Says Wards Are Backing Weeghman Six Day Bicycle Race Starts A. A. U, Accepts New Records 10 EBBETS SEES END OF BASEBALL WRANGLE Sn.vs Vwli'rol Park in Brooklyn Mny House International f League Clul). DODGKHS AltE NOT FOlt SALE Charles Wceshmnn's negotiation tor the purchaso of the ChlcnKo Cubs have a far Kre.itcr bearing on prospective base tail pence In 1915 than cither sldo has admitted. The transfer of Chailcs 1', Taft'a National Lcaguo stock to the Windy City rcstnur.vtcur Is expected to remove the opposition of tho Ward brothers of Ilrooklyn. - yell a, that ' popular revolutionary leader. The Wards, kccordltiB to tho statements of n promt nent major league clul. owner who has been In touch with August "wrmniin. nre likely to furnish Weeghman with the capital necessary to swing tho transaction. In return certain concessions w 11 be gramcd which will make the Washington I'ark Plant In llrookln nvallnble for or canned baseball operations. Hy backing Weeghman the "d brothers will of course be directly In terested In major leaKue ball as repre sented by tho Cubs. In organized base ball they may have further Interest as promoters of Class AA ball at Washing ton Tark. The International League has not given up hope of transferring tho Jcrscv Cltv franchise to Hrooklyn. This will be done If William Pevery can be prevailed upon to set a reasonable, price on the Skccters. It Is hinted that livery lust now Is tho thorn In the side of forth the American and International leagues. He owns the Jersey City club and controls 42 per cent, of tho New York American league Club stock. In his dual capacity as major and minor lcaguo promoter he Is said to have blocked several Important moVes toward the elimination of the out laws. Tho powers of the game, however, are hopeful that his estimate of the value of his holding In the two leagues may shrink sulliclently to produce a purchaser. Charles It. Kbbets, owner of the Hrook lyn Nationals, has Just returned from the big minor lenguo rally at Omaha. On his way homo tho Squire of Flatbush spent & day In Chicago, where he familiarized himself with the latest nnules of Wccgh roan's negotiations for tho Cubs "I have every reason to believe that Mr. Wecghmnn will succeed In acquiring Mr. Taft's stock." ?nld he. "August Herrmann, while acting only In the capacity of an Individual, has been authorized by Charles P. Taft to negotiate tho sale. I understand that a price has hcen agreed upon by the contracting parties. There Is every likelihood that n transfer of Interest will bo mado nt a conference which has been arranged for Cincinnati December I. "Charles Wceghman Is acceptable to the National League club owners and to (those of tho American League as well. It Is true that neither Gov. Tener nor Itan Johnson has taken any part In the ne gotiations and that Herrmann Is acting only In the capacity of a business repre sentative. Hut It Is equally true that If Weeghman were objcctlonablo to organ ized baseball no proposition of his would bo entertained. "By the sale of the Cubs to Weeghman. who Is very popular In his home city, the Nntlonnl League could remedy a weak ness that has been felt for several years tho unpopularity of ownership of tho Chicago club. I believe this remedy is certain of success." Mr. Ebbeta declares that the National League has not sought Wecidiman as a possible means of retrenchment. "The Federal League has made every overture," said the Hrooklyn solon. "Pres ident James A. Gllmore's assertions that neither Weeghman nor any of his col leagues will ileal with organized baseball unless the Independents are accepted as i major league are too absurd to call for discussion. C.lltnore Is talking for a good Job. He has been elected to the presi dency for a term of five yeats at $15,000 a. year. "I do not believe tho major leagues enro rap how the rank and tile of the Fed eral League behaves," he continued. "It Is enough for them that tho minor leacues have decided unanimously to stick with the big organization. "The siiggehtlon of the American League to limit club rosters to twenty men will no doubt meet with favor In our circuit. It would counteract the present tendencies toward bankruptcy from ex travagant salaries and furnish regular employment for players who now adorn the benches." Ebbets will devote his Immediate future to the discovery of tho culprit who started the rumor that his Hrooklyn National League club was for sale. "I would not take i 1,000,000 for my Interest In the club." said Charles, "and I wouldn't consent to n sale for J3.000.000 If I owned the entire stgek. I valuo the real estate, plant, franchise, players and equipment at $2,000.000 ; the good will and future at more than $1,000,000 addi tional. I have apnt all my life In or ganized baseball and hope to die In har nesj. There Is no other business with which I am familiar. Tho Hrooklyn club la not for sale" DATES FOR FORDHAM'S FIVE. littnn Schedule ArrnnKrd for Mnronn Tlnskrtbnll Team, Manager James A.

