Pitcher Douglas, of G
Return of Former Cub
Will Bolster Box Staff.
"Shufflin' Phil" Is Expected to Turn In Many Vic?
tories for McGraw This Year; Erratic Twirler
?J Virtually Cost Giants the Pennant Last Season
By W. J. Macbeth
Pitcher Phil Douglas is once more eligible to play for the New York
Giants. The eccentric twirler, who took French leave of McGraw's club
on the eve of that memorable concluding series of the year between the
Giants and Reds at the Polo Grounds, was reinstated by the National"
To Douglas's fall from grace was at?
tributed one reason why McGraw's
top-h?avy favorite entrant cf 1019 lost
the ultimate decision to Cincinnati.
Douglas was secured from the Chicago
Cubs to bolster up a pitchirg staff
that was none too strong at the time.
It was almost mid-season when Doug?
las came to the Giants and he left the
team before he had ?.?me to get ac?
quainted. With Chicago "Shufflin'
Phil" had been on his good behavior,
especially in 1918, when he turned in
many a victory toward the champion?
ship for Mitchell's Cuba.
Until he joined the banner of
Mitchell, Douglus had always given a
Surent deal of trouble to the various
managers under whom he served. He
paid little attention to training rules.
He would have periodic sessions of
grace, at which rimes he always proved
one of the most effective right handed
pitchers of his company. But he did
not appear able to stand prosperity.
As diplomatic a manager as Wilbert
Robinson, of the Dodgers, had to give
him up in despair.
Pitched Well for Cubs
Por more than a season Fred
Mitchell, of the Cubs, kept Douglas's
feet on the straight and narrow path,
and during that time Phil proved a
wonJerful asset. But last season, when
fortune turned against the champion
Cubs, Douglas became despondent. He
was transferred to the Giants as a re?
When he took the "runout powder"
on the Giants McGraw immediately
suspended Douglas and appeared to
forget him. McGraw went religiously
about the task of building up his shat- j
.ered pitching staff from other an?
gles. The purchase of Arthur Nehf,
from the Boston Braves, at an esti?
mated price of $40,000, followed soon.
Little had been heard from Douglas
from the time he disappeared as a
Giant until the news of '.iis reinstate?
ment was announced. Said announce?
ment, however, seemj sisni?eant. It
would appear that inf.uences have been \
at work in his behalf, as Douglas was '
whitewashed without fine, though
warned that if he aga?n leaves his club
without the management's consent he
will be subjected to a heavy tax.
Whether the Giant club indorse
Douglas's pe^tion for pardon could not
be learned yesterday. Messrs. Stone
ham anu McGraw are still in Cuba,
while Joe O'Brien, the club secretary,
had n<*t returned from. Milwaukee,
vvhtre it was reported yesterday ho
had purchesed an interest in the Mil
A'Pukve club of the American Associa?
It is to be presumed, however, that
McGraw has decided to give Douglas
another chance. Provided "Shufflin'
Phil" makes the most of this grace, the
Giants will start the* 1920 campaign
with the mos*. formidable pitching ar?
ray of its history?one of the very
best twirling departments ever assem?
bled under one banner. Art Nehf and
Rub? Benton are two of the very best
?southpaws in the league; Jess Barnes,
Fred Toney and Phil Dcuglas are three
sterling veteran right-handers, with
Winters and half a dozen cub tossers
still to be heard from.
Up to Major Leagues j
Apparently the minor leagues?or at
least the more powerful circuits of
the miners?are not t>o anxious to re
.establish a working agrcsment with
the majors as one wa.-> led to suppose
from the reports of tl National As?
sociation's annual meeting. John H.
Far^?ll, secretary of the National As- |
uociation and chairman of the minor (
leagues' committee appointed to con- i
fer . ith the majors, has written the
two big leagues to submit whatever i
propesition they may entertain.
It wa-s always supposed that the ?
minor and not the major leagues were j
the suppliants in the case. The na- ?
tional agreement was abrogated at the !
solicitation of the powerful miiiurs. ?
Its abrogation did not seriously af- |
feet the National and American ,
Leagues, which enjoyed a record year
of pitsperitv in 1919 despite shortened
schedules. It is not necessary to the
welfare of the big league to re
eftnblith draft privilege? or the plac?
ing ot talent in minor fields under
optional agreement. The small minor
leagues, it was supposed, were the
ones most desirous of a return to old
working conditions. < j
Whether or not there is a disposi?
tion among the big minors to betray
the wishes of the lesser circuits re?
mains to be disclosed at the big base?
ball conference in Chicago next month.
At the time of the joint meeting of the
two big leagues the committees from
the minor leagues will be heard. The
major leagues feel, as the disinter?
ested party, that whatever petitions
nre forthcoming should be made by
minor leagqe baseball.
The club, ownerh of the National and
American leagues had hoped, in the
reorganization of the National Com?
mission, to attain a national agree?
ment more advantageous to all inter?
ests than the one abrogated a year ago.
Minor league representation on the
commission is one of the possibilities
if the little fellow* are wise enough
to approach In due humility.

