PITCHERS SELECTED BY TY COBB' TO COMPRISE STAFF ON HIS ALL-TIME, ALL-STAR AGGREGATION Cold and Gale Hampers , the Jumpers Distance, 83 Ft Best Showing Against Record ot 101 Ft Davidson Finishes Fourth Place m By WILLIAM H. CLARK QFEBFC. Que. Fell 21 With J rero cold and a stiff i ga'e howling, the international j ski Juni'dng contest of Qne' ey I here this afternoon was not a success. Out of 22 entries, so stiff was the going, ll fell by the wayside r.n.l I of the two entries from tb Cnitcd States, member of the Xansen Ri , Club of Berlin. X II, only one finished j and he wras relegated to fourth place. j Hardly a man went over witlio r a spill and many were slightly inpirvd ! as they rolled and slid to the bottom of the steep declevity over which the jump I was made. The severity of the d.iv is j shown by the fact that the best jump was only S3 feet whereas the record i is 101 leet, made by Ivand Nelson of Revelstoke, last year. Hugged the Stove The day was terrifically hard upon what few spectators dared to brave the weather, particularly upon the few Boston and New York people who came out. A small wooden shack with a decrepit stove was provided as a dressing room for the jumpers, but this was preempted by the visitors. ; many of whom, instead of watching for'the spectaVors, but'only a few Bat m them and then only momentarily the jumps, cowered inside by the stove, which was heated until it glowed like a cherry. The crowd about this tiny spark of warmth was so great that the jumpers themselves could not get anywhere near it. -Bleacher seats were provided hetween bieathing (spells in the shack save ears and noses from being npped . XL 'befet jump. 83 feet, was made by I c 1eIlis of Ottawa, while K. David-' son of Bpriini N H, and E. Larsen of. Three Rivers. Que. both came ext with a jump of 82 feet.

I have made of the old-not see, with the out during my 21 game. In this way l have formed an opinion as to merit, based on the ability of players to deliver the goods over five or more years in actual competition. This is not so easy to do as the outsider might think. For example, when I broke in the pitchers were using their fast hall high, with a good curve and change of pace. The spitball had just been introduced effectively-by Jack Chesbro and veH soon there wag a sprinkling of spit-ballrs in both big leagues. Then Bill Donovan, Addle Joss afid Fred Glade were so successful with their new style that there was a wave of C. Pell and Stanley W. J glde-arm pitching.

In the firet and second game he took the lead at the service working accounted for hU trailing in the third arhe. In the fourth, however, he settled down In that department and soon brought the match to a close, winning the game, 1512. Mortimer was not forced to extend I himself to beat Pearson. He took the opening game, 150, and then taking the following two ga'mes each 1512, !o eliminate, the Philadelphia player.

Time team is based on what personal 4 observations 1 have been able to majte an(j on information gathered i by conversation and correspondence with some of the' best authorities wie have different forms of pitching they had to face. Old Pitchers Superior It is my firm belief that with few exceptions, especially since the spit-ball came Into vogue,, that there have been no pitchers with as much ability as those of 15 or 20 years ago. The system of pitching changed so radically that the delivery became unnatural and was wearing on the arm. Tills was particularly true during that long siege ot trick pitching which included the emery ball, the knuckle ball and the shine ball. Another thing to be conf Idered Is that most very pitcher coming into the game 15 or 20 years ago had to work himself up through the various minor leagues. When he reached yie major leagues he was mathewsok Cobb mentals like the fast ball, the slow ball and the curve. It is my prediction that if trick pitching is completely barred for a period of years there a return to the old styles of pitching. Then there will appear pitchers who may rank with those that I have named for the best of all times: Mathewson, Itusie, Young, Nichols, Johnson, Alexander, Breitenstein and Plank. The present day fan still marvels at the; ability and endurance of Mathewson, Johnson, Alexander and Plankx They starred over a long period. Rusie, Young, Nichols and Breitenstein, a little farther back, were of the same caliber, enduring for- many years against all clubs and the hardest of conditions. I am aware that my judgment on Plank might be questioned, " but I stick by it. He was a man of the best habits in his everyday life and was" absolutely dependable. His high winning percentage covered a long period. Passes Over Waddell I will grant that Rube Waddell had phenomenal ability at times, had a wonderful physique and had lots of stuff on anything that lie pitched. To my way of thinking, though, Waddell had no place on a team like this. Waddell would not sland up under punishment I have known him to lose his head and toss away a ball game or have to be taken out of the box If some batter happened to slash a line drive through the box. The Detroit club had a regular system of getting him out of the boj by drugging the ball to the first baseman, forcing Waddell to cover the bag nd eliding Into him. As a rule, wien that happened he was through for the day. lie didnt like the gaff. There Is little use In my enumerating the wonderful points of the other pitchers I have selected. I do want to add one thing, though. I consider Cy Young one of the greatest pitching machines I ever have seen. Just to give you an Idea: He won more Geover. Alexan pep That Is more games than most of the pitchers of the last 20 years have even pitched in. In other words. Young won more games than many of the great stars ever pitched. Christy Mathewson was another of the Young type. Not only did he pitch well at times, but he pitched often. I . will devote a little more space to a game that I saw him pitch in a subequent article. In my next article I will lake up my selection of the catchers of all time and give my reasons for naming them. I will also attempt to make clear my reasons for putting Chase. Hornsby. Collins, Wagner, Speaker and Jackson on the All-Star, .All-Time Ball Club. Continued Tomorrow (Copyright.- 1D2G. by Christy Walsh Syndicate.) JONES ANDTrMOUR WIN SIXTHSTRAIGHT Beat Hagen and Nicholls on Florida Course ST PETERSBURG, Fla. Feb 21 (A. P.) Bobby Jones, national amateur champion, and Tommy Armour, representing the Whitfield CXu.b of Sarasota. won their sixth straight victory today when they defeated Walter Hagen, national professional champion, and Gil Nlcholls. 4 and 3. in an 18-hole match at the Pasadena Country Club coursel The match was the first in the Jones-Hagen series and was a curtain raiser to tie 72-hole singles which these two stars are to play starting at the Whitfield Club next Sunday and to he finished at Pasadena on March 7. v Today's match was scheduled for 36 holes, but Hagen was taken ill Saturday night and his phvsician refused to allow him to play this morning. He played in the afternoon until the match was decided and then .left the course add was ordered to bed and visitors were not allowed to see him. He was determined to play the match.

