Paul Jones Says Brown University
Lad Will Break Becords.
NEW YORK. October 28-^John Paul
Jones, the holder of the world's amateur
record for running one mile, is not given i
to talking very much, but, like meet men
who are non-oommunicative. the great 1
Cornell runner is well listened to when
he does say something. Jones has told ]
yiviuimciii. xvm sponsmsm some*
thing: that Is of great Interest to followers
of athletic**. He virtually admitted
that he expects to be defeated in the In- <
tercolleglate one-mile championship next <
spring. In a casual conversation recent- 1
ly. Jones told the gentleman mentioned
above that he believed that Norman
Tabor of Brown University is the greatest
runner in the world at the mile. The
Cornell star declared that as yet Tabor '
l?as not found himself. "When that fellow
learns to run as he should run," said
Jones, "you won't hear anything more
about any Joneses, Kivi&ts or Jack sons."

FIRST BIG GAME
WILLBEPLAYED
Saturday, When Harvard and
Princeton Meet in Championship
Conflict.
i itti c mccrptnurc
BETWEEN TWO TEAMS
Princeton Appeared to Have
Margin Until Harvard Beat
Brown So Decisively.
. BY H. C. BYBD.
The first championship foot ball game
>f the year will take place this week.
Princeton will meet Harvard in one of
the first contests to determine the relative
strength of the big elevens and the
supremacy for 1912.
Whether or not the Tigers will repeat
their success of 1911 is a problem. There
is not the least question about their havJ?g
shown greater strength than last season,
though. The big scores which
Princeton has been running up on the
>ther elevens of recognized caliber would
SDDear to nlaro it nn a nlano nhnvo thA
standard of both Yale and Harvard, but
t must be called to mind that the last
nentioned schools seldom develop the
vonderful scoring ability in the early
season games that does the former.
Princeton has a wonderful scoring mashine;
of that there is no question. It
lias tallied many more points than its
two big rivals, and has shown a consistent
attack and defense all season. The
irushing defeat meted out to Syracuse,
followed by the humiliation of Dartmouth,
is strong enough evidence that
the team which keeps its goal line from
Deing crossed by the Tigers will have to
liave a powerful defense, one stronger
than appears to exist at present.
The decisive victory won over Michigan
>y Syracuse shows just about how strong
Mnceton really is, especially so when
t Is considered that the Tigers tallied
nore than HO points on an eleven which
lefeated the big western eleven by two
ouchdowns.
Of course, there is no denying that Harvard
also has a powerful combination. It
las probably an even more capable eleven
han represented it last fall. It has been
cored on more than Princeton, but then
hat may be due to the fact that it has '
net stronger opponents. Brown tallied
en points against the Crimson in Satirday's
contest, while Dartmouth scored ;
?Ut once pu. Princeton. On the other
land Harvard scored more against Brown
han Princeton did against Dartmouth.
Vhether or not Brown or Dartmouth is
he stronger is problematical.
It has been the consensus of opinion
hat the Harvard defense is a little
itrongev than that of Princeton, but that ;
he Princeton offense is more fully developed
than that of its rival. If that is 1
rue then it is probable that Harvard will
rork to improve its offense during the
resent week, while Princeton will pay
ipecial attention to the building of a de'ense
capable of withstanding the hamnering
plunges of Brickley, Wendell and
dardwick. The fact that these men were
ible to pierce theline of the Brown
ileven for thirty points, caused the Crimton
stock to go soaring, especially when
t is figured that Brown must be excepinnollir
c*f I ?? ?? ? M
.u?<uij ouuug v3 no Having ttun iroui
Pennsylvania by a wide margin.
All other games will be thrown in the
ihadow by that of Saturday. Whatever
he merits of the two elevens, or the relaive
strength of their two styles of the
>lay, the contest will be well worth wltlesslng,
and the game itself Is not likely
o be one-sided. A close, hard contest
nay be expected, with Princeton laboring
o stop the continued rushes of three of
he best line plungers in the country and
he Harvard defense put to every reiQUrce
to stop the speedy runs of what
s probably the fastest backfleld in the
:ountry.
Pennsylvania Is again spending the
kfonday In trying to figure out how it
lappened. The Quakers are not having a
*ery easy time of it now, despite the
>rllliancy with which they started their
;arly-season contests. It was thought
hat Penn would have a wonderful eleven
his fall, to judge by what it was doing
n its preliminary games, but Just the
>pposite has taken place, and it is havng
a hard time making a respectable
ihowing against the so-called secondary
devens.
Cornell got away a little better last
veek against the Bucknell team, In that
t won and kept its goal line from being
:rossed, even if it was only against a
earn of mediocre caliber, as compared
with the other big schools. It would
seem that some improvement is being
shown at Ithaca, despite the severe earlyteason
disappointments.
That game Thanksgiving day is going
:o make either a successful or a very
jloomy season for either Cornell or Pennlylvania.
The Quakers, if they win from
Cornell, will have their poor showing in
he other games to a certain extent
itoned for, but If they lose to the Itha;ans,
then somebody is going to be disjruntled
and a new coaching system will
>e Installed as surely as there will be a
loot ball team next year. On the other
land, the same status of affairs prevails
it Cornell. If the Ithacans are able to
win from Penn Thanksgiving day they
will consider that they have accomplished
a great deal, because Cornell victories
over Penn have not been any too
plentiful. Ii Cornell loses Thanksgiving
lay then it is more than possible it will
pe casting about next year for another
ihange In its coaching system.
The showing made by Gallaudet against
the Norfolk Blues was exceptional and