ANHinno.v. "Hero blindness has no virtue" might well be the inscription on many a tee box In the United States, for If there Is n bad feature of tho average golf holo that stands out It Is this very quality of blindness, and by "blind" I mean a holo on which tho pin is not visible on the shot to the green. Now It might be well to discover If there is a basis for belief in blind holes. If they have a pe culiar virtue, If they nre really not as bad ns they are painted. For many years, In fact up to a short tlmo ngo, little wns heard from tho dev otees of golf about the goodness or tho badness of holes. The golfers were well content with any thing In tho shape of a hole which linn JOHN O. AXDEIISOX. distance, a putting green and a hole In the ground. There was even a certain kind of thrill which canto to n person after making a shot over n hill or a long brassle over n cross bunker which hid the pin, for added to curiosity was the thought of the success In overcoming the extra burden Imposed by tho blind stroke. There was a greater feeling of exultation by far in clambering up n hill and then seeing the ball reposing on the green a few feet or Inches away from tho pin than In seeing It go there nil the way. Then came the day of the golf architect, who really was the representative of the opinion of the day that cross bunkers and ' blind holes were not the proper moans to the end. It was too big a Job to tackle loth of these evils, so called, at once, so they started In discarding tho cross bunk ers, and )n a few cases by so doing spoiled good holes. Hut In the long run their work told mightily and the pleased golfers began to talk about other phases which might be Improved. The architects, none In particular, for at one stage to be on the green committee was to be such, were more or less stumped liocause at all throe courses where golf had been played for many e.irs the holes could not be turned round, and the topography of the land would not admit of Its undergoing extensive changes unless at an expense which generally and rightfully was con sidered too great. For a number of years, therefore, say from. 1903 until 1910, the matter was per mitted to rest and wo were content when now holes which were constructed did not have these unpleasant features. Rut all the time the palpable Injustice of the thing was taking deeper root, and de spite the facts given about the foreign courses how at Sandwich' there wer many blind shots, that at St. Andrews theso weto not unknown, that at Hoy lake chance ruled at times tho sum of it all was that the golfers, convinced that the blind hole, especially when presented many times, was detrimental to the best execution of the ehnt called for, demanded Its removal The insistence on this doctrine has been more exact slnco the high class architects, Charles II. M.ic.lon.ild. II. S. Colt. Donald Hoss and a fi w others, havo given us examples of courses where the blind hole does not llnd prominence. 1 think It Is a fairly well established fact that where you have a short hole, say from 125 to 133 yields or even longer, if the tee Is on an elevation It Is better to have the bottom of the pin In sight from the tee. Hut I venture to state that almost half of the short holes In the land are not fuhlonetl after this manner. When we get one, however, we find cxtremo pleas ure In playing It, and we count all such as being exceptionally good tests. For example, 1 need but mention the eleventh holo at Kkwnnok, the tenth hole at Hrookllne, the thirteenth hole at l"un woodle, the fifth at Fox Hills, the sixth nt Wykngyl, tho sixth nt the National links, tho eighteenth at Garden City, all gems, and several others which are well known. In contradistinction,, to these might be given numerous holes which are good but which are not popular. Take tho third hole at Haltusrol, for example. Tt Is a fine test of golf, but only after you know the course. I have long been a believer In the theory that the test of a hole should be tho first impression which It gives to the newcomer. This is usually the test which applies to the course, and the links Is mado up of the sum of Its parts. So that if we have a blind hole which to the learned player Is first class, but to the stranger is full of lurking dangers, there Is something wrong with the hole. This Is rot radical by any mentis , It Is the thought In the minds of most nf tin; the standard which was set up through past false ideas cannot be changed In a mo ment or a year. Vhere are too many physical limitations. Now It may be argued that It may be MAIfHATTAN CHESS CLUB WINS. Heels tlrnnlilyn IllvnU In First Tlimnd by 10 to r. Score. With teams, sixteen players, Including most of the experts In the Metropolis, the Manhattan and Hrooklyn Chess clubs, con tested the first round of their series of homo and home matches at the rooms of the Manhattan Chess Club Saturday night. Play lasted until nearly 2 o'clock yesterday morning, when with one gnmn unfinished the score stood In favor of the Manhattan Chess Club by ten games to five. The unfinished game stands slightly In favor of nrooklyn. The two club champions, A. Kupchlk and It. T. Black clashed at the first table and the former achieved a notable victory.

