meant o instill terror info the heattii

Besides proving conclusively that
he did net have the first require
ment of a real umpire, he offended
grievously by filling the air with a
string of curses which reached the
ears of many of the women who
were filing out of the grandstand
exit. Many fans heard the remarks
and they were not a little Incensed.
When Guthrie appeared back of the
J grandstand to change his shoes in the

j looked as though the precedent of
I mobbing an umpire would be estab
