CHICAGO HERE "FOR SERIES WITH PHILLIES-HEAT RETARDING FOOTBALL TRIALS'
HERE TO BATTLE
Interest Locally Now Cen
tred in Boston and New
York, Where Crucial
Games Are Being Staged.
Though the Chicago Cuba are on deck
here this afternoon with the Phillies,
the. chief local Interest will be centred
In the games In Boston and Now York,
where the Braves and Giants are mak
ing their respective fights for the pen
nant. Just how little the local fans care
about the results of the games at the
Phllly park Is shown dally by the con
stant applause which the scoreboard
draws when the results of each Xew
York and Boston Inning are put up.
While the pitching yesterday In the
last game with St. Louis was not hlch
class by any means, the Phillies should
again have won out easily, and would
have but for wretched work on the bases.
In the last Inning, with one run needed
to tie, Pnskert singled and attempted
to take third on an overthrow. He had
no chance to make the bag, and why he
should have taken such a long chnnce
nt that stage Is known only to himself.
He was Just as good at second as ho
was at thltd and Incidentally he would
have scored the tying run if he hud
etaod at second.
Game after game has been lost this
season by the Phillies Just by this same
lack of foresight on the part of the base
lunners. The fact that the men are not
fast on the paths hurts, of com so. but
they would have done far bettor if thev
had used a little Judgment Instead of
trying to get away with something that
Mould tax a bunch of regular base
runners. At the Phllly-Cardlnal game yester
day were "Brick" Mclnnls. first base
man, and Izzy Hoffman, manager of the
Reading Trlstnte club. "Brick" Is a
bi other of "Stuff 5 " and Is an exact
duplicate of the Athletics' first sucker.
Brick Is now waiting around Philadel
phia for tile world's series. He l In
fine shape, and Manager Huffman stated
that "Brick" had displajrd wondoiful
Improvement this season nt Reading.
He had a good start, training at Jack
sonville with the Mackmen.
Just what havoc taes on balls will
do is shown by the record of Miller
Hugglns in the five games. The Car
dinal leader has been passed a dozen
times and has scored V times after get
ting on first by the walk route In ye
terday's game Hugglns drew three passe
and was hit by a pitched ball, giving
him a perfect day In strolling.
NOT HAYE CHANCE
TO TAKE REST
Close Race in American
League Likely to Keep
Regulars in Action Until
Few Days Before Series.
CHICAGO, Sept. 23 Another hiatus in
the American League schedule today gives
Connie Mack, who has Just arrived hore
from Cleveland, a chance to do much
thinking and more planning. A glance
at the percentage column Indicates that
unless the Mnckmcn clean up the re
mainder of their games In the nest the
regulars will not have the opportunity to
get their usual rest before the World's
Last season the pennant was won
mathematically, In time for all of the
champions who needed a lay-off to take
It. That thH method resulted In Im
proved play In the series was evident
from the results of thi- five games. Again
this season Mack planned to have his
men take plenty of time off to get In
shape, but he was a trlilo doubtful to
day as to the possibility of so doing.
Bender and Plank, who will again bear
the bruhl of the pitching In the series,
assuming alva s that the Athletics win
the pennant, will get their rest If no one
else does. These men have rntltely dlf
feient methods of getting In shape for
an event of this kind. Bender using his
time In driving the golf balls on the
links of the Bnla Club in Philadelphia,
occasionally handling the baseball for a
few minutes. Plank, on the other hand,
tukes n complete lest, going to his home
In the hills on the outskirts of Gettys
Mack does not hnv- any set method
of training his men for the setles. He
allows each one to get In shape the way
he thinks best, and with a band of such
high-grade athletes on his toster, the
leader Is sure that when the day comes
for the final tost each man will bo in
the best shao of the season, barrlns
Just how he will line his men for the
world's series Mack did not say today,
but It Is thought among the players that
lie will send them In just as he did in
1911. This batting order follows Murphv,
Oldrlnc, Collins, Baker. Mclnnls, Sttunk,
Barry, catcher, pitcher.
In the game yesterday In Cleveland,
when the Mackmen completely over
whelmed the Naps, Mack deviated fiom
the line-up as shown above. He dropped
Baker below Stiunk and put OUlrlng In
his usual position, batting second In
the games prior to lesteiduv Oldring i
had been hitting below Strunk, and Bany '
had been In second place
Baker hap not been hitting as he micht i

