Dale and Hoffmann, and only let Dale go
instead. This will no doubt be a sur
prise, especially in view of the fact that
the president had singled out Hoffman as
the one who should go, and furthermore.
Dale has probably more admirers among
the base ball cranks than Hoffman. It is
hoped, however, that the move will
prove a wise one.
