Former Athletics' Iron
Man Will be Seen on
Mound in Second of-Series
Erskine Mayer Due
to Pitch.
Fans who were wont to Infest Shlbe
park to see John Coombs, the mighty
Iron Man, hurl, may have a chance to
see the Kenncbunklan again In action.
Tealerday Coomba was warming up with

chosen by Manager Robinson to do tho
pitching. But this afternoon It Is almost
certain that Coombs, In tho togs of the
Brooklyn Dodgers, will be seen In tho
firing pit against the Phillies.
Erskine Mayor will do the pitching for
the Phillies, unless Pat Moran decides at
the last moment to depart from his regu
lar order of choosing his twlrlors. Mnyer
was due to pitch before Chalmers, but
as the "Comibaek" was In good condition
yesterday ho was sent In and won his
gamo from Brooklyn, E to 2.
Thus far the Phillies have won 10 out
of 11 starts. Their play yesterday was
far from tho peppery stuff they havo been
putting up In tho games gone by, but at
that they managed to win, which, as far
as tho fans are concerned. Is the main
Issue. This afternoon there should be a
good crowd out to cheer tho fleet Phils
on to their 11th victory.
The game today Is scheduled to begin
at 3:30 o'clock.

Bressler or Wyckoff May Op
pose Ayres or Johnson To
day Shawkey's Good Work.
"WASHINGTON. April 23. It was gen
orally believed that the great weakness
of the Athletics this season lay In the
pitching staff, but yesterday's perform
ance showed them to bo strong In that
department nnd weak on the ' offense.
Shnwkey hurled a beautiful gnme, allow
ing but three hits, yet the Mnckmen were
unaoic to win. MacK cannot hope to have
any bettor pitching today than ho had
yesterday, but he doubtless figure that
his team will be better with the stick later
on in tho season.
Bressler or Wyckoff will be In the box
for the Athletics against Doc Aycrs or
u alter Jonnson today. Should Avers bo
called on to pitch. Mack will bo sure to
uso Bressler, but If Johnson goea In. Wyc
koff wilt bo used by the tall Phllndel
phlan. The ony possible chango Mack may
make today Is In tho third base station.
McConnell has been making good at
Baker's, old place, but at that Mack may
decide to try King Kopf again.
Ineligibility of Captain Thomas and
Two of Crew Hard Blow.
Three of the Central High School star
oarsmen have been declared Ineligible
and tho resignation of both Captain Carl
Thomas and Manager Baldl has been
asked for by Prof. Philip Maas, chairman
of tho Committee on Rowing at the Broad
and Green streets Institution.
The three oarsmen who were declared
ineligible are Homing, bow; Uhoads, No.
2, and Stafford, No. 5, all of whom have
fallen back In their scholastic standing
and will be unable to compete for one
month. Boming and Rhoads rowed In last
j ear's American lntcrscholastic cham
pionship eight, while Stafford wns con
sidered to be one of the mnlnstays of
this year's boat. Manager Baldl Is also
back In his studies.
The athletic commission nt Central
High contributes $100 a year to tho main
tenance of the crew, and this money has
already been spent for repairs to the
shell and tho trip to Annapolis lust Sat
urday, when tho Plobes defeated tho
Crimson and Gold eight.
Slnco all the funds have been expended
it is not likely that tho Central Hicrh
School crew will go to New Haven on
May S to row tho Yale freshmen.
