For even in the grand old game they come to know satiety.
Lett year wot something cite again, the Mackt are In the cellar now,
And Fat Moron, who Uadt the Phils, Is evenwhere the feller note.
Tte-TMUhw abated the gonfalon for thrce-and-thlrty seasons now,

Defeating so-called "better teams," all opposition scattering;
Seeausa thev get the; victories when Pat announced "We're needing them":
Xeeause an& don't forget It, fan P. J. Moran was leading them.
, The Splrltof Frank Selce Still LItcb
Xleven years, ago Frank Belee, who had vron pennants so often in Boston
. tat ths fans sot tired looking at tho Lowo-Long-Duffy-McCarthy-Tucker-BaiiB-Nach-aanzel
combination, constructed, a toam In Chicago, that afterward
iras turned over to Frank Chance. This team was known as tho "Peerless Cub"
machine and It swept everything beforo It until the Mackmcn crushed It In 1910.
m 1M6 this team won 118 games, tho largest number over captured by a major
league pennant winner. But It went down to defeat at the hands of tho White
Bex In the world's series. That victory of the Whito Box was admittedly a nuko,
and thereafter the-Cuba reigned supremo until tho Athletics beat them.
j A- Manager Who Always Looked Ahead
Seles, who tmllt that team, was tho greatest percentage manager who ever
handled a major league team. Ho was always looking ahead, and played the
game according to percentago at all times. Fat Moran was at that time playing
with Boston, and he had heard so much about the Soleo percentage system that
he became interested in It. After watching Seleo's work Moran became con
vinced .that tho Cub leader had the proper system.
'When 'he Joined the Phillies as o, player aftor being with the Cubs for
two years, Moran was always willing and anxious to talk about the percentage
system of working the pitchers. He often declared that the pennant In 1913
would have been won had this system boen used when the team was In the
( lead and had Alexander, Beaton, Mayer, Itlxey, Chalmers, Brennan and Moore
a; for a. pitching staff. That staff surpassed tho present pitching corps of the
; Phillies. But the pennant was lost because tho pitchers could not hold up
'; their end.
'ilj. . .
i- Moron's Hope in the Spring Was to Finish in First Division
if ' Shortly after Moran was appointed manager of tho Phillies he told the
i Kvbnino Xxsoeb representative that while his team did not look great, ho
thought It bad a chance to finish up In the raco if his pitchers kept free from
iff accident. At tho time ho explained Just how he Intended to play percentage
.' with Alexander and Mayor, two twirlcrs who should win at least 60 per cent.
i . t their games, with an oven break of luck.
; 1 Hew the Phllly Leader Figured on Ills Pitchers
'!' , Moran figured that two pitchers winning 60 per cent, of their games, It
' i iHiftnlil "rjnlT T-t Yitfflfmnrr to havo two more twirlers who could get an even
break working regularly, and the Phillies would finish well over tho i600 mark,
whleh would enable the team to finish In the first division. This was tho real
,' aim o the Phllly leader when ho took the position.
When the season opened Moran realized that the Braves were not going
to be so strong as was expected and that the Giants had gone to smash.
Tfces after getting a wonderful lead by winning the first nine games, Moran
waMced that he had a chance for tho pennant if his pitching staff held up.
The Problem of the Trump Card, Alexander
Moran was always known as a great developer of pitchers. He knew
when his men were right and that Is why the Phillies have been favored by
remarkable twirling. He worked his pitchers better than any other leader
the game has known in years and really outclassed Selee, tho originator of
the percentage system. Alexander has been sent to the mound as often as
possible and yet has not been overworked.
Whenever' the weather Interfered for a day or two Moran Immediately
eat Alexander back to the mound It it so happened that he had pitched the
day before the rain. In this way Moran continually side-tracked other pitchers
to get the full benefit of Alexander's wonderful ability. Other pitchers havo
keen worked accordingly.
Where the Pitchers'
rae might be successful against a certain team and' unable to stop an
other. Instead of sending pitchers Into the game against teams which had
always beaten hte), Moran switched his pitchers and sent the man In who
hast shown best against that particular team.
Other saanagers, follow the old cutand-drled policy of getting four pitchers
werklBg well and using them In regular
away from that method and figured
ienumerable games have been won that
Tie percentage system was used
were taken on certain fielding
i the plays failed to work, and It looked like poor managerial work, but when
tW move turned out right the result was startling. And Moran never used a
ptajr of any sort that he did not have carefully mapped out, with the percentage
t sueoess or failure carefully figured.

