Here he is, six feet, font inches of him, with a wide grin splitting his face. His eyes aro us blue as fountain pen ink, his skin brown, his brows and lashes long. His voice is deep, almost as low as Babe Ruth's. He doesn't look or act like ft School boy as he talks, rubbing his fingers over his chin, trying to remember names and dates and other answers to what reporters usually ask. lie has noise. Nobody's chump, this' fe)l6w. lie's 22 but talks !md nets like a Veteran, like Carl Hubbell. or Mel Harder, for instance. His first nickname was Newsboy Rowe. One duy he was pitching for a church team, the Methodists against the Baptists. He was just a kid and when the Baptist cleanup hitler Come to the bat. a fan yelled "Don't let that school boy strike you out." , The schoolboy did and from that duy ho had a new nickname. His folks are English. His father used to be on acrialist for a circus. Now the old man's crippled. School- hoy supports him, a younger brother and a married sister; He talks like an Arkansas farmer. He used to sell papers in El Dorado. He was given !50 papers each dny for his services as pitcher for Ihe newspaper team. Actually, of course, that profession- alized him. "Got shut of-them at five cents a copy to the oil field workers during the oil boom," he says. "I could always get shut of my papers easy. I was a salesman." A Remarkable Athlete He grins as he tells you of his early struggles and the gleam of a gold capped tooth in the front of his mouth catches your eye. Hi:; teeth are all strong and While excepl that one which was chipped in a football game. He has an incredible athletic record. He is the ideal eugenists would select. He is the lad who would wi the purple ribbon as the healthies boy at the county fair grounds. He was all-state football halfback all-state basket ball center, a one-man track (cam specializing in sprints anc weight event; state champion higl school golfer and for two years h< fought as an amateur light heavy weight, always avoiding a knockou and winning two decisions for every one he lost. The University of Southern California tried to get him. So did Centenary College. A Detroit scout named Eddie Goosetree, who could talk crops and snap his galluses with the farmers, signed him up. "Eddie wrote out the contract on the back of the hook and ladder truck in the El Dorado fire house,"- says Schoolboy. He likes Eddie. You've got to like a guy who brings you out of the tall timber into the headlines. Rowe smokes cigarettes. He hunts. He fishes. He does all right, with the girls. Nothing sporty, you understand, but he's no dope. He's got a fiancee named Edna Skinner in the home town. He writes her once awuck. Ho wears an El Dorado High School class ring she gave him. He also wears a diamond ring his mother gave him. Both on his left hand. A Slicker for Spinach He eats a lot of spinach, more than Oscar Melillo of the Browns. He cats a lot of steaks, too. He thinks he doesn't cat right because sometimes his stomach nerves get jumpy. Very often he gets nauseated in the middle of a tough ball game. Then he e.x- cnws himself and goes into ilv clu,». out. Afterward he is all right. Bobby Jones used to be like that in touch BOlf matches. It's not a sign tlmi you lire yellow or anything, ho says, it's just nerves and may be a wroni? diet He never crabs when Rogcll or Owen or aehrlhgor hoots one. "Pirpo Marljcrry (old me never to get the swelled head and believe me 1 never will," he.says. "I sirfn all th rtiltoirfaphs ashed f&r and am nice a I know how to be to fans, newspaper men nnd autogrnph hunters alike, know how unpopular Bill Terry 1 and other fellows around the league who have hurt themselves, figure ii my business you got lo be ;| diplomat.' He pitches over Ihe top' now. Tha means he has a sweeping overheat delivery. He Used lo have a cros. fire, n side arm and knuckle ball bu Mickey Cochrane made him stop tha He lakes a giant stride and the batter has difficulty following the ball which seems to fly directly from in front of the mnn. With his strike and his gorilla-like arms, he releases the ball nearer the plate than any other pitcher .In the league. He has magnificent Control and has always had it. Gomez and Bridges and Grove, you will remember, were wilder than hoot owls at first. He has a sharp breaking curve, so sharp that he loses a lot of strike outs by fooling even the umpire. He has a slow ball that comes up quivering like a butterfly. When he pitches he is high, then loW; fast, then slow, in, then out. He drives the batters crazy. The men Who have hit the longest smacks off him are Ruth and Foxx, "When they tee off on me it's 'Oh, Susannah-with- n-banjo-on-iny knee," he admits. Facors Coehrnnc Ho won his first big league game shutting out Chicago, 3 to 0. Ho ulso Won his first adult professional game, with Beaumont, beating Fort Worth, then leader of the Texas League. He likes to have Cochrane catch him instead of HayWorth. Cochrane told him that in the recent Yankee game when he shut them out 2 to 0, he never once threw a wrong ball. Instinctively he throws out the book to each batter. In other words, he knows every weakness of every batter in the league and has the control and the memory to pitch to that weakness. Occasionally these men will hit but percentages are with him. Ho is a .300 batter and thinks he'cf rather be an outfielder like Ruth. He- can run like a deer, field and throw strikes from the fences. He doesn't read a book from one end of the year to another, yet his early athletic struggles have given him a maturity of rnind. He always felt he was gong-to be n great pitcher. "Even when I was a kid I wore a hick sweater and never pitched without a sweat shirt," he recalls. "After he sand lot games I would give myself a rubbing down with wintergreen inimont and my girl used to com- 3lain that I smelled h'ke a barber hop." He confessed he dreams' of himself s a' big hero. Radio, huge crowds, >ovie cameras. His pleasure is think- ing nf (ho scenes bade in the home town, the gang gathered nround the radio in (hf corner (:i,'i,r ::lote and (he local file station anrl ido Ijulli-tiim (hoy comt'fmieK |,;j;,to in flu. p|;,f f . [<tas; windows of the local newspaper. Every lime he wins a gaine.hu visualizes the pleasure it. give.: his kiufolks and his «ir).
