s iv tj-MP- 2 EVENING TlflTJlll-PHILADELPHIA, MOMjA'V, SEPTEMBER 28, lDU. i MACICMEN SURE OF PENNANT NOW-PHILADELPHIA PLAYERSIMAY GET AUTOMOBILES PHILADELPHIA ARE Hi LINE FOR CHALMERS TROPHY MACK'S ATHLETICS LEAGUE CHAMPIONS FOR SIXTH TIME K IS h Eddie Collins, Alexander and Magce Have Wrought Nobly This Year Phils Play Reds Today. When the committee appolntrd for that purpose awards the Chalmers' trophies lor I3ll the names of rhllndc-lphlatis are npt to stand at the top 111 both the American and National Leagues. The three men who have tlto chance to be honored by this annual award ore Ud.lle Collins, of the Athletics, and drover Alexander and Sherwood Magce, of the Phillies. Hugh Chalmers, the donor of the auto mobiles, suggested that tho committee give the prizes not to tho man who, in their opinion, was the most nnlshed per former In each league, but to the player nho had bem most valuable to his team. This suggestion has been and will be followed this year. No matter what details are to be con eldcred, It Is dllllcult to ee how Eddlo Collins could be overlooked. He Is not only recognl2il by most experts n the world's gieateit bttl plaer. but he has been thl3 se.ison the most valuable man on the AUlotus' team. OIllcluls Of t o "Whlto Elephants and others have often been heard to declare emphatically that tho Athletics weie not a one-man team. To a certain extent that Is true, but If .Eddie Collins had not been on Mack's roster this year and had not played the wonderful game that he did the Ath letics would todav be out of the pennant raco Instead of having It won for the -sixth time. That Connie Mnclt realized fully the value of his crrrat second saeker was shown when he permitted him recently to sign a contriot at his (Collins' I own terms. Mack ktio.v that, without Collins tho odds would e asalnst his winning for at least two e.tr to come. Hence, after tho Federal Le.icue had made Eddie one of the most (l.itterlnt; offers over submitted to a baseball player, he was In a position to dictate the terms of his contract for the futuie, and he did. Incidentally, the Evk.vino Ledoeu Is tager to announce thit It has secured the services of this great player as a writer of the world's series. Eddie Is going to play, of course, and is going to write tho news himself. That Is more than any other bull plaer can say. Ed die Is golns to be the author of the "write-ups" In the Evening Lftxirr and is going to work out the material himself. Vhllo not equaling the actual baseball ability of Collins, both Alexander and Captain Magec, of the Phillies, have sur passed the Athletics' star In relative util ity. Those two men have kept the heads of the Phillies above water. The disin tegration of thl ilub's strength by the ravages of the K. deral League has been retarded to a certain extt-nt by the mas terful plav of Pooln's pitcher extraordi nary and heavy Mttlne utllltv man. Tho use of the term 'utility man" here Is not meant to convey the iea of "substitute," which Is its usual meaning In baseball, but a term which.' means an all-round player. Sherwood Magee has put up the great est game of his career this year, not ex cepting his work in ISKp, when he led the National Lcacup In batting with an average of .331 ami took part In 1VJ games. He has plael seven positions for Charley Pnoln nml has played them all in better than acceptable style. Alexander, too, has done remarkably well, considering the Inditferent work of the team as u whole behind htm. On Saturday "A!e" won his 1.1th consecu tive victory and !- 27tb . r the season.

