In spite oT the frigid weather a fair
sized crowd witnessed two of the
grandest pitchers' battles staged in
the league in sonic time. It was a
youth against veteran when the Fed
eral Plate-Mason game started ano
this time ths veteran won out. The
Masons succeeded in nosing ahead by
a 3 to 2 score and downing the West
Ottawa glassmakcrs of any pennai t
hope they held in mind. In the sec
ond encounter Dan Riordan looked the
better in his argument with Bert Vioh
mann, who did the twirling for the
Moose. The K. of C.'s won by a score
of 5 to 3.
First Game.
In tho first encounter no scores
were hung up during the first stanza.
With two gone Heiberg poked a dou
ble Into the bleachers and remained
on second while Vallat whiffed.
Schumacher poked out a double at the
Mason turn in hitting and remained
on second while three stickers whiffed.
In the second Lark was given life
at first by McRvoy's error on Led
rieh's peg. He went to second while
Carrier was cutting the wind and a
passed ball left him at third. Lark
ucored on Kelly's out at first.
With two down In the fourth Mc
Evoy drove out a pretty triple, llraln
ard's doublo allowed him to score with
the first tally.
In the fifth the Masons scored
when Eichelberger singled and went
second on a passed bull and scored
,;:Kte9arker for the Mason
The winning ... seventh.
Ic tribe was put over in tire
McEvoy was given a ticket-to
my
base. Irion singled and the next two
wcrfi easy outs and the runs were neij
on first and second. Eichelberger
pushed out a double, sending McKtvoy
homo and leaving Irion on third.
With two on Randall failed to hit in
the pinch.
Second Game.
With big Dan Rlorda.i working in
championship style the Moose gang
found it a hard way to get around the
paths. Vlehmann twirled a nice gaine,
but when hit tho blows went lor extra
bases. Six of the eight drives made
by tho K. of (J.'s were for extra bases, j
Ou the other hand the Awatto Lodge
were easy sailing fur Uior:lan, who.
held his opposents to two hits u.itu j
the final trame. Altho the score was !
close, it lacked the usual fighting
spirit that has characterized both j
nines in previous games. j
,, The K. of (J.s went Into easy sailing i
by piling up four runs in the first, j
three frames. From then on they eon-;
tented themselves by keeping the j
Moofiedom from crossing the pan. i
1 iiv ouo iut uvei onu lun 01
Beeond without the aid of a hit, they j
scored one in the sixth on Jule Val- j
lat's triple and another in the seventh '
on two singles, Both teams gave their
pitchers excellent support. By virtue;
of their winning last evening the K. j
of C.s have practically cinched a place!

Economic Preparations.
(!a the Event of War With Germany
If the invasion cf ths Teuts should
come vte had better start new and
preprre for war. First cf nil there's
I goin' to be a shortage of food. We
recommend the tavin'of the crackers
off the whip cause in the civil war '
j they enly gave the soldiers one crack
er a meal. All schooners, big and .
mall should be seized immediately,
licenses need not be revoked. Every
body should be made to plant gardens
next spring, in order that they'll be :
large number lookin' for fiats. First i
of all we ought to plow up th city
parks and start raising potatoes be-
fore the prises raisd higher. Hus
bands with military training should
stay out latr nights so they'll will be
fit for the hardships during war time.
The government should immediately
seize all the limburger cheese and gar
lic in the country and hold it in store
for poison gases. Of course, if they
really got in here we could fool 'em
a little. We might ask them to wait
until Dr. Schroeder bought a drink
and they'd die of thirst, or we could
lock them up in a room with Ed Vad
nok and let 'em bite their lips off, or
let them talk to Toby Doolan
awhile and laugh themselves
death.
Those Walks.
The other evening we called the at
tention to the supervisors of streeti
regardin' that huge snow drift at the
north approach to the Illinois rive;
bridge. With yestrday's snow stow
the pile is still higher and its goin' tr
be a mighty hard task for South Ot
tawa rcsidnts to get by there. For
the love of Mike, dean these walk'
off or else give us some shovels and
we'll clean 'cr.i our3elf.
Disappointment.
On account of the strenuous social
calendar many of the Badgers wert
unable to attend the Moose dance last
evenin." .The Badgers are gettin' al
groomed up for the big masqucra6
next Monday night and ya'll have tc
watch their speed then.

on parsing. The College hunch showed
their best form on passing and got
over the smalt playing area in nice
stvle.
Omiiig the first hah of the game the ,
I high school lads were forced to shoot '
i for the basket at the east end of the
; "gym," which is fastened to the brick ;

! t! e ball was declared "out," thus giv
i ir.g the College bunch a great num-
h. r of ehancea at passing. The Co!
! leRO lads, however, were at the same
; disadvantage in the second half and
! conse-ipicntly did not score as many

BOXER NOT FEARED BY AMERI
CAN FIGHTERS DEMANDS A BIG
O'FER FOR BOUT WITH AUS
TRALIAN CHAMPION.
New Yolk, Feb. '. Al McCoy hasn't
the most enviable reputation in the
world as a fighter. His prowes3 in
the ring isn't dazzling enough to hurt
anyone's eyivight. Hut Al has cut
quite a figure in the financial ring.
In fact, he is somewhat of a bear
when it comes to enticing the elusive
coin of the realm into the McCoy eof

Grant Hugh Brown, the promoter,
fir-t olfcred McCoy J3,iK.) for the
j match. That was a big sum of money
for McCoy.- Browne thought that-Ms
1 original offer w-as quite liberal. So
did the fistic public.
But Al up and hollered "Quit ycr
kiddin.' Wadda ya think I am?"
Ani Pop Rudolph which is the real
family name echoed the words of hii.
illustrious son. He vowed that his
boy should not soil his mittens on
Parey for one red sou less than $10,

the McCoys, or Rudolphs, are .3W hit
VTi. We've simply got to hand them
credit, but the fact remains that ! arcy
and his manager, Tim OSullivan,
were instrumental in helping McCoy
get what he demanded.
Darcy figured that McCoy, being
the American champion, was the logi
cal man for him to meet, in his hrst
bout here, lie thought so for two rea
sons. In the t: r t place, Parcy was told
that McCoy would be soft picking for
him. In the second place, Lea felt
that if he could knock off the chain-plorif-hip
ho would have a strong claim
to the worlds title and would pave
his way to wealth In a jiffy.
It made no difference to the Aus
tralian how the public might Iook on
such a match. And, for that matter,
the light fans will fall, Just because
they want, to see Darcy. McCoy, eo to
speak, is merely filling in.
There was much wrangling and fig
uring before Darcy and McCoy were
finally matched. Tim O'Sulllva.i, who
Is managing Darcy, was so eag-T to
get McCoy's name to a contract that
he offered $2,,"i,0 out of Darcy's end if
Browne would ante UP ft 1'ke amount
to raise the original $.1,000 to McCoy s
figure of $1 c.o 0. Still Browne refu.sed
and O'Sullivan was on the verge of
making up the amount himself when
Browne finally capitulated.
Perhaps Darcy is correct, in His be
lief that ho will eventually get more
prrrtlgo out of meeting McCoy firs',
but. unless l:e shows McCoy up In the'r
ten-round bout on March 3 lie will not
be considered a $3'V!0'! attraction i.y
other promoters.
Tha L'arcy can defeat McCoy lst
reasonably certain. But whether or I
not he can tin it. decisively In ten1
rounds Is the question. The iwenty
round mute I s Party's dlntance,
he tuny find it. a bit difficult to

and

The fistic public: will watch the out.

not because McCoy will be Darcy's I