Should Be Possible to See at Which Approach Be Played. manifestly unfair to Judge of a eouree'a valuo from one visit. Hut I would re mind you that It takes only one visit to Myopia, to the Detroit Country' Club, to the Nntlonal golf links, to Garden City or to Kkwnnok to provo the quality of the course, and so far as tho courses have got away from blindness so much tho greater has been, tho praise bestowed upon them. There aro good holes on which the pin cannot be seen from the tee, as In the case of splendid dogleg holes, but tho thought In mind Is that alt shots to tho green ought to be mado with the pin at least visible. A blind hole Is a golfing Irritant. Prosont day attitudes would ecm to In dlcato that lis soon an possible It will have to go. It will not be required tliat the ontlro fairway to the holes will have to bo Been from tho tee, but rather that on all nppro.wh shot Jie pin be visible. There can bo few objections to this theory. It In built on the proper foundations, for In n blind shot the golfer Is forced to Include In his calculations certain compasslike points which ought not to go with tho stroke. While dealing lightly with the sub ject of course architecture because 1 do not feel nn authority at all on the ub Ject. but can present only the player's at tltndo and his feelings I might add a word or two about bunkering lick of the hole. We must begin with the old question ns to what should be the t-tand-nrd. If C0.000 golfers think UU thero should be no regular defined trap imme diately back of the holo and ten archi tects believe thnt thero should, who Is right? , m . The demand for difficult and long courses fttrongly trapped nd undu latlngly greened his come from tho better golfers n-s a rule, and they have educated the others. To my mind tho colfera who play a good game. thnX Is those with handicaps ringing on par from scratch to twelve I hope the others will pardon me for seeming rude ness aro the ones who should, and to a large extent do. determine tho con (miction of a course. In tb'Ji Instance I am reminded of a meeting which took place nt tho Hruo Burn Country Club Just pr"paratory o the Improvements which have sinco been made. All the members were Invited to attend and the dlscuselon took place, be ginning with the tlrst hole F.vcry word that was uttered that evening was taken down by a stenographer, and thus tho green oommlfltee had the viewpoints from every angle. Hut the interesting part of it all was that nearly nil suggestions were from golfers whose handicaps were from scratch up to twelve. The others did not care to Join In. Which brings me back to my svrchl- nrnl tnrlr Mil chested a moment ago. Should there be bunkers back of the, greens? Naturally. It all depends upon the hole. Hut I am speaking now for a, multitude of golfers who feel that the back of the hole trapping Is being over-, done. And these are the reasons given; for their convictions: j In the first place, one of our most cher ished maxims In golf is, "Be sure to be, up." On the putting green mis u. -, come a cardinal point, and too much or a cardinal sin a well In Its relation to many a golfer. Tho man who I- "pawky. who finds firmness In his shots lacking,) never gets to the top. Somehow or other wc arc afraid of the hole. This feeling of running over, of going iwyona. is intensi fied when we have a shot which calls for 185 yards with a carry of 165 and a keen green to encounter. Oftentimes It Is prac tically Impossible to havo the ball stop anywhere near the. hole, and when there is i trap beyond there Is the dickens to pay. 1 have seen many tlno shot hurt Immeasurably because of the nearness of a back bunker which, in the tlrst place, was too much nf a mental hazard beforo tho shot was played, and secondly, be cause tho keenness of the ground sur rounding the green did not permit of a. stoppage. Long grass hack of the hole ought preferably to be tho trouble, and It should not l ho very long at that. Two or three Inches at most ought to nuftlc. Ux)d golfers generally believe that ft is unwise to have such traps when the shot up to the green Is one which calls