fi-ff ANECDOTES
-Billy lvAns
In the fall of 190 the world's series games were shown in St. <
Louis in moving pictures and Harry Howell lectured before the •
curtain. * (
No player was more prominent than Mordecal Brown. He out- ■
guessed Detroit time and again and he afforded Howell a chance
to talk. ■ '
Howell told how Brown threw his baffling curves and voiced the
opinion that the Cub was one of the greatest '
pitchers that ever lived. "What makes his work '
more remarkable," he said, "is the fact that when '
a boy he lost two fingers of his pitching hand." '
When Howell was making his exit, a husky I
voice demanded: ,
"Why don't yiu get wise, Howell, and chop
off a couple of fingers?"
* 1
For years the cry was: "More hitting." It J
came every winter, but there is no such sentiment
now. Last spring the magnates apparently an
swered the cry by introducing a livelier ball.
The difference between the close game and
old slugfest was never better illustrated than in
the world's series. It Is hard to imagine more i
thrilling contests thaa the opening 2 to I game,
the second 3 to 1. decided by flakpr'u hnn» run- i
the third, 3 to 2, which went 11 innings; the fourth, with its 4 to t
2 score, and the fifth that ended 4 to 3 after 10 Innings. t
In contrast was the last game, with Its 13 to 2 score. Quaker ]
fans liked the game, as the Athletics were hitting, but it was a sad
exhibition of baseball. .

[How to Bq&j The rw&r Points':
(In this, the third article by
Abe Attell, he points out the mis
takes many young boxers make
and enlarges upon the value of
feinting as un asset in the art of
self-defense. Also ho toll* plain
ly the difference between the
boxer and prize fighter.Editor.)
BY ABE ATTEIiI/ {
Featherweight Champion.
Never waste a blow — make
every one count.
Many boxers fall because they
swing —because they don't
use judgment. They start a blow
when they know the man Isn't in
range. The useless swing uses up
much energy and throws them off
their balance, giving a chance to
shoot in a solid punch.
When you punch, put your
weight behind —but don't pift
all your weight back of a blow
until you have learned to gauge
distance, because If you do and
miss, you'll Swing around like a
top.
Take advantage of every open-
Ing. Don't play a favorite spot.
Don't pass up a chance to deliver
a head punch simply because you
want to land a body blow.
Ring generals, of course find
the weakness of their opponent
and hammer him there whenever
they get a chance. Bnt in boxing
yon are working for points—not
trying to batter a man to pieces
and finally deliver a knockout.
I want to explain feinting,
which Is perhaps the finest bit of
ring work from the spectators'
viewpoint and also an art most
necessary to every boxer.
Feinting means to make your
opponent believe you are going to
hit him in one place, thus drawl-rip;
him of his guard, leaving an
opening into which you can shoot
the real punch that you plan. To
do this you must be quick. Feint
ing comes hard at first, but don't
be discouraged. It'll come nat
ural after a time and It's a big
asset.

INCHES, according to THE
length OF YOUR LEGS, MAKE

have a chance to hit him when ha

To be a boxer you must be
quick, moving with the speed of,,
a piston rod. Never place your

ponent can get a good smash at
you. Keep moving—-circle around,

remember, you are in the ring for
