PENNSYLVANIA'S HOPE FOR SUCCESS ON THE GRIDIRON THIS YEAR CENTRES IN THIS GROUP OF HUSKY ATHLETES
The coaches, trainers and advisors are working like Trojans in an effort to develop a great football machine out of this band of aspiring Brickleys. The most difficult matter for the coaches now is to form a backfield that will be able to hold Its own.
BY DEFEATING PIRATES TWICE
TODAY PHILS CAN MOVE PEG
Double-Header Scheduled for This Afternoon at National
League Park Post-Season Barnstorming Tours
Will be Taken by Only Eight Local Men.
COLLINS TO WRITE
BIG SERIES FOR
While It Is mathematically possible for
the Phillies to overtake the Chicago club
ami move Into fourth place, the odds
ngolnst such a contingency are great.
There Is practically the diffidence be
tween the local National League club and
a first division plnce as there Is between
the Athletics and the Boston Hed Sox:
which mean? that the pup Is too wld".
Howcvor, the riilllles can and probably
will top the second division. Just (it the
present moment Dooln's boys aru In sixth
place, but by successfully meeting tho
Fittsburghs today In the double-header
the Pirates will be forced to exchange
places with their Philadelphia rivals.
The miserable fielding gnmo put up by
the Plttsburghers Is not likely to be re
peated this afternoon In cither game.
Taking Issue with a contemporary Is
a pastime that Is far from popular anl
generally speaking Is bordering on tho
breach of sport writing etiquette, yet wj
are bound to take exception to the dub
bing of the Pirates as "shiftless." If
there Is a club In the National League
that Is thoroughly and completely prac
ticed in the art of shifting that club Is
the Pittsburgh organization. In the tlrst
place they have shifted all over the per
centage map this season. At one time
they were so far away In the lead for
the flag that the other seven teams nl
most gave up hope. Not only have the
Pirates been nt the top, but they have
adorned the bottom. Now they are In
fifth place and are likely to be shoved
down the ladder one more rung by the

are not the ones who accompanied Char
ley Comlskey around the globe last win
ter. Those men have had enough travel
ing, and the majority of them realize
that n lest throughout the winter months
will do tliftin more good than playing.
Yet the Western trip, which will be sur
named the Athletics-Phillies tour will
only last from about October 10 until tho
same date In December. The present
roster of the two teams has only three
I'hllly names on It nnd live Athletic
plaers. The former are Alexander, Kll
Ilfer anil Hyrne. and the latter are Men
der. Hush. Schatig. Murphy and Walsh.
No doubt several of the Mackmen were
frightened away from participation In
this Invasion by the news that several
games would be played In the Hawalan
Islands, which, owing to the lack of tube
facilities, calls for an ocean voage That
Is Just what the majority of Mack's men
do not want and will not take. Ied bv
Ira Thomas, the main body of cham
pions has voted never to board a sea
going vessel if it ran he avoided Tho
trouhlo was the Slacks made a couple
of trips to Cula nnd tho young men suf
fered mal-de-mer so severely that thoy
have never forgotten It.
The easiest prediction, excepting, of
course, that the Athletics will win the
American League i-hamplonshlp. Is that
the proposal of President James A. Gll
more to have his Federal organization
pluy in the world's series will be turned
down flntlv and quickly by the members
of the National Commission. In a letter
to the three members of that august
body, the Federal head states that he
would like to have an armistice declared,
during which the winner In his league
might indulge In a friendly tilt with the
winners of tho real world's series.
The main tioublo with Mr. Gllmore's
argument is that he does not nnd cannot
prove to the satisfaction of anvono who
knows, that the Federal League Is of
major league calibre To be mre there
are a number of good players In the
league, but the "stars of world-wide
fame" of whom he speaks, can be counted
on the thumb and foretlnger.
Famous Athletic Second
Sacker Will Review Each
Game of World's Baseball
Classic in Day Following
No man In the country, with the pos
sible exception of Cbnnlo Mnck, Is half
so well qualified to write Inside baseball
as i:ddle Collins, the world's premier
second basotnan and extra-base slugger.
Kddle has consented to write a review of
each game of the approaching world's
series for tho Kvening Ledger nnd It Is
safe to say that his comments on that
baseball classic will be more widely read
than that of any other writer in America.
During the past year Collins has writ
ten h number of excellent articles which
have appeared from time to time In va
rious magazines. His "Mack nnd His
Mackmen" and "Pitchers I have Faced"
made a big hit with the baseball public
because they were splendidly written and
contained facts which no one but a great
ball player himself could know. Need
less to say Collins writes his own articles.
Furthermore he writes on a standard
typewriter with all the case of the fin
ished reporter. When all of the public
realizes that McGraw's Ideal of a base
ball player Is able to comment on tho
same as ably as he can play It, the name
of Edward Trowbridge Collins will be
raised to an even greater height In the
eyes of the fans then hitherto.
That tho Evening Ledger Is fortunate
in having Collins to write the world's
series Is not to be questioned. These
ankles will appear In all editions of the
THE WORLD'S SERIES
would bo a bit on the order of th"
'art without tho horse. It was after
the New York Giants had been so
completely routed by the Athletics
last October that John McGraw said
Kddle Collins was "the most valuable
player In the game."
Therefore the Wot Id's Series of 19H
v ithout tho
will be far from complete. For
UDDIIJ COLLINS will wrlto an after
math ot each gnmc for Philadelphia's
new afternoon newspaper.
Of course the Athletics will repre
sent the American Leogue In tho base
ball classic nobody doubts their abil
ity to cross the finish line nn oasy
winner. The National Lcaguo winner
may lie well, that's a matter of
guesswork or opinion. Anyhow, this
much Is certain
I2DDIB COLLINS and tho EVE

