Wallop St. Joseph, 13 to 2,
While Wichita Licks Topeka
and Sioux Check Des
The Rourkes are leading the league.
- While the lowly, but accommodating
Sioux were letting Dei Moines back
a paee and Wichita waa walloping the
presumptious Topeka, Pa'a Pets were
lambasting the daylights of the un
salntly Saints from St. Joseph yester-
day and the three-cornered tie for
; first place5 in the percentage column
;; was broken with all the breaking
fv favoring our side. .
. What the Rourkes didn't do to the
' . Saints yesterday isn't .worth mention
?; ing. They did about all that was pos-
sible without driving the Daniels clan
f out of the league.', The score was 13
.' . to 2.
Mr. Van Gilder, the, playful youth
i from Cap Girardeau, was responsi
ble for the 1wo. That was all he
, would permit the Saints to accumu
i late during the nine rounds of pastim-
ing. The enemy sneaked these two
J aver in the second with the aid oi
i Doc Holderman.
Stops Saints In Tracks.
; From the second on, Van Gilder
was irreproachable. Only one Saint
! got past first base and it didn't do
f him any good.
I On the other hand, the Rourkes
" mistreated McLaughlin and Thieman
in scandalous style. It might slso be
mentioned, these hurlers' comrades
! also mistreated them a bit
!, McLaughlin got along pretty well
for three rounds. In the fourth he
i started to blow and in the fifth he
v became a total loss. Thelman was a
' loss almost before he got started.
.--The Rourkes counted eight runs in
ttia fifth and 13 batters went to the
plate, It was all very sweet. Every-
i body en the team hit the ball ex
I cept Jackson. Holderman made three
? fiits and would have made four ex
I cent he forgot to touch first base,
t v, For all that it was one-sided and
j aome of the St. Joseph playing re
! sembled that of the well known town
! lot; occasionally it wasn't a bad game
j --especially for the home fansand it

JOE BENZ TO QUIT
White Sox Hurler Says lise of
Moist Pill Has Ccst Him
Many Ball Games.
Among those who will endeavor
to make his mark in the granite block
of base ball fame this season is
Joseph L. Bena ot the White Sox
To more likable chap ever cast his
chapeau into the diamond or ever
propelled the festive apple in a way
intended to befuddle the hostile?.
The very best thing about Joe
Benz is the fact that he smiles. On
all occasions state and otherwise
a grin illuminates his features. We
have seen him taken from the hurl
ing kopje and he smiled as he
went to the showers. He always
Last autumn Joe grew confiden
tial and let loose some inside ideas
of how base ball pitching should be
"I'm off the .pitball," he said. "It
may be all right and it may not be,
but I have lost a lot of ball games
by trying to use it. Hereafter I get
in shape and throw the ball past
the batter. I know I can do it."
To this the skeptical reply:
"He's been trying seven years and
didn't get anywhere." How can he
do it now."
And the answer is that Joe has
reformed he isn't Koini? to use
the "spitter" any more. That should
make him a great pitcher.
Last season Eenz labored in 19
games, won six and lost three and
shut out the hostiles twice. He
gave 23 bases on balls and fanned
25. Thirty-six runs were scored
against him, but only 26 were earned.
The average earned runs per game
was 2.47, which should get a hurler
past when laboring for a pennant
