Georgia Sporlwrilers Rave About
Hitting Young Fool From

Back in May when Cline Owens
j Lee was leading the Shelby high
j school team to a state champion
j ship by his heavy hitting and spec
1 tacular fielding the report got out
I that league scouts were on his
trail. Somebody suggested to the
j Shelby high captain, a semi-bash
ful, grinning youngster, that his
, fielding might go in league circles
but that perhaps league pitching
would be a bit fast for him.
“Shucks! They're just pitchers,
j too.” he answered. "I believe I
! can hit some of 'em if they put em
over, don't care who's pitching.”
And down in Georgia, the state of
beautiful girls, Tv Cobb, and Bobby
! Jones, the youngster is showing the
fans that he can do just that.

(Lee signing up said: “He has a
batting average back in the Nort i
^Carolina high schools of .530. That's
hitting, and any player who can
hit that well for just one game
down here will be going some."
i And what did young Mr. Lee do
for them? He hit a mere .750 his

nal game of the Pensacol scries, 7 to
“With manager Ko’nlbccker on
third and Littlejohn on second the
aforementioned Cline Owen Leo
made his first hit in professional
baseball, scoring his manager... The
Mr. Lee, referred to in paragraph
one, did doughty deeds for the
Kohlbeckers, deeds, which if con
tinued, will enable the young fel
low to make enough money to pay
off the mortgage, if any, on the
dear old homestead up in Shelby,
N. C. Cline Owens played second
base and batted second in the Fox
lineup, but he was second to nobodv
either at bat or afield. In his first
trip to the plate he hit a hard fly
into center which Tangeman potk
eted. In the second he came up
with Kohlbecker on third and Lit
tlejohn on second. In this situa
tion he produced a hard-boundin';
grounder through the box which
bounded cheerily into center lor a
clean hit . . . In the fifth he hit a
slow hopper to short and hastened
to first so fast that Viau's hurried
throw pulled Abrams off the sack.
Herman almost immediately tried
to pick him off first and did get
ball to Abrams in time, but Cline
Owens slid neatly around the first
baseman to safety. The slide was
unnecessary as the umpire declared
a balk against the pitcher and Lee
walked down to second and trot
ted home on Stuart's smack to left
In the eighth th.e Carolinian hit
another teaser toward Viau, and I
beat it out with great ease The
Flier shortstopper, a sweet, ball
player by the way, wasn't able to
scoop up the ball as dashed in
on it, but if he had his throw
would have been much too tardy
to head off the flying lee . . . In the
field the newcomer handled eleven
chances, four putouts and seven as
sists, without the remotest sembl
ance of an error. Three of the put
outs were on fly balls, none of them
exceptionally difficult, though he
was forced to go back for a couple
of them and did it well. He cover
ed first nicely on Herman's sacri
fice bunt and took Littlejohn's toss.
The assists were for the most part
chances which a good second base
man will always handle, but one of
them was about as fine a piece of
fielding as has been turned in hero
for some time. Case smacked a
hard grounder directly at Lee for
what at first appeared to be only
another chance. But when the tall
hit for Its last bounce, it shot high
into the air with the craziest sort
of hop. bounding for the outfield.
Mr. Lee, as nonchalantly as you
please, straightened up, leaped
high and speared the sphere with
his gloved hand. The play showed
a quick eye and real baseball in
stinct, for there wasn’t time to
think what to do.

“Much space has been devoted to
the doings of young Lee. but the
aforesaid doings along with Little
john's pitching were the highlights
of the afternoon. . . Then, too. It
may be the last chance to rave
over the deeds of our new player,
for one ball game doesn't mak* a
star by any means. But whatever
happens in the future, Saturday was
Mr. Lee's day and he made the most
of it.'’
Good Naval News.
The Nation.
Remarkably good news comes from
London in regard to the new inter
national safety code just signed
by the delegates of 18 maritime h?,
tions who have been attending the
Conference on the Safety of Lite
at Sea. Unlike other international
conferences this one has been har
monious from the beginning, de
spite great technical difficulties, and
the result is a remarkable advance
along various lines. Thus, every ship
above 2,000 tons must hereafter
carry a wireless outfit and a com
petent operator, and it is to be in
the hands of each separate govern
ment to extend this rule to ships of
1,600 tons. All the direct dangtis
of navigation will hereafter have to
be communicated by each ship to
all concerned, notably weather re
ports, and the signing nations agree
to cooperate in collecting meteoro
logical information systematically.
The ice patrol is to be canoed on
as heretofore under the direction of
the United States. Important rules
have been made as to ships' lights
and signals, especially new fog sig
nals. Direction-finding apparatus is
made compulsory on all passengerr
ships of 5,000 tons or more, and
there is a new status for cargo
boats which also carry from 12 to tO
passengers. The lessons of the Ves
tris disaster have been heeded in
the regulations in regard to doo's
and bulkheads, piping arrangements,
etc. Finally every ship hereafter
carry life-boat space for every pass

to the sun a more transparent and
