I am sorry that press of other business made it Imposslbo to write my usual column for today. 1 had Intended writing about great playerB I httvo known; and will do so at a later date. However, I may say that the local club executive at a meeting the other nvening promulgatedysome new rules which win be of special Interest. One of these has to do with boy� on the coUVbo duirJng playing hours, and the otherilia�.lo do with the organization ot a ladlasl branch of the club so that arrangements may be Wade for special days ot .play for them so that there will not be so much Interference between the lady and gentlemen players In the future. Both these rules will prove a boon to the club I am sure, and win be accepted with pleasure. A couple of new competitions are to be announced shortly which will give the ,club members a fine lot of trophies for the season's play. The club is making great strides, and the next thing we will have to think about is the making of the course Into an eighteen hole one. DAVE HUME.

That much, I suppose, might bo taken for granted.'I won't say that it was exactly a surprise, either, but I will admit 1 hadn't counted on it. If a fellow Is a real, live, hustling ball player. It Is his ambition to beat out everybody in the game. He wouldn't be much of a ball player If he didn't have that ambition. But as to realizing such an ambition, of course, that is a different story. I would have been foolish at this stage of the game to have indulged in any wild drfeams about leading the league In batting, for naturally I had no right to be so confident ot my ability. But I played my beat and I'm glad I won just the same. Did I hit above my proper stride last year? I can't say. Perhaps I did, but I don't want to th'ink so. It would seem that I ought to do as well again, and why shouldn't 1 do better? However, that's a thing that It does little good to speculate about. The records will tell the story. And there's another thing. Last season was by no means a perfect one. A number ot things happened to interfere with my hitting. I was out of the game for quite a while early !n the sea.ion with a damaged toot. I can't say that this Injury hurt my batting average any, but at the same time -when a batter Is going good, as I was early last season, he doesn't like to be held up for a while and then have to begin all over again. Late in the Reason I had to quit again on account of Charley Hosa. .'Altogether 1 was out of about twenty uames. Some year 1 hope to be lucky j enough to get started right and then I breeze right through the "beason with-I out being laid up for repairs by the wayside. That's the kind of a season a bJtler likes, anyway. I,belleve I am inclined to hit them harder In the early season than later,. But I think most batters are, in mld-eeason 1 doubt -It 1 was hitting under .320 at any time. The outfield Is my natural position, all right.. When I was a kid I Insisted on playing fhe Infield, but Was under a peculiar disadvantage. I was naturally left-handed, and down where 1 lived there wasn't a rigbt-banded glove to be had unless you sent to Reach or Spauldlng tor them, am! such a thing as that was entirely out ot our financial resource*. Ypu may not believe it, but I actually trained some one's shell-llko ear or bust. | myself to throw right handed juBt ao -WHY IS IT the hsindloap com- j that I could play the Infield with my mlttee are sitting back licking their OcF- AMERICAN ASSOCIATION Milwaukee 2, Columbus 1.
