WILL PLAYERS .WEAR WHISKERS
Is the mustache doming back into
baseball? Graney, Blanding and
O'Neill of the Cleveland team .have
grown mustaches during the spring
training trip and have agreed not to
shave them off until after, the first
game of the season at least.
The mustache was part of the Na
tional pastime during the late eighties
and early nineties. Almost half the
players wore them. The last mus
tache in the major leagues was that
of Jawn Titus, who persisted in wear
ing it years after Bill Everitt, Jimmy
Ryan and others had chopped theirs.
George Wright and Harry .played in
whiskers, but few others have had
the bravery. The return of. the mus
tache will do. some good.
It would compel the photographers
around- thecircuits to throw away the
old plates and get up-to-date pictures
of the athletes.
Any time you doubt that old
maxim that in union there is
strength, try boiling cabbage and tur
nips together. Toledo B.lade.
