Clark Griffith's team failed at the box office during 1917, for the great army of workers at the capital had no time to patron- i Ize baseball during week days and ' the dyed-in-the-wool regulars who could get away to attend the games throughout the season were fewer than in other years when this country was at peace witti the rest of the �world. There was talk of moving the Washlngtoa club to some other city, and It j3 known from authoritative ources that such a mov� was discussed on aeveial occasions. Finally, B�n Johnson came out with a flat denial that such a move had been seriously thought of and derided the Idea of taking baaeball away from the national capital. Amend Old Blue Laws. Sunday baseball in Washington will bo watched with great interest by najor leaKue club owners" throughout Jie east tnla sieason, for the sentiment of the baseball public is known to be strong for the amendment of blue laws -which prevail throughout the astern states. New York fans would welcome Snn-tay ball, as would the fans of,Brooklyn. Philadelphia and Boston, and the club owners are living in hope of seeing the bars lifted by the time another rtason rolls around. ,, Baseball men contend that there is no radical sentiment among the mass-,�8 of fans against Sunday ball, and they ar� predicting that the time is not far off when the baseball fan -n-ho can not enjoy week day games will ha permitted to see Sunday games in (lU of the big league citleB. : li 1 Cleveland .....000 100 000- 1 a Oj Shaw, Avers and Ainsmith; Morton | and Thomas.

Won 19 Straight and Pitched in 21 and 22 Inning Games. Rube Marfjuard, who Is v;ith the Robins, is the proud owner of three National league pitching records. As a member of the Giants in 1912. Richard gained 19 consecutive victories he-fore being halted by Jiuiinie Lavi-iiJfir and the Chicago Cubs. This wonderful feat of the southpaw matclied the record for consecutive viclories made by Tim Keefe, also of the Giants, in issy. In 1914, at Forbes field in Pittsburg Martjuard matched his skill and speed against that of Babe Adams for 21 Innings. Uje Giants winning. 3 to 1, when Joe Kelly, playing center field, misjudged Larry Doyle'o home run drive with Bob Bescher perched on first. This was the longest game ever played In the .National league until the 22-inning struggle between the Pirates and Robins at ISbhets field last year. Cor 20 innings Marquard sat on tlie bench during the game. But In the Itoblns half of the 20th Larry Cheney who had relieved Leon Cudore early in the game, hurt his back gliding into second and was forced to retire from the game. .Marquard replaced Ulm and in the 32nd inninl? Hickman won the game for the Robins by stealing home, while Jake Pltler, the recruit second baseman, held the ball [n ilia hands. The Rubo pitched only two Innings, but ho got credit for winning tlie gigantic struggle. Thus the southpaw is the joint owner, with Tim Keefe, of a record for conHOCutive victories, of tho longest game twirled in full and won by any .National loagun pitclier. And he has the honor of winning the longest game overpliiyed in ilie old orGanization, New York.-Rube Oldring. persuaded to come out of retirement by Connie Mack.this season, is the only player on the .Mackian roster who was actively engaged in the pennant-wincing campaign of 1914, when tho Athletics won their last American league streamer. Gone aie the stars of the old White i'lephaut machine which rolled through the .American league, winning four pennants in five years, and in their places are players upon whom Mack i.s depending to regain the laurels of his once famous club. Tiie once famous infield of the old .\Iackmen, composed of Baker, ^arry. Collins and .\tclnnid, has'been replaced by Burns, Gardner, Shannon and Du-gan. Baker is with the Yanks, Collins with the White Sox, Mclunis with Boston and Barry in the navy. The old Athletic outfield has faded away completely. Strunk has been .sent to the Red Sox and Oldrjng has been used as f pinch hitter tor the most part since coming back to the club, while Murphy has passed out of tlie limelight, as have Davis, Walsh aud Daley. Bender, Bush, Coombs, Plank, Pen-nock, Shawkey. Wyckoff and Bressler were the mainstays of Mack's pitching staff only four year.^ ago, and not one of them is wearing a. Philadelphia uniform. Bender is helping Uncle Sam build ships at Hog Island. Bush is with the Red Sox, Coombs with Brooklyn, Bressler with the Reds, Plank retired and Pennock, Shawkey, and Wyckoff in the service. Lapp, Schang and Thomas, catchers, have also passed along. Schang being'the only one still classed as a titar. McAvoy, who was with ,the club in 1914, was h fourth string catcher at the time and is now doing half the backstopplng tor the rejuvenated club. Gardner, Walker and Cady. from Boston; Jamieaon from Washington; Burns from Detroit and Gregg and Kopp from the International league, have stepped into the shoes loft vacant by Mack's many deals within two years. In short, the Athletics are per fectly camouflaged. : : : ; ; � > : : GAONSeORO WINS OERPV. ? Kpsoni, June 4.-Tho Derby ? Stakes of �,i700 sovf!r(!ign: ? by GainHbori).
