From there on out, the Bruin in
field settled down and a pitching
duel between Golden and Bump
Baylor finally cashed in on four
hits and a walk for two runs in
the twelfth stanza. Golden, who
already collected four hits, open
ed with a walk, but was picked
off first by Carden. Miller and
Lummus followed with singles.
Then came the controversial point
of the game. With two men on,
and two down, Jimmy Witt hit
one in front of the plate. Carden
threw him out, but the umpire
ruled it to be a foul. Karow then
had some hot words with the “blue
boys”, but it was no avail. Witt
promptly singled to score Miller.

The annual spring upswing in
measles prevalence is evidence from
reports to the State Health De
partment by more than 300 city
and county health officers through
out the state.
The prevalence of measles is 338
per cent higher than the normal
prevalence, figured on a seven-
year median, according to Dr. Geo.
W. Cox, State Health Officer. There
were 1,416 cases reported for the
eleventh week of the year and the
median number of cases for the
week over a seven year period was
Since measles is a disease which
should always be given careful
nursing, with isolation of the pa
tient to protect others against the
disease, and since it is character
istic of the disease that it usually
becomes more prevalent in the
spring season, the State Health De
partment issues this warning—
guard yourself against measles,
and if you contract this disease, go
to bed immediately, call your phy
sician, and see that cases are
promptly reported to the local
health officers, and that your home
is properly placarded.
The stage of measles preceding
the eruption is frequently mistaken
for a common cold, and as the dis
ease is highly communicable at
this stage the germs are widely
spread because, as a rule, we take
no common-sense precautions eith
er in treating or protecting others
from a common cold. Measles
causes a congestion and . inflam
mation of the respiratory tract, the
delicate membrane that lines the
eyelids and the accessory sinuses—
these conditions make complications
of the disease fairly common. Com
plications may take the form of
bronchitis, pneumonia, and acute
inflammation of the middle ear.

pression. Sales had dropped badly
because boys just wouldn’t pay
five cents for an ordinary sack
of peanuts but there was where
the concessionaire foxed them. He
went down to Houston and bought
a supply of paper sacks of a small
er size. Three of these smaller
sacks would hold exactly what two
of the regular ones would, but
it had the attraction of seeming
like more. At three sacks for a
dime, they sold like hot cakes. Two
boys would go together, buying
three sacks for their dime; they
could then eat one sack apiece and
have one for defensive purposes,
but it was still the same amount
There is something strange about
the peanut racket. If you buy them
from Walter or Archie or whoever
sells them at the time, and offer
them their own peanuts, they al
ways refuse. It may be from po
liteness or it may be because they
know what has gone into their
produce. But try offering them to
some of your friends in the show
and see what happens.
