touchdown, which gave the Gunners
*.he count by 7 to 0.

Tard completely outplayed the Doc
tors. In the first half the Gun Fac
tory made seven first downs while
the Medicos gained one- In the sec
ond half. Gunners gained ten first
3owns, while all the Medicos could do
was to get two. a run by Huger of
yards and another by Dunn of 10
yards.
The Naval Gun Factory caught a
punt in midfield and started a march
down the field by short gains on ofT
tackle plays. But were halted by
Medicos when on the 5-yard line. Mc
Brlde was given the ball on an at
tempt to plough through between
tackle and end, fumbled, and Sey

best chance the Southeast boys had to
score In the first half.
Medicos were never within striking
diatance of the Naval Gun Factory's
goal. In the first period l>urm tried a
drop-kick from the 25-yard line, but

side scoring. Although both teams
worked hard to gain the covetcd
points to settle the argument
in the third period Medicos' line
began to tire and after hammering

DECISION OVER MEEHAN
San Francisco. Nov. 17.?Fred FuTon.
aspirant for the heavy-weight crown,
who was knocked out by Jack Demp
?ey. last night won the decision from
Willie Meehan. conqueror of I>empsey.
In a four-round go In the Exposition
Auditorium. Fulton was give-n the
decision by Referee Tim Griffin and
the capacity house, most of whom
found little room to dispute the de
cision of the referee.
Fulton won by a mile. He ham
mered and slugged Meehan at will,
but was not able to land a knockout.
Meehan put up his usual game, ag
gressive fight, but his heavier op
ponent was too strong for him.
The fight was staged for the benefit
of the War Camp Community Fund.
It was a battle royal from the tap
of the gong until the close of the
last round.

ENGLISH PLAN FOR
BASEBALL LEAGUE
j London. Nov. 17.?It <s proposed in
various sporting circles In England to
organize a baseball league to be op
erated necc rprii g and summer. The
came h ? iaue rapid strides since
I the arrival o# C&nadip.n troops here
early ir- the v>r, and especially sine*
the ct.ml g of rhe Americans.
The n?? is r.ow plavnd by Engliph
team* n prefer"?ce to clcct. Tim
is particularly true in barracks,
where the British soldiers have been
?n constant contact with the Amer
icans.
It is pointed out that there will
be many Canadian and American sc#l
[diers in England during the coming
spring nnd summer, unable to re
turn to their homes in Canada and
| the States. It is felt *Jiat the pres
i ence of those playcrj will give the
game a tremendous "b^ost" here.

tion restoring to good standing those
j athletes who threw in their lot as
j athletic instructors or directors for
i nele Sam's boys In France will be
up for consideration.
Kller Is now outside the pale of
A. A U. law. He has accepted money
for his duties as an instructor over
jseas. which means capitalizing his
I athletic prowess. This automatically
makes him a professional along with
la great many other athletes who be
fore the war were amateurs. The
passage of the resolution is predicted
however so that all these athletes
will again be entitled to compete as
; amateurs with their withdrawal from

