PHILLIES' PITCHERS VS. RED SOX-MORAN'S CLUB NEEDS ONLY FOUR MORE VICTORI

WORLD'S SERIES A PITCHERS' FIGHT,
AKD PHILLIES HAVE EVEN CHANCE
AawrWn League Dopesters Declare Red Sox Have
Better Hurling Corps and Moranmen Have But
Dim Hope, Alexander Boston Staff Youngsters
The dope again Is bolting, a$ it did a year ago,
And thirty thou land experts, who can prove then ought to know,
Are chiming In with learned lore
To show that In the coming war
The famous lied Sox hurling clan will bowl the rhltlles o'er.
That's what they said a year ago about the Btalllngi puih,
At iohlch the Braves arose and drove the Mackmen to the bush.
The Red Sox hurlcrs may be fair;
We'll e'en admit that they are there,
But all the honored experts cannot win with heated air.
And who should start to pity Pat, and mourn, upon the ground
Of Insufficient talent as to twtrlcrs hanging 'roundt
With Alex good for three or four,
And others thirsting for their gore,
The lted Sox heavU'battlno men have quite a treat In store.
American Leaguers Not Keen on Phllly Pitchers
CHw American League manager dcclnrcs that tho Phillies cannot hope to
, as they have not a strong- enough pitching staff. He says that Hoston
four pitchers who have won 70 per cent, of their games, while tho Phillies
tsj only one twlrler, Alexander, who has accomplished ns much, nnd that
re Is oly one other twlrler on tho Phllly start who can boast of a mark
ch better than .500 per cent
Even the most rabid American leaguer will admit that Alexander should
n two games If he Is In form, but none can see where tho Phillies can
ipect to win any more. It Is argued that tho four men who art" well over
he .700 mark are all sure to win from the Phillies If given a chance ugalnst
anybody but Alexander. They overlook tho dlffercnco In the standing of the
-.cams of the two leagues.
Difference in League Standings Must Be Considered
It Is only natural for the pennant winning club of a league where 390 points
parate the eight teams to have three or four men winning so many games;
'& one could hardly expect a team to have more than two twlrlers above
e .660 mark In a race where only 121 poIntH separate the eight contestants.
It W a rare occurrence for more than three pitchers to be used on the
iund by the winning team in n world's scries, and It often happens that a
cher is successful In his own league becauso ho or his catcher has a won-
irful knowledge of tho batsmen In his own league.
Alexander Has Had Experience Against American Leaguers
That rule works both ways, nnd It Is barely possible that the Red Sox
tgiit be able to bat Alexander hard, but the chances are slim, as Alexander
nit a flash In the pan, nor does he need the, powerful support that some
, this Boston pitchers have.
Alexander haB been a winner and a star ever since he broke into the
atlonal' League, and ho never was troubled by the champion Athletics In
jterleague series, which Is more than can be said for any pitcher on the
osfon staff, barring Joe Wood, and it Is no certainty that Wood will bo able
' ( pitch even a single game.
Boston Youngsters Might Blow Perhaps
Last season .everal of the young pitchers of the Athletics made unusual
records, and this 1robably hastened Mack's tearing apart of the team, as he
believed these youngsters were rlpo to take the place of the departing veterans,
but not so. It Is barely possible that this might be the case with the young
, stars of the Red Sox staff.
. It is admitted that nltchinc Is more than half the battle in the world's
La aeries, and without considering the strength of the two teams In other depart-
nenis it seems ramer rasn lor one 10
lstlnct advantage in pitching because

LEDGER MOVEES-THERE'S A RIGHT ARM
GEDNEY FARM MEN
TO PROMOTE POLO
Indian Game to Be Popularized
as at Meadow Brook Club.
I More Players In
terested AMERICAN GAME DIFFERS
A step that will go a long way toward
popularizing polo has been taken by tho
Gcdney Farm Country Club, whose polo
playing members met and decided to re
build the field adjoining the Gedney Farm
Hotel to conform to the requirements
of the game as It Is played In India,
the land of its origin.
The Indian game of polo, which was
carried around the world by British army
officers, who learned It in the Orient,
will be played at Gedney Farm hereafter
Instead of the American adaptation of
polo which prevails everywhere else In
this country except at Meadow Brook,
where the Indian game has been played
for three seasons.
The difference between tho original
game of polo as It Is played In India and
Europe and that played In America Is In
the dimensions of the Held and the ar
rangement of tho periods or "chuckers."
Tho standard. American polo ground Is 900
feet long and 430 feet wide. The Indian
Meld Is tho same length, but 30 feet nar
rower, a restriction which calls for bet
ter horsemanship and more skilful play
ing. The American game Is played In eight
periods of seven and one-half minutes
each, with a rest of seven minutes after
tho fourth "chucker." This makes It an
exceedingly fast performance for the
ponies and necessitates the maintenance
of a stable of from four to seven or eight
mounts by each player. Many polo players
In this country maintain that at least
seven ponies are required If the player
has any consideration for his horses at
all. The Indian game, however, is played
In seven "chuckers" of six and one-half
minutes each, with a 10-mtnute Interval
after tho fourth period. Under these con
ditions many British officers in India play
through tho season with only two ponies.
In a climate that Is much more trying
on the mounts than even the summer
climate of the United States.