surprising. The Kendall Greeners defeated
by 20 to 0 a team which held Virginia
to one touchdown. That would seem to
Indicate that the Gallaudet has a strong
er eieven man was tnought when It was
made known that Baltimore City College
had run up 22 points on it.
It will be notea that the victory at Norfolk
was accomplished by the Gallaudet
team with several of Its regulars out of
the game. Just how strong it will be
against the elevens in its class with its
full line-up in the play may be judged.
M. A. C.. Washington College and the
other teams in that class will have to
watch out if they do not want to meet
defeat at the hands of the Kendall Green
aggregation.
This Washington College eleven is making
some reputation for itself this year.
It has not lost a game as yet and has
played a superior article of foot ball with
every aggregation against which it has
been pitted. The Eastern shore eleven is
heavy and is fast enough to stack well
against any of the combinations in this
section. It has played brilliantly in several
of its contests, and in none has it
shown lack of aggressive ability.
The Maryland Aggies lost to St. John's
last Saturday by a decisive score for
two reasons. One was that the eleven
went completely to pieces and failed to
do that of which it was capable, and
the other was that it was up against an
exceptionally classy team for a small
college. St. John's has a backfleld which
Is superior to anything that has ever
represented the school and is stronger
than any that has ever played behind the
line of a Maryland state college. It has
a heavy line plunger, a very capable
cjuartefback who can .run in thto broken
field, and two halfbacks who are heavy
and strong. Wilson, one of those backs,
is also perhaps one of the most accurate
throwers of the forward pass In the |
rvard Mi
country. That he did not get off many
successful passes against the Fanners
was due to the fact that he was speelally
watched.
The majority of the press reports sent
out from Annapolis gave the Aggies
more than they deserved. They did not
play as capable a game as they are given
credit for having done. The Farmers
looked no more like the team which defeated
Hopkins than chalk looks like
cheese, nor as much, because some faint
resemblance might be imagined in that
case. A prediction that Johns Hopkins
will defeat St. 'John's will not be far
o mi co
Catholic University Is having its troubles.
It has been found Impossible to
get the men out to practice regularly,
and the players themselves have not been
able to get into the practice as consistently
as they would like for several reasons.
The men have been kept on the
side lines because' of faculty rulings, injuries
and other objections. Consequently.
the coaches have been unable to stall
off the defeats which have been received.
No foot ball team can have a successful
season without consistent and hard
practice. It lias been unable to accomplish
much for that' reason, the only
game in which it has made a creditable
showing being that with Villanova. Poor
work in several departments of the game
have done much to cause the poor showing,
the mediocreness of the play being
due as much as anything else to a lack
of time in which to school the men.
Georgetown should not halve much trouble
in winning from North Carolina Saturday.
V. P. I. trimmed the Tar Heels
last week by a wide margin, and it is
likely that the Blue and Gray eleven will
accomplish a victory by an even wider
margin if it so desires, unless by some
great stroke of fortune the southern
eleven should take a great brace.
Georgetown showed great strength in
its game with Carlisle, much stronger
than has been evidenced by any other
combination in the south this season.
There is little question that if the Blue
and Gray maintain its standard of the Carlisle
game in the other contests, it will
win the remaining contests on its schedule.
Of course, there is the ever-present
possibility that the eleven, being conditioned
especially to meet the Carlisle and
Virginia elevens, will strike a tartar
Thanksgiving day when it meets the Virginia
Polytechnic team. Bocock will
gauge his season so that his team will
*- ? *? *- > via whikn If fflona "\X P
IJtJ III lis urst Bliafcr nuv*i *v * * .
I. that day, and Georgetown will not
have as easy sailing as might be expected.
There is no backfleld in the south today
which will in anywise compare with that
of Georgetown- Dunn, White. Murray
and Oostello form a ground-gaining combination
which is above the average of
any other quartet in the south, far above
any, in fact.
Jim Dunn lain a class by himself. It
is almost impossible to understand how
as large a man as he is able to dodge
with the speed and agility which he
shows almost every time he takes the
ball. Saturday at one time he struck
through the whole secondary Carlisle defense
after he cleared the line of scrimmage.
and was by it almost before it
could move from its tracks.
Technical High will meet Western tomorrow.
Judging by what was shown in
the game last week, the Red and White
eleven will not be the victor. It will be
up against a combination much heavier
than itself and will find that It is unable
to stall off the heavier opponent.
The Navy has begun that slow climb
which generally marks its progress toward
the close of the season. The Sailors
gfot away Saturday with a victory for
the first time since they defeated Johns
Hopkins in the opening contest of the
year, and that against a team which is
not weak by any means. The Navy
eleven will progress slowly from now until
the time it meets the Army, when it will
be in its tip-top shape. Despite the fact
that the Army has made a much more
creditable showing than the Navy so far,
there is little doubt that the Sailors will
put up a great struggle When the two
teams meet.
National Motor Boat Show.
NEW YORK, October 28.?The NewYork
national motor boat show will be
held in Madison Square Garden, February'
15 to 22, inclusive. The tremendous interest
that has been aroused in not only

