SMITH OF DODGERS
SCULPS INDIANS, 2-1
Brooklyn Ace Holds Rivals in
Palm of Hand.
MAILS COMES TO RESCUE
Caldwell Has Nothing but Deliber
ation and Loses Game in
Very First Inning.
NEW JORK, Oct. 7. S'nerrod Smith,
Brooklyn's southpaw hurling ace,
pitched himself into a place in the
world's series hall of fame today
when he held Cleveland helpless in
the third game of the super-pennant
struggle, the National leaguers win
ning. 2 to 1. Smith, who might aptly
be termed the "stormy petrel" of base
ball from the fact that his connection
with the Kobins is the 13th since his
debut on the professional diamond,
found this circumstance neither a hoo
doo nor a handicap. Any jinx hover
ing around the twirler from Mans
field, Ua., found lodgment in the ball
which baffied the desperate efforts of
the Indian clubs wingers throughout.
Smith, whose hurling easily won
him a place among the stars of base
ball, was supported by his team-mates
in a manner which fully equaled the
best exhibition of fielding in similar
conflicts since the national commis
sion assumed jurisdiction over the au
tumnal struggle. The Isuperbao backed
up their pitcher like the secondary
defense of an all-American football
team and it was almost impossible for
the Cleveland batters to get a drive
through the various combinations
which shifted with lightning speed
from place to place wherever the ball
Cleveland Giela .1 Hits.
Three hits only were made off the
winning hurler, and of thene Catcher
O'Neill gathered in two and Manager
Speaker made his hit, a double, in
the fourth: O'Neill tallied a single in
the fifth and another in the eighth"
Had Zack Wheat played Speaker's
double safely, Smith would have been
credited with a world's series shut
out. Of the 28 Indians who faced the
Kobins star left-hander, only five
reached first, three arriving on hits
and two on passes. Speaker scored
on an error, two were left on bases
and O'Neill was once the victim of a
double play, and Jamieson, who ran
for him in the eighth ining. met a
similar fate. Smith hurled 109 balls
to the visitors, of which 29 strikes,
41 balls, 8 foul strikes, five fouls,
five field outs and 18 ground outs.
Brooklyn Wins in First.
Brooklyn, while never free from
the fear of a Cleveland rally, batted
Its way to victory in the first inning,
as it eventually proved by falling
upon the puny offerings of Ray Cald
well, as soon as he took the mound.
What Manager Speaker saw in Cald
well's curves when the latter warmed
tip will always be a mystery. Cer
tainly the lanky former Yankee had
nothing but deliberation after he en
tered the box. Of this he had plenty
and to spare. A base on balls, an er
ror and two hits netted the Superbas
the two runs that won the game be
fore Speaker could wigwag Ray away
and replace him by Duster Mails, who,
while not as effective as Smith, was
not an easy proposition, and backed
up by some splendid fielding, prevent
ed any further scoring.
In many respects the game meas
ured up to the very best contest seen
in any world series in years. Old
time players and followers were
unanimous in this opinion. The en
tire contest, although marred by two
errors evenly divided, fairly scintil
lated with brilliant individual and
combination defensive plays, which
brought the thousands of spectators
to their feet repeatedly.
Ftature Playa Are Many.
It was the first contest to be
played in real baseball weather and
the fans showed the effects of the
more suitable setting. Not a cloud
obscured the sun and only a lazy
breeze disturbed the Indian summer
haze. The overcoats which the spec
tators wrapped tightly around them
selves during the first two games
were discarded. Occasional pur
chasers of peanut and ginger pop
added a true baseball touch to the
picture. There was, however, little
change in the collective attitude of
the fans, so far as rooting was con
cerned. Speaker was given the great
est applause of any individual player.
The outbursts of applause which
greeted the rapidly succeeding feats
of first one and then the other team
were spontaneous and impartial,
partisanship, except in a few indi
vidual cases, was noticeably absent.
