The guns are pounding away as they never did before, aeroplanes have been busy all through the big struggle and today I saw a Hun plane come down amongst the laughter of hundreds of American boys who believe that the air fcird is yet a thing to be, feared in the coming battles.

June 5 Famous bone head plays have occupied the hilarious moment of baseball from the time the game -was !n Ha Infancy. Their re counting is a source of much Joy to the old-time fan and to the. old-time ball player. Probably there nevei wa world's series with such a predominance of idiotic maneuvers as the last one, when the White Fox and the Gianta seemed to vie with each other In making them, but there have been freak playa with out number in other games. For Instance. Nemo Liebold te.Ha of a play in which Kay Chapmen and he fig ured, while both were members of the Cleveland club. Chapman was on third base, with Liebold on second. Nemo wa trapped too far off second and Chapman started for home, where be promptly was head ed and started back fr third. In t he ensuing mix ip. Liebold re lates, the playera were so maneuvered that when the action stopped Liebold was roosting on first base and Chap man on second, a peg from where earh had started. That, of course. coMld not happen now, with the. rules as they are. Once upon a time, with the bases leaded In a minor league game, the man on third ba.se started for home on a passed ball. He was trapped ar.d caught at third base. In the meantime the man on first bad started for second, and when an effort was made to get him. the man on second startefl fot third. He was caught. The mia cn first then made another effort to reach second, with the result that he supplied the final putout of a triple play at sec ond base. The catcher made the final poutout at second base, with the center fielder taking Vine of the other "putouts and getting the final assist.
