to fetch tho green. Just before tho green,
It might bo mentioned In passing. Is u
plseld but bottomless pond which Is some
0 yards wide.
And Keller was scratching his head over
, (lit inevitable problem that all golfers are
called upon some day to face, namely,
whether to attempt tho long shot, trying
to go across tho water onto the green, or
whether to sacrifice his dignity and phy
safely short. Ho nobly chose the lattar
and all ho had to do then was to shoot
over tho pond. And ho topped his ball
But he wati so brutal about It that thn

over the surface of tho water to the Broen

PAT MORAN, IN SINGLE SEASON,
LEAPS TO EORE AS MANAGER
Phillies' Leader Has Welded Hitherto Loose Organiza

Machines of Year, Says Critic

Resuming Willi Pat
Out or nil two pink and while bouquets
tossed here nnd there this season, Pat
Moran Is tho one man who has reccHcd
far less than his due.
No om has referred to hln: as a Mlruclo
Man, n Peerless Leader or a Napoleon.
Hut for all that Moran lias turned In
ono of the nnest little managing Jobs any
campaign has ever known Above all
eise, ho has held n club together that In
tho past was noted for a fragile morale
up agninst the test. And In nns of trial
and trlbulntlon he has held his poise and
directed his club for tho future rather
than for tho Immediate present.
Here Is one example of Moran's keen
leadership After a good start tho Phil
lies began to nulver nnd slip. 8evernl of
ills pitchers began to flutter and flounder
along the way The temptation wbb
strong al these spits to throw In Alexan
der out of turn and check the descent.
Hut Pat lipid Illc Alec out of the mcleo
and pormltled him to work onlv In his
turn No attompt was made to save the
day by overworking his star As a re
sult of this skilful management and un
usual foreolght, Moran Is now able to
faco the stretch with Alexander In prime
shnpe, rendv to glvo his bCBt
Then were several occasions when It
ioone as if the Phillies were pointed to
ward the Iwnky dell for n quick dlsap-
I penrance. Other managers around the
landscape woro picking them to break
one lade away But Moran refused to bo
stampeded Into taking any unusual risks
He hold his clan together, kept them
hustling, nnd now has a fine chance to
leap the main N. L. glory of tho year.

The Two Fnvoritcs
Ten dajs ago there weio six strong
candidates for the top. Then the Giants
and Cubs dropped back. When Cincin
nati crushed Pittsburgh nnd Philadelphia
smothered Boston, Philadelphia and
Ilrooklvn for the tlmo being assumed the
bulk of the spotlight.
These two entries must now bo con
sidered as tho Best Bets, und If they can
repulse the Western attack those next
two weeks, especially tho assaults of
Pittsburgh, they should fight out tho
championship on the road through Sep
temberand on the road Philadelphia has
traveled at a faster clip than Brooklyn.
