Or looney, as they say In ilayfair. i Trusting as we are, we probably '. would have gone to our grave believing portsiders weie not responsible had not Kobert Moses Grove and his mighty feats set us a-thinkin'. Thinkin. how, If southpaws are as cuckoo as they are said to be, they still manage to perform such elegant deeds, i It takes plenty of the old savvy ! to win ball games. A pitcher may I get by for awhile on nothing but ' speed and curves but he Isn't going ;to last for long without something ' up there in the upper story". Grove, : by the way, is perfect proof of this. iWhen he first came up. Grove used i more speed in a day than he does all week now. Yet. despite his ! blinding ball, he was just an ordinary pitcher. It wasn't until he got some brains that he became a star. j And who Is rash enough to eay i that Grove is crazy, eccentric? : Y'ou can't name a Eoy Scout who conducts himself mote properly than does the A's mighty portsider. True, he's silent and glum, but so are Einstein and Coolidge. And you don't, hear folks calling Albert and Cal looney. V.'e see by the papers that Babe Ruth never keeps count of his home runs; never knows whether he's behind or leading Lou Gehrig. Uh-huh, and Mr. Hoover couldn't tell you to save his life how many states there are In the union. CANTWELL WINS OVER BRAME,2-1 IN MOUND DUEL Brave Hurler Gets Strong Support Despite Errors To Beat Bucs BERGER HOMERS (By Associated Press) BOSTON, Aug. 22 The Braves grained an edge In the series with the Pirates by taking the third game, 2 to 1, Friday.

Despite three errors by his teammates, Cantwell was given sensational support. Maranville contributed several fielding features. The Pirates' lone run was unearned, coming after an error by Freddie Maguire. P1TTSBIT.G1I , BOSTOM AB R 11 C ' AB R H C Small Boy Gains $10 Fortune as Babe Regains Ball Hit For 600th By Associated Press) ST. LOUIS, Aug. 22 Babe Ruth and little Tony Galileo engaged In a business transaction at Sportsman's park Friday, much to the satisfaction of each. The Babe hit the 600th home run of his major league career and was anxious to get the ball, which hit a motor car outside the park. "I'd give a $10 bill and a new ball to get that old one back," the Sultan of Swat announced. Tony arrived before long with the old ball, collected the $10 and the new baseball from the Babe, and then paid a brief visit to the press box. Tony was described as "a small lad," because the fellows In the press box forgot to ask him his age. He said he was "plenty happy," and Babe's broader-than-usual smile didn't Indicate disappointment. Kylo the Brown mare from the Walter McCord stable at Oak-landon, Indiana Friday paced the fastest mile of the Grand Circuit meeting at Exposition park to win the 2:16 pace. The heat, the final of the race was gone In 2:02. Reece Howe of the R. II. Keeler stable of Auburn, N. Y., was the pacemaker.

Picnic CLINTON, Aug. 21 In a baseball game at the Dewitt county farm bureau picnic here Thursday a team from the North Side of the county defeated a team chosen from the South Side, 13 to 11. Score: North Side South Side RHE .202 012 S12 13 10 8 210 130 12111 12 9 Harris, Thomas and Bell; Phares Miller and Maxwell. How Is it. If southpaws are such an irresponsible, scatter-brained, wild and wooly breed, that you can't help placing half a dozen or so of them In your list of Immortal pitchers? Try and make up an all-time list and omit such lefthanders as Eddie Plank, Rube Waddell, Rube Marquard and Her-bie Pennock. It can't be done, that's all. No one will deny there hae been several hlghly-"ccentrlc lefthanders. Esprclally Waddell, who was always about thre jumps ahead of the constabulary. And Ray Francis Marion, who couldn't pitch unless two or three white mice were running around Inside his shirt. But there have been, and still are. some pretty queer righthanders. And shortstops and outfielders and utility men. Didn't a certain shortstop once pluck a goldfish from a bowl in a hotel lobby and swallow it alive before the horrified clerk could turn his back? And didn't a certain outfielder (we'd use his name were it not for fear that Brooklyn's right-fielder would get me.d) try, for three years, to master the art of catching fly balls with his head? n&r.atur Fruit & Produce Co. in Main Street Phones 5253 and 6254 111 East MYtrDtLII1 $l ORDERS OR MORE . niTle Welle, Kxtrn Fine.
