When Connie Mack Rlaneed ocr the
percentage columns yesterday mornlnp at
hi lintel In St. Ivuits. he must have ca
tiall.v noted the faL't that If his team won
from the Riowns, and the Tied So were
beaten onee In their afternoon's double
header, that he would clinch the cham
pinns'iln. This led to the selection of
Charles Albert Bender to put the final
crimp In the aspirations of the Fenway
Park dwellers bv defeating Hlckey's men.
Bender has always been effective
acalnst St. I-onl". Yesterday he wns
more than effective, lie mowed down
tho opposition with that calm regularity
which marks all his work. The lllckevo
didn't hae a chance to score, while the
Mat kmen piled up half a dozen runs.

Gridiron News Gleaned From Leading Colleges
Football Players Enter Upon
Another Hard Week of
Training in Preparation for
Big Games Next Saturday.
Whether or not Pennsylvania will have
a football team of championship propor
tions ot one of only mediocre strength
was not dlscloed by Saturday's same
against Gettysburg That 14-n victory was
won by n comfortable margin, and picttj
accuiately gauges the comparative
strength of the two teams. At the same
time, when we remember the defenielcs
noss of Gettysburg last near and the
smashing victory which the Quakers won
then by the score of o3-0, two facts stand
forth with great clearness. One Is that
this year' Gettysburg team knew more
football than its predecessor and likewise
that It displayed a better fighting qual
ity. A second fact not to be overlooked
I that this yeat's Quaker team !. not
nearly so far advanced In its attacking
power as was the 1013 eleven In Its first
Virtually all nf the faults evident In the
work of the Red and Blue were due to
lack of practice, an entirely new back
Hold and lack of unity between the back
field und the line. These weaknesses
were to bo expected and won't cause the
coaches undue alarm. Jn fact, a 14-0
score for the first game Is much mote
desirable than one of 53-0 proportions.
Nothing retards the progress of n team
more than ovet confidence, and big pre
liminary scotes invariably contrlbue to
that. The Quakers still have plenty of
time to get In shape for their big games,
and the schedule has been so graduated
that each s'atuiday hrings a tougher op

could probably have scored nearly K0
points. At Is was, nearly three elevens
got Into the play. Tho most conspicu
ous feature of the work done by the
new men wns the feat of McKllnlock,
a substitute quarterback, in scoring a
field goal from the 10-yard line. Now
Httrwird, In addition to the Incomparable
drop-klckers. Briekley and Marian, has
found a third such kicker.
Yale made good the prediction of Frank
Illnkcy, the new coach, and displayed
a lot of open-flcla work, which fairly
dazzled the Maine eleven. Maine held
Yale to a 0-0 score last year, so this
easy victory may be taken to Indicate
that football will enjoy a new era at
New Haven this fall. Princeton found
Rutgers a tough antagonist, and had Just
about enough superior strength to win by
the score of 12 to 0. I.Ike Yale, Princeton
showed considerable piollclcncy in the
operation of the forward pass.

Dickson has a problem to face with tin I
