Two new 'faces -will be seen In the lineup of the !l"ort Wayne team, George Nlll and Ted rKaytor, the old Shamrock outfielder. Al! though It was a number ef years ago these meir broke into baseball, they havo a lot that they can show the new stars of tho diamond today. The Port Wayne city team managed by Mart Cleary is beginning to look like a 'real ball club now and is duo to burn things up the rest of tho season. Fort Wayne is taking no chances and is starting tho best bet against them. Dlstel and Heine will be the two on the firing line while they will be opposed by Olds, a eouthpaw of class, and Perkins. Game called at 3 00 p. m. PORT DOPE. Eastern tennis stais had better do their twinkling befoie the "Comet" arrives. Now that New York's street car strike Is over walking will continue to be a pastime only for tho pallbearer. A dozen passes would only mar a baseball game whei eas they would put a crap game out of commission. Jim Bagby, tho Cleveland pitcher, is normal in one respect at least. His great ambition Is to defeat Walter Johnson. People who ride a high horse usually «ro bothered by the altitude. With the exception of Jimmy Archer about all that remains of the famous old Cub machine is one nut, Heinle Zim. Fighters no longer need endurance. It's the bpectators who need It now. Ban Johnson has put the bee on band concerts in American leagua parka but he'll never suppress pennant marches, quicksteps and base solos. Ira Thomas has been signed to coach Williams college baseball 'nine. Thus Connie Mack may be able to secure a few college players next year. He only tried cut 897 rah rahs this season. MULFORD TAKES FEATURE. Colorado Springs, Col., Aug. 12.--Ralph Uulford added another victory to his string of auto racing successes Friday ·when he won the feature event in the Pikes Peak hill climb contest. His time over tho twenty and one-half mile course ·was 18 minutes 48.7 seconds, notwithstanding that ho lost one minute and 20 leconds In adjusting his carburetor. A. H. Patterson finished second in 22 minutes 15 seconds, but was disqualified for running out of the course and second place was awarded to George Buzzane, whoso time was one minute and 33 seconds slower. Einest Parrish was third and Barney Oldfleld last. A broken gas lino early in the raco forced Hughlo Hughes to retire. Tho first race, starting at noon, was won by Fred Junk in 23 minutes 4 seconds, his teammate, Roy Stentz, finishing second in 23:29, Henry Jones was third in 26:03. Billowy clouds enveloped tho lofty peak the greater part of Hie day and the ciouds along the race course heard the roar of labpring motors long before the cars came Into view. The racing machines which plowed through thick, white cloud banks, were visible for only a moment, and were swallowed up again. The winners received $600 each; 'second place carried a cash reward of $260, and third place $100. DIRECTUM MAY REACH OLD MARK. ·«...*... Plttsburg, Aug. 12.--An attractive can! featured in tho Grand circuit races Saturday was DIrectum I. Tho feature was tho Grand Rapids Railway $5,000 purse, raced under the three-heat Astern, but the Comstock stake for $3,000 and tho Matron stake for three-year-old trotters, valued at $6,000, also attracted attention. Dirwtum I, driven by Murphy, was to make an attempt to lower his record of l:66*i, established In 1915. Horsemen declared Brunto's Island IracK e one of the f«sUst In the circuit, nd anxiously awaited the result of the «fforU. .,., _ _ _ , , Former Event Such Success That Athletic Club Will Do It Again. When those Friars get something they have A good time with, they can't leave it alone. That sums up the whole situation about their picnic Sunday, Aug. 20. The club had such a swell time the last picnic they decided to take advantage of the weather and give another one. A request from all those who attended the lat picnic to repeat the stunt was the incentive for the one on the 20th. All tho members are requested to bring their baseball gloves and incidentally a little cash, amounting to about ?1.25, and to be at the club at 8 30 Sunday morning The committee In charge is as follows. Howard Wilkins, Horace Ellenwood, Carl Pierson, Elmer Kampe, Ficd Fry and Horace Low e. The Friars are making arrangements to put in the field one of tho best football teams this city has ever seen. The followers of the sport will receive the news with rejoicing, and if this year's team is to be better than last year well it is going to be some team, believe us. Pohska, of Notre Dame, is slated to be on the job next -year and will bo one of the big points of the team. "Skeets" Lambert will not be back next year and the blow- to the team will be hard to get over. The management states that it has a man that is as good, if not better, but there Is some doubt in tho minds of the fans whethci ho is any better. "Skeets" made one big hit w i t h the fans of the city and it w i l l take a big man to koock him off the pedestal. Tho club is planning on a new field but as yet no location has been found, although the club has two sites in view. NATIONAL LEAGUE, At New York-- R H.E ty.

