From start to finish, the battlefield was the scene of turmoil and deadly eneoun- ter, and the class of football played i was the kind that tickled the fans. j The Britts, for a team that had its origin with the advent of this year's season, have put up good bail right I through the series, and their last game was .a fitting climax to their young 'endeavors. They sure had the Cal- Schardt and j lies going for .the first half, though Ferguson and (in the second, the Scotchmen, as us-j ual, displayed their superior tactics and won out by a score that stood 3- 1 at full time. I The game was called at 7 p. m., with "Bob" handling the whistle and j the Britts getting the kick-off. They fouled and Anderson took the kick, i landing dangerously. MeDowall sav- whistle sounded full time and 3-1 re- mained the score. Following are line-ups': goal; Crawford, An- derson, .backs; White, Smith. Ilvena, halves; Glenn, Page, Moore, Weymss, Oliver, forwards. goal; Chisholm, Pearson, backs; Scott, Walker, .Mc- Millen, Mill ward, Muir, 'Wright, Cox, Perkins, forwards.

Ray- mond Cobb last week- felt the first touch of discipline he has experienced since Manager Jeninings took charge of the Tiger "team. He was told curt- ly when he appeared at the "park that the Tigers could get along without him. Whereat many Tigers chuckled with glee, for notwithstanding Ms popularity with the tans, who do not know the inside doings of ball clubs, he is not popular with his team-mates. He is hot-headed and overbearing. Par- ticularly he does get along well with Davy Jones, Mclntyre. Bush and one or two others. In Tuesday's game Dones" missed a signal for a -hit and run play and the affair went wrong. The players-had some hot words over the matter after the game. Cobb did Play. Trainer Tuthiir was the only man at the club house. He trotted out to the field and told Jennings that .Ty was on iand. Jennings sent word to" the king of .ball players that he need not ibother to put on.his uniform, as the Tigers could get along without him.

At any rate, .it got to the ears of Manager Jennings, and set him to thinking about who was running the team. Thursday Oobib appeared at the olub office and announced that he was ready to play again. He had 'thought better of his little hotheadedness, he explained. President Navin referred him to Manager Jennings. He did not hunt up Jennings but went out to the park just 'before the time for .call of nings on Friday and has since (been more in Ms regular po- sition. Takes Pen in Hand Ty Cobb came out in an, open let- ter to'-day answering criticisms of the last few days. The letter says in part: "As for the dissension in the club, I can only point fo our continual victories. We are doing our -best to win another pennant for Detroit, and when the end comes the fans of De- troit will find us there." MAROONS KEEP COMING Winnipeg, Aug.

The wise ones have been saying all summer: "Wait till August then watch the Tigers begin to hit that ball. The Tigers will outgame the Athletics. Boston is a good finisher, too. The youngsters on the Athletics will blow up on the stretch." Well, August is here, and the young- sters aren't showing any symptoms of blowing up yet. They haven't shown any signs of quitting, and are sailing along, winning games with almost monotonous regularity. They are now 11 1-2 games ahead of Boston and 14 games ahead of Detroit, with only 45 left to piay. Pretty slim chance for the runners-up. Chicago is still ahead of the strug- gling Pirates and Giants, with a nice though not particularly dangerous lead. Cinch for Minneapolis in the Asso- ciation, it seems. Sioux City and Den- ver are running a pretty race in the Western League. FIGHT CALLED OFF New York, Aug.
