;aera;iST Twtti to Defeat by We. Inn nvter-Stowut Throws -' Second Game. i- I' By Bruce Copeland. f Irrort of omission and commis t j, chiefly,, the . latter, behind i Stow McQuillan In the first gam ynrtardsy wth Mollnt at Browning i'tsM. together with amateurish bat ; OK, got under tba big "ace's" skin tfitr the first inning and thereafter !K auote George himself, he didn't ' sttcb, but merely threw to the bat- !. : 11 is regrettable that McQuillan ' htd to occupy the bix with such a jjssrganUed outfit which included kumelt and three other pitchers, a easier fielder with one hand still tsaad from a spike wound, a slow- sawing outfielder at short, against Jack a Well-organized 'club as the mowmen. f WaAfillUn TllamafeJ H Is a fact that McQuillan' did ot try to pitch after the first in amg. and so the Molinei batsmen ' connected freely in the pinches, sided and abetted by loose fielding, winning and. Incidentally, banging , sp McQuillan's first defeat In fire ' gsmes by a score of 8 to 2. Mc Quillan was wise nt to exert him- . Hit. A man of his years must con serve and not disipate his strength. Sid Stewart started the second '4ane wilder than ever before. He Yfaised the first three batters. Then fire runners scored as the team bat led around. Returning with Runser again at the top of the list, Stewart tasted mm ana strasoaugn ana Emory for the second time in the toning. Before the side had been ed. four more runs bad counted. ng it nine for the inning. Weiss Checks Rush. ' "Weegee" Weiss, who had been playing a fine game in left field, vent into the box in the second in ning and held the Plows to five scattered hits and a single run; but the Moline lead was too high for the crippled Islanders Ho surmount sad the game went to Mack & Com pany, 10-1. The Islanders displayed a ludic rous dearth of good players. How aver, despite Manager Glockson's inability to secure first class talent, misfortune after misfortune, ter minating Saturday against Cedar Rapids when Frank Murphy was ait in the head by a pitched ball, has well nigh disorganized the team into the sandlot class. This un fortunate circumstances was a sore gipot to the 2,600 fans of both cities who watcbed the two exhibitions. A Disorganised lot. In all Justice to the Islanders, ey played as well as tney couia; at you cannot get nrst class base- Mil out of a team that plays four pitchers in the game, and one that constantlT has to swltcrn one lava oftA BDAtha fmm hia rop. ular position. There are only a few minor leaguers who are quali fied to act as utility men and the Islanders have none. Frank Murphy suffered so from his "beaning" Saturdday that dlzzi aess overtook him as soon as the club reached Browning field and rendered him hors de combat in the first game. This necessitated Nor man Glockson playing in center field with his band still in ban dages from being spiked. Cornie Mclnerney did as well as he could it short, but was away out of his class.. Even Qus Purpura seemed lined to the ground at third a position where he had previously worked to good account Kothrag to Gain, ' The fact that the Plows ran themselves leg-weary from crossing m plate cannot be held as a en tsrion of merit between the two dubs. The Islanders demonstrated prevously that they were fully as formidable as Moline. Yesterday's unfortunate reverses may be dis counted at will. The fact that Mo lias won both games by spacious arglns was a stroke of luck for intra, not nine else. Good playing behind McQuillan would have held the Plows to a cou ple of runs. Good batting would have scored about six or seven tor Beck Island. McQuillan refused to JW his souper bare to such med iocrity, for he is too wise a head to undertake to play the whole game. Stewart alone was to blame for the econd travesty. Sid has bad suffi cient time to tame his wildness. Testerday just about proved that cannot be done. Bat remember, yon Islander tans, we'll have a Jjam here next year that'll go through the league like mice "WWgh a bolshevik's whiskers.

