RUTGERS RANKED FOURTH jfovy and West Virginia Fol low Only One Xew Sec tional Champion. nr n.txtRt. Football success seems to be heredi tary. Though practically every college thin year loat Its leading players through their entry Into national aervlce, six of the teren sectional champions of 1916 re tained their titles and moat of the varsi ties which had established reputations for gridiron efficiency again sent pawer ful elevens Into the arena. Of course, the bit: exceptions -were Harvard, Yale nd Trlnceton. but at least one of these. Harvard, would have met with consider able success had It seen fit to go through with Its Intercollegiate schedule. For the first time In many years It Is pssslbla to name a national champion, niare can be no doubt about the su premacy of the Golden Tornado from the Georgia School of Technology. Nat urally the championship of the South roes to the Atlanta Engineers, too. I-a.t year Washington and Lee, which held Georgia Tech to a scoreless tie. entered a half claim to the championship of Dixie, but Tech generally was recognised as the leader. In the East the season of 1917 again saw Pittsburg win the championship which It had won so brilliantly the year Before. In the middle West Ohio State retained the supremacy for a second year, and In the Missouri Valley Ne braska again came to the fore. In the Southwest Texas Agricultural held on to the title for anothea year. The only ectlonal championship which found a new owner was that of the Pacific Coast. Tkls year Washington State took the title, while In ISM the University of Oregon and the University of Washing ton, which played a scoreless tie, shared the top honors. When It came to selecting r. coast rep resentative .to meet Pennsylvania at Pas lens, the Oregon eleven got the call. Itcrth Oregon and Gil Doble's old team ihia sear had to bow to Washington State, which was coached by Lone Star Diets, the old Carlisle Indian. In the Rocky Mountain section the University of Denver again was the leading eleven. The Utah Aggies tied Denver for the Mountain Conference championship, but the former, with aeven victories and no defeats, is re garded as the stronger team. The Utah Aggies won four games and tied one. Georgia. Tech's Title Clear. It seems almost a paradox that this ear should have made possible the nam ing of the first national champion In years with anything 'like a clear title to the honor. In the olden days the winner t( the Harvard-Tale-Prlnceaon series generally was recognised as the strong est eleven In the country. In recent sea ons other teams like Pittsburg. Colgate ami nrown have risen to top heights In the Hast, the Pacific coast has proved its eight to consideration, the middle West has eliown ability to cope with the best In this section, and the South, under Eastern coaching, also has joined the merry throng. Football now is a truly national came and football strength gradually Is being distributed more or less evenly through out America. As far as the Pacific roast was concerned, the Kast awoke to that realisation when Oregon whipped Pennsylvania ' last season and was forced to even a ruder awakening with regard to the South this year by Geor gia Teeh'a overwhelming success over .Pennsylvania and Us later triumphs. With Georgia Tech first In America nttshurj must be ranked second and Ohio State thtrd. We are Inclined to the belief that Pennsylvania, rated sec end best in the Kast, was fourth best in the national ranking. Whether Syra cuse and Rutgers were any better than Washington State for fifth place is a question too complex to tackle. Michi gan, Nebraska and Notre Dame are next In order. Pitt a Great Eleven. Pittsburg's right to the Eastern cham pionship is even more clearly defined than Georgia Teeh'a national supremacy. Pittsburg, under Glenn Warner tor a third year, disposed of practically every rival for the title and for the third sue cselve season went through undefeated. Pitt won from West Virginia by 1 to J, from Syracuse by 28 to 0, from Penn sylvania by 14 to 6, and from Wash ington and Jefferson by IS to 10. It was a powerful, 'well balanced eleven and once more proved the coaching wlx ardry of Warner. 'TIs true that Warner more than any other coach was favored by the return of such players as Seis, Sutherland, McLaren, McCarter, Coug ar. Carlson, Easterday and SeldeL It was almost a foregone conclusion that Pitt once more would emerge with the title. Pennsylvania Is worthy of second (lace in the Eastern ranking not so much because of It victories as Its brilliant stand in defeat. The game Penn put up against Pittsburg demon atrated the fighting qualities of Bob Fol well's aggregation. Its later victories over Dartmouth, until then unbeaten, nd Michigan, similarly successful until It went to Philadelphia, clinched Fenn'a right to the runner up place. Mighty close to Pennsylvania for the third and fourth positions come Syra cuse and Rutgers. The work cf Rutscrs late in the season, especially against the Newport Naval Reserves, stamped Fos ter Sanford'a team as one of the greatest In the country. Rutgers might have been awarded third place but for Its de bit by Syracuse, 14 to 10, In Its third game of the season. Tills score Disregarded. Syracuse get third place by a clear margin not only because It won from nuigers. After Buffering a serious set' tck from Pitt Syracuse went about the fork of rehabilitation In rather vigorous and convincing style. Rally I nc with urprialng vigor from the Pitt defeat Syracuse gave Its first demonstration of great power by snowing under Tufts, II to 0. Later Tufts, stopped Dartmouth, I to o. Then Syracuse defeated Brown, conqueror of Colgate, and added Colgate, the Michigan Aggies and Nebraska. Behind Rutgers, In fifth place, comes the Navy. Here we And the Unit real opening for debate since West Virginia, which defeated the Midshipmen by J to Is placed sixth. We regard the record of the Navy as better than Watt Vlit ilnla's. in the first place the Navy de bated Davidson by 27 to 0, and David on Uter held Oeorgla Tech to II to 10 J nd won from Auburn, The Navy de f'ated Georgetown by ,21 to 1, and any tarn which could turn a trick like that belonged among the top notcher.