for a brawdo or cleek or its substitute, and I think that they aro right. These remarks do not apply to alt courses tho large clubs naturally have members with snlendld knowledge in these nfTuirs and put It to good use but it does fit hundreds of small clubs which would do well to think twice and carefully be fore making Improvements. After n long stretch of years we now havo arrived at certain definite conclusions In regard to I the aiohltecturo of courses, little and big, , and this knowledge is freely given If the I members of the green committees will but 1 ask for It from the heads of the State associations, or In lieu of this from thej green committees of the larger clubs. Tho' spirit of cooperation Is strong among' golfers'. i BAKER TO BE COMMODORE. Owner of Viking to Ilenrt 7f ew York Yacht Club. Oeorgo F.

YALE TEAM'S ATTACK STRONG AS HARVARD Against Frinceton, That Is, and the Eli Defence Not So Good. CIUMSON TACKLING BETTER Against Trlnceton Tale had nn offence fully as strong 'as llnrvard's and a defence not so good. Yale mado threo touchdowns against the Tigers, which were one moro than Harvard made. There la ti fundamental in which Yalo Isn't doing as cloan work an Harvard, mid it is tack ling; and In several fundamentals of defence as well as In having more men who do their work consistently anil In 11 finished way -this applies to tho line, not tho backs Harvard Is ahead of tho Hlue. However, a team with tho spirit on offenco 'and the capacity for executing kaleidoscopic manoeuvres, such aa Yalo was last .Saturday, Is a hard one to guess, one of tho kind of which there is no telling what it will do. The souring possibilities of both Harvard and Ynto make next (Saturday's game a still choicer morsel. Hy tho same token the varie gated Yale gamo on tho one side and tho deceptlvV-'nuss and precision of the Har vard operations behind the line when tho ball Is put In play will call for quick diagnosis by the defendeis; and we shall see which better has studied out how to take care of tho other. Legore's tine punting against Prince, ton showed Ynlo to bo strong In that de partment of kicking, but' the Yale full back didn't display anything like tho skill at .drop kicking of Mnhan or the skill nt goal kicking of Hardwlck. He may do better with his drop kicks If he stands further back. He wa.4 about eight ynrds away at Princeton, nnd an expert who saw him said he wan too close. Driggs of Princeton stood far back for his punts. He nppeared to bo quite twelve yards behind his line, nnd ap parently It was the Princeton plan to have him that far back to Insuro no blocking, to let his distance back take care of that, nnd thus allow the wlinlo line to get down. That decreased tho chances of a run back, chances which always threatened because of tho admir able handling of punts by the Yale back field. Tho game was characterized by profi cient catching of punts, both side doing It, Yale to a greater decree than Prince ton, but loth contributing to handling of kicks, which was In mared contrast to the grounding of punts which took plaoo In the Harvard -Prince ton clash. The Judg ment of the Yale men who weie back there for fly balls was like that of a baseball player, and tho versatile L gore's diamond expertnes.s also was seen In his throwing. There was a baseball touch to his way of whipping the forward pass. The analogy will serve, though of course naseh.mll ac curacy cannot be attained with the well known prolate spheroid. I.egore drew a tine finish on one of his two attempts to purposely thruw a forward pnsn across the side line. On the other he hadn't tho hame accuracy and threw over tho goal Una Instead of the side line. That gave Princeton a touchlwick lr.stead of com pelling her to put the ball In play on the f yard line. The Yale-Princeton game was one that will holp to popularize football, popularlzo It per so tut distinguished fr in such at traction it ha ns a merely college specta cle. Wo speak purely In revard to the eye tilling. The wonh-whlleness of the game, objections to or points in faor of, us to its basic nature is another matter. The open, swirling, all