It may have been due to the fact
that the thrilling plays came so rap
idly that the Brooklyn fans never
had time to set themselves for a
genuine outburst of concerted and
home team rooting.
Wood's Rubbed or Double.
The baseball fireworks opened In
the second inning when Rightf ielder
Griffith made a great running catch
off Joe Wood's bat that robbed the
Cleveland outfielder of a sure double.
A moment later Konetchy knocked
down Sewell's blazing slash and re
tired him at first with a snap throw
to Smith. Both players were required
to doff their caps repeatedly as they
came to the bench.
In the third Konetchy and Kilduff
figured in another star play. O'Neill's
tmash fairly tore its way through the
bands of the Robins' f irst-sacker. but
the ball was deflected by Konetchy's
effort to stop it and shot off toward
Kilduff. who scooped it UP and flung
it back to Smith, who had rushed
over to cover th-e bag.
Again, in the fifth session, the
Brooklyn infield figured in a fast
double, play. Olson knocked down
Mails' wicked drive, and recovering
his balance with an effort, tossed the
ball to Ktlduff. forcing O'Neill at sec
iond, whereupon Kilduff whirled and
nailed Mails at first.
Indians Stop Robin Rally.
Speaker's players let themselves out
under this incentive in the sixth,
when two feats in handling the ball
aroused the crowd to frenzy. Wheat
lined a booming foul fly along the
right-field line and Burns chased the
descending sphere clear to the grand
stand, where he brought up with a
slam against the iron railing, but
not until he reached in among the
spectators occupying a front-row box
and, with his gloved hand, speared
the ball almost in the lap of a woman
fan. Myers then singled to left, but
when Konetchy hammered a red-hot
hopper to Wambsganss, a lightning
double play, Wambsganss to Sewell
to Burns, checked what appeared to
be another run-getting rally. Other
p'ays of almost equal brilliancy
marked the progress of the battle,
but these were the outstanding de
fensive features of a contest which
will always rank well to the fore in
the annals of 'the world's series
The outcome of the third game In
bo way appeared to affect the con
fidence of Manager Speaker In the
ability of his players to win out In
the coming battles, which switch to
Speaker Is Confident.
"We will win the series," was the
confident comment of Speaker as he
left the field. He declared Brook
lyn's victory, or rather Cleveland's
defeat, was due to better team work
in the field by Brooklyn.
"The Brooklyn players were up on
their toes and certainly played great
baseball," he said, "while our men in
the field did not do so well today."
Speaker praised the work of Short
stop Sewell, who only recently came
into the major leagues, and predicted
that "some day that boy is going to
be- one of the best."
Manager Robinson of Brooklyn de
clared that his opinion on the final
result was still the saroe as It was
before the first contest was played.
"Just as I thought tw'o days ago,"
said Robinson, "the series will be
very close. The clubs are very evenly
matched, but I think we have the
edge on Cleveland in pitchers."
Robinson Praises Nerve.
"The thing needed in a world's
series." he -cid. "is nerve, and our
boys certainly have plenty of it. Both
teams are trying their best to win
and their efforts should stop all talk
of baseball scandal."
It may have been a lucky thing for
Brooklyn that Manager Speaker at
the last moment decided to start Ray
Caldwell In the box, for it was while
Ray was on the mound that Manager
Robinson's boys got their runs. Ivy
Olso.i, Brooklyn shortstop, who has
proved the most consistent player of
e-ther team in , reaching first, his
record for the three games ' being
ight out of 12. drew a pass in
Brooklyn's half of the first. J. Johns
ton promptly sacrificed him to second
and he advanced to third when
Sewell fumbled Griffith's grounder.
Olson completed the circuit on Wheat's
hit to left and Griffith went to the
midway. From that point the right
fielder scored when Myers hit to short
Speaker Stops Shntont.
Speaker, with the unintentional aid
of Wheat, saved his team- from a
shutout. In the fourth the Cleveland
leader hit down the third baseline.
