Heinie Zim forgot his good inten

CUBS ROLL UP LARGE COUNTS
DEFENSIVE WORK BAD
By Mark Shields
Manager Joe Tinker should' imme
diately get in communication with
Pres. Wilson and petition the mobil
ization of the militia to guard the
second base territory on the North'
Recently the hostiles have made
frequent raids in that section and the
result has been a ghastly massacre.
Joe called'out his own militia yes

Great danger to Mike's dome was
narrowly averted, the ball hitting
about ten feet from him.
This loppy play came in the third
inning, when the Braves rolled home
four counters. Three were on when
Red Smith lofted one in the general
direction of left field. A strong wind

back the balL Apparently every one
realized tajs but Doolan. Leslie Mann

gent in the first row- at a Follies

movemnets of Leslie's ten-second
Consequently,' the ball fell within a
few feet of Mike, Smith got a hit,
and the Braves counted a run when
the ball should have been caught in,
