effect on Moran'a team.
Here's the play: Dugey. running for Luderus was on "" "id Jf n

Klllefer caught a fast ball Just to his liking and I ted It far over Neales head to

b circuit drive had been needed. Dugey was beyond third when the ball bit he
ground, and there vas absolutely no chance to prevent Stock from , sco Ing he
winning run, but a bleacherlte reached out and tried to pull the ball Into the
seats, but failed.
Umpire Klgler saw the fan reach out. and Immediately raised his hand.
algnlfZlC that It was a blocked ball. The crowd had swarmed upon the lie Id.
Sv ng tl at the game was over, but Umpire Klgler stood in the center of the
dTamond and ordered the police to clear the field. He then sent Dugey and Stock.

Klllefer was deprived of a legitimate double and the credit for winning the
mme for the Phillies.
The game endel a few minutes Inter, when Paskert. batting In place of Me

E decision ana not Klgler. Blgler's duty was to watch , the baserunners and
to see that Dugey and Stock touched each base. He should not have been look
lng out Into the outfield, and he exceeded his authority.
Rlglcr Exceeded Authority
mHE play was all lost on Harrison, who failed to see anything wrong. He was
TEufiToTto the dressing room, anxious to make an early train to OndnjaU.
Ilule 37. Section 3. reads: If a person not engaged In the game should "ln pos

loss of a game, and vould not when It Is a question of judgment, but In this case

rrotTng tie gam. H Probably will do little good to protest the game, unless
President Tencr has changed greatly within the last week.
Manager Moran has submitted affidavits from the policemen .Utloned about
the field and hundreds of spectators, who came to the clubhouse after the game.
So dithS S Uio fan dW not touch the ball. As President " t
held the umpires at the investigation held In New "iork. It Is not """
anything will come cf the protest, but It la, time for the league boss to open his
eyes to conditions.
When Tom Lynch was president of the National, he upheld the umpires to such
an extent that conditions became Intolerable. Tho umpires became so Importan
tha "h "phSren could not even protest mildly. As a result, the fans lost Interest
5tU games because there was not enough excitement. The ultimate outcome waa
that umpire troubles resulted In the overthrowing of Lynch In favor o Tcner after
tho 1014 season. Tener apparently is following in Lynch's footsteps.
Screen Should be Erected
rT WAS a heart-breaking game to lose after such a splendid rally, but It may
serfas a lesion to tho Phllly owners. National League Cubs have , reque -ted
he Philadelphia management to put up a screen .above , the concrete -riband
havo gone so far as to try to have tno league i.naa . ".u " - -
ISN'T IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELING?
Phiu hiivn refused to consider the proposition.
This season the low bleacher wall has cost the Phillies more games than It has
won; but as It was a handy thing In other years, tho owners refused to erect the
screen. A team playing 77 games at home has a great advantage under ordinary
conditions, but it has proved a boomerang to tho champions this year.
Thero is absolutely no reason why a screen should not bo placed above the
concrete wall, as It will do away with the clement of luck on drives which bound
beyond the fielders. Any player who hits tho ball Into the seats cleanly is deserving
of a home run, but tho bounding drives are not legitimate circuit smashes, and
would not bo if a screen from 4 to 10 feet high was erected.
The Same Play That Came Up in 1913
IT HAS been claimed that this decision establishes a precedent on the Phllly field,
but such Is not the case. Wo can recall distinctly a similar ruling made by Bill
Klem during a game between the Phillies and Giants In 1913 when Johnny Dodge.
Who was killed by a pitched ball a month ago while playing In tho Southern League,
lost a legitimate homo run and the Phillies a victory becauso a fan could not wait
for a ball which surely would have landed In tho bleachers. In that game, however,
Klem was umplrc-in-c'hlef.
On this occasion Lobert was on second with the score a tie. Dodge was batting
about .100 at the tim. and it was really surprising that a pinch hitter was not sub-"
tltuted. Manager Dooin decided to take a chance on Dodge, who responded with
the longest drive he ever mado on tho home field. Tho ball struck Just In front of
tho bleachers, and was about to bound Into the seats when a spectator reached far
over the rail and tried to catch the ball on the first bounce.
The fan failed In his purpose, and tho ball rolled away from Fred Snodgrass,
who was playing center field. As the spectator had violated a rule by leaning out
over the playing field, and because the home team Is hold responsible for the actions
of the fans. Klem. the umpire In authority, immediately ordered Lobert to stop at
third base and Dodge was brought back to first. The next batter went out. and the
Mills lost a well-earned victory on a technicality, the Giants winning out in the last
Phillies Used Poor Judgment
WHILE the Phillies deserved the victory becauso of the rally. In other respects
Moran'a men were not entitled to win. They played poor offensive ball and
psed miserable Judgment at the bat. If tho Phils had played their usual style of
ball. It would not have been necessary for them to take their turn at bat In the
ninth Inning. No less-than three runB were tossed away because of poor Judgment
and an attempt to overwork the hit and run play on a spit-ball pitcher.
The champions tried to kill the ball throughout tho game, completely over
looking the possibilities of winning the game after It had been tied through
the use of tho sacrifice hit. Moseley looked easy and was batted harder than the
core would Indicate, but the Phils thought they could slug their way to victory.
Tho result was man' long flies to the outfield, Rousch alone having seven put
euts. The Phils stll' have an excellent chance to overhaul the Dodgers If they
tart a winning streak, but they will not do so if they do not use better Judgment
than was shown yesterday, '
Tilden Developing Powerful Service
THE continued success of W. T. Tilden, 2d, In the various lawn tennis tourna
ments this season has been due largely to his splendid Bervice. There are some
experts who believe that when Tllden'a service Is working well he has as much
peed' behind his drK'ea as Maurice McLoughlln, who was admitted to have the
most dazzling service In the world when he was at top form.
Realizing the Importance of the service to round out a great game, Tilden
began some years ago to lay particular stress on this end of the game. The
young Phlladelphlan has now developed his service to a point where It Is virtually
unplayable when he gets his flret ball In. However, at times he gets badly off
and double faults 'frequently.
Tilden uses thi straight American service. He Is more than six feet tall
,and is, therefore, naturally fitted to take advantage of the value of a good
service. Hla drives have a sharp break, and are usually placed so cleverly In
the court that the strlker-out pften falls to even touch the ball on an attempted
Tilden follows his service to the net, and Is always In a position to make a
kill of a weak or unt teady return. Oftentimes McLoughlln had points scored on
him because he failed to go to the net, working on the theory that' his opponents
Siad no chance to return his service. Tilden saw this fault In the great Call
forntan. and ha$ profited by it.

