Tyras Raymond Cobb -will begin his fourteenth year as a major league ballplayer in April. He is now in his thirty first year. For many years he has reigned supreme as the greatest player in baseball. For years he has been the super-ballplayer. He has had so serious rivals in his many fields of endeavor. Now and then some star has come along and chal! Ienged him. hut in the end Ty has i always emerged at tne top. r.ven when Trls Speaker took the hatting lead from him. he remained ahead In so many other lines that his supremacy was not questioned. But the time has come to seriously contemplate the day when Cobb can no longer outdistance all his teammates. The super-star has not yet begun to fade but it has passed the meridian and must gradually grow dimmer. Will there be another super-ballplayer to step into Cobb's shoes as the idol and wonder of all ball fans ? Before going into this let's analyze [ the .qualities a super-ballplayer must' possess. He must be young. He must have baseball brains, and be a lightning quick thinker. He must possess a great throwing arm and must be fast on his feet. - He must have an accurate batting eye. But he must have more .than this. He must have the ambition to push cousin, Mrs. A. P. Harr, in State street. Guests of Rev. and Mrs. J. E. Wells. ' Mr. and Airs. Howard B. Atha, of' Washington, D.

He must have the tenaciousness which will not admit defeat in. spite of obstacles. He must have self-confidence enough to know he is the greatest ballplayer in the world without being egotistical about it. There is one young ballplayer who has most of these requirements and is rapidly developing others. George Sisler, pitcher, first baseman. outfielder, baserunner. .350 batter, is the future super-ballplayer. If he retains his ambition and if he gdt more fire into his play. Cobb Is the most dangerous uaserunner In baseball, not because he is the speediest runner, but because he has the determination to steal bases. Cobb is the greatest hitter in baseball not because he is the greatest natural hitter, nor because he has the best batting eye, but because he uses brains and determination with Ms natural and-'physical assets. eGorge Sisler has everything Cobb has physically. He is a better fielder than Cobb. He has not yet developed the determination and fire that has made Cobb the most wonderful of all ballplayers. Perhaps he will never develop it to the extent Ty has. But watch Sisler. He is on Cobb's trail as a batter, as a ba3erunner. as a collector of extra base hits. He's the next super-ball player if he wants to be; if be cares to work as Cobb has worked to get where he Is. present Were Margaret Sayers, Carlos and Clifton Travis.

South Side Park will Hkoly be thc\ scene of many more interesting ath-1 letic events this summer. Because of ; the construction of the large factory! by the Interwoven Mills Company,' which was to have begun' enwly this' spring, it was thought that the big i W. & J.-W. V. U. football game played here last fall would be the final ath-1 letic eTent to he played at South Side. | There has been quite a bit of delay 1 in the construction of the factory and from prospects now it is very proba- j ble that South Side Park will be open i the entire summer^for any baseball; and track events that might be sched-: uled. As yet the Interwoven Company I has taken no steps whatever toward ' the actual construction of their fac-! tory. Evpn after the company has be-1 gun the construction of tho building } it will be some time before it will j interfere witb games that might be plavsd on the mam part of the field. The big W. V. TJ.-W. & J. football game for nest fall is scheduled for :! Fairmont. According to authorities : I there is certain to be an athlectic ; j field somewhere in Fairmont for the : j big game, should the construction of j j the Interwoven building at South Side | interfere writ the game, a field in e some other part of the town will be i provided. It is believed, however th~t the big 19IS football game will take place at South Side Park. 9 9 Advisors Named For Explosives Chief E. M. Gilkeson.
