"Ty Cobb Is a Harder
Man to Pitch to Than
Babe Ruth," Shawkey
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Beo Leased Wire.
Chicago, Aug. 5. The hardest
man in the American league to pitch
You're wrong. It isn't Babe Ruth
. Here's what Bob Shawkey, Jor
years a star on the hurling staffer of
the Athletes and Yankees, has to
"Ruth is the hardest hitter in the
game and the most dangerous in the
pinches, because you never can teh
where he will slam the ball. Let
me mention one fact to you, though.
In my experience I'll say I'd rather
face the Babe in a pinch than Ty
"Cobb is" the greatest batter of
them all. He is constantly crowd
ing the plate, making you work your
head off, shrewd, rarely outguessed
and can kit anything in the world a
pitcher ever had. v
"When the Babe steps up you
have a gambling chance,, if ycur
stomacx is good. He'll either slam
it out of the lot, strike out or'hit
one to the infield. Ruth rarely hits
long flies. When he docs they clear
"I think there are. a ,lot of pitch
ers who will back me' up in this
statement A , man swinging as
viciously as Ruth does is bound to
miss many times, while Ty Cobb's
timing system has all the boys
guessing in the tight spo.' "
JUST A MINUTE
s With the Sporting Editor
- By J. A. SHANAHAN.
Regardless of what "Babe'Rut
did Wednesday, or rather failed to
do, men like "Red" faber and Urban
Shocker are hurting the game when
they deliberately pass "Bambinot"
Faber walked Ruth three times Tues
day. Shocker has walked the home
run king four and ftVe times in 'a
Many fans pay their money to
see the great "fence-buster" hit. Fans
have crossed the continent
Omahans have gone to Chicago for
th current Yankee-Sox series just
to see the great slugger whale one
out of. the lot. Then to have an
opposing pitcher intentionally pass
Ruth hurts the game.
There is nothing new in the sug
gestion that a rule be drafted al
lowing a batsman to take two bases
when he is intentionally passed, but
there is food for, thought in it Pitch
ers would be less apt to put a man
on base intentionally when they put
him half way round instead of on
first With a man on base it would
be foolish except in extreme cases
to walk even "Babe", Ruth.

Detroit, Aug. S.T-"Babe" Ruth of

Plan Drive to Get
"Night Riders" In
A drive against a number of Oma
hans who are attempting to evade
payment of automobile licehse tax
was to be started last night, accord
ing to plans by County Treasurer
Endres and Sheriff .Clark.
"We believe there art about 50
Omaha owners of automobiles who
are trying to evade the tax," said
F. H. Hansen, automobile license
clerk in the county treasurer's af
fice. "They are people who' do not
drive their cars in the daytime' but
only at night. , They go out about
twilight and drive in the outskirts
of the city and along country roads,
where they think there is little
danger of their old license being no
ticed. Two-Year-Old License.
' "I was out riding the other night
and saw one car with a 1918 license
number on. I just happened to get
the number as the car passed a light.
We believe there are about SO of
these petty crooks who are trying to
evade payment of the tax.
"With the state automobile license
running around. $20 a year for a
moderate-sized car, there is a
temptation to try to 'put one over.'
In this drive we hope to gather in
some of these birds. And when we
get them it will go hard with them."

this charge is a fine of not more
than $50 and imprisonment in the
cdfcnty jail for not more than three
