Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta M'lflSDAY, SEPTEMBER THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Big Feature Photoplays CONCERT ORCHESTRA Real music by real musicians Mr. P. Murphy Irish Tenor TONIGHT RECORD BREAKERS Philadelphia, Sept. that fehe Philadelphia American league baseball team has clinched the cham- pionship of that organization, offrci- of the club arc making active pre- parations for the world's scries. The victory of the Athletics in the 'American league race gives Connie Mack 'his sixth championship, a new major league record. Under his guid- ance they won the league pennant in 1905, 1910, and .1013, ami in the latter three years they also captured the world's championship. The National Commission "will hold B meeting here next Wednesday to make final arrangements for the .World's scries, the first same of which will be played on either Octo- her 8 or 9. Whether lioston or Phila- delphia will obtain the first game would ho decided by the toss of a coin. WILL 'HOLD AMERICAN BALLOON RACE ANYWAY!

The contest was played in Cleve- i land's national iimphitheatro at Tirookside, part. At the same time only 5000 fans attended the Athletic-Nap contest at Somers park. Tellings' Strollers won the city championship. This Learn will play the St. Louis city champion team here on. October 3 and 1. Chicago, Sept. o! the "emery ball" or the sandpaper ba in the American League is prohibit- ed .in a ruling by President D. B. Johnson. Managers of clubs were notified that the first offenders will be sus- pended for thirty days and fined S100. In addition the game in which the lall is used will be cast out of the records, providing it is won by the :cam violating the rule. Certain pitchers in the league, it vas charged, rubhttl a small piece ol emery paper on the hall. The trick vlso made the pitching more effective t was said, as it gave the user rmer grip. How Trick Was Worked When Tommy Connolly, the Ameri- can League umpire, went to his Baisman Have Ceased to Fear Speed King of Washington Club that the'.Aero club of America would urging room after tha between to asked to sanctioa an American New York aml lihe Athletics at New jrmee. The-tentaUve date is October 7. Yarki Saturday of last week, he had in his possession two scarred base- balls and-one small piece of hlack paper. The balls had been used in the game, and the emery pa- per he had taken from the glove of Ray Keating, the New York pitcher. He promptly sent the "evidence" on Johnson to see what the pre- sident has'to say about the newest wrinkle in pitching equipment, the "emery" ball. Spectators at the game wore inter- ested in a k ck which Eddie Collins mails just before arid just after he, struck out in the first inning. They didn't know what it was all about when they saw Connolly and Collins look at the ball, and as soon as the hall Inning was over they saw Con- nolly stop Keating aud-ask for his glove. 1 Players of both teams gathered around Connolly ami Keating, heads j were together while Connolly exam- ined the glove and-then the game proceeded. Connolly had found the emery paper, about an inch square, in holIoweiHnit palm of the glove, and he confiscated it.

Answers can be made eith- er way, and there is room for argu- ment. The records for the season prove that the Johnson of this year and the Johnson of last are two different pitch- ers. Iti the last campaign he captur- ed 32 games for Griffith's Senators, and lost only sev-eu. He topped the league in average earned runs per ;amo with a mark of 1.09. With the present race less than three weeks from the finish lie shows a record of 22 wins and 17 defeats. Reserve Strength Lacking Johnson, is not the pitcher he was. Every batter in the American league will say he is easier to hit this year than last. Time and again he has shown the lack of reserve strength, 'which In the past invariably carried him across a had Inning. In other years he was known to Tan two or threa batters with two or three run- ners on bases. During the present race he has done this only occasionally. The following figures show Johnson's totals for last season, and his totals to date in. the present campaign: IP H JUG 230 315 240 13B SO WP 38 243 3 R2 1S5 12 1913....47 191-1___43 The figures tell a sad story. In fewer games Johusoii has been hit harder. Thirty more runs have been scored than went across last year. He has passed 24 more'batters, and, this is a big Item in the accounting. He has fanned 60 fewer batters aud cut loose four times as many wild heaves. Players Blame Griffith Any number of reasomj can-be ad- AT THE BUTTS N. T.

Players in the Ameri- can league insist that Griffith by try- ng to raake Johnson change his style las made him less effective. Such cases have been brought to light be- :ore, but Johnson probab'iy is the only na.n who knoys whether or. not his manager is to blame. One theory' is that batters are be. coming unafraid of the speed .demon. In the past it was considered wise to go up, take three swings and trust to luck that the.bat 'was in the path of the ball. Fear of being .beaned .by one of Walter's bullets kept the batters away from the plate. Now, as the story goes, the different clubs are dig- ging in, waiting for something over the .plate and cracking it. And, as Johnson depends principally on speed, the ball will and-far when bit squareiy. Sox Bombard Johnson Philadelphia and Chicago gave John- sou the most trouble this season. Bach club beat him four times, and was beaten twice. Each also fought him to a tie once. The Athletics only re- cently subjected Walter to one of the hardest bumpings of his career, when they knocked him off the Blab in three and one-third Innings on 12 hits and 8 runs.

TO BE NAMED THE OCEANIC White Star Decldso Against Germanic for New Liner Now York, N.Y., Sept. is un- derstood that the directors of the In- ternational Mercantile Marine Co. have decided to change tho namo of tho new liner, now under construction, at Belfast, from the Germanic to the Oceanic. Although tho old steamship Germanic was for many years a fav- orite with the trans-Atlantic travellers, n view of the feeling aroused in Groat Britain by the war, it Is considered In- advisable to have a steamer uudor the British flag called Germanic sailing out of Liverpool. The late Thomas H. Ismay, founder of the White Star line, name! his first steamship Oceanic. She was In ser- vice on the Pacific Ocean for many vears after she left tho Liverpool-New York service. He alBO had the second Oceanic constructed oil a most lavish scale, and it was his wish that there should always be a liner of that name I sailing under tile White Star flag. Tho recent loss of the second Oceanic of] the north coast of. Scotland gives the directors the opportunity to hand down the name and lame to the third liner. She Is expected to be launched In Belfast next March, She will be goss tonnage, with knots speed. In addition to carrying a number of lifeboats and two inotor-iaunches to tow them, she will have longitudinal bulkheads as well as those atirwartships, and will be as unsuitable as engineering skill cau make her.

Abbe Delebecque, formerly a pro- fessor In the College of Our Lady at Dunkirk, was summarily executed at Valenciennes on Friday morning. The A-bbe was returning on a bicycle to liis parish at Mainz after a mem- orial service for his father, who died a month ago. When arrested by a patrol of Uhlans he had no incrimin- ating documents, but he carried let- ters from French soldiers of -Dunkirk to their families. The'Abbe was tried at midnight by a court-martial composed of officers, who after a trial wiich was a mockery condemned him to be shot at daybreak as a spy. The priest was confided to the care of the German military chap- lain, and passed the night in praying in one of the waiting rooms of the sta- tion. A t 5 o'clock In the morning the Abbe, was placed in a motor car, and taken to the place of execution, on the outskirts ot Valenciennes. Oh the way h-3 Treated flying r.iid save a letter to his mother. Then he knelt in prayer for moment and soon fell lifelesi, pierc- ed by a dozen bullets.
