C. U. ELEVEN SHOWS
Director of Athletics Moran
Thinks the Team Will
Make Good Record.
GOLDEN IS DOING WELL
FOR GEORGETOWN VARSITY
Former Blue and Gray Prep Bids
Fair to Make a Begular
BY H. C. BYRD.
The Catholic University eleven is
howingr a lot of improvement, according:
to Director of Athletics Charley
Moran. The team as a whole is developing:
rapidly on the offensive and defensive.
and in its remaining: contests ~
should be able to put up strong- fights.
Says Moran. relative to the prospects
of the Brobklanders:
"While I hardly hope for the team to Bi
accomplish anything wonderful this
season it looks very much as though
we will get at least an even break in
our games. The eleven showed a lot Cl
of improvement from the time we
played M. A. C. till we met St. Johns, (
and there is every reason to believe
that the progress will be just as steady ^
in the future. The offense and defense sa
were much stronger and the team as a I
whole looked better than any other los
Catholic University aggregation I have j 1cm
ever seen. Somebody may be surprised CI
before the season is over. We have a j m?
good line and two pretty fair ends, pi'
Our baekfield has been a little weak, j in
but with Dobbins and Dougherty be- i mi
bind the line it looks much more pow- | on
"We play Villanova this Saturday, ot
and while we may not win from that bl<
experienced team, a better showing sc'
than usual will be made. "You can bank
on that. And, something else, we are
laying the foundation of a good tern ^
for next year. Practically every man Sa
now out for foot ball will return in z*
1M5, and the eleven then should be ex- Sc
ceptionallv strong. So much do I think ?
of our prospects for another year that **
I would like very much to schedule a Ir
contest with Georgetown." Ch
A practice scrimmage has been arranged
between the Business High
School and the Maryland Aggies for
today. If the high school team agrees, 1
it is more than likely that a regular +
contest will be played with the Farmera'
reserves. The Aggies have several
inexperienced but rather* heavy men on ^
their second squad who need to get ?c
>ome of the real play to develop, and r0
for them to meet high and prep school Sc<
elevens is about the only way they
will ever become acquainted with con- 3:

Hugh Golden is proving the surprise
f the foot ball season at Georgetown,
'he former Blue and Gray prep school I
oungster is coming through in great I
tyle for the varsity eleven, and bids
air to make a regular berth. Golden ?
as hardly expected to be capable of
olding a job on the first team when
e reported for practice, but so well
nas he been doing that it will be an
-xtremely difficult matter for any of
ae other men to take a regular posi- r r
on away from him.
Jack Downey won the five-mile race
eld by the Carroll Institute yesteray.
Downey had a small handicap xi
ver Covert, scratch man, but he fin'hed
better than that in the lead. The
?sult of the race was as follows:
Downey, 15 seconds, 26:15; Shanley, N(
:3U. 25 nat. i:ju, 25:02; noiiana, .uo,
1:55; Dougherty. 3. 27:55:0; Blummer,
:00; 28:26; Covert, scratch, 20:22. Tl
For the first time in its history, with
t ie exception of the contests it has
: iayed with the Army, the eleven rep- CL
resenting the Naval Academy will
; rave Annapolis Saturday to play on a
>reign field. The Sailors are to meet
le University of Pennsylvania team,
nd that will probably be the only real HC
ig contest they will have, with the
xception of the Army game.
It was expected that there would be a
reat demand for seats in Philadelphia,
nd such has proved to be true. The
>llowers of foot ball in that town
rem as desirous of seeing the Navy
, lay as any of the big university
ievens. It is rather strange for the A?
ailors to be on other territory than
their own. and their presence in
< juaker town will cause a great quick- M
* ning of interest. Th? demand for
r eats has been so great that extra
tands are being constructed, it being
eported that the Penn officials are Ml
taking arrangements to take care of
.iore than 25,000 persons.
Jack Hegarty, former Georgetown
layer, who is coach of the North
,'arolina A. and M. team, is figuring on
efeating the Blue and Gray again this
eason. A. and M. won the contest a
ear ago by 12 to 0, and Hegarty thinks p,
lis eleven is powerful enough to reDeat
he performance. And he does not hesiate
to say so. CI
Washington and Le is not making a
ecret of the fact that it thinks to get
he long end of the score over the Hilloppers
this week. The eleven representng
the Lexington school is said to he
xceptionally strong, and its followers are
ranking on getting the long end of the
core rather easily.
Both A. and M. and W. and L. are
apt to be greatly surprised when they
meet the Blue and Gray. though. Both
those teams art; figuring Georgetown IK
weaker this year than last because of the
absence of Harry Costello, but they will
be badly mistaken in that, as there ap- M
pears little doubt that the Hilltoppers
have a more powerful aggregation.
Georgetown now is a whole lot harder
team to score against than it was last N(
season, and by the time It meets the
other south Atlantic aggregations should
have a much more fully developed ofttrme.
CORNELL FENDS TWO STARS. LShuler
and Kleinert Showed Fine
Foot Ball Ability in Indian Game. H
ITHACA. N. Y., October 13.?As a result
of the fine playing of Shuler and j
Kleinert in the last half of the Indian
game last Saturday shifts in the Cornell L,j
back field are not Improbable, according .
to the belief of men in close touch with 1
the situation. No changes were made
yesterday, as the varsity team held no
regular outdoor practice, but the de- g,
velopments of the week will be awaited
with keen Interest on the hill.
Shuler's splendid work against the Indians
was a bit of the best backfleld I

