BVEKING LEDGER PHIlJABLPHIA SATURDAY, MARCH 25,. 1916.
IF HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, FRANK MORAN WILL DEFEAT JESS WILLARD IN THE RIM
ALL HEAVYWEIGHT RING
CROWNS HAVE BEEN LOST
BY POPULAR FAVORITES
Corbett Was On Short End When He Defeated
Peter Jackson in Great Sixty-one
THOSE who are placing their money on Frnnlc Moran to snntch tho world's
heavyweight crown from Jess Wlllard tonight at Madison Hquaro Garden,
Now York, may bo taking tho short end as. far as tho "dope" on tho two con
testants la concerned, but they have n. peculiar fact In ring history on which to
Imjso their hopes for victory wo refer to tho fact that Wlllard Is tho favorite.
There has novcr been a great heavyweight battlo In which tho challenger
won that tho title defender was not a favorite In tho betting and was not gen
erally deemed nn easy winner by tho pugilistic fans and majority of experts.
Looking back over prize ring annals we find that from the day Jim Corbett
beat Peter Jackson In his mcmorablo battlo In San Francisco, which went 61
rounds, until Wlllard knocked out Jack Johnson April 6 of last year In Havana,
the heavyweight belt has hot changed hands except to tho challenger who was
not considered the favorite.
Eight Great Battles Went to Challengers
In all classes and weights It has been tho rulo that tho winning challenger
was on tho short end of tho betting. Of course, It Is not truo that heavyweight
fighters, or any other class, Invariably lose because they aro favorites, but tho big
men have, without exception, lost at no tlmo excepting when they were
James J. Corbett defeated Peter Jackson at San Francisco in Gl rounds
on May 21, 1831 (Jackson favorite).
Corbett knocked out John L. Sullivan In tho 21st round at New Orleans on
September 7, 1882 (Sullivan favorlto).
Bob Fltzslmmon3 knocked out Corbett In the 14th round nt Carson City,
Nov., March 17, 1897 (Corbett favorite).
Jim Jeffries knocked out Fltzsimmons In tho 11th round at Coney Island,
June 9, 1S99 (Fltzsimmons favorlto). v
Jack Johnson defeated Tommy nurns at Sydney, Australia, December 2G,
J90S (Burns whs favorite). This fight was stopped In tho 14th round by tho
Johnson knocked out Jeffries at Reno, Nev In tho lGth round on July 4,
1010 (Jeffries favorite).
Jes3 Wlllard knocked out Johnson In Havana, Cuba, April t, 1915, In tho
tith round (Johnson favorlto).
And Yet On the Other Hand
As remarked, tho mere fact that Wlllard Is tho favorite docs not menn that
Moran Is going to win. But it does mean that history may repeat itself, as
It often does, and Moran will bo the new champion by midnight.
Moran himself declares that ho will win. Whether ho really believes this
or whether his statement was mado In accordance with ring precedent, re
mains to be seen. This reminds ono of a peculiar fact about prize fighters. There
lias never been a championship battle fought beforo which both tho contenders
did not loudly boast of their ability to win. This Is contrary to most other
sports. For Instance, football coaches and captains Invariably send out "bear"
stories. They deploro their inability to oven mako a fair showing; their men
aro always, according to them, In a state of health bordering on constitutional
breakdown; in short, they haven't a chance to win, they say.
Last fall Pat Moran would not have predicted victory over the Red Sox
for the world, and whilo Bill Carrlgan appeared confident, ho did not say his
team would win until after the third game of the series.
But these gentlemen of tho ring defy tho universe. Moran, Wlllard and all
their followers aver tlint tho two big fellows nre In tho best shape of their carcors
and each camp shouts Its conJldenco from tho housetops meaning the black
typo of tho various sports pages.
A'iolin Playing1 Cure for "Glnss Arm"
Hero's a tip to pitchers and It doesn't cost a cent. If your salary arm
turns to glass, don't worry. Just grab n violin and fiddle away. That's what
Fred Goodhart. a pitcher on the Dickinson College team, did, and his arm Is as
good as ever. Goodhart developed a "dead wing" In 1914 nnd tried evory remedy
recommended to him, but they were all unavailing.
Goodhart retired for the season and tried his whip again last spring, and in
one game he discovered that his arm was useless. So ho retired again, During
tho past winter Goodhart has played the violin in a Carllslo (Pa.) orcHcstra, and
In practice a few days ago found out that ho could throw a ball as fast and
curve It ns well as he ever could. Therefore, he says that In the extended arm
motion required In playing the violin lies tho secret of his discovery. Would not
bo a bad Idea for Pat Moran to try the violin on Billy Klllefcr If his arm doesn't
Eastern Athletes Must "Watch Their Step"
With Lcland Stanford and tho University of California preparing to send
teams to tho Intercollegiate track nnd field championships to bo held In tho Har
vard Stadium In May It is well for tho Eastern nthletes to pay some attention
to the performances of tho Pacific Coast nthletes. Thero aro a great many per
sons who believe that all of tho best athletic talent Is to be found this side of
the Rockies but this is far from tho case. Thero are many stellar track and
field performers In tho far West, many of them as good as the best In tho East
ern colleges, and soma of them better.
In a recent meet of the Stanford athletes Fred Murray, the captain of the
team, ran the 100 yards In 10 seconds and 220 yards In 21 4-5 seconds. It will
toko mighty swift running on the part of any Easterner to beat this speeding.
Murray Is no flash. He showed his worth In tho A. A. U. championships. Ho
Is an even better hurdler than a sprinter; said to be an even better hurdler than
Fred Kelly, and Philadclphlans know well how good Kelly was in his performances
In the relay games.
Court Tennis Becoming Very Popular
Although court tennis is tho moat dlflicult of all games to play, It Is quite
remarkable, that it Is much more popular at tho Racquet Club than racquets.
One reason for this Is that tennis can bo played by men of nil ages, whereas
to play racquets seriously ono must have youth on one's side. There are
othar considerations In favor of tennis. For one thing, It Is not quite so expen
sive tu racquets and It Is really much more scientific. Furthermore, Jay
Gould lias cast a glamour over the game, and in splto of the fact that they aro
hopelessly beaten, players of nil degrees of proficiency aro only too glad to meet
This year tho open champion of tho world entered the club champion
ship, tho doubles championship, the singles handicap and tho doubles handi
cap. After playing in the first round of the singles handicap he withdrew
because he found that it was too difllcult to play In four events nnd train
"Punch" Fairs for his coming match with Walter Klnsella.
That Gould will win all three of the events he Is in goes without saying,
but Jifs opponents will In no way regret that they had the honor of playing
in xne nnai rouna. as a cnampion court tennis player, Gould stands pre
eminent. His Influence on the game has been very great and his reputation
has undoubtedly Influenced many men to take up the game.
The matches In the tournaments during the last two weeks have brought
to light one or two excellent players. D. L. Hutchinson, 3d, greatly added to
his reputation In his match with W. II. T, Huhn in the semifinal round of the
club championship nnd tho fact that he made Huhn play five strenuous sets
proves that he Is a playen-who will have to be reckoned with in the future.
Rather remarkable was the success of C. B. Jennings in the Class B singles
handicap. Having only taken up the game a week or so before, Jennings
went right through the tournament and gained a highly creditable victory over
Stalllnga Has Jjtopped Developing Players
When Wilholt, the much-touted slugging outfielder, Joined the Boston
JJraves In training camp the other day the fact was recalled that there were
only two men under Stalllnga who were minor league experiments and being
developed by hiro; that all of his regulars had been developed In other league
teams. This Is a startling condition, In view of the fact that Stalllnga when
manager of the Yankees was distinctly a developer of young ball players and
when relieved of his post had more good young ball players In hla team than
any manager, possibly barring Connie Mack.
It may be that Stalllngs decided that the business of developing ball
players yraS too Blow and the results too unsatisfactory, In view of the brief
ana quickly Interrupted tenure of office In New York. When he Joined the
Braves he completely reversed his former methods and began to pick from
other teams In order to get quick results. He wan successful at that time.
Tba question Is. Will he bo able to come back again this year with another
aggregation of pickups such as Rudolph, Gowdy, Red Smith, Sherwood Magee
PI Konetchy, Dick Egan, Allen and Snodgrass? '

