Cbach George Johnson, who drilled the
BL.tiM Northeast High football team Into
form to win' the Ellis Qlmbel trophy, has
chosen the men above Indlcnted for the
19U all-scholastic football team. Johnson
has limited his choice to the four public
high schools and may pick a team con
lstlng of players from all the Philadel
phia high and preparatory schools In the
near future. The personnel of the first
team, however, would not have been
changed had other echools been Included,
with the possible exception that Green,
of Catholic High, a former Exeter player,
would probably have landed the centre
position. Johnson cannot bo accused of
being partial in choosing so many North
east men for the first team, since In the
Northeast High-Central High game each
Red and Black linesman outplayed his
opponent, except Thomns, who was Just
about able to hold his own ngnlnst Wlrk
man, of Central. Central High, It must bo
remembered, was largely a one-man team,
with "Billy" Stephens performing In the
stellar role.
Irt choosing the ends. Johnson had some
excellent material In Bretthaupt and Wit
son, of Northeast; De Long, of Central,
and Scholes, of West Philadelphia.
Many fan maintain that Scholes ahouM
win a plnc on the first loam because of Ills
wonderful drensivu work In the Olmbel Cup

end run In tee Central-West Philadelphia.
Scholes w. unfortunately, severely hurt dur

football team this season will nominate and
elect a captain for next year's gridiron aggre
gation which will will represent tho. Institution
across the Schuylkill, at a meeting In the
school's gym. next week.
The West Philadelphia players were greatly
surprised when they learned that Mofflt' Ellis,
tho star halfback, will not return to school
next year. Ho hat announced hla Intention cl
curtailing his course nt West Philadelphia and
' enter a business career. Ellis was cot'sldered at
an unanimous choice for the eleven's leader
ship tn 101S. Wiltam Wagenknlght. this year's
captain, will graduato next spring.
As Ellis will refuse the nomination of cap
tain for next season's team, the probable se
lection for the generalhhlp Is a matter of dif
ferent opinion. However. It is likely that the
captaincy will bo landed by either u. roaster,
guard; Stelnmett, tackle, or Klrschner. tackle.
The players who are eligible to cast their
votes for the captaincy election are wagen
knlght. rills, Klrschner. Otley. Stelnmetx. U.

Dr. Albert U Multord, of the University of
Pennsylvania, coach at West Philadelphia. Is
optimistic relative to the developing or a
winning combination, with half a dosen vet
erans back tn the line-up next year. The team
this season was one ox the best slsvens de
vetoped at the school, hut Injuries sustained by
the star men greatly handicapped the playing
of the team.

Frank (Markward's Bvenino Ledger
bowling champions, the Giants, defeated
the Internationals on the alleys of the
Casino last night In three straight heats,
ralmer led the winners, with an average
of 14$. The features of the match were
the verbal broadsides hurled at the enemy
by Joe Beatty. In fact, It would have
been a delight for nny one to have heard
all the Internationals' rag.
In the final game. George Simpson
batted far Ebbert. He failed to make
any pinch strikes, but his team won out,
thanks to the good bowling of Appleby
and Palmer.
The closest Individual race of the even
ing was betwene Beatty and Mttthauer,
one of the Kaiser's reservists. He proved
that he was a true reservist when he re
served all of his bowling until a future
date, Beatty defeating him two out of

