One of the unique features about the

there is not a. single member of the
team who la either a native Washlnjr

The Nationals are recruited from all
parts of a section limited by California

homes in Chicapro, there is not more
than one player living in any ono city.
The player who remains nearest to
National Park is Norman Elberfeld,
leadlnsr citizen of the risinjt and pros
perous town of Garrett Park, Md., while
the one -who has the longest Jump from

of Los Angeles, Cal.

lead in furnishing- Nationals, flvo of

Harry White on Stage.
It took Harry White, our fellow
townsman, two years to mako up his
mind to go on tho stage, but now that
he is in his full stride in vaudeville,
there seems to bo no question but
that ho is to make good.
The current issue of Variety, a
theatrical publication in Chicago, has
tho following to say:
"White is a dentist, a baseball
pitcher, and an artist in vaudeville. Ife
may not be anything much as a dentist:
there is no general dope on that. Chl
casoans declare that ho is a great
twirler. The Majestic audience gave
him a reception as a ball player Monday
night, and then applauded him and
called him back for repeated bows upon
his merits as a vaudeville artlBt. A
piano player on the stage accompanied
his four songs, and in one, vocally as
sisted. White haB a splendid per
sonality, a fine singing voice, and, with
manly bearing and an easy stage pres
ence, scored an unqualified hit He need
not confine his stage activities to Chi
cago; anywhere on the bill, he can

John I. Taylor suggests that instead
of ono official scorer in each city there

Queer how some very young ball play
ers take on flesh. Madden, a kid catch

fat last season that he could only play
a few innings. Tub Spencer was only a

The Boston Nationals, it is said, will

meeting of the Harvard football com
mittee before Tuesday," was all Gradu

today by way of Happy New Year to the

College Athlete Well
After Serious Illness
BOSTON, Jan. 1. Walter Norton, of
Wlnthrop, varsity baseball captain-at
Dartmouth last spring, was able to be
up and dresstd today for the first time
since before Thanksgiving, when he had
a relapse following apparent recovery
from an unusual cfle of blood poison
ing. A slight razor vut in Norton's face
became infected bv particles of brass
rttist in a Connecticut foundrj, whare
ho was learr.lne the business. A very
severe Illness resulted. The physicians
feel assured, however, that tho present
Improvement will be permanent.
Memorial Going Some.
A score of 40 to U against the Innkee
team of the Y. M C. A. Is some indi

A C team is traveling. In Murphy,
McHale. and Schombert, the team has a
trio of toosers of exceptional merit. 'i'ie

. PHILADELPHIA, Jan. L It will be
by no means on easy task that con
fronts Penn'a reorganized football com
mittee when It takes up the burden of
preparing for next season.
In the first pjace. they must choose a
coach, and this may be a very hard
task, for "Andy" Smith, conceded by
all to be the logical man for the place.
Is more than likely to decline re-election.
After his performance of the past
season In turning out a winning team
Bf. (Pennsylvania after things looked so
black at the start of he year, Smith
Is in great demand tor next year.
He has received several offers from
other colleges, one of them being for
double the money he has been receiving
at Pennsylvania. Smith says his heart
Is with Pennsylvania, and if the football
committee offers him anywhere near
the money that he can get elsewhere
he will stick; but he does not see his
way clear to make such a big financial
sacrifice as would be entailed in his
acceptance of the position for another
year at the same salary that has been
attached to the post for several years
Scarlett a Candidate.
Gaston and Scarlett are the only
other men in sight. Scarlett "has been
an end coach for two years, while
Gaston has been In charge of the
linemen for a like period, but both are
specialists rather than men of gen
eral football knowledgo and ability.
To face this crisis in football affairs
Pennsylvania has an inexperienced
committee. John H. Minds, who has
been a member of the committee for
Ave years past and chairman for three
years, has failed of re-election. Hobart
Porter, who will undoubtedly be chair
man in Minds' place, has not been ac
tively identified with tootDaii at Penn
sylvania since he was manager, in 1904.
The rest of the committee is also en
tirely green, with the exception of Dr.
Carnett. and ex-Captain Cozens, both
of whom have been members for one
year. The pxperience of Minds in this
crisis will surely be missed.
