Cincinnati, Oct. 2.—Eddie Cicotte,
Iho master pitcher of the American
League who was driven out of 'he
opening game of the world's cer.es
j esterday under a broadside of hits,
to-day expressed confidence in his
ability to come back at the Rods
whenever called upon by Manager
Cicotte, with nearly thirty vic
tories to his credit this season, is
carrying the hopes of Chicago fans
on his shoulders and they have every
confidence that he will pitch the Sox
to victory In two and possibly tjiree
of the remaining games. The mas
ter of the 'shine' and 'knuckle' ball
declared to-day that he was com
pletely unnerved when he hit Rath,
the first man up in the game yes
terday and lost all control of the
ball in the fourth inning.
Went to Pieces
"It is hard to explain," Cicotte
said, "but I was in no condition to
pitch the game that I had expected.
I felt perfectly confident before the
game started and appeared to have
'everything' when I was warming
up, but when I hit Rath, it seemed
to have a strange effect on me. I
felt so badly about it that I trotted
with him along the first base line to
see if the ball had hurt him. When
Rath assured me that he was all
right I went back to the pitching
mound, but I did not seem to be
right." Supporters of the White Sox
believe that Manager Gleason will
send Cicotte in to oppose the Reds
Betting Shows Change on
Final Result World's Series
Cincinnati. Ohio, Oct. 2. After
ruling 8 to 5 and 7 to 5 favorites
before the start of yesterday's game,
the White Sox were no better than
even money in the betting on the
world's series here to-night. Sev
eral wagers, ranging from $5OO to
$2,500, were made on to-day's con
test. Previous ,to the opening game,
odds were given that the White Sox
would win the series.
Scalpers reaped a rich harvest
selling tickets for the opening con
test, but an hour before the game
was called the speculators slashed
their prices and were apparently
anxious to dispose of their tickets
at face value. Box seats for three
games, costing $19.50 were snapped
up at prices ranging from $4O to
$6O early in the day. One visitor
paid $125 l'or three $5.50 seats for
to-day's game.
Persons having seats to sell cir
culated among the baseball crowds
thronging the hotel corridors, ped
dling their wares. The speculators
also were busy on street corners and
other places where baseball crowds
Federal authorities made one ar
rest and held one witness in connec
tion with the ticket selling. Under
the law, speculators selling tickets
for more than face value are obliged
to pay Federal war tax of fifty per
cent, of the amount received.
Revenue agents were stationed in
hotel lobbies to watch for violations
and a score of suspected scalpers
were questioned.
Detroit, Mich., Oct. 2. Benny
Leonard, lightweight champion,
scored a virtual knockout over
Charlie Metrie, of Milwaukee, in the
seventh round of what was scheduled
to be a ten-round go here last night.

Cincinnati Celebrates
Clarence Rowland, who piloted
I the White Sox to a world's cham
| pionship, is convinced that Cicotte
I will come back and beat the Reds
I before the series ends. He watched
j the defeat of the White Sox yester
day and seemed to feel the loss of
the game as keenly as Manager
Gleason. Rowlund was succeeded
by Gleason as manager af the Sox
this season.
Cincinnati fans celebrated the
first victory of the Reds in a riotous
manner. Impromtu parades were
staged in downtown streets, and ho
tel lobbies. A little German Ijand
furnished the music for one parade,
while a Scotch bagpipe band headed
another procession. The celebrations
continued until long after midnight.
Fred Mitchell, manager of the
Chicago National League team, who
witnessed the victory of the Rods
yesterday, said he never saw Reu
tlier pitch a better game.
Grover Cleveland Loudermilk, the
elongated pitcher of the Chicago I
White Sox, had a narrow escape
from missing the first game. He
sent his suit out to be pressed but \
the garments failed to come back.
The big pitcher waited in his hotel
room and was on the verge of send
ing for his playing togs when the
clothes arrived. Ixmdermilk is so
tall that he was unable to get a
ready-to-wear suit in the city that I
would fit him. I

Full of Real Puzzlers
Cincinnati. 0., Oct. 2. Tabula
tion of the pitching record of yes
terday's game shows that Reuther,
winning Cincinnati pitcher, pitched
21 strikes and 29 balls, while the
three White Sox pitchers Cicotte,

only four times. One of these was
a ball, two were high flies out and
one was a grounder on which the
batter was thrown out.

