Brown Vanquishes Mat Man!"
From Chicago by Throwing i

Shows Much Class.

In n rather tame wrestling match |

falls being secured by toe bolds.
Four hundred tans attended the show

The show opened with lu minutes of j

which went to a draw: both bbys do-j

edge that was surprising considering!
that the match w as his first, and all j
he knnvv about tin* gentle art being ;
what he had gleaned from a corre
sponde nee course. Vivian is a comer.
The second affair brought out ''Kill

were so weak they couldn't hav e broke n

When the Rubins trade Jake Hau
bert ami it i* almost certain that the
captain of tho Ulatbush clan will be
traded to another club before the teams
start for the south Wiih'crt Robinson
will engineer a dial whereby he will
secure a player who bats left-handed.
At present the only regulars on tHe
[Robins who hit from the wrong side
of the plate tire Zark Wheat and Dau
bert. Manager Robbie does not be
lieve that one left-handed batter In
the lineup Is sufficient, and If lio can
swing a deal that will bring a left
handed hitter to take Jake's place In
the batting order ho will be saved from
a great deal of worry when ho ar
ranges the order in which the men will
step to the plate next season.
Another Giant youngster who »'as
been heard from again—this one by

pent out under optional »greernenl to
the Roehetser club last snrign. Stryker
is still in Franco and doesn't know how
long he is likely to remain there. The
young pitcher went overseas last sum

tho Argonne Forest, and as far as can
be learned came out of it unscathed.
