MILLER. Vhilo all of Washington 1b spending large proportion of its nights, either tnatch or league duckpln and tenpin ullng. aa that snort seems to have JC for itself the name of the national door winter pastime, one fact has been ' tJoeable In this particular com- unity and that is tho almost total sence of one of the best duckpln oillens evero developed In this city. Hoference is made to Johnny Baum, fhJi whom there Is probably no better l'tlo pin adherent In our midst and for f past two years he has proven his rtjit to the reputation which the abovo flcates. Baum has not entirely with- iwn himself from the pin world, but jchas reduced his activities from four Iwues to one league, in the short space one Fummer, and the bowlers are entirely familiar with the whys wherefores of this sudden lowering 'epeeja on his par. "ine year ago now, Johnny Baum was roLnir "with" the Belmdnts. of "the DIs- "ic League; the Arcadians, of the Ar- j onmercial League and with tho Even- ng Star Afternoon League. This sea- ror we find him enrolled with the Gan- Hi, of the Arcade League, only, and has affiliated with that organlza- 3t principally because he promised "Wc Gandil last spring that he would otI with the home team at the Arcade Uieys. Ihe answer tq Baum' a apparent dlsln- llnatlon to borl is simply this: His alth will not iermlt of the late hours od wild excitecent attendant to Iceep ig pace with itore than one duckpin "am Baum suffered a stomach break-1 'own early In th summer and he has lever entirely reroverea rrom this at- ack wh'ch left 11m in a much weak ned ttate. ""or this season the star of one of ve greatest bowlhg seasons which this tv has ever enjojed has decided to rs t with the exejption of his Arcade "Tinectlon. for at least the present win- r Baum desires to give his constitu n an opportunitj to recuperate from Jolt which it encountered during orst of his ncent illness and ho -ui decided to adopt an "early to bed" 'Hry, until he feels wholly himself rain.

"I d like to battle him at Ardmore and twenty rounds looks good to me. Mar shall showed what the service nroduces when he put away Young Thomas.
