Sports Editor of The FjirIo. ATr-ANTA, Ga., April 4 Bigr Ed Brov'ti and his mighty bat were the main causes In the Jlve-innlng victory by B to B scored by the Brooklyn Superbas over the New Tork Yankees today, thereby making the series a deadlock at Ave (fames to five. The short engagement was frequently Interrupted by rain, and Erin Ward had beaten out a hit to Mitchell to start the sixth Inning when another heavy shower caused Umpire McGown to call It off for good. That brought the game back to even Innings, gave the Superbas a well-earned victory and will send the tourists to Chattanooga tomorrow on even terms. ' ' Our boys spotted the Yankees four runs as a starter In the game today when Dugan doubled. Combs singled, Kuth tripled to the scoreboard in deep center, Meusel walked and Plpp shot one past Andy High a mill a minute. Four runs In quick succession off Bube Ehrhardt without a putout. Business of much $ pressure from the fans on Uncle Bobble to derrick the Bube. I But Your Unoie wotteth not, neither did he listen. Ward hit to Ehrhardt and a showy double play from the pitcher to Mitchell to Eournier cleaned the bases. Scott was tossed out by Mitchell. o 1 Fhrliardt Holds Yanks to a Run. Ehrhardt repaid the confidence of his manager by holding the Yankees down to one run In the next three innings, sold run being the result " of successive doubles by Meusel and Plpp In the third. Guy Cantrell pitched the fifth inning and was pulled out of trouble by a fast double play, Fournler ' to Mitchell, after Ruth had singled. . . Undaunted by that four-run lead gained by the Yankees In the opening chapter, the Superbas came right back with two runs in their half. High led olt on Bob Shawkey with a single to center, Mitchell fanned and Cox walked. Fourner lorced Cox, Ward to Scott, Jack preventing a double play by fast running. Then came Brown with Oils first mighty slam, a drive that bounded over the outstretched hands of Earl Combs for . three bases, scoring High and Fournler. Griffith's low line drive was taken by Ruth. o Tie the Count ' In the Second. The Superbas tied the score in the scond on a single by Stock, De-Berry's long triple to center and Mitchell's double.' With the final rainfall threatening a period .to the game In Brooklyn's half of the fifth with Walte Hoyt pitching, B'ournler doubled with one out. Again came Brown. Big Ed caught one on the lioas and 'sent It low and far toward Earl CombB. The ball took a slanting bound on the wet grass through Earl's hands, shot up the steppes of tthe Ural Mountainlike barrier In deep tenter. Up the first, then the second and finally the third steppe the ball (raveled with Combs In close pursuit. By the time . Karl had reached (he third steppe, Brown was across the plate with what proved to be the winning run. - The official scorer allowed Brown onl ya single and charged Combs with an error on the hit, but, Judging by the distance the ball bounded past the fielder and climbed from Hteppe to steppe like a mountain goat, Big Ed deserve da home run. Hi-nwn himself later decided the argument. He opined that under nrdlnarv conditions Combs wouia have had held the hit down to a Klngle, but, with the wet grass, the ball took a tricky bound and he couldn't claim a circuit smash. Ilomor or Not, It Won Game. Uncle Robbie thought that under the circumstances his big center fielder ought to have been credited with a homer, but, as the decision wo nthe ball game, he had no com ttlnlnt to make.

