RIJNY NNAESUTHE
Believes Brooklyn Club Will Trim Car
rigan's Red Sox in the Com
ing Classic.
my DAMON RUNYON.
New York, Oct. 5.-We cannot desert
the old rubber plant.
Brooklyn, forever!
It your uncle Wilbert Robinson's noble
flatbush fusileers fail to wallop the Bos
ton Red sox in the impending world
series. the present speaker is going to
be vastly astonished, not to say humill
ated, and chagrined.
We expect the Dodgers to win by that
main strength and awkwardness which
carried them tigrough to a flag In the
National League race.
The Brooklyn Dodgers are a good deal
transtubeine district, Mr. Al McCoy. the
like another very notable product of the
middle-weight champion of the world.
They are often a most distressing spec
tacle in their battles, but who knocks
em out?
They meet handsomer, and cleverer, and
morA graceful opponents, and everybody
prepares to weep over their sad finish. but
at the close of the contest these Al
McCoy- of baseball are still in there,
uprleht and whanging away.
Folks say they are joke champions;
that thev do not constitute the best club
In the National League. Folks say the
same thing, in a general way, about Al
McCoy. None the less Al McCoy Is the
middle-weight title bearer. and he won
the title by a knock-out. None the less.
the Dodgers are the champions of their
class. and they gathered their victory by
slapping all their opponents unconscious.
As the Monday afternoon, In Brooklyn.
with the championship at stake, the
Dodgers stepped out and licked the most
sensational baseball club of all time, in
eluding a lad who was then being called
the greatest left-hander in America.
They beat the New York Giants, fresh
from their run of twenty-six consecutive
lictories-or stale from it, as you please
-and they heat Frdinand Schupp. with
Fix straight wins behind him. and one of
the greatest cueve balls that ever left the
paw of a side wheeler.
The Dodgers just naturally had to win.
and they won. Throw out the succeeding
;;ame if you wish. but don't overlook that
opener. That was a test. True, Schupp
gave them only a brace of hits, and they
won on errors-hut they won.
All along the line they won when they
had to win.
A singular outfit. often playjng half
esd-and-half-alive baseball, always
giving the impression that it was fearful
of losing rather than carrying the spirit
o! ontderce that is characteristic of
chamnionship clubs-but always winning.
Lacking in what baseball people all
aRgressivences. but carrying a danger
o.s. knock-out punch that came crashing
out at the most unexpected moments, the
lodgers plodded stolidly along to a
-hanionship while everybody was saying
that they woildr't do: that they had no
lees or baseball courage.
We have some shivers of trepidation
w ;en we think of those two ball murder
*rs. Har. y Hooper and Duffy Lewis, of
the Sox outtield section. but the Brooklyn
- i.h also has its pill pounders.
A -o it has the crafty old Jack Coombs,
and the not-so-crafty Rube Marquard to
oppose Ruth. Shore, Leonard and the
other star hurlers of the Carrigan corps.
Marquard holis two world series decisions
over a more powerful Red Sox club than
the one the Dodgers face Saturday, and
the memory is bound to hearten the
wry-necked Reuben.
As a whole, the Red Sox pitching staff
may be better than Your Uncle Wilbert's
band of moundamen; individually there
is not a lot to choose. The Red Sox has
the best outfield-as a whole-but no in
dividual outfielder as good as Zack
Wheat.
The infields are about a stand-off. If
Jack Barry plays second for the Red Sox,
that may give them the individual star
of the irner works, but Robinson has
Jake Daubert. one of the great first base
ii"n of his time.
WHITE FIRES LEWIS

