The top of the sports page has a one column head: "Ruth May Add To His Laurels" as his .385 batting average is close to surpassing Harry Heilmann's .395. "...Babe, however, is secure in home run honors with 38 and is so far in front as a scorer...". Also on this page is: "Unassisted Triple Play A Hummer" by George Burns, just the third such play in all of Major League Baseball.