West Virginia held Rutgers to a tie at 7 to 7, played a great came with Pitt and defeated Washington and Jefferron by 7 to 0. Army Last of First Ten. Washington and Jefferson brlruiKS In seventh place, thoufrh sonic who saw the great battle Sol MetsiKer'n eleven put up against Pitt tell us that he had an eleven that could have defeated Penmiylvania. Brown, which beat Colgate when that team looked like a formidable rival of Pitt, and also disposed of Boston College and Dartmouth, stands eighth, with Col gate following and the Army completing the list of the first ten. The Army undoubtedly would havo earned a far higher place had It had the time for practice. Tho cadets were greatly handicapped and, as rhown In the defeat by Notre Dame, were crude. The material was there. Even with the lack of; time ifor preparation the Army would have finished among the first six had It had the services of Vandegraaf, the All Southern tacklo from Alabama, and McQuarries through the ncason. The second ten Is headed by Dart mouth. The brightest chapter in the Green's story of n season completed un der the stress and handicaps of war was that written in the game with West Vir ginia. After that "Cute" Spcars's men fell boforo Pcnn, Tuftl and Brown. It Is because of Its fine scrap against West Virginia, Pcnn and Penn State that Dartmouth merit the elecnth position. Next comes Georgetown, a veteran back field with a green line that showed somo mighty fine football, especially against Fordham and Lehigh. Lehigh Is Thirteenth. I.ehlgh, which started poorly but cot going great guns toward the end of the season, deserves tho thirteenth place, with Penn State, which It defeated by 'J to 0, in the next position. Right here we might have Inserted West Virginia Wcs leyan, a team composed' of Calac, the old Carlisle Indian, and others. However, the Wesleyans wero more or less a local, comPtnation, ana we aeciuea io give them no rating liere. They were beaten by Penn (State and Washington and Jef ferson, but defeated West Virginia for the State championship. Boston College was the fifteenth strongest eleven In the ISast. Under the tutelage of Charley Brlckley Boston made a splendid fecord, beating Tufts 20 to 0, holding Brown to 7 to 2 and trouncing Holy Cross, 34 to 6. Fordham, which defeated Cornell by 27 to 6. Holy Cross by IS to 0. Norwich by CO to 0 and the Allentown Ambulance Corps by 19 to 7. was sixteenth, with Swarthmore following. Next comes Williams, an eleven on which Ben Boynton was two-thirds of the strength and which went through un defeated, though held to a scoreless tie by Westeyan. Tufts follows, and then we And Cornell. ' Fir Coraelf Defeats. Beaten by Penn. Williams. Colgate. Michigan and Fordham, the once proud Big Red team made the poorest showing any Cornell eleven ever made. In view of the fact this fall was dus to the war and that It saw fit to fight even under such a handicap Cornell deserves a world ,of credit. The third ten Is headed by Holy Cross, with Stevens, undefeated but tied by New York University, In twenty-second position. Then como N, Y, U Spring Held, Amherst, Wesleyan and Columbia. Arwe go Into the third ten we find that our basts for ranking most often Fi, 41 rem J. sretmer: Is a. comparison and cross comparison of scores. This method Is backed by opln- . Ion not only of our own but of coaches, offlrlals and others who have followed football closely In voMous sections of the East. To these we Klvc our sincere thanks. Because Colby, which lot to Brown by 19 to 7, was the only Maine eleven which played outside tho State wc could not rate any of the down East colleges. Trinity played only two college elevens held N. Y. U. to a scoreless tla and lost to the Yale "Informals," 7 to 0, so wc had very Uttlo basis for ranking there. MACY REACHES FINAL IN NOVICE TOURNEY Beats Hirsh at Straight Rail .

Gunners Shoot In the midst of a blizzard that swept down Long Island Sound the. gunners of the New York Athletic Club held their usual week end shoot over their Travers Island traps yesterday. The conditions were the most difficult of the season. Not only was it bitterly cold on tho fir ing line, but the snow was driven Into tho faces of the gunners by a strong northeast wind that made It exceedingly difficult to ?cc the tiny blue rocks. The conditions arc best illustrated by the fact that not a slnglo gunner had a straight string ot 2.1 targets and few had full r-cores with their handicaps. There was a tie In both tho race' for the high scratch and the high handicap prises. In the former Frank H. Stephenson, the Brooklyn gunner, who has boen doing excelltnt shooting this year, and former champion It. I.. Spotts racli broke SS out of a posslblo 100 targets.

