Sunday Game
At Harrison
Threatened Fight With New
League Postponed, Perhaps
Au?gust Herrmann, president of the
national Baseball Commission, and
John K. Tener, president of the Na
t.onal League, wore notified yesterday
by C. H. Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn
Nationals, that it had been "deemed
inadvisable" to play the gamo adver?
tised for next Sunday at Harrison,
N. J., between the Dodgers and the
This decision, it is believed, resulted
from intimations that International
League officials would consider Sunday
baseball in New Jersey near Newark an
invasion of their territory.
"In conference with Hempstead and
Ruppert to-day, we deemed it inadvisa?
ble to play gamo at Harrison next Sun?
day, as advertised in to-day's papers,
pending later consideration of the sub?
ject," read the telegram sent to Herr?
mann and Tener by Kbbets.
CHICAGO, May 3.?Inside details of
the part the major leagues and Nation?
al Baseball Commission played in fi?
nancing the old International League
when that organization was in distress
in 1914, during the war with the Fed?
eral League, were revealed to-night by
August Herrmann, chairman of the Na?
tional Commission, who said that ap?
proximately $30,000 was loaned and
contributed to the League to enable it
to meet its obligations.
Chairman Herrmann's statement was
made in reply to the protest by John
H. Farrell, president of the new Inter?
national League, against the proposed
plan of the major leagues to play Sun?
day games at the former Newark Fed?
eral League park at Harrison, N. J.,
which is in the five-mile limit of New?
ark, now a member of the new Inter?
Claims $8,700 More
"President Farrell sent me a check
for $3,000 as full payment for claims
against the old International League,''
Herrmann said. "But there still is an
unpaid amount of $8,700. This sum
represents money which the National
Commission and the major leagues
loaned to Edward G. Barrow, who was
then president of the International, to
meet certain obligations during the lat?
ter part of the 1914 season. ,,
"President Johnson of tho American
League personally loaned Barrow $3,200
in September of 1914, and later the Na?
tional Commission reimbursed him.
The American and National leagues, in
addition to the loans, contributed $5,000
and $10,000 at various times to support
the league."
Chairman Herrmann said he did not
know whether Barrow, who since has
become manager of the Boston Ameri?
cans, had acquainted Farrell with the
exact financial obligations of the old
International organization.

Yankee Batters Surmount
Huggins's Weird Strategy
Pound Red Sox Delivery for Three Successive Singles, a
Run and the Game?Both Love and Bush
Pitch Exceptionally Well
By Louis Lee Arms
The boys in the upper tier were getting ready to pan the baseball
pantaloons right off young Mister Huggins yesterday when suddenly, as
they say, in the eleventh inning, curse them Bawstanese, the Yankees
stepped out and got a run for themselves, "Bullet Joe" Bush did a cuckoo
and everything was lovely. That made the final score 3 to 2.
Young Mister Huggins made a most?
goshawful blunder in the tenth inn-I
ing when with three on and none out j
he let Elmer Love hit for himself.
Elmer hit for himself, and for the
City of Greater New York, right into
the middle of a double play. When
"Slim" Caldwell, who should have hit
for Elmer Love, but did hit for Gil
hooley, raised a long fly for a third
out ? which should have scored the
winning run had he hit for Elmer
Love, instead of batting for Elmer
Gilhooley, or whatever that bird's first
name is?the Boys in the Upper Tier
were of a mind to go right down on
the field and lay young Mister Hug
gins over their collective knees.
Young Mister Huggins will never
know how near he came to death,
death, death In that gravid, not to
mention grave, moment. The Boys in
the Upper Tier believe it was no part
of the plan of the present Adminis?
tration to save daylight for extra
baseball innings, and it did look as
though Young Mister Huggins were
laying his lines to make a midnight
frolic out of yesterday's ball game.
But, as some one quickly observed,
all's well that ends well, that part of
the Yankees' batting order which is
familiarly known as "Murderers' Kow"
went after "Bullet Joe" Bush with
knives and bottles and chairs in the
eleventh inning, and the thunderstorm
which was sweeping off the Jersey
shores straight for the Polo Grounds
arrived just in time to bring flowers?
for Boston.
