J t IWlffi fPH 14 EVENING LEDGER-PHILADELPHIA", THURSDAY FEBRtJARY 10, 1916, PHILLIES TO HAVE BIG STRUGGLE TO KEEP PACE WITH GIANTS AND CUBS, SAYS MORAN . . - - - - -. . PHILLIES MUST IMPROVE TO REPEAT 1915 VICTORY, SAYS MANAGER MORAN Development of Greater Strength From Second string Players Is Job on Leader's Hands to Put Team in Running "T MtJST cither Improve tho team or develop greater strength from my see J. ond-strlng material to bo In the running noxt season," said Manager I'at Moran Irf' discussing tho outlook for the coming season with tho Hviinmno LCDor.n representative at tho National I.enguo meeting. "As wo stand now, wo will havo a terrlllo strugglo to keep paeo with tho (Hants and Cuba If those teams look as good on tho field as they do on paper. Hoth clubs have strength ened al least 60 per cent., whllo wo apparently arc In Just about the same posl- B Ion In which wo finished tho season. hi "Looking at It In that light. It would seem that we havo little chanco to repeat In the National Lcaguo race; but tho dope frequently goes wrong. Threo teams look better than wo do at tho present time, but wo might fool them again. Wo havo had a lot of hard luck this winter In our bids for players and n'ero crossed In our attempt to get Gideon. Perhaps Gideon would not have mado good, but I was willing to take a chanco on him on tho recommendation of Eddie Burns. I thought wo had rtousch, tho brilliant young outfielder of the Newark federal Lcuguo club, until I read in tho paper Inst night that ho had been purchaso'd by tho Giants. This youngster would surely havo helped mo, becauso ho Is a great all-round player. "Two other Federal Leaguers were almost In our net, but somo other club beat ua to them. I havo my eye on a Federal League pitcher who has nover been highly rated, but who Is going to be a mighty good pitcher, and I think wo will get him. I am always willing to tako a chanco on a pitcher who shows the slightest ability If he Is ambitions, and somo day I will find a star, Moran Believes Dcvorc, Good and Adams Arc Profitable Gamble "Why am I getting so many outfielders? Well, tho only nnswer I can give to that Is thut It is a good business proposition to pick up a lot of players at tho waiver price of $1500 at the present time. Any one of them may lit In per fectly with my plans and will moro than pay for all others who fall to strengthen my team. "If I wero to have allowed Good nnd Adams to go to a minor league club and then started looking for nn outfielder and pitcher In tho fall I probably would discover that both arc valued at $5000 or more, so you can sco that It Is a good gamble. We can got about $1000 for each If wo cannot use them, or procure an option on some promising youngster. "Dovore's caso Is somewhat different, but wo aro getting him for nothing. None of tho trio Is carrying a heavy, long-term contract. With a curve ball Adams is certain to develop Into a good pitcher, whllo I expect cither Devore or Good, and perhaps both, to show enough to warrant carrying for the entire season. Cravath Cannot Last Forever "You can never tell when you are going to need a capablo man. Becker fell off last year at the close of the season, while It Is certain that Cravath and Paskert will not get any better, as they havo passed tho stage where thoy aro coming, and Gavvy's lega have been troubling him more or less. "I am In a position where I must develop my reservo strength. Last year -was my first year as a manager. I took a bunch South who had never played together, somo of whom 1 did not really feel sure I know, and I was forced to find tho best combination In a hurry. After finding It I had to perfect team play and Instil fighting spirit. The race was too close for me to take nny chances on my youngsters or to givo thcmmuch of my time In practice. There fore theydld not show signs of developing as fast as they would have under ordinary conditions. "This spring I feel certain that this reserve strength and young blood must come through If I am to be In tho race. I know what my regulars can and cannot do, so now I can give tho youngsters all my time. Stock played great ball last season; so did Eddie Burns, but tho work of both will bo better this season becauso I can eradicate faults this spring, whereas I did not dare last year. Moran Thinks Killcfer's Arm Wall Be O. K. "If Killcfer's arm Is really gone It will be an awful blow. Ho Is without doubt the best catcher in our Icaguo and, I think, better than any man in the game. One docs not appreciate, Killcfer's value until they play with him. Wo can't spare' him, and to tell you tho truth I don't think there is any danger of losing him. "It would only be natural for him to bo slow rounding into form after his accident, but he Is too young to havo an Injury llko that trouble him long. They told mo I threw my arm out In 1905, but I was still pegging them as good as ever until 1911. You can bank on Klllefcr to bo In prime condition by mldseason. "Pitching played an Important part In our success last season, and 1 think wo will be better oft this