Tom Thorpe, captain of the Columbia
football team In 180MC who refereed
the Georgetown-Virginia game here,
picks an all-America football eleven,
which was published In the New York
Journal jesterday. and on this team is
Harry Costello, of Georgetown, for
Briefly reviewing the 1312 season.
The 13K football season will be re
rordcd In the annajs of the Popular
American college game as one or tne
most successful in the history of the
game. More good football was on
tap this past season than has been
the good fortune ot coaches and play
ers to display In many years. The Ws
teams all come into their own and by
superior playing showed themselves to
be real leaders In every department of
the game. The smaller elevens, al
though they displayed a good brand ot
football, nevertheless nave to give way
to the old-time leaders this season.
Yale. Cornell, and Pennsv lvanla were
more or less disappointing In their re
spective showings. The fault at Jsew
Haven is traceable to the coaches The
matoSal at the Connecticut college
was by far the best that they have had
in some time, but the Inability of the
coaches to h!p this material Into a
championship team Is the onlv disap
pointing element In the whole season
of superior football
At Cornell the conditions were a
creat deal different than at New
Haven. Al Sharpe had to teach an en
tlrelv new style of game and also had
to give the very new material at hand
a thorough 3now ledge of the rudiments
of football. Next reason sou may P
to see an entirely new spirit and style
of play at the Maroon College
Pennsylvania, although rather disap
jolnting at the beginning finally
ruunded into shape and acquitted them
selves In a very likely manner In the
linal game of their schedule The
oaching at the institution has beer,
criticised bv many, but the true fan t
i that And Smith had very little. If
an, first-class line nvaterial to work
with . ,
Harvard with a team composed or
veterans, are the undisputed champions.
They proved bv their showing to be
the superior of any team in the country
in every department of the game in

an All-American football team. Max

their final game against Yale they
showed themselves to be the best mold
ed team that has ever sported tne
Crimson colors. In open style football.
as well as the old-time line-smashing
game, they excelled. Brlckley and Fel
ton. who took care of the kicking game
for them, are without doubt two of the
greatest toe artists that the game has
ever known. On defense the forwards
In the first line of defense had the
knack of getting the charge on the op
ponent, and then of carrying the first
effort through by a mlghtly second ef
fort, which accounts to a great extent
for the many gains made by the back
Held men through opposing lines
The second line of defense displayed
the ability of immediately diagnosing
the other team's offense and then get
ting to it and throwing the runner before
he had crossed the line of scrimmage.
Tfirera Close .Second.
Princeton, because of their well-earned
victory over the big Dartmouth elev
ens and of their desperate battle with
Yale, are given the second position.
The Tigers had a fast but rather light
squad of placers. The) displaced an of
fence early In the season that led many
critics to believe that the would repeat
the performance of last year and suc
ceed In defeating Harvard and Yale
This failure can be traceable to the fact
that most all of the Tiger town men
were lacking In experience
The rating of the other teams Is a
very difficult proposition nevertheless.
If Carlisle were placed first, with Yale,
Penn State, Annapolis Swarthmore,
Colgate, Georgetown Army, PennsI-
vanla and Cornell following. I believe
that it would be the proper rating
Speaking of Costello, Thorpe sajs at

Georgetown, a man that Is very little
heard of In this section of the country,
is given the preference over Miller, of
Penn State, and Bacon, of TVesIejan.

