The Journal Will Begin a
i Wonderful New Feature
Tomorrow Which Every
Boy Should Read.
Tomorrow the Pensacola Journal
will begin a remarkable baseball feat
ure entitled "Play Ball Like th
Stars." Tho series includes stories
end illustrations showing just the way
the big leaguers play the national
game anrf every, boy should study tha
f rticle which tells how to. play tho
position he Is trying for.
The first artiele shows how to lay
cut a diamond, either regulation or
juvenile size, and gives all necessary
information about bases, pitcher's box
and so on.
The next ia on pitching and contains
instructions eoncernbig fast and slow
balls, the inshoot, the out-curve, tho
drop end the spi". -r. The cut shows
Mathewcon and also illustrates the
proper position of the hand in prepar
ing to throw a curve ball and a slow
ball. ,
The article on catching shows Bill
Killifer of the Chicago Cubs in action
and points out the important tasks
for which the catcher is responsible,
explaining the necessity for clear
headwork and a perfect understanding
between catcher and pitcher.
First base ia not the soft snap some
inexperienced players are inclined to
regard it, and the article devoted to
this position indicates plays whereby
a first baseman may prove himself a
clever" player. The cut shows Hal
Unase making- a play that requires
Quick work with head, hands anft fw
There is also a diagram pointing out
the two most advantageous positions
for the first sacker when dealing with
left hand and right" hand batters.
A good outfielder,' illustrated by Tris
Speaker, requires a keen eye, fast legs,
and a strong whip. In this position
much, depends on the player's good
physical condition and his ability to
sprint. There is a careful explanation
of how to handle long Hies and how
to learn to work on a sun field where
it is sometimes impossible to watch
tho ball.
Batting is, of course, illustrated by
Ty Cobb and the youngsters are ad
vised if they would follow in the
footsteps of the envied man they must
keep everlastingly at it until practice
gives them a degree of the firmness
and confidence tLat have brought suc
cess to. him. Choice of bat and posi
tion at the plate are explained but
the point is emphasized that nothing
will bring success except practice.
Base running" is explained as becom
ing a more important part of tho
game with "very season. Not only
is speed required but also good judg
ment. A heady base runner can worry
the opposing- battery into wild -plays
to his own advantage. A paragraph
explains the best method of sliding
bases, and there are some valuable
pointers on stealing bases. The cut
shows Donie Bush.
The article on short stop presents
Everett Scott of" the Boston Americans.'
It explains the advantage of a small
fast man as short' stop, and calls at
tention to the necessity for accurate
fielding of ground balls and fast
throwing, which are acquired only by
practice. , It emphasizes the import
ance of team work between short stop
and second baseman. It warns against i
various misplays and errors in judg
ment. -
The third sacker receives more hard
drives than any other infielder and
the article on third base tells tho
VGlinS'Rtpr W 1"! r q oncrnT. -frk" tVit nnyi.
v...w , -' . -
tion how to learn to get hard ground-
ers and recover the ball quickly in
case of fumbles. Much individual
practice is necessary for the boy who
would be successful in this position;
and it is essential also for the third
baseman to study the habits of batters
so he may judge quickly what .to ex-'
pect, hits or bunts. The cut 'shows
Henry Groh of Cincinnati, , :
The essential requirements of a star
second baseman are given as ""brains,
ability to throw accurately and from
awkward positions, speed enough to
go to both the left and right for
ground balls, and a hustling spirit."
Eddie Collins is pictured aa a star
second baseman famous for using his
gray matter, and each one of the es
sentials is explained in some detail.

to the boys, who are destined to be

How to Save Money
How to, make your money cover the most
ground is the one thing that interests every house
wife, with fuel 50 per cent higher than it ever has
been, it is a question not only of economy but con
venience, if you can cook in a cool kitchen, use
fuel only when needed, no waste, because you turn
gas on when, you need it, and turn it off when
through, thereby eliminating unnecessary waste.
Gas will do this and more.
If you are not already using gas telephone

cost to install gas in your rrouse.
