' In Philadelphia a team known ns the Stanley Profes
sionals was organized this fall. A hard schedule was
Arranged and many former college stars had signed up for
thoj season. Heinle Miller, Lew Little, Lud Wray and
Bert Bell, of Pcnn; .Tack Desmond, of Harvard; Fritz
Ifqilard, of Brown; 3ohn Wcldon and John Scott, of
Lafayette, and many others were ready to start training
rhcn the baseball scandal broke.
Bell Calls Off Everything
BERT BELL, captain of Pcnn last year, who was part
, , owner of the team, called a meeting of his partners and
decided to abandon the project. Tho men were released
and all of the games canceled.
v "This unsavory publicity which professional sport Is
totting in Chicago," said Bert Bell, "will not help foot
tall this year. No matter how honest the players may
be, the public nlwnjs will have a feeling that the games
are not being played on the level. I'd hate to drop a punt
in a close game and have the people yell from the stands
that I was in the pay of gamblers. I realize we can't do
anything this year and ecr thing is off. The players wo
kave Bigned can join any team they desire.
Sorry to Dissipate Idea
fix's A WAY, I am sorry wo could not go through with
v ! the idea. I believe n college football player has juit
as much right to continue playing after leaving school as
)ascball men and could derive juxt as much enjoyment out
cf the sport. The game could be played almost as well
as in college, nud it would huc been a close corporation.
"By that I mean, only ex-college men would have
Jccn eligible. No players now in school would be toler
ated, and if auy wanted to join wc would have notified
fho coach of the team. This idea of paying college
player? to play football on Sunday Is all wrong, and if it
continues it won't be long before the professional game
will die a natural death.
"I understand Jim Thorpe has passed that rule in
Ohio, and if such is tho case, it is a step In the right
direction. College plajers cannot get away with it and
taany promising careers huve been ruined."
Lots of Betting in Football
THERE is quite a little gambling in football. Thousands
of dollars arc bet openly on the games In the West, and
now that uc have been allowed to look behind the scenes
in "baseball it is only natural to assume that efforts hare
been made to "fix" the professional games also. The sure
"thing boys arc willing to pay a hundred dollars to get
Jtack a thousand any time.
r" Professional football never has been successful outside
of Ohio. That is because there arc few colleges out there.
and In towns like Masslllon and Canton the fans arc used
to the sport. In those towns there has been but one
scandal and that ended football for flvo years.
Independent football Is perfectly proper. Thousands
of teams nre formed every year and games ore plojcd for
the sport of it. The players nre. not on the salary list.
Bert Bell is the first to sec tho danger In professional
football, and It would not be at all surprising it others
followed his example. k
Universal Praise for Comisheys Action
THERE isn't a fan in baseball today who is'not prais
ing the action of Charley Comlskcy In giving each of
his honest baseball players n check for $1500. The White
Sox magnate did this because ho thought It was the right
thing to do. He has always been on tho right side and
has done as much as any one man to bring baseball to its
present pinnacle of popularity.
The money which Comlskey gave his men yesterday
represented the difference between the amount which they
received and what they would have received had tho White
Sox beaten the Cincinnati Reds in the world's series of
Comlslccy'n action means more, however, than the mere
giving of a sum of money. It means that although a few
crooks havo ruined his baseball dub and have done irrep
arable damage 'to his business, he still believes in the
integrity of baseball nnd baseball players, Just as every
other fair-minded man docs.
In giving this bonus or whatever you wnnt to call it
Comlskey also proves that he wants baseball run on n high
business basis in the future, just as proposed recently by
him, Barney Drcyftiss, William L. Vccck and John J.
McOraw. It Is worth while looking over the proposition
which the men advocate. Hero is what It was;
(CPJIE undersigned membert respectively of the
Xational League, American League of Pro
fessional Hasehall Clubs and the National Associa
tion of Professional Baseball Clubs, bejicving that
the present deplorable condition in baseball has been
brought about by the lack of complete supervisory
control of professional baseball; and
"The undersigned believing that the only cure
for such condition is by having at the head of base
ball men (in no wise connected telth baseball) who
are so prominent and representative among the
American people that not a breath of suspicion
could ever be reflected; and
"The undersigned further believing that the
public, as icell as tho owners and players, are en
titled to the fullest measure of protection in the
further conduct and operation of the national game;
"Tho undersigned now agree to put in im
mediate operation a plan by ichich the three most
prominent men attainable (in no wise connected
icith baseball) be enlisted to aot as a Superior
i Tribunal, at whatever compensation may be neces
sary; that such Tribunal so constituted shall have

