tended Strong interfered with

the remainder of the game, but
Lelivelt announced he would file
'a protest on it.
Weidell and Donlca were both in
'the game, but neither was in condition-
to play in his usual form and
Waullin was out entirely.
Stutz, a shortstop obtained from
e Three 1 league, played with the
(Miners. Manager Hamilton bench
ing himself and sending Yockey to
(third. Krueger got a home run in
the first and Schenbtrg got another

tall taking 'bad hops in the right
renter field. The visitors got their
first run when Mason walked, went
lo second on Lingle's sacrifice and
scored when Krueger booted Fuhr's
grounder into right field.
They bunched a single by Donica,
B double by Lelivelt and a sacrifice
fly by Lee jn the fourth for another
(counter, and scored their last run
in the seventh when Mason tripled

this season. You know I sort of
raised Sam Vick and Muddy Ruel
for this team when I managed the
Memphis club. I still think that Vick
is one of the b?st hitters I ever
saw and I understand that he has
made a big improvement in his field
ing. Ruel is a snappy catcher and
hits nicely at a ball. He tells me he
is putting on more weight, so I ex
pect to hear good reports on his
hitting when he fully matures. I
like that kid at third base, too.

Before the game Donlin mittedTy
Cobb and inquired about the health
of Ty's batting average.
"It's very poor," declared Cobb.
"I ought to be moving faster than I
am. What do you suppose is wrong
"I'll take a look," said Mike, "and
maybe I can tip you off."
Cobb did not get his hit until the
fifth inning and then it was a doubt
ful slam which Peckinpaugh strad
dled. In the seventh Ty came up
with a runner on.
"One trouble with Cobb is that he
is all tied up," criticised Mike as Ty
crouched at the plate. "A batter
who doesn't relax handicaps him
self, because he isn't able to make
quick shifts. When Cobb is in his
stride he has an easy stand and
doesn't , appear anxious. Look at
him now. He's got an awful grip
on his bat and he's crowding the
plate. Wait until the hot weather
thaws that baby out and notice the
difference in him up thene."

Could anything be lovelier than Mary Miles Minter in this new
picture? It's hard to believe! that anyone could even accuse Mary of
being so temperamental that she spoiled a film. But that's what one
of her former producers declared recently when Mary brought suit to
recover $5,000 back pay. The producer claimed that Mary laughed in
the wrong place, deliberately, because she was peeved. Mary will soon
be seen at the Sun theater in her new picture, "Jenny, Be Good."

Earl Williams, as Yale Durant,
in the picture, has a sense of honor
of strange brand. He seems to
think it is all right to steal securi
ties left in his charge by his dearest
friend, a friend who believed in him
enough to leave his entire fortune
to his care, but he balks at refus
ing to help out a man who once
saved his father from ruin. That
moral obligation must be fullfilled
at any cost. Then he tells the girl
he loves and who loves him that
he is engaged to another girl and
that he absolutely must go through
with his half of the bargain. From
this quixotic interview, he walks out
of the room into the very arms of
the girl's father who informs him
his fiancee has just eloped with an
other man. "Bad news," he an
swers the trusting -father, "I should
