tanooga Southern Leaguers at Chat
The Cubs, who has-been, decorat
ing hotel corridors for the past five
days, at " the mercy of the weather'
man, were not called out for morning
practice and in. the afternoon spilled
a clever outlay of flashy plays. Pierce
was the hero of the day-. But for his
muff of a sizzling grounder in the
fifth, he would have held the Elber
feld gang hitless. Cotter was on the
receiving end for Pierce.
Charley Smith allowed four hits in
the final four innings of the affray.
Mike Heckinger stopped his slants.
The lone Chattanooga' tally came
in the sixth on a -walk, a wild peg
and a single.
The Cubs hadTio trouble solving
the slants of a young pitcher named
Starke. In the third and fifth innings
six hits netted a. quartet of runs.
Pierce scored the first Cub run.
In the .eighth inning a spitball ar
tist named'Ware took- Starke's place
on the slab and was touched for two
hits, which, with a wild pitch, gave
the Cubs the final'tally-of the game.
Ware is minus the first- joint of- the
first two fingers on his right hand
and his jumpy slants baffled the big
Of the Cub's nine hits, Mitchell and
Saier got two apiece and Clymer,
Schulte, Zimmerman, Evers and Col
ter one. Bridwell, Evers and Saier
pulled a neat double play. A small
crowd of fans watched the game. The

Sox' favor, and Acting Manager Lord
decided to give Smith, of Southern,
League fame a chance. His chance
was short lived however. The Angels'

Borton, White and Smith each landed
a one baser. Maggert, Los Angeles' ,
center fileder, slammed out, a homer,

Rumors say that Ernie Johnson
