"In some ways golf is like base
ball. In golf the thing to do is to
keep your eyes on the ball and your
mind on what should be dpne with it
In baseball a pitcher has to keep his
eye on the batter and watch his every
move. He has to keep his mind on
pitching and not think of the crowd..
"The swing in golf is different than
the swing of a ball bat, but a fellow
who plays baseball has an advantage,
I think. His muscles are trained to
co-ordinate and he is accustomed to
using them more than the average
person."
Matty is always businesslike and
he has gone to this thing of getting
back to his old pitching form by play
ing golf in a businesslike manner. He
is confident the system will be a
winner.
WONDER IF WE'VE GOT A RIGHT
TO HAVE YELLOW JAUNDICE?
Pretty soft for this Yellow Taxi Cab
bunch.
They got together about six
months ago, put Up a lot of cash, ad
vertised in the newspapers that they
were going to operate yellow cabs
and then, when they got Into busi
ness, secured injunctions preventing
the indescriminate use of yellow by
cab owners.
They went into court and had two
hardworking cab owners fined $50
and costs just because they painted
their taxis yellow after the fashion

thing on yellow.

SUITS AGAINST SOME QUEER
APPRAISALS GOING NICELY
The suits to set aside the queer ap
praisals of school properties are pro
gressing. Rosalie Cavanna of Paris, France,
filed answer to the board of educa
tion. She says the 1915 valuation of
the State street lot which she holds
under a school lease is not too small.
However, Mrs. Cavanna has leased
the lot, between Monroe and Madi
son, to Ike Bezark at a figure much
greater than the one she pays the
school board. Part of the difference
she spends in living in Paris.
The lot was valued at $407,600 by
the appraisers. They admitted that
they had taken off 15 per cent of the
valuation because of bad business,,
the war and several'other things.
These etceteras, according to mem

see the children get the money which
belongs to them for their land, should
not figure in the setting of rentals as
the appraisers had only the right to
determine the true cash value of the
school property.

AFTER AUTO SPEEDERS
Mayor Thompson has been instruc-
ed by the council to appoint a com
mittee of citizens to be known as the
citizens' traffic com'n.
Municipal Judge Joseph Sabath,

order, -which he holds will curb many

mittee which will call on the gover

his call for a special session of the
legislature a bill imposing a prison
fine on speeders and persons who
drive auto while intoxicated.
"We also need a law which will
compel a more strict examination of
persons driving an auto," said the
judge,