of motor boating is evidenced more and
more each year by the increasing number
of marine enthusiasts, who look forward
to this annual exhibition of motor boats,
motors and accessories with the keenest
anticipation.

MERTINE
i^p,flappeni
BY J. ED GRIDLO.
There is no danger of Ty Cobb quitting
base ball because the Detroit club will
refuse to accede to his demands. Cobb
wants a three-year contract for $45,000
and he is verjf- apt to get it. At the rate
good ball players are being paid these
days, Cobb is entitled to all he has
asked, for the reason that he is not only
the greatest of them all, but he is the
best attraction in the game today, and
is one of the few players who help the
gate receipts regardless of what his
team's position in the race may be.
As yet there is no controversy over
the contract between Cobb and the Detroit
club and in fact there may not be,
but the story is going the rounds that
Cobb has confided to a friend that unless
he gets his price he will quit the game
and go into the brokerage business in
New York. That, of course, is all bosh,
for Cobb will never quit the game as
long as he can star in it, and. furthermore,
it is not likely that the Detroit
club would start a season without having
him in the line-up.
"Word comes from Shreveport that
Chick Gandll, the Nationals' great first
baseman, has undergone the operation of
having Ills tonsils removed. Gandll was i
greatly handicapped last season by a I
throat ailment and the operation should j
prove of igTeat benefit to him. As soon I
as Chick recovers from the effects of the
operation he proposes to go on a long
hunting trip.
Cleveland folks refuse to look upon
thh Naps' spurt this fall as indicating
better things next season. It seems to
have been the history of that team to
show high class during the last period
of the season, when there is little
chance to improve its position, and the
good showing during the closing weeks
of last season failed to arouse the interest
that might have been expected.
These belated spurts are considered to
be for the sole purpose of affecting the
next season's salary and not at all indicative
of the next season's accomplishments.
There is, however, no doubt
that Birmingham will have a better
team next season than Cleveland has
been able to boast of in several years.
The addition of Chapman and Johnston
has made a great difference in that
team. They are a couple of hustling
young ball players who put a lot of life
into the team?something that it has
lacked heretofore. There was a lot of
difference in the playing of the Naps '
after these youngsters got into the
line-up compared with its work previous
to that time.
Though the New York American
League team was a bitter disappointment
during the last campaign, that
club may prove a surprise next season.
On paper the team looks to have
a chance to beat out several of its
rivals. Injuries proved a great handicap
during the last campaign, when
there was really not a single occasion
when the team was intact. The absence
from the game of Cree and Wolter
made a lot of difference, and many
of the other good men on the team
were out of the game mast of the time.
Whtle, of course, nothing definite has
been decided upon, Wolverton not even
having been assured that he will succeed
himself, it seems certain that Cree,
Wolter and Lelivelt will All the out- |
field positions next season, and they j