Miller Saws Wood
Let us remark in passing that the
game never would have reached tho
eleven-inning mark had it not been for
a galvanic heave by Elmer?Miller in
the eighth inning, which doubled Joe
Bush at the plate and snatched from
the speeding Red Sox a sure-fire vic?
tory. Mr. Miller is one of those auiet,
retiring gents who say little and saw
wood. He sawed a let of it when he
made that streaking toss to the plate
that nipped Joe Bush as he was sliding
in on his shoulder blades, and took
much of the gimp out of the Boston
procession that was. trying to parade to
the home plate.
Other than that the paramount feat?
ure was the high quality of the fling
ing duel between "Bullet Joe" Bush
and Slim Love. "Bullet Joe" started
with every bullet shooting true to its
mark, but grew a little wild as the
afternoon turned into night, and we
imagine his wildest moment came in
the eleventh inning, when Baker, Pratt
and Pipp singled in succession, driving
over the winning run.
Slim Love, whoso family and intimate
friends know 'him as Elmer, steadily
grew better a? the grandstand shadows
grew longer, and with the first two
innings out of the way?in which Bos?
ton scored twice?he had the American
League leaders feeding from his mitt.
Slim deals 'em off the insane arm, as
it were, and the modern Athenians, who
are being guided by Edward Interna?
tional Burrows, don't seem to fancy
the wrong-handed style of pitching.
Love Pitches Great Ball
Love has unquestionably reached th?
height of pitching form and seems tc
have not only reached it for himseli
but for the entire Yankee pitching
staff as well. He was low-balling th<
Bostonese to the well known state o:
Innocuous Desuetude, which is one o:
the few states and territories whicl
has thus far been able to keep out o:
the war.
After the first inning the Red Soj
never got more than one hit in any on?
frame off Love. This is so unusual a?
to be well nigh sensational on th?
part of the Yankees' pitching staff
which is us^ed to letting the oppositioi
use its own conscience in the matter o
hits. Not one of those hits exceedei
a single either, and it is certain it wa
for that reason that young Miste
Huggins maintained Lovo in the bo:
through the turbulent tenth, fearinj
that with him gone he would have t?
send in the water bucket, or somethinj
handy and humorous like that.
Th? Red Sox, who have great quan
tities of enthusiasm, started off wit!
a run in the first frame on singles b;
Shean and Strunk and a wild pitch b;
Love. In the second inning Scot
tripled and scored on Agnew's short fl
to Bodie. Francisco Pizzola's thro^
to the plate was all right, but th
bound it took had neither good man
ncrs nor innate gentility. It bounde
so high it almost knocked "Truck
Hannah's hat off. That finished th
Red Sox scoring for the day.
The Yankees began to even things v,

Love singled to left, Wally Schang
playing the ball badly in the sun.
Whereas he should have made a fair
catch of the hit, he was lucky to trap
it. Gilhooley promptly forced Love,
but the change was in favor of speed,
for Gil slipped around to third on
Peck's long single to left. A double
steal was put in operation, ..nd Gil
scored as Scott touched Peck out 'on
the base line, a dispute ensuing, though
it was plain the Yankee had come
across ere Scott nabbed Mr. Peck and
The Yanks tied it in the seventh.
With one down Pratt singled, and was
forced by Pipp. Bodie hit a tremendous
smash to left centre, and Amos Strunk,
taking the ball on the bound, began a
most unusual juggling act. He juggled
the ball and juggled it again, and just
when it seemed he was to stop he
juggled it some more. So Pipp ran
around to the plate, having no place
else in particular to go.
After filling the bases with none out
in the tenth, the Yankees won out in
the eleventh, when with one down Ba?
ker, Pratt and Pipp singled?major
league singles, every one of them. So
young Mister Huggins still preserved
his baseball pantaloons intact.
Polo Grounders!
It was the first time Polo Grounders
had seen Stuffy Mclnnis at third base.
