between intercollegiate and pro-,
izes it more than Il-.chiAflhrdll
fessipnal baseball, and'Jioone
realizes it more than, I.do," con-
fesses Arthur "Toots" 'Schultz, of
the Phillies' pitching corps.
"I don't ' suppose," he con
tinued, "that one college player
in a' hundred can appreciate the
vast difference between the major
league brand of balL and -that
played -by college teams. If they.
JdKH:hey would, pay more .atten
tion to the , coaches, usually ex
'big leaguers who could teach

Schultz, known as "Toqts" to
-the Phillies, for reasons of their
'own, ought' to -know whereof he
!lisps,for he went to -the Phillies
'last spring, considered the best
'college pitcher of the'year. Like

sidered good enough to step from
!the U. of P.'S' diamond into the
;box for Dooin's dolls. t
