"Toots" essay- ed as a pitcher for the first time in the history of his local baseball career, and it was "some" essay. He has pitched before, but it v.-as In the dim and forgotten past of his col- lege days. The Travellers were short if material for the firing line, and Toots" was solicited to fill the break. -Did he fill it? Just like Christy Mathewson. Five hatters fac- ed him in the first innings, the maxi- mum; three in the second; the same in the third; four in the fourth; three in the fifth, and three in the seventh. Regular steam roller. "Toots" had only one bad sixth. In that session, the Northsiders went to bat with the score 3 to 1 against them, the Travellers having taken the lead in the fourth.

At the bat, however, he was not but a kind fan eased "Toots'" mind on this score by re- minding him that great pitchers nev- :r do pertain to excellence at 'the swatting station. Joe Gillis pitched the same steady kind of ball that has marked his work since the season opened. -He str.uck out. nine men.