BIG SIXS ELEVEN
IN THEIR INITIAL
Penn Meets West Virginia,
Yale Plays Georgetown,
Harvard vs. Colby
LINE-UP FOR QUAKERS
There are many uneasy coaches all
over tho East awaiting the outcome of
the football games t'nelr teams are sched
uled to play tomorrow. Although four
Stato teams played their lint games last
Saturday, ttvo members of the "Dig SlxV
and a host of minor colleges got their
first taste of real gridiron warfare to
morrow. Of tho "Big Six" the University of
Pennsylvania plays West Virginia,
Princeton plays Georgetown. Yale tackles
Maine, Harvard lines up against Colby
and Dartmouth starts with the Massa
chusetts Aggies. Cornell's opening has
been delayed until Tuesday, when Gettys
burg will try out the Ithacans.
Locally, of course chief Interest will
centre in Pennsylvania's opening game
with West Virginia. The coaches do not
know how strong their own team is, and
they know less about the strength of tho
Southerners. The fact Is that the Qua
ker coaching staff is not so much con
cerned over how strong West Virginia will
be as how the many new men in their
own line-up will stand up against a strong
It Is almost certain that every mem
ber of tho Pennsylvania backflcld will
wear tho Rod and BIuo for the flrst time.
There may be three veterans' In the line,
with two more men who last year played
In tho backflcld, but who this year are oc
cupying positions on the forward line.
At best there will be only five veterans
In the flrst Une-up and possibly only three.
And even this number is likely to be re
duced to ono before the game Is long
The necessity of deperfdihg upon so
many new men constitutes the real men
ace of the Pennsylvania team. Bev
eral of them are touted, as wonders. Pos
sibly they will develop well, but it is
pretty hard to get good-'team work out
of a lot of green men, no matter how
brilliant they are individually.'
The flrst choice for Quarterback will be
either Bell or Grant, who alternated In
this position on last year's freshman
team. Bell has had flrst call all week,
but largely because he was with the
varsity at Port Deposit most of the time.
Grant, who has been doing a lot of BCholas
tlo work to get off some conditions. Is
picked to beat Bell out before long. Mur
dock, who played quarterback part of
last year, would probably start In this
osltlon but for a slight Injury. .
Howard Berry has been selected for the
ttllback position. Here he will do the
kicking and will probably be the mainstay
In the attack. His work will be watched
with tho greatest Interest to see whether
he plays as brilliantly In a scheduled
game as he does against the scrubs. Will
iams will not be able to start at halfback
on account of a slight Injury and Dough
erty will probably take his place, with
P.oss or Welsh the other ihalfback.
Tno line promises to be Urquhart and
l Hopkins at ends, Harris and Matthews
at -ta$l,' Henning and Nelll at guards
and Wray at centre. At the beginning of
tne season tho coaches were worried sick
over the line prospects, but the forwards
have been developing better than the
No one knows the strength of West
Virginia, whose team is a new opponent.
It Is coached by Bo! Metsger, captain and
end on the 1903 team and head coach here
In 1908. Metzger is reported to have built
up a good team and one stronger than
the Quakers usually have for the opening
Of all the other big Eastern teams a
lot of attention will be focused on Is
Princeton, where a new man, "Speedy"
John Bush, Is trying to put the Tigers
on a winning basis. Princeton meets
Georgetown and If the two teams are the
average in strength the Tigers ought to
win without difficulty.
The laot that Rush was not a football
player himself when at Princeton and
that this Is his first year as a college
coach has aroused a great deal of specu
lation as to the success of his methods.
Tale has a big bunch of veterans with
which to tackle Maine. Two years ago
Maine held Tale to a 0-0 score In the
early part of the season, but last year
the mils won easily by a score of 20-0.
Tale ought to win tomorrow without
much difficulty. Coach Frank Hlnkey
has been working with a big squad of
men for three weeks at Madison, Conn.,
so that the team should be pretty well
advanced by this time.
As for Harvard, the Colby team does
not look threatening even with the Crim
son team lacking half of last year's vet
erans. Harvard, like Tale, has had three
weeks of preliminary practice, and any
thing that Colby does will not be on ac
count of Jack of condition by Harvard.
Of all the big teams, Dartmouth has
had 'the advantage of the most prelimin

It might be admitted oft hand, via tho
eternal dope, that the Phillies haven't a
chance with the Red Box. It might oe
admitted that they haven't a chance to
beat a ball club that beat tho Tigers U
out of 22 games,
But then the Phillies never had a chance
to win tho pennant. And the Braves
never had a chance to beat the Mackmcn
last fall. And Wlllard never had a chance
to beat Jphnson. And Btandlsh nover had
a chanco to beat Oulmet And Johnson
never had an outside chance to beat Behr,

the ones who have done the bulk of the

There seems to bo a well-defined ad

of fame for at least tv years.
How many experts bJlieved at this date
last season the Braves could win two
games out of six from the Mackmen
much less four out of four? Not one In

"hasn't got a chance" Is more than mak

"The biff slump taken this season by

writer, who Is evidently entitled to an

open golf champion of America. The
slump he has taken Is a goed bit UkeMho
terrific slump that has assailed tho Red

The fact that Travers failed to win

hardy to be ranked as any slump, In
view of the fact that no golfer has ever
turned this double trick In America and
only two have ever done so In England.

Boston may play capital ball away from

that It always has seemed mighty peculiar
to me that some basoball aggregations

But, as I said before, I am sure trial
there Is nothing more than a mental con.

On the other hand, I must admit Ui&V
traveling In the West In midsummer (even'
In September this year) Is likely to upset
a man physically and mentally, Thos
of you who have been In St Louis. Chi
cago and Cincinnati when the thermomv,
eter was above 10 degrees, will know,
what I mean. But even then If a player.
takes good care of himself and conserve:
all his strength for the two or three houn
ne must spend In the sun at the ball park.
he will be able to play ball just as well
as the men who must live In these western
cities while their clubs aro at home.
My only hope Just now la that we will
provo a much better road club than sotae
persons, think we are.
