The games which were m-ltnessed by a good crowd of bugs were rolled on the St. Ju'.ien alleys.

But when It was noised around that Chance was to get the biggest piece of change ever offered a ball player old Charlie up and says, the idea! It ain't so, Johnny Evers is to get the most. So Charles has sort o" got it on : us there. We have to believe him, al though we wtsh he'd speak up and mention just what Johnny's wages are. Well, be that as it may, it's a pipe they're all going to wear silk socks this season.

Tntil Donlin had the misfortune to sustain an in jury that robbed him of his speed he would have been considered a prize by any manager. Now he is able to bring only the waiver price, with no great amount of jostling among the National league clubs for the privilege of paying that. The Pirates of 1S12, so say critics who watched them closely, appeared to have a great ball club.

Nobody can deny that Larry retains most of his boyish bat - ting vigor and that he still must be numbered among the five cr six great batsmen of the time. Yet he cannot any longer come up to the standard in speed and therefore stands to have his emoluments cut. Perhaps it would be more accurate ; to say that "applied speed'' is what major league managers desire now.

Eacks by the ccore, while ought to get, more money. Sam argues that vaudeville stars and such get $2,000 a week and don't play to half the crowds ballplayers do. He points out that where there are a hundred people at the theatre there are a thou- sand at the ball park. We don't want to -get mixed into the argument, but we think there's a modicum of truth in what, you say, Sam. Ball players will begin having gout and appendicitis like the rest of the moneyed class. They'll drive out to the "lot" in their $12,000 70 h. p. "Mer-cy-me's" and complain about the deuc it is something of an event when the chemist snags one. Another case is that of Joe Jackson, the shoeless slug ger of the Naps. There is no doubt that Joseph can hit; any pitcher who has faced him will remove any linger- in8 doubts to the contrary if you ask nim- Considering only ability to i,pouna tne can, joe ranhs er ciose io Cobb, and the Clevelander probably can run almost as fast as Tyrus. Yet to compare Jackson and Cobb in gen-, eral playing ability and value to a dub is ridiculous. The Nap lams out a base hit and when he gets to first he Is through, immediately descending to the level of mediocrity. The Peach connects for a Eingle and is just beginning to be dangerous. Jackson is likely to stay on a bag a week unless somebody happens to move him along with a hit or sacrifice, while if you don't watch Tyrus carefully, he will be on before the pitcher can deliver three balls. Cobb's is "applied speed:" Jackson's the only sort of swiftness possible when a six-cylinder pair of legs' Is han dicapped by a one-cylinder brain. Ea8t Ender8 Lose Game .

All regular professors, j numbering 12 in all, axe affected by the crder, which will add $200 annually to t'ie salaries they are now receiving. . Prcfessor Jules Mauri tzon, who holds j the chair in Swedish, was given a j raise of $300, which places him on an j equal basis with all the other perma- j nent professors of the college. i It has been felt for some time that , th instructors in the college have been underpaid, but the financial i status of the college has not permit-1 t"d any increase. The resignation of j Picfessor I. M. Anderson, however, ; brought the matter to a head, and in ' order to retain the present efficient ' faculty the board decided that a more i liberal policy was necessary. i All efforts to agree on a successor to Professor Anderson at yesterday s ; session proved fruitless. Although j five candidates were considered, the board could not unite on a man. Wheni adjournment was taken a committee j composed of Rev. J. Terrell, Rev. Al-j fred Appell and Dr. A. Johnson, was j appointed to make a selection and pre-1 sent its recommendation at the next j n.eeting of the board. Dr. Andreen was asked to continue the work of in-; 6tmction in the Greek classes. Professor C. O. Granere, assistant j librarian, was granted a leave of ab sence from April 1 to Sept. 1, on ac-1 count of poor health. Other matters! of a routine nature were disposed of ar.d the budget for the coming year was passed. I Augustana synod may meet in the j twin cities for its 53rd annual meeting j in June. This possibility became ap parent yesterday at the meeting of the i board of directors of Augustana col lere, when Dr. L. A. Johnston, presi dent of the synod, announced that no invitation for the synodical meeting had so far fceen received from any con gregation in the synod. The board of directors thereupon decided to extend an invitation to the synod to meet here in case no other lnviattion is received in the meantime. It was generally anticipated that the synod would meet this year In Jamestown. N. V. The First Lutheran church ot that city, however. Is now engaged in building operations which may alter its plans. Probability Is that the 1314 session of the synod will be held there instead. If the synod meets here this year it will be the second time in three years. The 50th annual Bession of the synod was held at Augustana college iii 1910 in connection with the jubilee celebration.