When ban of toe Boston and New York Americas toagwa baseball dabs re cently started an anti-Mays cam paign, they started something that will meet with the endorsement or practically every American league hsssba 11 player. Ever since Mays has been fa the American league he has had the reputation of being a Dean ball Ditcher. In other words. It was alleged he would Jet drive with a pitched hall that was caicaiaiea w make the batsman dodge. Against some pitchers who are noted for their control, the bats men will stand close to the plate and even take a step or two for ward in an effort to hit the ball before the curve breaks. Mays is one of a group of pitchers who al ways has worked to prevent any such familiarity with his offerings. He has worked on the theory that if now and then he threw a swift ball close to the batter, the bats man would be cautious as to how close to the plate he stood and the -farther the batter stood from the l plate, the easier it would be for 'a' pitcher to retire him by throwing; balls on .the outside. Thais wny several pitchers have resorted to the "bean ball." Walter Johnson once was asked why he did not use the "beaaer" occasionally. His reply was: "If I hit a batter on the head, I might kill him." Carl Mays entered the league in 1915. He hit five batsmen that year. The following season he hit nine. He led the league pitchers in that respect , in 1917 by hitting 14. He was second in 1918 when he hit 11 and second in 1919 when he struck 10. This year be struck six batsmen Jamieson, Johnson and Chapman of the Indians, Pitch er Sam Jones of the Red Sox, Har old Shanks of Washington and Catcher Severein of St. Louis. Cleveland thus provided three, or half his victims.

THE WOMAN When a mnrder Is committed, anv she Is more than ott a lady With a reputation shady- N either prudish or old-maidy Is the woman in the case.

She's the "woman in the case." When a millionaire goes bankrupt and his margins cannot face, The referee says, "Surely, there's a woman in the case. From a standpoint comprehensive, She's a woman who's expensive." So he starts a strong offensive At the woman in the case.

JACK REGARDS' FOE FOa COUT Champion Trains Hard far laker , Day Classic Without Trie W Over-CenfMence, Benton Harbor, Mich, Aug. 23. Whatever the ambitions of Billy Miske, St Paul challenger for the world's heavyweight champion plonship. Jack Dempaey doesnt propose to regard lightly the plana which his opponent hero of Labor day afternoon haa laid to capture the title. ' It is a fact well known that Miske is an able battler and it is in his idleness for the past year that Dempsey sees real reason to fear for the safety of pugilism's great est prize. ' Five months of careful training, during which time he haa engaged in one bout, represents the amount of preparation which Miske had gone through before ar riving In Chicago this week to con tinue his work. Sot Over-Confident. That Dempsey wilt not suffer from over-confidence is certain. He has demonstrated that much by the eagerness with which he has followed the instructions of Man ager Jack Kearns in his training. With the able Ben Smith assisting, Jack has Just completed about the most strenuous first week's train-! ing a champion ever engaged in in preparing to defend his title. Five days of road work haa sharpened the champion's ' wind . and strengthened his legs to such a degree that be says he feels Bt right now to jump into the ring. : 1 11 need some boxing to improve my speed and judgment - of dis tance," said Dempsey today, "bat I do not anticipate any trouble get-1 ting down to the form I was in against Willard. I have only a few extra pounds to remove now. At Toledo I was in an out of form during that long siege of training: several times. I have kept " tn shape by doing light work for aev-l oral months boxing exhibitions and the like and the past week's work here has done me a lot of good." . Admirers at Camp. j Hundreds of" week-end visitors , flocked to the Dempsey camp Sun-1 day. Bill Tate is again being star-! red in the role of chief chopping! block with Panama Joe dans aa first assistant. A third boxer of class, Harry Greb, of Pittsburgh, will arrive Wednesday to help the two negro fighters provide the fun and amusement which Dempsey insists upon in preparing for, a fight ' Manager Kearns - regards . the Tate-Gans-Greb combination an ideal one in giving Dempsey the glove work that he will need to prepare properly for Miske. "Greb Is fast a clever boxer and although light, he should give Jack - the chance to develop speed. Oans is a fast man, too, and although small, should provide the right kind of opposition. Tate ia the ' biggest man of the three and an x cellent defensive fighter. ' Those piston-like arms of his make him hard to hit. He's big enough, too, to take a considerable amount of punishment and they all must stand a little battering when they get in there with the champion." Miske Expected Today. Fans were waiting the arrival of Miske today. The challenger is scheduled to his training at Kid Howard's Arcade gymnasium in Chicago until ten days before the fight, but was expected to drop In to town Just to look things over with his manager, Jack Reddy, ana Jimmy Delaney, St Paul heavy weight, who will assist him in the capacity of trainer and sparring partner.
