MORESI, President ji ·i·?:~ · A few Minutes With Local Sport By "UMP.", New Iberia appeared Sunday, and while they opened by scar ing Opelousas into near hysteria, and played the best game seen on the home grounds, it must be said that they only "appeared." The game was too much of a pitchers' battle to arouse the stands to enthusiasm that a swat jest would, and they were a littie dazed by seeing man after man "ski" down his batting average, as though said average were now figured from the reverse and Mr. Veltin's duties were far too num erous and because of failure to flag foul lines, a beautiftl repro duction of the "mob scene" was only spoiled by Umpire Isacks reversing a decision in which he had benched "Injun" for kick ing the first base in the air as a proteat agaiast the calling of his beautiful drive down the first base line a foul. New Iberia played clean, aggressive ball and the only criticism that could be made was that the kicking after the game about a decision which they had accepted two innings before as being all right. Just another reason why the umpiring should be handled at the plate. The management of ths visitors was of course equitable. The pitching of Wallet great, and had his back stop been familiar with him, another story would have been recorded. The playing of center field showed the possiblities of the position, and he robbed the Bank ers of two beautiful hits. The G. O. M. saved the game once by a beautiful running catch, but that was the only card up his sleeve. The "wee captain" worked his underhand once too often, but what's the difference? Do the fans know half his skill in getting "on?" Three times in this game, by his ability to get hit, wait 'em out, and his scratch hit, badly handled in the 10th scoring Toby with the winning run. And Brown, he fumbled a ball, with runner coming to third just long enough to tease said runner into going home and then whipped a perfect throw to "Injun," hav ing it there by four feet. This is the play that was criticised by the visitors after the game. With the exception of the first basemen, Stewart and Leo Larcade, this is about all the people that engaged, aside from the battery. "Injin" with a badly damaged knee and a "grouch" played with his old time fight and go-get-um-ness. "Toby." Wow! He gave up two hits and tobaggoned- into the hoped. He got a hit in the third, and the "wee captain" running for him, scored on a hit by Leo Larcade, a youngster from the second team that is the only natural batter on the local ground. From knee to shoulder, they all look alike-the fouled off more, and Wallet worked harder to re tire him than any man on the team. He steps into the ball and the Bankers would do well to work him in every batting prac tice, he will save many a game next year as a pinch hitter. But let's go back to the big tent. Toby held the visitors run less until the eighth, (though he did fill up the bases by giving a WITH THE WORLD OF WOMAN. "Wouldn't you like to know what he thinks of you?" one woman asked another. They had been talking of a sphinxlike, and because silent, interest-pro voking man. If he had talked much the spell would probably have been broken. "No," replied the other, a note of alarm in her voice. "Not always." Yet .a little English woman, who recently married the grand son of Longfellow, tempted the gods of discord by saying that the ideal husband is frank. Rash little woman who reconed with Lut moods! Moods are mental weather. Sometimes the sun of the spirit >hines gloriously, and at suchi hit, a pass and then slamming the opposite backstop with a wild throw in the first, with two down) but the Bankers had loafed too long, and they handled the ball as if it was hot. Casey startad and, and nearly every man on the team trying for the long distance throwing record. They started in the air, but for once Toby deserted by setting down. The ninth was unevent ful, though the visitors threath ened Toby held them down dur ing their half of the tenth and the stands settled for a long grind, but with two down Toby drove out a hit, stole second and the "wee cap." poked out a little one and kept the players after him tilliToby scored making Toby, carry both runs over the plate in the score book. All together it was Toby. It was the best game he ever handled and for the pitcher to score the ouly two runs in ten innings is proof pos itive that it was some game. Batteries: Dejean and Veltin; ---- and Wallet. Umpires: Perrault, Isaqks and Woods. NOTES. Next Sunday Lafayette. The rooters with the white hats. Oh! Where were they??? The management would do well to whiten the base lines. Someting should be done to those that have stolen the tim ber from the bleechers. Umpire Isacks and "Injun" had a run, in which "Injun" had a fine chance to loaf on the bench. Everything wore the color of grey to "Injuu" Sunday. He was on the war path, and he slipped from the Bunny hug to war dance with all the ease of a brute Sioux. Now, Messrs. and Madames "Fan," it is up to you to turn out and support the team. The best game of the year had one of the poorest crowds. It was your