CjlX Of tlio lendlnB football Uamn of tho Kast will retain so many Vctcrnhs
"J from tho 1016 elevens that they will lutvo a decided advnntafjfl on nil opponents

net surprisingly Rood material nt tho two others resulted In tho development
Of Wonderful teams. All hilt Tufti were slow renehtnn: ton form: but It Ik con
ceded that rut, "SAJo, Colgnlo, Hrown, Tufts nnd l'cnn wcro tho most consistent
team In tho country In November. Ono or two other teams mndo belter records
than a few of tho nelect class, hut they did not ploy iui hard a schedule. Next
Jftll theso six colleges will havo d much veteran material that It looks very
much ua If they will outclass tho other Eastern teams. ,
Pitt Loses Only Four Regulars
"piTl1, tho champion team of tho i:at, loscii only four regulars nnd only seven
mon of tho entire vnrslty stiund of thirty plnyrr. The four men lost to Warner
by graduation nro linemen nnd stars of tho first water, but with tho wonderful
1-ecervo strength of 1D1R on hand ho should havo llttlo trouble developing n
powerful net of forward, Captain 1'eck, Horron, Thornhlll nnd Hoppltt nro tho
men Warner will lone. Jt will bo dllllcult to replace tho wonderful Pock nt
center nnd tho brilliant Kerron, who nre of All-American callbor, but Wnriicr
has not been nnpplng. Tho greatest part of tho prnctlco lalo In tho Benson was
devoted to tho development of substitutes to ml tha four vacant posts, nnd
.Warner gavo a great deal of tlmo to tho freshman team.
Warner Has Splendid Reserve Material
T)ITT will havo ono advantage noxt fall that It did not havo this year. An tho
rule barring freshmen did not go Into effect ot ritt until this fall, Warner
.suddenly was deprived of tho first-year mntortal that had produced tnr In each
of hla provloua soasona at Pitt, Next fall ho wilt havo tho freshman squad of
this season eligible for the team, and It Is said that ho has ono end, two tackles
and a back who nro looked upon as varsity certainties noftt yenr. Just whcio
tho back will bo placed Is not known, as It will bo almost Impossible to oust
aicrarcn, Hastings, DoIIart nnd Msndown from tho first string. Instcad or retro
i Trading, na most teams do after two wonderful ncnsonii, rut even should bo
stronger In 1917 DocauRo Wnrnor has been building from tho ground and Jiua
ubstltutcs to replaco tho veteran stars who will graduate.
Penn Also Has Excellent Reserves
"DUNN la in tho samo position, and unlena unforeseen circumstance deprive tho
lied and Dtuo of a great deal of Itu rllgblo material tho battlo betweun those
two teams should tie tho real classic ot the 19J'7 fdotfall neaHon. Hob Folwoll
mado wonderful ntrlde this ooasoh, nnd during thi Tatter part of November tho
Ited and Blue team was as strong as any teanviln 3. country, barring Pitt. It
required tlmo for, Folwoll tn got hln yMcm wor'8- Tand tho team was tinndl
capped In tho early part of tho weoMon; lAttr noxt ftillam will bo ablo to Htart with
ft veteran squad, experienced In his stylo of pfayT Mn'ny things may happen
before host fall; but unless the now material of tlio other tcnmi on tho Penn
nnd I'ltt schedules Is far bolter than Is expected neither team Is likely to loso any
but tha big game, In which tljoy will tnko part.
Red and Blue Backfleld Intact
TjlOUrt regulars and flvo second string men will bo lost to Penn by graduation.
Ono of tlio four regulars, Lud Way, la likely to return to college, despite
reports to tho contrary, which will leave only three lino positions for Tolwell to
nit Tho loss of Mathews, Honiilng nnd Urquhiirt will mako It necessary to build
an entirely now left nldo of tho line, but Tolwell has been preparing for this,
and already has an Idea of his line-up for next fall, Tho bnclcfleld will bo Intact
and will bo strengthened by tho addition of Ebio, of the scrubs, nnd Wheeler, who
joined tho team too lato to be at any vuluo this lesson. Cblo was tho most
finished football player on rrnnklln Klold last fall, and If ho had been ollglblo
would havo had llttlo troublo earning 11 regular position. Wheoler Is destined
