That the Commonwealth Travel
ers are going to do their best to
push Motive Power out of second
i place was convincing proof last eve
j nlng. The Travelers defeated the
' runners-up score 4 to 0. This de
feat was rather humiliating, it be
ing a whitewash, and a crimp in
Motive Power's pennant chances.
Of course in the old ball game the
winner is not certain until the last
man is out and the flag winner this
year will come with the final game
in the West End Twilight League.
The Commonwealth, and Engine and
Firemen are in to win every game,
and what happened last evening to
Motive Power is just as likely to
come to West End. The M. P.'s we-e
game losers.
Win Game In First
The Travelers won the game in
the first inning, hitting Hart fr;
five bingles and scoring four runs.
On the other hand Herb Washinger,
had a little more speed than Hartj
and he used his puzzlers to an ad-|
vantage, doing great work in pinches, i
Pack of him was a bunch of speed
hoys who went after everything and I
robbed the Motive Power batters of
many hits. It is a question whether
West End could have beaten the
Travelers with the game they play
ed last evening.
There was a boy in the Common
wealth lineup last evening who had
ginger to spare. He handed it cut.
That was Gerdes. His work was a
big factor in the pace set by the
victors. Lochard was a new man
on fhe Motive Power team and put
up a good game. It was a great
battle between pitchers after the
first inning. Hart's bad start took
away a lot of pep from the runners
up.
How Runs Came
In the first inning Lightner drove
a long fly to center field which was
caught by Brown. Htnkle singled
over second and Howe was safe on
Eberly's error. Gerdes then ram*
through with a triple to deep right
and Hlnkle and Howe crossed the
plate. Ford followed with a double;
to right and Gerdes scored. When
Lochard returned the ball to Stew
art. the latter dropped it and Ford I
took third. Hart then left loose a
■wild pitch and Ford added another j
run. Fields singled and Smith;
struck out. Killinger was safe on!
his tap to Weaver, which the latter;
fumbled, and on this error. Fields
went to third. The inning and!
scoring was ended when Washinger!
struck out.

sr. M4/?rs FOOTBALL TEAM
WILL BE FAST GRID BUNCH;-
FIVE VETERANS IN LINEUP
St. Mary's C. C. foot ball team, of i
-teelton. will again be represented on !
the gridiron with a strong team, in j
spite of the fact that there is only five !
t eterans left from last season's lineup, i
As there will be more foot ball teams
this year with the return of many sol
diers from overseas service, it looked 1
like the St. Mary's team wouldn't be
able to get started this season, as 1
many players deserted the team to '
play on other teams.
There are or.ly five of the regular '•
men left from last season. They are ;
A. McColic, the big full back, in the j
bock line and is a big star. H. i
Farina, as good a quarterback as they '
make them ; and Paul Towsen and
Manager Nick Zerance, who will hold |
down the left and right guards, re- j
spectively.
Stars who left the team are Nelson, j
left end, who will play with Highspire ; i
Metka, left tackle, with Enhaut; Wei- 1
comer, right tackle, quit the game as I
did (Rabbit) Zerance, last year's end ; j
Sundown, sub guard, at present away; j
also Enney, last year's substitute end, !
Krasovic, the big right half back, at
Sparrow s Point. The hardest blow i
that will be felt is the departure of !
Captain Miller, last year's right end. 1
Ke was considered one of the best |
amateur ends in this part of the State, j
St. Joe's C. C., of Lancaster, was af
ter Miller, and they got him a position .
in Lancaster in order to have him on j
their team. Another big loss to the j
team is Mariney, last year's center.
Service Men in Lineup
The men that were in the service
and will try for positions are '
service and will try for positions are !
Marsico, who played left tackle on the i

young Pittsburgh crack, in the

Cincinnati, leaders of the National
League, and this season's big win

August 29. With them will he Pat
Moran and his stars. The Reds will
play the Klein Chocolate Company
team at Island Park. Game starts at

Much has been said about Pat Mo

wonders this season. He was born
at Fitchburg, Mass., Feburary 7,
1876. Height 5 feet, inches,
weighs 175 pounds.
Degnn as Catcher
He started his career as catcher
with Orange Centrals, semi-pros., in

Montreal, 1898-90; Boston Nationals!

