tb their fellow townsman. Eddie Clcoite. at the good fortune
defc has befallen him At the' venerable age of at least S3 years.
1 bis tout no-hit. no ryn game of baseball Saturday. The St

rtfllaat In every respect The Frenchman ha* been threaten
milling like this for several year* Last season he got sway
t game against the Yankee* and a three-blow churkfest with
{Soday tn I*ls be held New York to a pair of safeties.

graat pitchers of the day Eddie started out In the Copper
■Cw || lfi#4 *■** for JLWO seasons he was Tiger property, drifting about
'dm* minora without making much of a record for himself In 1907 he was
K« f br*“ Neb He shewed class there and in 19"* he was claimed by
iIE2. While Eddie pitched fine ball for the Red Sox. he never had
IwfiE labk winning games and tn 1912. the White Sox got him for the
jjjm&var price. In lfill he was a big winner In 1914 he ranked high from
unmed run standpoint, but wasn't a game winner. In 1915 he appeared
P*' * a ywmr ago last March. Cieotte went to camp witb the public promise
was gi**«g to get into such condition that he would make the

ML,gf tbs league. Cieotte has earned a place in the hall of fame Thai
KgMeket thereto should come on the occasion of bia 1917 debut makes the
■Slpvement doubly gratifying and significant
A gu—pee of BUI Donovan when he discovered that Cieotte is pitching
'WAHA games this year would have been worth several shekels. Eddie
urallnped the Yanks only seven time* last season- the most complete
S|aiUt7 ovar one club any pitcher In the league could boast.
A Quaker Tally-fwt
V*I|AfiEBALJ fans in Philadelphia—ls any sucb there are these lean

between them Saturday coined 37 base htts worth 49 bases and

B During these hectic moments one Roy Hates, late of the Coast league,
tffgfi now Frank Baker's successor at Mack's torrid turn, horned into the
ihfildf fame with a stunt that was super Baker**W e. Bates smote four hits

The Greatest Play.
\*ou hay* all heard of the great
est play, perhaps Hooper's rate! e*
in the world's series, for instance.
W’ell. this la about a gnater plsy
than any you ever heard of. It Is
a bit of baseball as they play ft in
Euro;*-- the no * -;»* <Ut lar and
dingerous catch of a ball possible,
lo err is to die.
A bit of explanation first: Hand
gienades, the most effective weanon
in trench warfare, are vicious aud
deadly little bombs, usually resem
bling a baceball In i-hap* and site.
They explode by a time fuse which
is Ignited by pullirz a string Just
before they are hurled over into the
en»my's trench The time before
the explosion after the fuse is light
ed Is four seconds The explosion
is tremendous snd the grenade i«
deadly thruout a radius of 20 or 40
fret.
BRICKLAYERS AND
PACKARDS MUST

The Michigan cup competition
e.ti.ong the soccer folks is as iar
f “oni a decision as 1/ there had be»rt

lead at the end of the first half
thanks to the work of Mercer, b;t
Kay tied the count In the second
ression by a fine bit of scoring play
