5E5 Oddly Matched Pair Launch Great Adventure In Chain System <Thls Is the fifth of a series of articles on the Smartest Man in Baseball—Branch Rickey, the brain 'behind the world champion St. ixxu's Cardinals.) • <-. i BY HAftUY OHAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Srrvire An unique friendship wns a spur to the success of the St.' Louis Cardinals. Branch' Rickey, whose Benin; .made lire Red Dlrrt organization the hitjest and most powerful in baseball, nnd Charles Francis Barrett, denu nnd foremost of scouts, wefc-^niici still are—oddly mnlch- cd partners in a great adventure. ' Rickey nnd Barrett first met In •1904, while the-former, fresh from , Ohio Wesley an University, wns doing a good job of talking Ihe owner of the Dallas Texas League club into keeping him on the payroll. :Barrclt was an outfielder with Houston whose weakness wns chasing curve malls lo first base. From the start their relationship was as unusual ns' it lias been close They had only one thing In common as players—a deep desire to crash the majors, Otherwise their thoughts were ns-far apart as Jim Farley and Huey Long. ',-Rickey, the college man, wns nn idealist and n basebnll theorist. He wns willing to burn the cnndle in :order, lo complete a inw course. He .grasped Hint.hrs future as batant was indefinite, nnd at best ^insecure He wns a lecloinlcr who refused lo play on Sunday nnd who detested profanity. Equally Unlike Today Bairett found It necessary lo quit school nl the age of 14" nnd . go to work as a messenger bov in St Louis Charley had no newfangled Ideas about biseball He knew that llio main one was to gel on and llicn •iiound the b'ises. A remarkable babe runnel his bjjgest handicap uns. that he could not steal first base Ban-ell was far. from n lolnl ab- stnlnci, had no qualms about Sun- daj activities, ami thoroughly en- jojed lih association with players 01. ihe old .school. Rickey and Barrett are equally imHke today. While Rickey admits that some of the exalted notions he look Inlo Ihe game have had lo be considerably modified, he still Is the man of four degrees, lite unit mil} trustee, and public speaker JIis older associates call him^B R, the -younger .'ones Mr. The' genial Barretts ~^-many, 'friends and acquaintances, the' vast majority of them tycars his junior, csal him Chailijy.i Mr. Barrett, 1 •sojnehou, just doesn't nt.

S^ids for OW Friend Barrett switched lo Ihe Detroit Tigers just long enough lo uncover Bins Miller shortly before Rickey organized Hie group Ihnt purchased the Cardinals in 1917. The' first man B. R. sought to assist him in his new undertaking was his intimate of the Texas League days, nnd the ivory expert obtained permission ^froni Frank J. Navin to renew his old relationship. •Barrett helped Rickey sell Cardinal stock nt $25 n .share, and bought what he could himself. .With the club heavily in debt, Rickey leased n small office in.the Railway Exchange Building in St. Louis. He managed to produce a desk and a couple of chairs'. Barrett du? down into his own pocket and bought ink nnd pen points. .Rickey took rugs from his home while Mrs. Rickey was away from the city, so that the office might have some aspect of, prosperity. "One day. I came' lo the olfice and Branch was on his hands and knees, rolling up the rugs," recalls Barrelt, '"What's the matter. Branch?' I .asked him. "'Hurry, Charley, 1 he replied, •Mrs Rickey telegraphed that she's coming home today. We've got to -get these rugs out to the house right away, or she'll find out about It. 1 " Barrett Fo*y Forarer > Rickey appreciated the worth ot Barrett, who had uncovered such Stars as Jeff Tesrcau, George Pos ten Arthur Hetcher, BU!
