Candidates for th Georgetown Uni

Blae and Gray track athletic-, and
one of the largest iquaili In the history
of the iport on the Hilltop la expected
to be on hand for the flnt work-out.
The team promises to be the best
balanced squad that waa ever developed
(n this section of the country, for men
of known skill are available for all
vents from tho sprints to the distance
runs; from the shot-put to the pole
vault. In not a single event will the
Blue and dray school lack a capable
performer. In every number on the
program, the Institution on the heights
win be represented by men who will
not only be prominent contenders for
first place; but also likely to break a
record In any meet which they enter.
In the sprints the West Enders.wlll
have such speed merchants as Captain
Bob Bller. Harry Coitcllo, McOrath,
Crawford, McNulty, Brewer, and Gol
den. Eller, Costello and Brewer are
II letter men of last year's team, who
won points In the dash events during
the winter season. McQrath and Uol
dan are both fast men who ran on last
year's team and, whllo they failed to
score any points, gave every Indica
tion of Improving greatly with a year's
experience In collegiate circles.
Many Good Hurdlers.
In the hurdle the Blue and Uray team
Is certain to have a good trio of timber
toppers. Bob Eller, Paul Blackstone
and Peter McNulty form a trio which
Sromlses to finish one, two, and three.

broke three hurdle records last semen
In Baltimore, Richmond, and this city,
as well as forcing his brother. Jack, to

Bob Eller. Dave White, Ed Mulancy,
and Jim Dunn will all be ellglblo for the
weight events and should score many
extra points for Georgetown because of
their ability to hurl the missile for good

Harry Costello, the winner of last
year's pole vaulting event at tho George

the Christmas holidays It is not likely
that the candidates will do anything
further than practice starts and go
through exercises to Improve their wind

rest up and put tho finishing touches
on the plays which they will use against
Pennsylvania on Thanksgiving Day.
Dr. AI Sharpc, Cornell's coach. Is
somewhat reticent ubout the coming

Red and White has played such Incon

wcllr.lgh Impossible to net any sort ot

If Cornell Is at Its best, and there
have been times when Cornell has play
ed grand football this ear. Dr. Sharpc
thinks there will be a Cornell win. Ho
considers the Cornell line, man for man,
just as good as x'enn's forwurdB. Hhurpo
concedes nothing to Jourdct and Young,
the Penn ends, but says that Mercer Is
better than anything Cornell can Bhow
In the backlleld.
It Is not known whether "Flnncr"

Battle Between Service Elev
ens Sure To Be Vicious
By LOUIS A. DOUGHER.
When the Army mule opposes the
Navy goat then. Indeed, Is there a bat
tle worth seeing. This struggle will be
seen this year at Philadelphia and Sat
urday Is tho day when the two service,
elevens mingle In the bitter fray, to tho
great enjoyment of commodores and
colonels gathered around tho Held,
It Is unfortunate, perhaps, that tho
standard of football shown this year is
not likely to bo high. Neither teum is
up to former teams. Uut, when )ou
come to think of It, though many of
their games havo been spectacular and
thrilling to an cxtieme, the standard of
football shon has frequently been low,
looked ut from the expert's viewpoint
How ever, when the Army mulo faces
tho Navy goat it Is ulwas a battle, for
blood, misnamed for tho honor ot the
sendee. Vicious football In all Its vlcl
ousness has been frequently seen In
thise games. In tho old days of flying
tackles these two teams havo shown
tho most daring dives through tho air
at the speeding runner. No, perhaps,
after ull. It wasn't vicious exactly just
hard, thut's all. Uut It certainly was
hard. If vou waul to call It that.
This ycur the, Aimy started off with
a rush and then stopped suddenly.
Stevens fell bcfoio the soldiers. 27
to 0, und Rutgers wns beaten, 19 to 0.
It was confidently believed that Yulo
would suffer Its thlid successive da
feat ut tho hands of tho Cadets. The
Armv pluyed Its usual hard game,
but Yale won, 6 to .
Colgate Dt .eated.
Renewed courage appeared when the
snuppy little Colgato cloven, conqueror
of Cornell, was trimmed handily, 18
to 7, That Joy wus ex'rleneed too
soon, though, and Carlisle romped
uwuy with tho Soldiers In ono of the
roughest games of the season. Jim
Thorpe was at his best that after
noon and ran through the Army play
ers whenever It happened to oome
to his mind. It wus 27 to i whn the
whlstlo sounded In favor ot tho In
dians. Tho little Tufts team from Medford.
Mass., a suburb of Iloston, came along
then and gave the soldlcrx a mighty
combat for one half, outplaying them
In every particular of pluv. True, tho
Soldlcra won, In to ti, but Tufts hud
thrown a scare Into them.
Saturday, however, tlin soldler came
to themselves and had llttlt trouble,
winning from the strong Syracuse
eleven, 23 to 7. Tho Army backs were
Irresistible, pounding their way through
tho 8ult City hum with ease. Now
tlio conches have, regained their confi
dence beforu the Navy clash .Saturduy.
Navy's Season Poor.
The Navy's i canon bus been poor
from every ungle. At tho very be
ginning Johns Hopkins held them to
a 7 to 3 victory and then Ihlgh
and Swarthmore ilefeutrd the Sailors,
11 to 0 nnd 21 to respectively. Pitts
burgh's weakened team was humbled
and so was Western Ilcscrve, but
Hucknell had llttlo difficulty swing
ing enough forward passes over the
Sailors' lino to a victory.
The Middies looked rpretty good
when they ran ui against North Car
olina A. and M winning by to to 0
and nover being In trouble.
New York University, after a moro
or less mediocre season, found tho
Middles all ready for them Saturday at
Annapolis. Coach Wheatnn's lads had
no trouble rolling up a 39 to 0 score
against them. Of cours.6, this hus tilled
tho sailors with hopo for an oven break
with the Armv at Franklin Field.

