Ilt;CROWD CHEERS RUTHThe roar of welcome that greeted his appearance as a pinch hitter and the thunders of acclaim that attended his , crossing the rubber with that decisive lun proved unmistakably that there is still but one Babe Ruth in fandom.Yesterday’s contest, the initial clash of what is bound to be one of the most important series of the year, was a close and thrilling battle. In Uiis contest was staged the dangerous assault of Tris Speaker and Smoky Joe Wood, ! two former Boston favorites; the baffling delivery of Coumbe, also a Bostonplayer in days gone by; the determinedand successful rally of the Sox andfinally the remarkable tightening up ofJoe Bush, who seemed destined to defeat at the start.For the first three innings yesterday it looked as though the Sox would be ; forced to pay the penalty for working Joe Bush too frequently. When the Indians got away to a three-run lead with ft clever southpaw opposing it looked 1 good-by to Boston’s hopes of putting the Indians back; but when the Sox through the determined and tlmeTy hit-Ung of Whiteman, Shean and Mclnnls showed a disposition to fight for the verdict Bush settled down and was practically unhittable till the end.
