FRIDAY, JULY 18, 1913 SOUTH BEND-IN-1913 EDITION. THE SOUTH BEND NEWS-TIMES. 15 South Bend Has Furnished The Famous Atheletes In All by eobert sciinelle. South Bend has contributed con siderably to the world of pport in v ( ry d?r?.rtment except pugilism and aquatic?. However, when taking the Univer sity of Notre Dame into our confi dence we can point with pride to the wonderful achievements of Harry lel.ru r. the wonderful back stroke t-'viminor, who ppecializes In he 50 and 100 yard dashes and contributed his jdiaro in giving the United States an overwhelming majority of points in the International Athletic sames he'd at Stockholm a year ago. Mr. Hcl.ner l.i now a member of the Illi nois Athletic club's aquatic team. In pugili?m South Rend contribu ted very little as tho Held has never been very conductive to that par ticular ?port. although some import ant battles were watred here. The T:r;;rest South Bend can lay claim to any pugilistic celebrity, is the fact that lickey McUarland, one of the most Advertised and popular wielder of the paddf d.' mitts in the world, fought his professional engagement in South Hem! when he defeated Jouis Siefert In four round--, which paved the way for his phenomenal successful career. Producing material for track and field pportp, football and baseball In the college world South Rend sent 'out as many and perhaps more stars than mo-4 cities of its size. It would Te impossible to enumerate the mer its of them all individually but those vhose names are particularly honored as champion? ore Walter Muessel And J. M. Studebaker Jr., who were members of the famous Purdue foot ball team In 1S30, '51 and 'fJ2, when flying wedge was very popular, which vanquished every other college team In the middle west, including the University of Illinois, then the ac cented leader in athletics. There are scores of South Bonders who entered schools and were very impo"tant factors In the success of their respective teams but South Pend never had their achievements brought homo to them more forcibly than back in 183S. In that period the Commercial Athletic club was in its Infancy and attempted to engage ac tively in all branches of athletics. In it? second season of football ex perience a most remarkable number of college men, who had earned their pheep skins and learned enough of football in their several universities to become known as stars, returned home, and, these with a few others who located here constituted one of the most powerful football teams that over represented an athletic club. Won championship. Playing under the colors of the Commercial Athletic club the team conquered such powerful teams as Indianapolis, Toledo, Marinette clubs .

A direct r suit of Mr. Joyce's admini stration of the office ef city controller is the al s nee of anything like c n-fusi.-n. contention or dinut;s with reference to the city's finances. For every d-dlar received or paid out there H a ree-ord in black and white, subject to closest scrutiny by every person inter st. d in the management of the municipality's affairs. ne of the difficulties encountered in the administration of a growing city is to m -t financial requirements without increasing taxation. Taxes an- popularly considered burdensome a "necessary evil" from which there is no escape. The earnest thought cf those in charge of government should therefor be to meet current obligations without adding to the pub lic burden by increasing taxation. It is a source cf unfeigned gratification 'I?v3v .. fSMy. $ V George Mullin, famous Detroit pitcher, who p,ot his start In South Bend. and eventually was acknowledged champions of the United States by reason of their defeat of the Chicago Athletic club, up to then acknowl edged supreme, by the score of 15 to 11. That team was captained and coached by F. U. lhring, later na tional head of the Order of Uagles, and managed by it. A. Schnclle. The team comprised Peter Studebaker, U. J. Fogarty, Joseph Sinprler, Dr. K. V. Wagner, Frank (Puck) ilanley, Charles Moritz, Joe Luther, Albert Alward, Frank Murphy, Charb s Zeitlcr, K. C. Duncan. Wm. S. Mocke. Mike Ilanley, Ceo. Taylor and Lloyd Prown. As Chicago had already de feated the best teams In the east and west 'South Pend was acknowledged as tho champions of the United States. Considering the fact that existing laws require major leagues to carry but active plavers the fact that South Pend has live players actively en gaged in the big leagues means a better representation pro rata than any other city In the country. This percentage Is