Calif. are a thousand good stories—some of them true—about old Jim Thorpe, the greatest all-around athlete of the past 50 years. And. in the nearly -10 years since the muscular Sac-Fox Indian first flashed lo athletic-fame at Carlisle Indian school, it has become Increasingly hard to tell where the truth ends and where excusable exaggeration begins. James Francis Thorpe Is not merely n legendary figure in American sports. He's thc kind of man about whom legends grow. And Thorpe hinNelf seldom hesitated lo add to the fable of Old Jim. Perhaps, in later years, when he found it hard to earn a living, his memory played him false on dates and details. Or maybe Jim liked to make a good story better, too. Taking fact and figure for what they're worth, the sports writers and broadcasters of the United States, participating in the Associated Press poll, volcd Thorpe Ihe oulstandini; male athlete of the lirst half of the 20lh century. They put him far ahead of Babe Rulh, Jack Dempsey, Ty Cobb, Bobby Jones and Joe Louis—all great athletes about whom some colorful yarns also have been told. Second In Track Of the 393 voters, 252 named Thorpe first. 45 named him second and 29 third. Ruth draw 86 first place voles, 118 seconds and 45 thirds. Dempsey was ranked third with 19, 61 and Sfi. In other ballots, the experts also chose Thorpe—now til years old as Ihe outstanding football player ot the 1900-1949 period and ranked him second only to Jesse Owens in track. According to legend. Thorpe was virtually Indestructible; the kind of guy who'd ask: "Who could get hurt playing football?'.' There's a legend that Thorpe couldn't hit a curve ball, a weakness which finally forced him out of the major leagues. Yet Jim was good enough, to remain In the majors six seasons and to draw a 57,500 salary when ?7,500 really meant something. His "lifetime" major league balling acernge was .252. but in 1919 his last season, he hit .327 for B2 games. Eddie Rough won the National League championship thai with .321 for 133 gamrs. In the next tw-o seasons Jim batted .360 for Akron In the International League and .358 for Toledo in Ihe American Association. 25 Til's In 1912 Playing football for a little school that usually was outmanncd and outweighed against tllc strongest of 'he big eastern colleges. Thorpe scored 25 touchdowns and a 108 point lolal In 1912. That same year and decathlon at the Stockholm in each competition. Later, when his medals and tro- phise were taken from him because he had violated the strict Olympic code of amateurism by playing professional baseball for SCO a month his defeated rivals refused to accept them. They insisted: "Thorpe won llicin fairly. He is thc greatest athlete in the world." Thorpe also starred In baseball basketball and lacrosse at Carlisle and hud a ning at wrestling. How Thorpe's baseball feats have been amplified is shown by a clipping on file in the National League office. it tells how Old ,Jlm spun a yarn about hittiiiK three home runs 'into three dilfcrent stales during H spring exhibition In the state-line city of Texarkana. 'Hie first. h6 said was inside the park, which was entirely in Texas. The second went over HID righl field cncc Inlo^Arkansas and the third over the left field fence into Oklahoma. 'The iicm concludes: "Thorpe Is rated the greatest all-around athlete who ever lived. He must have been to hit lhat last home run for Ihe Oklahoma border is some 40 miles beyond the left field fence he describes."

His only comment for publication is: "I hope lo break the record and I'd like to. I've, certainly been trying but It's a little tough." "1 ht-pc to have a good year.

Ralph was honored last night ns Pittsburgh's most outstanding athlete of 1043. lie was guest at the annual dinner of the Dapper Dan Club, a sports-minded civic orgQutalion. He won the same honor in 1047. The Dapper Dan's citation said Kincr's "booming bat thundered for his four year total to 1CB."
