Cub Leader Opposed to Use
of Saliva Trick Chicago
Will Meet Phillies Again
This Afternoon.
Hank O'Dny, manager of the Cubs,
who will meet tho Phillies In the Inst
game of the seilcs this afternoon, the
weather permitting! Is nn avowed enemy
of the "emery bnll" and tho "spit ball."
Just because Jimmy Lavender, one of
Hank's own men, Is believed to hnvo
used emery paper against tho Wills re
centlj has no effect on the beliefs of
the Chlcngd leader.
In the appended terms Hank gavo
his views on the usa of emery paper
and sallvn, as first aids to tho pitcher:
"I have always contended that the 'spit
ball' wns out of order. It la foielgn to
the game, and I think that nnythlng
foreign to tho game should bo ruled
out. By the same token I think the
umphes, or some one, should prevent tho
further use of cmciy paper, which helps
the pitcher a great deal because tho
ball breaks peculiarly."
"A lot of people think that the 'emeiy
ball" Is a new Institution," continued
O'Day, "but It Isn't. Of couise, the use
of emery pnper Itself Is a novelty, but
as for rubbing tho bnll with a substance
that will have the same effect ns emery
paper, that Is almost as old as the
game I lcmcmbcr when a certain
pitcher back In the old National Leaguer
used to keep n brick, partly burled In
the box, on which he would rub tho
ball and get It fuzzy, so that It would
take sudden hops.
"Contrary to popular belief, the pitcher
docs not grip the ball where It has been
rubbed Doing that would no doubt
make the ball bleak moie shuiply, be
cause of the added spin which the
ptlehcr would get on It, but the Idea
of the 'emery ball' Is to havo a section
of the surface rough and to hold that
surface beneath the hand when the ball
cls delivered. This tuzzy surface offers
resistance to the nlr and ns a natural
consequence the ball will take a fast
Jump, whether It Is a fast one or a
"Juit to show how this thing works
out I on"e knew n pitcher who came
from the Teas League, whcio the dia
monds woie bare. In that league, after
a ball was hit i Tew times It became more
or less fuwy, and the result was that the
pitchers could curve them sometimes! IHo
or six feet When this tame pitcher was
Eln a chance In the major leagues he
was completely lost, because on the grass
diamonds tho balls remained smooth on
the suifjce and this fellow couldn't get
It to bicak because ho had been accus
tomed to grip ono which was not smooth.

Last Season Veteran Was

Braced for Series A's
Meet "White Sox Today.
CHICAGO, 111., Sept. 23 -Eddie Plank,
Connlo Slack's veteran sharpshooter,
who, with Bender, Is scheduled to bear
tho main pitching burden In the world's
series, Is duplicating his performance of
Inst season. In 1011, Plank went well
after tho first few weeks of the t season.
until very near tho close of tho cam
paign, when ho was forced to retire sov-
oi ul times beforo ho had fairly started
his games. Thlfl was ono of tho reasons
why nil of the Information on the Ath-

tho New Yorkers would havo beter pltch-Inc-Hut

Kddlo started, but was relieved by Wyc-

had to have help.
Again today tho Athletics will go to

victory of tho Mackmen yesterday aided
them greatly In the pennant race. The

ability the event would be held here

Tho Germantown Boys' Club, It Is said
upon good authority, Is eager to hold the
event, but the names of the other or
ganizations in tho field wore not named.
An Ideal cross-country run could be staged
In Falrmount Park, nnd It will be pleas
ing news to the local hill and dale ath

of tho national jace being decided here.
A number of local athletes are training

I Tannes Kolehmalnen, the world's great
est amateur distance runner, who re
turned to his homo in Finland four
months ago, unexpectedly returned to this
country on tha White Star liner Olympic
Tuesday The little Pinlander's return did
not become known until yesterday, when
lie repotted to Coach Ijiwsou Robertson
of tho Irish-American Athlotlc Club, un
der who?e colors ho ran white competing
in his native country.
Kolehmalnen, who is eligible for the
Russian army, had a difficult time get
ting out of Finland, and came here with
out bag or baggage mid little money He
was obliged to go through a number of
during escapades with a friend who ac
companled htm as rubber and assistant
trainer. As Kolehmalnen himself said he
"established a new record from sWand
VU oncuuu.
Every day marks some development
for tho better In the making of Penn
sylvania's backfleld. First Head Coach
Brooke brought about a decided Im
provement In the kicking. Tho return
of Avery gave the Quakers a backfleld
man who could get distance nnd lmlght
to his punts. In addition to Avery two
other promising backfleld men have
shown decided improvement ln the kick
ing line. They arc Iiwin nnd Bnllou.
rival candidates for the quartet back
position. Irwin haH been used at quar
ter with more regularity than Ballon,
and likewise has been used to do moio
kicking, but the latter has already made
his reputation as a kicker, and when
the time comes it Isn't likely that he
will be outklckcd by any ono, with thft
possible exception of Avery.
Yesterday Brooke concentrated his
preliminary coaching on teaching all tho
backfleld candidates to catch kicks and
run them back through a broken field.
In this work Men ill and Hughes have
been showing the best form. Biookc
used this kind of practice to teach his
men the art of straight-arming oncom
ing tacklers and shifting tho ball from
arm to arm .is they run. in order to
better protect thcmseUes. It was Mer
rill who stariod nt this woik in Wed
nesday's scrimmag", hut yesterday
Hughes did quite as well, making sov
cral sensational runs, in both of whleh
he outsprlnted a field of tucklers and
added to his effectiveness by his clever
dodging and straight-ai-mlng. A good
open Meld runner must master this art,
and It auguis well for the future of
the Quaker backfleld that so many of
the men are doing It so well In prac
tice. There -will bo no scrimmage today be
cause tho coaches wish to give the men
a complete rest for the Gettysburg
game tomorrow. The tremendous heat
of tho past week has resulted in 11 loss
of weight -with every man on tho squad.
To some of the men this was foi lu
nate, but others hae suffered. Still a
scrimmago practice was absolutely nec
essary to secure the hurdenlns tequlied
for a game.
Prlncetou men are showing a great deal
of elation over the fine work of liolund,
the former Lafayotto player now as
Princeton. Boland was tho Ufa of the
Tiger scrubs labt cnr nnd ho promises
to develop Into one of the stnrs of tho
varsity backlleld this fall, Ho Is so
fast nnd strong that It takes a mighty
good man to handle, him On top of this
ability he heaves tho forward pass with
unubual accuracy and skill. In every
respect he promises to glvp Princeton
the combination man thut tho Tigers
lacked in their backlleld last year.
