NKA Service. Inc. [ S'EW YOHK. Sept. 20.—On June 1. 1932, John Joseph McOraw. who j had managed Die New York Olr.nts j .'jicre July 10, 1C02 —a man who I had-achieved re-cognition as Ihe, fcicate.H leader baseball hud pro- | tUiced—walked iiuo the offlcc.s of' Charles A. Stoneham. president j of the club, und announced thai > \:t was through. "Chuck. I am done as inanapcr of llie Giants." snld McGraw. "1 am done with anything Uml Im.s (0 do with the running of u bull club on Ihe Ik-Id. I nm tlivd, and my doctor told me this morning (hut 7 will have to quit If I wnnt to kccy> my health. 1 suppose 1 p';iy Ihe game too hard. At. any i-'.lo, we've got to net a new manager, and we must nnme him in a hurry. I rould like lo be relieved at once." Mefiratv's Surrirlsr Then? was a series of conferences the next dav. There was .<omc talk 01 giving the post to Dave Bancroft, who bad been running t^ie GianUs under ortler.s from McGraw. who hail been away ill most of tlie spring. Frank Frisch. native of Nev York, former Giunt inul destined (o become pilot of Ihe Cardinals this summer, also wo.s considered. Ficd Ijindstrom. outfielder, who was traded lo the Pirates lust .vcintcr, was -still another candidate. Bui at the close of Ihe dav on June 2 McGraw ended the debate and .sprair: ime of Ihe .surprises of'baseball hLslory. '.''"POM up all you have been lalkiiif; about and give the job to Bill Terry." McOrtiw snld. "Terry is old enough to command , the respect of the men with whom lie has been afsociated on Ihe Giunt-s for .some years. He hasj poise, he Is cnlm. he knows n lot about baseball, he Is u great play- "r hinvelf. and he knows how to handle men." Thf Kmpfror Imparts And so It came about that when the Oiunlts gathered In (heir clubhouse at the Polo Grounds on Friday. June 3. IB32. Ihi-y found I III." bulletin posted: "From this tiny William H. Terry is the manager of (he New York Baseball Club. "Charles A. Stonehain. president.' 1 ' Short, amazing! The Giants .stood around and rend It over and over nraln. Terry was closeted in the office which for seasons and seasons had been McGrmv's private sanctum. Behind that locfce<l door. Terry was cleaning out the . papers which McGraw had accumulated over a long span of cam- pslons. John Joseph McGrnw. for 31 years boss—yes. czar, of the New York Giants—was gone! No farewell by the Little Napoleon going to self exile in a baseball Elba. No valedictory by the old general as he eased himself out of the picture. For years the Ginnts had been McGrnw. and McGrnw had been the Giants. For years, until Babe Ruth came to the Yankees in 1920. McGraw had bee;i New York baseball. Is This a JoVe? At once the strong calcium of national baseball limelight was thrown on William Harold Terry. He had been with the Giants since !92i. but now men began to ask. "Who ts (his bird, ami how come lie'Qualifics to step into McGraw's shoes? Why. it can't be! They don't mean to come out and tell Us Hint Terry can do what Graw could not accomplish! Tills thing is almost a joke." However, here are those Giants, revamped over the winter to suit Terry's notions and 1933 scheme, going Into a world series. Here are those Giants with a glory which had escaped McGraw since 1024. Terry look over a last place team, and finished the 1932 campaign in a tic for sixth p with the St. Louis Cardinals. From half of sixth place to ownership of the pennant and place in the sun Is a gorgeous advance, indeed. Who really is till! Terry person?
