STALLINGS
WONDER
BUT ADVANTAGE IS
WITH ATHLETIC BOSS
Major League Championships
Are Old Thing With Connie
Mack, New With Boston.
RUDOLPH TO BE STARTER
Cool Heeded. Seasoasa Slabater Ex
pected to Be Star of Berte Ittz
BrtTti; Colef to Cha&re Batters.
By Damon Iluuyon.
A wonderful fellow this Stalllnsrs.
He has taken mediocre ball players, be
baa taken the castoffa of other clubs;
be haa taken men appraised as minor
leaguers by most astute minds in the
sam; he haa taken the rag-tag and
bobtail of baseball and formed a cham
pionship club, and that feat approxi
mated baseball genius.
8tal lings is a marvel at making good
baiteball players' out of poor material
and a marvel at smashing a club along
at a winning gait when all the dope
proclaims that it should not win. The
theory that the Giants were over-confident
is all very well, but Stallings
waa saying his club would win at a
time when the Giants were playing I
uicir very rosi, una naming can de
tract from his victory. It was one ot
the greatest feats In the history of the
game.
In team leaders the advantage would
seem to be with the Athletics.
Time alone settles this question Of
superiority in baseball in that respect.
It would be Idle to say that George
Stalling is a better manager than
Connie Mack. One has Just captured
bis first big league pennant, the other
has taken flag after flag and led his
men to several world's pennants.
Comparisons Are Made.
They are of directly opposite types
In every way, in manner and in method,
but both are great constructive man
agers. There ls a difference between
constructive managers and Just man
agers.
Fran
rank Chance, for example, was a
good manager when he had good play
ers to manage,, but he failed when it
came 'to a matter of construction,
Connie Mack digs up and develops his
players snd makes them win, while
George Stallings goes out into the
bighways and byways of baseball and
takes men that other managers say are
worthless and wins with that kind.
He is a wonderful developer of
youngsters, the same as- Mack or Mc
Graw, 'but his forte seems to be in
team welding out of whatever material
happens to be at hand, for he has rare
ly had the chance to pick and choose
for himself like . the others. Today he
has a secondary strength coming on
behind his regulars that will make him
a contender In the National league for
years to come. i
The peculiar feature of the Braves is
that no one knows just what men can
be called Stallings regulars because he
shifts his line-up nearly every day.
It is very doubtful if Connie Mack
could dispense with his regulars in fhe j
on winning. It is doubtful If Connie'
Mack could have taken the' Braves and
won with them.
JMtchers Must Hold Braves.
As a baseball strategist ' Stallings
will, undoubtedly compare favorably
enough with Mack in a short series,
because after all. is said; anddone
it simmers down to a matter of
judgment and luck in choosing pitch
ers. It has been said that Stallings'
tope must lie in his pitchers in Ru
dolph, Tyler and James but the same
is true of Mack. His pitchers must
hold the Braves.
Rudolph, James and Tyler Are un
doubtedly Stallings' chief hope in the
series. If the Braves' pitchers can stop
those slashing sluggers of the -world's
champions the boys behind them will
surely get. a run or two off Bender,
Flank or any of the other Mack
hurl ere. Picking one of the three Bos
tonians, I should say that Little Dick
Rudolph, cool headed, seasoned and as
game as a pebble, will prove Stallings'
best bet, and I expect to see him start
the series.
Comparing the Athletics and the
Braves as clubs, placing the cum total
of their performance side by side, the
Bostonians get the worst of the fig
ures. Comparing the teams man for
man, and there is scarcely a single
angle of the dope that doesn't show to
the marked advantage of the Mackmen.
But then- the Cubs figured, on form, to
beat the Athletics when they met a
few years ago, and when the old Cub
machine was still a formidable organi
sation, and the Athletics won with
ease. The figures are useless.
Stuffy Mclnnis Is a better first base
man than "Butcher" Schmidt. Eddie
Collins is generally conceded to be the
greatest second baseman in the game
and perhaps the most valuable ball
player to his club of his generation,
not excepting Ty Cobb.
Brers Xs Fralsed.
Johnny Evers is a wonderful player,
and is undoubtedly the man who de
serves the greatest credit of any man
next to Stallings for the rush of the
Braves, but, nevertheless, I have an
idea that Collins gives the Athletics a
margin over their rivals at second.
Taking the campaign of Evers and
Maranville against Collins and Barry,
it is a somewhat different proposition.
Barry's experience is about his only
advantage over Maranville, and while
experience undoubtedly helps, it has
been shown in past struggles for the
title that it is not everything. As for
Frank Baker and Red Smith I thpk
the. advantage in Mack's favor is so
apparent that there need be no dis
cussion.
Connelly, the clouting outfielder of
the Braves, shapes up better than any
man in the Athletic outer garden, but
none of Stallings' other outfielders can
be considered better than the Mack-
men. Stallings will pursue his old ays
tem of switching left handed hitters
against right handed pitchers, and
right handed hitters against left
handed pitchers, which was the system
he used throughout the past season and
which appears to have its advantages.
Behind the bat I believe there is a dis
tlnct advantage with the Athletics.

Friday evening and Saturday enter
tained large crowds with piano solos
in the show window of Eilers musio
house, at Broadway and Alder. The
young musician manipulated the Ivor
lea with a skill that would have been
a credit to a performer of mature age
and much experience.
in a way the young artist is a
wunderkind." for at the age of S be
could strike chords on the piano and a
couple of years later he readily played
rrom memory pieces that he beard per
"jrmeo a rew times. He is the son or
Mr. and Mrs. B. E. King and is now
studying under a Portland teacher. His
ambition is to pursue his studies and
in a few years go to Europe for
broader experience.
young King is particularly ant at
improvising and has a large reper
toire of classical and popular music.
