College Gridiron Gleanings
By EDWARD R. BUSHNELIi
A vcrsatilo backfleld, with every man
able to star In more than ono depart
ment. Is the ambition of Head Coach
Brooke for this year's Pennsylvania
team. When Brooko analyzes tho can
didates for backfleld honors he wnnts to
satisfy himself that they will add moro
than one combination to his nttack. He
doesn't want a man who can do nothing
but kick, or whoso worth Is limited to
lino plunging. But he does welcome with
open arms the man who can kick, for
ward pass, run nnd break through the
The best combination player ho now
hns Is Tucker, who can do all tficso
things and do them wellv He Is tho
best man In the backfleld lo run with
tho hnll, nnd Is likewise tho best punter
nnd forward passer. Vrceland can for
ward pass, he can run with the ball nnd
ho can place-kick. Merrill's strong points
nre his catching ot punts In the back
fleld nnd his open field running. Ulti
mately tho fourth member of this quar
tet will probably bo Matthews. Of these
four, Matthews Is tho best line breaker,
and Is also showing raro promise as a
dropklcker. All this week Coach Brooko
has boon trying to tench him n fourth
qualification, that of forward passing.
Ho Is Improving every day In this.
The value of having such a versatile
backfleld lies in tho fact that Its mem
bers can always do the unexpected. For
In"tancotall four of the men named can
heave the forward pass. If It Is to be
a plungo Into tho line Vreelnnd, Tucker
or Matthews can bo used to carry tho
ball, and all four can skirt the ends.
Tucker Is, of courso. the best ot tho
punters, but Matthews can dropkick nnd
Vieotand place-kick. So many combina
tions make posslblo all rorts of fake
plays. If the coaches can only keep
these four men togcthor, and can keep
them In good physical condition they nre
certain to do some surprising work be
fore the season ends.
In addition to tho Harvard-State, Penn
Indian, Princeton-Dartmouth nnd Ynle
Woshlngton nnd Jefferson games on Sat
urday thero Is to be one contest, an
Intersectional match, which will attract
lots of Interest all through the East.
It Is the game between Syracuse and
Michigan, at Syracuse. Syracuse proved
against Princeton that the Orans Is a
tough antagonist this year, and the Mlch-Igan-Aggles
game demonstrated last
week that Y-St'a machine Is vul
nerable. A year ago Syracuse Io"t
to Michigan by the score of 13
to 7, but this year the Syracuse team
Is much stronger According to so capable
and honeBt a coach as Donald G. Herring,
of rrlnceton, the only thing that pre
vented Syracuse from beating Princeton
was the poor gencialshlp and fumbling
of punts by Quarterback Seymour, of
the visiting team.
Reports from Ann Arbor are to the
effect that the Michigan backfleld has
been weakened by Injuries to teveral
players In last Saturday's game. Mlchl
gan Is now being pointed for the Har
vard game at Cambridge one week from
Saturday. Of course, Michigan wants to
beat Syracuse, but It can bo put down
for a certainty that the Westerners would
prefer to bo beaten by Syracuse than
risk Injured veterans, who will be needed
to meet Harvard.
When Princeton meets Dartmouth on
Saturday tho Tigers will be opposed by
a backfleld little. If any, weaker than
the famous Harvard quartet of labt ytar.
If Dartmouth's men llvo up to their
1913 reputation they will be strong tn
every department of the game. One could
hardly ask n bettor quarterback than
Ghee, while the writer has yet to see
any backfleld man able to handle tho
forward pass better than he. As a line
plunger, off taikle or around the eniU
Captain Whitney Is a second Brlckley,
and both Curtis and Murdock are stars
of tha first magnitude.
At this writing it looks as though
Princeton enjoyed one advantage, that of
hiving met a stronger set of preliminary
opponents, and this means a lot. Dart
mouth went through Its preliminary
games llko a prairie Are, but Princeton
had to fight, and light hard, to win from
Rutgers, Buckucll. Syracuse and I.afu
yette. The Tiger coaches are trying an experi
ment this year to teach field generalship.
Threo dais a week the Princeton team
plays a regular game with the scrubs or
freshmen. In wllch each quarterback U
obliged to manage his own game, There
Is no coaching Interference. The object
of this Is have a team which can Dlay the
came, not practlca it. In ottr words, the

LANCASTER, Pa., Oct. 21. Hans Nolde,
of Heading, who entered college from
Morcershttrg this fall, yesterday after
noon won tho fall tennis tournament for
the championship of Franklin and Mar
shall from V. H. Kunkel, of Harrlsburg,
by the scores of 6-0, 6-1 and 6-1. This
victory gives Noldo the captaincy of the
team next season.
Tiger coaches hope they won't deserve
tho scathing criticism of a cortaln coach
who, on seeing tho team work out last
"That team Is fine, splendid. It wilt
score n hundred touchdowns against
'good, strong northeast wind."
The Princeton coaches have the right
Idea tn their efforts to develop Initiative
nnd responsibility In their quarterbacks.
Any quarterback who can't think for him
self In prnctlco certainly won't do 1 In an
There was an Interesting Incident In tha
Ponnsylvanln-Navy game on Saturdny
that tsenped most of tho spectators, but
which mightily pleased the men who love
to see captains exercise their own initia
tive. Just after the second period began
the Quakers had the ball on the 15-yard
line, nnd It waa neccssnry to try for a
gcal from field or surrender the ball on
downs. Thero was no move on the part
of the coaches to Interfere In the situa
tion, nor did they do as has usually
been done under such circumstances, send
lu n suhstltuto with Instructions how to
act under such critical conditions.
Captain Journouy himself took things
in hand, sent Wray from tho game and
called for Matthews to try for a goal
from field. Tho thing was mightily
pleasing to T. T. Hare, chairman of
tho Football Committee, and a strong
opponent of side-line coaching in any
form. Now, if Journcay will continue to
exercise his Initiative and aelect sub
stitutes lu tho same manner the coaches
might ns well be sitting In the stands
for all tho Interference they can wield.
About tho only criticism the Pennsyl
vania conches have to offer of the work
of Mike Dorlzas, the Greek strong men.
Is that ho Is too gentle with his opponents.
When Mike llrst began to lenrn the game
ho was always careful to say "excuse
mo" If he trod with too much weight
on an opponent's bunions or otherwise
handled him too toughly. He has gotten
over this, but ho is still too considerate
of the opponent's feelings to meet stren
uous play In kind. During the course of
tho Navy gnme, nnd Just after a fierce
scrimmage In which Mike's luckless op
ponent was laid out for repairs, one ot
his teammates chlded him for not play
ing with enough abandon.
"I fear I was altogether too rough,"
said Mike, sorrowfully. "There Is my
opponent on tho ground."
