Bat .for the - home run clout by Mordecai Brown in the fourth inning, Dennis would .hare obtained a well-earned shut-out Tictory. Both pitchers twirled : a beautiful game of ball but Den- - nil was more effective with men on bases, whereas tbe Islanders v bunched three hits in the second and third innings for as many earned runs. In the fifth inning Krehmever came tearing in towards the plate on an attempted squeeze play. Dixon had the ball wating for him. Instead of a fall away book slide, v Krehmeyer hurled his body through ' the air, the spikes ripping Dixon's -.- leg to shreds and grazing the skin . of bis lee.

There were somethlnc over 1.400 naid ad missions to the game, which was considered good In view of the ad verse circumstances nndir which the opening was staged. The Is landers had played at home for a olid week before Terre Haute came. The first aeries with Peoria as to have been played la that city wHh the Islanders returning to open with, the Tractors on May 5. Saturday's contest was one of those hit and miss affairs with the Tighemtn fighting uphill all the way in as effort to undo the dam age that occurred la the first round, poniocrty was relieved in the third Inning by Ben Jones. Dougherty was a bit too wild. Jones pltehsd loos ball and kept tho Tot jwore down, but the Islanders could not solve the southpaw delivery of Palm. Score: ; Terre Haute' AB. R. H. P. A. E.

Augustana again scalped Lom bard college Saturday afternoon at the Lombard field in Galesburg. The local boys trimmed them on April 17 to thr tune of 11 to 6, and re peated the act last Saturday with a score of 18 to 4. Loose fielding and poor base run ning on the part of the Galesburg aggregation were responsible in large measures for the wide margin gained by the Augieites, but the local ontfit had them outclassed in every department of the game. Mishey, Lombard's pitcher, waa re tired from the game in the third inning on account of a barked shin he acquired in a head-on collision with' Mnrphy, the catcher, whea both were trying to gather in a little pop-up. Wickstrom also was forced to leave the game la the fifth Inning on account of a wrench ed ankle which he acquired la slid ing to second. Angle succeeded In getting one home run, one three-bagger, one two-bagger, and two singles in the first inning. Bengston scored the home run and R. Palmer the triple aacker. This makes Angle's revenge for basketball complete. Augustana's lineup for Saturday's game waa as follows: R. Peterson, e; Dahlguiat, p; W. Swansea, lb; Benstoa.

