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" Commission yesterday. 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? sult. 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? tion. 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. International Skating Races at Lake Placid The dates for the international ice ukating championships, to be held at the Lake Placid. N.

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? tendance. 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 associations. 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? tered. 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 wick, C. R. Fleischmann, Mrs. Pavne Whitney, Rufus F'nch, Charles Mather, W. A. Prime, Harry Buck, Charles Rockwell, H. W. Bull, Colonel Goetz, Henry G. Vaughn, J. J. Flanigan jr., Walter J. Salmon, F. S. Von Stade. Mr. ind Mrs. Ambrose Clark. H. W. Sage ?I. A. Brurne. J. E. Griffith, Joseph E. Davis, Hr--ry S. Page, E.

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 with him. 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? court line?. 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. McAuliffe to Coach Colhy WATERVILLE, Me., Jan. 12.~Colby i College athletic authorities announced to-night that John B.

Pennant Types "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. I "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. I Yale Adds Three New Elevens to Schedule for 1929 Special Corresponaence NEW HAVEN, Jan. 12.?Yale's football schedule for next fall was announced to-night by Manager Paul Trouche and contains eight games, ?seven pt them regarded' as? exacting. Only one, the match with the Univer? sity of North Carolina, is likely to 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. Th. 1 lue decided not to follow the plan recommended bv Graduate Man? ager Fred Moore, of Harvard, of play? ing _iOuble-i?eaders for its easy games. No minor New England colleges was given a place on the schedule. Brown ( and Harvard have been placed as i usual. 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 Poin. failed, the War Department authorities deeming it inadvisable that t!-e Army team como to the bowl, al? though the Navy will g_ to Princeton for a match. Yale dropped three opponents of last fall?Springfield, Tufts and Mary? land State?in order to frame a stronger date list, replacing these col? lege.- .with Carnegie Tech, Colgate and West Virginia, the last named appear I ing on the Yale schedule for the first j time. The Carnegie Tech team played 'here in 1916 and Colgate has been a ! rival of Yale regularly of late years, I although Colgate's schedule was filled last Bpring before Yale requested a grme. In 1_1<1 Yale was foitunate to win, 7 to 3, from the rugged Col? gate team. ! De.pite predictions to the contrary, Yale gave Boston College a game. No j September games and no mid-week matches whatever will be played. Only the Princeton bout will be played clse I where than in the Yale bowl. The schedule: October 2, Carnegie Tech; 9, Uni? versity of North Carolina; 16, Boston College; 23, University of West Vir? ginia;.. 30... Colgate,.. November.. 6, Brown; 13.

AH-American Selection Quits Quaker College W Heinie and Ray Miller, Brun ner, Light, Derr and Pierce Discontinue Studies Special Correspondence PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 12?Six Penn football stars have left the university and two more have announced their in? tention of withdrawing before getting their degrees, it was learned here to? night. ) "Heinie" Miller, the All-Amencan end; "Hobey" Light, "Bots" Brunner, Ray M ?Ce?, Ben Derr and "Paid" Pearce are the men who have left. Lou Little and Lud Gray have said that they may enter business within the next few weeks. Bert Bell has notified the authorities of the college department that he in? tends to withdraw, according to Dr. A. H. Quinn, Dean, but has not filed his actual withdrawal papers as yet. The former captain of the Red and Blue eleven intends to enter the auto? mobile business. The loss of Brunner and Ray Miller hits Penh the hardest, since both were expected to play on next fall's eleven. Miller has been dropped from the rolls of the university, and his with drawal amounts to i- technical sus j pension. He will not be permitted to return, according to the Wharton School authorities. Penn's brilliant end has not attended classes since the Thanksgiving Day game, and he neglected to secure a leave of absence when he left, it is said. As a consequence his absences from classes accumulated to a point where the instructors dropped him from the rolls. Brunner had a high average in his studies at the Wharton School. He attended classes regularly up to the Christmas holidays, and then left for his home in Easton." Friends received word during the holidays that Erunncr had obtained n posit'or. with the Bethlehem Steel Compai.* at Stuith Bethlehem, and that he did nof intend to return. I At the Wharton School to-day it was said Brunner also had failed to secure a leave of absence and that mless he does so his cuts will accumulate so as to result in his expulsion. In this event Brunner will not be Bble to return to Penn at any time. Urder the rules of the university a Btudent cannot resign, but can secure -n in? definite leave of absence. Brunner said he was 'Hssatisfieil last season. He alleged unfair treatment and an undeserved "panning" for his failure to catch a punt in the Penn 1 State game which resulted in a State victory, i According to members of th-j foot I ball team still in college, Brunner I was the logical choice for captain of j the team in 1921, as he had two years of varsity football left. He is twenty years old and a graduate of Ilaston High School. ? ? ? ? ? T. R. Brown Wins Gross Score Golf Prize at Pinehnrsl Special Corresponder?? PINEHURST, N.
