OBSERVATIONS There Isn't anything particularly strange In the fact that the Cubans have suddenly soured on the American ball teams, which have made winter trips there for sev- No Wonder era] years. Cubans Cubans are, perhaps, the are Sore. same kind of fans that are Ameri cans, and when their team was beateu every day by the Athletics the at tendance fell off and interest died, the promoters naturally developed cold feet and canceled other engagements. Bo long as the Cubans could make a good showing against the American teams the game proved a profitable one. But Mack’s men went there to win and attended strictly to buslneHS, nlth the result that for a time at lease Invasion of Cuba by our ball teams will not be a pajrlng venture. American baseball enthusiasts do rot take kindly to a losing team, and since the Cubans were educated In the game by Americans It is not sur prising that they, too, should quit on a loser.
