BUT THEY DO REAL "GOME BACK"
Johjison and Thayer Had Hard Time in Capturing the Lawn
Tennis Doubles of Pennsylvania Lamed "Came uacu
Once Comment on the Local Baseball Clubs,
"COME-BACKS" TN TENNIS ARE DIFFICULT; THEY DID IT
Although Dr. IS. 11. Dowhurst and J. II. Carpenter wero defeated yester
day on tho Merlon lawn tennis courts for the doubles tltlo of Pennsylvania,
they played a brand of the International jmstlmo which might at any moment
have chansod defeat Into victory. Tho conquerors, Wallace V, Johnson and
Alexander V. Thayer, wcro fortunate lit annexing tho Stato championship, Inas
much as they did not put up a gamo which absolutely forbado defeat at tho
hands of tho runncrn-up.
It might appear that Innsmuch as Johnson and Thayer won this eamo
tournament last yenr they wcro In a class, In doubles, by themselves In this
State. But auci. Is not tho case. Tho scores of tho flnnls yesterday wero
i-S, 7-G, 6-3. Tho point score was very close, and the Ultlmnto winners wcro
vpry fortunato In breaking through their opponents' services ns they did. A
few well-earned and a fow lucky points turned tho tldo In favor of Johnson
find Thayer, when an equal amount of good fortuno would havo swayed tho
matches tho other way. This Is particularly truo of tho second, and crucial,
set of tho scries.
Uoth teams wcro moro unsteady than usual. Doctor Dowhurst and Car
penter, who had played a brilliant gamo up to tho finals, appeared to bo
decidedly on, and it wub tho opinion of many present that had all four men
played their best games tho result would havo been In favor of tho pair that
The general Impression nmoug tho spectators yesterday was that Doctor
Dewhurst and Carpenter hod achieved a decided "come back," In splto of tho
loss of tho final round. Their play throughout tho tournament, at times
against heavy odds, was consistently good. They manifested tho samo adapta
tion to each othor's gamo that they did somo years ago, when they won tho
Stato five times In succession.
Had the Doubles Going Their Way
It was In 1904 that Doctor Dowhurst and Carpontcr won tho Stato champion
ship in doubles. From 1904 until 190S, InclusUc, this pair, who played Bitch a good
nil-round gamo at Merlon this year, won tho doubles in this State. That is u
record of Which any tennis player might bo proud. But It Is no hotter tluui tho
work they did this year. They paired again and put up a battlo which would
havo dono credit to any team In this vicinity, not excluding N'orrls Williams
and a good partner.
Thero is not only a chance, but tho odds really favor Doctor Dewhurst
and Carpenter winning another State doubles championship before they will
havo dissolved partnership for good. Naturally, it is very hard for tennis
players to regain lost prestige, but It can bo done, and It appears that Doctor
Dewhurst and Carpenter aro tho men to do it.
Since 1881, tho year In which tho American national championships In
lawn tennis began, thero has been only ono real "como back" In the game,
including both singles ami doubles. This occurred In singles. In 1901 Bill
Lamed won tho singles tltlo at Newport. Tho following yenr ho lepcated, but
during tho threo years succeeding ho was beaten by II. L. Doherty, tho Eng
lishman; II. Ward and Deals C. Wright, In order. It was then thought that
Larncd was "through." But ho pulled himself together and, Instead of being
defeated for tho fourth time, actually won tho championship In 1907-03-09-10-11,
playing n gamo which was practically unbeatable by any ono In this country
or In any other. Slnco then Larncd has attempted to "como back" again, but ho
has failed woefully, and It Is doubtful If ho will ever mako another serious
attempt to do so. Ago and rheumatism havo been too much for him.
Tho national doubles show tho samo thing as tho singles, In tho matter
of "coming back," except that thero Is no Incldcnco of "twin" Larncds in tho
doubles. Sears and Dwlght, Campbell and Iluuntlngdon, Hobard nnd Hovoy,
Ware nnd Sheldon, Davis and Ward, tho Doherty brothers. Ward and Wright and
Hackctt and Alexander all had their days. But they never came back, and
most of them tried hard.
H. L. Doherty Tried It Once
Just how hard It is to "como back," no matter how short or how long tho
tlmo elapsing between tho zenith of glory and tho attempt to renew it, II. L.
Doherty can testify. H. L. and his brother, It. !'. Doherty, captured tho doubles
In this country In 1903, whllo tho former won the singles. Both continued to
play In England, yet In 1912, when H. L. attempted the "como back," ho was
beaten badly by F. B. Alexander on tho Hlvlera, nt Monto Carlo. And Alex
ander, -while always a wonderful doubles player, was never rnted In this
country as tho best among the singles players.
Nineteen Runs From Thirteen Hits
In the two games between tho Mackmen and New York yesterday tho
Athletics mado by 13 hits, yet they tallied 19 runs. This Is ono of tho freak
Vongles of baseball, when contrasted with tho general averago of threo hits
to a run, that tho Mackmen have been making so far this season. Theso
figures also show that the victories were duo moro to tho slovenly work of
the New York pitchers than to tho brilliancy of tho Mackmen; but they help,
and a fow moro successful days may send tho team higher up In tho race.
Poor Fielding; and Pitching Feature of Yanks' Play
For tho first tlmo this season tho Athletics succeeded In winning a double
header, and thero wore but few occasions last season when they turned tho
trick, oven though they won tho pennant. To say that both victories wero
deserved would bo stretching tho point a bit, aa they wore practically handed
to the Mackmen through miserablo Melding and indifferent pitching of tho
Yankees. Seldom have any twirlers given moro slovenly exhibitions In this
city, and local fans have seen quite a number of poorly pitched games of
ball here this year.
Stuffy Mclnnls is a born .300 hitter. Ho has been slugging around that
coveted figure ever since he iecame a regular member of tho Athletics, and
Indications are that he Intends to keep It up. Whllo tho last averages show
Stuffy to bo somewhat under .300, he has been coming back strong during tho
lust few games. In the first contest yesterday Stuffy had two doubles and a
single In four times up not such a bad showing for a young man of his
Barely do the Phillies loso a game on a Holding mlsplay, but they did yes
terday In Pittsburgh. In tho 13th round, jvlth tho score 3 all, Collins opened
with a single. He should havo been forced at second on Balrd's grounder, but
Bancroft mado a pinch boot for the Pirates, and all hands wero safe. Hlnch
man'u single did the rest.
The White Sox Increased their lead In tho American Leaguo by remaining
Idle. The Bed Sox and Washington split a double header. The second gamo
went ten rounds before tho Nationals were ablo to get tho 6-5 decision.
According to the number of hits, total bases, errors, etc., tho Phils and
Pirates should be playing yet. Both clubs had ten hits, for 15 bases, and each
had a couple of errors.
Jack Barry's presence In Mack Infield Is an nbsoluto necessity at the
present time, Wltnout parry, Malono was lost at second. Barry Is likely to be
out of tho game for several days, aa his hand la badly bruised. Tho youngsters
who fill In will have their troubles, without tho veteran to steady them.
Seldom has a manager switched his team about as Mack did In the eighth
inning of the first game. Mclnnls and Lapp wero the only players In their
original positions after the plnch-hlttlng brigade was through. Walsh, Oldrlng
and Lajole replaced Conway, Kopf and Malone, while Strunk moved to centre.
With Davles and Murphy replacing Walsh and Oldrlng. Bush waa then4 sent in
to replace Brlssler on the mound.
Malone had an easy double play in front of him In the third Inning of tho
first game, but ha threw poorly to first. Two runs were tallied after this