year. Alexander's arm Is In great shape again, Chalmers, Mayer and Rlxey are sure to be better, while McQulllen, Dcmareo nnd the recruits will round out a pretty fair staff, particularly if I land tho pitcher I am after. "Wo won't be tho favorite, and I am not making any predictions, but you can bet we will hustle from start to finish nnd give them all a hard fight." Herzog Only Playing Manager in Majors A few years ago there seemed to bh a craze for playing managers In major league baseball clubs. The teams that had managers who sat on tho bench and did not play regularly could be counted on tho fingers of one hand. Now a glanco at the field that will start this season discloses tho most remarkable change In affairs. There are but two actual playing managers In tho two major leagues, and one of these has announced that ho Is through as a player and will hereafter merely manage. In tho National League, Buck Herzog will be the lone playing- manager. Boston has Stalling!), Brooklyn has Robinson, New York, McGraw, and tho Phillies, Pat Moran; all out of active service. Jimmy Callahan In Pittsburgh, Joe Tinker In Chicago and Miller Hugglns in St. Louis, also are scheduled for the bench this year. Both Tinker and Hugglns have announced that while they may fill In occasionally If called upon for relief; they will not be regulars this season. Bill Carrlgan Is the only American Leaguer who approaches the definition of a playing manager, and last week he announced that he would not catch this year unless It was Imperatively necessary in caso of accidents to his regular catchers. BII Donovan Is to manage the Yankees from the bench, as will Clarke Griffith In Washington, and of course, Connlo Mack will, as usual, occupy his little perch in the corner of the bench. The western clubs of the American League also have only bench managers, among them being Rowland in Chicago, Jones In St. Louis, Friel in Cleveland and Jennings In Detroit Just how long this condition will last Is an unknown quantity, but the fact remains that Buck Heraoff occupies the unique position of being: tho only playing manager among the IS major league leaders. Originally the preponderance of major league managers were catchers, but this condition does not exist Just now. Six of the 16 aro former Inflelders, 5 catchers, 3 pitchers and 2 outfielders. However, the managers of the cham pion team In the two major leagues In the past two years were catchers, they being Mack and Stalllngs In 1914 and Carrigan and Moran In 1915. McGuigan Good Referee for Willard-Moran Bout Philadelphia wll be represented in the 10-round match between Jess Wlllard and Frank Moran In New York, March 8, If Tom Jones and Ike Dorgan approve of Promoter Tex Rlckard's suggestion to have Jack McGuigan, of this city, reicree xne maicn. is me respective managers are at loggerheads over tho third-man question, it ls probable they will agree to have McGuigan officiate, ones, demanded that Jack Skelly be selected for the Job while Dorgan wanted Bill Brown. Since McGuigan has been In the boxing game he has refereed quite a number of Important matches, out of town as well as in this city, It Is prob able, that the Phlladelphlan will be decided upon unless one or the other of the managers gives in. McGulgan's ability as a referee is well known throughout the country, Tjie- last big- match he officiated In was between Mike Gibbons and Young Ahearn In St. Paul several weeks ago in which the Phlladelphlan counted the "fatal ten" over the Brooklyntte in the first round.

Eb bots is the. proudest man In baseball at tho closing session of the National Lcaguo todny. Ills revision to the drafting rules was considered favorably and was re ferred to tho American League and the minor leagues. Tho reference was aecom punlcd by n hearty recommendation bv Governor John Klnlcy Tenor, nnd Kbbots believes that formal adoption of tho scheme Is only a question of time. So he will wait with bated breath until the w Itching hour nrrlves, ICbbots, as has boon told, favors n re form In tho present system of drafting which will give the second division clubs tho preference In selecting any plaers named by any of the other clubs. Tho nominations will bo limited nnd will pro vent nny jockeying. In urging the adop tion of the plan, Mr. nbbets said RrunUllo qtiently thnt Inasmuch as the Supcrbns were firmly Intrenched In the first divi sion, ns they were In tho heart of Brook lyn fandom, ho could not bo charged with ulterior motives in urging such n sweep ing reform. Ho pleaded tho cause of tho tnllcnders of tho past, prctcnt, and tall cmlci.i to come. Tho question of dunging the phoer limit was discussed In an Informal man ner, and the various club owners were sounded. The (Jl.ints. Braves and Cubs are In favor of raising the limit to - players, while Brooklyn. St. Louis, Pitts burgh and Cincinnati stood firm for the limit as It was. There io many men of many minds, to be sure, so Cincinnati favored a reduction In the plajer limit and argued that the number bo plnced at 20. Whllo on the question of players and player