LEADEROF 6MHiTS| Captain And Shortstop Of First- Class Calibre On Offense | I And Defense I < ~ j I (By Th* A>*<-latrd PrNi.) NEW YORK, Sept. 28.—Out on the _ field directing the defensive play that neither John McGraw, the manager, nor his first assistant, Hughey Jen nings, could do from their places on the tench, all season has been Dave: Bancroft, field captaining the Gianta to another pennant. “Banny is listed by many of the competent critics of the game to be the greatest shortstop in baseball to day. The teams that have won pen nants with a poor, or even mediocre! man at shortstop—the pivot of the de fense —are few and those that have come through winners of the World’s [ Series virtually all had topnotchers. 1 Before the 1922 season ended base ball writers began casting about for the most valuable man to his team j of all the major leaguers and a num- j her mentioned Bancroft, placing him in jttie dags with Joe Tinker, of the ol(®('ubs;v Hans Wagner, of the Pl ratl ; Ranhlt Maranvllle, of J’itts buj%h ami Boston; Jack Barry of the lied Box. and a greater placer Arthur Fletcher, now with th;i|uakerr who was Bancroft’s pre decessor. In Great Field General The Giunt captain is of first-class calibre both on the defense and of fense und as a field genera). As a lead-off man he ranks with the Lest of all time. He covers an amazingly large area in the field and is a pest ering, dangerous runner on the bases. He is considered quite a bit better than the cold figures show him to Le. Lust season Huncroft hit over 300 for the first time in his career. He began his career as a poor butter and his rise has been due to his superior fielding and inspirational defense. Ten years ago lie hit .213 with the Portland, Or eg.. Club, but came up to .254 his tlrst year in the majors with the Philadelphia and was a mem ber of the Quakers the only time that a club representing that city parti cipated In the World Series. In 153 games in which he played last year Bancroft batted .319 and t fielded .960, accepting 396 chances— more than any other National League shortstop and making 382 assists, 396 put outs. 39 errors. He batted in 67 funs, went to first base on balls 66 times and struck out only 23 times, j He scored 121 runs, made 193 hits, for a total of 267 buses, including 26 two-baggers. 22 sacrifice hits and, in addition, he stole 17 bases.

TOMORROW and SATURDAY Richard Barthelmess in “SONNY” ADDED ATTRACTION qoo D COMEDY 1 J GIVES SAFE DATES OF PLANTING WHEAT TO AVOID HESSIAN FLY COLLEGE PARK. MD., Sept. 28 Serious losses, running as high as 25; per cent, of the crop in some locali ties, have been attributed to the Hes sian Fly during the past year, says E. N. Cory, State Entomologist, who cautions farmers against a repetition of the infestation unless the safe dates for planting wheat are observed. The safe dates for planting wheat have been calculated anew, says Mr. Cory, and correspond very closely with the actual practice of the best grain farmers in the different sections of the State. It has also been deter mined that the safe date for sowing wheat to avoid depredations by the Hessian Fly is identical with the average date on which wheat may be sown to secure the best development of the plant and yield of grain. The safe wheat-planting dates as calculated for the different sections of Maryland for an elevation of two hun dred feet as given by Mr. Cory place upper Anue Arundel as between Octo ber 1 and 11, and the lower section, October 2 to 12.

The American mule is 206 times as efficient as the Armenian ox. and 2.68 times as effi cient as the Caucasian horse, accord ing to figures reported by the Amer- I ican farming experts in charge of the agricultural program of the Near East in the Caucasus. These computations are made on a cost-efflciencv basis, taking into con sideration capital investment, upkeep, length of service, and amount of work accomplished. The mule beats even the tractor in small farming operations, but farms of more than 1 500 acres bring down tractor costs per unit of work done to a basis be low that of the mule. American mules were introduced here about a year ago. American re , lief organizations now use 300 of these animals on their various agricultural relief projects.
