It u yesterday swept away when close

Bun's new home, at Chambers street and
'Broidway, watching with feverish In

ef the defeat of tne "White Sox by the
IMs In the opening gamo ofhe world's
The baseball fans, nearly all armed
trita umbrellas 'and baseball gossip,
vers lined up six deep on Chambers
street, on both sides, and stretched around
en Broadway. Even the walks about tho
Court House were Jammed with the ex
cited and voluble fans. The crowd be
jan to gather In the vicinity long before
tie time for the starting of the game In
Cincinnati, which was 3 o'clock, Eastern
time, each fan looking for a spot where
I could get tho best view of The Sun's
Urge and remarkably well constructed
score board, which sec forth each play ,
vlth a clearness and promptitude that'
could hardly bo excelled had the onlook
ers occupied seats In the front row at
the scene of the struggle.
Frank Lewis, tho chief operator of the
board, stood behind the big Bcreen which
Wis erected on the second floor of the,
Stewart Building. swd with a wand, on
the end of which was a golf ball, marked
tie course of each play with a fidelity
that brought cheers or groans from the
fins, according to their sympathies. All
llr. Lewis had to do In order to assure
a burst of applause was toHurn a wheel
or move his wand, which was connected
by wires to a system, of pulleys, and
show that some Cincinnati player naa
ione something meritorious. For It wns
a National League crowd that watched
the game with breathless Interest at tne
Etiwart Building. '
p- Splendid Police Itesnlatlons.
When fhe expert telegrapher, L. Ran-
hofer, handed his first bulletin to Lewis
and the balls and strikes began to ' be
shown on the board, even' the trucks,
automobiles and Mayor Hylan's buses
slowed.down In front of the board arid
had to be moved on by the trafllc police',
ho held the crowd In perfect order until
the fast White Sox was out In the ninth
frame. The work of tho police was
"But, say," said a tall cop with a face
lie Bob Fltzsimmons. "If tho sun had
ttta shining here fo-dny like it was in
Cincinnati, we would have had'our work
nt out for us. There would have been
M.OOO persons right on the Job."
Standing In the drizzling rain were an
classes, from the messenger boys carry-
bf "rush" messages to the business mini
h raincoat and expectations.
The crpwd watched the board closely
as the batting order went up and waited
for something to happen. This took
place In the first inning, when Jake Daut
Wrt, former Brooklyn favorite, singled
tad sent In the first run of the game.

The play by Innings also was flashed
to battleships In the harbor and by them
sent by wireless to other warships at
distant points, so that the news of the
nrst game between the Reds and Sox
girdled the earth.
In the cafes and hotels uptown there
was last evening a constant buzz of
comment on the game, and those who
had wagered oh the Sox showed a dis
position to hedge. Even money was
quoted on the result and the lied rooter
were eager to speculate on that basis.

Scalpers reaped a rich harvest selling
tickets for the opening contest, but an
hour before the game was called the
speculators slashed their prices and were
apparently anxious to dispose of their
tickets at face value. Box seats for three

three $5.50 seats for to-day's game.
Persons having seats to sell circulated
among the baseball crowds thronging the

crowds gathered.

Special Detpatch to Tan ScK,
Ithaca, Oct 1. After a long line
scrimmage on the upper field to-day,
during which Capt. Bhlverick essayed
a number of goals from the field, the
Cornell teams transferred their activi
ties to the stadium and the first eleven
gave a good exhibition of advancing the
ball, going from Its' forty yard lino
straight down the field for a score.
Cavlea, Olney and Bhlverick made
most of the gains, and Olney went Over
for the tally. Tho first team was
strengthened In the middle of the line
when Paul Miller, veteran guard of the
15 and '18 teams, played for the first
time and Pendleton, tho powerful guard
from the 1917 varsity, was moved up to
the first team from the scrubs. Two
other changes In the first team lineup
were noticed, Cunncen playing left end
and Baugher going In nt fullback. These
shifts, however, are not regarded as
final, but In accordance with the Rush
policy of giving every good man a
chance to show.
The varsity line material was
strengthened to-day by the arrival of
Swanson, who played a guard on the
1917 team.' Competition for players In
the rush line Is growing keener. The
field is open and not a man is sure of
his place. It Is recognised at the field
that Cornell's chances this year depend
largely on the success the coaches have

