distracted mother of the lad is today
seeking to aid the detectives detailed

SHIBE PARK, PHILADELPHIA, Oct. B.—lt was a sad looking
lot of Giants who marched upon the field here this afternoon for their
second gaiot* with the Athletics for world's championship.
Fred Merkle was limping from the tendon which he strained in the
first game, Fred Snodgrass was doing as the result of his "char
ley horse." and Chief Meyers, the Giants' star catcher, was wearing
bandage about a linger that had been
severely bruised in the opening fra
"While the Giants were working in
a little field group. Connie Mack sent
every one of his pitchers out to warm
up. Over on the Giant side Mathew
son. Tesreau, Demaree and Fromme
exercised their winsrs.
If old Bill Penr, the puritanical
daddy of this particular section of the
United States, were alive today and
saw the "enryings on" hereabouts, he
would have been Inexpressibly shocked
and also wouud have concluded that
every one of his 2,000,000 offspring
was very, very "nutty."
He would have heard his children,
one and all, emitting terribly sound
ing cuss words because the weather
man doled out drizzling rain and a
heavy fog that threatened to force
the postponement of the second world's
series combat between the Giants and
the Athletics scheduled for this city
this afternoon.
He would have seen a number >f
his children skulking around accost
ing strangers either on the Street or
in the hotel lobbies and quietly offer
ing to sell them a 12 reserved seat
for %:> or a $3 reserved seat to* $3.
Another sight that would have as
tounded Bill was thai of at least 20,
--000 of his progeny battling with each
other. In friendly way, of course, out
side the ball park for the 10.000 unre
served tickets that wete placed on
sale at 10 a m.
Many of those in line had waited
t ~'
there all night, standing In the driz
zling rain, risking pneumonia, even
death, in their eagerness to see the
baseball classic.
Still another thing hava
startled Bill and caused him to won
der just what particular breed of de
scendants followed* 1 him was the ac
tion of hordes of his other children
rushing up to each other in public
places, almost hugging each
their hysterical loy* and shouting
Adjust themselves automatically

"Equipoise" eyeglasses immediately

further worry—your eyeglasses will
stay on comfortably. v
