hotter than others. Some of the Wash

"Cincinnati's park Is tho hottest of
all. Get down there in the hole In
July and August nnd you'll ilnd out
what real heat Is. Tho only pnrk thnt
compnrcu with It is tho ono at Kan
sas City. That diamond stand roof Is
about even with tho street. It can be
blowing n hurricane and there won't

park to breeze a mosquito. Thb only
tlmo the nlr circulates Is when there
Is n row with nn umpire or some pitch
