Professor O'Bolger Replies
Hotly to Plea in Behalf of
Hours for Athletics.
Prof. Thomas D. O'Bolger, of the Eng
lish department of tha University of
Pennsylvania, this morning gave out a
statement in which he attacked the plea
of tho coaches and students of the Uni
versity who are advocating S o'clock
hours for recitations and lectures. Doc
tor O'Bolger assailed the athtetlo sys
tern aa being made more Important than
the scholastlo work. He also objected
to being made to do etra work to please
the Pennsylvania coaches, to whom he
referred as "eliner not couege men, or,
If they are, are only so by living upon
her good nama and our undergraduate
enslavement to tha commercialism of
This statement In reference to the
coaches Is what most angered tha stu
dents. As a. matter of fact, the students
point out, tho coaches of all four major
sport teams are college graduates. Dr.
George W. Orton, coach of the track
team, has a degree of doctor of philos
ophy from Pennsylvania, while Roy
Thomas, coach of the baseball team, and
George II. Brooke, coach of tho football
team, are both Pennsylvania graduates.
Vivian Nlekalle, coach of the crews. Is
a graduate of Oxford University, Eng
land . . .
Doctor O'Bolger, in the course of his
statement, suggests that tha coaches
themselves get up early In the morning,
and that ft won't hurt the studenta to
take their athletic recreation In the early
morning Instead of the late afternoon.
It la expected that the matter of 8
o'clock hoSrs ill be decided by a vote
of ths student body.

