Bob Limbert, naturalist, bird imitator and world champion revolver shot is coniing to prove to the members and their friends that the Interesting phases of nature are many and varied. Besides that, he is going to stage a shooting exhibition which has *een called "the most, astounding exhibition of fancy shooting and uncanny quickness ever witnessed and something far different from what was expected." Little things like hitting pennies tossed In the air, disarming imaginary opponents before they can pull the trigger, even shooting through the neck of a tossed bottle, knocking the bottom out without breaking the sides, are said to be commonplace to Bob. In fact, he challenges the world to duplicate his stunts using either revolver, rifle or shotgun. He has often been accused of using trick cartridges containing shot or - Detroit— , AB. R. H. O. A.

RUFFING UNLUCKY AS BOSTON HURLER By JOHN B. FOSTER. (Copyright, 1630, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, May 2—When .baseball nominations are opened for the thirty-third hard luck degree, Charles Ruffing, twlrler of parts and almost a landmark "with the Boston Red Sox, will be at the head of the grub line, mess-kit in hand, waiting for the gravy. .And most likely he. will get it, and'the nomination, by acclaim. Ruffing's fortunes in the baseball season to date have all been of the same kind—misfortunes. He has already, lost two games to Washington and one to the Athletics.— One afternoon the late Miller Huggins was discussing the whos and •whats of the game of professional baseball In the higher, stratum. He peered into the horizon, with a look of deep consideration on his face, and said, somewhat dreamily, "I'd like to get that Ruffing from Boston. They won't make me a good trade." The first heard of Ruffing in the American league'waa in 1924, -\yhen he pitched a portion of one, or more games for the team. He made no record, successful or otherwise. The next season he did. in 1925 he won nine games and lost eighteen and the managers of the American league, who were not hired by Boston, looked favorably upon him because of his build, his good health and his general appearance. In 1926 he won six games and lost fifteen. The managers, who were not of Boston, were somewhat disappointed. In 1927 he won five games and lost thirteen and that seemed to be the cue to drop him back to minor league company, for more work, but Boston couldn't see it that way, declaring the young man had the best of pitching traits about him, but was handicapped because the team never batted well for him. In 1928, he won ten games and lost 25. "That pitcher is a mystery to me," said an American league manager. ' "I'd bet on that bird to be good, but I wouldn't bet that he can be good with Boston." In 1929, he won nine games and'lost 22, and at one time had won only three and lost eighteen. His record to date, while a member of the Boston team is 39 victories and 94 defeats. Boston really should'give the young man a show and trada 7 him before he has lost a century of games in that city. T he sacred codfish has turned its flippers against him. There is no joy in heaving the ball, again and again, only to wonder whether "here goes another." UMPIRES PLACED FOR BLAIR START Everything is in readiness for the official opening tomorrow of the twelfth season of tHe Blair County Baseball league, the .initial pairings being announced as follows: Penn Central at Martinsburg (Ting- line). Roaring Spring at Duncansville (Brown). Claysburg at Willlamsburg (Glasson). Official starting lineups of the eight entries will not be announced until ji(st prior to the game time as the various managers desire to give all candidates a chance. Penn Central looks for a real hard game at Martinsburg as both teams are making a strong bid for the Blair pennant. Claysburg la at Williamsburg the Bricktown team taking the field with but two newcomers Eafle Howard and Luther Treaster, the other-performers being residents and veterans from last season. Wllllamsburg has just a pair of newcomers. Maurice Thompson and Lew Allender will comprise the Papertown battery.

Cissell has hit safely In every one of the 10 games played this season by the White Sox, and has made 19 hits in 44 times at bat and scored 8 runs. Shifted from shortstop to second base by Bush this season, Ciasell seems to have found himself and promises to live up to the reputation he showed when the White Sox bought him from the Portland Pacific Coast league club in 1928 for $123,000 with J75,000 in cash and players valued at $48,000. "I don't expect to continue hitting anything like .400," said ClHsell, "but I'll finish the season hitting well over .300. -. . Six years ago Ciasell was In the United States cavalry stationed at Fort Des Moines, when the Des Moines Western league club bought his release for $80. He batted .345 for Des Moines and was sold to Portland for $13,000, a reported-record minor league price at that time. After batting .323 with Portland in 1927, he was purchased by the White Sox, but was a comparative failure the last two seasons, batting .260 in 1928 and .280 in 1929. Cissell said none of the pitchers had the "Indian sign" on him but "they're all plenty tough to hit." During the baseball season Cissell does not read* the sporting pages of the newspapers, except to look at the won and lost column in the American league standings. "It's the White Sox that count with me and every hit I get I try to make it help to win." he said. SHORT SPORTS. (By United Press.)

Blair League Ready The Blair County Baseball league has one of its big days tomorrow as the six ball entries launch the twelfth season of Saturday baseball, of, by and for Blafr'countlans. The 1930 season bids fair to_ be the best ever for the Blair circuit and that's saying something, for past Blair seasons have been slzzlers and real popular with the baseball fans.

First Win, 1st Shutout Martinsburg High's first baseball win In the Blair High league turned out to be the leagues first shutout win of this season, as well. The whitewash came this week on the Morrison Cove field, Martinsburg defeating the Cove High team. Prior to the game both teams Ipat four games and It was a battle for victory No. 1. Martinsburg dropped to Altoona, Williamsburg, Claysburg and Roaring Spring but even in defeat the team scored 24 runs, an average of 6 a game. The team held Altoona to a 14- run total losing by an 11-run margin. There will be some more shutouts In the Blair league before the season ends. Three games this season saw losing teams held to a lone tally an* all were flirting with whitewashes. Last year Altoona High alone turned in three whitewashes. The Blair High league is more than half over right now, 16 games being staged with just fourteen more coming. And for the first time in years not a single solitary .postponed game Is on the calendar.
