EVERY OPPORTUNITY FOR SPORT IS GIVEN BRITISH SAILOR TO KEEP IN PROPER TRIM DELEHANTY DID NOT -UNDERSTAND BUNTS Lace and Satin Dinner Gown mm a i Couldn't Make Sacrifice Hit as Ordered by Manager. With Runners on First and Second and No One Out, Instead of Advancing Them, He Lands on First Ball Pitched for Home Run. Charles Webb Murphy, who still fans seven days a week, though he is out of baseball, was watching Cactus Cravath of the Phillies hit those long drives of his during practice at the Cubs' park in Chicago recently. "None of them can swat the ball like Delehanty could when he was with the team," said Murphy. "He had some mates who could go too, Flick, Lajoie and others. "I once heard how Billy Earl caught his first game against Delehanty. It seems that Del cracked the first ball, a high one, way on the outside, for a double. Next time up, Earl gave an other signal and Del nailed one low on the inside for a triple. "On Delehanty's third journey to the plate the pitcher threw a wild one that hit in front of Del. The batter caught it as he would if he were playing cricket, and converted it into a single. "Earl was plainly amazed. So when Delehanty appeared for his fourth ef- Although the German high sea fleet will not come out and give the fort, Earl asked, 'Don't you ever wait British fleet a chance which it is so eagerly waiting for, the grand fleet has an immense amount of work to do in maintaining effective sea command. In spite of this every opportunity for port and entertainment is utilized in order to keep the men in trim. This photo, the first of its kind to arrive in this country, shows a boxing exhibition on board a British battleship waiting at its base in instant readiness for action. It is greatly due to the efforts of these sailors and thousands more like them that the German fleet has not dared to come forth and attack our coast.

'No,' he replied, 'Only the poor batters wait for that kind.' "Another time, when Shettsline, now secretary of the Quakers, was manager of the team, an important stage came where runs were badly needed. Philly got runners on first and second before anybody was out. It was then Dele hanty's turn at bat. "Shettsline called Ed to one side and said, 'You lay down a sacrifice bunt now, and I'll have the next fellow try to knock one out and score both men. Delehanty nodded. 'All right,' lie an swered. "Shettsline was surprised when Del ehanty laid on the first ball pitched and slammed it out for a home run. As he rounded third Shettsline called out, 'How was it you didn't bunt?' " 'Oh, I never bunt,' laughed Del. 'I don't even know how. " Unique Method Employed to Prove to Skeptical Officer Necessity of Such Functionary.