He handled himself well at that bag
on the few chances proffered him. As
he used to play shortstop and second
as a schoolboy, the infield outside of
first base is not new to him. In fact, he
never played first base until he came
to the major league. In that respect
ho is like George Sisler of tho Browns,
who had confined his baseball activities
to pitching and the outfield until he. :
was introduced to American League
The sprint Joe Bush made for the i
home plate in the eighth inning evi?
dently took something out of him, for
it was apparent his speed diminished
in the final few frames.
Although Bodie fanned on his first two
trips to the plate, he certainly made
up for it later, his long single scoring
Pipp in the seventh and his double
putting the Yankees in shape for vic?
tory in the tenth. Strunk made a sen?
sational stop of Bodie's double in the
tenth, much like "Hap" Felsch's famous
stop in the world's series last fall.
If the ball had gotten by him it would
have gone for a home run.
Huggins's confidence in Elmer Miller
is gaining its reward. Miller is more J
sure of himself each day and is an j
incomparable fielder as well as a dan- j
gerous hitter.
With the kind of pitching Love gives
them the Yankees look like a genuine
contender. If another two of the
Yanks' staff could develop as the alti
tudinous left hander has the Ruppert
Huston franchise would be in the hunt.
The gamo this afternoon will begin
at 3:15 o'clock.
Boxing News and Notes
Blood is liable to bo spilled thi3
afternoon on the quarterdeck of the
U. S. S. Recruit, lying at anchor in
Union Square Park, when six four
round bouts between a dozen hand
picked, corn-fed huskies will be fought
out under the stern eye of Commander
Newton Mansfield, head of naval re
I cruiting in this city.
We told you yesterday of the men
j who will sling the gloves, and you will
I have noticed that in every bout the
I men were as evenly matched as possi
j hie. That means ACTION every min
j pte, something that you don't always
j see in regular club bouts, and for this
j you can thank Mrs. George A.
i Wheelock, chief yeoman una Com
; mander Mansfield's right hand "man,"
' in arranging the entertainment.
When the commander decided to hold
the bouts he confided his troubles to
Mrs. Wheelock, and she went down in
the foVc'le of the Recruit and through
the different naval training camps and
navy yards in search of good fighting
men. After sizing up her man, Chief
Yeoman Wheelock proceeded along
conversational lines somewhat as fol?
"Will you fight so-and-so next Sat?
"I sure will, sir," wbb the usual re?
ply. "Aye, aye, sir!" which is a way
the men of the sea have of talking,
without regard to woman suffrage.
"But remember, 1 mean FIGHT, not
I an exhibition. I want you to hit the
; other fellow every time, just as though
' you were taking a shot at the Kaiser- -
?bit him bard, right oa tit? no??,"
warned Mrs. Wheelock, and every !
match was made with that understand?
So if you think the boys are getting
peeved at each other this afternoon,
don't get frightened and call a cop.
They are "punching for Uncle Sam,"
and while the battles are going on and
between bouts Mrs. Wheelock and
others will go through the crowd and
pick recruits for the navy?only the
HANDSOMEST models. Not all the
men who box to-day are in the navy,
but most of them are, and the others
have announced their intention ?f com?
ing across, including "You-know-me-Al"
McCoy, former middleweight champion,
and Harry Greb, claimant for the title.
These two are to meet in a regular
ring bout in Cincinnati next week, so
they will probably try and put across
the sleep slam this afternoon.
John "Tea" Dunn, erstwhile flowery
orator of Flatbush, assured us yester?
day that he had pruned his language
of all its former frills and thrills and
is now speaking straight from the
shoulder in his efforts to help boost
the sale of Liberty Bonds. John ad?
dressed a monster crowd from the
steps of the City Hall in Philadelphia
yesterday, and drew a financial re?
sponse sufficient to fill several hogs?
heads with gold pieces.
Good John is a regular citizen, for
in addition to his forensic activities
he has given three sons to the service.

