pitching, tho University of Vermont base
ball tonm won from Mlddlcbury at Port
er field field Saturday afternoon by a
score of fi to 1, It wns a rather loosely
played game, with more errors both of
commission and omission than nro con
sistent with good baseball. Vermont won
by superior hitting, superior baso run
ning, the ability to hit In opportune mo
ments and to iull out of tight places, In
which they found themselves several
times during tho game.
McCormack pitched a first class game
for Vermont, allowing tho Mlddlcbury
slick artists only two hits, one of these
being of tho scratch variety, striking out
six and allowing only two free passes.
He was given ragged support at times,
however, and had Mlddlcbury shown any
hcadwork In baso running, tho final score
might have been different. As It was,
Mlddlcbury hnd six men caught on bases,
a double play In tho fifth, with only ono
mer wns caught too far off third, and a
moment later Tryon caught Hlpchey oft

to score wero thrown away by Mlddlc

In a drizzling rain at Centennial Field
Thursday afternoon, thu University of
Vermont baseball nlno fought Its way
to a C-to-2 victory over Dartmouth In
tho first homo game of tho season. Tho
gamo wns another notch in tho upward
progress of tho freshman pitcher, Klb
bee, who earlier In tho week hold Har
vard scoreless. Klbbe struck out 13 man
Thursdny, and It was largly duo to his
pitching In tight places that Vermont was
able to hold the Hanover boys In chock.
It waa anything but a baseball day.
Tho morning's promlso of good weather
brought a largo crowd to tho field, but
Just as the gamo started, it began t6
drizzle, and this deepened Into a regular
shower which lasted during tho greater
part of tho gamo, and mado accurato
playing very difficult. Considering theso
facts, tho gamo was excellently played,
It being a wonder to most of the spec
tators that thero wero not more errors.
A feature of tho contest was tho long
hit of Klbbe at tho opening of the soventh
Inning, which lauded tho pitcher on third
baso and which might havo been
stretched to a homer under perfect
coaching. As It was, the lilt went for
nothing, as Kibbee's teammatc3 were un
able to get him across tho plate.
Another feature wa3 tho runnlijr stab
by Smith of a well-placed hit 6jck of
second base In tho first of tho ninth,
when tho Dartmouth boys wore making
ono last desperate effort to tin tho score.
It was a pretty catch and deserved more
applause than It got.
The best team won. Thero can
hardly bo any question about that.
Coach lingle's hoys outplayed tho
team from Hanover at every stago
of tho contest, in hitting, fielding and
base running. In tho second Inning when
Vermont started her scoring, Nlchol, who

Ono of tho naval carrier-pigeons, "Red
Cloud," flew 533 miles In tho incredibly
short tlmo of 103 minutes. The longest
flight on record, by tho way. Is 1,030 miles,
covered In less than threo days. No
boats which sail the seas, and scarcely
any aircraft, can rival theso birds. As
one of the sailors In charge of tho carrier-pigeons
explained, "they have no
engine troubles." Another bird, "Peer
less Pilot," averaged thiee flights a day
for 11 months. It Is not generally known
that the Germans had some 60,0n0 carrier-pigeons
In service, so Important did
they consider their work. The allies had
30,000 birds. When tho Gorman armies
marched through Belgium, they confis
cated every pigeon, and announced that
any citizen found with a carrier-pigeon
In his possession would bo Instantly shot.
In dispatching pigeons at the front the

The officer In charge carries a little pad

sheet, which measures threo by five inch

Hamilton filed out to Ross ending the In

easy Infield fly from Tlmbcrman's bat.
Parker walked. With only one out

MNF.TY MILLIONS A DAY
The costliest Congress which ever met
appropriated money at tho rate of $90,
189,873 a day for each of Its C32 working
days. The Sixty-fifth Congress set a
staggering record of expenditure and
what a war costs , for business was
transacted at an everage of less than
one bill a day. The record Is also In
significant when an average of 33 bills
were introduced In the Wnr Congress

exception of one. But appropriations
imountlng to f57,000,000,000 wero approved
and a war declnred and won in the mean
time, and legislation enacted which up
rooted every American precedent. Much
Important legislation was carried
through Congress, not upon an lndo
pendent basis, but aB a rider attached to
another bill to which It frequently bore
no relation. In the six appropriation
bills which went through since last
July, 225 Items were carried which had
no bearing whatever on appropriations.
The bone dry law for tho District of
Columbia waa carried on the war reve

went on tho army bill, the road-building
project was put through along with tho
post office appropriation measure.

Most of tho scoring was done during the
early part of the game. In the first frame,
Dartmouth took a one-run lead After
Murphy .had filed out to Hamilton, u-.pt

and scored on a three-baso drive by Mer

Tlie hitting of .Merrltt for Dartmouth

which was captured by Palmer, but Rell
ley beat the throw In and added Dart
mouth's last tally to tho scoreboard.
Vormont scored two runs In tho second
and put the game In the Ice-chest In tho
fourth. Bowman, the first man up in the
second, was given a free ticket by Nlchol
after the pitcher had looked him over and
seen him nearly lose a ball in tho deep'
left garden on a foul. On a sacrifice bunt
by Smith, Bowman advanced to second.
Murphy tumbled Palmer's drive, and Bow
man went to third. Palmer stole second.
Burns contributed a timely single and
both runners scored. Tryon singled to
left. Klbbo hit aijd Burns was caught at
third, Klbbco getting to first and Tryon
to second. Hamilton flied out and the
scoring was over.
Again In the fourth, tho hitting opened
up. Smith wnlked, and went to second
when Murphy again failed to get one
from Palmer's stick. A wild throw sent
both men up a station, and Smith scored
on a sacrifice by Burns, whllo Palmer
romped across the plate when the catcher
threw wild to head off Tryon, who had
reached first on the pitcher's error. Kib
bce was out on strikes, but Hamilton
banged out a nice single and Tryon scored.
Hamilton was out at second when Marsh
hit to Kopf.
Both teams mado good use of their op
portunities to score, very few men being
left on bases. Dartmouth never shoved a
man as far as third except at tho times
when she scored. It was one-two-thrco
order in practically every Inning except
those already mentioned. Altogether, It
wns a real brand of baseball.
In the fourth, fifth and sixth Innings,
Klbbeo got eight strlke-outs In succes
sion, and it began to look as though tho
Dartmouth boys had acquired the habit.
Not more than a dozen balls wenAhrown
by Klbbeo In tho fifth.
