A long reach is a great help to a
first-baseman, it is sometimes nara
to gauge a long throw. Stand with
both feet in front of the base so that
the position may be easily changed
from one side to the other, according
to the course of the-ball. Watch for
the foul flies. Practice springing. Al
ways be on the alert to grab'popups.
Don't wait for the ball to come to
you. Go after it!
All guns are set for the grand open
ing for Rowland's South Side crew
of ballplayers Wednesday.
We sure hope there will be nobody
who can pull down our Sox this sea
son. News stories break every day that
concern the state street department
Why don't the big loop dailies car
ry that sort of news?
They get State street advertising.
Is that an answer?
The Day Book doesn't take any
That is why we can afford to carry
all ends of Chicago news.
It takes a lot of funny things to
make this ol' world go 'round.
For instance, there is more gaso
line in the country now than there
was a year ago.
Yet the price is higher now than
Gasoline merchants sell us gaso
line and they give us hot air.
One of the long-suit slogans here
is "Come and make your home in
After that sort of plea is spread
broadcast over the land, folks should
put themselves out to be more than
nice to strangers.
Chicago American heads an edi
torial: "Can You Read, Write, Steal,
Cheat? Come In."
Sounds like an advertisement for a
strike guard or a newspaper gunman.
Bet it would make a rieht inter
esting column, if some one of the bigi
papers had the nerve to run a society
column for the poorer people.
"Mrs. Casey Jones," for instance,
"is giving a clothes washing tea at
her home Monday."
We are afraid to guess what wom
en's skirts are going to be this year.
We quite distinctly remember that
last summer they advanced from the
ankles to the shoetops.
But, shucks, everything else is go
ing up and the women folks do like
to be in style.
IF YOU WANT THAT REPORT
YOU'LL HAVE TO GET BUSY
V'ashington, April 11. Whether
or not the truth about industrial con
ditions in America is to be suppressed
depends now on the U. S. senate.
The fate of the resolution ordering
the printing of 100,000 copies of the
final report of the com'n on indus
trial relations and 10,000 copies of
testimony now hangs in the balance.
Unless an aggressive fight is made
it will be defeated by a handful of
reactionary senators, led by Hoke
Smith of Georgia. They will accom
plish this by taking advantage of
senatorial red tape and particularly
of the vicious system known as "sen
atorial courtesy," by which one sen
ator can often block action.
Whether or not the interests that
want the report suppressed succeed
will, depend largely on the pressure
brought to bear on the senate by
those who want the facts about
American industrial conditions
An aggressive demand for action
will cut through all the red tape and
win speedy favorable action on the
resolution to print the report
Write your senator today!
A single gallon of gasoline will
milk 300 cows, bale four tons of hay,
mix 35 cubic yards of cement, move
a ton truck 14 miles, plow three
fifths of an acre of land or generate
sufficient electricity to illuminate a
farmhouse for 30 hours.