Cambridge. Mass., Oct, 1. Tho long
est scrimmage of the preliminary season
was held In the Stadium between the
Harvard varsity and the second team
td-day. following a long drill on plays
by Teams "A" and "B." Against the
scrubs Coach Fisher used practically all
of his varsity men. The outfit again did
a fine day's work on defence, -and
showed an offensive punch when. al
lowed to nstarfc - , ' -
At first the regulars opposed to the
scrubs were slow to get down to work,
but after the ball had been carried to
within three yards of the goal the first
string line held perfectly and there wns
no score. Later, attacks were stopped
short and finally, when the varsity
started rushing. It carried the ball the
length of the field. The rush stopped
when It. Horween' missed a field goal
shut from the thirty-yard line, but' the
varsity settled down to steady gains
agnln and Horween scored a touchdown.'
Paul Wlthlngton and Leo Lcary were
out ns coaches, the latter getting Into
the scrub lineup for a-time. The regu
lars started as they did yesterday, but
later Hubbard and Kane got In at
tackles, Wdods and Hadley being In'
tnese positions for Team "B" In the
earlier drill.
Halfback Burnham' was hurt again
to-day and was asiWed from the field.
His leg would not stand the strain of
hard work after more than a week's
absence. The varsity defence Is com
ing along well now, and the linemen
have mado a lot of Improvement since
the opening game.

To-night all Ohio Is delirious.
Just before play started each manager
Issued a statement Manager Moran of
the Cincinnati team said: "We have
clearly earned our way into the series
and we clearly will earn our way
through It. I believe thatwe have the
better pitching. In fact, I do not know
when a team over went lntoso great an
event with so strong a string o'f first
class hurlora.v I have six men on any
one of whom I can depend for excellent
ncrvlce. My pitcher for the opening
game will be Walter Ruether. The team
deserves the lion's share of the credit, for
It Is ft great ball club which fought Its
way through the season without a sign
of faltering. We aro going up against
a great ball club, but I think we will
hold our own."
Manager Qleason of the White Sox
gave voice to the following : "My boys nro
a great bunch and they are going to be
very hard to beat. The team battled Its
way through the American League with
such confidence and such absolute nerve
In all the pinches that I have the utmost
confidence hi each and every player. At
the same time I fully reallzo that we
are going to be submitted to a supreme
test In this series. I have known Pat
Moran for many years and he Is 'a tough
iron to beat. Also any club that could
stand ofT the Giants as the Reds did on
three different occasions Is going to bo
no easy mark fdr any club. But I bc
llevo that my pitchers have been under

Manager Moran announced that after
a conference wth Manager Qleason It
was decided that a ball batted into the
temporary left field bleachers would be
considered a homo run. The decision
shows that Moran is not fearful that
the White Sox have any longer drivers

that Groh, Roueli and Duncan are ns

decision but quickly subsided. Clcotte's
control was bad and ho put the fourth

rookie outfielder, came up to bat Roush
made a pretty steal of second with the

Duncan then launched the Reds oft on a
rally, letting a wide one go by. but driv
ing tho next to right centre for a clean ,
single. Cicotte postponed tho agony by!
mnking a tiazzllng stop of Kopf's torrid
snianh In time to throw to Risborg for a
forceout ot Duncan nt second. Rlsberg's
slow throw to Gandll failed to double up
Kopf. Larry raced to second when
Nealfl sent a floater' back of short which
Risberg knocked down but could not

On the first ball pitched Wingo wal
loped to .right centre for a long slnglo,
Kopf beating "Shano" Colllns's throw to

second on the whip. Ruether threw the
elands Into a delirium by booming a ter
rific htti over short that went roaring
Into tho crowd In left centre for three
bases, sending Nealo nnd Wingo across
tho plate. Dutch did not linger on third
for Rath kept up tho slaughter with a
clout over Weaver's head that permitted
RUcther to ncoro In a canter.
When Daubert followed Rath's slnglo
with a hot smash to right centre, scoring
Rath from second, Gleason jumped up,
beckoned Cicotte In from the box and
waved for young Wilkinson to go tb
tho rescue. With hanging head and
every movo showing his dejection Ci
cotte slowly walked off the field, the
more sportsmanly of tho fans expressing
their sympnthy for the fallen- Idol by
cheerB and handclaps. Tho ripple of ap
plause was drowned out In the general
roar of exultation. Cincinnati fans
smelted blood and their thumbs were
kdown. The exulting roar still boomed
across the field as Groh, first to face
Wilkinson, lifted to Felsch and ended the

hope . flickered In tho breasts of the
White Sox rooters, when Gandll led oft
In the fifth with a screaming single to
centre. Risberg started to bunt, changed
his mind nnd swung, lifting a fly to
Roush. On Schalk's hot grounder Groh
made one ot his famousfalllng lunges,
hurling himself on the ball and knock
ing It down. Heine bounded up, whirled
and pegged to Rath for a force out of
Gandll. Rath grabbed Wilkinson's
grounder near second, stepped on the
bag and forced Schalk.
Fifth Inning Second Halt The sun
bothered Felsch on Roush's high fly, but
bo managed to make the catch. Duncan,
who started the bombardment of Cicotte,
wns cheered as he came up and re
sponded with a slnglo past Risberg. The
Cincinnati hero died Mealing, however,
Schalk to Risberg. Risberg pulled oft
tho best Adding stunt of the game
when ho went over behind second base
and dug up Kopfs drive with one hand
and whirled around for a throw that