ti bo nnother Stevenson, according to tho opinions of shrewd football mon. Thla
Will mean that I'enn will havo 11 backfleld second to none, while tho line, with
Crane, Young, Berg, TIUol, Mnynnrd, tho .freshman star, nnd Bovera'l others will
bo just as atrong as the powerful 1016 forwaid lino.
Colgate Loses Onlu Two Men
"lOLOATn, conquerors of Brown In tho most aurprltlng gamo of- tho 1916
'-' season, will loso only two men. Tho two men lost, howovcr, nro tho roal
backbono of tho Hamilton .elovon. Thoy oro Andeison, tho wonderful quarter
back, who Is reputed td bo tho best combination man In tho Hast, nnd West, gen
erally picked as tho best tackle In tho land. Colgate's orfonHo was built nbout
Anderson, nnd tho llttlo quarterback did everything that was asked, ot him. Ho
could punt, dropklck, run tho onds, forwaid pans, had a wonderful head and
was biff wnough to buck tho lino If necessary. Altogether hoana a wonderful
combination man, nnd his loss will affect Colgate In 1017 as wIllNho absonco of
West, who was tho beat tacklo turned out by the New York Htato oloven In years;
but tho presence of nlno other regulars and a hoit of second strlm men makes
It certain that Bankhart (If ho returns to Colgate) will havo u team oven mora
powerful than tho great eleven of tho lost season.
A Wealth of Material at Tufts
THE5 real surprlso of the 191B season was Tufts, and unless unforeseen circum
stances deprlvo the llttlo New England Institution of star players who nro
listed to return next fall, Whalen'a cloven Is duo for nnother wonderful season.
Only two m'en aro lost from tho team tbtit defeated Harvard and went through
on unusual schedule, with only eighteen players In tho vnrslty squad. Tho men
lost nre Captain Westcott, n marvelous back, who was burled on 11 small team
for years, and Hulllvnn, a quarterback, who. has prmed himself a better genoral
than any pilot In tho East. Westcotl'sloss will be the greatest blow, an ho Is
recognized by opposing teams ui onu of tho best all round backs In recent years.
Tufts counts Upon tta Incoming material nnd tho remarkable work of "Dinger"
Doano to Pull it through next fall. Hill Hollenback.'former Tenn star, now coach
t Syracuse, declares that Doane Is the greatest line plunger ho evor has seen,
not excluding Ted Coy and Jim Cormlck. Therefore It Is easy to see that teams
playing Tufts will have u most interesting afternoon,
Ella Also Arc Fortunate
WITH only threo regulars departing from tho Vnlo eleven v!at came with a
rush late In tho season. "Tnd" Jonca should have llttlo troublo building nn
other powerful team. The Ells' will lose only throo men nnd hao the best nee
ond string squad In the Kast, barring possibly Penn. Harry I-cgore, a wonder-
Ifut combination man and a brilliant all round performers atoseky, considered
an All-American prospect, nnd Larry Fox, the giant I'hlladclphlnn, who starred
In the Princeton and Harvard gumes, are the plnyora Jonca loses, and he has
a wealth of excellent material at hand, Kcmpton, tho freshman captain and
quarterback, Is hailed as the greatest all round back Yale 1ms had In ten years,
and he. Is1 slated to till Legore's place. With throe other freshman stars and'
the second string nnd scrub men from this season Jones should be ablo tn turn
out a team superior; to the 1PIG aggregation In every way. The 1017 team will
4 have more confidence than the team that pulled the unexpected surprise by
Seating Harvard and Princeton, and also will have the advantage of a full
season -unde,r the Jonea system.
Nine Regulars Back at Brown
IAST but' by no means the least. Drown must bo considered. Sprague, a
a center, whose defensive nullity was overlooked In the showering of praise
Von the marvelous Pollard.'ond Word, a veteran und powerful tachle, are the
only regulars the prynonauis lose, and Coach Robinson, has unusual second
Utrtne material Ortnsby and Sturphy, two valuable backs, are scheduled to
graduate, but as each entered Drown when the freshman rule was in force thov

