BELIEVE HE IS
JUST THE HAN
His Method of Handling the
Players Said to be What
Brooklyn Club Needs.
(By Damon Runjon in New York
Whether the bull whip is mightier
than the bull con in baseball is a
question that may be definitely settled
in Greater New York next season.
On the Island of Manhattan we
have with us that famous exponent
of the laeh, John J. McGraw. which
over in Brooklyn we will have Your
Uncle Wilbert Robinson, a saWe
spreader of some note.
The success attained by John J.
McGraw up to this time rather argues
in favor of the flail in running a bail
team, but your Uncle Wilbert has no1
yet had a chance to demonstrate me
«fficacy of soothing sounds on the
savage breasts of the Hrooklyn ball
Probably the closest friends in
haf"hnu and intimate associates for
yam, McGraw and Robinson are di
rectly opposite types. They use di
rectly opposite methods in going aft
er the same result—Retting work on*
of a ball player. McGraw is famed
a, driver, and no one will deny that
lie has had to do some driving to
make champion* of the Giants three
times hand running. Robbie Is the
eoaxer. He leads, rather than drives.
Bobbie tikes to study a man's tem
perament, and handle him according
ly/ Be has an amazing faculty for
making friends with the most cron
Crained youngster, and there is prob"
ably no man In baseball more gen
erally liked by the players than your
tTnde Wilbert. If all the Dodgers
are not shouting the praises of Rob
hie in two weeks after he takes them
in hand, then they are a hard bunch
MeGMwr Kewr Cajoles.
McGraw is also well liked by his
men, and will go as far for them as
any manager In the business, as he
has demonstrated time and again by
holding to players in the face of fierce
public crltclsm. His driving methods
are confined to the ball fl«M, and he
puts away His whip with his uni
form, bnt he rarely. If ever, tries to
cajole a man Into doing what he
wants him to do. He tells him, and
expects the man. to do It forthwith.
Tom Lynch, president of the Na
tional league, was discussing his urn
plrleal experiences with the Orioles in
the old days, not long ago, and some
one mentioned Robbie's name.
"He was a great salver," said
XynCh. smiling at the recollection.
"When the rest of the Orioles would
be raging about the field, Robbie
would aquat back of the bat and
anoint the lacerated feelings of the
umpire with kind words, but I never
saw him yet when he wasnt saying
one word for the umpire, and a cou
ple for himself.
Don't pay no attention to the
bom1 he'd say. they're a little wild
today—don't you think you missed
that one, Tom. It looked pretty good
to me.' He was a great fellow, Rob*
ble, and a grand ball player," con
cluded the boss of the old league.
It la the opinion of the fans both
in New Tork and Brooklyn that Eb
bets made a wise move in securing
Robbie. For a time some of the
friends of the Squire of Flatbush
thought he Intended making a man
ager of Jake Daubert, which would
have been a mistake. Daubert is at
the very height of hie wonderful ca
reer as a ball player, and there is no
use Jeopardising his success in that
respect by giving him the oares of a
BobMe W1U Hake Goon.
It let alone, Robbie will make a
good showing with the Dodgers next
season. Dahlen has left him the
makings of a splendid team, and all
around the National league last sea
son the critics were expressing their
wonder that the Dodgers were doing
no better. They have an infield ana
oatfield that outclass several teams
that finished well above the Brook-:
lynitas, and they have good battery!
material, but throughout the season
of 1919 the Dodgers lacked that in
definable something that marks the
dividing line between a first division
contender and a ruck runner.
Robbie has announced that he will
send Rucker, Ragon and Ruelbach to
Hot Springs early tn February, while
the rest of his pitching staff will jour'
ney to the training camp at Augusta
abont February 20. The balance of
the club will report about March 1.
The new Dodger leader says there is
little prospect of him securing Charley
Herzog from the Giants, as Shafer is
always such a, doubtful quantity when
it comes to the trifling matter of
showing up that McGraw will un
doubtedly want to hold on to the
Marylander as a safety measure.

BRICKIvKY FOB CAPTAIN.
Cambridge. Mass.. Xov. 25.—
Dope on the Harvard football
situation today was generally to
the effect that Charles Brickley,
whose nvc goals from Held last
Saturday gave his team victory
over Yale, would be chosen cap
tain of the 1914 eleven.
Cambridge, Mass.. Xov. 26.—
Charles E. Brickley, the Harvard full
back, who kicked every one of the
fifteen points which defeated Tate
here Saturday, is as his mother calls
him. '"a wonderful boy." Brlckleys
loyalty to his university's athletics
and his devotion to his mother have
been known to his mates since he eh*
tered Harvard three years ago. That
the big fullback sought inspiration for
his victories within his church be
came known by accident.
Less than an hour after Brickley of
the deft toe had turned back the in
vading Yale team, a friend met the
great Crimson kicker and fullback on
his knees in St. Paul's Catholic
church, his head bent in prayer. Liat
er it wa6 learned he had visited the
church before the game.
Mrs. William J. Brickley. mother
of the great kicker, one of those old
fashioned mothers, whose life iff
wrapped up In her children, hates to
see her son play football. When told
his feats in the Yale-Harvard game
the mother smiled and said:
"Yes, Charley is a wonderful boy.
I gave him a football on his ninth
birthday and he has played the game
ever since. I could not stand It to see
Charley being tossed about and sat
on by other players, if I were In the
Stadium and he were hurt for an in"
stant, I would have to climb down
on the playing field and go to him.

"No other son of mine will ever
play football," Bhe concluded, and the
mother's word is law in the Everett
There are two things the Harvard
player always does following a game.
He first rushes to a telephone, calls
his mother and assures her that he
never felt better in his life and tells
her the score. Xext he visits a church
and on bended knee spends a few
minutes in silent prayer. Surrounded
by members of his family and a few
friends, Brickley last night celebrat
ed his twenty-second birthday anni
versary in his home In Everett. He
is a South Boston boy by birth.
