generally believed here that six-round

Brains and Courage
"Sportsman," In the Boston tllobe,
brings out an Important point. "The
Hoston Americans of 1903," he observes,
"deservo to bo rated more on their
courage than their bralne."
Brains In baseball or any other game
Is too often confused with courage. A
good game ball club keeps on fighting
nnd thereby keeps Us head up and Its
oyes open. In this viy, through its
nerve. It Is able to keep track of pro
ceedings at large and to be ready to
seize any handy opening In a pinch.
If tho bralnest ball club on earth be
gan to quit, there would soon be a suc
cession of bonehead plays.
"The only time," says Johnny Evers,
"that I ever lost heart and let my head
sag was In that tenth Inning of the
third world series game." And by so
doing Johnny came near making a
bone of historic mold.
When It comes to any direct defini
tion of courage In sport, we pass the
buck. Having seen a man who never
quit in a football game or in a baseball
game, quit cold in more than one golf
match, the answer is too badly tangled
to be unraveled here.
The Oood King Arthur Series

Of murder or the Jlfc?.
