BE P11CHERS' BATTLE
"Smoky Joe" Wood andGroY
er Alexander Pitted Against
By George B. Holmes.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
New York, Oct. 2. The coming
world's series promises to evolve itself
into a pitchers' buttle from the very
start. On the one side, Alexander, on
the other, five of the best pitchers in
the American league Joe Wood, Dutch
Leonard, George Foster, Erne Shore and
There isn't much question but that
the Great Grover is a better chucker
than any of the five, but the trouble
is there isn't five of Grover. If there
was, there probably wouldn't be any
National league left.
. Bill Carrignn's prize quintet has won
in the neighborhood of 80 games for
him this year. Each will wind up the
season with a percentage hovering
around the .700 mark. The average
for the five will total over .700.
Against this crowd of winners, Irish
Pat Moran has to offer Alexandor.
Mayer, who has been a hard worker
this season not quite so successful as
the Boston flingcrs, but still good
enough to bo reckoned with; Dcmaree,
an in-and-outer who pitches world serieB
ball' one day and tall grass variety the
next; Rixcy, a .500 worker; Chalmers,
a veteran undoubtedly of worth, but
of doubtful success, and an Indian gent
by the name of Tincup who can scarcely
be counted on comprise the balance
of the staff. '
It is practically a certainty that
Moran will pitch Alexander . the first
game. Who to, shoot agninst him is
probably causing Bill Carrigan several
sleepless hours. "Smoky Joe" Wood,
the smoky one, if he's right, undoubt
edly would give the Great Grover a
battle from the word go, but Joe hasn't
been worked very hard of late. Some
said it was because Boston was hold
ing him in readiness for the big clash;
others contended that it was because
Wood was ailing that it was because
he never had fully recovered from the
illness that temporarily ended his me
teoric career after the 1912 world's
series. Probably Carrigan himself is
the only one who knows. Certainly,
fandom at large doesn't.
Granting that Alexander wins the
first game, and thereafter works every
other day, Boston's advantage in the
pitching department still is great. For
it is doubtful whether even Alexander,
as great as he is, can work every other
day and win his game. Not only would
the physicnl strain be terrific, but the
mental strain would be even greater.
In Leonard, Carrigan has one of the
best, if not the best left-handers in the
The odds are against Grover, and if
he wins out against the Carrigan clan,
even the lustre of the great Eube Wad
dell will be shared by the Quaker hurl-er.

Dead Heat -Other
Results of the Races
On a slow, muddy track yesterday's
races failed to draw the crowd that
jammed the grandstand on the prev
ious two days of the fair. Enthlusiasm
was not lacking, however, and the two
special races, the cowboy special race,
and the Shetland Derby, brought the
yelling crowd to its feet as the ponies
galloped under the wire. The first
race of the Shetland Derby was called
a dead heat by the judges and a sec
ond race was necessary as Ado, Firefly
and Happy could have been covered
with a single blanket as they flashed
past the judges stand.
The second heat was won by Firefly
with Ado second. The relay race was
the same close srtuggle of the previous
ilavs with Drumhellcr nosing out a
length ahead atthe finish.
The results follow:

Dolansky Had Friends
Among World Rulers
San Francisco, Oct. 2. After he had
bowled two women over, apparently
purposely, with his electric wheel chair
at the exposition today, a man giving
the name of J. C. Dolansky, was tak
en into custody for investigation.
"Why did you do Itf" ho was
"Oh, I only wanted to give them
an object lesson in safety first," said
Officials then thought Dolansky
would bear further investigation.
They found ho filed a 7000 word
message to President Wilson und had
paid for it in ' order to advise the
executive not to allow the allied loan
bonds to be sold in this country.
Dolansky was quite chummy with
presidents, it appeared, ho was head
ing, he said, for China to have a chat
with Yuan Shi Kui, Chinese presi
dent. The authorities believe he is loose
from an institution in Wisconsin. He
apparently had plenty of money which
is thought was willed to him by his
father. . -

Whilo Detroit is famed as the ce n,W
of the automobile industry, it Is perhaps
not so well known that for years this
city has held within its bounds the
largest factory in tho world devoted to
the manufacture of electric pleasure ve
hicles. This plan is thut of the Ander
son Klectrio Car company, builders of
the Detroit Klectrio.
In this plant covering II acres of
floor space are produced more thun one
third of all the standard electric pleas
ure cars built today.
Not only is this factory the largest of
its kind, but it is also the most com
.pjiki..gui)ipcd with .up-to-duta .nin
chineiy and devices for securing ac
curate aud rapid production. It com
pares favorably in equipment with any
gasoline car factory that can be named.
Large production has made it both
practical and wise to equip this factory
with the bcHt known facilities in auto
mobile building. From tho sturt the
Anderson Electric Car company were
firmly convinced that a car that is ac
tually manufactured is superior to a
car that is merely assembled. The de
velopment of the electric car industry
has proven this principle to be correct.
No doubt few people are aware of
the fact that most electric pleasure cars
today are assembled propositions. In
tlio en no of a small manufacturer there
is really no other alternative than to
assemble the curs because large invest
ment in machinery and factory equip
ment is of course unwise for the hiiiiiI!
For years the makers of parts for
gasolino curs liuvo centered their ef
forts in the direction of building these
parts efficiently and as eheuply hs thft
manufacturer of the complete cur, and
to u lurgo extent they havo succeeded.
However, no such efforts havo been ex
pended in tho electric car field. That
is to say no parts makers have been
working to standardize parts for rlec
trie pleasure cars. The natural result
is that tho builder of an assembled elec
tric is forced by circumstances to pin
chase many parts that were designed
and built primarily for use in gasoline
