When the team fHI in. to march to the

It does not look as if Cadet Walmsley

MIDDIES READY FOR FRAY
Players in Splendid Condition for
Important Contest.
;Hy Te!eSH"ap?' to The Tribune. |
Annapolis. Md.. Nov. 25. -The Navy team
started this morning for Philadelphia,
where it will battle for honor of the service
against the Army rivals to-morrow. The
men are in excellent condition, with the
possible exception of Douglas. Wt tackle,
who has a stiff knee, and <'lay, whose
shoulder has not been exactly right during
the whole season owing to an old injury.
However, both will he ready t>> start the
j^anie and may play throughout. Both are
first classmen and have been on the squad
for four seasons.
The football party, consisting of thirty
three players, coaches, officials and attend
ants, numbering about sixty in all. got an
enthusiastic send-off by the brigade of mitt
shtpmen, every member following the foot
ball party :rom Bancroft Hall to the main
gate, cheering the team and every one con
nected with it. Ivieutemmt Frank G. Ber
rien, head coach, was in charge, the other
members of the coaching staff hemp Ueti
tenant Long. tZnslgns Howard and Ingram,
Midshipman Meyer an<l Messrs. Wheat on
and Olcott.
Shortly before he left Annapolis, Lieu
tenant Berrien said that there was still
some doubt as to whether Dalton or Me-
Reavey would start the game. It is ad
mitted that Dalton is far and away the
best ground-gainer the academy has, but
his work is not always up to the standard.
It has been found that Dalton does his best
work wiien left out at ihe start and then
■ ailed in. That the Navy team has little
< hance to win without Daltor; is the opin
ion of most competent Judges wno have
seen the Navy play this season.
The brigade of midshipmen, with a large
r« pr< sentation of the Navy circle, will leave
for Philadelphia to-morrow morning by
Bpecial trains. The midshipmen are con
fident thai the team will win, but many
friends of the Navy fain do not believe it
has better than an even .hance. and a
close victory Pit her way would be no sur
prise.
GOODMAN WINS LIVELY BOUT
Gets Popular Decision in Out*
pointing Sammy Smith.
'V.mhininK the speed of an Atteii and the
riisrereff atrprfesiveness of a Ketchel. Jack
<;o.,d;r.an. the West Sido lightweight, who
is considered by many to be the match of
any man his weight In thp profession, out
classed and nasily outpointed "Young"
Sammy Smith in a slashing ten-round bout
ftl thr- National Sporting Club of America
last night. Goodman forced the fifrbting
from start [o finish, and had the better of
every round with the possible exception of
the second, In which Smith held him about
even.
The bout marked the second meeting of
the pair and attracted a big crowd. As
early as 8 o'clock the hall was filled com
fortably, and by the time that Smith en
tered the ring every scat in the house was
taken, and even standing room was at. a
premium. The local sporting world was
well represented, Tom Sharkey and numer
ous other stars of the past in the arena
being present.
Goodman not only outboxed the Quaker
City lad, but a!sn outfought him in the
clinches. Jack worked away with great
fury and bombarded Smith's body with
short tipperruts and hooks that took the
away and plowed him down to a
walk.
At boxing Goodman was easily the nias
|pr. Seldom if ever in his career did the
West Sider show such magnificent form
nnd ring generalship. He never wasted a
move and started few leads until he wag
fairly sure that the glove would find its
target Jack jfibbed and poked i.ls left into
Smith's face, beating him to the punch and
niaklriK him miss his leads by wide mar
gins. Goodman's defence was perfect and
his speedy footwork carried him beyond the
r*nge of heavy blows time after time. Jack
learned in his previous bout with Smith
that the easiest way to win lay in sticking
close and fighting hard. He did bo and was
by far the better in the close work. Just
as ."'ion as the referee broke the men Good
man dashed in with a left to the face and
frequently landed i! three or four times in
Buecessssa without a return.
The fifth round was a nightmare for
Smith. Goodman made him look foolish In
the !">xing and slammed him all over the
ring. In the infighting Jack hooked a solid
left to the face and <'i<.S.--*d his right to the
Jaw. Smith rushed In to cover up, but
Goodman danced to one Bide and planted a
Volley of lefts to the face that had Smith
up In the air. Smith tried a long right up
perout, but Goodman dr<w away and
dashed in with three rights and loftH to tho
bead and ducked the counters. Smith tried
to pound the body, but Jack turned insldo
ih" attack and ripped his left to the face
time after time. Smith landed a hard right
to the nose, but paid dearly for it- Jack
hooked his left and right to the head and
at the Im.ll s«-nt in two lefts to the body.