(By Harold Johnson ) How would jou like to pay two-bits a minute for jour favorite sport 9 It's being done, though, in our best regulated households this season Not over the poker table, either, but in motor boat racing, tne most thrilling of the present day recreations of millionaires. Mileage comes high in a mile a minute motor boat as the lesult of the European war, which has boosted the price of gasoline. One gallon of fuel at 25 cents, is, consumed in skimming a mile m the latest tittle annihilating hydroplanes Gasoline, however, is only one of the minor costs of the speed boat A fortune is shot to nieces at the outset in pui- chasing the finely machined motor, built of the most expensive steels and aluminum. The life of this motor is limited for under the terrific strain of delivering e\eiy ounce of energy it can, In a frail craft, quickly shows signs of wear. The sciap heap contains the skeleton of many a champion that has scorched tho water hut a few tunes The race for the gold challenge cup to be staged in the picturesque Detroit river off Belle Isle next month, will represent an outlay of $250.000 by contestants for the building and operation of their scooters. It will be the fourteenth annual contest for this classic motor boating trophy and w i l l be preceded by minor races on the three pievious days. The couise extends up the river into Lake St Clair, making a fl\e mile clicuit, which must be completed six. times for a total distance of thirty miles for each heat daily Ten boats aie expected to meet in the classic, the field being the laigest on record Miss Detroit, !ast year's w Inner, vill defend her tile Detioit w i l l be icp- resented by two other flieis-Babj- Hai- old, which has jet to make its initial plunge, and Miss Hamtramck, another "bdio" built to develop sixty miles an hour. Barring engine trouble, Miss Minneapo- 1-s will be a contender. At the interlake regatta at Put-m-Bay she set a new world's rccoid of 6666 miles per hour Ilawkeje, owned by President A L Judson, of the American Power Boat association, is another entry. She was not rcadj for the big meet last ear and was subsequently burned so badly that it was necessary to rebuild her. Count Mankowski has nominated Ankle Deep, W. J O'Connor, of Buffalo, will send Buffalo Enquirer to tbe races, while Ugly Duckling, a speedy craft from San Francisco, and the Barnacle, which averaged 56 miles an hour against Miss Minneapolis, aie other entries.

Chicago, Aug 12--The Chicago Whit« Sox will be the 1916 champions of the American league, according to many critics here w ho have been watching their steady climb from last place to the top rung of the American league ladder. Most of the time since the start of tha season the White Sox weie struggling ftlong in the second division, not once coming to the top For tw o (lays, May 22 and 23, they were in last place, but on the nevt dav they jumped from eighth position to fifth place Fioni that time on they have been battling under a handicap. Two or thiee infieldert, have been out of the game at one time or another, and Urban Faber, one of the mainstay twirlera of the club, was on the hospital list. Today most of the athletes have recovered to such an extent that they can be called into the fray an time The retuin of Faber is one of the gieat. est assets to the club Likewise, tha re« covery of Eddie Collins' batting eye, and the heavy hitting of Joe Jackson, all terfj" to make the Chicago club a logical winner of the pennant, according to fan! here. Jack Ness, the fiist baseman, who established a world's record for consecutivf hitting in the Pacific coast league last jear, is plajing a marvelous fielding game around the initial corner, and is contributing some timely hitting Before the season was half over six different clubs held the lead in the league, Chicago being the sixth club. The race Is the closest in its historj. Boston got away in front in April and lead for a week or more, when the Yankees went in front. Boston again took the lead and was passed by Detroit, which in turn was overtaken by Washington. Cleveland, with Tris Speaker acting as pacemaker, overtook the Senators, and severl times these two clubs switched from first to second place. In June Cleveland took a good hold on top and was not pulled down until Juna 28, when Donovan's Yankees stepped in front. At that time the White Sox 'ivera resting In sixth place. The Yankees I eld the lead until July 30, when they began to slip on account of various injuries to the plav ers. Then Boston Red Sox nossd them out of fiist place, and the Whita Sox followed close on the Red Sox heels. When the Sox of Red and Sox of White started their crucial series in Chicago Aug 7 the White Sox weie half a gama ahead. AMERICAN ASSOCIATION. At St. Paul-- R.HE.
