All the News- Honest Opinions SUCCESS NEVER TURNED HEAD OF WALTERJOHNSON Big Fellow Merits Appreciation of Fans All Over the Circuit OTHERS OUGHT TO PROFIT BY EXAMPLE Unlike Other “Stars,’* He Has Managed to Keep His Head Clear of Silly Notions A fiue tribute was paid to Ualiei Johnson, the idol of the Washington team, when close to 20.0UU people, in eluding President Wilson, turned out Saturday, which was Waiter Johnson day at the park. It *** largest crowd that has ever taxed the capac ity of the big ball park Prior to the game elaborate ceremonies were he. . which culminated in the presentation of a silver loving cup tilled to the brim with money I’otnmlssioner Newman, of the District of Colum bia, made the presentation speech. The celebration, which marked the seventh anniversary of Johnson s as sociation with the local club, touched the heart of the big Swede His only responses to the speeches and übeets was a broad smile.

Have you ever aeen roque (pro nounce it rokei played? Roque is not Joque; it is a habit. In every city you may find a amall body of foqu.es who have the roque fever. Roque is big league croquet In the ’7os when baseball had gone to the dogs, croquet threatened to become our national sport, but nobody woque up to it west of Philadelphia. The demand for a national sport was imperative. There was a natural aversion to cricket, so croquet had the call until baseball pulled itself up by its own boot straps and saved the country. Croquet today is played by summer boarders. Roque is the game of mo ques who first learned to play croquet —which explains why the number of playera is limited. Roque is almost as exciting as chess or tatting, but it is guaranteed not to cause apoplexy. Roque requisites are a past of at least a half century: the beard of 1 patriarch helps and insures quiet. No one wants to start the fireworks when someone's grandfHther is making a carom shot. *'/ . THE ideal roque-ist at play.
