a chestnut filly named Beldame. Second place to
her would re quit* satisfactory-
Possibly the most unrcrountable feature of the
raws was the fact that enough men and women per
ruaded then.selves into th* foolish fiction tha; Me-
Chtsney could beat Beldame to pound his price
from eights to sixes. The opening odds In the .ase
of each of the others «onred as the market de
veloped Africander went from fives to sixes, and
Broomstick from fives to seven-. The few layers
who had UN courage to offer S to 6 against the

and posted 3 to 1 on.
The additional quarter of a mile had no effect on
He.dcroe-s speed W stamina A second after the

way, and when they tried to get within speaklne
distance she flitted away like a phantom. Afri
cander snd Brooms** divided the task of keeping
her in pisht between them, and M'Ohesney plugged
earnestly alone in their wake.
Only «O0» did O'Ne'.l make at.y attempt to ride

to have etopp^i to Kraxe by the wayside. In the
etretch Africander gave it up. but Broomstick hung

Beldame, he reached the goal In front of McChes
sjcy. The old red horse made a bold attempt to
duplicate his famous etretch run. and so far suo
reeded us. to belt his younger rival Africander.
The time. 2 35 --'. was slow rather than fast, but
It m'.i?t be taken into oonslders-tlon that Beldame
was never extended and that she won In a canter.

Second Special was to be her last race In his
colors, and he naturally wanted to see her tri

sjeswei that made- up the field were brought so

It peemed a difficult matter to fait on the likeliest
Trinner. Mr. Hitchcock's Foxhtmter was finally
ch"S»ti a id backed down to even money. The
chestnut horse's old rival. St. Jude. who gave
him four pounds by th« scale, was second choice

Only One Touchdown Against Up-
State Team— 10 to 0.
Columbia disappointed even the pessimists In Its
game with Union College, at American League
Park yesterday afternoon, In which the Blue
and White- eleven won by the meagre score of
10 to 0. Against a team which ranks decidedly as
one of the second ola^s. the Blue anil White played
a Blow, uninteresting and very ragged game.
The new m"n tried <>ut showed little ability to
take advantage of their opportunities. The de
fence of the Columbia playen was their best
quality, but Union twice pained Us distance at
that. On the offence the Columbia line was at its
worst. It failed to start with the ball, never got
the Jump on tho other team, and failed signally to
provide help or interference for the work of the
backs. The bucks did fairly well, considering this
lack of support. Probably when Columbia's best
men are all in the game, eume first class football
may be seen at American League Park. None the,
less, yesterday's same showed that there- Is plenty
Of work ahead of Morley to develop from this ma
terial an eleven capable of coming out victorious
In Columbia's later big games.
At the start of yesterday's play Columbia rushed
the bail In fairly good style to within five yards of
Union's goal. Theie the visitors held for down*.
Columbia gaining only two yards in four downs.
Then Union rushed the ball tight yards before
being forced to punt. Colombia recovered the ball
at her 46-yard line on a fumble, and than, with
slow play, carried It back to the 36-yard line, where.
Metzentr.ln dropped a pretty goal from the field,
scoring four point! for the BltM and White. The
rest of the half was slipshod, and there waa no
more scoring.
In tho second half Union, lost the, ball after the
kick off on her 20-yard lino on a fumble. Thi >■ o
lumbia took It to the three-yard mark, only to be
held for domi asain. Duel] was slummed over for
the only touchdown of the afternoon, from whl h
Metzenthin kicked goal.

Philadelphia. Sept. ?<. -Pennsylvania'!) football
eleven barely managed to win Its first gam* of the
season this afternoon against the State College.
The only score of Die contest was made by the
Quakers in the last two minutes of the second half,
when they threw Plekarski across live, line for a
touchdown, from which Cordon kicked the goal,
making it « to 0.
From the very start of the first half it was evi
dent that th« visitors from, Bellefonte were not
only as heavy as the Red and Blue, but that they
knew just as much about the game at this stage
of the season. Neither team could gain consist
ently through this twenty-minute half and the ball
see-saw«d up and down the field amid an atrocious
lot of fumbles. In the second half of fifteen min
utes Perm tried a kicking game and then took her
beefy guard. ZiUlgen. out of the fullback position,
placing a lighter man in the job. Gaining the
striking point by a series of well directed punts
she. took the ball on the twe.nty-flv»-yard line and
rushed It over two minutes before th« close of play.