very fast, dodged cleverly, and his ward- ! *
ing off of tacklers was most effective, i
Should he pain speed at starting he will j
become one of the best backs seen here
in some time. ; j (
Kleinert's line plunging also attracted I
much favorable comment Saturday, and 1
he, too. is likely to make a strong bid g,
for a place. His defensive work was not
aa good as Hill's, but he has been play- G
ing in the backfleld only a short time.
Harper Win? Where Johnson Fails.

Harper, youngest pitcher on the staff ^
of the Washington Americans, did yesterday
what Walter Johnson could not

Stars. 4 to 3. The game was
played in Hackensack Home. Harper

THE SLUGGER.?An intimate
friend of mine started playing golf
as a veritable slugger years ago.
He was tall, very strong, and put
every ounce of force he could muster
into the shot. He got terrific
distances when he connected with
the ball. After years of practice
he gradually acquired a moderate
degree of control and a good short
game, and made remarkably low
scores on occasion.
Aiiomer mena, wn?
started golf on the theory that
the game consists in hitting the
ball as hard as possible, is likewise
astounding the natives on a
course near New York. He gets
more crazy holes in one or two
under par than any one I know,
and yet seldom makes a card that
he will acknowledge.
Still another man I know went
into the game on the same theory
as No. 2. He continued in
the mistaken class for several
years, and would not listen to reason
or argument, making cards
anywhere from 97 to 112.
About a year ago this man.
No. 3, commenced to reduce the
brutality of his attack on the ball,
to cut down the length of his back
swing, and within three months he
was playing frequent rounds in the
low eighties, with occasional dips
into the seventies.

