He faced Buck)' Walters, the National League's champion, who has won his lirst two starts. In the other two National League games Hugh Mnlcahy pitched the Phillies to a G-2 victory over the Pirates ami the Cubs struggled from behind to beat the Bees, 8-7, in' 10 innings.

At the same lime, they know there isn't any use In betting on him. What doth it profit a jnnu lo bet %l if lie can only gain 10 cents? And the 10 cenl.s only after waiting in a line for half an hour. The 10 cents won't pny for the wear ar.d tear on n fellow's shoes or his arches or his temper. So, the thousands here for the derby face (he dismal prospect of betting ngnhv>l n sine Ihlnij. They know Biminy is going to win, but, lo gel any thrill at nil, or to enjoy any prospect o( making a little mocey, they must wngcr on a horso or horses Ilicy know in their hearts cnn't give the Bradley Bullet more thtm a gentle workout. To tell Ihe truth, no one Is going lo gel rich betting on (he plitce or show horses In the derby. There will be so much money crammed through the windows on Bimelceh that the second and third nags won't pay off more than n dime or Uvn. The dcvby Irlal showed Ihnl. Oallnllliillon, Ihe second horse, was SG to 1 on the tote board when Ihe field went to the post, but he paid only $4 for coming in'second. And Sirocco, who came in third, was ID to 1 on the board, but a ticket on him was worth only $2.20. It's a pretty pickle. A Miss- Amcricn pickle. Today, tomorrow, and Friday nil of us must sil around mid wait, for Saturday nnd the chance to either bet on a horse whose price will be so short thnt the cashiers will linvc to pny off in mills', cigar coupons, or bottle caps, or stagger insanely to a window nud. against better judgment, phmk out money on a certain loser. hi the first. Bildilli held the Yanks the rest of Ihe way, including the' feal of retiring the lasl 19 men lo fnce him in order. Red Ruffing was the loser.
