Eastern Football Season Opens To-day
-~~-'?'-""""""-""""- ' ^-^ ? ..."?'.''.". i? i i ?m
With Several Leading College Elevens in Action
Strong Holy Cross Team May
Spring Surprise on Harvard
penn to Play First Game for Coach Heisman, Facing
Delaware College Outfit; Rutgers, Syracuse and
Penn State Also Swing Into the Campaign
By Ray McCarthy
To-day marks the grand opening of the football season. It won't be
guch a grand getaway, however, for Yale, Princeton and several other
leading elevens will be idle. Then again, the closing of the season is
always grander, as far as brilliance and closeness of contests are con?
But in any event, the season will be inaugurated this afternoon and all
A^t-hall followers will be interested in seeing what they can see.
In the East most o? the optics of
?idiron lovers, followers et al, will
be focused on the Harvard Stadium,
first, because Harvard is the only
te?m of the "Big Three" playing to
?t?, ?nd secondly, because this game
m?\ be about the best of the day.
Holy Cross will help the Crimson
nsher in the season, and whether the
Cambridge students win or not there
ja sure to be more or less crimson
spread ?bout. Harvard should and
probably will come off victorious, but
the Worcester eleven is prepared to put
tip one of those old fashioned every
Vody-kick-in- battles. It has some goad
players in its line-up, and if it gets the
jojnp ?ny number of things may hap?
* Holy Cross Formidable
We have used the foregoing phrases
and ?djectives in saying that this game
will be a hard-fought struggle. We
fig-re it this way: Holy Cross will
??obably fight tooth and nail for the
fist half and may' hold the Crimson
oa even terms. Then, if the Cambridge
beef and brawn, of which there are con?
siderable in the Harvard line-up this
??ion, hasn't sapped the entire
itrength of the Purple eleven it may
go on and give Fisher's eleven some-,
thing to remember it by- Jh any event
it should be an interesting game.
. ThiB seems to be about the only real
contest on the list for to-day. The
other? probably will be mere work
oats. Penn, for instance, will encoun?
ter Delaware, but should experience no
difflculty in winning. The game, how?
ever, will be watched with interest, in?
asmuch as it will be the Red and Blue's
5r?t showing under the tutelage of
John Heisman, the veteran mentor who
c?me up from Georgia Tech to succeed
Bob Folwell. The whole Eastern foot?
ball world will be looking to see what
Heisman'? first showing will display.
Penn State will entertain Muhlen
berg at State College in what probably
will develop into a track meet. For
State it proDablv will be an afternoon's
exercise: for the AUentown eleven just
? beating. The same goes for the
gyracuse-Hobart contest. It will be an
opMrtunity for the Orange to limber
_p?ag?inst some new faces, but for
hard practice the scrubs probably could
do better in these two cases.
Rutgers Meets Ursinas
Over at New Brunswick, Rutgers will
take on Ursinus. However, there is
nothing to get excited about over this
game, which will probably consist
mojtly of straight football and which
thereby will be only a drab exhibition.
Bulgers figures to win by three touch?
downs or more.
Lehigh is playing Lebanon Valley in
it? opening day contest and is apt to
receive some strenuous opposition.
Lebanon Valley hitherto has appeared
?t a later date on the Brown and
White's schedule and generally has put
te a good battle. Hobey Light, the
flashy back of last year's Penn team,
is coaching Lebanon this year, and be?
ing fast himself will probably have a
ipeedy and aggressive eleven on hand
to meet the Bethlehem aggregation.
There is one other game which may
h? rather closely contested. That is
the West Virginia-West Virginia Wes
leyan struggle at Fairmount. This
meeting in the past has generally taken
place at a much later date. The Wes?
tern students always have given the
Morgantown eleven a close tussle and
will probably de so to-day. These arw
?bout the only games of importance on
the schedule. '

O'Neill, Columbia Coach,
Warns His Charges
Colombia's football squad was again
dismissed for the week end by Coach
O'Neill, after a light work-out on South
i Field yesterday afternoon. Due to the
i large numb? of cripples and hot
I weather, the daily drill was consider
i ably shortened. Three teams ran
| through signal practice for an hour.