G. H. Brooke and J. W.
Ware Display Great Form.
Other Matches Were Well
Played This Morning.
I . Philadelphia gained nn unexpected vic
tory over Boston In the Intercity doubles
racquets match nt tho Racquet Club this
morning by winning two matches to one,
nine games to Ave. Two of tho matches
could not have been moro closely con-
! tested and the form displayed by G. H.
Brooko and, J. W. Ware in the one match
nnd C S. Bromley nnd A. J. D. Paul In
the other was a revelation. At the last
minute Bromley substituted for It. K.
Cassatt, who was unabla to piny, owing
to business engngements, nnd It wns un
doubtedly tho form that Bromley dis
played that gave Philadelphia the vic
tory. He never played a better all
round game In his life anil with Paul In
good form they Just pulled through from
a strong pair In Hugh Scott nnd It, L.
Agasslz by three games to two.
The match that attracted the most atten
tion, nt course, was the one between George
II. Ilrooko and J. tV. Ware, representing
Itilladelnhla, and C. L. Jutchlns and J. Cut
lr, of Doston. It was thought that Brooke
and Ware hail not had sufficient practice, but
practice cr no practice, they gave a good
account of themselves by beating the Hos
tonlans bv threo games to two. The first
game they won quite handily by 15 aces to
1), a run of nine aces In Ware's hand at the
ending of the game being a..dcclctedly brilliant
onn Tne secoml gamo tvas won even more
easily by the Phlladelphlans, and runs of
six and four ares early In the gamu placed
the result practically beyond doubt. So strong
a lead was established by the Racquet Club
pair In the next gamo that It looked very
much as If they would win In straight games.
In Ware first hand a run of 8 aces was made,
four of which were from his service. How
ever. In Cutler's hand the Fostonlans made
a run of 11 acres, Brooke and Waro failed
to score In their next handa. and their op
ponents scored a lone ace. Only one was
added by the Bostonians. but Brooke and ware
again took the lead with a run of four be
fore being put out, They were unable to
score again, however, and the Boatontans won
their first game, IS to 13. The next gams
was the beat contested of the nvu Brooke
and Ware started off wlffi a lead of flje
aces to three, but a f.no run of 11 aces by
their opponents left them well In tho rear.
In the net few hands nrooke and Wnro
did all the scoring, and, with runs of three
end five acris, they got on even terms
with their opponents, thirteen all, Set three
was CKllwl. and the rhlladelphlans added one
more ace before being put out, and they
did not havo another chance, as their oppo
nents ran out the game.
For a long tlms iho result of the third
game was In doubt, Brooko and Ware estab
lished a lead of 8 aces to 3, but their op
pohents came back with a run of p and maS
the score 0 to T. Although they had two or three
more cuanews ui Bcui,iR. im, ; ..-.....
do so and Brooke and War ran out the game,
7 n n-iu n. fBnlr nuM h found with tha I
winners. On several occasion they served
themselves out at a critical stage of tb
Same, and It was fortunate for them that It
Id not prove more costly.
In tha match for second team P. S, Stock

(eated T, Rtdgway and 11. K. Mohr In straight
names, 15-3, 15-T. 15-10. The match between

London Sporting Magazine
of 1 793 Says Pastime Had
Long Been Established at
That Early Date.
Pigeon-shooting, tho forerunner of
modern trapshooling, wits a popular sport
In England during the last century. It
una mentioned in the Sporting Magazine,
London, aa early as 1753, and referred to
as having already nn established repu
tation. Tho "Old Hat." n famous Dubllc
house lit Ealing, was for many years a
favorlto rendezvous of plgeon-shtoters,
but Inter the Ilcd Houso at Uattersea
took precedence because It was more
easily accessible to Londoners. "To
those who foci anxious on the subject of
pigeon-shooting," thn Sportsmen's Cyclo
pedin (London, ISIS) recommends a vlBlt
to the Red House, "where the business
Is pursued In the first style of excel
lence." Lofds nnd captnlns lent nn air
of fashion to the activities of the place,
and on the establishment of the Hullng
hnm Club at Fulham tho amusement was
raised higher than before in general
favor. It has now been superseded by
trapshootlng, the name of which is of
American origin, and Inanimate targets,
tho product of American Inventiveness,
have accordingly been substituted for llvo
Of course. In all this history, there have beon
!!U?F".li,l!I.. ,aB'"- Tha traps In us at tho
OKI Hat were thallow boxes, each about
one foot long and eight or 10 Inches wide,
sunk in the ground lovel with the surface. A
sliding lid wns operated by pulling a string,
thus liberating the bird. Among the famous
pigeon-shooters of that day was Richard
loonier, to whom Mr. Johnson referred in his
Cyclopedia: "The exploits which R. Toomer
performed in shooting with such apparent csbc
soon convinced the persons who bsw them,
that tiny were done methodically; and this wsa
completely ascertained by his frequently suf
fering himself to bo blinded with a. double
handkerchief over his eyes, after haying taken
hla aim, and then to Are and hit a small ob
lect. "
In lK-'ll plueon-shnotlne was mentlniid In th
records of the Sportsmen's Club. Cincinnati,
and In the forties and a few decades thereafter
It flourished in New York and Its vicinity,
The Invention and adoption of Inanimate tar
gets followed, though the older pastime waa
not at onc abandoned. A Boston man. Charles
Portlock. orlclnateil tho use of the glass balls
for target shooting ubout 1SSH. A Philadel
phia!!, a few years later, invented a target