Army's Long String.
Four games had been played, the
Navy winning three of them, when
they severed athletic relutlons after the
"Ji clash. When they again resumed
their yearly football struggles tho Army
was far stronger than eer. Indeed,
from llinij the Sailors did not win a gamn
from the Soldiers until Yale's forwanl
pass to Jonas Ingram shot tho ball ocr
tho line for a Navy touchdown in liW.
Tho Army elevens In the late nineties
were powerful. Smith. Cusad, Nelly,
Iloyert, Hunker, nnd Fnrnswnrth were

Tta Now had good men in Lund, now

nonman, Asiernaus, uerrien, ana the

GAME WITH ARMY
IS GENERAL TOPIC
Policy of Trying Out Many
Backfield Men Yields
ANNAPOLIS, Md Nov. 25. Now that
the decisive battles of the teams that
stand at the top of the football heup
have passed Into history no remaining
contest compares In interest with the
struggle between the Naval and Military
Acudemy teams which will take Satur
day on Franklin Field. Philadelphia. At
Annapolis the game Is the one topic of
general Interest, und the whole squad
will start in this afternoon to put on
the finishing touches for the big game.
After a distinctly disastrous early sea
son the big scores piled up against the
North Carolina Aggies and New York
University have given encouragement to
every member of the squad and every
friend of the teum, and the Navy will
Journey to Philadelphia looking for vic
tory. One procedure of the coaches which
was not generally understood early In
the season Is beginning to yield fruit,
tho pol'cy of trying out a large number
of men In tho buckfleld having beaten
Into a shape n remarkable number of
reliable men behind the line.
As n icfcult of this policy tho Navy
now bus two or three men for every
hackfleld position with l'ttlo to choose
among them In many cases, und even
now It Is doubtful us to which will be
gin the Army game.
To take the place of Captain Ttodes at
quarterback, there is N'cholls, Miles, or
Mltcell. any of whom could also be used
at halfback. Of the plunging typo of
backs, there are Mclleavey, Falling and
Harrison, nnd Ingram could also bo
brought from end. Kncli of these weighs
bet wem 175 und 183 pounds. Of tho fast
end running men. there nre Leonard,
Alexander, Cook, and Collins, besides
Nlcholls, while Hates Is a stocky fellow
who nils In anywhere with credit. The
most likely arrangement at the begin
ning of the game Is:
Quarterback, nodes (captain): left
hulfback, Leonard: right halfback, Mc
lleavey; fullback, Harrison.

Hank O'Day's problem.
Judging from the official figures,
Hank O'Day's problem In Cincinnati
last season was tho twirling staff. He
had no less than two dozen pitchers
on his payroll during the campaign,
and. Inasmuch as he had little success
with them. It might be concluded that
he had too many. The Giants won
the pennant with twelve.
