But if yon brine It '''Bin down l " the present, there can ho but fi-.v arguments. Practically all of the smart fellows will oast lhe!r vnin. icr Mr. William Harold Tc-rry. a southern geiulfiiian oul o[ Mom- phis, Tenu. Big Bill from Mc-mphl?, probably | would rank a few |x>!nts below the i "real Hal Chase in a cliavl show- i ing their relative merits. Ho :iLv> might be a few points shy of tin' great George Sislor, who had his heyday with Ilic Browns .several years ago. But uxiay— well, Si.«I(-r. Gehrlg. Foxx.

Terry has been n Giant regular only since 1821, or since McO raw- decided that Dill co'.ild do n bHtc-r job on first lhan George Kelley. But. Terry had been playing baseball many years then. Bill took \ip baseball as his profession in 1014 in Atlanta, the lown of his birth. During the next three- years he performed in the Southern Association, the Georgia-Alabama League, anil the Texar. League. Then he jumped into free-lance pitching, running loo.*; through the mountains of Tennessee from 1918 until 1921. Remarkable stories-about. Ills pitching lor • backwoods teams vouched Mc- O'raw's cars and the Giant sent n po.-,se into the hills after him. American Asrjcdation baseball . provided Terry with his next adventure. He pitched and played first base for Toledo: he even man- nged the club part of one season. And then he moved to the Polo Grounds, where he became bench warmer, understudy lo George Kelly tmd later, the greatest all- around first sucker in either league. I won't arpue thai Terry drives n baseball as far as First Bnscmnii Foxx or C.ehrig. However, he i-: one 'of the best batters in the gome today.

His fielding average was .994 and Included 50 more chances ami 10 more nutouls than any other National League first bcscrnan accepted. To date in the 1330 campaign he has showed a batting average around the .380 mark. "Memphis Bill" can do truto around first base that wr.uld make your eyes pop out. Agaiiiit the Phils in n recent Polo Grounds contest, he scooped up a wile throw by Llndstrom and stabbed a wicked grounder from a hostili bat— a pair of stunts Dial jolted the customers right out of the! seats. And he does those thing; right' along; Terry not only is n gcod first baseman but' a smart one. •fTerry's fielding cuts off base hits every day we play." remarked Dave Bancroft. McGraw's aid. recently. "He makes Liiids'.roiu. Jackson and Critz look good even when they have an off nay." Bancroft ought to know a little about that; he plugged the shortstop gap for a time this season while Jackson got all swelled up with a ca=r of mumps.
