Not a Happy-Go-Lucky, Rollicking Irishman, Says
Idah McGlone Gibson, Who Went Right Up and
Talked to Him; But a Serious, Aldermanic Person
Who Is Getting Gray.
NEW YORK, Oct. 8. —I am here to state that baseball Is on
the l«vet and it was "Muggsy" McGraw who unconsciously gave me
a splendid Illustration of this fact.
McGraw is surrounded by more "buffers" to keep the public
from him than Maude Adams, who ia never Interviewed, and that s
ngJohn" e M. Ward, who used to be captain of the New York club,
but who is now a lawyer and devotee of golf, promised to Introduce
me to McGraw and we went to the Polo grounds.
It was after the game that I Raw the Giants 1 manager, well
rroomed well dressed, well mannered. I Imagine that most peo
ple who only see him uniform think John McGraw Is a happy-faced
Irishman who smiles in the characteristic Celtic manner. This 1b

I think the shrewd manager of the Giants is hedging a little
in his own mind, for when I asked him if he thought he was going
to win the world's series, he said:

Tacoma boys can't get over
that defeat by Aberdeen Saturday.
Haider especially when there
really wasn't any reason for it.
That flukes played an import

was indicated by the number of
scores they piled up through acci
dental plays.
The season has brought out two
members of the Blue and Gold
team as first-class timber. Walt
Espeland surprised bis friends at
the Aberdeen game by his dashing
game at half.
As much can be said of Niok

to Tacoma—all at the Aberdeen
Rushmer will soon be able to
play again and the fans will be
glad to see him for he has the
fighting spirit which was so sadly
lacking Saturday. It will be hard
to place him though, for ESspeland
played his position in great style.
"Dub" Coblentz played well as
usual, but his kicking was very
lm accurate.

Olympia High school Saturday.
Everybody is glad to see the local
college making good this year.

"It will be a good lesson," says Coach Perkins, in referring to
the unnecessary beating Taconia High took from the Aberdeen
team Saturday, ";ind the boys will probably play football from
now on. They should have beaten that Aberdeen bunch 30 to 0.
There was no reason why we should have been beaten and maybe
the follows will learn that they have to do a little training now.
Horejs was disappointing. He seemed to stop when he was called
upon to hit The line. Espeland played a good game at half. He is
the best dodging halfback we have. I think he Is as good and
maybe better than Rushmer.
"I think Rushmer and the oth
er fellows with bad ankles will be
able to play by Saturday. Crane's
Is the worst, but Deegan will be
in lietter shape next week and
Rraell played a good ena in the
Aberdeen game. The team will
foe worked hard this week. I will
have them scrimmage a thing they
they did not do last week, because
of the number of bad ankles. It
seems better to work what'g left
of them in scrimmage than to go
easy on them."
(This is the fourth of the Times
stories intended to instruct the
boys of Tacoma in the fundamen
tals of football. The stories are
written by a member of the Times
staff who has had a great deal of
experience as coach of youthful
football teams. —Editor.)
There Is a great deal to "han
dling the ball." Flayers must
know how to throw it, how to
catch it, how to corral it when it
is bouncing about, and every boy
who wants to play should learn to
count, drop or place kick, besides
learning to run with the hall and
the formations that will help get
away with a run.
With the functions of the for
ward pass extended as they are
this year, the player who can
throw the ball accurately and far
will be in demand.
The best throwers either grasp
the ball with the fingers on the
lacing, with wrist and even the
thumb extending around its short
circumference, or else put one of
the points of the ball in the hand,
with the fingers extending along
its "meridians of longitude." In
either event they throw the ball
so it spins on Its long axis, a
"spiral" that sails true and is
more easly caught than the ball
that tumbles end over end.
In catching the ball take It with
arms and body. The best play
ers never try to handle a thrown
or ki< ke-d ball with the hands.
Take the ball against your
"bread-basket" and hug It with
both arms.
Despite Sam White's exploit, In
picking up a fumbled ball and
streaking for the goal, it Is best
to FALL, UPON a loose ball. Then
you have it. Cover the ball, curl
ing arms and body around It. This
must be learned, that the fall may
not result In injury. Varsity
teams spend weeks at thin part of
the game, so it wilf pay boys to
follow suit.
Kicking Is like pitching. It can
not be taugh by written words.
Better get someone who knows
how to act as instructor, that the
natural kicker • or -punter may
overcome his faults. Kicking is
partly a gift, partly the result of
long practice.
"When running with the ball
from formation in scrimmage, the
moat noticeable fault Is that the
back field doe* not start fast
enough. Those few yards between
the starting point and th« line
are the most important. If stop
ped there, the play la a loss. I: Yet
