HOWUNG N. Y. FANS PLACE HOPE IN MATTY
OLD TIME DASH MARKS PLAY
OF BLUE AND GOLD SQUAD
What Coach Perkins said about
the Aberdeen game being a good
lesson to the members of the
Tacoroa team is showing Itself to
be the caae, for Tuesday when the
coach sent his men aigainst the
second team for a scrimmage of
between ten and fifteen minutes,
they piled up about seven touch
downs and one safety. The sec
ond team, on the other hand,
was unable to make yardage
once. The first team made the
first touchdown within two min
utes of the start and the second
one minute later. Four minutes
was the longest time it took them
to make a score. All this was
without Coblentz and l.arsen In
the line-up. The old dash was
back. Rushmer, Espeland and
Johnson showed speed and spirit
in the halfback positions. "Doble"
Sehumake is beginning to real
ize the error of his breaking
training rules and he tore through

The High school plays Olym
pia Saturday in the stadium.
Olympla put up a good game last
y«ar and is said to be stronger
this year. Olympia also lias the
services of "Puss" Colbert for
coach and Tacomann know what
"Pubs" ran do. Rut whether the
capital city boys show up strong
or not there is not going to be the
same kind of a showing on the
part of the blue and gold that
there was last Saturday. Men
who refuse to train will have to
give way to some of the strong
substitutes. Coach Perkins test
their condition yesterday after
noon following practice by order
ing all the players to run around
the track once and smokers twice.
Nobody ran twice, but there are
some who should have.

again.
BIG JOB SET FOR
MIGHTY CHRISTY
By Grantland Rice.
BOSTON, Oct. 9.—lt's now up to "Good Old
Matty." »vor the first time in New York's post sea
son baseball history, Christy Mathewson, the main
spring of the Giants' twirling squadron, adorned the
ranch in the first game, instead of occupying the
spotlight on the firing line
For the first time In Manhat-
tan's post season history, too, the
Giants lost the jump by allowing
Joe Wood and his teammates to
take the first game. Today Matty
tries to retrieve what the younger
generation tossed aside. It will
be some Job, but there are thou-
Kands of baseball fans and fan
ettes throughout the country who
believe that "Big Six" will be
equal to the task.
Wood pitched and Boston won.
That tells the story of yesterday's
THE TAiJOMA TIMES
battle. But "Smokey Joe" was
doomed until his pals rushed »H'l
denly in and, led by "Puignaclus"
Trig Speaker, yanked him safely
out of trouble.
The edse lies with the Red
Sox now, but "Muggsy" McCraw
and his fighting aggregation won't
admit It. But the flrat{'. gjime
counts and counts big, fu»t the
same. It hag imbued the f l»c< d
boys with confidence ana that's
the big punch in a ilght 'for the
world's baseball championship.
"Ozark Jeff" Tesroau 1% almost
sure to pitch better ball (fc^'next
time h© starts, but then J A Wood
is, too. Neither was in top form
in the first game, although the
Giant mastodon cut a brilliant
streak for the first five innings.
The Boston players are ex
tremely confident because they
uneet Tesreau, the "terrible mam
moth" whom they feared above
all the other Giants. The Giants
also are confident, because they
not only see in the Red Sox a less
powerful club than the Athletics,
but because they discovered they
can hit Wood, who lacks the cool,
calculating poise of Bender, Plank
and Coombs This trio was sim
ply inhuman but Wood has shown
that while he is game and flashy,
his system Ib composed of a net
work of nerves and that he is
likely to become entangled In
them at any stage of the game.
Boston won the opener because
it had the punch in the pinch—
both at bat and in the box. When
the show-down came Jake Stahl
had somebody there with the big
kick. It was either Wood, Speak
er, Hooper or YerQces, but there
was always the right man in the
right spot with the right goods.
The Giants carried the more
brilliant flashes, but they oould
not run out their string. At the
big spot they fell short—but only
by an eyelash. Tesreau had but
one more man to handle in the
fatal seventh with two out —but
he could not handle him. The
Giants needed but one more hit
in the ninth—.they didn't get it..
Boston had but one opening; it
was enough. The Giants had three
—they weren't enough. And
there, gentle reader, you ara.