Aid to Improve
Radical Program Adopted
for Cross-Country Sport
by Hunts Association
A radical program, which has for
its object the improvement of cross?
country horse racing in America, was
adopted by the National Steeplechase
and. Hunts Association at a meeting
at the Hotel Commodore, called at the
suggestion of Harry S. Page, last night.
More than fiity sportsmen from all
parts of the country were in at?
Henry Higginson, chairman of the
meeting, will appoint a -committee of
three.?one representative of the
Hunts Association, an army officer and
a delegate-at-large?to embody the
resolutions and suggestions adopted*
in concrete form in the nature of new
rules and regulations.
It was the sense of the meeting that
the racing asscc'atior.s should pay
more courtesy to steeplechasing and
take steps immediately to place it on
such a high plane as prevails in
Europe. The hunts associations will
demand free dates from the racing
Colonel C. T. George, Colone] Koch,
Major Guy V. Henry and Major Leon?
ard were present as representatives
from the United States Army General
Headquarters, Washington. D. C. Major
Henry spoke at great length, pointing
out that army officers had"been unable
to do much for the game, as army reg?
ulations prevented shipping of horses
and the various posts were so scat?
Joseph E. Davis was of the opinion
that the racing associations should
make the prize money for timber-top?
ping events big enough to stimulate
the development of jumpers of high
class. Harry Page pointed out that
more gentlemen rider3 were needed.
There were but twenty-five certificates
issued last year, whereas in one race in
England last year thirty-five horses
faced the starter. He thought dis?
tances, height of fences and weights
ahou'd be so adjusted as to put the
proper premium on class. The lack of
riders was due large'y to the prevail?
ing low scale of weights, in his opinion.
E. M. Weld declared the low fences
in this country a disgrace to the name
of the sport.
Among those who attended the meet?
ing were R. Penn Smith, Bernard Fen

