Cincinnatus, who lends his name to an Ohio city, was a peaceable Roman most of the time. But when obliged to defend the right, he would rear up and swap smites with anybody. Of a similar stripe are the Reds of Cincinnati, a baseball club dedicated to plenty of justice and fair play, especially for themselves. Catching the umpires in some intolerable miscalculations in Milwaukee last week, Billy Martin and Pete Whisenant sallied ferociously from the dugout to set things aright. But neither Martin's bellowing nor Whisenant's bat moved the officials—except to toss both men out of the ball game.
