Uncertainty of His Playing Spirit Dims Rccordf but Coaches
Wjll Use Him Against Cornell Murdock May
Prove to Be Pillar of Strength. .
' Can tho University
of Pennsylvania
football authorities, by an eleventh-hour
Bhlft, save their team from destruction al
tho hands of Cornell? No team In Penn
sylvania hlBtory ever had to face such
a trying situation or had less reason for
hopo. Tllelr hopes aro built on Mtlo be
Bides experiments. They may do better
than, many persona anticipate, but It docs
no' iftok as though this Cornell team
fid lend Itself to this sort of a pro
gram. They know too much football.
Tho action of the Pennsylvania coaches
In putting Avery at fullback to replace
Tucker may work tho charm, for Avery
has carried good luck with him most of
the seaeoii. Ho beat the Navy with an
Intercepted forward pass and an 0-yard
run, and he triumphed over the Indians
with a forward pass which ho sent to
There Is no reason why Avery should
not bo a wonderful player. He has every
requisite for It, speed, strength and
weight. That ho has not been Is duo to
the fact that he doesn't play overy
mtnuto with the sort of fighting abandon
that characterized cx-Cnptnln Hill llol
lenback. But Avery has been known to
play this sort of game, and tho writer
has seen him do It more Minn. once In tho
dally practices on Franklin Field, but
never In a big game. Tho stago Is now
sot -for Avery, and ho has the chance of
his life to distinguish himself. This Is
Ills last game for Pennsylvania, and If
ho goes Into It. with tho proverbial do or
die spirit ho will make a namo for him
self, '
The coaches nre uncertain In their own
minds whether to use Merrell or Murdock
al quarterback. Each of these men has
qualities which commend him to tho
coachos. Morrell has the advantago of
being a known quantity, although ho
doesn't measuro up to what tho coaches
expect of him. AH of them hope and
some think that Murdock, If given tho

There -were murmurlngs after the loss of
the Harvard game, and In spite of tho
brilliant rally against Yalo In tho final
quarter the Tiger undergraduates nre not
satisfied. They don't think tho coaches
made anything llko tho best uso of their

Ono suggestion Is that Keene Fltzpat

tho track team, bo made head coach of
tho footbult team. This Is the most rad

likely to meet with much favor among

plenty of reason for suggesting Fltzpat

Victory Over Jasper Tonight
.Will Put Alpha Team at
Top of Eastern League
Cninden's speedy five has a chance to
night to leap Into first placo In the
Eastern league race. Jasper will open
Its cage to tho Jersey players. The up
town"" quintet Is one game behind Cam
den In the number played, hence a de
feat at the hands of the Alpha men will
mean that Jasper goes down the laddor
to a tlo with DoNerl for second place.
Although Camden was beaten last nlBht
by the Musical Fund Hall boys, the traw
Dclawaro men put up desperate resistance
against tho enemy and they expect to
night to como away from tho cage In
Kensington leading the league. Tonight's
game will be a battle between the guardo
of Jasper and "Jackie" Adams, tho won
derful little left-handed goal tosser of
tho Cnmden team. "Jackie" has been
watched closely all this season and It It
rather raro for him to make any great
number of field goals now. However, with
the opposing guards watching and fol
lowing him so closely, Adams helps his
teammates with clenn assists and the
team plays Just as strong a game with
him practically useless as far aa goal
shooting Is concerned, as though he wero
caging tho ball from all angles.
Tonight's game at Jasper will begin at
9 o'clock.

Tho latest stunt.pullcd off by the Salem

at night. Some of the menbers have been
quietly working on the scheme for several
months Rnd a private demonstration was
given before a few representatives of
the leading manufacturers and shooters
last week, and proved very successful.
Tho system not only shows up a blue
rock from the time It leaves the trap
until It strikes the ground, to tho satis
faction of the shooter, but by a separate
gystem. lights up his gun as well.
The Salem Club has decided to hold a

