He haa won so consistently and made famous batters like Ty Cobb, Duffy Lewis and Frank Baker whiff so often that he Is now accepted as a sure starter In one of the combats of the world's series be tween the Sox and the Reds. 'Kerr is a second string pitcher it the most a good finisher but a poor start ed, said an Eastern fan several weeks ago.' "He is too small to cope with the heavy batsmen of the American league." Three months of American league his tory have been reeled off, replete with startling episodes. Notice the switch in opinion concerning this despised lllli puln hur'er. Easterners Are Convinced. , "Kerr hadn't been figured In the world's series calculations." said an KaM.errr writer yesterday, "and hi3 work had been eclipsed bv the prodigious feat, of Clcotte and Williams, but the record of this tiny pitcher certainly en titles him to recognition." It will be recalled that Kid Gleason himself was slow to admit Kerr to the miect circle of regular pitchers. . The Kid,, too, figured little Dick was too much of a midget to make good as a regular. He expected to keep him as a finisher of games. Gleason has been atreeablv surnrised Ih Kerr. When given a chance to start games this pirrmy hus surprised ';l friends snd confounded his critic?. He ha made ood wi'h a vengeance. , Kerr Helps Win Pennant.

Lieut Locklear was cheered to the echo for his daredevil felts at' the fairgrounds, when he climbed all over hi airplanes,-going from one ship to the other with the agility of a eat. Ho deserved alt of the applause and money he received. But there woro aviators during the world war who went thousands of feet In the air and faced deadly machine guna, who battled high In the oioudt with Hun foes. Locklear flirted with death, but those airmen want farther than that. They had no applauding thousands. They were receiving no klnq'i ransom. Give Locklear credit. But don't over look the fact that some of Uncle Sam's flyers did some stunts that would make Locklear's look as safe as sitting at homo in a rocking chair. Also, don't overlook the fact that standing still behind a gun has Its dis agreeable features. TRIED TO SAVE LOOKS. Pal Moore. Memphis bantam, tells one about Phil Harrlon. who lumped Into the spotlight of blffdom when he stopped Jack Dillon here during the centenary celebration. - Harrison has a map that Is battle scarred from one side to the other, with both ears of the tin variety, with his nope flat and boneless and with vari ous and sundry cuts and marks aJI over it. Phil got the most of his marks from Packey McFarland when he was Packey's snarring partner. A few weeks after meeting Dillon herej Harrison met an opponent In an Eastern city. . Phlli was literally chopped to ribbons and In the third round he came to his corner, with blood spurting from his-nose and with both his eyes, almost closed. Tommy Walsh was in his corner. ' '. "Take off those gloves, Tom," fairly Shrieked Phtl. "I'm through. I can make more money buying junk. Take 'em off. I'll not let my looks I be spoiled." i And this marked the end of Phil as a boxer.

EXPECT BIO 1920 YEAR. , The season of 1920 Is expected to he even a greater baseball year than the one which jut closed, which was marked bv every club In Dixie making money. The minors In general were a prosperous lot. due to the return of baseball to even a greater measure of popularity than before the war, Fans who were denied their baseball after Juno of last year have come back stronger than ever before for baseball. The result Is that all cities In the Bouthern enjoyed a fine financial sea son. The Dixie club owners are awake to the times and are of the opinion that 1920 Is going to be a greater baseball year than has ever been experienced by the Southern. Other- leagues are ex tending the'r player and salary limit and the Southern Is very wisely figuring on the pame thing. Instead of a half-and-half rookie -rule, the mars'n will rest on the side of the plavera who have had previous professional experience. This will mean that all clubs will be strengthened, the class of hall that the Southern will put on exhibition will be better, than In 1919 and in every way will assist the Hunland major to -ret back to- the high plane it enjoyed many seasons ago.

GIANTS LOS REDS 121 Gene Belmont To Battle Red Herring Local Lightweight and Champion of American Expedition ary Forces to Go Up Against Kid Elberfeld's Boxer In Paducah October 2 BY BOB PIGTJE. KTERMINKD TO answer the many gi.aJlenge' hurled at him I- Red Herring, Kid liiberfeld's lightweight, Oene Delmont, Memphis lightie and champion light weight nf the ''"ricar ex peditionary forces, baa started trclnina lor tt n,jvl- ing with Herring in Paducah, Ky., on Thursday night. Oct. 2. The bout will be 15 rounds to a decision, and will be staged in the Kentucky theater. When Gene and Red get together. It will mark the second time that thesa two top-notch lightweights have min gled in the padded arena. Gene met Red about five years ago at Al Fre mont's boxing club in Nashville In an eight-round mill. Delmont had all the best of it In this bout and gave Her ring a neat trimming throughout the serslon. This hii always stuck In Her ring's craw, and he has been seeking a return go with Gene for the expressed purpose of wiping out the stain of de feat that Delmont placed on his record that night in the Volunteer city. Gene and Red were matched for a short time ago in Little Rock at Camp Pike, but L'ncle Sam stepped In and barred all boxing bouts at Pike, making it necessary to call off the proposed mill. Both Boys In Training. Both Delmont and Herring are now In training for the approaehing battle and when (hey step through the ropes on the night of Oct. 2 they are expecting to be In the finest possible fettle. Del mont realizes that he is not going to have the setup that marked his first meeting with Rebel Red, and Is get ting himself in the bent posalhle condi tion for what will undoubtedly be one of his toughest fights. Herring has Im proved many per cent since Delmont met him In Nashville, and It will be a different opponent that Gene will face In the Kentucky city. Herring is under the managerial wing of Kid Klberteld, manager of the Little Rock baseball club of the Southern league, who has beeii grooming him for hi- nout with Delmont. Red Is at present In Paducah, which Is his home town, and is working every day conditioning himself for his coming meeting with Gene. Delmont has it on Herring when It comei to experience, for the Mernphlan has been battling In the squared arena for many years, whereas Red Is a com parative youngster. Red broke into the boxing game about five years ago, dur ing which time he has met several good hoys, picking Up valuable experience. Red is the last word In aggressiveness, possessing an Inhorent love of battle that makes him a hard customer for anybodv to handle. He is red-headed, as might be guessed by his nickname, and Is as Irish as a shamrock, so he mav be counted on to give the local boy all he is looking for when It cornea to wielding the gloves.

It was agreed that If thut rule were In force In the present dny the outfielders would have to bit- mounted on motorcycles, and Muddy Ruel said that the play lug Held would have to be as big as the parade grounds at old Camp Pike, where he was lit the officers' training camp.

Claudo Wll'lams Is IhY'blg ouestlr In the comlnir classic hun.,, i White Sox and Reds This White Sox southpaw has been n enigma nil season In the American eague. Against most of the teams he looked like u world beater. The rec ords show Hint he was one of the best winning huiiers In the circuit. He rrsda an admlrab'e running mate for Kddie Clcotte. Together tliey pitched the teams to a pennant. But, on the other glove. Williams nioved pie for the Cleveland Indians, rhey beat him three or four times. The Indiana pummeled everything Williams threw toward the plate. They scored four runs off him in the first Inning and drove him to the cool and soothing showers. A couple of time before In the campaign they treated him the same way. And among his defeats are a few other complete routs contributed by one or two of the other club. .Vow, the point Is this: Will Williams be effective against the Reis as he was saalnst the majority of the teams In the American lesaue? Or will they rtnd mm pier ins success may have a direct bearing on the outcome of the ahow. Gtj Coxjle THU VIA IS TI1K OIXTMHXT. lOut at C. B. C.