hi diameter, with tha ctnere cut out to admit
a small rubber balloon. Punctured balloon,
"dead bird." Clay dlrcs were the next Inno
vation, but because they were of unequal hard
ness and because the traps were mechanically
deficient, th sport of trapshootlng camo near
giving up the ghost. Targets arn now mad
of river silt end tar and bear the mima of
"clay pigeons."

Personal Touches in Sports
Tho Penn-Cornell game proied conclusively
that It Is possible for a team to really play
a better game than they know. This seems
logically absurd, yot It Is nevertheless true
that tho Red and Blue, probably drlicn to, the
point of desperation Ly the stinging defeats
earlier In the season and by repeated criticism,
suddenly advanced in nil-round efnclency lar
beyond tho expectations of their most san
guine followers. They iiossersed In that con
test a spirit Identical with that of the beast
who Is drlvan to tho wall. They fought for
their football lives, as It were, and tn so doing
won back much of the. prestige which they
lost In the Dartmouth Bud Michigan games.
In Philadelphia Penn has not been as popular
this year as In the past because It was the
general belief that they were not fighters, Cer
tainly th men did not fight hard In most
of tholr games, but In the Cornell game, every
one who cares to see Penn win was highly
elated at tho splendid and sustained effort
which the men put Into Their work. Captain
Journeay was tho man who made the team
fight. He set them nn example by getting Into
ovcry play posslblo and by using every ounco
nf energy that ho possessed. His work brought
htm the Just praise which a lineman often
loses becauso the public usually only sees Ihe
man running with tho ball. It Is to be hoped
that next season the fighting spirit of Al
Journeay will remain with the team and
carry them through a victorious season.
The comparatively small amount of betting
on today's game was the direct result of last
years' contest. The Navy went Into the fray
at the Polo Grounds 111 1U13 a 2 to 1 favorite,
but tho "dope" was wrong, the 'Army walking
away with an easy victory.
Ray Caldwell, the Tankee pitcher, who la the
latest nts'spaper acquisition of Connie Mack,
haa not been given tho credit, outalde of New
York, for hla brilliant work In the box. Those
who know tno metropolitan ooosung .meinoas

Now Y'o.-k Is a wonder, according to the
scribes. Therefore, when a real pitcher does

public, rn the theory that the papers are
merely crying "wolf" again. But Caldwell Is
one of the game's great pitchers. With a win.

REAL Comfort

The sedan and coups tops for the
new Hupmoblle turn open summer
cars into luxuriously comfortable
closed winter cars.
More than that, they give you the
effect and the benefit of two cars,
at a cost of mtle more than one.
Thus is partially explained tha eg.
cellent fall business we are doing.
Almost every Hupmoblle buyer or
ders one of the demountable tops
as a matter of course, seeing
ahead a winter of really pleasant
Though readily detaehable. these
tops are finished within with all
tha trlmness that characterises,
the costly limousine.
They are free of rattle, most sub
stantially built, with best coach
glass windows, wide doors and
plenty of bead-room.
Where women and ehllrtrep are con
eerned. their eoiy pretention from

them a necessity.