limits. It was decided that the Culm bo allowed until April of 1917 to dispose of their surplus players, but that they will hae to conform to the 21-playcr limit this year, regardless of the number of players they havo under contract. The constitution was so amended thnt, starting with the coming season, any manager who Is suspended for any cause will not receive nny salary. Heretofore letter of tlie rule applied only to plaors. It was voted, also, that any club which disregarded the rule would bo lined $-30. This action was taken to clear up a point which was raised several times last car when bench managers Incurred tho ofllclal wrath of umpires and were sus pended by the president of tho Icaguo. WHITTED SENDS SIGNED CONTRACT TO PHILLIES Outfielder Is in Good Shape for 1916 .;. Season DUrtHAM, N. a, Feb. lOQeorge Whltted, who a few weeks ago strenuous ly objected to the contract the Phillies sent him for this season, had a change of mind about holding out, for he has signed tho document and forwarded It to the club's headquarters In Philadelphia. Whltted evidently did not like the Idea of being a hold-out, especially when to many of the Federal League stars were banging around loose. Whltted Is In splendid condition, for he has been leading tho outdoor life all winter, hunting. Ashing and cross-country tours afoot being bis chief occupation. Ills leg Is sound again and George lookB for a banner year with the Phils. TINKER FIRST TO CLAIM FLAG IN NATIONAL RACE Cubs Will Play in 1016 World's Series, Says Manager CHICAQO, Feb. 10,-Joe Tinker jumped Into the limelight today with the sea son's first claim of a big league pennant. In a statement telegraphed here from New York the boss of the Cubs-Whales said his organization Is certain to repre sent the Nationals In the world's series next October, And he reasons thusly; "I have the best pitching staff in the league. The only outfield that compares with mine Is the Giants'- garden trio. I'vo got the best Infield of both leagues and the best pitch ing staff of the bunch. Beside.

Hut hope has sprung higher in .tho baseball breast of the Natlonnl League this season than it over sprang licfore. Wo mean by this that moro ball clubs In thnt circuit nctually believe they hao a chance to win tho pennant than nny other pabslng winter has ever known. Not (ho Old Bunk You know tho old spring bunk of tho game "tho team that beats us out," etc. There Is none of that bunk this season, noston. Philadelphia, Urooklyn, Now York, Chicago and Pittsburgh feol pretty huio tliev hnc u good Inside chance to win. while Cincinnati and St. Louis aro looking for llrst-divlslon finishes. Some one, ns usual, Is duo for u Jolt. But pick ing the older of tho October parade is an other matter. For the first tlmo In many campaigns thcro will be no distinct favorite. Giants and Itcds llnlshcd under tho heap last fall yet Giants and Heds today look to bo ns stoutly constructed ns any other two rivals. The Philly Outlook The pennant winner of ono year Is gon cially picked to lepent upon tho theory that it Is the best looking club until somo rival piovcs different. Few this Into whiter are picking tho Phils to mnin tuln their perch on top. They havo their chance with the Held but It Isn't anj better chance than Braves, Dodgers nnd others have. On form ma should present the Big Rciambic, which should mean pyramided interest through tho summer.

So did Drydcn, Keats and Gray; Shelley, Milton, Moore and I'ope, All were leaders in their day; Southcy had a subtle touch, Coleridge teas a winning bard; Virpil holds an endless clutch On the busy world's regard; Yet within this high brow fog I would leave these stranded flat, With the right to slip my co7 Under "Casey at the Bat." Ty Cobb's Rival "Ty Cobb," said George Stalllngs a day or two ugo, "will have one rival this sea son. Just one. No, I am not referring to Speaker or Collins or Jackson or Kauff. I am referring to T.ee Magee, of the Yan kees " "Magee." continued Stalllngs, "will be the closest thing to Cobb there Is in the game. In the first place, he looks like Ty Is about the same build. In the second place, he Is almost as fast and shifty not only with his feet, but with his brain. Like Cobb, he is a fine hustler, and like Cobb, he Is of the aggressive, run-making type. More About Magee "There is another thing about Magee that hasn't been commented upon. Magee Is a made-over left-hand batsman. That Is, he started out as a right-hand hitter and then switched over. It has taken him some time to get accustomed to this change. But if you will notice, he has been getting better and better. Last year he looked to have found himself. lis should bat better this year than he ever did before. If he doesn't bat around .330 or better I will be very much surprised. I told Ty the last time I saw him that he had a real rival this season, and I believe the year's records will show that I am right." Among those who hope that Colonel Stalllngs Is not wrong are Colonel J. Run pert. Captain T, L. Huston and Smiling William Donovan. Maxims of the 19th Hole My son.