Davis was fin err as tho manager ot a team

Johnson simply advised Davis to take up

READY FOR FIGHT
Expected at Meeting of
National League Chiefs
TWO CLUBS ON MARKET
Hy CHANDLER D. RICIIJER
On Tuesday the National league will
hold Its forty-first annual meeting and un
less nil signs fall It will bo the forty-llr.it
annual quarrel. Kor some reason or other
tha National League magnates do not seem
to agree and year after year a stormy
session results, nnd the wonder of It la that
thti owners stick together so closely when
other 'factions step Into tlui argument.
If we nre to believe a few of the mag
nates It will be a harmonious meeting, but
there are others who predict trouble, and
who nro going to New York Intent upon
stirring It up Ono of the belligerents Is
Harney Drcyfuss, owner of the Pirates, who
Insists that Carry Herrmann is not worthy
of the position of chairman of the National
Commission, nnd ho Insists that he 'will
carry enough otes to assuro tho ousting of
tha Clnclnmitl magnate as the head of
oaseuaus supreme court.
Dieyfuss claims the support of two or
three magnates, whoso iccent remarks
would lead one to bellove that they nre In
favor of the" National Commission ns now
constituted. So matter what the result of
the National League's vote on this subject
may happen to be, thero Is certain to be
trouble, as It Is generally understood that
the American I.iugiio will not stand for
two National Leaguers on the commission,
While the main lliiht Ih the senior leactm
will bo on the Instruction of Its delegate
to the reorganisation of the National Com
mission,, thero aro many other subjects
which a ro going to cause the owners more
worry than they have any Idea of,
It Is believed that tha new form ot con
tract, adopted by the National Commission
at Its recent meeting In Chicago, will be
accepted by the National League and that
the club owners will order tho distribution
of contracts. This will be hitch No. 1 In
the "harmonious" session. The Ilaseball
I'laers' fraternity Is determined to fight
nny move on tha part of magnates to
squelch them, and there are certain things
uuuui mo new contracts mat are not suit
ablo to them, and President Kultz can be
depended upon to mako a strenuous fight.
Ono National League magnato predicts
tho sale of two franchises at the coming
meeting, which probably win mean tha
ousting1 of two managers, while another
pilot Is slated to go. It Is generally be
lieved that the 8t Louis Cardinals are for
nalo nnd tha other club probably lit the
Iloston U raves. President Dbbets, of the
Dodgers, recently announced that hla Vn.
tlonal League champions were for sale, but
as he does not want more than a million
and a half, tho Dodgers cannot be Included
In tha list of salable clubs.
Usual Trades s
There will be the usual trades and It
would not be surprising If Manager Moran,
of the Phils, pulled one or two deals,
counted upon to strengthen the local team.
Moran has two or three men he would like
to trade to other teams, according to Dame
Humor, and unless tha dope goes wrong
there will be several clubs anxious to bid
for the platers.
Moran has proved himself a David
Harum In other deals with National
League plIoU,nnd the fans can rest as
sured that he will get at least an even
break, Just who the players that are on
the market haonen to be is a mvitrv
Moran refuses to divulge their names, fear
ing uiai a aup-up on any ueai would affect
the harmony In the ranks.

floor tonight nt Welghtman Itsll In the
opening game of the local collegiate season
against the Urslnus quintet there will be
two freshmen In the line-up. These first
year men who will be given a thorough try
out on the Ited and Illue varsity team are
Johnny Lavan and Emery. Lavan comes
from HI. Joe's and was formerly one of the
stars of that five.
Jourdet hAs been giving all of his ma
terial long Iryouts trying to select the fast
est nnd best players from the great mass
of candidates and believes he has succeeded
In getting together nnother winning combi
nation Lost yenr, with material which
looked extremely poor on paper, largely due
to the lack ot weight,. Jourdet developed one
of tha best teams that ever represented
l'cnn, With these men ho won tho Intercol
legiate championship. The season ended In
a tie with Princeton, but In the play-off the
lied and Blue trounced the Orange and

Little la known of the strength of the

but the men who will take part In tha con

Against this array of unknown talent
Jourdt will line his team up with Connolly
and Lavan nt tho forward position, JefCord

tutes will include Clark, Ivory, Williams
It Is expected by the members of the Penn
team nnd Coach Jourdet that Urslnus will
bo rather easy picking for tho Jted and

likely that all of tho substitutes will be
given n chance to play a few minutes In the
game, Just to show what they can do under
Tho "Varsity game Is not scheduled to
