All-American Girls Professional Ball League spring training includes grooming and etiquette classes - GIRLS' LEAGUE GETS DOWN TO ITS TRAINING...
GIRLS' LEAGUE GETS DOWN TO ITS TRAINING Pulchritude, Etiquette and Things Like That Will Be Developed as Well as Baseball Baseball CHICAGO, May 15. U.R) The All-American All-American All-American girls professional ball league opened its spring training training camp at Peru, 111., today with the arrival of 120 feminine playera, three "personality counsellors,'' and a trunkload of cosmetics, curling curling irons, and etiquette books. The girls will spend 10 days getting getting ready for the opening of the league's second season. While developing developing their muscles, League President Ken Sells hopes also to develop their personalities. That's where the counselors come in. Under the direction of Mrs. Frances McCune, head of Chicago's Ruth Tiffany school, the counselors will teach the players posture and etiquette, conversation graces, how to choose and wear clothes, how to put on their lipstick, how to do their hair, and presumably, how to to take a third strike like a lady. "Every day will be Ladies' Day in this league," Sells explained. During the day the girls will sharpen their batting eyes and perfect perfect their fielding, but when they leave the liniment-saturated liniment-saturated liniment-saturated clubhouse clubhouse their work will be only half done. At night they will develop their poise until they find themselves saying "thank you" to the umpire.