Red and Blue Baseball
Team Has Not Been on
Diamond This Year
GAME IN ANNAPOLIS
The University of Pennsylvania base
ball team plnycd Its first game of tho sea
son this afternoon ngnlnst tho Navy, nt
Annapolis, without having had a single
outdoor practice in preparation. Coach
Hoy Thomns declares that never In his
experience ns a baseball coach has ho
met such unusual conditions. Last year
tho men were outdoors the last week In
January, and, with the exception of a
few days, were able to work on the out
door diamond continuously from that time
on. This year, on the contrary, cold, rain
and snow have kept tho men within the
gymnasium with the exception of a few
occasions on which they were able to
"play catch" on the sidewalks outside the
But in splto of the trouble the men
have had to practice, Coach Thomas feels
certain that no will have a nrst-claRS team,
and even looked for a victory over the
Navy today. The battery looks to bo par
ticularly good. In Swlgler Coach Thomas
thinks he has the pitching sensation of
the year. This youngster, like most ot the
other men picked for tho first game, was
a member of tho freshman team last year.
He is a right-hander and has all kinds of
speed and good control. The other two
pitchers who look good are Cross, also
a member of last year's freshman team,
and Cromwell. Tho latter was In tho Uni
versity last year, but was Ineligible on
account of conditions.
Behind the bat the Quakers also have
three unusual men. Gilmore. In par
ticular, Is rated as good in his position
as Swlgler is In his. Hoch, also playing
his first year on the varsity, Is second
choice, while Dolan, a member of the
varsity squad last year. Is very good.
With the exception of Moore at third
base, the entire infield is made up of last
year's freHhmen. Smith is the selection
for first base, Todd for second base and
Wray for shortstop Howard Berry, who
has been dividing his time between base
ball and track, is picked for centre field,
but lie can play in the infield If necessary.
M unlock and Sullivan are considered the
best of the other outfielders
This year's term is strong In all de
partments nnd unusually strong just
where last year's team was weakest That
was in the pitcher's box. Thero was not
a dependable pitcher In tho lot last year,
H. IC Wallace being the best. With a
dependable pitching staff, good catchers,
an average field team, Coach Thomas Is
now concerned chiefly as to the hitting
ability of his men. If they come up to
his expectations in this particular, he feels
sure that Pennsylvania has an even chance
to win a baseball championship

