HE WASHINGTON HERALD. THURSDAY, JANUARY 16. 1913.
WHY ENGLAND IS FAILING
IN ITS ATHLETIC WORK
Ernie Hjertberg, Swede's Trainer, in London, on Way
Here, Tells Britons What Is Wrong With
Their Cherished Customs.
Sweden Is already well forward la her
preparation for the 191 Olympiad, ana
It will not be the fault ot their head
adviser. Ernie HJertbertr. if the Swedes
fail to make another bound forward at
Berlin four years hence.
Much spade work was done prior to
the Stockholm sames. and even though
in the purely athletic events Sweden did
not take so high a place as had been
hoped, mainly owing; to the remarkable
performance of the athletes from Ameri
ca and Finland, still there was evidence
of remarkable advancement In the stand
ard of Swedish athletic performance.
Hjertberg. having cot matters in line
for the openlnc of the Swedish athletic
reason Tiext summer. Is now In London
on his way to America, which' has 1cen
his home for many years. The coach
has well earned his vacation, but no
dcubt he will study any new develop
ments which are showlnt; themselves
here. What there Is the Swedes' train
er knows and Is as well able to build
from that basis as any man In the world.
Talklnfr to an ErsIIsh writer ot sports.
HJertben: was outspoken on the need for
a lone and careful preparation on tho
part of Britain if she Is to regain -any
of her lost supremacy In track and Held
"You must have a definite system of
teaching and coachlnK in athletics If you
want to Ket anywhere near the Ameri
can standard, he said. "In America
every school, every college, has its ath
letic coach or manager. lie looks after
the youngsters, and Is able to devote his
whole time to the consideration of every
thing appertaining to success In each
particular event. That Is what they are
aiming at in Sweden. They are starting
with the schools, organizing athletics In
them: next among tho Boy Scouts, who
have an organization of their own; then
In the colleges and univrsltles; also In
the army. The idea is so far as is pos
sible to teach all these young athletes
how to make the best use of themselves
In each partlculaT event.
"I have studied with Interest the way
you are progressing in England. For
Instance, your Ideas of amateur coaches
where can you find the men with the
necessary time to' devote to the subject?
America has 'found It impossible to or
ganize athletics without the aid of the
professional coach. There you find all
the rnarlics of the different colleges anx
ious tn turn to advantage any little point
In favor of their men. A club or college
coach gets' hold of a good boy. He knows
he is good, and yet there Is something
lacking. The coach "will give nouns hj
days of thought and attention to find
out ihe weak Dolnt Could any man
engaged in business spare the time for
that! Not without neglecting nis uu
"What are the prospects In Sweden?
Wh. tmcui! When.il. flrst took up my
nosltlon there- were only a few real
rlaa men. hut bv next season there
will be many more to pick from, and that
Is how you breed your champions. The
immense advantage the I'nlted States
had In Stockholm was that they had so
many good men. I had only a few. and
Jt usually worked out that If there was
one little slip, one error of Judgment,
the Swede went out.
In the L00O metres, for Instance, there
was Ernest Wilde. I don't expect you
to agreo with me. but I think he was as
good a man as any in the race, but ho
had not competed against the same class,
and he failed. America had three great
runners Jones. Klvlat. and Taber all
within a yard or so of one another. II
was the same In the SflO metres. Mere
dith. Shcppard. and Davenport almost In
a line, and all beating the record.
"In England you have the material:
you have the numbers. With America
in view, and her enormous number of
athletes. I should not like to say that
your raw material is the best In the
world, but It Is as pool as any and In
most instances It remains raw material.
You want some plan to develop It: a
strong head to guide tho whole system
of athletics and coaches In the clubs,
colleges, nnd schools, who know what Is
wanted In an athlete and will bring it
Best Scoring Machines
Generally Win Pennants
Not to very long ago Arthur Devlin,
who achieved fame as one of the great
est third basemen of his day while with
the New York Giants, and who is spend
ing his declinng years with the Boston
Braves, made the statement that cham
pionships are won by good pitchers.
To a certain extent Devlin Is right in
this contention, but there Is abundant
evidence to prove that it takes some
thing more than clever hurling to land
tho gonfalon. Figures on the total of
runs scored by the first four teams in the
American league from 1301 to 1511, inclu
sive show that in five seasons the cham
pionship club led the league in amassing
tallies, that It was a very close second
two seasons, and that in only one year
was there a 'consplcuous-cxeeptlon""to the
rule. "Most tallies, most victories."
The year 1900 was the most conspicuous
exception to the general rule that the
winning club in the race was the big
scorer. The White Sox got their name
of the "hitlcss wonders" In that season,
winning the pennant with 570 tallies,
while the Naps, who finished third, made
OB. and the Yanks, who were second,
compiled S. The Athletics were fourth
in both departments.
I-hiladelphla won the pennant In 1510
without scoring quite so many runs as
the second place Yanks, the records be
ing TO and 67), respectively. Boston was
third In the manufacture of scores, with
640. while the Tigers attained one notch
higher on the percentage scale, with only

