BLUE lyOWNED. Washburn Loses llar.l Game to Fair mo unt. Both Teams Pile Up Goad Sized Scores. . MAKE GOOD SHOWING. Sons cf Ichabod Stronger Than Before This Season. Line Shows Sijns of Coming to Life. The failure of the "Washburn ends to break up the delayed pass forma tions of the Fairmount team; the poor judgment of the Washburn players at critical times; the failure to make clean tackles; and the lack of spirit when the team was in the lead; all these causes contributed to the downfall of the Washburn foot ball team at the hands of the Fair mount aggregation at the Wichita fair grounds Friday afternoon. The final score was 25 to 16 In favor of the Orange and black. Each team made three touchdowns, but the collegians of the peerless prin cess went the Topeka lads one bet ter by adding two field goals to their grand total. Two of Washburn's touchdowns were due indirectly to the use of the forward pass. , , The other was a result of a blocked kick by Munford, McVey carrying the ball across. Fairmount made two touch downs by using the delayed pass, and one as a result of blocking one of Hope's forward-passes in the shad ow of the Washfiurn Jgoal line. The Fairmount players had one decided advantage, in playing on the Wichita grounds. The grounds with all due respect to the Fairmount authorities and the management of the Wichita fair grounds are the roughest foot ball grounds in Kansas, and no team unaccustomed to them has an even break. The grounds are laid out in the quarter stretch of the race track. In summer time this place is a field of alfalfa where domestic animals hang out. There are large holes left by horses, hoofs, footpaths worn by bovine and her offspring and the natural topography of the field re sembles the Missouri Pacific road bed. This is the kind . of field on which the-Washburn team met its de feat. It looked for a time as though the Washburn team had the game stowed away. At the end of the first half the score was 11 to 10 in favor of the local collegians, and with the start of the second half the wind was in her- favor. But the blue lost its "pepp" and when the Washburn team failed to block Bates' field goal after Enns had made a poor pass on th ground, the tide of the battle changed, and Washburn had to play against the' wind. ' In the second half the Washburn team lost ' its ' spirit. A " defensive style of play was resorted to, but the dope failed to work according to specifications. It was planned to play Do You Th.nEr For Yourself ?

Hope failed to punt up ' to his usual form even with the advantage of the wind. . . The Washburn line showed up somewhat stronger than against Drake and Kansas. . Holes were found in goodly number through which the Fairmount tackles and backs made good gains. But Fairmount could never have won by relying on straight football. The weakness of the Washburn tacklers was a big drawback' to the Blue defense. Time and time again Fairmount men would elude all the tacklers in the line and get down the field where McVey and Smiley would be compelled to down them. And this pair represents the tackling strength of the Washburn team. Robb is a pretty good tackier, but he has not been at his best this season on ac count of his physical condition, while Larimer hasn't done as well as was expected. Until the Washburn men can leave their feet and make some tackles, the handwriting will remain on the wall. Hope failed to play his usual good game for Washburn.- He did not use the usual amount of headwork which he displays and his punting was of an inferior quantity. The Fairmount line rushed him somewhat, but even then he did not kick high and failed to place his kicks as is his usual wont. Once or twice he called for the for ward pass, when it was an almost impossible chance to get it away and a very risky proposition. On the defense, the work of Whit ney, Smiley and McVey was all that could have been desired. Smiley on numerous occasions made brilliant tackles in the open tnat saved the Washburn goal line, as least for the time being. McVey too, brought runners to the ground that had ap parently got away. Whitney broke through the line and downed many men for losses. On the new game or the open field work, the Fairmounters were a poor second to the Washburn bunch. But twice did the forward passes of the Wichita collegians work. Poor pass ing on the part of Cox was mainly responsible as the ball usually hit the ground. The Washburn defense as far as open play -went was strong and the forward passes and onside kicks very frequently were broken up and the Washburn men took the ball. Three of the Washburn men were effective ground gainers, McVey, Smiley and Codding. Both the halves carried the ball for good gains on short end runs and forward passes. Codding was the main battering ram against the opposition line and made good gains. Whitney also gained ground, while Brethour would have done much better had not he received a severe Jolting early in the game. But one change was made in the Washburn lineup. McKnight who had played a hard game and taken a number of knocks retired in favor of Munford, Codding was shifted to cen ter while "Silent Dave" played tackle. And the way Munford played was enough to disprove the theory of Os lerism. Munford had no sooner got in the game than he broke through and blocked a punt. He showed a complete reversal of the form he showed against Kansas. Maybe it was second childhood. For the Fairmount team. Bates, the two Planks. White and Solter distin guished themselves both on offense and defense. Bates punted for the Wichitans and did a pretty good lob of it although many of his long punts were Doosted by the wind. J. Plank and Solter were the chief ground gain- j ers. tiin xnayer, who was with Washburn last season showed up well. The work of the officials1 was be yond reproach. Several times close decisions had to be made, but the work of all concerned was evidently so fair that there is no stigma of crit icism added. "We were fairly beaten." said Coach Weede after the game, "and have no apologies to make, but the result might have been turned in our favor had a little better Judgment been shown at times." Financially the game was a loss to the Fairmount team. Washburn was guaranteed J350 for the trip and the attendance wasn't enough to make more than half the amount. Wichita is evidently not a football town. Out side the student body of Fairmount who attended the game free of charge there were not more than a couple of hundred paid admissions. .Despite the hard game the Wash burn team came through the game without injuries. There were no cas ualties other than some hard knocks and bruises. The game in detail: The Fairmount team scored the first touchdown, after thirteen min utes of play. Fairmount won the toss and chose to defend the north goal giving them the advantage of a hard wind from the north. Hope kicked off and Bates made a return of 20 yards placing the ball on the Fair- mount 3 5 yard line. After two inef fectual attempts to make the 10 yards nates punted to Smiley who fumbled but recovered. Hope was forced to punt. Fairmount tried a forward pass and Smiley intercepted the I throw.