sorts of football by Yale, with team play opened out so that indi viduals stood out In clear relief, took on the nature of a departure, a breaking away from the conventional whl h tickled the onlooker, whatever likely to live merits It may have as tactics to win gamts Such football suggests imre fun and lees drudg ery. Added wiut Princeton's heroic biace, as fine an effort to turn defeat into victory as the uino has had nnd none tho less heroic because unsuccessful. Combined tho developments made the game ns classlo a a spectacle. The score will be easy to remember 1314, K 14. Yale isn't the only team which has resurrected lateral passing this year, and the present season marks an tpoeh by reason of the elaborations which havo been developed In connection with tho Hughy device. Tho pass itself didn't bother Princeton greatly. The Tiger play ers often covered the passer and the leclp lent, but they couldn't guard against everything. The pass strung out the de fence. It provided a wider Held of opera-1 tlon for getting the ball to the last man on the offensive team's sale of the scrim mage line, and It created gaps Into which tho man with the ball, sometimes to the passer's right, sometimes to his left, might turn. Tho times Yale failed to gam were made up for by the gains of length which wcro made. "We have learned one thing," enld ( a former Ynlo player yesterday, "and that Is It's good policy when playing Pilnceton or Harvard to make all tho points you can while you're making them " This was apropos of the bit scare Princeton gave In the last quarter. Here was a yoir for Princeton in which the playing of the last peiiod brought more touchdowns against Yale than the live previous years combined. They weren't made by the watching and waiting policy, seizure of opportunity policy, which has won Bevornl times for Princeton, but by fierce, nggresslve, do It yourself playing. We haven't seen such sustained rushing by Princeton against Yale since Hill Church's day, eighteen years ngo. Hut It didn't win. ntid on that scoie arises the question which always arises when a team that has been outplayed nnd la far behind mnkes a rally: What difference would It have made, if any, had the jwlnt produc ing tactics been mado use of earlier? Harvard' 0 to 0 tio with Ilrown didn't tell much about the Harvard team, slnco most of the varsity nrray was at Prince ton. As a hint of what tho Harvard vnr slty can do It amounted to nothing. It did fchow that It takes more than Har vard subs io beat Brown. Tho plan saved the vnrslty men. and the happenings of lust Saturday took a good deal moro out of Yale, n week beforo tho finale, than the Hrown game took out of Harvard. Whether the Princeton tussle took more out of Yale physically than It put In foot balllcally the end of the week will tfll. Tho brace l'enn will havo to make to beat Cornell gets bigger and bigger. The Dartmouth team, which has grown better nnd better slnco meeting Princeton and which probably would like to play the Princeton game over again, far outclassed Penn, while Cornell ewatted Penn's con queror, Michigan. Tho Ithncans too havo been gathering strength since a couple of early season setbacks nnd are one of the heaviest scoring elevens Cornell line. had. The hitter's IS points ngalnst Michigan were the largist total but one ever In Hided on the Wolverines. Penn made JIS points In 1 DOR. Failure to hick two goal? cost the Cornclll.ni.i their oppottimlty to break a record nt Michigan's expense. Incldentnllv, this Is the tlrst time Yost has Inst three games tn one season at Michigan. Spectators nt the a'oidham-Vormont contest, ns frequently Is the case nt n football game, came away without know llig what really had happened, Thoy thought Wymard of Fnrdhitm h.id failed tn cimett a touchdown and boat It from the Held believing I'oidhain had lost, 7 to fi, Itefeiee Kitivihurg explained, how ever, thnt the kick was a goal. Wymard whs tllstrrsveil until he learned the truth, for he hadn't uiltscd a goal from touch down all season. URGES EARLY HANDICAP LISTS, I". , G, A. Aaka Clnba tn Make Re ports) lr December IB.

