Aug. 20.-When the war is over and the time arrives for the reorganization of various ball clubs the Yankees perhaps will undergo numerous ehai�ges. But for the fact that the war has made baseball out of the question for next season Miller Hug-gins, always noted for his trades and deals, would put in a very busy winter. Tlie reorganization  of this par-' licnilar club can bo postponed this winter, but it is certain to come. One player who will not be seen in a Yankee uniform or in any other major league uniform after the close of the current season is John Franklin Baker, the man who made world's series' home runs famous, or gained nation wide fame through these hom-iust as one cares to view it. Baker declares positively that this is his last Reason in professional ball, and, there ore many roasous (or believing that he will stick to his reso lution. Baker now is 33 years of age, and the travels of baseball never did appeal to him. As far back as 1910 he declared that he was going back to his Maryland farm and would do no more ball playing, but a world's series dividend that fall when the Mackmen beat the Cubs, .caused Baker to look upon the game with more favor and he came back to share In three more world's series as a member of the great Mack machine. He severed his relations with the McGil-licuddy forces in 1914 and spent the 1915 season at his bOine in Trappe, .Md., going out oh Saturdays and occasionally on Wednesdays for games with a nearby independent club. $29,000 For Three' Years. In 191G Baker was coaxed back'into professional ball with a contract calling for $29,000 for  period of three seasorfs. That contract expires witli the close of the season now waning, and Baker says he never will sign another. He admits that he has been well treated in baseball, but has tired of the game. He first joined the JMackmeu in 1908, coming from the Tri-Stale league^, and has played with only two major combinations, the Macktnen and the Y'ankees. Baker will be remembered by baseball fans as a slugger extraordinary. His hitting proved the most important factor in the three world's series which the Mackmen won between the seasons of 1910 and 1914. Though not the most graceful fielding third baseman in the game, Connie Mack has gone on record as saying that Baker way the best third baseman in the American league during his stay with the Athletics, barring the seaiion of 1912, when Larry Gardner out played him. A3 this praise was bestowed after Baker had quit Connie's club, the remarks were particularly impressive. Another stropg pblijt about Baker's playing has been his accuracy in throwing. !\!iller Huggins remarked a short time ago that in all his baseball career he hajl seen no player who was so accurate in throwing across the diamond as Bakei-. Pes-seiising a powerful arm be takes more time than most third basemen before lotting the ball got away and that has tended to make his throws sure. Hurt in 1916. Since coming to the- Yankees Baker lias not hit up to the standard of his days as a Alacknian, but tljat was due mainly to a �n�ere accfdeiit at the Polo grounds In 1910, when he crushed into the stand, broke three Tibs und suffered other internal injuries. But ho led the -Y'ankees with the stick in 1917 and throughout the present season. Since Joining the >;lub Baker has made 21 home runs, and a short time ago lie reached the record mark for home rung in the American league. He has been the' best drawing card Qf any Yankee player since the days of Keeler, and the club will miss him at the gale as well as at the plate. Boston, Aug, 20.-Four members of the Boston American League baseball team, leaders in the pennant race, have received permission from their exemption board to tal.?,,; � tcPl'lc stick work.

Througli an othce blunder Xew Y'ork almost lost title to Jim's services, but the National commission awarded the southpaw to tho club that discovered him and lie pitched regularly-for it for two full seasons and part of another.

He came | back to swell society in the fall oC 1913X| with tho Cubs, winning five out of six games before tho season ended. JilmcB Roy Walker was chased ou( ; of the American league iiboiit the I same time Vaughn was, tho big right j bander having a trial under Harry Davis at Cleveland in 1912. Walker lasted only a h,riot time, but the Cleveland club kept a string on him-and gave hjra anotlier chance in 191'>. He then won seven out of alxtcnii games for the Indjans, hut Leo Fohl �couldn't see him and ' Walker was sold to Now Orleans, the Cubs getting title to him in tho fall of 1917, Philip Brooks Douglas, best known as "Sliuffling Phil", had the iron' ball hung on him tho .iamo reason as Vaughn and Walker. "Shuffling JMiil" worked under Jimmy Callahan in Chicago, iiltclied part of three games for the White Sox and then was separated from the Coniiskey payroll. Paul Carter, called "Mr. Nick" by tlio war correspondent!) jvho travel with the Cubs, was with Ihc. Indians bricfiy in 1914. and 1015. Ho won a game for thoni each year, lost 'Ivo in th-j two seasons and spent most of his time ill places whore he was sent to by the Cleveland commanders.

As it is the terrific heat in the ' engine breaks down ordinary oil and forms sediment. Veedol is manufactured under the Faulkner Process, � ne# and excWve scientific method which gives it surprising heat and wear resisting properties. Repeated tests show more than five times as much sediment in the average oil as in Veedol. Sediment means increased | friction, wear and'expcHge. Use Veedol and keep down operate i ing expenses.
