After the game I take another oil rub, a bath, then an alcohol rub which closes the pores and guards against a cold. "Save for the natural slight soreness that develops when any player starts throwing a ball in the springtime fol- lowing a winter of idelness I never have known the feeling of pain in my arm. A few years ago in Chicago a photographer ran in front of me when I was fielding a ball and his camera cracked my right elbow, keeping me out of the lineup for several days At that I pitched six innings after the in- jury. ]t was the only sore arm that cvd" troubled me. Should Succeed "If young pitchers will only listen to the older heads and pay strict heed to their instructions there's no earthly reason why they shouldn't succeed, provided, of course, there is nothing wrong with their arms. If they come into the majors bent on making that their means of earning a substantial livelihood it is strictly up to them to watch their ps and qs. I know I am getting older, but I honestly believe I ~dll be up here in the big leagues five years from now." Alex looks in wonderful shape after a week's training. Back in 1911, his first campaign with the Pirates, he won 29 games. That he has not slip- ped a great deal is evidneced by the fact that in 1923 he hurled 22 victories.

"KEEP ON KEEPING ON" When a traveling companion re- marked to William Wrigley that he could "save money" by cutting down his advertising, Mr. Wrigley re- sponded: "We're making a fine trip on this train. How much progress do you think we should make if they took off the locomotive?" DISLIKES PERSONALITIES PAINTS 'EM "LILY WHITE" (Continued from Page 1. Column 4) son called him in to edit one of his justly celebrated messages. It was a tough job, but to this day the hard working operators of the A P thank providence for the assistance that was lent. Never ~ndulging in personalities, I can say nothing but good for "Fish" Johnson. Of a "retiring" disposition, at least on occasions, he has a host of friends. He has never been known to exaggerate the importance of his life, nor has a feather of his own making ever adorned his cap. He is a model that the young men of Avalon might well copy. It would be painting the lily to com- ment on the virtues of those others who have blackened the pages of your valued paper. There is T-Bone, for instance. Unassuming an'] inconspicu- ous always, it is hard for the casual acquaintance to get chunnny with one so shy and retiring in his habits. He has not always been so, however. Communing with himself while riding the range in Texas, perhaps had some- thing to do with it. Silence being gol- den, with the rangers within rifle shot, contributed to his natural reticence. Thus it is related that at one time, be- ing unable to get his branding irons out in time, he sought the seclusion of a friendly canyon before the right- ful owners were able to get a bead on him. Setting down on a chummy Cholla, he never even peeped, giving ample evidence of fortitude and pa- tience. Not wishing to compete vcith the vaporous and insiduous outpourings of others, there is no need to mention" that the writer has been forced to as- sociate with the "Milwaukee Sheik," "Bucket Bill," or Art, the demon gol- fer. For fear that they might figure themselves immune, notice is hereby given that even hiding behind a cork- screw may not save them from the glare of publicity to which they are rightly entitled, but from which they are providently spared.

AVALON PRIMARY SCHOOL My Dear Boys and Girls:-- I am sure you have all seen a mag- azine which we sometimes have at school, called "Our Dumb Animals." Do any of you have it every month ? I hope so. In the February issue of this maga- zine it says that from April 7th to 12th is to be "Be-Kind-to-Animals" week. This means that some of us will read animals stories, or write them, or learn something more than we already know about animals, and try to get others to be more kind to them. Now I am sure that you would like to do something, too, so I am.~going to give you all a chance to do so. How would you like to write a short story about an animal, or memorize something about one? It may be about a wild animal, or a pet you have, or any animal about which you know something. If you care to do so, you could add a drawing or a pic- ture or a photograph to your story. Bring this to school not later than Friday, April 4th--before if you get finished sooner. Then, during "Be-Kind-to-Animals" week, we can have the pictures, stories, verses, etc., round our school room, and each of you can vote for the one you like best, and the one that gets the most votes will be the winning paper. In "Our "Dumb Animals" for Febru- ary there are some verses by Leona Upton, entitled, "Why One Boy Likes Abraham Lincoln." I have told you stories about Lincoln's kindness to dumb creatures. Here are the verses: WHY ONE BOY LIKES ABRAHAM LINCOLN By Minnie Leona Upton Of all the Lincoln stories told I think that one's the best of all About him and the little bird, And how he heard its call. You know, the one that tells about How Lincoln, on a summer d~y, Riding on horseback with a friend, Along a tree-lined way, Heard doleful peeps that seemed to come From out the tangled wayside grass; And, though he had no time to spare, He could not bear to pass, E'en though his journey..caUed for haste But stopedhis horse, dismounted there ; And searching in the tangled grass, And stepping with great care, He found a little weakling bird, That fell from out its mother's nest, And climbed the tree, quick as he could, And put it with the rest! Why, such a story makes you know He never could be mean or glum[ It makes you wish so hard to have A boy like him for chum! Perhaps some of you would like to memorize these for our competition. AMY E. MERRIHEW. POLITICS The city election will be held April 14th. The registration closes March 15th The first filing for nominations for the different offices was February 14th.
