New York. Sept. 12. Baseball man
agers who are up against it for a
good infielder now and then may take
a cue from Uncle Wilbert Robinson,
of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Tour Uncle Wilbert Is a resource
ful person, and that's one of the rea
sons why he's a big league manager.
But even Robby's resourcefulness was
taxed to the utmost a short time ago
when he faced the problem of finding
a man to fill George Cutshaw's shoes
at second base, for, when George
sprung a flat tire and was forced to
put his moniker on the hospital list,
there was not one around the Dodger
camp who could be shoved into the
But Robby found a way out. He
wigwagged a few signs to Hi Myers,
one of his five outfielders, and HI
came to the rescue by covering the
keystone sack to a queen's taste.
After a few games at second base Hi

cutting off base hits that Cutshaw
wasn't missed and it is probable that

E-THER in El Paso there are very
few baseball fans, or if there is
a large number they seem to be
very indifferent to the success of
baseball In El Paso, judging from the
attendance at the weekly games of
the Pass City league. For the past
month the attendance at the games
has been very poor and league offi
cials are wondering just where the
trouble lies, and are trying to remedy
it Certainly there is nothing wrong
with the class of baseball as it is on
very rare occasions that a better
standard of the national pastime is
dished out in El Paso than the games
of the past few weeks.
What Is the trouble? Has interest
died or Is it merely a matter of the
fans being afraid of getting a soak
ing? Judging from the comment
heard on the city streets during week
days and prior to the games there is
quite a bitter interest in the welfare
of the four teams of the circuit but
the fans and well wishers fail to
make it known at the box office, and
judge Charles Pollock and scorer L.
M. Coyne are doing their best to
It is a matter of fact that the at
tendance has fallen off woefully at
the park since the heavy rain of the
past lew weeks. The small attend
ance can then be traced to the door
step of Mr. J. Pluvius. and he alone
is responsible for the trouble. There
is very little aouot however, that in
pite of the showers El Paso fans
are losing an opportunity to see some
mighty good baseball.
FOR LAST TIME
The Athletics made their final ap
pearance for the year in St Louis on
Aug. zs oeiore tne smallest crowd
that has appeared at the Browns'
.park this year. The day was a gloomy
one, with intermittent rainfall, but
the two clubs were anxious to get
the game off their minds. When busi
ness manager Quinn of the Browns
apologized to business manager Ohl
of the Athletics for the smallness of
the check, Ohl told Quinn not to
mind, that the Philadelphia club had
done worse and he told of a game
in New York last year when the Ath
letes' share of the receipts were
S4.CS. It was raining on the day the
game was nlaved and it Vent nn rain
ing, but the manafer wanted to clean
up the schedule and so they played,
though there were only about a hun
dred fans, passes and all, in the park.
MAY CHANGE RULING.
Under the regulations governing
the world series no player of either
competing ciud is eligible for the
series who was not a member of the
squad on August 21 last preceding
tne anampionsnip games. It Is prob
able that an exception may be made
this season by the national commis
sion due to the possibility of the loss,
by army draft of one or more players.
Report has It that the date may be

Has Quit The Mitt Game
DURING a session of court In Mil
waukee recently a young attor
ney from Chicago was defending,
a young man with a Hebrew name.
The case was before judge Heddlng
and at the conclusion of the same
the judge happened to speak to the
young man about some trivial matter
and the two got into a conversation.
"You look to be an athlete, young
man," remarked judge Heddlng as the
lawyer was about to depart "Ath
lete." replied the young man: "well.
I guess you hit it right judge. You
don't remember me. I guess."
"No. you have the best of me." said
judge Heddlng. "I do not remember
ever having seen you before."
"WelL I guess, judge, you would
have to go back quite a ways, for if
I remember rightly the last time you
saw me was in the ring at the old
Panorama building about 1602. when
I boxed a husky young featherweight
by the name of Jack Dougherty.
"I also fought other Milwaukee
boys In the same rinjr. Probably
you might remember me better
under the name of Willie McNa
mini, the bantamweight of Chi
cago." "Great smoke'" ejaculated the
judge. "You a fighter and Willie Mc
Namara at that. Well that Is cer
tainly going back some, but I remem
ber the time very welt indeed. Things
must have taken an awful change
with you to get away from the boxing
game into law practice, but you have
my amcerest wishes, young man, for
a more successful future than you
had in the ring."
It is very true that young attor
ney was none other than Willie Mc
Namara. the former fighter of Chi
cago. It was during the old days
when Jack Dougherty. Maurice Say
ers. Charlie Berry, Jimmy Clabby,
Charlie Neary and other well known
fighters were just getting into the
limelight McNamara. who was also
fighting such boys as Buddy Ryan,
jacK Keere ana otners in unicago,
was considered a star and his fight
ing was of the sensational order.
Willie, however, did not stick to the
fighting game, but drifted away and
took up the study of law.
That he has made a success of
hla new voratlon la evident from
the fact that he la now estab
lished In very fine quarters In the
