WHITE SOX CLEAN
UP INHOME YARD
Win Thirty-Two sof 1 Forty
Four Games With Eastern
Clubs Played at Comis
' key Park. ",;
VOne big reason why the Chicago
White Sox are out in the front of
the American league pennant parade
s that the eastern clubs have been
jable to. make very little impression
on . the pale hosed warriors of Clar
ence Rowland in the games at Com
iskey park. Of the forty-four games
played by the teams from the eastern
half of the circuit at Chicago the
White Sox won ho less than thirty
two, this performance showing what
a powerful club Rowland has when it
is playing on the home lot. With such
big advantage in games won at
home it is not surprising that ; the
Sox can go along breaking even on
the road, and still be in first place. . '
Washington . has made the poorest
showing of the eastern clubs at
Comiskey park. Griffith's team can
make the going difficult for the White
Sox when they visit the capital, but
in Chicago the Sox have a habit of
walking rough shod over the Sena
tors. Just once this season has the
Washington team .scored a victory
in Chicago and against this lone tri
umph Jthe White Sox 'rolled up ten
victories.'1 " .;': :
The Yankees have done just a little
tetter but not enough to do ' any
cheering about. ;, Three games made
tip the Yankee's winning portion this
season at Chicago and the White Sox
carried "off the honors eight times.
Even the world's champion Red Sox
have nbt made what can be called a
creditable showing on the home
grounds of their rivals,' the series
standing seven games to four in favor
of ! the , Chicago club. The Athletics
were able to do as well as the Red
Sox and better than the other eastern
Clubs. - .. ...'"... . r . - ...is , .

NOTRE DAME COACH
STARTS WORK EARLY
Harper Arrives ; on Scene to
Pind'Thirty-Three of Last
Year's Athletes Serv .
- ingin Army. '
Athletic Director' Jesse C. Harper
arrived at Notre Dame fresh and
ready for work after a two months'
stay on his ranch in western Kansas.
But Coach Harper is as mentally de
jected as physically fit for handling
the foot ball team for the fall 'cam
paign. The first day he recapitulated
his athletic material he found that
twenty-three' now are commissioned
officers in the. national army and at
least ten others have joined some
branch of the service.
.Tile coach is further worried bv the
demoralized schedule. The army
game, vjhich for four years has been
the big eastern attraction for Notre
Dame, is off following the suspension
of athletics at West Point. To fur
ther complicate matters. Haroer-re
ceived word of the cancelation of
the first game ol the season, "-scheduled
with Ripon college.
Green Team to Meet Badgers.
Ordinarily this would not mean so
much, but Notre Dame has only one
other game booked, and that with
Kalamazoo college, before meeting
Wisconsin, at Madison, in the first
game Notre Dame has ptlayed with,
a conference university in many years.
Ripon's cancelation means that Har
per's4 green team will have played
only sixty minutes of real foot ball
hefore going against the team that
promises to be the, strongest mate
rial in the "Big Ten."
Players known that will be on hand
at the beginning of the season are
far and few between. "Big Frank"
Rydzewski, the giant Chicagoan, who
has been the greatest center Notre
Dame ever had during the last two
seasons, will in all likelihood put in
an appearance. The only other reg
ular that Harper banks on is Jack
Meagher, diminutive end from Elgin,
who made a fine showing against Oli
phant in the West Point game a year
Players with Some Experience.
Ronchetti. Madigan, jGipp, Stine,
McGuire and Andrews are other men
with 6ome experience who will put
in an appearance.

Benny Leonard has earned $64,000
in the last year in the ring. When, ;
1916 burst upon the calendar Benny .
Leonard was just beginning to blos
som forth as a champidnship possi
bility. Since that time he has won,
tne lightweight title from Freddie
Welsh and, incidentally, has collected
a small fortune. .
Many a big business cannot show
gross receipts of $64,000 for one year,'
It serves to prove how a champion
ship can be commercialized as an "at
traction." Leonard has never .de manded
big guarantees, except in his
one big bout since winning the cham
pionship, when he knocked out John,
ny Kilbane at Philadelphia. Fori
that fight Leonard was guaranteed
$10,000, with a privilege of taking a
percentage of the gate receipts. The
receipts amounted to more than the :
ten thousand. He took $11,694 for .
that bout. Kilbane received the same
amotlnt. - Vt
That was the biggest purse Leonard ?
has received. Incidentally, it was the
largest purse that has ever been paid
for a six-round no-decision botijL r
Born on East Side.
Benny Leonard was born in the
lower east side, in New York on April '"
7, 1896, and began, boxing profes
sionally in January, 1912. It is fig-
ured that since he first earned any-
thing in the ring he has gathered -close
to $100,000 in purses.
When he knocked 6ut,( or rathet".
stopped, which is a technical knock-V
out, Freddy Welsh in nine rounds in y
the Manhattan Athletic club Leonard
received $3,854. Welsh had been of
fered $15,000 for a championship bout-,
with Leonard. Promoters in the west,
where twenty-round bouts to decis-J
ions are permissable, offered the thehk
champion of the lightweight division
that much, win, lose or draw, but.
Freddy was obdurate. He was con;
tent to go along fighting ten-round
bouts with no decisions. Few thought
when he signed articles to box Leon-"
ard that the Harlem boxer would
strip the Englishman of his light
weight crown. But he did. .
Since that time Leonard has lived .
up to several contracts for bouts in
which he has not received as much
as other champions. . It proved to th
public that Leonard was willing to
risk his title, even though he was not
getting big money for doing so. But ,
when the name of Johnny Kilbane
was mentioned, Leonard insisted upon
being guaranteed $10,000. At thatt
tim6 Kilbane was regarded as one
of the; leading contenders for the
lightweight championship. Leonard
figured that he -should be paid ac
cordingly. Kilbane figured likewise,
although the featherweight king had
everything to win and nothing to lose.
The result of that bout' is now his-:
tory. Leonard outclassed Kilbane'
from the start and eventually stopped
him in the third round, when Jimmy
Dunn, Kilbane's manager, threw, in a
towel, signifying defeat. , '
