give the prizes not to the man who, In
their opinion, was the most tlnlshed per

who had been most valuable to his team
This suggestion has been and will be
followed this jear.
N'o matter what details are to be con-
Mdored, It Is difficult to see how Eddie
Collins could be overlooked. lie I? not :
only recognized by most experts as the I
world's greatest ball plaer, but he has
been thl3 season the most valuable man
on the Atnletlcs' team. Officials of t' e
White Elephants and others have often
been heard to declare emphatically that '
the Athletics were not a one-man team.
To a certain extent that Is true, but If

When Connie Mack glanced over the

While not equaling the actual baseball
ability of CollliiB, both Alexander and
CapUIn Magee, of the Phillies, have sur
passed the Athletics' star in relative util
ity. Those two men have kept the heads
of the Phillies aboe water. The disin
tegration of this club's strength by the
ravages of the Federal League has been
letarded to a certain extent by the mas
terful play of Dooln's pitcher extraordi

use of the term "utility man" here is not

which Is its usual meaning in baseball,

In order to get his club in perfect shape
to meet the- BoBton Braves, who have all
but won the pennant In the National
League, Connie Mack il!l give his regu
Mackmen piled up half a dozen runs.
By capturing the pennant in 1911, Con
nie Mack has established a world's man
agerial record, having won six flags In
Ban Johnson's circuit since the inception
of the league In lM.
In 1902, the first ear Mack's Athletics
won the pennant, there was no world's
In 1903. his second vlctorj. the Athletics
were defeated In the classic by New
York, four games to one. In 1510. nfter
a lapse or Ave ears, Mack again steered
his club to the front, winning the pennant
und also the world's series, beating the
Cubs in decisive fashion, after the ma
jority of experts had picked Chance's
men to have a walk-over.
The following vear. the flag again was
perched oi a Philadelphia pole and again
the Athletics landed the world's scries,
winning their first one from the Giants.
In 1912. Mack met reverses which put
Ills club in third place at the finish, the
Ited S-)c finishing first ind the Washing
ton team second.
Last season, with what was predicted
to be a notoriously weak pitching staff,
the Athletics came to the front, thanks
well, considering the Indifferent work of
the team as a whole behind him. On
Saturday "Alex" won his 13th consecu
tive victory and his :7th of th season.
j This string of 13 straights Is. all things
' 0 considered, better than "Rube' Mm
,,rjuard's run of 13 in 1913 In the first
-'place McGraw's lft-hander was with a
Inning club; secondly, Marquard's rec
ord was established early in the season
when the other clubs had not reached
mldseason development. Alexander, on
the other hand, began his successive
winning streak with n second division
team when all of the clubs of the lague
were supposed to have reached the
zenith of their 1914 form. Boston was
going better than at any time this sea
son and the Giants were running along
better than they are toda during the
early period In which Alexander was
winning with such disconcerting regu
larity. This afternoon, (he Phillies are to clash
with the f'lw'nnati Reds In the last
game which these club pIh this season
The game will begin at llp.ad and Hunt
ingdon streets at 3 o'clock There will
be no game hore tomorrow. Tuesday's
contest was moved back and played here
Saturday when the Phillies won the
double-header from Herzog's henchmen.
The vast difference between the play
ing enthusiasm of a tall-end club and
one at the head of the column was never
more plainly illustrated than by the work
of the Cincinnati Reds. Upon the oc
casion of their first visit to Philadelphia
this year, the Reds showed a ast
amount of ' go." They were then lead
ing the league and thev looked Ilka the
world-beaters, which they later proved
they were not Saturda these same
Reds looked like a second division club
of a Class n league The r errors, com
mission and omission, were combined, al
most as numerous as their put-outs.
In fact the play of this club was the
worst seen on the local field this year
"Gawy" Cravath has a chance to sur
pass his home-run record of nineteen,
established last season His four-sack
smash Saturday brought the figure up to
eighteen for this season and there are

Frank Baker, the so-called 'Home-Run
King" has staged his specialty hut nine
times this campaign, just half the num
ber that Cravath has made The argu
ment haB been made that the Phillies
could not make so many home runs If
they played In any park but their own
That may or may not be true. It is a
faot that it Is easier to hit home runs
Into the left and center field bleachers
at the local National League Park than
anywhere on the major league circuit,
but It is also a fact that the high right
field wall prevents many drives from
being home runs which would go for
" four-timers" at other parks During
the past week, there has been no lean
than eight balls driven against the wall,
which In the opinion of most of those
who saw them would have gone over tho
wall at Shibe Park, but which netted the
oastmen only one base.

