It is there Babe Buth, the 18-karat star of baseball, shivers thronj
life from the tail-end of a season 'till he starts on the Southern. trainUg
jaunt the first week in March. '.
A stereotype habit of Boston baseball writers during the bleK
winter months is to visit, the homes of the various balMjnaing aw

touch with his favorites of the diamond. iw
And so, picking out one of the raw

"Mrs, Ruth met us at the door, and
after I was introduced to' the fair
lady Babe suggested that I have
something to eat.
" 'Cook him something nice, Hon,'
"Mrs. Ituth was shy on wood and
suggested that Babe cut some, so
tbe biir fellow walked out a few
paces and felled a couple of green
"I don't chop down any more wood
than we -actually peed at one time,"
Ruth told Webb, adding that he had
found some of hU neighbors pre
ferred their fuel manicured by other
hands than their own.
The fire was finally started." Webb
continued, "but after a few mlouUI
Babe took a look at it and was fur
from satisfied tha way. It was .pda
pressing. ' j

"The big feow walked over to"i
