Notwithstanding the defeat,
there was a large ray of sunshine
for We,st Side fans, Mclntire
pitching a good game, and giving
' promise of some stellar perform
ances as the season grows. The
Kohinor Kid shone with greater
brilliancy than the scintillations
of his famed pieces of ice. For
nine innings he made the Reds
look like a bunch of Bloomer
Girls, and gave his teammates op
portunities to snag the game.
Five hits were all the Rhine

the tenth a pass and three singles
chased over the winning run with
only one out. The Reds might
have scored many more if they
needed them, but a single marker
was enough. Harry franked three,

he can continue the pace he set

regular turn on the slab.
