Charley Pechous, the local boy
Who went to Peoria at start of the
season, is to have a chance at third
base on the North Side within a day
or two. He has performed nobly in
the Three-Eye organization, both at
the bat and in the field. I
Tinker is gathering in all the
young fellows available for a trial
before the end of the season. Now
is the season when minors are at
their best. They come to the Cub3
without anything on their minds, for

and Yanks must be reckoned. , The
two westerners have as many games
at home as the White So'x, and both

ly than our own hopes.
The future book does not hold
much promise, but there is still an
outside chance for top honors if the
