FEW BALL PLAYERS QUIT THE GAME AT THE HEIGHT
OF THEIR CAREERS'
By Billy Evans.
Few ball players retire at the
height of their careers. Fielder

Jimmy Callahan, White Sox
manager, left baseball when he
was regarded as a star. After
several years in semi-pro ball
around Chicago, he returned to
,the Sox last season and was the
prize "come-back" of the year.
Callahan was asked recently
when he expected to retire for
"Not till the. boys in the left

good team for years and Clarke
has always played an important

bench this season.
Ty Cobb's career has been a
round of hero worship. He dreads
criticism. "I'm going to quit," he
said recently, "while the public
looks upon me as among the best.
Cy Young, on the other hand,
says he will stick as long as the
fans will stand for him. "I'll stay
in the big league until I get
transportation to the bushes;
then I'll quit "baseball," says Cy.
Little old New York isn't so
terribly up-to-date after all, for
she suddenly discovers that, al
though she does three-fourths of
the port business of the nation,
her methods of loading and un
loading ships hasn't changed
much since early Dutch times.
A New Jersey girl saved a man
from drowning by the use of her
fur neck piece. That looks 'sus
picous in Leap Year.
