National League Faces Dangerous Crisis As Result of Lynch' s Determination to Expel Fqgel
FACES CRISIS IN
Fogel Matter May Take Or

FROM OLD CIRCUIT

Tomorrow things should be lively In
New York when the Nat'onal League
mas-nates gather to Investigate the
charges preferred by Freildent Tom
Lynch that Horace 8. -Jfofel aaaalled
the honeaty of the league. Lynch de
mands the expulsion of Fogel from or
ganized baseball and Bays that, falling
to prove his charges against the Phllly
rnogul, he himself will resign from the
councils of the league.
If the evidence warrants the expulsion
of Fogel and the magnates. In their
usual weak fashion, decline to expel
Fogel from the' league, Lynch will give
the evidence to the newspapers, and
let the public judge for Itself., And right
liere may come the fun, for not one of
those magnates Is anxious to have the
treat general publlo let into the meet
ing so thoroughly.
The latest rumor says that Ban John
son, boss of the American League, Is
keeping closo to affairs, and will be
heard from In case the National League
magnates refuse to take action on the
natter. Baseball cannot well afford to
let Fogels alleged charges pass un

pushing them so hard. Something must

no room In big league baseball for him.
What Lynch Charges.
President Lynch charges that Fogel,
owner and president of the Phillies. In
a signed statement, declared that the
president of the league Instructed his
umpires, especially Umpire Brennan, to
favor the New York Giants In tho race
for the pennant lastseason, that the
Nations! League campaign was crooked,
and that It was "fixed" fr the alants

informed baseball writer, says that

Furthermore, he says that thin original

Lynch for use tomorrow together with a

claims to have received It from Mur
Fogel Is also said to have made sev
eral caustic remarks concerning the
honesty of the National league uiiplics
while occupying a scat In the press tox
at his own park last summer. Lynch
claims to have sworn affidavits rrom
those men who were there at the time.
Fogel has asked for mora time before
this Investigation, pleading that ho Is
trying to sell his Interests In the club,
but Lynch declined to give him mere
Lynch for Re-election.
The Fogel affair makes Lynch a can
didate for re-electing, If nothing else
had forced It The National League
cannot well afford to have him quit un

the duties for another year. This whele
matter threatens to involcve the league

Unless the league acts against Fogel,

Ban Johnson's bullheadedness In
wanting the annual meeting of tho
American League, always his pet hobby,
may result ? more trouble for the
MeAleer-McRoy Interests in Boston.
While the wrangle of the National
League will be absent, therefore an ob

meeting will only emphasize the West

Tale baa lost a Camp Harvard has found a Haughton. There could
only be one answer. The Goat that used to be Is now King of tbe Beasts,
where both tbe Bulldog and the Tiger acknowledge his supremacy. Har
vard, through tbe coaching and the system Installed by Haugbton, has
come Into her own at last, and has crossed as bleak and as barren a moor
land of defeat as an eleven ever faced. Harvard has been coming for some
time, but It was only on Saturday that she at last came out of tbe Wilder
ness into the Promised Land.
One of the best coached elevens that ever followed a football came to
New Haven and found there one of the worst coached elevens that ever
wore, the Blue. It Is not to Harvard's discredit that Yalo's material went to
seed,' for the Crimson machine of 1912 must be ranked with the great
machines of the gme.

and when the test came Yale was found wanting facing her final battle
without knowing many of the simple rudiments of elementary play, and
without the least semblance of machine work.
The Harvard-Yale Angle.
Yale must now go through what Harvard wrought with for ten years
and more unless the Blue can Install its old system or find another one of
The crisis of both elevens arrived In 1908. At that date It had been
six years since Harvard had scored on Yale with tho Blue steadily vic
torious. In 1908 Harvard found her Haughton and Camp's prestige at
Yale began to wane.
It is not in tho last five years that Yale has done so badly, save that all
things are comparative. And In these last five years Yale, with her chang
ing system or her vanishing system, has won but once from Harvard and
in all that time has failed to fight her way across the Crimson line.
Five years for Yale without a touchdown against Harvard and three
straight years now without a score! If that Isn't an answer there can be
none from the record.
Both Harvard and Yale In these last five years have changed Harvard
for the better and Yale for the worse.
When Camp's prestige was broken, the magnetism and leadership of
Tom Shevlln held tbe Blue up for a brief while against the Inevitable. But
even Shevlln couldn't stove off this inevitable with tbe old system vanish

As a result when Shevlln, Sanford, and others reached New Haven
.hi. .ii h..v fmind material for an old-time Yalo team but material that
had gone too far to seed and. that in elementary football was too far back
ward to be whipped into shape. .,... i .....
The nower was there for'a team that could have given even the bril
liant Crimson legion a battle to the last line, but sheer power, raw and
unawakened, Is no match for power that Is finished, polished off, alert, and
forever on the job.
In these last few years tbe club, or social system, at Yale, bas also
changed for the worse in so far as athletic spirit is concerned, and there
has been no Iron-handed Haughton to hold It back and make merit alone
the true test for advancement.
So Yale, without her Camp, met Harvard with her Haughton, and
material that sbould have been equal stood 20 to 0 apart at tbe show-down.
It took Harvard eleven years to cross Yale's goal line but she crossed
it at last, coming steadily year by. year; anrnow Ave years have passed
since Yale crossed Harvard, and In this time, Yale, Instead of coming on,
has been drifting backward without a victory and two defeats to show
from Harvard and Princeton in the last two campaigns.
Against Princeton, Yale has scored but one touchdown in three years.
Against Harvard she hasn't scored at all. And only a marvelous individual
achievement against Princeton saved her from two successive defeats by
the Orange and Black.
Yale, as we remarked before, has not only been going back. Harvard
has been coming forward and Princeton has started. The Harvard eleven
of 1912 was not only a masterpiece, but the system of battle and tbe ma
terial Is there for elevens just as strong In seasons to come.
aii nt which nuta it strictly ud to Yale to meet the most tangled situa
tion the Blue ever faced. Yale must either go back to her old system, or if
this Is Impossible, seek another where one man rules as Haughton rules
at Cambridge, and where that one man can rule from one season Into
another. A man, for example, like Tom 8hevlln, put In charge at the
year's beginning, would start Yale back, within a year, and glvo J. Harvard
and the Tiger something to mina aooui wuswier mo i""
But whatever happens at Yale or Princeton, you might as well keep a

and foolishness which prevailed up to 1908.
