WISE IS THE
Ambulance Team Would
Meet Hilltop Eleven

By LOUIS A. DOUGHER.
Georgetown University has re
ceived a challenge from the Allen
town ambulance unit's crack foot
ball eleven. The ambulance boys,
with many stars of 1916 college
elevens in their line-up, are busily
arranging a schedule with some of
the representative teams of the East.
It is not likely that the Blue and
Gray will be able to play the ambu
lance team. The only open dates are
next Saturday and Thanksgiving
Day. Davidson canceled its contest
scheduled for the Hilltop this week
and the passing of George Washing
ton left turkey day open. The Hill
toppers may close their season the
week before Thanksgiving.

FULLERTON PUTS COLLINS FAR AHEAD
OF HEKZOG WHEN SECOND IS STUDIED
By HUGH S. FULLERTON.
Chicago gains a large lead over the
New York Giants In Ihe comparative
dope on the second basemen for the
comlnsr World's Series.
The comparison of these two men Is
one of the most Interesting I ever have
made, for the reason that they repre
sent as totally different types of ball
players as we can find. Were it not
for the fact that Herzos's physical con
dition at present detracts from his fig
ure values, we would find a player who
Is batting only about .225. ranking close
to, and perhaps above, Eddie Collins,
who has been hailed by many as the
greatest of second basemen.
It is unfortunate that we are com
pelled to deduct -from Herzog's value be
cause of his Injured back and his recent
collapse on the ball field, else we would
have a straight issue as to whether the
nervy- brainy, aggressle daredevil type
of phoer, who is all nerve and courage.
Uy better for purposes of a World's
Series than one of the greatest fielding,
batting and base-running machines the
game ever has known.
You may put It down In the black
book that Eddie Collins Is not as great
a player today, in the minds either of
players or of the experts, s he was
rated when he was with Hacks cham
pionship teams. He has played sloppy,
careless,, and, at times, seemingly In
different baseball all season until the
last month when he suddenly got Into
action and has been going at his top
speed In almost every department. With
his return to form, the White Sox final
winning streak started.
Herzog. on the other hand, has been
playing wonderful ball, aggressive, fight
ing, hustling and winning baseball all
season until he kicked at a piece of
chewing gum, slipped and injured his
back. It may be that the World's Series
will be decided by that xlip. it Is a
cinch Herzog will not be at 1ils best In
this series, and that McGraw may be
compelled to use his undertsudy In part
of the gamed. He will not, if Herzog is
able to crawl out of bed, for he uould
play on crutches to help his team.
Collins can outhlt, outrun, outfield
and outthrow his Giant rival. He has
more speed, lie possesses everything
In a physical sense that Is needed, yet
in such a series as this the player of
the Herzog type Is liable to be more
valuable. Collins almost certainly
will outhit him.
Not Up To Old Stnndard.
Herzog is not hitting een as well
as he usually does. He is down in
tire -0 class now, while Collins, al
though he has ceased to be a .COO hit
ter since he joined the White Sox.
still Is much better, and is a I way m
around .-Ml, which, considering the
White Sox, Is remarkable. During
the belated White Sox rush to safely,
he Improved Immensely In batting, as,
well as in the other departments of
Collins has (as ue in Chicago have
discovered) tw.o grav faults, faults
that do not belong on a world'.
championship team. He has played
safety first baseball dating the great
er part of the year, and has protect
d hlmelf at the expense of several
victories. He does not take the
chances when thoe chances Involve
possible injury of himself He evi
dently realizes tli value of such
high class live slock.
While this may be commendable
from the standpoint of the placer, it
hardly is approved by lovers of the
game, and perhaps no man in base
ball comes neater t-eing the antithesis
of the safety first player than Col
lins rival In the series.
If there Is an opportunity to break
his neck and win a ball game. Her
zog will take that chance. He will
risk "every bone in his body to win.

greater lie becomes as a ball player.
During the last Quarter of a cen
tury. 'T have seen many ball players
who rose, with gritted teeth and
fought for game with all their nerve
and courage, but 1 never have seen
an exhibition such as Ilerxog gave In
the series between the Giants anil
Boston Red Sox. In that xeries. he,
by his desperate efforts, came near
turning the dope upside down. It
was aheer nerve, courage and deter
mination and, wMlc his back may be
weak and his condition not the best,
his nerve still is unimpaired.
It will be Interesting to watch the
men during the coming series and
contrast their methods. Conceding
Collins every advantage from a me
chanical standpoint. It need not sur-
1 prise anyone if Herzog Is a greater
hero when It Is over.
Another Collins Fault.
Collins has one more bad trick, and
one which affects his team greatly be
cause it most frequently affects the
weakest spot on the White Sox, which
Is right field. With all his experience,
Collins still has a habit of claiming
fly Calls hit to right field and falling
between his position and the right
fielder's. Time and again this season
he has claimed such balls, and then',
after stopping the right fielder, he
has quit on the ball hlmseir and al
lowed it to fall safe. An Inspection
of my records this season shows six
.uch instances. If such a-thing should
happen dining the coming series, the
ofr.tt mlfrht hp disastrous.
Iloth these men arc world's series'
veterans. Collins has played In all
the Athletic series, and he has shown
the same kind of ball in the big affair
that he does during the regular sea
son. With his brilliant execution and
perfect form, he can be relied upon as
a steady and reliable defensive player.
His hitting ought not to be great in
It is n cinch that Mcflraw will aim
his pilrlirr-i to stop Collins and Jack
son more than any of the others of
the White Sox. and I believe .hat
both Schupp and Sallee will turn this
trick to a large extent. Collins hits
the southpaws fairly well, better by
far than most left-handed batters do,
but. In a world's series, with the de
tails carefully worked out In advance,
with fach pitcher instructed and
coached to the limit as to etry man,
the best natural batters are under a
As we thall see later. It is a hard
Job for any manager to figure a
pitcher to atop all the White Sox.
This team has both a right and left
handed bunch, and the pitcher who
stops one wrecking crew must face

Study for a time the records of Her
zog this season. He Is far below Col
lins in number of hits and In percent
age. Yet, playing In many fewer
-games and hitting far below him,
stealing fewer bases and seemingly
mechanically Inferior In attack, Her
zog ha scored almost as many runs
as has the Chicago star. He Is one of
, the best run-getters In the business.
and. once on nrst. lie is resourceful,
clever, and he gefc around some way.
I have been compelled to discount
Herzog's value largely on the reports
of his condition. It Is being an
nounced that he Is "all right," but the
reports Indicate that he Is not com
pletely recovered from his col'apse,
and that his injured' back Is still giv
kig htm trouble. He has been given
opportunity to rest It and get It into
shape, and It Is to be hoped that he
will be right when he goes to second
For another thing, Herzog Is not
naturally a second baseman. He has
acquired a certain knack and pro
ficiency in playing on that side of
the diamond, but his natural place is
on the other half, where he handles
balls faster and gets them away
quicker. However, his playing at sec
ond this season has been satisfactory.
It seems to be a case of the impas
sive, Connie Mack style of ball play
er, performing his work without emo
tion and with the preclsenessof a
machine, pitted against a fiery, fight
ing, nervy fellow of less mechanical
ability. -It Is going to be Interesting
to see which carries off the honors.
Tomorrow we will tackle the short
stops. I have Just completed the fig
ures on these, and they are somewhat
of a surprise. They surprised me,
when I added up. How about you,

Business sustains a heavy loss In
the absence of Buck Wise and Ralph
