How Do They Do It? – Strength Magazine – May, 1921

The guy who first pulled that wise crack about many a true word being spoken in jest, certainly orated an armful. For years the joke-smiths and professional jesters on our great daily papers have been handing out side splitting paragraphs about pennants being won in the winter league and in the hot stove circuit, little knowing they were dishing out some serious facts. Every time they felt in the mood to pry some giggles from the mob, they mentioned some ball club that always wins the championship on or before April 10. That’s usually a few days before the opening game of the season is played.