Charles Dooln on Sick Llat
B..U. fan. MMnR-X ZT-
1. out of th
Damon Bunyon, In the New York
American, contributes a classic to the
sports comment of the day In his ap
praisal of Grover Cleveland Alexander,
of the Phillies, and Walter Jo'nnson, of
Washington. It Is:
"Whenever wo sea Grover Cleveland
Alexander pitching at top form, we con
clude that he Is the, greatest right
handed pitcher In the land, and we cling
to that conclusion until Walter Perry
Johnson comes along with a line of his
best pelting. Tnen we decide that Walter
Is the greatest, and we hold to that de
cision o the day that 'Alex' reappears.
"in short, our mind probably none too
stable at best does a heap of vacillat
ing between these Western wonders, and
wo are certain of only Just one thing
with respect to their ability whhh Is
that It's either Grover or Walter vho Is
t'ne greatest right-hander. On Mondays
It might bo Alex; on Tuesdays, Walter
but It's one or the other so far as we
"This Is merely a personal opinion to
which you may not subscribe. You may
think that Mathewson, or rtudolph, or
Bill James, or Willie Doak Is greatest.
and we have no doubt that you can pro
duce Just as many arguments In sup
port of your belief as we can offer In
trying to bolster up our view, but It Is
our opinion that Johnson and Alexander
today stand out head and shoulders
above all the rest as Individual pitchers.
NOT YET MATHEWSON.
"We doubt If either of them will ever
approach Mathewson when he was at his
best, however, because we do not be
lieve that either of them will ever make
tlie study of their craft that Mathewson
did. The Old Master will go down In
baseball history as one of tha greatest
pitchers of all time, but neither John
son nor Alexander has yet made a place
of that sort for himself in the memory
of the game.
"They are both great pitchers, but there
have probably been many Just aa great
and there has been only one Mathewson.
The oldest inhabitants of baseball rate
the big Pennsylvanlan right along with
Hadboume. Time is the big test of a
pitcher, and in time Alexander or John
son or both may prove as great as Ma
thewson, but that time la not yet.
"For one thing, they have not had (he
opportunity. The mighty Mathewson was
generally carrying a whole ball club on
his back, and that ball club out In front,
where it was most conspicuous. Time
and again it fell to him to fight the crucial
battles of the big town outfit to pitch
the games on which hung the most im
portant issues of the campaign, and he
"Even today you cannot count Mathew
son wholly out when considering the
question of ths greatest pitcher in ths
country In sagacity, in sheer mastery of
his craft, he is probably still ths greatest,
of thsm all. and it would be highly char
acteristic of ths Old Master to bob up
gsin this reason with pea of his best
lecoids, but he no longer possesses the
physical stiensth that Is behind the arm
of the Kansas Cyclone and the Nebraska
"It happens that they have both' been
denied the glory that goes with a world's
series. Both gained fame with clubs that
have slnco figured to a greater or less
extent In the battles for tho pennants,
but In the main Johnson and Alexander
had to fight their fights back behind the
cheering. They were the Ituckera of the
right-handers, so to Bpeak, whllo Matty
was nearly always up where the shouting
"Some fans are dreaming this year or
seeing Alexander and Johnflon as oppo
nents In the first game of the 1915 world's
series, but they are mostly Philadelphia
and Washington fans who are having
those dreams, and we doubt If the dreams
will come true. It would be a grand
sight, however, and It might help In
solving the problem of which Is greater
Johnson or Alexander.
PLAYERS PAVOIt "ALEX."
"Ball players who have hit against
both men or rather who haven't hit
against them, for there Is never much
hitting against Walter or Grover say
that the Nehraskan is the better of the
two. They say he has as much 'stuff'
and knows how to use it better than
"In the matter of control last season
they were about equal. Alexander passed
78 batsmen In 43 games, while Johnson
walked 74 In 61 pastimes. Alexander hit
11, and Johnson nicked the same number
Walter cut loose 14 wild pitches, and
Alexander one. In rolnt of average runs
earned per nlne-tnnlng game Alexander
shows up with Z.3S, and Johnson with 1.71.
"Johnson had a much better club be
hind him last year than Alexander, and
that undoubtedly helps a pitcher's show
ing in the figures, but then Johnson was
a great pitcher with a bad club, even
as Alexander waB great Jast season with
a bad club. '
"The Nebraskan has none of what you
might call the pitching style that marks
the work of Johnson, or at least the
pitching style that is favored by most
baseball men. He tends to a side-arm
motion in his pitching, and there are
scouts in baseball right now who will
not give a side-arm pitcher a second
glance. They marvel that Alexander can
have any control at all with that motion.
On the other hand, Johnson has all the
prescribed baseball 'stance' to his fling
ing. "As a matter of personal choice, how
ever, v would rather watch Alexander
work than Johnson.- To us it seems that
he has mores natural grace In the box,
despite, that motion, than the big Wash
ington propeller. There are mighty few
pitchers who come under ths head of
things of beauty when they are working,
but 'Alex' is one of them.
"Matthewson is another Rucker is still
another Rube Marquard is a pitching
picture So Is Ray Caldwell Spit bailers,
like Jeff Tesreau for instance, and the
underhanded species do not interest the
audience) as much as ths others, though
tby pult b pltsWng better ball.''

BOSTON. Muss . April 21 Encouraged
nt their good showing on Saturdnv. when
Herb Pennock pitched them to n 0-3 c
tory over the Red Sox, the Athletics feel
rejuvenated todny. They expect to cap
ture tho series with the Fenway feltons
by taking tho final game. President I.nn

that the Athletics may catch tho Federal

Rube Bressler U scheduled to do the
pitching for the Athletics today, with Mc
Avoy behind the bat. Either Collins or
Foster will do the hurling for the Amer
ican Leaguo favorites. Foster worked In
the latter pait of tho game on Saturday
but ho did not pitch enough to prevent
his starting this afternoon. Foster was
put In by Manager Carrlgan to ascertain
In just what condition he was. He proved
that he was In excellent shape, ns he
held the Mackmen down Just as tightly
aa "baby" Ruth did during nls short
term In the box.
While McConnell, the young thlrd-acker
tthom Mack tried out Saturday afternoon,
made one boot out of three (leldlng
chances, he made such a showing nt the
bat that Mack probably will keep him In
the game until another loss Is suffered.
