greatly early In tho season, ns the coaches
know their men nnd the teams probably will
get off to a flying start and make a good
showing In tho practice games. Uut the
others aro bound to come to the front about
the middle of October, and then the real fun
will begin.
Task for New Coaches
It Is n dimcult matter for a coach t&
tako charge of a big college eleven these
days and mako good from the start. He
faces all sorts of handicaps, the principal
one being tho Installation of an entirely
new system to replace the one that has
been taught to tho players for two years
or more. He also Is confronted by a team
composed of strangers so far as an Inti
mate knowledge of their playing qualities Is
concerned. He takes chargo of what might
bo called a veteran cloven, ns no man Ib
eligible for tho team unless lie has been In
college at least one year.
When freshmen were allowed to play on
the varsity all of tho coaches had an even
chanco at the start. They could select
several promising players from the Incom
ing class, build tho team around them, If
necessary, or flx up a system of play which
would show them at their best. Freshmen
phonoma were quite common In those clays,
but those days have passed.
In modern football, tho coach has no
chanco to be surprised by the play of some
unknown who locks his freshman cap In Ids
locker, dons a football suit for tho flrst time
and trots out to practice. Tho unknown will
not oven get near tho varsity. Ho will be
herded with his class. The coach seldom
works on uncertainties, for ho knows at the
end of the season Just what men will be
avallablo for next year. He can plan a year
ahead. If ho cares to, and that Is the thing
mat gives me ouier conencs tho edge over
tno recent ones.
Changes Style of Play
A new tutor must mold a team from
Juniors and seniors who have played the
game differently than ho will teach It. and
tho sophomores, who wero on tho freshman
team tho year before, will havo tho samo
Ideas as tho others. Everything must bo
changed even the stylo of signals and It
will be some tlmo before things aro working
For thnt reason, it will not be wise to ex
pect too much from the now coaches at the
start. The flrst few games aro likely to bo
hard ones nnd close scores may result; but
remember, It takes time to get any strange
machine to run smoothly. Penn and Yale
will havo Bomo rough sledding In September
but wait until they get going good In tho
big games I
Former White Sox Slugger to
Join Athletics Next Spring,
It Is Reported
Ping Bodle, formerly with tho Chicago
Americans and now pastlmlng with the San
Francisco Pacific Coast I.eaguo team and
Incidentally, tho circuit's leading hitter, will
wear an Athlotlo uniform next season. This
announcement was made yesterday by
Harry Wolvprton, San Francisco manager
and former pilot of tho Yankees.
Connie Mack, lean leader of the A'b, ad
mitted last night thnt he had made an offer
for Bodle, but would not mention the terms
although he seconded the guess thnt the
amount would stretch Into five figures.
Mack has been anxious to obtain Uodle,
and news of Wolverton's announcement
that tho slugging Italian hnd been sold to
the A's pleased the Athletics' boss immense
ly. Ilodle will Join tho Macks next spring.
The addition of Bodle to the Mackmen
will add strength to tho club, both on the
defense nnd offense. When a member of tho
White Sox Bodle could "kill" a ball when
he'd hit it, but the gama was a secondarv
proposition with him. After being shipped
back to tha coast Bodle reformed and has
been hammering the ball to a fare-thee-well.
Bodle now Is paying attention to his
work, has taken oft virtually all of tha su
perfluous weight he sported while with tho
Sox and really Is playing a major league
brand of hall for the Seals.
The St. Louis Nationals have been trying
for some time to land Bodle.

Herbert Vollmer. of the. New York Athletic

Church Is ono of tho dark horses of
the season. Thero aro many who bollovo

Polish Grappler and Russian
Giant to Meet at Cen

Tho rather easy victory of Zbyszko, tho
mighty son of Poland, over tho gigantic
German, Franz Schultz. at Centra! Park
last Monday night, brought out n challenge

Tho Itusstan stands 0 feet 7 Inches In his

tho fact that ho was not In this country nt

Ignoxx is considered one of the most
formidable nsplrants for tho wrestling
championship, nnd tho outenmo of tho match
on Monday night will have a lot to do with
determining Just who is entitled to wear the

