Tech's Mighty Basketball
Team Out For Records
Ono of tlia biggest of disappoint
ments, wai the telogram from Scott
High of Toledo, that the Buckeye
eleven had disbanded for the season.
That means that there will bo no
contest foe championship honors,
Ixcal fans still believe that the
Maroon eleven has the punch to trim
the Buckeyes.
Out in Kane they "think that they
have a team,, and question Tech's
right to the honor. They have scored
255 points to 50 by their opponents.
They also siy that they havo not
been scored upon at home. All they
•want i 3 60 per cent, of the gate re
ceipts to corfle in for Tech to "play
with." Then Tech will get the bal
ance after several hundred dollars
are paid to officials and for the field.
But the Tech management is be
ginning to feel ashamed of itself to
ask the people to come to see a
championship contest and then stage
a track meet, as has been the case
the last two Saturdays. Then there
is another team in Rochester, Pa.,
that wants to take a trip to this city
to play Tech. Chances are they
want a chance to go through the
Capitol, and this is one plan they
have in view of coming East.
If Kane and Rochester can to
gether pick an eleven, the Tech
scrubs will play them. Don't forget
that the Tech reserves still have to
lose a contest. Philadelphia and
Pittsburgh papers have become alive
to the fact that there is a real cham
pion team here in Dauphin county,
and those papers are not going to
take much account of these little
lligh schools, whom Tech could
spot 100 points.
Whoop Up Basketball
With the football season passed,
Tech athletes will turn their atten
tion to basketball. One champion
ship has been annexed and now
Tech will try to repeat its cham-
Xiionsliip of last season. It is reason
able to expect that they will, as the
same squad remains. As for track?
Well, Tech has always set the pace
for the last half dozen years. Throe
championships for one High school
the same year would be some rec
ord. But it would not be surprising
to see the Maroon boys do the trick.
It would be a great feat.
Roster of Battles
Following the Alumni game, Tech
has an open date for January 3. The
remainder of the schedule is as
January 10, I,ancaster, at home.
January 17, Allentown, at home.
January 24, York, away.
January 31, Lebanon, away.
February 7, Lancaster, away.
February 14, McKinley Manual
Training, of Washington, pending.
February 21, York, at home.
February 28, Lebanon, at home.
March 7, Reading, away.
March 8, Allentown, away.
March 14, open.
March 15, Steelton, away.
March 21, Reading, at home.
March 28, open.
Out For a Record
From the schedule it will be seen
that all but one of the regular con
tests will be in the Central Penn
sylvania Basketball League. The
game pending with the Washington
team on Valentine Day is the excep
tion. At a recent -meeting of the
league officials it was decided to give
a cup to the runnerup in the league.
The Rensselaer Polytechnic cup is
for permanent possession to the
winner. Then the Reading Times
cup has to be won three times for
possession. Reading, Central and
Tech each have a leg on this trophy.
Bearing in mind what Tech did
lust year, it looks reasonable to ex
pect Tech to repeat. Huston is the
only member lost by graduation.
To take his place are half a dozen
good boys who should make the
quintet stronger than ever. "Mikq"
Shaffner is the student manager.
First Game With Alumni
Two weeks from Friday the Tech
nical High school basketball squad
will open its season playing the
initial contest against the Alumni
five. It will be a Yuletide affair
staged at Chestnut street liali, and
the former Maroon students who
are home for the holidays will be
on hand to see the Central Pennsyl
vania champions start the season,
and incidentally will enjoy the
dance to follow the contest.
Powerful Material
Tech has practically the same
squad left over front last season,
that won the honors in the Central
Pennsylvania Basketball League.
Captain "Goldie" Huston will bo
missed as will "Dutch" Miller, a
substitute. Huston's place will be
hard to fill, as he was one of the
best shots Tech has ever had. From
the fifteen foot line ho could always
be relied upon to add another
Of the regulars from last season
are "Buddie" Linglo at forward;
"Doughnuts" Wilsbach at center;
Beck, Kohlman and Smith at guard.
These live players won their letter
as members of the quintet last sea
son. In the school are many other
players who are of equul caliber
with those already mentioned.
"Haps" Frank will make a bid
for the center, or a forward posi