The pole cost the Athletics approximately Jllflo. Itecent events have proved that tho outlay was not watcd, as another Amer ican League pennant has been won to be unfurled from this new masthead. Tho chances are tho world's championship banner of 1014 will also l1y there. When Connie Mack glanced over the percentage columns yesterday morning at his hotel In St. Louis, ho mut have cas ually noted the fact that If lil team won from the Browns, and tho Hod Sox were bpaten once In their afternoon's double header, that he would clinch the cham pionship. This led to tho selection of Charles Albert Homier to put tho llnal crimp in the aspirations of the Fenway Park dwellers by defeating itlckey's men. Bender has always been effective against St. Loul. . Yesterday ho was more than effective. Ho mowed down tho opposition with that calm regulatity which marks nil his work. The Rickey didn't have a chance to score, while the Maekmen plied up half a dozen runs. By capturing the pennant In 1014. Con nie Mack has established a world's man agerial record, having won six (lags In Ban Johnson's circuit since the inception Of the league in 1001. In 1002, the llrst year Mack's Athletics won the pennant, there was no world's aeries. In l'JOJ, his second victory, the Athletics were defeated In tho classic by New York, four games to one. In 1010, after a lapse or Ave years, Mack ngain steered Ills club to the front, winning the pennant and also the world's series, beating tho Cubs In decisive fashion, after the ma jority of experts had picked Chance's men to have a walk-over. The following year, the flag again was perched on a Philadelphia pole and again the Athletics landed the world's series, winning tln-lr llrst one from the Giants. In 1012, Mack met reverses which put his club In third place at thf finNh. tho Ked Sox finishing first nnd the Washing ton team second. Las.t season, with what was predicted t'i he a notoriously weak pltrhlng staff, the Athletics came to the front, thanks to the .splndll work of Plank and Bender, winning with ridlculoii" i-asn. and on'.v being out of first place four days during the entire campaign. For th third time the Giants were Mack's ilvuls in the world's serifs and for the second timu tho Athletics won tho i-tri.-s, winning four out of the five games played. Tne standing of the Athletics today hWiwb that they have a lead of eight and a half nanus. Both the Macks and tho Hostonlans have eight more games tu plav. Therefore, If the Atliletlf Club l"Kt all of its remaining games, while the Fted Sox won theirs the stundint; would Won. Lost. Pot. Athletics S3 57 .025 IV-d Sox 05 K .C21 Ir. order to get his club In perfect shape 1 1 meet the Boston Braves, who have all but won the pennant in the Xatlonul League, Connie Mack will give his regu late a rest. Just which onm will coino h'.nie frnn St. LouH, instead of making the trip t' Wellington, h.t not been an nounced It Is f-afe to say. however, that lmth Bendnr and Plank will b In Phila delphia within th next few hourn I'pon the.se vnteran hurlern will fall the tasl: of doing the majority of th iirx work. They, therefore, will begin immedlatflv to get In ahape. The other ir.tinwnt of the squad who feel that they ive. n r.'M wlU take )t.

TJUSHNELL WliLther or not Pennsylvania will have a football team of championship propor tions ot one of only mediocre strength was not disclosed by Saturday's game against Gettysburg. That 11-0 victory was won by a comfortable mat gin, and pretty accurately gauges the comparative strength of the two team. At the same time, when i. remember the defeneless ness of Gettysburg last enr and the smashing victory which the Quakers won then by tho score of 53-0, two facts stand forth with great cleamc-s. One Is that this year's Gettysburg team knew more football than its predecessor ana likewise that it displayed a better fighting qual ity. A second fact not to be overlooked Is that thli year's Quaker team Is not nearly o far advanced In Its attacking power as was tho 1913 eleven In its first game. Virtually all of the faults evident In the work of the Ited and Blue were due to lack of practice, an entirely new back Held and lack of unity between the back fleld and tho line. These weaknesses Acre to bo expected and won't cause tho coaches undue alarm. In fact, a H-0 score for the llrst game is much more desirablo than one of B-0 proportions. Nothing retards the progress of n team more than ovorconddenco, and big pre liminary scores invailnbly contrlbuo to that. The Quakers still have plenty of time to get in shape for their big games, nnd the schedule has been so graduated that each Saturday brings a tougher op ponent to Franklin Field. Harvard overwhelmed Bates by the score of II to 0. and If the Crimson wterons had been kept In the game they could probably hac scored nearly UO points. At Is was, nearly three elevens got into the play The most conspicu ous feature of the work done by tin new men was the feat of JteKllnloek, a substitute qua.terback. In scoring a field goal from the 10-ynrd line. Now Harvard, ln'adclltion to the Incomparable drop-kickers. Hriekley and Mahan, has fo-ind a third such kicker. Ynle made good the prediction of Frank Hinkey. the new coach, and dlplnycd a lot of open-fle'.a work, which fnlrlv dazzled the .Maine eleven.

PLAN 1915 LESLEY CUP MATCHES TO BE MORE INTERESTING Representatives at Dinner in New York Decide to Have Four Picked Men From Each State. There Is a possibility that tho trlstato matches for tho Robert W. Lesley Cup will be far more Intrtestlng another yenr If the plnns talked over at tho dinner to the contestants from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania by the Metropolitan Oolf Association at Baltusrol arc put into effect. Tho plan Is to havo four men selected from each district, preferably thoso who linvo played In past Lesley Cup matches, In addition to tho ten regulars. It has been the custom for the team holding tho cup to lay idle tho llrst day, meeting tho wlntieis on tho second day in tho de cisive match for the trophy. Under tho new plan the four extra men from each district will form a team of their own and play u sociable match with the cup holders tho llrst day. ANOTHERT0YD0G SHOW TO BE HELD BY FANCIERS HERE For a Very Worthy Cause, as It Is to Be for Benefit of Red Cross .Society, No vember 14. Tho Toy Dog Fanciers of America will bold another show November 14. This exhibition will bo for tho benefit of tho Ited Cross Society. This event should draw ono of the largest entries In "toys" that this town hai ever seen. A big list ot valuable specials should also help to draw entries. It was decided at a meeting of the fnn clors to have this shown an open ono for all dogii of the toy vaiiely, so, with all tho other Inducements offered to bring out the exhibitors, nn entry llst.ot nt least 1!00 dogs will likely tesult. Judges were also named, as follows-. JI. Duiilevy, of Mcadowbrook, Pa., to pnss on l'otiicrnnlani! Mrs. lleiijnmln II.

