AMPUTATING A HEADACHE.
THE,works used to accuse McGraw of buying the pennant John paid
11,000 smackers iot Rube Marquard. The Rube won 19 straight
with the aid of a supreme court decision on, the fourteenth game.
Mac kicked in with 40,000 milled edges for Nehf", which is a lot of money
even in a shipyard. But that 125,000 Yank purchase makes McGraw's
prices look like begging for the pennant. r
That 125,000 buttons for Babe Ruth is a long string of spools even if
the Yanks didn't pay it.
. It's the first time that the janitor of the stove league ever tossed that
marry clinkers into the grate. -
The most you can accuse Ruppert and Houston of is buying a -winter
pennant. They have the coop built, but that old hen is roosting in a
tree, she am t in the coop yet, and, when she does get there, that ain t
saying she is going to lay any -eggs. And even if she does lay they're
liable Jo be goose eggs. You can't judge a year by the size of the calendar.
You said something then, brother.
Now all the Yanks have to do is to buv Sisler to nlav first. Walter
Johnson and Grover Cleveland o throw 'em at the catcher, Rousch, Cobb
and Speaker to lose 'em in the sun; Ray Schalk to catch 'em napping in
center; field and Eddie Collins to ride '.em going into second base.
-Just a minute to charfge reels: Every will has a codicil. After they
grab that arkload of players they will only have to buy six or seven um
pires to calt vcm the way the home fans see 'em. If the bankroll hasn't
rolled over on its back byvthis time they can use a lot 'of pretty scads in
buying up their road games and having 'em transferred to the home park.
What. could be sweeter? . . x
: . .
Why should a good home team be compelled to sro on the road? In
case of a doublc-headerthe Yanks could save their pitchers by buying the
first game and playing the second. Yea bol

FRUIT JUICES AND
CIDERS RULED IN
DRY BAN RADIUS
- t 1
Interpretation of Law Set Forth
By Prohibition Commissioner
In Memorandum Issued.
Washington, Jan. 14. In one of
the broadest constructions yet placed'
on provisions of the act for enforce
ment of constitutional' prohibition,
Prohibition Commissioner Kremer
has ruled that fruit juices and ciders
come within the dry ban if they con
tain more than one-half of one per
cent . alcohol. The commissioner's
interpretation of thelaw was set
forth in a memorandum charging
prohibition directors and inspectors
with the added duty of examining
the alcoholic content of such bev
erages. The drastic regulation goes iiito
effect with constitutional prohibition
January 16. Violation of it carries
the same penalty as .for the manu
facture or sale of stronger liquors.
Officials, in discussing the ruling,
asserted that such a step could not
be taken under wartime prohibition
nor was it enforceable under the
prohibition kws of most of the
states. Hitherto, the bureau of in
ternal revenue has held fast tb the
policy of assessing taxes against fer
mented liquors containing more than
one-half of one per cent alcohol, but
actually, the regulation cwuld not be
applied to ciders and fruit juices be
cause of the technical language of
the law, it was Said. . Strict enforce
ment of the regulation will hold lia
ble dealers in fruit juices and ciders
in which the alcoholic content' in
creases even while in storage. The
department does not intend, how
ever, to gauge all beverages thua
produced, officials'said, but a "watch
ful eye" would) be kept on these
manufacturers "and dealers. Nat
ural fermentation will offer no ex
cuse for evasion of the regulation,
it was declared.
