Septetiiber 4, it was announced Sunday by President Johnson of the American league. The remaining contests, if any, will be played on the home grounds of the American league pennant winning team. War charities will share in .he receipts of the championship games. President Johnson said. President Johnson also announced that the national commission would cable reports and features of each game to the American and Canadian troops overseas.

Cecil made a bold bid' for fame several weeks ago with a number of well pitched games, one of whldh was a shutout registered at the expense of the Brooklyns. Immediately thereafter, however, he slipped back a hit and blew rather alarmingly- in one or two contests, but following his work on the western trip there is none who will dispute his claim to recognition as one of the best young bojcroen the old league has seen in many a day. Pitcher by Instinct. Cecil is a pitcher by instinct and nature fashioned him well- for his job. Long of limb, slender but powerful in build, with a keen aye, a clear head and about as much nerve as any rookie has shown hereabouts in some time. He Is well fitted for the task of baffling batters. Opposing pitchers all look alike to Red. He fears none of them, and if they don't exhibit a proper amount of respect for him, he soon sets them in their place. The best of them don't get away with anything at the plate with Red, for even if his proper name is Cecil, he's a bad fellow to pick on. In Backwoods Town, Cecil Algernon was born in Fort Meade, Fla., says he was IC years old bef(=ire he ever saw a railroad train. About a year or two later, he avers, he first learned that real money was paid to men for playing baseball, a game which had alays been his favorite. His first engagement was with a team representing a nitrate plant near his home, .and from there he drifted to various semi-professional around Tampa. McGraw discovered him pitching for the Waco club of tho Texas league in the spring of 19X0, kept tabs on him through that season and bought him In the tall. Last year he wa? farmed out to tho Rochester club of the rnte;-natlonnl league where he traveled at a clip that convinced McGraw that he was ready for fast company pires appointed to officiate in the ser-ie.s while the National league selected the veteran "Hank" O'Day and William Klem. Details tor the annual classic were announced'by President Johnson after official sanction for the games had been given by Secretary Baker. The secretary, as the result al an appeal from the national baseball commission, granted an extension of 15 days on the "work or fight" order as it affects professional baseball players, so that the series could be played. Under the new ruling, players on the two contesting clubs must be engaged in some essential occupation by September 15. Baseball i.'s expected to contribnte between ?30.000 and ,?40,000 to "war charities under tho plan suggested by the natior al commission, which agreed to donate 10 per cent, of its revenue from the series and recommended that each league as well as the contesting clubs' participating players, officials, and other officials, contribute a like amount. The national commission could not arbitrarily rule that the players, club o"rers and leagues must give up a shore of their receipts to war charities President Johnson said, but it recom mended contributions to such worthy cr.use and he felt confident the recom mendations would be carried out. Basing his figures on the receipts of the 1917 series, he thought between ?30,000 and $40,000 would be realized. Because of the demand made upon the public for contributions for patrl' otic causes, and also for the invest ment in Liberty bonds and thrift stamps, the commission decided to materially reduce the prices of admiS' slon In order to enable patrons to at tend the games at reasonable prices. The price of box seats, which a year ago sold for $5 was reduced to |3. Grandstand reserved seats wil'. sell fcr $1.50, pavilion seats, for ?1 and bleacher seats for 50o. Radical Changes. few Yoik, Aug. 27.-Many radi changes will bo noted in the arrangements for the holding of tho coming world series. It is reportcjl N-ON[ GOLF SHOT tlonal committee last winter the players of tho winning and losing teams will receive, respectively, $2,000 and $1,400 each, in place of the usual division of 60 per cent, of the proceeds of the first four games; providing the 60 per cent, amounts to $152,894. In case the 60 per cent, falls below the figures the respective shares of the players participating shall be scheduled in the ration of the: decrease in the aggregate player's revenue this year as compared to 1917. All players to take part in the series must have been eligible on Au' gust 15, in place of the usual August 1, The'list of the eligible players of the Chicago National league club follows: Fred Mitchell, manager; Turner Barber. Paul Carter, Thomas A. Clark. Charles A. Deal, Phil B. Douglas, Max Flack, Claude R. Hendrix, Charles J Hollochcr, Otto Knabe. William Kllle-ter Jr., Leslie Mann, Fred C. Merkle, E. C. Martin. W. F.

P. Goodspeed, a Yoiingtakah Country Club member did recently. Tho feat was accorapHshcd while playing the short seventh hole, only 140 yardH long. Ooudspeed'a ball went into the hole nn tho carry. Jack Mackie, the Inwood professional, explained tho other day ho^ It was that the fiftoonth hole'had been lengthened from 133 to 160 yards. It seems that not long since Joseph Op-ponhcimor, a Cliuss B man, made the hole in one, and he proceeded to add to the committee's discomfiture by declaring that ilio hole was a cinch, and even throatonlng to ropoat tho performance. It wuH shortly afterward that the too was pushed hack. Acting along similar, linos of prO' caution, the Inwood handicap com' mitteo, so tho story gpoa, proceeded to clip thi! wings of (I prococioiiB member who Hhowpd a complete disregard for par by makng the first hole In '2.