Auto Speeding Will Start at a Re srectable Hour. Savannah, Ga., Nov. 14. There is considerable difference in the time be tween the starting time of the races at Savannah and those held at Long Island and Dieppe, France. In the case of Savannah the races do not start un til 9:30 and 11 o'clock, giving every body opportunity of making all neces sary preparations, thereby taking their time in getting to the course. Now in the two former Instances it was neces sary to either sleep on the course the night previous to the race or get up so early that the discomfiture incurred was of such a nature that It took away half the pleasure of the race. Then again, all details have been so perfected that as soon as persons reach the grandstand ushers will take them to their positions and there will be ab solutely no confusion. Though the fact that the grandstand and the start and finish of the races are within the city limits and within easy access by all car lines an expense of only five cents is Incurred in reaching the course. Cobb to Play Winter Ball. Columbus. Ga., Nov. 14. Having secured consent from Mrs. Cobb to play winter baseball, Ty Cobb, De troit's noted batter, has signed for a season with semi-professionals in New Orleans. It is said here that a move ment may be started by New Orleans Southern league officials to stop the independents, as many stars, includ ing Ryan of Cleveland, have been signed in addition to Cobb. HEAR OF A BIG AUTO DEAL. few York Motor Trade Gets Humor of Proposed Amalgamation. New York, Nov. 14. Confirming of a rumor that has been heard fre quently in automobile circles regard ing the probable amalgamation of three large American factories, came yesterday when it was officially denied that George J. Kobusch will be con nected as president with the concern that it is proposed to form. The de nial was made through George G. John, treasurer and general manager of the St. Louis Car company, of which Mr. Kobusch Is president. According to Mr. John, the propos ition was made to Mr. Kobusch and was declined. The company with which the two men are connected is one of the largest producers of street cars. It also builds the American Motor automobile. It was desired to add the automobile department of the St. Louis Car company to the com bination. One of the richest men in the city is said to be back of the pro ject to amalgamate the three fac tories. Two of the factories under stood to have agreed to enter the combination are in Michigan and the third in New York state. The state ment from Mr. Kobusch la the first definite information regarding the probable formation of what several automobile dealers assert will be a trust. That the control of three large fac tories would have an effect on prices there is little doubt and it is not Im probable that if the venture Is car ried through other similar moves will be made. The most Important feature would be in the ability to secure spec ial terms on the huge quantities of raw material required. It would be possible also to lower the cost of pro duction by making in each factory only one type of car. WILL TIME FAST AUTOS. Promoters Will Catch Speed ' at Savannah With Electric Device. Chicago, Nov. 13. Chicago motor dom, already famous for the many innovations it has introduced In the way of automobile contests, is about to be honored by the use of a local timing device which will be tested in connection with the American Grand Prix at Savannah. F. H. Trego of the contest com mittee of the Chicago Motor club has received a telegram from N. H. Van Sicklen of Chicago, who now Is in Savannah assisting in the promotion of the big road carnival, asking if Trego would make the trip to Savannah and Install his timing apparatus which the Georgians wish to use to time accurately the big cars over a two-mile stretch while the race is in progress. This timer was designed by Trego especially for the Algonquin climb and because of the difficulties met in prev ious years in getting accurate results. By its use Trego demonstrated that automatic timing is from one-fifth to one and one-fifth seconds faster than a watch snapped by individuals. His scheme is simple, a string being stretched across the road at the bot tom of the hill. At each end of the string is a wooden peg which is in serted in an electrical device. As the car touches the string these pegs are pulled out, forming an electrical con tact which sets in motion a watch at the top of the hill. As the car finishes it touches another string, which pulls out two more pegs and the watch Is stopped. Not a complaint was lodged against the device at Algonquin and there was no disputing the time, as Is some times the case when watches are held by three men, who seldom agree as to the exact fraction of a second. A HUGE BID FOR CRIGER. Comiskey Offers Boston Club $10,000 for k Catcher. Chicago Nov. 14. Comiskey offered President John I. Taylor of the Boston red sox $10,000 for Catcher Lou Crlger night before lad. Taylor told of the offer yesterday. He withstood the temp tations' of a check for that sweet sum and Crlger will remain with Boston. The boss of the white sox refused to discuss the offer when asked about it. Why the sox should need another catcher of Criger's caliber could not be explained, unless Comiskey expects Sul livan to retire. "Sully" Is now in Ire land collecting a fortune recently in herited by Mrs. Sullivan. Another wind fall to Sullivan himself some time ago, besides the small fortune "Sully" has saved during his career behind the bat, puts him In a position to quit baseball whenever he pleases. Of course, it Is handy to have two catchers like Sullivan and Criger on a team, but only one can work at a time and except in case of accident one would have to sit on the bench. How ever, Comiskey was most anxious to get the Boston star. His offer of $10, 000 for a backstop whose health is none too good and who has seen the service that Criger has is entirely without pre cedent. Comiskey After nn Amateur. Bloomington, 111.. Nov. 14. George Dehner. a promising amateur player, whose home is in Lincoln, was tender ed a contract by Comiskey to work out. for first base on the White Sox team, next seaon. Dehner will likely ac-' cept, although his father rrefers to have him retire from the game and devote himself to business. Piles Cured in to 14 Days.
