FOUND PHOENIX AS LIVE AS I TOM "Phoenix proved a surprise to me. I had heard it rumored it was a rather V Saint Joseph's Academy Prescott, Arizona Select Residence and Day School for Girls Accredited to State University DEPARTMENTS High School Commercial Elementary Special Music Course Fall Term Opens Tues day, September Seventh Ctalos"u on Application References Emphatic. dead place in the summer, but I found it is one of the livest cities in the southwest," was the comment Bennle Cohn. proprietor of a notion company of Loa Angeles, said last night after he had visited the majority of mer chants in the city. Cohn based his opinion upon the business he found merchants enjoying here during the hot months. "People here are particular about their haberdashery." he -added. "They want the best and the stores here are prepared to serve them. I cover an extensive territory, embracing Texas, New Mexico, California and Arizona, and nowhere do I find better stocks of goods than are carried right here in Phoenix." Cohn stopped here enroute to the east on a buying trip for the firm he heads. He was so encouraged by con ditions here that- he expects to pay Phoenix another visit when he re turns from New York in October. . 9. -V 1 " N ; - : U, . si ;..v--.-r. f A X GLAPHAM Here's an eye-witne story. Three guesses whose magnetic eyes these are.- "Homric" Babe is keeping one eys on Lanky Bob Msusel, his chief understudy this year, who also hangs out on the famed "Murderers' Row" of the New York Yankees ball club. That's Bob under Bambino's left looker, and the same guess you made before goes for the gent pasted under the other eye. The closeup shows the way 'Babe's eyes appear to every pitcher in the American league this year who tries to spin one up to the plate within reach' of Bambino's flail. . ' t BY DEAN SNYDER Home runs' don't -always break up ball games, my eon. Four-base jams aren't sometimes as effective as a row of base knocks. Neither will bounc ing the ball off the garden wall win a pennant. But the old game of "sock and run" wins the derby every time. In the minds of the fans. There's only one "Murderers' Row" in the world. It is geographically lo cated in. the New York Yankees' bat ting order. Apache Order Chief of the arch "murderers" is the Homeric" George Herman. His near est . understudy is Lanky Bob Meusel. They're the two big slayers of swat. Pipp and Peck come trooping in next, while Bodie, Ward, Pratt, Lewis, Han nah, Ruel and i.uinn are the little "murderer" members of the Apache order. . Already the sum total -of their atro cities is between 90 and the century mark. All former records are now trailing in the dust. ' Crime Precedent The modern major league record was made back in 1913 by the Phils when they popped out 73 circuits for the year. Cravath led this attack with his 19 homer pokes. Gawy averaged around 19 a year in those days. He ticked out 24 in 1915, the memorable year when Philadelphia won its , first and only pennant. The "murdering' Yanks aren't sat isfied with just hanging a shroud over the Phils' record. They hanker for a mark which will give coming genera tions something to shoot at. Growing Thirst Whether Ruppert and Huston have had anything to do with it or not, the Yanks never had a thirst for "murder ing" until the colonels assumed the ownership of the club five years ago. Since then they've been the raw meat athletes. New York has won the home run championship every year, with the exception of 1918. The Ath letics out-homered them in that stanza by the shade of a pair. ; The Giata have led the Nationals for the last three years in waving the high-powered stick. This year the Phils are leading them by a nose. The answer to the. fence-busting tactics of New York clubs is due part ly to the closeness of the rlgit field etands at the Polo Grounds. Most of the home run whacks settle ' in this spot. There's where Bambino has fat tened mostly this year. Home-Run Baker made most of his dents there in his day also. r The Washington . ball park is the sticker for them alL' Even Babe has flivvered at the Capital. He's treated the fans every place else, thoueh, this year. Naturally, the Washington club occupies the same place in the home run championship race as the Athletics generally do in the pennant fuss. Near Suburbs With about 40 more games to play, the famous "Murderers' Row" hope to polish off a mark of 125 four-time beauties. By the time Behemoth gets through they ought to be in the su burbs Or thereabouts. They do say that if Babe ever lets his foot slip his successor will be Big Boy Meusel. Bob's only a kid yet: 23, you know. Right now his smacks carry almost as far as Ruth's.' And as to the Son of Swat, he con tinues to be the real he animal of slug. Murder Will Out For three months he averaged an even dozen per. In July he had an at tack of high fever and caressed 13. He ought to carom a few more over the barriers during the dog days of August, as he's stepping high, wide and hand , "Homeric" Babe is the Idol of the world. He has base-knocked himself into the hall of fame and on to a thrill ing throne as the seeptered ruler of "Murderers Row." He is the perfect timer of the ball and bat. Go ahead and sock 'em Into a pen nant If you can. Murder will out. The whole world is pulling for you to cash. ' HI COTTON T WINS SLUGGING BEE League Standing Won Lost Pet.

IS MOST PERFECT PHYSICAL SPECIMEN IN U. S; Sam Clapham, "The British Lion," who will meet Pete Sauer at Tally's arena next Friday evening, is one of the best known wrestlers in the game today. Clapham has wrestled in every civilized country on the globe and he has met tome of the fcest men in the game. For the last eleven years, with the exception of the time he served with the American army, Clapham has been tramping the world meeting all comers. He won the amateur championship of England and the Lord Lonsdale belt several years ago. After he was dis charged from the American army, he went to England and defended his title against the best the old sod pro duced. Clapham came to this country seven years ago and entered the Rush Med ical school in Chicago. While attend ing school he attracted the attention of the promoters by his wonderful physical development and he was made several attractive offers. Clapham de cided the spotlight paid better money than the x-ray and he abandoned the medical career he had mapped out to fill contracts on the stage. When the United States entered the war, Clapham volunteered for service and was sent to Fort Riley, where he acted as athletic instructor, and he later accompanied the troops to France After the armistice was signed he toured the western front under the auspices of the Red Cross giving ex hibitions for the benefit of the troops remaining in France. Clapham then came back to the states and was matched with Earl Caddock at ' Madison Square Garden for the championship of the world. Caddock threw Clapham in one hour and twenty-eifirht minutes or wrestling in what was reported as the best wrestling contest ever held in New York. Frank Gotch's last public appear ance before his death was made in San Diego with Clapham as his opponent. It took the champion almost two hours tor down the contender. As a perfect specimen of physical development, Clapham has no supe rior. He was declared the most nearly perfect or i.z entries in an ew jtorM. City this summer and was awarded first prize. He opened 23 gymnasiums in Canada for the British government and gave several hundred lectures on physical development under the aus pices of the Canadian government. Jle is also the author of several books on physical culture. Clapham arrived in Phoenix yester day morning to open training quarters for his bout with Sauer. He stated he would try and arrange to give a se ries of physical culture lectures to the American Legion boys during his stay in the city. Clapham is a member of and an enthusiastic booster for the American Legion . Matchmaker Tally stated last night that he had arranged one good wrest ling preliminary and one six-round boxingontest for Friday night. Walter Sinclair, the producing comedian at the Coliseum, and Sher rill Ellis will step six rounds at 145 pounds. Ellis is working out daily with Ira O'Neil and Ira says the boy is in first class condition. Sinclair has battled some of the best in the game and his last six bouts were won by knockouts. He has not been following the boxing game since his arrival in Phoenix, but Walter promises to surprise the fans when he breaks into the local limelight next Friday. . o The State's business should be man aged like any large business concern.
