sV Score, 8 to 0.
Wj- , Callahan's , men won in a can-
jUr-v ter, 'pickjngfr'five runs in the
ffirst game, and gathering three
v more at intervals in the game.
All this time the Naps, were idle,
due mainly to the great slabbing
of young JoeBenz, whawas-hav-
ing his first workout of the sea-
4 Benz has improved. He finish
p ed the tail end of last season on
I? the South Side, and while he was

The new captain whaled, out
three hits, stole three bases and
scored two runs.
Is Mclntire flashing?; was the

held Cincinnati to 5 hits, losing
the game because of poor sup
port. On the answer to that ques
tion depfends in a great measure
where the West Siders are "to
finish in the championship race.
