THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. MOXDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1913.
EGG BUYER PILOTS
TEAM TO VICTORY
Eggs are bought by the dozen.
Bruner Is an egg buyer. As captain
of Rock Island Masonic lodge, Bruner
assumed the right to dictate the run
getting in Saturday's game, which
ended with Canedy holding the short
end of the score. The runs were
made in dozen lota and altogether
there were Just three doaen of them
Bruner & Co. grabbed off two doaen
and "Shorty" Canedy took the
"lc-avin's." In other words, the fina;
score was 24 to 12, all of which con
strains one to remark that the tabu
lation remotely resembles the tidings
from a bush league. Canedy's famous
utring ball failed to work, owing to the
fact that he forgot to bring string
. along with him. Bruner's successful
reign on the slab and the lack of hits
against him may be attributed entire
ly to the fact that at no time during
the game did he get tha bail within
four feet of the plate, and naturally
blngles were as scarce as champagne
bottles in the home of a teamster.
Trio lodge has sentenced Canedy to
a week's banishment, during which
time "Shorty" will commune with no
mortal. He has albo been directed to
purchase a new sartorial creation of
sack cloth and ashes.
WHITE HOSE WILL
, TRAIN ON THE COAST
The White Sox will train In Cali
fornia next spring. This was assured
yesterday when final arrangements
for the trip were completed. The
exact spot has not been picked, but
Paso Hoblt3, the health resort visited
lam spring, will most likely attract
'the major leaguers again.
Originally Commy was booked to
train there for three years, but a hitch
occurred, and for a while It looked as
though a new camp would be picked.
Callahan figured that Hot Springs.
Ark., would be a good place to take
the athletes, but he never considered
this very seriously.
The round-the-world tour will not
wind until after the training trip be-
cms, uui jvia uieason win direct at
.r in tlie camp. As only six or
seven athletes intend to make the tour
the spring squad will be as big as
tisual right from the start. The ath
lfies making the round-the-world trip
will proceed to California as soon as
the long Jaunt winds up.
DOPE ON BERGER AND
EVERS IN CIVIL WAR
Chicago, Sept. 29. Comparisons In
baufball mean nothing beyond what
a player ban already done. What the
future holds for that particular man
is bryor.d human conception. An ar
gument is easily produced, however,
by duelling on the respective merits of
ar.y two individuals. In this, the initial
comparison, Manager Evers of the
Cubs will stand beside Berger of the
Fox. the pair being slated fcr duty
at the keystone sack In the coming
city series battles.
This position Is one of the two In
field berths where the Cubs may be
tccorded an edge over the South Sid
ers. The difference is slight, how
ever, and may Dot be noticed in the
coming games, while again Evers may
more than show his superiority over
Berger as an all-around valuable man
for that particular post. Experience
covering a long term U where Cvers
will have some advantage, and it may
be that nothing else will count.
Evers Is admittedly a far better
bitter than Berger. The Cub pilot Is
hanging around the .270 mark, while
the Sox youngster is a weak sister
with .215 or thereabouts. Evers, how
ever, must carry the strain of a man
ager s role for the first time with a
title at stake. This Is bound to play a
big part In bis effectiveness against
the old Cub rivals. With the breaks
going against him, It Is liable not only
to utiect hi batting, but fielding as
In the field Berger Is probably as
consistent a worker as the West Side
ruanager. Evers may go farther to his
right for a batted ball, but Berger is
Ins equal in racing to the opposite
side. At getting the ball away quickly
both men ere above the average. For
coexistent fielding Berger has prob
ably done better work by actual aver
npe since he displaced Rath as a reg
ular. Tliis means nothing, however,
as cold f gures do not take Into consid
eration the kinds of chances accepted.
On the bases Evers Is the better
man of the pair. He Is not fast, but
H.tkt is slow. The latter Is also
shy on alertness when on the paths.
Tor work at the bat. other than the
spanking out of hits, Evers also has
a shade. He possesses the happy fac
u'.ty of dumping hits behind third base,
i 'though many dispute the possibilities
of any piayer being able to place hits
Kvers la a left-handed hitter, so in
ttils respect Berger will have the ad
v.intace against southpaw pitching.
If fmperamrnts were to be taken
Into the argument Evers would have
to drop out. Berger is a happy-go-lucky
s Jul, perfects contented to take urn
plies and such as Ihey come. Evers
needs no advertising in this respect.
If he goes throuh the series without
inc. I ring the enmity of "Silk"
OIough!in, the Cub pilot will have
established a remarkable record.

WILSON DEFIES CRITICS;
SEES BAREFOOT DANCES
Washington. Sept. 29. President
Wilson saw Lady Constance Stewart
Richardson, Mine. Polaire and Ger
trude Hoffman dance at the Belasco
theatre Saturday night in the face of
adverse criticism- fcy the Washington
papers after the opening performance
Thursday night, when It was reported
as being "very, very nude."
Some of the dancing was of the
barefooted variety, particularly that
of Lady Constance, who, wrapped in
what looked like the morning mist
imitated gracefully the sensations of
the world as it wakes to the break
ing dawn. Mme. Polaire danced with
an Apache and Gertrude Hoffman was
supported by young women wno went
in swimming on the stage in akin
tight bathing suits minus skirt.
Miss Hoffman and her barefoot
mermaids caused the president em
harassment. Some ten or tweive of
the chorus appeared with mirrors
which threw dazzling reflections of a
'powerful light into the audience. The
girls directed their lights toward the
president until he raised a program
to shield bis eyes.
The president was heartily applaud-
j ed when the audience recogniicd him
jin the mirror "er-otHst." He took
the incident good naturedly and smil-
