Gregg taught Wood the trick when the

McGraw's chances for winning the National League pennant
would be greatly increased if the erstwhile Pirate and $22,500 beauty
should come through at the ninth hour with a few victories.
Although McGraw realized when he landed O'Toolc from Pitts
burgh that he was taking a chance, he also knew that if Marty
should happen to get a good start, he would well be worth the
chance. So far, O'Toole has been of little value to the Giants except
for relief work. His customary wildness has been the positive
factor in his failure to come up to expectations.

GRIDIRON NEWS GLEANED FROM LEADING COLLEGE CAMPS
By EDWABD H. BUSHNELL
Pennsylvania's football authorities will
make gridiron history by their action In
deciding' to number their players in tho
g.in.e with Gettysburg n Saturday.
Geitvsburg's ronsent to the innovation is
quite as notable. These two teams xvlll
be the first college elevens in America
to demonstrate the worth of this pro
gressive reform. The reform consists in
sewing numbers on the backs of the foot
ball Jerseys of such n height as to make
them xislble in all parts of the field.
Thus the spectators, by reference to thelt
progrnms, can instantly identify exery
player on the field, can tell xvho makes
touchdowns, Important runs nnd tackles,
nnd will have before them the answers
to countless other questions which spec
tators and newspaper writers have len
accustomed to ask for In x'nin.
It had taken several years of argu
ment to have tlii reform considered with
approval Mont of the big universities of
the Knst have shied nt It, and even the
Utiles Committee Itself has sidestepped
It. PennsxhHiila's attitude has always
been trlendlv Pour years ago tho xvilter
suggested this, plan to the Pennsylvania
and Cornell managements for their an
nual Thanksgiving Pay game. The
Qunker coaches, alter a discussion of the
pros and cons, ngretd to It ,So did Coi
nell at first, hut two days before the
game the Illiucnns nsked to be excused
from trying the experiment.
So far there has never been a big col
lege game wheie all the plaxers were
numlieied, though several high school
teams In and around Boston and New
York haw been doing It for sevenil years
nnd with marked sueeess Last fall Part
mouth numbered Its players for its final
game with the Carlisle Indians plaxed lu
Nexv York. The Indian players, hoxvexer,
were not so numbered, and while the e.
perlment was hailed with delight by the
Goths m football public and scribes, It wns
not a fair test.
About the onlv objection ever made
was the fear that a star player might
thus he identified by the opposition and
either be a mark for their attack or
he more easily watched. This, of nurse.
Is ndH'uIous on its faee, because when
two teams take the field they instantls
know tne identity of all their opponents
And suppose the opposition did know
their opposing plavers, what good would
this knowledge do them? A number
sewed on the back of Brlckley's Jersey
wouldn't lessen his goal. kicking ability
in the leu, hut it would always enable
the ape. taturs to identify the Crimson
captain. And this is the sole purpose
of the reform. .
Judging fiom the aftermath of the "In-
I terpretatton meeting" of tho football
, roar hen, rule makers and otllcials In New
' Vork Saturday night, there are some ,
louche who would find a muthr-d to
i evade the lule passed by the committee
lat winter forbidding the , oach to walk
j up and down the side lines. Some astute
individual pointed out trial since tne rules
do not speclfiiallv order the coach to
tuke a seat on the bench with the play
ers, he might be eligible to a't as ope
of the linesmen, and that In this posi
tion he would be right on top of the
p'ay. and. If he desires and could get
sway with It, he might still coach or j
watch the woik of his players.
That sort of an evasion might be
technicallv possloie If the men In charge
of Intercollegiate football were not gen
tlemen But this sort of trickery is
foreign to all intercollegiate ethics and '
wouldn't be tolerated for a moment by
any self-respecting university It is also
reported that as a result of the discussion
at this meeting a request will lie tent
out to the members of the Rules Com
mittt.e asking them to vote on the prop
osition that coa, hes be allowed on the
side lines by mutual agreement of the
two captains, no matter what the rules
say on il)l point- j

football Rules Committee represent no
one In particular, nnd if the two cap
tains acreed a touchdown might count
ten points as xvell as six. At the rame
time the authority of the Rules Com
mittee hns been accepted without ques
tion, arii! If a precedent were started by
which two teamR would disrcgaril this
particular rule and flaunt Intercollegiate
sentiment It wouldn't be long before they
might be xx'nlvlng some other rules nnd
wc would have all kinds of trouble.
The only objection made to the rule Is
that It prohibits honest coaches from
utilizing this position to xxntch the work
of their men, and they can get this In
formation onlv fiom the preliminary
games. It Is rather late In the day to
taise this point, and since the rule is
on the book it ought to be observed to
There is no more reason why a foot
hall coach should be on the field than
that there Is for a track coach to be on
the track during a dual or Intcicolleglate

tialner3 and coaches from being on the
