MISSION HURLER SUICIDES IN EAST Clyde (Pea Kidge) Day. 32, a pitcher who was en route to Cal- ifornia to join the Mission committed suicide at Kansas City Wednesday by slashing his throat with a hunting knife. Day began his baseball career under Cabby Street at .loplin, Missouri, in 1921. He had played with Brooklyn, Cincinnati and the St. I.ouis Cardinals in the major leagues. Day's career also extended to I he Western League, where he was with Omaha, and the Pacific Coast League. No cause for his act has been learned here. Trapping flics is to be one of the new projects for the Pioneer Boys, a group sponsored by the local Metho- dist Brotherhood. Sugar and vinegar have been recommended as the most tempting baits. The boys will build their own traps j and the lad who jails the most flies will be suitably rewarded. Another new project for the Pio- neers will be clearing off the lot in the j rear of the First Methodist Episco- j pal church. All Pioneer boys are urg- i ed to appear for this work at S a. m. Saturday. i Still another project will be sanding j and smoothing off the Methodist gym- nasium floor. j N. J. James has just taken over the j leadership of the Pioneers. Mr. James i has an additional project planned for i his boys and that will mean, the pick- j ing up of glass, rocks and nails from i the city streets. [LANDINGS. P.
