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
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
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.

Last winter Connie Mack had ft new
steel llag pole constructed and placed In
the northeast corner of Shlbe Tarlc. 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
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
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

Fted Sox won theirs the stundint; would

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

iirx work. They, therefore, will begin

Gridiron Nevs Gleaned From Leading Colleges
Football Players Enter Upon
Another Hard Week of
Training in Preparation for
Big Games Next Saturday.
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
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

In addition to tho ten regulars. It has
been the custom for the team holding tho

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.

Connie got thnt youngster straight from

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

he'll drag down tliree. An' that's enough'
to show thnt ho can twirl that o' Itcach

eleven, has announced that he will return
to the school, and there should be joy In

a star football player, but has made good
on track nnd field.
Visitors to the Olympin Athletic Asso

whirlwind action Is liable to prove too
great a strain. "Kid" Williams, the

Is warning enough.

The nnnual football season has opened

"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

The Athletics will have nn off-day to
