Famous Fables By E E. Edgar VOW: During the years he was the pitching star of the St. Louis Cardinals. Dizzy Dean made no secret of his conviction that it was his strong right arm alone which kept the team in pennant contention. U n d e r s t a n d a b l y , h i s braggadocio irritated manager Frank Frisch, who did not relish being relegated to a secondary role. For a time, during one season, the two scarcely spoke to each other. Finally, his teammates- persuaded Dean to make peace with Frisch. Dean went over to the latter, extended his hand and said: "Frank. I'll make you a promise. .Startin' today, no more braggin', only pitchi- n'." Frisch was more than agreeable. "I-hope you mean it," he responded. 'Til .show you how much Ole Diz means it," declared Dean. "From now on, I'll win so many games I'll mak-e you look like the best manager in the league." MONEY'S WORTH: During his-early days in New York, Oliver Herford could not meet his hotel expenses. The manager did not press t h e a b s e n t - m i n d e d I l - lustrator for the money, but at the end of each week would submit an updated bill,-reflecting the current amount due. One morning, after several weeks had passed, he met Herford in the'lobby and said: "Did. you get the latest bill?" "Yes," nodded Herford. "I see it is mounting." "That's to be expected." commented the manager, with a trace of sarcasm. "Do you have any further observations to make on the subject?" ".Well," answered Herford., : : with his own peculiar: logic, "if it gets any larger, I will have to ask for a larger room."
