Bender Considered for Rochester Managership
PUESIDISNT CI I API N, of tho Rochester International League club, denies that
Larry Lajolo has been selected to manage tho Ilronehos next season. Ho uny.i
that ho seriously Is considering "Chief" liendor nnd Charley Dooln, with chances

Proposed Changes In World's Series Plana Good
THE suggestion by Carry Herrmann nnd sovcral other National League mag
pates that tho world's scries be played under entlroly different conditions In tho
future Is not n bud. Idea, According to a statement mado by Herrmann before
."" the league went Into session today, he suggests that, Instead ot playing four out
ot seven gamys, the series be oxtended to live out of nlno. In this wuy, Herrmann
thinks, nnd very properly, many moro fans will bo ablo to seo thu games
4 than under tho present arrangement, when tho aeries rarely extends over
lx games and which has not exceeded flvo since tho famous Giants-Red
Box clash In 1913. Another good suggestion mado by Herrmann wus that the
'""W prices bo lowered. No doubt a j?reat deal of the scandal attending all world's
"; series games would be eliminated if tho number of games was extended and
- the prices lowered.
M Division With the Clubs Not In the Scries
HEIUlMANN'tf Idea of having the players of the winning teams In tho Amorlcnn
nnd National Leagues split up their -world's series money among the playera
of the Clubs finishing second, third and fourth Is not a particularly brilliant ono.
There would be a lot of dlisatlsfactlon rauscd among tho men belonging to tho
clubs In the second division If that wero the case, While It seems hard that only
tho winners of the two leagues should share In tho world's scries, there Is nn
-v ' more reason why tho second division players should be excluded than that the
first division clubs be Included.

De Neri'a Poor Showing Hurts Basketball
il. 1 !T,HH Poor showing of the l5e Nerl. Eastern league, basketball team this season
-t-has unquestionably hurt the cage game. However, the Interest In this sport
$n Philadelphia Is so deeply rooted that its popularity will not be materially
iyientc4 in splto of the fallura of Bouthwark fans to stand by tho Musical Funders.
Followers of basketball In the vicinity of Eighth and Locust streets have been
us loyal an any one could reasonably expect. Hut a management cannot hope
that the tcam'd rooters will atana for
. j latently as He Neri has this year. Manager Amorose BUdley's team has won
but on same nnd the team. Is worse now than It was nt the beginning of the
tswuson. Therefore, If the rumor that the franchise haa been sold Is true, It
Wilt be a good thing for basketball in general and the Kastern League In par.

Greys' Great Finish
In Trenton last night tha Qreyetock five
forged ahead of the enemy In the cloalng
minutes of play and nosed out the home
club, ST to SI, It was due largely to the
fine work of Ray Cross, who Is getting to be
a perennial star at field and goal shooting,
The Greystock guard held Doc Newman to
a pair of field gouls while he hlmeelt came
through with six. It must bo said, how
ever, that Newman played en excellent
floor game, and Cross had all he could at
tend to In keeping up with the former Da
Klnkalde. who declared some time ago
that he would never don a basketball uni
form, was In the Trenton line-up, Although
he has not been playing In the Kastern
league this season, Dudley's old guard did
very well and showed that It will not take
long to get back to the form which made
htm In times gone by one of the moat de
pendable men that ever played on the De
Nerl five '
Manager Joe patley stood pat on his regu
lar II no. up. Since last Friday night, when
Trenton defeated the dreys at Cooper Hall
because Mike AVItson was substituted for
Jack Lawrence, It has apparently become
evident to the Orey management that the
shift should not be repeated. In their ef
forts to stave off defeat in their home cage,
the Trenton team used seven players.
