Cyclist Who Chased Boy Stealing Foul Balls Collided With Auto.

When a small boy picks up all the foul balls knocked over the ball park fence and keeps them he eventually will break up the game. That's what one boy did last August when two teams were playing a friendly game at Association park. Henry H. Topping, 1314 Askew avenue, started on a motorcycle in pursuit of the boy. At Sixteenth street and Park avenue Topping's motorcycle collided with a motor car driven by Richard F. Bourne, and Topping was injured.

Topping is suing Bourne for $10,000 damages. The case is being tried in Judge Robinson's division of the circuit court.
