"Schoolboy" Rowc Pitches Way Into Baseball's Hall of Fame With Sixteen Consecutive Victories, Howe Now Holds Joint American League Record Along With Wai- ' ter Johnson, Lefty Grove and Joe Wood WASHINGTON. - Meet Schoolboy Rowc. Hero lu> six fret, four inches of him, with a wide ijrln splitting his face. His eyes are- as blue ns fountain pen ink, his skin brown, bis brows and lashes long. His voice is deej), almost as low us Babe Ruth's, He doesn't look or oct like a school boy n.s he- talks, rubbing his fingers over bin chin, trying to remember names and dates and other answers to what reporters usually ask. He has poise. Nobody's cburnp, this fellow, lie's 22 but talks and acts like n veteran, like Carl Hubbell, or Mel Harder, for instance. His first nickname was Newsboy Rowe. Omr duy he was pitching fo) a church team, the- Methodists agnins -.; Baptists. He was just a kid anc when Ihe Baplisl cleanup bitter cume to the bat, a fan yelled "Don't let that school boy strike you out." The tchoolboy t did and from that day he liad a new nickname. His folks arc English. His father se-d in be an iiorialist for a circus. Vow the old man's crippled. Schoolboy supports him, a younger brothel md a married sister. He talks like in Arkansas farmer. He used to sell inpcrs in El Dorado. He was given 50 papers each day for his services pitcher for the newspaper team. Actually, of course, thai profcssion- dized him. "Got shut of them at five cents a copy to the- oil field workers during he oil boom," be says. "I could al- vuys get shut of my papers easy. I vas a salesman." A Remarkable Athlete He grins as he tells you of his early Iruggles and the gleam of a gold appod tooth in the front of bis mouth •atehes your (.-ye. Hi.s teeth are all troug and while except that one vhie.li was chipped in a football game. He- has an incredible athletic rec- ird. He is the ideal eugenists would iclecl. He is Ibe lad who would win he purple- ribbon as the healthiest ioy at the comity fair grounds. He was all-stale foolball halfback, 11-slale basket ball center, a one-man rack team specializing in sprints and vcight event; stale champion high chool golfer and for two years he ought as an amateur light heavy- vc-ight, always avoiding a knockout nd winning two decisions for every 'lie- he lost. The University of Southern Califor- lia tried to get him. So did Centen- ry College. A Detroit scout named Iddie Goosetree, who could talk crops nd snap his galluses with the farm- rs, signed him up. "Eddie wrote out the contract on the lack of Ihe hook and ladder 'truck n the El Dorado fire house," • says Schoolboy. He likes Eddie. You've ?ot lo like a guy who brings you out jf the tall timber into the headlines. Rowe- smokes cigaretles. Ho hunls. ie fishes. He docs all righl, with the iris. Nothing sporty, you under- land, but he's no dope. He's got a fiancee named Edna 'kinncr in the- home town. He writes or once awcek. He wears an El Do- ado High School class ring she gave im. He also wears a diamond ring is mother gave him. Both on his eft hand. A Sucker for Spinach Ho oats a lot of spinach, more than Oscar Melillo of the Browns. He cats ot^ of steaks, too. He thinks he doesn't eat right because sometimes hi.s stomach nerves get jumpy. Very often he gets nauseated in the middle of a tough ball game. Then he ex- cuses himself and goos into the dugout. Afterward he Is all ritfht. Bobby Jones used to be like that in touch golf matches. It's not a sipn that yod lire yollow or anything, he says, it's jilRt nerves and may be n wrong diet. He.never crabs when Rogcll or Owen or Gehringor boots one. "Pirpo Mnrjjerry tohl me never lo get the swelled head and believe me, 1 never will," he says. "I -sign all the autographs asked for and arn nice n-j I know how to be to fans, newspapermen and autograph hunters alike. 1 know how unpopular Bill Terry is and other fellows around the league who have hurt themselves, figure in my business you got to be a diplomat.' He pilches over the top now. Thai means he has a sweeping overhear delivery. He used to have a crost fire, a side arm and knuckle ball but Mickey Cochranc made him stop that He takes a giant stride and the batlci has difficulty following the bull which seems to fly directly from in front ol the man. 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. Gome? 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 come? up quivering like a butterfly. When he pilches he is high, then low; fast, Ihen slow, in, then out. He drives the bailers 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- a-banjo-on-my knee," he admits. Fncors Coclirunc He won his first big league game shutting out Chicago, 3 to 0. He also won his first adult professional game, with Beaumont, beating Fort Worth, then leader of the Texas League. He- likes to have Cochrano catch him instead of Hayworth. Cochranc told him thai in Ihe rccenl 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 lo that weakness. Occasionally these men will hit but percentages are with him. He is a .300 batter and thinks he'd 'ather bo an outfielder like Ruth. He can run.like a deer, field and throw strikes from the fences. He doesn't ead a book from one end of the year o another, yet his early athletic struggles have given him a maturity of mind. He always felt he was. gong to be a 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. im'ment and my girl used to com)lain that I smelled like a barber shop." He confessed he dreams' of himself is a big hero. Radio, huge crowds, movie cameras.
