Illinois, and first looked at tho

to hit tho train for that wolcomo
spot In Carml "protty quick" whon
he can throw a roll of groonbacks
down on his mother's tablo and say:
"It's yours; tako a rost."
In scanning ovor Illue's record as

From tho number of "post mor

Sunday tho question of support of
tbo local Klanrath Kalli loam entorn
about tho point, "When will tho
roprcscntntlvo team bo picked? and
when will dally practice bo followed
rollgloudy?" Theso two questions
havo been argued pro and -ion by
nearly every fan as woll as attend
ants of tho games, slnco tho forolgn
games wero considered.
Ono of tho fans "who Is regarded
as' an optimist under tho most try
ing of situations stated that unless

tholr Interest In tbo gamo hero. To
allow this pessimism to creep In at
this point In baseball season would
b fatal but that fact Is so plain
that every fan realizes it without
making comment or attempting to
stato his position, as one of tho
In tho contention that centralized
authority is needed, tho advocates
of the plan nre not without ground
In their itatements, for' that fcaluro
is plain, and commented upon dally.
Tbo plan advanced to overcome this
weakness rests with tbo city loaga
managers, and today somo agree-
ment must be reached for the sake
of the game.
It Is suggested that a captain be)
chosen for tho season, one who
knows tho gamo from every point
and ono who would rulo with firm-
ness and Insist on a dally practice;
of at least ono hour, all players on
tho field at tho samo tlmo. Tho
action of the Weed team on tbo
local grounds Sunday evidences
what dally practice and team work
does, every man knowing Just what
to do at all times. The lack of this
same unity of action was more than:
apparent In tho local team, but Un
der Jho circumstances they did ex
tremely woll, only they wore not
of tbo Weed caliber.
No criticism is attached to Mont
gomery for his selection of tbo play
ers that played Weed Sunday bo
acted sincerely and In accordance
with his Judgment ,and that Is all
that any ono man can do. Lack ot
practice and costly errors did tho
work, and Weed carried off the vic
tory. Falk did not live up to thd
standard that Montgomery consid
ered him to -bo after a Southern'
California leaguo experience, and.
when Foster -went In to retrieve tbo

Individual work, there was no come
back. Tho gamo was over.
As the body Is guided from tho
"head,' so should a baseball team
bo directed by a firm, wlso and
enreful leader, a pacemaker. Tha
quickest solution that can bo mado
by tho city Ioaguo owners lays In al
mass meeting of all the players, the
executive heads and the business
men and fans, all together In a'
"blg-brothor, get-together booster
meeting," to settlo tho question of
olther a well-drilled team for tho
