Adolph Wolgast is still fighting in
the west, but John L. Sullivan denies
he contemplates going back to the
Squirrel Finnerty, demon box fight
er 20 years ago, threatens to try a
comeback. Boy, page Peter Maher!
It took the war to prove that there
are some punches Bombardier Wells
can duck. He hasn't stopped a bomb
from a Zep yet
Experts are agreed that you can't
put up a nip and tuck fight if you
take the nip first
Now that the was has stopped golf
in Europe we are beginning to dread
peace more than ever.
It's all very well to be swift and ca
pable of going like a house afire but
a house afire doesn't last long.
"Hotel Men Beat Actors" head
line. Rallying from this shock we
learned that the beating was accom
plished oa a ball diamond and not in
the old accustomed manner with the
reverse English.
By Mark Shields
Like the Republican convention,
the National league furnishes a knot
ty problem to a guy trying to pick
the nominee, but it is fair to assume
that our favorite son in neither event
will land in the money. Larry Sher
man, who looks like Lincoln, has lit
tle chance in the former event, and
our well-known Cubs, who look like
something else again, must do a lot
of things they haven't done so far
if they are to be factors in the base
ball tussle.
At any rate, it begins to look as
though we would not be denied a city
series next fall, so there is light in
the gloom,
Tinker's people are riding toward
Boston, where they open the eastern
invasion with three games. Their
work against the easterners on the
North Side lot does not give much
ground for an optimistic feeling, but
there is always the chance for an im
provement when a team is in sixth
place. There is more room at the
top than at the bottom.
A few homely mottoes like that are
about all the consolation we have
left For file North Siders are not
playing alert and bright basebalL
Theiibaserunning is still something
to wonder at, and the pitchers are
yet very uncertain gentlemen, who
are more likely to be a liability than
an asset
As the team travels east it seems
that Mulligan wiU' once more be seen
at short, playing the position in the
second game yesterday against the
Cards after Mike Doolan had made a
couple of costly wild throws in the
first battle. The Cubs will never be
a winning combination until the
right duo is found for the' keystone
sack and allowed to work there until
the defense is improved.
