A BASEBALL RECORD
- . ,Cy Morgan."
Was a time when Cy Morgan
"was a bloomer in the big leagues.
'In morning practice he looked
like a world-beater, but when
faqing dpponents he was nogooa'.
This was oefore Connie Mack
secured him from Boston, for
since he has been an Athletic,""
Morgan nas overcome his pitch
ing faults. .
An idea of the spit-bailer's abil
ity was given in the second game
this season, when he held Wash
ington to one lone hit, a scratch
by Moeller, that was notjiandled
as fast as it might have been by
the Athletic infield, or Morgan
would have had a no-hit game fo
his credit. It is believed Mor
gan's performance constitutes a
world's record. It is doubtful if
any, pitcher ever pitched a one
hit game so early in the season.
SHUSTER'S NEW JOB
Young Mr. W. Morgan Shus

it wasMnorally certain his serv
ices would be in demand some
where. "Uncle Sam will ind use
for him," was the common re
mark in Washington, last winter.
But Big Business beat him to it.
Shuster goes to South Ameri
ca to establish a great system of
branch banks which are expected
to drain a goodly share of the
prosperity of that continent into
Wall street. '
Say what you please about
Big Business, it knows a bright
man when it sees him. Perhaps
that is one reason it's so "big."