hard on his first two trips to the plate, but
jxiugh robbed him of a hit.
Brewster refuses to help his catcher, and visiting players have little trouble
stealing bass when the southpaw in on. the mound. He grossed Lapp twice
yesterday, when the latter called for a waste pjteh.

Arthur Haskins, Alias Henry Harrington, Joins the Team.
He Also Makes a Few Remarks About Baseball to
a Stranger Who Seems Interested.

J. Arthur Hnsklns waved away
doubt with a strong, brown hand.
"I'll make good," said he. "You
needn't worry nbout that part of It. I
know what I can do."
"Suro you will!" said Atwood.
"As for my amateur standing," con
tinued tho young man, "I suppose that's
renlly a sentimental consideration."
"Now you'vo said something!" said tho
scout heartily. "I'll bring a. contract
around hero next week, and wo'll fix
tho thing up."
Tho season was half over when J.
Arthur Haskins packed his wardrobe

The old man (licked his cigar end Into
tho waste-paper basket, and took stock
of his recruit. J. Arthur was tall, slen

cclored hair was pushed straight back
without the faintest suggestion of a
parting. In front of his ears ho wore
slight tufts of fuzz. Outside of these
things, the old man could find no fault
"Built like a greyhound," was Ter
huno's mental comment. "Ho ought to
run the bases like a streak."
"There's a sparo uniform that will nt

get It out for you. Qo down to the desk
and tell the clerk, you're with the team,
and lio'll give you a room. The bus
leavos the hotel at 1:30 today."
The old man picked up his pen-slgnlfy-Ing
that the Interview was closed.
J. Arthur lingered.
"1'va been thinking," he said, "that
perhaps It might be Just as well for me
to take another name. Family reasons,"
The old man waved his pen.
"Take any old name," he said gener

