RAP OUT VICTORY
Islanders Make Meat Off Harry
: Stauffar and Defeat Clin
ion 4 to 2. -
QUARTET OF TWO-BAGGEI S
Howard Touched Freely ..and Retires
in Fourth In- Favor of Scott Who
Proves the Stingy Boyr , L.
Harry Stauffer was clouted, consid
erably harder than the score indicate
in this morning's game. All -.of .the
nine hits were hard drives, four of
tbem being two bagger. Howard,
who Is strictly a warm weather man,
was. touched up pretty lively, too, and
lie was given his blanket in the fourth
and Joe Scott substituted. The old
head was in fine form and didn't al
low the semblance of a hit. '
The Islanders drew first, blood.
After Murphy and Cook had gone ont
Swalm singled, and Novacelt, whose
average for the game was. 1,000, drove
Dim in with a double io right center.
In the third after Howard had been
retired Murphy smashed one to,, the
lift field fence for two sacks and Cook
sent him home with a. single to cen
ter. Swalm went out to Thiery and
Novacek walked, but Bsrger was
taken care of by Backoff.
The Infants bunched two hits in
the same round and tied up the score.
Stauffer was thrown out from Berger
to Novacek and Ohland drew a pass.
Xye flew out to Murphy. Buelow was
walked purposely, which proved How
ard's undoing, for Ron an hit one' to
Dowers' territory for two sacks, scor
ing Ohland, Johnny Baker, who was
running for Buelow, being chased
back to third on a good throw to tne
plate by Dowers. Thiery's single
scored him a moment later, however.
That ended the run getting for the
Infants, for Joe Scott was surely "the
stingy man" and twirled in his "last
season's form. '
(inch It In Fifth.
The Islanders put over the winning
run in tne nun. Arter Murpny naa
died. Cook hit' to Nye and was sate
on an error, swalm hit along, tne
first base line and Buelow and Nye

Couple of Reminiscences.
Rock Island af DubuqUq. .
Clinton at Cedar Rapids.
Peoria at Bloomlngton.
Springfield at Decatur.
And once more the rain fell and the
game was off. It happened at the end
of the seeond inning, and the diamond
fsoon resembled a swamp. The visi
tors were in the lead by two runs when
the game was called, but with Wilson
in the box opposed to Rusty Owens,
chances seemed good to more than
even things up before the end. The
wo runs came in the second inning.
when a base on balls, a two-sacker, an
error, a single and a passedball caus
ed the Senators to grin with delight.
Smith was given the pass, and Hughes
advanced him to third with a two-
bagger to right field. He wasn't satis-1
Bed with being on third, though, and
tried to make home; but seeing he
couldn't, .he turned back, and Eng's
pretty peg to the far corner caught
him. The trouble had just commenced,
though, for Cocash found a single in
his stick which allowed Hughes to am
ble home, in spite of the throw to the
plate by Dowers. Cocash dashed for
second on the peg to" the pan, and Eng
tried to cut him off, but Cook let the
throw get away from him, and Cocash
went to third, from where he scored a
minute later on a passed ball. That
ended the scoring, and after the Is
'anders had failed to tally on the two
hits that they gathered in in their
half of the inning, the rain ended the
Srtley (Irtn to GoIbk
While Umpire Setley was watting for
the rain to let up enough to get to tne
car, he met an old friend who had
known him when he was a pitcher in
an amateur club back in Pennsylva
nia, and some interesting anecdotes
were recalled. On one occasion Setley
remembered how he broke up a game
by the use of a good sized Irish potato.
The team against whom he was play
ing had a couple of men on the bases.
with good chances of overcoming the
learl nf rm run whinh Kt1v toom
had Setleyad lcked potato in
a field that he had crossed on the way
come In handy, and In the eighth in
ning, when the men were on the bases,
he found the time to use it. Calling
the attention of the umpire to the fact
that he did not have his foot in the
box. he turned and threw the notato
away 6ver the first baseman's head
and the runners- who were on the
bases immediately made for home, but
SetleV stood on the third base line and
tagged them with the ball as they
passed, and when the umpire saw that
it was not a ball that Setley had thrown
away, he called the two men out. The
opposing club protested the decision.
and when they could not get the umps
to change it, they refused to play the
Igame, and Setley's team had to pay its
I own expenses that day.
Another time, when Setley was in
the outfield, an opposing player knock
ed out one that would have been good
for a home run, as it landed in a potato
field which was at the edge of the ball
park, and was lost. Setley was equal
to the occasion, though, and he threw
in a potato, and the second baseman
held on to it as though it was a ball,
and kept the runner hugging second
until Set,ey had hurf iedly hunted up
I 'he ball and thrown It in. -Umps was
some pitcher in his day, and he has
had many interesting experiences.1
Only Gnmr of Iar Cllnlinv,

rowly was averted when Umpire
