I know that Tat Moran la leading a well-balanced well-balanced well-balanced well-balanced club. To win the National League pennant this year the Reds had to be a strong club defensively as well as a iiard-battlng iiard-battlng iiard-battlng team. But we had to have something to win the American League cnanvionahip. I tnink we experienced stiffer competition in our league than uie Reds did in tneirs.

'WE ARE CONFIDENT OF VICTORV-MORAN VICTORV-MORAN VICTORV-MORAN Special to The Sew York Times. CINCINNATI. Sept. 27." We are confident, but not overconfident." said Manaeer Fat Moron of the National League champions, when asked for an opinion on the outlook for his team in tho coming world's series. " It has never been my habit to make any predictions predictions on events of this kind, even on single games of ball. The record of e Reds, however, speaks pretty well j for Itself. '. " The boys won the pennant by de-1 de-1 de-1 cislvely defeating the Giants, their r neaxeat rivals, in the last three series between the two teams. They took the I lead from the Giants on Aug. 1 and I never relinquished It. Two weeks later the Reds won four out of six from the Glahts the Polo UMPIRES OIL DP THEIR INDICATORS Rigler Reaches His Sixth Series and This Year Will Be Billy Evans's Fifth. Umpiring in the coming world's series probably will seem a bit strange to Billy Evans, one rf the American League arbitrators in the big games. It is nothing new for Evans, as this is his fifth appointment as umpire in the big baseball classic, but he will miss j two familiar figures who were associ- associ- ! ated with him in all Ids previous teris. i One Is Frank O Loughlln. the I lamented " Silk " who an.-wired an.-wired an.-wired the call i of the Great I'miJlre last December. The other is RIU Kl-m. Kl-m. Kl-m. who Is about to miss his third series since 1908. Evans got his first chance in 1909. with O'Loughlin as his American League partner. These two drew the assignments assignments again j In 1912. 1913. and 1917. Klcm and Jimmy Johnstone were the National League umpirej in UWO. In uip other series Evans and Johnstone nad as partners Klem and Rigler ahd lu the series which opens at Cincinnati on Wednesday Rigler and Evans will meet again. Bill Klem has been the most fortunate fortunate umpire in picking world's series plums, which have been worth $1,000 per series in recent years, the 1918 series excepted, when all stipends were ut in half owing to war conditions and reduced prices of admission. Klem got his first call In 1908 and he haa officiated officiated at all world's series since that year with the exceptions of 1010 and 1916. Last Fall, when the Red Sox .cfeated the Cubs, Klem worked in his ninth world's series. Next to Klem comes Hank O'Day with seven series. Hank worked In the BOTH CLUBS HAVE ; BATTING STRENGTH :.'

It Is pretty generally agreed that the pitching in the corning world's, series .will be better than the average. That means that the rival hitters will have their hands full. Looking .over the array of pitching talent on both sides it becomes apparent that the hit ters will face a bit of every kind of pitching. There will be left and light handers, slralght-sway slralght-sway slralght-sway pitchers who depend for success on a fast ball Vnd a curve, and trick pitchers who resort' to the spit ball, shine ball. and. other freak deliveries that have become. So popular during the past few years. ..
