McGeehan "It is a lucky t-hinpr that it is Armistice Day," said Izzy Kaplan. "If it wasn't for that the cashualities in this baseballing war would be terrible. I seen the inchunctions and tho soupeenas, and they were some? thing awful. It is a good thing that it was stopped before it com ; mcnced to start. "You got to give it a lot of credit to Garry Heymann for what he ] done so that there would be peace. Garry tasted the Scottish whiskey, ; which they was moving it out to Chicago for the battle, and he saw what kind of a war it would be. The minuite he tasted that Scottish whiskey j he turned white, even in the nose, and he said, 'It is terrible. We could not have it a war with this whiskey. We should see the Leak of Nations | or the maggots would he wiped out, and what would become of the profits if there is any?' "Up to that time it looked as though the war would bust and nobody would stop it. Colonel Jacob Ruppe'rtstein marched out to Chicago with 1 his regiment of lawyers and put barbed wire around the Hotel Blockstein. He said that he wouldn't never surrender till they blew up the cellar. | Charley Stonehead and Chon McGraw and Chudge McQueer was in another bote!, and they said they wouldn't surrender neither. Harry ; Frazee, which lie would never surrender, anyhow, said that Benny John . son couldn't bluff him even he would send Louie Mann against him with a army of ectors. Huston Sore, He's Missing the War "All of this time Tillingstein Huston, of the Yankish team of base !.. ers, is lying sick in Roosenblatt's Hospital and he is sore because there is a war and he ain't in if. Tillingstein was passed in the early 1 arl of the war, when he was in a conference with Benny Johnson. He was wery delerish when I seen him and he says to me, 'Tell Jakie not to ; ' the inchunctions till he would see the whites of his eye, and if he should be speaking with Benny Johnson he should not forget his gassing mask, because the enemy is showing no quarter, and they would even be so uncivilized that they would put water in the Scottish whiskey.' "I am getting a whole lot scared then because I am thinking that this baseball war would be worser than the other war, when I was in the signaling corpse. So I went up to Harlem, where I am living, to tell all my,friends that they should get out before they commence to throw the bums into New York City, All over the plice is lawyers marching eut to chcin the two armies. "1 seen Senator Kaplan, which he is my personal lawyer, and he say-, 'Izzy, it : a terrible war. Look at these inchunctions, and they tell me thai the enemy maybe would be? using a lot of have his corpuses. You ? ? be caught in the draft.' I toll him I wouldn't can-, but that I wouldn't go in the signaling corpses no more, but I would go in the lb ry, so 1 w '.:' ? have a wagon to ride around in on account 1 am so wi le around tl." mid lie now that I wouldn't walk to no war, cvfn th y wi ui ; let me in fr< e. So Terrible They Can't Believe It "?. "y are telling me that conditions in Chicago where the was is starting is so terrible thai nobody would belief it. Benny Johnson is ng ;: lot more untimatoes, which means that he would never sur? rend r and the gassing that is going on is so terrible that nobi y o thi stockyards, and the people couldn't find their way home. Harry M. Stevens, which he is supplying the commissary department, : . I me .. t! at lie i- down to his last ten million, ami if the war wou : no would be a ruined man. "Evi rywhcre is people running around and asking, 'Wh re vv< u I the first inchunction be ?hooted?' Others is saying with pale faces, 'Have tl ?;.-?; ened up the Scotch at long ran1:*' yet?' Up at Jakie Rupper tein's : ;. the hards is all busy making munitions, and there is a rum r thai iul I use K erbo her near leer to stop Ben Johnson, if necessary. Son . tat Jakie si ildn't did it. Others is saying that it v i ve Benny Johnson right. The brewery wagons is starting to -oil ou on tin - ;. nt. and Colonel Jakie is giving the order that they sh u . . .'.>.' You <? uld see it wouldn't be no friendly war. "< hust when the brewery wagons was marching around the corner nes it a telegraft from Garry Heymann. It reads, 'Ban Ji lu m is sur? rendered. The Scottish whiskey is so rotten there would be no base :? war.' "Well, anyhow, that is the best way to make it a war. You should ; avi :: the arm ? h be m tl e war star's to commence, instead i :" aft? r is :. he I, and then th re wouldn't ! e no cashualities." V ' i Si V L/AV ID I K&^ -"k;?
