First Month Of Season Will Prob

Babe Is Underweight.
(By NORMAN E. BROWN.)
Cleveland. O.—What’ll Babe Ruth
do this year?
How does he look as the season
Every scribe and fan who had
a chance to see the Bill Buster tun
ing up for the campaign is asked
these questions just as often as the
There are two factors that should
cause anyone to hesitate in predict
ing the immediate future for Babe.
One is Ruth's physical condition.
The other is the happenings of
the past winter and Ills recent
Babe was 18 pounds below his us
ual spring weight the days I watch
ed him in the Yankee camp at St.
Petersburg, Fla. He looked actually
He had played two or three day’s
golf a day for a couple of weeks be
fore the training season opened in
earnest. This party in an effort to
strengthen his legs.
Asset Or No?
But, as to whether or not the re
duction in weight, also a result of
his labors. Is an asset as the season
opens—with five months of labor
ahead and at Ruth’s age—remains
to be seen. Just how much of the
’’sap” in his muscles and bones has
been drawn out in the effort to
strengthen those pins remains also
to be seen.
For the last two years Ruth's
weight has not been a handicap, not
to the extent that such a drastic
reduction was necessary, if actually
As for Ruth's mental condition, I
do not recall ever having seen the
Babe seek his own presence so often
on the ball field as he did this
spring. I still have in mind's eye the
picture of Ruth sitting alone on the
Yankee dugout at the southern
field, looking actually quite forlorn.
His mind was not on the activities
It is not unlikely that his
thoughts were with the second Mrs.
Ruth, perhaps formulating plans
for his marriage to the former fol
Condition To Count.
One thing, however, seems certain.
That is the realization on Ruth’s
part that his work this year will
govern his future income in base

the vagaries of the game and the
results of his own shortcomings to
realize the relative importance of
It would seem, therefore, that his
success this year rests mainly on
physical condition as he starts the
grind. The first month of play
ought to tell the story.
Texas Rangers Find..

Austin, Texas—The ranks of the
Texas Rangers, once 1,800 strong,
have dwindled to 30 men who yearn
