Smith, father of Jay. '. We are KENTUCKY PIONEERS, would be-a Yankee as long as he wns the head of the club. But the break came just before the world series of 1934. when Ruth went to Colonel. Ruppert nnd nsk- ed him if he intended to retain McCarthy as manager. Colonel Ruppert replied that lie did. and then Babe, announced HIM h« was through as a player. The difference between Wrigley and Ruppert -was that the lallcr stuck .with, a'.successful manager. It has paid rich dividends. Marse Joe's Slranpe Klcc[itlou- in Majors .McCarthy was nwarc of Alexander's extraordinary habits when hs assumed command of. the Cubs In 1925. His Introduction to or Pete came during the course of his Introductory gathering with the players who finished last in ihe NA- Jional League the fall before. The remarkable right-hander shuffled In some time after the meeting had been called to order. He slumped into the handiest chair and apparently fell asleep. "Now, fellows, me first big job we've got to do is devise a brand- new set of signals," went on McCarthy, handling the sltualiDn as diplomatically ns possible. "A lot of players have been traded from this: club the past few months ami they're all over the league. Nearly every club will know what your signals were. "Shucks, Joe, don't let that worry you. I don't think we'll ever get that far." It was nn unusual reception for a minor league manager making his bow in the majors, but Me- 1 CnrthyCnrlhy strung with Alexander for weeks. McCarthy wanted Alex, but the famous pitcher failed to respond. Buffalo joe finally had lo put his foot down, and when he <i:d he received this message from \Vriffley: "For,years I've been looking for 'a manager who had the nerve lo do that." Alexander was shipped down the river to St. Louis and helped the Cardinals to their first pennant and world championship, but McCarthy established himself as a disciplinarian not afraid lo call his shols.'