Manager of Athletics De
clares Moran Has
STRAIN ON CONTENDERS
"Don't worry about ttie Phillies crack
ing. They will not crack, and there
never was a chance of them cracking
after the series with the Giants." This
Is what Manager Mack, of the Athletics,
thinks of the dope that Is being handed
out thnt the Phillies are likely to crack
before, the world's series.
"The New York series was the critical
point In the race for the Phillies, I
think," continued Mack. "After they
get back two of the three games they
lost Jn Brooklyn I was certain they would
win the pennant, because the strain Im
mediately changed owners.
"Wncn a team can go Into the last
month of the race with a three or four
game lead 1 have always found that the
strain Is on the teams that are trying tp
come from behind. It does not matter
whether It has been making the pace for
the entire season when t'ne race reaches
that ntage. The possession of the lend
Is half tho battle in the last month of
"It Is a difficult thing for any man or
body of men to keep their confidence and
fighting spirit at the proper .pitch when
t'nere Is a team Just ahead that refuses to
lose. The Phillies showed In the New
York series that their nerve was not
gone, and with great pitchers, there was
no chance for the rest of the team to
crack after that.
"Just try coming from behind In any
thing, and you will see how hard It Is
when there Is only a certain length of
time left The Rraves came from behind,
but they were chasing a team that was
slipping fast, and even at that I doubt
very much If tho Braves would have
passed the Giants If McQraw had been
able to keep his tenm in front until the
middle of September.
"A club that Is pursuing another In tho
final stretch of a pennant race Is under
a greater strain than the leader, because
tin mm liavo more to think about and
they Invariably worry more. Tho leader
Is thinking only of the game at hand and
knows that the loss of ono game does
not mean so much to horn as It does to
the team that Is trying to pick up a game
"With but few exceptions I have not
seen a really good ball team overhauled
this late In the) race, nor have I seen a
teum crack before the world's series be
cause of tho hard race. The team or
teams that are after the leaders In
variably give up suddenly. As they see
the season drawing to a 'close with the
leader playing with great consistency,
they get the Idea that the leader will
never lose nnd finally say: 'What's the
use, they won't stop,"
"Teams In this position also have the
tendency to 'crab' top much because the
other teams are not coming to their aid,
and that hurts them. I know the Phillies
have a good ball team, and good ball
teams do not crack In a pinch, particu
larly when they have great pitching.
"The strain Is on the Braves and
Dodgers and has been for some time,
and they are likely to give up the chaso
any day now. That forlorn hope of the
last two series Is fine to figure on paper,
but when those series come I think you
will find that the Phillies will more than
hold their end up. It Is a fine team and
has been handled In a wonderful manner,
Of course I have not been able to ses
them, but I follow them pretty closely
nevertheless and know what they are
"About tho world's serlesT Well, I pre
fer not to talk about that, t am an
American Leaguer, a manager and a
magnate, and that naturally counts some;
but I want to say also that I am a
Phlladelpblan. I havo been for IS years
and always expect to be a Phlladelphtan,
and I want to see the city get everything
it can. The Phillies are a great team
and they are playing a great team. If
they win the -lty should be proud of a
good, clean club that Is a credK to the
game, and I'll tell you that Connie Mack
will' be proud pf them too,"