Career of a Football Player

Last fall Captain Ketcham, of the
Yale football team, made himself ridicu
lous by stating that be would not con
sent to the player of old Ell belne
numbered for the benefit uf the spec
tators, because tho game was not
pla-ed for their bentflt. but for the
glory of the alma mater, or words to
that effect. Naturally eveiy one laughed
at the Idea. It would not be possible
for a college foothall team today to
exist without the aid of the public
And by the public the student body
Is not meant The students of nearly
eery college get an exceedingly cheap
rate to all athletic contests. It Is the i
outside public which supports football,
just as It supports baseball Hence the
public has some rights. One of theii
rights Is to know who Is plaj-lng. In
the past, particularly since the rules
have been changed &o that players may
be taken out of the game and put in
again, these frequent changes ha,e
made It impossible for the spectators
and often the reporters, to follow the
plays correctly, because It was Impos
sible to distinguish the players. Penn
has at last seen that the numbering of
players Is essential. The Red and Blue
people realize that if thej must have
attendance the games must be prop
erly reported by the newspapers. To
properly cover them, the men reporting
the game must know who is playing.
Any one who saw the Indlan-Penn game,
the Princeton-Harvard or the Army
Navy games will understand thoroughly

for 1915 will be held In Falrmount Park.
Tho association has dellnltoly approved
tho system of rotation, and evory nnl

Pennsylvania olono excepted, has been
given this meet. It has been held at
Princeton several times, twice at Boston

under the auspices of Columbia Uni

awarded to Ynle, and will bo held at New

Pennsylvania hns at her door ono of
the most Ideal cross countrj' courses in
America, and one that Is probably ns
hard as the famous one over tho hills
In nnd about Ithaca. Every conceivable
kind of running can be found In the
park. In addition, Pennsylvania could
furnish the best kind of dressing quarters
nt the University and other boat houses
along the Schuylkill.
The candidates for tho Quaker cross
country team will be called out on Tues
day of next week, when Coach George
W. Orton will give them an easy run
through, the Park. There Isn't much
chance of n Pctui victory this J'car, for
the Quakers have lost three of their
best runners of last j-ear, McCurdy,
Langncr and Madeira, while Cornell has
retained most of her 1913 stnrs. Last
year McCurdy was third, Langncr ninth
nnd Madflra 43th. If Madeira had fin
ished within tho first clx men I'enn would
have won tho meet.
Of last year's team the Quakers have

and won't try It again. Earl Humphreys,

GRIDIRON NEWS GLEANED FROM LEADING COLLEGE CAMPS
By EDWARD E. BUSHNELL
The announcement that Yale celebrated
iti llrst actual grldlion practice on Yale
field behind closed gales came as some
thing of a ihock to the college world
after tho New HaVPii coi respondents had
hent hroadcast the Infoimatlon that ono
of tho leforms which Head Coach Frank
Illnkey Intended to Initiate was to keep
tho (gates open to the undeigraduato
public. At that time Illukey was quoted
as deflating that secret piactlce was
milch overdone and that he would dovote
most of his time to teaching straight
football, and that If his uh.nges could
execute it perfectly he didn't care whether
they played any new-fangled football or
pot. The announcement was received with
decided approval by the Intercollegiate
There may be some special reason for
Yale's extraordinaty piccautlon at this
time, und the gutes may still be flung
open more widely than ever befoie in
a short time. Probably the principal
rcabon for holding secret practice at this
tliiw was tho fact that Yale's first appo
neut on Saturday will be tho University
If It bo sranted that theio Is some ad
vantage In seciet practice its value is
more than offset by the loss of under
graduate Interest. The balance of power
Is frequently piovldcd by the under
graduates In a critical game, anil If the
students havo had the gates shut in their
faces very often they won't know their
own plavers, nor will they support them
In the enthusiastic manner they would
If they felt free to watch tbo practice
whenever they wished. Ux-Captnln
Hobey Halter, of Princeton, put Into
operation a reform of this kind last year
when, at his request, the gates were
i open to the students most of tho time.
I O course, there are times when It Is not
desirable that uny one should watch tho
practice but these times aio fewer than
most coaches ate willing to admit.
Princeton proved that to its own satis
faction, and If a good many other in
stitutions caiefully analized the situa
tion they would come to the same con
elusion Foothill conditions at Michigan

