The Whittemore Small Pry Ball team has something to work for now. The top players and all who trained will be considered when":a", baseball autographed by Babe Ruth will be awarded at the close of the season. The autograph was secured after calling the police in New York, the Public Library, 25 or 30 sport shops, the Yankee Stadium and at least 50 hospitals; and finally persuaded a head nurse that the local Small Fry would never survive the disappointment of not having the promised autograph. Babe Ruth's name is not in the phone book, and his extreme illness made the possibility of finding him almost beyond the power of a Small Fry Sponsor.
