Is much more remarkable than would
appear from mere futures. Mnlhewson
Is today tied in number of games won
with the rhllly pitcher, but It must be
remembered that Hatty has. had a tnm

The difference between the team play

difference in thoso tlgiircs Is moie than
accounted for by the fact that the Giants

Seelback, Inst year's basketball cap
tain and end on tho Pennsylvania foolbnll
team, has reported. Ho Is In great Bhnpe
and pounds heavier. Lusl year ho suffered
from a broken shoulder which kept lum
out most ot tho year. TJarrlng nnother
such accident ho will bo a strong ciuull
date for tho Penn eleven.
Wray, star llncmnn of last year's fresh
man team, nlso made his nppcaranee, nnd
was sent to "Ily" Dickson as an end
possibility. Ho weighs ISO pounds and la
extremely swift-footed.
"Vic" Ilallou, last year's scrub quarter
back, got out his togs and made his initial
showing of the season. Jones nlso was
among tho day's arrivals. Ho has been
BUtnmciIng at n Maine camp. Ho played
a splendid lino plunging game Inst yoir on
tho sciiib eleven. Ho Is a half-back pos
sibility. The sqtiml wns put through practice
both in tho morning and afternoon. It
Is evident that Coach Urooko Is not
going to leave a thing undone to make
It a winning season. Hrookc continued
his practice of tho day before, giving the
bnck tudlmoittary practice In running
with tho ball, laying paitlculnr emphasis
on the handling of the pigskin. Among
the candidates Jones, Mathews, Hughes
and Tlgh gave good promise. "Dy" Dick
son continued his training of the ends.
It la evident from tho number of men
'assigned to" him that his work of tilling
lnvthe wings Is a hard one. Wray and
Cnrtcr displayed good speed for their
size. Murdoch. Is bock and after his old
plnce. He hasValncd 10 pounds and hns
Improved In speed. Ulg Koons Is also
In good condition. Urquhait nnd Gott
wals did some great work In handling
forward passes.
Despite the fnct that the tresnman can
has not been rounded, the yearlings con
tinue to appear.
Hayes and Hendrens May Not Play
Football This Season.
Owing to the absence of Coach John
son, only a short football practice waa
held by Northeast High yesterday. Cap
tain Webb set the men to work tackling,
while a signal practice wa3 also held.
Chiefly kick and forward-pass formations
ensued. A flftecn-mlnutc scrimmage was
held between the Varsity and Scrub",
In which none of tho veterans took part.
It was learned that little hone Is en
tertained that Hayes and Hendrens will
bo able to play for Northeast this sea
jwi. Hayes, last year's centre, was
stricken with typhoid and has only an
even chnngo of recovery. There is no
possibility of Ids returning to the game.
Hendrens, who played fullback last year,
Is back In his studies.

sprinter and Joint holder of the intercol
legiate record of 9 1-5 seconds for 100

The HUDSON Six-40 for 1915 weighs 2,890
pounds a seven-passenger car.
Built by old standards, such a car would weigh
around 4,000 pounds.
Cars are all being built lighter, still no other
maker has attained this lightness yet. So some
will argue that sturdy cars can't be a3 light as this.
But thousands of these cars went out last year.
In thousands of hands, on all sorts of roads, not
a single shortcoming developed. Never has a car
proved stauncher.
The difference is simply this:
Aluminum takes the place of cast iron. Drop
forgings take the place of castings. Better design
ing combines strength with lightness in a thousand
details. One, for instance, is a tubular propeller
No More Over -Tax
Needless weight was a heavy over-tax on tires.
HUDSON engineers have stopped it. In addition,
their new-type motor cuts fuel cost 30 per cent.
Expense excess is out-of-date. The day of
modest size and power and price has come. This
new-model HUDSON typifies the car of the future.
It is one of the handsomest cars ever built. It
has many attractions found in no other car
beauties, comforts and conveniences.
48 engineers headed by Howard E. Coffin
have devoted four years to this car. Come and
see the advances the scores of new things they've