The smacih was ordinarily good for
two bases, but Wheat let the ball go
through him and it rolled to the far
corner of the lot. Speaker continued
around the bases and scored so easily
that Wheat made no effort to throw
the ball home.
The pitching analysis of the Cleve
land boxmen showed that nearly hilf
of the 20 bails thrown by Caldwell in
the one-third inning he performed
were wide of the plate. Three went
as strikes, four as foul strikes and
two were grounders, one of which was
fumbled. The other two were hits
that sent in the two runs for Brook
lyn. Mails pitched creditably in his
6 2-3 innings. Although his ball total
of 98 was almost equal to that of
Smith for nine innings, he held Brook
lyn to three hits and no runs. He
sent across 19 strikes and received
credit for 14 on fouls. Four fouls
came after the "second strike. The
Cleveland left-hander started well,
throwing seven balls in the fractional
inning and eight in the second. Af
ter that his total was ever less than
11 and in the seventh he pitched 23
times, 12 of which were wide of the
plate. Uhle, in his one inning, had
three balls, three strikes, three foul
strikes and two plain fouls.
Eight Brooklyn men went out on
flies ana 10 on grounders, not includ
ing the ball Sewell erred on. The
ball total for the three Indian twirlers
was BO and the strike total half that
number. Brooklyn fouled off 21 of
ferings for strikes.
The almost summerlike weather
brought out the largest attendance of
the aeries to date. According to the
official figures of the national com
mission, 25.088 spectators paid ad
mission. Their collective contribu
tion to the box office was $81,298.
This made the total receipts for the
first three games ?236,511, or which
the national commission received
$23,651.10: the players' pool $127
715.94; and the clubowners $85,143.96.
CLEVELAND BATTING SLUMPS
O'Neill Leads With Wheat In Sec
ond Series Place.
NEW TORK, Oct. 7. The team bat
ting averages of the heavy hitting
Cleveland American champions for
the three games of the world's ser
ies dwindled today to .165 when the
Indians could do little with Smith's
puzzling curves. Brooklyn had been
going slightly under .200 for the first
two contests and improved this today
to .209. .
O'Neill of the Indians stands out
as the series star thus tar. with
five hits in ten times at bat, includ
ing two doubles. He Is followed by
Wheat of Brooklyn, who batted out
three singles and two doubles in
11 times up. The Brooklyn outfield

the field with only one man gone In
the first inning through a pass to Ol
son with singles by Wheat and Myers.
Sewell's fumble that put Tom Grif
fith In position to score was largely
responsible for the winning run. Hav
ing collected these two important tal
lies. Smith and his hustling mates
then settled down with the tidy idea
in mind of suppressing any hostile
sortie for the rest of the game. As
the result of this logical idea, won-
erfully worked out, the Dodgers left
tonight for a four' days' stand in
Cleveland leading the series by two
games to one. No wonder the big
rowd warmed up and at times rose
upon its hind legs to cheer on home
alent- The Dodgers deserved it all.
On one occasion Tommy Griffith de-
troyed an imminent double by scoop-
ng & line hit off the sod while mov
ing under such terrific headway that
e came near leaving the ground.
If you desire further samples of
Brooklyn's fine defensive play, here is
ne for the book:
In the third Inning O'Xeill led off
with a smash- to right. The ball
ounded off Koney's kneecap and car
med toward the outfield. At this
moment the alert Kilduff, by a re
markable sprint, intercepted the blow
and tossed the ball to Smith, who had
ircled first. Only a remarkable co-
rdination of alertness and team play
n the part of Kilduff and Smith
could have turned out such a play. It
was full and complete evidence that
Brooklyn's trained defense was on top
of the job at every turn, taking noth-
ng for granted. And these two were
only a few of the many features that
thawed out the stolid aspect of the
populace and brought renowned zip
back to the crowded stands.
