Cubs Better Balanced The Cubs are a' better balanced and more experienced club than the Ath lerics. Their outfield is as good as their infield. In catching they so far outclass their American league rivals that there is no comparison. In the box it is possible that the Athletics may answer a Cole with a Coombs, s Pfiester with a Plank, a Brown with a Bender and a Reulbach with a Morgan. But that leaves out of the cauculations- one man who, on world's series prece- dent, has gi- gantic Overall.

The Athletics have the benefit of Connie Mack on the bench, a factor to be counted upon, _The Athletics-are younger men and as a team have more speed than the Cxibs. The Athletics can rely upon tie sacrifice hit because they have pitchers .competent to win with, a .one or two-run lead. The base running of the two teams- is about even, despite general belief in the Cubs" su- periority.
