The Black Sox are now occupying tho second position and the Harrisburg crew will have to win at least one game to stay out in front. Oscar Charleston is pointing Henry Gillespie and Geechie Corbett for these irays while Ben Taylor, who directs the play of the dark hosed clan, will very likely send Tarleton Strong and George Britt to the hill. The Black Sox are also in for a strenuous day Monday when they make their first appearance of the season at Hilldale i'ark and play iud Kolden's Darby Daisies a morning and afternoon engagement. The Bal timore team defeated Hilldale in a twin bill at Baltimore earlier in the season and the Philadeiphians will try to turn the tables on the box. Jim Keenan's Lincoln Giants have been going along at a 60-50 clip. The Bronx delegation has a good defensive club and one that carries a punch nn the attack, hut is handicapped by an array of young and inexperienced pitchers. As the season roils ny, however, Lanky Lefty Gilmore, Rube Chambers and Ed Dudley are three youngsters who will very likely come through and give John Henry Lloyd the brand of pitching that will edge the Lincoln's up in the win column. Dick Lundy's Bacharach Giant3 got off on the wrong foot and the seashore team has lost seven out of nine starts. However with the caliber of players on the team's roster, the Bees' are not destined to bo a second division club unless something goes radically wrong at Atlantic City. Luther Farrell, the Bees' big southpaw Is proving to be one of the league's sensations. Aside from hurling winning ball, Farrell plays the outfield when not pitching and has won three battles with home run clouts. While the newly formed Newark Stars have played two and lost them, Wilbur Cretin's entry is no weak sister. Crelin has gathered a squad of well known players and with Andy Harris, the Bryn Mawr youth at the helm, the Stars should give a good account of themselves. In both' games lost to the Lincoln Giants the scores were close. Persistent Challenger of Dempsey to Box Here; Joe McCabe in Comeback Joust Marietta Beats Juniata ' HUNTINGDON, May 29. Marietta batsmen pounded the offerings of Snyder, veteran Juniata pitcher, batsmen to all corners of the field and had little difficulty in defeating the locals here yesterday, 11-5. I Harry Wills, who has found public- sympathy about as mobile as a stationary bathtub, is adopting new tactics In an effort to stimulate Interest in promoting himself into a championship bout with Jack Dempsey. Heretofore Wills, or the Black Panther, has been content to remain in his Harlem apartment and hurl challenge after challenge at the heavyweight king. These tactics brought him nothing but hoarseness, as it is difficult for a citizen of Logansport, Indiana, to become frantic over a huge black man Imitating a circus barker many hundreds of miles away. Wills, consequently, has decided to circulate around the hinterland and Rhow the rustics his fistic form, thereby thinking to impress them into demanding a meeting with Dempsey. Inasmuch as Wills has failed In every other attempt to meet Dempsey with loaded gloves, this method can do no harm. Will Box Ten Rounds One of Wills' early stops will be In this city, .where he will appear June 14 for ten rounds against three opponents physically unable to dim his prestige. One of the shock absorbers will be Jeff Clark, a veteran of veterans, who will try to remain in the ring for six rounds. The others probably will be sparring partners. The appearance of Wills, if it will do nothing else, will srive local pug- dom an opportunity to judge whether the black shadow is the fighting man he once was, or whether he is traveling on his reputation. For that reason he is welcome. Records give Wills nothing the best of it in comparison with his principal rival, Gene Tunney. The Panther refused emphatically to mingle with Tunney in a bout that would have removed one or the other from the horizon of challengers. He steered clear of Tom Gibbons and Tunney knocked the St. Paul Irishman kicking, the first time the trick was ever turned. Bartley Madden lasted fifteen rounds against Wills and was strong at the finish. Tunney dropped him in something like three rounds. Until that eventful night no referee had counted ten over Madden'g recumbent figure. Luis Angel Firpo, considerably tamed by the time Wills met him, staggered through fifteen rounds, an incident that speaks none too highly of Harry's punitive powers. May Fight September 18 Dempsey is certain to fight this year, probably on September 16, and the bout will be staged by Tex Rick-ard. Rickard wants Tunney, the New York Boxing Commission is split on Tunney and Wills, and the general public is indifferent. If wills can generate public opinion ZINN, IN SHAPE, HURLS BOILING SPRINGS TO WIN .CENTRAL CUMBERLAND COUNTY LEAGUE W. L. Pet. Boiling Springs ... 3 0 1.000 Churchtown 1 1 .500 Mt.

