Haugdahl came to this country in J913 with Just enough money to get past the Immigration officers. He is now one of the highest salaried racers in America, and his winnings stack up nicely alongside the earnings of industrial chieftains. Haugdahl Is a Scandinavian and learned to drive a car In Europe. He appeared first In this country on the Minneapolis speed way In a Mercer.

Harper haa been hitting the ball hard all season, and the last averages re leased show him wielding his big stick to Jhe tune of .348, which is only one point, to the rear of Larry Gilbert, New Orleana outfielder, who led the league swatters last season with a mark of .49. Harper is a left-handed hitter, and at all timet was dangerous with the tick. t He had a fight on his hands this year, las Dixie- Carroll. Memphis, and Bing Miller, a teammate of Harper's, were on his trail at all time. Carroll led the league for some time but went Into a disastrous slump, and he was never able to overcome the effects of It, although pulling up considerably and ending the aeason as the runner-up to the leader. s In the season of 1901 Huleseman set the pace with a mark of .892. To Hill, of Nashville, goes the distinction of having get the nigh water mark among hitters in the Southern league, Hill having, banged the apple for the Juicy average of .416, which has never been approached. Hill set his mark In 1902. New Orleans has had three leaders among the stickers. In the season of 1903 Smith was on top with an aver age of .354,hlle in 1910 Joe Jackson was .supreme among the olouters with .356. Harry Welchonce, former Nashville and Atlanta outfielder, led the league cn twj consecutive occasions, finishing first In 1912 while playing with Nash ville and then came back In 1913 while playing with Atlanta and finished first. speakerIn'front. Tris Speaker, at present manager of the Cleveland Indiana, was with the Lit tle Rock Travelers In 1908 and led the league with a mark of .350. Spoke has since been hitting around the same fig ure In the majors, where he Is one of the leading mace-wleldera and out fielders. Ham Hyatt, the big -slugger of the Chattanooga club some time back, top ped the field In 1917, Hambone hitting the leather for an average of .334. Pete Knjsley, former Memphis out fielder, le the league in 1914, while playing with Birmingham. Pete crowned the pill for an average of .363, Ira Flagstead, formerly of Chattanooga now of the Detroit Tigers, set the pace In 1918, banging the ball for an average of .379. However, only 49 games were played that year owing to the world war. DAUBERT LED IN 1909. Jake Daub'ert, who formerly covered the first satchel for the Chicks, now on the door for tho world's champion Cin cinnati Reds, set the pace in the aea son of 1909. Jake hit the ball for an average of .314, and was one of the most dangerous stlck-wlelders in the association. To Harry Welchonca, formerly of Nashville and Atlanta, goes the dis tinction of having gotten the most hits during a season. Harry got 193 hits In 1913. while playing with the Crackers. Atlanta Carlton Moles-worth, the chubby leader of the Birmingham Barons, was In his day one of the league's hardest hitters. In the season of 1906. Gladys led the league with an average of .312. Moley was playing the outfield for the Mont gomery club, long since extinct. Baby Doll Jacobson, now with the St, Louis Browns, was supreme In 1918, while playing the outfield with Little Rock, There were 40 ,300 hitters In 1901, 23 In 1902, 34 In 1903, 10 In 1904, 17 In 1905, 3 irt 1906. five In 1907, six in 1908, four in 1909 and 1910, 12 in 1911, 14 In 1912, 10 in 1913, 13 In 1914, 17 in 1915, 14 in 191. 10 In 1917. 18 In 1918, eight In 1919 and 10 in 1920.

He might have kept up the string for several more games if he hadn't let one slip to the Phils by making a wild heave to first base one day. ROUND IN SHRINE GOL MOORE VS. CHINAMAN. Pal Moore, Memphis bantamweight, is to appear at the Southern Athletic club shortly in an eight-round bout against George Lee, a tuu-oioouea t.ninaniuu, who is one of the cleverest bantams in the business. Lee is from the Pacific coast, where he has been showing up well. He met Pete Herman, bantam champion, In New Orleans, a few weeks back, and gave Pete a hard battle, although crit ics awarded the verdict to the camou flage champion. Moore was here recently, and said he was getting ready for a hard cam paign this winter. Pal Is still trying to arrange for a title match with Herman, but Pete can't see Pal for the dust. Pal has made all kinds of Inducements to Her man and his manager, but they are aw-are of the fact that Moore would give Pete a pasting over the long route find win his crown, so they are wisely aylng off. It is doubtful If Herman can make the stipulated weight for a bantam any more, as would he required In a cham pionship, match, while Moore Is a legiti mate bantam. Memphis fans and ring followers gen erally consider Moore the real bantam champion, due to his victories over Her man, Jimmy Wilde, Joe Lynch, Kid Wolfe, Kid Williams and hosts of others who are around the top in the bantam flock.

Coach Meadors is already getting the squad j In shape for the fall games. 1 A clear ruddy complexion is an unmistakable sign of a vigorous, healthy vitality, while pimples on the face in dicate a depleted, run-down condition of the system. A healthy, attractive skin is practically within reach of ev ery woman, but it cannot be obtained from the use of cos-p-etics or so-called skin foods. First of all. it must be realized that the condition of the skin depends upon the condition of the blood, and no one can have a clear, ruddy, healthy skin un less the blood is robust and healthy and free from all im purities. Pimples and blotches on the face or other parts of the body are not only a source of embar rassment but they are also a warning from nature that should be promptly heeded. They indicate that the system needs a house-cleaning that foreign substance has crept in to the blood to interfere with its perfect performance, and that a serious clotrging up of the tissues and skin pores will result unless the proper treat ment is resorted to. And this naturally leads to the query: "What is the proper method of treating diseases of the skin?" A very common mistake is to rely upon local remedies, such as lotions, 'salves, ointments and other applications to the surface of the skin. But eczema, tetter, pimples, skin eruptions and similar dis orders that cause so much dis comfort, are not merely a sur face condition ; their cause lies deeper, and you will never be entirely rid of the . terrifying itching until you realize that their cause must be reached and eliminated. So the answer is: "Seek the cause and remove it." The real source of all skin disorders be ing in the blood, the proper treatment must be through the blood. Ruut out of the circu lation the disease germs, and vour skin will clear up and be come normal and healthy. The one remedy that is being used with uniform satisfaction is S.S.S , the fine old purely vegetable blood medicine that lias been nn the market for more than ha'f a century. This splendid remedy builds up the blood supply by removing from ;t rmv impurities, and gives ex cellent results in all cases of skin disorders. Throw aside your lotions and ointments and treat the source of your trouble, if you wish to be free from skin disorders and blemishes. Get a botlc of S.S.S. from your druggist todav, and you will be pleased with fjhat this remedy will accomplish. Then, if you want special expert ad vice you can obtain same with out cost bv writing fullv to Chief Medical Adviser, " 282 Swift Laboratory, Atlanta, vGa.
