Notre Dame's Defeat Gen
erally Gratifying, Y e t
Games for Local Suprem
acy Still Out-rank Inter
sectional Contests.
Although the number of bis IntTsec
tlonnl football games Is Increasing an
nually. It Is probable that the tlnie will
never come when there g.imr, regard
ltss of the quality of football games play
ed by the contending elevens, will sup
plant In Importance the battles waged
for sectional supremacy. As long as the
llarvard-rrlnceton. Ynle-Hnrvaril am)
I'rlnccton-Yalo games nrp played In the
East, any contest which one of these
learns may have with n team of the
West will fade Into comparative litslenltl
cance. In the sam" way the Chicago
Minnesota, Mlnneotn-Wl.eonsln and Wisconsin-Chicago
gum's will grip th" n
tcrest of the football fans of the West.
There wos, huwrvor, considerable kii
cral Interest manifest In the Ynle-Notic
Dame contcrt on Saturday. The com
plete manner In which the Hlup con
quered the western rival was Indeed a
pleasant surprise to the followers of
old Kit. though many of the supporters
of Harvard and Princeton would like, for
personal reasons, to have seen the vic
tory less decisive.
It might appear from the big score,
rS-0. that Tale did not have to extend
herself In the least to defent the Notre
Dame eleven. Yet the opposite was true.
The. New Haven boys were forced to
exert evorv ounce of energv they had on
the defense to stave off the attacks of
Notre Dame, while on the offense they
were compellod to exhibit a varied at
tack w hlch. tip to that gam-', they wero
not thought to posses. Now that th
XIast has derided almost unanimously
that to be successful the open came must
be perfect, Yale's showing In th" Nntr-
Dame battl" has put new hopn Into every i
team In this section. "What Yale can
do, we can do." Is the way the other
teams will look at the Blue's development
of a diversified attack.
The work of Wilson. Legore and Alns
worth In handling ordinary, and forward
passes was extremely gratifying to the
coaches of the Blue. Indeed the men
played a game which was far above th"
fondest expectations of their followers.
This merely goes to show that the play
ers and coaches of the Kast can perfect
the new game, and can combine It In
such a manner with the old. that they
will. In the near future, bo able to pre
sent an oftene which can be solved with
exceeding dlfllciilty.
The great problem of scoring after the
ball has been carried to a point within
the. 25-yard line has been the one which
has perplexed the coaches most. This
was shown last season when the thre
Dig games of the Cast were played with
out a touchdown being scored. But with
the development of an attack which In
cludes a well-worked out svslem of for
ward passes plus a good running attack,
the difficulties of making touchdowns will
be largely overcome and the burden will
be shifted from the offen-o to the defense.
That It will require longer than one sea
pon to attain anything approximates
perfection In the open or forward passing
game has been shown In the majority of
contests staged this season. For Instance,
In the Penn-Navy game the value of a
good pass and the danger of a poorly
planned one was never better shown. In
the early stages of the first period the
middles were enabled to score a touch
down, largely through the medium of a
forward pass. It was this play which put
them In striking distance of the goal.
Tet their nttompt to break the 6-3 tie
toward the close of the contest proved
their undoing and gave the Red and Blue
the opportunity for which they had been
Icoklng throughout the entire battle.
Avery diagnosed the play which the Navy
intended to execute for the purpose of
leaving Franklin Field victorious. Mike
was "on the Job" when th pass was
made. He caught the ball and sprinted
some 60 yards down the field for the win
ning points, planting the ball behind the
goal line. There Is no doubt that under
ordinary circumstances Avery would not
have been able to get away with such a
long run. But on this occasion the Navy
was thrown off Its guard by suddenly
being shifted from a position of offense
to one of defense. Manv of the middles
did not realize that the pass had gone
wrong until It was too late. They wero
caught flat-footed, as It were.
Of course, there will always be the ele
ment of chance In making forward passes:
nt the rame time, Yale showed that such
plays can b executed with comparative
safety, and this must be accomplished be
fore these plays will be more beneficial
to the. team using them than they are to
the opponents.