A storv comes here to the effect that
Shlbe Park has been decided upon as
the scene of the Army-Navy football
game. I'nquestionably Philadelphia is the
place for the game, but Shlbe Park is
not the spot for It. The Athletics' home
seats a few more than 10,000 To accom
modate the crowd which would clamor
to em the middles and soldiers battle at
least 35 Co0 seats would be necessary
Where would the extra 15,000 be placed at
Shlbe Park? It Is practically impossible,
as any one familiar with the grounds
knows. It would be Impossible without
putting new decks on the right and left
field pavilions to build teats for more
than 6000 persons. As there Is not the
remotest chance of the pavilions being
upper-decked, the proposition Is abturd.
Received a latter from Harry Edwards,
president of the O'.ympia Athletic Asso
ciation, In which he states It has al
ways been the policy of the Olympic
Association to play fair. The reason
Harry penned the note Is because he
feels that he has been done an Injustice,
he save so himself The trouble arose
when Jimmy Dougrnrtv, manager of Jack
Bhukburn, saw fit to attempt to make
a speech regarding the Blackburn-Cole-inan
match difficulty nt tho Williams
Louisiana fight Monday night. Dougherty
wanted to explain some matters of In
terest about that bout, but could not do
so because of the ensuing confusion. Here
Is what Edwards has to say, and It Is
only fair to print It for him:
"I have acquainted myself ntth all of the
detail! of the Tommy Coleman-Jack Dlack

DETROIT. Mich.. Sept. IT -Resting
with an eight-frame lead over the Red
Box, the Athletics are here today to oper
tv. three-same series with the Detroit
Tlsers. Connie Mack's last visit here
resulted disastrously as far as his In
tended record was concerned At that
time the speeding White Elephants were
jrolng at a forbidding pace arriving hero
after havlnff won nine straight games.
They proceeded to capture the first three
games of the seres without diliiculty hut
were beaten out in what would have been
their 13th successive victory.
Naturally nough the members of the
visiting club are a trifle riled over hav
ing their last winning streak broken,
hence it Is to be expected that the entire
strength of the Mackmen will be used in
he contests on the bill now.
Mack's men are In fine physical coridl-
Itlon and believe by the time they have
completed their 11 games In the West they
fvlll hftve reacneo a. poinv wiicrw nuaiuu

Manager Mack wants, because he wlshe
t take all of the regulars out of the
gaYne as soon as possible to allow them
to 'rest before the world's series begins
Ijist season tne Ainieucs una some au
vantage over the Ulants for this very
reason. They won the pennant soon
enough for the men to take just what
rest they needed, and If Connie can ac
complish this again he Is going to do It
regardless of the feelings of Detroit fan-

