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
However, when taking the Univer
sity of Notre Dame into our confi
dence we can point with pride to
the wonderful achievements of Harry

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

direct r suit of Mr. Joyce's admini

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

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.

Charles Moritz, Joe Luther, Albert

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
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.

World Many
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
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.
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."

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,

public spirited citizens, who enjoys
the confidence and esteem of all, and
his sussess is a testimonial to his
ability and high character.

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
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. .

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
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.
