PITTS. CHALLENGES CORNELL. Smoketown Eleven Sends Formal Re quest to Ithaca for' Game- Pittsburg, Dec. L The , University of Pittsburg athletic authorities for mally challenged Cornell yesterday to a post-season football game to be played within -two weeks on neutral grounds to settle the question of su premacy, the proceeds to be turned over to charity. The following letter was sent to Graduate Manager Kent at Ithaca: "In defense to a sentiment among the football loving public, which would like to see the football su premacy of the East decided, the University of Pittsburg is willing to play Cornell within two weeks on neu tral grounds, say in Philadelphia or New York, each team to pay its own expenses, and the entire proceeds to be donated to some deserving charity Please advise. "JOSEPH H. THOMPSON, "Chairman Football Committee." That commercial motives may not be alleged to the University of Pitts burg the local authorities have the proceeds of the game must be donated to some worthy charity and that both elevens must pay their own expenses. : jww;.-BWirM! u .i i i w, . , . . i , , , ; i wmvx : '' f PORT LIGHT Grcurfanc Rjcq BLACK ELECTED YALE CAPTAIN Star Guard Beats Out Sheldon lor Honor Alter Close Contest Feeling that the football season was ' game?

Mike Gib bons, the sensational middleweight of this city, has mapped out a stren uous schedule for himself. He in tends to . take on all the so-called champions in the near future and dispdse of them in masterly syle to establish a clear claim to the middle weight crown. As a starter Gibbons will take on Young Ahearn, the European middleweight champion, in a ten round battle to be held here at the Capital A. C, Dec. 10. When these two clever chaps meet, there fore, It will be some battle. Accord ing to Ahearn's manager, the crafty Daniel McKetridk, the European bat tler, who has come to be known as England's best boy, will beat Gibbons and beat him decisively. It is diffi cult for northwestern fight followers to imagine such a state of affairs. While they do not believe that there is a man in the world today who can beat Mike Gibbons decisively, still, if there is such a man, they want to "see him. Like the Missourians, they want to be "shown." When Mc Ketrick signed articles for this fight he asked President Dow of the Cap ital City Athletic club if he is a friend of Mike Gibbons. Upon receiving an affirmative reply McKetrick said: "What are you trying to do? Sityn away the best friend you've got? This fellow Ahearn will whip Gibbons :n sure as you are alive." So confident is this McKetrick person of victory over Gibbons Dec. 10, that he has shouted from the housetops in New York the fact that Ahearn will not only whip Gibbons in his own town, but that the European battler will knock Gibbons out. Should Mike Gibbons win this battle this man Mc Ketrick will have to hunt a hole and hibernate the rest of the winter, for he will have absolutely no alibi when he returns to New York. The fact that the Minnesota boxing commission may give its consent to allow a de cision in this important fight is caus ing lots of talk throughout the north west. Should such ah action - bo taken by the commissioners, it will mean that the much muddled middle weight championship question will be definitely cleared. The commission will not give out its decision on the matter until Dec. 7. Upper illus tration shows Mike Gibbons second from left in group, with his brother The Line-up.

Lieut Charles Daly, U. S. A., left here yesterday for San Francisco, from which port he will sail on a government transport on December 5 for Honolulu. Lieut. Daly is attached to the First. Regi ment of Field Artillery and will take station with his battery at Schofleld Barracks, Honolulu. He is through with football for three years. This means that Diy will not coach the Army eleven again for some time. Neither will he coach Harvard, as has been rumored recently, for his tour of duty in the Sandwich Islands is due to last for two years at least: ' Lieut Daly was captain of the Har vard eleven in 1900. He entered the Military Academy , in 1901, being graduated in 1905. During his first two years as a cadet he played quar terback on the Army team. Both these years the Army defeated the Navy. In his plebe year, 1901, Daly won from the Navy, as did Oliphant last week, by scoring all the points for the cadets. The result of that game was 11 to 5 in favor of the Army. The next year the Army won again, with Daly a big factor in the 22 to 8 vic In 1903 and 19Q4 Daly, while still a cadet, acted as one of the coaches of the Army eleven, and the cadets won both those years from the Army team in 1913, 1914 and during the season just closed, all three of which years saw Army victories. While con nected with Army football as player c-r head coach Daly never saw an Army defeat in the annual service gridiron battle. BENDER SUES FEDS. Famous Indian Star's Action Against New League to Get $8,666 for 1916. New York, Dec. 1. Charles A. Bender, the Indian pitcher who was dropped from the Baltimore Federals last August because, as the president of the club declared, he did not keep himself in "good condition," brought a breach of contract suit for $8,666 in the United States District court yesterday against the Federal league. The suit was filed through the law firm of Wilber, Norman & Kahn of 299 Broadway. An attempt also was made yesterday to serve a summons on J. A. Gilmore, president of the Federal league, at' his office at 1.47G Broadway, but he was out. Bender is a Chippewa Indian and a graduate of Carlisle. For twelve years he was one of Connie