The slugging Indians batted .303
hrough the American League strug
gle, but they are now finding few
gaps in this Brooklyn defense. They
scored a run in the fourth inning of
he first game. That run happens to
be the last one they have earned
ince, although 23 innings have passed
by. In these last 23 innings against
the pitching of Mamaux. Cadore.
Grimes and Smith the western attack
has scored but one. and that was due
o an outfield slip and was in no way
earned or deserved.
37 Chances Errorless.
Before the series started we figured
that Brooklyn's pitching would give
Cleveland a world of trouble. But it
has be';n something more than pitch-
ng. yuite a bit more, for in addi
tion the Dodger infield and outfield
has swarmed all over the scenery in
ts zealous pursuit of lusty drives that
were soon smothered to death. Brook
lyn's infield has stood the shock
without a quiver. The record of 37
accepted cirances yesterday without a
bobble testifies to this. Koney alone
carried away 19 chances where the
old boy never looked better. Eighteen
of these chao5es were assists, and
when an infield grinds out 18 assists
without blowing one you can put it
down to sheer merit.
What might have happened If
Speaker had started Dusty Mails in
place of Ray Caldwell will never be
known. Caldwell wajs shaky from the
jump, lasting only a third of the first
round. Malls, a big left-hander,
stepped in with two on and but one
oui and from thatmoment the Brook
lyn attack was through. Mails was
trifle wild, but in his seven innings he
allowed but three scattered singles.
Gamble Kails to Work,
Mails was the expected choice be
fore the game, but Speaker evidently
thought it wiser to gamble on Cald
well's experience. The gamble didn't
work. Caldwell was skidding badly
while Mails was unhittable, whether
In or out of the well-known pinches.
Whether the Dodgers of the species
would have been deadlier than the
Mails If Dusty had opened the pro
gramme is another matter. Baseball
Is as full of "ifs'" as a desert is full
"It Malls had only started," wailed
the Cleveland rooters, who began to
head in the general direction of Lake
Erie. But Mails didn't. And that i
quite a bit more important than any
ifs. With three games played,
Brooklyn now faces the trying or
deal of four consecutive battles upon
hostile sod, with Stanley Coveleskie
poised and ready to dash back into
the thick of the plot
But your Uncle Wllbert Robinson's
cheerful young men start west with
carload full of confidence. They
have found their best pitchers fully
as effective as the early dope indi
cated they would be. with something
to spare. And they have found so
far that Sewell. trying gamely and
giving his best, is having a hard time
of it around short, one of the most
vital spots In a defensive machine
. Collegian Has Trouble.
The young Alabama collegian got
away to a fine start on Tuesday, but
he hasn't fared so well since." It is
hardly to be expected that a young
ster with five weeks' experience un
der the big tent is going to pick up
where Ray Chapman left off.
Brooklyn's outfield In a hitting way
has more than held Its own with
Cleveland, and unless Coveleskie can
even up trie count on Saturday the
Indians will be in a highly groggy
For all that, the Cleveland club is
too powerful an organization to be
underrated after a brace of defeats.
It came ' back after slipping in the
American league race, and it may
come back now at any moment with
another rally. But Speaker' is up
against the highly annoying proposi
tion of facing better pitching day by
day, and better pitching is no light
advantage to overcome. So far in the
three games Cleveland has only
earned two runs, and unless her at
tack can brace up quickly it requires
no fancy prophecy to outline the as
pects of the final result.

said to have received as much as a dollar a word.
But you can write one word into your Fall Budget which

For this is the McElwain principle :
To buy the hides direct from the producers of hides ; to
tan them in McElwain tanneries ; to make each separate
part of the shoe in a separate factory; and by making
shoes for the millions to make them better for Jess.
And on this principle the McElwain business has become
the largest of its type in the world.

even knowing the McElwain name. Today the discovery
is easy for the name "McSIwaln" is stamped on the sole.
