Here is the way the National
league is going to wind up this year:
New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Cin
cinnati, Philadelphia, Chicago, St
Louis and Pittsburgh.
How do we know? We put the
eight teams on slips of paper and
drew for positions.
Do not place any bets on the re

No matter how Zimmerman hap

Indoor sports: Counting the hits
New York made off Red Sox Foster.
Light occupations: Blowing up
The main light occupation of Cincy
yesterday was blowing up Chicago
Kohlemainen, noted long distance
runner, plied his favorite sport when
his regiment called him.
He'd rather be a live coward than

North Side fans who have failed
to give Heine Zimmerman the full
credit due him as star of the Cub
team should be a little wiser after Jjj
yesterday's disastrous double-header
with Cincinnati.
Rollie Zeider tried valiantly to fill

that gave Herzog's team their win

this. Zim-this season has proven a
real field captain. He has been the
pacemaker in the playing. He has
been bubbling over with "pep" and
he has be.en an inspiration at bat
There were many occasions in
yesterday's double biil when the Cubs
might have checked the Reds if Zim
had been in the game with his fancy
fielding powers. There also were
many times when the Cubs were at
bat that a hitter of Zim's caliber
might have turned the tide in favor
of the North Siders. His absence
should indeed make some fans re- Q,

Zim, who has a badly bruised '

Jim Vaughn, expects to be out of the
line-up until Sunday.