Mack's mainstays on the Philadelphia Amer icans. Mack asked for waivers on Bender after the baseball season of 1914 and, receiving no bids for the Indian twirler from the major clubs, dropped him. Mack never could be induced to clear up the mystery re garding the Indian's release. On December 4, 1914 Bender sign ed a two year contract with the Fed eral league under which he was to get $7,500 a year. He pitched for the Baltimore Federals until August SO last, when he received the follow ing notification from C. W. Rasin, president of the Federal Baseball club of Baltimore: (Note It is needless to say that only those still living were picked for this game, played immediately after Lhe one promoted by old Doc Lardner, ! the celebrated Ringer.) j The Battle. Michigan won the toss, and prompt ly at 2 p. m. Coy kicked off to Hes ton. The burly back came smashing onward ten yards before he was fiercely tackled by Shevlin and Kil patrick together. On the first play Weeks sent Hes ton around Yale's right- end, where ' tiere was no one in the way except Shevlin. No gain. On the next play Craig whirled out around left end, where there wasn't a soul left except Kilpatrick. No gain. Hammond then punted to Rock well, who was thrown heavily by Red den, Benbrook and Schulz. Play by Play. On the first play Rockwell sent Coy hurtling through center. The only thing that stopped Coy was 246 pounds of Germany Schulz. When the two collided the spectators thought a mine had been exploded at midfield. As it was, the game had to bo stopped until a portion of the field was replaced. Philbin tried to slip outside of tackle, but there wasn't any outside. Curtis (242 pounds) lifted him up and was trying to pick his teeth with the Yale star, when the officials inter vened and penalized Michigan ten yards for unnecessary impoliteness. On the next play Heffelflnger and Schulz became involved in a personal argument, and it took the summer camp from Plattsburg and 400 cops thirty-two minutes to quell the stir ring debate. . x The Finish. At the end of the game the ball was at midfield. The score was as fol lows: Michigan, 0; Yale, 0. Ground gained by rushing by Yale, 1 1-2 yards; by Michigan, 5 feet. Against Harvard. If these two elevens can be gotten together again to decide the draw, the winner will be matched against an All-Harvard eleven. This eleven hasn't been quite picked to date, but most of them have. Nourse will play center, Pennock right guard and Ham Fish right tackle. The ends will be Campbell and Hardwick. Daly will play quarter, with Dibblee and Brick ley for the two halves, and Mahan will play fullback. This game will be played for the benefit of those who bought Bethlehem Steel between 40 and 50. The Season's Slain Feature. What was the greatest Individual Bloomer 1 PerIormance ot the recent football campaign : Manan u teat or scoring 29 points against aYle? Yost, of Michigan, doesn't think so. The Wol verine expert says by all odds the greatest exhibition was Shlverlck's kicking against Harvard. "Here was a man not supposed to be any part of a star kicker," .says Yost, "and when Barrett is hurt and the cham pionship test is on, he gives not only the greatest punting exhibitions of the year, but one of the greatest ever seen. In that game he kicked as well against the wind as Mahan did with it at his back, winning a champion ship by his work.' ' CORNELL MEN TO COACH PENN. Philadelphia, Dec. 1. J. P. Matctt ett, former captain of the Cornell wrestling team and intercolleglato wrestling champion in the' 125 pound class in 1911 and 1912, was chosen as coach of the 'Pennsylvania wrest ling team yesterday. He is the first Cornell man ever engaged to coach n Pennsylvania athletic team. The schedule ratified today Is: February 11; Navy at Annapolis; February 19, Yale at Pennsylvania; February 25, Princeton at Pennsylvania; March 4, Cornell at Pennsylvania; March 11, Columbia at New York; March 17 and 18, Intercollegiates at Princeton. New Haven, Dec. 1. Clinton II. Black. Jr., of New York city wm elected captain of the 1 1916 YaU football team at the annual footba) banquet held last night The new leader of the Blue eleven Is a guard. He is a Junior In the Sheffield Scien tine r.chool and a member of th Cloister club. Before he entere4 Yale he was captain of the Phillips Exeter Academy eleven and his flrxt year at Yale was captain of the Yal freshmen. This season was Black's flrst on the Yale varsity; In the Lehigh gam he suffered a twisted ankle, which kept him out of hard play" until Just before the Princeton game.' In thftt contest he showed his football ability and proved one of the stars of the Yale eleven. In the Harvard game ft. week later he was one of three Yale men who played through the entire contest. Ho was all over the field q that game, although he did not shine as much as he did a week previously. It had been expected until yester day that the election of the new Yale captain would be deferred 'until after the meeting of the representatives In the eligibility committee from Har vard, Princeton and Yale, which will pass on the eligibility of Harry Le Gore and the four other Yale ath lletes on December 3 and 4. It wlfi thought that LeGore the Yale full back last season, might have a chance for the position, but the decision to hold the election last night put him out of the running. It Is doubtful if he would have been elected. The Atkov nrnmlnont rnndMflt for the r UlHVl , ' v...'... post was Chub Sheldon, the tackle, who is a senior In the Sheffield Scien tiflc school, a member of the St. Anthony society and star on the Ya"fc eleven for two seasons.