TRIUMPHS IN FINAL
OVER MRS. C.F.F0i
National Golf Champion Scores
3 Up and 1 to Play in Ber-
thellyn Cup Test at
MATCH WELL CONTESTED
NOBLE, Pa., Sept. 25. Mrs. Clarence H.
Vanderbeck did what was expected of
her and defeated Mrs. Caleb F. Pox In
the final round of the Berthellyn Cup at
the Huntingdon Valley Country Club to
day, 3 up and 1 to play.
It was by no means a runaway affair
for Mrs. Vanderbeck and she had to play
her very best golf In order to win. Mrs.
Fox also played very fine golf, and tlmo
and time again out-drove her opponent.
She Hi raw away very few chances, and,
seeing that Mrs. Vanderbeck was out in
44 and home In 43, It would havo taken
miraculous golf to beat her.
The national champion won the first
hole when, after both had sliced their
drives, Mrs. Fox took three to get on
the green as against two. Two putts each
gave Mrs. Vanderbeck tho hole, 4 to 6.
The second and third holes were halved
In sixes. On the fourth hole Mrs. Van
derbeck missed her third shot and went
Into tho bunker and the hole cost her a
6 to a 6. Tho fifth was halved in three,
both driving tho green. Both drovo
Into tho bunker on the sixth, but Mrs.
Fox had a very awkward He and It cost
her two strokes. Mrs. Vanderbeck was
well out and won with a 6 to a 7.
Both got sixes on tho seventh hole, and
on the eighth Mrs. Fox missed her third
shot and was short with her fourth.
Mrs Vanderbeck was well on In thtco
and down In five to seven. With the
ninth halved In fives Mrs. Vanderbeck
was two up at tho turn. Mrs. Vander
beck played a good shot out of the sand
on the third and secured a half In three.
On the 10th hola Mrs. Fox drove Into the
creek with her second and lost her ball,
and this pleco of bad luck cost her the
hole, six to five. On the 12th, Mrs. Fox
lost a grand chanco for a win by missing
a putt for a three, but on the 13th sho
did better and won, with a five to a six,
when her opponent put her third In the
ditch. Tho 14th was halved In fours, and
on the 15th Mrs. Fox put her second In
the creek and lost the hole, six to four.
Both were on the green In four on the
16th, but Mrs. Vanderbeck lost by taking
three putts to two.- Mrs. Fox drove Into
the rough on tho 17th and failed to get
out with her second. Sho was In tho pit
with her third and only Just out with her
fourth. Mrs. Vanderbeck was on In three
nnd down In two more, giving her the
hole and match.

"The Phillies," advises a well-known

How It Works Out
So, of the eleven world series games
Played, four were figured as oven propo
sitions before the first blow was struck.
Of the other seven games, where thrro
was pronounced advance evidence in fa
vor of one club, tho favorite came through
tidily on three occasions and was beaten
Which means that while the unaerdoga
haven't been consistent winners, thy
havo moro than held their won having
operated four upsets out of seven chances.
Red Sox Favorites
In 'this next series the Red Sox un
doubtedly will be slight favorites. They
will be favorites because with their out
field and Infield combination on defense,
plus their pitching, they look to havo
greater defensive strength. And because
they havo a harder hitting club.
But where this margin, club for club,
might be strongly In Boston's favor. It
will be pruned down by tho supercxccl
lence of ono great pitcher Alexander.
Those supporting the Phillies will do so
largely In the belief that Alexander can
do In Jfl5 what Mathewson did in 1905
win thrco games; and that Demareo Chal
mers or another Phllly pitcher can at
tach tho fourth. Or they are figuring
that Big Alec of tho side-arm sweep will
bag at least two games and that his pals
will nail two more oUt of their four or
five starts, bolstered up by the slugging
of CraVath and Luderus. They, will be
playing two pr three men against an
entire club In tho knowledge that two or
three sturs before have been sufficient to
spin a dizzy upset In a short thatch of
from four to seven games. But thoy will

colt. The Finn, which he purchased from
John E. Madden, displayed such form as
to warrant his being selected as one of
the colts, .If not the colt, of the year,
and by his manner of winning the Man
hattan Handicap, In which he was giving
weight to everything, ho Is about to finish
the year with many partisans who will
assert that he Is the best of his age.
Recently The Finn started In the Jerome
Handicap, at one mile, and was beaten
by the proverbial eyelash by Trial by
Jury, which appeared to havo the better
at the racing luck, this being aided by an
unwitting mlstako by Davles, the Jockey,
when he took The Finn back Just before
getting to tho stretch. Following this,
nnd after ho had been several lengths out
of It. The Finn came with wet sail and
Just failed In getting up.
Many criticised Davles' ride, for which
he was not blamed by the trainer of the
horse, E. W. Heffner, who vlqwed It us