In short. White fired the man who had

five years.
"Nate's a had manager, not only for

DODGRS TO LAMD
Brooklyn, . Y.. Oct. L-Wilbert
Robinson har realized one of his
ambitions In leading the Robins to
victory. He hopes to crown his
victory in the National Lague by
whipping thRetd Box, and Is con
fident of It, Robbip said
yesterday:
"We are going out to win, and I
think we can do It. Our team has
played good ball all season, and 'we
held the lead almost all the way
through, except for a day or two
here and there. We measure up to
the Red Sox, and with our team
playing its best ball right now
there is no reason why it can't
win. We'll show the fans some
real playing. Marquard, Coombs,
Cheney, Pfeffer and Smith will
show them some pitching, and we
are not worrying."
9EORGETOWN WILL BE
READY FOR MIDDIES
Shake-up in Hilitoppers' Line Greatly
Encourages Coaches-Will
Stop Navy.
Georgetown will be ready for Navy.
That the Hilltoppers will prove worthy
>pponents for the Midshipmen goes with
:ut saying, but many of its followers dur
ing the past few days were given the
mpression that the forwards of the Blue a
and Gray were weaklings and that the -
last Navy backs would cut this line to
pieces.
The safest bet is to awat the result,
but from an opinion of an old-timer who
witnessed the Hilltoppers at work yes
terday on the varsity field, Navy or any
>ther eleven on the Georgetown ached
ule will be compelled to put "al they
lot on the ball" to penetrate the defense
shown by these first-string players in
the scrimmage drill held yesterday.
Although the showing of the George
town forwards made against the
daryland State College eleven on
Wednesday, In a practice drill, was
nything but impressive to the followers
tnd coaches, this one day's performance t
resterday has reversed the appearance I
)f things. c
The hardest scrimmage ever witnessed '
)n the Hilltop field was held yesterday I
Lnd with two shake-ups made In thisJ
'eretofore weak line, the Blue and Gray c
:an now present a stonewall forward. r
For two hours Coach Albert Exendine a
cept these Hilltop warriors plugging at rI
>ne another until he had corrected all
:he faults that were shown on Wednes- I
lay, and when the squad finished off Its 2
work - shortly before sundown, "Exie" e
teemed satisfied that Navy would have v
:o hustle all the way to land the ver- g
lict. 0
The Hilltoppers are prepared to halt b
FRoberts. the star half hack of the Mid
lies, while Jackie Maloney and Gliroy
will test their toes against Perry, Navy's t
tensational kicker. Nothing but a light 0
lignal drill will be held today. Tomor
ow morning the Hilltop squad, forty- h
Ive strong, will board the 9 o'clock train 1
or the little Maryland town. The stu
lent body will leave on the 12 o'clocklb

WISLAUREL STAKE!
Tommy McTaggart Puts Powers' Geld
ing Fist Across in the High
weight Handicap.
Laurel, Md., Oct. .-With an impost of
140 pounds, Top o' the morning, cleverly
ridden by Tommy McTaggart, was an!
easy winner of the feature number, the
fourth race, a high-weight handicap at
six furlongs at the Laurel course today.
Top o' the Morning outran his field
from the start, and shook off The
Masquerader at the furlong pole, and
had plenty of speed left to stall off
Wiseman's rush. That Top o' the Morn
Ing is a high-class handicap horse, there
can be no doubt. His performance today
was a creditable one, and it will take 1
a sprinter of considerabie class to beat
the Powers gelding in the future.
Tommy McTaggart gave an exhibition
of his old-time skill in the pigskin, and
it seems a pity that such a clever rider
should be kept out of the saddle, owing
to his increasing weight. Tommy has a
shade on al the boys when it comes
down to riding, And his masterful pilot
ing of ToO o' the Morning shows that
he is still a master of the game. The
winner covered the six furlongs in 1:12
2-5, or within two seconds of the track
record, held by James Butler's Pebbles.
who negotiated the six furlongs in 1:12,
flat in 1915.
Reprobate was the winner of the open
ing number on the program, easily de
feating Ponce de Leon and Scylla- The
winner drew away into a long lead and
was only galloping at the end, while
Ponce de Leon and Scylla were driving
to save the place.
Racebrook annexed the lumping race
by a scant margin from %fareh Court
and Promoter. The winner outgamed
March Court right at the end. The
balance of the field were strung out.
That Racebrook has come back to be,
a real good jumper was demonstrated in
his race today.
James Butler. the New York million
aire, won two races, the first with Bally,
at a nice price, and the second with
Gnat. The former took the measure of
a good field, defeating Straight Forward.
who was looked upon as the best bet of
the day, while Ticket was third, and
lastly "Wizard" Bedwell's Manokin.
Gnat was an easy winner of the fifth
race, when he forced the pace for the
entire journey and was only galloping at
the end.
Richard Carman. the Washington and
New York horseman, annexed the sixth
race by a head with his Hastings filly,
Queen of Paradise, who lasted long
enough to win from Buzz Around, the
favorite. Robinson. the Canadian "Whirl
wind." who rode Buzz Around. took his'
mount wide at the first turn, thereby los
ing several lengths and dropped out of
it for the first sixteenth.
Imil Hers kept up his daily winning
streak when his Peep o' Day gelding beat
Soldier by a neck in the last number
on the card. Nigil was third The lat
ter was a forward contender all the way,
And will prohably win before this'neeting
is over.
