paid a flying- visit to the college town,
reported to his boss that the fraternity
house which had been available during
the past three years could not be ob

Family of Gridironers Play on
Panhandle Eleven of Columbus
College football is one thing, and pro
fessional football Is another, and as the
two neer meet, comparisons cannot' be
drawn. Houerer, it Is doubtful if the
best college team in the country could
score a victory on the famous jPanhandle
team of Columbus, Ohio.
This team, composed of employees of
the Pennsylvania rtailraod In that city.
has made turae wonderful records In the
past sixteen years. The team was or
ganized in 1RSD by Joseph F. Carr, now
president ot the Ohio State Baseball
The six Nesser brothers who have
made fame nnd fortune playing on this
team are Germans by descent on both
sides of the family, their parents having
come to America from the Fatherland
far back In the early fifties. Today
they pride themselves on .saying that
although they are proud of their an
cestry there Is no hyphen In their Ameri
canism. They are plain American citizens
whose forbears dame from Germany.
The parents of this great family are
still living and although far advanced
in age enjoy the best of health. The
father is a bollermaker and follows his
craft dally. """
In addition to the members of the noted
family shown In the picture there are
two other boys and, two girls. The
entire family were born and reared in
Columbus. Ohio, and all of the boys
are employed by the Pennsylvania Kail-
road Company as bollermakers. None
of the Boys have had the advantage
of n college education, but all, have ap
plied themselves diligently.
Their activity In. football dates back

sufficient to play the gridiron game, but
the team has continued In existence and
as each of the boys grew to age and
size tn play on the team they were given
places until today all six of the .brothers
are playing regular positions.
In addition to their ability to play foot
ball the Nesser brothers are athletes in
almost every department of track and
field athletics.

of the team. In the star of the family on
the gridiron. He weighs 230 pounds. Col
lege coaches speak of his ability as a
player, and his work as coach has met
with many compliments at the hands ol
competent college men. He Is 31 years
of age and has a family of five children.
John, the oldest of the brothers, plays
quarter back on the team and has long
held the diamond medal or the fennayi
anla system for being the best all
around athlete In the employ of the com
pany. He has played on the Panhandle
tram constantly since Its organization
and although now close to 40 years of

championship track and field meet next

represented in the Middle Western Con
ference, but the Invasion promised In
1916 will be the first attempt of this
university to win laurels on the Atlantic
In addition to taking part in the
championships, a dual meet will be ar
ranged if possible with cither Yale or
Harvard, but the main object of the
Callfornlans in coming East will be to
make as good a showing as possible In
the intercollegiate championships.
Several of the Stanford team hold
national fame on the cinder path. Fred
Murray, who captured the high and low
hurdles In the recent A. A. U. senloi
championships, still Is eligible and is ex
pected to run under 34 seconds In the
hurdles and endanger1 the 15 1-6 mark
over the high sticks. His teamate,
Johnny Norton, runs almost even 'with
the national champion. Capt, Rlc
Templeton is an all-round performer.
He is good for about 33 feet-In the broad
Jump, can better the six-foot mark in the
high jump, has run the high hurdles
under IS 4-5, while he -can pole vault
close tothe 13-foot mark.
Paul Wilson, the mller who has cap
tured first place In his .favorite event
during the past few seasons against
California, Is capable of bettering the
4 JO mark. Wilson now- holds the Stanford-California
record and he has never
been pressed. He may be expected to
give the best of the East a tussle. In
the field Reg Caughey, who puts the
shot .over the 45-foot mark, will show
the way to some of the Eastern talent,

It was his work as guard that first
gave college coaches In the Middle

guard position were better than heavy

He is also a professional baseball play

274 pounds, and can do the 100 yards in
less than eleven i-eronds. He can punt a
football farther and higher than any
man in the Middle West. As a plunging

Garry Herrmann Claims that
Peace Wfll Make No Differ
ence in Ruling in Vogue.
Cincinnati, Dec. 14. Tho Chicago Na
tionals and the St. Louis Americana are
exempUuntll the year UTT from that pro
vision under which organized baseball Is
now working, limiting the number of
players of each team oa the 30th of May
of each year.
This Is part ot the baseball peace agree
ment that was signed here, according to
August Herrmann, chairman of the Na
tional Commission. Mr. Herrmann made
this announcement last night when told
that Harry Sinclair, one of the Federal
League peace conferees, had stated that
there would be no player limit In base
ball next year.
In the National League the number of
players limited-to a team U twenty-one
while in the American League the limit
la fixed at twenty-five.
"Owing to the combination and amal
gamatlon of two clubs In the Federa
League to a club m the National and
one In the American League we consld
ered it unjust to ask those clubs to dis
pose of what would naturally be con
sldered a Urge number of players," said
Mr. Herrmann.
"I cannot say accurately." Mr. Herr
man ndded. "but I estimate that with
the Chicago Cubs absorbing the Chicago
Federals and the St. Louis Browns tak
ing in the SL Louis Federals, eacn oi
these clubs will have close to fifty play
ers at the present time.
"It wouM he unjust to ask them to dis
pose of such a large number as would be
necessary In order to cut down to the
limit under which organized baseball is
now working. Therefore, we gave them
until 1S1T to dispose of the surplus play
When asked If any or all clubs in the
major leagues would be exempt from the
limit or the rule would be abrogated until
W17. Mr. Herrmann said "absolutely no.
Continuing. Mr. Herrmann said:
'The other fourteen teams of the major
leagues will go along in the same man
ner and observe the limit. In so far as I
know, there Is no movement on foot to
do away with the limit rule. In the opin
ion of all baseball men. it Is an excellent
rule, but circumstances made it necessary
to give the new prospective owners of
the Chlcaeo Cubs and the St. Louis
Browns a fair chance to dispose of their
surplus players."
With the departure or rresiaent jonn
K. Tener. of the National league, for
New York late today all outward ap
pearances of the signing of a treaty of
peace between organised baseball and the
Federal League disappeared, and quiet
once more reigned around the National
Commission's headquarters here. With

Several conferences between these men
and August Herrmann, chairman of, the
National Commission, were held today,
but at the conclusion of each the state
ment was made that there was noth
ing to announce: that the conferences
were taken up entirely in discussing the
; various events of the last few days.
I It is probable, however, that a large
number of the men who have been in
town to attend the peace meeting will re
turn here on January 3, when the Na
tional Baseball Commission holds Its an
nual meeting. The committee appointed
to thresh out the differences between
the Federal and International Leagues
will, also meet here at that time, while
the day following'. January 4. is the date
set for Charles P. Taft to return from
the hunting trip in Texas, and it Is not
improbable that the negotiations look

The two former Cub "stars, who were
cast adrift from the once famous Cub
machine when the cogs started to slip,

This, said Charles Weeghman. Is a
reward for their Jump from Organized

Richmond, Va.. Dec 24. Richmond will
not. according to the Information here,
lose her berth In the( International
Leagire. jack Dunn came here a year
ago and brought the remnants of his old
Baltimore team, and. while the season
was not by any means satisfactory, the
people of Richmond patronized the game
far better than several of the cities al
ready In the league, and if Dunn keeps
his promises and the lovers of the game
here have every confidence in him, the
success of the league so far as this city
Is concerned, is fixed.
Richmond hopes to have Baltimore in
the league so that the interest between
the two cities would Increase and serve
to bring out the biggest crowds. It Is
known that the old State League Is anx
ious to have Richmond again enter that
old organization, but Richmond will not
be content to have a part in the national
game on the plane that can and "will be
