GAMES TOMORROtr. KransviUe at Rock Island. Bioemlngton at Moline, ' Terre Bauto at Cedar Rapids. Peoria at Boekford. Speaking about luclc and breaks Is the game, EvansvlUe certainly ot more than its share in the first fgme of the series yesterday after noon at Douglas park. The score wis 7 to 4 against the Islanders icd the Evas got all but one of those seven scores in the fifth in ning. It Just a wee bit of luck bad been with the Islanders In that frame this story never would have to be told in this manner. The Evas got four of the scratch iest kind of scratch hits in that round, not one of them going out of the infield, and with .the aid of two errors and a base on balls counted six runs at a time when Rock Island was Lading by three and things looked to be pretty well sewed up. Dougherty was pitching winning ball at the time. He had allowed one hit an Inning In the first, sec ond and third, and came through the fourth unscathed. Then in the fifth, Burst, first up, got a life at the Initial bag on Ga legos', boot. Cotrlas worked the Islander twirl er for four balls and two bases were occupied. Along comes Bash ing who cuts a hard one at Dough erty. The ball took a nasty bounce and the big fellow was able only to touch It with the tips of his gloved hind. That crowded the stations. Loftus sliced one down toward Smith at first base. It was a bard hit ball and added to that it pulled a funny stunt or two and made perfect fielding impossible. Burst registered with , the first run. , Meyers hit one at. Smith practically ' In the saino manner as Loftus and Cotrlas scored. Manager Tighe lent Cam Smith to the mound as relief. The bags were still popu lated and none were out The Evas has scored two rnnners. Groh was up and he proceeded to knock about eight fouls in attempting to reach one of Smith's left-hand speed balls squarely. He managed to slice an other nasty one towards Ben Smith at first base, which struck the big fellow on the shins when he tried desperately to scoop it from the lide. The rebound carried it out towards Elmer Benson and Elmer made a hurried throw to the plate in an effort to cut Loftus down at home but the peg was not quite true and It slipped past Dixon, Meyers getting to third base on the play. Then Groh stole second. Smith got the first out by making Young swing at three. Krueger swung at three more and ran to first when Dixon failed to peg the third strike to Smith. Dixon claim ed that he did not drop the ball but the umps ruled otherwise. From the stand it looked like the catch was a pickup instead of a dropped ball. So that left runners en first, second and third. Lothes grounded one to Murphy and the ihortstop pegged poorly to the plate to force Meyers. Dixon drop ped the low throw but hastily re covered. The decision was really a toss up but Umps Burnside ruled hi favor of the runner. Groh scor ed the sixth run on a fielder's choice that forced Lothes at sec ond for the second out Cotriss struck out with Krueger on third and Burst on first One Hit OST Smith. That scratch bingle of Groh's was ' the only semblance of a hit secured S Smith in the remaining four in ninga. He struck out five during tne time he was in the box, and al though a bit wild the Evas did not threaten to score again. Rock Island got away to the lead In the second inning when Gallegos "ted one over the left field fence Jflth McQuire on first base. In the third inning Benson and Smith cored on Miller's hit to center Beld. That was the extent of the "landers' scoring for the day, al though Cotriss was touched regu- ""j. score: Evansviiie. - AB, R. H. PO. A.

Gleason's pitchers couldn't still the mighty bat of Babe Ruth yesterday and the result was. a 6 to & defeat for the White Sox in their first engagemenf with the Yankees. The powerful Babe pumped two homers into the right wing of the grandstand, one with a man on, and in another attempt uncorked a triple that aided the scoring bus iness. Altogether Ruth drove in two runs in addition to crossing the plate himself three times. Babe was not alone in the pro duction of circuit smashes. Roger Peckinpaugh slammed one into the leftfield seats and Hap Felsch du plicated the feat, his being the longest of the four. In addition to these Ted Jourdan cut loose a drive in the eighth that would have gone into the rightfleld seats had it been about two feet higher. It was Just low enough to permit Ruth to spear it by leaping up the side of the concrete wall. Score: R. H. E. Chicago .....5 8 1 New York 6 14 1 Batteries Wilkinson, Kerr and Schalk; Mays and'Hanna.

BIG TVIRLER IS GIVEN RELEASE BY JACK TIGHE Dougherty's Failure to Deliver In Three Starts Reason for His Removal. Release of Jack Dougherty, big right-handed twirler, from the pay roll of the Islanders was announc ed this morning by Manager Jack Tighe. Dougherty was cut from the squad last night following his failure to hold the EvansvlUe team in check at Douglas park yesterday afternoon. Tighe stated that it was the third time Dougherty had been started in a contest and each time has been returned a loser, be ing yanked from the game after it was lost on two occasions. Dougherty was obtained from JWichiia by Tighe. He was expect ed to eutfa big figure in the Three Eye this season, and his failure to deliver is a source of disappoint ment to Jack. The big fellow ex hibits a lot of stuff in practice, but in the early part of the games the other team has solved his offerings. This brings the squad down to 14 players. Tighe was not prepar ed to announce whether or not j there would be, another release. Bloomers lommg. Evansviiie will remain for a final game tomorrow with the Islanders, after which Bloomington will move over from Moline for a 3-game se- iries that will extend through Sun day. The .islanders are anxious to avenge the two defeats suffered at the hands of the 1919 champions in the Initial games of the season at Bloomington.

When Bill Squires came to Amer ica to meet Jim Jeffries the Austra- 0 i lian looked to be 100 per cent nec tarine. "I nerer saw a better looking prospect," remarked Bob Edgren while reminiscing a short while ago. "He was big and fast he had a slashing wallop and he seemed to know the game. I took Joe Thomas down to look him over and they boxed a round or two. "He's a tough bird," Thomas said later. "Make no mistake about that" Squires impressed others much the same way. Yet when he met Tommy Burns the latter stepped up, rapped Squires on the ridge of the jawbone and the entertainment ws over in a few seconds. TOC CAST TELL. No, you can't tell. Bombadier Wells looked to be a wonder when he first reached United States soil. He was big and fast and extremely clever. He could also punch. He knocked Al Palzer for a goal with a hook that came near taking Pal zer's roof away. But Palzer weath ered the hurricane and knocked Wells out. There are too many elements that figure in the makeup of a heavyweight champion. Power, stamina, weight, speed, punching ability, defensive clever ness, ability to take it, fighting in stinct, reach these all must be weighed upon the scales. Carpentier has courage, speed, power, the fighting instinct and other important ingredients. But whether or not he has the weight, the power and the rugged- COMPANY l : ( i k.-.. 1 vjl m mm vSTVn CARTERS A Yaargnmaxketf II BY-ALLMAN Ton, I Tmw Wu.Uke.TH3 1 .rnxtrrN uovuiMimteK'm I OH, I nC IMAJ Ln lie's A ft I GNfc.
