Oct. 6.--Out; of a star angled- field, the American - league if urled" another flag of victory this ternoon at' Comiskey field. In one the best played and hardest fought ntests the fall classic of America's Ltiorial sport has ever s"een Chicago's ampion White Sox edg^d out a vic- ry over the New York pianta. 2 to 1. It -will take -three more victories to nd New York slithering into another feat in a world's championship ser- 3 and give Chicago its second' title ab in the American league. But iicago is betting tonight the Sox can rn the trick. Today's game was more than a sur- val of the test club. It brought out e extreme of worlds series fielding. dragged from the ancient arm. of im Sallee of the Giants and from e new found laurels of Eddie Cicotte, ' the White Sox, some wonderful tching. Working hard and cautiously from e first ball pitched up to the time hn Collins grabbed in Robertson's fly r the final out, Cicote hurled a fin- icd contest. Pitted against him was e southpaw marvel of. many a sea- n, pitching one of the red letter mes of his career. * Brilliant Fielding. Behind the two master workmen, the ·Idmg sparkled and scintillated. It 3^ a. break in the luck to turn Citte's cards to victory. A step in the me dnoction--and the chance offered ,clf--and the men of John McGraw uld have left the field victorious, bujkd, it w.! to Clarence Rowland-e busher of yesterday to whom the eak of the game fell and he holds e balance as he faces his second )rld's series combat. It was the heavy bat of Happy Isch that provided the winning run. lother outtielder, Joe Jackson, de- rves the credit for staving off pos)le defeat. To Benuy Kauff, -who snt the day through without a hit or go'od play.-went the sting: that fol- ved the' game's loss. It was his des- rate attempt to cut off a hit that suited in the first White Sox run. Ground each fluid was woven a fab- . of brilliance. »rom one side of tlie Id to the ofiici, stupendous fielding orts were thrown in. the face of the ormous crowd. Charley Herzog shed himself into glory on two oc- sions and Fred \ McMullin, bench inner, actually showed up the fam- s Heinie Zimmerman by his beau- ully executed plays, rhe recognized stars of baseball had tall chanc^, to shine along the lines their bcut wcik.

One of his smashes is a two base crack to deep center Id. ' Cicotte There With Stick. Sicotte himself opened the artillery e that resulted in the first White x run. Cicotte, one of the best hit- ig pitchers m baseball, stepped into e of Sallao's.shoots m. the third in- ig and laid it in,c2nterfield for'a igle. Jqhn Collins followed .with , second i3fe blow of the afternoon, tingle, and Cicotte legged it for third er first hesitating past second. The sitancy cost him ihis'lite on the ths, for an accurate peg by Dave bertson laid him low at the corner :k. John Collins, however, reached ·ond and scored when McMullin ped a doubla to centerfield. It was re that Kauff's play figured. The mer Federal league star came'dash: in for the ball, vlungrcd for it and sscd. The ball bounded past him. the time Bums ha_d recovered it lilns had grossed the plate and Mc- illm was on 'second. Eddie Collins led the inning with k pop fly to 'tcher. I'jT-n it was Felsch's turn. The.big iter fielder. cracked out one of'the gcst i:oihc run;, ever seen on Comey field when he met one'of Sab's curfea ajid sent it into the left Id bleachers,'far down toward cen- field.

Jf the ball had passed Jackson, Holke would have scored the tying-'run and Mc- 'Carty would have been In a position to score. McGfaw already had sent Fred ^'Anderson to -Warm up, planning- to send in .a pinch hitter for Sallee if McCarty reached first. Benny Kauff and Holke were shown up at lifst *ase by the clever Cicotte. He picked" off Holke in the second inning and did the same thing- to Kauff in thV eighth after Benny had reached there on Weaver's error. Kauff fanned once. A short fly to the outfield, a poj-up and a soft grounder on which Weaver erred, were his other efforts. Heinie Zimmerman failed to hit a ball out of the infield. Speculation turned tonight to the probable pitching selections for tomorrow. It was believed McGraw .would'send Poll Perritt to the firing line, alternating from his string: of left handers. - It was considered just as probable that Rowland would choose Red -Faber,( banking on a repetition of the' success of a right hander.

"CHI" CELEBS Windy City Fans- Paint Town Following Giant Defeat-Players Off to Bed. CHICAGO, Oct. 6.--If you were the biggest heroes In the country, how would you like to get chased to bed while about a million people were celebrating in your honor? Probably the White Sox didn't either, but they donned their nighties real early, nevertheless. , They did f it on orders from .their boss, Clarence Rowland, who herded them into the bosoms'of their families while the evening was still young and Chicago's baseball mad"* population was'just warming up to make a night of it. For Rowland, In common with Ben Fiankhn, beliuves that: "Early to bed and early to rise, "Makes ptppery fielding and sharp batting eyes." And the Giants, under like orders from John MoGraw, were spared the pain of trying to appear cheerful. But the home fans were thronging the loop streets, laughing and,shouting, while cabarets and other thirst emporiums were doing a "staggering" business. Everybody was telling everybody else, "I told you so," and making freak .bets of the mind variety. Little Money Bet. Probably less actual cash changed hands on- today's game than on any i other world series opener since they 1 were · inventt-d. The teams appear soj "vcnly materpd that the series 'will be decided practically by the "breaks" ' the g:imc and the 'fans'know it.

