Jim Vaughn is a large person, he
hardly comprises a whole staff.
The hope of the Cubs is that Che
ney will round to form on this jaunt
and that George Pierce will show
something when, he gets a chance in
a regular game. Otherwise the road
ahead will be hard and rocky. Lav

Tinker gave his men a hard riding

Here in Chicago there is good bit
of enthusiasm over the way Pat Mo
ran, ex-Cub, has shot his Phillies off
in front in the National league scram

training trip with the Giants but was
declared unfit, held them to two hits
If Chalmers makes good he will be
a great aid to Moran. He came up to
the Phillies at the same time Grover
Alexander made his debut, but neyer
lived up to promises of success. He
was let out by the Giants and then
grabbed back when McGraw handed

Wild Bill Donovan seems to have

eight runs on five hits, three passes

By getting himself sent to jail for
