. STALLINGS BELIEVES THAT BRAVES ARE CLASS OP LEAGUE AND WILL SURELY WIN PENjNANf
PERFECT HARMONY PREVAILS
IN RANKS OF BOSTON BRAVES,
SAYS MANAGER STALLINGS
Rumor That Friction Exists Among Players Is
Branded as a Pake Fighting Leader Says
Team Will Soon Climb to Top
AWBW days ajro tho Detroit Free Press printed a story under a Boston dato
lino to tho effect that there was friction In the ranks of the Braves. Tho
yarn went tin to tell Just how the trouble started and who wero the ringleaders
In tho two cliques. A few momenta betoro yesterday's game we asked Manager
JBtaillngs, of the Braves, what ho had to say about the rumor.
fltalllnga Is hot the mildest-mannered man under any conditions, but what ho
aid yesterday would not look very welt In print. Between ravings this Is about
tho etim and substance of what StnUlngs had to say: '.Thoro is not a grain of
truth to tho yarn, and you can't toll mo that It originated in Boston, because
everybody up there knows better. My boys have their .arguments, but they all
occur on tho (told and are forgotton as soon as the game is over. Show me a ball
team that does not have thorn on the ball field and I will show you a crowd of
players who are playing only for their salaries.
"Thoro is not a team In either league in which greater harmony prevails, and
the Braves aro pulling together bettor than over before. Did they play on Friday
er Saturday as if they wero not pulling together? Well. I guess not. Just
watch them today. Wo havo not been hitting, and that Is why wero aro not out
If wo had been able to nvorago oven eight hits to a gamo for the last six
Weeks, wo would bo IB games In front. Tho pitching and dofenso havo been as
flood as. in 1914, and tho team is Just starting to And Its punch. Wo were going
too good in tho spring, and suffered a natural reaction, but watch us go now.
That yarn Is nothing but a fake of the rankest order, and every player on my team,
and tho scribes traveling with tho tnam, will bear mo out.
Rumors Don't Worry Braves
"TF THE story was written In hopes of stirring up troublo, It will fall In Its pur
JL poso. None of my players pay any attention to things of that sort. Tho moro
tho fans and scribes 'rldo' them tho better they play. That Is why tho Braves aro a
great team. They will lmprifo as tho race progresses, and play better ball In tho
trotch, which is more than I can say for ono or two other teams.
"And about Hughes uslnr tho 'emery ball' or somo other freak delivery thero
Is nothing in It. I know a lot of ball players aro suro that ho has some trick,
because thoy never saw pitcher with so much 'stuff' as Tom has this season.
Ho always had it, though. Ho had It when ho waa with Rochester, and that Is
why I picked him up. ' I knew what ho could do becauso I had watched him In
tho International League foi several seasons.
"If Hughes was as strong as Alexander, Johnson and a fow other stars, ho
would .outclass them. I am not exaggerating a bit when I say he Is tho greatest
pitcher In tho game. You might say that he pitched a greater number of Innings
than any min in tho National League, barring Alexander, last season. Well, that
does not necessarily mean that ho Is strong. Hughes pitched In many games,, but
only a, feyv Innings In tho majcrity. ,
"Thero aro somo pitchers who can pitch three or four innings a day, and never
leel the strain, but when you ask them to pitch nlno today and go back for nine
tnoro two days later, they fall. Hughes is a pitcher of that type. If I could afford
to pitch him Just bne full game a week, ho would never lose, but as It Is I must
end him In day after day to save games for other fellows. Ho has more work on
the ball than any other pitcher In the game, and It Is natural. He Is not using tho
"emery ball' or any other freak delivery."
Hughes Renlly Is a Wonderful Pitcher
AS STAINGS walked out of the Phllly Park after the gamo, ho said, "What
. dld.I tell you, and what do you think of Hughes now?"
Wo admitted that ho was a wonderful pitcher, and so did 12,000 fans who saw
the lanky veteran twlco go to the relief of a faltering teammate, and by brilliant
pitching savo both games of the double header with tho Phillies, after Boston had
taken tho lead. It was Hughes' third appearance on tho mound In three days, and
In each gamo ho had the Phillies completely at his mercy. Unfortunately for
Hughes, ho Is credited with only ono of tho victories, Roulbach being given one and
Itagan tho other, according to tho present scoring rules.
On Saturday Hughes relieved Ragan, and held tho Phillies In check for the
List flvo innings, enabling the Braves to hold their early lead. As Boston was
ahead when Hughes entered the game, tho victory was given to Ragan, who
Would surely have been beaten It he had been allowed to finish the game. In the
first gamo yesterday ho, relieved Reulbach, but as Boston had taken the lead in tho
first half of tho inning, tho victory was credited to tho latter.
If It had not been for a wild throw by- Catcher Gowdy, In trying to catch Stock
off third on a double steal Hughes would not havo received credit for the second
Victory, either. This wild throw enabled tho Phillies to tlo tho score, and started
Hughes out on oven terms with McQuillan, who relieved Slayer. Hughes held tho
Phillies in checkv for tho rest of tho gamo, and when tho Braves scored four
runs in the 10th inning, this remarkablo pitcher at last got credited with a victory.
Defeats Soro Disappointment to Moran
THE doublo defeat was a bitter disappointment to Manager Moran and his players,
and also camo as a great surprise. The Phils believed that the Braves had "no
punch" to speak of, and as Hughes, tho only pltcher'Vfeared by Moran's men, had
been on tho mound for flvo innings on Saturday, tho champions believed that they
would surely win ono game, with an excellent chance to tako both.
On tho brand of ball played yesterday, tho Phillies will havo llttlo chanco to
beat the Braves, andjt really Is surprising that the two games were so close. Eppa
1 Rlxey's grand pitching, until two men had been retired In the eighth Inning of tho
first gamo, enabled tho Phils to hold a l-to-0 lead, despite the fact that Ed Reul
bach was twirling even bettir than the Phllly southpaw.
After Fitzpatrick had singled, sending home tho tying run, Manager Morari ;
pulled Rixey from the gamo. Bender being substituted with Magee duo to hltj ThlSV"
was done, desplto the fact that tho ex-Phllly outfielder had not made a hit off Rlxo'y
In three trips to the plato. It proved a poor move, as Magee smashed the ball Into
left for a single, scoring Maianvlllo and Fitzpatrick with the winning runs. While
tho Braves added two more runs in the ninth nt the expense of Joe Oescljger,
they were not needed, as Hughes held the Phils In check."
Miserable Fielding Marred the Second Game
rpHE second game was a farce, and only a great batting rally prevented the
JL champions from being shown up badly. Tho fielding of both teams was de
cidedly off form, but the Phllly mlsplays were more costly, and also were made on
easier chances than those of the Braves, Four of the five runs made by tho Phils
wefOtallled In the sixth inning, and all wero due to costly mlsplays by Catcher Tra
cesser land First Baseman Konetchy.
The final run was due to Gowdy's wild throw. In the other innings the Phils
bad little chance to score, and really were lucky to carry the Braves along for 10
innings. Six errors were charged against the champions, and they made almost
s many of omlpslon, such as throwing the ball to the wrong base, passed balls, etc.
Tho' last pair of errors payea the way for tho Boston victory.
Four of the first five batters to face McQuillan In the 10th inning reached first
base, though none of them hit the ball out of the infield. Bancroft started the
trouble by making an error which permitted Smith to reach first. He took second
; en a passed ball, and- was sacrificed to third by Snodgrass. Gowdy was purposely
passed, and Tyler, who batted in place of Hughes, was hit by a pitched ball, filling
tho bases. McQuillan then made a wild throw to the plate, after making a splendid
top of Maranville's tap. McQuillan went to pieces at this stage, and Evers and
' Magee. followed with singles, bringing the total up to four unearned runs.
Jt was rather odd that Magee should have made the Jilt that defeated Bender.
he. last time Magee batted against the Indian he was struck on the wrist with a'
fast balL The wrist was broken, and the brilliant outfielder was forced to remain
cut of the same for six weiks. Magee bad his revenge, but Bender still has the
ilge, as Magee 's absence from the game cost the Braves many games.
Stalling- outguessed Moran in the eighth inning, and caused the Phllly boss to
Weaken his team without gaining the advantage expected. With Nehf, a southpaw,
pn tho mound. Moran sent Whltted In to bat In place of I.uderua. As the two pre-
, Ylaug batters had, hit safely It seemed certain that Nehf would be pulled out of
. the game anyway, but Moran decided to tako a chance on Whltted. As soon as
Whltted was announced as the batter, Hughes replaced Nehf, and fanned Whltted

