If they could only count the score
which was made by them last evening
as their contribution to the state tour
nament at Chicago, the Rock Island
quintet which is entered in the state
events would be certain of copping
a big slice of the change which has
been posted for high scores. Last
night the local team rolled against an
other team at the Rock Island club al
leys. Needless to say, the team which
is entered in the tournament won and
by a good, big margin, too. The total
cumber of pins secured by the local
team was 2,0n9. which is some high
score. The biggest game .was 1,019,
and not an error was made in it. The!
other games were 905 and 9S6. In the

Springfield. April 2.". Elmer "Hick
ory'1 Johnson, former star catcher and
fence buster of the Springfield club
of the Three-I league, had but a brief
carter In the major leagues. Johnson
will this season wear the uniform of
the Omaha club of the Western league,
the deal whereby the heavy hitter
goes to that organization having been
clcsvl jesterday by "Dick" Kinsella.
Omaha is said to have paid $1,500 for
Johnsoe. Johnson began his league
career with Taylorville of the Kitty
league, and was purchased from that
club by Kinsella, then president of
the Springfield Baseball association.
Johnson was a terror to the pitchers
of the Three-I and his heavy stick
was responsible for many of the vic
tories of the local team. While he
was handy with the stick, "Hickory"
wa3 also a steady and reliable back
stop, but was considered too slow in
"I haven't seen any good ban
played this spring," says Harry Lord
of the Chicago White Sox. "The
weather has been all against any
real stuff and all the men have
simply been trying to go through the
movements of playing. The grounds
have been bad and drives that have
gone for hits would be peaches later
on. Half the players are suffering with
colds and when a man is In that con
dition, he cannot do himself justice,
either mentally or mechanically. I
don't look for any big league base
ball until the weather warms up and
the olavers act Into condition."
base running for a berth with the
majors. Decatur and Springfield were
both negotiating for the services of a
catcher, but the Omaha club was giv
en first call. When the Commodores
disbanded last year, Johnson was sold
to New York. McGraw had no place
for the big fellow with Wilson, Meyers
and Hartley on the job, and a deal
was made for his transfer to the Car
dinals. Former associates and friends
of Johnson are confident he will make
good with Omaha.

Getting a safe lead in the first few
Innings, the high school junior
class team won the second
game of the boys' Inter-class
baseball tournament yesterday af
ternoon at Exposition park from
the seniors by a score of 8 to 4. Upon
mutual agreement but seven innings
were played, though they had plenty
of time to finish out the game before
darkness. The seniors had not beer
together before yesterday and this
probably accounts for the trimming
administered them, though the Jun
iors have had but little practice. The
Juniors had last year's battery work
ing for them, Brough and Clemann,
which was a great aid, though Empke
and Kittilsen did effective work on
the mound for the seniors. As a re
sult of the game the seniors will bat
tle with the sophomores tomorrow
afternoon while the freshmen and
juniors will play Monday for the
FIRST CLASS PROMIXEXT.
The freshmen have faired well in
athletics this year, having captured
first place in the basketball tourney
and cross country run and should
they triumph over the juniors Monday
they will have had more than their
share of honors. They also feel con
fident that they can make a good
showing tomorrow morning in the Inter-class
track meet and though It
is hardly probably that they will get
first position, It Is evident that they
will make the other competitors hus
tle to beat them out
GAME STARTS SLOW.
A stiff wind was blowing from the
west during yesterday's ball game and
it greatly puzzled the outfielders in
Judging flies. The Juniors were first
to bat and went out in easy fashion,
but found their gait in the next ses
sion and sent two men across the
plate. Three hits were registered,
two of which were on the scratch or
der, and one bae on balls, coupled
with three stolen bases, netted the
runs. In the third they went out one,
two, three, after Klove had reached
first on an error. The seniors made
their first tally in their half of this
Inning. Galvln and Empke drew
passes, but the next two up struck
out and it looked as though they
would not score, when Kittilsen de
livered a timely single to right and
Galvln raced home. Empke was
caught out a moment later at the
plate, thus ending the Inning. The
juniors added three more in the fol
lowing inning on but one hit, while
they scored three In the fifth. In
this inning they pounded the ball
hard. Brough beat out an Infield hit
and scored on Wright's two-sacker
after Smith had fanned. Eckhardt
popped one over the plate which
lownsan caugnt, tnen Held hit one
on the nose and lifted It far into right
center for two bases. Wright scored
and Reid came home a minute later
on an infield error. Klove grounded
out, Empke to Behnarcann and ended
the scoring for the Juniors. Kittil
sen replaced Empke in the box and
held the Juniors in the last two in
After the third the seniors failed
to reach first until the sixth when
they rallied and pushed three scores
across the plate. Behnamann filed
out to left but Budeller walked on
four wide ones, Kittilsen singled and
Townsan doubled into far right,
bringing home Budelier and Kittil
sen. Townsan scored on an error by
Kone and Stuhr and Pratt fanned
out. Neither side scored in the sev
enth. The score:
