Percy Haughton, Harvard football
coach, who has become part owner
of the Boston Braves and will be
president, will need to change some
of his ideas, also his manners, to get
along well as a baseball magnate.
Haughton ruled like a czar in Har
vard football affairs and was "up
stage" in his treatment of outsiders.
In baseball he will find there are oth
ers who have something to say about
the conduct of affairs, also that he
will be largely dependent upon out
siders, especially newspaper men, for
the success of his business.
Mike Doolan Demist.
Haughton refused to follow the
lead of college officials in placing
numbers on football players to give
spectators a chance to know who
was who on the field.
It was said that when the Harvard
coach was told the public demanded
that players be numbered he re
marked that he didn't give a rap for
the public.
Haughton could get away with
that don't-give-a-rap business in col
lege football, but he will have to pay
a little attention to the public if he
expects' to make a go of it in base
ball. Newspaper men have found
Haughton hard to approach. It is
even said of him that many times he
even refused to talk with Boston
sport writers, saying that if he talked
with one he would have to talk with,
all of them and surely that would be
a bore.
Men who were in baseball long be
fore Haughton have found that the
game wouldn't have a chance in the
world to live without the free public
ity it gets and that it is wise to be
at least civil in the treatment of
newspaper writers.
Haughton is in charge of a club
Jim Gaffney turned from a tail-end
financial failure into a pennant-winning
financial success. He will be a
big boost to the game if he can be
as successful in the diamond sport as
he was in football.
Abe Attell, former fatherweight
champion, say the "califlower" or
"tin" ears carried by about nine out
of every ten boxers nowadays is a
sign of a change in the style of fight
ing, or rather a change in the style
of not fighting.
"In the old days men stood more
erect and picked off punches with
their hands, jumped away from them
or stepped inside of them," says At
tell. "Now they bore in, head down
or sideways and stop punches with
their beans. A rap on the ear caus
es the blood to coagulate and a
puffed up listener is the result." ,
