We have it direct from Willie
Ritchie that golf puts a fighter in
swell condition. From our modest
observations we gather the notion
that every fighter wants a slice.
Billy Sunday recently umpired a
ball game in Kansas City and called
out several birds for stealing. Meb
be they didnt hit the trail fast
enough for Bill.
It's just possible you can win a
pennant with a one-man team, but
the magnates at Troy, N. Y., found it
can't be done with a one-man au

missed from the Harvard intercolleg

is than the remaining members" of
the hurling corps. Jim is no better
than the rest of his club, which, on
the brand of ball it has been turning
out, should be far above its present
McConnell indicated a comeback
yesterday against the Cardinals,
pitching some shoots that would
have won seven times out of ten,
but his mates had one of their ex

allowed only eight hits and scattered
these fairly well. A freak homer and
a bit of slow work by one of George's
backers were responsible for two
