PHILLIES AND CUBS LOCK HORNS IAGAIN TODAY-ATHLETICS GUESTS OF WHITE SOX til
HANK O'DAY If
OF "EMERY BALL"
Cub Leader Opposed to Use
of Saliva Trick Chicago
Will Meet Phillies Again
Hank O'Day, manager ot the Cuba,
who will meet the Phillies In the Inst
game of the series this afternoon, the
weather permitting, s an avowed enemy
ot the "emery ball" anil the "spit ball."
Just because Jimmy Lavender, one of
Hank's own men, Is believed to have
used emery paper against thi Phils re
cently has no elt'ect on the beliefs of
the Chicago leader.
In the appended terms ttnnk pave
his views on the us nf emery p.iper
and sallvn. as (list ulds to the pltchei:
"I have always contended that the 'spit
ball" was out of order. It l foreign to
the same, and I think that anything
foreign to the game should be ruled
out. By the same token I think the
umpires, or some one, should prevent the
further use of emery paper, which helps
the pitcher a great deal because the
ball breaks peculiarly."
"A lot of people think that the 'ornery
kail' Is a new Institution," continued
O'Daj. "but It isn't. Of course, the use
of emery paper itself Is a novelty, but
as for rubbing the ball with a substance
that will have the same effect as emery
paper, that is Almost as old as the
game. I remember when a certain
pitcher back In the old National League
used to keep a brick, partly burled In
the box. on which he would rub thf
ball and get it fuzzy, so that It would
take sudden hops.
"Contrary to popular belief, the pitcher
does not grip the ball where It has been
rubbed. Doing that would no doubt
make the ball break more shut ply. be
cause of the added spin which the
ptlchcr would get on it, but the Ida
of the 'emery b,iir Is to have a section
of the surface rough and to hold that
surface beneath the hand when tha ball
Is delivered. This fuzzy surface offers
resistance to the air and as a natural
consequence the ball will take a fast

out. i on:' knew a pitcher who came
from the Texas Leagu. where the dia
monds were bare. In that league, after
a ball was hit i few times It became more
or less fuzzy, and the result was that th
pitchers could curve them sometime live
or six feet When thl same pitcher was
given a chance in the major l.-ngucs he
was completely lost, becaus.- on tht si ass
diamonds the balls remained smooth on
the surface and this fellow couldn't get
It to break because he hnd been accus
tomed to grip one wb.lch was not smooth.

Ey EDWARD H-. BUSHNELL
Every day marks some development
for tho bettei In the making of Penn
sylvania's backfleld. First Head Coach
Brooke brought about a decided im
provement in the kicking. The return
of Avery gave the Quakers a hackfleld
man who could get distance and helRht
to his punts. In addition to Avery two
other promising backfleld men have
shown decided Improvement in the kick
ing line. They are Irwin and Rnllou,
rival candidates for the quarterback
position. Irwin has been used at quar
ter with more regularity than Ballou.
and likewise has been used to do more
kicking, but the latter has alrendy made
his reputation as a kicker, and when
the time comes It Isn't likely that he
will be outklcked by any one. with thi
possible exception of Avery.
Yesterday Brooke concentrated his
preliminary coaching on teaching all the
backfleld candidates to catch kicks nnd
run them back through a broken field.
In this work Mrrrill nnd Hughes hav
been showing the beBt form. Biooke
