CONNIE MACK DENIES ATHLETICS ARE POORLY PAID-REAL PITCHING ALL CLUB NEEDjf
ARE ATHLETICS POORLY PAID?
CONNIE MACK MAKES ANSWER
PLAYERS IN STENTON-ARONIMINK MATCH
Federal Overtures to His Players and Their Refusal to Junip Cited
As Real Test manager Asks Public to Keep in Mind
the Ball Teams He Has Constructed.
Are the Athletics an Underpaid lenm of hull tlayors7
, For several years this nsseHlon hns been mailo by ball players and out
dNlown scribes. They nrsue that since the organization of the wonderful
Matik machine back In 1910, the players have been slgnltiK for smaller salaries
than those paid elsewhere because they were flfrurlnir on the world's series.
One writer contends that the departure of Collins, llendcr and I'lanU caused
Frank jJakcr to rcftiao to report because he signed for $1500, believing that
be had about $3000 world's scries money coming to him each fall with the
wonderful machine Intact. When linker realized that the team could not win
the pennant hands down, he balked on living up to bis contract.
It Is only fair to the Athletics to say that these guesses aro guesses only.
Perhaps there was a time when the Athletics got their players cheap. Is that
to their discredit, If they can turn out championship teams with less money
Federal Overtures Test for Athletics
This Idea about the small salaries of the Athletics might still be strongly
supported bad It not been for the advent of the Federal League Into the Held.
Manager Mack and the players have never paid any attention to these knocks,
of whlph they are frequently reminded on the Held by Washington, Uoslou and
Detroit players, but they kept right on their merry way getting the money.
When the KcUs started, the Mackmen were considered the acme of
perfection so far us ball plnylug was concerned. It was a team of stars
Vhlch did not show ihclr Individualism, and the first thing the Federal League
trjed to lo was to make a wreck of the Athletics, as they were also laboring
under the delusion that It was a poorly paid aggregation of ball players.
Fedcrnl League agents were authorized to offer tho Athletics handsome
salaries, with a bonus to cover tho world's series purse, which was apparently
theirs for some years to come. Tom Fleming, one of these agents, told tho
Evening LEWiKlt representative that he met with the surprlic of his life when
trying to do business with the Athletics.
A Rent of Outlaws Had Eyes Opened
Six of the Athletics were offered contracts, which they carried around In
their pockets for a long time, much to the displeasure of Malinger Mack, but
they were carried more for show than for any desire to sign. Fleming said
that he had offered several of the players contracts which ho believed they
would sign, but was dumfounded when the players showed them contracts
with the Athletics calling for Just as much or more.
Fleming, after soverlng connection with the Federal League, wrote to
Manager Mack for a position art scout, and also told the Athletics' leader of
hla unsuccessful efforts to sign Athletics' players. The Evunino Leuoi:i repre
sentative was In tho ofllcc at Shlbe Park with Manager Mack at tho time and
read the letter.
Mack Argues ns to Value of Players
Manager Mack does not like to talk of the subject at nil, hut he does
become very much excited when ho gets tinder way. lie says: "All that
kind of stuff Is sent out by the enemies of tho Athletics' club. Our players
tre paid every cent they are worth, and I am positive that our salary list
Is as large, If not larger, than that of any club In the entire country. In
the flrst place, It Is none of tho other fellow's business what I am paying my
players. If the players want to tell the public, let them: but I won't.
"So fur as not paying them what they are worth, that Is a Joke. Do you
suppose for one minute that a player Is going to sign with mo for less money
than he could get elsewhere? It was all right to pull that before the Federal
League came Into tho field, because the knockers always had the alibi 'that
the players could not get away; but what about now?
"One thing I have never found ball players modest about Is their value
to a ball club. They always have a pretty good Idea of what they are worth,
generally a much better Idea than tho manager. I know there are many flno
examples of fair and square fellows In baseball, but my players would have
been only human to have Jumped to the Federal League if they wero not
being- mighty well paid by me.
Cites Record of Teams He Has Ouilt
"You might recall the letter I showed you last winter from Tom Fleming.
Well, that does not look very much as though the men were underpaid. Maybe
my players have counted on world's series money, but that did not prevent
them from getting all that was coming to them beforo they signed. All players
think that the world's series Is their natural reward for being champions, and
I think so, too. If any of my players ever signed for less money than ho
thought ho was worth, I never knew of It. Most of my players In the last
three or four years have signed at their own figures.
"I allowed Collins to go to Chicago because ho wanted more money than
any player Is worth and more than I was willing to pay. I have built up
more than one club and I will do It again. I think tho public owes mo this
chance. I have always made good for them and will do so again. As for
Baker, he signed at his own figure and that lets him out, but I will say that
It was far considerably more than any one has yet stated."
