President Thomas of the Cubs de
parted our midst on a mysterious
mission last night It is mysterious
because the Cub executive did not
tell in detail where he would be every
minute of the next few days. It is
now in order to begin wondering how
many stars will be added to the Cub
roster in the next few days.
Nothing will happen, however. It
is too early for the teams to begin
swapping among themselves, and it
is only in this direction that there is
any hope for the Cubs to strengthen
several positions.
Indicating he has little hopes of
peace, Manager Tinker of the Whales
will leave for Shreveport next week
to arrange for the 1916 training trip
of the North Siders.
The man who became the hero of
the 1915 world series was the man
who was picked, before the series
started, to be replaced by a substi
tute. Duffy Lewis, Boston outfielder,
seemed to have lost his punch entire
ly in the games of the late season.
k In the crucial series between the Red
Sox and the Tigers to decide the pen
nant. Duffy lacked 'pep" and was
popping up in pinches. There was
talk that when the big series came
Duffy would be sent to the bench and
his place taken by Olaf Henriksen,
utility man.
But Bill Carrigan, Sox manager,
knew Lewis better than any one else.
He knew that the way to make Duffy
play was to make him think he was
a great ballplayer. He knew Duffy
was the sort who needed to be coaxed

ment Duffy would be the same gooJl
ballplayer he had formerly been.
' From the moment the series start
ed Lewis looked like a million dollars.
In the first game he got two hits off
Alexander and drove in the only run
the Sox scored. In the second game
he got one hit off Mayer.
In the third game Lewis stood out
like a house afire. He got three hits
off Alexander and won the ball game
with a timely single in the ninth in
ning. He won the fourth game with
a two-sacker in the sixth. In the
fifth, with Gainer on first and the
score 4 to 2 in favor of the Phils, -Duffy
poled a homer into the bleachers.
In addition to clubbing the ball like
a fiend, Lewis was a whale in the out
field, going back and coming in -and
robbing Cravath and other Phils of
hits that under ordinary conditions
would have been good for extra bases.
Lewis, the man picked as an un
certainty, a "weak sister," got eight
hits In 18 times at bat for .444 and
batted the Sox to victory.
