Tlal Chase has been' given some reams of'adverse criticism since he was suspended by Cincinnati one day this v.-eoK Cliase was accused of not iilaying his best game for the Reds, the same charge having been lireferre.l against him while a member of the Yanlcees several seasons a.go. 'N'ow. Chase was always know'n as a haril man to handle and this is not exactly a defence of him. liinvever. according to Cincinnati writers and club oHicials. Chase has been one of the most docile players the Reds have had since he jojned the club. Had he sought to make trouble lie could have caused great .gobs of it when Herzog was traded to .Vew York. A.t that time Chase -was of-fer-'d tlie management of the Reds and refused. He iiad not only the following of the fans, but also of the players �Prince Hal'* is one of the greatest stars in the game. Past thircj--tive years of age. he pjays like youngster in his twenties. One thing above all others that Chase loves is to he a winner, and he plays with that object in view. There was never any complaint about his work when the Reds stood a chance to be a runner-up in the race, hut when they fell and the other players on the cli/b began losing interest and seeking jobs in other fields, it was only natural that Cliase should likewise lose some interest. If Chase has been suspended for losing intorust alone, the managers of at least twelve other clubs can start applying the same remedy to men on their clubs. Kvery team that is not fighting for the pennant has placers on it who are loafing, just fin ishing the season. Apropos to the subject, Christy .Mathewson ha.s been no howling success as a manager and here are easier fellows to get along -vvith. His methods of handling his team caused no paeans of praise from the Tigers this spring and evidently not from the home fans, who are clamoring for his scalp. Mathewson's personality is all against him as a manager or a mixer, and lie can be numbered as another star from a great loam who went forth from and failed as a big league pilot.

Larry said, "and I guess I'm too old to fight. Perhaps I was getting too old to play baseball, although there are a few-pitchers who still think to the contrary." Asked if he -would play in the proposed senil-pro league to be organized next year, Larry said: "I think when a man gets to be as old as 1 am he needs more practice and warming up than he would get by playing only on Saturday and Sundays. It begins to look as if I had played my last game of professional baseball unless the war ends ""next year. It it goes on indefinitely the layoff will not do me any good and i will be through when the old game is resumed."

Who could have supposed that the shots fired by a cracked brained student in the streets of Sarajevo m that day in June four years ago would have richotted around tlfc world until they found lodgment in the lender losoni of American baseball? Y^t so it is. Once set in motioi>, the chain of events has proceeded with inexorable! directness. Hope for the victim has i practic;.-lly been abandoned. The I mighty hero, once gigantic in his] srengtb. the idol of millions and the source'Of extraordinary incomes to iHtmeious healthy yonii;; fellows of an athl-jt'c type,- has all but given up the ghost. Tiiis is awful. What ay�^ wo going to do al.i>ut it? How will tin; po))ulation exi't without the. big '.cague schedules? How can we eat breakfast without knowing wlio is going to pitch today? How can wo dinn without the score? How will the ball players get along without a chance to throw their bats to the ground to indicate their opinion of the umpire? Will some of these husky invalids have to go to work or even to war? What of the umpires' years spent in accumulating record breaking veputation for stupidity? Who can the magnates quarrel with now*?^How wiH the United States keep itself from bursting with curiosity as to the size of Christy Mathewson's bat. or the condition of a hangnail on Johnnie Ever's thumb? What will become of all the lies that have I'Ron told in order to gel av/ay from \vork when the Giants were in town? Will thrift stamps provide an ade-filiate substitute for the delirious excitement of baseball pools? How will -the newspapers get to press without the mug of Muggsy McGraw? In spite of Jupiter PUivlus and hjs efforts to interfere, the local ball toss-ers and a Taber aggregation engaged in mortal combat here on Saturday night, tho liome lirews winning by the one-sided score of 16-4. Tho game was lilayed in a driz-;lii!g rain that threatened at any nvmnto to stop the proceedings, but the players struggled through eight inning.s. with the result never in doubt after the soecond stanza. The Tabor crow got llie first man around in the first, while Lethbridge drew a blank. In the second after lilanking Talfer, the bottom end of the batting string started, in to do things and before they concluded the performance the whole nine bad battled antl five counters were rung U]). In the third three more came our way. while in the fourth two more'Wcre added. Tabi'r meanwhile drawing blanks. Taber got one in the fifth and Iwfl in the eighth, while the locals added three in the 7th and three in the eighth. Huhhs w'as the scoring Ipad-er for tho evening, crossing the pan tour times. The evening's are getting short and the ball season is drawing to a close, but an effort will be made to stage a couple more games bt^fore September 1st when the big leagues go out of business. Rain interfered somewhat � on Saturday evening and the crowd was rather slim, but the locals put up good ball and big crowds are expected to see the locals in action for the closing games.

ARE FOR DISTANCE Since distance has become the bugbear of the golf links, and as architects have universally accepted tho course of 6.000 yards and more, makers of drivers, spoons and brassies an; vying with tlio raanutacturcrs of goK balls for something which will help the expert as well as the dufCor ot get over the ground easier. In the last few years many improvements have been'made in golf balls, but it remained for Peter Robinson, professional at the Yalimundasis (N.Y.) Golf club, to, discover a new club, one which he giiaranleos will send tho elusive bull flying over all ot the rough and much of the fairway ot any" course. Robertson's innovation is not in the build of tho wooden clubs,'but rather in the finish. He has weighted the club from the bottom, putting the weight under the ball instead oC directly behind the centre of tho ball, which has been customary in most drivers and brassies. Robertson has built a brass plato which covers tho "bottom of the club bead and dips up the back ot the club head of a point just below whore tho centre of tho ball would fit. Ho contends that a ball, to get the greatest distance, should be hit so that the greatest weight ot the club is below the middle of the ball. Furthermore, there is claimed for tliis most recent invention in golf the fact that there is stability ot weight, such as cannot bo secured In a club weighted with load, tho Robertson plato being screwed to tha bottom of the face of driver or brassic." as the case may be. The principle also been applied to inittors. At the Yahmundasis club more lliau three-fourths of the wooden clubs arc ot the Robertson type, and the principle has bsen taken up as well by a number ot prominent goiters of other courses. Capt. George Black, former governor ot tho Yukon, and one of the best known ot northerners fighting in France has been wounded by gunshot in tho thigh, according to an olllcial cable received by his lather in'Vancouver. : : ? : : : > ? : : DE PAUMA BREAKS RECORD.
