Now that the New York Yankees
have exercised the option in their con-
tract with Babe Ruth and extended it
up to and including the season of 1926.
the well known King of Swat can now
center his attention on the task of
slamming out enough home runs the
next three years to recompense for
his monthly pay check.
Ruth's main problem, as the train-
ing season nears, is that of control- -
not of his circuit smashes, but of his
sotmach. His waistline weighs heav-I
ily on his mind as well as on his troso.
Ruth, with the waistline and waist-
line problem always before him, has
been active this winter around his
farm at Sudhury, Mass.
The emperor of swat has been wield-
ing the ax with the fervor of a form-
er kaiser the past wintry days. But
wood chopping cultivates an appetite,
and Babe likes to eat.
Aside from the excessive avoirdupois

pears in good shape. The winter in
the open regular exercise, eating (al-,
beit too much) and plenty of sleep
have put him in trim. For this reas-
on he expects little difficulty in pull-!
ing several inches off his girth.
Not a New Contract
When it was announced recently at
Yankee headquarters that Ruth's con-
tract has three more years to run the
impression bobbed up that he had re-
ceived and signed a new contract.#
Such was not the caes. To clear up
the tanele of rumors the Yankee boss-
tract sum. It seems that the smaller
amount is a bonus of $10,000 extend-
ed over a five-year period. When Babe
.was originally offered the contract it
called for a yearly check of $50,000.
Babe asked $10,000 for signing. Col.
Til Huston objected to the bonus idea.
He finally offered to shake the. dice
with Babe to see whetelir the bonus
should be paid. Babe won the shak e
and Huston lived up to hia word, but
arranged to pay it in yearly instal-