Baseball Fans Hilarious
at World's Series Game;
Watched Every Play Made
They go "bug" at a baseball
game and they go "bug" at a base
ball board. Anyone who saw the
! opening game of the world's series
as reproduced on the Ritter Electric
Player Board at the Chestnut Street
Auditorium yesterday afternoon had
just as many sensations and thrills
as if they were at the big show on
the Reds' field.
When the Reds started their bat
ting spree the crowd was all Cin
cinnati, although there was no small
army of Chicago adherents who
stood for their favorites until the
last minute and still declare that
the White Sox will turn the tables.
Cries of "Hit her out Reuther,"
"Wait on it Heine" and "Oh you
Daubert" rang through the hall dur
ing the afternoon and when Dutch
Reuther pounded out his second
triple the great throng went wild.
Anyone on the outside would have
imagined that a real ball park was
close at hand.
So complete is the Ritter board
that every possible play of the game
is shown. It was a great sight to
watch the Cincinnati players run
ning the bases in that eventful
fourth inning when five runs were
registered. Mr. Ritter has made
arrangements to reproduce every
game of the great series at Cheat
nut street hall and the baseball fans
will make it a mecca during the re
mainder of the series. A wire run
ning direct to the playing fields in
Cincinnati and Chicago affords in
stantaneous service and the play is
reproduced on the board Just a few
minutes after it has actually occur
red on the playing field. The games
start here at 3 o'clock.
Big Cities Want Klein Team
For Exhibition Contests;
Meet New York Monday
Manager John Brackenridge, of
the Klein Chocolate Company team,
may wind up the season next week.
He has bids for several games in
Philadelphia and other large cities.
Because of the success of the Klein
team over big league aggregations,
the Klein boys are a big attraction.
There may be several more games
The New York Giant lineup next
Monday will include. Burns, Doyle,
Fletcher. Fritch, Benny* Kauff,
Dubec, Benton, Griggs, McCarty,
Snyder and other stars. The game
which is scheduled for Island Park
will start at 3.30. It is probable
that Manager Brackenridge may
pitch Ritter. He is after several
other good boys and is anxious to
make an early start for next sea
: son.
'Lefty' Williams Hope of 'Kid'
Gleason in Second Bat
tle With Reds
Cincinnati, Oct 2.—Claude "Lefty"
Williams, rated as one of the best
left-handers In the American
League this season, probably will be
Manager "Kid" GleOtson's pitching
selection to stop the batting drive
of the Reds in the second game of
the world's series to-day.
While "Pat" Moran, the leader of
the Reds, did notcare to make any
official announcement concerning his
mound choice, it was generally ac
cepted that either "Slim" Sallee or
"Hod" Ellcr would oppose the White
Sox to-day.
"We got away to a flying start,"
said Manager Moran last night,
"beating Cicotte, Gleason's best bet,
and it makes no difference to my
men .what pitcher Gleason starts to
day. They said before the series
that the Reds couldn't hit. Fourteen
hits tells the story. The same bat
ting drive will carry them through
to victory.
Confidence Wltli Victory
"The Reds entered the series a
'cocky' lot of players and this vic
tory has given them a lot more con
fidence. Reuther deserved a shutout
and the Chicago players will find it
just as hard to hit our other pitch
ers. Reuther deserved great credit
for the victory. He was cool at all
times. His batting was a surprise
to me."
"We will even up the series to
day," said Manager Gleason, of the
White Sox. "when Cicotte hit Rath
in the first inning he was not him
self thereafter. I could have taken
him out then, but I trusted that
luck would enable Eddie to regain
his control. I intend to start Wil
liams to-day and have every confi
dence that there will be a different
tale to tell.
"Reuther had a world of stuff
yesterday and pitched a really re
markable game. He should have
all the credit for the victory. His
batting stamps him as a Second
"Babe" Ruth.
"Yesterday's defeat has not dis
heartened my players. I am sure
the defeat will act as an incentive
to win to-day."
Gettysburg Eleven to Meet
Penn State College Team
Gettysburg, Oct. 2. The Gettys
burg College football squad leaves
to-morrow for the opening game of
the season at State College. Judging
from the work of the team at the
present time there is no indication
that it will accomplish exceptional
feats against the Blue and White.
For two weeks Head Coach Wood
and Backfield Coach Leathers have
been striving to whip their material
in shape but the time has been in-
I sufficient to weld together a good
combination and local fans are
looking forward to State winning by
a comfortable score.
Although the Gettysburg squad is
green and may not show up well
so soon in the season the student
body is looking forward to them to
fight from start to finish and expect
that spirit to keep State from gain
ing at wilj.
LaP.ue, the big tackle, continues to
show up well and the line may be
strengthened in the near future by
the addition of Nelson Fisher, a
'Varsity guard before the war who
has just entered college.
This afternoon's practice was fea
tured by the line plunging of Adam
Houtz and a wide end run by Davis.
Phillips scored the onl£ touchdown
of the day.

him. Barrett will get Brookes on the
long distance phone in the Naval

where Brookes is instructor, and
notify him that he must be in town
some time the day before the fight.
