PLAYING GREAT BALL.
Kirby "Red" White Not Only
Pitching Well But Fine
The many friends of Kirby "Red"
Whito In his old home will be pleased
to know that he is not only one of the
leading twirlers of the Western Lea
gue but also one of its best utility
The following complimentary notices
of "Red" are taken from the Sioux
City Journal of Friday, June 10, and
show the kind of ball he is putting up
for Sioux City and the standing he has
with the press and fans of that city:
'But for an error by Callahan in
the ninth when two were out, White
would have held the Rourkes scoreless
here today, but as It was he held them
to one lone run and three scattered
and very dubious hits. While Kirby
was playing with the Rourke athletes
his comrades pounded home a victory
for him. White was in rare form.
Every offering he submitted whistled
past the Bourkes like the Twentieth
nnnturv Limited arointr through Po
dunk. Duplicating Grover's feat of
yesterday, Kirby whiffed ten of the
eager Omaha entertainers, Those
who did not fan couldn't get the pill
much past the Infield and all was easy
for Sioux City.
"Not satisfied with being one of the
best utility outfielders in the league,
Kirby White is classed among the
premier twirlers of the Western league.
That this classification is not all bunk
was proved yesterday when the blond
fllnger held Pa Rourke's athletes to
three hits, which, according to re
ports, were very dubious ones. Had it
not been for an error on tho part of
Callahan, Kirby would have a shutout
to his credit today. White was the
mainstay of the Sioux City twirling
staff last year, and already has demon
strated his value to a pennant winner

OF BOND ISSUE
Prof. Patterson Tells of
Changes Ordered and
SCHOOL CAN NOT OPEN
Until Improvements Required by
State Are Made-Clear Out
line of What the Board
Expects to Do.
Since the calling of the special elec
tion to pass on the question of the
issue of $20,000 of bonds for Improve
ments and repairs at the Webster and
Washington school buildings the ques
tion has often been asked, "Is not the
board of education asking for about
twice as much money as Is needed to
do the work."
UlThe editor has found the people
with whom he has talked universally
in favor of making the Improvements,
but all of them have thought that the
amount asked for was too large.
Therefore on Wednesday morning he
called on Prof. Patterson, superintend
ent of the public schools, and asked
him to give an outline of what the
state inspector had ordered done and
an estimate of the cost.
The statement of Prof. Patterson
Is as follows :
"A new heatingsystem and sanitary
toilets must be provided for the Web
ster building. A skylight must be put
in for the auditorium of the Washing
ton building and the boys toilet at
that building repaired.
"From the figures which have been
presented to the board as near as we
can estimate the cost of these improve
ments will be as follows :
"Building for heating plant and
toilets at Webster building, $8500;
heating plant, $6500; toilets, $2000;
disposal of sewerage, $1200 ; skylight
for Washington building, $500 ; repair
of toilet at that building, $3Q0, mak
ing a total of $19,200.
"These Improvements and repairs
have been ordered by the state. In
addition every room In both buildings
needs to be painted. To those who
think this would be a wasteful ex
travagance, all that we ask is that
they visit the rooms and see whether
they would be willing to live in them.
"The Board of Education is unani
mously of the opinion that when the
improvements are made that it is only
economy to make them with consider
ation of the future. That it is foolish
to do only what will give relief for the
present, but will not answer the de
mands in a few years, which must fol
low a normal growth of the schools.
"The heating system at the Webster
building must be replaced. The pres
ent system is and always has been in
adequate. There are only four fur
naces to heat twelve rooms and it
would take at least seven furnaces of
that type to adequately heat the
building. With the present system
it has been impossible to heat the
third floor and it has been impossible to
to use it regularly for years. To attempt
to heat that building with a hot air
gravity system is faolish as it has
been proved that no three story build
ing can be adequately heated by the
gravity system and that it is a failure
In anything but a dwelling house.
"In order to properly heat a build
ing such as the Webster with hot air
it is necessary to heat the air to from
120 to 140 degrees and when this Is
done it devitalizes the air and makes
a room occupied by many people dan
gerous' to health.
"All estimates that we have re
ceived for the installation of a steam
heating plant for the building are in
round figures $6,500. This does not
Include housing the plant.
"Our Idea Is to erect a building on
the east side of the present building
the same length as the building 70
feet and 34 feet wide. The building
would' be one story high with base
ment. In the center of the basement
would be the heating plant on one
side of It would be the boys toilet and
on the other the girls. On the ground
floor would be an ordinary school room
and one large room for the manual
training classes. Roth of these rooms
are already badly needed. The man
ual training has already outgrown the
room in the city building and other
quarters must be secured.
"Many people have the idea that
the Webster building is not substan
tial and must soon be replaced, but
every architect that has examined
it has stated that it will last for at
least thirty yeara. The new building
will bo separated from the old about
KNOCKED FROM BOX
Deakyne Hammered Hard by Pot
ter Shoe Co., and Ilillsboro
Loses II to 5.
nillsboro was defeated Sunday af
ternoon at the Fair Ground by the
Potter Shoe Co., the score being 11
Deakyne started in to do the twirl
ing for Hillsboro, but was in poor
form and was touched up for nine hits
and gave one base on balls in the first
two innings good for nine runs. His
support also was ragged and uncer
tain. Deakyne was loft in until the
seventh when Vanzant took his place.
"Wltte" had everything the visitors
not getting a hit or run off of his de
livery. But it was too late to save
Hillsboro worked hard to overcome
the big lead of the Potters, but could
not reach, although fighting gamely
to the end.
In the third Hillsboro put up
fierce kick when Emery was called
out for cutting third. Snag claimed
that he touched tho bag and In this
was strongly backed by the other
members of the team. Most of the
spectators along the third base line
were of the opinion that the umpire
had bad eyesight.
While we were almost beginning to
think so, we can not win them all.
The boys, however, will be out again
next Sunday trying harder than ever.
Mllford will be their opponents and
this is one of the strongest amatenr
teams around Cincinnati. They de
feated Avondale Sunday 6 to 4 and all
who saw Avondale play here do not
need to be told that Mllford has a