Yost dltl not develop one or more sen
st lions in his back field. Last ieur It
was James Crulg, a brother of Ralph
1'iultf, the foimer Olympic sprinting
chhinplon, who hnd almost as much speed
as his ttuck luother. Halfback Ciulg
was probably the fastest man on any
iidttoi. last yeat with the possible ex
ception of Murslull. of Pcniisilvanta. In
fi.ct he was so fast and brilliant that he
dimmed the star of quaiterback Hughitt
who, under oidmary circumstances, would
have been utmost as brilliant a player.
In addition to Hughitt this iear Michi
gan has a new fullback hi the name of
Mnulbetsch. He tomes from one of the
Delink schools Bud promises to be a
t.'cond Uarrells. He is unusually expert
in the receipt of the forward pass and

freshmen pronounced him the best fresh

certainly a wonder as a schoolboy, and
If he has Improved as he should have
done he will be a welcome addition to
the Ells' backfleld, none too strong at
Not until .some time Friday, possibly
not boforo Friday evening, will any one
know the exact llnc-up of the Penn
team for the game with Gettysbutg. The
fight for positions, not only In the line,
hut In the backlield. Is so oven nnd keen
that tho coaches themselves don't know
who their eleven best players will be.
The Cornell eleven formally opens the
gildhou season this afternoon with a
game against Ursinus. A few vears ago,
when the team from College'vlllo con
tained such plaiera as Hay and tho
..,.m",P!'0" ,"'otl'ora nnd were coached by
Whltey" Price, they were a formldablo
opponent for any ten in. But they wore
easy meat for Cornell last year and
Miould be as easy today.
Morning practice at Pennsylvania yes
terday consisted of n long blackbo.tid
talk, principally on defense, followed by a
demonstration on the Held or the things
In the afternoon Biooke and Dickson
spent a Ioiik time in drilling tho endi
nnd halfbacks In setting down under
kicks and in blocking. Seelhach. Koons,
Muidoek. Vr-clancl. Winy. Urkhnrt mid
Hopkins were used. Hopkins and Urk
hait make a good Impression.
Mathews nnd Cartel then practiced
placo nnd drop kicking with men break-un-
through to block. They got off somo
beauties from the 30 and 40-yard line.
Thorough tackling ptaclice with the
flying dummy was next In tho order of
I ho day, the men tliowrd their usual
early season form In this, tackling high
and uiiccitaln, but under Biooko and
Dickson Improvement may be looked for
In short order.
At 5:30 the exhausting heat had
subsided somewhat, so the mon put on
their head gears for a scrimmage with
Harold Gaston's nghtliiK scrubs.
Mathews kicked off to Lindsay who iRn
It back to his own iO-yard line. The
scruhs lost the ball on downs, dun to ,i
fumble und Dei ry punted to Merrill, who
teturned it 20 lards before-being downed.
Gains by Math-ws mid Men 111 put the
ball down in the scrubs' territory. Gas
ton s nien held firm, and Nick Carter
went in to tiy for a placo kick. His
attempt hit tho cross bar and the ball
bounded back into the field for a touch
buck. Scrubs' ball on their own 20
yard line After unsuccessful attempt
to gain, lieny again punted to Merrill,
who returned It 21 yards. Ballou was
sent in to replace Men 111 on the varsity
and Rockefeller to lellevo Mathews.
Varsity started another inarch towaid
the scrubs' soal b means of fierce line
plunges by-. Tones and a 15-inid run by