("Special fo The Eagle). . .; Memphis, Tenn., April 4 Rairi and cold weather today gave the New York Giants a chance, to sit and meditate regarding their chances in the coming National League pennant race. The unfavorable ' elements put the crusher on the game scheduled with the Memphis Southern Association Club. ' Cheering news hit the Giant nomads in the form of avtelegram from young Freddy Lindstrom. who is at his Chicago home, tenderly nursing an Injured ankle. The wire Indicated that the injured joint was responding to treatment and that young Freddy would probably rejoin the team at Washington next week. Liindstrom is the last of the Giants' list of invalids. Frank Frisch, who alho has been sitting on the bench with a sprained ankle, is read, yand rarin' to go. He would have played In today's game had there been any. With Frlsh back and Groh and Jackson in possession o fall their physical faculties, there would be nothing much for Linstrom to do even if he were with his mates. But young Freddy Is a handy man to have around Just the same, and the glad tidings concerning him put the athletes in a cheerful mood. Dr. Mixsell Takes Princeton Squash Title The Princeton University Club squash championship passed out of the hands of Gavin Breckenrldge In the final round of the tournament yesterday afternoon before a large gallery of the club courts. Brecken-l idge's conqueror was Dr. H. R. Mix-sell ,who battled through sufely in three straight sets, 1815, 15 12 and 16 7. The match was a hard-fought affair and was a battle for supremacy from start to finish. Dr. Mixsell opened the engagement In whirlwind fashion. His fast and skillful playing sent the score up to 13 6 In a very few minutes of play. Breckenrldge halted .his opponent's offensive at this point, however, and started a rally of his own, which culminated In a tie at 13 13. Dr. Mixsell, still In perfect form, did the best work when the extra points were played for and carried the match away, 18 15. During the second Bet Mixsell held the upper hand with his hard and fast playing, while Breckenrldge showed signs of being a hit behind the pace set by his opponent. The third and last set was an easy matter for the new champion. The defending tltleholder was caught off his guard several times and ha appeared helpless before Dr. Mixscli's onslaught. COXGFJt WINS TITI.K. F. Conger won the Class B club tennis championship tllle at the Heights Casino yesterday, defeating R. W. Earle in straight sets, 6 3, 61, 6 J2. x Jakie May Led League As Best Game Finisher THE greatest game finisher in the National League last season was Jakin May of the Cincinnati Reds. May did relief duty often, being called upon to finish 21 frays. lie was in 38 games all told during which he pitched 99 innings, He only worked two complete games, however, and at the end of the campaign showed a record of three victories and us many defeats. He allowed 104 safe swats and S! runs, 33 of which were earned, lie gave 29 walks and fanned 59 batters, an exceedingly good average. "Bib" and "Pip" Falk Resemble Each Other IF BIB FALK, White Sox outfielder, ever spoils a game for his club by pulling Snodgrass or Borne such thing, his brother "Pip" with the Browns will not be able to disown him.

New Haven, April 4 Yale was da-feated, 8 to 2 today in its opening baseball game by Fordham because Capt. Ray Pond, who occupied the box for seven innings, was wild and Ineffective. He was touched for 11 hits and, although Dwyer of the visitors was located for the same number, Bond passed 5 and registered 2 Inopportune wild pitches. Pond is in poor physical condition ow'ing to a slight surgical operation two days ago, and should have been kept on the bench. Fordham's Infield played superb ball throughout, the dazzling plays ot Woerner and Dunn throttling two Yale rallies. Feasler's throwing was a feature. Midget Festa, Yale's novice shortstop, displayed brilliant throwing cleverness. Landrv's timely baiting contributed to Ford harm's victory. Today's result leaves the Yale-Fordhum score tied with three games each. Although threatening weather prevailed, and rain fell slightly, about 4.000 people saw the curtain raiser of the schedule.

Borot.ra, the "Bounding asque." &vept aside the last remain-' Ing bars of opposition yesterday and romped off with the national indoor tennis championship title In the, final round of the tournament at the 7th Regt. Armory, Manhattan. The French Davis Cup captain took the measure of Frederick C. Anderson of the Terrace Club of Brooklyn, in a four-set match at 3 6. 6 3, 6 4 6 0. It was the first time In tennis history that this title has been won by a foreigner. One-half hour later the French ace paired with A. W. Asthalter In an International doubles combination and added the doubles title to his growing collection by defeating Watson Washburn and Everett T. Herndon In straight sets at 6 3, 6 2, 8 0. Anderson started the singles match as though he were Intent on taking the title to Flatbush and keeping It there. He Jumped into the lead with a victory in. the first set. In which he played rings around the Invader at 68. The second set witnessed a reversal of the first and a duplication of the score. Anderson brought the gallery to Its feet In the third game of that set after a beautiful volley at the not, in which be came oft the victor by dropping a well-placed lob in the backcourt. The Frenchman' was unable to reach it, although he made a gallant attempt. Anderson Slumps. The local player slumped ofT after the brHllant shot and loBt the game, which gave Borota a lead of 2 1. With the score 4 1 against hlni, Anderson staged a rally, taking the sixth and eighth games on service. The Frenchman braced up and took the final game after a placement shot thst drow a round of applause. Anderson made his best attempt to come back In the third, but in spite of his superb play at the net and long driving, the Frenchman was too fast for him. The last set was taken at love by Borotra. Anderson had tired somewhat from the fast pace. The only part of his game that withstood the smashing overhead play of Borotra was his service which had been ill good working order all through the match, several of the fust ones going right through the Frenchman for aces. Hard Time In I)onlls. The International pair had no easy time in the doubles. Kveritt T. Herndon. formerly of Princeton, stopped them completely with his speedy service on which they were able to garner only the meagur total of seven points. Washburn played an erratic game throughout, rising to brilliant heights at times, especially In the short volleys at the net, and then slumping badly with easy shots which he drove Into the net or out of bountl8. His service left much to be desired and it was roughly treated by the opposition who broke through six times for games, llerndon's delivery was the exact opposite), escaping uttscathed. Along about the middle of the second net. Washburn ami Herndon changed their game from speed to slow high lobs. It was effective for a Rhort time, but Borotra soon solved it and forced them to return to their original j jilims. I The Americans made a strong bid in the final set by coming from bo-hind with three straight games which brought the score to 6 6 In their faitor. Borotra won the twelfth on his own service and the next by hrenking through Washburn. Asthalter rallied after signs of weakening and came through with his service In the next which won the match.

