Late in the season, in a game in
Cincinnati, Heinie Groh batted what
was proclaimed to be the shortest
safety since the game began. The
ball glanced off his bat. fell on the
plate, and lay there. Bill Rariden,
, who was catching, didn't see where

to grab it up and effect a putout, but

Under the rules, that was a fair
ball,-for the catcher had struck it
while it was still in fair ground. Al
so, under, the rules, it was not an
. "error, for the catcher merely grazed
it and had no chance to hold it
exactly : as if it had been hit to
shortstop, and just tipped the short
stop's glove. Hence it was a fair
hit, and, as Hickman never stopped
till he got to second, it had to be
counted as a double.

Base Ball and Foot Ball
Granted Most Leeway by
' Reason of Little Rubber
Used in Making.
New York, Oct. 5. Athletic sup
plies and equipment will face sweep
ing reductions as a result of the lat
est rulings of the war industries
board and it is not unreasonable to
expect price advances if the de
mand outstrips the supply. Restric
tions have been placed upon the
produttion of certain of the more
common sport supplies, and in other j
cases further manufacture is pro-1
hibited after the present stock of!
material in hand is exhausted.
The followers of the various
branches' of sport will Bote with in
terest that more leeway is allowed
in the matter of the base ball and
foot ball output than is the case in
tennis and golf. This is due not to
discrimination, but rather to the fact
that greater quantities of rubber are
used in the manufacture of the halls
used in these games than in base
ball and foot ball. According to
the latest ruling, not more than 40
per cent of the tennis and golf
equipment produced during the last
four months of 1917 shall be manu
factured during the final months of
the present year, la the field of
base ball and foot ball the maximum
is put at 60 per cent, which gives
a wider latitude to the producer.
Stop Making Uniforms.
In the uniforms department the
regulations specify that no material
will be availahlp after the nianu- i
facturer has used the supplies now
in stock. This will affect foot ball
and base ball to a far greater extent
than will be the case among the golf
and tennis players, for while spe
cial clothing is considered desirable
among many of the devotees of
these games, it is not absolutely ne
cessary. Because of the greater per
sonal contact in base ball and foot
ball, uniforms with special padding
and armor are not a matter of per
sonal choice, but rather essential as
a protection against bodily injuries.
During the past year the price of
new athletic equipment and repairs
to old paraphenalia has mounted in
keeping with all other commodities.
The cost of all material and labor
involved has increased as the player
of any game realizes when he takes
a tennis racquet to be restrung; a
golf club to be repaired or sport
shoes to be resoled. Under the cir
cumstances the outfitting of teams
next season, should organized sport
play be possible, will be an addi
tional tax upon the management of

FOR CITY TITLE
Leading LaDouceur by Three
Holes, With Three-Fourths
of the Play Finished He
Jack W. Hughes, present city golf
champion, will retain his title for
another year unless some dark horse
turns up in the city golf tourney at
the Country club today and exhibits
the Chick Evans style of playing the
game. Unable to wat for the day
set for the finals in the tourney
Hughes played 18 of of his 36 holes
yesterday afternoon, turning in a
card showing he had used 82 strokes
to pocket the ball 18 times. The first
36 holes of the tourney, medal play,
were played last Sunday at the Field
club and the final 36 will be com
pleted before sundown.
A week ago Saturday Hughes, ac
companied by W. N. Chambers, W.
J. Foye. and M. H. LaDouceur stole
a march on the other entrants and
had their cards for the initial 18
holes posted when the golfers ap
peared in the early dawn to make
the rounds. The quartet repeated
the performance yesterday with the
result that LaDouceur and Foye
each turned in a score of 83, Cham
bers 84, and Hughes 82. Since it is
generally conceded that one of the
quartet will win tiie blue ribbon, the
best bet at present seems to be
Hughes, whose tota llast week was

Major League Salary
Before September I
.Chicago, Oct. 5. A 'sweeping rut
in against attempts of major league
base ball players to collect salaries
on contracts extending beyond Sep
tember 1, the date fixed by the gov
ernment for the suspension of pro
fessional base ball, was handed
down tonight by the National Base
Ball commission, which held such
claims to be unjustfied and illegal.
The decision was announced by
President Johnson of the American
league, a member of the commis
sion. The commission's decision was
based on the case of "Jake" Dau
bert of the Brooklyn Nationals, who
sought to collect $2,150 from the
Brooklyn club because his contract,
calling for $9,000 a season) was ter
minated on September 2. Daubert
contended that under the conditions
stipulated in his contract, which did
not expire until October 14, the
Brooklyn club could not have re
leased him without his consent and
he demanded that the terms of the
agreement be fulfilled.
The commission's ruling, which
probably will apply to all similar
cases, held that the club could not
be compelled to pay Daubert the
full amount agreed upon because
under the "work or fight" order his
contract was virtually rendered il
legal and impossible. The player s
services could not be utilized by the
Brooklyn club after the date fixed
for the suspension of the game, the
commission ruled, and the situation
could not have been contemplated
by either party at the time the con
tract was made.

Don't Hunt Unless You

Every year the hunting season
brings with it it's spoils in the form
of human sacrifices. For the bene
fit of gunners who are going after

don'ts is given:
Don.t take any chances. The
function of a shot gun is to scatter
shot, but be very careful where you
Don't blaze away in haste and
don't get excited. Many a shooter
has filled his favorite dog full of
lead just because he was over
anxious. Don't point a gun at any person
in jest. It is always the gun that
"we didn't know was loaded" that
goes off and does the damage. The
only time to point a gun is when you
intend to kill.
Don't take every rustle of a bush
or a bough to be a sure indication of
game. Remember sometimes an in
quisitive person has a penchant for
being in strange places.
Don't carry a loaded gun through
the street or on cars, trains, auto- j
mobiles or any other kind of vehicle, I
or leave it around farm houses to !
have some child playfully blow a 1
head off.. j
Don't get excited and shoot I
without making sure your object is j
game, uon v snoot until you see
the rabbit, and then be sure that he
is clear of both man and dog.
Don't drag a gun through the
fence with the muzzle pointed
Don't climb over fences with your
gun or lean it against a tree until
you get over. Put it through the
fence and on the ground, business
Don't hunt with anyone that you

powder behind and one and one

Don't load your gun until you are
actually ready for business. At all
other times it should be empty.
Keep your finger off the trigger
until you are looking down the
barrel at your game.
Don't use a cheap gun, as it is
apt to explode when a heavy charge