Due to the congestion in River

Unanimously Elected Presi
dent-Secretary and Treas
urer of Organization
Sow York, Dec. 11. —John A. Hey
dlcr was elected to the combined of
fice of presidetiT-secretary-treasurer
of the National League for a three
year term at to-day's meeting of the
senior baseball organization leaders.
The three offices of the league were
combined by unanimous vote and
Heydler was elected by acclamation,
his name being the only one present
ed for the office of president.
Prior to the regular meeting of
the league leaders an informal |
discussion was held in which, Hey
dler, John Conway Toole, attorney]
for the league, and Robert Brown, of j
Louisville, were considered, for the i
vacancy. A committee which waited
on Heydler was informed that he
would not care to accept the presi
dency -unless he were elected for a
term of years. This was agreed to
and the election was made for the
term of threo years.
The presidency and secretary-treas
urership had been separate offices
sir.ee 1907 when Heydler, then secre
tary to the president, was elected to
the position of secretary.
Heydler was born in La Fargeville,
N. Y., in 1869, and his first connection
with baseball was as a newspaper
correspondent in 1893. From 1894 to
1897 he was a substitute umpire in
the National League. In 1898 he was
made a member of the regular um
pire staff, but resigned in midseason
following a dispute on- the Polo
grounds. *
In 1902 he was placed in chargj
of the National League averages and
the following year was made secre
tary to Harry Pulllam, then presi
dent of the league. He became sec
retary-treasurer of the Nationnl Lea
gue in 1907 and in 1909, following the
death of Pulliam, filled out the un
expired term of the late president.
Following the; election of Governor
John K, Tener to the presidency of
the league in 1914, Heydler conducted
the affairs of the organization until
Tener assumed office in 1915. Heydler
has been acting president since Gov
ernor Tener resigned last summer.
The league reduced its board of di
rectors from its eight club presi
dents to a board of five, with four
club presidents and the league presi
dent, the latter to serve as president
ex-offlcio. The number of members
of the board was raised from five to
eight two years ago.
The ne#v board of directors con
sists of Presidents Herrmann, Eb
etts, Baker and Hempstead of the
Cincinnati, Brooklyn, Philadelphia
and New York clubs respectively.
The following are in attendance at
the meeting: Boston, Arthur Wise and
Walter Hapgood; New York, Harry |
Hempstead and John Foster; Brook
lyn, Charles Ebbetts; Chicago, Wil
liam Veech; Pittsburgh, Barney Drey
l'uss; Cincinnati, August Herrmann;
St. Louis, James C. Jones; Philadel
phia, William Baker.
The board of directors refused to
permit Fred Mitchell, president-man
ager of the Chicago Cubs to take a
seat at the meeting, he refusing to
answer when questioned as to wheth
er he would manage the club next
year or not.
August Herrmann, chairman of the
National Commission, is anxious to
learn just how far his fellow mag
nates mean to go in putting the skids
under him as leader of baseball's su
preme court. Harry Hempstead, the
New York owner, came out to-day
with a fiat statement against retain
ing Herrmann. He prepared his re
marks with a declaration of his rec
ognition of Herrmann, as a good fel
low, but he believes that a man 1 un
connected with either league should
be picked as chairman.
President Charles Ebbetts, of the
Brooklyn Club, announced to-day that
he had signed Wilbert Robinson to
continue as manager of the team for
the season of 1919. This will be
Robinson's sixth year with the Brook
lyn Club.

taking a second defeat, this time ]
from Ernest Schweimetz. He played !
at 100 scratch and attempted to j
beat Schweimetz who played at 80 ,