After practice Coach O'Neill called
! the men who are on the training table
around him and warned them to keep
i strict rules. He declared that any !
man breaking training would be dis
missed from the squad. Robeson. for
| mer star end at Rutgers, was on South
Field giving the Columbia squad the ;
once-over. Robeson is at present a
student at Columbia Law School, but
is not eligible to compete on any teams.

Fordham Cripples Back;
Syracuse Man Reports
Some of Fordham's injured football
candidates returned to practice at
Fordham Field yesterday afternoon,
and as a consequence the prospects for
a winning eleven took on a much
brighter aspect. Miller, one of the end
candidates, who had been confined to
! the infirmary for the last week with
I torn ligaments, was out for a light
| work-out, and should be ready for to?
morrow's scrimmage. Banks, another
end, who wrenched his knee running
down a punt la.:* week, will probably I
don his togs to-day or Monday.
Coach Joe Dumoe spent the major
part of yesterday's practice putting
the tentative elevens which he has se?
lected through rapid-fire signal drills.
Cliff Steele, former Syracuse player,
reported for practice yesterday. He is
very fast and is a good punter.
Woodring in N. Y. A. C.
Medley Relay To-day
An added feature of the annual fall
! games of the New York A. C. at
| Travers Island this afternoon will be
? a medley relay race in wMch six of
i the local club teams will oppose an |
' all-Olympic team composed of Allan
Woodring, Syracuse; Jake Driscoll,
Boston; Mike Devaney, New York and
Larry Shields, Philadelphia.
Howard Drew, the world's record
holder for 100 yard3, will be a starter
in the 110-yard dash. Eldon Jenne,
of Washington Agricultural College
and a member of the American Olympic
team, will give an exhibition of pole
Gardiner White
And Dyer Lose
In First Round
Young, After Beating "Met"
Runner-Up, is, in Turn,
Put Out by Knapp
The unexpected popped up from
every corner of the lot i i the first
and sc;ond rounds of match play in
the Cherry Valley Club golf tourna?
ment -t Garden City, L. I., yesterday.
By nightfall the home club players
had got their licks in, with the re?
sult that it seems quite certain the
cup, or the main prize, will remain
at Cherry Valley. At least there is
more thr.n an equal chance that it
will; for in the semi-finals, Grant Pea?
cock, a Cheery Valley member, is wait?
ing to meet E. S. Knapp, of the West
brook Cub, while Alex Calder, a
homer, will stack up against A. S.
Bounre, of the Meadow "rook Club.
In each case it is figured the Cherry
Vallew players have the edge on their
opponents, and bctt are favored to
come through to the final.
Gardiner White, of the Nassau Club,
runner-up in th: Metropolitan tourney
this year and player par excellence,
was eliminated yesterday in the very
first round by W. H. Young, a free
lancer, who won at 3 and 2. Young,
while not a golfer of note, has a habit
of ? ropping in on these small tourna?
ments and occ .sionally taking a fall
out of some star.
Young Bows to Knapp
After putting out White from furthet
competition, Young himself was
benched in the afternoon when he
suc.umbed to the prowess of E. S
Knapp, of Sleepy Hollow. This was a
painstaking and carefully fought
struggle Neither, particularly Young
took any desperate? chances during the
rounc", preferring to stick to the more
or less conservative type of game. Thi?
contest was feature., ry the studiec:
shots of the contestants. Young, al
bay on the'final green, did resort to s
bit of flashy play, but it availed hin
He and his opponent were on th?
green in 2. Knajjp had putted anc
had laid Young a stymie. That per
plexed and worried the latter. He ad
mitted he was stuck, then gave th?
situation his entire attention. H?
was going to use a putter, but a care
ful scrutiny convinced him a mashi?
wa the necessary club. But th?
mashie jump only served to get hin
over trfe other ball and not into th?
cup, so he lost out. 'Twas tough.
