' ' The Pnstlmers, shooting for a second place tie with R. D. Hughes company al this stage of the first half race, were easy favorites to 'trim the power team but they reckoned not with Logon. The long and lanky one had pitched a few innings last week after- a game had Ijeeii tost in the early Innings by other ArX-Mo pitchers but most or the fans figured Pastime to hit his assortment of slow balls without mercy. Logan not only baffled the billiard shooters but made them look, bad in doing so. "Call Me Babe" got good support however, particularly from Kettlnger third baseman, who played a): over the diamond, turning In e 'sparkling game afield. : Logan had started out as an outer gardener early in the campaign with .visions of performing like the well known "Babe" Rutl pt the plate. His play appeared nearer the standard set by another "Babe" (Herman) in the field however than the Bambino at bat Then Logan 'found himself when shifted to the pitcher's box, where Mr. Ruth himself was once quite gome shakes.

In the second game It was th best looking Teaclrer .outfit of th season that took to Scruggs' fas ball for 11 blows.

The Teachers scored twlc In the secoi.'j on only two hit. . errors contributing largely .t Scruggs' downfall. Liberty counte one In the third when the Teachei made two more.

The answer can be seen In the overages of some comparatively weak hitsmlths. Take Ethan Allen, Phillies' outfielder,- for -instance. Ethan hit for 2-11 with the Cards last season, while this year he la In the neighborhood of .355. Then there's the cases of Sam Leslie, Brooklyn first sackcr; Hal Lee.
