Butler County conference; br, boys' and girls' doubleheader.

The list of games and meets, scheduled for Tuesday night unless otherwise indicated: PICK UP 6 PT year — but official averages showed they turned in two of the half-dozen record-equalling or shattering performances for the season. Herman tied a league mark he himself set three years ago, oy putting out 11 men in a game \vilh the Boston Bees Aug. 1. Hartnett, current "iron man" among the catchers, was behind the plate for the Cubs in 114 games, thus stretching bis record of catching more than 100 games a season to 11 years. The last seven of these 11 campaigns have been consecutive, from 19CO through the season ended in September. With Herman and Hartnett as the only holdovers, the all-league fielding tcarr. for the season, including those who saw action in 100 games or more, lined up this way: First base—Gua Suhr, Pittsburgh . .UW4 Second base—Jltnnnii ...

NEW YORK, (IP}— It's going to take a lot more than the National league offered this season to move Second Baseman Billy Herman and Catchc. Gabby Harlnett of the Chicago Cubs out of the fielding championships for their respective positions. Not only did the two Cubs retain their league fielding titles— Hartnett for the third straight ONE POINT GETS WIN FOR SQUAD (Continued From Sport Pare) that his shot had clipped the beams overhead. Then, with TWO and cue-half minutes left, the five Waterloo lads, who played the entire ball game, spurted ahead to win. Qulnn Puts Team A^ead. Pick Quinn dropped in a Tree throw after Madden had crashfid into him, Damge popped in another when he tangled with Peterson, and then got a short one to drop from under the goal. The academy went ahead as Quinn spiked one dead into the ring on a one-hand shot, and Hie score was 28 to 27. The Waterloo cagers stalled briefly, but Girsch found an open lane for a pass to Quinn, and the visiting forward slapped in -a setup with 10 rounds to go. There was scarcely move than rang make the score 30 to 29. HOLY FAMILY IN COURTS VICTORY (Continued From Sport Pajc) Vince Muvphy were caging free chances to run the count to 33 points. Mulvehill rang the bell with a shot two-thirds the length of the floor, and Bob Damge slapped one squarely into the strings to push the final score to 33 to 21.

Mac -Loehr of Dowling, a 16- year-old junior honor student, was awarded the center position. Coach O'Boyle used him as an offensive guard and defensive center. He was a good punter and a valuable mari breaking up passes. Robert Matthews of Columbia, a triple threat star, was the outstanding quarterback. He was noted particularly for his accurate passing. Heavy Backs Star. Alex Yokubaitis of Trinity, 175- pounder, and Bob Willding of Dowling, were selected as the two best halfbacks in the state's Catholic schools. Coach O'Boyle called his ace "the best all-around back I have seen this year." Charles Bisignano of Dowling was a great line plunger who was the class of the fullbacks. He weighed 175 pounds and was the crashing type of player always good for a few valuable yards. 3. Pioneer Journalism. The. early printers in Iowa were oracles. When the ancient Greeks did not know what to do, they carried gifts to a favorite god and asked advice. If the god was pleased, his priests would answer questions about future events. By means of these prophecies a general could decide when and where to attack the enemy or a law maker could change the rules to promote the general welfare. In Iowa the pioneer newspaper editors surveyed the scene around them, glanced at coming events, and explained what ought to be done. Politics interested the editors more than anything else. Their main purpose in publishing a newspaper was to support the policies of a political party. They always took sides on every issue. Whigs were expected to subscribe to the newspaper that expressed the opinions of their party, and the democratic editors hoped all good democrats would come to the aid of their paper. During political campaigns the editors waged fierce warfare against the candidates of the opposing party. They dipped their sharp pens in acid ink and wrote bitter words that stung like wasps. No name was too bad for a political opponent, though he might also be a neighbor. Readers of a "Loco-foco" paper were taught that the democrats could do no good. Crowing roosters at the head of editorial columns boasted of election victories. Sometimes rival editors let their political quarrels become personal. Then they never ceased to accuse each other of dishonesty, ignorance and all kinds of blunders. What began as a political debate ended in a mud throwing contest in which both editors were thoroughly, covered with mire and many a bystanding friend was daubed. Questions of public inter- ets were forgotten when the discussion turned to private slander These unpleasant arguments continued long after the political campaign was over. Whatever one said or did. the other would criticize him. Readers took the quarrel seriously, and so the community was divided. Men lost their sense of humor and began to fight A lawyer in Burlington shot an editor in the street Two newspapers were published in Iowa City when it was the capital of Iowa territory. One was the •Iowa City Standard" in which William Crum, a young whig, aimed his hair-trigger pen at all the democrats in sight and praised the politics of Henry Clay and William Henry Harrison.