"West Philadelphia High meet on the grid
Iron at the P. U. It. Y. M. C. A. grounds,
at 1UI1 street and Parkslde avenue. This
contest should draw a crowd of more
than 6000. Including many ntumnac, as
well as the schoolboys themselves. Odds
favor Central High, but a closer contest
than the Northeast High-West Philadel
phia game should result, ns Central has
by no means tho perfected array tho
Archives are putting on the field.
Another contest tomorrow that will at
tract a lot of Interest Is tho Penn Char-ter-Germantown
Academy game, at
Queen Lane. These teams are rivals of
long standing and always put up a brand
of football that Is of first-class order.
Bovoral other scholastic and academic
contests will also bo played tomorrow,
among them being the Episcopal Acad
emy and Friends' Central match. Lower
Merlon clashes with Itadnor High, and
this should also prove an interesting
About the tlmo of Central High's de
feat at the hands of Atlantic City tho
team was reported to have struck a
slump, and recent practices seem to bear
out tho opinion. Injuries to Captain
Stephens nnd Fullback Butler have no
tably Impaired the playing of theso two
mainstays, whllo the team haa become
somewhat lax on the defense. Most diffi
culty seems to be encountered broaklng
up forward passes, which may provo dis
astrous In the Northeast game. The ends
are easily enticed to rush In and the sec
ondary defenso Is slow to size Up the na
ture and direction of the play. The
tackling has also been uncertain, but
Coach Howell expects to overcomo this
falling by continuous practice this week.
The smashing backflcld and tho heavy
line, however, will prove difficult for West
Philadelphia to combat. Captain Stephens
Harvard' eleven Is first In line for the col
legiate football championship this season. If
the Cambridge representatives conquer Talo
the matter will be settled once and for all. Tho
students of the game are unanimously of tlu
opinion that Harvard will win tho 10M laurels.
Harvard's team has been proved to be a most
remarkable one.
Not only will New Haven be the scene ot ths
Harvard-Vale football game Saturday, but an
other Interesting Athletic event Is scheduled.
It Is the annual Intercollegiate cross-country
race. Unless thero la a most sensational upsot,
the Cornell University squad should romp sway
not only with tho first Individual place, but the
team honors as well. The Ithacans appear to
have the most remarkably balanced distance
team In the history or th Institution, rotter
and Wlndnagle will probably light It out for
flrat place, and It would not greatly surprise
to see the pack mako a perfect team score aa
It has done twice this year. Pennsylvania ap
pears to havo an excellent opportunity of land
ing tho eecond team honors. If the locals show
the speed expected of them tho squad' score
should be a lalrly good one.
Golf has come to be a sport of auch great
popularity that It holds the attention or the ad
vocate even with tho temperature bolow tho
freezing point. Tho sportsmen here havo been
taking advantage of tho clear days and frigid
weather the last two davs haa not dampened
th ardor. Not only Is the Interest finely devel
oped here, but In oilier sect!on-the name spirit
Is evidenced. From early spring until anow
falls the golfers now have their swing.
Swarthmoro student steadfastly stick to their
aasertton that their eleven Is better than Hav
erford. Lafayette athletes predict they will do
feat Lehigh and vlco erss. Just to show the
tremendous spirit prevailing.
"Ted" Meredith, tho crack University of
Pennsylvania middle distance runner, showed
true form at the Newark Indoor gamea last
night by creating a new world's record of no
seconds flat for the BOO-jard distance. Our old
friend, "Mel" Sheppard. once traveled the dis
tance In 81. which was the set of figures shat
tered by the Olympic SOO metre champion.
Homer Baker was to hae met "Ted," but
failed to ahow for tho race. "Ted" waa primed
for th race with Baker and aa the latter beat
the Phlladelphlan In hta last tart at BOO yard
there was blood In the local's eyes. The meet
ing of these two wonders of tho clnderpath Is
always a treat, and the followers at the games
last night were much disappointed
The spirit of charity seems to be the prevail
ing tratt of Philadelphia's athletes, and we are
iproud to note It, The latest athletlo organiza
tion to go afield In an ffort to further a
worthy cause are tho representatives of tho
Vinoome and Illtner football teams. These two
crack elevens will battle next Saturday on the
Ktrawbrldge A Clothier field for the benefit of
the North 'American Free Children's Sanitar
ium for tho Treatment of Tuberculosis at At
lantic City, Th cause Is a most worthy one
and It will be very pleasing If a great turnout
of sportsmen l recorded.
