JJ to tho University of Oregon football eleven for lis fnirprlnlng anil clonn-cut
victory over Bob I'olwell's rctm team. Wo do eotiRrattilnto orCRon for ita
eplendld performnncc; but nftcr cnrofully lending tho detailed ileseiiiitlon of tho
Sftme, ono ennnot fnll to rcroRiiIzo tho fart that I'oiin lachcil tho physical cotldb
tlon necessary for a grueling battle. Coach Folwoll und Captain Matliewe
declared beforo the gnino that tho Kcil and llluo tcatu'wan In perfect ntinpo and
ready for a grueling battle, but bofoio yralerday's battle was long under wny It
was apparent that Fnlwoli's men had lost tho snap and dash so notlceablo ,in
their play during tho last few weeks of tho regular season. I'enn wetiticnod grad
ually after tho nrst few minutes of play and was worn down by tho heavier mid
better conditioned Oregon cloven. There la no question ubout Oregon's strength,
and Bezdok deserve-? gicat credit for tho brilliant victory; but It did not beat tho
came I'enii team that gao such a dazzling oNhlbltlon against Cornell on Thanhs
Condition Decided Issue
"CUrt bo It from us to pull tho "1-told-you-i-o" ntuff, but perhaps the reader will
recall that early last week wo ntated that unless Oregon was greatly overrated
Penn was duo for n. trouncing. In this article, for tho writing of which wo wero
chilled by other critics, It was ntated that Pcnn's chance for victory depended
upon Its ability to got tho Jump on Oregon and lalto tho light out of I In1
Pacific coast eleven by piling tip an early lead. It also was salil that I'enn prnb
. nbly would not feel the Inch of condition until thu last halt of tho game. Such
was the case. Tho Rod nml llluo outplayed Oregon early in the gome, and had
several opportunities to score, but tho "punch" was inlsslog. Lnto In the game
tho superior physical condition of tho Oregonlans wns apparent, nnd th" heavy
backs toro tho heretofore InvinClblo Pcntt lino to ribbons. Tho beat teams In
tho East wero unable to matte an Impression on Penn's lino during the season,
and It Is not icasonablo to suppose that Oiegon, with an old-fashioned stylo of
straight plunges Into the line, could gain so easily It tllo lted and Uluu tram
was on edge.
mistake to Arrange Game
THE game may bo considered a. great success from' a Penn standpoint, when
tho slzo of tho receipts Is considered, but It cost the Red and IJluo qulto a lot
ot prostlge. Tho primary object of tho gumo was to swell tho receipts of tho
football season, 'and in this lespoct It was a success. It Is doubtful, however, if
tho football committee will petmlt another Penn team to tnlco tho journey across
the continent for a game unless arrangements can bo mndo tu glvo tho men
m'oro time on tho Coast for practice. Penn was not nblo to get much work prior
to tho game, but probably would not Imvo avnllod It3elf of the opportunity if it
had been on tho sceno of battlo earlier. Pol well merely made tho mistako of mis
Judging tho condition of his men. IIo thought they wero tight bceauso they looked
Just as well as they did during tho season, but ho failed to allow for tho lack of
stamina duo to breaking training nnd tho nbsonco ot stienuous work to brlntf tho
men back to form.
Army and Navy Recruiting Athletes
ATHLETIC authorities at West Point and Annapolis nro worried over tho
. publicity given tho scramlilo of tho two teams for promising athletes, now
attending other collogcs. According to tho story tho Army was congratulating
itself upon lining up lluthaway, captain-elect of the University of Indianafool
ball team, for an appointment, and was of tho opinion that "Chick" Harloy,
the wonderful Ohio halfback, also would enter West Point next year. It is said
that certain persons at Annapolis .ho did not approve ot tho corralling of
Oliphant and A'klul by tho Army then arranged to get an appointment for Corey,
Nebraska's captain, nnd Mc freight, tho Wushlngton and Jefferson fullback. To
go tho Army ono better tho Navy Is said to have mudo overtures to lforley und
that tho All-American back is considering Annapolis In preference to West Point.
