Schmidt Runs Scoreless Stint To 20 Innings By KD CORRIGAN AP Sports Writer Max Lanier, who tailed long and faithfully /or the St. Louis Cardinals, looked over his old mflies last week nnd predicted that with some pitching Eddie Stanley's men would be tough to beat.

He pushed Sehoendienst over to shortstop anrt played second base himself. the regular second baseman, made an error, but otherwise looked good at shortstop. The one sobering note of an otherwise good day for the Cards came when Bob Slaybaugh, a 20- year-old pitcher assigned to Omaha was hit in the face by a line drive In hatting practice. Doctors snid he might lose his left eye. Hal Newhouser, who had hoped to be of some use to the Detroil Tigers, started against the Cincinnati Reris and was shelled for four runs in Ihe fifth inning.

There's no reference to medical service, yet the health of your community, of your family and of yourself is protected by the vigilance of the men who check and treat and recheck water to make sure it's safe lor you. There's no fee for securing reduced fire insurance rales, yet the whole schedule of these rates is substantially reduced if an adequate public water supply — so necessary to an effective defense against fire — is available. There's no contribution levied for community development, yet key industries can produce goods and provide employment only because a dependable water supply is available. \Vilhotit a continuing flow of water, sewers could not be properly flushed or streets kept clean. You could conceivably obtain enough water through your own efforts to satisfy your thirst, clean your body, and water your garden.