"It is our hope when these changes
are made to remove the eighth grade
from the Washington building to the
Webster. This would give us addi-u
tional room for the High School which
it Is almost imperative that we have.
"A visit to the boy's toilets at the
Washington building will convince
anyone that they should be repaired
if not replaced. Also a visit to the
auditorium of that building will con
vince anyone of the need of a sky
light. This room originally was not
intended for a class room and is very

who thinks we contemplate spending
too much money to examine condi

are using only common sense and good
Judgment In looking at least a few
years Into the future.
"There Is only one place where any
money can be saved and the orders of
the state carried out and this we do
not consider wise economy. If in the
new building no provision Is made for
a school room or manual training the
cost would be decreased about $3,000.
"Just, another word in regard to the
furnaces. To secure new hot air fur
naces would cost about $3000. If hot
air furnaces are put In the cellar
must be lowered at least a foot and a
half and the cellar fire proofed. The j
cellars are now on solid rock and no
one has been willing to make a con-1
tract to make the excavation
without blasting and will not guaran-,
tee not to injure the walls if he blasts.
This practically precludes hot air fur -

naces and means a separate building
for the heating plant. A lso it should
be remembered that the fuel for a
steam plant would be about 40 per
cent less than for hot air.
"People must,also bear In mind that
the state specifies just exactly how all
the work shall be done and these
specifications must be carried out."

ELTON. SCHOOL REUNION
Many Former Pupils and Teach
ers Attend and Have Very
A reunion of former pupils and
teachers of the Elton School was held
Thursday on the school lawn and
three hundred were present and spent
a most enjoyable day.
Old schoolmates met and exchanged
remlnlscenses of their happy child
hood days and many were the stories
told of boyish pranks, of victories and
defeats on play ground and in classes;
of the bad and good of the popular
and unpopular, of childhoods love af
fairs and the pictures that memory
painted were indeed beautiful.
At noon a basket dinner was spread
and the first recollections of old days
seemed to bring back the appetites of
that time and give the old delicious
flavor wnlch the lunches had when
they were eaten from the dinner pails.
No fixed program had been arranged
but entertaining talks were made by
Frank Leslie, Will Linn, O. R. Keelor,
Rev. John Howard, O. B. Cox, Thomas
Kelson and John Montgomery. Letters
were also read from Dr. W. J. McSure
ly, of Oxford, D. S. Ferguson, of Five
Mile, H. N. Patton, Syracuse, N. Y.,

and W.T. McUlure, of lola, Kan. The
letters and speeches all renewed the
atmosphere and spirit of the early
The spirit of the occasion was en
tered into by everyone and it was
decided to hold anaunual reunion and
a permanent organization was formed
to arrange for the event.
Music for the occasion was fur
