Lv signing to meet Dave Shade,
legitimate welterweight, at Mil
waukee for a battle in the near
future. Tendler has bad trouble
keeping himself down to evr the
new lightweight poundage of 135
pounds. He has felt, his friend3
say, that even that weifh; weakens
him. Hence his decision to step
into the heavier class.
The welterweight class now pre

lower class. There has be .n a

Secondly, Leonard, if he fights

Tendler months ago he weighed in

a week before the fight and made
the 135 pound mark. But secrecy
surrounded his weighing in the
day of the battle and it is gener

over the 135 mark.
Leonard showed that he hai - j

Britton the match which left a
bad taste in the public's mouth.
So, if Tendler, who deserves an

During the regular playing sea
son while the Yankevj .ere bat
tling to retain the American Lea
gue championship, the praise of
Scott continued.
But now the song is different.
Scott's failure to ccer territory
around short gave the Giants many
easy base hits, these -ame scrib.s
say. His failure to hit weakened
the Yanks' offensive strength.
They doh't stop to explain vh
they did not discover during the
154 games of the regular season
that he couldn't cover ground.
They don't recall that they said
that he was invaluable to the tea. ;
despite his weak hitting. And they
overlooked the fact that Babe Ruth
was more helpless and of less val
ue to the team than Scott.
They are inconsistent, at least.
It looks as though they ..ere sim

up the real weak spot in the team

Babe Ruth's miserable showing
in the recent world's series a du
plicate of his pitiable efforts in
the classic of 1921, will be a bles
sing in disguise if it turns out
that it awoke Ruth to his pree..--ious
situation in baseball.
A six weeks' suspension by Judga
Landis, several shorter suspensions
by Ban Johnson and various dis
ciplinary moves on the part of tha
Yankee club owners during the
past season failed to drive into
Ruth's brain the fact that he was
on the wrong track and rapidly
skidding into baseball oblivion. The
changing sentim.nt of the fans,
who quit cheering and began boo
ing him, also failed to impress him
as being an indication tl .t he was
losing his grip in the ba ball
His rotten showing -rainst th
Giants topped off a rotten year.
He found himself booed and eve i
jeered at every time he walked to
the plate or took to the field in the
fall classic.
Has it finally dawned on the big
boy that he must turn over a new
leaf if he cares to con. -ue in big
league baseball, let alone dra 7 a
huge salary and the adulation of
millions of fans?
