THE amazing predominance of
low-hit games and pitching

circles. Hat the ball been changed.
3t was the cold weather to blame t
1 certainly think that the ban in
both leagues is very noticeably less
lively than it used to be. The Jack
rabbit seems to be dead.
. The question remains whether
Oil is a good thing for the game.
A lot of people seem to think that
the rabbit ban made a farce out of
baseball, and that tha fans had
grown tired of slugging orgies and
countless home runs.- Aceordin ta
these critics, the thrill of the long
hit and the home run is eliminated
by their too f reouent occnireiu!.
These critics say that when too
many circuit smashes avm hit. h
home run becomes cheapened and
lloses Its bis; appeal. Then, too, the
speedy, scientific type of game pro
duced by the less lively ball la aatd
to have more interest to the fans
than a mere contest of slugging
power between two teams which
play nothing but "power basebalL"
However, for my pert. I think at
least as much can be said In favor
of the old lively ball as can be
charged against it. After all, the
punch is the thing t&at has the big
gest appeal to tne ordinary zan,
whether in baseball or any other
sport It cannot be forgotten that
the home run 'erase inaugurated by
Ruth certainly put many a thrill
into the ame that was lackinr in
the days of the old "Hitless Won
ders." After all, the era of the
lively ball was the period of base
ball's greatest prosperity, 't
The low-ecore, scientific type of
game probably appeals more to the
real scientific students of the game,
but the average fan still likes the
old smackerino. and the fine nohrts
of baseball strategy are lost on at
least a portion of tha crowd at any
The argument for the lively ball
Golf is seldom a monotonous
game, bat if it ever does seem
that way, we recommend that
yon pick out a nice windy day.
Starting oat with the wind at
your back, you can feel Jnst like
Walter Hagen as your mediocre
drive sails and sails, far past
the SOO-yard mark which may
ordinarily represent your ultima
thole. Encouraged thereby, your
approach shots will click nicely,
and you won't mind if they sail
a few yards too far.
Provided the first three or four
holes are laid out in the same gen
eral direction, you'll continue to
bang out great drives and match
them with slick approaches; and
tnen, maynap, you come to a
tricky short hole. Your confidence
is still helping out and your iron
shot lofts beautifully; and then
Just in front of the green a mys
terious gust ot wind will grab it
and shunt it off into a trap.
And right on top of that blow
to your pride, you come up to
the next tee and face directly
into the wind, and you smack a
tremendous drive, just right ex
cept 1 hat it Is a little high and
then have to duck to keep it
from blowing right back into
your face. That ball will rise
and rise, fighting the wind, and
So you walk the few steps up
to it, and knowing now what you
are up against, you whale away
mightily at that pesky pellet and
we don't have to tell you what
happens then. It takes you five
good shots to reach the five-par
green, and your morale being
what it is right then, you take
three putts. Goodbye score.
If we took the trouble to re
cord the results of every ball
game that was scheduled for
Sunday and Monday, nine-tenths
of them would be the same story
and rate the same headline. The
Senators and the Elks didn't
play Sunday, the Bearcats didn't
play Monday. There is little
hope for any of the three games
scheduled for today. It's a good
time to be a philosopher.
Tbe Senators and the Elks, by
the way, have scheduled a game
for Friday afternoon at 5:15
which will provide a good oppor
tunity for local fans to see the two
teams which will represent Salem
this summer. Tbe Elks have draft

I AST year I made a great discovery! I learned
j that Riverside Tires are made by the same
company that makes one of America's 4 leading
brands. They're exactly xhc same-same materials,
same workmen, same specifications. They differ
in trademark and price -Ward's price is 20
lower. What's more, Riversides are guaranteed
to give absolute satisfaction.
When I heard that, I put them on my Packard
and I've been using them ever since. That saving
of 20 will buy a lot of things I need. No tire
salesman will ever get me to pay extra for other
tires again. I'm married to Riversides.