YALE HOPES TO OPEN GRIDIRON
SEASON NEXT FALL THAT WONT
BE QUITE SO CRIMSON-TAINTED
By GRANTLAND KICE
YATiH Is looking for a new start against
Harvard next fall and Vale needs It.
Tho Crimson triumph has been ttbout as
complete this season as a triumph can 'be.
On land and water Yalo lias found no balm
left In her QUoad of woe. Tho New Lon
don episode was the concluding wallop.
Tho solo chanco for any Ell buoyancy now
remains in tho hope that Tad Jones, Mike
Sweeney and Cupid Black may open a new
res I mo next fall that will not bo quite as
crimson-tinted ns the one that has just
como to a close.
Showing Again the Uncertainty, Etc.
Thero were no blazing headlines nor un
couth cheers around last winter when It
was announced that the Yanks had pur
chased Nick Cullop, the Fed southpaw. Tho
comment thereon was well-nigh Inaudible.
Yet today Nick Is tho solo pitcher In either
big league who has not beon beaten. He
has put his wares on display against almost
overy club In tho circuit, but no ono has
yet broken down his guard.
Cullop has what Hughey Jennings Bays Is
enough, and that Is everything. . Ho has a
blast of speed and one of tho quickest drops
In tho profession. His control Is (lawless,
and few wiser pitchers ever faced the men
acing mace. He Isn't llkoly to go through
the Beason unbeaten, but when ho loses, the
odds are 11 to 2 that it will not be his
Alexander vs. Johnson
Nlnetecn-slxtcen so far belongs to Grovor
Cleveland Alexander above his great rival,
Walter Johnson. The Phllly premier has
won 13 games and lost 3 for an average
of .812. Ho Is on his way to ono of tho
greatest years he over has known and he
has known his share of tho great ones.
Walter Johnson has been up against a
tougher break. The Idaho Blizzard has
won 11 games and lost 7, which Is only
nverngo pitching. Dut In 1913 Johnson won
3C games and lost only 7, which shows an
unusual lapso In his case. Tho big star
still Is a great pitcher. But so far 191G
doesn't glvo promlso of being ono of his
Why all this jubilee about
When Dillon meats Movant