tine Washington Heralds Knox-
ille correspondent has the follow-
ing to say about the youngster:
Morley a Comer.
"Bill" Morley Joined the Knoxville Ap
palachian baseball team Jupe 39. 191Z.
and from that day until the last day
of the season he was the fielding sensa
tion ot the league Morley could pick
up the ball and get It away form him
quicker than any other shortstop In the
circuit Ills pegging was a revelaUon.
At taking throws at second and tagging
runners, he was considered by many the
best In the Appalachian League, which
Is saying a whole lot While not burn
ing up the bushes with his batting, he
was a dependable hitter and could be
relied on to drive In the necessary runs
in a pinch
Morley came to Knoxville from Michi
gan, where, it Is said, that he played
sensational college ball. Whether this
was true or otherwise, he made good
with a vengeance when he blew Into
Knoxville and Joined the Appalachian
Ills habits are exemplan. and at all
times demeaned himself as having come
from the best of famil) To know him
was to like him and to see htm In ac
tion on the ball diamond was to In
crease that liking
He Is five feet ten and one-half Inches
high, weighs ITS pounds, and Is twenty
two years old He Is an eleven-second
man, and has a throwing arm which
snaps the ball like a whip
In speaking of Morley as a ball player.
Manager Frank Moffett, of the local
Appalachian club than whom there Is
not a better baseball man In the South,
"He Is a good thinker, and is always
open for instruction. He Is unassuming,
friendlv, and has an excellent disposition
He takes tne ball on a dead run. and he
never halts before throwing He pegs
accurately and I believe he gets the ball
away from him quicker than anv short
stop I have seen In action In many
moons At taking throws at second he s
always on the Job He tags a. junner
quickl He never loses his nerve, al
though he makes the inevitable 'bobble"
which comes to all ball plavers He
covers more ground than the ordinary
plajer, and at pulling down apparent
Texas leaguers he's there 'While not a
strong hitter, he slashes out drives at
opportune times the hits which count In
baseball, after all I predict for Morley
a great baseball career I am glad he
goes to Washington, and I feel sure he
will make good It given half an oppor
When Manager Moffett savs this much
about a ball plaver one mav plank It
down th-it the plaver In question Is
"some plaver ' Yet if a canvass was
made of the fans throughout the Appa
lachian League there Is little doubt that
the above storj with reference to Morley
would be repeated
Morlev was a great favorite In Knox
ville It was perhaps his fast fielding
which won him the most friend' Often
has he been seen to go behind the third
baseman end take a grounder which
looked good for a trip to left field, then
turn an 1 throw the runner out It will
be admitted that such plavlng as this
borders on .the sensational However. It
has been admitted also that Morley was
a scnsa'Ional fielder
He was ona of the best bascrunners on
the Knoxville team While possessing
speed, he uses Judgment and applies
nerve, all of which carries him around
the circuit to many a score that would
otherwise never materialize
Some of the more skeptical may sa
that a fellow who scintillates so greatl)
In Class D companv could never shine In
the major leagues There are many play
ers In the major circuits who do shine
Where did they come from It la a cinch
they never broke Into major league com
pany with their first ball game It Is the
honest belief among the Knoxville fans
that Morley will make good In Washing
ton Calvo's Contract Beceived.
Manager Clark Griffith spent a busj
day jesterday at his desk answering sev
eral hundred letters and transacting other
business In connection with the ball club
One signed contract was received, that
of Jacinto Calvo, the joung Cuban, high
ly recommended bv friends of Griff s on

what he has to say about himself, but as
they did not teach Spanish where I went
to school, I can t translate the mlsMve
However, as he signed his contract, I
guess everything Is all right."
"Doc" White Comes Back,,
During an Impromptu fanning bee In
Griffs office Doc White the crack south
paw of the Chicago White Sox, drifted
In, Just as Griff waa telling the boys
what a great pitcher Charley Radbourne
"In those days," declared Griff, "a
pitcher could take a hop, step, and Jump
before delivering the ball. Just as long
as he kept Inside the box," which
prompted one of the scribes present to
remark: "That's what you did last sum
mer to get something on the ball, didn't
you Doc 7"
Everybody laughed, and Grift turned
to the lanky fllnger with a smile, and In
a kidding tone Inquired: "What sort of
a prayer did you offer before delivering
the ball last summer. Door
"The -same kind sou did the last jear
you tried to fool the batters' came
the reply from White.
Griff Immediately changed the sub
ject Visits Ball Park To-day.
Manager Griffith will Inspect the work
accomplished by Groundkceper Fltiger
ald during his absence, and plans to take
a trip to National Park this morning.
Tbe outfield at the local ball vard
has been leveled, and, according to re
ports, Fitzgerald has worked wonders
It Is believed that after the field has
