Ol' Cage Gloomy The Yanks lost the second game 3-2 after winning tM opener 6-1. The second game loss was the bitterest blow of the year suffered by Yankee Manager Casey Stengel. He was a picture of gloom. "You can't win a pennant by splitting four games with your two toughest rivals, ' he growled, referring to the last two series against Chicago and Cleveland, "I figured on a spill in New York although I was hoping for two. Had we won both, we'd be in real good shape instead of just good. If we get by Washington, we ought to be in excellent position although it won't be a cinch. I still think it will be real tough all the way.' Neither Lopez nor any of his payers can understand why the Senators have proved such a jinx team to the Indians all year.

Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents value on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer geting all the water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoile^ mountains, dip your cup in a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down to the nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense of your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Comput the value—of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And compare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and maintaining a Bermuda-type roof collection system. Water is free to all. But it isn't alway available where people want it in a condition safe for them to use. 'it's the water works' job to take over the task of collecting water, transporting water and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
