Davidson Finds "Future"
In Base Ball vs. Trenches
Claude Davidson, the young in
fielder who quit Connie Mack be
cause, he said, there seemed to be no
future in base ball for a person ot
his high attainments, seems to have
found his "future" in the game after
all. He's playing with a team in the
Ship Yard league. Looks like Mr.
Davidson, feared his "future" might
be in the trenches.
Work or Fight is
Hard Blow to Umpires
In all the talk about what's to hap
pen when base ball shuts down, no
body seems to have mentioned the
umpires or their future. They are
too old to fight and too lazy to work.
Nobody would give them jobs any
way. It's a very distressing outlook