loss. That *game would 'have done credit to any city. Mrs. Buffirgton has joined the New Iberia fans, but she is too 1 charming a looser to achieve 1 greatness. We have reserved one player for I individual mention, a player that works, that is always in the game that never bates players or um pires, and a player for the love of the game. He handles his position as well as the opening i player on any team, :he bolsters I up in many ways, his less for- 1 tunate team mates and while the ' bankers do not know it, he is the rack of their foundation. t The fans, the team, are all in-' debted to him and "Ump" trusts that his tardy, acknowledgement toward making amends to a play er that gives so much, expecting nothing, will offset any seeming neglect. This tribute is earned by first sacker Stewart by his clean sports manship and all the other attri butes which go to make up theY gentleman that he is, Note:-Mr. Stewart is a capi talist, but "Ump" has paid his tribute from the view points of a :. - .- .- . _-" _,,,',,',_ . ,, times it is safe to be frane. The sunshine has irradiated and beautified the landscape of facts. But there be times when the sky is overcast. Perhaps this mood portends a downfall of rain, a rattling of verbal thunber and lightning. Or it may only be a temporary eclipse of the sun of good humor. But heaven spare us absolute frankness at these times! Maybe the little bride confused terms. What she wished to say may be, "The ideal husband is truthful." Certainly no normal woman wants lying answers to those ancient, honorable ques tions: "Where have'you.been?" and "Why are yon iate?t' Hus COMPLETE SNewspaper Plant aQ.R SALE BACKCOCK PRESS.

E 04 bands do not like these questions, They bore them. But the just husband believes they are one of the inescapable evils of married life, and he gives answer more or less truthful, according to circumstances. The only man I know who had the ha-dihood to dispute his wife's right to ask these questions, disputed also his mother's, and he has been di voreed, as he deserved. Truthfulness may be construed as an accurate answering of ques tions but frankness as the volun tary forcing of facts upon us. If the bridegroom last week ac quired by the hardy spirited bride who has been quoted is truthful he will answer reluc tantly when she says: "Do you think this frock is becoming?" "Not quite so becoming as the one you wore yesterday, dear." But if he is frank he won't wait for the question. He will say at breakfast-that t r y i n g meal which temperamental person eat alone- "What's the matter with that dress? You are looking worse than I ever saw you." In ten years she may say, "I lost my fresh color when I came to America. I'm dreadfully pale. Don't you think so?" If he is merely a truthful husband he will answer: "You are a little paler, dear. We must take a run down the coast to freshen you up." If he is a frank spouse 4 he will not wait for questions, 4 but will announce: "You're look- i ing horribly faded. You're not nearly as pretty as you were when I married you." If the bride is as spirited as a wife I know, she will retort: "Do you supnose you are the handsome man I married?" If he be simply truthful and she, asks him if he thinks she has paid too much for a rug he will answer: "Maybe they did over charge you." The frank man will exclaim: "There is no end to your extravagance." The truthful man, when begg ed to tell her whether she is be coming ' unbearable, answers: "Your nerves are trifle, unset, dear you need rest." The frank man will rush into trouble with the remark: "If I had known what a bad temper you have I would't have married you." The truthful husband will answer the inevitablepost-matki monial question: "Do you love me as much as you used to do?" with "True love neveri changes." I The frank man will not mince' delicate matters. She will have " no illusions when the conversa tion with shim is ended, and, he may have no wife. It would be rather painful to know what people think of us at all times, their actual appraise ment of us at the moment. Be cause of their mood, or ours, we might have a lower rating than we would have received yester day, or than that we will get to morrow. The lightning flash of anger might show us ourselves in a way that we would never forgive the speaker, and would be, hard pressed to excuse in ourselves, Moods are mighty, but their reign is blessedly short. Blessed be the man who invent ed silence! In crises it has sav ed bloodshed and spared broken friendships. Many a critic: l situation has been saved by enveloping it in the blessed veil of silence, for thoughts make no sound, and there is always hope that they may .change. Mark Twain inscribed on a photograph I hav seen: "Truth is-precious, let u-, economize it." Doubtless he ha 1 suffered at the hands of some volunteer of un pleasantness who called himself frank. The word has some ugly,!jagg ed rocks of fact. Life will be more beautiful if we screen their ugliness by paintipg flowers of consideration about them. We can at least refrain from brutal ity in the same name- of frank ness. Chataigniaer.
