"'is a fact Zim was promised the

fans feel that with him goes the
hope of a one-two-three finish
next year.
Evers will probably make good,
but Chance is a proven winner. ,
Chance has received five offers
to manage big league clubs, four
in the National and one in the
American. He did not consider
any of them, as he believes Mur
phy wishes to trade him to one
of these clubs and secure material
to strengthen some holes in the
West Side. Chance does not want
to take hold of a team that weak
ened itself securing him. He is
willing to consider the offers if
Murphy will sell him outright.
Otherwise he will remain the
property of the Cubs.
Peculiar that the American
leue never has any messes like
these in St. Louis, Philadelphia
and Chicago. But the American
Jeague has no Murphy or Fogel.
Maybe the National won t have
any Fogel in a month. Murphy
