Fans Hail Terry as Giants Keep Top
Club Plays for Him—Didn't for McGraw
All-Star Game Destroyed Illusions
YORK, July 17.—The spectacle of the not greatly
improved Giants on top under Bill Terry, the new man
ager, whereas a year ago they were fluctuating between
sixth, seventh and eight places under John J. McGraw, has
got the sorority sisters buzzing.
Doesn't this prove, they demand to know, that the manager makes
the team? If it does, then it is the first time any such proof has been
written into the records of the game for more than fifty years. What
it probably does prove is that the Giants are playing for Terry and that
they weren’t playing for McGraw.
Get- any baseball manager to take his hair down and he must admit
there is no such thing as a ipagic formula in the dugout, and that if
he isn't equipped with Grade A material, his chances of winning a cham
pionship are less than optimistic. Napoleon had the correct slant. God
is usually on the side of the heaviest battalions.
aaa* a a a
call Connie Mack the master strategist. Yet he spent so many
years in the cellar that he began to resemble a washing machine. Tris
Speaker was hailed as a miracle man when he brought Cleveland its only
American League pennant in 1920. But in subsequent years, Speaker
couldn't even win in the minors.
Clarence Rowland came out of a tap room in Peoria, 111., to lead
the White Sox to a championship. Gabby Street was hanging out the
Monday wash in his back yard down home in Missouri when a phone
call from St. Louis made him manager of the Cardinals —the last Na
tional League team to win a world series.
Any well-grounded baseball man can won if he has the players. True,
some can get more out of players than others, and when the issue is close
this can become the deciding factor. Out in Chicago. Frank Chance was
rhapsodized as the peerless leader. He had the men then. In New York
he didn't and he was a failure.
ana a a a
rpuE list is long and conclusive. McGraw and Mack were rival mana
-I gers in the all-star game last week. They had at their disposal the
cream of the crop, the pick of their respective leagues. You or I could
have managed those teams into championships. They would have made
us look like master minds, plus.
Incidentally, that game destroyed some of the romantic illusions that
have grown up around the managerial guild. Principally the one about
machine play, co-ordination and delicacy of balance—virtues which sup
posedly spring from the masterful planning and divine perspicacity of
the “Stalins of the sidelines.”
The only place these virtues can show is in defensive play. There is
a theory that to be effective on defense infielders and outfielders must
work together as a unit for a certain length of time, become accustomed
to each other's style of play, familiarize themselves w r ith all the twists
and turns that may develop in the course of a game.
This theory was completely blasted in the all-star game. Neither
team had more than the customary fifteen minutes fielding practice. A
few of the players were from the same team, but for the most part they
were, in the manner of speaking, total strangers. But they all had one
thing in common. They knew their trade.
Yank Netters Face England;

PARIS, July 17.—International
tennis interest shifted from Wim

announcement of the American Da

against England in the interzone
final, and by indications that France
will draft Jean Borotra to play the
singles later in the challenge round.

I Tribe Drops 2 in 3 to
| Saints, Faces Millers
Burwell Turns Back Apostles in Sunday Nightcap, 3 to 2;
Slim Harriss Hurls 10-to-2 Victory in Opener;
Hoosiers Also Lose Saturday.
By Timra Special
MINNEAPOLIS. July 17.-—Red Killefer and his fourth-place Indians
moved across the river today to continue their diamond warfare after
dropping two of the three week-end struggles with St. Paul.
The Hoosiers will be here four days for five games with the second
place Millers.
Bill Burwell’s right arm and some classy fielding kept Emmet Mc-
Cann's from making a complete sweep of the week-end St. Paul
action. He stopped the Saints in the second tussle of Sunday’s double
header. 3 to 2. after the Tribe had tumbled in the opener, 10 to 2.
Bill Thomas was routed during a four-run attack in the first inning
Saturday, and the Indians were sunk, 5 to 2, with Floyd Newkirk hurling
brilliant five-hit ball for the winners.

