And plenty of competition. Davis thinks competition Is all he needs In set a record. "I don't like to run." he says, ' unless there's someone in Ihero who's really hard to beat." Hal won 24 straight races last year, and was conceded to be the best sprinlcr iu action. But Ibis spring he was slow rounding into form. The experts thought thai seven year.s of intensive competition had taken Ihcir loll. Davis gave them their answer week, when, he covered Ihe hundred in nine and five-lcnlhs seconds.

HKI.I'KI) BUGS TO TWO FLAGS Chesbro blew the bunting for tlie Highlanders after winning 41 of their 92 victories, but helped the Pittsburgh Pirates to Iheir first two pennants before Jumping to the new American League In '03. Exceptionally swift and with his spilter breaking all over the place, Chesbro .was a splendid pitcher over a span of a half dozen years—21 and S for the Buccaneers In '01, 28 nnd li In '02. and 21 and 15 for the Highlanders in '03. that amazing 41 and 12 in '04, and ID and 13 In '05 and 24 and 10 In 'OG. Chesbro may have .been the first spitball pitcher, for Elmer Stricklclt, credited iwlth originating it, did not teach it to 'Big Ed Walsh of the White Sox until '04. Chesbro easily might have been decorating the ball wilh spit in .1901, when he suddenly "arrived"' following five years In tlie minors and a so-so freshman year as rt Corsair, LEFT MARK IN NATIONAL Chesbro's 21 victories against 9 my. season he set the pace for all National League handcuff artists witli 23 out of 31, twice slurned ill ' three -shutouts in siiccessitni, bagged 12 games in a row. ^ Cliesbro pitched 15 years in all, 11 in (lie majors, won 19V and lost 123 In his 10 best. He threw almost straight overhand, had perfect form. Chesbro operatcel a lumber yard in Ills native North Adams, Mass., but in his heyday would have had a difficult time selling his merchandise to enemy batters. There wasn't much batters could elo with lumber when Jack Chcjibro had something on the ball.
