"Home-run Hank" Is Cry Now Heard in Baseball World Boston's Star Is Real Hero. m ; r I ,1 ,. u i By BEHTON BRALEY BOSTON, Oct. 13 "Tlio king Is dead long live the king" we thrill no more at Bakci's nanus Ho lonKor do his praises ring ns "master hitter of the frame"; another monarch reigns Instead and stalks triumphant to the throne, the crown of swat 13 on hi"! head Hank Govvtly rules, unmatched, olonol For when through ages we look back on stara whose fame has traveled far, not one could hit u fletcor wlinclt or glvo tho Bphere a harder Jar a home run slammed outside the lot, two doubles walloped to the stands, today made CJrwfly kins of awat a willow sceptre In his hands! And this new star In halldom, who fills the world with awe, was once In heavy thraldom t: Ml John McGntw. But John, with cyeblght cloudy and vision rather dim, could not "ee" Mi Gowdy and so he trnded him (If smiles of glco you'd gaze upon, Just mention Gowdy s name to John). And here tho muje Is put to shame nhe can't, she can't describe thlt game. It wi won and lost and loa and won, omo several times era the game was won and from two o'clock till tho sun had set our hands were shaking, our brows wore wet, as for twolvo mad Innings wo sat In thrall to the thrills and chills of that game of ball. And tho Braves won oat toy a. brand of wit, a strength of soul and a nerve Mid Krit which probably never will bo sur passed In all the yetirs that The Gome shall last. In tho tenth they were "whipped." thoy were "down and out," when two men scored on Baker's clout, and we sighed "good night" In the gathering gloam, and reached for our hats and started home. But hark what's that' there's a thud a crash as Gowdy swings for a homo run smash. Then a hit or two, when tho need Is great, and Monin comes trot ting across the plate, and the rooters throw their hats asldo for the tenth Is o'er and the score Is tied Then at last. In tho twelfth, comes the looked-for break Joe Bush throws wild with tho game at stake, and tho run comes In as the rooters roar and the Braves have conquered by 5 to 11 "RED" SMITH BAMPANT ?EW TORK, Oct. lS.-St. Mary'3 Hos pital, In Brooklyn, was kept In more or loss of an uproar yesterday afternoon by Bed Smith, of the Boston Braves. Smith was taken to the hospital after his leg w-as broken at Ebbeta Field, last Tues day. Almost the entire forco of employes was on duty in and about Smith's room while the gams between the Bravos and the Athletics was In progress at Boston. At times tho patient showed such strong Indications of bounding out of bed that several of the "strong-arm" squad of orderlies ranged themselves In position for an effective tackle. FOOTBALL INJURY FATAL EMMITTSBUBG, McL. Oct. 13.-William S. English, a member of the senior class of Mount St. Mary's College, was injured In a game of football on the college campus yesterday and died an hour later without regaining consciousness. He did not belong to the varsity squad, but en tered Into the game as the result of n ohallenge made by two elevens from the eenlor class. Personal Touches in Sport A WORD TO THE HONORABLE GOWDY (By W. A. McG.) Howdy, Mister Gowdy, with your biffing- bludgeon black, We hate to see you swing it, but we're glad to see you back. We wish you all the best of luck, but hope you break an arm, Both legs, your neck and skull, but trust you do not come to harm. Truly, you're unruly with that battle club of yours, Sending- little baseballs on such airy, lengthy tours; Can't you lean less heavily, just to give us hope? If you do not halt a bit, you'll fracture all the dope. Tell us, were you jealous of the fame F. Baker got, Clouting of the horsehide till it flew out of the lot? You've been inconsiderate, you have had a gall, You should now be satisfied; do not hog it all. Plain Henry It. 073 right name Is. That Cy part Isn't really his, the fam'ly Bible shows. But no one calls him Henry It. Bo -we've no right to go that far, the Eood St. Patrick knows. In Poroeroy, Ohio, Cy grew up till he -was six feet htgh-then tacked on one inch more. He first played pro In nlnrteen-one. In New York State at Illon he figured la a score. He shifted "round till nlneteen-flve -when major scouts stamped him aa live enough to pitch real ball. His sal'ry whip he showed the Browns, but all he drew was laughs and frowns St. Louee wouldn't tall. Then Sllnneap' an' Indiana?' each gave a. tryout to the chap an' fit. Paul worked film, too. Next Boston gave his slants a whirl. Then Montreal fans -watched htm twirl an' Maok thought he would do. So Cy In nlneteen-hundred-nlne was on Athletics' flrln' line