Overall May Be Used jn, .Trade;

, Cub's -Beat Kay' See:
The. acquisition of Overall by the
Cubs is still causing some healthy
discussion and is a live topic to start
the afternoon's lesson.
There is a general impression
among fans thai .Murphy has in view
a trade in which Overall will be used.
Joe Tinker in Cincinnati thinks a
whole lot of Overall's ability and is
willing to give some valuable ma
terial in return for the release of the
big Cub. And Tinker has some, men
that Murphy would be willing to com
mit murder to get. Rube Benton is
about ready to flash as one of the
Jbest left-handers in the business.
Packard. is another heaver" who will
make, good. -
If- the Cubs had Benton their
chances of winning the pennant
would be increased 15. per cent. Their
.hurling corps, already composed of
high-class right-handers, would be
rounded out by a southpaw who can
stand the gaff. Murphy must have
port-side heavers. Pierce is an un
certain quantity; though he has
shown some streaks of promise, and
Lefty Leifield is about through.
No teani in the country is better
provided with trading material which
it can afford to let go than the Cubs.

Phelan.and some of the young pitch
ers Murphy should be able toland a
first-rate flinger. With Overall' to
throw in, he can offer a tempting

Larry Cheney-'turned in a good'
game for the-Cubs . against Kansas
City yesterday, the best , part of his
performance being, the fact that he
traveled the full nine rounds at an
even pace, 'finishing strong.
Wildness'was the only thing that,
marred Cheney's "work. He passed :
four Blue batters in ten rounds, but
always tightened when the plate was
threatened. Six battersiwhiffed show
that Larry's spitter was breaking in
a baffling manner.
