At each meeting, his compatriot (ii-oved lo IK; men wllli long beards.' It was all very depressing.. Then he received his pay check.

Weaver won his first, four starts this season, shutting out (lie Boston R«l sox once, nnd de- rcatinit the Athletics three times', allowing them only six hlls in one contest. , • The Norlh Carolina youngster was graduated from Emory-Henry College In Virginia, ufter having missed a Rhodes Scholarship by a nalv. He was practically assured of the lionor. but the professor who' was to have filed .his application had an absent-minded spell and forgot Weaver's application until It was too laic: •Weaver then accepted a post at Ihe University of Virginia as an assistant professor ol mathematics. He liked the work, but the salary didn't make the post, attractive. Weaver hud acquired something- of n reputation as a pitcher while at Emory-Henry, so he turned lo base- oall. He rose rapidly, and led Hie International League In 1031. Washington bought him for a arge handful of cash, and enough layers to .oulflt an entire minor tie.
