HURRY KANE

" How much did that New York call cost you? " asked Kane.
" I don't know yet," said Johnny. " I suppose it was around seven bucks."
Kane went to the writing table and done a little arithmetic. From there he went back to the phone.
" Listen, girlie," he said to the operator, " you can cancel that Yuma call. I just happened to remember that the party I wanted won't be home. She's taking her mandolin lesson, way the other side of town."
Johnny told me afterwards that he didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Before he had a chance to do either, Kane says to him:
" This is my last day on this ball club."
" What do you mean ?" said Johnny.
" I mean I'm through; I'm going home," says Kane.
" Don't be a fool! " says Johnny. " Don't throw away the chance of a lifetime just because you're a little lonesome. If you stay in this league and pitch like you can pitch, you'll be getting the big money next year and you can marry that gal and bring her East with you. You may not have to wait till next year. You may pitch us into the world's series and grab a chunk of dough this fall."
" We won't be in no world's series," says Kane.
" What makes you think so? " said Johnny.
" I can't work every day," says Kane.
" You'll have help," says Johnny. " With you and Carney and Olds taking turns, we can be right up in that old fight. Without you, we can't even finish in the league. If you won't do it for yourself or for Dave, do it for me, your roomy. You just seen me spend seven or eight bucks on a phone call, but that's no sign I'm reeking with jack. I spent that money because I'd have died if i hadn't. I've got none to throw away and if we don't win the pennant, I can't marry this year and maybe not next year or the year after."
" I've got to look out for myself," says Kane. " I tell you I'm through and that's all there is to it. I'm going home where my gal is, where they ain't no smart Alecks kidding me all the while, and where I can eat without no assistant manager holding me down to a sprig of parsley, and a thimbleful of soup. For you-1- sake, Johnny," he says, " I'd like to see this club finish on top, but I can't stick it out and I'm afraid your only hope is for the other seven clubs to all be riding on the same train and hit an open bridge."
