Escapes From
Strong Box in
Half Minute
Herbert Brooks' escape from a
small steel trunk on the stage of
the Pantages theater proved one
of the deepest mysteries for yes
terday's audience at the Pantages
that has been seen In Tacoma for
many a day. The magician al
lowed himself to be placed in a
small steel box, which was tied up
In a canvas sack. Hs proved that
he was still Inside by poking his
fingers, and playing cards,
through a hole in the sack. A
small velvet cabinet was placed
about the box, and in less than 30
seconds Brooks was free.

"Tho only thing that prevents
George Sisler from, being as great
a ball player as Ty Cobb is lack
of aggressiveness and self-confi-
I denee."
This statement is attributed to
i Hughie Jennings, manager of the
Detroit Tigers since 1907, the
year after Cobb broke Into the
league, and the man who has a
better knowledge of the "Peach"
than any other man In baseball.
All of which is a preface to
the prediction that there will
never be another Cobb, a pre
diction I'ii-ctl on the retcord
of great stars who have fal
len short of Cobb's remark-
able |mi i»»i -malices.
Sisler is one of the great fig
ures In baseball. He Is particu
larly valuable to his club on ac
count of his ability to pitch, play
first or third base or the outfield,
combined with which he is a great
hitter, a lightning base stealer
and an all-round brainy ball
But he falls short of Cobb,
Jennings says, because of his
lack of aggressiveness an«l
self-confidence, or mayli** the
"fire" which has made it p»>s
slble for Cobb to burn up the
league for 10 years.
Gobli is always doing something
surprising. It is not his speed so
much as his daring antl reckless
ness which makes It possible of
him to score from second on a
bunt or go from first to third on
an Infield out.
His absolute disregard for his
opponents shocks them so they fall
to get him when they would have
easily stopped a speedier man,