('aider's work was about the best o
the . day. Besides overcoming F rani
W. Dyer, who has been playing exceed
ing well this season, by a score of '
end 1, he took on and defeated n
other than C. E. Van Vleck, a golfe
who has a lot of good shots in hi
bag ever, if he doesn't always brin
them into use. Yesterday was one o
the days he s shooting away fror
the main line, and as <3alder was a

Ensor, Triple Winner, Puts
Up Poor Ride in Feature
-?? ? .
"Buddy" Finishes Last in
Field of Three With
Wilson's Thunderstorm
By W. J. Macbeth
Though "Buddy" Ensor rode three
winners at the Aqueduct track yester?
day afternoon, he came a bad cropper
in the feature race when he finished
last in a field of three with R. T.
Wilson's Thunderstorm. And, more's
the pity, this sensational artist of the
pigskin put up what appeared a very
weak and indifferent finish on Thunder?
The feature was the Banquet Handi?
cap, with $1,500 added, at a mile and
a sixteenth. A. K. Macomber's five
year-old gelding Royce Rools got the
lion's share of tha prize money be?
cause of a judicious and heady ride
on the part of J. Mooney. This lad
waited off the early pace, with Royce
Rools, came to the front in the last
furlong, and was going away at the
Last Tuesday Royce Rools, at the
generous odds of 20 to 1, ran a race
that would have earned brackets nine
times in ten, but still finished last
in a field of five good handicap horses.
He was but a little more than a
length behind Pilgrim, the winner, at
the end after getting away last and
having to run to the outside of his
field all around the long turn. On j
that occasion Royce Jlools was run?
ning the strongest at the end, and
those who yesterday figured he had
only to run back to that good race
were not disappointed in the Banquet.
Tailor Maid Sets Pace
Mrs. G. W. Atkinson's three-year
old filly Tailor Maid helped to put
Thunderstorm on the shelf. This filly
broke running for Callahan and soon I
opened up a lead of a couple of j
lengths. Ensor used up Thunderstorm
in the early stages trying to run down
I the pacemaker, while Mooney, show.
1 ing better judgment, rated Royce
! Rools off tho killing paco. Mooney
! therefore was able to save every pos
! sible inch of ground on the way home,
! while the inevitable happened to the
' other pair.
Tailor Maid flew around the stretch
' turn so fas she couldn't keep the rail
1 and Thunderstorm, flying after, went
' even wider. When straightened for
! home both were out near the middle
| of the course. There was room on
| the rail to drive through with a wagon
j load of hay. Mooney seized the op
i portunity, crowded Royce Rools along
at top speed, and soon was on even
terms with the others. It was a gallop
the rest of the way for the gelding.
Rovce Rools won by nearly two lengths
I in tho fast time of 1:45 2-6.
A far different ride was that which
! Ensor put up on R. T. Wilson's LocuBt
| Leaves, a cheap plater that won the
?fifth ?ace, at six and a half furlongs.
?"Buddy" put up a million dollar finish
, against Mooney, who had the- leg up
' on. the favorite, Liola. It was a case
I of one jockey laying it all over another,
j rather than superiority in horseflesh,
! that decided the issue.
j Liola put away Liberty Girl, the
early pacemaker, and seemed to have
the race won when Ensor came like a
stone out of a catapult, through the
last quarter. He hooked up with the
favorite at the sixteenth pole. Mooney
took much for granted. He attempted
to save the day with a band ride and
went to the whip too late, as Ensor
simply was not to be denied. As a
matter of fact, Ensor rode Mooney
rather closely through the last hun?
dred yards and twenty yards from
home Beemed to bump him. But there
was no complaint lodged. Locust Leaves
got up to win by a nose on the post.
Defeats 1 to 2 Farorite
In much the same fashion Ensor
brought Albert A, the second choice,
home a winner over Abadane, the 1 to
2 favorite, in the third race, at a mile.
He rated his mount behind the pace
to the furlong pole, then came on and
won in a great drive. On this occason
Ensor made Kummer look pretty cheap
in comparison.
With Santa Cfaus, in the second dash
at five furlongs, it was a different pro
postion entirely. This one had all the
foot and never left the race in doubt.
Episode, thf? favorite, Was the con?
tender all the way, and had no better
excuse than Buxon in the saddle.
The opening race, at three quarters
of a mile, was won by Jimmy Murphy's
Rood two-year-old filly, Mavourneen.
