Ever since they "hopped up” Iho horsehide, Hellmann has been banging for an average beyond every other ba.seballer in the universe. In the days when the ba.seball wa.s juat and nothing more, Heilmann was a fair hitter. Since then he lias been the super-swatsniith. What’s the answer? The bromidic reply Is that the new brand of baseball, being easier to hit Into safe territory, is w liolly responsible. If that’s true, why aren’t the men who hit beyond Heilmann back in 191S, 1917, 1918, 1919 and 1920 batting beyond him now? If the rabbit baseball has provoked an average increase of nearly I'iO points in Heilmann’s average, why SECOND GUESSES LAY THEM LOW And Moral Is: Always Go Through With Your Slide hasn’t It (lone the same thing for all the others? Just Learning His Stuff. Perhaps the real truth is tliat Hell- niunn w’as just learning how to hit the baseball four aeason.s ago and that knowledge, plus the long distance liull of today, l.s tlie double-bar­ relled answer why he has become the klng-piii hitter of the big leagues. Une of the strange things about Heilmann’s amazing feats with the war club is that full credit never has been given him. When tlie weekly averages have been published thei o is usually a headline "Hellmanp Leads Hltter.s”—and beyond that llt- John McGraw Figures Giants Set For Drive to Fourth Straight Flag. Veteran Pitchers Round Into Form, Taking Burden Off His Youngsters. NEIV TURK, June 20 — The graying head of John McGraw is not at all worrjing over the fact that the Giants are not one hundred jumps or so out In front—as their; Gotham followers had anticipated. And McGraw seems delighted because hi.s athletes have been at or I near the top of the National league i heap ever since the first "play ball” i ' sounded. He didn’t anticipate quite | so pleasurable a happening as the result of his pitching strategy. ‘ At the outset of the season. Me- ' ! Graw had a group of veteran pitchers and a group of youngsters. He reallxed that his old-timers have ^ I reached a point where too much work * ' In the chilly days of springtime is | very likeJjr to disrupt the organisms of their arms and this likely would ' have returned their warm weather effectiveness. He also knew that his , voung pitchers have arms of steel | which are not affected in any way | bj' climate.. Depended On Youngsters. So McGraw started the season using youngsters, and through April, May and the early part of June has depended upon the kid pitchers to | hold the Giants around the heights. I The veterans on the staff of the National league champions have not been thrown Into action with any regularity up to this time. As a result, their arms have not known any strains; they have been w’orked Into shape gradually and, as McGraw puts it. those arms are now about ready to perform the yeoman service for the team. Many New York rooter.s, who feel that McGraw' could win the pennant If possessed of only nine batboys, have become upset occasionally over the fact that John’s team Is not well out In the front In the race for the 1924 honors. But .McGraw declares: Satisfied With His Team. “T am perfectly satisfied with the standing of the learn at the present time. It has performed better than | I really had c.\pected. During the j first w eeks of the campaign 1 have J been throwing most of the work upon the youngsters—and everyone knows that young pitchers are a bit unreliable and that a learn aided only bv youthful pitching surely does not make much of a show ing. “I am mighty glad that I decided not to work the veterans very much through April, May and the first part | of thi.s month. If I had, I am afraid j that the terrible weather that w e | have bumped into almost since tlio opening of the season would have caused a stiff arm epidemic within the ranks. Sees Pennant In Dffing.

The whanging stat of the .Ameii- cr.n league goes about his w ork calm- Iv. methodically, almost bashfully, at times. Instead of courting the applause of the crowds, he l.s modest to a point where he almost shuns it. All of which seems to prove that no 1 .alter liow truly great a ma*: and his (*feds are, he must be something ( f an actor to win the ovations he so richly de.servcs. The record.s show that Heilmann alwajs was a good long distance hitter but never until 1921 a wonder man with tlie liickory bludgeon In the first eight years of Ids baseball career he could not average .300 Including his minor league wo:-k. Yet, since 1920, Including the first four weeks of 1924, he has averaged above 400. Started In Far Northwest. Heilmann was born in San Francisco .Vugust 3, 1894. His first job was with Portland in the Pacif.c Northwestern league in 1913. He played first and outfield in 122 game« and batted .305. He appeared in a Detroit uniform in 1914, liav ing been purchased b) the Tigers for $1.300. In 87 games the best he could do with the bat was a woeful .223, The Tigers decided he’t ripe and Heilmann was released to San Francieco, where he played first base in 1915. He hit 364 in 98 games that year and Detroit recalled him at* the start of 1916. Heilman has been with the Tigers ever since, alternating at I first and in the outfield in 1916 1917, 1918. 1919 and 1920. He has played the outfield since then. Heilmann’s Early Record. Here is Ileilmann’s record as a batter from the outset of Ills career until the "lively” ball came into o.vistence. Therefore, things look mighty rosy for us, and if we do not bump into any crippling uccidents, we ouglit to breeze home in front when the October wire is reached.” TENNESSEE DOCTOR HEAÜS Ü.

Building Business for the Long Run The truth about anything requires a certain perspective. If viewed too closely, even a masterpiece cannot be understood or appreciated. It takes a certain di.stance to bring out its value.s. This is especially true in building a business, and in using advertising as one of the means of building it. The clear vision comes only with the con.sidera- tion of what is best in the long run. One season's business may be abnormally large or abnormally smali---due to conditions over which the owners of the business have no control. To consider the business itself as .safe and sound just because, at a certain season, the orders are coming in, is often a dangerous fallacy. far more threatening to the eventual welfare of the than a season of slotv hiisine.s.s that makes it difficult to keep going. During tlie past few years economic conditions have combined to prove the fallacy of a hand-to-moutli policy of manufacturing and marketing, always at the mercv of market flue- tuations. witli the manufacturer helpless to influence his market. And, on the other hand, these conditions have proved the wdsdom of considering the long run and making all plans in accordance with that view. Today, as a result of recent economic changes, and of lessons .severely learned, tens of thousands of deal- crs, in every line of merch-, are giving a new emphasis to their preference for lines of merchan- that are trademarked and adequately adverti.sed by the manufacturer. The public, during the period of minimum .sales, demon- .strated its preponderant preference for advertised goods, and the dealers will not do (Otherwise than accept the situation and hnild their for tlu« future in harmony with it.' Thousands of manufacturers who today are facing a shortage of demand for tlieir product, and who see what demand tiñere is going to competitive manufacturers who have in.sured their own market by means of ad\-erti.sing, are now looking to advertising as the logical key to future selling snccess. It is higlily important then, in .seeking to apply the force of aiJiertising, that it he considered not as a ready made enre-all for •sales inactivity, but as a permanent factor in business building. Every advertising plan that can lay claim to wisdom or hope for long run effect i \en ess retj u i res t h ree thing.s: First, to determine what are, unquestionably, the best objectives for the business in the long run. Second, what are the best means, all told, of obtaining those objectives. Third, how and to what extent advertising can be assigned its rightful place among and in relation to those means.