an' didn't do so bad. He worked for Mack three years or so an' then -went back to small time, dough because hla work sot sad. Ha tried one comeback as a Red. But Tinker found hla arm was dead and got his money back. Cys pltchln' still for ol' K. C. In thirteen years o' trav'lln' he sure cov ered sonni more, track. Copyrighted by A. M. Corrigan. ' AD hope of ultimate success for th Ath letics la the world'B series with Boston has not died In the brents of Athletic followers here Those who were up on the "dope" knew full well that precedent did not forbid a four-straight spurt by tho Mackmen In the series In IMS when Pittsburgh Beemlngly bad the series won from tho Boston Americans, the latter came through with four straight victories and -won out Four straight were won by ,il the Cubs from Detroit In 1907. but In that r.Mrei the Tigers had not taken a game. Tho contending clubs In that year opened 'with a three-three, tie which seemed to lerip tha Ufe out of the Petrolters. as they eathen proceeded to make history by fall ir ins; to -win a game In the series Then, too, back In the dark ages of baseball. 7 Pop Anson's Chicago boys took three straight games from St. Louis only to be beaten out In tho four straight games following. A dispatch from Englewood states that In the Athletic meet held there the scor er and athletes differed on the subject of scoring;.

SDTTON-SCHAEFER FINISH BILLIARD CONTEST TONIGHT Veteran Sutton Victorious, 400 to 321, in First Leg of 1 200-point Contest Play This Afternoon. George Sutton will meet "Young Jako" Sch.iefLr In the final 00 point 141 balk line billiard match tonight at Alllnger'a Ai-aUemi . 1307 Market street, in what should prove to be one of the most Inter esting new-game matches of the year. The plav Is being held under the auspices of the Champion Billiard Players' League, and 1200 points Is tho goal set. Both men are experts at the 14.1 billiard pastime, and as thoy are now in good form excep tionally flnp work Is due. This afternoon 4M points will bo played, making tho second leg of the contest. Tho final 400 points are to bo played tonight. In tho opening 400-polnt round last night Georgo Sutton, tho veteran billiard player. showed splendid control and defeated his younger opponent, Schaefer, 400 to 321.

If an official scorer ever decided a close, play so as to please the batter and the opposing pitcher at the samo time, there Is no record of such an occurrence. Every batter Is pulling for his hits, and every pitcher Is pulling to have the blame ahlftod on his team-mates by having them credited with an error Instead of a hit Hcnc. the official scorer In a baseball game Is much better off If he keeps severely away from the players. It was unusual, but not startling, that Johnny Kv ers should have "pulled a bone" in yesterday's game But It was ultra ttartllpg that he admitted It. The crowd at the Polo Grounds showed Its Interest In the city series by allow ing the game to be finished between the Giants and Yankees without knowing It. They wera watohlng tha detail of the E.nno In Boston. New York oarsmen are loth to give up their work on the river, and yesterday the New York Bowing Association held Us fall regatta. Good time waa made considering the lateness of th season. "Jimmy" Rlre has been creating quits a bit of gossip among the college oars men by his aggressiveness at Columbia. Not so many days ago he announced his Intention of promoting a dosed regatta, and now Columbia men and others are of the belief that such plan will work wonders with team Interests. "Al" McCoy is to fight "WllUe" Lawls in New York tonight. Homo of the local fans will smile when they read this, for they are convinced McCoy doesn't know what the word "fight" means. Anyhow, Mao Is to "go on ' with Lewis. McCoy r-as never been taken seriously as mid dleweight champion, even though he did manage to knock out George Chip, of Pittsburgh. He doesn't measure ap to the standard of champion, and It will bs hard for any one to convince us that he Is. Harvard's football Injury list Is Increas ing. Fennook now has water on the knee and Sweetser hurt his ankle In practice. It seems misfortunes never come singly. According to a story printed In New York papers today, the Army and Navy are at odds and the failure of the foot ball game to materialize may mean sen sational developments. W are not surprised. Gridiron Gleanings From Leading Colleges By EDWARD B. BTJSHNELTi Ono of tho principal reasons why Penn sylvania didn't score a single point against Lafayette on Saturday was that Mattheus couldn't diop