Baltimore Boxer Outclasses West Virginian and Bout Is
- Stopped in Fourth Round at tlie Olympia
fito By LOUIS H. JAFKE
WALTER (GOO) STEWART came
liun nil the way from Wheeling,
West Virginy, apparently for no other
purpose than to prove to those at the
Qlympla last night that he had been
Incorrectly dubbed. A better nickname
for Walter would be "Stew" Stewart,
because it would be nu nl'ltcration,
easier to remember, and. mostly, be
cause it would he more appropriate.
Stewart was supposed to go on for
ight rounds In the star set-to against
"JToung Andv Chanev, of Baltimore, but
as soon as the bell for the opening canto
?oundcd the unfortunate onlookers
idn't have to be told that Ooo, or
,'Stew," was everything thnt the latter
implies in the vernacular. There were
Bine perfectly good reasons why Stew
art showed that he was not n star
mittmnn. One wnN that he cjuldn't box
well enough to lick nn ordinary 'pork-4nd-beaner."
It isn't necessary to men
tion the other eight.
I After falling through tho ropes sev
eral times and being dropped twice for
tbo counts of nine, once in the first
round and again in the second, Referee
811m Brennan mado a decided hit ulth
everybody who remained by calling
"quite" in the fourth. Slim would
have made a bigger hit had he chased
tje "Stew" sooner.
,Nobody cared, but it was nnnounced
that Chaney nnd Stewart each bad
weighed in under 124 pounds.

referee's derision In a twelvo-round bout here
By SANDY McNIBUCK
In a few short years the personnel
of the Pennsylvania team In the Lesley
Cup match has completely changed.
The only veteran reft in tho play Sat
urday of the old Keystone Staters was
W. C. Fownes. the captain.
Captain "Bill" has gray hairs, but
he is liable to hold his place for a good
many seasons. He was scmlfinalist nt
the national last year, put out Boo
Gardner this year and has wou the
national title and the medal twice.
He qualified for the open this year
and had a round of 70. In a Pitts
burgh tourney this year, he ousted S.
P. Hcrron, thcu national champion.
Fownes lost his match to Jesse
Sweetser, New York, on Saturday at
Merlon, but only nfter extra 'holes of
r beautifully played motch. Swcctscr
won the intercollegiate championship
tills year and beat Ned Sawyer, the
metropolitan titlcholder, in the na
tional. He Is only eighteen years oW and a
fine typo of athlete who Is due to hold
hi place for many years, but he snu,
afterward at Merlon that Fownes was
ono of the hurdest players to beat he
had ever met.
Fownes has reduced golf to such a
science that he has constructed vnrlous
mechanical devices to test golf balls,
sticks and even strokes in his; effort
to apply the proper laws of mechanics
to the game.
With few exceptions the teams of
both Bostou uad New York aro com
posed of veterans who have probably
gone as far as they ever will at golf,
which Is pretty far up the ladder, of
course, but then if there's a turn its
more likely to be down than farther up.
Pennsylvania has the advantage of
a team of youngsters, for the most part,
capabln of malting their mark in the
car to come.
Ilerron is not likely to collapse very
soon and has played a champion's game
in most of bis starts.
Mars ton has been at the top for many
years, nnd Francis W. Kenible, though
not entering many tournaments fills'
year, is alsnys a capable golfer to con
sider. The rest of the team was mado uo
of young stars always battling in the
confidence of youth. Piatt, Hloffner
nnd Jack showed real qualities for
many future teams, n pace thy have
been holding for several seasons.
Reynolds is a veteran who was
though to have n fine chance to win
hut a tliirtv-foot nutt stroke displaced
by Peter Hormon. New York, was too
much to overcome In the last few
holes of plav.
Harmon, by the way, Is one of thp
promising young additions to the New
York team, and earned his place.
There were n few shots pulled the
lost day which deserve mention. After
Piatt ran n chip shot up dead to the
eighteenth. Gardiner White had a
tough one to makp under, tho Ircuni
tinncps nnd wnvered badly.
But he nhowcd real stuff when he
sank n five-foot putt nnd carried the
match to the nineteenth.
"Cool It Off"
As Plntt walked up to his second
slinr. nt this hole. George Ormiston.
standing there, spoke with wisdom:
"Lay it up there stoncy dead, lad
die, and cool off the match."
Which Piatt did. It was one of the
prettiest shots of the tourney, espe
cially nt that stage, and gave him a
3-blrd-hole match and Pennsylvania
Norman Mnxwell hit n beauty with
a straight-faced nildmashle from a trap
at thp tenth, where Reynolds, his part-
ucr, Had driven, rrom mac spni aiax
well laid the ball not two feet from tbe
pin on the bowl green, where he could
hcurccl.v see tho flag from where he
was. Reynolds sank the putt for u
bird, which always throws n chill over
tlie ardor ot tne opposition.
A weird shot was that mado by
Johnny Andcrbon against George Hoff
ncr. They were driving the thirteenth,
a short holo with water in frout of the
green. Anderson hit a low shot which
looked all wrong.
It hit plumb in the middle of the
water, but was going Ilko a flat stone,
and skidded on the green so close to
the piu that ho had a putt for a 2,
which he missed.

