l andirapped by lack of practise, but
L'(- -houl he in shape to give Erowne

hiv.trd yesterday, and her play how.
cd a rrrl improvement. Jn only one
o;i-.'-r match has she showed the all
around play that -was exhibited in the
f.r.r.1 r:atch.
Maile Vicarn is sqowIer a big im
provf ment in her play. Her first ser
vice in deadly, when she can get it
placed, and yesterday she scored two
clean aces in one game. Her second
rervice vesterday was not particularly
hard to "handle, and this fact robs her
cf an opportunity to score oftener.
More at Ease
The young feminine star Is begin
ningto get over the nervousness that
was first exhibited, and at times yes
terdav she appeared as if she was
Klav.'nr a practise match, making her
drives with an abandon, that brought
many points to her side.
Miss Vicars was handicapped yes
terday in not being able to play the
drives at her feet, and although 6he
covered the court' In wonderful style
did not annear to get away fast en
ough on close net shots.
Real Tennis
The Tact that there was but one love
game out pt the 36 shows that the
match was a real contest. The first
game went 8 6 and from then on the.
first et was a real thriller. Miss
Hopper and Eklund -saved ,the day
when Miss HoDDer returned a hard
drive and Eklund made a beautiful
passing shot after the game had gone
to duce.
In the second set Miss Vicars to
proved ter game, , and for about three
games she played wonderful' tennis;
getting everything and. carried: the
opposition-of t their -feet. Some" well
placed shots and two, outs gave them
the set The first game of the third
set was filled with good tennis feat
ures, but after the Vicars-Castle com
bination had captured this game, Miss
Hopper and Eklund r began tfa offenss
which was hard to combat, and they
won the championship by playing bet
ter tennis. " ;

Ban Johnson's Prediction That
All Minors Will Suspend is
Flouted By Leader
In a statement issued recently Ban
Johnson of the American League made
the prediction that all minor leagues
would be out of business next season,
and that only the major leagues
would be able to play their schedules.
In his opinion be majors are due for
big losses unless they get support
from the government. War condi
tions and the spirit of thrift which has
resulted from them, will, says John
son, bring about this situation in the
national game.
President Baum of the Coast-
League expressed the opinion that
Johnson was taking a pessimistic
view that is not at all-justified.
"I have just returned from the con
vention of the National Association of
Minor Leagues at Louisville," said
Baum, "and I found that the majority
of the magnates of the minors are
more hopeful than they were a year
ago. Some of the leagues had a hard
time of ii during the 1917 season, no
tably the International League. -The
Texas League, however, enjoyed one
of the most prosperous seasons In its
history. So did the Southern Associ
ation. There is no reason for sup
posing that either of these leagues
will be compelled to go out of busi
ness. ' !
Of course I don't know what other i
leagues may, do. but this I can say
positively: The Pacific Coast League
will start it3 season as usual, and it ;
will play out its schedule. There has
never been any thought here of clos
Ing the gates of the parks. We are
certain, too, that in spite of the war
we shall be able to get plenty of
players of class."
The Uruguay Chamber of Repre
sentatives has voted in favor of the
despatch of a message to the Argen
tine Chamber as an expression of i
solidarity with the argentine people