Davies had all the luck at the break
and, away flying, soon opened up a
lead of three lengths. He needed all
that room before the finish, as Teddy
R. hung on gamely throughout, and
came with a rush at the end. Mavour?
neen lasted to win by a head.
The Oneck Stable's Frigate took the
last race, at five furlongs, in a hard
drive from Quecreek after setting the
pace all the way. Smoke Screen out
gamed Pry Moon for the show by a
short head.

By Fred Hawthorne
There were no singles played yester?
day, ether in the men's or women's
j events, in the annual Castle Point
trophy tournament of the Hoboken
?TenniaClub, these being reserved for
this afternoon and to-morrow. In the
mixed doubles Mrs. David C. Mills and
Gerald B. Emerson, of Orange, de?
feated Mr. and Mrs. Paul Martin, of
New York, by a score of 6-0, 6?2, in
the third round brackets.
Mrs. Edward V. Lynch and Mrs.
Mills will meet this afternoon in the
i semi-final round of the women's sin?
gles, and the winner will meet Miss
! Marie Wagner, who reached the final
! round on Thursday. Alfred D. Ham
j mett and Fred C. Anderson will meet
i in the semi-final round of the men's
'singles this afternoon, with the winner
I to play Ludlow Van Derventer in the
final to-morrow. The mixed doubles
will also be finished to-morrow.
The meek and much-maligned "for- !
eign correspondents" from this city
who are covering the Hoboken tourney, !
have found a friend in court in the !
person of Haddon Ivins, chairman of
the tournament committee, who has in?
stituted a system of keeping the score
boards up to date that should be copied
by all other clubs.
In marking up the matches played or
defaulted on the first day, Ivins wrote j
the results with a blue pencil, the j
second day results with a red pencil,
the third with black, and then went
back to the blue, the red, etc., on suc- j
ceeding days. How come? Simply!
this, that when the correspondents j
reac.h the courts fach day they know ,
just what matches were played on that
day, and ever'thing.
Next Monday, on the clay courts of
the New York Tennis Club, the New j
York State championship tournament j
for women will begin, in accordance
with the ruling of Julian S. Myrick,
president of the United States Lawn ;
Tennis Association.

Man o* War to Race
Sir Barton Oct. 12
On Canadian Track
13ALT.MQRE, Sept. 24.?Man o'
j " War, the champion three-year
old, and Sir Barton, the premier
four-year-old, will race for a parse
of 575.000 and a cap valued at
$5,000 at the Kenilworth Park track
! at Windsor, Canada, October 12,
Details of the match were completed
this evening. The race will be at a
mile and a quarter and Man o' War
will carry 120 pounds to Sir Bar?
ton's 126.
Exterminator was to have been

why this event is to be played ail over
again, when the ?ingles had already
reached the final round last June, with
Miss Marie Wagner and Miss Margaret
Grove, both club members, as the final?
Tn anawiT to the inquisitive, I can
only say that, owing to one of the most
unfortunate mix-ups and instances of
bad sportsmanship that ever marred a
tournament in this country, the final?
ists could not reach an agreement as
to when the final was to be played, and
so it was indefinitely postponed, neither
the referee nor the club making any
decisive ruling in the matter.
The matter was eventually brtvught
to the attention of President Myrick, j
who ordered that the tournament be j
entirely replayed and the singles en
tries redrawn. He added that Mis?!
Wagner, without her knowledge, had
been arbitrarily; placed in such a posi?
tion in the draw as to practically insure
her reaching the final round last June.
The whole thing is a rather demor?
alizing anti-climax to an honored tour?
nament that under Other club auspices
had been conducted without a breath of
suspicion. It is well that Mr. Myrick hau
taken official action .in the matter, for
such things should not be allowed to
pass unchallenged in tennis, whose fair
name is'at ?stake, but there is not like?
ly to be much interest in the replaying
of the event, under the circumstances.
The chances are all in favor of Miss
Wagner winning the championship, for
she has shown her superiority to any
other player in the field, but, no matter
who wins, the triumph and tlje cham?
pionship cup will be tarnished.