Whether or not Pennsylvania will have
a football team of championship propor
tions or one of only mediocre strength
was not disclosed bv Saturday's game
against Gettysburg. That 14-0 victory was
won by a comfortable margin, and pretty
accurately gauges the comparative
strength of the two teams. At the same
time, when wc remember the defenseless
ness of Gettysburg last ear and the
smashing victory which the Quakers won
then by the score of 53-0, two facts stand
forth with great clearness. One is that
this year's Gettysburg team knew more
football than Its predecessor and likewise
that it displajed a better fighting qual
ity. A second fact not to be overlooked
is that this year's Quaker team is not
nearly so far advanced in its attacking
power as was the 1913 eleven In its first
Virtually all of the faults evident In the
work of the Red and Blue were due to
lack of practice, an entirely new back
field and lack of unity between the back
fleld and the line. These weaknesses
were to bo expected and won't cause the
coaches undue alarm In fact, a 14-0
score for the first game Is much more
desirable than one of 53-0 proportions.
Nothing retards the progress of a team
more than ovei confidence, and big pre
liminary scores Invatiably contrlbue to
that. The Quakers still have plenty of
time to get in shape for their big games,
nnd the schedule has been so graduated
that each Saturday brings a tougher op
ponent to Franklin Field.
After all the publicity that has been '
given to th new rule barring coacts
fiom the side lines there was a good deal
of surprise In the stands and the press i
box over the fact t.iat both sides ignored I
the rule. The possibility that this rule '
might be violated or disregarded was i
touched upon in these columns last week
What happened was this. When the
game started the referee saw Coach
O'Brien, of Gettysburg, standing on thi
edge of the gridiron on his side of the
field On the south aide Pat Dwyer. the
Pennsylvania assistant coach and trainer, j
v.as kneeling on the side line. Tho offi
cials mentioned the new rule and asked '
O'Brien what he intended to do. O'Brien '
called attention to tho presence of Dwyer '
on the other side of the field. Dwyer '
seemed to think that he was entitled to
n position on the side )ln In his capacity
as trainer, but said he had no objection

EDGERTON, STATE COLLEGE
"Tol" Pendleton Says
Princeton Is Committed to
Open Game This Year and
needs more than anything else Is more
Intelligent schedule making. Cornell has
had several bitter experiences In this line
within the last year. Last fall the
Ithacan met so many hard opponents In
October, nearly all of which were forti
fied with preliminary practice, that they
were beaten twice, Fcored upon twice
and held once to a scoreless tie before
they had played any of their champion
ship games. Last year Pittsburgh was
sixth on the Cornell schedule and this
ear moved up to second place. Several
j ears ngo Cornell's schedules were criti
cised because the October games were so
easy that tho team didn't get enough
practice, and when the really big games
were played tho team was badly beaten.
Now the Ithacnns hae gono to the other
extreme. It Is not necessarily a dis
grace to be beaten by a team of Pitts
burgh's calibre, but If Cornell had plavcd
Pittsburgh later the (schedule would have
lars a rest. .lust which ones will come i lo O'Brien remaining where he wa
home from St. Loui. Instead of making
the trip to Washington, has not been an
nounced. It is safe to say. however, that
both Bender and PlanU will be in Phili
dplphia within th not few hours.
I pon theso eteran hurlers will fall

Immwliatflv to get In shape. The othr
members of the squad who feel that they
need a rJ5t will take it. Their places
will be filled by the younger members
of the house of Mack
Next Wednesday the National Commis
sion will meet In this city to arranre the.
details of the series. It hns already ben
agreed that Instead of alternating between
Philadelphia and Boston, two games will
be played In a row. This will prevent the
wear and tear on the players, who would
suffer greatly If thev were forced to spend
every night on the ralla.
The spin of a coin will decide whether
the first pair of oontests Is to b staged
here or in Boston That will be the first
duty of tho commission when It meets
here nnd is the most Important as far aa
the. public Is concerned The routine mat
ters pertulning to the series will be, for
thw most part, worked out by John Bhlbe,
uecrctary of the Athletics, who has had
more experience In this kind of work than
any man connected with baseball.

