Sunday Morning, July 12, 1914. T H E D E C A T U R R E V I E W Page Fhra Myers Pitches; Decatur Wins Danville Beaten in Final Ga me of Series, 4 to 0--Ex- Quincy Hurler Allows Only Four Hits. John Henry Mvers and his famous "slobber" ball were working in great ehupe Saturday afternoon and Decatur defeated Danville at the league park, 4 to 0. Myers is one of the hurlers who ibagged the Three-I pennant for Quincy last year, and his labors Saturday stamped him as one of the best slab- Itfsts in the league. They couldn't find him. STRONG OPPOSITION. Norman Selby fluns: a fine pame for Danville and, against ordinary pitch- ins, he nould have wun. In the e i g h t h i n n i n g however a wild throw and several hard hits started the f:ee.llinf?s h i k i n g around the pillows and three r u n s were scored. Danville was outclassed hi all departments. PRETTY FIELDING. 'Twas hot, f e a r f u l l y hot, but the fans forgot the sizzling condition of the atmosphere in the excitement of the conflict. Several sclntilating fielding plays in which O'Brien, Berkel. Brown and Manda of Decatur and Falk of Danville figured kept the interest on edge. FOUR SCATTERED BLOWS. Billy Neal's o u t f i t collected o n l j fo-ir hits during the afternoon and each was in a d i f f e r e n t inning. In the second. Krloff spanked a hard one to right b u t he died on third base. In t h e f o u r t h , Devoy slapped a hot one to center field, but he didn't get any farther t h a n first , base. In the f i f t h Erloff a g a i n c r a c k - i «d out a single but perished on snek Xo. 1. In the seventh Staley connect- I ed but expired on second. AT QTTIN'CY TODAY.

EXPERIENCE COUNTS. Miller's experience and cooler head \vork and his a c r u r a t e p l a c i n g of the balls proved too much for Busher. Although not in the best p h y s i c a l condition, B u s h e r played a game t h a t would be a c r e d i t to a verteran in the sport. He played deliberately and carefully, giving Miller the best race that he had In any match In the tournament. M A N Y DEUCES. Seven out of the n i n e games In the f i r s t set were played to a, duce before t h e y wpre decided. Both men split even up to the seventli game, when Miller won t h r e e straight, w i n n i n g the set, -3. The second set wag even more hotly contested than the first, the games being evenly divided between the two players up fo the n i n t h . Ml lie t h e n p t r i i c k his s t r i d e and beat Bushe f w o tight games, w i n n i n g the set, 6-4 FINAL SET. Both men were n e a r l y worn out the end of the second set, and took short rest before continuing: the third The last set s t a r t e d out slower than th p r e v i o u s ones. Busher showed the re suits of the effort he had made In th first two sets ami did not cover th courts P-S fast as before. XFiller wo f o u r out of the first f i v e games wit camparative ease. Busher then tight oned "P and won one. Miller followe by w i n n i n g a n o t h e r m a k i n g the ecor in games 5-2. Busher then put up ; hard f i g h t to m a k e up the ground h had lost, w i n n i n g a decued pram* f r o m Miller, then losing the f i n a l g"anie af ter it had been twice decued. LITTLE EXPERIENCE. Both players p u t up a careful game , p a r h was awn re that Jt would bi a, f i g h t to the finish. Busher did no p l a y his usual s m a s h i n g style but usec good head work in placing the bal carefully. Miller did not aeemingls exert himself at any stage of the game but played a w a r y game throughout th whole match. By his excellent showing 1 n this year's t o u r n a m e n t , Busher "bids fair to be one of the h i g h contenders for next year's cup in the state meet This 1« Bnshfr's first year in either nter-collegiate or club tennis. The Decatur Country .club will be welt represented at the Central Illinois Country Club Association golf and ten- nis tournament, which will be held at the Champaign Country club grounds, beginning Tuesday of next week.

This will be about the strongest delegation of tennis players that has ever represented Decatur In this tournament. Both Miller and Busher are counted upon to be high men In the singles and Miller and Wiley, Halnea and Busher or Rlsley and Morrow will be hard combinations to beat in doubles. GOLF ENTRIES.

Chief Allen gave orders to all o f f i - cers Saturday night to keep the crowds on the streets moving. He had three officers stationed on Water street and two on Merchant street, and they told everybody to keep moving. The crowds on Saturday nights have become so large that frequently the walks are blocked, and there have also been many complaints that men stand along the edge of the walk and on the street corners and In front of the shows and make remarks obnoxious tu women who pass. TO ENFORCE LAW. Saturday Chief Allen called the attention of the officers to Section 68, page 47S, of the City Code, and Instructed them to see that that section is enforced. It Is as follows: "Congregating in Stairways and *n Corners--It shall be unlawful for «,ny person or persons to loiter or congregate about or upon any stairway, door. way, window, or in front of may business or dwelling bouse, theater, lecture room, church, street or street corner, or elsewhere, and by so doing obstruct or Interfere with the free passage of persons entering or occupying nch building or premises, or by their language, conversation or conduct annoy, insult or disturb persons passing alone the streets or alleys or occupying, residing or doing business In any of mid houses or places; and any person violating any of the provisions of thU section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and shall, on conviction, bs fined not less than f3 or more than 5100 for each offense, and It shall be the duty of every policeman to arrest and prosecute all persons offending under this section." LOAFING TO BE STOPPED. Chief Allen says that this section shall be enforced, and that the loafing in f r o n t of the moving picture show* and elsewhere in the p u b l i c streets must be stopped. He will have the thanks of all fair-minded people In Decatur if he will accomplish this result. He Became Indignant and Chased Wife.
