(Continued from yesterday's edition of The Courier, i Another thlm; which: a boy will learn quickly In baseball is fair play. He will soon fln«l out that it is no good to claim that h«- tugged a runner out when he know, that he didn't even if ho get« by -.vltlt it. He will find t h u t the oiily '. atlufaction from winning a game (omes from winning (airly, and he i houhi ho made to see that tho siinif) thins holds good off the playing fie] !, that nothing In life is worth while w i n n i n g unices it is won on the square. Loyalty Is another lesson which a boy learns from baseball. He learns to be loyal to liis team and to his fellow players. Ho learns to slick behind his pitcher ami hie captain no matter how tho KUUIC !H going. A boy who has lenraid this in lite boyhood will be loyal to his family, to his associates and to hiH country when he roaches manhood. To ho u good baseball player a boy must also lear i teamwork. He nuiet learn to piny for tho (success of hin team and not tor hia Individual glorification. Hti must loam to sacrifice when a sacrifice is the play, instead of trying to hit a home run. He must learn to back up his teammates In case they should make errors. Teamwork is inereh another name for cooperation and ability to codporate is necessary to ''very good citizen. It ie necessary f - i r success In personal, business and public life. A nation of IndlvidiiaUts v ould paes swiftly into anarchy. ' (More in tomorrow's Courier.)
