Wants Reasonable Time.
Cincinnati, O., July 20. August
Herrmann, chairman of, the national

statement today 'relative to the

"My judgment is that the two
major leagues should put the matter
up to the proper authorities at once
to find out whether we will be given
a reasonable time to adjust, and if
necessary, close out our business, or
whether we shall close at once.
"The players, without doubt, will
follow the order to a man, but, after
all, I believe they should be given
time to puttheir house in order and
to seek essential occupations. In my
opinion, no .action should be taken
until we know positively whether we
are to be given any time in which to
comply with the order or whether it
is the wish of the War department
that the men between the ages of 21
and 31 be called away from baseball

management of the liaers will be of'

Georgia Peach is very popular in De

nothing short of sensational. The

or, as they say, "Heinies."
Out near Chicago, and in it, for
that matter, has grown up the idea
that lightweight fighters are light in

looking for trouble. Fans of the ring
are asking themselves the question:
"Why are these lightweights backing
and filling when Sailor Freedman's
name is mentioned; and to tneir
question comes back an empty echo.
It's something like this on the sur
face, but what's underneath no one
knows. Sailor treedman, Bin by giv

training in the navy before this war
broke out, and during those three
years he's boxed about a bit. Now

match him, there's apparently no one
wants the honor, v .
Freedman has , been cleaning up
pretty strong, and perhaps that is the
reason. Harvey Throp said he was too
busy to meet the youth; Jimmy Han

their excuses. So it looks like a dull

Humor is not left entirely to the

it is the Dromoter. or manager, or
somebody who wears the glum looks

It's a serious business when a new

Charley Murray, who ran a few big

authority for that. He had a curtain

A MYSTERY WHICH
NONE CAN SOLVE
Started Reason in Great Style;
Now Not Even Pennant con
tenders; What's the
By JACK VEIOCK,
International News Sports Editor.
New York, July 20. The downfall
of the Cincinnati Reds is one of the
biggest mysteries of the base ball
Last April, as the teams lined up
for the start of the National league
pennant race, the Keds stood out as
one of the clubs that jooked sure of a
first division berth, and there were a
few writers who went so far as to
pick them as the pennant winners.
But the Keds today are not even
pennant contenders in the full mean
ing of the word, for they have , per
mitted other clubs to build up big
leads against their chances.
Matty had a ball club at the start
of the season that looked like a sure
winner. In Roush, Neale, Sherry and
Lee Magee, Chase, Wtngo, Groti.
Blackburne, Griffith, Toney, Schnei
der, Regan and a few others, the Old
Master had the nucleus ot wnat
looked like a hard-driving club, espe
cially with the bats and in the pitch
ing division, tor the nuriers men
tioned here are all three noted for a
capacity for work. Then came the
big pennant drive a slashing, bril
liant drive at the start for the Reds
and the slump that followed. No one
has offered a satisfying solution to
the predicament the Reds have got
ten into; and the problem remains
But in justice to the oustanding
players on the club, and to Matty
himself, it seems timely to say that
the Reds are a much better ball club
than their standing indicates. Their
plight is just another instance of a
good Ciuo going wrong.
One of the best things that could
possibly have happened to the Amer
ican league has been the rise of the
Washington club to a position of
prominence in the pennant race.
Clark Griffith's boys have been mak
ing themselves felt, and their play
ing has awakened Washington fans to
the point of genuine enthusiasm
over the Senators, a thing that has
not been shown for years.
Washington today is filled with war
workers whq will remain there for
the duration of the war. A generou
percentage of the war workers are

Drive is Short.
McCabe opend the big game wTih '
a drive characteristic of those that
followed. It fell short. His second
took him to the edge of the green. -A
long approach just missed. Reed
drove off nicely, made the green on
his second, took a long putt, missed
and sank it on his fourth.
The second and third holes were
halved. Reed's drive from the third
tee sent him to the edge of the trap.
McLabe s drive tell several feet be- -hind
and a brassie shot barely put him
over. Keed sent the ball on a trans
continental tour. Both missed the
hole." Reed sank his putt in five and
McCabe sank his in six. dropping one
more notch 'behind.
Reed had a piece of pure luck when
a weed on brink of the trap stopped
his ball. Dan encountered no trouble
on the first trap, but both balls sought ,
tne depths ot one around the green.
McCabe got revenge on the last hole
by taking the short end of the' 5-6
made on hole five. Reed's putt fell
short, allowing McCabe to annex the
Red's second shot on the seventh
fairway went out of bounds. Drop
ping a ball ' ehind his back he tried
again and placed the ball just outside
the green. A 15-foot putt just missed. '
McCabe tried two near putts and fail
ed. He lost this 585 foot hole. 7-6.
McCabe's third shot on the invasion
of the eighth green rolled up to the "
edge. Tbee puts were required to
make connections. Hearts of the
spectators missed a beat or two on
Reed's second putt i hen his ball hes- ' '
itated in the edge of the can, swayed '
and fell in. '
The ninth hole was halved in bogfy
ur. The tally card showed the "
former caddie was two down and had
compiled a total of 45 strokes. Reed
made bogey, 42.
McCabe Plays Better.
With only three long holes on the
way in, McCabe played better. He
lost two of the lenghy ones and halved
the third. The tenth hole was played
in par four by each. McCabe sunk "
his sphere on a long putt.
Reed's, long putt, on the eleventh .
green stopped one inch from the hole, C
One more shove and the hole was his
and the "boy wonder" seemed in for a ';
drubbing. t By making another nice c
putt on the twelfth green Reed took
the hole in one under par. This put
McCabe four under, but failed to take
the smile from his face although he
was visibly nervpu. . ;
Reed, like many another player on
the course, donated a' ball to the creek -near
the thirteenth hole. McCabe .
shot straight down the course and had '
r,o trouble. He erased one black '
mark against him by 'chalking up a
par four. ;i
McCabe was on the next green in
two. Both missed a putt and then t
halved the hole. ' - ?
McCabe should have made the "six- ...
teenth hole, but succumbed to its
tricky location and missed the greet
by several yards. A splendid ap- 'f.
