WHITE WeU -Known Authority on Baseball Record, Compiler of Statuses in the Official Guide Book ISM. 1 Httwr.1 Q. Three an on bases and the infielder throws the ball to the catcher, is standing on home plate. He seems to forget that he is standing on the base and swings around to tag the runner, and as he does so the ball is knocked out of his hand. Is it an out? A. As described it appears to be. The ball was held lone enoueh for a Q. Team has three men on bases and two out In returning the ball to the pitcher from the catcher the pitcher dropped it. Meanwhile a runner had stales home. The umpire made him go back, saying it was a dead ball. Why as it dead? A. Can't think of any reason. Looks as if the umpire made a mistake. Q. Suppose there is a batter on first and the catcher misses the third strike and the ball rolls back so far that be couldn't make a play on any nmner, is the batter still out? A. He is. It does not make any difference how far the ball rolls away hem the catcher. Q. Team in our district ha a coacher who sits in the territory between aad home and watches the catcher to get the signals and then tells the what is coming up. What is the penalty? A. If he is not the regular coacher put him back on the bench, and if he vul not leave the game under that order, forfeit it 0. Runner on first and the batter bunts the ball. The catcher plays the I tall to first and then the first baseman plays it to second, but no one is touched. How many are out? A. One, providing the runner on first hugged the base. Don't argue over baseball decisions or records. Write Charley White, care of our Sporting Editor, enclosing stamped return envelope. Hell tell you what's rignt.

WEBB JR. Notwithstanding all the denials that have come out from New York and Ohicasro. there are those with the Cleve land ball club who firmly believe that ; mere is something more than just smoke in the rumors that Charley Comlskey is figuring on some deal whereby he can land "Babe" Ruth, and that the Yankees echo with only a faint "no" and with no accompanying stamp ing of the foot. Cols Ruppert and Huston have re-j ceived fullest value for the Investment they made In Ruth, and are now paying mill ix oaiai J lunL . u iiul LvaiiiivHL im his drawing power as a player who is not delivering very strongly and who has lost much of his populaxity with New York fandom. The followers of baseball in Gotham are a "thumbs down" crowd when some great player begins to slip, and this Is fully realized by the club owners, who understand fully how much of a show business the) National game Is In the big town. "Babe." under "Kid" Gleason, might well become a big asset for the White Sox. Gleason would handle Ruth In the same fashion that Ruth likes to handle managers and club owners and there would be no foolishness. What might stand In the way is the big salary Ruth is said to receive, but even this has been cut In two by baseball court reports, and that $750 a game does not go any more. Chicago, however, is fast getting back on Its feet. Getting Ruth would be a ten-strike for "Commy," the greatest advertiser In baseball. But "Commy" does not let players get away from him and the Yankees want players rather than the money. - -lnBBaTCidiDa BRINES BATHING sling Men's All Wool Suits SPECIAL PRICE HOLLIS SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM, BRA INTREE GRAMMAR SCHOOL CHAMPIONS Back Row, Left to Right Principal Ward Raymond; Herbert Boardman, ss; Leroy Bestick, 8b; Harry Vinton, lb; Hugh Johnson, p; Harison Walker, rf; E.

Hollis, batboy, with trophy now held by the Hollis School team. Indians Looked Good In their game with the Bostons yesterday -the Indians looked like anything except a club that would be content to trail in the second division very long. In negotiating their sixth win of the year aganst the Sox, Speaker's team showed sgns of the old Are and the all-around work, behind good pitching by Morton, suggested old times. Speaker, until a few weeks ago. was very certain that his club would be able to rise to the heights of a contender again but with less than half of the race still to be run, the Texan has lost much of his optimism. The season surely most have shown Speaker that the Indians must be rebuilt. Stars without speed, even If they can hit, do not make a ball club. Also it was shown, and many times, by the fast-fielding Red Sox that fielding alone without speed and hitting will not", put a club anywhere. It Is all-around strength that counts, and the speed that enables a ball club to make the breaks come its way In the close plays. Under the late Pres James Dunn spending money was part of the Indians' policy, but Speaker did not spend much, preferring to develop the team as it was lined up. In seven seasons the Indians, who have 'won one championship and have been up In other races, probablv have spent less than the majority of the American League toarn. But the time has now come whn Speaker needs new talent that can Ret over the ground. Therefore, another season is likely to see several changes BRAINTREE, July 12 This Is the Hollis School baseball team, winners of the Grammar School League series this season and possessors for this year, at least, of the silver cup offered as a permanent trophy to the team that wins it three consecutive years. The little team did not win the championship this year without a genuine contest, as there .was a tie with the Noah Torrey .School at the end of the regular season and a playoff was necessary. The Hollis School was prominent In baseball before the Grammar School League was formed, for in those days the Hollis School had an interclass league of its own. During the past season the Hollis team won six games and lost one in the league series. The team also defeated the Thayer Academy Prep team on May 26 by a score of 8 to 2. The cup was won In 1916 and 1916 by the Pennlman School, in 1917 by the Jonas Perkins School, in 1918, 1921 and 1922 by the Hollis 8chool and in 1919 and 1920 by the Noah Torrey School. Ward Raymond, the principal, to whom in a very great measure Is due the success of the little team, says he has splendid material in the lower grades for another championship team next year. in the Indians' lineup, and some pretty good hitters either traded or sold. Cards Hanging On While the New York Giants are playing winning ball, they have recently been matched at every angle by the St Louis Cardinals, who have picked up their speed again and are running along smoothly in a position where they have to do little worrying. The Cards have kept pace with the Giants In the matter of winning ball games, but they have been defeated a few more times. The Giants have played six less games than the Cardinals have played and with each team winning 48 matches, the Westerners are running second because they have dropped 32 games while the Giants have lost 26. In a few days the clubs will come together and then the Cards will have their chance. It will take some great baseball for the Rickey team to make a killing against the New Yorkers, who have Just taken a shot at the winning streak of the Cubs, but the Cardinals are even more on their toes Just now than the St Louis Americans are, and the opportunity they have at hand is one of a season. Although Brooklyn, Chicago and the Rods all have made spUrts, the Cardinals' game has been the steadiest throughout the season except that ot the Giants. The St Louts staff looks Just as strong as that of the Giants and the records show equal hitting strength and considerably more speed and ability to win close games. The Giants always have had a stretch of bad ball playing in late July and early August, and if this comes again this season, McGraw will find the Car dinals In a frame of mind to make more than casual trouble. NOTES OF THE OLD GAME Harrv Harper, late of the Sox and Yankees, will pitch for the new inde-; pendent club at Hackensack, N Y. His home is in tnat city. Larrv Gardner was unkind enough to start things towards yesterday's Cleveland victory over the Red Sox. Ty Cobb made four hits in Philadelphia yesterday, while Slsler did not make any in New York. It was George's 13th hitless day of the year. Joe Bush has been far and away the Yankees' important pitcher of the season. One hears no more talk about how Joe is going to come back. He is already back. The two leading clubs in each league have won 48 games to date. Looks as If the White Sox have the inside track for the services of Roy i Elsh of Sioux City. The Pirates have I been notified by Judge Landis of this fact. Out in Pittsburg they are still talking about having been robbed of the services of Sisler years ago. Twice this year has pitcher Rommel of the Mackmcn been given credit for winning a doutleheader. Michigan University. He won a place on the mythical All-American football team last year.