Jones, driving an Elcar Special, lost control of his mount on the second lap Thursday, crashed into the wall and received a fractured skull. He died in a hospital last evening. Seventeen drivers have now qualified for the big event by sending their tiny cars spinning over the two and a half mile course at an average speed of eighty-five miles per hour for ten miles.

SAYS Welling Finds A Fighter The Fellow Licked Jo His Name is Boots Antley The Rise of Goldstein Looks Like Great Youngster , By DAMON RUNYON International Feature Service. Ino. Copyright. 128 JOE WELLING, a cracking good lightweight of the past ten years, who once fought Benny Leonard for the title, came bock from the South some months ago chattering about a youngster he had encountered down there. "His name's Boots Antley," said Joe Welling. "They call him Southern lightweight champion, and he can fight." - "How do you know!" someone asked. "Well," said Joe, "I'll tell you how I know I FOUGHT HIM!" You might say that this is a good method of getting a line on a fighter, and yet it isn't always absolutely certain. Harry Greb fought Tiger Flowers, then somewhat obscure, out in Fremont, Ohio, and came back to New York saying Flowers was a great fighter. .. Greb was so convinced of Flowers' ability that he bet heavily on the negro against Jack Delaney, and encouraged others to bet. As you know, Delaney knocked out Flowers in their first time, then did it again as a convincer. But as far as Greb is personally concerned, Flowers remains a great fighter. He beat Greb for his middleweight title. MY OPERATIVES tell me that young Boots Antley gave Joe Welling quite a beating, and almost knocked him out. Wherefore Welling is pretty sure that Antley is a good fighter. In fact, Welling thinks he may win the lightweight championship. He encouraged a friend, Jack Maurer, to send for Antley, and the youth with the euphonious name is now in New York seeking pugilistic engagement, with Joe Welling earnestly advocating his immediate employment. Perhaps Welling will meet the same financial fate in his advocacy of Ant ley as Greb did in the case of Flowers. I m not so sure that fighters are always the best judges of their op- j ponents. I would rather have a fight H SCRANTON GAINS LEAD AS ROSES DOWN TRIPLETS Binghamton's lease as New York-Penn pacemaker expired yesterday when the Triplets dropped their second game at York.

However, Joe Welling happens to be much more intelligent than the average lighter, therefore his opinion is worth some thing. He says Boots Antley is a hard puncher, and knows how to fight. He believes that Antley can beat Eocky Kansas right now, and if you should happen to suggest that Kansas isn't the fighter he used to be, Welling will reply: "Well, he's CHAMPION I " ANTLEY IS JUST 21, and weighs from 130 pounds to 133. That is to say, he can make the junior lightweight limit If necessary. Strange we have never been able to dig up a better name for that division. Junior Lightweight seems to stick. The Southern fighter has knocked Tony Caponi, the younger, who is not to be confused with the old Tony Caponi, the middleweight, Claude Wil son, Charles 1'lttman, r reddie uoore, and quite a number of others, whose names, mean about as much as those mentioned. He holds some decisions, Welling claims, over better known fighters. He has beaten Lew Mayr twice, Pedro Campo, Red Herring, Goldie Aheard, Chick Kansas, Tommy Ryan, Lou Gugleimini, and numerous others. In fact, Boots Antley claims victories by knockout or decision over some forty-seven exponents of The Manly Art of Scrambling Ears of Various grades. It would appear that the young man has something. The lightweight division at this time can stand numerous recruits. It seems to be at low ebb, though as a matter of fact I see some pretty fair lightweights scattered around. Sammy Mandell, of Rockford, 111, is expected to beat Rocky Kansas for the title when they meet in Chicago this summer, and I consider Mandell one of the very best of the lightweights. , HE IS A FINE boxer, but not much of a puncher. However, men have won the title and made plenty of money on far less than Mandell possesses. He is at least colorful. Kansas is getting $50,000 for the Mandel fight, and you can lmaeine the horror in Mandell circles if Sammy failed to beat the old Rock of Upstate New York. Stanislaus Loayaza, the Chilean, and Phil McGraw, of Detroit, are rip- snorting, slugging fellows in the light- weieht division, who would be terrors In long distance battles. They don't strike me as terrible hitters, but they hit often, which sometimes counts more than bitting hard.

