When Schulte and Saler Are Hitting
There Is Much Hope.
When Schulte and Vic Saier are
swinging their bats with effect then
the-Cubs are mighty liable to win.
And when these two men, located In
a very important section of the bat- ' t

is something else again.
However, Frank and Vic ARE hit
ting and they are landing on the
horsehide when the land counts.
Vic was the big feature in the Cub's
double win on Labor Day. Frank
helped him out with pome safe swats.
And then yesterday the slim left
fielder's swat in the tenth inning sent
over the winning tally. That's the
sort of stuff that brings home the
bacon. And the Cubs have got to
keep bringing home said bacon to
keep in the running.
Incidentally, O'Day's squad is very
much within hitting distance of the
top notch in the National League.
