score of 7 to 2. This was Springfield's
ninth consecutive victory. The
weather was very cold.
Manusch scored the first run for
Rock Island in the first Inning owing
to the wildness of Pitcher Laudermilk.
Rock Island added its second in the
fifth. Laudermilk started bad in the
fifth when he walked Kohl, the first
one at bat. Queisser hit to center and
Cavet sacrificed, putting Queisser on
second and Kohl on third. Ochs was
called out on strikes and while work
ing on Manusch Laudermilk cut loose
with a wild pitch, Kohl scoring.
Vogel and Umpire White had a de
bete in the third Inning and Tighe put
Queisser on second to replace Vogel,
who was placed in retirement.
Smith Henvy Sticker.
Cavet wss unsteady in two rounds
and Springfield bunched hits then.
Smith virtually won the game with his
bat in the third and eighth innings. In
the third with the bases full he hit for
two sacks and cleaned the cushions
and in the eighth there were two on
when he hit a triple. Score:

in Last One at Danville
Danville, 111., May 16. (Special.)
Danville outplayed Rock Island Satur
day, but the luck of baseball was
against the locals and they lost the
last of the series. Danville had eight
men die on bases, while two of the
visitors passed away on the bags.
Four times the locals advanced men
as far as third, twice as far as second,
but failed to get further. The pitch
ing and fielding of Woods was a fea
ture of the game, striking out seven
and fielding bunts with clean throws
Callahan singled to right in the
opener, took second on Madigan's wild
throw and scored on O'Leary's double

A PITCHER IS RELEASED
Harle Wagner, MCarissa, 111., Recruit,
Goes Back Home.
The sale of Pitcher Harle Wagner
of the Islander staff fell through and
Harle has been given his release with
the understanding, however, that he
will sign np again next year for an
other tryout with Manager TIghe's
men. Harle was to have gone to Ot
tumwa in the Central association and
he joined the team at Monmouth.
After a two-inning tryout, in which
he was wild as a March hare. Manager
Egan decided not to take him. The
youngster has the goods nevertheless,
and Tighe intends to develop him when
given the time. Wagner left today for
his home in Marissa, 111., where he
will probably join the semi-professional
ranks again for this season.

Liitt of Rock Island set a new mark
for the high Jump, croesing the bar at
5 feet 5 inches, after a .stubborn fight
with Claar. The Moline boy set the
mark at 5 feet 2 inches last year.
Though Moline was forced to take
a back seat in the totals, Claar, cap
tain of the track team, had the honor
of being among those who established
new records. Claar hurled the discus
104 feet and no one else touched this
mark by three feet. The former rec
ord was 100 feet 8 inches, held by
Hoy of Monmouth.
Yates of Galesburg clipped off 5 sec

covering the distance in 2:02. G.

Tin It ham Star of Meet.
Tlnkham of Galesburg was the star!
performer of the meet and it was
largely through his individual efforts
that his team landed in first place. He
started in three events, the 50, 100 and
220 yard dashes, and finished first In
every one, scoring 15 of the 30 points
made by the team.
Yates of Galesburg was an easy win
ner in the S80 yard run and could have
captured the 440. but he laid back and
"let Jordan, a schoolmate, take vrst.
Yates' time in the half-mile event will
stand for years. It is thought he could
have covered the distance in flat timo,
had he been forced to extend himself.
Payton performed well in the pole
vault over the bar at 10 feet 1 inch.
He, was easily the winner of second
place. Claar was set back In the finals
of the 50 yard dash and then got a
bad start, but he made a game finish.

Clarence Ficken cf this city, who is
attending Grinnell college, is serving
as the regular pitcher for the college
baseball team. He has pitched four
games thus far and while only one of
them was a victory, his twirling was

The Sextons and the Bennetts
played at Island City park yesterday
afternoon and the Bennetts were the
winners by a score of C to 4. The
game was close all the way through,
the pitching of Brien for the Sextons
and Rodenbaugh for the Bennets being
about at an equality. Rodenbough re
ceived the better support, however,
andiwon out. Had Brien received as
good support the result of the game
probably would have been reversed.
Both teams 'scored two runs in the
first inning, mainly on errors, and
then -it was a ba.tle until the finish.
It was the first meeting of the two
teams thus far this year and the losers
are by no means convinced that they
have the inferior team and another
game may result. A fair sized crowd
assembled to witness the contest.
