You're Lucky When the breaks go against you as they do-with all of us at times, don't go around telling people yoii'nj unlucky. Just think of WaHei Johnson and keep your moulh shut Recently Walter's wife died after a short nines. A short time before lhat Walter's oldest sou, Walter jr., broke both legs in an automobile accident. A short time before that Waller hunself was in a wheelchair, suffering trouble with his back. And a short time before that he was in a wheelchair again, suffering from the effects of influenza and an infected foot. Jusl before that he had been sent down to Newark, afler 20 years of Ihe finesl kind of big league pltohlnu for a second division ball learn, and, at Newark was cast in the . role of manager of an indifferent ball team that never could get anywhere. . Old Barney's career 1ms been b2- set by cruel pranks of fortune. For years, the greatest pitcher In the game, he bore his burden unflinchingly,- pitching for a mediocre team. There never was a comphlnt from Ihe Big Train. He went about Ills business with a fighting heart. Bucky Helps Out •'.It was Bucky Harris, alter all. who helped the Big Train to .sam2 measure of satisfaction when Washington managed to yet into a world series in 1924. Some deep thinking by Harrl*. who outlined John J. McGraw in the final game of thai series, earned for Waller the pinnacle he had struggled to reach. Walter had lost his firs! twc starts to the Giants on the toughest kind of breaks, and the toughest kind of baiting competition by none else.than Bill Terry. The other Washington pitchers, however, functioned'beyond expcctalkms. auri each team won three of Ihe firs' six games. It was in the seventh game that Ducky pulled his deal on McGraw. Harris decided to gel Terry oiU of the Gianls' lineup. The other Giant first baseman was Kelly, who smacked left-handers right merrily, but who couldn't hit Walter Johnson with a handful of s!:ot. Gets Terry Out The customers were amazed when Harris announced tiiat Warren Ouden would start the seventh panic. But lhat was only lo have McGraw start Terry, as o'gden was a right- hander. At n crucial ix>int in Ihe game, Bucky rushed Lefty Mogridg to the firing line just before Terry was due to bat. McGraw fell like '. ton of brick, yanked Terry anc : it Kelly bst. Then, with Terry on! of Ihe game. Harris sent the Bis Train into action.