'OS Anseles, Cal.. Jan. 1.". Frank
Leroy Chance. Frank Farrell'i chief hope
in the reorganization of the New York
Highlanders, is liusyinp himself Just now
with smudge tiro poll, and jack frost on
his ranch near Glcndora. When seen to
day he seemed more disponed to talk of
the orange crop than of haseball and the
1913 prospects of the Highlanders.
"J have to laugh when I hear it said
that I'll bring the Highlanders through
the season to the head of the percentage
column from the position they held last
ear," said Chance. "I'ennant prospects
In 1311 or Uli would not be o bad. but
the team Is all run down, and It will re
quire nt least one season to bring ft up
into top form."
The new Highlander manager thinks
there' Is little to choose between the two
leagut-s In the matter of 1313 prospects,
but the American has by far the better
organization. In his opinion, and there is
better feeling among the clubs. They are
more ready to help each other out than
In the older league, and Jthcro Is not the
bickering and hard feeling.
ro nail player should stay with one
team for more than five years at the out-
said Chance. "If he does, he Is
sure to get into a. rut. I think an occa
sional change Is a good thing.
"I don't yet. know Just what changes
will be made In the New York team.
Hal Chase Is the only one of the team
whom I have seen play, and that was
years ago right hero In California. Far
rell says Chase wants to play nt second
base this season, and If ho makes good
at that station probably I will play first.
The fact that Hal Is a left-hander will
handicap him somewhat, but ho Is so
fast that I think that he will manage all

Mayor Fitzgerald of Boston, last fall
announced through the newspapers that
the Ited Sox would have to get rid of
Robert McKoy. the club secretary or
else he personally would see that thero
was no more American league basetaii
in the Hub. '
This threat was lodged because of a
mtx-up during the' world's series, when
the Royal Rooters attended the seventh
game, marched to the Arid behind a
brass band and when they reached the
reserved section allotted them, found
the scats occupied. Tho mistake It was
charged to Secretary McRoy.
Jlcnoy, who for years had been Presi
dent Han Johnson's right hand man. and
now owns stock In the Boston club, had
no Intention of resigning because Mayor
Fitzgerald kicked over the traces, and
the mayor himself had a fat chance
"canning him" with Ban Johnson In the
role of McRoy's sponsor.
Boston fans complained last summer
that when the new Fenway Park was
thrown open to the public, the bleacher
seats wero so far away from home plate
that In order to see the game It was
necessary to use spy glasess. But for
the fact that the Red Sox won the
American league pennant the 1911 sea
son would have been a disastrous one
Mayor Fitzgerald's ultamatum at.ent
the discharging of Robert McRoy avail
ed nothing, for little Robert will be
right on the Job In 1313. but something
was accomplished In the nature of a
compromise when It wbb yesterday an
nounced that he Boston club would
erect 4.000 additional seats where fans
could see the game without the aid of
rowerful lenses nnd pay no more than
IT. rents a seat for the privilege.
The Royal Rooters of Boston were
roughly handled during the seventh
game when their seats were denied
them nnd Immediately started a. lioycott
with the rt-sult that next day, when the
world s series battle was staged.

Moral It doesn't pay to Ignore the
"Biddy" McPhee Talks.
"MiHlern ball players particularly
pitchers are too much petted and pam
pered," sa)s "King Bid" Mcl'hce, one of
the greatest ball players the game eer
knew, and tho Idol of Cincinnati fans of
fifteen or twenty years ago.
"In our day we never thought It worth
while t ) earn- more than eleven or
twelve plaer.. Our pitchers never com
plained if It v-as necestiry to work
every other day. Old Charley Rad
bourne worked ever)" day a greater part
of the seaaon. The pitchers pitched
themselves out, and the wear and tear
was Just as hard then as It Is now. In
fact, the games wero longer and they
actually had lo pitch more balls. They
pitched for strike-outs and put all they
had or have now on the ball.
"Pitchers won't be right If they don't
work often. Four or live at most are
plenty for n minor league club. Those
who are inclined to be wild can work

lesson and at a bitter cost. It Is no
longer posslblo to booze and dissipate
and get to the top. That Is one good
thing about competition. It was impos
sible to replaco the stars of twenty
yrars ago. and they did what they
pleased. Sow the fear that a younger
man may usurp the star's place holds
the latter to a strict and temperate life.
There is no other game like it under
the sun. Nothing compares with base

Donaldson's Great Effort.
One of the most Interesting races in
tho history of the sport In England was
pulled off on New Year's Day. Hera's
the description from a London news
paper: Jack Donaldson's performance In
tho 300-yard handicap sprinting race- at
Powderhall. England, on New 'Year's
Day. in which he ran" in 304 seconds is
still the talk of athletic circles the' world
over. TJilrty years to the day. Harry
uutcnens in the very tamo race and
heat, ran the 300 yards in 30 seconds, and
mat record still exists.
Donaldson's time was made In the sec
ond heat. In which there were eight start
ers, and which also proved to be entirely
too many to allow a record-breaking per
formance. Tho field bunched about
eighty yards from the finish and Don
aldson had a hard time in getting
through. As it was, second was the best
he could do, and this didn't get him lit
Uutcnens was h, starter In the heat He
Is fifty-five years of age. It wasn't with
any thought of winning that the veteran
started. It was his desire to be in the
race so that he might say If Donaldson
broke his record that he was there. It
Is the feeling that If Donaldson hadn't
slowed up for the bunch he would have
equalled or bettered Ifutchens mark.
There Is no doubt now In the minds of
English sportsmen that Donaldson can
run the 300 yards In 30 seconds. Believe
us, that Is fast sprinting.
