During the last two months of startling hascball 5XSnn. h. PhllHm have been somewhat overlooked by tho general public. mxh .reason for this has been that the departure of Bender, ""'?. "VC&'jftns, of the Athletics, has overshadowed every other locnl deal, either pehdlng or Ttn.ii. .i, ..m n. tii rnnnta MnrW trill 1915 season Is a vastly different one from that which besaii Its championship cam paign In 1913. there Is not the marked difference between Mnck's rosier now and two years ago as there Is between those of the Thlllles which are separated by two sewons. Furthermore, the riddling of the Phillies' ranks has not yet been completed. Thus far no disposition has been made of ex-Manager Dooln. although ho has staien In no uncertain terms that he would not play with his former teammates under any consideration. Then the case of Hans Lobert Is still hanging fire. Kans has been engaging In serious flirtations with Federal I,eaguo magnates. That tho speedy third, baseman Is more than seriously thinking of lightly leaping from organised baseha I was shown by his recent trip to the West, when ho vlallcd "outlaw moguls In St. Louis and Chicago. ALEXANDER ONLY VETERAN PITCHER IN PHILADELPHIA drover Alexander Is tho only veteran pitcher who will be seen In a major league Uniform In Philadelphia next summer. The Athletics have not a single twlrlcr who can be called even a near-veternn. Tho Phillies arc no less Bhy on seasoned box material, with the lone oxcoptlon of their wonderful right bonder. The youngsters Upon -whom Manager Pat Moran will depend next season are Tlncup. Mayer, Marsha l, Bixey and Baumgartner. Connie Mack has now but rive men with whom ho would be willing to start a championship gnme In tho American League. They nro uusn, finawksr and Wyckoff. right Handera, and Brcssler and Pennock, left handers. ur these youngsters. Bob Bhawkey In tho oldest, 24. but ho has been In major league company only since the middle of tho season of 1913. Bush has had longer experi ence with the Athletics than any of his team-mates and ho has reached the voting age. It Is possible that the Phillies may get a pitcher from the Boston Braves when the Magee deal has been settled, but thoy will not get any member of the james-Tyler-Rudolph trio, which means that they will not get a high-grade performer. Connie Mack has his eye on a number of youngsters, but, an far as can be ascer tained, ho has not a veteran In prospect The only chance for the Athletics to get a man of experience for the box would be for Comlskey to open his heart and let Mack have one of his many excellent hurlcrs. That, however. Is unlikely, as tho Olfl Homan Is out to win a pennant, and In giving 150,000 for Eddie Collins he lias hown that he does not Intend to stop at the ordinary limits to reconstruct his team. MANY ARE GONE AND SOME ARE EVEN FORGOTTEN Taking the players who stood pre-eminent on the Phllly club of 1313 and those who will start South In less than two months, It Is ovldcnt that the overwhelming majority hare removed from the vicinity of Broad and Lehigh.

The leading players who will not be In Phllly of 1818 are Charley Tlooln. manager; KnaDo. .uooian, minor, oiageo, umimnn, .v.., Brennan. Beaton and Devore. Furthermore, Blnco all of these men were members of the Phllly organisation the club has changed owners. Billy Locke, the president In 1813, Is dead. W. F. Baker Is president and Pat Moran Is manager. The veterans who are still on the Phllly bread roll aro few. They are. at present. Klllefer, Luderus. Lobert. Paskert, Cravath and Alexander, but, nB already men tioned, the chancel are greater than over that Lobert will not bo here whon the season begins. Colonel Ituppert, the angler for the Yankees, says that he will have a winning dub If. he takes over the New Tork stock. He hasn't taken It over yet. and one of the reasons assigned Is that ho cannot get the privilege to sell his own beer at the Polo Grounds. If both'1 of these statements are true, the Colonel should remember that he probably wouldn't sell much of his brew, anyway. Tho reason why the business was so good last summer was because the play of the Yankees drove the trpecUtors to drink.

WOMEN TO SWIM IN OPEN MEET Women who aspire to open aquatic championships will have the opportunity of a, lifetime January 2 to 9 at Madison Square Garden, when, for the first time In the history of the sport, they will be permitted to compete against males. The events r to he regularly scheduled championship ones, and from present nccounts. there will be a good number of women entered. The New York Athletic Club will have ruBterluTmeSas Arthur McAleenan. Jr.. J. C. Wheatley and II. E Vollmer In the going, so that the fair swimmers will have some rather strenuous times making any sort of a how nff.tg convlctIon that for the present, at least, the mixed swimming contests are not going to be wonderful successes. It Is believed i that women now given the right to compete with men will be Interested for awhile, but later will not care to pit their strength against that of men. Some have said the fact that the Amateur Athletio Union recognized the women Indicates that tney oeueve tne uroo o i "5" """" ". ." -vantage in the athletic pastime against man. Suffice It to say we do not be lieve women should be permitted to compete at tho same set of games with the men and against men. In some Instances women become unusually proficient in the water, and likewise In many other branches of sport, but general Up-top development Is not the rule. Miss Annette Kellermann la a wonder tn the water, but she Is one of the exceptions. An a professional. r of course, she cannot compote In the A. A. U. events. To stimulate the members of her sex to greater endeavor, she has. however, offered a special silver loving cup to be awarded the successful woman swimmer at tho Madison Square Garden championships.

Kvery year, when the Ranking Com mittee of tho United States National Lawn Tennis Association announces its ranking list for tho season, n storm of protest is heard from tho sections of the country whose Individual stars havo not received recognition, and this year cer tainly was no exception. The tennis offi cials could learn something from the United States Golf Association by not naming the list. The Oolf Association has Just aa much right to submit a ranking list of golfers as the Tennis Association. Of course, seldom. If ever, will any one make the statement that there are golfers who are capable ot playing a better game than tho man who wins tho national amateur championship, but this Is Just as liable to happen oxactly as It has happened In the tennis world. Sober ro ilectlon of their plnylng ability must surely result In tho thought that today McLaughlin la a better tennis player than Williams, who, notwithstanding the fact that he Is the rational champion and had beaten McLaughlin In the challenge round -for-.the title, was ranked below the Calif ornlan.