kick, and tho coaches didn't know that they had a man In the back field who could placo kick oven better than Dick Marshall could drop kick last year. The man who has been hiding his light under a bushel Is none other than Vreeland, who In his first ef fort at playing halfback was eclipsed In brilliancy only by fullback Tucker. Vree land is entirely too modost to toll of his exploits In tho goal kicking lino, but his record which the writer has dust up BPeaks loudly for him. Two years ago Vreeland was a fresh man at Muhlenburg College where ho played In tho back field. During that season he scored 61 points. Of this total he scored 24 points with goals from touch downs, missing but a single such trial all season. He scored 27 points In addition with nine goals from placement during tho season. Ho kicked one goal from placement in every gomo on tho schedule, and in one game he scored twice. Among the teams against which he scored In this manner were Lafayette, Lehigh and Urslnus. Vreeland hna done no kicking on Frank lin Field, Last spring he broko his right leg playing baseball, and has been sav ing himself this fall. Fortunately he kicks with his left foot, so that tho In jury he sustained won't affect his kick ing. The ahances are that the Quaker coaches v. Ill give Vreeland a chance in practice this week. Nothing delights Head Coach George Brooke moro than to And a man with this sort of talent, and since Matthews has shown himself to be undependable as a drop kicker the coaches are likely to test Vreeland In this department, "Bull" McCIeary. the old State Col lege tackle, has been of much assistance to Coach Hedges in rounding out the Germantown Academy team this season. "Bull" has been out nearly every dny on the Manhelm gridiron, working with the line candidates, thus allowing Hedges to spend all his time with the ends and baakfleld men. A new acquisition In the person of Kaiser reported for a line berth last week, and Is expected to fill the vacancy In the line left open by the withdrawal of Hamill from the squad. Kaiser Is exactly six feet In height and tips the beam at US pounds. The football situation out at West Phil adelphia Is Improving to noma extent, but the team has a long way to ro before It can hopo to hold the speedy Northeast and Central High elevens In the big games next month. Quarterback Bills practically won the recent Cheater High battld, and he looks more and more like on all-soholastlo choice every time out. Wagenknlght, of course, is badly missed, for he was. the beat man at the quarter back position In the local schools last year, but It Is doubtful If Coaoh Mulford could get a better man for the position than Ellis right now. The former Is ex pected to get back In the game some time next month, and In this event will more than likely be shifted to a halfback. In order to utilize his work In the open field. The local schools have not shown much Interest In cross-country running thua far. Even Central High, the leader In this branch of sport has been taking things eaiy, while some of tho other schools appear to be at a standstill. Doc tor O'Brien has had his squad out on Houston Field every day for a light jog, but none of the candidates has had an opportunity as yet to try the difficult Lemon Hill course In Fairmount Park. ( I'nis uaturaay win see the opening of the hill and dale season, when a race for novices will be staged, and following th's the teams win get down to work In earnest. The regulars of the Northeast High football squad were given a rest yester day after the hard game against 'William son Trade School on Saturday. Captain Webb was on the field in spite of in juries received in the game. Hardin, likewise Injured In Saturday's game, has also recovered Through sheer necessity Wilson was switched from end to half back on Saturday and made good at his new position. As lildpath and Ilrolt haupt are now taking cara of th wing positions, Wilson may win a permanent place in the backfield. Coach Johnson was pleased -with the team's clever use of the forward pass. "Webb and Heuer did some accurate toss ing and Rldpath and Brelthaupt held on to the oval every time it came their way, Captain Dunn's Northeast soccer men are fast rounding into shape and it looks as If Northeast will again be in the run ning for the championship. Threo teams are practicing dally. Palt, a new man from the Disston Grammar School, Is showing surprising form. Parkerman and White are also playing; well McComas, of last year's team is unable to play be cause of parental objections. The first gamo will tako place on November 