CUB WORK ON BASES -FATAL IN
By Mark Shields -
Candidate Charles Evans Hughes,
the human hammer, is to see the
opening game of the world's series.
Charles should cool the heated pas
sions of the partisan fans. We figure
he will root for Brooklyn, that club
being known as the Dodgers. And
we can imagine Charles Evans in the
stand sitting next to another Brook
lyn rooters when -the Dodgers are at
bat Our imagination reveals:
Brooklyn has a man on first base.
None are out. Manager Robinson
gives the batter a signal to sacrifice.
Charles Evans never lets out a peep.
He waits for the result of the judg
ment of the man who had to make a
decision and direct matters. The
batter, trying to bunt, pops weakly
to the pitcher and the runner is dou
bled off first
Then Charles Evans uses his ham
mer In practiced fashion. "The play
waB fundamentally wrong," he
howls. 'Manager Robinson should
have first investigated and deter
mined what the results of this play
would have been. I stand for batting
first and batting efficiently. This was
an abject surrender to the Red Sox
. ."But what should he have done?"
queries the other Brooklyn rooter.
Should Robbie order the hit-and-run?
What would you have done?"
"I would have protected the inter
ests of my club," answers Charles
Evans. "I would have protected the
interests of my club."
"But just how he would have done
so remains a mystery to the second
Having found a club that runs
bases worse than they do themselves,
the White Sox are enjoying these
beautiful autumn days and have
their hearts set on the winner's share
