funds to equip a team and launch it?"
he replied in answer to a question.
"Say, I'll guarantee that if you can
assure the business men that the peo

hours you can go out and raise every

"There is not a question in my mind

or Illinois. Get into a league? Why,
the return of this city to professional
baseball would be received wth open

"What do I think of baseball from

tell you, young man, that having a

made by a prominent Rock Island
business man today in response to
the query of an Argus man.'
"Ask any business man what he

that if you were to go to some live

"I do not doubt for a minute that the
workingmen of the city want baseball

extends tho hosvitality of the old days
which made it famous, and that
through the years the same spirit of
cordiality and friendliness which the
pioneers knew still remains. He re
counted some of the early reminis

first schoolhouse and how glad he
was, as a boy, when it was burnod
down, becauso it meant an enforced