3, against Morrlstown High, at Northeast Field. It isn t likely that rennsjUania will make nn clianjes in tho line-up lor the Navy same unless Wraj starts at halfback in placo of AjOrtet. In every other position the team which played against I.afaette gavo a good exhibi tion anil the men Individually anil ns a team remedied muny of the mistakes ot previous sanies. .Ml they Itave to do now Is to main tain the paco they have set. If any man lots down thcro will be a lot of men lighting for hli foaltlon. It's 11 pretty hard matter to estimate tho strength that tho Navy, the Indians and hnarthmoro will presont to the Quakers. The Jsavy has been at work ever slnco the last week in August, when preliminary practice started, but the team Iulb plajed only two gomos. Tha Middles opened the sonaon with Georgetown and won rather easily. On Satur day they fell bofore tho prowess of thn Uni versity of Pittsburgh. As tho Middles beat Pittsburgh n vear ago this reversal of form Indicates that the midshipmen are not up to their ltU.1 record. They have lost a lot of their lDl'l regulars, and If Pennsylvania keeps on Improving the Red and Bluo Is likely to be victorious. It Is too bad that the authorities- of the Naval Academy have refused permission to the body of midshipmen to attend this game. If tho Army-Navy gamo Is actually called off It nould stem only fair to the Middies to let them como up In a body to see their team play They won't have a chance to leave tho city again this fall. If the Harvard team doesn't loe Its nerve, now that lirlckley Is tn tho hospital recover ing from an operation for appendicitis, the Crimson may have a backneld very llttlo Infe rior to that of last vear. lirlckley made his reputation as a drop klcKer. but because he nav so expert ha made It Impossible for Mahan to prove his worth. Last soar whenever Drtck ley was kept out of tho game Mahin did the drop kicking, and ho rarely failed to score in this manner. In one game kicking two such goals. That he didn't score oftaner was due to tho fact that tho Crimson had moro depend ence In Iirtckley. But. given the chance. Mahnn will do almost bb well, not to mention Hard wick, who kicked one such goal on Saturday when both Brlokley and Mahan were out, and McKlnlock, who did It the week before. Drlck ley was a wonderful player, but Harvard will etlll havo a baakfleld which will stir both Princeton and Tale to envy. ANNAPOLIS. Oct LI Though the Midship men began yesterdoy their special prepnra Hon for tha gsma nealnet tha University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, regarded as tho bis game on the Navy team's schedule now tint the Army gamo la off, less than an hour could bo deed, aa the football men were re quired to attend tho regular Monday drill. It ts hoped, however, to have hard crtmmage.s on at least threo days this week. Alexander, who played such a atrong game against Pitts, burgh Saturday during the short time he was In the game, was in tho regular backfield dur ing signals and It looks as If ho had a strong hold on the position. ITHACA. Oct. 18. Although the major por tion of tha Cornell football squads studied football theory and tactics In a lecture room jeatorday. nan Heed had a number of the tackles guarda and centres out on the field for individual practice, as ho Is anxious to get the strongest linn on the field as soon as Jar IfS t fsjfvsSjsstiypi bJSRmMi sSjuTV-n 0 m HOLLENBACH, OF MUHLEN BERG One of tho best guards seen In ac tion for Muhlenberg, is Hollenbach'a record so far this year, possible Oaliogly, Munelclc, Cool Anderson and Dalley so far have tho call on tho posi tions from tackle to tacklo, but Iteed Ik get ting good results out of Tllloy and Snjdor, guards, and Jameson, Jewett and llutts, tackles, and a number of other men are show ing promise. NEW HAVEN, Oct. VS. Yale began making ready for Notro Dame jesterday. Coach Frank Illnkey put the varsity through a long secret signal drill, which Included almost every play mid formation tho llluo eleven has. The scrubs showed tho veterans some new formations. In juries kept several veterans out of tho line-up Conroy took Oakes' place at loft guard, Wal den replaced J. Sheldon at right guard and Hetts took the position of right tackle which a Sheldon has filled during the enforced ab sence of Von Holt, who will be out for two weeks yet with a broken wrist. WEST rOINT. Oct. 13.