Allow the Cubs and Giants to play
all their games in foreign parts, ft
without once visiting their own lot,

National league would settle down

That both clubs are still figured in
the flag hunt can be attributed to the
fact that they were not confined to
their home lot all season. In their
own yards their winning percentages
resemble the living skeleton of a tent
show. This goes with particular
force for the Giants. Their record
winning streak of 17 games in the

a trip to Pittsburgh and St. Louis,
during which nine games were play
ed. Six of them were victories and
enabled the team to scramble into

themselves use as an "out" is the
stiff and chilling breeze from the
lake during the earlier days of the
season. Veterans of the West Side