Brookes Compares Court Skill
Of Leading U. S. Tennis Players
Foremost Student of Garne I
Sees Hope for Come-j
Back by McLoughlin |
By Fred Hawthorne
When a master of the game like
Norman Brookes gives us his per?
sonal views a3 to the relative playing
skill of the leading American lawn
tennis players, we are bound to pay
close attention, and, although some of
his deductions may differ from the
conclusions we had arrived at, we
Bhould always remember that the great
Victorian is probably the most astute
student of tennis that ever lived.
In the statement from the Australian
Davis Cup team captain, which I
printed in this column last Sunday,
Brookes commented upon the style of
play of several of our "first ten" men,
and T think that a majority of people
in this country who have made a close
study of the men mentioned will agree
Speaking of William M. Johnston,
the national champion, Brookes said:
"Johnston Is very much like W. A.
Earned in all his strokes and methods.
He is sound in every part of the game
and has a beautiful forehand drive,
tie is nia. in,': as well as he was before
the war. It doesn't seem to have left
any effect on him."
Certainly Johnston's style is more
like Larned's ?than that of any othei
player who has followed the "Nestor
of the American courts." Every shot is
made in perfect form, the footwork is
flawless and his tactics on the court
very similar. But I believe that
Job listen's strokes carry grentei
"pace" than Larned's ever did, particu?
larly hfs forehand drive ano his over?
hand volleying from inside the servie?
Criticize Backhand Strokes
Some critics find fault with the way
the present national champion executes
hi? oaekhand stroko?. Johnston uses
the same side of hi? racquet for bot!
for. and back hand, hencei he does not
: use the changing grip, favored by most
of the leading players of the day. But
I have yet to find any man who wil
make the flat assertion that the little
Callfornian has a weak backhand.
Brookes is on* of those who believe
that Maurice McLoughlin has not yel
passed out of the picture completely
lie has swn the? immortal "Maury" it
many matches, both In the any? whet
; the "Comet" was invincible on tin
courts, as in the Davis Cup matches o
! 1914 and last summer, when "Red Mac'
' was away below his best form. Am
this is what the Australian has to saj
about the former champion:
"McLougblln may come right bacl
into his best game. For the tim.^bein?
he hw? loat control of his service, bu
I St i? purely a matter of nerve. I thin]
ih* will get it back again. I told hin
II would get him back into hi? old a?rv
ice in about a week of Bteady practice.
There was nothing wron? with the
game he played against us at San Fran- .
cisoo. He relics now on a twist serv?
ira, and gets none of the wonderful
pace of old."
So Brookes really believes that Mc
Loughlin may return to the wonderful
game he showed in 1913 and 1914! I
confess that such a thing would come
as a surprise to me, who ha3 watched
the gradual and unmistakable tennis
decline of the onc?5 flaming "Comet."!
It is true that McLoughlin showed
showed flashes of his old form at times
last 'summer, but the vital spark
seemed to be lacking.
"Mac" Weak on Service
And yet Brookes declares that he
oould bring back in a week's time that
terrific service that was once the terror
of all opponents. And that was really
the one strikingly weak feature of the
Californian's game last season.
Of Richard Norris Williams 2d, of
Boston, former national champion and
conqueror of McLoughlin in 1914 and
Johnston in 1916, Brookes sayB:
"I consider Williams as good as any
player living. He plays perfect strokes
i on both fore and back hand, lie was.
?still, I consider, suffering from the
I effects of the war. I think in a little
?while he will get back into his beat
! form and will then, probably next year,
I be hard to stop."
I It is always pleasing to havo your !
own judgment confirmed by an au- !
thority, and I cannot help figuratively!
patting myself on the back when I
read Brookes's words, for I have nl- '
ways thought, and consistently main?
tained,-that the wizard Williams was |
j ono of the greatest players in the I
j world. Johnston is the more reliable
"machine" and would doubtless be a
; safer man to place your trust in day !
' in and day out during a playing sea- ;
?son, but when Williams naB all his,
! marvelous strokes working under full
! control I have never seen his equal
on the counts.
Brookes passes comment on various
others of the "first ten," including
William T. -Tilden 2d, of Philadelphia;
i Ichiya Kumafcae, Charles S. Garland
and Vincent Richards, and it is all In?
teresting as coming from a player of
?the Australian's standing.

