No One Knows Source of the "Inside Stuff," but
It Appears Reasonable Considering the
Battlers' Present Condition
THE lip la out In Now York that Frank Mnrnn will tic-tout .loss Wlllttrd In
tho hlpr bnttlo on Mnrch 2fi. No one knows whore tills "insldo stult" oritthmtci),
but all of tho wlso birds that roost on Ilromlwny mo (IIkrIiir Into tho fmnlly
bunk rolls and wnfjcrlnff thcjr perfectly Rood coin with reckless abandon. Many
bets have been placed that Francis will rceclvo tho majority of newspaper
decisions, while a few bravo persons arc
jwlll knock out Wlllard before tho fracas Is over.
Perhaps thcro Is a reason for this financial bravery, or It nilfht bo tho
result of tho dreams of dopestcrs. Then, again, the wise ones mlRht bo barking
.their own Judgment after looking over tho training methods employed by tho
tltleholdcr and tho challenger.
Jess Wlllard is not training hard for the bout. Ho appears every nftrr
noon at tho Pioneer A. C. and performs before tlio "two-bit" niidlenco 30 min
utes per day. Tho boxing bouts with his friendly partners arc Iiuko jokes, and
aa yet tho champion has shown nothing that can bo considered hlgli-clnss foiltl.
Moran, on tho other hand, is working hard every day, is In tho best of shnpo
and can enter tho ring today and glvo n good account of himself. Whllo Jess
Is warming his feet near tho steam radiator on sloppy days, Frank Is trudging
through tho snow and slush on ono of his soven-mile jaunts. All of Which points
to tho fact that Moran means business, while Wlllard seems to be taking n chance.
Willard Is Out for the Coin
By this tlmo it Is a well-known fact that Wlllard and his barber manager.
Tawm Jones, of Kewance, III., are out for the money, and they don't euro how
they get It. That stunt of charging the public 2." cents to look at tho champion
cavorting around tho stago and the barring of newspaper photographers looks
Very bad.
Ono day last week a photographer had tho courago to approach Wlllard's
training quarters to tako some pictures of the champion. I to was stopped nt
the door, and It is said that Mr. Jones sent down word that nothing could bo
dono until ho (Mr. Jones) arranged for "his share." This sounds llko petty
larceny, and as a result few pictures have been shown, as tho photographers
refuse to "glvo up."
Wlllard is unpopular and is growing more so ench day. Ifo has acquired
an nlr of conceit which Is not nt nil becoming, and perhaps It is tho wish that
howlll bo defeated that has stimulated tho betting In tho largo city.
Hatty's Fate Is in Dnulit
.Fans who for the last 15 years viewed tho exploits of Christy Muthowson
oro dubious as to tho success of tho Old Master In this soiisou'h campaign.
Matty Is toiling daily at Marlln, Tex., and on tho outcome of his condition
depends largely his fate In tho games to come.
Big Six in making' a determined effort to get In shape. Should tho pains
in his shoulder return when ho cuts loose, his career as n member of the Glonts
Will probably como to an end. It would bo useless for him to continue training.
Last season tho big hurlcr was off form on account of a nervous disorder
In his left shoulder and his neck, and accordingly spent much tlmo on tho
bench. When he did resume his post ho was hammered harder than a bush
leaguer Just breaking in. lie has been under tho care or a specialist all winter,
and on his departure for Mnrllu was told that It wns nlmott certain that bis
old trouble would not return.
Amateur Association Great Boost for Baseball J
Tho coalition of tho Federal League and organized baseball was probably
the biggest factor that ever developed for increasing tho popularity of tho
national pastime. But the work of tho XMinnnl Baseball Fodoiation, tho body
reprcsentatlng tho amateur leagues of America, is second in this respect. The
Federal League affair might bo properly termed nn accident in the history of
baseball, whllo tho continued efforts of tho X. B. F. is simply nn overllow, so to
speak, of baseball interest and enthusiasm.
