FRIDAY, JANUARY" Y, 1038 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FELLER IBILIII, POISE DIILL SITS Likes Way Young Speed Ace Holds Head and Delivers Ball BV II.XHKY OKAVSOK liycrts Kdilor, NEA Service CIEVELAND. Jan. 1. — Steva Q'nelll, flHifflln' off to Buffalo, iajks about young Robert Feller. Everybody connected with the Cleveland club—past or present— i.peaks of (he Iowa schoolboy who .stands major league hillers on ilirir heads. O'Neill reveals something abotu Feller which never before has ):eei! stressed. It is that next, r.o liis stuff, the position of his head while delivering the ball is Bullet Bob's biggest a&cl. "You will recall that I caueUl Feller, July G, 1935, Iho afternoon on which he made his bow against the St. Louis Cardinals In an exhibition game," beams O'Neill, wife has handled the lad's every pitching move since. "I thought he'd kill me, by the way . "And I'll never forget Leo Dil- icehcr Jumping clear out of the batter's box. with the remark: •Another Jeff proffer. Looks at third base and throws to the plate.' "Rller has everything, but 1 nclually believe lhat Ihe lact the batter sees only one of his eyes uiilil he is till the way around gives him that extra touch of mystery that spells genuine greatness. "I recall Eddie licse, a New Orleans outfielder, paying last spring that to him it looked like Felk-i was goin;; to throw tho ball straight up in the air. And Ihat's where pitchers want, the hitlers— 'slmlgtil ii)) in the air." Delivery As Smooth As Corn Silk O'Neill, in the best position to judge, asserts that those who suspect that Feller's motion puls excessive strain on his arm are wrong. "Hob's delivery is as smooth as corn silk, and he follows through perfectly." explain-; tiic famous old backstop. "The new American L;ngue motion picture, 'Batter Up,' removes all doubt about that. They shot the boy for days. "It was nothing more than Feller's youth and his eagerness 10 make good that caused him to press and hurt his arm. Asking n kid not-yet, out 1 of his teens to pilch Sunday after '. Sunday bc[o« ci-pwds of.'..,60,00<X was a bit , too much. I told Cy Slapnicka .50, uhd i r e!lcr was vastly more at east en weekdays." ' O'Neill declares that Feller ha nlcre baseball sense than any boy v.'ith whom he ever came in con tact. "He listens and learns and ha< an elephant's memory," continue tleve, "Fov example, he wa, c holding the ball in back of hiin, where coaches could see the position of his fingers. We only had to tell him once to hold it at hi« side anc! hide it." Magicians' Triclis Unnecessary O'Neill believes dial Feller will win 20 or more games for the Indians in 1033, and advises Oocar Vitt to give him four full flajs between starts. "His arm injury last season made him 'a little afraid lo snap on tile hook hn is capable of throwing." concludes C i 'Neill "He'll really let go next season . and Ihen you'll rsally see something." O'Neill docs not consider Feller t\£ fast as Johnson, but points out lhat the Van Meter wonder chuc 1 ' a livelier ball. "Johnson threw more of a side aim tall and the nail came into the hitter." he concludes. "Feller i?nid one hops upward as did Ed die Cicotte's shine ball. Hittei everlastingly swing a couple of inches under it." Young Bob Feller has all of tho old magician;;' slutf without hiiv- ,iiig to rcscrt lo any cf their tricks.

They could count, upon his unswerving honesty. His name upon a map made it an authoritative document. A good name is no less important today. 'As you read the advertisements in this newspaper, you see the names of manufacturers and merchants who have buikled 1 their business success upon honest products. The very fact that,they advertise speaks for their integrity. The store that stays in business has not only to get customers but to keep them year after year. Your good-will is worth t(M much to be endangered by inferior, unsatisfactory goods. Read the advertisements regularly. They will save you minutes and money. They serve as maps of good merchandise—signed with names which, like the name of Washington, have been tested by many and found 1 completely trustworthy.