This brings us again to the realization
that a clever running attack must be de
veloped alone with good passing. The
team on the defense, is compelled to shift
Its players according to the attack of the
opposing eleven. If the team on the of
fense has only the pass to rely upon, then
the defense can scatter Its players In
such a way that It will be largely a mat
ter of luck If a completed pass Is made.
kOn the other hand, If the offense has a i
varied attack thy can use either a run-
lnr attack or a nass. denendlnc unon the
distribution and position of the players on
the defense '
In order for a team on the offense to
thus take advantage of the defensive po- ,
billons of the enemy, a capable field gen
eral must he at the helm. Here Penn has
proved weak, and to this fact may be at-
tribute! the greater part of her poor .
showing last season. Marshall, last year's j
Tied and Blue quarterback, was a good
Hjechanleal player He ran punts back '
well, tackled surely in the open field and '
ran the ball well from scrimmage. But
he was not a good field general
This season It was expected that Penn
would overcome this weakness In gridiron j
make-up by the presence of "Vic" Ballou I
But Ballou's enforced retirement from the
game has put the Red and Blue In the
tame discouraging position in which It
found itself last year.
:Nelther Merrill nor Krwln has shown
more than mediocre ability In handling
the team. Coach Brooke and his as
sistants have a difficult duty to perform
In developing a quarterback, who can
diagnose a defense with sufficient rapidity
and certainty to drive the team to vic
tory Coach Al Sharpe. of the Cornell eleven,
began developing his football team along
the lines laid down by Connie Mack. Mack
does not, as every one knows, make a
play for Immediate results In a recruit.
Collins, Mclnnls and Barry, three of the
world s greatest diamond stars, were
valueless to him for a long while. At last
they came to their own, and every fan
knows with what result
So Al Sharpe last season looked ahead
Instead of only at the campaign of UU
He started out to build up a football ma
chine which would ultimately be self-per-jotgatiot
In that the losses from gradua
tn and from other causes would be offset
by the Inculcation oX sfflciuat new blood
from the men whom he trained In the
game's fundamentals from the beginning
of their stay In college.

He had seen that, despite defeats nt the
hands of Carlisle, Pittsburgh, Harvard
and Michigan, his team was developing.
He knew that It hid developed by
Thanksgiving, hence white he was tx

Atlantic City Event on Octo
ber 29 at Northfield Will
Be Magnet to Attract State
If present climatic conditions continue
golfers will have wonderful weather at
Atlantic City for the big tournament held
annually under the direction of the Coun
try Club of that resort on the Northfield
links. No less than 100 Phlladelphlans,
representing all the big clubs In this
vicinity, will compete In this big golf
classic, which will start next Thursday a
week, October 23.
That the season in golf has not come to
a close In this section was mnde evident
on S.iturday by the many players who
were out on the links. Club champion
ship titles are now being decided nt the
country clubs. Mrs. Ronald H. Barlow,
the Philadelphia champion, had a narrow
escape from defeat In her match with
Miss Eleanor Chandler In the first round
of match play In the Merlon Cricket Club
chajnpionshlp. After being two down
going to the 15th, the city champion won
the last four holes and the match, two up.
While Atluntic City has had ideal
weather and the Northfield links have
been crowded every week-end by golfers,
I,akcwood, N. J., another popular winter
retreat for golfers, where, It Is claimed,
the game may be played the year round,
as on Southern courses, has been a gath
eilng place for Phlladelphlans and New
Yorkers. The players are taking advan
tage of the perfect weather by practicing
for the annual fall tournament at Lake
wood, November 5, 6 and 7.
Iast summer the Philadelphia Cricket
Club officials secured a ten-year lease on
tho property occupied by the club at St.
Martin's. Since that time the committee
has been working on plans for changes In
the links. In a recent bulletin published
by the club the following explanation ap
peared. "Now that we have a practically as
sured ten-year lease of the golf course. It
has beon determined to rearrange a num
ber of the greens, lengthen several holes
and stiffen up the course generally by
rew haznrds and narrowing of the fair
ways. With tho basis of our present ex
cellent greens and fairways, we should,
by the expenditure of a reasonable
amount of money, make the Philadelphia
Cricket Club course one of the best In
the East "
A large field turned out last Saturday
for the Wyncote Cup competition, the
fourth annual contest of its kind held by
the Old York Road Country Club. The
members returned some good scores, and
the achievement of Doctor Parry, whu
broke the record by making his round In
TS, beating a big field for the low groin
score and also leading with the best low
net score of 63, was a remarkable feat,
since the conditions under which the tour
nament waa played were totally different
to those that have prevailed for several
weeks past.

Coach Howell's Eleven
Buries , Princeton Prep.,
44 to 0, While Red and
Black Finds B.M.I. Team
Equally Easy.
