THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. SATURDAY, MAY 25, 1918. p i Iii. Selected as J Logical Pennant Winners in Major Leagues. Champion* of 1917 Just a* Strong as Ever and "Dope" Favors Them to Repeat--Boston Lacking In Experience Today. The \VMte Sox and Ginnts stand out today as logical pennant winners in the major leai;ue races. Some of their rivals hare been strengthened, while others have been weakened by player deals or the weight of war, but the 1917, champions are just as strong as ever, and the "dope" favors them to repeat. The world's champion WMte Sox have not lost a player whose absence would hnrt their chances. The team Is Intact, thoroughly seasoned, highly confident and efficient in erery respect. The pitching etafl, which did ·neb effective work last season, is on edge again this year,' and It appears that the Sox should set a pace that win lead their rivals to the -wire. In the National league the Giants are rtill supreme, although they-will find stnT,oppo«Jtlon in tte-West "Mc- Grair's team bas not' been -weakened^. though Henog and" Bobertaoo " are* - iwt^rfT»p Boes Yonng is more than ttBtng Bobertson's shoes, -while Doyle and Barnes hare added strength to the clob. If the QJants'.-canrhold'ihV players nor wearing uniforms they win lead the fieW in Dctobca-..:; - A study of the opposition ha the path of the 1917 champkaw reveals, the Bed Sox as the only clnh liable to gtre Chicago a desperate flght for the American league' pennant - .Boston fQled the ennity'ahoes of departed ·tan with ptajers- eqnallr -capable, and the team as a '·whole Is 'strong'aa Cbtcago. But Boston's;'players l«ck eivaJfuf* together; : i»bleh is-E' big point In lavor of_.the_JVWte Sox.; Detroit appears- to-.,he-next *rn line. Tile Scera lack pitching strength, but there if no denying the driving power and defeostre ability of the ctab as a .whole. Cawetand and New Tori oboold fight hud for:the;remaining flrst-dtriskon berth.

THE FINAL FLIGHT OF THE DOLLAR Tiie dollar that you or your neighbor starts toward tlie mail order Iiousc is given wings as it leaves you and through the service of the United States mails flies to the mail order house to which you may have directed its course. There it reaches a man who knows nothing but contentment. He is receiving his ill-gotten gains £rom those who have fallen victim to his alluring bait. Plow is it with you, patron of the mail order house? Are you contented with what this glutton for wealth has seen fit to forward yon after you have given him your money? Surely not. If you had halted to think of the dollars that you were sending away from your home town stores to this mighty center of wealth, you surely would have considered well and more wisely. MORAL:--The dollar's flight eventually brings a community's plight. A Great Combined Movement by Great People Will Secure a Phenomenal Boost for Yourself and THESE MERCHANTS.
