BOSTON", Feb. J. A meeting between
Dartmouth and Pennsylvania on Sat

result as an aftermath of Dartmouth's
schedule of 1913. The Red and Blue is
reported as "on the outs" with Cornell
and the appearance of Dartmouth at
Philadelphia on turkey day should
prove a good drawing card and also a
sterling contest should result. The
Hanover management should be able to
make up in great part the money deficit
that will probably exist in Its schedule,
minus Harvard. Talk Is rife too that
Brown and Dartmouth may renew their
football relationship broken off in 1903.

Littlest Manager Turns Loose
Several Queer Tales of the
Diamond.
ST. LOL'IS, Feb. I. Recently v.hca
asked -the queerest plays he ever saw
on a ball field. Manager Miller Hug
gins of the Cardinals replied:
"Two Instances of quick thinking on
the spur of the moment ocycur to me as
being well above the average. Certain
ly each played an Important part In
the game.
"Last year the St. Louis club. In a
game with Chicago, had a mm on sec

one out A St. Louis batsman hit a fly
ball out to Jimmy Sheclcard.
"Sheckard got all ready to throw the
ball to the home plate, anticipating that
the runner on third would to' to score.
But just as Sheckard drew back nfs
arm to throw he saw that the man on
third did not leave the bag, but that
the man on second, expecting that the
player ahead of him would try to score,
had started from second to third.
"Quick as a flash, Sheckard. with the
same motion, wheeled and let the ball
drive to second, where he got his man
J"Thesecon'd Play was one In which I !
was mixed up myself. Two of our St.
Louis players were on first and second
bases, with no one out. The man "n
second base was a 3low runner. 1 was
at bat and It was my. intention to cac
riUce along the third-base line,
"We were iIajlng againbt Pittsburgn,
'and as soon as the plichcr pitched the
ball he startea lor me iniru-uasc imc.
and. I knew he hoped to get the ball
and make a play for a forcout at

just time to shift the position of my

I lane to the pitcher's box. As the pitcher
had left Iih position the tium went ior
a single, and. nlth the bases niiMi, wi
Kubsequcntly scored enough runs to
win the game.
"I will tell you thre- funny Incidents
that have occurred during my career.
"Once while playing In Cincinnati
aaglnst New York, with John Stowc as
umpire. It having rained during all the
game, "Dummy" Taylor put on a large
pair of rubber boots and went out on
the line to coach. Being a deaf mute
and not paying any attention to John
.stone. It caused a lot of excitement and
was very funny.
"Another time when Cincinnati was
playing In Plttsbuig Joe Kelley. who
"as mnimgcr of the Reds, was sore be
cause the umpire refused to fall the
game when It was raining pitchforks
nnd went Into'tho box and started to
pitch with a cigarette In his month.
"In a game played when In St. Pul.
a visiting batsman hit a ball Into left
field. Our loft fielder while running for
it collided with a calf that had broken
Uh tether and had strayed on the field.
You can Imagine the effect this had on
the ball gamp."

It Is a pity that Eddie Whiting, the

with aomc of the best teams In the

Leach Cross, tactics In New York
have started the officials In a campaign
against "stalling." I have seen many
11 bout absolutely ruined by this "stall
ing" and, when a man pays $10 to see a
bout and sees nothing but "stalling," he
may never return. It Is wiser for the
boxers to quit It before they kill their
own game. But then who ever claimed
a boxer had so much brains?
Onlv too true.
That Virginia is invincible In Its own
gym was proved against last night when
the Ililltoppers went down to defeat to

principal druwback to basketball, the

only solution and that will never be
popular.
