rah. Booles, while sot yet ready by a week
or more, has all that a pitcher needs
to get away with his games except the
control,- which comes -with constant
work. Booles has not had any of this
necessary part of a pitcher's training
since last season except what lie has
secured since coming to El Paso and his
muscles are still a bit stiff from dis
use. But the warm of the sun is thaw

him .going great against the Douglas

The spirit of the Douglas series was
the best that has been seen on the local
grounds for the past two seasons.
There wa.3 none of the ragging which
has marred so many good baseball
games in El Paso and the Douglas club

when Mackey made the decision down

enough for a howl.
Hewitt was work.ing as good Sunday
as he was bad the week before. His

pthem or sell them, but force them to
get Into shape and put a1 penalty of a
heavy fine on the next offence. Fine
them this time. Don't wait until the
next, for it Isn't their first offence.
Manager Chance has the system. Warn
them once, then a heavy fine the second
time. Too many trials are not good.
Baseball players all over the country
should realize and are realizing the
fact that the men 'in the game today
are far in advance morally and intel
lectually of the men who played years
ago. This statement does not mean
that there were no smart ball players
years ago. That woulu not be true.
But taken as a class baseball pla"
ers today occupy a higher standing
in the community than they did years
ago, and they are gradually stepping
up instead of down. The players have
elevated themselves. They enjoy this
higher standing because the moral tone
of the game has risen gradually.
Basebajl players' should realize that
their financial status will become bet
ter as their mpral'piane is raised. This
statement mayseem a bit strange. But
1 iook ai it in tiyj: manner. With the
J moral tone of the game raised profes- j
sional and business men and women
in larger numbers are attracted to trie
ball park. The more prosperous tr.e
crowd the greater demand for the
higher priced seats. As the game
makes even greater inroads among the
people who ten or even five years ago
would not consider attending a ball
game the crowds increase in size. That
means more money at the gate. Anu
that means more money for the play
ers. So men who fall to keep them
selves In proper physical trim and
wantonly violate the training rules of
a club arc iniurinc not only them-
is not sufficient and they care nothing
for the interests of their employers,
then they should be punished so harsn
ly that they will give two thoughts
to the training rules in the future.
