Marquad has had an up and down
year, After a winter in vaudeville the
Rube rounded to condition slowly.
Gradually he developed until, in July
and August, he was the Marquard of
last year. But the last two weeks
have seen a retrograde movement.
He won his game in Pittsburgh last
week, but was batted hard.
Yesterday against the Cubs he al
lowed few hits four, to be exact
and passed one man in seven Innings.
But he seemed to lack the reserve
power when the Cubs attacked. Two
hits and a sacrifice in the first inning
gave the home talent one run; an

the seventh counted two more and
finished th!e Rube. Between the first

its dazzling break. Without these as
sets he is useless, for the brain that
surmounts his wry neck is not that

The absence of Plank will be a sad
blow to Philadelphia fans who have
watched his work for years. Eddie is

Marquard's case is different The
Rube is comparatively young, and
may- even "return" in time for the
world's series. He is bound to be
back next year.
