FOR CHINESE NEWSPAPERS
During: the tims that Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Holman. recently re
turned, to Salem, were in China,
Mr. Holman, besides his profes
sional music work, jwas catcher
for the Shanghai baseball team
last year, the team that won the
championship of the orient. Mrs.
Holman conceived the idea ol
writing tip the games in a humor
ous, George Ade-Ring Lardncr
sort of style for the Chinese 'dail
ies. The "China ! Tress", the
largest newspaper in China, ac
cepted her manuscript with
avidity, the series! being very
popular with the admirers of the
American sport. 'Mrs. Holman

Well; girls. I've been asked to
write something about baseball
for this paper, and while I don't
know much about the game, I
will undertake to make a few re
marks, as I've nothing else to do.
Why! they should pica on me to
write this particular story. 1 do
not know unless it is because my
husband plays on the team. I do
not even know of any good rea
son why he should play baseball,
as he never gets anything out of
it except sprained fingers, wrists
and a game leg now and then.
I've often asked him why he
preferred playing ball to staying
at home and keeping me company.

Umpire Are Mean
Well, I Trent to the games this
last week to watrh the V. of C.
Glee club and Shanghai teams
play. I didn't care ao much for
the ball games themselves, as I
did to see those nice looking: boys,
and I think it was real mean of
the umpires not to give them one
of the games.
I noticed that the people who
sat aronnd me in the grandstand,
seemed to be very familiar with
the players, calling them by their
first names. One man, who sat
near me. seemed to be more rude
than the others 1 heard him say.
"Oh you bonehead." I don't know
who he meant I have been intro
duced to all (ft the players, but
never remember meeting anyone
by that nrme.
A little later on I heard this
man say "Bills stole second."
Now I've met Mr. Bills, and he
certainly doesn't look like a man
who would steal. Probably the
man had been drinking.
Yjou know, baseball is all rlJtht
anrr exciting enough at times, but
I think if they were to have a
canaret singer come out and do a
good lively jazzy number, or a
hula hula dancer once in a while,
between innings, it wonld help
immensely there would be more
"pep" to the game also more
neople in the grandstand. This
is only a suggestion, and maybe I
am wrong, but it seems to me It
Is kind of tiresome watching a
ball game all afternoon.
To tell you the truth I don't
believe I saw much of a ball
game; I met a lady friend out
there, who had brought the lat
est Vogue fashion book with her.
She only came out to please her
husband. Well, we spent most of
the afternoon with the fashions
but now and then' got a glimpse
of the game when that 'awfully
rude man who had evidently tak
en too mnch liqnor, would shout
nut some loud and horribly insult
ing remark to one of the players.
One thing. I think Doctor
Downs who is manager, or what
ever you call It. of the team,
should see to. is t have plenty of
baseball suits on hand, because
one time when Mr. Wllholt was
running to second base, he fell
down and tore his trousers. It
was a sad accident, of course.. but
the worst part of it was he had to
play all the rest of the afternoon
in that torn suit. . which took
something from his dignity, and
I'm sure took his mind from his

I heard a remark out there that
Holman had a glass arm; I hap
pen to be in a position to know
that neither one of his arms is
glass. Such remarks are very
unnecessary unless one is quite
positive. Anyway, how could a
man play baseball with a glass
arm? It's absolutely absurd. But
of course it takes all orts of peo
ple to make up a world.
Along towards the end of the
game, everybody stood up. 1
know it is customary to stand,
when a national anthem is being
played, but I never heard any
kind of music. However. I was
n't sorry as I needed to stretch
and yawn a bit; those seats. were
beginning to get pretty hard.

East Africa, Mexico, Cuba, Spain,
Portugal, Australia and Mediter

North Sea, Baltic and Rhine traf

aspect. .Handicapped by shortage
of ships the Germans have turned
their attention to conversion of
warships to commercial usages,
the construction of motor ships
out of sailing vessels, and to the
study of oil fuel as a substitute
for the m; exoensive coal fuel.
Revival of German commerce
is indicated by the increased num
ber of ships calling at the more
important ports. During the
first 11 months of 1920, 4369 Tea
sels of a tonnage of 3,892,240
arrived at Hamburg, as compared
with 1854 vessels and 1.303.629
tons in 1919, and 1 3, $ 7 5 vessels
of 13.006.426 tons in the first 11

majority of the Irish people con
tinues as the dominant the only
legitimate authority in Ireland.
It Is treated as an authoritative
body. None of the municipal or
county bodies which pledges al
legiance to it have withdrawn
from that position.
The Dail Eircfhn's instructions
are obeyed by these subsidiary
bodies and all dealings with the
Irish local government board,
which represents the British gov
ernment, are barred. For thl
reason the board is unable to
make its customary audit of coun
ty and city accounts. The result
is increasing in difficulty in every

faced with two sets of instruc
tionsone from British govern
ment representatives, or the local
government board; the other

king's bench decree, designed to
compel these collectors to obey
the law, has - been unavailing.
Obedience or crown instrnctions,
in many cases, would doubtless
bring severe punishment, if not
death, to the collector.
Tax collecting, needless to say,
is not brisk. The balances in lo
cal treasuries are proving insuf
ficient to enable authorities to
maintain public institutions. In
Sligo, banks have refused to per
mit overdrafts, and there is no
money to pay the contractors who
are therefore withdrawing their
services. Patients In hospitals
are without sufficient food and
the inmates of the poorhouse are

aldermen approved the sugges

jnen of the city be asked to ad

situation, but there was no re

At Bray, an important seaside
