Some years *ftgo John McOraw cliaracterivid Terry as the greatest straightaway hitter the game, had seen, and that Impression has not undergone 'any change. Bill stands G feet 1 inch In his socks, and scales at 200 pounds. As lie keeps busy all winter—in recent years lie has become a violent off- season golf addict—he does not pick up any weight. Spring train- Ing does not mean the, melting of 15 pounds of excess weight. And with that favorable circumstance Terry is uble to go season alter season with no diminution of skill. When, OH Friday, June 3. 1932, Ihe New York club announced that Terry had been appointed John Mc- CHaw's successor, there was great surprise. It was believed that Terry lacked that dynamic quality which makes for leadership'. Memphis Bill never had' risen to lurid hues in baseball color.

"Why did .you baseball writers say that there was some question as to my being able to rally men winter. The things that work out with men In business should work out with men in baseball.

Mat 10-30c; Nite 10-35c In short, Terry is the antithesis talked to as was the major leaguer or the okl days. The new tyj>e brings in Terry, and the new leadership.
