Giants Conflict With

Comment and Gossip
On Sports of the Day
I.- By HERBERT -
SEK?a-\TIONS are much a part of baseball. Nothing else peril
accounts so largely for its gripping, interest. The frolicsome T
lies, who three short weeks ago appeared to bo literally shoi
pieces, have l?een providing the first sensation of tho new baseball y
The Bra-Wr?, the Giants, the Cubs, could have rushed off at the si
?wild pace without causing a ripple of excitement, but so little was
pected of the Phillies under their new manager, Pat Moran, that tl
wild whirl hau sot all tongues wagging. Without detracting from
crs-sdit dire tho players, who have settled so quickly into their stride v
a show of -spirit that is impressive, It may be suggested that th? rac
rot always to the swift, and that one year the Pittsburgh Pirates ?
fifteen out of their first seventeen games and yet finished far back
?the rwck. Hi.story May Repeat Itself.
ABOCfSfay 10, 1914, the baseball writers were marvelling and t
ing much the samo things ebout the Pirates as they are r
saying baout the Phillies. On May 9, to bo exact, tho Pirn
Were sailing along far in front with a percentage of .882, while the Pos
Braves were trailing with a percentage of .281, taring won just th
of their thirteen pames. But, oh, what a difference a few months ma
Every baseball fan knows where the Braves were in October. All t
Is not recalled for the purpose of discrediting the Phillies. They n
not follow the example of the Pirates and slip back to a place in the r<
but tho fact remains that followers of the Giants, to say nothing of
Othfr teams in the National League, have no reason to grow restive
to count the battlo over. -
EtVERYTHINQ else side. It looks as if Pat Moran would make
i m msclf as a big league manager. Judging from th
"^ play here last week In winning four straight, his men have bf
Inspired with that fighting spirit which counts so largely in any contt
Granting, however, that Grover Cleveland Alexander ranks with 1
greatest pitchers of all time, granting that Chalmers has come bark, s
that Mayer, Demaree and Rixey mako up a pitching staff of which a
manager could be proud, the team as a whole does not yet measure up
ekill or ubility with the Giant?. Braves, Cubs or Superbas. Things hi
been breaking right, the men have been aroused and encouraged by ih
very sucres?, bul the comparative newness of the infield is likely to
felt when the bumps which are sure to come are reached.
Fire and Spirit Count.
AMBITION, fire, spirit and rushing aggressiveness are domin?**
factor?, as Grantland Rice suggested last week, in the winni
of a pennant, but this statement is largely true only w:
other things being equal or reasonably equal, and by other things
meant baseball skill, offensively and defensively. Take a finished team
cold-blooded, more or less spiritless veterans who can hit and field and mat
It against a ragged team of youthful recruits with tons of spirit, war
loads of aggressiveness and furnaces of fire, who can hit and field only
ppols, and the result would he the same ninety-nine times out of a hunrlr
.?--the finished team would win. Given two nines, however, well match
!n playing strength, and the one with spirit, aggressiveness and all th
fort of thing would he the one on which to stake your money or yo
reputation. So It was with the Braves last year. So it was why these sar
Braves after fighting their way to the top in th? National League carril
the Athletic** down to four straight defeats in the world's series.
NOW It is my theory that the Giants are not too old and not t?
Fettled in their listless ways of 1914 to be short on spirit and lor
on safety first, when it comes to protecting their legs or their am
or their baseball reputation. In talking with a good judge on Wednesda
he made th? remark: "They've got their heads down and it don't lor
as if they'd ever get them up again." This opinion seems to be more ?
less general, hut I am not yet prepared to subscribe, to it. Certainly tl
breaks were not in their favor against Philadelphia, and the breaks coui
in baseball. It is my opinion, also, that the Oiants are better fortifu
than the Phillies and better fortified even than the Braves, and eventual
will win with the psychological stuff reasonably equal. If perchance tl
Fpirit is gone, the atmosphere takes on a blue tint.
Hope Springs Eternal
CHAULES H. EBBETS is not easily discouraged. He was almost f
iMi.fident on Thursday when the season formally opened in Brool
lyn as ho was when I had a talk with him throe weeks ago. "W
got off on the wrong foot," he said, "but the settling is bound to com
and when it does those fellows will win a l"t of games." The Superbi
do not look so strong on the field as they do on paper, but the material i
there, and once the rough edges are smoothed off, the fans across th
bridge are sure to have a strong rooting interest.
SPEAKING of Brooklyn, the advance stories of the war correspon?
ents wore not overdrawn to all appearances, so far as Schull
ut third base is concerned. He is one of those natural playet
who handles himself in that smooth way which makes hard chances i
the field look easy. He itandi up at the plate, too, with all the confident
in the world, and if looks count for anything, the Superbas hase capturo
a pri7.e. Great Chance for \ankees.
EVERY once in a while a baseball team strikes a bad day, and th
Yankees collided with one on Thursday, when they opened the!
i sea.-on at the Polo Grounds. It was not so much that they wer
beat?n -defeats are bound to come, sometimes too thickly, it is true?bu
because they were outmanoeuvred and outguessed, as it were, in two o
thr?*-e tight situations. Pipp let two plays get away from him whic
should have been easy outs, while Peckinpaugh and Sweeney wore ail
tinctly unsteady. -
MOREOVER, th? game was allowed to drag, and this usually leave
a had impression on the fans. It may he suggested, however, tha
Bill Donovan is not leading a forlorn hope. The loose playing o
Thursday had little or no effect on the outcome, as Shaw, the Washingto
hurler, pitched a masterly game and deserved full credit for the victor)
The Yankees suffered rather in the effect their work had on those wh
from all indications are so anxious to get out and root hard for the toan
The Yankees can he mighty popular this year if they can make a rea on
ably Strong fight. Never was opportunity brighter, and it is hoped, er?
felt, that it was just a had day in that opening how, und not tho Inheren
weakness which has beset the team for three or four years.
FOOTBALL at Columbia?now restored (for which thanks he given) ?
is to ho used for the purpose of proving or showing the need o
reform in other branches of sport on Morningsido Heights. Ac
cording to tho faculty committee, the return of foothall under cortai,
restrictions as to its management and its playing is the first step In th'
abolition of the old athletic system.
COLUMBIA is aiming high, and more power to the forces at work
An effort plainly is being made to approach an ideal in the wide
participation of a majority of the undergraduates in the college
department in all sports. Unfortunately, the experiment, so good as it is
is not likely to prove successful, and for the simple reason that the ideas oi
the undergraduates on what success means are almost sure to be nt dis
tinct variance with the ideas of those who are trying to work a reform. H
Is winning which counts, and a winning 'varsity team will do more tr
Btimulate and encourago the much desired general participation In any
particular branch of sport than all the sermons or iiieals in the world.
IT IS the plain purpose of the faculty committee in lifting the ban against
football to use the apparent demand for this game as a lever against
commercialism and overindulgence. It seems almost unfair for I 0
lumbia, the biggest university in the country, to be cut off from association
In football with those colleges and universities with winch she rightfully
belongs, hut it had to be done, with the plan in view, and the expriment
will be watched with interest. While hating to express it, the feeling is
Strong that the enthusiasm of the undergraduates for football \v:'l not he

FROM all appearances, the Northeastern Basketball League, made up
of Wilhams, We-deyan. Union and Colgate, with Amherst on the
point of admission, is on the rocks. This is cause for regret. Col?

Conn., to make the circuit altogether attractive to the New England col?
