiarton at Windsor, ac complished another remarkable feat from a time standpoint.

VICTORIOUS CLEVELAND BASEBALL TEAM ' Zr ii-iiiiu.j.u.iLi ii j m i -" 5 51 I Cleveland In Furore Over Winning Series Tris Speaker Climbs Into Grand Stand at Conclusion of Last Game and Kisses His Gray Haired Mother Her Congratulations Coihe First. Cleveland. O.. Oct 13 Wltb. thei fifth city of tlte United States- in the matter of population definitely assur ed of being the first city of the base ball universe for at least 12 -months; Cleveland today settled back to en joyment of the world's-championship baseball honors brought here Dy Jim Dunn's Indians when they defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers S to 0, yester day and captured the annual series by five games to two. i Cleveland, 42 years a hanger-on In professional baseball. turned Its thoughts today to devising new ways of showing appreciation of thei prowess of the athletes who finally made this city the world's baseball capital. Although several watches, medals, automobiles, loving cups and half a dozen floral wreaths of unusual size have been presented to the winning players by appreciative fans, Cleve land believes it has done little for the American Leaguers and is getting ready to let the world know just how it feels about possessing a champion ship ball club. The first of a series of celebrations will be held tonight and Mayor -Fitzgerald -has issued a proclamation calling on all good citizens within walking or riding - distance Of this metropolis to be present tonight at Wade Park and pay official homage to Tris Speaker and his tribe. When the players go home they probably will be honored further, for Sandusky, O., already Is arranging a big home-coming for Elmer Smith. Speaker Kisses Mother, i From the time little Joe Sewell made his ,wonderful stop of Kon etchy's grounder, ending the series, and Tris Speaker climbed into the stands to kiss his gray-haired mother. Cleveland has been, in a furore. Stanley Coveleskie pitched himself into the world series hall of fame by throwing back the Dodgers three successive times, and also equalled some of the greatest pitching feats in history. Only one man Christy Mathewson has surpassed the Cleve lander's work in the biggest games in baseball. Mathewson pitched three shut-out victories back in 1905. Cove leskie pitched three games; allowed two runs, 15 hits, walked only two men and, what is most remarkable of all, threw the sphere plateward for an average of only . 87 times each game. " Cleveland's superiority " over the National Leaguers was evident in' the series, for the American League chamnions out hit. out played and out guessed their senior circuit rivals. Coming into the series with a pitch ing staff considered the best jn either ion em TSrooklvn went out with a bat- torpd srronTi of hurlers. only two of whom Grimes and Smith were able o nitch winning ball. Ana O-rimes nnri Smith both eot their beatings. With the bat Cleveland hung up a team average of .244 to .200 for Brooklyn. Fielding figures give Krooklvn an advantage of .976 to 925. However, few will contend Cleveland's superior defense at crit ical moments.. . Miller Was Strong. Only in one branch of inside base ball did Brooklyn show real super ior! tv; so far as the spectator could see. That was in the almost uncan ny ability of Catcher ,uiier xo caitcn the Indians hit and run . and base stealing signals. 'Five times in the vm- E-ames here the Brooklyn back stop called the turn by signalling for Coveleskie Replaces Ed Walsh As Present Day Spit-Ball King Cleveland Giant's Work in Great Work of Bridgeport Manager Who Made , White Sox Famous in 1906.

The lanky Pole, with three victories to his credit, has emblazoned his name inrthe annajs of baseball history as one of the greatest world's serie3 pitchers of all and bis brilliant victory recalls the gr.-iat work ofgood old Ed.

Each time the play was broken up and (the Cleveland base runner easily trapped. The pitching superiority of Cleve land's trio cf flingers is indicated in the scores of the games. Backing up Coveleskie's almost unheralded work, Walter (Mails came . through with IS 1-3 shutout innings including a three hit game and Jim Bagby piS.eb.ed two ' good contests, winning one and losing one. - George Uhle, secuiiu avrxixs uuiivi, .uiwucu. f-. j i Caldwell, who, was knocked out of the box in on-e inning, fell down.

The othesr pitchers were hammered without favor. Many Record. Fall. Numerous records of minor im portance were broken in the series, but standing above all were Wams ganss unassisted triple play, and El mer Smith's home run with the baseg full. Tha Brooklyn club today was on its way back home where it will dis band until next season. The eastern players were generous In praise foi- their conquerors, frankly admitting that the best team won. Two Touchdowns In Yale Team's Practice New Haven, Oct. 13. Two touch downs were made by Aldrich for the Tale varsity in its scrimmage yester day afternoon against the - scrub eleven. One of them was made on a line plunge alter itne varsity, in close formations, had rushed the ball to the iflve-yard . line.

He says he was promised $50,000 and has received only $15,uuu. Series Just Closed Recalls ed, that the spitball pitcher must go Dy xne Doards. isoin major leieuea have agreed to abolish the moist de livery, but in justice to such fellows as Govey, it seems that some ruling should be made to permit the old timers to continue. The Indians, as a team, are sure to be a factor in the American. League pennarit race of 1921, but if the 'spitball rule holds thev will be sdre to miss Coveleskie's effectiveness In the box next year. Taken as a team, however. Speaker s tribe are sure to figure strong in the race next year, for there never has been a ball club with more fighting SPThe Dc-dger3 have no alibi. Their defeat will be summed -up in a few words uttered by Ed. Eonetchy: "Wa were fighting to make runs without as many men on. bases as the Indians hs.d," said Koney, "and that simp'lyfme&nt that we were not hit ting iica they did."
