YOUNG BALL PLAYERS
DECREASE JN MINORS
Few Good Performers Coming
Up From Bush Leagues.
Recent War Killed Off Many of Small
er Circuits, Thus Lessening Crop
of Promising Recruits Good
Thing for Veterans.
One of the serious- remits of the wnr
from n baseball standpoint Is shown In
fhe lack of young ball players comlna
up from the minor leagues. Of all the
recruits taken south by the different
mnjor league teams but very few nro
to be seen on the tenni now that the
championship scasny Is under full
sway. The scarcity of young boll plu.v
ers Is a good thing for the veterans,
for It will keep them In service long
er, but It means that It will grow more
and more dlfllcult to recruit the big
lencue teams unless there Is n greatly
Increased Interest In minor league ball M
oh played In the smaller cities.
The war killed off most of the small
er leagues, thus lessening the crop ot
young ball plajers to be purchased
nnd drafted. For two yenrs the minors
were either not operating nt all or do
ing so on n xery small scale and with
Inferior plners. Most of the boys who
would have been starting out on a
bnseball career were In the army In
those days nnd mnny of them will nev
er go bnck to baseball. The supply ot
baseball talent was almost entirely cut
oft for at least two years and the re
sult Is that most of the major league
clubs nre shy of recruits and are going
ahead with their veteran plners.
The present condition nmong the
minors Is much Improved so far, es
pecially ns the larger leagues go, but
It Is not nt all like It was before the
wnr. The reason for this Is that sal
aries and wages In other positions nre
no vnstlv Increased that a lad of any
real skill or ambition can do much bet
ter by sticking to his Job than he can
by playing In n minor league of lesser
classification. It used to be that a boy
off the lots looked upon a snlnry of
$150 a month as pretty good money
for starting out with a ball team. Now
ho can earn much more than that by
staying at home and playing on Sun
days and holldas with some Indepen

"BAREFOOT JOE" VERY
CAREFUL OF THE BALL
When Joe Jackson was pluy
lug with n team down South
Carolina way many years ago,
he didn't wear $10 baseball
For llnnuclal reasons Joe
wore nothing on his feet. He
roamed all over the briars, stub
ble and other litter In the out
field, which Included numerous
broken bottles, without It both
ering Ii I in.
At the end of the fifth Inning i
of u certain game Jackson came
In to the bench and expostulated
with the manager.
"You'd better get that glass
out of center Held," he said, "It's
cutting the hall nil to pieces."

Jimmy Ring of Champion Cincinnati
Reds Picked Up More Than Coin
In Crucial Games.
Smnrt ballplayers come nut of a
world series with something more
than a cut on the gate. Jimmy Ring
did. A year ngo he didn't startle any,
of the clubs he was billed to start
against. He sa,s the big series
taught him u lot.
"Those close games made a pitcher

every ball I pitched. In doing this T
