TWO -IN BASEBALL
PLOT CASE FREED
Court Promises Acquittal to
Three More Tentatively.
CONNECTION NOT SHOWN
Louis and Ben Levi Released While
Buck Weaver, Happy Felsch and
j Cari Zork Are to Get Off.
i CHICAGO. July 27. The defense In
the baseball trial today In three hours
tore down the network of evidence
woven by the state In seven days
sufficiently to bring; immediate free
dom to two defendants, obtained a
tentative promise from the presiding
Judge of freedom for three others and
presented an alibi supported .by two
witnesses and numerous written rec
ords for a sixth of the 11 men on trial.
As a result of the defense's first
attack, Louis and Ben Levi of Koko
mo, Ind., legally were freed of any
connection with the deal through
which. It is alleged, Chicago White
Sox players agreed to throw the 1919
world series for $100,000.
To Buck Weaver and Happy Felsch,
once idols of the American league,
and Carl Zork of St. Louis acquittal
was promised by Judge Friend unless
further evidence is presented against
tnem, ana jjavid sselcer of Dea Moines,
la., presented an alibi through his
own testimony which was corrobo
rated by witnesses and documents in
troduced. Defense of Others Xext,
Tomorrow the defense will begin
trying to free Joe Jackson, Eddie Cl
cotte, Claude Williams, Chick Gandil
and Swede Risberg. First on tEe
schedule, however, will be a number
of witnesses from St. Louis to testify
for Zork, the defense wishing to make
his case as strong as possible.
Following him. Weaver. Felsch and
Risberg will testify, with Chick Gan
dil probably coming next. The de
fense does not expect to finish before
the middle of next week.
The state rested its case today after
Billy Maharg of Philadelphia gave tes
timony corroborating that previously
riven by Bill Burns, the admitted ac
complice. The defense then presented motions
Tor dismissal of the charges against
the Levis, Zork. Felsch, Weaver,
Zelcer and Joe Jackson. The state
promptly dropped the cases against
the Levis, but refused to take similar
action for the others, holding that
they might be further incriminated
through defense testimony, but ad
mitting the case against them now is
Visit la Recalled.
Zelcer. identified by Maharg and
Burns, testified that he was in Chi
cago September 28, leaving that night
for Cincinnati and arriving there
September 2, the day Bill Burns had
testified he had conferred with hira
in New York over the alleged con
spiracy. Returning to Chicago after
the two Cincinnati games, Zelcer said
he was confined to his hotel here
three days through illness.
His testimony was confirmed by a
witness who went to a ball game
here with him September 28 and then
traveled to Cincinnati with him. A
hotel bookkeeper here testified Zelcer
paid his'blll September 28 and left
town, returning later. The hotel rec
ords were admitted as evidence, as
were later bills, showing he had paid
the hotel for drugs and medical serv
ice the days he sid he was sick.
Others Also Registered.
The state obtained an admission
from Zelcer that he had registered
himself. Abe Attell and the two Levis
at the Sinton hotel, Cincinnati, Sep
tember 30, presenting the register as
evidence. Zelcer explained he had
been moved to another room that
day and had volunteered to take in
Attell when the latter could' not ob
tain a room. He presented a tele
trrara from the Sinton received today
stating he had registered there Sep
tember 29, and that the register
showing this would be sent here if
"I dont know Maharg or Burns
or any of the defendant ball players
and never saw Maharg or Burns until
iney testuiea. zelcer testified. "I
have known Attell for years, but did I
jiot know anything of this alleged
world series deal, and Maharg and
Burns have made a big mistake in
saying I am the man they knew as
The testimony presented against
IWeaver and Felsch included only the
statement of Burns that he saw them
In a room in Cincinnati with other
players who were said to have been
in the alleged conspiracy. This testi
mony was counteracted by his state
ment under cross-examination that he
was not sure Weaver and Felsch were
Plot Connection Not Shown.
. Harry Hedmon of St. Louis who
Said Zork told him he was "the little
red head from St. Louis who started
the deal," was the only man who has
testified against Zork. Judge Friend
lield that this did not connect Zork
eufflciently with the original con
spiracy which the state's own wit
nesses testified was abandoned after
the second game, Zork's statement be
ing alleged to have been made after
the fourth game and coming up in a
conversation about the possibility of
the games being thrown.
The evidence against Louis Levi
was that he bet against Cincinnati
and Ben Levi was never mentioned in
Weaver and Felsch were the hap
piest persons in the court building
when Informed of Judge Friend's
statements. Tonight both were re
ceiving scores of congratulatory tele
grams and telephone messages. '
Weaver said he wanted to get back
Into major league baseball, but Felsch
was not so sure.
White Box Job Not Wanted.
"If Judge Friend takes that attitude
there can't be any doubt in any man's
mind about my innocence," said
Weaver. ."I'm sure that no one will
try to keep me out of baseball after
that. I don't want to play with the
White Sox any more for 1 don't want
to work for Mr. Comiskey. I'd like to
be traded preferably to New York
or Cleveland and play the outfield,
my original position."
"If you play the outfield, then Til
play the Infield, broke in Felsch.

The Vernon Tigers paid another
tribute to Portland's highly esteemed
reputation as a health resort yester
day. After he had the game well in
hand the Tiger chief gave several
of his hardest hitters the hook so
they could enjoy the rest cure. Bill
says a trip to Portland is as good as
a vacation for his hired men.
Anyway, the game was about- the
goofiest spectacle seen on the home
lot this season, which is some achieve
ment. The final score was 17 to 7
for Vernon. After Essick had put in
an entire substitute outfield so Sam
Hyatt. Chet Chadbourne and Stumy

pitcher used by the Beavers, big Elli

lad, finally managed to cut off the

lasted less than three full innings.
Then Coleman replaced him, in turn
being replaced by Gilbert, a left
hander. Gilbert walked one batter
before giving way to Queslnberry,
who, in turn, was relieved by Ellison.
No need of going further into the
gory details except to say that in the
third the Tigers sent 11 men to bat
and batted clear around in the fifth.

