Iveinnlh Also Hellcvcs Pitt Was Stronger Than Cornell
Willie in n fanning mood, Kcinath stated that It was bis opinion that Vltt's
football team would have beaten Cornell had the two teams mot when both
were In top. notch condition. As n scout for Pcnil, Kcinath followed Pitt for
throo weeks and then spent two weeks at lthncu looking Cornell over, and had
nn excellent line on both.
Pitt's offense was balanced better than Cornell's, according to Kcinath, and j eft
no believes thai Warners ends nml tackles were strung enough to linvo troubled
Jlarrett. Keluath believes the Pitt secondary defense was iilio so strong that
Barrett's gains would not have been great even It he got mound an end or out
alde tackle. Needless to say, few critics agree with Kcinath.

Posters Doost Hill Hollcnback
Tho most remarkable event connected with the football history nt Pennsyl
vania was tho circulation of posters throughout the city, and particularly nbout
tho campus and fraternity houses at Venn, boosting Hill Hollcnback for head
coach of the Varsity eleven for 1316. In heavy type, the poster states that tbero
aro six reasons why the old regime which has controlled football at Venn for
years does not wnnt Hollenbnck appointed to the position.
Just whore tho posters camo from nobody seems to know, but their publi
cation has caused great excitement among the students and nlumul. It Is said
that n committee of undergraduates who are in favor of giving tho younger
generation n chance to pull Venn out of tho football rut had caused the posters
to be published.

Opinion Differs as to Effect of Remarkable Poster.
Just what effect the remarkable and unusual procedure will have on tho j
coming elections Is not known. Some of the students nnd alumni eligible to
vote think that It will clinch the election of Hollenbnck to tho board of di
rectors of the Athletic Association, which will virtually assure him tho head
If coaching position next fall, while others are Inclined to believe thnt tho Impres-
L Blon will be General that Hollcnback caused the posters to bo circulated and will
hurt his chance.
The following Is the poster, which speaks for Itself:
"Six reasons why the present football regime does not want 'BIHV Hollcn
back for hend coach: I
"1. 'Hill' Hollenbnck will not be dictated to on the football Held. I
"2. 'Itlll' Holleuhack makes his team up from players, not friends.
"3. Vennsylvanla first, social privileges second. !
"4. 'Hill' Holleuhack would bo too busy coaching n winning team to olll
clate at other games.
"5. 'Hill' stands on merit not tradition; what do you stand on?
"6. 'Hill' Hollenbnck stands for the regeneration of athletics at Vennsyl

