worth in the school tf slug before.
Where Old Guard Reigns.
The younger school has not yet
succeeded in breaking up the reign
of the Old Guard in the American.
This has been largely due to the
prevalence of Ty Cobb. The Old
Guard leadership here embraces
Ty Cobb, Joe Jackson, Eddie Col
lins and Tris Speaker, with Bob
Veach in between the two schools.
Those leading the oncoming gen
eration are George Sisler, Sam
Rice, Babe Ruth and others.
And , drive to supplant Cobb,
Jackson, Speaker and Collins will
need a lot of speed and power.
Cob has started poorly this sea
son, but Jackson, Speaker and Col
lins got away at a bounding clip.
Cobb will soon be under way
again, and you can figure for your
self the job that awaits the young
er generation when it comes to
breaking through this line of vet
erans. la the National league Wagner
and Magee have faded out; Dau
bert, Wheat, Coney and a few oth
ers are still making threatening
gestures, but it is Roush. Hornsby,
Groh, Young, etc., who have taken
charge of the situation. , '

Islanders Annex Saturday Tilfby
Close Score of 4 to 5 Beat
The Islanders and the Bloomers
engaged in a pretty battle at Dou
glas park Saturday afternoon that
the former annexed by one score
the count being 4 to 3. It was a
great duel between pitchers, with
the Islander swatsmiths counting
enqugh runs in the first five in
nings to win with Stewart travel
ing along in easy style. But in the
seventh, with only a two-run ad
vantage. Tighe yanked Stewart
when the big fellow showed a sign
of wildness in passing the first two
men to face him. Dennis went in
with none out and the first two to
face him sacrificed, the last one be
ing a fly ball that brought a runner
from third. That was all. in the
last two innings Bloomington went
out in order.
The Islanders took the lead in
the first inning, getting to Romine's
delivery in brilliant style. Jones
cracked a triple to the fence be
tween left and center and scored a
moment later on Benson's hit to
right field. Benson went to third
on Smith's hit to right and scored
on Miller's sacrifice fly.
Bloomington tied it by getting
one in the second and one in the
fourth, but the Islanders came right
back in their half of the fourth
and went ahead again with another
tally. The lead was increased by
another one in the fifth. Blooming
ton threatened, but could not carry
through in the seventh. Score:

ROCK ISLAND HIGH ATHLETES
SPRING SURPRISE ON 10VAUS
AND WIN QUAD-CITY HONORS
Islanders Show Unexpected Super-
iority In the Dashes and
- Weight Events. .
Rock Island walloped the over
confident Iowans by the score of 60
to 4S in the quad-city outdoor
track meet held Saturday afternoon
on the East Moline track. Daven
port had been sure of victory but
the Islanders' superiority in the
dashes and weight events caused
the upset. This is the first time
since 1906 that Davenport has been
defeated in the event Moline came
third with 28 counters and East
Moline brought up the rear with
one lone point. .
The Islanders made most of their
points in the short dashes, copping
three firsts, three seconds, and two
thirds in the 50, 100 and 220-yard
dashes. With this lead the locals
had no difficulty in forging ahead
and finally copping the meet. Har
per of Rock Island took the indi
vidual honors of the meet with 16
points. He placed first in the 50,
100, and 220-yard dashes and was
third in the broad jump. Captain
Milstead ran him a close race for
individual honors, amassing 15
points in all. Milstead placed first
in the shot put, discus, and 440
yard dash. Paddock took 12 in the
meet, and Lofgren, although he
didn't cop a great number of
points, made good time in his
events, especially in the relay.
No records were broken and the
meet was a little below the stand
ard set. in past years. The Island
er relay team composed of Harper,
Paddock, Lofgren and Milstead,
which won the half-mile by a good
margin, may go to the scholastic
relay meet to be held at North
western university in the latter part
The Islanders took the lion's
share of the points in every event
that they placed. Davenport took
the firsts in the low and high hur
dles, Dufnn the Rock Island entry,
running third. In the pole vanlt
and the mile run Moline took the
lead. Rock Island failed to place
in these events, but more than
made up for it by copping all of
the dashes, the 440, all the weight
events and the broad jump. Rock'
Island succeeded in copping six
first places to the red and blue
squad's four. Davenport lacked
the necessary second and third
point getters to make up the other
Jennings of Davenport was the
star for his school, taking first in
both the low and high hurdles.
This was expected from the begin
ning and was no surprise. Shick
took the half-mile, as was also ex
pected, but his time was 3 sec
onds slower than his record on the
indoor track. With Ullemeyer dis
abled with a sprained -wrist. Sears
of Davenport had little difficulty in
capturing that event Davenport
took the mile relay with little ef

Cubs made it seven straight yester
day by trimming the Braves again

before, just as the score was.
Alexander held the Braves to six
safeties and would have shut them
out but for a boot by Hollocher in
the seventh round, which was the
inning in which they scored off
Vaughn the day before. The Cubs .
clustered their hits successfully in
two innings off Bunny Hearn, and
the only divergence from Satur
day's fracas was that they got busy
Mitchell's men massed six of their
