Pennsylvania's Eleven Is to
Be Put Through Some
Strenuous Workouts This
Princeton and Yale have burned their
bridges behind them In their determina
tion to play nothing but open, advanced
football. Both Coach Pendleton, of
Princeton, and Coach Hlnkey, of Yale,
declare that they havo abandoned tho
conservative game and intend to stand
or fall by the open game. This Is in
deed welcome news, because It can't be
denied that in tho past the gamts be
tween these two teams have been fre
quently about as dull as most Army
Navy games, with the two teams afraid
to open up.
Apparently the coaches of both insti
tutions have awakened to tho fact that
In developing the possibilities of open
football their predecessors have only
scratched the surface. There's a lot of
truth in this. Tor one thing, they have
been too much afraid of losing posses
sion of the ball to try much else but
close formation plays, varied by an oc
casional forward pass, though most of
the forward passes have been used as a
Inst resort when everything else had

Merrill has the inside track for the quar
terback position on the Pennsylvania
eleven. In yesterday afternoon's practice
he played this position most of the time.
and his work was a continuation of what
he did on Saturday ngainst Gettysburg.
Merrill Is nbout the only member of tho
back Held who possesses a change of pace
and who can straight-arm tacklers. Like
wise, he catches punts with some cer- i
talnty. Merrill's running In the open field ,
Is very mucli like that of Miller, the for-
vanin would have a fleet-footed pair. The
Pennsylvania system requires that tho
ends shnll bo heavy men to play against
the opposing tackle. This requirement
is what makes Murdock's effort to win a
position here so dlfllcult. Muidock Is will
ing enough and a born fighter, but throw
ing his 150 pounds against a 100-pound
tackle doesn't worry tho opposing tackle
very much.

no let up in the work The linesmen were
worked hard jin breaking through. th

coaching from Crawford Illegden. 'irj, who
plaed with C'utts on Dae Campbell's team

to put the trimmings on a football team.
Another method Is that adopted here

tho Penn game.
Now that "P.ube" Marquard has won
a game, tho proposed trailo is apt to be
called off. Any man who loses a dozen
in a row, thun captures the thirteenth
start. Is certainly not Unlucky. M-Graw
haan't much material, hence he needs
luck, and "Itube" seems to be the man
with tho horseshoe.
The Pljllliea havo still n fighting chance
for first division. They are three gam-s
behind the 'ubs. On the other hand,
th BrooklMi club has better than a
fighting chance to dislodge the locals
from fifth place, as tho Daisies are lead
Ing the Lodgers by tho keen margin of
only half a game.

NRW YORK, Sept. SO. Melbourne In
man, English billiard champion, defeated
Willie Hoppe, American billiard champion,
at the Hotel Astor last nlsht In the first
same of a 6000-polnt combination match
at both Ensllsh and American billiards.
In man's score for the opening session
was 602 to Hoppe's VH. The Englishman
avoruned 37 S-12, while Hoppe's average
was 13 18-23.
The match continues throughout the
week, 1S.J American balk lino being the
game for this afternoon and tonight.
Inman showed himself to be the master
of the English style of play and decidedly
outclassed his American opponent. It
is claimed, however, by Hoppe's friends,
that the youthful American champion will
more than make up for last night's defeat
when the American game Is played today
The two styles of play are decidedly
different, the balk lino game being played
on a 5x10 table without pockets, while
the English game Is played on a 6x1
table with six pocket.
The majority of those who saw the con
test last night are of the opinion that
the English game will never become popu

ends In Philadelphia in Young and Kerr,
opt neither man Is now in school, nnd
the material for the wing positions is
not very good.
The most likely of the candidates arc
DeLong, Brenner and Goodell, and It Is
probable that the first two of these will
make the regular berths, although the
latter, who Is from Villanova, Is very
fast and may make a plncc on the team.
