Many a nationally recognized coich owes a good share of his reputation lo an unsung assistant who drills liis forward's in Individual position play and group execution. Wieman doesn't go in for heroics. He is matter-of-fact and impersonal in pre-game talks. "Just go ^ut there and execute your assignments on each play as .though it were the only play in the game." he tells his men before games. "Forget the game as a whole. Concentrate on doing your job.

The late Miller Hugging was responsible tot the Ruth transaction. He was the first to realize tile possibilities of the big hoy's home run bat. C'ra/.y Like a Fox When Ruth clicked, Huggins went completely sca-rcwy. Ruppert explains. He wanted to buy everybody in sight-mid Just about did. Tlie Ynnks paid Harry Fnizec, then oi the Boston Red Sox.- $000.000 for players alone. From Die Hull they took Carl Mays, Herb Pennock Wnitc Hoyt, Joe Dush, Wally Schang, ajid Joe Diigaii. Harry sparrow, the Yankee secretary, died in lazo, Huston ran the org.-iniznllon's business for awhile, bul quickly'discovered that ho was not fitted, for it and that- he didn't have the time. It was France who suggested Ed. G. Barrow. Frazee was seekin- to get out of baseball, and sought a spot for one whom lie considered the most competent of baseball men. so Ed Barrow came lo the Yanks as general manager along with the famous stars he guided at Fenway Park.

So, when Bob Slmwkcy was found unsatisfactory .following the passing of. Hugghis in 1S'13° joe, McCarthy, just fired by the Chicago Cubs, was broiiglil in as field marshal, Barrow was right again. In seven years muter McCarthy, the Yankees have won three world championships and four limes finished second. In Colonel Ruppcrt and Ed. G.
