EDDIE PLANK SIGNS WITH
FEDERAL—BENDER MAY CO
Veteran Southpaw Wants to Go West
to Play—Mack Says Gettysburger
Is After the Money and He Wishes
Former Pitcher Luck
Gettysburg, Ha., Dec. 3. —'All doubt
existing as to the baseball fate of kid
die Plank was dispelled yesterday aft
ernoon when tilie great portsider affixed
his John Hancock to a Federal League
contract. Although scouts of many
teams had visited the deposed Mack
twirler, it was not until yesterday that
an agreement could be reached
any of till em. Having an engagement
with Plank, Treasurer Goldman, of the
.Baltimore Feds, drifted into town yes
terday morning to talk matters over.
Closeted together most of the day, the
two men discussed the situation fully
a.nd when they parted Gettysburg s
Ibaseball idol had east his fortunes with
tjhe new organization.
While officials of the Baltimore clu'b
secured Plank's signature, it is said the
contract did not call for his services
to be given to that club, but that it
was a general contract, and he could
l>e sent to any team in their circuit.
•Local people believe, however, that
there is an understanding between the
men and that Plank will play wit'h
either ■Chicago or St. Louis.
No information was given out concern
ing the length specified in the contract,
although it is generally regarded to be'
a long-term contract at a good salary.
Plank has repeatedly said lie did not
have to play ball, because his savings
of the years he has been with the Ath
letics are all that he needed.
Plank last night admitted he signed
the contract, but would not divulge the
terms of tihe agreement or with which
club he expected to be identified.
Plan "has always been considered onti
of the greatest pit hers the game has
over known. He was born in Gettysburg.
Pa., and was graduated at Gettysburg
College. He never played professional
1 >aseba 11 except as a nietnlber of the Ath
letics, having signed 'with Connie Mack
•iii 1901. Plank and Harry Davis are
the only men still on the Athletics' list
of players who were with the team in
Sts first year.
Plauk's record with the Athletics is
a brilliaiut one. Each year the veteran
southpaw has done his share toward
(keeping the Athletics in the race and
ilias always been a factor in winning
pennants and world's championships for
the Macktneu. Plank pitched in each
world's series the Athlrtivs engaged in,
except in 1910, when Coombs and Ben
der did the twirling. His pitching was
one of the features of the 1913 series
■with the Giants, and this year he lost
:i l-to-0 game to the Braves on mis pi ays
in the ninth inning.
For the last two or three seasons
'.Manager Mack has had trouble in get
ting Plank to sign a contract, anil short
ly after the dose of the world 's series
of this year Eddie was placed on the
•waiver list along with Bender and
< bombs. It is believed that Bender will
also sign with the Federals.
When Connie Mack was informed
last night that Plank had signed with
the Federals and was asked if lie would
try to prevent Eddie from quitting or
ganized baseball, Connie said: "No,
imteed. Eduie is after the money, and
1 wish him all the luca in the w'orkl."

FRED WELSH LACKS SPEED
Champion Slow and Joe Shugrue Out
points Him—Winner Hm All
but Two Bounds
New York, Dec. 3.—Joe Shugrue
made good his promise to muss up Fred
die Welsh at Madison Square Garden
last night. He whipped Welsh in
every round but the second and tenth.
Welsh managed to make them even.
Th* lightweight champion never was
in the running and if Shugrue had had
more of a sting to his punches he might
have walked off with the title. Welsh
plainly was in bad form. He seemed
stale and he was absolutely devoid of
speed of any kind. Shugrue beat him
to the punch, and except when the
champion jolted the Jersey boy's head
back with left jabs, the only punch
Fred seemed able to land.
Shugrue was on top of his man eter
nally and made a show of Welsh at
close quarters. The Knglishman's ribs
were ruddy from the continual thumps
landed there. Welsh seemed to spare
his right hand throughout, as if he lva l
gone into the ring with it in poor shape.
Neither man was oft' his feet. There
was not a mark on Shugrue at the tin
ish, while a cut appeared over Welsh's
Welsh left the ring quickly after the
bout. He t'elt that h,. hail been beat
en bv the rushing little Jersey boy,j
and besides, the gallery was riding!
him hard for his indifferent showing.

