THE BRITISH "FLYING CORPS."
The recent successes scored by tha allies In the vicinity of Paris have been due in large measure to the British airmen. These intrepid navi

the British and French forces. This photo was taken near the scene or a reat battle in which these aircraft played a prominent role. The British cen

Cub Game Postponed.
Pittsburgh. Sept. 12. Just why'the
Pirate-Cub game scheduled for yes
terday, was called off is not altogether
clear, although it was possibly in the
hope that a bargain event today would
be productive of a crowd. The at
tendance at the Wednesday and Thurs
day games was extremely smalL Some
rain fell during the afternoon, but not
enough to produce any mud. however,
there was a cold raw wind blowing
and shortly after 2 o'clock the game
The reported effort of President
Thomas to find a new manager in In
dianapolis formed a topic of conversa
tion in the Cub camp, but none of
those interested w ould make any com
ment. Pittsburgh fans fail to see way
Tommy Leach is not being considered
when tbe talk drifts toward a man
ager. The Cubs had a fine chance to close
up the gap which separated them from
first place, but failed, and today are
five full games behind Boston and two
and a half games behind New York.
Erratic pitching has been the cause.
Many Former Islanders Leading
Ball Clubs in Various
Probably no other city in minor
haspha'l has furnished a larger
number of managers from the ranks
of its players than has Rock island.
Vr Ipbb than seven members of one
club .are now, or have been this sea
son, leading teams in different cir
cuits while one. Joe Berger. Is with
the White Sox. These are Pete Lis
ter. Billy Neal and Dan O'Leary In the
Three-Eye. Christy Wilson in the
Eastern, Dow Vandlne in the Kitty.
George Manusch in the Central and
Louis Cook in the Virginia.
Other former players who are still
active In managerial capacities are
Red Doom or the Philadelphia Na
tionals. Peachy Graham of th9 West
ern league. Jay Andrews and Belden
Hill of the Central. Joe Cantillon of
the American association and Hunter
Hill of the Texas league.
BIG BILL" LEADING
IN HOME RUN DRIVES
"Big Bill' Jacobsen's hitting has
been a feature in the Southern league
this year. The tall former Islander,
who Is playing with Chattanooga, has
been sold to Detroit for delivery at
the close of the season. Bill's batthig
average Sept. 1 was .310 and he led
the league in home runs and three
baggers. Of the former he had se
cured 12 and of the latter 16. He had
made 165 bits and his work in out
fleli was proclaimed as having been
of a sensational order.

DO SPLENDID WORK FOR
HIGH SCHOOL TO
Keith Dooley and Jack Faridon
Will Return to School
FOOTBALL PROSPECTS BOOM
With Plenty of Talent Outlook for De
feat of Davenport Is
For the last week it has bee rumor
ed that Keith Dooley, the star end of
the Independent football team of last
year, and John Paridon, one of the
fastest centers In the state, will re
turn to high school this year and play
with the locals but this could not be
verified until last evening, when both
Paridon a'ad Dooley stated to a repre
sentative of The Argus that they
would return to school Monday and
would report for practice Monday eve
ning. The students of the high school and
followers of the game w ill be overjoy
ed to hear that they intend to return.
Both -will be eligible to play high school
games, as they did not accept any
money from the Independe u; last year
because they expected to go back to
school this year and did not want to
be rated as professionals. The rules
of all schools are that professional
football players cannot play on school
teams and as both-boys expected to
go to some school this year they re
fused to take money for their work.
Have Fast Team. .
The- local high school will have the
fastest eleven that it has had since
the 1911 team won state championship.
The team started practicing Wednes
day evening and a large number of
graduates and fans of the school have
been out to watch them play and to
get a look at "Smoke" Butler, the col
ored youth. The motto from the start
in "Beat Davenport.''

WOUND LEADS TO ARREST
Suspected Burglar Is Caught In a Phil
Philadelphia. Traced by a 'wound
said to have been received when a po
liceman shot at him as he fled after a
burlary, Daniel Shields was arrested
at St. Agnes' hospital here, where he
had been tinder treatment for the In
jury. At the Nineteenth district sta
tion house the man was recognized by
Lieutenant Bausewine as a prisoner he
had taken 18 years ago, the charge
then being that he had .robbed a sa
loon. Recently the lieutenant received
word that a man wanted for burglary
in New York state was believed to be
at one of the hospitals of this city,
having been shot by a policeman who
pursued him after the crime. Shields,
it was learned, had been going to the
hospital for several weeks to be treat
ed, but refused to stay at the institu
tion until complete recovery. The ar
rest was made by Sergeant Hollock
and a detail of policemen after the
final treatment hal been given.
The prisoner contends that he Is not
the man wanted, and says he rfecelved
the wound in his breast in a mishap
while at work In New York.

at First Meeting at Rock
HAVE A NEW QUARTERBACK
Three Strong Men Out to Fill Place
Vacated by Ernest MacManus
The Rock Island Independent foot
ball eleven held Its first meeting last
evening at the Rock .Island house and
laid plans for this season. It ai de
cided to told its first practice tomor
row morning at the Island City park,
and the boys will practice about four
times la week until the first game Is
played, after which they will practice
two evenings a week.
About twenty-five players reported
last evening, and ithe fans -will be sur
prised at the fast eleven which the
locals will have this season. This year
they expect to have a team which, will
defeat anything in (the middle west.
Although the locals have a record
which can hardly be beaten, as they
never lost a game since they organ-,
ized, and . have only been Scored on
twice, they expect to make this rec
ord better this season.
The candidates who reported at the
meeting last evening are: Pat Sexton.
Ted Davenport, Frank Smith, Charlie
McGlnnis, Heinle Hodson, Tim Con
nolly, Louis Hofer, Joe Smith, Grover
Auld. Ben Willhite. Harry Behnamann,

(captain). Bill "Spider" Whlsler.

Games for the year have- been se
cured with the Rockford Badgers, Ev-'
anston, champions of the Chicago

seasons, Peoria Socials, Spring Valley,
Moline Olympics, Moline Redmen and
Columbus Junction. The first game
will be played Sunday, Oct. .with

Have Fast Quarterbacks.
For a time It was thought that the
locals would be short on the quarter
back position this year, -as Ernest
MacManus has left the locals and will
play -with their rivals, the Moline Red
men, but there are ' three candidates -out
for this position who are fast, and
either one will make a good man In
this position. Bill Kuehner, who played
on the champion Evanston team as
quarterback for two years' nd who
came to Rock Island last spring. Is
one of the candidates. He is fast on.
his feet, and can manage a team in
tight places and bring them out on
top if ithey will play behind him. Be
sides this man they bave Charlie Mc-'
Ginnis, who played with the eleven
last year for a while and made many
Whlsler With Locals.
Will "Spider" Whisler, who was per
haps the fastest halfback that the lo
cal nigh school has had, and who
played with them last year, will also
be with the locals this season. He
has been offered a- .position with the
Redmen, which is said to be a better
one than the locals are In a position
to give, but he has decided to stay with
his home team, no matter what price
the rival eleven bas to ofTer. Wblsler
says he would a great deal rather play
for hla home town at no salary than
with a rival team.
Joe Smith Reports.
Jo j Smith, who was manager of the
Independents when they were organ
ized, will be with the team this yeur.
He expected to play end, and will no
doubt make a good man for this posi
tion. War Cripples Iowa.
