Stars of Old White Elephant Machine Which Won Four Pennants In Stretch of Five Years Are Replaced by Youngsters. Unbe OJdring, persuaded to come ont of retJrrmPiit by Connie Mi-ck this season, is tlie only player on the Mnckian roster who was actively engaged In the pennant-winning campaign of 3014 when the Athletics won their last American League streamer. Gone are tho star*; of tlie old White Elephant machine which rolled through the American ]?«£ue, -winning four pennants In a stretch of five years, nnd in their places are phiycrs npon whom Mark is depending to rcpaln the laurels of hit once fnmous cluh. Tlie onco famous Infield of the old Mackmen coraposetl of Baker, Barry, Collins and McTnnia, has been replaced by Bnrns, Gardner, Shannon and Dug-aji. Enter iJ \\lth the Ynnks, Collins witli the Wl.ite Sox, Mclnnig Trv*ilh Boston and Barry In the navy- The old Athletic outfield has faded rnvay completely. Strnnk has been sent to the Bed Sox and Oldnns has be« j n u?ed us a pinch hitter for the most part since comlag back to the club. Bender, Bnsh, Coombs, Plnnk, Fen- noctc, Slmwkey, Wyckoff and Bressler were the mainstays of Muck's pitch- In^ stuff only four years ago, yet not one of them is wearing a Philadelphia uniform. Bender is hplplns Uncle Sara build ships at Hoy Island. Bnsh is with the Tied Sor, Coombs with Brooklyn, Bressler with the Reds, Plank retired nnd Pennorb. Slmwkey nnd WyckofE in the service. Lapp, Sclmner and Thomas, catchers, have also passed along Schnng being the only one still classed as a star. McA\oy, «ho was w i t h the club In 1014, was a fourth string catcher at the time and is now dolni; half the backstopping for the rejuvenated cluh Gardner, Walker and Cady. from BoPtoo ; .Taimeson, from Wa*-hinptoG ; Burns, from Detroit, and Gregg and Kopp, from the International league, have stepped into the shoes left vacant by Mack's many deals within two years. In short the Athletics are perfectly camouflaged. *****»*******»*#*********# t TY COBB, IN 32D YEAR $ J IS BEST DRAWING CARD J * · * J Tj Cot/! Is In I)is thlrty-socond ^ J year.
