Ho Did It Learned to Play
, Baseball, Says Fitch-burgers
UkST! - i : (OUCH!)
'"MATTY" PRAISES "ALEX"
From the Chlcaro Evening roat.
Textllo workeri of ritchburg, Maid
havo unearthed on old bali of yarn, bat
tered, ragged and torn In so many placed
It U almost unrecognizable. They ate
having this relle of a score of years ago
glided with 18-carat gold. For a native
eon, of Fltchburg has achieved great
ness, and this hall of yarn, say Fitch
burgers, started the native son on h's
Journey to fame.
The hero of, Fltchburg Is Patrick J.
Moran. There havo been other heroes of
Fltchburg, Governors, Senators and the
,lke, but none like Patrick J., who has
led the Philadelphia National League
club out of the ashes of 33 years of burlod
"hopes Into the light of 1915 laurels.
The sagacious, stern, serlous-mlndcd,
refreshingly modest, wonderfully modern
commander of the Phillies may not re
member the ball of yarn which he tossed
about while still In his teens, but un
doubtedly this plaything paved the way
for the development of his baseball
acumen, which has placed him to the
fore as a leader of men.
Moran has always been a leader. It
was he who made the ball of yarn which
first Interested the youngsters of Fltch
burg. It was ho wh,o organized the first
"kid" nine of the same town, and It was
he" who collected enough nickels to sub
stitute a horsehldo-covered, regulation
ball for the yam plaything.
Mathewson, In New York American.
"Did I feel the strnln In tho 1905 world's
series?" queried Chrlstv Mathewson.
"Why. I was a young fellow theri.
"Physical strain, your grandmotherl Twen-ty-flve
years old and feeling a physical

In those days I thought I could pitch

"Alexander Is only a llttlo older now
than I was then, nnd he Is fully as
strong as I was. Moreover, ho Is In the
very flower of hli usefulness; he Is pitch
ing the best ball of his career right now.
It Is his first world's scries, nnd he ought
to have all that early enthusiasm that
fires a fellow under such circumstances.
That's why I say I think he can pitch
three games without dltllculty.
"Ho Is a grand pitcher, Alexander,"
mused Matty. "About as good as I've
.ever seen. I don't think there's the
slightest doubt of him meeting the big
test successfully. I only hopo the Phils
can get him a few runs early In that
"The Red Sox must have a grand crow
of pitchers. I've been watching their
scores, and I notice that tho opposition
makes few hits off Carrlgan's pitchers,
and a pitcher has to be pretty good to
be constantly keeping the base hits down.
"In my first world's series game I de
pended largely on my fast ball. J had a
good one then, I'm told. After that I
used plenty of curves. Alexander Is a
great fast-ball pitcher, but then he has
an unusually good assortment of curves.
He has that old round-house boy, and
then he has another wrinkle that breaks
very sharp. He pitches with good con
trol and with excellent judgment, and If
tho Sox beat him they beat a real pitcher.
"The Sox have a batch of dangerous
left-handed hitters, but Alex is pretty ef
fective against left handers. His game in
Boston Wednesday, when he carried his
club through to tho pennant, shows that
he Is In wonderful physical condition and
that he has suffered no loss of effective
ness during the last stages of the cam
paign." from the FHUbursh Leader.
Manager Fred Clarke, of the Pitts
burgh Pirates, had this to say of the
world's series games today:
"In a short series tho pitching is the
keystone of both offense and defense,
and one man can generally pull his team
through If ho Is In form. Alexander, to
my mind, is by far the best pitcher in
the country today, and If Pat Moran can
afford to rest htm up for a week before
the series begins without letting him get
ctale, he will come across with a victory
every other day. I believe Mayer will
bother tho Red Sox. Although I am not
In a position to say much about the
American League champlpns, I believe
that Ludorus and Cravath will bat as
well as Speaker, Hooper and Lewis, and
Moran's pitchers will measure up with

CORRECT BACK SWING IN GOLF
ATTAINED THROUGH HAND PLAY
Principal Element Is Distance Hands Are Carried Back
From the Line of Action, Says John
Albert Scott, Expert.
By JOHN ALBERT SCOTT
The previous article prepared you for
the limits within which the hands worked.
The first limit which will be considered
nnd It Is the principal element of a cor
rect back swing Is the distance the hands
are carried back from the lino of play
I. e., the distance they will travel from a
line across the feet (seo tho stance pho
tographs In previous articles) toward a
line which runs parallel to It, and drawn
back ot tho player's heels. By referring
to the stance photographs used to Illus
trate tho articles on tho stance, It will be
seen and can bo easily verified by trying
It, that a plumb line, dropped from the
"heel", of the left hand will strike the
ground very slightly In front of tho line

Left arm practically ttraigM, left knee
turned in toward the right
across tho feet, about an Inch, as a mat
ter of fact (This line will be referred to
as the "line of flight" or "the line across
the feet," both phrases meaning tho same
The "heel" of the left hand has been
selected, aa It la the pivot point ot the
hands; it Is tho point around which the
hands turn In going to the top of the
back swing, and again in coming down to
the ball. On each of the photographs
showing the point at which the plumb
line would strike the ground has been
drawn, and In each Instance It comes In
side a line drawn back of the right heel,
parallel to the line of flight. The point
at which this line would strike the ground
has been most carefully determined, and
when I once had noticed this important
detail I carefully observed the position
of all the famous players and found they
were In perfect accord In this element ot
the stroke, as they are. In fact In all