Next Saturday thero will bo a meeting of this amateur association In Cin
cinnati. At that meeting It is proposed 'to have every amateur league in tho
country join tho Federation. This will mean that baseball will get tho most
general Impetus that it has ever gotten since tho beginning of organized base
ball and tho adoption of tho constitution which governs it.
For Eoveral years Cleveland' has been tho seat of the best amateur base
ball In tho country. Thero are more than 100 leagues in tho Ohio city today,
and every year tho municipal tournament nttracts far greater crowds than tho
Indians, on tho average. Of course, ono reason for this is that the games nvo
played once a week; nevertheless, tho excellent quality of baseball put up bv
the contending teams shows that tho Interest Is not entirely duo to tho com-'
paratlvely long tlmo between games.
With Cleveland doing her full fdiarc, St. Louis, Chicago, Louisville, Columbus
and Philadelphia joining in, tho Federation this year should enter on a period
of prosperity and progress hitherto undreamed of by tho original backers of
the scheme.
May Draw Haughton Back to Harvard
Strangely enough tho many former Harvard football stars now resident
In this city and conspicuous in tho activities of many of tho prominent local clubs,
are not mourning today nnd deploring the fact that Oilman, tho All-American
tackle and captain of tho 191G Harvard football cloven; Boles, a fast-running
varsity halfback, and Tom Enwrlght, looked upon ns tho successor to Brlckley
and Maliun In tho Crimson barklleld, have been dropped from colloco for failure,
to pass examinations.
Many of these Harvard men, whllo regretting that such a line typo of man
as Gllman should bo lost to the team, look upon this action of the Harvard
faculty as a blessing In disguise. They take this view, a strange ono to bo sure,
because they believe it to bo the lono thing that will keep Percy ITnughtou
In control of Harvard football for a year or two more, at least.
It has generally been recognized by Harvard men here that Ilnughton would
not actively control Hnrvard football next fall, but that he would, In view of
his pressing duties with tho Boston baseball club, bo tho advisory head of tho
eleven, and that tho actual coaching, which ho has performed In the past with
such care and marvelous result, would fall to others. The planning of Harvard's
play was to have fallen to Haughton, but somo of bis nrnsent. sloff nf rnnijliivs
would take up the actual Held work.
... !
Oilman Was a Tried, Seasoned Player I
This course was believed feasible In view of tho fact that Harvard had such
a mature, seasoned captain ns Oilman, who Is older than tho usual run of college
player, a thinker and marvclously efficient player. It was thought that as so I
many veterans were available, and such a man ns Oilman In direct ehargo on tho
field, Haughton could nfford to step out and let the mnchlne go nlnntr on j
its own momentum until a now controling head was obtained. j
Now the complete elimination of Gllman, with its consequent upsetting of j
plans, and tho removal of Harvard's bulwark In the line, makes matters assume a '
serious aspect, and tho pressure from all sides, ns well as from within Haughton' I
own mind, Is believed .by local clubmen to bo now great enough to Induce tho
peerless Haughton to put himself to the necessary inconveniences and to assume
once more the burden of Harvard's coaching destinies.
Penn Needs a Department of Freshman Athletics
Now that tho board of trustees of tho University of Pennsylvania has set
aside one plot of eround of tho newly acquired museum tract for tho use of the
Athletic Association, It should make a still further advance by establishing a
department of freshman athletics, under tho supervision of a competent director.
No big university in tho country has ever been so handicapped for room to develop
its athletics as Pennsylvania. The plan of the Football Committee to turn this
new field over to the freshman football team is good us far as it goes, but tho
sports of the first year men have now assumed such an Importance that they
deserve something more than a separate field.
Harvard has the right Idea. Tho Crimson authorities put their freshman
athletics under the management of a single department two years ago, nnd with
one accord they announce It one of the best things thoy ever did. It would benefit
Pennsylvania similarly, because it is the only way to get first year students started
in athletics and to interest them sufficiently to keep them In athletics for their
entire college course.1.
