And with it he is figlitlng the spit ball. He has given up hopes of fighting the ahlne ball by appealing to President Ban Johnson of the American league and tho baseball lawmakers to aholifh it. He's fighting tho shine b,->ll with the shine ball. Ho proposes tiioreby to make baseball lite in the' American league so miserable that there'll be one overwhelming demand for its abolition, .such that Ban Johnson can't resist it. The climax of Griff's campaign is coming when hia Washington ball club nc-^t hits Chicago. "And when we get to Chicago we're going to load ourselv,es up with, paraf-!in. oil of tar, licorice, talcum and everything else that can bo used to shine tho ball." Griff announces. "We're going to outEhino tho fam-o"U3 shine artist.') of the White Sox- Cicotte and Danforth. We're going to nvake 'cm so sick ot it they'll holler murder. For using the shine ball is cbeal^lng pure and simple. It's unnatural and it isn't bagobaH. It's just the same uh It Jesse James came up to a player and held a gun in his face and ordered him not to make a base hit. "The Chicago White Sox cheated their way to one world pennant with tho shine ball and I don't propose to let them cheat their way to another. It they can cheat we cap, cheat, too, and we'll keep on doing' It till we drive that cheating out of the game and make it clean again. "I'll bet anything that the Chicago White Sox won't get four runs off our pitcher in the four games we play there. Every time they send in PA-die Cicoteo I'll shoot big Jim Shaw against them and you'll see just another gamo like tlie one in Washington a couple of weeks ago when Shaw beat Cicotte 1 to 0. "I didn't start to use the shine ball until the White Sox hit Washington this spring. But 1 told ray pitcher.s then and there that every one of them had to learn it and that they wouldn't receive a cent of pay until they did. "All it takes to aciiulro it is 10 minutes ot instruction. I did lay Sliaw off v,-ilhout pay for four days till he had It perfected. I liavo written Ban Johnson time and again telling him to quit slumbering on the Job while the shine hall la killing the game. "It's got to go." Griff says that even Walter .Tohnson has added the eliino ball to his repertoire, but isn't using It yet for tear the hall will take a bad hop ami kill somebody. "But lie'll use It In Chicago," adds Griff. � < LADY GOLFERS 0 COMPEIE ON 4IH /ive Prizes For First Competition-Results of Mon-.lay's Play Tho following are the draws and handicaps in tho Ladies' Competition, to be played on Thuradu.v, tho 4lh July, 1918. when all other mombers nf the club will note that the ladles have right of way.

For nerve and wonderful execution it was 318 FIFTH STREET "HOME. OF FASHION CRAFT CLOTHES AND THE FUOR8HEIV SHOE." STOUT MEN- Do you think you're hard to fit?

Uvady, one of the fine.Kt professional.s that ever swung on a hall in the New England district, got into a pock ot trouble when ho played the tweiftli hole In the third round of tho 1915 championship. Mike slicod his approach shot badly on this hole, tho ball going otr tho line and landing squarely behind a big'maple tree. It was a tough layout, especially in a modal play championship. The green certainly was not more than 300 yards away. Between tho maple and tho green was a guarding breastwork ot bunkers. And but a few yards directly behind tho big tree was .Mike's ball pretty well hidden In rough grass. It was about as moan a place as one could be. especially In a national Championship. Brady being ^ well up with the leaders at this time, i every shot made a world ot difference. The .New England pro. had tho option of pitching out safe to more favorable groumJ, taking a chance on a difficult anglo shot around tho tree ond over the protecting bunkers or lotting clear over tho tall maple. Brady studied the unusual Ho very closely. Finally, making up hi? mind,, bo walked over to tho � cadil e' �ml* picked out the heaviest and strongeet niblick In the bag. Ho was going to pitch over tho maple. I thought he was crazy to attempt such a daugerous shot in the, medal play compotltton whoro ovory stroke was so Important, Mike knew what ho wanted to do-and went and did it. Brady made a sensational recovery with his niblick. Cutting it well under the ball with a powerful wallop, ho sent Is almoat straight up in.tho air, safely over the big maple and with such remarkable dlfootlon and control that It landetl and stayed Tight on tho green nicely In poaltlbn tor a .short putt. It was a freak shot to be sure, but, Brady made It good. Out of a total of IT parlrtM In. Lot-blnloro County, Quo., nine did not register a ftlngle card for the national registration, according to official figures fiimlahed by Reglstrdr A. Plant, of ValloyflQld.