Hughes. The ball went to the scrubs
when a varsity man was penalised for
offside play. The sciubs kicked the ball
cm! of danger.
Rockefeller and Jones alternated nt
fullback and did consistent gaining.
Tho ball was soon down In the scrub
territory. Gelem was laid out by a
blow on the head and was replaced by
Clothier. It was ascertained last night
that the Injury was nut serious. Rocke
feller took it over for the only touch
down. Cartel kicked a goal. The work
of Mike Dows wus a feature He oppened
holts big enough to march the Get man
army through. Mathews played a gicat
game, makln gsome wonderful gains, und
showed good defensive ability Harry
Jones showed that he has lost none of
his old-time playing ability Al Journey
displayed a remarkable steadiness for
being so new at the centre position.
That Harold Gaston is going to ha.-e
an unusually scrappy aggregation Is evi
dent. Berry he has as clever a man for
. E. Price
his weight as there Is on the field, while
tho Price brothers, Gellyn and Hendsay
are ns game a bunch of bantams as ever
laced a shoe. McBrayer and Hennlnff
ate showing business and are hard plaj
crs. Theh- work yesterday caused them
to bo added to tho varsity squad
The varsity squad now have the tialn
ing table and tialuing quarters to them
selves. It consists of Captain Al Journey,
Miko Doiizas, Miko Russell, Tubby With
eiovv, Mike Carter, Ned Harris, Loo
Xorweld, Pepper, 1 lentil ng, McBroyer,
Mutdock, Seelback, Hoover, Vreeland,
Wrny, Hopkins, I'nkhart-
Gottwalls nnd Moffot were among the
"unnoticed bystandeis," being the first
roci tilts for tho hospital squad. "Gotty"
has a wrenched ankle, while "Doc"
Handcock has fotblddcn Moffet scrim
mage until his vaccination gets better.
Erny Wlnns, captain of the 1310 Penn
sylvania team and AU-Amcrlcan centre,
was out yesterday, supporting Pat Dwjer
with the linemen. Crane, lost year'i
tackle, was also a visitor.
In spite of rumors to tho contiary,
Welsh and Stack, the two whirlwind
freshmen from Dean Academy, arrived
yisteulay and were out for practice. Th
icarllugs keep on winning, but It will
bo hurd to estimate the material before
Mondny, as it cannot be certain how
many will satisfy the ilgld scholastic
stnudards of tho University.

STATE COLLEGE? Pa., Sept. 23 -Ns
better athletes have tome Into Penn State
with the fiu-hman class than those who
entered fiom the high schools of Phila
delphia and other Institutions of that
vicinity. So favorable has been the show
ing of a number of them that they will
Ilkcli make the football team during their
llrst year in college, an unusual honor If
the llrst sctlmmage practice held last Sat
urday is any criterion, some of last lear's
regulars will be put aside this season to
make way foi such men as Whetstone,
the crack West Philadelphia High School
captain and "All-Scholastic' halfback
lust season; Cubbage, from Central IHS"
School; Hlgglns, of Peddle Institute,
Fleck, ot Radnor High School, and id
gerton, of Ambler High School.
Dave Kerr Back at C. H, S.
The Central High School teams have
been greatly augmented by Dave K"'
return to school. Kerr was a member
of two varsity teams last year. "ndwm ;
he may not bo eligible for football tnis
fall, It Is thought that he will have
high enough scholastic standing later on,
to play basketball. Butler, who ie
