CLASH AGAINST NA VY
Service Game at Franklin
Conflict With Yale-Harvard, Lafayette-Lehigh
and Haver ford-Sivarthmere Football Classics
Hy H011ERT V. -.LVXWELL
ScerM Editor I-enlna; Public I.ed-er
" (fpHE Army Navy football game will return te Philadelphia next fall and the
If cltl-ens of our fair city ere taking this news with enthusiasm, or words
i'ethat effect. Pennsylvania is nil het up ever It, nnd Franklin Field will he
renovated, dry cleaned nnd pressed for the oeraslen. lt is expected thnt the
rebuilding of the Mnnds will be completed by October t. and with extra scats
cloWte 00,000 spectators can be nccommednted.
The Increased capacity of the Held is the factor that enabled the lied and
Blue authorities te reclaim the classic. West Point always is in favor of
itaglhg the same In New Yerk at the Pole Grounds, because of the com cem
pa'ratlvelv short run down the Hudsen te the big town. The Xnvy, however.
had the choice this season, and the Middies, being anxious te escape long land
Journeys, picked Frankliu Field, new that the capacity has been raised te
(jual the Pole Grounds.
'' The dnte of the contest has been set for Saturday, November 2.". This Is
atranga and unusual, for the service struggle invariably is stnged en the
Saturday following, net preceding. Thanksgiving Day. This means thnt
Tale nnd Harvard will have a big rival nttrnctien en the day of their annual
engagement and se will Swnrthmore-Haverferd nnd Lehigh-Lafayette. Tn
ether words, the nttenlien of the foetbnll public in this city will be divided
among four hcndllnerc.
Four years age the officials of the two Government academies entered Inte
a five.-year ngreement. It doesn't tekr a figger-filbert te dope out that the
contract expires nt the end of this coming reason. The point we want le
bring out, however, is that a clause of the agreement stated that in easj'
tie Saturday following Thanksgiving Day falls In December, either institution
can Insist en the game being played in November, and get nway with it.
r Thanksgiving Day is November "0 this year, se thnt the circumstances
havcarisen for the first time since the signing of the pepers and West Point
requested that the contest be waged en November T. The Navy held out for
. December 2, but was out of luck. Already the Cadets have wen that part of
the 1022 nrgument.
t The Army-Navy game always has been the climax of tl;e collegiate foot
ball season The conches nnd players from colleges nil ever the Hast fleck
te, the contest. The appearance of the Cadets and Middies for yenrs has been
considered the final clete-un before the last fade-out nnd will lese some of
Its color in this respect if played en November 25, with se many rival at
tractions and the big gnmes of Thanksgiving Day te fellow. The Array
should reconsider and put the game in its accustomed place. Franklin Field
will be available en December 2. as well as November 23.
THE four big games scheduled for Xereniber 2e tclll te played nt
stadiums icith a total seating capacity of close te 150,000. All
t of which means that if you're lucky you should be able te purchase
a ticket for ene of the four garnet.
' Lafayette Deserved Veterans' Trophy
I(i'A'FATETTE COLLEGE has been awarded the football championship uf
1 ,the East for 1021 nnd received a silver loving cup. cmblcmntic of thnt
championship, from the Veteran Athletes of Philadelphia. Thus the Kastern
Institution has something te prove thnt its football eleven went through the
easen without a defeat and ranked close te the top In the final averages.
' Selecting a championship team at the close of the season is merely n
matter of opinion. The undefeated elevens have the call and Penn State.
Lafayette, Washington nnd Jeffersen nnd Cernell were eligible. State played
the hardest schedule, playing most of the gnmes nway from home, defeated
Qeprgla Tech and the Navy and tied Ilarrard and Pittsburgh. It took a
geed team te get away with a list of games like that. Waohingten nnd
TeSersen had n much better team than any one cspcctcd. The victory ever
I$tt was the outstanding feature of the season, but the best work was done
, , Greasy Ncale's team defeated the strong Detroit College aggregation in
Detroit' and then traveled te the Ceat, where California was held te a score
leas tie. Taking it all in all, the Western game was the greatest accom
plishment. Traveling across the Continent docs net help a football team and
this, with the change in climate and ttrange surroundings, created a handicap
tha only a geed team could overcome. Therefore, W. nnd .1. stauds out al
one, of the best elevens of the year.
Cernell also was geed, but the two bright spots were the Dartmouth and
Penn games. The ether teams en the schedule were weak, and the Ithacans
did net have an opportunity te show the real strength of the team.
. It was. the sa.ine. with Lafayette. The hardest game was plavcd en
October 2, when Pittsburgh was defeatpd. After that Dickinsen, Kuckncll.
Terdham, Itutgers, Penn, Delaware and Lehigh were played, and it was a
ahame that harder opponents could net be procured. The Maroen nnd Whit'e
had the strongest rush line in the country and the backfield also was power
ful. The team wns well coached and there is no doubt that it could have
held' Ha own with any of the undefeated eleven?.
, The Veteran Athletes did net make a mistake in presenting the cup te
Lafayette. Personally, we favored Penn State, with' Lafayette second; but as
ywaa aaid before, that is only a matter of opinion. The veterans figured that
Pitt was beaten. C te 0, and State and Pitt played a O-te-0 tie. That
aeemed te give the Eastenlans the edge.

Then we remembered. Jee Brown was a ball player, nnd in 1010 was in
Tampa with the Red Sex. Strange aa It may seem, he was n geed player
However, the lure of the stage was stronger than that of the diamond and
also the weekly envelope was much healthier, te say nothing of stronger. He

Jee was at the ripe old age of seventeen when he horned Inte the
American Association as a second baseman. He had been playing nil ever
the country witli a circus team, ns he had been following that line of work
since he was ten years old, and seemed te like it. He used te go with the
circus In the summer and go te school In the winter.

By SANDY MvXIKLICK
THIS UK are few branches of golf

mere interest since their inception than
the various green f-octleiiK. It is es
timated that national branch, instituted
by the United Stntes (!elf Association,
has bared the clubs nenrly a quarter

this amount will continue te Increase.
Ne work of the local district asso

' A dinner was given at which greens
chairmen of nearly all the local clubs
I were present. It developed into a club.
1 of which Mr. Klklns was made chlet
, and several meetings have been held.
Last season the members held a
tournament, which was also an in- '
duccment te bring out n solid line-up
te view competition between various
mewlnc nnd ether golf course machines
as well as te hear n lecture by famous 1
I experts. Members left this session fired i
