In 1933. .. Buddy Lewis, one of tlie few. products of American Legion tour-' nnmenls to appear in the major, leagues which sponsor them, spent Ux weeks with Ihc GlnnLs In the fall of 19'J3. At. the end of Unit time, Terry expressed the opinion that the lC-yew-o!d stripling 1 couldn't, play bull. j Ixwls needed financial n-sslslancc to enter Wake Forest College hi his native North Carolina, and sought It from the Giants with the understanding that he would jcln them upon Biiuluntlon. The help was not forthcoming, so as bright n ' prospect as Bill Terry over again can hope 16 sec left the Polo Qroumis. Cubs Offered $50,000 for l.c'vls Lewis returned to Qastonta, where he caught the eye of Norman <Kid> EllK-rflcld. The old hificldcr recommended the lull yoiilh with apple checks to his old friend Joe Engel, president of the Chattanooga club -mid one- man scouting system of the Senators. Lewis reported to the 1 Txx>konls In the fall of 1034 and really went lo town last season, when he bat- led .303, mnklng 110 hits. Including 40 doubles, 11 triples, and nine home runs.

Seldom has 1 ' big league director felt so poslllv 'about the success of u' compam lively raw recruit. .' . . • "Lewis Is one .of the uest-looklug youngsters' I've ever seen, as cold na ice, and wllh a lol more power than 'one would suspect was In his rather [vail, appearing frame." reiterates Harris. Lewis Is a surprisingly well polished inflcldcr for one so young In addition to. being i> natural left-handed hitter'Who smacks the ' luiiron a line nnd for distance. Griffith rrtzc llarenl" Himtrr Lewis! now bracketed with Joe DlMagsld ns the No. 1 recruit of the'year, Is Jusl another of Clark Griffith's bargains. Walter Johnson cost the Washington club $400. Joe Judge was tossed into n deal that brought Charley Jamlcson. Griffith look Sam Rice from the Petersburg, Va., club in settlement ot n bad debt ol $300. Cecil Travis was plucked out. of an Augusta baseball school foi $200. The school was conducted by'the same Kid Elberfield who put the finger on Lewis. Bucky Harris cost. Washington S25MO, Osstc Bluege $3000, Goose Goslin $5000, and Stanley Covele- skle..who helped the Nats to tueir 1925 pennant with 22 victories, was acquired as a free agent. But the biggest bargain of all was Joe Cronin, whom Joe Eugel bought In a Kansas City brewery for $7500. Griffith had Crouiii throughout his seven best years, and then sold him to the Boston Red Sox for $250,000 .and Lvn Lnry. • Griffith has been lucky, of course, but there is no gelling a\yay from the fact Hint the Old Fox and his agents know a Buddj Lewis when they see one.