Aadei eo.i s i r Babe Pinelli Proves Ty Cobb Was Wrong BABE PINELLI of the Cincinnati Reds is rated one of the best third-sackers in the National League. Yet prior to becoming a star he was twice turned down by Detroit as shy big league caliber. Says Pinelli: "Ty Cobb sure did nie a big favor when ho said I wasn't a big leaguer and turned me loose. When he sent me to the minors tho last thing I told him was that I would make his Judgment look bad. I think I have delivered. "If Cobb hadn't turned thumbs down on mo and sent me back to the minors I probably would still be holding down a -spot on the Detroit bench, little more than a spectator."

BALTIMORE, April 4 It was "Whitney Day" at the Bowie track this afternoon. His light blue, bronze cap was carried home in front twice in the Capitol Handicap, which was won by Arcady, and in the second race, which was captured by Dedans wJi.h his stubleinnte, Youare, third. ' In addition to these victories. Tester, bred at. Whitney's Brookdale Farm, but sold to the Rancocas Stable as a yearling and last fall sold to J. E. Richardson, ran off with the Springtime Handicap. The bitterness of this sweet morsel at least to the Whitney followers was In the fact that Tester, a 4-year-old and discarded, beat 'out Noah, his brother, a 3-year-old, which was retained by Whitney and James Rowe. Arcady's victory was so good that It opens wide the door of anticipation regarding his performances In the 3-ycar-old spring events of 192 It was his first start since last spring. At Belmunt Park, he won tht Juvenile Stakes in a fashion to war- rant the belief that he would be one of the best Juveniles of the year. At that time, Rowe thought ihe Bon of Peter Pan Querca was the best colt that he had in training But Arcady went amiss and thougn he finished second twice, he failed to win another stnkc or purse. o Carried Top Weight In the Event. In the Capitol Handicap, Arcady was assigned 118 pounds, which wus top weight of the seven colts that started. He conceded from 3 to 18 pounds to his opponents. Bruns, which finished second, was in receipt of 18 pounds, and Balboa, 13 pounds. From the start to the finish, Arcady held command. He was weM rated in front and repeatedly shook off challenges. At the end Parke rode him out sharply to beat out Bruns. which closed fast in the stretch. Cloudland, the $lo.0()0 colt, was third during 'the early stages but soon "chucked" it. Sandhurst, coupled with Arcady in Ihe betting and favorites nt 7 to 10, followed his mate to the stretch where he quit. Dedans, making his first public appearance of the season, showed that he is a colt that will do his beat under unfavorable conditions. (iff none too well at the start for the half mile sprint, he gradually began picking up the pacemakers. Irresistible and Endor. which were having a cuthroat battle, head and head, a length In front of Dedans, with Yotia: e, his mate, fourth, two lengths r.way. o Mu in Idea hut Runs Runs Off Wl-'i Knee. .lust as Jockey Wnll.iee- nnuif a play for the loaders Pednns stumbled.

But. as agile as a panther, he quickly recovered, sprinted after the leaders, caught them at the sijrteenth pole ami from that point to the judges beut them out by a length and a half. Irresistible, favorite nt 3 to 2, had to be hard ridden to check Youaro's rush for the place honors. The latter is improving with every run and when the distance of the races for the "babies'' Is stretched to 42 furlongs he should show to bettor advantage. Endor stopped in the final furlong. He was high In flesh and the race should do him a great deal of good physically. Brother against brother was the feature of the Springtime Handicap, distance 64 furlongs. Noah, the younger, the pampered pet of the Whitney's, was installed the favorite to 75 to 100. Tester, the elder, the outcast, was at 1 1 to 2. If ever there was a false favorite it was Noah. His single vlrtory here was not half as good as the third of Tester in the Inaugural Handicap on the opening day of the meeting. o -Tester Is Ralctl Bxst By Students.

Robertson was picked up irom the sandlots of St. Louis. The Browns gave him his first opportunity in 1918. Of course he lacked experience and was farmed out to Columbus In the A. A. He played there in 1919 and the following season was sent to Joplin for more experience. The Browns recalled him that fall and he has been with them ever since. of the back stretch and carried him to the middle of thet rack when he made his bid for the lead in thu stretch. When Parke carried Tester wida he permitted the Vintner, which wa:t racing third on the rail, to slip through he opening and gain several lengths. But even against that advantage Tester overcame Vintner when he straightened out in tho stretch and he won by nearly two lengths with his head In the air.
