Miss Helen Dauvray telegraphed President Von der Ahe yesterday that the Dauvray Cup and medals had been forwarded to him, and would reach [St. Louis] tomorrow.

I think we need something like this today, rather than that dull World Series trophy we have now. We need a Cup for teams to fight over. Can't we find an actress to donate a Cup and some medals? I think Alyssa Milano would do it. She's a big baseball fan. Wouldn't it be a better world if the winner of the World Series received Miss Milano's Cup?