H. Parker Willis Discusses
Financial System Before
OBSTACLES TO STATE
Early Entry Into Fold Depends on
Way Clearance Feature Is Handled,
He serve Board Official Declares.
RICHMOND, Va.. October 13.?Activities
of the 2,000 American bankers here
for their fortieth convention were centered
today in sectional meetings of
their subsidiary organizations. H. Parker
Willis, secretary of the federal re
serve board, opened the way to discussion
of the nation's new financial
system at a joint meeting of the trust
company and savings bank sections.
^ He spoke, however, as a financial editor
and not as a reserve board official.
There was no rigid requirement in
the federal reserve act that would pre
vent state hanks from entering the
) system, Mr. Willis said. They would
merely have to conduct themselves in
a general way on the basis of banking
management required of national
He said that in a general way it had
been found that the two principal obstacles
to the entry of state institutions
into the federal reserve system
"The existence of a large element of
real estate loans in the portfolios of
"The existence of what are called
'excessive loans,' by which is meant
loans to single persons or individuals
greater than the amount permitted
under the national banking law."
"It has been rightly assumed by the
state institutions that they ought to
eliminate these two grounds of criticism
if they expect to enter the system."
said Mr. Willis. "A good many
have suggested that they be given a
reasonable amount of time to comply
with the requirements of the system, it
being recommended that such time
should include a period ranging from
six months to three years."
? Points Out Advantages.
He pointed out that it would be of
greater benefit to state banks and trust
I companies doing a commercial business
> to enter the system than to others engaged
more largely in investments and
Mr. Willis said the main motive that
probably would impel state banks to
Join the new system would be found in
the clearing mentioned. "If the clearance
provision in the federal reserve
act proves successful," said Mr. Willis,
"it may be expected that business will
be transferred to the member banks by
those who will appreciate the immense
advantage open to them as a result of
the provisions freeing them from the
oppressive conditions to which they
have been subjected in regard to domestic
"We may say, therefore, that the
early entry of state banks into the system
depends in a very large measure
on the way in which the clearance
feature is handled and the extent to
which the clearing function is taken
! over by the federal reserve banks un.
der instructions from the federal reserve
board. Provided that this work
is undertaken courageously and successfully,
the result will be to enlarge
very greatly the membership of the
federal reserve system. This opinion
I advance simply as a personal opin
Members of the savings bank and
trust company sections indicated their
attitude toward the entry of state banks
into the new federal system by recommending
to the general convention ( that
a committee be appointed to take up
with the reserve board and congressional
committees amendments to the reserve
law. The amendments to be proposed, it
was said, would make acceptance of mem1
bership by state banks, trust companies
; and savings banks more attractive. Appointment
of the committee was proposed
' by Sol Wexler of New Orleans. One
need for the entry of state banks, he
i said, consisted of regulations to permit
them to continue business as now con'
> The proposal for the appointment of
; the committee will be taken up in the
general convention Thursday.
George M. Reynolds, president of the
t Continental and Commercial National
Bank of Chicago, and A. Barton Hep5
burn of the Chase National Bank of
New York, sent letters to the joint ses
sion stating in a general way that it
would be wise for state banks to await
J the result of the experiment with the
new banking system before deciding
1 to enter it.
A. J. Hemphill, president of the Guaranty
Trust Company of New York, and
iC. L>. Hulbert, vice president of the
? Merchants' Loan and Trust Company of
Chicago, expressed similar views. They
' agreed that the federal reserve act
would require amendment before state
; institutions could enter.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
CHICAGO, October 13.?Reports of
liberal European buying at Kansas City
helped bring about an advance today in
the wheat market here. The bulls were
also assisted by continued falling off in
receipts at Winnipeg, and by the lightness
of world shipments. The fact that
seeding operations in Europe were decidedly
backward counted further
against the bears. After opening unchanged
to % higher, prices made a
general all-round upturn.
Wet weather, likely to delay the movement
of the crop, put strength into the
corn market. There was a noticeable
lack of speculative offerings. The opening,
which ranged from % to % higher,
was followed by a moderate additional
Oats hardened with ether cereals. Besides.
rural holders were said to be
showing an increased disposition to
await better quotations.
Lower prices for hogs carried provisions
downgrade. There was fair
buying, however, at the decline.

IN SECURITY CIRCLES
High Bates for Carrying Cause
Traders to Take Over
Asking- Prices on New Street Market?Elect
for Bate Advance.
BY I. A. FLEMING.
J While the price limits for various se- j
| curitles as made by the New York ;
! Stock Exchange have prevented very J
much trading, being* generally slightly
above the actual open market values,
j the high rates of interest have.been the
: cause of many owners of securities taking
their stocks out of the hands of
1 brokers, to the relief of the situation.
' Moreover, elsewhere margins have been
; greatly increased and for the very same
, reason, the high rates of carrying
' charges, putting the existing conditions
in just that much better shape for the
opening of the exchange when it shall
, be decided upon.
The stock exchange committee of five
! has reduced prices at which transactions
are permitted by the amount of
, dividends paid. On some of the lead'
ing stocks the prices are as follows:
Baltimore and Ohio, 69; St. Paul, 82%;
' General Klectric, 137; Consolidated Gas,
115; Lehigh Valley, 119 %; New York
Central, 78%; Pennsylvania, 103%;
Union Pacific, 77; Westinghouse, 64 V*;
Steel common, 50%, and Steel preferred,
Curb Market Broadens.
The curb market oroadens. Wall
street doesn't exactly like the quota1
tlons on the New street fiarket, but
[ there are more trades made there
I than at the exchange committee's figures.
As trading is for cash and that only
no serious fault can be found with it.
Here are the asking prices, which are
not far away from bid quotations on
' the New street open market; Amalgamated
Copper, 42%; Beet Sugar. 23;
American Can, 18%; Smelting. 49%;
American Sugar, 104; Anaconda. 23%;
Atchison, 85%; Baltimore and Ohio, 65;
. Brooklyn Rapid Transit, 7 8%; Canadian
Pacific, 155%; Chesapeake and Ohio,
39%; St. Paul, 80%; Chino. 26%; Consolidated
Gas, 114%; Brie, 18%; Great
Northern, 109%; General Motors, 68;
Illinois Central, 103; Lehigh Valley,
120; Miami Copper. 17; Missouri Pacific,
8%; New York Central, 75%; New