Coombs Better
Than Mayer if
Phils Do Score
Moran's Groggy Crew Ends
Runlessness After 33 In?
nings?Count Is 5?-2
By Charles A. Taylor
Some old pitchers, like old wine, im?
prove with age. Jack Coombs has been
a pitcher who has gone to the well so
often that it was high time he was
"broken. But the Phillies yesterday i
lacked the necessary punch to break
Pitcher Coombs. Old Colby Jack had
a hunch that a team that was unable
to score a run in twenty-seven innings
would be easy picking for him, and he
was right. The score in Coombs's favor
was 5 to 2.
The sterling box work of this aged
veteran proved to Undo Robbie that
he had, in addition to Lar*ry Cheney,
who performed the great feat of beat?
ing the Giants, in his possession a-rec?
ord twirler who could deliver the goods.
Mamauxs may come and Mamauxs may
go, but with a Jack Coombs and a
Larry Cheney on his pitching staff
Squire Ebbets should not despair. The
Squire's team is bound to win soma
Strange, is it not, that of all the
pitching phenoms that appear on the
back lots and win the acclaim of the
semi-pro fans practically none has ap?
peared on the big league diamonds thus
far to fill the breach caused by the ?,
call to the greater game abroad? It is
becoming more and more apparent that
baseball this year is going to be a
battle of the dycd-in-the-wools.
There must be some promising youths
outside the draft who would fit in very
nicely under present conditions, but
Uncle Robbie, Miller Huggins and all ?
the rest of the big league managers j
have searched in vain for just such
boys. The big league season gives
promise of being a series of games be
tween veterans and for the edification
cf veteran fans alone. No new blood
on the field or in the stand** is the
Loyal 600 Are Still
Six hundred Flatbush fans, for in?
stance, saw the game at Ebbets Field
yesterday. They naturally rejoiced in
the cunning displayed by old Jack |
Coombs and the victory which finally '
came to the Dodgers as a result of
Colby Jack's efficiency. But the ardor
of youth was sadly missing in their
behavior. Brooklyn fans of yore used
to make their presence felt in far more
vigorous fashion, as many a National
League umpire can testify. But the
old game must go on. So here it goes:
The Phillies were unable to get the
semblance of a hit off Old Jack in
their half of the first inning, but the
Dodgers had no --such respect for
Mayer, the Quaker pitcher. Ivan Olson,
the first man up, doubled to right field.
Molly O'Mara then perpetrated his
third sacrifice hit in two games, Ivan
going to third, whence he scored on
Jake Daubert's fly to Cactus Cravath.
Hi Myers urew a base on balls, but
was caught in an attempted steal of
The Dodgers added two more runs in
the second frame. Whitted dropped
Johnston's skyscraper, and Jimmy raced
to third when Hickman doubled over
Cravath's head in right. Schmandt
singled through short, and Johnston
tallied, Hickman advancing to third.
Pearce, who succeeded McGaffiigan at
second when the latter had his thumb
spiked in the first inning, fumbled a
grounder by Mack Wheat and Hick?
man counted. Coombs went out on a
sacrifice. Mayer to Pearce. But Mayer
pulled himself together and fanned
both Olson and O'Mara.
Phillies Finally Score
The Phillies scored their first run in
thirty-three innings in the seventh.
Whitted doubled to left and crossed the
plate on Meusel's single to centre field.
Every one seemed glad to see the
Phillies garner a run after their ter?
rible experience with the McGraw men.
Even Jack Coombs broadened his usual
smile by an extra inch or two as Whit?
ted dashed over the rubber.
Flatbush got into action again in the
eighth and made things most obnoxious
to Mr. Tincup, who had relieved Mayer
on the mound for the *. isitors. With
one man gone Jake Daubert singled to
centre and shot to second on Meusel's
poor return to the infield. Hi Myers
struck another safe blow to right and
Jake tallied. Myers went out stealing,
but Johnston walked and stole second.
Mr. Tincup filled to the brim his bowl
of woe by throwing to centre field in
an endeavor to nab Johnston off sec?
ond. The Brooklyn athlete took third
on the bungle. Jimmy Hickman smote
the ball to right centre for three bags
and Johnston strolled home. Schmandt
was tossed out by the Phillie pitcher
and Jimmy was left stranded.
