Beauty and Baseball
Herman Franks, young rookie

probably the only- mnio' league
player in baseball history who
ever owned a beauty shop. Frank'
purchased a hair curling estab-

that he sent back three baseball
contracts before finally signing

Lucky Teter, a man who prev-

driver” show that thrilled thous-
ands but also wrecked plenty of
cars. He also runs a stable of
horses and sometimes wins a race.
'Most momentous decision Crr
Reynolds, outfielder of the Chi-
cago Cubs, ever had to make was
when he turned down a job of
athletic coach upon graduation
from Southwestern University at
Georgetown, Texas. Oddly
enough, on his home campus, the
fail haired fly chaser was more
famous for his speed and jump
ing ability than for baseball
playing. In Lone Star academic
circles he was known as the
“One Man Track Team.”
Craft Snares ’Em
Harry Craft, outfielder with
the Cincinnati Reds, was picked
by most baseball conscious folk
as the player who would become
the premier picket man in the
National League. Such a unani-1
mous opinion seemed strange un-
til the following record was un-|
covered. During his farmort
season at Syracuse in 1937, his
throwing as well ns his ground-
coverage on flies, brought the
scouts hot on his tail. He chalk
ed up 14 assists on 83 games.
