In th season of 1113 Unltei Johnson
was credited with the los of IKo games
With nearly another month to go before
the 1511 campaign closes, the speed king
has dropped IT contests. Has Johnson
lost lili speed? Has ho lost tho nit of
putting the Jump on tho ball" The play
ers say not. What then Is the matter?
Control and a dendt.v fear of killing u
An) man with Johnsons control can
prevent hitting a batsman if ho chooses.
Johnson docs choose, and what Is moie
to the point, the batters know It. It wni
during the eail) stages of the present
race that the first stories of Johnson s
fear of hitting batters were published.
Thes. aitlclcs, printed by piaetlcally
even newspaper In the cotintr), contained
the statement of the Washington hurler
that he would quit baseball forever If he
should kill a man with n pitched boll
This, naturall), gave tho batters con
fidence, for there Is no doubt that John
son's eftectlvcness was due, to ft large
extent, to the fact that the would -b
hlttei3 pulled away from tho ptate, and
In so doing lobt their too hold, as It were.
N'ow tho mnjorit) of battels In the
American League know that Johnson Is
not going to attempt to use the ' bean
ball" on them, and furthermore, that his
control Is so wonderful that the chances
for being hit are small
That this fear of being hit Is a matter
which affeots batters to a very large ex
tent is shown time and again, especially
in the early spring Let n manager send

more than 60 eager candidates fighting
for flvo vacancies on l'cim State's foot
ball team, tho outlook for n successful
season Is most encouraging. Determined
to forget the disastrous closing of tho
1S13 schedule, the coaches and players
hnvo taken on n. most optimistic air.
They aie encouraged by the splendid
miidltlon of tho eight varsity men of
last )cnr's team, and are suro that two
halfbacks, two guards and a tackle aro
tn bo developed readily from the string
of well-coached schoolbo)s who have re
ported for the preliminary pinctlce.
Conches Harlow and Hollcnback arc
confronted by two problems the satis
factory development of a loft tnckle,
around whom State's offensive play Is
to bo const! uctcd, and a quarterback to
succeed Captain "Shorty" Miller, who
was graduated last June. Uy shifting
to left tacklo Levi Uimb, Penn State s
bulwark on tho right wing, the first
puzzling problem would be solved cnslly.
Hut for tho fear of weakening the right
side of tho line by Lamb's removal,
Coach Dick Harlow Is reluctant to make
the chnnge. Should nil other alterna
tives fall. Lamb may play the left wing
Captain Tobln Is first choice for the
quarterback vacancy. His wide football
experience, nnd his adaptability to back
flcld positions give him the llrst call.
At present he Is pln)lng the position
satisfactorily. He Is directing the eleven
with judgment and hnndllng forward
passes cleverly. Next to Tobln. Lvvlng.

Because of the Great War
He Believes His Contract
to Coach Germany's Ath
letes Is Ended.
Tho European war hag made avallab!,
for some American university ono of th
best football trnlnera and track and fitld
coaches In America. Thla Is Alvln C
Krncnzlcln, the fomer University
Pennsylvania all-around athlete, who was
engaged a year ago to coach the German
Olympic tenm. Kraonideln left Berlin
but a few days before the great struggls
for a two months' leave ot absence. H
was two days out at sea. when war was
declared, and no ono was more surprised
than ho over the outbreak of hostilities
Although ho still haa two years of his
contract to fulfill, Kraonslcln thinks him
work in Germany ts dono for tho present.
"I haven't heard a word from the Ger
man Olympic Commltteo since I left,"
said Krnensleln yesterday. "In view ol
tho fact that every young man between
the ages of 19 and 24. and a good many
younger and older, are now engaged In
tho war, there wouldn't be any athletlo
team thcro even If thcro wore any time
to think about such things. No matter
how the war results, It will take so much
money, time nnd men to recoup from
this struggle that all Kinds of sports will
have tough sledding thcro for a good
many )ears to come.
"My plans for the Immedlato future ar
not at all deilnlto, but In the absenco of
further news from Germany I am going
to stay right here. It Is possible that
I will do some coaching nt some Amer
ican college during tho coming year.
Asked as to the results of his first
j car's work In Germany, Dr. Krnenileln
could not npeak specifically.
"My first year's work In Germany was
entirely educational," he continued. "I
went over the biggest part of Germany,
visiting many of the schools, colleges and
clubs. With the assistance of the German
Olympic Committee I was able to give
Instruction In tho various events to the
ofllclals of n great many clubs and other
Institutions. These men In turn gave In
structions to the )ouug men under them,
and we hoped to see definite results from
this bort of missionary work within an
other year. I was not able to do very
much actual work with Individuals,
though I did find a few who looked prom.
Islng enough."
Those who saw the Olympic games at
Stockholm two years ngo will be disap
pointed to learn that the running days of
Hans Hraun, the phenomenal German
middle distance runner, are apparently
over Dr. Kraenzleln states that Ilraun
suffered from rheumatism to such an ex
tent that he can hardly train any longer.