AUIO NEWS OF THE DAY
Plan to Revive the Great French
Grand Prize Race.
KEEN INTEREST IN FIXTURE
American Automobile Manufact
urers Will Probably Send Cars
to Compete.
John Kane Mill?, that indefatigable sup
porter of motor races and performances,
has discovered in Frdnce, where be is trav
elling, that the French Grand Prize race
will be revived.
I This race, once the greatest automobile
'fixture in the world, was abandoned in 1906
partly because the manufacturers agreed
j to keep out of large car racing and partly
! because Interest had died out.
i There have been yearly races for the
smaller and lighter cars, but the big car
race was not run. Now the Automobile
; Club de la Sarthe et de TOuest has granted
I a sanction for a ««u kilometre race (372
\ mile?) to he run some time between May 15
and July 15. The course will be over the
celebrated Sarthe circuit, on which the
Grand Prize races of other years were run.
The announcement lias been received with
great interest in France, which is the more
keen as this year the Prince Henry Cup
tour, corresponding to our Glidden tour, la
open only to Germany and England.
The Grand Prize race la International in
character and is open to cars divided into
two classes. Class A must not exceed a
maximum cylinder bore of 4.33 inches or a
maximum stroke of 7.37 inches. Class B is.
curiously enough, open to any car that does
not exceed six feet two inches in width.
Since the abandonment of the and Prize
fixture in France, four years ago, American
automobiles with sufficient power to com
pete with some of the foreign cars have
teen developed. This has been proved in
several Vanderbilt and other races through
out the country. An international Grand
Prize race in France now would be of a
very different complexion from previous
races of that character. It is probable that
a goodly number of makers in this country 1
would Bend over teams to compete. ' '
One of the most interesting displays ever
made by an automobile house in Broadway
is that of the Buick Motor Company, at
55th street. They are exhibiting the Mar
quette- Buick in which Robert Burman de
feated all the American cars in the Savan
nah Grand Prize race, when he drove 415.2
miles at an average of 87 7-100 miles an
hour.
On the outside of the building is a mam
moth sign, SO by 50 feet. The car in the
showroom is decorated with American
flags and in the window are several en
larged pictures of the car in action during
the race.
A. I/. Newton, the salfs manager, says:
'•Thousands of people each day snow a
great deal of Interest in this display."

The ".Student" executed ?ome difficult
shots during the game, which drew ap
plause from the spectators He made high
runs of 79 and M, with an average of 1".

Special trains from* West Potnt and
Annapolis will brin« the cohorts to this
city to-morrow. The Cadets and Middies
dressed In their uniforms lend an atmos- .
phere of life and .color to a game which ■
has a peculiar attraction for the average
spectator and make the annual content
one of particular distinction in I season of
spectacular battles.
The average spectator will be in I Ml
by himself as a small and compact mi- j
nority. As many as ten thousand applica- j
tions for tickets have been returned. While
the speculators have been able to secure » i
few. which they are felling at fabulous '
price?, those persons outside official circles ;
v, ho see the struggle will be few and fortu- ,
nate.
The supporters of the two elevens are
willing to back the teams to the last dollar |
of the munificent salary which they receive
from the government. X;ivy followers are
so confident of victory that to-night they
are accepting even money if no odds are
forthcoming.
The cadets have a peculiar line on the !
result of the contest, which has proved un- ;
failing in the past, and they thinl. that the
game Is all over but the shouting. It Is the
custom at West Point on Thanksgiving
Day to recruit two eleven?, from the
"runta," or those who compose the small
est company, and the •flankers," or those
who compose the largest company at the
Military Academy. Tradition ha? it that if
the "runts" defeat the "flankers," then the
Army will march over the Navy to vic
tory. The game was played yesterday with
careful attention to all the details demand
ed by custom, and resulted in an over
whelming victory for the "runts" by a
score of 11 to 0. This accounts in part for
the supreme confidence which reigns in the
Army camp.
The weather man has been particularly
gracious and lenient in regard to the big
football games so far this year, and he
promises that nothing shall mar the last
struggle of the season if he can prevent it.
Clear and cool weather is predicted, and
when the whistle Is blown which marks the
beginning of to-morrow's game the condi
tions for playing will be all that could be
desired. -
GOOD HORSES IN DEMAND
Prices Keep Up. Even in the
Absence of More Stars.
COLT KICKS HIMSELF FREE
Objects to Being Boxed Up in a
Crate, and Quickly Gains
His Point,
After the deluge of equine stars and
fancy prices at the Old Glory sale of light
harness horses, at Madison Square Garden
on Thursday, yesterday's sales seamed
small in comparison, although George Bain
had several good consignments to offer the
bidders. The Riverside Park Farm lot.
headed by Baronmore, brought $27,:!Si>. an
average of $565 a head.
W. Hurry int. of Reading. Perm.. got
Baronmore for $1,700. and although he is
nearly o!d enough to vote he does not ap
pear to have deteriorated in any way
Baronmore is the sire of half a hundred
in the list headed by Ed Ouster (2:10) and
the grandsire of Justice Brooke (2^N*z>.
the world's champion two-year-old colt.
Most of the horses from that consign
ment offered yesterday were his get, and
they commanded remarkably good prices.
Fir© Opal, a two-year-old trotter with
plenty of speed, brought $1,075. Bertha C.
sold for $1,500, and one tiny filly, which was
not even dignified with a name but was
listed as black filly, brought J1.50W. This
youngster was followed into the ring by her
"dam. Marble, which produced most of the
yearlings, two-year-olds and three-year
olds offered for sale, and although the
mare is nineteen years old she brought
$1,200 and went to joint the Dromore Farm
lot.
An incident which drew every one away
from the business of buying and selling
into a distant corner of the Garden oc
curred just when the bidding was at its
height. One lusty yearling objected stren
uously to being put in a crate, and he
gained his point, for he threw himself down
until the bottom dropped out and then
made kindling wood of the remains with
his little hoofs. . =
The noise was so out of proportion to the
damage done that it was hard to realize
when It was all over that he had managed
to draw five hundred persons from the ring:
and stop all business while he was fighting
his way to freedom.
During the day 1-3* horses were sold for
$.=13,125. an average of $300 a head. The
sales for the week amount to $:»»,;>?■> for
658 head of horses.
The principal sales were as follows:

FOUR GOLFERS LEFT IN
Travis and Douglas Among the
Survivors at Lakewood.
KEEN MATCHES THE RULE
"Mr. Mott" and Percy Platt Go
• Down Before the Wizard of
Garden City.
[By T*>tr*i *■■ to The Tribune. 7
Lakewood. Nov. 25.— Four feWtn wtth
golfing reputations earned place* in th«
peml-flnal round of the Invitation tourna
ment resumed to-day over the links of the
Country Club of I>ak«wo<vl. They w«r»:
Walter J. Travis. si Garden City; P. W.
Whittemore of Boston; Findlay S. Doug
las, of Nassau, and George T. Rrokaw. of
Garden City. They will meet a? named la
the morning.
Until yesterday Whittemore was »
stranger to I^akewood. but now that the
Country Club of Brooklln* player has beta
seen at match play he is regarded with
greater re.«pect than ever. There is noth
ing attractive about his style, for th» erst
while Harvard athlete depends entirely
upon a half swing. This doe 3 not handicap
him, however, so far as getting distance ia
concerned, for his powerful wrists and fore
arms are brought into play in a manner
calculated to make a less sturdy individual
envious.
Whittemore competed in th* national
' amateur championship tournament at
■ Englewood in 190»; and was put out by H.
' (handler Egan. The Brookiine man's gam»
i has improved steadily since then, and his
many successes last summer over course
i in the vicinity of Boston were well earned.
Without doubt Travis will be keen to get
back at Wnlttemore for t^e defeat received
! at the hands of the Brookiine captain in
i the final round of the Essex County tourna
f ment last summer. That Travis la not
i likely to be caught off his game was shown
' a.cain to-day, when he played in hi? best
I form both morning and afternoon. He was
j especially deadly in the first round match
; with Richard Mott.' the Riverton golfer.
I who captured the chief cup at Atlantic City
In the spring. Travis never made a mis
■ take, going out in the par figures of .15. He
1 was then so far up on Matt that the Sna!
■ outcome was a foregone conclusion. As if
Ito make assurance doubly- sun Travis
! reeled off the next three hole." In 2. '■', and i.
I which settled Mr Mott" M the tune of 7
1 up and 6 to play.
j Travis, after luncheon, faced Percy
Platt. a lad in his teens living at Deal.
Off the tee thi* youth got distances that
i made the gallery gasp and Travis almost
I invariably had to play the odd This ex
ceptional driving gave Plait an advantage
I throughout the long outward journey, but
! when he lost the eighth hole he stood on*
down. The boy won the next, however, -•>
that the- pair turned for home all square.
It was then generally conceded that
i Tra vis's almost machine-like short game
i would gain the day on the inward nine,
1 which i.« more than seven hundred yards
j les? than the first half. They halved ths
i first wate- hole in three, but the Garden
J City man then broke away by "popping:"
lin a two at the short eleventh. Travis
! never let up thereafter, winning th«
: twelfth and thirteenth, halving the four
i teenth and settling the match with a UMI
i at the fifteenth hole, where he stood four
] up with three to play.
j la the morning Platt eliminated C. X.
j Phillips, the Atlantic City golfer, who re
i turned a 79 in the medal round. An 'in
! 1 swat incident occurred in this match
when Platt got a three at the 210-yarxl
: thirteenth, yet lest, Phillips sinking a long
; put for :i two.
! Doubtless the most spectacular play ia
I the scoring line was the golf shown ny
I Douglas on the homeward nine against
' Arden M Robbins. el Garden 'it;. Cong
i out neither man could gain an advantage,
I but Douglas, thanks to a happy putting
I vein, completely overwhelmed his oppen
' ent from that point. T.ie Scot be^an with
; a two at the tenth and then worked in four
I consecutive threes. He had a four at th»
! fifteenth and won the match by » up and
,2 to play with a five at the sixteenth. It
j looked then as if he would come home si
a, but he tripped up a' the seventeenta
' where lie took a six after almost reach-
I Ing the green en ii;- second shot. As M
I was be got the second nine in 33.
Douglas met S. K. de Forest, of Shinne
cock. later In the day. and won easily on
the fourteenth «re< a "JCoi -• fortunate

Congratulations were showered upon John

I covered himself with glory by winning a