An Hour Spent in Saddle
Puts Executive in Good
Physical Condition.
Philadelphia. Nov. 17.-It has been
the subject of general comment that
President Wilson Is today in better
physical condition than when the war
broke out. He has been enabled to
withstand the strain because his sys
tem has been fortified by a regular
campaign of exercise, chief of which
hs" bf>en horseback riding.
When the President took up hi*
abode at the White House he was
known as a good walker and a fair
golfer. Under the tutelage of his per
sonal physician. Admiral Cary T.
Grayson, he has become a horseman
of no mean ability, and nearly every
morning finds him in the saddle for
an hour or more.
The matter of securing a suitable
mount for the President was not easy
A horse that was safe and had a good
gait at the walk, trot and canter was
the type sought, and Admiral Gray
son, who is an accomplished horse
man, finally found the animal he
wanted in Virginia in the region of
Front Royal, where the Federal gov- j
ernment has for some years had one
of its experimental stations for horse
breeding.
The horse in question, which is no*v j
known as Democrat, is 6 years old.
He is a son of the famous thorough-.,
bred sire Octagon, which Maj. Au- j
gust Belmont, chairman of the Jockey
Club, pave to the United States gov
ernment when the Front Royal sta- I
tion was established* Octagon Was a
son of the French sire Rayon d'Or,
and his dam was Ortegal. by the re
nowned English stallion Ben d'Or.
It is a coincidence that the charger
of the late Earl Kitchener was named
also Democrat. He was a famous
racer and was foaled in New Jersey,
the property of the late Pierre Loril
lard.
PROPOSE TO LIMIT
? NUMBER OF PLAYERS
' Chicago, Nov. 17.?Eighteen players
; will be sufficient to win a major
| league pennant next year if baseball
is resumed and the recommendations
| agreed on at a meeting of the Na
tional Baseball Commission here today
are accepted by the American and
[ National leagues at their annual
I meetings next month.
i President Johnson, of the American
League, and August Herrmann, chair
man of the commission were partici
| pants in the conference' which had to
I do with some left-over commission
cases, in addition to a discussion of
| the methods necessary to restore
j baseball in 1919.
The commission decided to inflict
| severe fines on three members of the
world championship team for playing
! exhibition games through the East
I after the worlds series, with a team
; advertised as the Boston Red Sox.
Amos Strunk, Joe Bush and W*alter
,Schanp were the players declared to
I be eruilty of the practice.
? The decision to withhold the usual
: worlds series championship emblems
j from the Boston players because of
j the part they played in the worlds
; series "strike" was reaffirmed.
LARRY CHAPPELLE DEAD.
Old-Time Ball Player Dies Victim
of "Flu."
Philadelphia# Nov. 17.?"Larry Chap
pelle, a former major league baseball
star, and for whose release from the
I Milwaukee Club Charlie Comiskey, of
j the White Sox, paid $15,000 several
years ago, succumbed to influenza at
; an army camp near San Francisco,
inccordine to advices reaching here
last night. His home is in Jersey
| ville. 111.
Chappelle played last season with
? Joe Tinker's Columbus Club in the
i American Association. Previous to
1 joining the White Sox he had played
in the American Association. His
purchase at the tfme was one of the
record deals of baseball, but he failed
to live up to expectations in the
American League. Chappelle has many
friends here who will be grieved to
learn of his death. Funeral arrange
ments are not known.
He Was a Demon, But
Norfolk Didn't Miss
.
Baltimore. Nov. 17.?They dug up a
fellow to box Kid Norfolk in Bridge
port the other night. A bi?, dusky
demon, he said he was, and he even
insisted on dressing in Norfolk's quar
ters in order to announce Just what
was coming to Norfolk.
"Git out of dis dressing room or
I'll fan yoah chin," threatened Nor
1 folk.
"Ah'll jess bet you 100 bucks dat
you'll do no chin fannin' eider in dis
room or out in de ring. Ah hab de
hundred men right chere. and Ah H
be de stake holder," said the demon.
All hands repaired to the ring and
the d^mon was floored with the first
punch. As he got up he kissed his
right gloved fist and said:
"To Keed Norfolk, with mah ebbeh,
ebbeh lovin' re-gards."
And the demon swung. And the
demon missed. And the demon passed
from this world to the land of dreams
where pink cows and lavender btras
( abound.
Norfolk had not missed!

Schools Have Commenced

Basket-ball.
The basket ball season will get a"
early start. at the high and prepara
I tory schools have not taken up foot- j
' ball with the exception of Western
and Central, who may play a couple
of games. All the schools have started
preliminary practice and the coaches
will be able to get a good line on
their material in plenty of time to
have their teams going in mid-season
form by the time they are called to
the scratch for their first champion
ship match.
The big fellows, the colleges, will
not start practice until along about
December 1. but managers and coaches
are already tiguring on the moMt
likely looking material for their re
spective teams. Coach John O'Reilly'
has lost all of his last year's all-star
team, but John is not worrying about j
that as he has a large squad of new'
men who. although practically un- j
known in this section, have enrolled ,
at the Hilltop, bearing laurels of many
victorious battles In the caged arena.
There is one thing certain, the Hin-i
toppers will never be able to replace!

