Cincinnati, Aug. 26.-Hal Chase, suspended first baseman of the Cincinnati National league team late to-day sued the Cincinnati Exhlbititn Company, owners of the Cincinnati baseball club, for 11,690, which he claims is salary due him and unpaid. He appends a copy of the contract which he says was entered into by him and the company January 31, 1917, and which stipulates a salary of 57,800, payable $550 each two weeks during the playing season. The contract he seta forth was for a period of two years LAST OBSTACLE TO WORLO SER ES SEPT. 4, REIVE Cincinnati, -�Vug. 28.- August Herrmann, chairman ot the National Biise-ball Commission, white attendins the Republican State convention at Col-umbu.s, last night, received the odi-cial permission of Provost Marshal Crowder for the pennant winners ot the National and American Leagues to engage in a world's series. The telegram was scut to Mr. Herrmann here but was forwarded to him nt Columbus. It reads: "The request contained in your letter of August 20. asking for the gk-tension of the application of the work or light order to professional baseball players of the winning teams of the National and American Leagues is granted by the secretary ot war. The period ot extension will be until Sept. 15. Necessary instructions have "jcen issued by telegraph. (Signed) "CROWDER." The granting of this permission removes the last obstacle to holding the world's series which will start in Chicago on Sept. 4. Percy D. Haughton First N. L. Owner to Enter U. S. Service COLLEGES M RETAIN FOOTBALL Gridiron Sport Pays the Bills for Otjier Games and Should be Continued The resignation of Perry D. Haughton from the presidency of the Boston Braves to take up active duties as a major connected with the national army chemical war servicei strange to say, excited littio or no coniniont. Major Haughton Is the first National league club owner to respond to the call of the country. "Cap" Til Huston, half owner of the New York Yankees, enlisted shortly after the United States entered the war, and Ban Johnson last fall threatened to enlist, but Haughton is the first National leaguer to take the step. H.aughton has for years been one ot Ihe foremost figures In American sport history. He gained tame in the lato '90's as a football and baseball player at Harvard University. Later as a coach. Haughton comes from an old Massachusetts family and for years held an executive position in the State Street Trust company ot Boston. His coaching system at Harvard revolutionized modern football. He was a great organizer and a driver and unquestionably the N. A. C. W. S. will find him valuable in organizing and driving the very Important work connected with that arm ot the service. He will sojourn only for a brief time in Washington and will be over in France shortly, where so many of his one-time footbafl pupils are making touchdowns aim goals from the field in the vital ^ame against the Potsdam peril. Ot course. It was Impossible for him to continue as the chief executive of the Braves. His was accepted with resignation gret. Major Haughton has had a wide training In military matters. For years he was in the first coj-ps cadets of Boston and made a study of all tho military � duties ^connected with thn' energetic organization's work. Later he went to the Plattsburg military camp, even before Uncle Sam throw his hat Into the international ring. It Is well known among Haugh-ton's friends that he has been pining for a rhanco to get into the biggest game of all. He is and always has been an expert in the more red-bloodetl games of peace. Nothing fitter, then, than he take a hand in the grandest game that was ever presented to the world. He was made president of the Braves In December, 1915, shortly after Jim Gaffney sold the club. It Is almost too obvious to ^ay that the Braves, but for the war, now would have one of the best teams In eithe; leagues. Ofllcials of the club have absolutely nothing to say about the election of a PKJsldont to take the place vacated by Haughton. Those close to the workings of the team believe that Business Manager Walter E. Hapgood is directly in line for the position of chief executive, believing him to have had the necessary experience as well as the Innate ability. Pending the election of a president the chances are that "Hap" will carry the presidential duties with his present not very light obllgatloiis connected with the biggest ball park In tlie world.

