very little Cornell .money In sight, Penn
la a J-to-1 favorite over Cornell today In
the financial district. The enthusiastic
undergraduates are offering aa high aa
10 to 3 on the Red and Blue to win from
the "big Red team."
Indications point to a soft, slimy grid.
Iron today when the two varsity eleven
. take the Held. This Is expected to prove
of material aid to Cornell, and many
experts believe that Al Sharpe'a eleven
has a chance to surprise the In-and-out
Quakers. Cornell has had a varied se
aon. but In the last few days has begun
to come with a rush. This may prove
the undoing of the Red and Blue.
Penn'a eleven Is composed of fighters,
every man on the team having battled
his way to his place through much op
position. Against Michigan and Car
lisle the Quakers proved they had the
atuff that makes a winner. On this ac
count all Philadelphia expects a Quaker
victory.
Cornell's squad arrived this morning
from Atlantic City, where the finishing
touches have been put on. Every player
la In good condition, and the visitors
feel that they have a chance, despite
the betting odds agalnat them.
Penn'a final practice was smooth,
every play going off with th'e celerity of
clockwork.

ADVANTAGE OF DAY
TO BOOST HARKS
Standings and Averages of
Individual Tenpin
Championship.
By KIRK C. MILLER.
Today is truly a day of thanksgiving
for Washington's army of pin knights.
From Mt,, Pleasant to the river front.
and from Georgetown to the Navy Yard
the local alleys are crowded to their
capacity with slaves of the mlnerallte.
On many alleys special prizes have been
hung up for high games, sets, spares
and strikes, and the bowlera are rolling
away with a vengeance In an effort to
pocket some of tne cash prizes ihat
will be given betneen now and midnight.
They are most thankful for the holiday,
and every mother's von of them is taking
advantuge of the opportunity to sweu
hla average so that his name might ap
pear In tne Sunday pink pages, or in
some honor roll.
At the Palace Alleys special prizes
are being given for nigh scores rolled
each hour between noon and 10 p. m.,
and 83 will be given to tho Individual
who rolls the highest of three games
during the glorious Thanksgiving Day.
HarUlc. C. Miller, and Hodrick take
the alleva tonight In the Individual
tenpin championship tournament which
has been In session for nearly three
weeks and which runs for fourteen
weeks. The results of the matches will
have little direct bearing on the stand
ings, as all contestants are nearer the
cellar championship than the attic po
sition. C. Miller is expected to boost
his average In the number of total
pins, and In such an event he will
nave an enviable hold on first place
In that column. Already ho has killed
2,948 maples in the fifteen games he1
has taken part In.
Mllovlch, Fields, and Bchaffer went to
an exciting three-round bout last night.
Mllovltch got away with the large end
of the. scores In the last match, which
put him In the .C00 class; but dropped
the Initial battle to Fields, who now
holds second place. Fields also won
from Bchaffer In the second Bet.

second class teams.
Disastrous Season.
It has been a disastrous season for
Cornell. Al Sharpe, the old Yale star
kicking and running halfback, assumed
charge of the football situation there
thta year and found himself facing in
surmountable difficulties. Lacking foot
bull prestige, Cornell finds It hardest
of all to give the playera tho proper
spirit. Sharpe has battled manfully in
the face of heavy odds and haa hopes
that next season may see better things.

Penn as Bad.

when such teams aa Swarthmore.
Brown, Lafayette, and Penn State can

Carlisle Is Defeated.
No one Imagined, even after the vie

the Red and Blue, Therefore, It was

Indians were defeated, 34 to 26. Try

NAVY EXPECTS TO
DEFEAT THE ARMY
Annapolis Squad Is Given Royal Send-off by Midshipmen
on Leave for Philadelphia
Is Suffering From
ANNAPOLIS, Md, Nov. !. The
Naval Academy football squad left
for Philadelphia this morning with
the echoes of a send-oft in the ears
which should still be sounding when
they line up against the Army eleven
on Franklin Field Saturday. All the
midshipmen turned out, and aug
mented by hundreds of the Navy
team's friends, escorted the party to
the Academy gate, where cheer after
rheer waa sent after the departing
warriors. Nothing has been left un
done by the coaches or the midship
men body to Impress the players with
the idea that It will take real fight
ing to win on Saturday and the team
Is full of the Idea that It must re
trieve a rather disastrous local sea
son by a Ictory in the final game.
The sentiment of the majority here
Is that chances favor the Navy team
to win Saturday. Reliance Is placed
upon the trpmcndoua strength of thu
line together with their experience
and determination to make good and
In the -abundance of trained backs
which will enable the coaches to sup
ply fitoeh men whenever needed to keep
up the fastest kind of a pace. Then,
too. It Is believed that tho Army team
may suffer from overconfidence, aa
It has been so persistently published
Abroad thla season that tho Navy
team Is weak. This, together with
the undoubted Improvement in the
Navy team In the last ten days, haa
caused a wave of confidence to sweep
over Annapolis.
Unless some one gets hurt during the
two practices that will take place on
Franklin Field the llne-un will be:
Overesch, left end; Hall, left tackle:
nowc, leu guard; l-erry, center; Brown, i
right guard; Ralston, right tackle; Gil-1
vuriai, iigiii cnu; uipiain itoaea, quar
ter back: Leonard, left half, back; Mc1
Rcavy right halfback; Harrison, full
back.
Changes In thla team will take place
during the game, and It la not at all
unlikely that Nlcholls will take Captain
Bodes' place early In the contest. Many
believe him to be a better player. Much
Interest Is being felt In the showing
good natured Jimmy Halt will make
against Devore, the Army captain and
star lineman. Hall Is the only repre
sentative of the graduating class on
the team, and wilt make a determined
effort to neutralise the work of the
Army crack.
