When Warnekc, hard chewing Chicago Cub, lived here, he was a "mama's boy" and for years wasn't good enough to pitch for his high school team. He helped dally with washing the dishes. Lonnle, as he is known to all lh e town folks, was born here 23 years ago. In 1926 he pitched his first game for the Mt. Ida team. Luke Warneke, Lonnie's father, one of the most successful fann- ers in thts section, dropped In lo Uncle Henry Allen's hardware store to complain to the members of the school board that "your school is ruining my boys. H has already ruined Lonnlu. I can't do "a thing with him. He doesn't do a thing but sleep, eat, and play ball." In the fall ot 1927 Lonnle left for Houston, Tex. His sister's husband, a fireman, had promised to get hi ma try-out with the Texas team. The winter was spent bearing messages for a telegraph company. When his tryout came he was sent to Laurel, La. In 1029 he was bought by the Cubs. They farmed him in 1930 to reading, Pa. In 1931 he went to the Cub training camp. Fans are familiar with his career since then. Warneke writes home onca a week, spends the winter here hunting, and likes good dogs and guns. rule that makes the ball dead when the ball carrier has been forced, to drop to one knee, even momentarily. The latter rule while it may rob the game of spectacular runs- to a certain extent is enforced to prevent piling on. which has caused trouble in the past, gridders figure to be a little farther advanced than the Chicks.
