against him has aroused the fans to
a point where they want to see him

The Cross Country baseball team,
, which some years ago was counted
among the best independent semi-pro

organized under the management of
' Chris Naab. Manager Naab has ai

and his clowning is clean and whole

a bin htuid. Dyer and Oyer provide
a lot of fun on the flying rings. The

and if actual count is made of the

And then we have some lady ath
letes, fresh from Europe, who label
themselves the Idanlas iroupe. Two
of the ladies emirate the stunts of
the famous Mr. Atlas by standing on
pedestals and shouldering an electric
light trapeze beam, while the others
perform various athletic stunts. The
act is pret'ily staged. A portly Teu

the course of the athletic carnival.
