New York.-Billiard followers have taken action to actively support the "work or fight" order issued by General Crowder. The National Billiard Protective association has started the campaign. It issued to the roomkeep-ers a pertinent request to "keep all able-bodied Idlers out of your room." The officers of the association stated emphatically that the organization -was about to help win the war and to co-operate with the government in every way. It was pointed out that amateur and professional billiard players had joined he colors-Lieutenant Nathan Hall, former national amateur champion; the Appleby brothers, and Lewler-brothers, room-keepers ol Brooklyn, were among the number- Because some billiard rooms are lounging places for idlers who might better be loading shells or shooting them at the enemy, the association started its campaign of agitation. They have had printed large signs to be ,hung in the patriotic rooms throughout the country. The signs read: "The management of this room restricts its purpose and use to workers who desire recreation and exercise. Able-bodied idlers are undesirable and are requested to keep out.'

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" .;. .1. > :..;. .;. .> .> .;. .;. ? '> : WORLD'S SERIES DOPE. ? ? ? .;..J .^ .^ �: ? ? Granting that the Cubs and the Red Sox meet in a world's series, it will be rather odd, for though both Boston and Chicago have flown pennants by wholesale, yet is so happened tliat never before has a Chicago team taken a banner when a Boston club in the other league was also victorious. Not the curious fashion in which these two pennant winning towns have been kept from flshtlug each other. 1903-Boston won in the American league, but Pittsburg was tha National victor, 1900-Both Chicago teams were the champions. 1907-Chicago won in the National, but Detroit took the American flag. 190S-Same as in 1907. 1910-The Cubs won while the Athletics triumphed in tiio American. 1912-Boston won in the American, New York in the National. 1314-The Boston Braves triumphed, but faced the Athletics in the big series. 1915-Boston Red Sox won, and met Philadelphia. 1910-Rod Sox won again, and battled Brooklyn. 1917-Chicago White Sox won and met the Giant.s. There have been 14 world's series since the two leagues made peaco and either a Chicago or a Boston club has figured in ten out of the 14-yet the two towns never sent their stura against each other. GRIMES, ROBINS, P'TCHER^HASHAD EXCELLENT YEAR Last Year He Had Series of Reverses But Is An Ace This Year � Life for Burleigh Grimes last year was one defeat after another, but this .vcar, what a difference! The Robins' pitching ace is proving himself to bo almost unbeatable. In fact the right bander has been unbeatable since the afternoon of July IS. On that day the Robins, after losing their last nine games, opened a series in Chicago. Grimes was selected to twirl and he was opposed by Jim Vaughn. It looked as though the Robins' string of defeats were going to be stretched to ten. But Grimes proved too much for the league leaders. After battling sixteen rounds the Robins were returned the winners by a count of 3 to 2. That victory launched Burleigh on his present winning streak, and last Monday in Cincinnati Grimes hung up his ninth straight win and thereby estab-ilshed a season's record. There have been no flukes about Burleigh's nine victories in a row either, as he started and llnished every game, but hfithas acted in the role of relief hurldf in one contest. He went to the mound after � game was hopelessly lost; .by. a mate, but he has not had to be removed from the box in any of the games he has started. Burleigh has defeated the Cubs, Pirates, Reds and Phillies each twice and the Cardinals once so far during the winning spurt. He has shut out the pirates, his old teammates, twice and the Phillies once. In the nine games ten runs have been scored against him and he has been nicked for forty-five hits. This is an average of a fraction more than one run per game and five hits a contest. Pitching Feats. The Robins' pitching ace has accomplished several wonderful twirling feats during the streak of vie-toriea. Perhaps the greatest was his work which started him on hia winning way. During the first nine innings of the game Grimes held the Cubs to three hits and would have scored a h"hutout victory had not his mates made two errors In the second frame which enabled the Cubs to score twice. In the fourteenth inning Grimes was in a deep hole and it appeared almost certain that the Cubs were going to score the winning run before a man had been retired, Hollocher, the first man I ; face Grimes in that inning, drew II pasH. Mann was safe when Olson fumbled an easy grounder and when Merkle bunted to Grimes the pitcher fumbled the ball and the bases were filled with none out. The fans were moving toward the exits. Burleigh then look the situation in hand and forced Paskort to raise an easy pop fiy to Olson for the first out. Deal fouled to O'Mara and things looked brighter for the Robins. Barber batted for Zeider and forced' Merklo at second and the Cubs were held run-less. In another game at Ebbets field against the Phillios Grimes prevented Pat Moran's men from scoring after they had filled the bases with none out. It is situations like that which finds Griraoa at hi.s best, and he generally succeeds in puUing out of holes with colors flying. WILL BE IN NEW DRAFIAGEINU.S. Very Little Chance of Baseball Ne.\t Season Under Such Conditions How many active ball players would bo left for use on the diamond If the now draft ago provisions advocated by the war -department are approved and put into effect, with the law read-, ing that all men who have not reached their 46th birthday by a certain date (say September 6) shall register, be classified and either inducted into the army or placed at some essential war work? "Mighty few," would be the average fans' answer, and he probably would add: "I guoss Bobby Wallace and Nay Lajoio and a few more like them would be exempt." Wrong. If the figures of a baseball record keeper are correct as to ages of the athletes, there is absolutely not one player out of the hundreds who have been seen in active service on the diamond this past season. In majors and minors, who would bo above the draft age. A Detroit baseball writer, who is old enough himself to know better, says Norman Elborfield would be the only "active" player ox etnpt, but as a matter of tact 'ho famous "Kid" was born In 1S76, which makes him 42 years young. Elberfleld Just Seems Old. Elberfield, from his length of service in baseball, would seem to be on the shady side of 50, but the Kid started playing when ho was about 17 years old-and he still was playing, now and then, when the Southern league suason closed in June. Had the writer who picked Elbcr-feld as the only active player above the new draft age cared to dig a little Into the dope he could have discovered that the oldest active player in point of years as well as lengtii of service, is right In the majors to-day. He is Bobby Wallace, who plays the InfieW and does it well, now and then for the St. Louis Cardinals. Wallace was born In November of 1874, so that even he is of draft age under the new law that Is expected to be In force bo fore ho reaches his 44th birthday. \^s for length of service, he was playing professional ball in 1893 when Bber-fold was still a scml-pro on the lots of Cincinnati, Honor Belongs to McClnnlty Actually the oldest ball player who did any active service this season, so far as the records disclose, was Joe McGinnlty, the veteran pitcher, ^ho twirled a few games in the Pacific Coast International league. Joe was bom in March of 1873, and is thijB a year and a half older than Wallace, but even he is In the new draft ago. McGinnlty started his professional career the same year that Wallace broko in. Going to the other extreme, the youngest player in the major leagues -there may have been a tew younger in the minors-Is Clifton' Heathcote, outfielder on the same Cardinal team with which Wallace plays. Heathcoto has passed his 10th birthday, so he Is of draft age under the now regulations. ' Thus Uncle Sam gels them'coming and going, and it's no use to figure on baseball for next year If the new draft law is passed, as it undoubtedly will be.

Greater Resistance The French third army met with greater resistance today along tho line of the Somnio and tho Canal Dii Nord. Tho German' opposition was particularly stout n tho region' of Ncslo, vvhero it was necessary to have artillery reduce some positions. Tonight the villages of Rouy-Lc-Grand and ,Rouy-Le-Petit, onat of Nosle, arc In the hands of tho French while south along the canal they have Breuil. Jfoyencourt and La Paiino-tiere. North of Nesle, where General Humbert's troops also are approaching the Somrac, tho Germans launched a counter attack against Morchain without success. The Germans appear to bo strongly reinforced by artillery along the Canal Du Nord where their resistance is atitfening.
