I know he was tickled at Fort Myers fn the spring of 1030 when Dllnell Williams showed so much promise around second base. Two years ago an eye infection impaired Max's vision. Thus handicapped he played in 129 ball games, but during much of the time the other players were moving blurs.

It ooked as though a place would be made for him on Ihe bench las' year. But Max beat the illness. radually his eyes improved and His playing last year was an improvement over his disastrous showing of 1929. This year he has been himself again, like the great player he was in 1928 when he hit 31C. He has been going all over tho diamond tor ground ers and flits.
