Schedules for ThreEye Both
Shown to be i Fyllof Bad
Features. DOES HOLLAND .KNOW?
Little Saved inMijeaoe in No. 1 and
Some Tacked On In
; Manager Hayes, of Davenport, and
M. 11. Sexton, had a conference last
evening' over the sample schedules
sent out from the office of President
Holland of . the Three-Eye league, for
the inspection of the clubs and the se
lection f one or the other. They found
a number of vital defects In both. Iii
fact, it seems that the adoption of eith
er would operate against the best in
terests of the league as a whole. Al
most equal in importance to tbe effect
of the acceptance of one of these sched
ules is the evidence that it shown that
President Holland docs not know per
sonally what js going on in his office.
.. The letter that accompanied the
schedules referred to certain features'
that upon minute examination were
found to be otherwise than described.
For Instance, in No. .2, it was said that
there were no conflicts between Ilock
Inland' and - Davenport dates. The
schedule Itself shows there are in fact
nine conflicts. In No. 1 there are no
less than- 39 dates on which- Rock Is
land and Davenport play at home at
the same Jime.-. .'Thqre were several
other inconsistencies equally glaring.
President Holland did not sign the let
ter. His name was typewritten in
when the manifold copies were made.
1Ila Vmprm Flrnt.
A peculiar circumstance connected
with the schedule making is the man
ner In which the newspapers have been
acquainted with the features long be
fore the various clubs were notified.
For instance, the Sporting News of
Jan. 19 gave a detailed description
over the signature of E. E. Pierson. of
schedule No. 1. That latter. was prob
ably written in the early ;part of Jan
uary. The different clubs were not
told officially of these features till they
received their copies within the last
The actual saving in mileage in No.
1 about which so' ntuch'has been said,
amounts to hut little when figured out.
There is a total saving of 3.027 miles
over last year. 1 The dope from Bloom
ington has had it that the saving was
7.000 miles. In the No. 2 schedule the
mileage is 3.299 greater than last year
and there are few. If any, redeeming
Under schedule No. 1 each club
would save about 100 in mileage. Pres
ident Sexton figures that many times
that amount will be lost through the
conflicts between Rock Island and
In No. 1 Rock Island plays 15 games
away from home before coming here
and opens with Davenport, with which
four practice games before tbe season
opens, are dated. Davenport does not
get a Sunday at home till May 27. be
inj away 18 games in the beginning of
the season. Cedar Rapids is in even
worse shape with six games at home
in the latter' part of May and no Sun
day game till June 3.
clubs if they 'happened to find bad
weather on the circuit, which is to be
expected, would come home bankrupt.
Then In July Rock Island and Daven
port each have 21 " games, practically
the entire month, at home and a con
flict on every, date:
In the copy of No. 1 furnished Man-
ager Hayes of Davenport has no dates
at all for June i, 5, C, and 7, and Sept.
With least labor and trouble It mokes
rtot-brends, biscuit and cako of finest
flavor, flight sweet, appetizing- and
assuredly digestible and vholcsOmo.
. -wPio Oakimo Powder Co..' CHieAaau"
7; S and 9; -There are about 13 general
open dates in each schedule.
In No. 2 r)avenport is dated to play
at home and at Springfield June 21, 22,
and 23. In No. 2 Rock Island Is jump
ed about the. country promiscuously,
for instance playing at Springfield July
13, tbe team comes here opening July
14, and after three games goes back
to Decatur for three. .
It looks, as though the critics pf last
year's schedule found It a much harder
task than they anticipated to Improve
upon what they condemned so harshly.
The only other conclusion, the circum
stances seem to justify. Rock Island is
too charitable to entertain.
Masons' Quarters Are Made More At
tractive by Artistic Work Open
1 Thursday Evening. '
The Masonic temple decoration is
now almost completed, and the hall
wilj be used for the first time Thurs
day evening, when Trio lodge, No. 57,

Henry A. Voege, the contrac
tor, , has dope the work in
a most artistic manner. The ceiling of
the main hall has been finished to rep

ment of the electric lights, a unique
effect is produced. A large number
of additional lights have been installed,
and theso have been arranged to rep

rooms have been redecorated and fur

Pleases Again. Walker Whiteside
at tbe Illinois last evening in "Heart
and Sword" gave a finished perform
ance. Though the distinguished actor
is not a stranger here and his vehicle
is not a new one to a Rock Island au
dience, he was given the customary
welcome. He demonstrated again that
he has lost in the romantic drama none
of the prestige gained in Shakespear
"A Bunch of Keys." Every theatri
cal season brings to the fore some
new name to conjure with In the mimic
world. Usually it is the name of some
young woman who while having had a
long and honorable experience upon
the stage, had been previously, denied
the opportunity to furnish the evidence
of her starring qualities. So it was
with Lillian Law so a who this season
was chosen to assume the role of
"Teddy" in Hoyt's "A Bunch of Keys."