PERSONAL TOUCHES TN SPORT The home-grown and the homc-muda brand of everything In every land Is rated pretty high. The farmer likes his home-grown sass nn there's an undis puted class to mother's home-mado pie. That home-made hunch hit Connie Mnck somo spv'ral baseball seasons back, lie tiled It with succes:'. Ho mido Shlbo r.-irk his garden plot an' raised young pitchers till he'd got a pretty classy mess. Tnko Woldon Wyckoff, graduate. OP Connie got thnt youngster straight from liiickiiell's college nine. The kid's birth place was Wllllamsport, whore Ms Six JIattv learned the sport an' first began to shine. The birthplace, maybe; didn't count, but Connie saw a vast amount ot promise in the kid. lie brought him up three years ngo an' worked hlr. culllvator slow, so Woldon wouldn't skid. This year he works his reg'lar day. Ho goes right In an" fires away with all a veteran's skill. In live games pitched he'll drag down tliree. An' that's enough' to show thnt ho can twirl that o' Itcach pill. For 22 he's goln' some. 'Mack banks on him for years to come to help cop more burgees. lie's learned a lot In Connie's school. He'll stick, too, If ho ain't a fool, to take some more degrees. Ily A. M. Corrlgnn. "Joe" Guyon, one of the speediest In dians on last year's Carlisle Indian eleven, has announced that he will return to the school, and there should be joy In the Aborigines' camp. Guyon Is not only a star football player, but has made good on track nnd field. Visitors to the Olympin Athletic Asso ciation tonight should be sure they are not suffering with hcait nllmrnt, ns whirlwind action Is liable to prove too great a strain. "Kid" Williams, the wnild's bantamweight champion, Is to meet "Kid" Herman, of I'ekln, 111. That Is warning enough. Oscar Kgg, of Switzerland, won the 13 mlle tnndem paced match fiom George Viley and "Jimmy" .Morgan at the New ark Velodromo yesterday. Poor 'Wiley and Morgun couldn't beat an egg. J. K. M. The receipts of the "World's Series games nio divided ns follows: fiO per cent, of tho receipts of the 111 st four games goes to tho players, to be dl Ided HO per cent, to the winners and 40 per cent, to the loseis; "0 per cent, goes to the two clubs, and 10 per cent, to the National Commission. Tho receipts of all games after the llrst four Is divided B0 per cent, to the clubs and 10 per cent, to the National Commission. The nnnual football season has opened nnd the gridiron warrior now makes his bow: In helmet, padded suit and guards, he steps upon the stage, to cop his bit of notice on the dally sporting page. Persons who wero so keen about bet ting 3 to 1 and 4 to 1 against the Iimvc-s' wot Id series chances a few weeks ngo nre not offering anything better than 5 tu I Just now. It's qutto likely that the teams will go into the llrst game at even money. I.ajole, after making his 3O00tli hit yes terday, Is reported to havo said: "I liopo to linger long enough in major leaguo company to bat out nnothcr thou sand or so." Tho International league season wound Up yesterday with Providence ns the pen nant winner. Although the clubs put up one of the tightest laces in the history of the league, tho season was a llnnncial failure. "Josh" DcvoiV Is rapidly becoming a second Ira Thomas. Ira has fallen Into mole soft money than any man 'n base ball. "Josh," however, at the prercnt rate, will make a retold close to Thomas'. "Josh" wasn't good onough for the Giants, hence he wns turned loose on the un stable baseball llimanicnt. lie was shunted around tho league, until he fi nally landed In Hoslon. Now "Josh" is about to cut In on another big slice. A parallel to "Josh" Devoro's good for tune in getting in on .world's series money, because he was not up to the standard, Is found In tho case of "Johnny" I.nvan. Last year Johnny was with the Browns. lie wns such an In different performer at the bat, that when Connie Muck wanted a shoitstop lo till In when Harry was hurt, "Johnnv" was turned over to the Athletics immediately. "Itube" Olilrlng tried his hand at short during Harry's nbjenco from the game and played sn well that Lnvan wns not used at all. La van, however, wns on tho bench during the world's series and got his full shaic of the coin. Von Old, tho Athletics road secretary and human dynamo, Is nbout to get Into nctlon. "Wot Id's seiles aio his specialties. We note that in another column of this edition It Is remaikid that the llrst busi ness ot the National Commission lu-ia next Wednesday will bo to toss the cola tn ascertain where tho first world's se ries games will bo played. Wrong. That'll the second thing. The Athletics will have nn off-day to morrow. The schedule makers miiot have "doped" out Just when they would clinch, tho ling and arranged It so they could plan ways to pi event any of tho world's series money getting uwny from them.