The reconstruction of the Senators Is definitely under way and the local baseball situation, which has been clouded with disappointment since May 15, should aoon become normal again. Right on top of signing Art Rooney, an outfielder of merit. Boss Johnson and the club officials decided to expend currency to acquire Dick Hughes, sparkling inflelder, from the Pittsburgh .Pirates. These units may be all that are needed to put the Senators in a winning habit. Johnson hopes this will prove the case. Hughes starred in the New York-Penn last season with Williamsport and his performance at third base, inspected by major league ivory hunters, promoted his sale to the Pirates. But the former Gray was not quite ready for major league service, although breaking into that infield would require a Collins or Hornsby. The Pirates sent Hughes to the Waterbury club in the Eastern there until the Senators, determined WirrorLose NEW YORK-PENNA. LEAGUE Win Lose L. 9 8 9 11 12 15 16 16 W. .16 .14 .15 .14 Scranton . .

After rallying to tie the score In the seventh and closing Inning against West Fairview, Camp Curtin was nnabb to keep the plate clean and the West Shore nine scored the winning run In its half. The score was 5 to 4. Myers, who collaborated with Wagner in pitching West Fairview to a 9-6 triumph over Enola High on Thursday, was touched for nine hits by Camp Curtin, but sharp fielding helped hira over numerous rough spots. Camn Curtin grabbed the lead In the second with one run, only to be tied in West Fairvlew's half. The third inning produced a West Fair-view run and Camp Curtin knotted the count in the fourth. Two runs In the fifth put the winners into the lead again, and Camp Curtin. after beins held scoreless in the sixth, tied the score in the sev enth. Then it was that Myers, who had nreviouslv hit a home run for his team, came through with another circuit thrust to decide the battle. CAMP CURTIN W. FAIRVIEW ab r. ho.s ab.r.h.o.a.

League and he has been shining to get the club back on Its feet, went out and purchased him. Hughes will report to Johnson next week at Williamsport and may be inserted at any one of the three positions on the left side of the field. Rooney is expected today. Levi Stays on Bench Johnson shifted the lineup yesterday and kept John Levi on the bench. The Indian, in the throes of a prolonged slump, should benefit by the rest and either Comstock or Rooney should fill in to good advantage. Comstock patroled centerfleld yesterday, Doherty was in left and Strait in right and this combination snatched everything that came its way. Losing yesterday's game to Elmira, the twelfth consecutive defeat, was a tough break. Andy Phillips held the Colonels to eight hits and three runs, but Williams was paralyzing local bats and the final score was 8 to 0. Incidents like this, however, are frequent when a team Is losing. Kin-nere, Phillips, Bailey and Pinto have each turned in pitching performances since the losing streak started that would win nine games out of ten. Brilliant fielding was uncorked by both teams, the Senators cutting down potential base-hits with precision and eclat. Dash at second base was the defensive hero, simply because he got more chances than his mates. What proved to be the winning run came across in the second, when Donovan walked, went to third on Hanley's distant smash and scored on an infield force. Kirby doubled in the fourth and rode home on the impetus of Horn's single. The third and final run was produced in the eighth.