By CHANDLER D. RICHTEK
Manager Pat Moran. of the Phillies, a
leader who lias never been known to
"squeal" or blame tho defeats of his team
to poor umpiring, has written to President
Tcncr, of tho National League, explaining
his views of yesterday's fiasco and also tell
ing the former Governor Just what he thinks
of all National League umpires in gen
eral and a few In particular.
Just how Moran worded his letter we
do not know, but Judging by a few things
he told us this morning. President Tener
will not be so well pleased wltn nimseir.
Moran declares that tho umpires have be
come too "Important" and that they are al
lowed too much freedom, whereas tho play
er's rights have been taken from him.
Moran further states that Bill Klllefer.
who Is considered the bestVatcher in the
National League, may never be able to play
because Umpire Harrison permitted Louden
to step across the plate and Jab the Phllly
receiver with his bat Just as he was about
to throw to second to stop an attempted
steal by Noale. Moran Insists that Harri
son's attention was called to this trick, but
that he never paj-B any attention to the pro
tests. If Klllefer 13 lost to the Phillies for any
length of time it will mean that the team
Is out ot the pennant race. Eddie nurna
Is a capable receiver, as his work last fall
after relieving Klllefer proved conclusively.
In dlscUHsing the Phillies' protest of
yesterday's game Manager Moran said:
"I am protesting the game liccauso I
don't think Itigler had any right to make
the decision. A decision of that sort
rests entirely with the umpire behind the
plate, and Harrison was walking off the
field when Itigler called us all back.
"If Itigler had been tending to busi
ness he would have been watching Du
cev and Stock to see that they touched
all the liases. How does he know whether
one or both did not cut a base 10 or 15
feet If he had his eyes on the outfield?
"I have seen a lot of Incompetent um
piring In my time, hut It never was so
bad as It Is this season. They raised a
howl about the umpires under Tom Lynch,
claiming that they were upheld In every
thing and given too much power, but It
was nothing like It is now. President
Tener recently upheld the umpires when
several clubs protested against the work
of a few tlllclals. but no one knows why.
He evidently has not seen much of them.
"We are not protesting the game merely
to have It thrown out. Wa want It award
ed to us. We won It fairly and should
have It. No doubt President Tener will
uphold his umpires again, but If ha does
It is an outrage ; that is all I have to say,
Itigler hutted Into something that did not
concern him. while Harrison was sound
asleep, ns he always Is
"Harrison stood within two feet of Lou.
den when ho deliberately Interfered with
Klllefer when Neale was stealing In the
ninth Inning. We protested, but he said
he did not see It. I did not mind the
fact that Neale afterward scored the run
that put the lteds ahead or us, but be
cause Louden Jabbed Klllefer In the
shoulder with his bat, and the arm, which
was Injured last fall, was hurt again.
"There Is no telling how seriously Kllle
fer Is Injured. It is possible that a little
rub and a light workout today will
bring him around, but there also Is a chalice
that he will be ruined forever. You know
Klllefer's nrrn Is not any too strong yet,
although he has been throwing splendidly,
and any sort of an accident may put him
back where he was last fall.
"All I have to say Is that If the National
League does not get some umpires soon,
or take the chip oft the shoulders of those
they have now and make them work, the
fans ot several cities will not patronize the
team long. You have never heard me roast
an umpire before, but there is a limit to

was centered was senior doubles contest,
In which John B. Kelly and Walter Smith,
of the Vesper Boat Club, were forced to
take the wash of the crack Duluth pair,
A. O. Osmun nnd A. It. Kent. The Quaker
City rcprcsnntatlves wero out to retrieve
