ID B[ ON AH Together Boys Eight Regulars Hitting .300; Pitching Set But Jurges Loss Felt By CHARLES GRIMM Miniger Chicago Cub? NEW YORK, July 28.—As I «•>' li, (he Giants, Cardinals and Pirates all sre going to bo cough until the last shot is fired, bin obviously the New York club is one the Cuts have to beat I believe tiio Chicago team's- chances of winning the National League pennant are ns erad at thcee of the current wotlil eham- pioris. The tchediili' favors the Giants for they finish at home—an advantage always In a dose rare. But, on the 1 otliH- haml. the Cubs have a long stay nt Wriglej Field during the hot dog days ot August. That Is when well havi to rip our real diivlnc- The (limitr sre apt to find th; gahig particularly rough on the road at that time, and if we can keep within hailing distnnce during the present road trip, ! feol that we will lake the lead before Labor Day. Once we get out In front, the Giants will find It exceedinsly difficult to head us olf. I anticipate si hind battle right up to the wire. Finn- clubs must be considered, 'but the dope points to the Cubs and Giants lighting it out, with the one gelling the bfr,l breaks most likely to cop. * « • Until the other day, the Cubs' problem was getting Injured players tack Inlo the regular lineup. Now that Charley Klein and myself again are available, we foon should be milking I In 1 Glanls panl. Chicago still Is handlcapi>ed ' at that, without Shortstop Bill Jurgess, who may te out for sometime as the result of an operation for appendicitis. While the Cubs are fortunate In liavluv a substitute of lire caliber of Woody English, Jiirges' absence hurts a lot. Our pitching. I believe, li set for the remainder of the campaign. Ouy Bush, Wetneke, Bill Lee, and big Jim Weaver constitute our first line staff. All save Bush arc In good cpndltlon, strong and ready to go. Bush hasn't been feeling well, following an car infection, but it Is nothing serious, and the Mississippi Mudcat will be his same old fast nnil screw ball self within a few days. Pat Malone, Root and Tinning make up our first line pitching reserves, and they, too. tire in tiptop shape. ; • • • Our position at this stage of the scramble is n favorable eone. Chicago puts a fine defensive machine on the field daily, with eight regulars hitting more than .300. including drivers like Klein. Uabby Hartnelt, Ilazen Cuyler. and Babe Herman. Cuyler, who failed to smack the tphere with men on bases, during the prc-fent invasion of the east should shake his slump any day. Although his mark for tht; Juinil fell to .158, his seasonal average still hit .,328. I'm not. warrled nbout Kiki. He's too natural a hitter to remali in a rut. The' Cubs are pulling together and none of our boys concede the Giants, or any other" club, anything. .oral Golfing Ace Will Attempt lo Qualify for Na- Ihe Trl-Scate rolf tournament here "1 iffo wetfc »fo,- *ur itMmpt iol qualify for the nationtl »m»t«ur 1 tournament sponwred by the United States Golf Association.

The local sharpshooter has the choice of shooting his 3$ hole qualifying round either at Dallas, or St. Louis, but will play al the latter city. : . Not more than ihrec players expected to be accepted from the St. Louis district. The number de- mis upon the size of the qualifying field, and the small percentage of players accepted from each district makes It extremely difficult If. qualify, but Dowell has consistently proved himself the best golfer In tills sectinn and if he is on his t'a:ne when he shoots the qualifying round, August 21. he Is conceded 11 good chance to be iiinnng the contender's . for one of the places from the St. Louis district. ./ark Robinson, In Finals, Meets on or TV'iTv!
