Hammond to Play Chicago's
Crack Colored Nine Next
Sunday, Who Defeated
Gary Cracks.
Hammond will not play the Mutual
en next Sunday, as stated in yesterday
morning's Examiner, but instead the at
traction will be the t'nion Giants, one
of the best colored teams playing sami
rro ball today.
Only last Sunday the colored boys
lhowed their class when they traveled
to Gary and defeated the fast Steel
City team by the score of 3 to 0. Craw
ford, who -will undoubtedly do the
pitching against Hammond, held the
Gary aggregation to three measly blows
while his r.-.".tes gathered a total of nine
hi's off of F!?h. who wis formerly a
'jr " !th the Chicago Federal league.
However, if Reynolds Is in as pood a
trim on next Sunday as he was against
Camp Custer the Giants will hive their
troubles trying to get on bases much
less score any rum.

Sunday, when they held Camp Custer
to an eleven Inning tie. than at any

Possibly the presence of Fete Hn

on the rlayerf. at ar.y ra'e It must
have been something that possessed the

When American soldiers and sailors meet in a ball frame it' "war to the out." Army and navy lads
staged an exhibition game recently for the benefit of the allied sick and wounded soldiers at Bon De Boulougne,

ten rounds cf fighting, between Eddie
M.Goorty and George Chip ended here
last night in the windup of John Wag
ner's show, MoGoorty had a shade the
best of the milling. Ed's ring general
ship, his cleverness and his punch,
though displayed better in other
. matches, won the Camp Grant corporal
the match.
Fd didn't step Into his foe as In
former contents. H allowed his op
ponent to get Fet too often and this
deprived him of winning off by himself,
but there can be no dispute as to who
was h better man.
The closing rounds of the, battle were
Fd's best. In these he took more
chances, shot over his vicious left and
crossed the right, and while they didn't
damage Chip's fighting makeup, they
added points to his lcad.
Eddie Blocks "Wild Ones.
Chip would lunge at his opponent
with m clous swings, which EdLe either
stepped inside of or blocked. One ef
Chin's runches cost Eddie two teeth.
Piano playing is without beauty when deli
cate shading is lacking. The touch of an artist
brings to life the sweet strains that thrill our be
ing. Manv persons enn nlar the piano after a
fashion that locks tonial beauty. It is because the piano responds to exactly
the touch good, bad or otherwise of the performer. No difference how
splendid the piano, the music will not be charming unless the keys are
struck with artistic touch. Many pianists with years of practice never ac
quire musical touch. Many player pianos are all mechanical because the
makers never studied touch". Tf you w ill listen to the Wilborn Solo-Harp
Player Piano, the thread-bare idea that all player-pianos are mechanical
will vanish.
