AN U(V WHO etr
ALL BUT THREE OF
Eight Members of Navy's
Team Are in Junior
ANNAPOLIS, Md.. Dec. 4.-Not only
is it a fact that the Naval Academy
team on Saturday drew eight players
from ono class, tho second, but there !s
llmie doubt that the whole team could
have been taken from that class, and
would have been little below the stand
ard of the team that was selected by
the coaches to represent the academy.
The only members of other classes who
were In the line-up were: Hall, left
tackle, a first classman; and Perry, cen
ter; and Harrison, fullback, who were
A team entirely .from the accond class
would, of course, contain the eight play
era who started tho game In their regu
lar positions.. These are; Ingram, left
end; Howe, left guard; Brown, right
guard; Ralston, right tackle; OlIehrTst,
right end, Rpdes, quarterback: Leonard,
left halfback; McReavey, right half
back. The three vacant places could
readily bo filled. For left tackle, there
would be Redman. Vaughan or Latl
more, all seasoned veterans. Walker
couia uxe rerry-s piace at center, ns,
he played the position nearly all the j
flURRnn md wii 1unt nn,l ntt n thtt '
final choice. The backfleld could be
made up successfully by placing Rodes
at tuiiDacK, a position wnere ne nas
done most of his playing, and filling
quarterback with Nlcholls, a slashing
little player. Several other arrange
ments might be suggested, but this
would probably be the strongest, and
has the advantage of having all tho men
nlav In rjosltlons to which they are used.
As Hall. left tackle. Is the only Player
lost by graduation, the Navy will have
practically the same team next season,
unless some of the veterans are dis
placed by younger men who make a bet
ter showing. The system at the acad
emy Is to play no favorites, and none
of tho old men will have their places
Ellis Ward Seems to
Be Doomed at Pennsy
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 4.-Coach Ellis
Ward, of the University of Pennsyl
vania rowing squad, seems to be
doomctl. following a meeting of the col
lego boat club held last night.
At the meeting last night J. W. Town
send, Jr.. who Is a strong anti-Ward
man, polled the largest vote for mem
bership of the rowing committee, und
Immediately after this announcement
was made Thomas Reach, chairman of
the University of Pennsylvania rowing
committee and a warm Ward supporter,
resigned the chairmanship. Reach de
clared that ho would not contlnuo to be
chairman so long us there was so much
dissatisfaction expressed by the student
body and the alumni over Pcnn's Inabil
ity to win race! on tho water.
Whether rowing coaching methods at
Penn are to change will be decided at
the election of the membership of the
athletic association committee. Every
candidate ror tnis committee win De
asked to declaro himself squarely u pun
the coaching method, and upon this
Issue the election will be decided.

HOUSTON, Tax.. Dec. 4.-Hany
Howell, former major leaguo pitcher,

has made a demand for advance money
before he will make the trip to the Lone
Star State to officiate next season. It
s believed to bo tho only time that any
umpire ever has done this. Ills services
were so satlsfactorv last year, how
ever, that It Is expected his demand will
be complied with.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass., Dec. 4.
George Allen Davis, of the New York
Highlanders, In a recent strength test
made by Physical Director Sccley, of
Williams College, established the re

record of H. R. Hardwlck, the strong

Davis' figures aro also considerably
higher than those of V. D. Huntington,

WHS WANT Ttf (t Sfclt0 Step Of!
TO VISIT ENGLAND
Plan to Play Over St. An
drew's Course for
NEW YORK. Dec. 4. It Is quite likely
that half a dozen or more American
amateur golfers will visit England next
spring to play in the British amateur
championship over the historic St. An
drew's Course. The plan Is only tenta
tive, but there Is a strong probability
that some of tho best-known players
within a short distance of New York
will make up a party for the purpose
of taking a golfing trip abroad.

That would bo a real story for the

Virginia finds that, In order to meet
Princeton at football, she must no to

Tigers from playing away from home,
except with Yale and Harvard. On that
account Dartmouth Is obllRed to co to
Princeton Instead of meeting tho Tlsers

It Is a great honor for Harry Co

Thorpe choose the Hilltop star lor quar

draw-pack, however, comes with the un
official selection. Walter Camp, blind
as ho may be, makes the official choice,
and he can't sec players who don't fttco
