The chairman will be provided with
a good, long hook, and the speaker who
exceeds the time limit of two minutes
will be yanked back into his seat with
out ceremony. Of course, this does not
include Comiskey and the old war horse

audience there to listen to them tell of
the good old days. ,

given the honor of pitching against the
Chicago team, should It be possible for
him to come. Frank Harbuck, the new