Amid the ftohting clanT
The answer is a simple one
Bereft of any trick,
For Dillon has tho wallop and
Moran has got tho kick.
It may bo that Dillon will upset Moran
and land most of the glory. But In the
bleak law of tho gamo It Isn't very often
that a good llttlo man can beat a good big

Poems You May Care For
A Troop of the Guard
By HEItMAN HAGEDORN, Jr.
There's a trampling of hoofs in the busy
There's a clanking of sabres on floor and
There's a soutd of restless, hurrying feet,
Of voices that whisper, of lips that entreat,

and the blues

$18 and $20.
They're actual 20
to S3S values.
Will they live, will they die, will they strive,
will they dare?
The houses are garlanded, flaps flutter gay.
For a troop of the Guard rides forth today.
Oh, the troopers will ride and their hearts
When it's shoulder to shoulder and friend to
But it's some to the pinnacle some to tho
And some in tho glow of their strength to
Dut for all it's a fight to the tale's far endi
And it's each to his goal, nor turn nor away.
When a troop of the Ouard rides forth
The dawn is upon us, tho pale light speeds,
To the zenith with glamour and golden
On, up! Boot and saddles! Give Bpurs to
There's a city beleaguered that cries for
With the pain of tho world in its cavernous
OUrs bo the triumph! Humanity calls t
Life's not a dream in the oloverl
On to the walls, on to the walls,
On to tho walls, and over!

The flvo long putts we saw go down
Hold a forgotten tryst,
As we recall, with many a frown,
Tho short ono that we missed.

No, Sir; mileage is not altogether a question of gas. Oil's
gotta tot to do with it, you bet Do you know that, in
actual tests, cars have been known to yield as much as
five additional miles per gallon of gas when the right
lubricant was used? 'Sfact.
You oughta be Retting that extra mileage,
especially since it doesn't cost extra. There's
6ne safe, sure way of taking figures off your
gas and oil bill and putting mem on your
Epeedometer where they belong.
Use the combination Atlantic Gas for fuel;
Atlantic Motor Oils for lubrication. You can't
beat them anywhere.
Atlantic Polarine is THE oil for eight out
of ten cars. The alternative is one of the

Atlantic "Medium' or Atlantic "Heavy.'rAsk
your garageman which.