Circumstances Alter Case
SHOULD this system of inducing athletic talent to outer Undo Sam's two
Institutions Lo permitted? This Is a question that is being discussed by high
"college athletic authorities. If n college used tho tiumo methods, it Is cortaln
that It would bo criticized severely; but, odd as It muy seem, every one appears
to approve ot the actions of tho Aimy and Navy, In ono way It Is un excellent
idea. It will bring into tho two branches of tho service athletes of wonderful
power, physlquo and nerve, and nt thistlmo they uro needed badly. It will
also servo to placo Undo Sam's two Institutions iu tho front rank in athletics. All
of tho players mentioned nto stars of tho first water In moro than ono branch,
and their presence on tho two teams would mako the annual football, baseball
and basketball games between tho two Institutions of hlghor standard.
Darcy Putting It Over on Public
1I3S DAItCl" has decided to go into vaudeville boforo fighting a single bout.
J Tho Australian hn3 signed a contract, but no ono appears to know Just
how long ho will bo tied up with this work. It is tho old, old gamo of slinging
tho public, and it is hoped that tho venture proves a frost. If Darcy would prove
to the public that ho is the wonderful tighter Tex Ricknrd and a few other
promoters tell us ho is, then ho -would bo woluomo to whatever ho can got out
of vaudeville; but what assurance have wo that ho Is not another Bill Hqulrcn or a
Dave Smith? Wondeiful as Is thu iccord made by Darcy against Amorlcan boxers
In Australia, it is no moro hnpresslvo than tho ones toted to this country by Squires
and Smith. Fistic fans may recall tho great excitement cicnted by tho arrival of
Bill Squires in this country many yeais ago. Squires was a heavyweight who
was billed as tho coming champion of tho world, and when he arrived In this
country the newspapers and light fans wero ovon moro cnthusiustlc than they
nro about Darcy at the present time.
Tommy Burns Stopped Squires
BILL SQUIRES'S first fight was with Tommy Iiurtis. who knocked him out
In ono round. This got to bo a favorite trick for llurna. IIo knocked tho
Australian out in Australia nnd again in Paris Just to provo that his victory was
not a llukc;-Old Jack "Twin" Sullivan stopped Squires In nineteen rounds; Jim
Flynn turned tho trick In eight rounds nt llakenifleld, and lilll Lung, who was a
mark for every ilrst-dass American heavyweight, knocked him out thrco suc
cessive times. Such was tho record of a heavyweight who had knocked out ten
straight opponents, five of them In ono round, against Amoi lean fighters. IIo
was boosted Just as strongly as Darcy Is nt tho present time. Davo Smith, another
Australian, was greeted with ns much bluster as Darcy, and lie followed in
"quires' footsteps, Kddlo McfJoorty toppled hint over in Ills first appearance
against a high-class American boxer and then repeated tho trick. Afte.- that
Smith was easy for any ono. Before getting excited about Darcy, remember Squires
and Smith! Let Darcy show something in tho way of boxing beforo passing him
the easy money.
THE death of Eddie. Doheny, former Giant and Pittsburgh pitcher, In the
Mayfleld State Aslyum recalls to mind tho wonderful come-back this sterling
southpaw made back In 1300. Doheny was, as wild as Cy Morgan and was pro
nounced a failure with tho Giants. Ho was traded to Pittsburgh and In 1001
was ono of the leading pitchers ot the National League. Doheny worried over
the Illness of his wife and his mind becamo unbalanced. Ho was still a young man
when he was confined to the Mayfleld Asylum and tho career of one of the most
promising pitchers In the game was cut short. Doheny was ono of the hardest
hitting pitchers the gamo has produced.
kNB day, alter isa waisn announced turn
that he -would be able to take his regular turn on the mound for the "White
Box, Manager Clarence Rowland notified the famous spit-ball pitcher of his uncon
ditional release. Tho passing of "Walsh several years before his time la one ot
baseball's tragedies. Walsh pitched his arm off to win a fortune for Owner Charley
Comlakey and, suddenly went to pieces. The score has been evened, however, as
Comlskey carried Walsh for four years at an enormous salary, despite the fact
that Ed wasnot In shape to pitch. Comlskey's loyalty won him thousands of
friends In Chicago.
FED MITCHELL, the Cubs' new manager, declares that the West Point
team of 1916 was the fastest aggregation afoot he has wm during his base
tall career. Mitchell says that as a team the cadets were faster on their feet
than the Giants of 1911, 19J2 and 1913. MeGraw'u three-time pennant winners
were considered the fastest aggregate of runners In modern bsuebull. The
fo-roer Harvard coach says there waa a wealth of premising material at West Point
last spring and that one or two ot the cadets would develop into major league
stars with the proper schooling.