"Are men of the Babe Ruth-Ty Cobb type, as great as they are indi?
vidually, pennant assets?" suggests F. L. H.
Why not? Cobb has played on three pennant winning teams and on
still another occasion helped his club to win 100 contests, ordinarily enough
to win with a parasang to spare.
Ruth has displayed his wares on three pennant winners, so each of
these Sons of Swat has had more than his share of team success.
Nap Lajoie, in twenty-one years, never achieved the happy fortune
of mingling with a pennant winning troupe.
And Walter Johnson, after eleven or twelve seasons, is still as far
away from the flagpole as ever. Possibly a trifle more so. Yet Johnson is
a great man for team play.
How Can He Help It?
The Historic Babe is bound to be a vital asset. He has known but
two seasons as an outfield regular, and upon each otcasion he has lifted
himself well above .300.
He is also the only ball player in history who for two successive
seasons har. turned in more hits for extra bases than one-base blows.
Last season he scored 11 more runs than Ty Cobb and 30 more runs than
Ed Roush, the National League premier at bat. He was 40 runs out
beyond Rogers Hornsby, another National League luminary.
He has a fairly short right field target to adjust his sights upon this
r.eason for seventy-seven games.
Just how an athlete of this type can score above 100 tallies and
drive in as many more can help from being a distinct asset is beyond us.
But Three Lapses
Ruth last season blew himself to only three lapses all year. He
assaulted George Mogridge for a home run in New York on April 23,
opening day, and desisted for thirty:seven days before he struck off his
next long clout, against Davenport on May 30.
Thereafter he proceeded at four and five day intervals to lift the ball
out of the lot until ?luly 29. After prodding Dutch Leonard for a circuit
drive on this day, the big slugger ceased firing for sixteen days, until he
finally resumed his old habit against Dick Kerr on August 14.
His last lapse came between September 8 and September 20. In the
main his periods of rest everaged about five days.
Just what homeruniess germ became installed in his batting eye be?
tween April 23 and May 30 is not known. The ways of genius are beyond
any cold, scientific analysis.
A Mark to Shoot At
While Ruth led both leagues as a runmaker, with several tallies to
spare, his mark was still 44 runs back of Ty Cobb's top output in 1911,
when the Georgian turned in 147 runs through 146 games.
Cobb needed 248 base hits and 83 stolen bases to raise this record
crop, which no one has ever approached.
With 154 games to work on, Ruth may go out after this record pro?
duction, as he has proved himself to be a runmaker of rare merit.
Rasping the Judges
The trials and tribulations of the umpire in baseball have been scat?
tered broadcast in song and story.
Very little has been written about the various troubles that follow a
football official, but life is none too soft for the referees and umpires
in this latter sport.
There are entirely too many coaches and old football grads, who insist
upon outlining the officials' duty in advance and then raising a noisy
> muss after the game is over because some penalty was inflicted or some
! decision was made that failed to favor their side of the argument.
A trifle more respect for the judgments of various officials in various
; games would not be very far out of place.
>, The Dempsey-Carpentier entanglement so far has been located only
in London, Paris, Mexico arid three or four Western cities. Bids from
Moscow, Odessa, Calcutta and Melbourne will be received next week.
, The Greatzim had no idea he was in politics until the Giants voted
I him out of second place money. Baseball for Heinie is getting more com
j plex ?very year. Being suspended is no longer a mere matter of obtain
j ing a holiday.
"Who are the three greatest quarterbacks ever developed?" pipes a
correspondent. What fourth man could you name to supplant Charlie
Daly, Vln Stevenson or Walter Eckersall?
It is a depressing thought that so many good fellows who might be
enjoying the brn-ung January air of the North have been crowded down
to the hot, stuffy traps' and bunkers that are said to infest the Florida
coast. We are seriously thinking of taking a trip in that direction to
I report their sufferings before some Senate committee or in aomo news?
paper or magazine or something.

Trouche and contains eight games,
?seven pt them regarded' as? exacting.
Only one, the match with the Univer?

prove light in its test of Yale'a
strength. The Elis defeated the
Southerners 34 to 7 last fall, the
visitors scoring because Yale failed
to handle a punt properly.

No minor New England colleges was
given a place on the schedule. Brown

Yale did not respond to the plan of
arranging a match with teams of the
middle or the distant West, but hopes,
for an invitation to play at the
l'estival oi! Rose.; in caso it defeats
Harvard and Princeton next fall. The
negotiations for a match with West

authorities deeming it inadvisable that

though the Navy will g_ to Princeton
for a match.

stronger date list, replacing these col?
