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

the game safe, and rely on the wind
to carry Hope's, punts .out of danger.
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. Hope punted to Bates and then
the Fairmount team worked the ball
to the Washburn 10 yard line by end
runs ana tackle swings. Here the
Washburn backs broke through and
carried the Fairmount team back ten
yards, but on the next formation J.
Plank on a delayed pass went around
the Washburn left end for a touch
down and kicked his own goal.

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