As things are now, the average freshman pursues his athletics only as long
as he sees he has a chance to make a varsity team. Tho suggested department
ts needed to retain the Interest of the mediocre men who, with careful supervision,
m&y frequently be developed into flrt-clasa athletes.

NEW YORK, March 0. Bifr
Jess Willard is a modest young
fellow. He hates to have his pic
ture taken, especially by strange
O. P. Browning, representing the
Associated Newspapers, yesterday
attempted to snap the champion as
ho walked from his hotel along
West 81st street toward Central
Jess had previously refused to
poso for Browning unless the lat
ter had Tom Jones' permission to
make the picture. Browning did
not have tho consent.
Says Browning in describing
subsequent happenings:
"Willard rushed at me, grabbed
me, shook me and threw my camera
in a snowbank."
Browning hadn't made up his
mind last night whether to sue
Jess or not.

WHAT are the Phillies going tn do,

Interest Shown in Recent Tournament Holds
Well for Development of Stars Larger
Entry List Expected for Next Year
T1IK1U-: Is a saying that one Is never too
old to learn. It Is from new ventures j
that wo learned much from tho Indoor
tonuls championship or Philadelphia, held
last week at the armory.
First, many people learned what a few
of us already knew, that Willis K. Davis,
tho now champion. Is a tenuis player of
tho very first class. Some of us learnwl
It from sad experience.
it was also discovered, notwithstand
ing Paul lilbbons' assertion that many
great efforts wcro induced by the band,
that while music hath charms It is not
conducive to good tennis. However, since
wo heard Mr. (lilibnns make a few re
marks about that band we think be really
agrees with us.
The great discovery, however, Is that
Philadelphia Is quite able to play Indoor
tennis if given the opportunity. The
events in nil classes were marked by good
tennis and great Interest. The ladles
I played consistently and well. The boys
j showed that wo luivo quite a few proni
' Islug kids to work with, whllo the men's
! event produced some of the best tennis
I seen around Philadelphia in years.
The real reason that tho Interest was
sustained to tho end was tho efficient
management of Paul W. Gibbons, chair
man, and his assisting committee. Mr.
Gibbons never allowed the court to be
vacant for a moment, with the result that
every event except the men's doubles was
finished on time. These doubles would
have beon completed, only Thayer and
Hall. Thayer and Davis. Tllden and Os
borno and about threo others played over
time matches that delayed the doubles.
Thero. Is no doubt that next Benson's
tournament will see a larger and classic
entry list even than this. It Is a pleasure
to feel that the name of Willis V.. Davis,
California Stale champion, Is the first to go
on our new trophy cup. It will be a great
Incentive to men next year to try to place
their name alongside. Judging by Davis'
form Indoors. Jt looks as if we may also
have the pleasure of greeting him as our
next outdoor city champion.
The junior event wns a great success,
both in the Interest the boys took and tho
excellent tennis they played. Sering Wil

able form and would have made the event
nioro Interesting.
The two boys who showed tho best pos
sibilities ns far as strokes and knowledge
of the game goes were David Beard, of
Gorman'imn Academy, uiul Carl Msiher,
of Cynwyd. Fischer, with his reniarliublo
forehand drive, needs hut some good In
struction to make a really remarkabla
youngster. Beard Iuib a better rounded
game, volleying with nccuracy nnd hit
ting well from the base line. Both those
boys aro handicapped by size at present.
Howard Hhlel. runncr-no to Wilm m

Local Entry Training for Knockout
in Norristown Match
Iteports this morning from Allentown
stated that Jack McCarron was training
more diligently for his encounter with
Joe Borrell nt the Palace A. C, Norris
town, next Tuesday night, than for any
match of his career. "Middleweight Cham
pion of Pennsylvania" goes to the winner,
and the Irish Demon is anxious to bring
iiio who iu .uiemowjl.