BICYCLE RIDERS OFF ON WEEK LONG GRIND Eighteen Teams Rtnrt Shortly After Midnight nt Shot Fired hy Rudolph. GERMAN TEAMS ARSENT Eighteen teams made up of bicycle riders from all corners of the globo etarted this morning nt a few minutes past midnight In tho twenty-second nnnual International six day bicycle rnco In Madison Hqutire Garden. The rac tvhlch began this morning Is the sixteenth team race, the lx contests prior to thnt being Individual affairs, which were finally stopped by State legislation. Tho countries represented In the long grind which will have no lot up until 10 o'clock next Saurday night nre America, Aus tralia, France, Helglum, Italy, Tasmania, Ireland. Switzerland. Sedon. Poland, Denmark and Ilussla. It will be noticed that Germany Is conspicuous by Its ab sence because, the best of the German rldera are nt tho front fighting for the Kaiser. The absence of the Germans makes tho fans feel that thero will bo less chance of the Allies forming com binations. Dick Hudolph of The Hronx, who was tho prlmo factor in carylng the Iloston Hraves to victory In the Nntlonal league pennant race and toppisl his good work by spiking Connie Mack's guns In the world's eerlen last month, fired the shot which started tho race. Hudolph hns been a six clay race fan for a number of yeare, but he has more Interest In the prc.ent con test thnn In any of the other, for he Is a patriotic Hronxlto and his borough Is represented by a team made up of Harry Kaiser and George Cameron. Kaiser was nn amateur up to the time that ho started In the long grind this morning, nnd al though he has had no experience In the elx day race there aro many who think thnt his great speed and track general ship will keep him up In the front. The race, which will be managed this year by Floyd MacFarland, .1 former rider, has many features in more for the fans. The principal one of theso Is the trying of the Kuropean finish. In former years tho placie of the men tied at tho end of the six day grind has been decided by a one mile sprint, but the foreign riders complained about this style of Ilntsh nnd asked for the Ihiropcan method. Instead of riding .1 mile sprint at the finish, points will be scored among the riders on even terms elurlng the last hour. At tho end of every fifteen laps, .1 distance of a mile and a hnlf, the leader will get one point, the second two and so on up, so that the team with tho lowest number of points at the tinlsh will be de clared the winner. This system w,is first tried out at Her lln last March and proved to be very successful, for It minimized the chnnci-s if vailous tennis forming combinations. gao the veaker teams a better chance and made the finish of the nice more In teresting for the spectators. This method was usi?d in the recent modified six day event In Huston, which was won by Al fled Uollllet. Another Innovation Is the offering of cash prizes by the management for pilnt each afternoon and evening. Theie wdl be u total of $2,l0ft given to the riders, divide d up In purses of from t2l to 2uo Many of the old t.mi rs who were tlx tmcs 111 th" rice are not In th' lineup tnl year, but they have been replaced by youngsters who ge great promise. One of the. ohlest riders In the event Is Hobby Wnlthour of Atlanta, who has been riding In the grind every year since 1902. The newest to six day racing aro Harry Kaiser, Willie llanley of San Francisco and Gus Wnhlrab of Jersey City. All of theso boys nre competing In the long ride for tho first time. Some; of the foreigners never have been seen at the Garden, but have had plenty of experience In the Kuropean six day events. Followers of the sport have had a hard time picking a favorite for the event, for the field is cNenly balanced, Kddle Ite-ot and Jackie Clarke, the American-Australian combination, looks like n formid able pair, for they aro good sprinters us well as seasoned plugers. Harrlng accl ilent they should nirely be up In tho fiont. Another pair that looks equally us strong is the Australasian team of Alfied Ooul let and Alfred Grenda. whllo Joe Fogler and Freeldle Hill will prove a hard com bination to beat. It Is barely possible that some of tho foreign teams, especially the Ifillan-SWIss pair of Francesco Verrl nnd Occar Egg. may spring a surprise. The teams which stnrted this morning: Kddle Hoot.
