"BIG ED" WALSH PLAYS PART OF
RESCUER AT BEACH
Ed Walsh, "Big Ed," the "Iron
Man," proved yesterday that his he
roic temperament is not confined to
the ball field.
The White Sox pitcher saved two
girls from drowning at the Chicago
Beach hotel. Walsh had dived from a
raft. A moment later some fool up
set the raft to hear the girls scream.
The water was eight feet deep.
Walsh heard a girl call for help,
dragged her out just as she sank, and
then swam back and rescued her
companion, who was nearly drowned
and who, in her struggles, several
times pulled him under. Only the big
pitcher's great strength enabled him
to save her life and his own.
SAYS SADDLE CLUB LAND IS
The contention of the Saddle and
Cycle club that Willie Ulrey was tres
passing when he received his death
from the shears thrown by Nicholas
Moga, the club gardener, was robbed
of its effectiveness yesterday by L. K.
Sherman, member of the Illinois riv
ers and lakes commission.
Sherman says the lake shore in
front of the club on which Ulrey and
his boy companions were walking
when the shears were thrown is pub
lic property. "The title to the bed of
Lake Michigan is in the state of Illi
nois," he said, "and the line of state
public property is the shore line, or
the line of ordinary high water. The
beach strip or ground alternately
covered by ordinary high and low
water, is public property of the state
of Illinois in exactly the same man
ner as is the bed of Lake Michigan.
The riparian rights of jfche property
owner along the shore give him sim

The declaration of Colin C. M.
Fyffe and other directors of the club
that they would stick by Moga "all
tne way Because tne Doy was tres
passing" is borne out by the record
of Moga's bonds in the state's att'y's
office. The bonds were signed by
Bertram M. Winston, president of the
club, and Fred M. Winston, a mem
ber. They scheduled real estate
worth $250,000 for Moga's release.
