A NO HIT GAME
FOR MR, WILSON
Christy Performs Magnificently
and Dubuque Bites the
Dust 7 to 0. '
VISITORS NEVER DANGEROUS
Guerney and Companion Batted . Out
of the Box Balloon Trip for
Lundy List Saturday.

"Rock Island 'at Peoria.
Cedar Rapids at Decatur. :
Dubuque at Springfield. '
Clinton at Bloomington.
Christy Wilson had Dubuque at his
mercy yesterday, afternoon and let
I hem down wit hoot a single hit or
even the semblance of one. Wilson
was in the best form he has shown
for a couple of years.' His opponent,
Who rorformeil I'nusmil Feat of Al
lowing No Hits.
Guerney, made as good a start, but
his finish was different. For the first
four innings of the game there was
nothing doing for either side except
to come up and go down. In the Is
lander half of the next, inning, though,
the doings began. McBride was the
first up and he hit a. line drive over
second. Eng. who played first, tried
to saeriOce him but Mac was caught
while Gus reached first safely. Dow
ers ddeided that the time for scoring
was Tipe aud he laid a beautiful two
sacker out to the back fence, which
allowed Eng to complete the circuit.
Gilmore and Wilson were easy outs.
. The game so far looked as though
one run was about enough to win and
the fans were' jubilant. Guerney be
gan trying a .spit ball.
He succeeded in retiring Cook and
Swalm in the sixth and Berger found
a "place out in left field where no one
was stationed; ; and when I-juene
threw tlwj-JililV back In to the field
Joseph v.as: perched comfortably on
second., it -seemed a rather poor
chance after two" men were out but
Mellride landed his second hit of the
game, driving -Berger In. Eng fol
lowed Mac 'with a hit and they both
advanced a base when Guerney went
ballooning and walked Dowers whose
two previous hits had made him look
formidable. This filltd the bases.
(Juernoy here lost control of the ball
and as a result Gilmore was given
free transportation forcing McBride
over the pan. That was -Guemey's
finish. Manager Rowland took him
out and Companion warmed up. He
tried to slip one over on Wilson
when he wasn't looking making a
break to throw it but catching .him
self when he saw Christy was on to
him. The "Dub" had made a balk
and the result was that another run
was added as each of the runners
were given a base on the play. Wil
son ended the inning with a long fly
to Lejeune. ' '-'"
, tin AHrr Companion.
Four runs were not enough to sat
isfy the greuly champs and they
went after Companion immediately-in
the next inning. Murphy got a . hit,
.shooting one past Carr that fairly
sizzled. Cook laid down a pretty sacj
rifice and was safe himself when
Genins, who -was covering the bag,
muffed the throw to, first. . He per
ished an instant later, however, when
O'Brien doubled him on Swalm's liner,
which he caught. With, two" gone and
a man on Second Berger banged out
his second hit and brought Murphy
in. Companion . remembered what
McBride had done to Guerney and
gave him four wide ones. ;Eng. hit
one 'in the' eye and knocked it out
over, second and B2rger scored. It
was time for Companion to - step
down and out and Beisser took his
place on the firing - line. Dowers
ended the inning. . - ' ;
Beisser held the champions safe the
next inning-eird ,.tben, Dubuque took
its . last turn at .the bat and Wilson
put? them , to i the' bad easily. The Is-

Up to the time when the locals took
such a liking to the curves and spit
ball of Guerney, the game was inter
esting. After that the Job was so
easy that there was nothing to it.
: Gus Eng made an excellent show
ing on the first sack getting 10 put
outs and no errors while the two hits
he gathered in were .timely. ' .

SLAUGHTER PROVES THE STAF
Track In Bad Shape and This With
Strong Wind Greatly Handi- -capped
' The juniors won the class meet held
by the high school students ' at the
Ninth street track Saturday by. a fair
margin over the seniors, their closest
rivals for the honor. It was not an
ideal (day for track athletics as there
was too much wind and the track was
too rough on account of the recent
heavy rains.' The showing made by
the participants was hardly good
enough to settle definitely who will
go to the meet which is to he held at
Keokuk next Saturday. In fact it has
caused some discussion as. to whethei
it , would not be better to pick a
larger numbe than could go there
and send them to the state meet at
the, University of Illinois.
Fred Slaughter, the colored sprinter
of the seniors, made the highest nutn
ber of points getting 18, by taking
first in all the sprints and second ii.
one of the runs. Clifford and Earl
Fraser tied for second honors with
15 points each.
The two upper classes had a merry
chase for awhile but the juniors won
(Ait with a saf i margin. They made

nage was not to be stopped. Nobody
felt sorry when the side was retired
for the game seemed won.
But It was not -to be. Lundin's
belt got caught in the anchor of Mil
ler's balloon and the first thing he
knew a free pass and two hits had
the bags firil. Then Companion came
up and found one that 'was good for
two sacks. It cleared the bases o
the other three who were there and
gave the visitors three runs. Lejeune
added another hit and. another score
resulted, tieing the game
Lundy ill the next Inning started
the trouble . with another free pass
to Derringer. O'Brien laid down a
bunt and reached first himself while
Cook and Edmunds were doing the
Alfonso-Gaston stunt as to who should
cover the bag. Derringer went to
third on the play,, and came home on
Carr's long fly to Swalm.
The champs were unable to do any
thing with Guerney in the last two
times at bat and the game ended
