Chance May Manage Cubs
Rumors from Los Angeles, the home
of Frank Chance, former manager of
the Chicago Cubs, indicate that the
former peerless leader, as he was
known, in the days when he was at the
height. of his fame, may again take the
reins' of the depleted North side club
of Chicago, '
Chance has been advanced by his
Chicago friends and certain baseball
organiations as a possible manager of
the Cubs for next year as successor to
Evers, who was recently disposed.
Chance said "that he had'not received
any' word from club directors, but
that if the managership were offered
to him he would be glad to get back
intO the .harness.
Ileilman and Hornsby Lead Majors
Harry Helmann of the Tigers is
still far in the lead among the Am-
erican league batters. Heilmann is
out in the front with an average of
.420 for 99 games. His closest rival is
Manager Ty Cobb who has rung up an
average of .401 in 79 games., Heil-
mann is also the leader in number of
hits with 167 to his credit.
During the recent series with New
York, however, Heilman has not
fared so well, and has had rather a
languid time in the metropolis. In 12
times to bat against the Yankees, Heil-
man got only one safe blow.
In the National leagueaRogers
Hornsby, of the St. Louis Cardinals,
continues to 'hold an even tighter grip
on the baiiting honors than does Hel-
mann in the American league. The
Cardinals' star second baseman has
batted at a clip of .417 for 98 games,
and leads in number of hits with 159.
His closest rival in batting is Ross
Young, of the Giants, who is pounding
the sphere for an average of .371.
Kelly leads the league in home runs
with 19, while Frisch is showing the
way to all the major league players
in base stealing with 32 thefts to his
credit.
Makeup of Cup Team Incertain
Who will represent America on the
Davis Cup team? This is the ques-
tion facing the committee which will
choose 'the American representatives
for the international cup. According

'SODA PRICES ONCE MORE
Editor, The Wolverine:
Remembering the wails of our State
street merchants -as to the unfairness
of the college paper in exposing their
jucy profits I made it a point to make
some inquiries upon the subject while
in South Bend last week.
During the time I was there I had
four sodas, one sundae, and perhaps
five soft drinks, such as root-beer,
cherry smash, lemon and orange
crush. Sodas and sundaes are . 11
cents, the soft .drinks six cents.
Lest the down-trodden local' bar-
tenders think me exaggerating I will
further add that the drinks served me
in ;outh Bend at the cheaper prices
were better than the average drink
serve in Ann Arbor. I say this delib-
erately. 'Just tvo instances will do., I
have several times ordered root-beer
jt the Calkins-Fletcher store; corner
South and East University and both
times it was 'very poorly made, .to
my way of thinking. This Is the same
place ,where I bought four ice cream
cones some time ago and was gharged
40 cents. I have (never bought any
since. At the Grey Shop a week or'so
ago I got a malted milk which, to me
had so little malted milk.in It that
would have sworn it was a milk-shak
had not the, bill been for more than

that costs.
I don't know anything about the
confectionery business, but it does
seem too bad that if stores in Detroit
South Bend, Jackson and other towns
can sell sodas at ten cents, our mer-
chants must charge 15 and 20 cents
for the same thing. Wouldn't it be sad
if our campus dealers were forced to
compete with them to live? Let u
all pray for the poor merchants.
I asked the proprietor of one of th
South Bend stores if he made money
on a ten cent soda (war tax 1 cent, o
course) and he told me that if he
t didn't, he wouldn't be in the business
When I told him that one of our mer
chants said he couldn't sell a soda fo
less than 20 cents the South Bend ma:
laughed in my 'face.
_ I am perfectly willing to be cor
vinced, but so far the only defense pu
up by campus confectisonery owner.
. that I can see have been the bac1k
- handed crack at the student publica
- tion by one and window card by th
*other. 'I wonder, by the way, ho'+

to regulations this decision must be
announced 21 days before the match- s
es. Since the challenge round is
scheduled to begin Sept. 2, the United
States team must be named by Aug.
12.
Outside of Tilden, William M. John-
son probably looms as the next most
likely candidate. The former national
champion is thought to be rounding
into his best form despite his defeat by
Washburn at Newport. The Californ-
ian has been doing well lately, and
should be at the peak of his form when
the international matches begin.
Dope has been badly mixed up in
some of the recent matches. Vincent
Richards has beaten both Williams
and Tilden, only tobe beaten laterWby
Williams. Johnston has beaten Wil-
liams and has lost to Washburn. Wash-
burn has also conquered Williams and
may be considered in the selectioa of
the team.
Speaker's Pitchers Fall
Tris Speaker is having trouble with
his pitching staff that carried him to
a world's championship last season.
Coveleskie has a bad day now and
then, but in general he is the Indians'
most dependable boxman. Bagby who
led both major leagues last year in
games won, has been able'to do little
better than break even this year.
Duster Mails who made a sensation-
al finish when the Cleveland team
needed a little bracing has a win-
ning percentage under .600, and is now
on the casuality list with wrenched
muscles. Ray Caldwell is not showing
the form he displayed last year.
Morton's occasional appearance on
the mound leads to the belief that he
is far from being as effective as he
was in his earlier years with Cleve-
land. Uhle has been effective against
some clubs while Sothoron is ,not yet
considered a dependable hurler. The'
Indians hitting has offset poor pitch-
ing, but whether this hitting will win
a pennant for them is doubtful. Cleve-
land has scored 70 more runs than
New York yet cannot draw away from
them, which points to the Indians'
weak pitching.
New State Champions
Michigan will have new state cham-
pions in tennis when the state tennis
tournament opens at the Detroit Ten-
nis club today. Walter Wesbrook, '20,
the Wolverines' star net man will be
unable to compete, because of the op-
eration which he recently underwent
for appendicitis, Last year Wesbrook
was state champion. Walter is also
holder of the doubles crown with Sim-
mons, a Cleveland player. Neither
Simmons or Wesbrook will compete
this year so there are sure to be new
champions.