The Hstlessfo otball which can-led the season of a year ago, biingln«r defeat In the Kansas game, was driven from its trenches and the Cornhusker fighting spirit of old took its place on the firing line. Dr. Stewart, coach of the Corn- huskers, declined last night to exult over the victory. "I .hoped for a harder game," he said, "as we must now start on a string of six of tho toughest games In American football. "We needed more opposition, but Wosleyan, which has a green team, probably gave us tho best they had In stock.

Coach Kline of Wcsleyan offered no excuses. "Candidly. I figured I had a stronger team than last year," the Wesleyan coach said last night, "but the Corn- huskers are stronger, in my estimation, than any Nebraska team I have seen during tho past six seasons. Unless the Cornhuskera take a sudden slump from ovbj-tdnfldcnce, I can see no reason why" Nebraska should not win the Missouri,'j.yalley championship i and f make a serious bid to win from Notre Dame, Michigan and Syracuse. The Nebraska 'team, as it played against Wasleyan. has so much of the punch thai'there is no limit to Ita, possibilities." The Huskers started their big push early in the first quarter. Big Munn kicked off to AVe.sIc^iin and Halfback Carman returned the kick to tho Mothodists's 26-yurd line. Captain Grove hurled himself against the Nebraska line, gaining, a scant yard, after jvhich the Husker forwards broke through nnd spilled Carman for a six- yard IOSM. Wesleyan fumbled on I the next down; tho Cornhuskers recovered and then the Nebiaska juggernaut Sot under way. Schellenberg shot around the Methodists' left wing for ten yards and Dobson bucked through for seven more. Another piungo hy Dobson nnd the pigskin -was across tho Una] chnlkllne. The Huskers hud scored in less than four minutes of Play. The details of the other touchdowns credited to the Cornhuskers would be merely a rcpetion of the first --the Husker? had the punch and either rammed their way through the line or skirted the end's for'a successior or resistless rushes. Straight football was tlie main reliance of Dr. Stewart's i hhoit several hundred dollars. That , ( , [ feature is not so bad in itself, because f°J° TM I Hinkel is a very wealthy rnnn.

Pres. Dickerson Calls Meeting In Louisville, Ky., November 11. ^ , (Special to The Star ST. JOSEPH, Mo.. Oct. 6.--President Dickerson today announced that the meeting of Western league magnates will' be .held in Louisville on Sunday November 11. Two days before the meeting of the National association of minors. Dickerson says ihe meeting will last nearly 'a week and that chanprep in the circuit will be made. ,He 'suggests that Hutchinson, Joplin and Wichita will Join the Western association nex't season and that the Western will probably he composed ot St. Joseph, Kansas City, Kansas, Lincoln, Omtiha, DCS Mofnes, Sioux City, Peorla and Davenport Dickerson also stated that Holland retains St. Joseph franchise _and that this Is for sale. t ' I urn ..not agitating finy splits, says the president, except that I will consent to anything .that will help tho Western league. Dlckorson Intimates that Hanlon's team -will T c t u r n to Sioux City nnd that a new deal is on for the St. Josonh franchise. U p rlsi whites t h a t with two excoptlo.vt all 'h/» clubs In the league did better than break even on the seasor camp For the first time in history, an American army officer was to be seen lit the entrance of a baseball club's dugout on a-world's series field? The officer was.Drillmaster Smiley of the White So*x who wished them luck as they squared away for tho sporting fight, which has ever thrilled peace loving America. As the teams were called to the field, the band played "Over There." There was a new stillness,' too, as the crowd stood uncovered while the strains of The Star Spangled Banner swept up from tho field. The 32,000 mon nnd women who pricked Comiskey park v.-cro roprp«-cn- t o t i v c of, a nation fit war, snatching- a few minutes for pl.ij. ·"· There was one fatal omission. No- body In partlcuuar pitched out the first ball. The ball just got to Cieotte some way or other and a ceremony which the east 'has made much of in recent jears was thus lost. Benny Kauff has holes all cut in the top of his cap: Chicago fans suppose this Is to permit tys head to swell, but the holes were not needed today. Benny suffered almost total eclipse. Clark Griffith sat in the right field stands with the boys from Fort Sheridan. Grif gave up his box to Nick Altrock and Mrs. Altrock and one of Uncle Sam's men was sent back home to give Grif a seat It's hard to tell which roared the loudest--the crowds in the ball park or those that didn't get in. There were thousands of them lined up for blocks hanging to forlorn hopes and a neighbor's shoulder when the gates banged shut. The only thihgs bothering Comiskey were the ceaseless demands for tickets he couldn't grant--and his decorations. The "Old Roman" was inquiring whether everybody thought ho had enough flags out?. ' Eddie Cicotte insists there ain't no such* animal as the "shine ball." Benny Kauff and Heinie Zimmerman are offering a reward for someone to tell 'em what it is. Manager Rowland declared after the,game that Cicotte had pitched better games than that of today and that he expected him to do better the next time out. After Happy Flesch laced his homo run Into the bleachers, John Collins kissed him. Happy blushed. Cicptte showed his greatest control In tho sixth Inning. He pitched jusi; nine balls and every one over t!%~ plate. Kauff swung three times ;-~'t nilssotl all. Zimmerman swunR lvr'.c~* : nd tljcn popped to Gfmdil.
