The Brooklyn manager is a strong
believer in the necessity of handling
different players in different ways.
He quickly reads their nattrresand
treats them accordingly. He says no
two men can be handled exactly
alike. x
It was Robinson's ability to handle

all, that made the wrynecked south

On one occasion he took a group
of his men on a fishing trip and at no
time was baseball mentioned, though
the club at that time was in a terrible
slump. It is because of his good fel
lowship and kindly ways that Robin
son is admired by his men from the
lowliest rookies up to the stars like
Zack Wheat, Jake Daubert, Georg
Cutshaw, Ed Pfeffer, Larry Cheney
and others, and to a man they're say-
ing: "He's a grand old scout."
Pfeffer, the iron man of the Dodg
er staff, to date has won seven games
and lost only two for a winning per
centage of .778. He has been unable

Cooper and 'Joseph B. David copped
seats in the superior court 'in the
face of the united opposition of the
Examiner and American. One more

The two sheets, whose support is
said by many to have spelled political '
death for the Harrison family when
that branch of the Democrats be
came known as the Hearst-Harrison
clan, fired one editorial after anoth
er at the Sullivan pair, up for re
