F Benson, Smith ana Mcuuire were tht bit suns of the day with the stick. Benson and Smith splitting tie first honors with four hits out if fire trips to me piate ror eacn one. McGuire got three out of tour. Benson hit a pair ol douoies, one striking the center field fence when it lit and the other hitting the same fence on the first bounce. Smith cracked one to deep right field for i triple, besides getting in on a doubla base clout. . The Islanders appeared to be able to score at will. The Tots got i marker in the first inning and the Tighemen came right back in their half of the round and counted two runners at the plate. Then in the third Terre Haute caused more tem porary damage. It listed though only until Rock Island got a chance to swing the stick again in the wma inning. The home team reg istered four in the third, and after that were never beaded, even for half an inning. The runs kept coming in at a steady rate. Stewart DerrlckedV The Brownies got to Stewart tor six blows and five runs in four and one-third innings, and Jack O'N'sil was sent to the mound to chick the threatening Tots. O'Xeil performed valiantly and stopped further scoring by the visitors un til the seventh inning. Then he walked the first two men to face him and O'Berta doubled, but only one scored, because It appeared that the ball might be caught by tha fielder. At this point Jones aa sent to the mound and he topped them after another run bad counted in the inning by means of a sacrifice fly. The Tots got two hits off O'Neil and none off Jones in two and two-thirds innings. Jones pitched to eight men and the I eight went out in order. Glock lasted four innings, In that time the Islander bat artists found his offerings to the extent of 10 base knocks and nine runs. At the itart of the fifth Keenan, a pee wee of a left-hander, went to the mound for the visitors. He got by that inning without a scratch, but in the remaining three allowed five blowi and three runs. So that ewrythins looked pretty much alike to the Islanders intent upon sweetening the batting averages. Players as I mps. i The game was a long drawn out afiair. Starting at 3 o'clock, it end ed at 6:30. For some reason or Other a regular umpire was not available, Jones being ordered else where, and Pitcher Dennis of the Wanders and a Terre Haute play er aubatituted in the roles of arbi-' ten. Dennis worked half the game on balls and strikes and the Terre Haute man the rest of the time. Both did the work well, hardly a question being raised by cither side over decisions. Both men display ed an absolute Impartiality for either aide. Etas Here for Series. Evansville is here today for three lames, after which comes Bloom ington.

The boon, a peer of lovelorn yapps, For tillum art has no knack; He only snaps and snaps and snaps His sweetie with his kodak. He snaps her down upon the farm, He snaps her in a boat, He snaps her with each lovely arm - Around a billy .peat; And if a little calf should stray From whence it ought to sprawl. Ha does not shoo the calf away, But snaps, her, calf and all. When ev'ning shadows shroud the day And star gems gleam afar. They put the snappershoot away And beat it for a car. Tha boob floats o'er the snaps he shot With vanity profound, Until he finds that ha forgot To turn the film around. After playing Donnaconna to win the Kentucky derby, a cartain dodo, probably out of deference for the gander of entry, cracked that she had broken a garter in the back stretch.

"7 YOUNGSTERS IN GOOD SHOWINGS IN BIG LEAGU Le Bourvean, Last Tear With Poo ria. Hailed as the Best of Season's Crop. . BT HENRY L. FARRELL. (United Press Staff Correspondent.) New York, May 11. Fourteen spring debutantes are mixing in the swirl of diamond society like veteran dowagers. ... j Eight promising youngsters have . stepped out into the American I league and six have made their ini- tial bow in the National league. j The Phils seem to have been the most fortunate in securing two ca pable youngsters Le Bourveau, a I slugging outfielder, and Ralph Mil-1 ler, a third baseman. Le Bourveau is hitting .433, second in the league, and has crowded Irish Meusel out of a job in the field. The Boston Red Sox also picked up a star batter in Hendryx, an outfielder who is batting .366 in the cleanup position. Neis, a young outfielder from Canada, set a hot pace with Brooklyn at the start of the race. He is still a brilliant fielder but his batting is falling off. Bob Meusel, the so-called "Ruth of the Pacific coast," played a few games with the Yanks. He seems to have everything but the spirit. Grimm, a new youngster, has ably filled a hole for George Gib son on the first corner of the Pi rate infield, and the Cards are also using a youngster at first base in Jack Fournier. Jimmy O'Neill, a young shortstop with the Washington Nationals, is one of the best of the season's new crop. He is a brother of Steve O'Neill, the star Cleveland back stop. Connie Mack has almost a kin dergarten. Only three players on the Athletics are over 25. The old wizard introduced three promising kids this season in Griffin, a first baseman; Galloway at short and Dykes on third, a smooth-working combination that pulled a triple play yesterday. HOMER DECIDES GAME IN FAVOR OF BLOOMERS, 5-4 Rockford, 111., May 11. Snyder's homer over the left field fence in the seventh decided a close but poorly played game in favor of the visitors. The batting of Pearce and Brant and the fielding of Schollen berger were features. Score: R.H.E. Bloomington 5 7 2 Rockford .'....4 8 4 Batteries Romine and Snyder; Hill and Rigsby.

A precedent will be broken Thursday night at the Empiro rink when boxing fans will be treated to, five bouts instead of four, as has been adhered to heretofore. The three preliminaries will be of four rounds' duration, the semw windup of six rounds and the main attraction of 10 rounds. Figure it up and you have 28 rounds of mill ing to witness during the evening, providing of course that a kayo or two is not introduced. Ever since Tommy Comiskey trimmed the sails of Dennis O'Keefe in the Empire rink early last win ter and then came back shortly after and laced "Bum" Stuebmej to the queen's taste, the fans have been clamoring for his return. And the fact that the St Paul welter is matched against the redoubtable "Goats" Doig of Spring Valley this time makes it all the more inter esting. Doig gave Stuehmer about as classic a trimming as Tommy did, and added to this he is gener ally credited with a victory over Dennis O'lveefe recently. In view of his late accomplishments, the dope appears about evenly divided so that the only way everyone can be satified is to be there and watch the boys tangle for 10 fast rounds. The matter of weight will un doubtedly favor the Spring Valley man. Both are scheduled to weigh in at 14S pounds at 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon. Comiskey will probably scale considerably under 14a pounds and by ring time Doig may be seven or eight pounds above Comiskey. Fans Like Erips.

Eddie is a flashy lightweight who believes in keeping the other man busy defending himself. His foot work is something unique and tion of great strength combined with light weight. The light weight decreases the burden on the engine and their . strength provides en durance, i They have been important factors in the success of Max well the world over, in its ever increasing friendships, in ita great growth.
