FORECAST FOR ROCK I&LAAD. DAVKNTORT. MOLIXE AS1 VICIXmc
Unsettled but generally fair tonight and Tuesday, cooler Tuesday.
Showers and thunderstorms In
the northern Rocky mountain states,
the upper Missouri valley and in mo6t
eections from the Mississippi to the
Atlantic coast have attended areas
of low pressures which are central
over eastern North Dakota and the
eastern portion of the lake region.
These disturbances are also causing
high temperatures over the territory
between the Rockies and the Alle
gheniee. Much lower temperatures
in the northern Rocky mountain sec
tions are resulting from an area of
high pressure that is central on the
north Pacific coast. Owing to the
eastward movement of these condi
tions unsettled, but generally fair
weather Is indicated for thi vicinity
tonight and Tuesday, with cooler

much out of the game as it did. As a
matter of course, the excessive hea:
kept many away from both Saturday's
and yesterday's games, but it demon
strated that it is not always easy to do
Just the right thing regardless of how
hard the directors may attempt to do so.
It is not to be said that the 50-cent
rate has not been very unpopular in
Rock Island, and perhaps in othe
towns, but the local association is not
to blame for this, the league having
adopted the rule as an experiment
feeling assured, that as it nad worked
out alright in a smaller league that
it would prove a success in the Three
Eye. ABOVE SALARY LIMIT.
The various teams of the Three-Eye
have been run at great expense, in
fact beyond the salary limit, for sever
al years, in order to give the patrons a
first class article of ball. Rock Island
has been no exception to the rule in
this respect. WTiile It has not carried
as expensive teams as some of the
other cities. It has nevertheless al
ways had a high priced aggregation,
well above the limit.
A falling off in attendance this sea
son was anticipated by the leagno
magnates. They foresaw that the long
wrangle during the winter had tired
the public and were satisfied that the
results would be apparent at the box
office during the early part of the sea
son, at least. The expenses of litiga
tion had been heavy. All the clues
had high priced players under con
tract and there was no way to mate
rially reduce expenses and at the
same time please the public, and so
the idea of playing double header
itr aoume aamission was tried as a
possible means of helping out.
THIS HITBTS SOME.
Saturday night Secretary Casteel ot
the local club phoned to Manager
Rowland of Dubuque, who had his
team at a Lavenport hotel, reminding
him that Rock Island had saved Du
buQue's bacon twice when the city was
threatened with expulsion from ths
league and asking the up-river leader
if he thought he was repaying the
club in proper coin by stopping acroos
the river when so badly needed here.
Rowland agreed that it did look rather
shabby, but he didn't bring his team
There is no doubt that the practice
inaugurated by Dick Kinsella of hav
ing his Club stop in Davenport while
playing In Rock Island has hurt base
ball somewhat here. Rock Island
needs the presence of the visiting
players, not only because of the price
of their board, but because their being
here helps keep the games before the
public and their absence is a snub to
the city that is keenly felt by many.
Ask any other city in the league how
it would like being thus treated.
Although the attention of the var
ious clubs has been called to this fea
ture and the hardship it entails there
has been little disposition to make a
change. The climax was reached
when Peoria visited here last. The
team was put up at the Harper, but
did not stay there, for the manager of
a Davenport hostelry came here and
induced the Distiller manager to
change to the other side.

The first games of the Amateur Base
ball league schedule were played at the
various diamonds last Saturday after
noon. Good sized crowds were in at
tendance at each of the games, which
were well played in spite ot. the fact
that the weaker teams chanced to be
opposed to the stronger for the first
contest. The Crescenta defeated the
S. R. I. team by a score of 15 to 5, the
Lawndales defeated The Argus 21 to 1,
and the A. O. H. winning from the
Long Views 14 to 1. Next Saturday the
Long Views play The Argus at Exposi

HONOR WON BY SHINSTR0M
Rock Island Boy at Grinnell Fleeted
to Membership in Phi Beta Kappa.
Clayton Shinstrom of this city, who
is just preparing to graduate at Grin
nell college, Grinnell, Iowa, has been
elected to membership in the Phi Beta
Kappa fraternity, the highest honor
society In the colleges of this country.
Excellency in scholarship and charac
ter are the requirements of the Ph:
Beta Kappa. Mr. Shinstrom's case is
a most unusual one, for it is seldom
that an athlete of the standing he at
tained while at Grinnell has the time
to attain a similar excellency in his
various sudles. Mr. Shinstrom was a
member of practically every athletic
team that represented the school, he
having been captain of the football
team last season. He graduated froxj

SHIPS THAT KICK.
Seamen Don't Like Them and Dodge
Them if They Can.
When sailors join a ship almost the
first question asked by each one as he
takes the wheel for the first time is.
"Does she kick?"
Kicking, as It Is called by the sea
men, is due to the action of the water
under the lee of the rudder when the
vessel's stern, which has for a mo
ment been borne skyward on the crest
of a wave, falls back again into the
trough with such terrific force as to
make her tremble fore and aft and
perhaps wrench the wheel from the
grasp of the steersman.
Sometimes it happens that he is
taken unawares and. being unable to
let go In time, is flung right over the
wheel to the other side of the deck,
often receiving serious Injuries. Some
times a man will be pitched right
overboard into the sea. and a recent
case Is known of a man who received
a blow under the chin from one of the
spokes and died a few days later from
In some of the worst types of kick
ers kicking straps are used regularly
in nearly all weathers, and many sail
ors refuse to go to sea in ships which
are known to be confirmed kickers.
Falling Up Out of a Balloon.
If a man falls out of a rising aero
plane or balloon he will not go toward
the earth, but will continue rising Into
the air for an appreciable time. If
the air machine were stopped in its
ascent at the time it could catch the
man as be came down. If the airship
were ascending at the rate of thirty
two feet a second the mau would rise
sixteen feet before beginning to fall
toward the earth. Thus, by reducing
the speed of its ascent, the vessel
might keep by the s'de of the man
and rescue him. The reason why the
man rises is the same as the reason
for a bullet's rising when shot from
a gun into the air both the man and
the bullet are given a velocity upward,
and it takes some time for gravity to
negative that velocity. Harper's

Corporation Directors Want Thslp
