EVENING- LEDGER-PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21v, ,1914.
DOOIN'S CLUB PLAYS ST. LOUIS HERE TODAY-MACKMEN EJNGAGE CLEVELAND NINE
AT WINNING CLIP
Won Eight Games Out of
Nine in Seven Days, Hav
ing Piled Up 50 Runs on
82 Base Hits.
The past week tins been one of al
most perfect prosperity In the rank
nf the Phillies, In I his time the Daisies
have played nine Raines on the home
grounds and have won eight of tliem.
Last Monday Afternoon the (limits
were hero for a double header and,
after tho local men had lost the open
Ins tilt, thev went after their pennant-rtspl-lni
opponents, completely batter
ing down their defense nnd winning out
easily, 10-G. That was the signal for
the bet riily sprint of tho year.
Thl victory o"r New York seemed
to out new life ."to the men nnd they
havo hen plnylng a b'nnd of bull from
that dato na, which, If kept tip for
three, weeks t one given period In the
season, would practically have cinched
the flag fo them provided of course
they had played fairly well nt other
Just what has happened to the l'hll
lies to wake them up 30 completely I
hard to say. livery one who has
watched the local National Leaguers
realizes that they hav tho latent
power. Tho trouble was that the recipe
for transforming their potential energy
lrto kinetic could not be discovered.
Tor the tune Iwlntr, at least, this trans
formation liaa taken place, but unfor
tunately the exact cause Is hard to as
certain. Possibly each man realized
simultaneously that he was not putting
his wVole ability Into the same. That
uou.d be sutllclcnt to explain their
splendid work of the past seven days.
Outside of the feeling of genernl sat
isfaction over the eight consecutive vie
. torles. local fans rejoice with drover
Alexander at his success. The Invinci
ble right-hander has brought his win
ning mark up to 2"i games, two of
which wore won In the past week.
Those IS winning shots (lied Into the
ranks of tho allied enemy give Alexan
der $1000, the bonus promised him by
the Philadelphia club If he would win
2i games for them during the season
Moro strongly than anything else do
the figures for tho week Indicate the
flying pace which the Phillies have been
setting. Last Monday morning tho
locals were In sixth place nnd were
exactly nine games behind the Cub's,
the club which nt that time stood In
fourth notch. Today the Phils are In
fifth place, but what is more Important
than this Is that they have cut down
their distance from the first division to
four and a half games, that is, they
have split tho lead of the fourth place
team in two In the course of a week.
The Cardinals, who have been replaced
In third position by the Cubs, are not
only just four and a half games ahead
ot he Phillies, but. judging by tlu
brand of ball put up by the contending
clubs here on Saturday, they are apt
to have their lead rut down to two and
a half games before departing.
This afternoon and tomorrow the
Phillies and Cardinals meet In their rlnal
contests of the year. Th games will
begin at 3 o'clock at the National League
Park. Should the locals continue their
pplendld playing of last week they will
have better than a fighting chance for
the first division, where on individual
merit they certainly should finish.

GOLF TITLE AMONG
JUNIORS AT STAKE
AT MERION C. CLUB
Event of Importance Today
to Usher in Week of Sport,
Strenuous Bit of Work
Was Had Last Week.
Last week was one of tho most Btrentt
oils of the season from a golfing point of
view, tho open championship of Philadel
phia at the Whltemarsii Valloy Country
Club and the Invitation tournament of
the Philadelphia Cricket Club at St. Mar
tin's providing some splendid sport. The
open championship brought out the best
field In tho history of the event, although
as usual very few amateurs competed.
The success of the tournament was un
iloubtcdiy due to the fnct that play was
extended to T2 holes Instead of 36, as In
previous years, nnd that the prl7.e money
amounted to tiOO. Tom McNamnrn, of
Boston, gained a very popular vlctoi v
with a fine score of 302 strokes for the 72
holes. Not a single local professional
malingcd to get In the money, ulthoilgh
Jack Campbell, of Old York road, led the
field at the end of the first day's piny.

GRIDIRON NEWS GLEANED FROM LEADING COLLEGE CAMPS
By EDWARD R. BUSHNELL
The Carlisle Indians ushered in the 1914
football season on Saturday In their usual
vigorous manner when they beat Albright
College by the score of 30 to 0. After hav
ing had nearly two weeks of cool, bracing
weather for their preliminary practice
they had to endure a hot, sultry after
noon for their first game, condition
which were most unsatisfactory for good
football. The Indians' score was five
points less than they made against this
Itame team Inst year, hut the Hodmen
fumbled away nn opportunity for another
touchdown. When those facts are con
sidered, toaether with the statement that
the visitors had as much weight as the
Indians, we know nt least thai th Indians
are no wenker than they were last yenr.
The coniiiK ek will sen the first foot
bnll games by all the members of the
old Yule centre. But Itutgers also hod
good material, and since Sanford is at
New Brunswick once moro Rutgers will
bo disappointed not to hold Trlnceton to
a close score again.
Dartmouth found the Massachusetts
Agricultural College an unusually active
antagonist last year nnu was able to
win by a score of only 13 to 3. Dart
mouth opens with the same eleven on
Saturdny. and the wearers of the Green
hope to roll up a more respectable score.
They ought to do It. too, because their
wonderful backfleld of last year Is In
tact nnd they have had the advantage
of more than three weeks of practice.
Because of the prominent place Dart
mouth holds on Pennsylvania's schedule
this year the Quakers will wtch their
games by all the members of the 1 ,, ,, ,h , !,!, ,,,. ,.,.

