12 EVENING LEDGEK-IHIL'ADELPHIA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1014. DOOIN'S CLUB PLAYS ST. LOUIS HERE TODAY-MACKMEN ENGAGE CLEVELAND NINE PHILLIES LAST WEEK TRAVELED AT WINNING CLIP Won Eight Games Out of Nine in Seven Days, Hav ing Piled Up 50 Runs on 82 Base Hits. The past week lint been otic nC al most perfect prosporlt.v In the rntika of the Phillies. In this time the Daisies havo played nine games on lite homo Kiotinds and have won eight of thorn. Lost Momlav nftcrnoun the Glattts wero hero for n double-header and. after the local men had lost the open ing tilt, they went after their pennant aspiring opponents, completely batter ing down their defense and winning out easily, 10-C. That was the signal for the best l'hllly sprint of tho year. This victory over Now York seemed to put new life Into the men and they havo been pining a brand of halt frotu that Uato on. which, If kept up for threo weeks nt one given period In the season, would practically have tlnclied the flog fm them, provided of course thev had plned f.llily well at other time. Just what lias litpivined t the Phil lies to wake (hem up to om.ltctely Is ihaid to eav Cvety one who lun watched the locnl National Leaguers irulizcs that the.v have the latent rower. The trouble was that tho teclpo for transforming their potential energy Into kinetic could not bo discovered. For the time being, at least, this ttans Xorrnatlon has taken place, but unfor tunately the exact cause Is hnrd to as certain. Possibly rich man icallzed simultaneously that he was not putting his whole abllit.v Into th( game. That would be sutllclcnt to explain their splendid work of the past seven days. Outside of the fetllng of general sat isfaction over the eight consecutive vic tories, local fans rejoice with Grov.-r Alexander at his success. Tho Invinci ble right-hander has brought his util ising maik up to 2.") games, two of which were won In the paht wv-k. Those VS winning shots tired into the ranks of the allied enemy give Alexan der $10)0, the bonus promised him bj the Philadelphia club If he would win 21 games for them during the season of 1914. More strongly than anything else do the figures for tho week indicate the Hying pace which tho Phillies hae bton setting. Last Monday morning the locals were in sixth place nnd were exactly nine games behind the Cubs, the club which at that time stood In fourth notch. Todav the Phils are In fifth place, but what is more important 'irxntihis Ir. that they have cut down their distance from the first division to four and a, naif iraran, that in, thej have split the lead of the fourth place team in two in tho coue of n week. Tho Cardinals, who have been leplaced In third position by the Cub'', are not only just four and a half games ahead of the Phlllie. but. judging by the brand of ball put up by the contending clubs here on Saturday, they are apt to have their lead cut dow n to two ami a. half games beforn departing. This afternoon and tomoi row the rhllllcs and Cardinal meet in theli final contests of the yeni. The games will bgin at 3 o'clock at the National League Park. Should the locals continue their splendid piajing of last week thev will have better than a lighting chance for the first division, whcie on individual juerlt they certalnlv should finish Just what the Phillies have done in nn ofTonsIvo wav during the past week can be clearly seen by the appended figure G.P. "Won Lost p c Phillies 0 8 1 .&0 Opponents ! 1 s .111 Runs neored By Phillies, SO; bv op. ponents, 27. Base hits By Phillies, , by op ponents, 74. Extra bases By Phillies, HO: by op ponents, ;c. Total bases By Phillies, 10S; by op ponents, l'. In the field, too, the Phillies have put a great same. They have played tight ball In every department, hence thev havo been able to hold tlulr opponents to a. minimum number of runs on tho hits garnet ed, while they themselves have scored a maximum on the total hits b improved work on the buses. It is true that on moro than out occasion last week, Doom's people lost runs by not taking advantage of opening on the of. feme, yet on the whole, they have done better In this respect than at any tiros during the pisem campaign. Fred Luderus' lav-uff hus done the first stacker a wonderful amount of good Jmt how long he vvnulil have been on tin bench but for un accident, no one cm na, but It i liii ky foi the Phillies tlig the accident happened. In tin dial game of Thursiiai's