Hoffner only needed 21 strokes for tho
first six holes, and on tho first four holes
of tho last half he had threo birds and

Both finals for the junior championship
of Pennsylvania aro scheduled to be played
at the Cynwyd Club tomorrow. The sin
gles event, between nerman F. Dornhelm,
of Frankford High School, and Malcolm
Thorpe, of Oak Lane, should be a rattling
fine match. Thorpe was virtually unknown
beforo the tourney began. Ha plays little
offensive tennis, but confines himself prin
cipally to driving to all parts of his op
ponent's court from tho base line. Dorn
helm has a highly developed net attack,
drives well with either hand and In his

LUCK OF PHILLIES
HAS CHANGED FOR
BEST, SAYS MORAN
Mayer's Victory Over Toney
Called First Break of
BROOKLYN FARES WELL
By CHANDLER D. RICIITER
Manager Pat Mornn, of the Phillies,
Is convinced thnt tho luck of the cham
pions has turned. Moran contends that
tho breaks have been going against the
Phillies throughout the season, but he
has never complained nor alibied a de
feat by blaming It on poor luck; but ho Is
willing to admit That ho got a' good break
yesterday, when Krkulnc Mayer pitched a
surprising game ngalnst the Reds nnd won
a pitching duel from Fred Toney.
While Moran Insists that the victory was
duo largely to the break of luck going to
tho Phils, no doubt ho overlooks the fact
that ho purely Is duo noma credit for his
nhrewdness In picking the proper pltcher.
Moran declares that ho had no Intention
of using Mayer on the mound until George
Chalmors had warmed up In poor stylo.
"It was the first good break we have had
all tho year," declared Moran after the
game, "In the first place wo were lucky to
win against the pitching served by Frod
Tonoy, and ln tho second it was largoly n
mattor of luck that I picked Mayer to
pitch. Mayer pitched a grand gamo and It
required shut-out hurling to win. That Is
why I figure we got a lucky break.
"I had no Intention of using Mjfyer yes
terday, but after I watched TJhalmers
warm up I felt that ho was not right and
could not boat Toney. Mayer had been
Bhowlng a lot of stuff ln practice for the
last two weeks, so I thought that today
wan as good a time as any to see whether
ho was going to bo of any uso to me this
"We havo needed Mayer, In his 1915
form, and I decided to give him a chance
to come back. He did, and I think that the
victory Is likely to start him oft on n win
ning streak Several times ho was saved
by great lidding, and tho victory was what
ho needod. Thero has been nothing wrong
with Mayor, excepting that ho has been
strangely lacking ln confidence, due no
doubt to the number of reverses ho has met.
"It was pretty nearly time wo got a
break. Look at tho way things havo been
breaking for Brooklyn. Understand, I don't
want to take any credit away ftom Robin
son nnd His team, because they are lead
ing on their merits; but I never saw a
team getting better breaks. I thought wo
got some good breaks last season, but they
wero nothing compared to tho luck Brook
lyn has had this season.
"Tnko the present week for oxample Jako
Daubert, tho most valuable man in Robby's
llnc-up, wns hurt, and noedod at least four
day3 of rest to bring him around. Four
days Is a long Btretch nt this Btage, and It
Ib possible, and, In fact, likely, that tho
Dodgers would run Into a slump without
Daubert, but the rain kindly Interfered, and
Brooklyn has played only ono game since.
"That was ono break, and then they had
another right on top of It. Pfeffer wns
batted out of the box last Saturday and two
pthor pitchers havo shown signs of crack
ing, but tho rain again saved Robhy. Pfeffer
has pitched only two liinlnea all week, and
tho rest will bring him back. These aro
only a few of tho breaks that tha Dodgors
have gotten. They havo boen getting tham
nil year, but I think tho lane has turned.
Anyway, you can count on tho Phillies
strong, and It Is anybody's pennant"
Moran May Be Wrong
It Ib refreshing to meet a manager who
will admit that ho won a lucky game. The
majority of them win always because of
somo piece of strategy they have pullod,
nnd seldom give the other fellow any credit.
But as to Brooklyn getting the breaks this
week, wo cannot ngreo with Moran.
There Is no question about the Dodgers'
luck throughout tho season, but we are of
the opinion that the present week may go
a long way toward stopping tho Brooklyn
winning streak. The loss of Daubert would
have weakened Brooklyn, but tha rest of
the team and tho pitchers have been going
at such a terrific clip that thoy probably
would havo continued to win without the
brilliant first baseman.
It Is possible that tho western teams.
with which Brooklyn will hava many
doubte-headers In tho closing weeks of tho
season, will be trying out recruits, but that
Is hardly likely. Tho western teams hardly
deserve censure for trying to strengthen,
but President Tener should Insist that they
put their full strength In the field against
the threo pennant contenders during the
last month of the season.
The rest Brooklyn has had Is likely to
throw tha team off Its stride, If onl&for n
few days; and they cannot afford to lose
any ground or ba in poor shnpa at this
Btage. The Dodgers surely will not be
right to battle against the Braves, even
thoygh Pfeffer may profit by tha rest.
It must be discouraging for a pitcher to
hurl two successive losing games, such as
Fred Toney did against the Braves and
Phillies, only to lose because his team-mates
cannot get him a run. Toney held the
Braves to two hits on Monday, but lost, 2
to 0, while yesterday tho big fellow allowed
tha Phillies three safeties, one of which
was a scratch, but the result was tha same.
In 1915 Toney pitched the same brand
of ball throughout the season and the ma
jority of his victories were low-scora games,
but ha was getting better breaks and the
Reds, were batting harder, Losing games
Ilka tha last pair Toney has dropped goes
a long way toward starting- a veteran on

went ahead However, pedal trouble put
Walthour out for over a minute and Car
man continued to lead the bunch until the
fifty-third mile wns reached.
All this tlmo tho various contestants had
been struggling valiantly, but they were
surpassed by George Columbatto, who

At tho sixtieth mllo tho great crowd

and thousands for tho Italian. Both Car
man nnd Columbatto were putting every
ounco of tholr cnorgy Into tho pedals of

proved tho gnmer, and gradually Carman,
circling high on tho motor Incline, pulled
away from his rival and crossed the finish
lino 30 yards in advance of Columbatto.
Wiley peddled across third, Walthour wns

Tho hardest luck performer of tha evening