For ten years Joe Jackson's main ambition has been to lead Ty Cobb at bat. Jackson batted over .400 one season and even then was beaten out. So far he has secured an impressive lead over his Geor gia rival, but two or three things can happen between May and Oc tober. The Giants and the Dope. Figured via the dope, the Giants looked to have one of the best clubs in baseball. The main strength of the team was a hard hitting, brilliant out field and a strong catching staff, with Barnes, Nebf, Benton, Toney and Douglas. ' Tbe catching was good but the infield only fair. Yet for the better part of three weeks now the New York club has been far off the trail, one of the big disappointments of the year. And the main break has been in the pitching coupled with weak hitting the two strongest looking sectors on the club. ' With better weather and this whore aa the yotiiffo New York ii "raris POKTLKHT Gran t land Rice pitching staff unkinked the Giants are sure to look better later on. But they must look 100 per cent better to have any shot at the flag. Once More. It has already become extremely evident that the AVhite Sox will again be vital factors in the Amer ican league race. They will be Cleveland's leading competitors' for the. Red Sox are not strong enough to continue srar- ring with the peak: The battle in 191S and again in 1919 found Cleveland challenging the leaders, and if Cleveland has to finish second again it will be through Chicago's strength. Any ball club that carries Eddie Collins, Buck Weaver, Ray Schalk, Eddie Cicotte and Joe Jackson isn't going to be very far behind when the autumn leaves begin to turn pink and brown again. The alleged dissension in the White Sox camp didn't last very long with the jo.000 bonus hung out for world series athletes at the end of the summer's hike. Not very many are going to dis sent themselves out-C;f a shot at 5,000 bucks in these distressing moments. ONE OP TIGHE'S PITCHERS BEATS CLINTON, 7 TO 0 The Dwitt, Iowa, baseball team needed a pitcher for yesterday. So Saturday they sent a request to Manager Jack Tighe of tbe Island ers for the loan of one. Jack sent them Cam Smith, young left hander, for the day. Dewitt was opposed by a team from Clinton. Net result of the Islander twirl er's visit to Dewitt: Eighteen Clin ton batsmen struck out; one, and one only one, got a hit; one was given a base on balls, and they scored not at all. Dewitt Von 7 to 0, and were not only aided by the remarkable pitching of the south paw, but also by his hitting. He got two-three baggers In his trips to the plate. Needless to say, the Dewitt fans offered to give him the town and make him mayor to stay with them this summer. SET NEW HOUR TO START PLAY; EVAS TO COME Week-Day Contests at Douglas Park to Begin Promptly at 3:15 O'clock. Evansville will slip over from Cedar Rapids tomorrow to engage Jack Tighe's Islanders in a three- game series at Douglas park. With all teams in the league bunched in the percentage column there is lit tle to learn as to the respective merits of each, but it is sufficient to say that the Evas can be counted upon to provide a scrappy exhibi tion. After Evansville comes Bloomington. Rock Island is out to get revenge for those first two defeats of the season. A change in the starting time of the week-day games was an nounced at the park yesterday. In stead of 3:45 o'clock the contests will commence promptly at 3:15. It is believed that this will meet with ' greater satisfaction from the fans inasmuch as the contests will be concluded in plenty of time to allow everyone to remain for the last out and still get home to an early supper. The 3:45 time has been found too late in the day be cause if the game drags it lasts till 6 o'clock and many have been forced to leave in the sixth and seventh Inning. The Sunday and holiday games will start at 3 o'clock. The new time went into effect to day. BRAVES, 7; GLUTS, 0. R.H.E.

C Realizes He Is In for Toughest BaU tie of His Career In SU Paul Boy. That "Goats" Doig of Spring Valley realizes he is in fnr a tousk engagement next Thursday night at the Empire rink when he clashes for 10 rounds with Tommy Comis key of St Paul is evidenced by the fact that he has obtained the ser vices of one Samuel Langford to train him. Sara and "Goats are now working out regularly at the Arcade' gymnasium in Chicago. Langford is attempting to impart J all the little fine points of the ring game to Doig, which he has learned through about IS years of conflict in. the squared circle. On the other hand, Comiskey Is under the special care and guid ance of Mike and Tommy Gibbons, premier exponents of the art of self-defense. Reports have it that Comiskey is absorbing the many in tracies of the scientiiic department of the riug game with a surprising rapidity and that trl-city fans will be amazed at his vast improve- ment when they glimpse him again this time. Doig's recent" victory over Den nis O'Keefe makes the coming show all the more interesting. While Comiskey did not .beat O'Keefe down here last fall by a large margin, nevertheless he shad ed the Chicago boy in a fast 10 round setto. If Comiskey can de cisively defeat Doig it will put him, into prominence all over the mid dle west, and prominence in ring circles is the means of obtaining the dollars and cents. It is need less to say that he will strive by every means in his power to bring about the downfall of the tough Spring Valley mauler. , Harry Lennon, manager ot com iskey, writes that ho is glad of this opportunity to match his fighter against Doig in view of Doig's de- cision over O'Keefe. He wants to prove to the fans around here that Comiskey is a better fighter than. O'Keefe, he says. He ends by sayi ing that if Doig is as good a man. as be Is billed, then the fans are lm for the classic event ot the sea son. Comiskey has become one of the most feared men in the welter weight division within recent months. The fact that Johnny Griffiths and Bryant Downey ran out of scheduled matches with him at Peoria is ample proof ot this. Downey and Griffiths are among topaotchers in the division and if they don't feel the inclination to take on the St. Paul Irishman, who in the division does, outside of pos sibly the champ himself. But then Comiskey is being worked alonpby stages to a match with Britton and when that comes he will no doubt be ready to wear the crown.