even greater when Notre Dame is embraced for Vic. Dubuc is the mainstay in the box for Detroit; Fd Puhlbach has been for many years a star pitcher for tho Chicago National league club, and Red Morgan is second basing It for Washington. Pecent graduations of Williams, Pathrop and Cranfield, to the Cubs. Sox and Cincinnati teams, respectively are big league material but have not had a chance to grow in full bloom. Pack in the independent ball days South Pend sent timber to the big leagues when Harvey Pailcy was picked up by the Poston Americans. However. Pailey did not acquit him self with credit for he was disposed of in short time becar.se he would not work hard enough to attain perfec tion. In this respect George Muilin dif fered materially when given his chance with Detroit for he toiled dil igently and soon forged to the front suflieiently to be feared as one of the greatest pitchers known to baseball. George was a member of the De troit Tigers many years until sold to Washington this spring and his efi'oc ive work was instrumental in giving Detroit all Its championship teams, in the American league, but who were never successful in winning a world's pennant. In Central League1. When the Central League was first organized in 19 011 South Pend was given its first taste of organized base ball. It required oisht years of toil before a championship was won by a South Pend elub in the organiza tion although we will always contend that South Pend was entitled to the first Hag Central League clubs battled for. League ball gave South Pend much foreign advertising although this was not very well developed until the reign of Dr. F. U. Carson, who suc ceeded Ge'. W. Pement, of Kvansville to the presidency of the Central League. Through faithful toil, un ceasing vigilance and his pleasing personality. the Central League bounded from an unknown quantity to one of the best governed minor leagues in the National Association, and. although at present retired from active service of the affairs of the league Dr. Carson Is still a power in the offices f the National Asso ciation, of Minor Paseball Leagues, where he is still a member of the board of arbitration. It is natural to'nssume that many players graduated to higher leagues to be able to state, that while under the law two additions to the tax levy had to be provided for 10 cents for track separation and 3 cents for park purposes no increase of the levy for city purposes was made. This, too, without crippling nivy of the other funds-. How this was rendered pos sible may be ascertained by studying the comprehensive and instructive re port of controller Joyce for the year lf 12. It shows how valuable to a community is good housekeeping in an official sense of making every dol lar received, and expended go just as far as prudent management will make it possible to do. In conclusion I wish to express my appreciation of the cardial relations existing between the several branches cf the city, government and for the uniform courtesy extended to me by the common council. 1 lespectfully submittal Chas. Jj. Coetz. World Many Lines when South Pend atlllliated with or ganized baseball, sobetimes not direct but through a more circuitous route, of those who are still In the limeliuht in the selvet circle are Ownie Push. Alexander McCarthy, Max Cary and Punt" Walsh. Cecil Ferguson was the first player, who went from South Pend to the major leagues. 1 rgy, in company with Coffey, Spangler and Cogswell starting for the big show via Louis ville. Ferguson was the only mem ber of the quart t to stick as the other three players reverted to the Central league via Wheeling and all returning to South Pend with the ex ception of Spangler. of the: noisiest and most promin ent players in the big leagues are Max Carey and Uwnie Push. The latter landed In Detroit via Indian apolis and was responsible and given credit for winning the American league pennant for h's team in 190S but because he joined the Detroit club too late in the seasqn he was declared Ineligible to play in the world's series, a blow to the American league champions. Starred at Pittsburg. Max Carey and Alexander Mc Carthy were sold to Pittsburg im mediately after the close of the sea son of 1D10 and have been members of that club ever since. Carey, especially, won the plaudits of the major league fans from the start and has been one of the mainstays of the Pittsburg club. In fact he Is an idol in the smoky city next to .that of the great Wagner. McCarthy was given a regular berth the first sea son but in the