Vincent Astor would like to be a
newspaper reporter-News item.
We who must toil have been denied
The pleasures yotu indulge in Vint;
But, oh, the gladness and the pride
Of seeing one's own stuff in print!
'Tis little wonder that you yearn
To turn from foolish, futile sport,
..nd start in as a cb to earn
The glory they have who report.
In fancy we can see you now,
With book and pencil, as you run
To learn just why and find out how
The fearful riot was begun;
In fancy, too, we piqture you,
Ejected by the millionaire,
But having gained the interview
For which you trailed him to his
And in imagination we
Behold you in your evening duds,
Let into high society
And mingling with the blushing
We hear the fat old men relate
Their ancient stories, stale and flat,
And then, in whispers, murmur:
Now please don't publish that!"
Ah, Vincent, have you ever thought
Of dangers that reporters face
'Tis not like sailing on a yacht
Serenely forth from place to place.
The insults of the proud and rich,
The high official's cold contempt,
These are among the things from
Reporters never are exempt.
The star reporter does not rise
By easy bounds to eminence;
He must be patient, faithful, wise,
Alert, corageous and intense;
To him ever must be denied
The pleasure you engage in, Vint
But, oh, the triumph and the pride
Of seeing one's own stuff in print.
Joe Schlossberg broke into league
ball Saturday. After Tobin, who was
playing at shortstop, had kicked two
grounders Blank sent him to the
bench and put Joe in his place. The
bat boy didn't have any fielding
chances nor any opportunity to show
his worth with a warclub, but he
stood with the highlanders, attired in
an official unle. "I wasn't a bit
scared," he says. "I didn't have time
to get nervous. I wish Roberts had
hit the ball at me."

F. T. Ferguson, under whose eagle

this contribution from Portland:
Mr. Bones: "If you, 'Mr. Tambo,
were in the bottom of a deep pit, with
walls so steep that you couldn't pos
sibly climb out, and in there with you
were three wild animals, a bear, a lion
and a bull, you'd think you were in
somewhat of a fix, wouldn't you?"
Mr. Tambo: "I certainly would."
Mr. Bones: "Suppose, then, that
you had a double-barreled gun, with
two shots in it and that you were in
this pit with the three wild animals.
Suppose that the bull was charging
straight at you, which of the three
wild animals would you shoot, having
but two shots at your disposal?"
Mr. Tambo: "Why, I'd shoot be
bull first, Mir. Bones."
Mr. Bones: '.Oh, no, Mr. Tambo, that
would be wrong. You should shoot
the other two first, for you can always
'shoot the bull.'"
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Um-pah,
the silver-voiced tenor, will now
sing "She Used to Like to 'Play the
Harp, But She Wasn't."
This week con'es the weeding out
and with it a lot of misery for Man
ager Blankenship. No matter whom
he picks for the cannery some of the
fans will roar. One of the character
Istics of the rabid fan is that he
knows more about running the team
than anyone else.
That race between Fred Carman of
the Highlanders and Jimmy Brown
of the varsity will probably come off
this week when tlank's men meet the
collegians. It will be a race worth
watching, for both men are faster
than the ordinary sprinter.

spondents: "While, the judges were
