Packey McFarland failed to show
up yesterday, so there was nothing
doing in signing for a match between
the former stockyards, man and Mike
Gibbons. Gibbons came all the way
here from St. Paul in response to a
telegram from Emil Thiry, McFar
land's manager, and was somewhat
peeved when Packey failed to appear.
McFarland remained in Joliet, in
terested in some political affair. He
asserted he would be in Chicago at 5
o'clock tomorrow afternoon to close
negotiations. Gibbons will remain
here, as Mike has his dander up and
he wants to make his fellow-Irishman
come across with a proper forfeit.
Getting McFarland to sign up for
an important bout is always a major
task and the ex-lightweight's tempo
rary retirement doesn't seem to have
improved him in this respect.
Chick Evans broke the 18-hole
record for the San Francisco Golf

Mr. Bresnahah is not conducting a
troop of quitters. Any team which
can finish the fourth inning five runs
behind, play to the support of uncer
tain pitching and whale out a muscu
lar victory deserves credit for deter
mination and spirit such as has been
strangely absent from Cub teams of
the last two or three seasons.
There are several angles to the re
vamped Cubs which are work of con
sideration. One of the principal
changes seems to be in Heinie Zim
merman, the well known Krupp gun.
In the past it has appeared that Zim '
fought earnestly to get put out of the
game and placed under the cooling
shower. But this spring the gestic
ulating German seems to be fighting
just as strenuously to stay in the bat
An instance of this occurred in the
final St. Louis game, when Zim
arched the ball in the general direc
tion of first base between innings, the
ball hitting Umpire Eason. Zim had
just enjoyed a slight argument with ,
Mai, and Umpire Quigley, back of the
plate, thought Zim deliberately aimed
at his partner. In justice to Zim it '
should be said that "Quigley was ap
parently wrong, as Saier was asleep m
for a moment and did not see the ball. "
But Zim went up to "Quigley and
shot off a lot of oratory in an attempt
to convince the director of play that
he had no wrong intentions. It
J availed nothing, and when Zim saw.