Pacific, 80; Union Pacific, 108%;
United States Rubber, 45%; United

101%; Western Union, 62.
In this list only American Beet Sugar,
American Sugar, Brooklyn Rapid Transit,
General Motors, Canadian Pacific,
Missouri Pacific and United States
Rubber are selling higner than the
minimum price named in the stock exchange
list. General Motors has risen
more than 9 points.
At a meeting of the shareholders of
' the Washington-Virginia Railway Company,
largely attended by proxies, the
following directors of the company
were re-elected: * Frederick H. Treat,
Norman Grey, Gardner L. Boothe, Dar

Church and R. W. King. Many of the
directors were absent, being in attendance
at the street railways' convention
at Atlantic City, at the hankers' convention,
Richmond, or elsewhere.
Better Conditions in Oil Markets.
Commenting on the present condition
of the oil industry and the outlook for
the future, the head of one of the leading
companies hazarded the prediction
that the worst was over, and that it
would not take long for the Standard
Oil Company fully to recover from its
This optimistic view is set forth in
the following words:
"I think that the worst has passed
as far as the oil industry is concerned.
Conditions prevailing during the past
few months that were brought about
by the immense flush production and
the V aropean war are now gradually
clea >ng. Except in Oklahoma fields.
th pipe lines are again taking all the
crude oil production.
"I think that the effect of the war on
the big oil refining and marketing companies
has been somewhat exaggerated.
Although a few of the companies doing
a big business with Europe have been
vu^vi. uh iimoi ui mem nas
not been very serious, and the big
Standard Oil companies that were affected
were financially well prepared
for such an emergency. In other words,
the Standard Oil companies generally
are on a war footing financially. As
soon as general conditions show a good
improvement, it will not take the .
Standard Oil companies long to recover ,
from their recent setback."
Reopening of Exchange.
While many are clamoring for the ^
opening of the New York exchange, the
general impression at this time seems
to favor closure until the beginning of
1915. To do business the situation 1
must be cleared: the present holders 1
of open trades would take them up 1
if possible, as they are the chief (
objection to reopening, with the exception
of the foreign holdings that !
might come back on our markets. The
only way to prevent it is to put such i
value under American investments that
Europe will be satisfied with their holdings?by
giving the railroads of the '
country the right to make their business
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com- <
pany is giving wide circulation to the ,
needed relief as expressed in the following:
"Who possesses the power to restore attractiveness
in American securities? The
interstate commerce commission has that <
power. How shall it proceed? By grant- (
ing, without 'hemming or hawing*,a liberal
increase in freight rates such as x
will restore the integrity of American f
railroad securities in the eyes of in- 1
vestors not only of Europe, but of the ^
United States. The present is an emer- *
gency?the greatest ever faced by this 1
country. A little bridging and the s
United States may step upon a solid
rock which will hold its position of
first commercial importance indefinitely.
Will the government authorities
of the united States permit the nation
to step into this coveted position?
The question is not one of patriotism,
but of business common sense. '
"Should the commission later discover ?
that it had gone too far in permitting J
flat rate increases it could easily right
its error by new rulings ordering reduc- *
tions. Before now the interstate com- '
merce commission has reversed Itself. All Z
wise men have reversed themselves. The
Unitd States Supreme Court has reversed
Itself. Before the war the people i
had begun quite generally to say, to
themselves and openly, that business had
been pounded enough during the past ten
years and the last month of war has done
"more to further develop this more favorable
attitude than a normal year could
have done. It is not improbable that in
the same or a greater degree the war i
conditions have developed the outlook and f
the practical business capacity of the in- 5
terstate commerce commission." 4
