Copyi-ight, 1$21, New York Tribune Inc.
Any writer who Is called upon to employ a critical faculty in any re?
spect is always doomed to displease at least 98 per cent of those involved.
For one example, you can boost a ballplayer fifty-six times, but criti?
cise him once, and you have him feel that you are hounding him.
Pleasing various undergrads and alumni throughout the football sea?
son is an even harder job.
Each one thinks the other is getting alt the best of it. All of which
adds to the gayety of existence, showing as it does an intense enthusiasm
fcbove all other things.
"Suppose," writes a Harvard man, "Yale and Princeton both beat Har?
vard. We're outplayed or morally beaten (via the press), anyhow, even
when we actually win by big scores. So what difference does it make?"
Whereupon he enters the following rebuttal ;
Pre? Crushes Crimson in Annual Clash
You've gone all wrong in yoiir old song,
You're wrong beyond a doubt?
You're wrong, because you say there was
A time Yale's tide was out.
Butt truth to tell, we know full well,
Whate'er the score might be,
The press ivould hail old Eli Yale
As victor morally.
Year after year the salty tear
Has marred John Haiiard's face,
Because the, more they'd raise the sco -e
The greater their disgrace.
They'd think they'd won until "The Sun,"
The Tribune or "The Mail,"
In headlines grand, would tell the land:
"Harvard outplayed by Yale."
Well, Hardwick gored and Brickley scored.
And other things took place;
And Casey ran and e'en Mahan
Across Y ale's goal would race.
What matter it? Why, not a hit!
We falter and turn pale?
Poor Harvard men, you've lost again,
The press has won for Yale!
In ranking football teams at the end of a season, the standing of the
clubs in a victory and defeat column doesn't always mean a lot.
For example, one could hardly figure out the respective ratings of
Cornell and Penn State in any such fashion.
Cornell had no hard game on its schedule, where Penn State had to go
out against Harvard, Georgia Tech, Carnegie Tech, the Navy and Pitts?
burgh to call it a year.
Princeton's schedule was far harder than Yale's. Suppose Yale had
bumped against the Navy and Chicago for October tests?
Harvard also took more serious chances against Georgia, Penn State
and Centre, all first-class opponents.
To remain unbeaten means a lot only when ranking opponents are
There will likely be more intersectional tests next year than ever
The West has tasted blood and the East hardly cares to stand pat on
the 1921 interesectional record.
The Army and Rutgers haven't been able to give Notre Dame much
worry, but if Notre Dame could be brought East against some team ?uch
as Lafayette, Penn State or Cornell there would be quite a flurry.
Princeton goes to Chicago next October, and that will be a starter.
Penn State and Georgia Tech, by drawing 28,000 to the Polo Grounds,
showed what keen interest could be stirred up in this way.
The Floating Pass
"How is it those forward passes your team works seem so easy to
handle?" we asked Knute Rockne, of Notre Dame.
"In the first place," he said, "my men know how to take a ball out cf
the air. In the second place our passers are taught to throw a light ball
that floats, after a fashion. It flies with speed enough, but it doesn't land
heavily in the receiver's hands. It is an easy ball to catch."
Which carries out the idea expressed of old that the forward pass?
ing game is more of a science than many coaches think it is and that
amazingly few football players have ever perfected it in anything ap?
proaching mechanical cxpertness.
With just that flourish of the racquet flexed
To the intensive follow'-through, that last
Caress of feathery stroking that whips past
His plunging adversary the pellet vexed,
Bewildered, catapulted; just that next
To indistinguishable posturing cast,
That hint of gallery play, of gesture vast,
Of na?vet? with Jovian pose complexed
The master swaggers to the win. Oh, grant
An air, a taint of the dramatic, e'en
An eye acquisitive of the footlights' sheen:
What, then? Precisely that gay, militant
Self-consciousness it is that comes to mean
Genius which shall set torch to adamant.

bad shape that only the kickers were
permitted to use it, the regulara going
to Alumni Field for a soft scrimmage,
passing and punting drill.
A feature of the drill was the ap

the varsity line-up, Pfann, Ramsey,
Kaw and Lechler making up one, and
Wahl, Carey, Gould and Olney another.
Post and Colleson also got into the

In the past Williams has confined its

Harvard retained its lead in the race
for the Metropolitan Class B squash

noon by trouncing the Columbia team,
six matches to one. Yale also
triumphed, getting the verdict over
Princeton by 4 to 2. However, the

As bold, bad champions of the

Texas Favorite With McGraw
That the Yankees will train in Texa
there is little doubt. The Lone Sta
State for years has been popular wit
the big leagues. With the exception o
the spring of 1919, John J. McGraw ha
taken his Giants to the land of the long
horn since 1907. McGraw has wo
more pennants in the interim than an
vther major league manager.
The Yankees in that per'od ha\
fluctuated generally between the state
of Georgia and Florida. Last year the
tried Shreveport, La., and under Fran
Chance, back in 1914, they broke tr.
routine by going to Houston, Tex.
In all probability Houston will t

The Giants, of course, will return to
San Antonio, Tex., for spring training,
and in all probability will engage the
White Sox in an indefinite series of
spring exhibitions, finishing in a joint
tour northward with Kid Gleason's

train at Sequin, Tex., about thirty
miles from San Antonio.
It will be remembered that the
Giants and White Sox toured the world
together in the winter of 1913-'14 with?
out the least strain in amicable rela?
tions. Other American League clubs

The great majority of the little fel?
lows are anxious to have the new
agreement so amended that circuits
which scorn the draft by those of
higher classification must be brought
buck into the fold. Since the abroga?
tion of the draft on certain minor
leagues the whole scheme has failed
dismally. Where hundreds of play?
ers formerly were called t.-> major
circuits they were summoned this
year by twos and threes.
Obscure minor leagues have de?
pended on development of players to
make both ends meet. Now the mar?

vote for the restoration of the draft
