But the real story of Kogan's victory, the three-time winner admitted, lay in the complete collapse of the fine game pacesetter Ray Gafford had tossed at the select field.

After their first 33 games they were 18 and a half lengths back of the leader. Such a situation in a horse race would evolve the mystery of whether they were last in. one race or first in the next. As Pirates, they undoubtedly deserve the ancient title of "freebooters." But never let it be said they are the worst in baseball. They, are the seventh worst among the teams which. compose organized baseball and — hold tight to your chairs — would be comfortably in first place in a circuit composed of Grand Forks, N.D.; Mayfield, Ky.; Mattoon, EL; Ardmore. Okla.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Williamsport, Pa. By comparable figures, Pittsburgh's .152 percentage would ha\-e it out in front of Fort Lauderdale, followed by Ardmore and with Grand Forks, Ma toon and Mayfield in a dead heaL Williamsport's .111 percentage would bring up the rear. Fort Lauderdale, for instance, is in the same shape as the Pirates, being 18 1-2 games back of the leading Miami Beach team in the Florida International League. Things got so tough that Fort Lauderdale shortstop Woodrow Meeks skipped the club. Pittsburgh, going into weekend play, had won only five games while losing 28. But all is not lost. The freebooters aren't the best booters in baseball. Grand Forks, Mayfield and Mai- toon each had posted only one victory at that comparable date. tor to any sportsmen in keeping The Tricycle Hospital Knows How io Repair Your Child's Toy 2415 W.
