While on his way baok to California
"Wouldn't It ba a good Idea to call our

or Kilties? McQruw'a man have a
copyright on tha nickname Qlanta and
tlioy deserve It, for they have accom
plished big things In tha National
"They alwaya will he Giants In the
full sense of the word. Therefore, in
calling our tram the New Yorks we are
not appropriating aomethlng that doesn't
belong to us. The nicknames Hiihlund
era, Yankee ssnd the othera are mean
lnvless. In tritlea outside uf New York
they attract no attantlon.
"In fact, I think that this nickname
bualr.eae In baseball haa been overdone
We are going to try to bring New York
to the top of tha 'leup In the American
League and wo will have 'New York'
on our uniforms. 1 hope the nowapaperi
and the basoball public will call ua th
