WIRE W ©t1»?-~ »Wi-- A few weeks ago when Ty Cobb was trying to break his own record of hitting safely in 40 consecutive games, the eyes of baseball were upon him. A few days ago, a National league player, not generally credited with be ing a great hitter, performed a batting feat, which for him wa3 as great as Cobb's hitting in 35 consecutive .games. The player was Heine Groh of the Reds, who batted safely in 23 consecu tive games before being stopp'ed in the last game of a doubleheader against Boston. The hitting was the more remarkable as most of it was accomplished during the Iledjj' slump which volplaned them from second in to founth place.

There are some who would rank Weaver, Gardner," Baker and Zimmer man out ahead of him, but if they are the margin is .slight. This year Groh has been batting right around .300. He was the first National league player to make loO hits and his base stealing average does not rank much behind that of the best pilferers in the league. As a fielder th^re are few who rank ahead of Groh at the hot corner. Heine-may not be as spectacular as some other big league third basemen, but he gets the results which Win ball games. SCARCE AS LIBERTY BONDS IN BERLIN Jj htAL7ER UW/KSQ/t PITCHERS WHO HIT THE BALL HARD. Pitchers who can hit nre as scarce as liberty bonds in Berlin. When a team has a llinger in the game who Is reliable In making a base lilt or even makinj a sacrifice fly, It has an ex treme^ valunble performer, writes Jimmy Isanlmger, the Philadelphia baseball expert. Take two teams of about the same .strength, with the rival pitchers of about equal ability. One of the pitch ers, however, can hit while the other curver Is a joke at the bat. If the two teams are'going at their normal gait, It Is a safe wager that the aggregation with nine hitters in the line-up Is going to win the game. Alexander the Great of the Phils, Babe Ruth of the Red Sox, Walter Johnson of Washington, and Ray Cald well of the Yankees, are not only mighty htfrlers of the sphere, but they enn hit the ball hard. It is always a hand day's work for a pitching tolling in a game, when the opposing flinger is no rally gummer at bat. It means that he Is no soft spot for him In the battle. He must go at high pressure all the time. If the competing pitcher Is one of those helpless Individuals whose ef forts in an offensive way are laugh able, it makes it easier fof the other slinger. If hard pressed, he can walk the catcher purposely and feel fairly certain that he Can 'fan the pitcher, Ths Woman Ha*er. John, age flye, has many times dis played remarkable traces of matured wisdom in more than one matter. The other day he stopped at the home of his aunt. She called for him to "come on in." John stepped into the parlor, but behold, It was filled with woman guests—a suffrage tea. Wohu surveyed the room for a minute, jind then, with a long sigh, he turned to the door. who Is next at bat, or make him hit VP* to double play. How many rallies have you seen spoiled by fllngers who are as helpless as a canary bird in a gamecock'fight when he is asked to bat? Alexander the Great'Is good for 25 triumphs or more eaoii season with the Phils, btat if Alexander couldn't bat, his wins would not be quite so large as they are. Next to Gabby Cravath, Alexander Is probably the surest hitter on the Phil team In a pinch. No batsman wastes his hits less than Alexander. If you dissect his record you will find thnt his bat has a great deal to do with his own victories. Last season he won a number of 1 to 0 and 2 to 1 tilts, in which he batted home the win* ning run. 1 This season, he has been a menace to his opponents with the bat as well as with tye aria. When Alexander th# Great goes to the tee, Pat Moran al ways yells to his opponents:, "Well, we have nine hitters In there today!" This is a warnlag that has a psychological effect on the other pitcher, particularly when he is a cipher with the bat. A team will welcome a good pitcher even If he cannot be expected to help In the attack, but when he can hit ns well as pitch, then that club has a jewel Indeed. Word to the Wise. A little girl was just recovering from an attack of scarlet feverand the first day she was able to sit up she said: "Mamma, I picss I'll ask papa to buy me a baby carriage for my dollies." Her brother, aged live, overhearing the remark, exclaimed: "Well, you'd bet ter strike him for it right away, for if you wait till you get well you may not get it"
