SLUGGER BENNY KAUFF IDOL $ OF THE SCOREBOARD CROWD Looked for Home Run First Time U p, App are ntly Satisfied With His Two-Bagger. Burns, Herzog and Kauff?that was the way the first three men stood on the Giants' batting order today, but the greatest of these was Kauff, in the estimation of local fans who watched the fifth g-ame of the world series this afternoon as depicted on The Star's electric scoreboard. The home-run slugger of the New York team was about the sole topic of conversation among the fans this after noon. "Dat boy is goin* to knock out some o' dem hits dis afternoon." said an en thusiastic colored man in a plaid cap as he watched the scoreboard. Whether or not "Benny" lived up to this faith in his batting prowess may -be seen from reference to the box score of the game in another column. "He don't hit nutln* but dem big league hits," agreed another colored boy standing near by. "He shore is some htttah," he con tinued. "He never got no hits in Chicago, but Jes' as soon as he get to Yawk he bang *er out twice. Two home runs^ Yes, sir, two home runs." "Two home runs," came the echo, awed tones. "Two home runs," said some one els* in the crowd. It sounded like a musical comedjf chorus. Just about this time Kauff came t<f the bat. There were two on bases. "Now watch dat boy," screamed th+ first colored man, getting enthusiastic. The bell on the scoreboard rang. "Whee!" shouted the friends o# Benny, and from the strength of th? yell it seemed as if the whole crowd was for him. "Hooray!" and a who]J lot more like that. The bell clanged again. Indicating that KaufT's slam was a two-bagger. "Whee! Whee!" yelled the crowd. And when it was realised that hit hsA driven in a run. then the crowd yelleA its approval some mors. "He's just warmtn' up," said the back% ers of the Benny boy. "Now. watch for dat home run aesA time." ^ J
