Frank linker arrived. Other members
of the squad who will bo coming Into

Bender, Plank, Davis, Schang, Harry,
Oldrlng, and possibly Strttnk and Mc
Innls. All of these players will take a few
days' rest while the Athletics arc play

Baker Is going to take a day or so off
for the purpose of visiting his farm at
Trappe, Md., wheto he will keep the edgo

Eddie Collins will engage chiefly In rest
at his home In ti.iindow tie, with a little

The other members of the club who will
be In Philadelphia will divide their time
between complete test and light work at
Shlbe Park, with the exception of Plank,
who Is booked to visit his friends and rela
tives In Gettysburg, Pa. "Chief" Bender,
who, with Plank, will do the bulk of the
Athletics' defense work in the series, will
play golf.
Mack himself will probably be In Wash
ington tomorrow. He will, as usual,
leave all of the business details of the
series to John Shlbe and his corps of
assistants, while he devotes his entire
time to planning for the series' battles.
There are several youngsters on Con

the Nationals in Washington, and thesj
will be given a careful review.
