m play mum GAMES IN NEW YORK Officers of Both Branches Start Movement to Leave Franklin Fieiri. TENTATIVE PLANS OFFERED Lease of Local Baseball Grounds Most Favored Scheme, but All Agree That Some Change Is Necessary. Army and navy officers stationed In and around New York brought with them from Philadelphia on Saturday a piece of news which seemed yesterday to give them no end of satisfaction. A movement has been started in the Army £ - . Sivy Clnb at Washington to ar range for the playing of all future ath letic contests between the government naval and military academies here in New York. Several tentative plans have been pro posed to brine this about, and while cone of them has as yet been selected to the exclusion of the others, the gen eral proposal has met with the enthusi astic support of members of the Army Athletic Association and the Navy Ath letic Association. These are the plans under considera tion: First, for the athletic associations of the two branches cf the service to purchase a park in or near New York end old on it stands capable of holding frtmi forty to Sfty thousand persons; second, to acquire a long term lease on & piece of ground suitable for athletic competitions and build stands upon it, and. third, to lease either the Polo grounds or the grounds of the New York American League Baseball Club and play the annual Army-Navy football p&mes on one or the other of these. In ca!=e the last plan is adopted, officers at the associations will attempt to lease the grocuds for a comparatively short tine, say. three to five years. Officers Prefer New York. , Ever since the. renewal of the Army- Navy matches sea in the service have been anxious to obtain some ] ark of their own. and from time to time Wash ingxon nas been suggested as a suitable Situation- But New York, being more family accessible to army and navy offi cers generally, and ■•.•-..-• of Its su perior transit facilities, is more favored by them. Byron Long; who played brilliant foot ball when he -was a midshipman, has riade a thorough, study of the situation, and believes that one of the three plans mentioned will prove practicable. Other cSicers -who have talked over the ques tion believe there is a strong chance of the two service elevens lining: up against each other in or near Wat York in 1911- The plan that has met the strongest approval is that of purchasing outright a park here and building stands on it. In favor of this it is pointed out that the army and navy would have absolute control cr -. and That every ticket could be allotted to army and navy JT.fZI. Furthermore, the park could be used rot only for the annual football game between the two academies, but, with the approval of the War and Navy de partments, for other dual competitions. Fuch as baseball and track meets. It ■would have an even preat«=r value in that it would afford a field for the ath letic teams of visiting battleships and Adjacent forts to practice on and to hold their match gsunes. Play Request Appropriation, rouble, however, is the question t^ense. There is serious doubt as to the ability of army and navy officers to raise sufficient funds to pay for land and stands. To meet this objection it is suggested that a bill could be introduced in Congress asking for an appropriation. : . this were done, and the bill passed. the new athletic park would, of course, be the property of the government. In regard to the second plan, the main difficulty seems to lie in being- able to get a long enough lease on a suitable park to warrant building stands. Advocates of this plan urge in its favor that the I-ark could be rented for athletic con t«*ts when it was not needed for army e::d navy teams, and that the rental thus derived would go far toward paying the ;»vase money. But this would be more or le?s subject to governmental approval. The third plan is generally considered the most practicable, in that it does not involve an expenditure beyond the pres ent means of the Army Athletic Associ ation and the Navy Athletic Association- Jis advocates immediate adop tion, both en the ground that it would give Immediate relief by placing nearly 25.<0U0 more tickets at the disposal of army and navy people and because they K-Jieve it sound business Judgment to 50 into the propositions of buying outright er.d long leasts with more deliberation. and not until a careful estimate can be made of the funds which the two. as tooations can be sure of raising. Not Enough Scats to Go Around. In revent years applications for tickets to th* Army-Navy football game have Increased so enormously that those in charge of the distribution of the tickets hay*- N-en utterly unable to meet the cemaad, and have been greatly embar ra>scd in allotting the tickets at their disposal. Franklin Field has a capacity <>t only 'JbA**K while the Polo Grounds mn H.at approximately '£>.<**} persons. M-nwr,' students of the University of Pennsylvania, under the existing ar rangr-ment, have the privilege of pur chasing tickets to the game up to the number of ejght thousand, the proceeds pc-in? to charity. So at present the crmv and navy have to be contented tvlth twenty thousand tickets for the I lei^od or purchased by the Army Ath laic Association and the Navy Ath letic A£s»x-:aiion every ticket would be at the disposal of the tv.o associations, end this is what th»»!r officers want to bring about, although they '5° not under value or fail to appreciate the courtesy CcaCniitd ..i. »ccood yaje. > * 4 " " a:v *^ > "^ t^L^-^s^**^ ■ "•^wm^-^. __^ ' — ■ — ■ To-da.r. rain or >nn«r To-morrow, fair; «>« winds.