Football sta tlstlcn collected by the athlctlo authori ties of the University of Pennsylvania show that with the exception of two men who were rejected for defective eyesight every member of the 1916 team' and the first nine substitutes are In the national war service. "The records made by Pennsylvania football men," said M, J. Pickering, the graduate manager, "show conclusively, in our opinion, that Pennsylvania's stand In maintaining football and other sports has stimulated enlistment rather than retarded It. Not only that, but It has been of the greatest benefit to the stu dents who have remained. In addition to the almost unanimous enlistment ot our athletes In football, track, rowing, baseball, Ac, our student body has given approximately 2,000 undergraduates to the war service."

The tia.ss of thoroughbreds which competed at tho Jefferson Parish track this afternoon was much better than any since the meeting began,. Two handicap", the Sheriff Marrero at six furlongs and the Iceland at ono mile and .1 sixteenth, attracted small but rather select tlelds. Kach resulted in a stirring contest. The Dixieland was for all ages and went to M. C. Moore's five-year-old I brown gelding Marlon Goosby. He carried top weight with 120 pounds and was ridden by W. Keisay. The little1 jockey held him oft tho early pace and reserved his speed for the final drive. In the stretch he gave Marlon Goosby his head and the gelding went to the front and won in clever fashion. Libyan Hands, which carried the silks of August Belmont two years ago, finished second and F, O. Goode's Warsaw was third. Tho surprise of the race was the fact that Iluens failed to cam any part of tho purse. H. Wattcrrou's old brown horf-e dlil not run his raco and was beaten off. The Sheriff Marrero Handicap also wa-s an nil ago affair. It was won by C. K. Holland's three-year-old gelding Assume. Frankle Uoblnson sent hjni kay frim the harrier on his toe; n4 held him in a commanding position throughout, At the end he was an easy victor, with W, C Capps's Murphy second and W.

Jimmy Henlgan of the Dorchester Club, who won the na tional senior A. A. 1. cross-country championship two weeks ago, was the winner to-day of tho New England A. A. U. ten mile championship road race, held under the auspices of St, Philip's A. A. It Is his second successive vic tory In this race. Tiie race had the nppearatice of being moic of a Dorches ter Club run. for the eight starters in it wero members of that club. It was a foregone conclunon before the race started that Ilcnlgan would be the win ner. Ilia ttma was 1 hour 4 1-5 .sec onds. At tho end of three miles Ilentgan was about forty yards ahead of Tuo mlkcsltl. who n little inter was passed by Fred Kaller, mho finished In sec ond pi ire sixty ynnls behind Ilentgan, When the race started shortly after ?. o'clock (i cold northeast wind was lilowlnp. The dlstanco was at least half n mile longer than ten mile?. The runners kept well bundled, with Tuo mlkosltl In front most of the way. Ilen tgan passed Tuomikoskl about two miles from home and was never headed during the rest of the race. Cliff Home, who won the title In 191 J. 1914 and lillu, was nearly a minute behind the third innn.

Al though the strangle hold Is the only lock barred by the tournament rules, many of the competitors object to the "Strangler'a" head lock as more severe than the throat hold. Bather than disarrange the pro gramme, Lewis waived his rights and went on with the head lock barred. It was a vicious combat. George Bothner warning the Finn to keep his fingers out of Lewis's eyes. The Finn then look the strangle on !wls and the refereo was compelled to tear loose his clutch. After considerable rough work by both sides Lewis put the Finn on his knees with a neck hold nnd0trlp and pinned hfm to the mat with a half nelson ami crotch' In 15;.H. The Finn's defeat pleased the spectators. Harold Christiansen found that Karl Pospisii, the giant llmarlnn, was a dif ficult proposition nnd n draw was the best he could do. Christiansen Is con ceded to be quite an clever nnd scientific as any man In the tourney, hut he lacks weight, scaling at 190 pounds to 210 by Pospisii. The Swede clamped some flue locks on Pospisii, hut larked the power to, force his man tn a fall. In the mat ter of defence Christiansen Is a second Bothner. Kbyszko had a haid tussle with Hjal mar Johnran. but finally subdued him with u double leg hold In 25:30. Ivan Llnow, the CoRsack, threw Carl Bush so hard that the lalter's right arm was severely wrenched nnd lie was compelled to quit. John Frcberg of Chicago and Cyclone Burns of Boston, two well matched ath letes, engaged in a spirited contest full of ground and lofty tumbling. Each was in danger rt number, of times from dangerous seizors and toe holds, hut neither could pin the shoulders of his opponent. The bout lasted the limit of twenty minutes. The first hearty laugii of the night was due to the nntlci of Carl VogeJ. Saxonlan, and Tommy Draal; of Hol land. In grotesque actions Vogel fs a close rival of Suln Hevonpaj. and Draak met him more than half way. They wrestled all over the stage, knocking down the scenery and causing an up roar. They kicked and cuffed each other according to go as you please, rules, and Iteferee Boche had a busy time. Draak finally dumped Vogel with a cross but tock and pinned him with a head lock and armhold In S :4S.

In tbe fourth round Tlay landed an uppercut that knocked n tooth out of Dundee's mouth. Bay took the two Inst periods by beating his opponent to the punch repeatedly as the battle pro gressed.
