. IN FIRST GAME
. American League Season
Opened in Two Cities; Walter
Johnson Ineffective; Baker
Drives in Three Runs.
Washington, April IS. The Amer
ican league base ball season opened
here today with a six to three vfctory
for the Xcw York Americans over
Washington, due larly to the in
effectiveness of Walter Johnson,
particularly against Frank Baker, who
lrove in three runs for the visitors.
President Wilson, who usually
throws out the first ball, was not able
'.o be present and District Commiss
oner Louis Brownlow acted in his
place. The only ceremony was the
raising of the American flag while a
band played "The Star Spangled
Ranner" and the players stood with
heads bared. The 10,000 spectators
listened attentively to a Liberty loan
orator and lated cheered, lustly when
a huge Caproni biplane flew over the
field dropping minature Liberty
. New York took the. lead in the
first "inning and was never headed,
' although in the fourth inning the
locals drove Morgridge from the
box. Russell stopped the rally.

Boston, April IS. Ruth held Phila

here today, Boston winning 7 to 1, in
. a none too cleanly played contest.
Conditions for the game were the
best this city has seen in ,years for
an opening contest, yet the attend

7,000. , - ,,-

by Boston from the Philidelphia
dub during the winter, made a favor-
Mclnnis' sole fielding chance at
third base, a new position for him
was a high foul which he caught
after a hard run. Strunk singled and
drew a base on balls, also making
catch in senter field which cut off at
least two Philadelphia runs.

The Washington club has released
Pitcher Adrian Lynch to Atlanta of

Griffith from a club in the Central
Association. He did not show much

You cannot overestimate the im
portance of keeping the blood free
of impurities. When you realize that
the heart is constantly pumping this
vital fluid to alt parts of the body,
you can easily see that any impurity
m the blood will cause serious com
plications. Any slight disorder or impurity
that creeps into the blood is a source
of danger, for every vital organ of
the body depends upon the blood sup
ply to properly perform its functions.
Many painful and dangerous dis

condition of the blood. Among the
most serious are Rheumatism, with

DR. J. C WOODWARD. 301

By FRED S. HUNTER.
MERELY by way of casual and
. neutral observation, it would ap
pear that Colonel J. C. Miller, the
ambitious anget from Oklahoma, who
proposes to stage a $100,000 fight just
for the fun he will get out of it, or
some of his comrades in the venture,
have been giving the steam caliope a
little too much freedom. Unless the
colonel brings the braying of his type
writer battery to an abrupt halt he is
likely to take" to the movies for his
Independence day entertainment.
Heavyweight championship prize
fights always arouse the ire of the
bulsheviki anyway and the impending
fracas is skating on especially thin ice.
In these wartime days it is the aim
to see that if there is to be any luring
of wealth of the unwary that it is
lured into the coffers of the govern
ment, the Red Cross or some other
war charity, and the prospect that a
couple of human man-eaters are to get
away with more than $100,000 of the
coin of the nation rests uneasily upon
the consciences of many good citizens.
Colonel Miller already has discovered
that his heavyweight toys will not be
permitted to light in several choice
locations and one outspoken governor
has been gone so far as to coyly sug
gest that the. belligerent ones .do their
belligerenting" over in France.
So if Colonel Miller does not want
his Fourth of July'entertainment to
be a total loss it would be advisable
for him to tie the tinware to the noise
brigade, or at least loft pedal the out
bursts about the coin that is to' be

A ginning to groom Eddie Mc
Goorty for the grand old -comeback
Eddie was a regular fighter in the old
days before he canoed across the big
pond to Australia and became the
Beau Brummel of George Street and
also had his features altered by the
late Les Darcy. Now Eddie has re
turned to Oshkosh and to. collect a
few of the American dollars Jess Wil
lard overlooks. His first opponent
was one Brennan. He won a signal
victory over Brennan and the experts
have pegged him for the great res
toration. ; r
All of wjiich no doubt is perfectly
right and proper except that Mr.
Brennan has been bounced against the
canvas almost as many times as Ter
rible Tom Cowler. So far as can be
learned the releree has disqualified
h"m every time he has started.
If Eddie can pull a comebacK oy
beating this Brennan bird, Battling
Nelson should, be able to win back
his lost championship by kicking
some sick child in the face.

were that German agents had boarded
