BOX 1352 SPORTS FIRST BUDGET Western Writer Declares that Criti- cisms Are Unjust The criticisms of Ty Cobb that have been, indulged in since he crash- ed into Baker, of the Athletics, at second base in a recent game at De- troit, are wholly without warrant, and they show a keen lack of fairness and sportsmanship on the part of the Philadelphia and Boston critics, who have been the.most severe in their de- nunciation of -this great young player, says a Cincinnati baseball writer. Cobb is no rowdy, on or off the field. He is a clean and decent southerner, high strung and determined, but a gentleman in every sense of the word. He .would no more deliberately try to injure a fellow player than he would lose a game of ball on purpose. "When Cobb is playing ball his one idea is the admirable one of winning that game, and he will strain every point to that purpose. He is a won- derful base runner, quite as much on account of his determination as by Fit-Finish-Style in the BOULEVARD CASTLE BRAND-3 for 50c.

I'm a nervous ond base his sole object is .to get; there. If an opposing player happens to be careless -enough to get in his way, look; out, for Cobb is coming, regardless of the obstacles. But he has not the slightest intention, of crippling any one, and he would be the last one to go out of his way to injure an- opponent. His. great Value as a player depends to a great extent on his indomitable spirit. His whole mind is bent on winning that game of ball which he happens to be en- gaged in at the time. Other players of equal speed are not so valuable as Cobb, because they have not his de- termination. They are more apt to think of themselves and the chance of getting hurt. These are things that never occur to the furious Tyrus when hi is on the lines. He gets there cause he goes at his task with all hia and strength and with no other t but that of victory. if there were more players of his stripe there would be many more .in- teresting games of baseball.

He was mighty clever at that. I'll make him come to me, and when- we meet I'll have at least an even chance." Unlike some fighting men, Ketchel hasn't a knock for anyone. he volunteered, "is a gpodnatuxed sort of a big coon. I al- ways liked him pretty -well.

He's just a great big, and his methods, for Cobb does more than any other one player to make things interesting in the American league. If every club had a player like him there would he eight contenders for the pennant every year. KETCHEL'S OPINION OF SAM LANGFORD educated coon come into a lot of money and a sort of popularity, and he's lost his head a little." "No chance of you losing your head if you whip Johnson, I sug- gested.

I'm the worst dopester of fights in the world, because I never pay any at- tention to any fights except those I'm going to meet. "I've read a lot of stories about your being interested in other things late- ly in San I suggested, hoping to draw Stanley out. "All he said shortly.

I'm often invited to spend a few days at a time at their homes. Na- turally, sporting people haven't the same invitations. All they know is. that I've disappeared. They don't know where I am, and, being of a low order of intelligence, they judge me by themselves. They think I must be off on some sort of a spree, and then they knock. If I would only hang around the tenderloin like the others, they'd never knock. I'd be called a good fellow, I suppose."

Sporting Notes Ralph de Palroa, in his 90-horse power automobile, broke three world records at the State fair track in St- Louis. All the records were for a cir- cular track. In the one mile -race. with Kilpatrick, De Palma lowered his own record, made on the State track last year. He went dis- tance in 50 4-5, the time last year 51 flat. De Palrra lowered the twice during the match race with three mile record afternoon. In the Kilpatrick he made the distance in 2.38. The former record was 2.43. The last mile of the three-mile event he made in 50 4-5, equaling the new record established earlier ia the after- noon. De Palma then went into the 10-mile race, and not cnly broke the world's record for that event, but covered the first three miles in 2.37 4-5 again lowering the record already broken during the afternoon. The new record for the 10-mile event was S.49 3-5. In spite of the charges of profes- Ketchel! says he made a good fight sionalism recently made against hira with Papke.
