BENDER'S" X-RAY EYES BEAT GIANTS By Tip Wright Chief Bender's, black eyes won the 1911 world's N series for the Athletics. The., Chippewa's keen vision penetrated the bulwarks of the Giants like an X-ray and shattered their defense. The Athletics should have won four straight games. The "break in the luck"- and Collins' momentary failure ;to think, threw away the first, and:an injury to Coombs lost the other. When I say the Athletics knew what almost every ball pitched was,' before it left the pitcher's hand whether a curve or V The Mack men " hit wickedly. They backed up the Giant outfield to. the fence to get balls that threatened to clear the barrier. In the sixth, when Collins doubled and Baker hit for his home run, the stand buzzed: "Collins tipped off Meyer's signal to Baker." So it seemed, "but it was not the solution. Three men did the tipping. They were Bender, Coombs and Hartzel. This day it was Bender and Hajrtzel. They didn't steal signals from Chief Meyers. They used th...

the straight drop and Matty's fadeaway. When batter and pitcher match wits the 'battle is pretty. The batter "takes a toe hold." He looks for a fast ball. If he gets it, good night! If he gets a curve, he is outguessed. The same applies when he is set for a curve and gets a fast balL The batter's advantage when he KNOWS what is coming is enormous. And the Athletics KNEW. Bender originated "calling the turn" from the coachep's box. He taught Coombs and Hartzel, both keen sighted. Between them they have broken many a "pitcher's heart. From first and third they, watch the pitcher's fingers grasp the ball. They can tell whether h,e will throw a curve or fast balj, as he winds up. A movement of the foot, hand or body informs the batter and he is ready. In the series Hartzel coached at first. Bender or Coombs was at third. Hartzel, arms folded, never moved save to turn his face toward the batter. The fingers of Bender's and Coombs' right hand did the work for them. When told they knew eve...

or RICHESON TALKS ABOUT .VIOLET EDMANDS, BUT -REFUSES TO MENTION NAME OF AVIS LINNELL Accused Pastor Breaks Down as Grand Jury Indictment Calling for Death Penalty Is Read to Him. By Stella Marquere. Boston, Nov. 1. Love came to her and found her fair, And wove a garland for her head. He wooed her with a rapturous song, Then kissed her lips and fled. Death came to her in somber robes ; He lingered she was not afraid. She took 'his hand and smiled on him; He kissed her lips and stayed. It was with this poeni on my lips that I went to the Charles street jail to see the Rev. Clarence Virgil Thompson Richeson. I wanted to see what manner of man this was who brought first love and then death to pretty, fair-haired, blue-eyed Avis Linnell. As I passed from the clean air into the musty-smelling, dingy jail building, I thought of the first time I had seen Avis Linnell. It was two summers ago. I was staying in the little Cape Cod fishing village of Hyannis. witlT a girl friend. On a glorious...

--mr w rtSC tWS wmmmmvm And just then a deputy sheriff came along- the corridor and stopped by my side at the cell door. "Richeson," he said, "it is my duty to read to you the five counts in an indictment returned by the grand jury charging you with the murder of Avis Linnell. The indictment charges murder in the first degree, the penalty for which is death in the electric chair. Riche'sonstaggered, and caught at the bars to support himself. His face worked convulsively for a moment or two, and then he seemed to steady himself with an effort. The deputy sheriff began reading-the indictment. As the reading went on in the dull monotone of the officer of the law, Richeson began to break 'down. To me, it almost seemed as if I could see the man begin to crumple up. Before the reading was finished, Richeson had staggered from the barred doorway to the cot, and sat with his head buried in his hands. I could hear'him sob, as I turned away from the door with the deputy sheriff. "That," said ...

' And it would never o to letthe crusade reach the owner of a' department store or prosperous proprietor of a successful factory for these folks had friends, money, position and pull. This is not true, however, of the members of the Chicago Vice Commission. Their unanimous report as fearlessly pillories the rich as it $ does the poor; and it does not falter at tracing the Social bvil and other forms of vice to economic conditions. The commission has as freely criticized the big department store or the influential owner of property in the levee, as it has the"" unfortunates of the underworld.
