1 CURTAIN FALLS ON BASEBALL IN DETROIT MONDAY Doable Header With White Sox Starting at 1 :4S Ends Pastime Until After War. OUR STAR ATHLETES MAY NEVER RETURN Mutt Play Bjgger Game Now Than That One of the Pennant Hunt. T BY HARRY BULLION. Curtains will be drawn cm the great national game of baseball for tne period of war, perhaps longer, at Navln field Monday afternoon. Somewhere, sometime the ath-iletes, who, have helped to make thousands happy by their dash and vim, or caused them civic sorrow, shortly will be engaged in a busi- nes far more Important than the winning of a pennant. Uncle Sam's war department de erees that baseball is not an essential occupation and will, if the prln-cipals themselres are unable to. , find them Jobs that are designed ly , so majce ror the successful prose cution or Europe's bloody carnival. .; : - Bxempt, temporarily, aro tho par-tloipantB in tho Impending world's :. iterleB; ror the others there is no recourse. Secretary Baker nn, Oen-;ii eral Crowder have spoken, and on V : their decision the life of baseball, .. professionally, goes out. After Mon-;.i0oay s samen, the first of which Is --scheduled to commonce at 1:46, white Sox and Tigers, nctors In the . climax production at Nnvin field, i.r.wlll have no altenmtlve but :; chance their clothing- for some of ;.- their country's or enter biI judged . essential labor. Contracts ISzplre. Contracts expire on the morrow and tho athletes will wend their separate- ways, to play again If .. pnyaidal fitness will permit them ;.; ttfter the war or sink from their ;- . lofty place in ilin spotlight to ob--Ilvlon. It's war's toll that must be Si; exacted ; one of the sacrifices that 57 all of us must make. Baseball won't die even though 'the 'government obliterates it for .-the best Interests of victory, mere-;:' ly recline In slumber until the -awakening comes. When that will be only the fates can ordain; none can forecast the end of the struggle :r.that grips civilization. Few believed that baseball would :,be injured by the war other than through the loss of patronage, due !'-to the induction of America's man-r, -hood Into the army. But the blow ::eufTcred Is greater than oven the -V most. Seotlcal would have flared to Jiiajrard a prediction: swallowed up vr.j,'t;fln . the ' rushing" current of requlro-ffilfi.:- I'Tnents tho country must meet. swvw.,i:fr. 1 One-purpose can be served by the jjasfr .conditions that exist now, and will iV obtain throughout the siriigglo to fefsvJiV.-5.peBtore pence and put the reptile 3 that Germany calis Its emperor where he can crente no morn trnu-.:-ble.' It is an accepted fact that v. DaBOD&n requires cleaning out, nni 7 war will offer opportunity. Some X-ed Sot Worry. - Not All those associated with the pastime stand accused, yet Individuals, or groups of them might lie eliminated for the Kootl of the snort. No names need to be mentioned. nor the situations that Involve t liin "died: time will remedy the de-' fer.ts. :. '.i -'It Is sufficient to remark that tie : government deemed it wisdom to check it now, and the . government's will must bo obeyed. Careers are certain to bo ruined by the edict brilliant performers now probably ..never returning, cut on in the bloom . of their greatest earning period. But so have lives been sacrificed to the cause. Thoso who are spared will have everything to be thankful for. Baseball can be revived, but lives once lost can't be recovered. . "With this feeling the fjus of De. trolt can pay their last respects i-the great national pastime and the Tigers Monday afternoon. Feu- of the athletes expect to be back, although all of Them hope In return to the post they leave on t he bp-. pointed day. I,lke the rest expected to play a part In tin- affairs of tin-future policy of government throughout tho world practically. they are destined to b.i j-sts T .fate: to go whither they arc pri!.

Though ojd in year.-' as ' athletes of the diamond s.". tho roM ; ; right arm that did much to brins ! throe pennants to Detroit and errlnelv brought down the hitters of their time still is slnewv ; and supple. Whether Donovan will last the I . Vame out. or what plans bevond the j hurling of Bill into the breach Jennings has in mind ror the "blow : off," are not known. Hut if hae ball must be ushered out it Is tit ting and proper that Donovan ha a hand in it.
