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.
"Chairman Football Committee."
That commercial motives may not
be alleged to the University of Pitts

the proceeds of the
game must be donated to some worthy
charity and that both elevens must
pay their own expenses.

84 260 t specified that
St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 1. 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

l icut. Daly Ordered to Honolulu for
Three Years His Teams
Always Beat Aiavy.
"West Point, Dec. 1. 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.
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.' '
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

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

thought that LeGore the Yale full

for the position, but the decision to
hold the election last night put him
out of the running. It Is doubtful
