m y SAW RUTH HIT 1st, 714th HRs ewis Davis Powers 9 Pilots Outlasts L - ' - " ; By HAROLD KAESE The diamond stickpin, the Tattersall weskit, the fountain pen with the stub point and green ink, the chicken a la king ("all white meat, please"). These all helped identify Duffy Lewis, who at 73 recently retired from his job as traveling secretary of the Milwaukee Braves. It was a job he had taken with some misgivings in the Spring of 1936, after Bob Quinn had been given control of the bankrupt Braves; and it was a job in which he outlasted nine Braves managers. Raise your boy to be traveling secretary . if he likes to fly. ( - - 4w Li DUFFY LEWIS ""Lewis saw Bill McKechnie move to the Cincinnati Reds in 1937, Casey Stengel fired in 1943 by the Three Little Steam Shovels (they couldn't understand him!), Bob Coleman resign during the 1945 horrors, and Del Bissonette let out at the end of that season. In 1951 the pace became too fast for Billy South-worth, and in 1952 Tommy Holmes was dismissed. Charlie Grimm got the gate during the 1956 campaign, but Fred Haney made it through 1959. When Charlie Dressen departed in September, Birdie Tebbetts became the 10th manager on Lewis' rooming list in 26 years. As a road secretary for better than a quarter-century, Lewis toured the country by plane, train, bus and auto an estimated 1,800,000 miles. This was perhaps the easiest part of his job until recent years, when the flying routine of too many 4"a.m. arrivals started to get him down. Year after year he had to make all the arrangements for 35-man squads plus plenty of extras to travel the same distances he did. "When do we leave? What airport? Our time, or Eastern time?" " 'Will You Get Me a Flight?' "The manager says it's, OiC.if I go home tomorrow. Will you get me a flight" "My room is hot, Duff. Can you get' em to change it?" "You got my meal money, Duffy?" "My family's coming to Pittsburgh. Can you get me a couple of adjoining double rooms?" A traveling secretary is a professional arranger for a lot of self-centered people made important by the flattery of public acclaim, temperamental, demanding, unreasonable, and too often ungrateful. . . But, like most big league secretaries, Duffy Lewis in addition to his formal duties was also one who liked to do favors for people to whom he was not in the least obligated. 'Insisted on First Gass r He never seemed happier than when he was the host A little finicky, perhaps, but he always insisted on the Braves going first class. Anything less annoyed him. He had a pretty quick temper and a delicate stomach. Nothing bothered his stomach more than second-rate ball players. J For Duffy had been a top-grade player, just as he was a top-grade secretary and a top-grade guy. He will be remembered, of course, as the left fielder in the immortal Red Sox outfield of Hooper, Speaker and Lewis ... as the man whose hit won the 1-0 duel between Smokey Joe Wood and Walter Johnson ... as the pinch-hitter for Babe Ruth who singled in the winning run ... as a .444 hitter in the 1915 World Series ... as the man after whom Duffy's Cliff in old Fenway Park was named. Manager and Coach He was a star player who made a small fortune, lost in the depression, started back by managing Joe Conway's Portland club in the New England League in 1927, and became one of McKechnie's two coaches (Hank Gowdy was the other) in 1931, when Judge Fuchs had the Braves. Duffy saw the first of Babe Ruth's 714 home runs as a Sox teammate in 1915, and the last as Braves coach in 1935, at Pittsburgh. He saw the ball become livelier and the game deader. He saw playing standards deflated through expansion. He saw baseball rescued by Ruth, by night baseball, by Negro players and by television. Born in San Francisco, a star in Boston, Lewis' career closed in the Midwest, at Milwaukee. Now, there is a fellow who did get around and did things most of them, for others. ir i . ... a.. l r "way sports i awKey 10 uena onraD, Red Sox Action Expected By HY HURWITZ , You may expect all sorts of stories involving the Red Sox from the major league meetings in Miami at the end of the month.

Yawkey personally engineered a deal with the Cleveland Indians. It was clinched in the lobby of the Statler-Hil- ton with Frank Lane, then G. M. of the Indians. In it, Jimmy Piersall went to Cleveland in exchange for Vic Wertz and Gary Geiger. A proposal was drawn up by the Players Association requesting that 25 of all baseball revenues be set aside for player salaries. When Yawkey i heard of this, he almost blew his stack. For the first time publicly, he intimated he might "withdraw" from baseball and labelled the demands prepos terous. I To prove his point, Yawkey icited figures that revealed 29 !of Pved Sox revenues were go ing to the players. He already was paying in excess of the player demands but he real-! ized . any set figure as demanded by the Players Association was ridiculous and impossible. The demands were dropped. So you see, where Yawkey goes, action follows. We recall one previous occasion in the late "40s, when Tom attended the major league pow-wows in St. Petersburg, Fla. At that affair, the owners requested the resignation of A. B. 'Happy' Chandler as Commissioner. There also was a Sox deal. By strange coincidence, Yawkey and Lane again were the central figures. At the time, Lane was General Manager of the White Sox. The Red Sox-traded outfielder Al Zarilla for right handed pitcher Ray Scarborough and southpaw Bill Wright. The White Sox were accused of trading ths pennant to the Red Sox. The Boston Sox needed pitching and Lane provided them with the men who figured to make the Fenway staff unbeatable. The pennant was won in the subsequent season by you know who, the Yankees. FENCING Brandeis Shapiro Gym, 2 p.m., N.E. A.F.L.A. Sabre Open competition.