Connie Mack Talks of Baseball Peace
In talking over the prospects of baseball peace. Manager Mack, of the Ath
letics, said yesterday: "I don't know anything about It. I am willing to go
long, just as 1 have in the past. I don't seek trouble. But what Is to become
of' the Feds If they are taken In? What are we going to do with them?"
That Is one question which has caused much speculation among baseball
fans throughout the country, but ono that should not trouble the National
Commission or magnates of organized baseball. It has been the policy of or
ganized baseball In the past to protect the Interests of Its various leagues, but
those leagues must shift for themselves to a large extent. If they cannot keep
their heads above water, they must sink, as have many minor leagues within
the last two years.
Disposal of St, Louis Club Chief Task
From a distance It would seem the only thing of Interest to organized
baseball Is to get rid of ono of the clubs In St. Louis. If organized ball can
do that, then It Is fully protected. Chicago can stand three clubs because the
South Bid or White Sox fans rately attend games at the National or Federal
League parks In the northwest section of the city.
So long as there are no conflicting dates on tho West Side, Chicago will
prosper with threo teams. It seems that the removal of tho Feds from Chicago
will be the greatest obstacle In tho way of peace plans. The Feds will never
sjlvp up Chicago. That much Is certain, but It does not appear to be a large
enough obstacle to prevent the three leagues finally getting together.
Continuance of War Seems Foolish
When one reasons It out It appears most foolish to continue the battle If
the Feds are willing to give up St. Louis, and the owners of that club have
admitted that they are willing to do this. If they can buy Into one of the other
chiba In St, Louis, Why should the magnates "cut throats" with disaster marine
all parties In the face, when the Feds have proved that they cunnot be starved
Principle and dignity are great things In their places, but they are over
worked at times. The baseball war will end with the same disaster for all
concerned If It Is allowed to continue. If the Federals are going to blow up,
Organized Ball also will blow up.
T Aiht.tlra I.nnk C.rmt Tlehinrl Real I'ltchintr
Bob Shawkey pitched a great game of ball yesterday against the Sen
ators, and Grimth's men never really had a chance for victory, Shawkey
was etven a, three-run lead and had no trouble holding It. Bentley, Grif
fith's young spuUPawi "wno blanked the Athletics with one scratch hit a
tew; days before the' close of last season, was rudely treated In the one
and one. third Innings he pitched, and yet the youngster seemed to have
everything o, pitcher needed. Bentley's greatest fault was In wasting his
fine curve ball continually and in grooving the fast one. Had he reversed
' mVtars a. different story might have been told.
-. As had been the case every time a good pitcher was on the mound,
the Athletics looked like the champions of old. It only strengthens the
ttellet that good pitching w(U make the Athletics a by far more serious
pennant contender than some are willing to believe. The best club In the
world will look bad with poor and unintelligent pitching, such as Mack
has bad to date,
Work of Lajole a Notable Sign
Lajole looked better yesterday than he has so far this season. He has
bid better days with the bat and accepted more chances In the field on sev
eral occasions, but It was the manner in which Lajole performed his work
-yesterday that made It Bland out. One play In particular was pleasing.
T It was when Shawkey took a nasty bounder and tossed It to Larry,
forcing a runner at second. There did not seem to be a chance for a double
ygy with a fast man like Shanks going to first, but Lajole whipped the
ball to Mclnnls In time to complete the play. It was a simple double play,
imt it waa a faster one than Larry has made In a long time. It presages
luster things for the future.
Mclnnls made several brilliant plays. His catch of a fly ball In right
-waa a masterpiece. It was on a ball that he took straight over his shoulder
-fur out In right and one of the hardest kind of hits to Judge and handle.
A. fine stop on a drive by Henry, which held the hit to a single, and
spheral oixt-Man49A cefctitts of-badly thrown balls Into the manor were.

While Northeast High School nnd West
Philadelphia High School ngaln are shar
ing tho top berth In tho Interscholaatic
League race. Frlpnds' Central virtually
clinched the championship of the Inter
academic League. Northeast defeated
Central High, 10-7. whllo Friends' Central
won from Germnntown Aenttomy, 7-4, In
games played yel onlay afternoon.
Although Northeast was runner-up in
tho scholastic campaign, with the crim
son and gold on their heels, the reultof
the contest was somewhat of a surprise.
Central wan playing In fine form, while
it scorned as If the red and black boys
were slipping. However. Keller was In
corking condition and held the Ilrond and
Green streeters to nine hits
Carria, Friends' Central's crack curver,
was In splendid Hhnpe yesterday after
noon, and although he allowed eight safe
blows to the Oermantown batters, he
fanned 13 of tho opposition. Ilace, Ger
mantown's center-fielder, was credited
with half of tho hits, but ho was left on
the bases each time.
