A bolshevist t baseball fan in i iKansas ii
Kansas City disguised as a abanker abanker
banker has started an insidious insidiousand in insideouand dious diousand
and dangerous propaganda in inis
his h is suggestion that a batter be beallowed beallowed
allowed to steal first base The
idea is that if the batter cannot
hit the ball or wants to mix mixthings mixthings mixthings
things up he is to be allowed to toget toget toget
get to first firsluase base if he can before beforethe beforethe beforethe
the ball gets there This Kansas
City bolshevistbanker says that
i if appropriate rules are made madethe madethe
the trick will be done novelty noveltywill novelt noveltwill
will be provided for weary fans
The argument supporting this thisanarchistic thisanarchistic thisanarchistic
anarchistic plan is i that the peo people people ¬
ple want to see base ase Jun runnels ers in inaction inaction
action and that nothing pleases pleasesthem pleasesthem
them so much as to see a runner runnersteal runnersteal
steal a base In actual practice
it is claimed the slow winding windingup
up pitcher would be a disadvan disadvantage disadvantage ¬
tage and an batters could enliven
the situation by starting to steal stealand stealand stealand
and then turning back to the
home plate Opportunities for forsacrificing forsacrificing
sacrificing runners on other
bases are evident evidentThis evidentThis
This is indeed a bolshevik hey
business Some Somepeople people are not notcontent notcontent
content to let ti > ell enough alone
but are always hammering tne tnepoor tnepoor
poor pitcher He has troubles troublesenough troublesenough
enough now with various re restrictions restrict restrictions ¬

tion of resined and spit balls ballsand
and watching occupied bases basesand basesand
and not lastly the Babe Ruths Ruthsand Ruthsand
and nearBabes whom the fickle ficklepopulace ficklepopulace
populace are encouraging to toknock toknock
knock the ball out of the lot
And now it is proposed to multi multiply multiply ¬
ply his troubles by making him himwatch himwatch himwatchh