Sixth Inning First Half Roush
killed a lilt for J. Collins with a long
run nnd a fine catch In deep left centre.
E. Collins scratched a hit that bounded
off Ruether's glove, but he had to sprint
fast to beat Rath's quick recovery of the
ball.. Weaver dropped a Texas Leaguer
in back of Rath, E. Collins stopping at
second. Jackson agnln failed, hitting
tlio first ball down'to Daubert, who beat
him in a race for the bag. This play
advanced both runners, but Felsch was
unequal to the emergency and filed to
Nenle for the third out.
Sixth Inning Second Half Neale led
off with n single over second base.
Wingo struck out- Ruether kept his
batting average up to 1.000 with a line
single, to right field, Ncalo stopping at

Seventh Inning First Half Gandll

EUcr to warming up over In front of the
right field seats. Schalk was nn easy
victim for the third out. Groth to Dau
bert. Ruether pitched only five balls In
this inning.
Seventh Inning Second Half D;au
bert caught one on tho end of his bat
and hit It so far to right field that It
hopped Into tho crowd on tho first bound.
This was a ground rule triple and Dau
bert's third safe hit of the game. Groh
scored him with tho seventh Cincinnati
run on n hit that caromed oft Wilkin
son's glovo and passed Risberg. Roush
- buntd tnwnrd third for a sacrifice and
was safe on caver s bad throw. The
ball was knocked from Gandll's hands
as the runner- collided with him after
reaching the base, and Groh dashed to
third and slid In ahead of Gandll's re
turn throw. The Sox Infield moved in
and Risberg passed Duncan's grounder
to E. Collins, forcing Roush nt second
base, Groh scoring by beating Colllns's
fast return to the plate. Kopf hit Into
a double piny, Risberg to K. Collins to

made good with a single to centre. J.
Collins filed to Duncan. Roush ran over
Into right field and robbed E. Collins of
a hit. Weaver drove deep to Roush.
Kle'hth Inning Second Half Lowder
milk was the third pitcher to face the
Reds. Nealo greeted the tall right,
handor with a single to left, his third
hit of the game. Wingo sacrificed, Low
dermilk to Gandll. Ruether smashed to
the centre field fence for another triple,
which scored Neale. This brought the,
Cincinnati pitcher's hits up to three tor
a total of soven bases. Seldom has any
world's series pitcher done such batting.
Ruether remained on third base, as
Risberg threw out Rath and did not at
tempt to score even when Schalk chased
a wild pl(ch forty feet back of the plate.
Another wild shoot struck Daubert on
tho forhend and knocked h!mtiat. Tho
plajcrs rushed out from the Vlnclnnall
bench, but Jnko was uf Immediately nnd
said he had beou Btruck only a glancing
blow. Groh walked, filling the bases.
Roush forced Groh, E. Collins to Ris

Ninth Inning First Half Crushed
and cowed by the overwhelming scqro
against them, the White Sox players
strove to perk up under tho lashing ot
Kid Qleason and Eddie Collins, both of
whom moved rapidly among tho Chlca
goans snapping that the game wasn't
over till the last man was out. With the
mighty Jackson up Gleason begged Shoe
less Joe to start something. The best
tho IWhlto Sos eluscer could do. how
ever, was to lift an easy fly to Neale.
Felsch tried desperately to launch the
Sox olt In a belated rally, driving the
bHll far Into centre, but the greyhound
Roush raced back nnd made n glittering
corral. Roush'n grent catch took what,
ever little starch wns left In the White
Sox out of them. The other players
watched Oandll listlessly as Chick
grounded to Rath, who stooped up the
ball and with a toes to Daubert drove
the last nail In Cincinnati's opening triumph.

