THE WASHINGTON HERAtD. SUNDAY. DECEMBER 6, 1914.
Jim Barron Is the Choice for Georgetown's Football Captain Next Fall
Georgetown Awards G's
To Elect Leader Today
Barron and Petritz Candi
dates for 1915 Football
22 MEN ARE HONORED
The executive board of the Georgetown
Athletic Association yesterday awarded
football G"s to twenty-two members of
this season's squad as follows: Capt
Freddie Murray, Manager O'Boyle, Gorm
ley, Foley. Calnan. Barron, Ward, Man
lum, Noark. Petritx, Kelley. Corcoran.
Golden. Campbell. Wetaaer, Cronln, Fltl
rerald, Cusack. Pauxtls. McCarthy, Lan
dreau, and Crowe.
These G men will mobilise at the col
lege this afternoon and elect a captain for
1915, and there is considerable specula
tion aa to the outcome.
It appears that there are two candi
dates in the field tor the office of foot
ball leader next year Jimmy Barron,
the South Boston boy who played guard
for three years, and John Petritx, the
Petritx was on the football squad four
ears ago. and It is claimed played in
oae or two games thereby being Inelll
gible for the varsity eleven next fall,
owing to the four-year rule at present in
It is understood that Petritx Intends to
return and enter one of the graduate
schools, but football status has not been
clearly established and until Father Em
mett, faculty athletic adviser decides this
question, Petritx will hardly be in a posi
tion to present himself as a candidate.
Father Emmett stated last night that
hs had not reached a decision as he had
been unable to spare the time to look
iver the college records. His answer is
expected this morning.
If Petritx is declared eligible, he will
oppose Jim Bairon and the vote should
be close. Harry Kelley. the full back,
is also eligible and may decide to enter
the leadership race.
Indications point to the election of Bar
ron, the hard-working guard.

Cause of Losing Title
Washington and Jefferson Eleven Would Have Won the
Championship Had Patterson Stayed in
New York, Dec. l.-A litUe Bash of tam

Washington and Jefferson team was
beaten out of the greatest honor that
could come to It the undisputed cham
pionship of the Eastern football world.
It's a story that reada a bit Ilka tic-

And its pathetic side. too. for the man

of the championship by Washington and
Jefferson feels it gs keenly ss one can.
Washington ana Jefferson played eleven

victims. So waa the stroag University
nt W. A J. waa outplaying Harvard.
The score waa 0-0 and W. A J. waa on
1U wsy toward the Harvard goal. When
Patterson was ruled out of the game a
substitute had to take his place and Har
vard took advantage of that fact.
Earlier in the game Harvard sent a
number of plays against Patterson, and
Patterson threw each of them back for
losses. Harvard triad other plays
against the W. 4 J. line but each failed
to bring about any material gains. But
when a substitute went In foj W. ft J.
In Patterson's place Harvard aimed Its
attacks at the substitute tackle and the
route to a Harvard victory was clear.
Harvard broke through the one weak

for gains. It finally smashed Its way
Southpaw Golf Experts Have Never
Captured a National
It has been figured out by a golf expert
with a leaning toward statistics that the
left-handed man figures three in every
hundred players. Also that there never
has be-n a good left-handed player In
this country; that is, one who has won a
national championship. Now it isn't sd
much that the southpaw doesn't get the
knack of the game as well as the right
handed man. It is, perhaps, that the
odds are against him. He is simply
wampd by players who swing accord
ing to Hoyle.
There Isn't any more reason why a
left-hander shouldn't shine at that game
than there Is in baseball. It just hap
pens, perhaps, that no man who plays
eft-handed has taken the game up as
seriously as Jerry Travers and the rest
f the sharp-shooters-
It is foolish for him to believe that it
.s harder fur him to learn the game
quicker, for Fotn'1 reason or other, and

and they are always made to appear

Harvard and Yale, as represented at
the clubs of the respective colleges In
this city, do not look with favor on
the proposition for an "intercollegiate

the recently organized Collegiate Bow
ing Association, It It means abandon
ment ol the New London race. Con
sensus st both clubs may be tersely
put in this wsy, as voiced by one of
the veteran oarsmen of Yale, and in
dorsed by the Harvard men who heard
him express himself:
"Harvard-Yale races on the water are
purely family affairs The contests have
been bequeathed to the colleges by the
fathers of rowing at both Institutions.
We do not care a row of pins whether
Cornell. Columbia, Syracuse. Wisconsin,
Pennsylvania. Princeton, or Annapolis can
beat the winner of the race between the
two crews that represent these old New
England universities by a yard or a half
mile. There is no question of cham
pionship involved, and we are perfectly
willing that the winner of the annual
race on the Hudson Biver or of the
suggested collegiate Henley shall be
called tbe champion crew of the year. It
may be poor sportsmanship from the
popular point f view and probably Is.
Let It go at that.
"Yale and Harvard graduates as a
crew representing their particular unl
ersity shall do to the other crew In I
successive years. Ours is s traditional '
rivalry handed drown from father to son.
and we hope may pass on to our grand
sons. Every true Yale man wants to
see his crew beat the Harvard crew each
year, and every true Harvard man wants
tbe rowing scalp of Yale each year.
"We are not opposed to a collegiate
Henley If the rowing men in the univer
sities want It. But we do strenuously
object to any step that shall put a stop