If thero is any argument at all as to

If Mornn, a game, aggressive, hard-hitting,
200-pound Irishman, is unable to

Moran, next to tho champion, is easily

Moran, if beaten by Wlllard, could still

he could also be used ob a test for Fulton.

Amateur vs. Pro.

vs. Professionals? Every ono knows
that It is absolutely Impossible to
frame nny Just and Intelligible rule.
And. moreover, every one knows that
at the bottom the distinction between
the two classes Is only another form
of the well-known alibi. It a man
is better than you are, he is better,
and that la the end of It. Whether
he puts in more time at practice, or
he has money, or what not, may be
ono reason why he wins. But the
real underlying reason 1b that he Is
a better man at mat game, xou
can't make a swan out of a duck for
all the money In the world.

No. 5 Robert A. Gardner ,
IF IT had not been for Robert A. Gard
ner, of Hlnedale, Western golf In an
amateur way would have been very much
below par for the last 10 years.
Clmndtor Egan took good care of West
ern laurels In 1904 arid 1905. But slnco
Egan's last rise to tho top, 11 years hgo,
Bob Gardner has been the only Western
entry nblo to finish first ln an amateur
championship, and Gardner has turned
the trick twice.
In nnd Out
Gardner does not havo nearly the same
tlmo to glvo away to his game that others
have. Thero are long stretches through
tho summer when ho Is only nblo to got
nway on a Saturday nfternoon or a Sun
day, nnd when ho Is finable to tako part
In any tournament.
This Is Inrcrnti Fncmnriat,1 fn, iu i

amateur championship; In 1910 he failed
to qualify nt Brookllno. In 1914 Gard

Gardner turns nnd wins another chnm
ptonshlp whon ho had already been listed
ns a one-year' champion; that is, not good
enough to repeat.
After summing things up, one might
say, In nil truth, that three features ox

least a driving Iron, Gardner takes out