IDAH McGLONE GIBSON TALKS
TO JAKE STAHL-PLAYER-MGR.
"THEN YOU DO GET MASH NOTES?" I ASKED MANAGER
STAHL. "NOT SINCE I WAS MARRIED," HE SAID.
I'.y Idah McGlone Gibson.
"I'd like to see Mr. Garland Stahl," I said to the hotel clerk.
"Whom?" he asked, in turn. Yes, he said "whom."
"The manager of the Boston Red Sox," I explained.
"Oh! You mean 'Jake' Stahl," he said. "Boy! Page 'Jake*
Stahl."
In a moment a young man, who might have been anything from
a banker to a professional man, came forward. His splendid phy
sique Impressed me. His straight brows and firmly set lips gave
hi tanned face a look of determination, but his splendid forehead
relieved it of tubbornness. His clothes were well fitting, but cut
with greater breadth than the altest "form fitting" style.
And this was Manager Garland Stahl, the man who had taken
the American league championship away from the foxy Connie Mack
and who was preparing to seize the world's championship. I had
come all the way to Boston to see him and write him up.
"A man whom all men and some women like," I said to myself.
"Have you a dual personality as well as two names," I asked,
when he came within conversational range.
"Not that I know of," he answered, somewhat puzzled. "You
see, my mother named me Garland, after her family, but the boys
seemed to think it was too dandified, so they hit upon Jake as the
other extreme, and I have been 'Jake' ever since. As to the dual
personality, you'll have to explain."
"You have no trouble dropping from a banker's life into base
ball?"
"I don't drop," he replied, quickly. "I consider baseball Just
as good business as banking and much more healthful. It Is hard to
make the average person understand that to be a professional ball
player one must live the most abstemious of lives, while bankers may,
perhaps, be allowed a little high living occasionally.
"1 can take the members of the Boston club and compare them
(o nny 22 men in commercial or professional life without the slightest
fear that baseball, as a vocation, will suffer by comparison. Seven out
of every 10 men in the business now are college men and college
training makes the best baseball men, as a rule.
"Baseball demands brainy as well as brawny men. Every year
after the season closes I return to Chicago and go into the bank,
and when I go south In the spring for practice, I don't drop one
whit of my self-respect."
"I'llim big, good-looking, firm-mouthed leader of the American
league champions expects to remain in baseball for a long time. He
is 32 and he told me that the way players take care of themselves
today insures a longer lease of life in big league company than was
th case a few years ago.
U. P. S. GETTING READY
FOR U. OF W. CHAMPS
The U. P. S. team is being fast

pitcher of the baseball team, will

Pitchford hardly expects to beat

years, but will say that his team
will make a good showing. In
order to give his men the chanoe
to work together against opposl
tion, Coach Pitchford will Bend
his team against the Puyallup
High school team Wednesday un
less the game falls through.

dian league pitcher, who was de
veloped in the Tacoma grammar

AFRAID FARMER
WILL BACK OUT
Joe Bonds is of the opinion
that Frank Farmer is going to
back down on the l>out to be
held at Eatonville Oct. 19.
"I think he has a bad case of '
cold feet," said Joe. "He was
just playing for a draw in our
last match. In case Farmer does
not take a notion to face the mu
sic, I will probably be matched
with Fred Dabroe or Eddie
Sheppler."
Bonds thinks Farmer Is the " \
best man if he only had more "*
nerve. Joe says he is in good
Hhape to meet any of the men.
He weighs 178 pounds stripped
now, and "it's not fat either,"
says the big boy. He will have
to come down a wee bit to make
light heavyweight class.