Perm Charter won the other Inter
academlo League match by romping oft
with a 9-2 victory over the Episcopal nine.
The Llttlo Quakem" victory places them
In second place.
Southern High School, as usual, was
the recipient of a bad trimming, this
time Cathollo High School turning the
trick by a 14-1 score, areer twirled a
corking contest for the Purple and Gold,
holding the lowly Southwnrk nlno to
but four hits.
Penn Charter's tennis team added an
other victory to Its long string by taking
tho Lower Merlon High School rue
queters into camp by 3 matches to 2.
The little Quakers won all of the singles.
In the Wake of J. Coffey's Latest
Hail to the shamrock from hillside to
Lowland to upland and valley to crag;
Hall, sons of Erin, who gather together
Under the old of the emerald flay;
Long have we waited the old laurel flying
Over a bloke who was there with the
"Erin go bragh !" is the rcho replying
To fato at its worst from the clan of
So here's to the little green isle, me boys,
And here's to the Blarney Stone;
It's up wtth the cup In a smile, me boys,
Wherever the shamrook's flown;
Oh, tho Lakes of Killarney are far, me
But never a sea can sever;
.Where Jeems has the prod, here's "the
clan of the sod"
And tho little green isle forever.
If Jim Coffey continues his Improve
ment and maintains tho uplift he has es
tablished It la no part of any cinch that
Jess Wlllard can maul his dome oft In
Bhort order, as a number figure the case
Wlllard would enter the ring with tho
edge his way, but not with any edge as
thick as tho dlstanco between two
Siberian outposts. Coffey has not only
Improved some S7 per cent., but he has
the courage and the stamina to take his
share of punishment. If the Dublin
Giant rakes In a bit more experience
while Wlllard dallies with a Wild West
show, Ireland hns the chance of her life
time to put another heavyweight back at
the top of the fistic hill.
The Next Fight
Wlllard Is duo a good, healthy vacation
before he la forced to start active train
ing again. Hut when ho Is due to don
the harness the big Irishman Is the man
ho will have to meet and beat.
Wlllard will hnvo the advantage of hav
ing old J. H. Championship sitting In his
corner when the fur begins to fly, but
he will have no part of a boob to beat.
In a year from now tho gentleman from
Ireland and the Motorman's League will
bo a worthy opponent for any champion
to meet In mortal combat.
Wlllard carries the margin In weight
and power, but Coffey Is above 6 feet
and mora thnn 00 poundF, and this, it
the rest Is there. Is enough to go the dis
tance We confess to no yearning to bet
against Wlllard for some time to coino.
But the Georgia Cakewalk that he seemed
to havo back In April Is no longer ex
tant. The Red Sox Outlook
Last winter nt one time, via tho dope.
It looked as If Bill Carrlgan had the
American League flag already nailed to
tho main pole.
This part of the dopo Is no longer an
buoyantly Uostonrse as It used to be.
Carrlgan has a first-class club, but with
the llso of tho Yanks from bondago unto
freedom, the power shown by tho Tigers
and tho dash now on display by tho
White Sox, no one club can show any ex
tended advantage beyond tho rest of the
Unless Wood and Gregg return to top
form, which they hnrdly will, Carrigan
has a tough Job to finish first. He still
hns plenU of good pitching loft, a fitst
class outfield and a good Infield. But so
far Trls Sneaker hasn't started to hit,
and tho batting power of the Texan Is
tho leading feature of tho lied Sox at
tack. The Bed Sox look far beyond tho Mack
men nnd stronger than the Nationals. But
so far no club in routo around tho cir
cuit In either league has looked any bet
ter than the Yank?, who havo been play
ing baseball bereft or any fluke, but with
a dash and smash and sureness that onlv
brilliancy can beat.
The Big Four
Sir: Some days ago you desired to
know who in America had a chance
against Vardon, Bay, Taylor and Dun
can at Kngland'fl coming golf Invasion.
1 think I can name at least four with a
chance Macdonald Smith, Walter Hagen,
Chick Evans nnd Francis Oulmet espe
cially the two former, who, I happen to
know, aro pointing their play to tho day
of the American Open. They may not
win, but they won't be far away.
It may be that, according to the old
saying, "Only the Braves deserve the
"flag," but this will be of no material
assistance If some ono else grabs it.
There are occasions in every game when
It Is Just as well to sidestep a trimming
nnd get ready for another start.

Johnny Maloney, of the St. Itlta's Oath

115-pound amateur boxing champion of
the United States. He won the right to

President Pawling some time ago be
came Interested In the clever little
nghter, and upon his fine showlne In
Boston decided to send the local lad
