it did no damage.
Red Toner pitched a deserving
game. Some idiotic fans in th '
southeastern portion of the grand
stand took occasion to ride the
earnest and sorrel-topped veteran.
But it wasn't Toner's fault, and we

third. But Nick only got one bag
on this particular slam. John Nutt
gladdened a number of loyal hearts
with a hearty two base smash to
the left field fence. It was our pri
vate opinion designed to be expressed
j in print that Nick might have scored,
j especially as the ball plunked into
j the fence and hounded back toward
,1110 centerfield, if he had been sprint
ing up to his usual form. . As it was.
(Hayes leaped - over and culled the
l ball from the sand, heaved to Pendle-

dependable Byrd Lynn submitted to
the cuspidorous curves of Knight.
Weeping and Wailing
There is just one thing more piti
able than the sight of Smiley, when
one ot his .favorite benders has been
straigntened out in an aggressive
two-base manner. And that is the
sight of Red Toner, hustling his
darnedest out there in the warm in
timate sunshine, and not having
enough bits made back of him to
wad a shot-gun. Red lias been play
ing in hard luck during the present
stay in our mongst, and every time
he has
gone into the box, it has
been with the knowledge that he
must do Something for his country.
He is making' a brave stab to get
back into his o- condition, when ho
used to pitch a multitude of two and
three hit games.
SCHOOL CHILDREN ARE
PROTECTORS OF QUAIL
That the school children of Navajo
county are among the most zealous
guardians of the quail which were in

ment of County Supervisor Q. R. Gard ¬

yesterday.
Approximately fifteen dozen fquai'.
were trapped last year In the Sal.
River Valley and taken north to the
valley of the Little Colorado, where
they were liberated. Before turning the
birds loose, Mr. Gardner visited all
the schoo-s in the valley, shoved the
birds to the pupils, ind enlisted their
interest and protection fir the ouail.
The birds, it is stated, stood the winter

Close Race In
Rain Last Month
associated press dispatch
XKW YORK, June 1. With rain
and cold weather prevailing over
major league territory only 3S out of
50 games scheduled in the National
and American leagues were played
during the past week, insuring a big
crop of doubleheaders as the season
progresses.
Both Chicago teams continued to
lead their respective leagues, though
for a time Philadelphia displaced the
Chicago Nationals, while the Chicago
Americans, after winning nine straight
games were checged by Cleveland,
which team yesterday took a close
decision from the Sox.
The St. Louis Nationals attracted
some attention during the week, out
playing the Giants excepting the last
game in the series. The race as a
whole in the National league is one
of the closest in the history of the
organization.
The position of the loaders in the
American league showed little change

for the week, with Detroit continuing
to press Chicago for the leadership.
The New York Americans, who for
a time were in first place, lately have
shown a bad slump, having dropped
six straight games. They remain in
third place, however.
The Boston Nationals have shown
what many of their friends consider
a. return to their old form, and with
the return of Johnny Kvers to the
ranks, it is expected the team will
again show it fighting spirit.
Although the National and American
league schedules were badly broken
up by bad weather, the big circuits of
organized baseball suffered much less
severely during the week than the
Federals. Seldom in the history of a
league have there be so many post
ponements within such a short space
of time. There were more postpone-'
ments in fact than games played, the
figures standing twelve played and
fifteen postponed.

FEDERAL LAW
St;i1 c (J;uiic AVardcii Finds

ing Xow aihl Announces
That Hunters Will Fe
Arrested Proivptly.
Following the receipt of reports
from deputies whom he lias had in
the field investigating the whit..'
wing situation. Game Warden Wit
lard ;uinomieid yesterday that the
state game department will enforce
the federal law, which prohibits the
shooting of the doves before July 15.
Regarding his decision to cause the
arrest of all who are found killing
t'ne does, the rarac warden
yester-
day gave out the following
state-
ment :
Monday, a week ago, I had a man
out hunting doves' nests and he re
ported Km nests found, as a result
of about six hours' work after reach
ing the nesting grounds, and op
June 1. the day upon which it has
been customary to open the season
for the shcotin of these birds, I
had the same man out again. lie
reported having found 77 nests, con
taining either eggs or young.
This department has had many in
quiries as to its intention regaruing
the enforcement of the federal law.
and in the face of the above facts
nd conditions it can give but one
answer: The federal law will no
enforced. Better still, there seems to
he but little inclination to slay these
irds, once the people are supplied
with the knowledge that they are
now nesting in such large numbers.
fine motorcycle deputy, who has
covered a- great deal or the valley
today reports that he did not see or
hear a single gun fired during 1h
entire day, and we hope and expect
that he will be able to make like
reports up to the 15th of July.

State Game Warden.
Whether the open season for
white wings as prescribed by the
state law comes in the nesting sea
son in this vallev. or whether the
law permits hunttrs to take the field
just at the moment when the doves
are beginning to damage crops in- a
question that has been hotly de
bated on both sides by sporting
goods dealers and the state author
ities for a number of years.