-Not much In the way of real work oould have been accomplish ed yesterday even if the coaches had so willed, for so many of the Army men aro decorating tho side lines aa a rcuult of the hard game against Rutgers last Saturday that to form a varsity team for scrimmaging would have been well nigh Impossible. Such man as wero avail able were limbered up In a driving signal drill and tho whole squad listened to Iload Coach Daly and his assistants for an hour In the gymnasium, where tha faults of Saturday's play were dwelt upon at great length. ANN AnUOIl. Mich.. Oct. 13. Captain lUynsford, of tho Michigan team, wired his sympathy today to Captain Briekloy, of Har vard. Yost Inst Craig, one all-tAmerican half back, while Haughtnn now has lost lirlckley, tha other universal choice for the all-star cast. Harvard still has the edge In veterans, with Ijogun. Mahan and Hardwlck In tha back field against Jlughitt and Gait for Michigan. CAMT1RIDOB, Mass., Oct. 12 -Harvard's first string football plajers those that aro left attended the world's aeries gamo today, but tha substitutes and the scrubs put In a hard session In the morning. To help matters a little, the announcement waa mado that Stan ley Pennock the veteran right guard, hna water on the knee and will he out for two weeks, while Sweataer. one of tho most prom Ing of the tackles, sprained his ankle and per haps pulled a tendon. Hardwlck, the halfback. Is battered up, and though he will play again Saturday he is not In ahapa to do much work before that time. PRINCETON. Oct. IB. In r!te ot tho stiff game on Saturday, the Princeton players were put through a short scrlmmago yesterday It whs a. most encouraging practice, ina lortvara paBecfl worked well am a in; brte touchdowns were floored directly on them. The itcrubi were the oreti air P orients opponents or the nrt team, Tvii.cn cona about an equal number of first and he flrit team, which consisted of lal number of first and urcond string men. They offered & fair defense, but wore bandlcacDe ea on the offense by tho funw bllnff of thtlr backs, SOCCER SNAPSHOTS One of tha most surprising results on Satur day was the drawn game between Bethlehem and Victor In tho American Ixjajrue at Beth lehem. Each side scored two goals and at hair time Bethlehem held a lead ot two vcala to none and deserved it. The Victor team plajed a treat same In tha second halt and praotlcally hemmed tho steolworkers In their own half ef the ground. Tha Robinsons. New ton. Qaynor, Drtgham and Bcott proved them selves a wonderful forward line, and tha Bath lahem defense was sura put to It to prevent them from eoortns more than two goals. A. an all-round sportsman C B.

It Is really a pity that with the breaVlnf up of tha Pennsylvania league the nam Ta oony should have disappeared from among tha (1st of soccer olubs.

KALBFUS SPEAKS WELL OF STATE'S FIELD SPORTSMEN In an Article Believes Every True-hearted One Would Give Up Gun Forever to Aid in Propagation. Joseph Kalbfus, secretary of the Board of Come Commissioners of Pennsylvania, Is the author of the following Interesting article in the bulletin printed by the American Game Protective Association: "Regarding the reported nesting ef ducks in PymatunluK swamp, about which the bulletin Inquires, I would say, I be lieve that more or less ducks of various kinds, especially black ducks and wood ducks, with some ordinary mallards, have been hatching In this Bwamp since the discovery of Pennsylvania, the number gradually growing less up to the begin ning of this year. I am not posted regard ing the number of ducks that may be now making that section their abiding place, but I am satisfied that the protection given through the national law controlling migratory birds will cause many of these birds to stop In this place, and it will again become, as In former times, a noted breeding place for this species of game. "I note what Is said In several letters from your omce regarding the success of the effort to secure an appropriation for ths enforcement of the migratory blid law, and I most heartily congratulate jour organisation for the Bplendld work done In securing this end. If the com mittee that haa In charge the drafting of regulations controlling the enforcement of this law Is only halfway fair, It seems to me there should be no trouble anywhere In the United States. over Its provisions As I said In Wilmington few weeks ago, I do not believe there is a true sportsman In Pennsylvania, who Is not -willing to put up his gun forever If he Is shown that such action is neces sary to preserve any species of wild birds, but we could not Bee the Justice or reason In Bajlng that Pennsylvania and other States shou d not kill certain birds at all. while certain other sections were given an open season for such birds."