Tie came Monday, September 31,
Neither cantaln objected, and since this
was regarded as a practice game the !
officials dldn t Interfere, and the two j
men remained on the side lines thiough
rut the game just as though the rule
didn't exist. '
Attention should be railed to the fact
that neither side properly Interpreted th
rule. Each assumed that the rule dis
tinctly barred coaches from the side lino
and seemed to feel that a trainer might
remain there with propriety. Listen to
the rule (rule xxlv . sec. 4):
"All who are admitted to the enclosura
must be seated throughout the game. No i
person shall be allowed to walk up and I
down on either side of the field "
Tly any fair Interpretation of this rule
neither Dwyer nor O'Drien had any right I
on the side line. But since the whole
rulebook has no official standing, but Is
accepted by common consent, any rule
may be suspended or changed by the cap- i
tains of the two teams. This comment '
Is not made In criticism or the infringe-
ment of the rule, for there wasn't the t
dllzhtest sign of coaching by either Bide ,
to prevent the possibility of which the
rule was made. Hoth sides regarded this '
a merely a practice game and wished
to have their men in a position where
they could properly Judge the work of
the plajare But If this were only a ,
practice game tt would seem that all the
rules should be strictly enforced and none ,
waived, even by common consent ,
Thero was a gTeat deal of Interest .
on the part of the spectators In the et- '
perlment of numbering the players. This
progressive Innovation by the Pennsjl
vania management was thoroughly ap
proved by tha crowd, and especially the '
newspaper men. The only deserved critl-
clam that could be made was that the j
number were entirely too small. The j
Quaker management Intends to uae bis-
ger numbers for succeeding games and
to have them painted on the Jerseys with
white lead, which will be permanent ana
enable them to be seen dlBtlnctly from
all parts of the field.
There were no surprise! on other grid
Irons, unless Cornell's defeat at the hands
of Pittsburgh could be so classed. Whllo
all the other big teams won about as
they pleased, Cornell teems to have been
fairly outplayed by the Pittsturgh eleven.
Remembering that last year Pittsburgh
beat Cornell 20 to 7 and that this year
the men from the western end of the
State not oily had as strong a team as
last year, but one with the advantage
of several weeks more preliminary prac
tice than Cornell, this result should not
have been entirely unexpected.
It simply indicates that what Cornell

PERSONAL TOUCHES IN SPORT
The home-grown and the home-mado
brand of evorythlng In every land is
rated pretty high. The farmer likes his
home-grown saas an' there's an undis
puted class to mothor'a home-mado pto.
That home-mado hunch hit Connie Mack
somo sov'ral baseball seasons back. He
tried It with success. He made Shibe
Purk his garden plot an" raised young
pltchors till ho'd got a pretty olossy mcs1?.
Take Wcldon Wyckoff, graduate. 01'
Connio got that youngster straight from
Bucknoll'H college nlno. The kid's birth
place was Wllllamsport, whoro Big Six
Matty learned the Bport an' first began
to shine. Tho birthplace, maybe, didn't
count, but Connie saw n, vast amount of
promise In the kid. Ho 'brought him up
thro years ngo an' worked his cultivator
slow, so YVoldon wouldn't skid.
This year lie works his reg'lar day. Ho
gotp right In an' fires away with all n,
veteran's skill. In five games pitched
he'll drag down three. An' that's enough
to show that he can twirl that o' Reach
pill. For 22 he's goln' some. Mack banks
on him for years to come to help eop
more burgees. He's learned a lot in
Connie's school. Ho'll stick, too, if he
nln't a fool, to take some more degreos.

"Joe" Guyon, one of the speediest In

a star football player, but has mado good
on track and field.
Visitors to tho Olympla Athletic Asso

Is warning enough.

The nnnunl football season haR opened
and the gridiron wnrrlor now make3 his
bow. In holmet, padded suit nnd guards,
he steps upon tho stage, to cop his hit of

Persons who wero so keen about bet

are not offering anv thing better than
B to 4 JtiBt now. It's quite likely that

hopo to linger long enougji In major

The Intel national league season wound
up yesterday with Providence as the pen
nant winner. Although the clubs put up
one of the tightest races In the history
of tho league, tho season wns a financial
"Josh" Dcvore Is rapidly becoming
second Ira Thomas. Ira has fallen Into
more soft money than any man in base
bnll. "Josh," howevor, at the present
rate, will make a record close to Thomas'.
"Josh" wasn't good onough for the Giants,
henco ho wns turned loose on tho un
stablo baseball firmament. He was
shunted around the league, until he fi
nally landed In Boston. Now "Josh" It
about to cut in on another big slice.
A parallel to "Josh" Dcvore's good for
tune In getting In on world's series
money, because ho was not up to the
standard, is found In the case of
"Johnny" Lavnn. Lnst year Johnny was
with the Browns. Ho was such an In
different performer nt the bat, that when
Connie Mack wanted a shortstop to fill
in when Barry wns hurt. "Johnny" was
turned over to tho Athletics Immediately.
"Itubc" Oldrlng tried his hand at short
during Barry's absence from the game
nnd played so well that Lavan was not
used at all. Lnvan, however, wns on the
bench during the world's series and got
his full share of the coin.
Von Ohl, the Athletics' road secretary
and human dynamo. Is about to get Into
action. World's series arc his specialties.
Wo note that In another column of this
edition It Is remarked that the first busi
ness of tho Nationnl Commission here
next Wednesday will be to toss the coin
to ascertain where the first world's se
ries gnmes will bo played. Wrong. That's
the second thing.
Tho Athletics will have nn off-day to
morrow. The schedule makers must have
"doped" out Just when they would clinch
tho flng and arranged It so they could plan
ways to prevent any of the world's series
money getting away from them.
