The first basemen of the 1920 con tenders, two of whom will oppose each other In the fall baseball classic of next month, are an odd lot. Jake Daubert, of Ihe Rods, and Wally Plpp. of the Yankees, a pair of aglie left-handers, are, of course, stars at their position. Kd Konetehy, llrooklyn's heavyweight first baseman, is the veteran player of the National league In point of service, and Is having one of his Mutest years. Doo Johnston, of the Indians, was res urrected by Cleveland during tho war, and George Kelly, of the Giant. Is a youngster 'whom It took six years to ar rive. John Collins, of the Chicago White Sox, Is a transplanted outfielder, though he played first base a decat'e ago when he first joined the Comlake clan In 1910. World's series excitement would be a new thrill to four members of the sextet Plpp, Konetehy, Kellv and Jfihnston, while Shnnn Collins never has played first base In balidom's blue rib bon event, the Chleagoan divided the right field post with little Nemo Lei bold In the series of 1917 and 1919, and Kot Into tho games only when left handed pitchers opposed the White Sox. Jake Daubert, therefore. Is the only first baseman among those of the six contending clubs who has had actual world's series experience at first base. He played with the Hrooklyn Dodgers when they were routed by the Red Sox In 1916, and was one of the big cogs In Pat Morsn'a Cincinnati world's cham pions of last year. Hit the Ball Hard. The 1920 batting averages compiled by Al Munm Kllas. show th.it all six first basemen have done Home lively clouting this season. Only 30 point" separate the six men In batting, anil while Plpp has tho lowest average he more than offsets It by his ability as a long-distance slugger. The lean Yan kee first baseman has a ttdy margin in total bases, ami leads his five rivais In doubles, triples and homers. There Is little to choose between the six men In fielding. Kelly and Plpp. Ihe two New Yorkers, are tied with nv ernges of .994; the other four are dead' locked at .991. Ke'.ly, however, has by far the greatest number of total chances 1.698, of which he accepted all but 10. Konetehy. 35 years old on the third of this month, has had an odd career. Two years ago when the Braves let him out. he had fallen to .236 In bat ling and apparently was at the end of his big league rope. Pnklyn saved the player from a drop IntwTIi minors, snd he has more than repaid Kbhets This season It has been Konetchy's hard snd timely hilling that has enanled Hrooklyn to stick up with the contend ers. The big lloheminn is slow of foot, but can hold his own In covering first base with the average. If Hrooklyn gets Into the aeries, Hig F.d's rlenn-up hit ting should be one of the features. Daubert, Konetchy's predecessor In Rrooklyn, Is the same age of tho Bo hemian 35. Though no longer the bat ting chamlpnn of his league, tho Cin cinnati first baseman still can sling 'em. A nervous temperament has pre vented Jake from titllliing ills batting skill In former world's series. Il hit only .176 In 1916 and .241 In the games with the White Sox last fall. In 1916 he made all three nf his hits In one game and went hIMess In the remainder of the series. In 1919 he failed to hit in five games out of the eislit, his seven The next time you buy calomel ask for alotabs The purified and refiner1 calomel tablets that are nausealess, safe and sure.

Is a .100 hitter this season, and really has made ' '"""'liabls comeback since he was called back to the Indians. Johnston is noted for being; a treat spring and early season player, one who shows the wear snd tear of a hot campaign In August and September. Among many experts, he is not regarded as s high-grade flrat baseman, but what he lacks in ability as a player he more spirit m " Up ln rrlt nd (iKht'D Though John Collins played first base In his early days In the American league, the beat that can be said for him Is that he Is an outfielder sta tioned at first base. Its has done bet ter with the position than might have been expected, but If the White 8ox again get Into the series Bhano Collins will be the weak spot In their defense. While Collins hit fairly well in previous world's series .286 In 1917 and .150 in 1919, lie never arose to the big occa sion. In 1917 he made three damaging errors In eight fielding chances. George Kelly, of the Cllants, still is more or less of an enigma. lie can hit like a fool for a week and then fall down completely. But he has a long-distance wallop, and If the series Is played on the Polo grounds. New York, that left field bleacher will al ways be a source of danger to the op posing team. He covers ground and has one of the greatest arms In baseball. Wally I'lpp. of the Yanks, Is a hitter of the hit or miss type. He always swings with all he has, and 29 douhleea. 13 triples and 9 homers are evidence that he often connects. He Is the best run-getter among the first basemen, due to the fact that ho precedes Babe Ruth In the New York butting order. (Copyright, 1920, by Al Ellas.) GIANTS SPLIT TWO. NEW yOTlK. Sept. 17.
