Long Forward Passes Bring
-Victory Before Big Throng
Great Crowd in Stadium Thrilled by Brilliant
Heaving of Capt. Rauber's Eleven;
Tech-Gets Two Goals,
Central today rests on the highest pmnaclf of interschotastic football
here. ?
Dazzling their opponents and thrilling the throng by one of the most
brilliant and scintillating exhibitions of an atrial offensive ever wit
nessed on a Washington field, the Central players yesterday downed
Tech by 12 to 6 in their annual game at the E. M. Wilson stadium,
the triumph being tantamount to the title.
Twenty years a go the schools*

Wilhelm Is Through
As Manager.
Hugo Bezdek may become the man
ager of the Phillies to succeed Kai
ser Wilhelm, who took the helm in
1921. after Bill Donovan was
bounced as pilot by the lowly
Quakers. At State College tonight
I'.ezdek. who is roach of the Penn
State football team, refused to dony
or affirm a report in circulation that j
he is to supplant Wilhelm.
Despite this refusal to confirm or
deny. Bezdek has talked the matter
r?v, r with Wi'liam B. Baker, presi
dent of the National League club.
In fact, the coach of Penn State
_left Washington last Friday directly
after the game with the Navy and
rame to this city.
President * Baker admitted to
night over the long-distance tele
phone from New York that Wilhelm
was through as the Phillies* man
ager. The Phillies* president re
fused to say who was to succeed
Wilhelm. simpty paying he was com
ing to this city tomorrow to reopen
tiif* i-ltsb office for the winter. When
asked if It was Bexdek or Art

would be given out later.

Tennis Champion Says He May
Defend Title Despite Loss

championships even though minus
a finger and convinced he "hasn't
a chance In 10.000 to win."
The "big fellow" sat propped up
with pillows on his cot at the Ger
mantown Hospital today and talked
j dispassionately about his chances
I of retaining his linger and his title.
I He was pessimistic about both, but
"I am going to lose the first Joint
of the middle finger of my right
hand/' he said. "It will in all
probability affect my stroke, but it
will not worry me a bit if I cannot
retain the championship title. Just

Surgeons are endeavoring to save
the finger. It would have been am- !
putated long ago, save that every
one realized how vital It was to
Tilden's playing. The tip and nail
already have been removed. The
linger is gangrenous and loss of the
first Joint is almost certain by the
end of the week.
The champion's principal concern
is that the title remain in this
country, and he says he is not
worried about this.
"I do not fear foreign competi
tion." he explained. "American pos

The evenness of performance so often re
marked in Dodge Brothers Motor Cars is
due, in no small part, to the thoroughness
with which each unit is inspected during
the process of manufacture and assembly.
A trained staff of 800 experts is employed
in this work alone, and approximately 5285
individual inspections are made on each car.
So exacting and rigid are the standards ap
plied to these inspections that the slightest
variation either in workmanship or ma
