FIGHTS KILL 8P0RT
To the baseball team:
The average fan who attends an
exhibition of the national sports
pays his money to see a ball game.
He does not go out to the ball dia
mond to view a fight. If the
average fan wanted to see a fight
he would attend a boxing match
The two sports will not mix on a
baseball lot. If the fight element
enters into a contest, It 1b no longer
a ball game or a fight. It loses
Its individuality and becomes a dis
graceful exhibition of poor sports
manshlp and hot-headedness.
We had a ball game here yester
day between the local team and the
Maupin pastimera, One of our men
hit a Maupin player. He should not
have done so. The player has no
right to make decisions. The um
pire presides over the contest just
for that purpose.
When a man engaged in an ath
letic contest so loses control of his
better nature as to fight, clean sport
is robbed of all it possesses its
urge for fairness and good nature
and honest rivalry.
Our team didn't show a lot of,'other dajr8' 80 that h,s ,0T,n k,nd-
class. The pitching was fair and the
backstop performed in acceptable
manner, but when one says that, one

Mother has a day set apart for
her. It is fitting that she should
have. She has furnished the Inspir
ation which has carried the world
to its present state of civilization.
Remove mother's influence over chil
dren in their formative stage ana
we'd no doubt be living today in a
condition of near-anarchy.
But what about poor father? Isn't
he entitled to a little acclaim? Every
good father is a hero. But he gets
no trumpet blare, no rousing cheers.
He doesn't want these marks of
praise. Father is modest.
However, day after day, he is
working to the betterment of the
world through his children. Early
and late he tolls. This toll is not
for himself. Father knows that if
he considered his own needs, he
could knock off work tomorrow and
live soft. He could go to the tropics
and let nature make him a living.
The thought of quitting never en
ters father's head.
He lives fairly and decently for
himself? iNo, for his children. He
wants them to take example from
his every day life and grow up to
be square shooters and morally
clean men and women.
Sometimes father Is near the
breaking point. He doesn't feel welt
He ought to take a vacation. But
he keeps everlastingly at his tasks.
The children have to be looked out'
As the children grow up, father
sees that they must be given col-
lego training if they are to take
their proper places in the sun. So
he works harder, deprives himself
of the new suit, the trip to the sea
side, the automobile he has been
promising himself. The children
must be educated. j
Father Is rather unspectacular.
He does his plain duty day after
day without , a murmur for the
sake of the world a generation re
moved. And wo humbly suggest that fath
er be given a day apart from all