Phillies Feared Two-Game Series With Reds More
Than Any Other Scheduled on Final
Swing Around West , - '
PITTSnUROIt, Aug. 20. Absolute con
fidence prevails In the Phllly camp that tho
National League pennant will again fly In
Philadelphia. Manager Moran succeeded In
curbing nil pennant talk throughout the 1915
season and during the present campaign
until nftcr tho scries Just completed with
rinclnnnll. Now thero Is no stopping tho
men, They Insist thnt tho team will come
back home In first plncc. or so closo to It
that the Dodgers will bo eliminated before
Sdptember Is two weeks old
Tho Phillies feared tho two-game scries
with (ho rtetlt more than any scheduled for
tho western Invasion, tho renson being that
Manager Mathcwson made tho boast that
lie would havo Pete Schneider nnd Fred
Toney primed lo put a. stop to tho Phllly
spurt. Mntly rested this pair of great hurl
era nnd they were In better shape than nt
any other tlmo this season, but they could
not stop Mo rail's men.
Primed for Phils
It nppcars to be the habit of rival man
agers to prime nnd nurse their star hurl
era for games with tin? Phillies, but for
the last four weeks tho champions havo
treated all pitchers alike. All Mornn nsks
of Mathcwson now Is for him to prime
Tonny nnd Schneider for the Dodgers. If
this Is done Moran feels certain thnt two
moro games will bo picked up on the
Since Friday a week ago threo games
have been gained on Brooklyn and the
champions feel certain thnt two moro will
bo picked up this week. Moran has round
ed the pitching staff Into form Just in time
to Btnrt tho drive. Alexander and lllxey
are tho two leading pltchern of tho league,
with tho lanky southpaw showing Alex the
way by a slight margin, whllo Demarco
has n string of five straight victories nnd
Mnver Is back into form.
Ileticf pitchers nro likely to bo called
upon often In tho closing days of the race,
and Moran declares that "Chief" Bender
Is now In better shape than ho was nt any
tlmo during the 1914 senson when he was
tho leading pitcher of the American League.
Tho Fltchburg genius says thnt Bender Is
able to go the full route, but that ho will
bo saved exclusively for relief work.
Mornnmen Speeding
The dizzy paco sot by tho Dodgers until
the Inst 10 days has calmed the fans to
1080 sight of the fact that tho Phillies aro
moving along faster than at any time dur
ing the 1915 season. Nineteen out of the
lafft 24 games havo resulted In victorles
and only two pitchers have been beaten
since tho winning streak startod. Oddly
enough two of tho games wero lost by Alex
ander, who is right now In tho greatest
form of his career.
Personally we believe that tho Phillies
will win tho pennant with several games to
sparo. Wo base our belief upon the con
dition of tho two men upon whom tho
greater part of tho pitching burden will fnll
during the last three weeks of the campaign.
At this time a year ago Alexander the
Great weighed oxnetly 17E pounds, and
already was showing the strain. At the
present tlmo tho Nebraskan tips tho beam
nt 191 pounds. When tho drive starts
Alexander can stand losing 15 pounds and
will bo Just as strong ns he was in the
closing days of tho race last year.
Rixey Gains "Weight
The samo Is true of Itlxey. The lanky
southpaw lacked confidence! and weight last
senson, but Is now weighing 208 pounds,
which Is 18 pounds moro nt nny time last
season. If It comes to u pinch Alexander
and Illxoy can work evory other day with
out feeling the grind for a few weeks.
Conditions nre exactly the opposlto in
the Brooklyn camp. While Robinson has
shown five men who have pitched consistent
ball to date, he also must depend upon two
men In a pinch. Ho has two high-class
hurlers In Pfeffer and Cheney, but both
aro below their normal weight and are
likely to crack nt any time
When the Athletics wero In Daytonn
playing Brooklyn during tho training sea
son, wo happened to seo Pfeffer step on tho
scales. He weighed exactly 200 pounds.
Ho carried this weight until about ono
month ago and was In perfect condition ;
but now he is down to 192, according to a
Phllly player, who saw him weigh In
Brooklyn Just before the western trip
started. Cheney also has lost considerable
weight, and It Is likely that Robinson's
stars will find the going rough In the last
Tho fans also are losing sight of the fact
that the Dodgers were within one-half u
game of the Phillies on Labor Day last
year, but finished five games In the rear
If Brooklyn holds Its present lead until
Labor Day, It will bo n hard task for the
Phils to win, but we do not think they win
be leading two weeks from today.
Machine-Like Play
Tho machine-like play of the Phillies is
beginning to assert itself. The defense has

boon wonderful nnd, while the hlttlhg has
been rather light, the ability to take ad
vantage of the opposing team's mistake
and the expert uso of plays designed to
tally o. rlln at n tlma has enabled tha
champions to scoro more than the average:
number of runs for a long stretch of games.
Defensively tho work of tha Inftold has
been remarkable. Dave Bancroft Is cover
ng a world of ground nnd making Beem
ingly Impossible plnj-B, whllo Nlehoff Is
compiling ono of the greatest records in
years, which Is another point entirely over
looked by the fans.
In the Clnclnnatl-Phllly game now
under protest Nlehoff wns credited with an
error by the olllclnl scorer when Neale pil
fered second and eventually scored tho
winning run. Several scorers. Including tho
writer, did not give Nlehoff the error,
Without that mlsplay charged against him,
iMiohorf has not made n mlscuo in 23 con
secutlvc games, having accepted over 120
chances, which Is one of the greatest rec
ords In years.
In Physical Shape
Kvcry player on the Phllly team Is In per
fect physical condition. Tha usual "sliding
strawberries," twisted muscles and bruises
nro unknown in tho Phllly camp and they
nre better prepared for tho final drive than
tho Dodgers nnd Braves. Great credit is
duo Trainer Mlko Deo for the splendid con
dition of tho men.
Mlko now has Cravath In perfect shnpe.
despite the fact thnt the club phyBlelan said
that It would be two weeks before the slug
ging outfielder would be ablo to burden his
Injured foot with his grent wolght, and
Gavvy Is due to start slugging. He has hit
several balls hard, thus far on tho trip, and
nlways Is In n good humor, which Is a
sign that Cravath's confidence has returned.
Cincinnati scribes who have been touting
tho Dodgers throughout the season havo
switched to tho Phils and veteran critics,
such us Jack Ryder and Bob Newhall. de
clare that "class will tell and tho Phillies
have It."