Kerflump! Pat Moran Drops
Out of Phillies Propelled by
Owner, Who May Sell Club
Talk about the ups and downs qf,
an elevator man! He has nothing on
the professional ballplayer. With a
dull sickening thud, William F. Baker,
president of the Philadelphia Na
tional League team, suddenly dropped
the manager, Pat Moran, yesterday, a
blow which echoed all through Pea
cock alley In the Waldorf, where the
league is holding its annual meeting.
When Bill Taft refused to be czar
of baseball he kned something.
Napoleon and Machteavelli combined
could never get along with these mad
President Baker declined to give
any reasons for putting Pat on the
toboggan and would not discuss why
he had fired a man who took a cast
olt team in 1915 and won a pennant
his first year; likewise, who kept the
club up even when Alexander and
Killifer had left.
Moran is one oS boseball's vet
erans, having been a professional
catcher for nearly a quarter of a
century. His first professional '-n
--gagement was with the Lyons Clu'o,
of the New York State League, ar.d
he broke into fast company with
the Boston Braves. Subsequently he
became a member of the Chicago Cuba
and was instrumental in helping
Frank Chance to win more than one
pennant. The Phillies secured Moran;
in 1911, and he acted as coach to the;
young pitchers until October 19. i
1914, when he was signed as manager
to succeed Charlie Dooln. In his first
season as pilot of the Phillies Moran
startled the baseball world by land
ing what was considered a misfit ag
gregation In the spring at the top of
the National League race. His subsc
uqent career Is well known to every
Philadelphia baseball fan.
Moran's contract calls for 9,000,
which is pretty steep in these days,'
but the real cause appears to be that]
the club is about to change owner--
A khaki-clad driver was trying to
drive a mule, says Tid-Bits, draw-!
ing a load of laundry, through a.
hospital gate. The mule would do
anything but pass through the gate.
"Want any 'clp, chum?" shouted
one of the hospital orderlies. "No," I
replied the driver, "byt I'd like to
know how Noah got two of these
blighters into the Ark"
Uncle Sam got Denmark's goat
at last. Copenhagen paper admits:
"What America has achieved is a
world record which no European
country can match. An army has
been created which it has been pos
sible to move to France and which
has changed the fortunes of the
war. A commercial fleet is now being
constructed which in a few years
will make America the greatest sea
power in the world; and, politically,
America has gained a leading po
sition within the circle of the Allies
which will make it indisputably
primus inter pares."
Memphis, Tenn. St. Frisco,
2:01%, world's champion stallion
and harness turf's most noted trot
ter, died at the training stable of Ed.
F. Oeers at Billings Park track of
hemorrhage, the same way as the
other champion, Lee Axworthy.
No trotter in the entire history of
the harness turf has ever raced as
hard, long and consistently as the
son of San Francisco and surely none
has won as many fast heats. The
most unique feature of this race
trotter has been the fact that he was
never raced in any of his heuts as
a trailer, but always in the front,
nosing every heat right under the
wire or what is known in turf par
lance, Just nosed out. He hardly
ever took a misstep and through his
entire racing career of four years
was either winner or a nosed out
second, being as far back as third

New York, Dec. 11. —Intercolleg-'
iate basketball will be- resumed this 1
season, and there will be no cham
pionship series and no title will be
awarded by the Intercollegiate!
League, according to an announce
ment here to-night by Ilalph Mor
gan, secretary of the league.
Mr. Morgan explained that tjie ]
decision not to award a title was
based on the fact that Columbia,
Cornell, Pennsylvania and Yale each
have two legs on the Happy trophy
and that it would be unfair to hold
a championship series which-proba
bly would result in the winning of
the championship by one of these
four, as at least two of the teams
have lost virtually all of their play
ers because of the war.
Cornell, he added, probably will
not have a team, and the schedule
will be made up only of games for
Columbia, Yale, Pennsylvania and,
Princeton. The series probably will
start on January 11.
Cincinnati, Dec. 11.—August Herr
mann, chairman of the National

Mr. Baker whether there was any

'or any department of managership
j in which I fell short. He said; 'No,
•but I've decided to make a change.'"
Baxball Commission, said to-day
! that action would be taken at the
j National League meeting in New
; York Tuesday to resume the league
i schedule and elect John Heydler as
president of the organization.
"We are going to start right where
i we were when the war stopped us,"
j said Mr. Herrmann. "We will not
| stop until the game is back upon
i its old footing. We shall vote to re
! sume the National League schedule
and we shall make John Heydler
president in name as well as In
