Johnson and Mogridge, who
pitched for the leaguers, and
Scott, Russell and i Wolfgang,
who were loaned to Paso Robles,
and Smith and Douglas, working
for Santa Maria, all stood their
exertion in good shape.
Jacques Fournier, who played
first 'for the Gfeason team, wal-
loped two home runs and a triple.
The park at Santa Maria is hot a
bandbox, like the Paso Robles'
lot, and Fournier's swats -were
, healthy. Ping Bodie also nicked
a four-ply blow.
Kernan and Sylvester, a .couple
of Chicago boys, had good days.
Kernan played second base in

was inaugurated this- year by
Evers on the orderxof President -Murphy,
who declared his hired
men should get down to business -right

the men get down to weight in a
hurry and are in playing shape,
they will be able to take it easy
the last three weeks of the jaunt,
and be in fine trim for the opening"