The results of Saturday's scholastic
football games again found Northeast and
Central High on the long end of big
scores, the former team winning from
Bordentown Military Institute, 39 to 0,
and the latter from Princeton Prep., U
to 0. The star of the Central High
Princeton clash was Captain Bill
Stephens, who tallied 23 of the winners'
points. Stephens Is Improving with every
game, and will make a splendid back for
some college eleven next" fall. At present
he Is In a class by himself as a school
boy player, and it will be almost an im
possibility to keep him off the all-scholastic
team this year. The West Phillies
ran up against a snag In the person of
the Bethlehem Prep, team here on Sat
urday, and after nearly an hour of futile
battling neither eleven waa able to
score. Mill ford's team on paper appears
tt be the weakest of the public high
schools, but It has a way of rounding Into
form for Its big games, and on this the
West Philadelphia followers are pinning
their hopes.
Wilson, one of the best scholastic shot
putters In the Middle States, is fitting In
nicely at tackle for the Radnor High
eleven tots season. Although the schedule
is less than half completed, 'Wilson has
already distinguished himself by his ag
gressiveness and line open-field tackling.

Writes Her Views of Penn
Navy Game Saturday and
Gives Interesting Informa
tion on Subject.
Keen with all the vividness of first lm.
pitsshns, the football match of Saturday
wnn a delightful affair. The sun was
shining and tho bands wero playing anl
all Ihe wortd nntl his wife wero hasten
ing to tho scene
The tr'dley cars were crowded, eni la
sdth the helilhi; hopca nm! asplr.Ulong
of youthful Phlte.delphla -we-e freeiy
a'rtd. "Gee whiz!" a srsall and snub,
nosed schoolboy murmured to admiring
frlet'fls, "I've put my very last nickel on
Pena's chaaecs. Annapolis Is very strong,
Their men ar heavier than ours. I guest
I've shelled out far too much on Penr.'"
Once at tho flctil the scone was a noj
festho one. A ca of faces thronged ths
stani'r. Tho veiy nil- was hoarse with,
shouts und cheer..
fc'een with an tSnglip'ri eye, th whole
affali wan riulto spectacular and eminent,
ly sporting Why, who or. oarth wera
the excited gentlemen In tl.e r.carlet Jer
sey!! wildly waving megaphones? Ths
explanation soon came ringing through
the air. Somo player wan hurt and they
wem speeding the parting guest front
oft the field with cheers of sympathy.
To the calm and conservative English,
mind theso strange gymnastics did seem,
to hit a somewhat theatrical note only
at first, however, for the spirit of the
twisting, leaping, shouting aorobata was
most Infectious. Soon England cheered,
and hopped and halloed with tho best!
It was a most exciting game. .Nay,
more. It proved a veritable battlefield.
The slnln nntl slaughtered, after belnj
kneaded and twisted and, In fact, en
couraged by n variety of fierce remedies
that seemed Infinitely worse than ths
disease to "como back to life" again,
either pot up revived and proceeded with
the battle, or retired pro tem. to re
cuitrrnte among the rcsorvlsts at the side.
In either event, the acrobatic dancers
with the megaphones lauded the heroes'
praises to the very heavens. The crowds '
responded cheerfully. Tes, It was a giddy
time, both for the players and the spec,
lllglit opposite, a crowd of navy men
seemed suddenly to go quite mad. The
most appalling wall all In one dreadful
unison rent the air. To one who has but
recently passed through fogs in mid
Atlantic, unci has listened nervously
through long sleepless nights to that
same siren's t-ound. In momentary ex
pectation of the final hump that ts to
send one to the bottom, such a melody
Is renrcely cheerful. Tet It filled the
Navy men with wildest glee. Each to
his taste!
Tho Kngllsh football field Is a mere
tnme and dull nffnlr that pales beneath
such episodes as Saturday's. True, Eng
lish football runs, without such stimu
lants as trumpets, drums and niega
plu'rc. Yet the gentler sex flutter
around the Kngllsh field more frequently
than here, and probably their presence
Is regnrded ns-sufllcicnt encouragement.
This solution is put forth tentatively.
Bp that so, or otherwise, the football
match of Saturday was a delightful af
fair. One hears so much In these enlight
ened days about "high art" and the
beauty and symmetry of Greek gods, but
for sheer husklness and overpowering
muscle a certain gentleman called Dorlzaj
quite took tho palm away from his ances
tors of ancient Greece! With one great
arm upraised he swung a Navy man,
who must have boasted at least MO
pounds, right Into the air and backwards
like a ball of thistledown. A dreadful
person to quarrel with that Dorltas
must bo!
Next to the mystic mouthing of ths
megaphones the oddeBt thing that struclc
