Roy Harper Held In Atlanta On A Mischief Charge ATLANTA. Ga., Aug. 11 Outfielder Harper, of the Little Rook Southern As. norlatlon club, was arrested and held In J00 ball yesterday on a warrant charg ing "malicious mischief" after Manager Elherfeld, of the Little Rock club, had refused to pay for the canvas coverings on the bases that Harper Is alleged to have damaged yesterday with his spikes. iThe arrest came fifteen minutes be the first game of the double-header yesterday and Klberfcld announced In advance he would protest the game, Zoellers played right field until Harper could be taken to the city criminal court, make bond and return to the park. Bond was signed by Thomas E. IJefoor, an Atlantan. When a downpour of rain yesterday prevented the game from being played several of the Little Rock players dis ported themselves on the edge of the field in the boyhood game of "one-old cat" much to the amusement of a crowd that had braved the threatening skies. Harper, according to the local club, repeatedly ran with his spiked shoes across the canvas coverings pro tecting the bases and pitcher's box from the weather. , Hearing In the case was set for Sep tember 6 in the criminal division of city court here. POLISH ATHLETES TO PASS UP OLYMPIC ANTWERP, Aug. 11. Definite an nouncement that Poland will not partic ipate In the Olympic games has been made. The Belgian Olympic committee has received a telegram from Polish authorities, saying that because of the serious military situation the young men of the country are flocking to the front and that the Polish athletes re fuse to iuit the service of the nation in time of peril. The American rowing shells were taken yesterday to Marly, where the rowing events are to bo held, and It is expected they will be In the water for practice today. BROKE ARM JUNE 28. Chief Lewis has been nursing a brok en arm since June 28. upon which date he was struck on the right forearm by Clyde Barfoot, New Orleans right-handed pitcher. Jack was hit in the first Inning, but It was not thought that the arm was broken. However, an X-ray revealed the fact that the arm had been broken about an inch above the Lewis lmmediatelv went under the care of a physician, the broken arm was set and Jack started the long wait un til the bones could knit. Lewis re moved the splints several days ago, and has been throwing with his right arm steadily for the past 10 days. He says the wing feels as good as new, and that he is anticipating no further trou ble, with it. The return of Lewis to the lineup should strengthen the Chicks, for they have missed Jack quite a lot out there around the middle satchel. Blades did the best he could, but it is a fact that he is not cut out for an infielder. He would serve better in the outfield, for he has proved beyond question that he is not fitted for the first line of de fense. Blades fields a ground ball in a way that causes him to make a flock of errors. His boots have been respon sible for quite a, few losses of the Chicks. TRIBE ON EVEN TERMS. The Chicks went but Tuesday and nrnceerted tn dron both ends of a dou ble bill to the Mobile Bears, putting the Tribe hack at .u00, where tney nave been practically for two monthH. The Chicks were leading the proces sion for a long time, but when they went into a slump, they went down like the Titanic and have since been unable to regain an even keel. They have been wobbly and unsteady and abso lutely unahle to get started again with one of the drives that kept them out in front for a long time. The pitching staff the Tribe la pay ing at present looks good on paper, and there's no reason why such hurl ers as Dazzy Vance, Oscar Tuero and Rube Marshall should not be winning a majority of their games. The injury of Lewis at a critical time is one reason the Chicks have been unable to stage a comeback. Now with Jack due to get back in the game on Thursday, the Tribe should be able to get back, and show a little class. GOOD-BYE, PENNANT. As far as this season's pennant Is concerned, the Chicks are out of it un less a miracle happens, and the days of miracles are past. With such Btrong teams as Little Rock. Atlanta, Birmingham and New Orleans out in front, it Is almost physical Impossibility for the Tribe to overhaul any of the big four. It would require a slump on the part of all four teams, and none of them are at present showing any signs of cracking. They are all about Holding their own, while the second division teams are Blidlng up and down, win ning one and losing one, and remain ing about stationary -r There is no legitimate reason why the Tribe failed to cash in this sea son, for they had the material. Where the fault lies is difficult to say, but it's a cinch that somebody Is to blame. club owners will go In an effort to get the edge on an opponent. Dear Sir Please state In your col umns how averages are computed. Tunica, Miss. R- E- L- You failed to state whether you