Oakland Takes Pacific Coast League I
Flag From Vernon.
SAN FRANCISCO, October 28.?By tak- .
ing the last two games of the season \
from Los Angeles, the forenoon session
5 to 4 and the afternoon game in easier
fashion, 6 to 0, Oakland won the Pacific
Coast League base ball pennant yesterday
over Vernon by a fraction, of a .
game.
With less thn a full game lead, by reason
of having played two more games
during the season, Oakland came up to
the last game with a victory needed to l

are a hard-hitting: trio. Chase, notwithstanding
rumors to the contrary, j
will be found at first, while the infield ?
is to be made up of McMillan, Claude
Derrick and Midkiff, a youngster who ^
showed well during the short trial he t
got last fall. With Sweeney and Ster- t
rett to do the catching and a pitching ~
staff which compares favorably with
most in the league, there is a chance c
for the Highlanders to be prominent 5
in the race. s
Jim McAleer says that he will stand ^
pat with his Boston team for next sea- j
son. It seems but natural that he should t
be satisfied with a club which not only n
won the pennant, but a world's series, t
and yet time may show that an error a
was made by not figuring on some j
changes. Boston, like most teams, must
depend for its strength on three indi
viduals. Should it lose Wagner, Speaker
or Wood, the team would not stand a i
chance to repeat its performance of last t
season. An accident to either one of ^
these players would give the Red Sox a t
severe setback. It is, of course, not pos- q
sible to go out and secure players who i;
can take the place of any one of this li
trio, and yet it will be wise to have v
even a world's championship team forti- v
lied to the limit with utility material. \

Frank Chance has left Chicago for his
home in California. He says he is not
sure that he will ever return to the east 0
to be identified with the national game. j(
Notwithstanding the fact that he claims ^
to have numerous offers to take charge a
of other major league clubs, he has not a
accepted any offers or even opened ne- 0
gotiations with any club. Chance has j,
taken his dismissal from the Chicago tl

was mistreated and humiliated and it a
would not be at all surprising if he de- ^
oided to retire from the game. Chance g
not only proved himself a great ball p
player, but he was a most capable man- y
ager, and it seems strange that a man h
with so splendid a record as a leader p
should be allowed to retire. M
? t<
Richard Kinsella, for many years the c
owner of minor league clubs and of late ci
the scout for the St. Liouis Cardinals,
has come forward with a proposition p
which astounds base ball folk. He has of- tl
fered airs. Britton, the owner of the St. G
Louis National League club. $100,000 for N
the loan of the club for one year. He
agrees to pay this amount if he and Bres- ti
nahan are allowed to conduct the club \v
for one year. It is a most remarkable n
proposition and one which Mrs. Britton it
ought to accept without hesitancy. If tl
Kinsella can make good at St. Loui^1 he
will find a much wider field for the ef- s<
fectlve exercise of his undoubted finan- tl
cial talents here in the east. A club L
owner who can get $100,000 for turning f<
his club over for a single year would ai
surely jump at the chance. g'
