. Tht Rourkes went through another
food three-hour workout yesterday
noon when the sun was high in the
heaven and the atmosphere fairly
Marty Krug started his charges at
11 o'clock in the. morning and he re
fused to let them' rest until 2 o'clock
in the afternoon. After the fielding
and batting practices, Marty devoted
fully thirty minutes to, his pitchers,

Men and O'Toole, both veterans of
many a campaign and both of whom
worked under Marty last year,
showed their old skill But it was the
way Murphy Currie and Wayne Bar-
ham worked that pleased the onlook
ers. Both of these youngsters proved
nifty lads at scooping up bunts and
delivering them to first. Many hurl
ers lack proficiency in fielding their
positions, ' but from the looks of
things the Rourkes will not be so
handicapped this yean With a little
practice Currie and Barham will be
as good fielding pitchers is . the league
boasts. .. '
Shag Thompson is the only mem
ber ot the. troupe who isn t in great
shape in every way. Shag has a
bruise on his foot which causes him
to limp a little, but outside of that
there is absolutely no work for the
hospital corps. ,
The pitchers have been working
long enough so that they are begin
ning to cut loose quite a bit now and
when they face the Brandeis Sunday
in the first' game of the year here it
is believed they will be able to burn
them down the groove in mid-spring
if not mid-summer style. ...

Is Declared Valid
Albion, Neb., March 29. Special.)
District Judge F. M. Button has
handed down a decision in the Cavey
against Reigle county commissioners'
The finding of the court is that the
effect of the election statute passed in
1905 was to lengthen the term of com
missioner's office from three to four
vears: that the office was a statutory
one and so governed: that the elec
tions held in Boone county since 1906
on the theory that the term was three
years could have no effect in changing
the terms. Cavey was elected in 1909
at what was supposed to be the ex
piration of the former term, but in
stead he was merely elected for the
unexpired one year of that four-year
term, and as his predecessor vacated
the office, Cavey became a dejurc
officer and remaining therein and ex
ercising the functions of. his office,
Cavey has since remained de jure of
ficer. He submitted himself to an
election in 1912, which was not a
legal election and had no effect upon
the term of commissioner in his dis
trict, since which time no election has
been held at the right time. Cavey re
mains as a dejure officer until the
regular expiration of the term of the
office of commissioner for the dis
trict, January, 1919.
The injunction against Reigle is
made continuous until January, 1919,
and the injunction against Cavey, the
county clerk and treasurer, relative to
drawing or paying warrants for sal
ary of Cavey was dissolved and dis
missed. ' Lou do. Tbrww. OUluk

"And is it not worth while to do

nothing but war will satisfy the na
