The trade engineered between the
Philadelphia Athletics and the Bos

and Amos Mnunk return to the
Quaker City in exchange for Out
fielder, Bobbie Roth and Second
Baseman Shannon, is likely to prove
advantageous to both clubs. The
appearance of the two former Ath
letic stars will" serve to bolster the
tailenders considerably. It was gen
erally known in Boston that there
was considerable discontent among
tne players over tne installation ot
Ed Barrow as manager during the
absence of Barry, who was serving
in the navy. Factions formed be

THE YEAR OF
HILE the prohibs are stepping
couia nang earrings on, tne brewers are packing expressions, that
.look like the claws of a hunerv owl.
The Dec of Independence chirps that all men are born free and equally
thirsty, but fromwhere we lean on the brass rail it looks as if some nimble-fingered
prophiboozenist has marked the Dec. Markham's brother
to the ox is also brother to the camel. Around July the Fifth the boys
will be flat-wheeling around with their tongues hanging out so far that
their tonsils will get sunburned. '
Everybody is snared in the prohibeerinist draft and there are no outs
for silly feet or loose eyes. No exemptions for scrambled arches or wild
whiskers in the toupee. Before the armistice the lads in uniform couldn't
snitch a drink. Impossible to grab a glee powder in uniform. Which
wasn't the tough part. The corrugated part was to keep the drink in
your uniform after you got it there. The headache foundries were
crocheting liquor out of everything from 17-year locusts to stuffed hair
parlor sofas. After July we will all be in the army. There will be noth
ing to drink and millions to drink it. . '
STAGGERING HOME FROM A STAG.
There are some cits who could die of thirst in water up to their neck
pieces. They'll be outta luck like a flea on an iron deer. There are a
bunch of the birds we will miss though. F'r instance:
THE WEEPING SOUSE.
This bird would park his toes on the brass bar rail 'and inhale the
snifters like a cow grabbing buttercups. About tne 11th stanza he sud
denly remembers that there wasn't any Santa Claus and would bust loose
with a set of tears that looked like the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
His shoulders would shimmy with sorrow and his frame would rattle like
a rheumatic darky in two gulf breezes. He'd cry until he had to swim and
then he'd cry because he couldn't swim. Prohibition is the plumber that

. This cuckoo could make the Tower of Pisa look straighter than a
left field foul line. After he had oiled up on a few dozen yards of nose
rouge his cargo would shift and his left shoulder would swing up like a

going around'in circles like a glass-eyed zebra on a Coney Island carousel.

THE SINGINQ RUMMY.
After absorbing his quota of near beer and far beer this baby would
decide that Caruso was all wet. He'd warm up on a few notes from the
"Banks of the Wabash" and then clatter into "The Moss Covered Bucket."
The more moss on the bucket the better. That showed it hadn't been
used in a long while. After gargling a couple of verses from "Sweet
Annaline" he would sing all he knew of "Home, Sweet Home." He knew
all of that song except the address.
' ' THE KISSING SOUSERINO.
Before slamming the door from the outside, this baby had to kiss the
barkeep by-by. His evening wasn't complete unless he blew his gin
spangled breath on everybody in the works. Just as popular as camphor
with a moth, but not quite so fragrant. He'd drink himself cross-eyed
and then buzz, "Here's looking at you." When he wite, he wasn't, and
when he wasn't he was. What can you do with a sappMike that?

On the heels of stupendous Amer

mass athletics had failed."
Really, it's hard to swallow.
"Results," Bob reports, "were re
ceived from only three universities,
Chicago, Wisconsin and Illinois.
Rain interfered with plans of other
universities." So that's it. The
plan wasn't given a trial. It would
be a gross injustice to the realm of
collegiate sports to say that "mass
athletics had failed."
Mass Brings Success.
For perhaps prejudice reasons the
writer can't see anything but
"massed" athletics. That which
made Carlysle famousin the days of
Glen Warner, thatwhlch made

Get rid of it, whatever it costs you
