NEW YORK. December 12.?Rumors are abroad today of impending
changes in the athletic management at West Point. One story
indicates a general rearrangement, while another relates to the
foot ball coaching system. One report has it that Maj. Charles Daly
will not be in charge of foot ball at the academy next season, but on the
other hand, it i:. rumored that he will remain at West Point, but will
have the assistance of a held coach who has not heretofore been asso
ciated with Army gridiron attairs.
Harvard, with a smaller stadium |
than Yale or Princeton, and yet a ;
larger demand for tickets than either, i
is in a bad way. This fall she was '
able to accommodate only 28.000 Har- j
vard undergraduates, alumni and j
their families. Vale's allotment was j
2:1.000. When it is realized that Har- |
vard has more than 6.000 students
and 70.000 alumni the intricacies of
the problem with which the athletic
association has to deal is apparent.

Brewer of Maryland I'raiaed.
My friend Parke Davis, in setting
forth the extraordinary plays of the
;oot ball season, has overlooked]
Krooks Brewer of the I'niversity of
i Maryland. The inclement conditions
prevailing: over most sections of the
east on Thanksgiving day will be
recalled. Yet in Baltimore' on that
day two drop kicks of Brewers
served to tie up the North Carolina
game. 6 to 6. North Carolina had
scored a touchdown on a forward
pass in the first quarter. Maryland,
in the second period, after a tine
advance to the Tarheels' 35-yard
mark, the gridiron a sea of mud and
water, sent young Brewer to the 42
yard line. The spot on which he
stood was normally second base of]
the Baltimore Orioles* ball grounds. I
i The mud was two inches deep; the I
pigskin was dropped for the kick
| into a pool of water. Yet a heavy,
mud-coated ball went over the bar
from that 42-yard mark with the
speed and accuracy of a bullet.

The story sent out from Atlanta
that H. C. Byrd had made charges
against the eligibility of certain
| Georgetown University players has
[ been tfnajly and definitely refuted.
Edwin Camp, managing editor of the
Atlanta Georgian, in which Byrd's
alleged charges first appeared, has
written a letter to Vincent S. Mc
Donough. director of athletics at
i Georgetown, repudiating and disa- |
vowing the article which one of his
reporters wrote. The article had
been declared utterly false in a resi
lution pased by the southern inter
collegiate conference, during whose
sessions the charges were alleged to
have been made. I

BEXXV BOYXTOX, member of Walter Camp's all-American squad last
year, yesterday demonstrated to more than 5.000 foot ball devotees
gathered at American League Park just why he was so honored
by the sage of the gridiron. Playing with the Senators against Jim
Thorpe's Cleveland Tigers, the erstwhile Williams College quarterback '
ran through and about the opposition, passed and punted in pleasing style I
and checked manv assaults of the westerners. !
As a fining climax to a day of great
play, Benny, just two minutes before

\This Sunday I am going to begin
? with the men folks, bless 'em, for a
change. I'm fussy about the mas
culine collar, and I think a good many
women are. We like our men folk to
wear graceful, easy looking collars that
have a swagger to them. The other day
I saw a man of my acquaintance, who
knows dress from A to Z, and I was so
entranced by his particular collar that I
actually asked him its name, and he
actually told me?and that collar's just
a peach. You have only to persuade a
man to try one to have him agree with
me It'* a marvel in more ways than
one, for it has the comfort of a soft col
lar an4 the appearance of a starched
one, and can be washed at home as
easily as a handkerchief. It is said not
to 4hrink nor wrinkle, nor yet to wilt. It
requires no starching, has no artificial
stiffening and no saw edges to hurt
either the neck or the shirt. There are
several shapes from which to choose, but
there it one in particular?the one this
well dressed man wore?which is becom
ing to the average man, and I person
ally am quite mad about it. The price
it fifty cents. Be sure when you call on
my phone or write to my department to
ask for both the name of the make and
the name of tlie particular style of collar
to which I refer. It sounds like a wild
yarn, but a couple of days ago a man
assured me most elaborately that he
knew a man who managed with only
two of these collar* all his summer vaca

NEW YORK, December 12.?Boxing:
managers and sport promoters of New

Sports Alliance, an organization de
signed to protect participants in, and
further the growth of professional

"This organization," Gibson __ ex
plained, "is not to be a small clique,
but a representative body composed
of reputable men of affairs who be- j
lieve in fair play to the professional."
Charles Harvey, Edward Meade,
Daniel Morgan. Jack Curley, Leo
Flynn, Daniel McKetrick and William
Wellman, boxing magnates and pro
moters, and Benny Leonard were
elected to the board of governors.
The organization announced it
would lay plans for its operations at
a meeting next week. Charles A.
White, former secretary of the box
ing commission, who was named sec
retary, said the constitution had been
drawn with the idea of its being- ac- ,
ceptable to the American Federation j
of Labor if the alliance ever decided ;
to affiliate with the union.
