"HANK" GOWDY IN HIS SOLDIER UNIFORM.
It always seemed to us that the
most spectacular figure ever produced
by a world series or by any other
big sporting event was Lank Hank
Gowdy, the blond backstop of the Bos
ton Braves, who bludgeoned his way
to fame in 1914, writes Damon Run
Unheralded and unsung, Lankus
Hankus went into that series and
ripped it wide open. He was sup
posed to be an addle-pated sort of
fellow behind the bat, an indifferent
catcher and a bum hitter, but for four
stirring days the long Ohioan was a
Solomon squatting in the shade of the
hickories and a Hercules when he
straddled the plate.
An ingenious fellow is Lank Hank
Gowdy, with an ingenious smile and
an ingenious way of thinking. After
the series was all over and we took
to reflection and retrospection it
seemed to us quite natural that he
should have turned out to*be a hero.
Salutation Worth While.
We saw Lank Hank during the last
world series up at the Polo grounds.

WORLD'S SERIES "IRON MAN
Deacon Phillipe Pitched Forty-Four
Innings in Contest Between

of Pittsburgh twirled 44 innings in that
Faber will deserve the tribute that
goes with winning three games in the
series, and takes his place among a
select few who have done this same
thing. Only six other pitchers ever
performed this feat. They are Bill
Dineen of the Red Sox, who won three,
against Pittsburgh in 1903; Phillipe .of
Pittsburgh, who won three from Bos
ton in the same series; Christy Math
ewson, who took three from the Ath
letics, all shutouts, in 1905;*Babe Ad

from Detroit in 1909; Jack Coombs,
who won a trio of decisions over the
Cubs in 1910, and Joe Wood of the
Red Sox, who was victor in three over
the Giants in 1912!
No other pitcher bore quite as heavy
a burden as did Phillipe, back in 1903.
Of the eight games played, Phillipe
started and finished five—the first,
third, fourth, seventh and eighth.

Sensational New York Golfer Do

Driver, of Red Cross Ambulance Tells
of Great War Game for Which
He Has Forsaken Link)
Under Fire Many Times.
Phil Carter, the sensational young
New York golfer, is doing his bit with
the American Red Cross In France,
where he drives an ambulance close to
the firing lines, day after day.
In a recent letter to friends on this
side of the pond Carter told something
of the. great war game for which he
has forsaken the links. He has been
under fire many times, and the night
drives he has been forced to make,
along rough and treacherous roods,
without lights, have convinced him
that war is a terribly serious game.
We have often been within two or
three miles of the front," wrote Car
ter, "and it is impossible to describe
the sensation that comes over one
when he comes within range of the
The roar of the heavy artillery is

sion we hadn't been in camp more
than fifteen minutes when the Ger
mans commenced shelling the whole
countryside. You can hear the re
port when the big guns are fired and
then the whistle of the shell as it
comes screaming overhead. Then fol
lows a thunderous report, and a lot
of earth, a house or whatever the
shell hits is thrown high into the air.
If you can hear the shell whistle you
are all right, but if you can't you
have to watch your step, for it is
very likely to hit close by.
"The night raids of the German air
plane Impressed me as the most treach
erous and dangerous thing I have en
countered, and there is nothing one
can do but crawl into a dug-out and
wait till the raid comes to an end.
Carter also wrote that the ambu
lance drivers get furloughs at inter
vals, which permit them'to rest up as
they see fit. He takes his recreation
on the golf links in Paris, and in this
way is keeping on his game.

Younger Brother of Australian Cham

"Frosty" Darcy, younger brother of

that "Frosty" wants to come to Amer

name of Darcy.
"Frosty," like Les, is a middleweight
of fair ability. He is only eighteen
years of age and inasmuch as he has
two other brothers fighting for the al

the way will be paved for him to leave