Are Pitchers Hall Players? They Don't Act the Part
Is a pitcher a ball player? This question will make an interesting subject
for discussion. If records anil general actions prove- anything, 'JO per cent, of
tho pitchers In the major leagues aro not ball player. Tho majority cannot
hit, run bases, and many cannot even field their own positions. There nre, of
course, exceptions to the rule, as Walter Johnson, Joo Wood, Alexander, Otis
Crandall nnd a few others have proven. They are often used as pinch hitters
nnd all of them are great llelders but slow on the bases. Apparently there Is
no reason for this lack of general ability of pitchers, unless It fs due to tho
failure of hurlcrs to get Into the game regularly.
Strangely enough, some of baseball's greatest all-round stars started their
baseball enreers as pitchers. Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb. Hobby Wallace, Hal Chase,
Jesse Ilurkett, Jimmy Callahan nnd a host of others had pitching ambitions
until a manager discovered that they were too vnluablo to have sitting on tho
bench four or live days a week. The great exception to tho rulo Is tho collegian.
Invariably the pitcher in a college ball team Is the greatest all-round player.
Ebbetls Will Probably Cause Later Daseball Start
President Charles Ebbetts, of the Brooklyn National League Club, wants
the major league teams to open tho season one week Inter than usual. Kbbctts
argues that April 19 would bo a moro suitable opening day, with fewer days oft
during the playing season, and that this program would bo a good one for base
ball In general. Ebbetts Is likely to find many supporters In the coming Na
tional League meeting, as cold weather has marred opening day games, particu
larly in the West, for several seasons.
As Ebbetts is a member of the schedule committee of tho two major leagues,
he Is likely to curry his point. Barney Dreyfuss, of the Vlrates, favored a later
start last season, but Ebbetts was one of those who voted down tho proposition.
The edge was taken off the Dodgers' opening last season by the cold weather
and Ebbetts quickly changed his mind.
Georgetown Made a Great Record on the. Gridiron
Georgetown's greut gridiron record In the South has been generally over
Jooked because of tho brilliant season Virginia enjoyed and the fact thnt tho
latter beat Ynlo and played Harvard to a close game, In which the Crimson
tailed to cross the goul lines. Georgetown, in its first season under Al Kxen
dlne, the great Indian end of a few years ago. had its strongest team in years
and completed its schedule with but two defeats charged against It.
Princeton was going at its best when It trimmed Georgetown. 13 to 0. while
the Washlngtonlans blamed the 10-to-0 defeat at the hands of West Point to
the slippery condition of the field which prevented Gllroy from performing his
usual open-field stunts. Tho latter was the unanimous choice of all critics for
a halfback with Mayer, of Virginia, at tho other half, on the All-Southern
eleven and is looked upon as a better back than Harry Costello, Geprgetown's
sensation of a few years ago. Incidentally Princeton nnd Army were the only
teams which scored on Georgetown while 284 points were scored.
Spears' Ineligibility Recalls Marks Case at Dartmouth
The ineligibility of Spears, the great Dartmouth guard, for next season,
recalls the case pf Juck Marks, the Green's fullback of 1907, 1308 and 1909, who
was elected captain for 1910 but was barred because ho had played several
Barnes with South Dakota before entering the Hanover institution. The differ
ence In the two cases Is that Spears went to the faculty and told them he had
played with Knox College, of Galesburg, III., white Marks tried to conceal his
Harvard to Drop State From Its Schedule for Roughness
Harvard has decided to drop Penn State and Brown from its schedule, ac
cording to n ti"nni'ial announcement made by one of the members of the Crim
son football committee. State Is being dropped because of "rough tactics," ac
cording to the same uuurce of information. After reading reports of the Har-vard-Htute
game, one -would be Inclined to believe that State was the victim
of the "rough tactics."

Itoh Volwell have turned out great tenms
nt State and .Washington nnd Jefferson,
but the record of Sommer nt llerccrsburg,
Colgate and Vlllanovn compares favorably
with that of either.
The unustinl part of Rommer's record Is
that lie has never lost n big gnme nnd
has never had nn assistant to help him.

the nr of playing a fornnrd position.
Win n re was nt Central High Sommer
plajed tickle until Ills senior year. Then
he wns moved lo the bncklleld.
At I'tnn Sommer wns tried nt centre
hi his (list season, but his great line
plunging niul secondary defense piny
caused Coach Smith to switch hint to the
brickfield. Hy playing so many different
positions, Sommer acquired quite a great
denl of knowledge nbout how each should
This early education proved a great
thing for Sommer, for without It he would
not have been nble to coanh the line, ends
nnd hncMlclil without aid nnd turn out

Sommei's first coaching position wns nt
Xlereersbiiig Acndeniv In 19U, where he
turned out n team which not only went
through a hard schedule without being
defeated, but nIo prevented Its opponents
from scoring n single point. This remark

Colgate nnd he wns offered a contract to

IX ENCOUNTER WITH PALMER
Mexican Lightweight Holds Champion
to Even Break
MEMPHIS, Tenn.. Dec. 10. Champion
Kred Welsh was closely pressed to save
himself from an adverse decision In an
eight-round bout here last night with '
llenny Palmer, a Mexican lightweight,
billed as an Tnknown." The MexU-nn
forced the fighting In every round with
the exception of the final frame and many
of the spectators believed the title-holder
had been beaten.
Welsh loafed until the eighth, and when
the linal gong rang he barely earned a
game. Although weighing less than 130
pounds a human splinter a bundle of
nerves, lilt harder by fate than nny man

Tent after 1.1 campaigns.
Only n vltnl spark of excessive flame
a rare spirit could have held on as the
Trojan has. lighting himself, fute, tho
umplies, the opposing club. He wns sup
posed to be nil through, a nervous wieck,
five years ngo, when he lasted but 41
games. Hut lie expects to be ready for
Ids llth season next April, always with
one eye on fnto to see where the next
wallop will fall.