duuble-heuder with liu bursh, Heals Becktr was put out of the same foi ntguing with the unipii. when lie was called nut on strike Jihfrvvooii Jlagee, who had been piajing" (list up to that time, whs shifted to left Held und Luderus went in ut tin?t He was ut bat that game, but In the wcond half of the matinee he sent u tiuivl) double to light centre, which gave the Phillies tilth two and only tuns Since then Dooin has verj ptopcrly seen fit to keep Luderut. In the anu The plajer hus proved tlut his muiiuger made no mistake. Since his return to the garao Fred has been up a dozen times, has scored four runs and has made peven hlt.s for eight base. Uis batting average for tht-se games has been .5M Though the Phillies cannot win the pennant themselves. It ma.v be up o iem to decide who shall win in ihe tlonal League. I'uless either Boston New Vork un math, malleoli v clinch ; flag before October 5, the locals will rt 'the cvnosun of the eje of the base- b vvoild On that date the Pooiuites beAhl a series vviih the ;i.inU. vvblta the BrsSves will U plaiu. actus the Itiook- Jyuj bridge in t'hailes Hbbetts' stadium Tills is a foi lunate ciicumstance for the club owners of the Phillies and Brooklyn because the crowds at those two series are suie to be the largest of the season, and as neither of the afoie said clubs has made any vast amounts of money this e.ir, tho will bo enabled, thanks to the cIom-ii? of the race, to Bee the "coin How into their coffers.

PERSONAL TOUCHES IN SPORT i. t hi i nlnrado mi '. Mi' i: l. !.oarj. West Chester, in? I.aM week was ono of the most sttenu oui of the season from a golfing point of view, the tipen c-liamplonshlp of Philadel phia at the M'hltomarsli Valley Countr.v Club ami the Invitation tournament of the Philadelphia Cilcket Club at St. Mar tin's ptiivldlng Bomo splendid sport. The open ehnmplotihlp biousht out tho heit lleld In the history of the event, although an usual very few amateurs competed. The success of the tournament was un douhtedl.. due to the fact that play was extended to S2 hole's Instead of 3t!, as In previous j ears, nnd thnt the prize money amounted to JiOO. Tom McNnmnra, of Doiton, gained a very popular vlctoiv with a line score of SO." strokes for the 72 holes. Xot a single local profe.'ilonnl managed lo get In the money, although .lock C.tn.pbell, of Old Vork load. Ifd the .Held at the end of the flist day's plu The uunllf.vlng round of the invitation tournament of the Golf Association of Philadelphia fot the Junior championship of Philadelphia will be plajed at tho .Mel lon Crii'ket Club today. On account of the oponins; of the schooh It has been deemed necessary to change the sched ule somewhat. It was orlglnallv in tended to play the qualifying lotiml thin morning, but in order to give those who attend school nn opportunity to quallfj play will continue nil day. The match play rounds will also take place in tho nfternoons Instead of In tho momlngi. The tournament should he a. highly suc cessful one. The young players of this city nre nt last malting tholrf prosence felt in competitions, Clement B. Web ster, Jr., Norman II, Maxwell, Xj. M Washburn, P. U Cot son, C. D. P. Town send and M. M. .luck, all of whom, we believe, are eligible, have already made a name for themselves, and It will cause no surprise at all If some temarkably good scores are turned In. The annual tournament for the Beithel lyn cup, piesented by Mr. Caleb P. Pox, will be competed for at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club this week. The nunllf.ving round will bo played tomorrow, and the mttch play lounds on Wcdnes day. Thui.-da. Prldny nnd Saturday. It Is piobable that manj of the women who competed In the national championship at Nassau will be on hand, and the competition for the coveted trophy should be exceptionally keen. Tomouovv, in ad dition to tho qunllfyinK round, there will be a driving competition and a put ting and npproachltn? competition, while on Trlday there will be a rnKed foursome. When Smith or Green or Urown or Jont3 piles up o. couple hundred bones by good hard work an' pluck, somu nghbor's always on tho Job to wield a hammer on his knob an' talk nbout his luck. Hut Smith or Green or Brown or Jones cankeep his couple bundled bones an' let tho neighbor spout. It's Just that way with Whltey Doak. Ills knockers knock until they choke, but Whltey still holds out. Bill doesn't always last nine frames, but what'H tho dlff? He wlno