clinched by consecutive hitting.
In this game Oaston was hit hard?
er than in any of the sl\ games he has
yet pitched. McKenzie was very ef?
fective, but was saved from defeat by
phenomenal fielding, notably by Ten

sational catches. Had ho failed In
either, two runs would have been
scored. Coates in the left also m*de
a atar catch. It was a scroamer, fall?

Parts prices ire your taxes. They come to

can get them low, if you will.
Most manufacturers take for granted you won't

got you. But Studebaker says, "Find out now."
Because the Studebaker maxim is?a square deal

We guarantee E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20"

punishment coming to him from tho
league proper. Still ho should not bo
too harshly dealt with. Of course!
there Is no excuse for Buch ac.tlon as |
his, but ho Is a youngster, barely out of
Ills teens, and even though It may be'
heresy to say so. It Is better to huv%j
to punish one of these fiery youngsters

no feeling as to whither the game laj
won or lost, simply working for tha
