In a listless gamo marred with con stant wrangling by the visitors, the Highlands defeated the Smokers 3 to 2. What looked like a good Interesting game turned Into a near riot when Webb lost his head and attacked Um pire Knowlton for calling Love safe at the plate in the oierhth limine The trouble started early m the game when the ump called Turner back to the plate after he got hit by a pitched ball ruling that Turner had not tried to get out of the way but Instead stood there to get hit. This aroused Turner's fighting blood and he Jumped at the ump and was on the verge of striking him but the ump's stern face must have cooled him down some for he soon took his place at tho plate. Turner certainly looked funny Jumping around the big umpire line a banty rooster trying to fight a big game cock. After that sev eral players tried to pick an argument with tho umpire only to be ordered back to their places by his stern rul ing. Dellinger on one occasion tried to argue with him but nothing doing, for he promptly was ordered back to the bench and you Just should have mad that he looked cross-eyed and made that he looked cross-eyed and he wanted to explode, but he wisely waited until he got into the coop and then he let out. My, oh my, of all the language that was floating around In the coop why you could see blue and red smoke rise from all sides. It was a good thing that he had. the muffler on or otherwise some people would have been shocked. The last half of tho eighth inning brought on the climax. After Love had worked Alvarez for a free transporta tion to first, Poland tripled to left and at the crack of the bat LovJ tore around the bases like a fleet footed deer and slid safely onto the plate. In returning the ball Farrlor made a pretty throw to Alvarez and he pegged to Wobb to catch Love at the plate but was a few seconds too late. Webb immediately flew off the han dle and really did not know what he was trying to claim. He finally claimed that Love had failed to touch the plate when sliding but the little fellow held his position just as he landed and there was no doubt what ever for he wis sitting all over that plate. Tho decision was absolutely Just and the Smokers had no kick coming. Webb then cussed tljo umpire and struck at him and a general dis order followed. Dellinger then also let out with some verbal phrases that were not very becoming to a gentle men and the umpire immediately called the officers to have tho two players put off th'e grounds- Officer Tillls with his able assistant 'ap peared on the field but for some reas on or other did not quite understand the situation and withdrew again. Finally when the teams lined un fer play the umpire again called for ths officer to escort these two players off the grounds. After mobilizing hta squad, Officer Tillls performed hh duty as Instructed and order was soon restored. Well, it is all over now and let us hope that such thing will never oc cur again, for it is a disgrace to or ganlzed baseball and both the local players and fans do not wish to be mixed up in such an affair. This Is tho second time that those knockers were guilty of this offence and let us hopo It will be the last time. Tho players are all aware of tho fact that they must abide by the um pire's ruling and If they keep that in mind there would bo less trouble. Those that don't know it better get it Into their head, and If to their mind the umpire makes a wrong de cision the best and only way Is to protect his decision in writing to the proper offlcala. ' The local players and also the fans must be congratulated on their splendid conduct during this trouble and the advise given by our playerB had much to do that nothing further happened. Culpepper was on the firing line for the locals and kept the hits well scattered and was especially good In punches. Alvarez also twirled a fair game and with proper Bupport would have given the locals a hard rub. He seemed to weaken the latter part of the game and we expected the lo cals to break up the game any time. Well, on to second place; let's beat Bartow today and chances are good.

WAGES OF PROFESSOR AND MOTORMAN One of the Harvard graduates who 11 are now in Cambridge planning its campaign for an endowment fund of 11,000,000 for the university asked President Lowell why Harvard facul ties of former days had more eminent members than now, and was thus en lightened: "There are lots of good fish in the sea still and plenty of good fish here, but they don't get enough to eat." And with regard to this Ques tion of sustenance, posters displayed in the college yard showing figures of a professor and motorman bears the inscription: "A motorman gets 60 cents an hour, a professor 18. Which is worth more, gentlemen, minding the train or train ing the mind?" That is a question which is bother ing other people besides college pres idents. In its broad application It Is the present problem of all "Intellec tuals" In its bearing on their future place in the economic scheme. The relation of the motorman's wages to the professor's causes a good deal of serious thinking on the part of the young men just leaving college to make their way in the world. ." Ni At one time a professorship was a magnet which drew the best minds of the country to the college. But does the honor of the post compensate nowadays for the financial sacrifice? Is the gnat lawyer willing to limit his activities to the classroom for an an nual salary no larger than a single fee? That a civil engineer or chemist or banker of the first rank should for sake the munificent rewards of his talent for a professor's Income is not to be expected. Industry offers the great prizes ,and high thinking alone with plain living has generally gone out of fashion. The trouble Is that even the most generous college en dowment conceivable cannot provide the "big fishes" with as much to eat as they can find in the open sea. New York World.