The Phillies made a most surprising
rally in the ninth after Whitted had
flied to centre. Meusel made his sec?
ond consecutive single and scored on
Tincup's double to centre after Burns
had popped out to Olson. Bancroft
met the ball weakly and gave Myers an
easy fly. The Phillies were through,
and seemingly perfectly content with
their first runs in four games.
Pat Moran's men will not be con?
tenders for the next world champion?
ship. There is more hope for Brook?

Mamaux Denies
Quitting Robins
To Avoid Draft
BOSTON, May 2.? Albert Mamaux,
the Brooklyn National League pitcher
who has been placed in Class 1-A by
his draft board, arrived in this city to?
night and said he had left the club to
seek work in the Fore River plant of
the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company
at Quincy.
"I am not trying to avoid the draft,"
Mamaux said. "I am simply looking
out for my future. I feel that I have
lost most of the baseball stuff that
I once had and that I can't make good
for Brooklyn. So it is up to me to look
ahead, as I have a mother and small
brother to take care of. I think I can
do that and at the same time do some?
thing to help win the war by working
at shipbuilding.
"But if the country wants me to fight
I'll enlist in the navy rather than be
drafted. I prefer the navy to the army,
and if I enlist I shall ask to be sent
overseas at once where I can get ac?
tion. I haven't any desire for a soft
job when there's a chance for real
Rube Benton, in His First
Game of the Season, Wins
?_._ ^ _
Southpaw Holds Braves to
Six Hits Well
BOSTON, May 3.?It's the same old
story. The Giants continued their mad
rush here to-day by defeating the Bos?
ton Braves, 5 to 1. Some time, some?
where, the National League champions
will be stopped, perhaps, but Boston
has done its best and failed. ?
McGraw chose Rube Benton, who had
not started a game before this year, to
keep the ball rolling on to another pen?
nant. And Rube, after his long rest,
which carried through winter and
spring, lived up to the fondest expecta?
tions of John Josephus. It might be no
compliment to Rube to say that any old
pitcher can win for the Giants these
days, but it must be said that Benton
was on the job every minute and de?
served the victory.
Only six scattered hits did the Braves
glean from th?j southpaw slants of
Rube, and Herzog was the only Brave
to cross the plate. Ofr course the ex
Giant was not a bit pleased at the
honor thrust upon him. He loves the
Giants and, McGraw.
The New Yorkers did not dally. In
the very first inning they fell hard on
the offerings of Left Nenf, the ace of
the Boston pitching staff. Ross Young
opened the carnage with a single to left
field and advanced to second on a wild
pitch. Benny Kauff hit to Nehf, who
made a belated throw to third, and both
runners were safe.
Rehg Stars Twice
Burns fouled to Konetchy, but Heinie
Zim came through with a double to left
that scored Young and put Kauff on
third. Larry Doyle singled to left,
tallying Kauff. Heinie in an endeavor
to follow Benny across the plate was
cut down by a tine throw of Rehg. The
Boston outfielder gained more applause
from the fans by his running catch of
Fletcher's long foul. But the Giants
had two runs.
In the fourth inning the Braves
aroused themselves sufficiently to make
one run. With one man out Herzog
singled to right field and took second
on Kelly's safe smash to centre. A
double steal advanced both runners and
Rehg walked, clogging the paths. Red
Smith sent a fly to Kauff?on which Her?
zog counted. Benny made a wild throw
anti Kelly attempted to follow Herzie
across the rubber but was run down by
the Giant infield. Kelly protested so
strongly that the umpire told him his
day's work was done.
The Giants, perhaps a bit fearsome
of their one-run lead, gathered two
more tallies in the fifth as a result of
singles by Young and Kauff, and a
triple to right centre by Geo?ge Burns.
Two men wer* out when all this hap
peaed and Heinie Zim said "enough" by
fouling to Wilson.
The final run for the Giants came in
the seventh and no less a personage
than Benton did the counting. Rube
walked and kept on walking when
Benny Kauff tripled to right field.
