Ever ana anon, If not oftener, we

because we haven't answered certain
queries or replied to letters. Wo aro
forced to admit the blighting- impeach
ment, and with a feeling somewhat
akin to shame. Every query should bo

But in somo way wo nover seem to
catch up or wo lose the letters or

On the other hand, as has been said

Dear Sir Can you please tell a
young fan who plays some baseball
also about how many chances big
league ball players accept before they
make an error on an average? I mean
about how many put-outs and assists
will they have to each error and oblige,
A SCHOOLBOY PAN.
At first glance nothing1 could sound
simpler. And being anxious to oblige
I'll start In to answer at once by say
ing, "Ahout one error to every" and
then you suddenly pull up. About one
error to every what? Offhand you
might say about one error to every
ten chances, for a guess. But It might
be one to eight or one to seventeen,
And not desiring to indulge Jn any
false steer or Inaugurate nny Inaccuracy,-
there Is one of two things to do

Into the sandy-soiled dope to round up

We deeldetj to try out Number Two
by way of variety. And the only way to
respond to the simple query above was
to gather Jn the records and discover
how many put-outs, assists and errors
had been made In the 2500 big league
games played last fall.

Tho total chances accepted, therefore,
were 49,633. And against this thero

tho Information that In tho National
Leaguo 23.1 chances nro accepted before
the earnest athlete, on an average, blows
one or introduces the well-known boot.
To extend tho Idea, thero were 51,156
chances accepted In tho American
League against 2148 mlsplays which
gives tho A. L. an average of 23.8
chances accepted against one fizzle or
muff. AH of which Is direct proof of
tho great skill employed by tho profes
sion at large, as the acceptance of 23

A Mild Prediction
Ted Meredith, the Pcnnsy star,
The headlines do assert, will run,
Now that they'i'c taken down the bar
But that's xohat Ted has always done.
It you havo doubts, eo ask tho men
who havo fought to pass him tho last
fow years. They will tell you that as
a general rulo when T. Meredith gets
into a raco it la a good bet to say he
will run and then some.
There is no doubt, we'll make a bet,
That politicians wish
Although we do not need one vat
To found a fight commish.
And when they shall have founded it,
(Oh, cease those maudlin sobs)
Wo have no doubt don't take a fit
They'll founder it with jobs.
Since we don't need it, why havo ono?.
Jack McGuigan Is probably right about
tho 10-round idea. Six-round lights
mean action, and they havo been such
a success in Philadelphia that other
cities have followed suit. Let that

And viciously the horsehide stung,
