maiden appearance with the Decatur
gang at Dubuque, hit the "bull" sign
on his first trip to the plate and

same, ending it.
The last inning was easy, the only
feature being the pinch hitting of
McNeely, understudying Mr. Harper.

in the first inninz for which "Con"

good control. With one gone Lynch
singled. He was given the hit and
run sign, which was detected by the
Sox, and Donley was flagged for a
waste ball. Instead of that he grooved
the pill. Reed had started towards

It is certainly queer how Daven

On the road they hit the dumps and
bumps good and bard, and then on i
the home grounds they make up for
the losses and then some. However,
nobody is sympathizing with Spring

Down at Danville the bugs are just

Steve Cusack, Three-I arbiter, well
known to local fans, seems to be get
ting worse than ever this season, and
various sport writers around the wheel
are unanimous in their condemnation.
President Al Tearney, whose sole in
terest in the league seems to end with
the drawing of his salary, has turned
a deaf ear to all the "kicks" and lets
things ramble on. The following from
the Quincy Herald is a fair sample
of the opinions being expressed:
"Of all the rotten umpires, Steve Cu
sack is entitled to the price as it is
an absolute certainty that no one
could Jae any worse. The arbiter
now doing duty at league park truly
lives up to his name of "Blind Steve"
and the gent who applied the mon
icker surely hit the nail on the head.
Prexy Tearney is evidently under
some obligation to Steve, as he keeps
on signing him up each, season and i
yea i after year Steve keeps on get
ting worse. And the Quincy fans are
not alone in their protests, as the
knocking has been going on around
th.e circuit all season and it is a mys
tery how he keeps on drawing pay
as -an umpire.
"Tearney seems to have but little
conception of the duties of an umpire
and keeps on dishing up undesirable
material every season, but seems to
have gathered together . an unusual
bunch this year as the howls have
come forth thick and fast. Cusack

STAR SOUTHPAW TO
BECOME WHITE SOCK
Winona. Minn., Aug. 11. Southpaw
.Ralph Bell has been establishing a new
record for baseball In this section. He
has won 15 straight for Winona in
the Northern league. The' 21-year-old
youngster is the property of the St.
Joseph oiub under aa optional con
tract. According to reliable informa
tion Bell will go direct from Winona
to the Chicago White Sox. Charles
! Golvin was called out at second in
the third when it was apparent to
everyone in the stands that he had
reached the bag ahead of the ball.
Vogel, the Danville second baseman,
said after the game that he did not
touch him by at least three feet. Bil
lings beat out a hit in the eighth, but
was promptly ruled out. Staley was
called out at third when he was easily
safe, but the "climax of the day came
on the final decisions of the game.
"Runners were tn second and third
snd Conger had two and two on him
when Neal threw a low one. The ball
hit the rubber and bounded into the
air higher than Erloffs head and fell
in front of the plate by a few inches.
It was a ball to everyone who saw it,
out Cusack immediately called Con
ger out, declaring the play a third
strike. .After his rank decisions- in
the early part of the game, the lans
hooted and hissed in great style, but
Steve proceeded to get even by re
fusing to use his hands in calling
balls and strikes and the fans were
unable to tell what was on the bat
ter until he either hit the ball or re
tired to the bench. Some class to an
uraps like that! It's a cinch that
Tearney could find better material
right here in the Soldiers' home than
some of the men now drawing down
good money as umpires."
Some enraged fan threw a pop bottle
at Cusack as ho was leaving the fleld
at the conclusion of the game. The
missile barely missed Steve's head, bat
at that he should consider himself
lucky it was not worse.
Gus Pappas won the benefit wrest

Stewart was not an easy mark for

CUB PINCH HITTER
STILL HOLDS BERTH!
Manager Evers was very much sur
prised yesterday when he saw in, the
local papers that Wilbur Good had
been released to Indianapolis by the
Cubs. Evers declared there was no
truth in the statement and as proof
he pointed to Good sitting in the
smoking compartment of the train that
carried the Cubs to Boston last night.
Evers says that there is no chance
of Good leaving the Cubs, as he fig
ures that the pinch hitter is fast
developing into one of the best out
fielders In the business. The Cub man
ager further stated that if waivers had Schroeder, cf
been asked on Good It was done with
out his knowledge.