Borrell has been dropping bis sparring
partners in gymnasium work-outs dally,
and he was confident today that he would '
have McCarron on the floor for the 10- i
second toll before tho limited 15 sessions i
expired. '
ht. Paul promoters will have their eyes
focused on the rebult of the Norristown
battle, and It Is probable the winner will
get an offer to meet Mike Gibbons. Bor
rell has been negotiating for a St. Paul
date for some time; thus his anxiety to I
win by the kayo route.
PjJj' -
Cravath and Alexander
Were Offensive and
Defensive Stars of
Last Season
fornia In 1902 and Joined Los Angeles In
190. lie remained with I,os Angeles un
til the Itcd h'ox purchased him. Ills career
since th''t time is too well known to he
worth 1'itirntlng.
nnnernft Is going to be even better
than In I91C, and prnbnbly will he tho
peer of shortstops before the coming sea
son ends; whllo .Stock also should Im
prove. .N'ielioff may bo u trifle better, but
lie Is a player who has certain llm'ts,
above which he never will go. and tho
mad chase for a second baseman this win
ter will not Improve his confidence any,
Knrrlng the pitching and catching,
there is not another position on the team
which Is likely to be stronger than last
year. Already Goodo is being awarded
Paskert's position, but if ho beats the
veteran out It will Hurprlse National
League players greatly.
The great trouble with Paskert Is lack
of confidence. If he can open the season
...m, ,. ,.,, i.,1Mn i.i. i. ...mi ..nntlm.n tn
- ...
chili the ball, but if lie gets iv sturt simi
lar to 191!, his average will be just about
as low. Paskert worries and thinks too
much about bis batting average, and must
be rid of tho fault. Put at that bo is
a better all-around man than Goode If
the latter has shown his best at Chicago.
Whlttcd Is a certainty In left, and Is
a good outfielder. It Is said that he will
be switched to second base, hut there Is
Ilttlo chance of this, lluggins tried to
make a second baseman of Whlttcd, but
found that ho was not only slow In
handling throws, but could not field a ball
to his right, lie also takes too much
tlmo getting n ball away from him. To
throw fast and accurately. Whltted must
straighten up. and this type never
amounts to much nt the keystone sack.
Good Pitchers
Tho Phillies will have another great
pitching stuff, and there lies Its chance for
tho pennant. If Mayer can get off to a
j great start again and docs not break In
I mldseason, as be did In 1915, he will win
! about five more games than ho did last
i year. Manager Moran will have more con
fidence In Chalmers nnd he will be allowed
to work oftener. Chalmers will be oven
better than Mayer If he gets a good stnrt,
as he gains confidence and goes better If
luck Is breaking for him.
"Chief" Uender Is going to be a great
help to Moran. Tho former Mackman
still has his old-time speed, and just so
long as he lias it lie will be a wonder for
relief pitching, even If he fnlls to go the
route. The writer Is confident that Bender
Is going to shock tho baseball fans who
have been predicting that he Is through ns
a major leaguo pitcher. If Bender Ib able
to go to the relief of wavering twlriera
Moran will bo enabled to keep Alexander
out of the "bull pen," which will permit
the Nebraskon to save his strength for a
gruelling finish.
A good left-hander Is needed badly by
the Phils. Illxey pitched some line games
last season, particularly against the
Braves, hut tho team has little confidence
in him because he lacks it himself. He
must show this season If he Is ever to be
of much value to the team. If Illxey does
at least show the form Ills great natural
ublllty should permit, Moran's stare will
be ns formidable as that of the Braves,
Not much dependence can bo placed
on the recruits, but Demaree and McQuil
lan may prove of value. Demaree has an
excellent head and a thorough knowledge
of the National League batsmen, which
makes his position certain. McQuillan
must show consistent form or he may be
allowed to depait to make room for Joe