the really vital things of tho stroke.
The height to which tho hands are
carled Is a matter of Importance, to bo
considered later, but It will bo sufficient
to say at this time that tho height to
which tho players selected for Illustration
hnve cnrrled their hands Is correct for
those of similar build.
A careful study of tho photograph,
stance and top of swing, will Indicate
how tho hands assume the position they
arc In at the top of the swing. In all tho
articles I have ever read, in books or
magazines. In talks with professional golf
instructors, It haB always been stated
that the "hands are carried around tho
body." Somo advocate one method and
some another, but all agreo that the
hands ore carried around the body, by
and of themselves; that the hands lcavo
the direct back line from tho ball and are
carried, or swung, around the body In a
circular motion, by their own movement.
This agreement Is not tho result ot
analysis, but rather the description of a
sensation bodily action will ofton create
a feeling that we aro doing a particular
thing In a way quite different from our
actual motions, hence the danger of de
scribing a stato of mind, so far as value
to the one to whom wo try to Impart
Analysis has to do with causo and ef
fect. There Is no attempt to describe
feelings. I fully agree that the sensation
Is that the hands are being swung around
In a circular motion, but It will be seen
that they aro not (as I have analyzed the
stroke), by any Independent motion of
Thero nre tartars a-plenty In tho world,

almost went to the mat on tho 16th, but
Fownes missed the shortest ot putts. And
then the latter put a second shot up to
tho pin on tho 19th for tho win.
The cold rains came, and the Icy blasts
how they did numb the golfers' fingers
and stiffen the elbows. Strango to tell,
the bye holes vere holes not played. In
fact, there was somewhat of a merry
scramble for tho roaring lira in the club
house and the great bowls of hot soup
Oulmet hud everything to win in the
match after his licking this season, but
he showed his true-blue nature at the
end when he put his ball in the pit, and
when he realized he had hit his "out"
too hard he conceded tho putt which lost
him the match,
"I'm glad UIU won," ho said. "I de
served to lose because I was sloppy with
my Irons and putts. Thero was no hard
luck on my sldo. I was lucky to be able
to carry the match as far as I did."

New Yorkers in Lesley Cup
Series Win Four of Five
SINGLES PLAYED LATER
HAVERFORD, Pa., Oct. 2. Pennsylva
nia got a bad start against New York
In the final for the Lesley cup matches
by losing four of tho five foursome
matches. With a llttlo luck the score
should havo been 3 to 2, and In the end
this may spell all tho difference between
victory and defeat.
The gallery, and there was quite a big
one, considering the unsettled condition
of tho wenther, naturally followed tho
match between Jerome Travers and Os
wald Klrkby and V. C. Fownes, Jr., and
Davidson Hcrron. They were well re
warded for their trouble, for the match
was a good one, Travers and Klrkby win
ning only 2 up and 1 to play. -
Both palis started out poorly, Travers
and his partner winning tho first hole
with n rtvo to a six and tho second with
a six to a seven On tho third, Travers
and his partner got Into trouble and took
a six to n four. After half In five on
tho fourth, Travers and Klrkby took the
fifth with a well-played flvo to a six.
Klrkby drove Into the creek on the sixth
hole and Travers dropped back for the
loss of a stroke nnd failed to reach the
green and the Metropolitan pair finished
up with a six to the flvo of their oppo
nents. Fownes nnd Horron wero on the
green In ono on the seventh to tho two
of their opponents and won tho hole
with a three to a four.
The eighth was halved In par fours.
Fownes drove to the right In the mounds
on the ninth and Herron put his second
well up to the hole and Fowncs missed
a putt for a three. Travers drove the
green and his partner gave him none too
easy a putt for a three, but ho made It.
Both played better golf coming In. Tho
10th and 11th holos wero halved In par
fours, and the 12th in par fives, after
both had been short with their seconds.
Both missed putts for threes on the
15th, Fownes having a grand chance for
a win. Travers nnd his partner won the
14th hole, 5 to 6, Fowncs putting tho sec
ond shot Into the bunkers and Herron
going over the green with the third.
Travors put tho second shot on the
sixteenth in the side of the bunker and
it lost them tho hole. Both were to the
left of the green on tho seventeenth, but
Klrby made a tlno approach and Travers
holed for a threo to a four and ended tho

Dcmareo has fine control and a great head, and for this reason Is a par
ticularly good man in an Important series. His work for Moran is one ot the
real surprises of tho season, as it was generally believed that he was goteg
back when McGraw allowed him to get away.

any better prophet, but ho proved to be
a far keener newspaper man than other
managers ome years ago when ho came
out and picked the Giants to beat the
Athletics. That pick started something.
There was color to It, It left the routine
seven leagues behind. Our Idea of nothing
to till over Is the announcement that a
National League manager picks the Phil
lies or an American League manager
picks the Red Sox to win.
At best It Is all a guess. Tho only man
who looked to be too earnest to be guess
ing was George Btalllngs a year ago.
when ho Insisted that hla Braves would
win four straight games.
And just at this stage last season Honk
Gowdy was batting .210. Ho wasn't fig
ured within 27 lengths of Wally Schong.
The comparison was a pitiful thing so
far as Lank Hank waa concerned.
But at the end of four days' fighting
Gowdy not only outbatted Bchang, but
had smashed the ball for a greater total
ot bases than Baker, Collins and Mc
Innls put together.
Schang, on the season, was a far better
batter than Gowdy. But In that one ser
ies Hank hit for 14 bases and Schang hit
Still More Dope
To which one might attach another seg
ment of the Eternal Dope. In previous
world series games Jack Barry had been
always rated as one of the timeliest of
Mack's batsmen. Jack was generally good
for about .210 In a season and for .850 in
a big series.
Last fall, against the Braves, Jack went
to bat Is times and accumulated one hit,
for an average of .067. It's a great life