his games. He's pUBhcd the Cards up lop. He pitches ah tight long enough to let his pats put on the stuff make runs enough to cop. When Hugglns hr to derrick Bill a rescue man can take the hilt wllh one swell working lead. However Whltey docs tho trick, he does It. It s results tint t stick. It's plants thut count, not seed. Bill's bush league was the O. &. P., which busted 'fore nii-nlne-onc-threo. He plavcd with Akron's gang. Ho tried out once a week or so with Clncy's Beds. They let him ro. Then Hugglns' siren sank Last year Bill pitched a couple time, but didn't Janglo nny chimes or even ting tho bell. Look at hlni now, though. SutTerln' hnml He sura makes Rood that epigram: "One never quite can tell." Copyrighted by A. M. Corrlgan. The following contributed bit of poetry was handed In by H. C. B., and Is right timely, so here goes: While the Giants and tho Braves are fighting It out, The "A'b" have tho pennant, of that thcte's no doubt, And whoever they meet, we expect some thing soft. But there's no telling what those Braves may pull off: For It they win the fla gin the National J.eajrue, Thej'ro a new combination nnd look Pictty big; Bill whoever plajs in the serlos to come, To beat Connie Macy, they will havo to "go some." They'ie off again today in the scramble Into the stretch for the National League pennant and a slice of the world's scries swng. With only 15 moro playing days left and IS games to play, tho Giants face tho tasslt of their lives to shake the Braves from their three-game lead. If Stalllngs continues to hold his men to tho pace they havo shown since July 6, tho Giants can't afford to lose a single one of thu remnlnlng battles. The Braves havo 20 more games to play and show no signs of letting up from the ..TIG gait cut out for themselves whon they started their wonderful dash for the top. It Is not likely the Braves will slow down to a .500 clip, but, getting down to the "Ifs" of tho matter, If they should win only ten of their remaining 20 games, the Giants must Tvln 13 out of their remulnlng 19 to win. Should Boston win 12 of tho remaining 2d and lose eight, tho Giants havo stiff work ahead, as then they must return the winner In 13 of their remaining gnmes, dropping only four. Fourteen vic tories for tho Braves will mean that the Giants must stack up 19. Here's the answer as to why tho Ath letics persist In leading tho American League: For this season they lead tho lensue in club batting, fielding, sacrl ce hitting, base running and runs.

BUSHNELL Tho Cnrllslo Indians usherrd In thD 1014 football season on Saturday in their usual vigorous manner when they heat Alhrlirht ColleRe by the seoio of &) to 0. After hav ing had nearly two weeks of cool, brnclriK weather for their preliminary piuctlce they had to endure a hot, sultrj. after noon for their first same, condition.; which vvcte most unsatisfactory for good football. The Indians' score was live points less than they made agnlnst this bame team last jear, hut the Hodmen fumbled any an opportunity for another touchdown When these facts aie tun-t-ldi'red together with the statement that the visitors had as much weight as the Indians we know nt hast the Indians niu no weaker than thev whid last year Tho coming week will o the first foot ball games hv nil the members of lh "Big Hix." All look to have fairlv eay opponents for the llr.st games, though i Cornell men are living In some trepidation over the outcome of Saturday's gain" with the University of Pittsburgh Cor nell will havo a warming up for this con i test by pla.ving I'rvslnus on Wednesday their only mid-week game of the 1011 sea i sou. Last ear Pltthburgh beat Cornell by the score, of 20-7, this game being the sixth on the Cornell scedule I A -ar ago Cornell opened with I'r sinus and beat tho men from College 1 vllle. Pa., by tha score of 41-n, am I theie is apparently nr. reason why Co ' nell shouldn't score a similarly ea t victory this year. But that game vvlP ! Pittsburgh threatens to be a contest o another character Cornell blames moM of the Pittsburgh's 30 points last ra rpun the prowess of ex-Captnln W.ni nei a man who was fit for un end posl tlon on nny all-American team. Pltts buigh has just nt. good a team this year rlthough Cornell ought to bo even stronger for this Initial game than In 1D13 Pittsburgh is Mill being coached by Joe Duff, the old Princeton and all American guard, nnd his friends sas he has lost none of his cunning. Like wise Pittsburgh has tho advantage o' nn early start, nnd although Corner has tlor.o moro preliminary work this er than usual tho Ithacans will find Pittsburgh n tough pioposltlon. 