fpENK COACHES REPLY
TO PROFESSOR O'BOLGKR
Bay Movement of Earlier Study Is
Idea of Student Body and Alumni.
All of tho University of Pennsylvania
toaches nro united In snjlng that Pro
cessor O'Bolgor is greatly mistaken In
believing tho trainers nro behind tho

tho alumni aro behind tho move

Kutatement Tho first-named trnlnor

WYCKOFF VS. JOHNSON
DUO IN WASHINGTON
Athletics, Smarting Under
Lashing From lied Sox,
Tackle Griffith's Na
tionals Today "Scoop"
Good Against "Walt."
WASHINGTON, April 27. - Connie
Mack's Athletics arrived hero this morn
ing from Boston less arrogant than they
havo been since their downfall In 1312,
when tho Bed Sox rnpturcd tho flag and
tho Nationals pushed them out of second
place, nut at thut. Mack Is not worry
ing. Tho great Sphynx of baseball Is
either holding something Up ono of his
long sleeves or he already has nccepted
the Inevitable-defeat for tho pennant.
Having lecelved ns a parting gift a
seven-Inning !-.' defeat from thn Red Sec
yesterday, neither Mack nor his players
invited confidences. Consequently hla
pitching selection for today ns given by
himself was tho "man who appears to bo
In tho best nhnpe." But It Is a-fairly easy
gues.i that If Waller Johnson works this
afternoon, "which he probnblv will, John
Weldon Wyckoff, tho former's tamer, will
orrupv tho pit.
Weldon has been successful over Wnlier
Johnson morn than nny other young
liurler In tho gnme. In tho first place,
Wyckoff seems to hnvn moro stuff against
Johnson than ho has ngalnst nny ono
else, nnd, furthermore, tho breaks of the
gnme nlunya hnxp gone with him ngalnst
tlm speed monarch.
It will bo recalled by Philadelphia fans
that Wyrkorf In 1913, his first yenr on tho
Athletic Irnm, pitched against Johnson In
the morning gnme of the Decoration Day
double-header. The Macks had been un
able to get a run ncross up to tho ninth
Inning, with two men down. In tho
menntlmn the Nationals had counted
twice. Suddenly, with Oldrlng nt bat,
tho Macks rallied. Bubo began with n
hit, which wns followed by enough to glvo
the Athletics a victory by a 3-2 count.

The Drummer of Spring
' By SAMUEL SCOVILLE, Jr.
General Spring, llko every good gen
eral, has a thoroughly organized army.
Ho first sends on a number of Bird
Scouts, who, llko Boy Scouts, nro es
pecially hardy and bravo.
This year, according to my record, tho
first two wero tho robin and tho blue
bird, which came In on February 12 to
Investigate tho stato of General Winter's
entrenchments. They woro closely fol
lowed, however, on tho Hth by tho pur
plo gracklo, a great purplo-hlack bird
with a oleo like an nlnrm clock ami u
bravo hcait which can't bo scared by any
amount of enow and cold. On March 2
Lieutenant Meadow Lark, who has chargo
of tho ncroplano division, camo sailing
nntl gliding over tho bare fields. Although
a courageous bird, ho always shown two
Whlto feathers when ho fllCB, and tho
front of his uniform Is black and gold.
On March 19 tho red-wltigod blackbird
with his crimson epaulets camo. On
March 20 tho cowblrd, which has a brown
head and n purplo-black body, sneaked
In very cautiously, as he nlwn.xs does. On
March 21 tho turkey buzzard with Mb
black-fringed wings sailed high up In tho
sky to reconnolter, whllo on that samo
day along tho ground camo tho fox-sparrow
with bin speckled breast nnd tawny
red back, tho largest and handsomest of
our sparrows. Then on March 27 camo
tho phoobe In her gray gown, ono of
Spring's most trusted splcB.
Theso wero tho very pick of General
Spring's HcoutB, warranted to stand nny
amount of bad weather. It was lucky
that ho had sent his most trustworthy
troop, for on April 3 General Winter
called up that fierce fighter, Colonel Bliz
zard nnd covered tho country whero I
llvo with drifts four nnd flvo feet deep.
Yet oen In tho whirl of tho blinding
snow nnd tho howl of tho ley wind, I
heard t'no notes of tho gracklcs and robins
nnd bluebirds, tho First Threo of thh
picked band calling encouragement to nil
On April 6 In tho gray sky came a
strango wild call ond thero Mashed ncross
It a bird with long, narrow wings nnd a
blnck band across his breast. It was the
kllldeer, tho earliest of tho plover fam
ily. On tho samo day I heard for die
first tlmo this year tho saddest nf all
tho bird notes, tho lonely, grlovlng Bob
of tho wood dove, who Is a plucky bltd,
however. In splto of her grlcf-strlcken
ways. Ono year I found her nest, a llt
tlo flat plntform of sticks with, two whlto
eggs, on tho last day of March.
Finally, on April 7 camo tho long drum
bent for Wnlch I had been waiting. Tho
Flicker, tho chief drummer of General
Spring's army had come, nnd I knew
that General Winter would now have to
retreat. Thu Flicker has a magnificent
uniform, and If ho wcro not so common
a bird, ornithologists would travel from
far nnd wldo to see him.
lto wears a gray hat with a ulrtismi
crescent e.n tho back of It, a buff-colored
waistcoat with black polUa-duts and a
wldo llo of sntln blnck. He him long
black moustaches running back on cither
sldo from tho bnso of his bill. Ills wings
and tnll feathers aro black above nnd
gold beneath and ho has a snowy-white
patch Just above tho tail, by which ho
can always bo told when Hying. He loves
to drum. On my placo bo drums every
morning on a tin plato which covers a
decayed Btub of ono of my trees. When
he finishes drumming ho gives a long.
lolling Bhout which sounds llko "yucca-yuica-yucca-yucca
- yucca - yucca," and
when I hear him I know that spring Is
really here. Later on Mrs. Flicker will
lay from flvo to eight eggs llko pink
pears In a round hole, which they dig In
tho tree. Every Boy Scout should know
and lovo Flicker tho Drummer.
Jinny Scouts Pass Tests
More than DO scouts passed llrst-class
cooking tests at Lawndnlo and West