the name of Harrington. Henry Har

"IWa Immense!" said the old man
J. Arthur went down to the desk
where he registered as Henry Harring

room. Then he sat down In the lobby,
and read the morning papers. A young

"Yes," said tho young man. "I'm go

knew how to drop In a question at the
proper time, 'J. Arthur HasklnB blos
somed like a Illy In the sun. With the
air of one who gives Instruction, he ex
plained to the young man the theory of
baseball, and the stranger listened with
a rapt expression. J, Arthur embellished
his statements with original reflections
and personal experiences, and the stran
ger led him on craftily until he had
sucked htm dry of Ideas,
"Yes," said the youthful theorist. In
summing up. "the day of the old-time,
rowdy ball player Is over, done for
ever. The natural evolution of the
game along sclentlflo lines .has elimi
nated him. Hlo ability was purely phys
ical. The ballplayer of today Is the man
who can think as well as act. That Is
why so many of the young college men
are entering the professional field. They
have been trained to use. their brains as
well as their hands and feet; they have
a natural advantage over the slower-wit-ted
ballplayer of 10 years ago. It would
not surprise m in the least," remarked
J. Arthur, "it the big league scouts
should hereafter confine their activities
mainly to the college diamond."

JUGGLING OF QUAKER
CREWS CREATES BIG
Penn Hooters Believe That
Coach Nickalls Is Mak
ing Last Desperate Ef
for to Form Winning
LUrcd on by a feeling of uncertainty In
tho outcomo entirely unprecedented In
the history of the Poughkoepsle regatta,
a big delegation of University of Penn
sylvania graduates, undergraduates nnd
followers of tho Quaker crew will go to
I'ougbkecpslo next Monday morning In n
special train to cheer for tho Ited and
IJlue. Although Pennsylvania men are
upset by the many radical changes Conch
Vivian Nickalls has made within tho last
weok, they aro not willing to count their
crew out of tho running. Many think
that tho defeats suffered by tho varsity
crew majui that both crows nro strong
and evenly matched rather than that tho
vnrslty Its weak. .
Tho almost dally, wholcsalo shifting
which Coach Ntcknlls has been making
has astonished not only Pennsylvania
mon, but rowing mon In general. It Is
rare Indeed that any coach makes changes
Involving moro t'nan ono or two mon
nftcr his crows arrive nt Poughkcopslo.
But Nickalls apparently has thrown cau
tion to tho winds nnd resolved to tako
desperate chances to turn out a winning
It Is almost certain thnt Nickalls will
not mako any moro changes this weok
nnd that Herbert Shoemaker will bo tho
stroke, with Mnrcy as paccmakor for t'no
Junior crow. Nickalls undoubtedly will
stand on tho final shift ho has mado -because
to make moro now would bo n bad
thing for the morale of tho oarsmen.
Among college men In this city tho
opinion prevails that Cornell has tho best
clianco to win unless they hae been
misled as to Pennsylvania's strength by
tho dally changes. It is pointed out that
tho Quakers this year havo more
physical strength and experience In tho
men at tho disposal of Nickalls than
was tho caso last year, and that, there
fore, they should row a better race.
It Is n, fact that all year tho varsity
and Junior crows havo been so evenly
matched that Coach Nickalls Himself was
never sure which would win at two
miles, but ho did believe that the varsity
would bo stronger for tho four-mile dis
tance. Tho fundamental difficulty the
crew has experienced In getting together
is that so many changes have been neces
sary In tho stroke onrs.
Tho season started with Hnrry Mnrcy,
lnst year's pacemaker. Ho was lncnpacl
tntcd by a severe cold which seized him
In tho raco with Yale, ihlch was rowed
In a blizzard. Then Herbert Shoemaker,
iv ho was the stroke last year until laid
low with typhoid fever, hnd his clianco.
Ho did not mako good due, as Coach
Nickalls explained, to a fear of tho
effects of his 1SU illness. That was tho
reason for trying Chlckerlng, n 153-pound
man, at stroke Chlckerlng did not show
enough ability for a four-mllo lace, and
Nickalls had to begin . all over again,
experimenting first wtlh Shoemaker nnd
then with Marcy.
Shoemaker Is known as a fighter and
his friends say thnt he feels keenly his
recent displacement and now is deter
mined to show thnt ho can pilot the
crow to victory. Thoso who have been
watching tho progress of tho eight feol
that if Shoemaker can set the proper
pace and bring out the full strength of
tho crew tho Quakers will stand a fair
clianco to uln.