Willie Iloppe, for 16 years champion of the bnlkline billiard game and present title-holder In the 18.1 division, tomorrow begins a three-day lWO-point 18.1 match here with Jake Hhaefer. 18 2 champion.

The Crimson ' led in seven contests in sport on Saturday. Congratulations are due to Coach E. L. Bigelow of the Harvard hockey team. Few hockey followers expected early in the season that he could possibly produce a winner, and yet he has accomplished the seemingly impossible. That victory over Dartmouth Saturday night was worth an II. Beaming a team that was ' generally considered to be the best of year among colleges was a notable stunt. - 3Vho is the miracle man behind the Bruins great dive from the cellar towards the top? y Bostons "Royal Rooters" have good reason to pose as mascots for the Bruins. A hockey player in the bullpen is of no ta?e to his team. The Bruins have had far fewer penalties since they started their drive. They are out on the Ice playing the game and that is one of the secrets of their success. Reggie McNamara Is a great man to pair with in a Eix-day-bicycle race. A few weeks ago he won a great six-day race In Berlin and now he has just captured another first place in a race in Chicago. A man, who has a record of winning nine six-day races, is entitled to be called an "iron man. A two-mile , a limited handicap has been added to the . card for the New York A. C. games tomorrow night. The 'race is billed to give Willie Ritola a chance to go after Paavo Nurmi's wonderful record of 8:58 1-5. It does not , seem possible that he can turn the trick. Local Interest in. the Baxter mile at the New York A. C. meet tomorrow night is someyvhat quickened by the fact that Willard Tibbetts of Harvard and South Boston, ' and Jimmy Connolly, formerly of Woburn, are the leading contenders. Yale has accepted a challenge to run against the University of Maryland relay team in the Johns Hopkins-Fifth Regiment games in Baltimore next Sat- urday night. The same teams meet in the New York A. C. games Tuesday night. There are two well-matched schoolboy half-milers over ;in New York. In the Syracuse schoolboy meet Saturday, Arthur Rosner of New Utrecht High and Jerry. Gormans of Manual High, had a great battle to the tape in the "880. Rosner won by two yards in 1:58 4-5. Frank Labes, also of New Utrecht High, put the 12-pound shot 53ft Tin. Both are new national interscholastic ' indoor records. As early bifld in yachting, Charles A. Welch 2d, the well-known Corinthian of Marblehead, takes the blue ribbon. Saturday he had his auxiliary ketch, Stormy Petrel, put overboard in Marblehead Harbor, and yesterday morning with a party of yachting friends he sjt sail for Gloucester. He was accompanied by Francia Herreshoff, Fred Russell and George Coffin. This is the earliest sailing from Marblehead for n number of years. ALONSO GETS TO FINALS IN TENNIS AT BUFFALO BUFFALO.
