THE DAILY HERALD Friday, July BEATEN OUT FOR GUP Y.M.CA PLAYS MAROONS AT 6.45 DISTRiaiEAGpRSPUTUP POOR GAME OF FOOTBALL Initial Encounter Marred by Indifference of Players and Referee About Turning Up Rangers Beat Rovers Clad In the noted Callie outfit, tbc Rangers defeated the Rovers by 1 to zero in the first District League Foot ball game of the season, at the Ath- letic Park, last evening. The Rov crs had the Overseas checkered shirts on, and they put up about as good a game as a .team belonging to the sweaters Unit they had on, could have. It was said that the teams would he picked from the various teams of the City Football league. They cer- tainly were, but it was also said that they did. not think that the best play- ers from, the teams were picked. The Same was very ragged from begin- ning to end. One of the reasons that It was' so. was because the player's from the Sons of England team that were supposed to play did not turn up, and men were put on-the field that knew.hardly anything about the game. Although It was a league game they did not play the full forty-five. min- utes, but only- stayed with it for ab- out thirty-five minutes each way The official" referee did not even turn up, and'.the first half of the game was in charge of S. he got tired and Simm-took the second spasm. Being two poor teams it was not as bad as if one good, team had Seen opposing a poor team. The line up was as follows 'Mclntyre: backs, Bannerman and Boston; half-backs. Glen, Brennan and Hutton; .forwards, -Moore, Thompson, Parker, Cox'.and McJIurlle. W-anless: -backs, Home and McKay: Mullen and Brennan forwards, Flenv Ing, Crawford, Patterson, Rea and Day. The Rangers got the kick off and a great deal of end to end playing followed, which did not. amount to much. Bannerman.stopped one of tbese rushes, and if. he had'not done so, a score for the Rovers would have been the result. Patterson followed In his footsteps, anil came'very uear crossing the line with.the the noted Callie goalkeeper punched It out.of danger. "Kid "Thompson 'got in the firing line, and came pretty.close to making one tell, hut the globe hit the top of the goalpost only resulted -in. a goal kick for the other ream. This was quickly followed by Craw- ford nnd himself who worked tlie corn I binalion act together, and went up the field nearly as close as the ques- tion line. The main feature of the first half was the many offsides which took place, 'but the referee did not take the time or trouble to call them up for doing so. Fleming worked hard in this part of the game, and he had to take a rest in the second spasm, but all his hard work did not give the team for -which he was working a goal. Tile first goal was put through -by Moore, but it did not count as Craw- ford was offside, and the tired referee saw it and called him up. Freddie Simm. of the Westminster team; who was playing, for the made many attempts- to score, throughout the entire game, but was never able to locate the. spot. The first half ended after McKay had .stopped Crawford from trying to the-books tallied nothing to zero. Centre-and end-playing comprised the greater par.t of the second spasm, as the would-be players were, .very much fatlgued.'as also ware the on- lookers. Fleming made a wild at- tempt tho line with the slobe but his eye and ills toe were not in line, and he made a miss. ;Horne, the noted Westminster full back, was there on several occasions TVith the goods that tell, and stopped tile other team from scoring. Ye old warhorse, MoMurtle. was among those that made attempts, to score, but like 'ill the rest was un- successful On one instance he nas met Tock McKav, nho told him, where-to gel off, and lie took the warning ind him the ball. It was a ver> simple Ihlng for the Ranger's full back Brennan to make a sbore, but it was more of an acci- dent than of merit. He cqme running .down the field, and at the centre line kicked the toll into the ajr In-the 'direction of the Rovers goal, .while the goalkeeper was busy talking, to one of his numerous friends and-not seeing the ball it rolled into the nets before he actually knew what had hap pened. This ended the, game, with .the ball near the Rangers' goal. The Famous Ottawa Crew NEVER AGAIN Mordecai Brown of the Chicago Cuba solemnly swears he will hot be put of the game and suspended again this year. He has too long and hon- orable a career in the national game to 'start being a rowdy now. "Face" the Facts Play fair game with youraelf.

AFTERMATH OF RACE YESTERDAY Henley-on-Thatnes, July rejoices over Ottawa's victory. For the last five years such a race never created sp much interest in the row ing world. The Canadians never showed their form at practices, and the great heat prevailing lead ex- pens to believe that the Belgians would win. However, in the race Ot- tawa held the Belgians closely till half a mile Irom home. when .they spurted and the Belgians could, not raspoiirtto it. That killed the Bel: giah stroke, and the Canadians romp- ed home In an lew ith the crew they say that the.-race at the on them, but they felt fit and the spurt, gave them' courage. When they reached their boathouse the Fielding was the first to welcome and congratulate them.

Detroit "hiladelphii Chicago York Boston Cleveland Washington St. Louis AUSTIN OUGHT TO STEAL 100 BASES, SAYS COLLINS Here is what Eddie Collins has to say about Jimmy Austin, whom tlie Yankees traded to St. Louis: "If I were as fast as Jimmy Austin, I don't believe I'd ever.stop running until I crossed the plate. There is no ques- tion about his being, faster than Cobh and I, hut Jimmy, has never develop- ed the art of getting a big lead. That is where Cobb and I have the better of 'him. He also slides head first most of the time, .which is not nearly so successful in stealing bases as the feet-first plunge. If Austin ever learns these two tricks he ought to steal 100 bases in a season, for he has the speed.' CHAMPION'S GLORIOUS 4TO Champion, Iul> 4 of the larg est.

Cub Outfielder Draws More' to First Moit Sheckard, the Cub outfielder, is pro bably the best waiter in the National league. Pitchers'will admit this. The fact .that been given 37 bases on frails in 45 games fUone bears out the statement.. In the last 14 games played 'by the-Cubs he went to the first on passes in every contest hut three..'In those) battles he drew 1C 'bases on.balls, and obtained 12 hits besides' His ability to combine hits with the passes accounts (or his ting average of .382. That Shcckard's ability to get on1 first .base -has 'been of great value to the club is proved by the number of runs he has counted. He is.the CUDS' leading run getter by a wide margin, and also heads the National league. He has come close to scor- ing one run a game. He lacks only five tallies. In Hie 47 games-he has registered 42 points. His hitting has not been for naught." Sixteen runs have crossed. the plate as a' re- sult of his raps. Fifty-two hits arc credited to him. Of this total Ifi have 'been two four for three bases, and two for'home runs. BRANDON JUST SLIPPED IT OVEft' ESKIMO TRIBE 4 8 Jersey City -Newark EASTERN 010 001 300 100 Brandon.