Old New Players Expected to Make
Strong Team.
Princeton. N*. J.. Sept 24 (Special).— The TJger
aspirants fnr football honors have been working
their hardest at Osborne Field, the scene of mar.y
a hard struggle for the mastery. There lira several
3.">-pounders In ;he squad, and a number of men
whose weight come.i near that figure. The big men
of last year back are Harold Short, centre; Cooney,
left tackle, and Dillon. left guard. Tha three
s«m In excellent condition. Several strong men
are. making good bids for De Witt's old place at
right guard. Martin. '07. who played on th» scrub
team again/el Da Witt last year, reem.i now to have
an good a show as any one. although Rafferty Is
no mean antagonist.
Who will nil "Cap" Reed's place at tackle la
stiil an open question. Herring and Daub, '07
men, am making the best showing, with Daub a
bit In the lead, because of his experience a.* sub
tackle on the 'varsity laat M-aaon.
For the end poatttOM left vacant by Davis and
Henrj'. the three substitute ends of last year's)
team, Brasher. Tooker and Crawford, are all back
In uniform. Ward, of last year's scrub team, and
11. K. Scott, of the freshman team, are also good
A merry struggle la promised befclnrl the line at
the quarterback position. "Tommy" Burke will, of
course, have first call, because of his Mtper'.encs
but there are several newcomers who are prepared
to give Burke a hard rub. The best of tbese Is
Helm, the little quarterback from Exeter, who Is
mukliiK good nt Princeton and showing that he la
really of 'varsity calibre. He Is a fair kicker, a
wonder at running: back punts, and can handle
a team very satisfactorily. Another man, Rltter.
comes from Lawrencevllle with a good reputation,
but ho has yet had no chance to show what he
can do.
One of the halfback positions will be token care
of by Captain Walter Foulke and the other by
'•Shorty" King, the diminutive half of last year's
team. Whether or not Miller will again fill th»
fullback position roots entirely with MoCormlck
Tho latter la a newcomer at Princeton, and so far
has lived up to the reputation he made at Etxe4-r
last year. Should he be. found capable of filling 1
tha position, Miller will probably return to his old
I>on(tton at end. Miller on the track team has a
record of 10 flat for the hundred.
Quarter, Guards and Ends Still
Needed, Hoxvever.
Cambridge. Mass., Sept. 24.— Harvard footoball
players will tackle hard and fiercely this fall. Xot
satisfied with tho manner in which the, men were
tackling the dummy. Captain Hurley to-day set a
ladder on Its side at a distance of eight feet from
the dummy so as to form a hurdle. As each
candidate tackles the dummy he has to hurl his
body over the ladder with sufficient force to carry
it all the way to the dummy, or elso turn himself
into a human plough by hitting the ground before
he reaches It. Only one practice was held to-day,
the regular practice In the. afternoon being aban
The training table -will be started Monday with
the following men: Hurley, Meier, Mlll\ Noyes.
Guilds. McFaden. Wllber. Squires, Montgomery,
Nesmith, Moans and Cunnlff. •
The day before football practice opened on Sol
diers' Field the situation was regarded as one. of
the most dismal that Harvard had ever faced.
The deefats of last year had deprived Harvar-1
football of much of her prestige. Few regular
players from last year's sloven were expected to
come out for the team, and It was not Unowu
where big. hoavy material was to be found.
Tho developments of the week have done much
to dispel this pvsslrr.isV. Meier, centre, and
Parkinson, tackle, two strong, experienced men,
are to play this year after all. Word has been
received, however, that Harry Le Moyne, the
big freshman guard of last year, who distin
guished him--. If with tha shot and in the swim
ming pool aa well, will not be able to play, owing
to conditions in his studies. If he returns to col
lege at all.
Tha week has shown that Wrightington and
Captain Hurley have their work cut out to de
velop a quarterback, two powerful guards and a
pair of swift, strong ends. Koyes, Carl Marshall's
understudy of last year, la out for quarter again
this year, and has shown speedy form. A stronger
main than he will have to be found If a champion
ship team is to be developed at Cambridge, how
ever. Another candidate is Hugh Kernan, brother
of the '02 captain. Although he weighs only 147
pounds. Kernan Is very fast and strong. H* s
Inexperienced at quarter, but worked with his
brother all summer, and now is doing the best
punting of any of the candidates on the equail.
Siarr, for t*j jeurs quarter at Groton, Is now
Squadron A's Second Team Defeats
'New -Haven Freebooters.
A closely contested polo gair.« was played yester
day afternoon at Van Cortlandt Park between the
second Squadron A team and the New-Haven Free
booters. The regular match scheduled for the Van
Cortlandt cups was postponed until next Saturday,
as the New-Haven club could not set its full team
together yesterday. Rathborne and Stoddard were
the only members of the visiting team who ap
peared. The other two places were filled from the
Squadron A ranks and the team called the New-
Haven Freebooters.
The latter received two goals by handicap, and In
the first period they made two goals to the same
number for the squadron, Uoldsborough and Law
rence making the goals. In the second period the
squadron team did better work. Leavitt. Hunt and
Douglas making some brilliant plays, which were
heartily applauded by the larga number of specta
tors present Tho third period was the best played
on« of the match, and the goal scoring honors "fell
to New-Haven. Rathborne Kettlns the only goal. In
tho linal period the squadron team managed, by dint
of hard work and long carries .town the neJd by the
Hunt brothers mid Douglas, aided by the accurate
hitting of Neilsou, to win just enough to get tha
game by one goal. Nellson made the drcidlns point
after a hot fltcht for the ball around th« goal posts.
The grandstand waa well rilled. The squadron
coach carrieu a party of squadron members and
friends from the Hotel Savoy, and a number of
automobiles and fashionable traps were lined up on
the east side of the Held. The Held was in excellent
condition, ami the placing, for comparatively new
players, wan fast. The line-up and summary:

Andover, regarded as 'varsity material, has
changed his plans and will return to Andover and
enter Harvard In '05.
There are already three 200-pound slants out
for centre— Wilder (221 pounds). Cunneff (222) and
White (222). Wilder has played well for three
years on the second team, but baa never shown
'varsity form. Although fat. Cunneff is a very
strong man. and may develop. Ou Monday Parker,
a giant freshman from Milton Academy. Is due to
report. In "prepr" school he waa In a class by

The only man In sight for an end position Is

Already Captain Hurley ha« enough first class
material out to make two pets of half and full
backs. At halfback he, Nichols. Nesmith. Grins
and Randall are all good. and. at full Mills a.-.d
Hartley are heavy and fast.
A good team Is being dev»!op*t! at KorJhaa, de
spite th-» handicap of several losses. Smith, the
coach, had the first line-up yesterday against the
freahmen. It brought out a fast end In <>"Mi;>y,
formerly of Holy Cross. whr> bids fair to fill the
plnrn left vacant by the a; r:\iluatiTi of Plunkatt.
The other end will be cared for by Metre*, who
returns after a year's absence for a post-graduate
course. A distinct loss to the team *s the deter
mination of Gonzales, the 2W-p«und. centre, not to
come back to college. His place will be taken by
(.'aplaln Glennon. who changes from guard. A fine
new plays* Is Fltzpatrick. weighing SIS pound*. :
who will play left guard. A frame Is to be played
at Worcester with Holy Cr.>ss. The local season