want ed batting, pitching or fielding aver ages, but here is how all averages are commited : Batting Divide total base hits by to tal times at bat. Fielding Divide number of, chances accepted by total chances. Standing of Teams Dilde total games won by games played. Stolen Bases Divide the number of games played into the number of bases stolen. Pitching Divide number of games won by total number of games pitched for won and lost. To determine earned runs per game divide total number of Innings pitched by nine to get number of "full games," then divide total of earned runs by number of games. Home Run Baiter is to return to the New York Yankees, but he will dis cover the massive frame of Babe Ruth in his warm place. Baker is to serve the Tanks in a util ity and pinch-hltting role. He has not been playing ball since the death of his wife some time ago. A fan drons a card to ask for a few facts concerning Baho Ruth. Here's a blrd's-eve view of Bamblnos- His full name Is George Herman Ruth. He was born at Baltimore. Md., on Feb. 7, 1894, making him 2 years of age. He bats and throws lert-nanaeci. He is six feet and one inch tall, and weighs ISO pounds. Ho broke into the big league with the Boston Red Sox In 1915. He is married. MEMPHIANS FOR YANKS. Memphis fans are pulling for the Nev York Yanks to win this setson's pen nant In the American league for two reasons. Muddy RucI and Sam VIck, two for mer Tribesmen and a pair of the most popular ball players ever wearing the war paint of the Tribe, are prominent members of the Yankee outfit, and If the New Yorkers cop the American league pennant, these boys will get a large and luscious slice of world s se rles kale. Southern league fans in the main are for Cleveland owing to tne fact That Tris Speaker, chief of the Cleveland Tribe. Is a Texas boy and a former Southern leaguer. As things are shaping up day after day. neither the. Indians or Yanks may cr.sh in with the flag, for the Chicago White Sox aro looming up in (he off- 'rig and unless they blow up In a short time, It's going to be one grand merry scramble for the A. L. pennant before the season closes. ALL RECORDS BROKEN. All previous attendance records for the Southern league have been broken this season, thus far. and it is under stood that the Sunland major has even outdrawn its elder brother, the Amer ican association, a class AA organi zation. The attendance has been good in practically every city except Nashville and Chattanooga, and had these two cities been up in the race they would have attracted the fans. Memphis has had a fine year, and when the final tabulation Is made It Is almost a certain fact that the Chicks will have attracted about as many fans as any city In the league. The Atlanta Crackers are playing to full parks every day. The attendance at Birmingham is also good. THE SHAME OF IT. When the officials of the Atlanta baseball club had Roy Harper, Little Rock outfielder, arretted Just before Tuesday's double-header in Atlanta, for "malicious mischief." It was one of the smallest tricks that has been re sorted to In a long time in an effort to give one club the edge on the other. Atlanta is trying hard to overcome Little Rock In the pennant hunt. Harper Is one of the leading hitters in the .Southern league, un Monday when It was raining. Harper and sev eral other players got out on the field and tried to act funny. During the course of tho fun-making, Harper stepped out on the tarpaulin that cov ered the diamond. The Atlanta club officials claimed lie ruined the cover ing with his spikes, and insisted that Manager Klberfeld buy another, which the Kid refused to do. Harper was not arrested then, hut the next day shortly after noon and Just before the double-header was scheduled to start, making It necessary for the Little Rockers to start the first game without the srvlce of one of their star sluggers. The Crackers won the first game. Harper got back in time to play in the second affair, which the Travelers won. There Is a sad lack of sportsmanship among some club owners In the South ern league. The above Incident In a fair sample of th limit to which some f-'o long as Joe Jackson. Eddie Col lins, Happy Felsch and others of their stripe remain In action, so long as Eddie Clcotte, Claude Williams. Dick Kerr and Urban Faber are. going good. the Pale Hose are not out of it. Not by a little brown jugful. Doak Had No-Hit Game If He Had Covered First PHILADELPHIA. Aug. 11. Doak. bv his failure to cover first base on Wil liams' smash between Hornsby and Fournler in the seventh Inning, rohhed himself of a no-hit game in yesterday's 5 to 1 St. Louis victory over Phila delphia.

The Wholesalers champion Sto.tton team are going to also cause some trouble for the other cluhs. H. Wlliams has been hurling good ball and dhnuld be exceptionally hard to beat. The Strattons have a bunch of good fielders and about nil they need ss tile continued batting punch.
