After four years of waiting, Virginia
Polytechnic Institute, from Blackaburg,
Va., will attempt to lower tho coldrs of
the Blue and Gray football team at the
Hilltop today In tho last big football
classic of the season. Adverse weather
conditions will not servo to dampen tho
spirits of tho Virginia cadets, who came
up 400 strong this morning to see Branch
Uocock'g eleven try conclusions with the
South Atlantic champions.
There Is a spirit of unrest on tho Hill
top. The team which has beaten down
Carolina A. and M , defeated Washing
ton and Lee, swamped North Carolina,
and literally walked off with Washing
ton College, Randolph-Maion and suf
fered but one defeat, at the hands of
the Carlisle Indians, for the Urst time
this season Is not sure of lctory.
It has become an open secret at the
Hilltop that practice has not been of the
best, and that many of the plajera aro
not In the best of plijulcul condition.
Added to this, a wet Meld Is thought to
be a disadvantage to the Blue and Gray
players. No predictions liatc been made
on the outcome of the gume, as Bocock
always has had a good team and
Georgetown well rememberx Its last ap
pearance tho game against Virginia,
which was won by the narrow margin
of a drop kick.
Even With Rivals.
The Techs rcallio that this Is their
one opportunity to cen up with their
old rivals, and while the past record of
tho Blacksburg eleven Is not ono that
could be called successful, they aro
pointing to the Princeton game and thtt
of last Saturday to show that the team
Is strong both on oCCcnsc and defense.
Bocock's eleven will be well coached
as aU of Bocock's teams In the past
have been. The team will be well
grounded In rudiments, has some ex
ceptionally good defensive men and Is
bound to show it spirit of willingness
at all times which Is sure to bo a

from Emmittsburg, Md , coached by
the famous Mike Thompson, l well
primed to meet Catholic University to
day In what hu been looked forward
to as one of the hardeat games of the
year at Brookland.
Neither Mt. fit. Mary'a nor Catholic
Unlveralty have had what might be
termed successful seasons. Both eleveni
for the greater number of games on
tho schedule have met teams outwolgh-
loth coaches have had their teams
pointed for today's game, and expect
to land a victory. Catholic Unlversltv
will have sevoraf players In the line-up

Star Hitters Are Unable to Maintain Pace Set for Consecu
tive Seasons Only Three Men in American League
Repeat Good Work of 191 1.
Have you ever atopped to think how
few players lead the batters In their
respective positions for two season.
Only three players who were topnotch
ers In batting In their places In the
American League In 1191 again led last
season. They were Tyrus Cobb, who
led the league In batting; Joo Jackson,
of the Naps, and Frank Baker, the Ath
letics' star thlrd-sacker. These wero the
only ones, who topped their position
The uncertainty of baseball Is shown
In these figure's. Not that tho players
who topped the batters In their posi
tions aro the best In tho league, as
there are several plavers In tho Ameri
can League, outside of these, who are
better than the leading batters. But thU
was the best batting team In the league
during the 191J campaign. One plalcr
who topped the swatters In his position
In 1911, was not even In tho league the
Shortstops Are Weak.
Among the nine positions there Is only
ono In which the leader has failed to
hit .300. That was tho shortstops' place.
Norman Klbcrfeld, who has since de
parted to the minors, was the leading
hitter at short in 1511 with ,m. whllo
Charley Wagner, the captain und star
of the Red Sox topped tho hitters In
that position last season where the bat
ters failed to blngle In tho select circle.
"Scoops" Borton, tho star first Backer
of tho Whlto Hoxwho Is picked by
many to be one of the leading first
Backers In the national pastlmo next
season, was the star hitter among the

NEW YORK. Nov. -Though "for

riprescntallve of the Philadelphia club
or any other club," Horace S. Fogel Is
grinning at the Impotence of President
I.Mich In seeking to banish him from
"Tho Jury was packed against me,"
said Fogel today, "but I shall sell, or
represent, as I please, tho Philadelphia
club In tho National League, as I feel
inclined to do and no one can disturb
me in the least. I have property rights

all. baseball politics, not baseball Itself.
I havo plenty of evidence controverting

knew beforehand Just what verdict

"This Is 11 case of spite, an attempt to

done-. I'M! tdelphla knows me well
enough to prevent that attempt from
succeeding. I have built baseball In
Philadelphia and the people thero know
It. Lynch can't undo what 1 havo done
fur tho national game."
Fogel Found Guilty .
Fogel was found guilty on the counts
of the Indictment against him. Two of
tho counts were dismissed as privileged
communications, but the famous Chi
cago letters wero considered proved.
As soon as he learned of the decision
of tho Jury. Fogel announced that It
was now up to the National League to
enforce Its findings Ho said that tho
leaguo cannot go through with Its sen
tence because he has rights to be pro
tected at all costs, and suggested tho
courts to uphold him. If It becomes
Tho resolution adopted by the league
reads as follows:
"Resolved, First That this league
hereby censures and condemns Horace
S. Fogel for the utterances and publi
cations so made by him while president
of tho Philadelphia baseball club of

Fogel, be, and he Is hereb, forever ex
cluded from further participation In tho

"Third That these resolutions bo
spread upon tho minutes of this league
und a copy thereof, duly certified, be

retary of the league be, and lie Is here
by. Instructed to give any one Interested
free access to the complete stenographic
minutes of this hearing, and that,
"Whereas the Jurisdiction of this
league to pass judgment upon tho
charges disposed of has been brought
In question; therefore,
Whet It Buy Do.
"Bo It further resolved, That this
league Is not a body of limited powers,
whoso uuthorlty Is restricted by tho
powers expressly enumerated In Its con
stitution. As a voluntary association
of the representatives of organised pro
fessional baseball, wo havo the samo
unlimited powers that-appertain to In
dividual men nnd associations of men.
Whenever tho representative of any club
falls short of thoso high principles which
