(By Harry B. Grundy)
"Slicker" Parks, Michigan's former
pitching star, met with a little mis-
fortune in his first attempt to stop the
onrush of the New York Yankees.
"slicker" started the game for Cobb's
men and held the Yanks to one run
for the first four- innings, while his
teammates piled up a lead of four
runs, In the fifth Parks was forced
to give way to another pitcher, after
he had apparently lost control. It was
not the Yankees' hitting which forced
Parks to retire but rather his inability
to locate the plate. This was an un-
usual situation for "Slicker" to be in,
for in his days on the college diamond
it was his ability to put the ball over
for three straight strikes which

ByG.D. E.
Dr. Frank Crante
The elect, the heaven-sent, the plen-
ipotentiary from the pearly gates,
has turned critiic of literature, not
only morally but aesthetically. Thus
we have Dr. Frank Crane, jazz Mes-
sigh and public sop, criticising the
books of Knut Hamsun - adversely.
"A dreadful, dreary expanse of dul-
ness, unlit by plot, humor or flash of
nobility," says Dr. Crane, newspaper
pulpit pounder, about "Hunger". and
" Growth of the Soil". He thus revers-
es the opinon of ;H. L. Mencken and
other critics of the first rank on "Hun-
ger". As for:"Growth of the Soil", it
is, in all probability, the book which'
won Hamsun the Nobel Peace prize
in literature for 1920. This volume
was greatly praised by H. G. Wells
All Fooled
Think how foolish the judges who
awarded the Nobel prize will feel
now! How abashed Wells will be!
How crestfallen Mencken will ap-
pear! How beautifully all these men
were fooled! For Dr. Frank Crane is
Horatio Alger Jr. reincarnated and
turned editor; no less! He is a well
paid newspaper evangelist. He is fam-
ous, revered and trusted from shore
to shore; that is, from Manhattan to
Brooklyn. He is, in brief, a typical
saver of souls. If you really wish to
'm to heaven ask him to show you
N'ow and follow his advice to the let-
Really, the best way to dispose of
Dr. Crane before the intelligent read-
er would be to quote some1 of his
syndicated editorials, but I, for one,
baven't the stomach to read them, let
alone hammering them out on the
typewriter. They are worse than
Bruce Barton's. Read the latter's
stuff, which is to be found in the
"American" magazine, keeping, of
course, a strong emetic handy, and
you will have some idea of the awe-
inspiring trumpery which Dr. Crane
turns out.
Is Popular
In view of the doctor's pronuncia-
mento, it is interesting to note that
over 60 sets of "Growth of the Soil"
have been sold in Ann Arbor. The
set in the Library is on the waiting
list, and my own has been borrowed
a number of times. What an ignor-
ant lot we are!
At first I took the reverend doctor
for a rather.clever commercial hypo-
ciite, who did not believe at all the
fiddle-faddle which he spouts out. I
pictured him dashing off his celestial
twaddle, then marching to the cash-
ier's office and drawing a good sized'
check, and finally returning compla-
cently home to a bottle of Scotch
and a game of poker. I felt that no
one was more aware that what he
wrote was flapdoodle than he him-
The Doctor Is Serious
But I was wrong. He takes his
fiummery seriously. In his criticism
of Hamsun's books one recognies the
inner man. He rejected-them as dull

pitcher. Parks had some consolation
in striking out Meusel twice. Parks'
performance was creditable in view
of the fact that none of the Detroit
pitchers seem to be able to stop the,
Yanks. It is also - remembered that
George Sisler, considered by- many to
be the greatest pitcher ever on the
mound for a Wolverine team, allowed
11 hits in his first game for the St.
Louis Browns. Sisler was also gener-
ous with passes when first under Big
league fire.
Princeton, N. J., will be the scene
of one of the biggest intersectional
matches of the fall when the Univer-
sity of Chicago clashes with the Tiger
eleven on Oct. 22. Stagg has a two,
year contract with Princeton and in
1922 the Eastern gridders will meet
the Maroons' in ! Chicago., Chicago
seems to be leading the other confer-
ence schools in intersectional con-
tests this season. Already the Ma-
roons have booked two of these'
games. The other intersectional bat-
tle is with the University of Colorado.
Stagg is not generally supposed tc
have an abundance of material with!
which to uphold the reputation of the
Big Ten.. However, the Chicago mer
ter is a crafty coach and may sprir,
a surprise upon the critics who do not
concede him a chance with Princeton
What's in a Nane?
The Chicago Tribune remarks that
there is a change of fashion in the
change of athletes names. It calls at-
tention to the names of the onc-e-
'amous Cub infield of Evers to Tin-
'ter to Chance and then alludes to t,,(,
:ames of' the men on the present ag-
gregation. All of the old tans insist
that the new, names sound poor when
"ompared with the names of the old
ayers. They insist thatnafter a1
'there is some thing in a name. This
seems to be the case throughout all
-'ports and applies in college sports.
"Jntil a man has done something ex-
ceptional\ he is never noticed by the
public but after he has succeded in
gaining public recognition his name
.s on the lips of all of the follower-
'f athletics. Take, for example, the
names of Stinchcomb, Harley, Mau'-
betsch, or Sisler. Their names, after
once being made, grow with each ad-
ditional year and the poor fellow with
a ,common name like Jones or Smiti
who tries to fill their shoes is con-
stantly criticized unless he is an ex-

ity but it was not until the Univer-
sity of California startled the East by
its win in the Eastern Intercollegiate
that the Coast boys were given sur
recognition. It is a curious coinci-
dence that Dan Kelly, Howard Drew,
and Charles Paddock, the officially
recognized sprint champions of the
world, have set their' record of 9 3-5
for the hundred yard dash in Califor-
nia events. Whether or not the cli-
mate of the coast has anything to do
with the development of great track
stars, it is evident that a good share
of them come from that region. -Mich-

There was no need for the second
step; the man really went out of his

that he is sincere - and ignorant -

He reminds one of the man who had