Honolulu Boy at University of Wisconsin Says !ThaUW Has
Been Boon to Football and Has Furnished Materjalfdr ; Men
Who Were Going "Over the TopReaLPIayersiAre 'Being
Developed in the Colleges, of theUliddie-West 'ThisYear
- (By JOE FARRINGTON.)
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 17. That
the 'great American Intercollegiate
game of football will not be obliterat
ed by the greater national game of
war. in the Middle West, at least, Is
now' assured by the success of the
first war football season which is
now rapidly coming to an end. Indeed
the success of the season has been
such that Just today Walter Ecker
sail, the famous footbafJ expert of
the Chicago Tribune,, comes out with
the statement that "the war has been
a boon to football."
- "That more football Is being played
In different sections of the country
despite the war is being shown every
week; when army or naval, training
teams go into action either against
each other or some college eleven,"
writes Eckersall."
Boon to Football
"Xhe war has been a boon to foot
ball. Men who have been called to
army service and who were eligible
to represent their respective universi
ties or colleges are clamoring for 'an
opportunity to don the moleskins and
go. into action against any sort ot
team, whether the opponents b
camp or college elevens.
"In order to furnish some sort of
recreation ttjose in charge of the
camps are doing their utmost to help
the men who have or could have won
their spurs on the college gridiron.
After being deprived o( collegiate af
filiations teams have been organized
at the different camps with the re
sult there Is plenty of rivalry between
them.
Stars in Lineup
"The camp teams are represented
by former stars, who, after the ardu
ous training of military or naval life,
have again got into the physical con
ditions nt bygone days, to stand the
wear and tear of a 60 minute struggle.
I They have been imbued with the splr-
it-of former days, although some of
their team mates or opponents are
"-6u .u ucr.mucn younser. ana nave Deen tauenr
principles of the new gime never
thought of in the days of the five
yard, three down rule.
,Tf the war should eqd next sum
mer players eligible to compete In
collegiate football will be In the best
of shape because of the physical
training they have undergone. They
secure not only physical training, but
mental training as well, which will
stand them in good stead when try
ing to grasp the intricate ideas of the
coaches."
Game Desired
In these words, particularly In this
flast paragraph, Eckersall has express
ed just why football, above most
other sports, is desired in war time
and is going to be continued with
further impetus an each week's games
are played.
Football trains men for service in ment. He declares that the physical
the army as fCw other sports do, it is courage required In going "over the
asserted, and for amplification of tiitop" U.'lUft I'TT fiqw:4if.

dogma followers , of this sport pohit
proudly: to: the ;host , of football stars
who, have Jumped to" the x service f of
the country in thex- crisis, '.have filled
the reserve ofHcers training camps;
an4.arft noir'tnrMce.: :
An army, officerat .Wisconsin re
cently .told "certain student ;tht it
was his belief, that tte rigorous train
ing of just one footbaU season 'was
easily- worth; what .the average man
got in - the army - In a whole . year.
Popular college", opinion . Is . almost
ready now. to accept this as an axiom.
At the opening: of ! the I season this
fall Wisconsin -with nine, other univer
sities . ot the" conterenoe, taced the
much.mootedUq'estlon of whether men
best physlcsJJyrfit for;.' service ;In. the
army should devote " their time to the
sport of, . football.;. Proiesaotfal, pro
tests . of course , arose but 'the- sports
man's belief eventually prevailed, an'4
the university entered upon the season
somewhat pessimistically.'
; .CoacheVcorne Back
"Big John" ;BAchards, a famous. Bad
ger athlete of about . ten years ago,
was brought vback' to Wisconsin to
take over the ..coaching; for-Dr. - Paul
Withlngton, . son , of Attorney D. L.
Wlthlngton of Honolulu, who Injected
th "Harvard ; system" into . western
football at a. great cost: and little suc
cess ', last year, .a Old . Mao 1 Stagg wraa
still with Chicago, '.Doc v Williams was
still with Minnesota,-! WUce wrasv still
with Oslo state Zupke , was -stiir with
Illinois and the same coaches with the
lesser of the conference xolleges. - ;
The season- opened while sporting
writers - prognosticated the future of
the sport with smair hopes, pointed to
the fact that all the bid stars had 'gone
to war, and that the teams his year
were to consist of a bunch of kids.
Each day's progress brought revela
tions, however, - fpr the . universities
were developing real teams. Old stars
were gone, but new stars were coming,
and the sport came . booming -along
like a sailing vessel, in a sixty mile an
hour gale.
And now the sport has .succeeded so
well as a war game that it Is undoubt
edly here to stay, particularly In the
universities, where it has its great
support. Even ,the moet doubting
seem. to have come to this conclusion.
"I have looked Into the record of
every man playing on the team,"- de:
clares Prof. Carl Russell Fish, con
spicuous character " of the University
of Wisconsin, professor of American
history and an ardent patriot, "and J
can say with assurance that there is
not a man playing; who, should not bef
going to school - and also engaging In
this sport.? : . ,
Courage the Same
"Big Joha" Richards points - with
pride to the fact that 22 men of Wis
consin's last football, squad are now