HXRRISBURG I TELEGRAPH!
failed entirely to show the golf of
which he is capable.
Bobby Jones, the seventeen-year
old Atlanta prodigy, played bril
liantly against W. C. Fownes, Jr.,
the Oakmont veteran, and trimmed
the former national titleholder by
5 up and 3 to play.
As a result of yesterday's doings,
two younsters, for Herron is only
a year or so past his majority, will
clash to-day for the amateur links
championship of the United States.
Not in the history of American
golf has the championship ever
been fought out in the final round
by two such youthful exponents of
the game. Jones, who is playing
from the Atlanta Club is yet to see
his 18th birthday, while Herron is
not a pear or two past his majority.
Neither has Qver figured so promi
nently in a struggle for a premier
golf title of the country, although
Jones won the southern champion
ship in 1917 when but a few months
over 15.
Herron, although older than his
rival, has less general golfing ex
perience than Jones and for that
reason many expert followers of
title tournaments are inclined to
Ito 1909; Philadelphia, 1901, 'll, *l2

j pating in the World's Series.
He was a great factor in shaping
|up the Cubs and Phlllie pitchers.
] He knows how to handle men, and
Cincinnati in securing his services
made a master stroke, as like Mc-
Graw, he is always setting the pace
for the players. Moran can always
be seen on the line coaching his team
and often can be seen at ball parks
when the team is on the road, mom
| ing catching and steadying up twirl-

i lar with both the press, public and
| ball players, and is sure to have the
| Beds contenders for the pennant.
the opinion that Atlanta's youthful
star stands the better chance of
wearing the championship mantle
lost by Chick Evans on Wednesday.
Herron Has Backing
Herron, however, has the almost
unanimous backing of the Oakmont
Club members, who are laying even
money on him, although it is ad
mitted that he has never played golf
over the club course except on Sat
urdays and Sundays until August 1.
Then the firm by which he is em
ployed, learning that he had entered
the championship tournament, told
him to take the month off and see
what he could do. This and his
golf play while a student at
Princeton comprises virtually all of
his real serious work with woods
and irons.
It was generally conceded that
Herron played the best golf of the
quartet, competing in the semifinal
round. His card for thirty holes
played showed a total stroke score
of 129 as against a par of 12 4 fo
the same distance. Jones, the other
winner, took 142 against a par of
130 for his 32 holes, while the
youth's opponent, Fownes, required
153 for 33 holes. Piatt, who sprang
into national prominence by his de
feat of Ouimet yesterday fell off
again and showed 140 strokes
against a par of 124 for the thirty
holes he carried Herron along be
fore the latter could clinch the vic
tory.
Jones Bents Fownes *™"
Jones had too many shorts for
Fownes. He hit with the confidence
that marks the play of a cham
pion. The ball was picked cleanly
from tee or turf, and shot straight
for its destination. When playing to
the pin, Jones cut the legs from
under the ball so it stopped dead
and he had the punch behind his
woods and long Irons.
Fownes' shots lacked real snap.
He depended more upon his experi
ence and knowledge of the course,
but it was not enough to overcome
Jones, who during the past two
years has been smashing shots at
flags on golf courses in all parts
of America. All golf pins look the
same to Jones, as he cracks the ball
up to the flag.
The best golf of the Herron-Platl
match was played during the third
nine holes. At the close of the
forenoon round the local player led
his Philadelphia rival by five up.
After luncheon the pair resumed
the duel and the Philadelphian won
the 19th with a birdie four, his
third shot being dead to the pin,
482 yards from the tee.
Thomas W. Murphy Has
Three More Good Winners
Poughkcrpsle, N. Y„ Aug. 23.—Fine
weather, a fast track and good rac
ing marked the third day of the
Grand Circuit meeting at the Hudson
River Driving Park. Thomas W.
Murphy repeated his performance of
Wednesday in driving three winners,
among them Directum J in the free
for-all pace.
While Cox scored with Mignole in
the 2.09 trot, and Natalie the Great
secured revenge on Mr. Dudley for
her defeat of last week in Philadel
phia by taking the two-year-old
trot, after losing the first heat with
a bad break at the finish. When Ly
man Brusie took Mr. Dudley to a
2.11 victory in the first heat, ha hung
up the second fastest figures that
have been made by a two-year-old
trotter this year.
Directum J's victory was in straight
heats over Ben All, ttie only other
entrant. Murphy also won with Goldie
King in the 2.20 pace, and Esther R
in the 2.08. Both outclassing the
field.
ORIOLES CLOSE WINNERS
The Orioles yesterday defeated the
Sons of Rest in a seven-inning ball
game, score 7 to 6. Meek, with a
two-bagger and a singe, while men
were on the bases, featured the
game.

lished a new world's record for a
three-heat race over a half mile track
here yesterday in winning the free
for-all pace in 2.05 V* 2.02% and
2.04.
The mile in 2.02% also establishes
a new track record and a new heat
record in a race. The little sorrel
mare came within half a second of
her mile track mark. For breaking
the local track record of 2.03%, 3300
extra was paid.
In winning the race in straight
heats Lizzie defeated the pair of
Reading sidewheelers, Roan Hal and
Tommy D., outracing and outbrtishing
them. Roan Hal took her up the
first heat, but could not land. Then
Tommy D was sent out for the sec
ond, Hal trailing in last place. This
was a well-rated mile. Lizzie finished
strongly, entirely on her own cour
uge, as neither of the other horses
were near her at the finish as she
flashed under the wire in 2.03%.