COACH FOIU'ELL PLANS NEW SYSTEM FOR PENN FOOTBALL Confident Quakers Will Win Every Game on 1916 Schedule More than 73 members of last year's varsity, scrub nnd freshmen teams reported at tho football rally last evening at tho Athletic Association office at Welghtman Hall. The meeting was called with the Idea of bringing the fellows into closer touch with the new coaches. Folwcll outlined tho plans he had laid for tho coming season In relation not only to tho games scheduled, but to the train ing as well. "The entire spirit should change," Fol wcll said, "and there should be an elim ination of tho factions which havo been so evident tho last season. I am going to havo an entirely now system," he con tinued, "one tnat has proved to be good." Folwell Is confident that tho team will defeat every team which It will encounter during tho season. In speaking of tho manner In which he will pick the team, he said: "I will select my men according to their defensive abilities, for I believe that a good defensive team has the battle three-quarters won." Ho advised the men to go Into some particular sport which would keep them In good condition until the fall. Bowing, baseball, track and lacrosso he mentioned as being well fitted to condition a person for football. Fol well gave a brief summary of his expe rience as a coach and trainer at La fayette. Johns Hopkins and Washington and Jefferson to enable the candidates for next season's team to understand him better. Capablanca Draws With Kupchik NEW YOnK. Feb. lO.-Joso n.

The gymnastic team will open Its Inter collegiate season with Princeton tomor row night at Wclghtmann Hall. On Sat urday the basketball team plays Colum bia University at Mornlngslde Heights, New York. Tho wrestling team, which was selected Inst night, will open Its Intercollegiate season on Saturday with tho Naval Academy at Annapolis. The only local event at Franklin Field on Sat urday will be tho dual swimming meet between Pcnn and Yale. The Ited and Bluo basketball team at the present tlmo is leading tho other teams In tho League race, having won four games and dropped one, that being to Yale at New Haven by a score of 18 to 17. Tho rted and Bluo team Is In flno fettle for tho contest, nnd while not having met the Columbia bunch so far this season, they should have no trouble In coming out n victor, Tho success of the Fenn wrestling team against tho Naval Academy matsmen will depend upon tho men wrestling In the classes from 115 pounds to 15S. The loss of tho Injured Jllke Dorlzas, the Greek, the Intercollegiate champion In the heavyweight class, Is keenly felt, as no ono has been found to nil hl3 place. With two defeats and ono victory as their record, tho Pcnn swimming team will endeavor to even up tho score by handing a defeat to the Yale tankmen. Coach George Klstler has been working tho squad hard and It Is steadily showing improvement, as shown by the work In tho recont meet with tho University of Pittsburgh. Captain Jimmy Shyrock Is In splendid form, having recovered from his attack of malarial fever. It Is tho first big meet for Yale and, while they aro not very strong as an all-around team, they should givo Penn a hard battle.

Not as Hungry The lads whose chief concern In sprln Is tho pretty tlntlnabulatlon of the dinner bell may fight shy of tho dining room on tho conditioning tour this year. At th rate of 25 cents for soup and $1.25 for steak they may not bo as hungry In tha spring of 1916 as In the days of the base ball war. Then the magnates were smlllnr through their tears and standing for nearly nnythlng to keep the slaves In line. Now, with tho magnates on terms of ex. trcme friendliness, there's a stringency of the old purse strings which looks porten tous for the sprlng-tlmo gambolcrs. It was a matter of Jest In last year'j training tours that the players were rub bing It In on their obedient owners. Ex. penses meant llttlo to them; tho club owners had a lot of 'em, and the more they paid tho more they seemed to grla Training bills ran into thousands, ana the spring games brought only a few pal try shekels, scarcely enough to buy lln. inciiL ior wimcr-soiiencu nurling wings. And the start of the league season found the chtbowners maccd for a right respec table roll. No Extravagance No one has announced It yet, maybe no ono will, but persons In tho know of base ball don't believe for a minute the mag nates will bo tossing away railroad fare, hotel expenses and other coin this year Just to hear it Jingle along the pavement. Maybe a whole crowd of athletes will havo to pay tho conductor for tho ride from their respective homes to their equal ly respective rendnav.wa; maybe they will have to go through cenUn financial for malities with tho hotel man this year which were attended to in 1915 by the club treasurers, and maybe, while tha game of supposln' Is strong maybe some of the players will find the price of their own unlfprms deducted from the first semimonthly pay check. Ball players winked at their financial and gastronomic stategy on the road la other years. They dropped off at way sta tions and stayed tho pangs of hunger with, lunch-counter sandwiches, though they were allowed liberally for dining-car men's at dining-car prices. It was a form of graft, and with some athletes amounted to quite a sum In the course of the season. SOLD FROM THE Sanitary Humidor BY ALL GOOD DEALERS BAYUK A Bwaatwy VPS .
