Between those dates the Cubs will meet the four eastern teams on the west side in Chicago, and .Manager Uresnahan has indicated by his talk of the last week that the present aggregation of players on his payroll wilt have to produce results in that time, or dras- tic measures will be adopted. Just what action will be taken Ro- ger does not say, but one might guess from his talk that about a dozen men will be released, regardless of their ironclad contracts, to make room for dozen youngsters, and the process building up a new team will he started this year. The Cubs are not far enough away from first place to prevent their win- ning the pennant, but there will have to be remarkable improvement in their work to keep them even in the first division. II all chances and hopes for a pennant have been crush- ed bv August 11, one may expect to see the west side officials begin the tearing down and rebuilding process, and in this way have the chance to try out new material in real games, instead ot waiting for the spring training trip ot 1010. Cuhs Not Trying, Says Roger Bresnnhan has lost faith in a lot of his players since the present trip began The most discouraging thing to him has been the apparent lack of eamenesE ?nd fighting spirit in his men He made the statement the other day that he had only three or lour men on the team who were really fThe'others, according to Roger, are interested only in the 1st and the 15th of the month, when they get their pay cheques, or, perhaps, slightly inter- ested in whether the White Sox will be beaten out of the American lea- gue pennant thjis permitting a flity scries in Chicago which will bring some nice bonus money at the close of the season.

"Sing Me to Sleep" A poetic corporal of the 17th Coun- ty of London, "somewhere in (bus delivers his soul: Sing me to sleep where bullets fall! Let me forget the world and all. Damp is my dug-out, cold are my feet; Nothing but bully and biscuits to eat Sing me to sleep in some old shed. A dozen rat-holes around my head; Stretched out upon my waterproof, Dodging the raindrops from the roof! Far, far from Ypres I to be, Where German snipers can't pot: at me! Think of me crouching where the worms creep, AValting for sergeant to sing me to sleep! Paul Decamp, the French rugby in- ternational player and member of the Racine Club de France, is reported as having been killed in action at Ar- ras.