last two years has done only utility service. Very little is being heard of "Punt" Walsh, the big rough and ready third baseman with tho dog and largo Klks charm. However, he is still on the pay roll of the Phillies and finds his way into the box scores as a pinch hitters and occasionally doing utility service. The fact that he has never been mentioned in trades or waivers asked on him proves that he is considered a very valuable man on the club. Notre Dame's most priminent men in baseball were A. C. Anson, Sockale xls and the late Dr. Powers. Cap. Anson's name is linked with every thing pertaining to the great national pastime as player, marager and part owner. Sockalexis was undoubtedly the most conspicuous figure that ever entered the ranks of the major leagues. Peing a full blooded Indian, a ter rific batsman and a fair fielder and baserunner his advent in the Select circle as the only Indian gave it spice. Put like most members of his race he could not stand the resistance of firewater with the result that his stay was short and at last accounts he is doing guide duty in the hills and fishing camps of Maine. Put the most universally liked ball player, who ever made his debut in select society was Dr. Mike Powers. Connie Mack, manager of the Athlet ics, who has a penchant for college men was very much impressed with the work of Powers on the Notre Dame club and Introduced him to the fold direct from the college campus. Powers became a power in baseball not only through his efficiency in tho game but was loved by all who came to know him for his pleasant per sonality. He was of the quiet dis position, ever ready to do a kindly act toward friend or foe and many were his acts of charity. Peaceful rest to his ashes. FARM AND INDUSTRIAL SHOW TO BE HELD. In an effort further to cement ,ihe close relations now existing between the city of South Pend, its merchants, manufacturers, jobbers and business men generally and the producers of farm products in the surronding country, arrangements are now under way ior a big Farmers-Manufactur- rs-Me Tenants show to be staged here in the fall. The movement was initiated by Oeorge A. Pobertson. a progressive department store owner, four years ago in a small way. Other merchants joined him in the . following vears until 1913 when the Chamber of Com merce realizing the big possibilities in the annual exhibit took it over and are pushing it on a bigger scale than ever this year. Handsome prizes of money and val uable goods are offered for the best exhibits in every dine of articles pro duce.! on the farm. The day is a gala day for the entire section of country surrounding South Pend and unusual efforts are being 'made this vear to make the affair a notable one." The week of the show will also bring out for the first time a com prehensive display of the manv ar ticles now manufactured in sjouth Pe-nd. The Merchants National Bank Of South Pend. is located at 229 South Michigan street with re ?ourses of over one million dollars is one of the strong financial in stitutions of the city and is do ing no small part in the commer cial and business interests of South P.end "World Famed." They do a general banking busi ness in a safe, conservative man ner, and give careful attention to small accounts as well as large? It would be a good thing for you to start a savings or checking ac count in this enterprising bank. Interest commences July 1. Put your money where it will earn you 4rr interest compounded semi-annually, and see it grow like a snowball rolling down hill. It takes hard work to earn money, so make it work hard when you get it. ' When you do business at The Merchants, you are dealing directly with the officers, who are its larg est stockholders, and most inter ested in the efficiency of service given its patrons, thus doubly safe guarding your interests. Haberle's Machine Shop Machinery plays an important part in this Industrial Age, and the busi ness of dealing in and manufacturing machinery occupies a leading posi tion in the commercial makeup of any city of importance. In this re spect we wish to refer to Haberle's Machine Shop, located at 311 Hy draulic avenue, which is one of the most completely eejuipped plants of this kind in this section. Mr. J. P Haberle deals in machinery of all kinds, and employs the best of me chanics for installing and repairing, etc". He is one of our prominent, public spirited citizens, who enjoys the confidence and esteem of all, and his sussess is a testimonial to his ability and high character. M. HAZINSKI 302 So.