1 If last year's score rould he taken as , i criterion the game between Yale and I Slalne should be n near championship affair, because the Maine eleven la.' ear had tho distinction of holding Yale I to a 0-0 tie Hut It ehould be said tha na p!ed an In and out game last I fail and the brand of football displayed j against Maine Indicated a slump more I than unusual strengh on Maine's pa' l The Ells are never humiliated at the hands of a ?mall collego twic In suc- ceselon. and the chances ate that they will strive for a decisive lctory at I l-ast. Tt Is a notable fact that Yule does not open the season this year with Wesleynu, i which from time Immemorial has been Hie Klis' Initial opponent. Ilu this jear the .Middletown collegians decided that the Yale game, particularly this eatly, did i then; more harm than good, because they never had a chance to win and had to enduio a good deal of battering Just to afford practice for Yale, Some other small colleges have awakened to this 1 truth, and nil the big universities have i had more ditllculty this car in eched- ' ullrs minor colleges of sufficient strength for the preliminary game. I Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth and JVnnsjlvanla all have what ought to be ' easy xaroes Harvard plays Rates, a teum whleh the Crimson beat last jear 1 rather ea'dlv bv the eenre of 14 to 0. In ! psinuch ss Harvard has n veteran team I the chances are that the Crimson can j ion up a nut of whatever magnitude it , desites. ih ush Hates has teen known to ' make trouble The Rutgers eleven, which had the hon or of drawing first blood on the Prince ton Tigers last jeor when the score was I 14 to 3 in Princeton s favor, plays In I Tlgertown on Saturday Much of ?lut- , cere' 1313 strength was due to the poie- slot) of a. board of three coaches, chief of 'mmm-tpxi old Yale centre. But Rutgers also had good material, and since Sanford is at New Brunswick onco moro Rutgers will be disappointed not to hold Frlnccton to a cloe score again. Dnitmoutli found tho Massachusetts Agricultural Collego an unusuallj active antagonist last year ami was able to win by a score of only 11 to 3. Dart mouth opens with the same eleven Sat urday, and the wearers of the Green hope to roll up a more respectable score. They ought to do It, too, because their wonderful backllcld of last jear Is in tact and they hnve had the advantage of more than threo weeks of practice. Because of tho prominent place Dart mouth holds on Pennsylvania's schedule this year tho Quakers will match their work with a great deal of Interest. Dart mouth has the same coach this year, TiaiiK Cavannugh, the old end, a man Dr. Carl Williams pronounces to be one it the brst in the country. The game on Franklin Kitld will bo the first of the senBon, not onlv for Pennsylvania, but for Gettjsburg as well. r.ast year Penn beat the men from the anious battlefield by tho scotn of 51 o 0. There will be a goodly number of -xperiinents In the Quaker eleven this veat, nnd for that reason it need not be expected that Saturday's scor will equal tho 1913 figures, Gettysburg has the same coach as last ear, the man 'n charge being Mautlie, the old Penn 'tato fullback. If Mauthe has the ma terial and can develop it to play as well is he played himself .tysburg would ) much feared, for Mautho was one of he best fullbacks that ever Btepped on 'ranklin Keld. There will bo a lot of speculation all his week to learn what men Head Coach trooke will pick for his Initial llue-up. Prihahly Brooke himself won't know un il the day before tho game. The sifting mocess is still going on. and the merits inil demerits of every plajtr me being carefully analyzed not. only by Brooke, but by his assistants. But the chnncea are that the first deveu men to line up 'oi Pennsylvania will be last year's reg ulars or substitutes as far as that lb possible. Thete nro some new men who In piactlcp promise to he much better than the 1013 regulars, but for the most part they will not get Into the rfay until tho game Is well under way. The Quaker coaches have reason to feel well phased with the tesults of their "rst week's work, for they have accom nllshed more than nnv one thought pos. hie in so hhort a time. Not only have hey taueiit the rudiments nf the game 'airly well to a big squad of candidates, but thev have carefully studied and tested the merits of all the men and sorted them out until they have gotten all the can didates working for the positions for which they seem best fitted. From tackle to tackle Pennsylvania has available a line which will average close to Sf0 pounds per man. As far na weight and strength are concerned, the men te ferred to are about all that could be de sired. But these nuallflcatlnnH are only about ono-half of what will be required. In addition to weight an dstrenplh, they must dlsplav speed and football sense Some of the men who now look big enough and sttong enough to push a house over may h.