SANDLOT MOGULS WILL
ARRANGE NEW SCHEDULE
By BRYAN MORSE.
The District Baseball Association finds itself up against a difficult
situation in the present baseball championship series. With postpone
ments likely and one tie already on the books and another in prospect,
players and fans are united in asking when the series will end.
So complex is the situation with the various factors of dates, loca
tions of places to play games and possibilities of teams being unable to
participate that President Robert E. Doyle has set tomorrow night as the
time for meeting at Spalding's to unravel the situation.
In section 1 the Quantico Marines
and War Risk teams are tied for the
leadership. It will be necessary to
plar off a same before the winner
can be selected to enter the post
season series of three tames.
Navy Yard is leading- section 2, but
has a tie game to plar off with Clar
endon before knowing Just where it
will stand. The Naval Operations
players hare a game with Navy Yard
today which has been called off on
account of wet grounds.
The Qnantlco Marines are having
difficulty in making the running up
to the city, as the team has already
gone through a season comprising
nearly sixty games. Players on the
Marines are expecting to get u chance
at the Huns overseas, and ire anx
ious to quit baseball for a more seri
Another factor entering the situa
tion Is the Clarendon-Cardinal battle
scheduled for American League Park
on Sunday. Clarendon is not expect
ing to play the Virginia men on ac
count of having lost so many players.
The park was obtained by the Vir
ginia men for the game and Claren
don cannot well give up the attrac
tion. Games are listed for the park dur
ing the remainder of the week. Even
if all the contests are played the win
ners will not be determined, and it
will be necessary to run the games
well into next week. Interest seems
to be lagging somewhat and the Dis
trict Association wants to get the
teams lined up for the final series
before snow files.
Will Ask Manager.
President Doyle will ask the va
rious managers for a solution to-

QUEAL IN FRANCE
Rllly Queal, who coached the Yale
cross-country squads and the distance
runners of the track team for five or
six years, has arrived In France as
one of the Y. M. C. A. physical In
structors. uueal'a loss will be a hard blow to
cross-country running at Yale, for If
varsity football Is played at New
Haven the amount of time that John
ny Mack can give to cross-country
running Is problematical.
Queal had much to do with the de
velopment of the late John Overton,
and It was his careful training that
put Overton In condition for his series
of brilliant races with Jole Ray In the
winter of 1018-17.

ANNAPOLIS, Sept. 18. There is so thought of a curtailment of the
football season at the Naval Academy judging' by the present activity. As
a matter of fact, the season was outlined strictly according to the wishes
of the Navy Dcpsrtment, and there has been no suggestion of any change
in the arrangements. Six gomes have been scheduled, and it is believed
that all will be played. Two other dates are open, and they will be filled
Not one opponent of the Midshipmen has notified the local manage
ment of its purposes to cancel. On the contrary, Colby, which is the fur

has written assuring the Navy management that it will fill the date.
Coach Coble has been working for
a month with a fine squad of new
midshipmen numbering over a. hun