team which the Crimson beat last year
rather easily by the score of 1J to 0. In

Last year Penn beat the men from the
famous battlefield by the score of .13

There will be a lot of speculation all
this week to learn what men Head Coach
Brooke will pick for his initial line-up.
Probably Brooke himself won't Know un
til the day boforo the game. The sifting
process Is still going on, and the merits
and demerits of every player are being
carefully analyzed not, only by Brooke,
hut by his assistants. But the chances
are that the first eleven men to line up
tat Pennsylvania will be last year's reg
ulars or substitutes as far as that Is
possible. There are some new men who
in practice promise to be much better
than the 1913 regulars, but for the most
part they will not get Into the rfny until
the game Is well under way,
The QuaJter coaches have reason to feel
well pleased with the results of their
first week's work, for they have accom
plished more than any one. thought pos
sible n so short a time. N'ot only have
they taught the rudiments of the game
fairly well to a big squad of candidates,
but they have carefully studied and tested
the merits nf all the men and sorted them
out until they have gotten all the can
didates working for the positions for
which they seem best fitted.
From tnckle to tackle Pennsylvania has
available a line which will average close
to SIX) pounds per man. As far as weight
and strength are concerned, the men re
ferred to are about all that could be de
sired. But these qualifications are only
about one-half of what will be required.
In addition to weight an dstrength. they
must display speed and football sense.
Some of Hie men who now look big
enough and strong enough to push a
house over may have to be discarded
yet for men weighing SO or 40 pounds less,
because modern football requires men of
speed and cleverness. About all that can
be said of most o fthls quad of linemen
U that they are making progress. It Is
Impossible to be much more specific now.
An odd situation exists as far ns the
ends and backs are concerned. The qual
ities necessary to play on the ends or in
the backfleld are much the same. Ever
since the practice opened the coaches
have been In doubt concerning some of
the men. whether they would be better
on the ends or In the back field At any
time they might be shifted back and
forth, and It is to be hoped that when
these shifts are made they will be made
with the same intuition or luck as when
Roy Mercer first camo out for football.
When he arrived the coaches resolved to
make an end out of him. but a train of
back field Injuries made It necessary to
put him In the back field. He almost In-
fair end was converted Into a scintillat
How the ends and backs will be played
this year will depend upon the way the
candidates develop. With an oversupply
of capable back tho surplus can be used
as end candidates and vice versa.
Enough was shown In Saturday's first
scrimmage to strengthen tho Impression
created by their work all week that Got
wals and Matthews, who played half
back and fullback on last year's fresh
man team, can only be kept off the team
by the nppenrance of some unusually
high-class backs. Ootwals, while a
student at the Central High School, was
a man of great speed and cleverness. He
Is faster and stronger than over now
and ought to be a splendid back. Roy
Mercer, who coached tho freshman eleven
Inst year, declared thnt Matthews, who
captained and played fullback on this
tenm, was one of the best freshman
backs he had ever seen. Matthews
weighs about 190 pounds, but he seems
to be the fastest man for his weight on
The Penn coaches are still working on
the problem of quarterback. Irwin,
Bnllou and Merrill are the favorites now,
but It Is a toss up which one will be the
final selection. Tho coaches are giving
Irwin every chance In the world to make
good. Bnllou has had the most experi
ence of tho three and may develop Into
the best man when the critical games
With the return today of Avery and
Bolger, Inst year's halfbacks, the list of
varsity candidates at Pennsylvania is com
pleted. These men wilt be a strong addi
tion to the squad. Avery, while a little
Inconsistent Inst year, showed great stuff
at times. With the advantage of his
year of experience he should be more de
pendable this year. His speed aid de
fensive strength may cause him to be
tried out at end.
Bulger was in poor physical condition
last year, liut at that showed good prom
ise. He Is also a punter of no mean abll
Ity as well as a drop kicker.
While last weok was spent chiefly In
conditioning work, the really heavy prac
tice will start this week, with plenty of
scrimmage and tackling drill. The num
ber of men out for each position arouses
some bitter scrimmages.
No very good line on the make-up of
the team can be gained yet. It Is all de
pendent upon the men under fire. A man
may be whirlwind in signal practice but
yet lack the stuff In scrimmage.
The scruhs under Coach Harold Gas
ton have been developing Into a unified
team and may be expected to put up their
usual scrappy game. In Berry, who Is
Ineligible for varsity, Gaston will have
a valuable man. He kicks them a mile
nnd Is a streak with the ball, be
sides being a wonderful field general. He
Is also a good track man, having several
times done the half Inside two minutes.
PRIXCETO.V, NJ., Sept. 31.The
Princeton football squad will get down
to real work today In preparation for the
opening game of the season. All the
efforts of the coaches are concentrated
on developing the open style of play, by
which they hope to defeat Harvard and
Yale this year. Coaches Herring, Pen
field and Ames are Arm believers In this
style of play, and It will be continued
next year, even though the Tigers lose
their big game's this fall.
