A few days ago Babe Ruth was stationed
at first base for the Boston Red
Sox in the absence of Dick Hoblitzel,
the regular first sacker.
Babe played errorless ball on the
bag, covered fully as much ground as
Hoblitzel can cover and batted for
The next day Babe took his regular
turn in the box, pitched fair ball and
in five trips to the plate made three
doubles, a single and a triple.
The question has arisen in Boston
whether Ruth should not be definitely
transferred to the Initial sack ho the
club can benefit from his batting in a
large percentage of games instead of
only the few he is callod into as a
pitcher or pinch hitter.
The argument in favor of this is j
that Ruth, hitting every day. probably I
would improve his batting and become
one of the greatest swatsmeu of the;
The argument against il is that Ruth '
is capable of winning from 20 to 30 |
games a season and the club cannot;
afford to take him from the bos.
These two argument? are giving i
Manager Ed Barrow a lot of worry
right now.
Thera is one precedent in the league
to go by. When George Staler came
to the Browns three seasons ago ho |
had the earmarks of a wonderful i
This may be a practical joke, but
anyway this is the way the Parkersburg
Sentinel told about it: "Officers
today made a search of the cells in the
county jail, as there was reason to believe
that saws or other articles that
could be used in affecting an escape,
might be secreted somewhere, but so;
far nothing has been located.
"This search was due to the finding j
of a note in a basket. Friends of two j
of the prisoners brought eatables to
the -fail fnr these men nne nf whnm
is in for two months tor selling liquor, j
and another who is there for a graver'
offense. When the boy returned to the
jail later for the basket he picked up
the basket of the other man by mistake.
When this was taken home a
note was found in the bottom, on
which was written, "You will find the
saw in the bottle of milk." The basket
was taken to the home of the rightful
owner and the officers were notified
of the finding of the note, hence the
Given but 24 hours in Which to get
together and reduce their prices on
sugar and flour, the merchants
Princeton, Mercer county, hurriedly
reduced their charges to escape heavy
fines. It was said that Sheriff J. W.
Elliott, food administrator for Mercer
county, warned the merchants through
the Princeton wholesale trrooerv com.
pany, giving them the limited time in
which to correct their charges. It appears
that the county food administrator
had informed himself that the merchants
were charging excessive prices,
as laid down by the government, for
both comomdities.

showed signs of being a wander on the

The Browns were not particularly
loaded with high class pitching that
year and Sisler was used on the slab
in several games . But when Fielder'
Jones took charge of the club he look-,
od Sisler over and decided It would j
be folly to wasic Sister's finding, bat-j
ting and base running ability, regard-1
less of how great a pitcher he might j
be. Sisler was sent to first, where he 1
has since remained.
It was Fielder Jones who recently
declared that Ituth is the g:eaiest of
modern batters. Jones believes Ruth
should be used on first base where his
tremendous clouting will benefit the
this morning started the report that a
large tank was burning and many people
rushed out to the Kingwood pike
to see the sight. Upon imiuiry, however.
it was found that the employee
were burning the oil off the water ai
the dam in the tani; field. In the past
few years the city has :.ren several
tanks burn up, and remembering the
smoke of the previous conflagrations
it. was easy to be'ievo that another of
the large tanks wa; in 'lames. The
oil is burned off the water at the dam
before it can get to the river where
it may do a lot of damage should it
be ignited there.
The best draft atory has just come
to light, says the Charleston Mall.
In one of the northern counties of
the state, as velv'sfl by the chairman ,
of the local draft board to Captain
Breckinridge Jones at his office here
yesterday, a colored man was arrested
for evading the selective draft act,
and after being held in jail a considerable
period was tried and found
guilty, sentenced to five days more in
jail and was sent to the army at once.
All the time, however, the negro
had protested his innocence, declaring
that he had registered regularly last
June at a little town up In Pennsylvania.
The only trouble was that he
coudn't remember the name of the
town. He was in jail nearly four
months, and all that time he was trying
to remember the name of the
| Pennsylvania town where he said he
Iliad registered. But he couldn't remember
it. i

trainment for camp. He was taken

Ruth is undoubtedly a natural biter.
He swings on the ball somewhat
ifter the fashion of Sam Crawford in
Sam's palmiest days.
There 3 probably no batter in either
eague who takes a hardei. cleaner
irive at the ball. An idea of his trenendous
hitting power is seen in his
matting in the first IX games he ap eared
In this year. He was at bat 32
imes and connected 16 times for an
iverage of .500. Of his 16 hits 10 were
or extra bases, including six doubles.

:ime for the train to depart, however,
:he negro shouted excitedly to a member
of the' local board who stood on
ihe platform.
"Say boss, say!" he shouted, "Ah
lone remembered de name of dat
town up in Pennsylvania. It was
N'ewell, Pa., yes, sah, Newell, Pa."
Just to satisfy his curiosity, the
member of the board directed a letter
af inquiry to the Newell board regarding
the negro's claims. He was
surprised at the receipt of a letter
trom the local board at Newell giving
complete information of the colored
man's proper registration , But It was
too late, he was already in the army.
