EACH YIELDS TWO
Walter Johnson and Joe Wood
Prove Great Puzzlers to
I? la hard cnougn to get base lilts
off Waiter Johnson anb. Joe Woe, and
almost an impossibility to procure home
runs ofT them. This last fa?t Is driv?
en home throusrh inspection of the
American League four-hanger lecords
of 131.'. such inspection showing tiiat
each great box man bad Only two cir?
cuit drives made off li delivery last
season. Harry Lord, of the Chicago
White Sox, should feel proud of him
1 self when he learns that he was the
only Arne: lean League playei to get
homers off these two stars of the tir?
ing line Lord made hi-> circuit clout
off the Xdano phenom on May s and
touched s>mok.y Joe for a hit for tna
grand tour on June Is.
I'ing Bodie made the other homer
off Johnson, and Krank Haker the oth?
er four-bagger off Wood, th* -^ates on
whim thes^- historic hits were manu?
factured being May 8 and October 3. It
will be noted that the two four-ply
smasher off Johnson came >n the sam>
game a gerne, by the way. in which
Johnson was knocked out of the box.
Johnson must have had considerable j
speed, for prior to the time he was
driven to shelter he smashes some
bones in Lee Tennehl'.l's arm by hit- I
ting biss with a pitched ball.
Other star pitchers did not p*??.?'
the skill (or lucki that Johnson and
Wood showed in preventing the manu- j
facture of home runs. Russell r'ord.
for example, yleld?*i ten hits for the
full distance, two of which were pro
cured by Tris Speaker, winner of the
Chalmers car voted to him as the
American League's most valuable play
er. Kd Walsh was located for six ;
homers. Speaker getting one such hit j
off the spitball expert and winning a ]
game with it.

Playground System Before Coun?
cil Not Confined to Summer
The Playgrounds Committee m:k--s
the following Statement
Some people seem to have the im?
pression that the plan for extension of
playground wrrk in Richmond has al?
ready passed the City Council Such
Is not the case. The plan m- tm d
l-y more than forty crganlza'ions has i
received the recommendation of the J
Grounds and Buildings Committee of i
the City Council. B> fort it can be- J
come effective, however, tl.r appro
pflatten muet be recomno nded by the j
Finance Committee. This has not j et i
The extension of the playground '
work proposed plane not only to reach j
more children, but to reach |hw mote,
effectively, and for the entire year, in- |
stead of merely fag the summer months, i
as in the pa;t. It is for this rea- .
son that those urging the plan feel j
that It will do from six to eight
times as much as has been done hitn- |
erto on an expenditure of three times
the ?2..100 which wa s voted last v*ar.
There are two ways in which the
ST.600 which is heir.* asked for for
supervision, leadership, caretaklng aiii
equipment can be spent. It may be
spent all <i-,ir:r.g the summer months,
or it may b?- spent on a smaller num- j
ber of grounds and indoor place* mt\
use dur'ng the entire twelve months
of the year. TlioSo who have studi-o
the matter most carefully feel that
there is a distinct advantage In ex
terming the work over the entire > ear
Instead of doing it only in the sum?
Play All tbe Year.
In the first place, this metnod flts
in with child nature, and the work
is for the benefit of children and young
peopl' ChMd-en do not stop playing
when school begins; they arc playing
gsjllag the nine months of the school
year as well as during the three
months of the summer vacation.
Especially is this true in a city like
Richmond with its rare climate :on
dit'ons Here it is possible for chll- I
dren to be out of doors for most of |
their play for tight months of the
year, and frequently muen longer. To
use the playgrounds only during the
summer months not only falls to take
account of child nature, hut also fails
to use the climatic conditions which
are a big asset In the city of Rich?
In ths second place, continuous work
throughout the year is needed In or?
der thst the playgrounds ai.,i recrea?
tion centres may do ths most lor the
character development of the chlMren
and young people. Great en.pnasis Is
rightly plac-d on the value of proper?
ly .iirected recreation work In tbe de?
velopment of strong and sturdy char?
acter. This work supplements the
work of the schools and makes possi?
ble th?- development of character which
shall use the school training which
th, I it> is giving, as well as prevent?
ing Juvenile delinquency. Charscter is
not formed iusl during ths three sum?
mer months. For real character build?
ing continuous work is necessary, and
fee, running th* playgrounds stid re- ,
creation centres all the year roune, it !
Is possible to do continuous work In
In the third place, the running of
the play spaces all the year round is ,
most economical: >t sees the plant ana j
equipment all ths time. Few beetMsa
men would think of building fsetcrles j
to be used only three months In tbe |
? esr. when it was possible to uee tbe |
facto-les 'welve months. Hence, it 1?
much more economical to run a small?
er number of playgrounds and recrea?
tion 'entree all the yeer round than a
,arrer number for a brief three months
