The other day Phil Harrison, stai West Side middleweight, was just about to finish his training work for the .lay He had worked hard and Was winding up with eight rounds of boxing witli a couple of big fellows.

MATTY TEACHES ROOKIES INSIDE BASEBALL STUFF In discussing the young player who goes ) lo the major leagues Christy Math. ^on. tonnrr star pitcher and now manager of the Cincinnati team, has the following to say: "Several years ago a big league manager, who has since passed out of the big show, brought down a s'orm of criticism on his head by the statement that he did not believe in leaching baseball to the youns players who came up from the minors. � It seems that this remark was prompted by the discussion at the training camp one night of the particular fault of a certain recruit who was getting a tryout. This player, an outfielder. was quite a promising young man. lie cuuhl run and field and hit. but Jic could not run bases. He seemed to bpcome bewildfcred wiien he reached tirst ba.^e. and he could not slide to save his life. 'Of course, a laiilt like that would keep him off the club, no matter if he did have lots of promise in other ways, unless that fault cuuld be corrected.