Dick Keil. Dave Mitchell and
Vaughn King of South Grove, and
Johnny McGuire of Coffin will
tangle in semi-final matches of the
Indianapolis public links champion
ship at Riverside. They survived
the opening pair of eighteen-hole
matches at South Grove Sunday.
Mitchell takes on King and Mc-
Guire faces Keil. with Mitchell and
McGuire favored to tangle in the
thirty-six-hole tussle at Coffin on
Sunday, July 23.
Keil, ex-Washington high school
star who first gained prominence in
The Times’ annual schoolboy golf
classic, was upset hero of the open
ing day play.
He topped Ed Urich of Coffin in
the initial round. 1 up in twenty
one holes, and then came back to
eliminate Clark Espie of Pleasant
Run, one of the four players who
will represent the city in the na
tional tourney at Portland. Ore.,
next month, in the afternoon.
3 and 2.
In his match with Urich, Keil
forced the match into extra holes
when his drive No. 18 passed the
green and landed on a clay founda
tion in a ridge near a pathway. He
moved his ball, believing he could
get a better lie without penalty, but
was called by Urich and forced to
forfeit the hole.
He made a wonderful recovery
after hooking his drive on the nine
teenth to get a halve in the birdies,
broke even on the twentieth and
then sank a fifteen-foot putt on the
twenty-first to tSrin with a 4.
Slim Harriss was too tough for
the Hoosiers in the opener Sunday.
The best the Tribe could do was six
hits, which were scattered over four
Pete Daglia hurled the first seven
innings for the Indians and was
trailing 3 to 1 when lifted in the
eighth for a pinch hitter.
The Hoosiers’ made their only
threat in the eighth, when Layne
singled after one down, Callaghan
walked, Sigafoos singled to score
Layne, and Wingard wn’ked, but
Cooney flied to Paschal for the
third out.
The Tribe’s first marker was
scored by Angley, who homcred over
the right field wall in the fifth in
ning. Jack Tising took up the
Tribe hurling in the eighth and was
hammered hard. Two errors were
mixed with six hits to give the
Saints seven runs before the side
was retired.
Jeffries, Saints second sacker, led
the winners’ attack in the first game
with a homer, two doubles and
single in four trips.
Doubles by Jeffries, Radcliff and
Paschal in the first inning sent the
Saints off to a two-run lead in the
nightcap, but Burwell tightened
and although he allowed nine hits
during the game, three more than
the Tribe got off Munns, he kept
them scattered.
In the second frame, Wingard
tripled, Bedore walked, Riddle and
Burwell singled and Layne rolled out
to shove two markers across the
rubber and knot the count. The win
ning run was chalked up in the
third when Callaghan walked,
Sigafoos singled, Wingard forced
Sigafoos, Callaghan going to third
and Marty scored on the double
steal with Wingard.
Johnny Cooney continued his
brilliant flychasing in center field
for the Indians, getting six putouts
in the second game, four of them of
the spectacular variety.

By United Press
NEW YORK. July 17.—Washing
ton and New York today were tied
for leadership in the American
League as a result of the Senators’
half-game slip Sunday, when they
lost to the last-place St. Louis
Browns. The Yanks were idle. The
Senators had held sole possession of
the lead since June 23.
St. Louis blanked the Senators, 7
to 0. behind Bump Hadley’s four-hit
pitching. The Browns collected
eleven hits off Whitehill, McAfee
and Russell, bunching most of these
safeties for six runs in the ninth.
Oscar Melillo led the attack with
three singles in four tries.
Sixth-place Cleveland gained on
idle Detroit by nosing out Boston, 2

Saturday. He was nudging him in

of several minutes.
Starter Bill Hamilton stood for it
as long as he could and the next
time Bill brought the bang tail from
the rear of the box he stopped him
half way in. Bill asked if he should
kick him a little to move him up.
‘‘Kiss him or kick him ’ yelled
Hamilton, “it's your last ride and

Three-Year-Old Turf
Title Still Muddled
Inlander Splashes Through Arlington Mud for Classic
Triumph, Leaving Favorites Far Behind; Eight Win
ners Recorded in as Many Big Races.
United Pre* Staff Correspondent
CHICAGO. July 17.—The turf's 3-vear-old championship today was
complicated beyond solution.
The $35,000 Arlington Classic, which was expected to settle the
championship, did nothing more than further involve matters when
Inlander, a rank outsider, galloped through the black, sticky mud to
victory Saturday at Arlington. Inlander won $32,775 and paid $21.52 to
win for $2.
Inlander, a bay colt, owned by Mrs. Dodge Sloane of New York,
wasn't even regarded as the best horse in the Brookmeade's two horse
entry before the race. Okapi, Inlander s stablemate which was expected
to do most of the running for the Brookmeade stable, finished fifth.

In the eight big 3-year-old races
held thus far. we find eight separate
winners, as follows:
Kentucky Derby—Broker's Tip.
Preakness—Head Play.
Withers Mile—The Darb.
Dwyer Stakes—War Glorv.
Belmont Stakes—Hurry Off.
American Derby—Mr. Khayyam.
I.atonia Derby—Gold Basis.
Arlington Classic—lnlander.
Six of these eight winners, all
except Broker’s Tip. out of train
ing. and Hurry Off were named to
start in the Arlington classic, and
it seemed that one would gallop right
on into the title. Rain the night
before classic day made the track
heavy and Mr. Khayyam, which
probably would have gone to the
post the favorite on a fast track,
dodged the issue entirely.
The rest of the championship pre
tenders showed their dislike for the
heavy going and refused to run.
Golden Way, which had run second
to The Darb in the Withers, had
the lead momentarily in the stretch,
but couldn’t hold it and finished a
length and a half behind Inlander,
which was timed in the slow time
of 2:12 for the mile and a quarter.
War Glory, son of Man o’ War, fin
ished third, four lengths behind
Golden Way.
Head Play quit entirely and fin
ished next to last. The Darb wound
up in tenth place, after one brief
flash of speed early in the race. Gold
Basis was never in the running and
finished seventh. Okapi, the fa
vorite, landed in sixth place. Kerry
Patch, Belmont Futurity winner

money by War Glory.
