UNGLAUB BOASTS OF VOCABULARY SINCE TAYLOR,
" fi'AVTT. HTM WP'.PtRTP'.P '
By Billy Evans.
Bob Unglaub, former major
league star, tells of an, incident
that happened during his short
reign as manager of the Boston
John I. Taylor, always noted
for his eccentricities, made Un
glaub manager under unusual
conditions. The club was with
out a manager. .Several play
ers desired passesfor the game,
but none cared to ask Taylor for
them. A straw vote was taken
and to Unglaub fell the lot of
getting the passes.- When Un

boys and said : "After this when
you -want passes, ask me for
them. I'm manager of .the club."
Unglaub went into the office fot

$50 and suspended for three days
for the second.
Things were going badly in
Boston and Taylor was peeved.
He called Unglaub into his office
before the game and asked him
what he said to the umpire. After
Unglaub had repeated the mono
logue Taylor replied :
"Your vocabulary is the most
extensive I've ever heard and
yqur selection of descriptive ad- .
jectiyes equally extensive.-I've de

save -money by presenting this
gift, provided. you make use of its
contents. Unglaub hurried to
the dressing room. On opening
the package he found a diction

The Tampico, Mexico, oil field's
