Before he BO' hurt, Rube Dressier lied been go-i ing-like a house afire. You know' the Rube was put out when h: tried to put one of his finger; through the ball—and It was not a.rubber ball. The weakness In left field nnd at; second bas?, however, have been remedied speedily. President York lost no time after the season closed: In obtaining Lefty O'Doul for left field nnd Fresco Thompson for second base, which insures good. protection for my club this year.