He spoke of the "Standard" as the "Whiggery Humbug," and Crum referred to the democratic "Capitol Reporter" as the "Loco-foco Rag." Whole columns in the "Rag" and the "Humbug" were filled with the uncomplimentary comments of the editors about each other. Crum began the controversy by saying that Van Antwerp's "longwinded speeches" were as frothy as beer "and as empty as his heal." The General retorted that he would defend his character, but "laugh to scorn" the wretched slang of such a demagog. When Crum called him a jackal and a liar, Van Antwerp refused to spoil his paper by replying. "We would be ..the last to reproach the memory of the mother who bore him in ah unlucky hour, with the frailties of her worthless son." As the duel of words grew hotter, the epithets flew thick and fast. "Contemptible slang-whang- er of the Standard, biped of the neuter gender, Silly Billy, the last crum of creation," roared the General. "Hybrid politician who furnishes the wind for the Reporter, that West Point boiled shirt, Lord Pomposity," -jaunted Crum. If the democrats had their way, wrote the editor of the "Standard," the Union would soon be destroyed. To this the "Reporter" replied: "Bow wow wow Whose dog are thou? I'm Henry Clay's dog Bow wow wow." In their excitement, both men forgot the rules of grammar. "We were not aware," said Van Antwerp, "until the last Standard appeared, that it looked suspicious for any one to visit the capitol as often as they seen fit." And Crum burst out in answer to an item in the "Reporter,"' "The black hearted villain who composed it knew that it was a lie when he done so." When the pioneer editors were not casting verbal stones at each other, they were praising nature, I Hats & Crockery" was received boasting about community progress, or urging people to be honorable and temperate. They seemed to be interested in everything. New stores, shops, or mines were heartily approved. The arrival of a new steamboat was hailed with enthusiasm. Immoral conduct was treated with scorn. The editors felt responsible for improving conditions. They took their cultural leadership nearly as seriously as their politics. The job of being a pioneer editor was hard. He was always in trouble of some kind. Winter bliz- bards whistled through the chinks of log cabins, filling type cases with snow and freezing the printer's fingers. Summer droughts, spring floods, and loss of credit delayed shipments of paper from St. Louis.' In such emergencies the day of publication was postponed. Sometimes a week was skipped. The glowing prospects that had seemed so rosy at first gradually faded. The weeks when no paper appeared became more frequent. Hope flickered and went out. But the editor only gathered up his meager equipment, moved to another town and began all over again. Many of the subscribers s_eem to have been frozen assets. Editors were always begging their readers to pay. They even threatened to print the names of subscribers who were behind. Any one who borrowed his -neighbor's •-paper was pointed out as a bad citizen. If a man did not have cash, the editor would take payment in almost any form—-wood, grain, lumber, chickens, butter, eggs or old clothes. Democrats were as poor pay as whigs. "It is the height oi folly." declared one pioneer printer, "to tell an editor to keep cool when he has to burn exchange papers to keep warm." As settlement increased, the newspapers were able to print more advertisements. General stores attracted customers by listing their goods in the paper. A shipments of "Jeans & Linseys. Merinoes. & Bombazines, Fancy and Mourning Calicoes, Boots & Brogans, Salaratus. Tobacco,-Loaf and Brown Sugar, Fashionable for the spring trade. Patent medicine advertisements, telling oJ cures for every human ailment, kept the wolf from more than one publisher's door. Books and magazines were recommended. One man wanted to sell a "Raft oJ Hewed Oak Timber." When snow, drifting high in the roads, kept the stagecoach from bringing in the weekly exchanges the editor apologized for the lack of national news. At such times he filled the extra space with some "literary" piece such as "The Truant Beau, Caught and Caged." Occasionally an essay or poem from a member of the local lyceum filled a big gap and pleased the author. Gradually, however, the emphasis shifted from borrowed stories to current happenings of the coun tryside. By the time the railroads were able to deliver the eastern papers more promptly and regularly, most of the important news of the nation was coming by wire The telegraph caused tremendous changes in newspaper publishing. As the years passed, the press grew in power. Editors were appointed postmasters for their political efforts. Money was actuallj paid for subscriptions and the number of hams offered in place of cash decreased. Steam presses replaced the old hand presses. The traveling printer with his "shirttail full of type" became more settled in his ways and more permanent in his residence. Several Iowa newspapers came of age before the Civil war. For them the period of pioneer journalism had ended. Activity Hints. 1. Write an editorial about some school problem in the style of a pioneer editor. 2. Have a debate about the influence of newspapers in politics. 3. Make a list of the things that are advertised now in a weekly Iowa newspaper. How many were for sale a hundred years ago? 4. Collect newspaper name plates, like some people collect stamps, coins, letter heads and street-car transfers. Next week: "Leading Editors."

Bill Stapulis, 175 pound senior, injured early last season, went back into the fullback berth, and his replacement, big Arnold Greene, moved into the second string backfield. Stapulis, Marshall Goldberg, John Chickerneo and Harold Stebbins made up the Pitt first string backfield, although Bobby LaRue, the right half, is slated to get back into harness later in place of Stebbins.

Much of the play is in a rural setting, where Mitt West, a noted star, gets stranded while on a personal appearance tour. There romance develops with a farm-boy inventor. "Fugitive in the Sky," the second picture of the present Palace run, Is a murder mystery, full of action and startling developments.
