SWAY II DUCKPIN
In Days of Old When Knights Were Bold and Barons Held Their Sway J
MATCH AT PALACE
La Salles, Champlains, and De
Sotos Are Victorious in At
' tack Against Small Pins.
AND BALBOAS LOSERS
Match Game Is Scheduled Be

By KIRK C. MILLER.
It was Knights of Columbus night at
the Palace and -word had been heralded
throughout the kingdom of Potomac
for all the Sir Knights to foregatner
and bring with thsm their beat duckpin
re. There were the tribe of Henne-
pins. the third of La Salles. the Cham
plains, Marquettes, De Sotos, and the
Balboas; all answered to 'the summons
for a grand duckpin match at the big
palace on the hill.
Five gallant and noble Sir Knights
came from their various husbandmans
to roll at the royal duckplns and the
night on the Palace alleys was pro.
claimed one of the most successful dur.
trg the reign of old King Potomac.
To'tcll the story more simply. If such
a thing were possible, the six Potomac
Icague teams of the Knights of Colum
bus held their weekly matches at the
Palace alleys. Those' fake tribes re
ferred to are only the names of the
teams and the gallant and noble Sir
Knights are mere men who make up
La Salles, who lead the Potomac
League were matched against the Hen
nepins, taking- two out of three games
from the latter by scores of 63 to 457,
473 to 464. The third set went to Henne
pins by totals of 4SS to 441.
Next the Champlains and Marquettes
took the alleys. The first round Indl
cated thai the teams were rather even
ly match, a margin of but ten pins sep
arating the teams when the- ten boxes
had been rolled. Marquette won with a
grand total of 474. Champlains seemed
to find themselves in the next string.
and th- ten pins balanced in 'the direc
tion of that quint. Score 480 to 470. The
, final match between these teams was
indeed a bitter one; each side had a
game to its credit, and this third une
would aecidt tne nonors or me even'
Both teams, started out with fiat
games. About the seventh box, the
.Marquettes experienced a disastrous
slump and failed to find the middle of
tne alley, in tne meantime, unamp'airs
kept up their steady flat game, and
nosed out with an advantage of some
thing like twenty-two pins.
Balboas were at a handicap in th!r
nets against De Sotos. it seems that
there was a fancy dress ball at (he
Grand Lodge of the K. of C, and many
of the Balboas were absent, their places
being filled by substitutes. All of these
sets went to De Sotos.
A match game is scheduled for the
Brunswick alleys for tomorrow night,
quints of the Phil Bobys Company,
and Havenner Baking Company being
the principals The former team is
made up of the following. "Dutch"
Munch, "Chief" Munch, "Dick" Rob
ertson, "Buck" Barton, and one other
who is still to be selected. George King
is heading the Havenner team. It is
understood that a heavy side bet will go
to the winners
It was an eventful evening in the In
dividual tournament, when McKnew.
rolling against Welser, and Van Bus
klrk, took both gamei, thereby tjing
.himself with the latter tor first place.
Van Busklrk later won a game from
Welser. It being this match that put
the two headers on an even footing.
Each has won fourteen and lost four
matches. The standings In the in
dividual tournament are as follows:

A Preliminary World Series.
Shortly before the curtain rises this spring there will be three exhi
bition series worth noting.
The first is that between Red Sox and Pirates at Hot Springs. Mr.
Dreyfuss says this series will be especially interesting as the two teams
are to meet In the fall for the big title. He may be right. Or he may bo

Athletics. This may be another preliminary W. S.
The third is the Giant-Senatorial clash with another big series anglo

And His Name Was
There was a magnate who believed that he was wondrous smart;
He jumped into the Cub machine and tore it all apart;
And when he saw what he had done how he had torn his pants,
He tried to build it up again, but never had a Chance.
They are already beginning to ask leading questions out in Cubville.
Prof. Fullerton wants to know just how Bresnahan will strengthen the
team when every timo be catches with Archer on the bench the catching
will be weakened 20 per cent, and every time he plays the outfield, with
Sheckard on the bench, the outfield will be weakened 10 per cent The'
debate may be considered on.
