All the News— Honest Opinions BROWN WILL BE HERO FOR NAVY IF HISTORY REPEATS Dalton Wan the Booting Star Two Years in a Row—Brown is Likely to be -MIDDIES WILL TRY FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT GAME Two Men on Each Team Face Each Other Saturday for the Fourth Time BY RALPH L. YONKER. The Army-Navy football game to be Hayed at the Polo ground*. New York. Saturday, la filled with peculiar sentiment that no other game in the world could be. There may be better loot ball when Harvard meeta Yale, or when bar*- mouth meeta the Indiana, but there Is never any more lively feelings of In terest and loyalty throughout the country. Thie year that weird Interest that la always aroused is Increased b> speculation as to what main Mil be the hero of the content. It U> cus tomary fbr one of the elevens to fur a real hero whenever the two teams meet. Last year the man aas brown who booted the ball -over the Army's goa. twice on kicks from placement for the only counters of the game. la. the two previous years the hero was a Navy man, also, Dalton, who kicked one goal in each year, again for the only acoree of the contest. Football fans are wondering if his tory will repeat Itself and Brown will ogala hoot the hall for the victory aa Dalton did after his first success. . Unless they are strong for the Army they are hoping that it will, for they Mhe tradition in theee historic, con flicts. Heroes and goals from the field 'have gone together in the Navy elev en. Before the days of Brown and Dalton. Northcroft was the mac on the pedestal. He was s tackle who dropped beck from the line in 1906 twice and kicked field goals, one of them from the 4S-yard line. One of the Army's greatest heroes ii Charles D. Daly, who is now coach ing the codeia Daly starred on the Army team away back In 1901, when ho was only a plebe, or what univerai -4 ties call a freshman. He had al ready played on the Harvard team . and won egpected to make a great shewing. * : The Army won from the Navy in tfce game that Daly played in by a ■ score of 11-6. Daly scored all the points for the Army. He drop-kicked n goni la the first half and took the kfcitoff at the 'beginning of the sec * cod half, running the length of the field for a touchdown. There is another bit of sentiment connected with Saturday's game that is an usual. Four men will play their fourth game against each other. If the Navy wins the game, two of the men wIH have defeated the other two four times in a row. If the Army wins, two of the men will have the satisfaction of the last laugh, at least. Brown and Capt. Gilchrist are the players who are in their fourth year for the Army. Only one man has ever participated in four victories over either team. That was Capt. Graves who* was s member of the Army team when H beet the Navy four years in s row. 1901 to 1904. - The Army men now on the team who will receive their fourth defeat if West Point loses Saturday, are Capt Hoge, a halfback, and Huston, a guard. Another coincidence that is re* markable Is that the rival coaches w#rs graduated from their institutions In the same year. Daly finished at West Point In 1905. and Coach How ard of the Navy, at Annapolis, at the same time. Strange to say those two men never met on the gridiron, for Daly played only the first two years he w’as in school and Howard only the two last years. BATTLING LEVINBKY MEETS JIMMY FLYNN NSW YORK.

Yonker PACKEY HEADS HIGHEST PRICED CARD AT W. AC Never Before Has So Much Money Been Expended for a Night’s Entertainment « * NEVER BE KIKE HAS ONE MAN DRAWN SO MUCH COIN nr Dope Hub It That McFarlaAu Will Toy With brewer and Hudson Must Fight HY RALPH L. YORKER. The highest-piic«sl card ever offered at the \S luusor Athletic club-is billed for tonight, when Packey McFarland, tile stockyards boy troui Chicago, gives an exhibition of ills skill agaiusi Harry Brewer, of Kansas City, who is himself not in the dub claws, judg ing from his record of a couple ot wins against Ferns an J a draw or Du against Hay Bronson. McFarland will draw more money than any other man who ever stepped into the Windsor ring to box eight rounds with eight-ounce gloves to no division Just exactly what Glaeaco is paying Parkey In nut «*iuteu, but it la certain tnat it is greater than ahy price paid iu recent years. Brew er, too, will gel more than most of the boys who battle across the river, lie isn't coming from Kau sas City altogether for the sake ot breathing the pure Canadian air. Besides these men. there is a semi final that ranks well up with many of the finals that have been put ou across the drink. Tommy Hudson, who hid an opportunity to meet the champiou of his class, last year, at Windsor, takes on Harry White, of York, Pa., Windsor, Ont., Detroit, Mich., and any place else that hap pens to bo convenient. While the card will be the moat ex pensive staged zeroes the river, the house will also be the best paying one ever gathered In the new club. The prices for the bout have been boosted, but the imtrons of the club have sig nified their willingness to pay the fare demanded if ouly they are promised something worth seeing. While the house tonight may not be the biggest in the history of the club, it will reap more money for the boxofllce. The dope has it that the final will be an eight-act drama intended to ! show the abilities of McFarland, with | Brewer acting as his foil. It Is con j ceded that Brewer cannot get to Mc- Farland. but that Packey can pummel Harry at will. He will not try to put him out. it is believed, but will be ' content with outpointing him. The dope, furthermore, has It that Tommy Hudson will have to show more than he ever has before to beat Hurry White. Since his knockout by ' Champion Coulon, Hudson's life has j been one of ups and downs (excuse this one) most of the time, for he i has been running an elevator for sev era! months. Hudson, on the other hand, believes that he has the old wallop that will Induce Harry to quit caring for the things of this eartn for ten seconds or so.