No Definite Action Is Taken but Under

a Forerunner of Establishment of
New York, Dec. 3. —Columbia's stu
dents put themselves on record yester
day in no uncertain terms for football
when 1,400 turned out for the mass
meeting and cheered every mention of
football. There was general disappoint
ment that the promised surpri-*> was
not an announcement thHt footbail

dergraduates feel confident that in the
end they will succeed in bringing the
sport back to the campus.
Ln a short address President Butiei.|
skillfully avoided a mention of foot
ball, but he stated that what the stu-;
dents wantel and what the student'
board wanted the university wanted.
The students want football, and want
it badly, according to the enthusiasm
at the meeting, but they propose to
go about getting it with all due care i
As the students filed into tile gym
nasium cards were handed to each ask
ing whether lie would go out for a var
sity football eleven next year if such
were authorized and also whether he
would give $2 for the support of such
a team. The first question was answered
in the affirmative by ninety-five stu

by -00 who weighed over 150 poupds.
On th«v cards handed in 1,061! agreed
to pay the fee. Many cards are vet to

It was marie plain yesterday that
the authorities have not shown their
hand in any way and do not intend
to do so. When the matter is brought
up to their attention in the regular
way by the Student Board they will
then rule on the proposal. The Stu
dent Board has no intention of press
ing any such proposals in the near
future for fear of being accused of
hasty and ill-advised measures.
Silver loving cups were presented
to Arthur Howe, formerly of Yale,
Heorge Lamade, formerly 'of Missouri,
and Charles Hann, formerly of Har

the two class football teams.

SOUGHT CHILD FOR ADOPTION
Counsel Admits Advertisement Was
Printed ln San Francisco ln
London, Dec. 3.—The Slingsby legiti
macy suit, by which Lieutenant C. B.
Slingsby, formerly of the royal navy,
now of San Francisco, is seeking to es
tablish the legitimacy of a child which
he claims as his own in order that the
child may inherit an Knglish estate,
was begun yesterday in the probate
Lieuenant Slingsby retold the cir
cumstances of his marriage, to which
his relatives objected because his wife
was A Catholic.' He testified to re
ceiving a cablegram from his wife, who
had gone to San Francisco so as to be
among her own people, announcing that
a son had been born. The point was
raised that the birth certificate gave a
wrong 'birthplace, naming it as Grant
avenue, but this was nltered subse
quently by affidavit to MacAllister
street, San Francisco.
Counsel admitted that when Mrs.
Slingsby reached Star Francisco it was
doubtful whether the baby would be
born alive or dead and that an adver
tisement seeking a child for adoption
was inserted in a newspaper. The hear
ing was adjourned.
Lieutenant Slingsb.v inherited an
English estate for himself and by the
will of the Rev. Charles Slingsbv an
additional estate of $500,000 was to
go to Lieutenant Sli.ngsby's heir.
Mrs. Slingsiby, wife of the Lieuten
ant, gave birth to a child in San Fran
cisco in 1910. Testimony was taken
before the District Attorney of San
Francisco on a charge of false certifica
tion of hirth. and testimony was given
to the effect that Mrs. Slingsby's child
had died and that another child had
been substituted by a San Francisco
physician. The Lieutenant anil his wife
later went to England to establish the
legitimacy of the child which they
claimed as their own.

14-inch Ones Are Better

pertinent is not ready to install 16-inch '
guns on battleships, according to testi- I
monv given before the House Commit- j
tee on Naval Affairs yesterday by Rear;
Admiral Strauss, Chief of the Bureau -
Hear Admiral Strauss expressed the !
opinion that 14-inch guns had reached j
such a high degree of efficiency that j
nothing would be gained rn effective- J

The committee was impressed with !
Rear Admiral Strauss' testimony rela- j

inch guns in view of the reports that I
had been received of the deadly execu j
tion done by the 42-centimeter guns |
used against the fortifications in Prance ,

Th impression seems to be quite gen

maximum of armament of this class
that should be installed on battleships,
at least for the present.

NIAGARA FALLS WILL BE DRV
Peculiar Pebble Found by Scientist
Leads Him to Prophesy
Pittsburgh, Dec. 3. —A pebble found
in Beaver county caused Dr. A. K. Ort
mann, scientist of Carnegie Museum,
to predict yesterday that a thousand
years from now Niagara Fails will be
dry. The pebble in shape resembles
a small beetle.
The odd little stone led Dr. Ort
mann to consider the "oscillations" uf
the earth's surface.
The "oscillations" led him to a par
ticular "oscillation," which, he said,
is raising the northeast end of Lake
Erie and sending its water to the south
west instead of toward Niagara Falls.
The ultimate deduction—the drying up
of the great waterfall —is scientifically
