HARMONY

nights. I ain't like the rest o' the boys that can go and set all ev'nin' at a pitcher show or hang round them Dutch gardens. I got to be singin' or I am mis'rable.'
" ` Go ahead and sing,' says I. 'I'll try and keep the cops back.'
" ` No,' he says, ` I don't want to sing alone. I want to harmonize and we can't do that 'cause we ain't got no tenor.'
" I don't know if you'll believe me or not, but sure as we're settin' here he went to Ryan one day in Philly and tried to get him to make a trade for Harper.
'What do I want him for?' says Ryan.
" ` I hear he ain't satisfied,' says Art.
" ` I ain't runnin' no ball players' benefit association,' says Ryan, and Art had to give it up. But he didn't want Harper on, the club for no other reason than because he's a tenor singer !
" And then come that Dee-troit trip, and Art got permission to go to Jackson. He says he intended to drop in at the ballpark, but his uncle wanted to borry some money off'n him on a farm, so Art had to drive out and see the farm. Then, that night, this here Waldron was up to call on Art's cousin-a swell doll, Art tells me. And Waldron set down to the py-ana and begin to sing and play. Then it was all off; they wasn't no spoonin' in the parlor that night. Art wouldn't leave the kid get off'n the py-ana stool long enough to even find out if the girl was a blonde or a brunette.
" 0' course Art knowed the boy was with the Jackson club as, soon as they was interduced, 'cause Art's uncle says somethin'' about the both o' them bein' ball players, and so on. But Art swears he never thought o' recommendin' him till the kid got up to go home. Then he ast him what position did he play and found out all about him, only o' course Waldron didn't tell him how good he was )cause he didn't know himself.
" So Art ast him would he like a trial in the big show, and the kid says he would. Then Art says maybe the kid would hear from him, and then Waldron left and Art went to bed, and he says he stayed awake all night plannin' the thing out and wonderin' would he have the nerve to pull it off. You see he thought that if Ryan fell for it, Waldron'd join us as soon as his season was over and then Ryan'd see he wasn't no good; but he'd prob'ly keep him till we was through for the year, and Art could alibi himself some way, say he'd got the wrong name or somethin'. All he wanted, he says,
