In proof of this, the Athletics and
Giants, with Davis and Robinson,

White Sox "Kid" Gleason discovered
"Lefty" Russell and made "Buck"
Weaver a real ballplayer.
Last season Jim Burke managed
the Ft. Wayne club of the Central
League, to which several Tiger kit
tens were farmed. These men claim
they learned more real baseball in a

Burke as a major league player was
unfortunate enough to close his ca
reer in St. Louis. He has managed
several minor league teams and has
been scouting every year for Detroit.
With his experience Burke should
prove valuable. He lacks the tem
perament of a first-class manager,
being inclined to explode without ex
cuse, doing his team more harm than
good. But when it comes to knowing
baseball inside-out, no one has a

When Detroit goes to Gulfport next
spring Burke will have charge of the
recruits, giving them as much atten

and when the club divides for the
trip north he will have charge of the

COOKS EXPLAIN HOW THEY
STAND ON LIQUOR QUESTION
Editor Day Book:
We, the hotel and restaurant em
ployes representing the organized la
bor movement of Chicago and par
ticularly th,e Chicago Cooks' and Pas-
try Cooks' Union, Local 865, desire
to make our positfon clear as to our
attitude toward the coming liquor
We see in the public press that the
Anti-Saloon League is now in Wash-
ington and no doubt will be locally
busy in this town very soon. We
have been asked by hundreds of peo
ple where we stand, and particularly
our woinen voters, on the saloon
question, and we desire to use the
columns of The Day Book for an ex
planation to all concerned.
You see we have no saloons, we
own no hotels or restaurants, and
therefore we have nothing to lose,
and no advantage by closing saloons,
but what we do own and the only
thing we have in our possession 4s
labor power, or our energy to work.
We are on the market to sell this en
ergy in order to live, and whoever
proves themselves our best customer
will be our frietfd.
Up to now the big Chicago hotels
and liquor interest, who own that
property, have been fighting us, they
have blacklisted our men and women?
they have introduced Russian feudal
ism and have taken all rights away
from their wage laborers. They have
forced our men into the saloons in
their struggle for jobs; in short, they
have done everything in their power
to exploit us, to draw all our life out
of us and profit thereby.
Now we hereby serve notice on our
employers to look up their own his
tory and then make peace with us.
Not until then can we be used to fire Q$
the bullets they made.
Organize your places, give union
conditions and proove yourselves a
friend of organized labor. If you
don't organized labor will fight you.
If every saloon in town will have to
be closed, we will help to close them
unless you deal with us in an honest

Union, Local 865.
