Bates is to the National league
what Tris Speaker is to the Ameri

nearer second than any- other Na

Speaker, killing off many line drives

Bates, of course, plays the batter.
He goes further back for Larry
Doyle than for Miller Huggins, but

Because of his ability to. go back,
Bates last year made one of .the
greatest, catches ever seen on . the
Chicago Cubs' field. He went to the.
Cub clubhouse and pulled down a
drive by Zimmerman. Previous
drives to. the same place by Heinie,

Players who saw the catch were
dumbfounded when they realized the
ground Bates covered to get the ball.
And Bate's is the-fellow they called
"a bone" in Philadelphia.
She's much more important than presidents are
Or other officials of state;
In. HER .hands is power to make or to mar
Our national future and fate;
The men of tomorrow are hers forTtoday ....
To counsel and pilot, and guide
With patience and love she will show them tie way
To lives that are worthy of pride.
She is molding the thought of the girls and the boys
To whom we must leave our 'tomorrows;
She learns of their every-day pleasures and joys
And shares in their pains and their sorrows; r
The. youth of the country' are put-in her care
( To learn of the way they should go;
She gives them her best and a little to, spare '--Which
only the children can know. -
We know how she works and how nobly she serves
With all of her souland her heart,
Devoting her strength and her health and her nerves. '
y To playing her excellent part,
And so it's our pleasure and even our boast
The way we are paying our debts,
Since we give her a salary equal (almost) ;
To that which the janitor gets. .
Secretary Daniels doesn't drink, der did Woodrow put him at the
smoke, chew or swear. What in thun- of the navy for, anyhow?
