Waterloo Scribe Suggests Cir
cuit Change to Permit C
GIVE BOOSTERS A PLACE
Lieave Three-Eye and Go With Cedar
Rapids and Dubuque to Iowa
The Waterloo Reporter has a plan
to let that city out of the difficulty it
faces in the threatened ousting from
the Three-Eye league, and that Is to
join the Central association, at the
same time making other changes in
that circuit to permit of raising it to
Class C The Reporter says:
"In case the Tearney-Kinsella-Beh-rlng
coalition put through their much
ly planned coup, two courses for red
ress are left open to the local associ
ation. The first is to lay the matter
hefore the national board of arbitra
tion. Members of this the court of
last resort in the baseball world
have given local men to understand
that the contemplated action is con
trary to baseball laws and illegal. The
board, if it decided in favor of Water
lee and Dubuque, could order the two
cities back in the circuit, and if the
league refused to obey the circuit
would be outlawed. The local men
could also appeal to the federal courts.
Such a move saved Dubuque a couple
of years ago and might again.
The Other Solution.
"The heads of the Central associa
tion might reorganize thai circuit
and by taking advantage of the Three
Eye turmoil be able to boost the classi
fication of tl at league from D to C.
This could be done by dropping Hanni
bal, Galesburg and Monmouth and sub
stituting Waterloo and Dubuque the
canned Three-Eye cities and also vot
ing in Cedar Rapids and Muscatine.
The aggregate popuhiMon of the cir
cuit would be ovpt 200,if::i and would
In addition to the cities mentioned
above include Burlington. Kewanee,
Ottumwa and Keokuk.''

Belden Hill, who controls everything
connected with baseball at Cedar Rap
ids, says his town wU! rot join the
Central unless Waterloo is also taken
in. The rivalry between those two
cities is something akin to that be
tween Rock Island and Davenport, and
Hill figures that with both cities in the
same circuit the Rabbits would draw
better than ever before.
made the race with Chicago interest
ing. We will have to take our hats off
again to Pa Hill of Cedar Rapids. Ed
die Sweeney, catcher for the New York
Americans, says that Russell Ford,
whom Hill "educated, is now, or will be
the greatest pitcher in the world.
Sweeney says that Russ now has ev
erything that Matthewson has and
some things the king pin in the Na
tional league staff has not. Ford used
to have lots of steam in the days that
he performed at the Island City park,
but we usually managed to gather a
few hits off him.
Buck, the pitcher secured by Dan
ville from Troy, N. Y.. won nine games
and lost IS last season. It is claimed,
however, that he suffered from poor sup
port and that his work is really high
class. Manager McCarthy is much
pleased with Voix, the shortstop secur
ed from Lexington, Ky., who fielded
and hit well last season.
Dick Klnsella tells the Springfield
papers that the adjourned meeting of
the Three-Eye league will be held at
Chicago Jan. 3. and so it is presumed
President Tearney will shortly be send
ing cut a call in accordance with this
arrangement. Of conrseJt s all right
for Dick to set the date, but he ought,
for the sake of form, at least let the
president make the first announcement.

Rock Island high school's basketball

legians are conceded the victory, as
they have practically the same quintet
which won fame for the college last
year by defeating the University of Il
linois team in such a handy manner.
On the other hand, the local team will
contain but two of Inst year's players
and neither of them was regular men.
The result is that the team is a most
inexperienced and untried one. The
probable lineup of the local boys is:
Mclntyre and Behuamann, forwards;
Hughes or Tremaun, center, an -J Wil

The interclass tournament v. ill be
brought to a close with the games to
night and Tuesday. Each tam has
two games to pla and the seniors
have a lead of one came. Tonight the
juniors and seniors dash in the game

seniors will have the rag cinched, and
by losing they will let the juniors tie
them. Tuesday the seniors meet the
freshmen and the juniors play the

who aie fainii.'ar with matters of
this sort will at once recognize this
fact by glancing through the list
which contains such names as that
of the Borsini troupe, the Eugene
trio, the Three Macartes, La Belle
Helen, the Randolphs, the Fassio
troupe, the Four Flying Banvards,
Morris & Morris, Leon Morris
ponies, John Hedge and others. The
Borsinis are the most sensational
aerialists that ever crossed the At
lantic. The Eugene trio are
Europe's premier acrobats. The
Three Macartes are absolute em
presses of the high wire. La Belle
Helene. a famous French beauty, is
now exhibiting for the first time in
America her troupe of trained gray
hounds. The Randolphs are gro
tesque comedians from the London
Alhambra. The Fassios are Aus
trian gymnasts and equilibrists with
a repertoire of wonderful feats. The)
uanvarus are tne originators of all
that is modern in aerial acrobatics.
Morris & Morris are European bur
lesquers. John Hedge is a comed
ian.1 Morris' ponies, the most won
derful Lilliputian horses before thei
public, and so on all through the!

WOODRUFF AS "GENIUS." j
"The Genius" is more suited to
Henry Woodruff than is the modern j
musical comedy in which he ha3 j
been appearing as the high-tooted ;
and spangled hero supposedly pes-'
sessing a voice to melt the hearts'
cf the girls. Nat Goodwin it was j
who first gave us "The Genius." But
Goodwin omitted the songs in fact j
these have been interpolated at the :
request of Woodruff. It's not a bad i
idea to introduce a vocal number j
here and there during the perform-!
ance of a play of the lighter vpin, j
such as is "The Genius," but Mr. i
Woodruff ought to bring forward '
others than himself to provide this'
part of the entertainment. He never
could sing, and assuredly his voice
is not improving with his years.
Woodruff is delightful in comedy,
having good looks, grace and real J
Tun-making ability. There is not
much to "The Genius" as a play,
yet. it is diverting, and gives Mr.
wishes for fur displaying his tal
ents. He has a splendid supporting
company, principal among whom
are Miss Madge Kennedy. Herman
Hirschberg. Theodore A. Doucet,
Charles Wellsiey. Frank Dekum.
