Logan Cunningham, the former Cen
tral High School, baseball and football
star, last season's head coach at
Princeton, has decided to ault activity
on the gridiron in order to learn the
steel business in Pittsburgh. He has
turned down a handsome offer from
Northwestern University and will not
act as head coach at Princeton, flour
rrer. he may assist in routing the
Tigers for the Harvard and Yale cames
It will be a great surprise to his
many friends to learn ofCunningham's
decision, for he earned unstintel praises
in 1911 and 1912 for his work with the
Princeton elevert. He was considered
one of the best football coaches in the
game and his reputation traveled far
and wide. Indeed, it was because of
his work at Princeton that Northwest
ern tried to obtain him for three years,
beginning next fall.

the Sac and Fox Indian, and the world's
greatest all-round athlete, continues to
hold his place In the sporting limelight.
His disbarment from amateur sport by
the A. A. U. is an international subject
of conversation and discussion. From
'all parts of the world come dispatches
referring to his case. Even the South
has awakened to' the importance of the
affair. Also the section desires it known
that the inhabitants thereof are neither
slow nor asleep. The Charlotte, N. C,
Observer arises to remark that as far
back as July 18, 1912. that paper printed
a lengthy account of Thorpe's profes
sional baseball career in that section
of the country. For verification. It re
prints the following:
"Jim Thorpe, who, In the Olympic
games at Stockholm proved himself the
greatest all-round athlete In the world,
was once traded for Pete Boyle, now a
member of the Winston-Salem team in
the Carolina League. Boyle wa playing
with the Fayettevllle Highlanders, un
der Clancy, in 1310, the last year of the
Eastern Carolina League, and had
pitched fifteen games during the first
half of the season without losing a
single battle. Thorpe was playing for
Jim Connor, an old friend of Clancy's,
at Rocky Mount, and was not doing
much on the slab, but was keeping up
his stick work, which Is a way he has,
when a four-cornered deal, which start
led the tight little circuit, was an
nounced. Clancy had traded Peartree, a
light-hitting outfielder, for Schumann, a
veteran, who had led the league in bat
ting the year before, while Connor waj
to give him Thorpe for Boyle. The big,
silent Indian proved the very nwui

the game was oyer It showed that thr

The Catholic players were perfection

opponents gave a mlseinble exhibition
of the rudiments of the game and never
showed the Kcnfhlance of team work.
Horan and McDonell, the star guards
of the C. lT. five had an easy task in

all of the caging and did so as they
pleased. The Maryland guards seemed
nelnless to Stan their fast work. Thn

good form against a formidable, team
ast night when ML St. Joseph's, three
weeks ago a decisive winner over the
Aggies, were humbled, 41 to 23. Tho
visitors' play was by no means bad,
but the victory of the Farmer five was
the result of a reversal of form which
made the achievement the more note
worthy. Therewere few flaws In the work of

The Aggies' defense, though brilliant,
was not eclipsed by the performances