-wo to be discarded vet for men welchlnc or to pounds less because modern football requires men of speed and cleverness About all that can be said of most o fthls quad of linemen is that thev are making progress It Is Imnnsslbla tn be much moro BppcKle now An odd situation exists as far as the ends and hacks are concerned The qual ities necessnrv to plav on the ends or in the harkfleld are much the same Fver since the prnctlc opened the roaches have been In douht coneernlns' some of the men whether thev would he better on the ends or In the hick 11!d At anv time thev mleht be 'shifted back and forth and It Is to be honed that when these shifts are made they -will he made with the ame Intuition or luck as when Boy Mercer first came out for football When he arrived the coaches resolved to make an end out of him, but a train of back field Injuries made it necessary t put him In tho back field. He almost 1 stantly becamo a star In his new posit . nnd by this accidental substitution fair ond was converted into a scintilla lug back. How the ends and backs will bo plnji this vcar will depend upon the way tl candidates develop. With an oveisupp of capnblo back the surplus can be list as end candidates and vlco -veisa. Enough was shown in Saturday's fit scrlmmngo to stietigtlicn the Impressl. crcnted by their woik nil week that Go wals nnd Matthews, who plajed ha! bark and fullback on last year's fresl man team, can only be kept off tho tea by the nppoarnnco ot some nnusaial high-class backs. Gotwals, while student at the Central High School, wi a man of great speed and cleverness. P Is faster and stionger than over nn and ought to bo it splendid back. Rr Mercor, who coached the freshman olevt last sear, declared that Matthews, tvh captained and played fullback on th team, was one of tho best freshma backs ho had ever seen. Mntthev weighs nbout 190 pounds, but he seen to be tho fastest man for his weight o the squad. Tho Penn coaches are still working o the problem of quarterback. livvh Ballou and Merrill are the favorites now but it is a toss up which one will ho tl i final selection. Tho couches are glvln' Irwin every chance In the vvoild to make good. Ballot! has had the most expen enco of the three and may develop int the best man when the critical gamr come. With tho loturn today of Avery anu Bolgor, last year's halfbacks, the list of 'vurslty candidates at cnnsjlvnnia la com pleted. Theso men will bo a strong nddl tlon to tho sqund. Avery, while a. Uttlr inconsistent last year, showed great stuff at times. With the ndvnntage of lib year of experlenco ho should be moro de Iiendable this year. His speed and de fensive strength may cause him to be tried nut nt end. Bulger was In poor phslcal condition last year, but at that bhowed good prom ise. 'He Is also a punter of no mean abil ity ns well as a drop kicker. AVhlle last week was spent ch!efl In conditioning work, tho really heavy prac tice will start this week, with plenty of scrimmage and tackling drill The num her of men out for each position arouse some bitter sciimmages. No very good line on tho make-up of the team can be gained yet. It is all de pendent upon the men under lire A man may be whirlwind In signal practice but yet lack the stuff In scrimmage. The scrubs-under Coach Hornby Gas ton havo been developing Into n unified team and may be expected to put up theli usual snappy game. In Berry, who is Ineligible for 'varsity, Gaston will have a valuable man. Ho kicks them a mile and is u stieak streak with the ball, be. sldeB being a wonderful Held general Ho Is also a good tra k man, having several times done the half inside two minutes OLYMP1A A.

ATHLETICS PLAY CLEVELAND TODAY; RIVALS IN DETROIT Mackmen Have Pennant Virtually Won Red Sox Gained One Full Game on Leaders Last Week.
