Pare Four T H E D E C A T U R R E V I E W Stealing Third With Bases Full No Crime, Says McGraw When ball p!aj er. manager, or magnate wants to convey the Impression th4tt any one else connected v,ith the same is absolutely hopeless above the ·heulders he usually remarks. "Why, tfcat fellow would steal third with the bases full." This is supposed to represent the concentrated essence of slow thinking on the diamond HOFMAN DID IT It has been done a few times, e^ en In the major leagues, and the perpetrator* of this baseball 'crime" never have been gnen a chance to forget It Artie Hofman when he was wltn the Cubs pulled this apotreos s of ivorv plays once, although the bases were not full. HI base hit wi had to slid beat the bal. tice the coacher had held Stelnfclflt on third. He admits It Is generally considered the climax of absurdity, but declares there ai e times in a season when he believes the play is justifiable--so justifiable that he says he would not hesitate to order a man to steal with the bags all loaded. WITH WEAK BATTER UP. If that situation came up with eood runners on the bases, two out, and some batsman up who was an easy mark for the pitcher then on the slab, John says it would be a wise move to tip one of the runners off to steal second or third He argues that if the runner on first started for second it thev start throwing the ball around.

John Anderson was fai'lv driven out of Washington because he tried to «teal second once with the bases lull and was tempted into It by the same fart--that the pitcher took a long windup and Andeison thought there was no one on second, bnt learned Ms mistake too late. The mistake wrecked a chance to win the game and the fans never forgave Anderson Even after ho joined the White Sox the ·Washington placers cou.d get Johns geat bv kidding him about that plav These are only a couple of instances.

JSase^_f ull^ MEXICAN WAY OF CHASTISING other team could put out either of the other runnels and welcome, to far as McGraw Is concerned. It's Just as jus- tl'iable as the ordinary double steal, he declares, under the same circumstances But up to date we have not seen him try It. probably'because the situation neier came up'with three brainy run- CHICAGO HAS CHAMP IGNORAMUS Washington, D. C.--Daniel Vaugnan, publication cleric of lh» department ot commerce, says the champion lirnora- mus of the United States Hvea in Chicago. Several days ago this man wrote the department for a copy of the publication of 1.400 pages entitled "The Commerce and Navigation of the United States." It was Bent under the frank of the department, which of course, bore on the right hand side the familiar legend "Penalty tor private use J300" and on the left hand corner "Department of Commerce, ·Washington, D. C., return in five flays." Shortly after, Mr. Vaughan received a letter from the man, who said he liad been sitting up nights In order to read the publication, but had been unable to do so within "the alloted five days." He asked permission to keep the book thres days longer, believing he could finish It In that time. Striking tbe Trail. Chicago Journal: "Good afternoon.
