Cincinnati and the Cubs are today
playing off a postponement at the
North Side park. Tomorrow the
Cubs will entertain the Boston
Braves, the vanguard of the eastern
teams.
Cincinnati has released Pitcher
Frank McKenery to Birmingham.
Chris Kaad toppled 694 pins and
shot into the singles lead of the state
bowling tournament at the Ran
dolph alleys. A fire in the restaur
ant attached to the alleys did not
bother the bowlers and some big
scores were hung up.
A well-known movie press agent
yesterday, while talking to us largely
of $50,000 salaries received by the
screen stars, bewailed the fact he
was not among those present when
the free sandwiches were passed
around in the North Side press coop.
Ralph De Palma and his Mercedes
are barred from competition in the
international sweepstakes at Indian
apolis, Decoration day. De Palma's
entry was two days late and Barney
Oldfield refused to consent to waiv
ing the rules.
CUBS GET FINE SUPPORT FROM
NORTH SIDE FANS
By Mark Shields
There is a big change in the spirit
back of the Cub team this season and
the players themselves are quick to
realize the shift which has put the -fans
of the North Side solidly be- f
hind them. There is more of the
whole-souled support which has lent
encouragement to South Side teams

in doleful slumps.
This new feeling is best evidenced
in the way Nick Allen, a new catcher,
has been received. So far Nick has
done nothing marvelous, but he has
tried his level best, and his defensive
work has been a lifesaver to the
Tinks, who were without a reliable
man after both Fischer and Archer
were injured.
Every time Allen stepped to the bat
in the double-header yesterday there
was a roar of approval for him. That
is the spirit that puts heart into the
athletes and nerves them to play
even a little above their regular
speed.
George McConnell is another fel
low who is a recipient of this glad
hand business. George is easily the
most popular man of the club with
the fans, having pushed aside Saier
and Zim, who were the top-heavy
choices of the people on the West
Side.
Eight thousand fans traveled to
the park yesterday to see the Cubs
split with Pittsburgh. The double
bill, of course, was a great magnet,
but 8,000 crowds on Monday are
something that do not linger in mem- $
ory when the Cub club is up for con
sideration. This increased follo'wing is not be
cause the Cubs are playing such ex
cellent baseball. Cub teams of the
recent past have played just as good
baseball as the present alignment,
but there has never been the big get-
