Scoreboard System Identifies Only
Players in Action, Whil Bugs
Vant to Knew Recruits Who
Are Sitting cn Eench.
Now comes the baseball fan with a
request that all diamond athletes wear
numbers on the backs of their uni
forms, a la football, so that with the
aid of a scorecard they could be recog
nized. The suggestion was made to
President Veeck of the Cubs by a Cub
rooter who resides in Indiana Harbor,
writes I. E. Sanborn in Chicago Trib
The Cub executive replied that the
electrical scoreboard system of flashing
the numbers of the players as they
came to bat did away with the neces
sity of labeling them by attaching the
numbers to their uniforms ; but the In
diana fan came back with the argu
ment that the scoreboard system Iden
tifies only the players in action, while
the fan wants to know the rest of the
athletes, including the recruits who
are hived In the coop most of the time
except during the preliminary practice
or an emergency.
As to the identity of recruits and
noncombatants, the great majority of
rooters are not interested. Only the
thirty-third degree fan wants to know
the future greats.' The rooters -of less
degree are satisfied to know the stars.
And it would seem like a lowering
of the dignity of players like Babe
Ruth, or Grover Alexander, or Ray
Schalk, or Bill KlUIfer, or Ty Cobb,' or
Eddie Collins, to ask them to wear
numbers on their backs. It might be
all right to label the rookies that way,
Christy Mathewson.
but where would the manager draw
the line between the stars and the
near stars?
One day at the Polo grounds in New
York, when Christy Mathewson was
nearly at the end of his active career,
four men were shown to a box direct
ljT behind the press coop. As they took
their seats Big Six strolled out to warm
up for the game, and one of the quar
tet asked the usher who he was. The
lad looked at him and replied: "Are
you trying to kid me?"
Ihey were not. None of them knew
Mathewson, who for more than ten
years had been a nation-wide figure;
yet it would have been an imposition
on the fclab hero to ask him to wear a
number on his hack for the informa
tion of those four men, who were prob
ably the only ones out of a 20,000
crowd who did rot recognize Big Six
when he left the bench.

Boxing, or pugilism, Is the oldest sport ; it dates back to the ancients.
Homer made the first mention of pugilism in literature In hig Rlad and
scholars conjecture that Homer flourished anywhere from eight to eleven cen
turies B. C.
Virgil also referred to the art of fisticuffs and so on down to present
times. Few great writers have omitted mention of the profession of personal
You might be surprised to know that the grave Dr. Samuel Johnson, "that
inajestik teacher of moral and religious wisdom," gave his Indorsement to
On Sunday, September 19, 1773, while touring the Hebrides, this monu
mental figure in English literature turned to James BoswelL his friend and
biographer and observed:
T am sorry that prize fighting is gone out; every art should be pre
served, and the art of self-defense Is surely important. It is absurd that our
soldiers should have swords, and not be taught the use of them. Prize fight
ing made people accustomed not to be alarmed at seeing their own blood,
or feeling a little pain from a wound."
At the time Doctor Johnson spoke there must have been a lull in prize
fighting in England, but the sport soon rallied, to the gratification of the Lich
field sage.
Lord Byron, the poet, shocked England by fraternizing with a teacher of
' boxing known as Gentleman Jackson.
Today we have our Dempseys, Carpentiers, Leonards, Tendlers, Lynches
and Wildes, all sterling fighters and big money-makers.
Wonder if it is a comfort to them to know that their profession was so
highly regarded by some of the mighty intellects of the past?

Buddy Ensor is another Tod Sloan.
He has all the skill, courage and

with the reins he seems to be. Time

To horsemen who have studied him

a finish that made Snapper Garrison
and Johnny Loftus immortal.
They "batttd" their mounts home.
Ensor's method of finish is entirely
different. He uses the whip when he
deems it necessary, but he is of the
opinion that a clip or two(of the lash
and a strong hand ride produce as
good results. That Is the reason his
finishes are not so spectacular. He
rides with his horse and his move
ments in the saddle are in perfect ac
cord with his mcunt.
He studies the past performances,
watches the morning trials and closely
scrutinizes all of the thoroughbreds for
defects. This helps him a great deal,
for in a race he knows the horses to
fear and those not to fear.
