HIPPO VAUGHN SIGNS AND CUB OFFICIALS BREATHE WITH RELIEF Big Jim Vaughn, superlative southpaw of the Cubs, spent one hour with President Veeck of the Cubs yesterday, after which he signed his contract to play with the north siders next season. The stalwart hurler came down from Kenosha, where he has been toiling in the shops of an automobile factory, and it required little time for him to reach an agreement with the Cub3' boss. Vaughn was one of two veterans who signed with the Cubs during the day. Dode Paskert ' .arrived from his ! normal American man and boy; , Here NXoodLs BxidL Waters L SOME DEER FACTS. AST week District Game Warden Charlie McPherron, , at Monmouth, 111., arrested ."a" boob 'of killing proclivities for running down and wounding a 2 year -old -buck deer. The prisoner was taken to Aledo-and given a stiff fine. The deer, was one of three that have been running this winter in Rock Island and Mercer counties and one of probably a hundred or more wild deer still remaining In Illinois. The other day we received a letter from -a reader of our feeble efforts. It i a short, terse letter, in which the writer unburdens himself and speaks what is probably in the heart of every home In Cleveland in the morning, and had affixed his name to a contract before lunch time. He has been selling cigars in a Cleveland store, and will return to the job until time to start on the spring training trip. - Signing of Vaughn Relief. The signing of Vaughn brought considerable relief to the north side magnates; as he is rated as one of the real stars of the league, and much depends upon -his work next season. A year ago Vaughn held out Until nearly time for the start of the season. Wit'i Vaughn and Alexander, the big stars of . the staff, in line for next season. President Veeck and Manager Mitchell have little to fear. " Speed " Martin, one of the clever right handed hurlers, signed his contract when seen a few weeks ago by Veeck in San Francisco. rrelim Work at Hot Springs. V ' Vaughn will return to Kenosha today or tomorrow, and after a few days of preparation will leave . for Hot Springs, Ark., for some preliminary work. Accompanied by Alexander, rryler, aod-Killefer,. he is booked to go to the Arkansas resort a week from tonight.: - ' - it is? "After reading "your article on elk and deer I happened to pick up a paper' from my mother's home town, clippings from which I am sending you. -Gee, but I wish I were about 75 years old, so I could say I at least had seen some of these critters, except in Lincoln park." - , The clippings were on the early history of Illinois and our reader had tin-1 derlined parts that spoke of the early j settlers building fences to keep the deer i out of their "fields and of shooting deer j and turkyes on the way to church.' 1 There is a connection between our first item and this letter, Our reader has to go to Lincoln park to see a deer because we have boobs who instantly grab a gun whenever they see some wild meat on the hoof. If this spirit would be permitted to run unchecked our children's children' would have to go to Lincoln park to see a robin or a cotton tail rabbit. .. LIKE P. A.
