He Apparently Doesn’t Love Roosevelt

     A Texas observer of politics and baseball manages to express his opinion of Theodore Roosevelt by sending Collier’s Weekly the following baseball nine:

Catcher-Captain, Theodore Roosevelt
Pitcher, Charles A. Guiteau
First Base, John Wilkes Booth
Second Base, Leon Czolgosz
Third Base, Benedict Arnold
Short stop, Aaron Burr
Left-field, William M. Tweed
Center-field, Ananias
Right-field, Judas Iscariot

     From a baseball point of view, comments Collier’s, the efficiency of this nine may be questioned, but it leaves no doubt about our Texas friend’s judgment of the ex-President.
