So far as The Argus is able to learn,
the unsettled state in which Three
Eye league affairs were left by th :
Cnicago meeting does not appear to
please tho great majority of bast ball
patrons in Uock Island, nor does the
suggestion of Belden Hill of Cedar
Rapids to disorganize the circuit and
place Uock Island and Davenport on
the tail of the Central association kite
meet wit'n general approval.
As matters now stand the cities i-i
the southern end of the circuit, possi
bly through lack of foresight on th.'
part of hose in the notch, have been
given the handle of the whip, and it"
there is a split of the present Three
Eye league Rock Island and Daven
port, instead of remaining with their
old associates, will be forced to follo.t
Cedar Rapids into new fields, leaving
the southern towns to uphold the
name and prestige of the Three-Eve
circuit. Lovers of baseball, who havi?
been heard to express themselves on
this subject, say that the talk of re
adjustment of classification, based on
the returns of the next census Is pre
mature, being unnecessary for at least
another year. While there is no occa
sion for raising the subie'-t at this
time, it is a fact. that, wnatever the
outcome might be. Rock Island
ana Davenport would be iett on a
sironger basis by remaining with the
larger cities in the south end. instead
of goinjr into an uncertain alliance.
Have Hail n Sum pie.
The people of the three cities have
had a chance to see the inferior class
of baseball put up by the Central as
sociation in the exhibition games
played here and in Davenport during
the past year and they feel that they
have been educated to a higher sand
ard than that of the Class C circuit.
; During the discussion of the subject
at the Chicago meeting. Mr. Hill, who
started the talk of the dismemberment
of the Three-Eye, maintained that but
for the efforts of President Sexton the
Three-Eye woald have been dropped
in its classification long ere this. The
burden of Hill's argument, however.
was along the purely imaginary lines
of factional differences of the present
circuit, precipitating, as he said, con
tinual strife. In reply to this Wilson
Bering of Decatur made the logical
declaration that the north and somh
rivalry of the Three-Eye is not differ
ent or more keen that than between
ie east and west in the two big
leagues, the Western league, or in
many ether circuits. Mr. Bering I very
aptly maintained that one of the ele
ments that made for the success cf
baseball was this very rivalry of geo
graphical sections and added, that,
while a more compact circuit might
be formed, with a smaller outlay for
ruiiroau iare. sr.cn a cnange would o
injurious to the spirit that makes base
ball what it is, and which in the end

Following Mr. Bering's argument
both Presidents Kinselia of Spring

' for their parts they would not sur
' render their associations with sue?

and Davenport for all the towns

' position of the representatives of the
two largest cities in the circuit, that
whatever was done in altering the ci

I During the discussion of .'.he subject
E. M. Holland of Bloornington, former
president of the league, said that while
a committee was being named to con
; fer with a like committee from the
. Central association, the Central league
ought to be also invited to name a
committee with a view of revising the
, entire baseball map covered by the
three circuits. Mr. Holland stated he
! understood that Terre Haute and
Kvansville are now reay to come back
to the old Three-Eye family and there
by restore its original status and name.
Fans in Rock Island, if given an op
portunity to express themselves, would
probably vote to give Cedar Rapids its

To Aid t;lrU la Or no I ning:.
One of the first acts of the associa
tion was to pass a resolution to aid
the college girls in organizing a tennis
club. The girls have been consider
ing an organization for some time, but
the question of a tennis court has been
the great drawback. Naturally the
girls couldn't "skin" a court them
selves, so they appealed to the young
men to help them out. The latter gal
lantly responded to the appeal of the
co-eds and decided to turn out en-1
masse a week from next Sat ui day to
make the court. .

Tennis is growing in popularity ev

sport, not only between the different 1
clubs, but also with other tenuis or
