October 7, 1913
Interest in the World Series game at New York furnished by the United Press through the Mail Tribune reached fever heat locally this morning, and a crowd of 200 stood around in the rain to listen to the returns. The crowd was with the Giants, and cheered instantly whenever the Big Town scored a run. However, the Mackmen were not without their supporters.
Considerable wampum was wagered on the Giants by the same crowd that always backed them against the Athletics, and generally lost. The chief mourners today were Edgar Hafer, Boby Brevard, "Dad" Beveridge, Judge Colvig and Dave Woods. The major part of the rejoicing was let loose by Judges Tou Velle, Kelly and Withington.
Towns and cities adjacent to Medford also showed interest in the game and telephoned in for news regarding the games.
The second game of the series will be played tomorrow at Philadelphia, and the returns of the second contest will be received and given by the Mail Tribune, beginning at 11 o'clock.
