NEW YORK, June 26.
We present herewith the estimates of
a pair of statistical experts, who have
been retained by us at enormous expense
to figure out Just how many home runs
Babe Ruth will make this season, barring
injury, suspension by Ban Johnson, or
legislation deadening the American
league baseball.
Our team of rapid calculators, consists
of A1 Mnnro Elias, the figure hound, and
Jerry, the ex bartender, who became au
expert accountant through years of ex
perience In adding up the tabs of bis
customers without ever giving himself
the worst of It.
Mr. Elias dopes it out that Babe Rnth
will smite approximately fifty four hom
ers, not Including a special world's
series brand. He is inclined to be more
conservative than Jerry because he
claims that figures can't lie and he
doesn't care to be sensational.
Jerry, on the other hand, takes mathe
matical liberties—the same s he did
with his old customers—ftnd fixes the
11*20 Roth crop of home runs at a little
wore than fifty-eight.
To prove that he has arrived at his
conclusions in a legitimate and scientific
manner, Elias fixes the exact number of
Babe’s four-ply belts at 54%. The frac
tion represents the five singles Rube is
expected to make this year. He already
has three of them. .Terry’s dope also
gives the Home Run King a few small
or broken size hits.
We will first take up the statement
of A1 Munro Elias, who employs only
kina' division in his operations.
"Ruth made his nineteenth homer
a week ago last Wednesday.” states the
figger fiend, "and at that time had only
ten more to go before he ties hts own
record. He can do that standing up. Now
for the brain work. Last season Babe
made twenty-nine homers in a season of
twenty-one weeks. This year he made
nineteen in eight weeks. Thus he aver
aged 18-21 homers per week in 11*19 as
against 2% per week this season up to
last week. Everything is higher now.
you know. D'ye get me, Steve, or don't
you ?
"The 1920 season runs approximately
twenty-three weeks, and by multiplying
twenty-three by 2% we can definitely
tlx Ruth's output at 54% home runs
liven If we knock off 4% for wear and
tear, depreclatloi. and overhead charges,
we still have fifty homers left, bnd that
!s ten more than Babe himself modestly
estimates he will collect this season. Do
you follow me, or am I all alone?”
Jerry, the ox-bartender, employs the
tystem of weights, measures and book
keeping employed by prominent retail
ers, and, therefore his charges are higher
than A1 Munro’s. the staple statistician.
“The 1919 schedule was for 140 games.”
calculated Jerry, “the season opening a

“We thus discover that Babe is non
grinding out 2 1-9 home runs per werk
this season, as against 7-9 of a home
run for each week In a corresponding
period last year. Taking Bambino’s
weekly average this year and figuring
on a season of twenty-three weeks, we
arrive at a total of 581-9. The fraction
represents light blows that will be left
over in stock. I don't care wbat Elias
says. I can figure anything out higher
than he can.”
“But there teems to he an error in
your figures,” we protested. “At your
rate of calculation the total should b3

that he is one of the city's coming stars.
Hennessey used a lot ’of head work
yesterday, mixing up his play every min

Most of the points were well played
and the gallery was rather liberal with
applause throughout the match.
In the first set Boyd held a 4 2 lead
before Hennessey fell back on his old
driving style of play and came to the
front for four straight wins.
The score was held even up to the 0
all stage of the second set, then Hen
nessey took Boyd's serve and won bis
own with a series of terrific drives that
completely bewildered his opponent.
Charlie Trask was "right." and. as
was expected, had little trouble In de

When Bob' Martin heard about Burke
and how he had beaten up Big Al Reich
Martin promptly called off his proposed
match with the New Orleans boy.
The two had been offered flattering
terms by Matt Hinkle of Cleveland for
a bout on July 5. Burke had accepted
and Martin also was about to close
when Burke made mincemeat of Reich.
Martin decided that Burke was a good
man to leave alone.
When Martin decided to refuse the
July 5 engagement Burke signed with
Willie Meehan for fifteen rounds to a
decision at New Orleans. After that
Burke Is coming this way in search ot
bouts with some of the near stars.
Burke is a rangy fellow, well over
six feet. He weighs only 168 pounds,
which indicates that he is something of
a freak in build. From all accounts
he has a remarkable left., which he
pumps into •an opponent's face with great
speed and accuracy.

Elimination Events Are in
Progress in Four Cities
Over Country.
The cream of the nation’s athletes
were to match brawn and endurance
in four great Olmplc track and field
tryouts today in widely scattered cities.
Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans
and Psadena, Cal., were the scenes of
these contests to determine eligibles for
the final tryouts for the American Olym
pic team, scheduled for Boston, July
16 and 17.
Paul ICoehring, running under the
colors of the Indianapolis Athletic and
Canoe club, was believed to have an ex
cellent chance of winning the two-mile
run in the Chicago meet.
Two years ago Koebring took first
honors in several of the distance events
on the interallied games card in France
and since being discharged from the
army he has been running for the Canoe
club, winning every event he has started
in and scoring victories over the classi
est distance men in the middle west.
There was also a possibility of the In
dianapolis boy entering the five-mile
grind today.
Never before in the history of Olym
pic competition In this country have there
been so many aspirants for the honor of
representing Uncle Samuel in the classic
Olympiad and never before has interest
run so high.
The stadiums of three famous uni
versities. Franklin field at Philadelphia,
Stagg field at Chicago and Tulane sta
dium at New Orleans, were the scenes
of the eastern, mid-western and southern
tryouts, respectively.
At Pasadena, Tournament park was to
be used.
Every * college and athletic club star
who aspires to compete for Uncle Bam
at Antwerp was carded to get into action
in one of the four great meets.

Men Against Early Trials
Larry Sutton, the Brooklyn scout, gave
seme interesting “dope” for the benefit
of college baseball players while looking
over the Lafayette college team the other
“Freshmen and sophomores,” stated
Sutton, “who are ploying on college
teams and who have major league am
bitions should curb thoughts of profes
sional ball until their senior year. They
should remain at college until they com
plete their course instead of running
away for a tryout, in Xvhieh the ma
jority fall to moke good. Stay in col
lege, where you can learn things of
value in the outside world, and also
learn a great deal of baseball. Then
you will have plenty of time to get
your tryout in the big tent.”