'^THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" New York.-FootBall must bo re-storeo if college athletics are to be continued, says an authority in such matters. Every one who is well posted at ail on college'' sports Is aware of the fact that football is tlie "angel" of practically every other pastime on the inter-collegiate list. The colleges have tried for two years to run their athletic programs without featuring football and the result has been a dis- ( co'iraglng one financially. There are many who will argue that there should be no money consideration in college athletics-that sports should be run without the slightest attention to the money end of it. This is one idea of things, but unfortunately It is not a practical one. College sports can not be run without money, as every hard-headed alumnus who has been S O Sd for funds, is well aware. Athletic teams, no matter how Informal they may he, must bo equipped with apparatus oven though they go without the services ot a professional tutor. Equipment costs money. Take the experience ot the Cornell university track team last season, tor example. The Ithacans confined their activities to a very limited area last wiuter and spring, yet the fortnight before the nitercoileglate A. A._ A. championships found the treasury 'unable to stand the strain of sending c championship to Philadelphia. The students and alumni were appealed to with the result that the necessary several hundred riollars were subscribed from these sources and Cornell sent her team. to the game to win the championship. From the west comes the report that unless some new way ot raising money is found many ot the west-orn colleges will have to confine their athletic activities to the Inter-class contests next season.' The absence ot football Is felt In the west oven more than :n the oast, and the westerners are giving serious consideration to the plan of restoring football as an abso-luto necessity to the success of the athletic program mapped out for their students. fAR; COSTS A LOT Magnates Will Close Their Parks But it Will Take $700,-000 To Pay 1919 Bills Chiftigo. Aug. 2S.-No attempt will bo made to reopen tho American league parks next year. Even if It should bo possible to use players exempt in the next draft. President Johnson would bo sustained in his determination to keep the gates closed until the war is over. Johnson contends that the government doesn't favor professional baseball In any form and that an effort to keep tho sport alive under limited conditions would not meet with popular favor. , ' It Is pointed out that baseball was attracting the usual"patronage until Secretary Baker declared the sport "non-casentlal" whereupon the attendance figures began to decrease until at present many of the bal] parks afe practically empty, in short, Johnson has arrived at tho conclusion that baseball will amount to nothing unless tho government's attitude U changed, which is entirely out of the question. The National league, too, will suspend operations until peace Is restored. Costc Magnates Heavily. Although there will be no major league baseball next year, the magnates must keep on paying rent and debts. Tho former Federal league backers have claims i>r nearly 100,000 that must be settled In 1019. The owners ot tlio Giants will have to pay $80,000 for thn Polo Grounds in rent and taxes, together with overhead charges on the plant, Tho Brooklyn club has soino big notes to moot, aUn tho interest on several mortgages, Tho Phillies will bo required to pay a year's rent to Charles Webb IWurphy. The owners of the Red Sox, Braves, Browns and Cardinals also will be compelled to settle hcpvy obllgatiom?. All of the other clubs will be pursued by cold-blooded landlords. It is e'stlm-ated that within the next twelve months the big leagues will hand over nearly $700,000 to their creditors, with nothing coming In at the box offices. FRENCH TAKE CHAUINES ST, LOUIS SERIES IS OFF. St. Louis.-The .annual tall 'series between the two St. Loula major league teams will not be played this ypar, according to an announcement from Business iVlanager Robert Qu^Inn, ot the St. Louis Americans. Quinn said that under no condition would ho itsk tho members of the American league team to compete In any games after Septombor 2, the ofilcial closlug date (�f i'^.ifi major leagues. 8, irrespoctlvo of other casualties. The Welsh troops liolding this sector toll back u short distance before tho weight and numbers of tho attackers and took up a uqw position between Hlghwood uud Bazentln-Le-Grand. Not Sacrificing Lives London, Aug. 27.-(Canadian Press Dispatch from Rcutor's Limited).- Ueutcr's Tuesday evening report from HritLsli- headquarters in Franco reports that the enemy's artillery retaliation has been comparatively weak. Croisolles remains in German hands, and tho sunken roads north and west thereof are strongly hold by enemy iufantry. "Wo are following tho policy of not forcing the pace by the sacrifice of lives," the correspondent adds. Ueutor's correspondent states that tho woather Is gloomy, and the visibility for aircraft Is bad. GE (CoNTiNUBH rnoM Phont Paoi") OLLIES JAMES DEAD Washington, Aug. 28.-Senator Oilio M, James, ot Kentucky, died this morning at a hospl^l at Baltimore, where he has been 111 for some time. tumbled off tho lorria. The . driver looked behind at them trudging along in the mud. = i "This here lorry is laded with ammunition and when tho shellslbegln to tail those blokts got off in a hurry," he e.vplalned a trifle bitterly. "Maybe that lot was married men and If their number was up they wanted the missus should get a bit more of them than a trouser button, which is "about ail they would have had to show if tliu old hooker hit us.^ There is an Incident illustrating tho spirit ot the Canadian force. When they came into this deljatablo sector. Instead of issuing orders for the evacuation nt the civilian population the Canadian force issued orders tor the, disposition of the civilian population in the territories about to he recaptured. SMOKE Haster ^^1T5 GOODTOB&CCO two VjUVU lUUi tlie British struck at the hinge by attacking and breaking through from Qravelle and GroIssiUes. Tliat is why the Germans are mak Ing such a determined resistance and also why they are reacting so furious iy at the other end of the line be tween the Ailette and the Aisne. If the enemy cannot prevent General .Mangln from advancing toward the Solssons-Coucy road, the entire Seventh army on the Voale will bo put In.' Jeopardy. It is also essential iforhim to keep General .Mangln away from the Olse because If he should retire from Noyon to the HIndenburg line between Chaulnes and La Fore, ho would he obliged to march along tho Olse under the fire of the French guns or make a long dotour by way of Gulsoard. Accentuates Defeat Each day accentuates tho German defeat and adds to tho losses in men, material and prisonprs. Since July 18 the ftllleH have taken well over one hundred thousand prisoners. Tho guns captured have numbered more than one thousand and there also have been vast stores of ammunition. The British troops from August 8 to August 25, according to Marcel Hutin in the Echo De Paris alone took 40,-000 prisoners and 4G0 guns. The British casualties In the same period, he says, wore far less than the number of Germans they captured. Severe Fightlna There has been severe fighting In Delvlile Wood, where South Africans died in the first battle of the Sommo. About six o'clock yesterday afternoon a determined counter attack was launched by the remains ot the 117th German division, which Is known to have lost 2(500 prisoners since August THC RLii-K c�^^ roSACCCCO L na. j ^uu it Your Storage Battery Is the Heart of Your Automotiile!