Special Detpatch to Tin Sex.
New Haven, Oct 1. Joe Neville, var
sity halfback on Cupid Black's 1918
championship team, who registered both
touchdowns made that year against
Princeton and Harvard, dislocated his
elbow to-day while making a tackle In
a scrimmage with the second vdrslty.
Neville will be out of the Blue lineup
for two weeks, and his place will be
taken by Aldrlch, who has Had no fresh
man or varsity experience. Aldrloh comes
from Fall River High School. Although
ho Is not the consistent straight line
plunger that Neville Is he shades the
veteran as a broken field runner.
To-day's workout began with defensive
work forthe Varsity. The first scrub
eleven was given the ball on the twenty
yard line, and by using repeated downs
It was able to score four touchdowns.
Galllard registered with a lino plunge
and Bault received a forward pass over
the line.
The other two scores came later when
the scrubs were given theball on the
three yard line. During this part of
the practice Don Welles intercepted a
forward pass and, eluding his tacklers,
headed down the field for a touchdown,
but was called back by Sharpe. The
defensive workout concluded with the
varsity holding the scrubs down on tho
former's five yard line.
Later the varsity lined up against the
second varsity, which was run by
Thome Murphy. Neville was hurt In
this" practice. The scrimmage was
scoreless. The varsity missed thrco
points when Uraden's drop kick missed
fire from the thirty yard line. Tho
scrubs upon receiving possession of the
ball tried open plays repeatedly. A
twenty-five yard pass was completed and
a twenty yard hurl over' the line barely
missed completion.
BrlnksKThorne, to whom Thome Mur
phy 'owes his first name, witnessed the
practice along "with Jacqttcs; fullback: on
the 1916 eleven.

and Fitzgerald of Notro Dame as re
serves. That Brlckley was premature In an
nouncing' the makeup of the Giants Is
evinced from tho fact that some of tho
men mentioned for positions deny hav
ing agreed to play. Alfred O. Gennert
of Princeton writes The Sun that ha
never has been approached by represen
tatives of the Giants and that ho unal.
ternbly Is opposed to professional foot
ball. Gennert says
(ennert's Statement.
"The use of my name In this connec
tion 'was wholly unwarranted and Inex
cusable. I have never been approached
on this subject by any representative ot
tho National Exhibition Company (the
Giants) or any other professional club,
I would not play football for money on
Sunday or any other afternoon. I h
llevo that any attempt to professionally
football Is a direct attack on the best
traditions of the game and (should be
resented by all loyal devotees."
Brlckley acknowledges a mistake was
made In the announcement that Gennert
would play for the Giants but says he
has verbal agreements with most of tho
others mentioned to play at the Polo
Grounds. The former Harvard hero
says that since the announcement of
the professional series he has been be
sieged with requests from gridiron celeb
rities for positions on the eleven Tl.o
first practice will bo held at the Pi l.i
Grounds on Saturday and the full eleven
It is, expected will rendezvous for a
workout on Sunday.
A Family- Affair.
Football Is getting to bo more th.n
ever a family affair. Down at Penn
sylvania both Lud and Alex Wray nnd
Heine, and Roy Miller are In a fratricidal
fight for positions on the Red and Bluo
eleven. Tho Horween brothers. Ralph
and Arnold of Harvard, the Welles ot
Yale', the two Redmonds of Rutg-rs and
tho Esqulrols of N. Y. U. are keepli'f.
the family names In print. Kveryon
knows that when Yale and Prlnceto,
lake tho field agalnt each other n . ,
month. Capt Tom Callahan of the Bull
dogs will have to face his brother M".'
on the Tigers.
Old, familiar gridiron names are creep
Ing up. At New Haven a nephew of
the famous "Pudge" Hoffelflnger Is try
ing for a position on tho Bluo. So are
tho nephews of the two famous Yale
ends, Tom Shevlin and Scanlon. Dart
mouth haa another Holcombe brother in
Its lineup. At Brown Crowther, n
brother of the all Amerlcnn back. Is In
football harness, and at Cornell Shuler,
a brother of the famous Cornell back
of 1913-14, Is prominent In gridiron do
ings. Princeton of course would not ba
content without a Poe In moleskins.
This season tho Princeton Poe Is a
nephew of the famous Johnny.
Yost In ITminl Porm,
"What iocs Yost think ot the eleven?"
was nsked a Michigan grad who re
cently returned from a trip to his alma

'Hurry Up' nt the helm."
Ilnyniuii Star nt Wllllnnia.
It Is doubtful If any college eleven
boasts a Btar of purer ray" serene than
Capt. Ben Boynton of Williams. There
Isn't a back on the gridiron who unites
so many desirable football qualities as
the Williams leader. Ben is hack In -all
his ancient glory this fall. Two years In
tho army have given the Texan added
weightand strength without affecting his
speed. It Is a treat to seo a player of
Boynton's calibre In action.
Zink, tho Amherst quarterback, Is an