BACK FIELD DEVELOPMENT
TASK FOR PENN COACHES
Football Experts Concentrating all Thought and Energy
Along Those Lines Harvard, Dartmouth and Cornell
Favored in This Respect, as 1913 Quartets are Intact.
By EDWARD B. BUSHNELL
Wlillo tho coaches at Franklin Field aro
concentrating: nil their thought nnd on-
ercy upon the development of a ground
salnlnc; back field, Hnrvnrd, Dartmouth
and Cornell nro giving- thanks Hint their
veternn back field quartets of 1913 nro
Intact, and promlso to bo better thla year
than ever. Whllo theso universities havo
merely to hold their back field men to
gether, tho Quakers must fill every ono
of theso four positions with n now man.
The effectiveness of Harvard's back field
ouKht to bo greatly Increased this year,
If such a quartet could do more deadly
execution than that wrought by IJrickley,
Mnhnn, Logan and Uradlee. About all
Head Coach Percy Haughton haB to do
la to keep these men In Bhape and think
up now plays for them. Unless some
thing now unforeseen happens no pos
sible chnngo could strengthen this group.
Every man Is a star of the first magni
tude In his particular position, and tho
four work together with the greatest pre
cision. It Is Idle to dwell upon tho good
points of theso men bocauso every ono
knows how wonderfully Brickley can
drop and place kick, run tho ends and
buck the lino; how Mahnn can punt,
run back kicks and sprint around end;
how Bradlee can hit the line, and Logan
run the team.
But Pennsylvania men nre probably
moro Interested In the strength of Dart
mouth nnd Cornell behind tho lino be
cnube tho Quakers have to piny both of
theso 'teams. Dartmouth Is every whit
as well fortified here as Harvard. Last
year Llewellyn and Ghee alternated at
quarterback, but Ghee was tho better
man. Llewellyn has graduated, leaving
Ghee In full charge. Dartmouth's other
three backs are on hand again. These
Include Captain Whitney and Curtis nt
tho halfback positions, and Mm dock at
fullback. There isn't much to choose be
tween the Dartmouth nnd Harvard back
fields. That Indicates how strong Dart
mouth is. In some respects Whitney Is
a better player than Brickley. He Is
every bit ns fast, and as a line buckcr
ho is superior to tho Hnrvnrd captain.
Only In kicking Is Brickley his superior.
Ghee Is a better man to operate tho
forward pa.s than Logan. Likewise ho
runs his team faster and Is a better
Individual player. Mahan Is superior to
Curtis, but there Is nothing to choose
between Murdock, of Dnrtmouth, and
Bradlee, of Harvard. But think what a
load Is taken from tho minds of tho
Dartmouth coaches when they realize
that they now havo a back field which
can't be Improved!
Dr. A. H. Sharpe. of Cornell, may try
to Improve his back field, but ho will be
pretty well fortified even If he decides to
stand pat on his present quartette, which
did so much to win from Pennsylvania
last year. Last year's hack field 'was
made up of Barrett at quartet buck, CoII
yer and Phillip! at halfbacks and I.ahr at
fullback. On the offense Fritz, now grad
uated, was brought hack to a halfback
position. With tho exception of Wits: this
offcnslvo machine Is still nvnllable. It Is
a pretty well rounded combination, too,
nnd directed by Barrett, who is one of the
hest quarterbacks, punters nnd drop
ltlekers In the countrv
There Is no disguising the fact that at
this writing the outlook at Pennsylvania
Is not vory bright behind tho lino. There,
nro plenty of candidates for each position
who show Individual skill, but four now
men will havo to bo welded together to
act its a unit, and It would bo little short
of miraculous If thoy should show
strength comparnblo to that of tho Dart
mouth backs. So far not a man Is aurs
of a position here. It will require several
days moro of signal drill nnd oven somo
scrimmaging for tho conches to select
oven a tentative backfield.
Finding a good quarterback still re
mains Conch Brooke's big problem. lie
hno boon trying Ballon, Irwin and Mer
rill hero and nil glvo promise, though
Bullou Is by for tho most finished player
of tho lot. If tho quarterback problem Is
solved soon It will bo nn easier matter to
find thrco running mates for him.
To Pat Dwycr has been assigned tho
task of finding a centro to succeed Simp
son, of last year's team. Ho Is now con
sidering. three men for tho position, Cap
tain Journcay, Borlo, of Inst year's fresh
man team, and Butler, who played tho
position on tho scrubs. The position Is
now to Journeay, but there nro so many
big men for guard and tncklo and tho
need of a centro so pressing, that Jour
neay hopes to win tho pivotal position by
tho time tho first gamo la played. What
Journeay needs moro than anything else
Is speed, for the Pennsylvania style of
playing this position requires a man of
great activity who can take care of him
self and then lend a hand wherever he Is,
Coach Brook, of Pennsylvania, hat
picked a provisional team nnd plans to
send them through a few simple forma
tions today. The lineup of yesterday
gives some Indication of tho probablo
makeup of the team today. Captain
Journeay, aB was predicted, Is to play
centre. Ho Is tho only man definitely
placed. Flanking him for guards In tho
present lineup will bo "Wltherow and
Nowald; at tackles, Harris and Russell;
nnd ends. Carter and Rockefeller. Irwin
Is to start out at quarter and Moffet at
fullback. Gotwels and Jones will fill In.
This combination will be shifted fre
quently. Murdock and Tucker alternate!
with Carter and Rockefeller at end yes
terday. Mike Dorlzns continues to Im
provo nnd Ii pretty sure to make a place.
Ilnllou and Merrill had turns with "Doc"
Irwin at the pilot position. Vrceland did
not put in an nppenranco, as he Is study
ing for nn examination. Mathews re
lieved Moffet at Intervnls. He Is big anJ
Bpeedy nnd as consistent a drop kicker
as thero Is on the field. Gotwels at
half modo n good Impression. lie Is a
little light, but his wonderful speed makes
up for that deficiency. Hughes Is likely
to bo n dark horse. Although in school
last year, he did not play. He caught
on tho freshman baseball team last year.
Jack Dalton, nll-Amerlcnn quarterback
on the Navy team, was out today to
Of last year's team. Crane, Simpson,
Marshall nnd Peden were out. Mercer,
the old American fullback of two years
ago, was also present. Among the older
graduntos wcro noticed Dr. Robert Torry,
Davisson Kennedy, Bill Young nnd I'har
lie Corson. Ben Cllne, Swarthmore's
captain, was also n morning visitor
