In response to the more or less metrical challenge of a day or so ago one
of the elect, writes In admitting that he "doesn't know' whether Wilson, Taft,
or T. R. was elected how the Harvard-Yale game came out but by the
whiskers of Mohammed," he adds, "I am now (n a position to chant off-hand
the batting and fielding averages, Just out, of every ball player In both big
leagues." We believe him. Some game is the password.
As for the comparative hold of football and baseball, we heard a

Suppose Eckersall, a Western critic, should pick hla first All-America
team exclusively from the West, and give Harvard one man on hla second
eleven, again graciously conceding that Brickley was enUtled to make
the next best team?
Such a selection would be Just as fair and Just as sane aa selecyons
labeled All-America picked exclusively from the East after the manner
of the Fish or even the Camp round-ups at the end of the season. It would
be foolish to even bring on discussion If it were not for the fact that cer
tain papers still persist In giving this Junk circulation from year to year.
East vs. West.
They have been playing better football In the East than in the West
for several years, when tho nrst dozen best teams from each aectlon are
compared, but a conceit which takes It for granted that another big sec
tion hasn't even one star capable of ranking among the first eleven Is too
monumentally Inane to call for anything except a key to the main storage
vault of the cannery. On with the embalming fluid and the aeal hermetlcal.
The Tinker Case.
"Why pan Murphy or Evers," queries O. H. F., "for refusing to trade
off a star Inflelder like Tinker If proper value Isn't furnished in returnT
Why expect them to break up their team to satisfy one man's ambition if
they figure they are getting the worst
Mr. Murphy and Even gave Tinker permission to dicker with Cincin
nati for a managerial Job. Tinker
for ten years as a vital factor in a team which had won four pennants ana
two world championships. His remaining seasons as a ranking shortstop
have only two or three years to run. He waa offered double the salary and
a chance to continue In the game Indefinitely aa one of the leaders. The
deal proposed waa fair enough for Mr. Murphy to accept it twice before re
versing himself. . .
If ten years' brilliant and steadfast servlco deserves no reward, a
profession which appeals heavily to 20,000,000 people a year Is about as
broad and as free as Siberian serfdom.
