hope, fell in tw\o rounds while Phila-
delphia made five runs.. Caldwell, a
former Yankee castoff, came to the)
rescue and succeeded in holding the
Mackmen while Cleveland pounded
out 15 runs and 20 hits.
More hitting was demanded by the
public, and they got it.. It formerly
took the White Sox about three games
of heavy hitting to amass 20 hits,
yet they won their games. Is the cause
of heavy hitting the live ball, or does
it go in streaks, as Cobb claims it
does? If his theory is correct then we
may expect again to see the old 2 to.1
games, now a treat in the majors.
Pirates Hold Lead
Pittsburgh now ocupies first place .
in the National league by a safe mar-
gin of five games, while the Boston
Braves who were pressing New York
for second place took a sudden set-
back when the lowly Cubs annexed
double header from them. Pittsburgh
has been playing an excellent brand
of baseball, and with Babe Adams and
Wilbur Cooper- have held their -early
Should the Pirates win the pennant,
Babe Adams will again perform in a
world series. Detroiters know how
well Babe pitched in 1909, but to fea-
ture in the world's series .of 1921 will
be unique. Few pitchers have come
back like Adams. Whether the old
master still has the same stuff on the
ball is questionable, but he succeeds
in outwitting the batters. Aside from
Cooper, Adamus, and Maranville on
short, the Pirates do not look as strong
on paper as the Giants, and even Mar-
anville is hardly on a par with Ban-
croft. Should New York win, the
world's series will develop into a city
series between the New York teams;
the second in history.
Suzanne to Meet Mola
Mlle. Suzanne Lenglen, champion
woman tenins player of the world, and'
Mrs. Molla Bjurstedt Mallory will again
contest for supremacy before the
French net expert leaves America.
Mlle. Lenglen was taken ill with
bronchitis while playing a match with
Mrs. Mallory at Forrest Hills, New
York. The American expert had al-
ready taken the first set 6-2 when her
French opponent was taken sick and
forced to default the match. "'
During a recent meeting in France
Mrs. Mallory, national woman's cham-
pion, met defeat by Mlle. Lenglen.
Since acquiring her world's title Mlle.
Lenglen has planned a trip to Am-
erica to meet the American players. A
number of women players have been
practicing to regain the title lost by
Mrs. Mallory. She seems superior to
other American women, however, and
in the first tournament on this side
for the French girl a default resulted.
Mrs. Mallory has promised Mlle.Leng-
len another match.
and are or are not obvious, depending
on the point of view.
Not So Very Black
I am forced to agree with you,
Grad, G. D. E. is not as black as he
is painted. As far as I can make out
he has only one fault which I hasten
1. He is a bore. Wait, gentle Grad,
be not wroth, I hasten to explain! His
style is as weighty as-as---well,
as weighty as Johnson's. One tires
visibly after having read a few lines.
Even the extraordinary words do not
keep the mind of the reader awake.
So, you see, I have not been harsh
with G. D. E. He has one very in-
teresting bit of originality in his make-
up. You see, Grad and R.., D. S., I
shall be perfectly fair, and present
both sides.. Our boy has the faculty of
creating words which have never been
used before-very expressive words,
too, and their originality is but one
of their virtues. They have never been
placed on paper before, except by
Mencken, and perhaps, Nathan.
Never Reads Critique
But wait, I forget, I ramble. G. D. E.
has one other fault. It is strange that
I never thought of it before. I will
apologize by saying that I never read
the Critique past paragraph number
one before I saw all these interesting
letters. "Enough," as G. D. E. says in
his characteristic fashion.' The fault,
to be brief, is that he doesn't say any-
thing. He just has a good time, and
tells us about it. He had just the best
little time in the world reading all
those pretty colored books by Knut
Hamsun, and he wants his readers to
know all about it. That is why I think
all this column-filling to be foolish.
They the stepping on our boy because
of his boyish enthusiam! I hope, Grad
and R. D. S., that I have helped you
two out in stopping all these naughty
things they are saying about G. D. E.
P. S.-But there is one thing that I
must know. What on earth is im-
papyrated garbage? Where can I get,
some? Is it ancient? I hope that G.
D. E. will read as far as this before
he becomes too flattered, and will make
repfy to my question in his next Crit-

Babe Makes Record Homer
In a game against the Chicago White
Sox at Comisky park Wednesday, Babe
Ruth, king of the hdme run swatters
made his forty-fifth homer of the sea-
son and the one hundred and forty-
eighth of his career in the majors.
This swat is described as being the
longest one ever hit during the his-'
tory of the national game. It was a
dead line for right center, and not a
Chicago outfielder made a move for it,
knowing moves were useless. About
the time Babe reached second it sail-
ed over the bleachers, out near the
scoreboard. It is estimated that the
ball hit the ground on the field at a
distance of about 475 feet from home

Grad, we are all entitled to our opin-

G. D. E. may be all right in his way.

have forgotten who said it, (behold, a.
point for the. negative), but he called

There can be no doubt of the fact that
our boy is intellectual, for he reads
books, doesn't he? Anyone who reads
books is intellectual', isn't he? There
can be no doubt that he is an egotist,
