His trip east did htm good, hfa bouts wfth Erne and Rocky Kansas of Buffalo teaching him many things to learn about mixing ft at close quarters but he is young and appears .to be willing so should go a long way yet. He has promised to meet Phil Bloom here and if he does he will have an opportunity of learning still more. ? ? ? ? ? V ? ? ?

Heinle Ziin shifted uneasily from his right to his left foot and moved, his "cud" over into the adjoining cheek. "We want to show these barbarians," continued the orator vehemontly, "the best sinew and BONE of our nation," and his vacillating index finger stopped momentarily as it pointed in the general direction of Heinle.Zlm. Heinle, shifted from "parade rest" to "attention," and looked uneasily at his companion. "We want to show these violators of human rights," went on the recruiting officer, "that our army exists not only in the abstract, hut in the CONCRETE," and he leaned over and glared like a basilisk directly at the hero of the world's series runup. Heinle suddenly pivoted on both feet, grabbed his companion by the arm and moved hastily on, with the remark that this was "no place for him." What could he have meant?

This may sound like ;i strong statement, Inn the type of alitor? directly affected should be experts in their criticism of the rule In question and many of these athletes will readily advance indisputable arguments. They will tell you that a hitter of the Wagner-HJnchman-Hornsby spades will often drive a long, scorching foul that misses being a homer or triple by falling a few inches on the wrong side of the white line. The batter has given his best effort, but to his discouragement at not having the ball stay inside is added tha sling of a preposterous penalty in the form of a strike. In all sense of fairness, a line smash of this kind Is no more of a strike than a wallop to centerfield. Modifying the foul strike rule to the extent of having only one foul called a strike and making a distinction bo-ween pop fouls and fiery smashes would be the proper corrective measure. The nature of the foul could be determined by the umpire, whose ruling should be arbitrary.-Exchange. Will Resume Sport - Fred Dawson to Coach Team Princeton, N.

Mo., Feb. called at j league offices here to contract calling for $3,000 a year. Magee looked at the contract, laughed and handed it back to Business Manager Bobbie Quinn. "I don't believe you know the provisions of my contract which expired last fall," said Magee. Quinn admitted that he did not. Magee explained: "If you will go through it carefully you will discover that the contract may be renewed only at an increase of five per cent, and, if my arithmetic is correct, that means something like $9,000 a year. Magee Is Correct When Quinn recovered lie investigated the matter and there came in contact with a peculiar thing in baseball contracts. The papers that Magee referred to belonged to his Federal league career. He had an ironclad contract. This assured him of $8,333 a year for playing and $1,107 for managing the Brooklyn Federals. When the Federal league blew up and Magee became a member of the New York Americans, the New York owners assumed the $8,333 part of tho contract and held on to a part of their obligations after Magee was traded to the St. Louis Browns for Amando Marsans. When Quinn fully understood the former conditions under which Ma. goe worked he told him lie tfould (From Our Own f.'orrcsnonilenO Nobleford, 1-Yh.

One thing Mr. ! Hunt, stated that the district could bo proud of was the fact th.it outside of debenture issues they hart never had to borrow a red cent to pay their way. ! All the running expenses of the school had been paid out of current revenue. A duet which was sweetly rendered by two littN' tots, Jean Jhichanan and Verna Harris followed, after which a little skci eh by the older boys and girls cut 11 led "-Medical Ail vice" was played. In the absence of Inspector Morgan who was unable to he present a short address was given by the Rev. .1. A. L'j.-lie.

A slvOich by the senior pupils entitled "Dr. CureaH" followed and if the style of doctor that was protrayed was typical of the. prairies then all should hope that they would be able to keep out of their consulting rooms. A boys chorus followed and was greatly enjoyed and then the young people of the village has their share in tiie program by the ud ins of the play "Nobleford JTyeeum." The president of the Tyeeum repeated remark: � That is so" was very much like Mr. Asquith's "Wait and ^ee" and very often had the wrong effect on the audience. The acting was good but at times rather rough. "That is so'." Mr. W. J. Buchanan followed with a solo and secured a well deserved encore. W. A.

In his opening remark Mr. Buchanan said that he was pleased to be present at the formal opening of tho school. He was not surprised at such a school being built in the Noble-tord district as for some time the poo- \ was seen in the districts on the prairies. Another factor that good schools brought was that they could be made the centre of life for the community and so make country life more attractive to the farmer.

It was the truth to say that at tho present time the world was facing starvation and in an eloquent ap- peal, Mr. Buchanan asked all not only to save food but to those who vrerm producers to produce more. In the past the producers had nobly done their duty but they were still urged to keep and do more. The singing of "God Save Our Spten* did Men," and the national anthen* brought the gathering to a clos�.