HEW DISCOVERIES ARE EXAGGERATED Better be on the Conservative Side Say the United Doctors No One Remedy to Cure All Human Troubles Has Yet Been Found. The one-idea man is usually a dan gerous man, especially in medicine. Time was when bitter roots and herbs were used as cure-alls. Every disease was treated by giving tonic. Then came allopathy, with the calo mel and quinine, and every sick per son pot calomel and quinine, and maybe morphine. Next came the homeopath, with his medicated supar; the electic; the Christian Science; the healer; the osteopath; the vegetable diet man, etc., etc. All of the different cults based upon a good Idea, but were carried too far. Because a particular drug or treatment would cure one dis ease it was prescribed for every con dition. When the X-ray was discovered it was heralded as a cure-all. Soon X ray instruments sprang up all over tho country. Some doctor with a small knowledge of medicine wou'd buy an X-ray machine and "with it treat every disease in the catalogue. But .the X-ray craze soon died out. Tho X-ray was soon put into Its place, a valuable assistant to the surgeon in locating bullets and other foreign bodies, in fractured bones, etc. But tho only diseases which aro now treated by the X-ray are certain skin diseases. Then came the surgeon with his knife, cutting out the appendix, or any other unruly organ, mutilating many and curing few. Radium was discovered. It was a rare substance and a great curiosity. When it was discovered it wa heralded as a cure all, but it has been used practically, nono in medicine. The trouble with all these "cures" has been that fiey were "one Idea cures. The gr&t cures that have been made by the United Doctors, who have their South Bend Institute on the second floor of the Toepp building on S. Main st., opposite the postofllce, are all made by using the United" system of treatment, uniting all the systems and using the reme dy that is Indicated in that particular case, whether it is allopathic, homeo pathic, electric or what. No two dis eases can be treated alike, a medicine must be made to fit each particular ca-ce. That's why the United Doctors are able to cure so many cases which could not even bo helped by ordinary doctors. . ft' ' ; ' ' It-- - - ft r '-:::-'- u v. 4f ' Kosciuszko Building and Loan Association Probably one of the concerns which has been largely . Instrumental in building up the we?t end, is the Kos ciuszko Puilding & Loan Association, with its big office lecated at 411 South Chapin st. During its existence of practically 30 years. It has proven itself a friend to tho man In need In a million ways. Originally it bepan with a small stock, organized by Polish citizens, Septem ber 1, 1SS4, for th.j purpose of mak ing small loans to the Polish people who already were planting that vi cinity. Through the extra low rates, and the largo capital ftock the Associa tion has furnished a large number of the citizens of the' west end. who are forced to live on small income?, with homes, furniture and money whenever they needed it. Since it organized, a stock capital of over $2,000,000.00 has been stacked up for. the ready use of the citizens, affording the people with a great res- ervoir, to which the- man in need may j turn at any time and find a ready re serve. It is the largest concern of its kind in the cltv. and according to the An nual report of the Indiana Puilding . and Loan Association, its assets for the past year are larger than all other loan associations In the city com bined. Although ft large majority of its patrons are Polish people, citizens irom every nationality nna tneir waj to "its doors, where they find the easiest way of buying a home through the efficient methods and rates of the association. Although at times it has had more customers than Immediate funds could be furnished for, it is generally able to provide money for poor and rich alike, and with what ever sum they arc In need of. The association points with prbde to the man after whem it was named. The famous Polish general. Thaddeus Kosciuszko's name grave the institution its title. Starting business on a fair and square basis It has continued to bear up Its standard, until now it is the friend of every man In the west end. It is not a one man concern, but the profits are divided equally among the stork holrlprs Not only the people of the west end have been benefited Uy the low rates offered by the Institution which has made it possible for a large number of j them to own their homes, but people from all over the city find their way to the Chapin st. building, where they know by experience that they will get a square deal. The patrons of the big Institution are not all included in the city of South Pend, but they come from all parts of St. Joseph county, and from every corner of the state, and in fact from every state in the Union, until we can say of It, that it reaches i4s loaning hands from coast to coast. It has at Its head a list of the most prominent men of the city. Joseph II. Hazlnskl Is Its president, St. J. Chelminlak Is Its secretary and John F. TVesolowski is its treasurer. Its directors are as follows: Paul Niezgodzki, John KitkowskI, Stanisaus Drajus, W. A. Gorka, Leo Thilman. C. Aranowskl, L. S. Beckiewicz, Louis Kolski and S. Wawrzon. , The doors of the big concern are al ways open inviting the public to enter and enjoy the 'privilege of the loans let on easy installment payments, from the piles of money stacked in the safes. The institution offers the easi est terms and always provides the safe way for its customers.