BAN JOHNSON
WRONG AGAIN
Apparently the Lessons of
War Have Passed Over
Executive's Head.
New York. Nov. 17.?Apparently
the lessons of the world war have
entirely passed over the head of
Ban Johnson. That emperors, ciars.
kings, dictators and their ilk are no j
longer popular with the masses of (
any country appears to be lost on j
the American League executive who 1
looks to be attempting to grind the :
major leagues of this country under I
tne Iron heel of autocratic baseball |
power. For years the minors nave
been chafing under the inlusticeofj
the draft rule and now when th<y
plan to start up again and throw |
off the galling yoke. Johnson, ac- ,
cording to reports, serves notice on j
them that they will either go along
under the rules framed by the Nn-?
tlonal Commission or the big fellows .
will withdraw their s'tpport and
thus drive the minor leagu? a to thej
wall. That the minors are neces
sary to the big fellow, there can
hardly be a doubt. Few player, in
the majors but Nave had their train
ing In the bushes; but what these
small organisations complain most
of is that having developed player,
they do not want their teams an
nually shot to pieces to build up the
majors at a draft price that in no
way pays them for the trouble and
expense of developing the men. The
minor, are perfectly willing that
their players should advance into
the big ring, but they want open
competition In the bidding for their
services, want to get adequate re
turn for the months spent In season
ing the raw material and not have
major league magnates look over
their teams and put in an Arbitrary
claim to their services at a ridic
ulously low price. It practically
means that every season the min^r
league clubs must scour the coun
try for talent to fill the gaps made
by the majors and the financial re
turns of the draft often prove in
sufflctent to recompense them for
the time and trouble in building up
new team.
In view of the uncertainty sur
rounding the national game Johnson
would do well to go slow Just at the
present time. The vacillating action
of the American league executive
at the beginning and during the
war; the backing up of a club mem
ber in repudiating a declalon of the
National Commission that forced a
National Lieague president into re
tirement because he would not sit
on a court that would permit one of
it. signatory member, to wilfully
disregard Its rulinit. are too fresh In

PLEASANT OUTLOOK
FOR THOROUGHBREDS
II New York. Nov 17.?With th* vic
tory and pf&ce following the wor'd
war, lovers of horses, and especially
of the thoroughbred, may well con
gratulate one another on .the great
| things in store for the American
thoroughbred, sava tne New York
Telegraph. In the war it was cav
alry raids that routed the Turks,
as well as to drive back the Huns
o<? the Western front. This country
hai been depleted of horse* fit l'or
cavalry remounts, and the United
Statos government has recognised the
need of the improvement of the breed
of horses by acquiring thoroughbred
stallions of the very highest type
and placing them upon government,
breeding farms. In the years to
(come the United States will have a
higher type of horse for every pur
pose.
Especially are the owners of race
horses to be congratulated for today
their racers have advanced in value
probably 50 per cent more over what
they may have been considered worth
a week before the end of the con
flict. The reason for this is that
the millionaire owners, who were in
the sport for the sport to be had out
of it, rather than for profit, will
now be encouraged to purchase most
liberally of the best to be had.
It is now assured that racing will
be resumed in Canada next season,
for the sport was only discontinued
for the duration of the war, and
may open automatically.

"Let Em Off" to the entire crew!
that crowded the Gayety Theater yes- j
terday when Fred Irwin presented this
number "Let Everyone Out." This
show far surpassed everything that
been presented to date at the
Ninth street house.
The Big Irwin Show belongs to the )
type of musical extravaganza in which
the piot is a decided minor considera
tion. Pretty girls, tuneful music and
brilliant stage settings predominate. I
It is composed of two acts with se*- I
eral scenes to each act Several vaude- !
ville specialties were introduced
The cast is one of the best that has '
been seen in the Columbia circuit this !
year. It Includes Virginia Irwin, who
has a pleasing personality, and a
voice that she uses to good advan
tsge In the numbers allotted to her.
The other women members of the big
cast are Hilda Bertin. Margsrate
Shane. Bertha Comins and Rutheda
Barnett. The comedians are ITarry
Conley and Earnest Fisher.
The chorus is an important adjunct
to the 6how.
