THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 4. 1015.
Palace Cinches Flag in National Capital Duckpin League I up TO DATE SPORTS
LEAGUE FLAG NOW
AT PALACE'S FEET
Crucial Point in Competition
Passed This Week, and Y.
M. C. A. Fails to Deliver.
NATIONALS WIN TWO GAMES
Eight Games Now Separate
Leaders and Runners-Up in
By KIRK C. MILLER.
Ungrateful as is the task of pick
ing winners in any branch of sports
in advance of the competition itself,
one fact has made itself emphatic
(luring the past three nights on
Washington bowling alleys, viz: the
Palace team has cinched the pennant
in the National Capital League and
only a miracle can now grab victory
from its clutches. The facts which
form a base for this statement are
deduced from the two sets in which
the Palace and Y. M. C. A. have fig
ured and with an eight-game margin
between them and the association
rollers, Capt. Earl Lewis' band of
pinners can almost afford to rest
completely on their laurels through
out the remainder of the season and
still walk away with the bunting.
Since the rolling commenced last
Monday night, Palace has won three
straight games from the Climbers
and only last night Y. M. C. A.
struck a fatal snag in the Nationals,
when the latter won two out of
three games and stretched Palace's
margin of leadership from six to
eight games. These two sets have
been crucial ones in the National
CapitaPloop and although it may
seem premature to select the win
ners in any of the leagues which
still have ten weeks to roll, the prob
abilities do lean strong toward a
flag for Palace and a mere" glance at
the standing of the league will bear
out this statement.

ip, fiom the leading team to the cel

in Washington, and all eyes have been
turned toward the race which una been
centered largely around tho Palace and
V. M. C. A. teams. For weeks the teams
ran along at about even terms until
little by little. Palace edged away from
the Association team.
Farmers and Brlcklavcrs, the two
tralllne teams In the Putent Examiners'

I'lowmen getting the opening game by
a margin of twelve pins and then drop

seventeen pins, respectively. Pen ins.

Two sets weie rolled In the Depart
mental Duckpin League. Library hat
ing won a pair from War, and Marines
having pocketed a pair at the cxpenso
of Commerce. In the Libiary-War set,
Stockett featured with high game of
l. and high set of .TO, while Thomas
and Young divided individual honors
in the other match. With a record of
lit! for high game, Thomas attracted at
tention, and Youns's et of 327 branded
him as the best all-round bowler ot
the Marine-Commerce set.
Washington Gas Light Company
Duckpin League staged a match be
tween Commercial Department and In
stallation Department, the latter having
walked off the hoards with all three
panics. Krcisher, anchor man for tho
losers' had high Individual game with
figures of 121.
In the other Gas Light Company set,
est Station won the (list two games
and left the third one for Engineers.
Thq third game was won by the latter
by the narrow margin of a single pin,
the score having been 473 to 471. Cain
had a monstrous string of 13; In h's

closely by one of 120, rolled by Lange.

L TEJUB PLAY
CLEANEST OF GAMES
Georgetown and George Wash
ington Resume Athletic Re
lations Hilltoppers Win.
That basketball game between George
town and George Washington, In which
the Hilltoppers emerged with a 21-to-l
win, marking the resumption of ath
letic relations, is today voted the clean
est game of collegiate basketball play
ed here in many a day.
Certain it Is that the BOO odd specta
tors who watched the contest were en
thusiastic In their praise of the game
from a standpoint of' basketball. To be
sure there were a number of fouls com
mitted, no less than thirty-seven being
called by Referee Hughes, but the play
ers were so eager to check efforts at
goal tossing that they frequently made
Georgetown's triumph is laid to the
fact that the G. W. U team suffered
from stage fright more than anything
rruh it is thought that the
next engagement will bring out better
basketball from both teams.
Georgetown Invaded the Armory and
defeated the G. W. U. team on Its own
floor. Almon failed slgnallv In shooting
from the foul line, and lost many a
chance to win the game. Had either
team been successful in shooting after
fouls bad been called the sqorc would
hae been larger. But nine baskets
were shot during the game, Bhugrue
leading with three for Georgetown.

