FIRST BASEMAN FOR BROOKLYN THREATENS TO USURP CHASE'S THRONE Jake- Daubert, the young first, base- I man of the Brooklyn Nationals threat- Jens to dethrone Hal Chase as the king I of first sackcrs. While American j league supporters are loath to class Daubert as the equal of Chase, there !are thousands of fans in the National i circuit that consider ihe Brooklyn boy jas good as the Yankee star. Some ihave gone further and have proclaim- led Daubert the king of guardians of jthe initial station. One of Daubert's [heartiest supporters Is Charlie Dooin, i the manager of (he Phillies. i In Charlie's estimation Chase never {compared with Dauberl. "and" adds I the firery-tcpped lender, "Jake has not: I yet attained his top form." j From the viewpoint of many. Dan- jberc is a harder and more dependable putter in a, pinch than youthful Hal; jiilso Daubert can throw with more j accuracy to second or third base. As a graceful fielder the Daubert adher- jents c-or.code that point to Chase; but they insist. Daubert can go as high jfor a chro'.v and reach out as far trp'm jthe base as Chase ever did.. As to j which has the faster thinking ability, 'is a, mooted'question. Hero of Memorial Day Auto Race at Indianapolis Recommended for Recognition His Heroic Act Indianapolis.