MIKE WHITEHILL will get into
Saturday's game for Penn against

showed no 111 effects after almost an
hour of tearing up nnd down the field.
His Injured ankle, which has kept him
on thp sldo lines the last two weeks, is
strong enough now to stand the strain of

preliminary training, Mike was in such
Pne condition after the first few days
that Coach Hclsmon ordered him to rest.
A few days before tbe return of the
team to Franklin Field Whltehlll
sprained his back and could hardly
throw the pigskin. When his back re
ttlrncd to normal he turned his ankle,
and bad to be assisted from the field.
This occurred two weeks ago and has
served to keep him on the sidelines for
the last fortnight. Yesterday was his
first nvl strenuous workout In three

With tho return of Whltcliill to tno
regular llncup there Is a strong possi
bility that Carl Thomas, acting captain,
will be shifted back to his old post at
tackle. Buck Wharton is the authority
for the statement that Thomas fs one of
the best tackles in the country. Thomas,
nifhnni-h out of position at fullback, has
shown his versatility by playing a great
gamo, botn offensively nnu ticiensiveiy.
He has developed into a punter of no
mean ability in less than a week, which
again shows Ms nn-arounu amuiy.
Dieter Lost ,
Tho return of Thomas to tho line may
bo necessary very soon, judging by the
nnnouncement made by Captain Bud,
Hopper last night. The genial Red and
Blue lender talked to Herb Dlctcr, tho
star guard of last year's eleven, over
the long-distance telephone last night In
an effort to find out why Dieter had not
returned to the University.
The former guard emphatically stated
to Hopncr that ho would not return to
Penn tuis year or nny j-eur, mui uo wu
Cochran a fact, especially tho first
named. Bud Hopper Is determined
that ho will bolster up the team.
Yesterday, with his Injured arm
tightly bandaged, Bud got into his
uniform nnd spent an hour romping
around the field. He ran n mile, ana
then Indulged in a signal drill to brush
up his memory on plays. After that he
caught short forward passes with bis
uninjured wing. If confidence and a
d-iirc to play count for anything Hop
per will be seen at bis old post this Sat
urday n week, when Lafayette makes
its annual pilgrimage to Franklin Field.
Yesterday was a day of rest for the
varsity men who played in Saturday's
game. All came out of the struggle
in good shape with the possible ex
ception of Roy Wallace, who subbed for
Hopper at end. Wallace received a se

with his brother. This was u Htuu m
ing blow to Hopper and the remainder
ot tho tenm last night, for Dieter, when
in the city lasc ween loin mu piiiyura
ti.nf iii would return to Penn nfter he
had cleared up his business affairs.

statement of Dlctcr said that he had
hoped to the last to have him on the
varsity team this year and tlint while
his loss was n severe one, ho would
iinvs tn mnkc the best of it.
Dieter is badly needed ut Penn tmrf
fall to bo tct up tnc line, ami nis loss
is more ncorcly felt than most out
siders can imagine. The coaches have
made no bones of the fact that they
expected to use the former Mnsten Park
Hfi.h School star in the line this year.
Cochran, tho big substitute guard of
last year, Is another man counted on
who is missing. Two weeks ngo Cochran
wired that he was leaving his home ,n
Nogales, Ariz., for this city to enter
tho University, but since that time
nothing has been heard from him, al
though Captain Hopper ami Munager
Ed. Vare havo wired and written to
n'letcr came to Penn in 1010 from
tho Masten Park High School, In Buf
falo. He had little trouble making
jack Keogh's eleven during, that full,
and when ho reported fnr the vursity tho
following year Buck Wharton, the lino
coach, sensing his ability nhnost from
the start, piaccu mm in tne varsity
line tho first day out. From then on
Dieter was a star. He plajrd his best
game in 1017. Last year he was him
dlcapped by Injuries n great part ot
the season, but plajed great football
when ln the game.
