The p* rmanent stands seat 22,000 but the time the first iTuue t>f the world's series is begun, new srats for 5.000 more persons will have been erected. In addition fans w he are not fortunate enough to obtain coupon tickets for stats will nd space for about 6,000 persons.
Early in August when Cincin tat I placed the New York Giants in what was considered by many baseball followers as the crucial j
game in the pennant race, slightly more that 31,000 persons were on »he ball grounds. From this it can bt seen that there will be no difficulty for at least 33,000 finding ■vantage places to view the games.
New seats in left and center I.eld extend over the sidewalk on Western Avenue and along York sire* t and thr new box seats are along the first and third base lines. Cincinnati city council elated over •ae Reds winning the pennant ga>e the club permission to erect seats • aer the sidewalks of Western a\e-nue and York street, closing the latter street to traffic for forty days. The playing field will be encroached upon in left and center \ field to the extent of possibly Is : * el and. about the same distance. behind the catcher’s position and along the first and third base lines. ' This will contract the plaxinu field somewhat, but ii will be possible I ie dri\* out legitimate three base hits in left field and home runs in the right.
Redland Field is considered the last word in baseball parks. It is situated at Western Avenue, Findlay and York streets in the western section of the city. The permanent stands are of concrete and steel and the property is owned b> the Cincinnati club. The building of the structure was started in September, 1911. and completed in April, 1912. the total cost running to $*599,06d.
The -.rand stand proper has a double deck, and on its left and right are single stands with roofs «>\ere them. The right field seats known as the bleachers have no roof shelter.
Box seats extend along the entire front of both floors of the grand stand proper. The press box is on the upper deck of the grand stand, but it was not considered large enough to accomodate all of the newspaper men and telepragh operators reporting the world series games, so extra seats writh a temporary' covering have been binit on the roof of the stand for the working newspaper men
Five street car Hines are routed by way of the ball park, while there is i not her a square away. The ball park can be reached in 2** minutes by street tar from the heart of tin city.
The playing tield is the pride of Garry Herrmann, president of the club, and chairman cl the National Baseball Commission. It lies feet below the stands with a embankment along the left extending to the fence enelos Left field is aborter from the plate than is the right field. field is the. sun field and players have found it dit'fi-fo judge flies batted in that

After the allocation to the United S’at*s. the ships were used as transports, but Great Britain has contended that their allocation was only temporary and that they were to ' Vert to the allied shipping pool for permanent assignment. J. H. Rosseter. director of operations for the shipping board, said today, however that the board holds that the original assignment was permanent.

a deadlock, wrhile both sides waited w’ith keen anticipation for Monday when a test of the claims of respective strength will be offered. Steel company officials expressed the fullest confidence that the opening of another week would see such a number of desertions from the ranks of the strikers that the backbone of the union resistance would be broken. Leaders of the strikers were equally optimistic in their predictions that the ranks of their followers would cot be broken.
In the meantime the strike generals were neglecting no effort to strengthen their position iii anticipation of the coming test. Mass meetings were held today and will be continued tomorrow throughout the Pittsburgh district and union organizers are striving for new recruits to fortify the resolution of their existing forces.
So far as the threatened strike of 40.000 workers in the plants of the , Bethlehem Steel Corporation is concerned, there is no defnite change in the situation. Neither side has , given any inclination of yielding and ; the union leaders are continuing their preparations for calling out the men Monday. Rumors of the I pending spread of the strike through jailied industries continue but without [definite basis on which to form a ! conclusion.

On one side would bt1 e nationalists and (militarists factions which would be opposed by th** Socialists. Several generals ar** credited with the intention of having the military factions
with a view of controlling the government, it being said they believe the weakness of those in power since the armistice brought the present deadlock. Some of these generals have already been mentioned as being in league with Capt. Gabriele D’Annunrio before the Fiume raid with the object of overthrowing by force the Nnitte cabinet and replacing it with a military dictatorship.
Foreign Minister Tittoai is said have expressed the belief that the first thing to be done in the present serious situation is for the cabinet to resign, thus eliminating one reason for discord. It is said this was the formation of a national cabinet. including all of the leaders of the chief political parties which would give the government the greatest possible power under the circa instances.

It was at a meeting of the bar association in Arkansas that some of the Colonel’s friends sought to confuse him by proposing that he respond to the toast, “Water.” Dashing off a bumper of the world’s greatest liquid, he spilled this:
“Mr. Toastmaster, Ladies and Gentlemen: You have asked me to respond to the toast “water," the purest and best of the things that God created. I wrant to say to you that I hi^ve seen it glistening in tiny drops on the sleeping lids of infancy:
I have seen it trickle dowrn the j blushing cheeks of youth and go in rushing torrent s down the the krinkled cheeks of age. I have seen it in tiny dewdrops on the blades of grass and the leaves of trees, flashing like polished diamonds when the morning sun burst in resplendant .glory over the eastern hills. I have ] seen it trickle down the mountain
sides in tiny rivulets with the music
of liquid silver, striking on beds of
I polished diamonds. I have seen it
iin the rushing rivers rippling over pebbled bottoms, purling about jut-; ting stones, roaring over pre-■cipitous falls, in its mad rush to
join the Father of Waters. I have I seen it go in slow and majestic
sweep to join the ocean. And I have seen it in the mighty ocean, on
whose broad bosom float the battle-fleets of all nations and the commerce of the world. But, ladies and gentlemen, I want to say to you now that as a beverage it is a dam failure.” *