Aa usual, the Americun Lcasue
dining to chanpe the old limit rule from
ty-one or twenty-two, as had been discussed ever since the Tener tribe
recommended a twenty-one limit last December. Nowlet us bee what
the National League will do about the small limit suggested at the an
nual meeting. It's dollars to doughnuts that Ban Johnson's organization
has pointed out the road the N. L. will follow.
Reducing the limit to twenty-one men might prove slightly saving
in these parlous times, but the fans would quickly set up a yell in case
something went wrong. The magnates boast, that they have educated
the public to better things in baseball, cleaner surroundings, steel struc
tures, orderliness on the field, and higher prices to pay for these, too.
Yes, and the fans have been educated to expect large squads in uniform
Reduce teams to twenty-on.-. One substitute Intleldcr and one extra out
ilclder might be carried. But suppose four pltcln-is are out of tho game
with sore arms or injuries, what I the manager to do? Three catchers,
eight pitchers, six Intlclders, and the outiieldeis make just twenty-two nu-ri
In uniform. No account is made for youngsters being developed or for those
crafty cusses who direct the attack and deforce from the coaching lines
Indeed, three catchers are hardly enough. In 1U Jimmy McAleer had to
,e zc 1 yu""8ter, from the J01 !''"- to 1'clp out when all three catchers were
injured. Even with tv.enty.wo :nc tu line, one more than the National
League suggested, a manager would be "m dutch" were a couple of hialn
fleldcrs to be hurt at tho same time. The public has been taught to expect

,. .W!ln ,l co"lcs to t,ol"S thing as thev .should be done, you have to hand
it to the American league and to !Jan (.. who has a wav of getting his proj
ects across, no matter what tho opposition. B pr0J
George Washington and Georgetown L'nHersltlos are to conduct bic track
meets here this month. They both expeit to clear a little profit. But. thev
should not be downcast, oven If they lose. It is I ,he nature of the game
to lose money on Hack meets. Tho greatest indoor track meets are held in
New York and Boston. In New York the X. Y. A. C. and the I fish-American
A. C are pleased when the do not go into the hole too d"2in
Boston, where conversation is divided between integral calculu" and sprint
ing records, he Boston A. A usually clears Its expenses, but it Charge" so
much for admission that this is pos-lble only there. Four or five other
track meets are staged In Boston annually, but they are alwavs at a dead
lost. No, if truck meets In such centers of the sport cannot make
money, Oeorge Washington .mil Georgetown should not sUctl too many tear,
if they do not get rich Horn their meets here. ' "

TO MEET THIS WEEK
NEW YORK, Feb. H For the first
time In sever at seasons there will be
no Important change in the football '
rules when the committee meets at the
Hotel Hiltmore tomorrow anil .Saturday
of this week. There may be r-orrte mlpor
changes toward a better codification of
the rules, but there will be. no radical
amendments of airy kind. The game as
it was plajed last season was entirely
satisfactory and tire rulernakers see lit
tle chance for Improvement.
One of the principal abuses oiv the
grldliou last year was the frequent use
of strbstitutes to canv messaRes fiom

PLAY THREE GAMES
Best Quints in District Will Be
Seen in Action With Big
By BRYAN MORSE.
Three games are on tap for tomor
row in schoolboy circles which will
produce about the best basketball of
the season, according to rival
coaches and playem. At George
town the leaders of the Preparatory
Basketball League will hook up
when Georgetown Prep and Gon-
zaga get action- In the Bu&iness
gym St. Alban and Business will
play, while Western and the Army
and Navy Preps are due for a league
game at the Y. M. C. A.
! Gonzaga received a defeat at the
I hands of Western on Tuesday and is
due for a win from the Georgetown
rrep aggregation. The contest is
expected to bring out a dea.1 of good
basketball from the Gonzaga quint
which received a shaking up after
the game with the Red and White
The Preps have won their games by
small scores, taking the long end of an
11 to 6 contest with Alexandria yester
day. The Hilltop battle will see some
exceptional guarding by both teams.
Huslnesh and .St. Alban will nresent
their strongest line-ups as both are de- I
sirous or getting tire bulge. St. Alban
bellevts It still has a chance at the in
terscholastic title as great Improvement
was noted in tire last league game,
lltlsbiess in its last nerrormnneo u.m
! down before Western after a tough
fight. Ray ise waJJ out of the game,
arrd is still confined to his bed with. a
bad knee. Wise expects to be irr the
line-up Irf another week, but his ab
sence Is felt at the Rhode Island Avenue
The A. N. P.-Westerrr game should re-
i suit in a decisive win for Western, as
the I'reps nave lost their two best play
ers In Bolton and Kessler, who have
withdrawn from school. Coach Clancv
has been unfortunate all season, anil
has about reached the limit In getting
the bad breaks.
A meeting of coaches and officials is
expected to be called Monday night at
which all Interested in t-cholastlc bas
ketball are requested to attend. The
Y. M. C. A. will be asked to hold tho
meeting arrd notice will be sent out
Saturday to the various persons in
terested. It Is expected that a large following
will be on hard when the officials and
coaches will ask for interpretations of
the rules So far this i-oason games
have been more or less unsatisfactorily