Here they come, tossing new sandbags into the defensive sectors 1 James M. Barnes, open golf champion, U. S. 2. William Tilden, turf tsnnis champion of the U. S 3 Jesse Guilford, amateur golf champion, U. S. 4. Jack Dempsey, heavyweighf boxing champion. 6. Benny Leonard, lightweight boxing champion. This is only a partial list. From the line-up named Dempsey and Leonard, the two boxers, have much the better chance to keep th chaplet of laurel buds fixed upon their clammy brows. Just back of them in the way of chance comes Tilden, who faces a notable field at Oermantown in a few weeks. But the two most rasping assignments of the lot belong to Barnes and Guilford, inasmuch as a golf crown always hangs upon a thread as thin as a spider weave. Few golf ers repeat Ten years have slogged along since any one attained an open title twice in succession, for there are always too many ranking stars to leave any single entry anything but an outside chance. The Main Challenger Time cornea singing its ancient song "Only so long, only so long. I am the kid that runs the show, I am the marker on the slate. And when I whistle it's time to go. W hen I beckon it's time to blow. Whether it's soon or late." A Few Odds The odds against Barnes and Guilford will be at least 7 to 1. Tilden should be close to an even-money choice against the field, for Bill Johnston, and possibly Vincent Richards, are the only two who loo, to have anything approaching robust chances against the champion, at bis best. Benny Leonard will be a slight favorite against Tendler, as ths ohampion nearly always is until his crown is suddenly hammered over the right or left ear. Dempsey should be at least a l-to-2 shot, tackling Wills or any ons else. Wills alone has anything approaching a chance to win. and tbla chance isn't 50-60, by several fathoms. With the Usual Raid Walter Ruether to George H. Ruth, "I'd Uke to pitch to you. forsooth." "Alt right, I'll double that forsoother," Said Qeorge H. Ruth to Walter Ruether. (Copyright. 1911. New York Tribune. Ino.) ' By ALBERT J. WOODLOCK The Norwood High School baneball team in the past seauon won 11 and lost eight games. It faced the strongest teems in the State, which accounts for the larger number of upsets than in previous years. When the season opened Coach Bennett Murray, an old Boston Latin and Boston College athlete, had only two veterans of the '21 nine. He worked like a Trojan with the new material, and managed to round together a nine that won more than half flu games It was the first year that Mr Murray has been a 6mq etf Whs Norwood High School athletic teams, and the record of the football, basket ball and baseball teams was satisfactory. The eleven won 10 games and lost none. The basket-ball team won 10 games and dropped seven. Th enine was captained by Xrthur Kckholm, the pitcher, one of the foremost twirlers in that section of the Slate. He has lots of smoke on the ball, with a good change of pace. His hitting is also of a high-grade order. "Bud" Dower, the other veteran, played second base and his work during the past season was the best of his school career. He la a wonderful tn-ftclder, hatt attne throwing arm and his hittingyfs of top-notoh variety. After the early, gamea Utiaoh- Murray, was forced to shift Dower from second Dase to eaten, ana ne am wcu, i:uu-sidering that the position was new to him. John Lavton, at first base, gave an excellent all-around account of hlmsi-lf. He was one of the leading hitters, having an average of .300 for the 19 games. Eddie Readel, a substitute outfielder one year ago, developed into a first-class outfielder. He led the team in hitting, with an average of .501, and aa a result was recently presented the cup given by John Murray, a Norwood bum-ness man. He intends to enter Brown University. , AUk Jummey, ;aw4 ifcorJriWa A tip-top style. John Kiley was at third base and received plenty of praise from his team mates and followers of the team. "Tony" Karshis, thti substitute pitcher, has lots of speed and a good curve ball. The outfield positions were held by Fred Viets, a timely hitter and a ,?ood fielder; John Hayes, who made many spectacular catches, and Dave Foren, the football and basket-ball star. "Tenna" McDonough was another Norwood High boy who tried his hand in the pitching department and he. did fairly good work.