Survey X'ecessary to Avoid Snags

BY NORMAN ROSS.
World Champion Swimmer.
With swlmminfr becoming more pop
ular every year, the number of drown
ings is naturally on the increase also.
The Red Cross Lifesaving society is
doing great work in continually ex
tending its humanitarian activities,
trying to keep up with the need for
knowledge in the art of taking care
of oneself in the water. Its instruc
tion in lifesaving methods is free to
everyone who can swim. Anyone
wearing the Red Cross emblem on his
suit has passed the tests and will give
Information as to where the tests can
We have the welfare of the novice
and the good swimmer alike at heart,
and for this reason have drawn up a
number of suggestions and precau
tions for swimmers. If one is an ex
pert, it will do no harm to review
these matters: if he is a beginner he
should read and observe carefully.
For self-assurance and safety in the
water, the first essential is to learn to
swim. Naturally, it is better to learn
right at first, under 'a competent in
structor. The average swimmer is a
poor swimmer himself and makes a
poorer instructor. Go to a man who
lakes a business of just that.
After having learned, there are cer
tain precautions which every swim
mer should observe. It is extremely
Inadvisable to enter the water Imme
diately after eating; a wait of at least
two hours is necessary. Hurrying to
the beach and plunging into the cool
water has resulted fatally many
times, and always works harm.
Do not continue swimming when
exhausted; stop and rest, by floating
or treading water. If you swim well
do not misjudge your distance when
swimming out into deep water. Re
member it is always much longer
back than it was out.

Jump in feet first, and examine for
depth and to see that there are no
snags, or stones, or broken-off pilings
which may injure you
In wading in, never hold the arms
above the head. Keep the hands
the water so that you will be able to
stroke if you step off into a hole.
Never wave your arms around over
head to attract attention should you
be in distress. Their weight out of
water'will be sure to sink you.
It is a very easy thing to obtain
mastery of your actions in the water.
The body only weighs a few pounds
when nearly submerged; and the only
trick is to learn to move the hands
and feet slightly to support the part
of the body which is out of water.
Self-confidence and calmness is all
that is necessary. Once you become
expert a new world, of enjoyment
opens up before you.
Swimming is such an easy matter if
one will only keep cool and avoid any
hurried action which will tend to
cause his head ,to go under, such as
throwing the arms out of water and
trying to keep the whole body in the
air. Left to itself the average body
will float, and only a small motion,
using the hands as paddles, is neces
sary to keep the mouth and nose out
of the briny.
For instance, do not struggle if
caught in at swift current or a so
called undertow. The force of the
current will soon bring you to the
surface, for there can be no current

when there was no wolf. When there
was one nobody came to his assist'
ance. Besides, 4n some states it is un
lawful to call for help in fun, and is
punishable by fine and imprisonment.
If you are a reasonably good swim
mer, learn the lifesaving methods, by
all means. Every swimmer should
familiarize himself with the methods
of release in water, various holds for
towing a person in distress to shore,
and methods of resuscitation- As it is
now most people would be unable to
save themselves if they were sud
denly cast into the water, let alone
rescue anyone else. Any Y. M. C. A.
will give the test, and anyone around
the beach with a Red Cross emblem on
his swimming suit will give informa
tion on the subject.
Ludy Langer and Stubby Kruger re

race, defeating teams of' four men
each. There were nearly 100 girls en

Ethelda Bleibtrey, competing in her

Dave Shade and his father, Charleu
Shade, left for Vancouver, B. C yes
terday to meet Billy Shade, who Is
slated to step off the steamer from
Australia Saturday, after a year's so
journ on that continent, during which
time he won every fistic title from the
welterweight to the heavyweight of
the island continent.
Billy and his manager, John Gill
feather, left Vancouver for Australia
almost a year ago. Shade had been
rated as a good, tough, rugged boy
with a punch, but little did the box
ing followers on the Pacific coast
dream that he would develop Into a .
contender for world's championship
honors in such a short time. He
broke in with a bang at the Sydney
arena, scoring a knockout in his first
fight. He won the welterweight
championship of Australia in his sec
ond start and from then on did not
stop. But two of his fights went the
limit and he won all but one. Shade
lost one bout on an accidental foul,
but knocked the same opponent out
in a few rounds a month or so later.
Shade, at his weight and far above
it. took on every boxer of prominence
in Australia. His last bout for the
heavyweight title ended in the fourth
round when Billy knocked out Charles
Lloyd. Shade twice beat Jimmy-Clab-by,
the American, and other equally
well-known scrappers. When Billy
invaded Australia he tipped the beam
around 152 pounds. He is now said to
strip a good 175 pounds when in the
best of condition. All reports from
Australia credit him as being one of
tne greatest lighters that ever drew
on a glove in that country and a lot
of wonderful mittmen have performed
on Australian soil. It is likely that
Shade will remain on the coast but a
week or so. as he is signed to fight
in New York in September. He has
challenged Tommy Gibbons, Georges
Carpentier and Harry Greb. and if he
gets over them will demand a match
with Jack Dempsey.
Billy Shade is a terrific puncher and
an exceptionally clever boxer, a com
bination which, goes to make cham
pions. And, best of all. he can take
a lacing to give punishment.
George Shade, the third member of
the fighting Shade family, is expected
to make a trip north within the next
week. He is now boxing in Los An

appeal to the boys. Frankie gave

Ortega will not be an Edmundson

but he feels equal to the occasion and
